Music today has been my latest discovery Odetta Hartman and her two albums Old Rockhounds Never Die (2015) and 222 (2018). It’s some kind of country, raw, sometimes psychedelic, other times weird and she must be due for another album soon. There’s no Wikipedia page for her.

Earlier, I played Robin Trower’s third album For Earth Below (1975) and The StonesBeggars Banquet (1968), both great in different ways. After that, it was Valerie June’s new album, The Moon And Stars, Prescriptions For Dreamers (2021). This from the Rough Trade site:

Conjuring a next-generation fusion of folk, soul, gospel, country and transcendental blues, The Moon and Stars, Prescriptions For Dreamers, Valerie June’s third full-length album for Fantasy Records is a deeply affecting work of genuine beauty and unassuming wonder.

I saw her live once in Stockholm, a smallish but packed house. I bought her first album, Pushin’ Against A Stone (2013). The album between these two, The Order Of Time (2017), I somehow missed. She has a unique voice and is quite a personality, great if you like this kind of thing.
