Purchase log picks, May 2020

[Various Artists - I Still Play]

My Very Own Familiar, Dear Listener: Lawnchairs for the Apocalypse

A friend of mine posted he was releasing an album recorded during the lockdown in Washington that started in March. This is that album, and it’s available only on YouTube. Also, it’s damn good.

Robyn, Body Talk

I’m disappointed in myself for not grabbing a copy of this album on vinyl on Record Store Day 2019.

Perfume Genius, Set My Heart on Fire Immediately

I’m slowly coming around to Perfume Genius. I don’t know if I’ll explore the early albums, but these last two have appealed to me greatly.

Jason Isbell and 400 Unit, Reunions

I like this album more than The Nashville Sound, but I don’t like it as much as Here We Rest or Something More Than Free. But finding a bad Jason Isbell album is like trying to find a bad Emmylou Harris album.

Timo Andres / Jeremy Denk / Brad Mehldau / Randy Newman, I Still Play

I’m going to miss Bob Hurwitz’s leadership of Nonesuch Records. The label seems to be moving in a more Americana direction since his retirement, and while the partnership with New Amsterdam Records is tailor made, I can’t help but feel Nonesuch is outsourcing its A&R for modern classical music.
