One of the things I love most about Spotify is that I feel like I am always discovering new to me artists, either through the related artists section or because I am willing to give a musician “a go” whereas previously I might not have bought an album. I say new to me because the artists I’m discovering aren’t always new to everyone; in fact, some have been around for years but they have passed me by.
That’s the case with today’s pick – Frank Turner – whose last album was released in 2015. How I’ve missed him I’m not quite sure as he’s right up my street – a singer-songwriter with a political bent. After discovering him a few weeks ago, I’ve not been able to stop listening to him. I like that his music is pared back and that it has a bite. The song I’ve picked for today is off his last album, positive songs for negative people, which I think is a great title because so many people I meet nowadays are down on the world; I’ve gone for The Next Storm, which hit me “just right” the first time and hasn’t grown old yet.
What do you think? What about you – what are you listening to on repeat at the moment?
