Gather 'Round

And catch up with these subtly awesome recent releases. Alternate title: List is Digs.
1My Morning Jacket
The Waterfall II

Gorgeous sequel to the 2015 first installment. I hear the Beach Boys/Beatles as well as more modern influences like Tame Impala and Arctic Monkeys. Amazing record that just might be my favorite MMJ release. "And as the snow glazed all the trees, I let my thoughts float on with the breeze / The air rushed in my lungs, said to me: Welcome home." (2020)
2Ruston Kelly

Recent divorce with Kacey Musgraves brought him to my attention. Catchy, rock-oriented country with a beautiful soul. "I drank your poison, fell under your spell / Love is hell and nothing more than black magic." (2017)
Songs of Sonoma Mountain

Simple in its composition but pristinely produced. Acoustic/string-laden folk that gets better as you learn the lyrics. "When I was younger I cried / Now that I'm older, I hide." (2020)
4Willie Nelson
First Rose of Spring

Not bad for an 87 year old. Here he doesn't sound a day over 79! All jest aside, this is a breezy, beautiful country album from an absolute legend that deserves more attention on this site. "Auburn hair like a sunrise, sweetest smile he'd ever seen / Butterflies, they danced around on her, like the first rose of spring." (2020)
Light of the Risen Year

mewithoutYou bassist's project. Much mellower than mwY, but that earnest spirit is ever present in the soft glowing atmosphere. "I am a boat out on the blue...I'll go on living without you." (2020)
Nearer My God Remixes

"Grand Paradise" remix might hit even harder than the original. Chills. "I'M SHOCK COLLARED AT THE GATES OF HEAVEN!!!" (2019)
