Back in 1997, the late great singer-songwriter Eliot Smith put out an album of sad, hushed songs called "Either/Or." In a few months, it gets reissued in honor of its 20th anniversary, and it features outtakes like this one called, "I Figured You Out."
One For The Road
We revisit a song, recorded live at our show in New York last Spring, which we've never shared before. It's from one of our favorite folk-pop musicians, the aptly named Emmy the Great. She serenaded us with a cover of a Sandy Denny tune.
Since it's that time of year, we thought a holiday song might be appropriate. It's a brand new one written by Sandy's - a band obsessed with all things surfing and this track is no different. It's called "Surfy Christmas."
Amber Coffman's stunning voice and gorgeous harmonies are a big component of beloved indie group The Dirty Projectors. She recently announced a forthcoming solo album called, "City of No Reply." Here's the first single. It's entitled, appropriately, "All to Myself."
Leonard Cohen -- yes that Leonard Cohen -- has a new album out in a couple of weeks. It's called "You Want it Darker." Check out the first track off that album.
Joan Shelley is a Kentucky-based singer-songwriter who releases new music every September. Her latest is a single called "Cost of the Cold."
Cass McCombs, the modern-day troubadour whose songwriting has long been a favorite of other musicians. His new album called "Mangy Love" is out in August. Here's a track from it called "Opposite House."
Singer Jamila Woods has been featured on some Chance The Rapper tracks, as well as a Macklemore single. But this week she releases an album of her own. It's called "Heavn." Here's the eponymous single.
Steve Gunn is gearing up to release his new album called, "Eyes on the Line." It comes out June 3rd. Here's the single "Ancient Jules" -- a great soundtrack for (fittingly!) summer days on the road.
Emmy the Great's debut album "First Love" was named one of the best of the year by The New York Times. Her new album -- cunningly-titled "Second Love" -- just came out. She joined us on stage in New York, for a special rendition of her song "Swimming Pool." Check out a video of the performance below.
