The Fortnightly Playlist, September 24th, 2018 ( The Late Edition)

Vacation was good. Thanks for asking. Clearly, I wasn’t so off the grid as I still managed to put together a pretty good collection of tunes here if I do say so myself. Some great new music here from Natalie Prass, Open Mike Eagle, Allan Kingdom, The Hold Steady, Low, and Disclosure.

Last year’s Brick Body Kids Still Daydream by Open Mike Eagle just missed my year end top ten. I want to say it landed somewhere in the 11 to 15 range. It also featured my favorite album art of 2017. I was pretty happy to hear of his new single, “Relatable”. Mike Eagle is a pretty unique artist, and perhaps an artist that could only happen here and now. It’s never fair to pigeonhole an artist, but if you said Mike Eagle is a grad-school rapper… well, if the shoe fits. He’s got complex songs with relevant messages delivered eloquently, and it’s got an edge to it as well. It’s impressive and always worth a listen.

Please take note of Natalie Prass. Discovering this artist was a discovery and a half.. The Future and The Past is her 2nd album, and it was released early this summer. It’s certainly worth a few listens.
