Music today has been all over the place as usual with Greta Van Fleet’s new album The Battle At Garden’s Gate (2021), tearing it up for Zep and seventies rock fans where at the other end of the scale (sort of), Q readers are smoothly listening to London Grammar’s new album, Californian Soil (2021). In reality, I suppose it’s all rock and pop and that’s been going on like this for a very long time, nothing new but that doesn’t mean it’s not any good, it depends on what you’re after but there are definitely two memorable voices here with Josh Kiszka and Hannah Ried. In between, I listened to my iPod and the double CD The Essential Simon And Garfunkel. I’d been listening to Paul Simon talk about his songwriting and it was quite interesting so I thought I’d listen to a collection. It didn’t get out of the sixties and seventies but there are some memorable songs on there. Mrs. Robinson, The Boxer, Feeling Groovy, The Sound Of Silence, Homeward Bound, A Hazy Shade Of Winter, I Am A Rock, Bridge Over Troubled Water, America, and many more.
