Not to be too bushy-tailed about being back in the office, but a nice thing about returning after a fortnight away has been the pile of new music awaiting me. Below, I’ve shared as much of the good stuff as I can, but please make a special effort to check out Israel Nash, whose second album is an absolute killer if you appreciate a) CSNY’s live takes of “Down By The River”; b) My Morning Jacket up to “It Still Moves”; c) “No Other; d) Jonathan Wilson solo albums. Post very much in character here, I guess.
