The World is Crowded

(compiled June 20, 2015)

 LONG OVERDUE (travel got in the way) playlist inspired by recent albums and recent live shows from two of my FAVORITE ARTIST, courtney barnett​ and Unknown Mortal Orchestra​ (UMO). It’s also heavily inspired by two incredible Melbourne-based artists, Harrison Storm​ and Kagu​, that I was lucky enough to discover and to watch live in Melbourne. It’s also inspired by new albums from Alabama Shakes​, Sufjan Stevens​, and Twerps​. Every song on UMO’s new album is ACE, but I particularly drawn to ‘The World is Crowded’ because of the catchy, soulful lyrics and siiiiiiiiiiick guitar. Can’t not help get FUNKED UP with UMO. Sooooo lucky to have catch them at tiny venue in Philly this week. ENJOY!
