Hello! Guess what? It’s September. There are only three months left until Christmas…here are some things you might like a bit more than those two facts.
Phoebe Bridgers – Scott Street
In this new video, Bridgers hires a collection of lookalikes to dress up like her, to the point where it actually gets a bit difficult to tell them apart. They sing, have a bit of a dance, play on trampolines, ride the bus, and hit a piñata together. Where can I sign up?
Prince – 17 Days
A new version of Prince’s song, 17 Days, has been shared. Originally released in 1984 as a b-side to When Doves Cry, the new rendition is, in true Prince style, super funky and has a whole lot for rhythm for just one singer and his piano. It also features snippets of comments and chat between the musician and the sound engineers. I could listen to this all day.
The track comes off a posthumous album, ‘Piano & A Microphone 1983’, due for release on September 21.
Fleet Foxes – I Am All That I Need / Arroyo Seco / Thumbprint Scar
The ever-enticing folk band have shared a video for the opener from their latest album, ‘Crack-Up’.
Shot in Alabama Hills, a desert in Lone Pine, California, a house in Palm Springs, the video sees a man running – towards or away – a surreal, digital red cube.
Watch the video, directed by Sean Pecknold – frontman Robin’s older brother – below.
David Crosby – Glory
To finish, here’s just a really nice song. Some chilled-out guitar chords to take you into the weekend. Crosby is joined by Becca Stevens, Michael League of Snarky Puppy and Michelle Willis for this track, and a full album, ‘Here If You Listen’, due for release on October 26.
Happy weekend x
