The Hits (And One Big Miss)

Staggering towards the end of the year, we find ourselves literally on our last Leggies. In no particular order, here are some new releases I enjoyed this year that you might want to check out (or not, as the mood takes you):

"14 Steps To Harlem" - Garland Jeffreys
"Bedouine" - Bedouine
"Moonshine Freeze" - This Is The Kit
"Hallelujah Anyhow" - Hiss Golden Messenger
"What In The Natural World" - Jake Xerxes Fussell
"Earl Grey" - Girl Ray
"Adios" - Glen Campbell
"Lenore" - Lenore
"Ad Out" - Dylan Hicks
"A Short History Of Decay" - John Murry
"Bobby Fuller Died For Our Sins" - Chuck Prophet
"From Where I Started" - Sera Cahoone

I have featured a number of them on here already, and the good folks at For The Sake Of The Song have already beaten me to it with one of the others. So here are some cracking tunes from a few of those that remain.

"Monday Tuesday" - Girl Ray

"Hotter Colder" - This Is The Kit

"Wrong Man" - John Murry

And with that, it is time for me to say goodbye until 2018 with the help of one of this year's most lamented - the great Glen Campbell. Adios.
