Best in Show
It begins by sounding like Curtis Mayfield playing an Isley Brothers tune, and just gets better from there. “You Ain’t the Problem” is this this week’s Best In Show. It’s from the third album by Michael Kiwanuka, simply titled Kiwanuka. Here in the US, most folks will know him from the theme song to the HBO series, Big Little Lies. His new album will be available October 25. For more information visit michaelkiwanuka.com.
This week our Best In Show is “Peach Fuzz” by CAAMP. The band came to life in Athens, Ohio and began as a project between childhood friends Taylor Meier and Evan Westfall, who met at a summer camp in middle school. Their second album, By and By is on Mom+Pop Records and these guys represent the new face of folk music…For more info visit caamptheband.com.
We’re staying the summertime groove with our Best In Show selections. This week it’s “Supply & Demand” by self-described “connoisseur of intention on the winding road to ruin”, Wilder Woods. The song can be found on the very recently released self-titled album, courtesy of Atlantic Records. For more information visit iamwilderwoods.com.
We’re happy to present P.P. Arnold‘s “Baby Blue” as this week’s Best In Show! Meticulously produced by Ocean Colour Scene’s Steve Cradock, the immediately classic sounding recording is included on The New Adventures of P.P. Arnold, her first album in 51 years! The album will be released on August 9. For more info please visit pparnold.com.
In keeping with the season, this week’s Best In Show is from Dublin’s own Harvest Ministers! The latest single from the long running nom de plume of songwriter Will Merriman, “Summer’s Here Again” is (as he says) “…best enjoyed from the comfort of a rocking chair wearing a Kinks’ t-shirt or similar.” For more info please visit theharvestministers.bandcamp.com.
