Now, it’s no secret that I like my music. I do. It’s important and it’s brilliant and wonderful when it’s done well. And, thanks to places like Jango and Amazing Radio I’ve made a number of very cool discoveries over the past few years.
And I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that last week’s discovery could well be the best.
‘These Friends Of Mine’ is Rosie Thomas’ 4th album (I think). It was recorded in a house and released in 2006. Its sound is small, almost a whisper at times, but it’s so strong and honest too. And beautiful. I think that’s the best way to describe it. It is a thing of great beauty. The words, too, are the same.
It’s so good, in fact, that after buying the album from iTunes I went on to order the actual CD. I can’t remember the last time that happened. Mariee Sioux was one who received that treatment way back in 2006 and I bought a Jaymay CD last year.
I am more than a little bit in love with it. Here are a few reasons why.
As you were.
