One of the greatest living songwriters, Josh Ritter is also one of my favourite artists. Somehow, foolishly, I’ve failed to include any of his lyrics in my amazingly popular ‘Lyrics I Love’ section. Well, that all changes today. Below are lyrics from “Harrisburg”, a track from his sophomore record Golden Age of Radio. And hey look! I’ve even included a music video! How convenient!

Having only released one single before today – “Headroom” – they’ve no less … Continue reading There’s no ignoring Skinner’s new single

The four albums they’ve released to date prove it, and if one song was to encapsulate their greatness, it may just be “Night-Blooming Cereus”.

Picking a Track of the Week (when I remember to) is easy when great songs come along.
