30/8/21 – MARTY’S DAILY ALBUM PICKS

Music today was Steve Gunn’s new album Other You (2021). He once was in Kurt Vile’s band but he’s made an impressive run of solo albums. I bought Way Out Weather (2014) and really liked it but I haven’t kept up. I’ve listened to Other You three times whilst typing and I’m not sure exactly what I think yet but I do like it. I like his thing and it reminds me that some records need to be listened to a few times. You can’t expect for music to always be immediate. You can grow to like something too, you just have to keep on playing it. The problem is that these days there’s so much music out there it seems almost impossible to give multiple proper listens, even to something you really like. I’ll be playing this a few times and trying to listen without doing something else, another forgotten skill.
