Inspired by Numero Group’s compilation Cosmic American Music we felt we wanted to do a take on that theme. However, as neither of us have so much country records in our collections this episode turned out to be a little bit more eclectic with songs inspired by American roots music in general, so it will be some country-tinged tracks but also blues and folk. As we had more tunes lined up than we could squeeze into this episode we will return with a part 2 of this theme. Featured in this episode is also two contemporary artists, Part-Time Lover and Evan Haywood, as we continue with our new segment of playing modern music. Part-Time Lover will release an EP in October on Blue Arrow Records in Cleveland and included here is one of the tracks, “Magic Child”. Evan Haywood is just finishing up his second album “Perfumed Gardens” and we play “Ashes of Oblivion” from the LP.
