It’s New Music Monday! Today I shall be listening to Songs From the Seasons by Joshua Burnell, who is doing folk rock better than anyone I’ve heard in recent years:

A couple of songs by Rachel Newton from a BBC session:
I just love the fact that there’s an entire genre of music called “murder ballads”
I first came across that term with this:
Me too , it was that Nick Cave album and the duet with Kylie Minogue that brought them into my radar.
Yes - great song.

Another Nick Cave favourite:

This is like putting the bloody batsignal on for Meadows
