We Hear 26 May 2012

June is almost upon us and I was down in Portland last weekend so it feels right to feature the Decemberists in this week’s We Hear. Their most recent album, The King is Dead, is more folk-rock/country than their previous work and makes for a great road-trip record. Staying on the folk theme, I’ve been listening to a lot of John Martyn lately. If there was ever one musician’s voice, talent and musicality then I was able to have, John Martyn would be high on my list of names. And finally, some music for those quiet summer evenings: the joyous soul of Al Green. There is something so happy about the way he sings, it always makes me smile.
