Alvvays - Dreams Tonite

I pre-ordered the album this morning, bundling it with this rad t-shirt:

Hi, Mari. Long time no see. This is lovely. :=)

I've been let down by a few releases this year (coughheartworms), but I'm pretty happy with Fleet Foxes and Alvvays so far.

Yusuf / Cat Stevens - The Laughing Apple released September 15, 2017

I'm finally digging into this album and I'm very impressed! Yusuf hasn't sounded more comfortable since his return to popular music with 2006's An Other Cup. This album is an all-around call-back to his earlier material. From the artwork, to the songs, to collaborating with guitarist Alun Davies and producer Paul Samwell-Smith. For those interested, here is a breakdown of the song origins...

1. Blackness of the Night (previously released on 'New Masters')
2. See What Love Did To Me
3. The Laughing Apple (previously released on 'New Masters')
4. Olive Hill
5. Grandsons (previously released on 'Very Best of Cat Sevens' and 'On the Road to Find Out' Box Set)
6. Mighty Peace (written in the '60s)
7. Mary and the Little Lamb (written in the '60s)
8. You Can Do (Whatever) (written in the '70s for Harold and Maude)
9. Northern Wind (Death of Billy the Kid) (Previously released on 'New Masters')
10. Don't Blame Them
11. I'm So Sleepy (Previously released on 'New Masters')

A lot of really nice moments here. I love the production. Early favorites include You Can Do (Whatever), Blackness of the Night, Mighty Peace, Northern Wind, and Don't Blame Them. He sounds incredible considering his debut was 50 years ago!

You know, I never thought I would ever say this, but I really enjoyed that new Harry Styles album. I really like his song "Sign of the Times," it never gets old for me.

Hi retrokid (assuming you still look in). Harry had an hour-long show on BBC-TV last night. He has a brilliant backing band and the performances were uniformly excellent. They included a couple of great covers, one of which was "Girl Crush":

New Father John Misty album on the way. I continue to be uncertain as to my own feelings about him: so talented, yet I can't really get into the comedy schtick (although he occasionally does crack me up).

Congrats to Misty for becoming a new father....
