There are artists who can command attention. They lean into their songs with an irresistible edge and total emotional connection and stay there. Sallie Ford is one of those artists. Her 2017's album "Soul Sick" finds Ford further mining, updating and perfecting her vintage influences to stand alongside her uncompromising and confessional lyricism. The album is produced by Mike Coykendall (M. Ward and She & Him). "Ford is like a cross between Liz Phair and Buddy Holly".– The New Yorker

I thought it's a nice time to support the record stores, which are dwindling and get some new music out at the same time".

Pitchfork compared their sound to "one of the Slits backed by the Gang of Four, while PopMatters said, "Musically, the group’s use of complex percussion, horns, danceable bass lines, and overtly English female vocals built a bridge between the worlds of Afrobeat, reggae, avant-garde jazz, funk and pop". “I Can't Stand It Here On Quiet Nights” is centred around the trio of singles the band released on Dick O’Dell’s Y Records between 1981-1982.

Comparisons between musicians are blunt instruments. But if a more orchestral take on Elliott Smith appeals, Canadian troubadour Andy Shauf is a find. A singer-songwriter with a Beatles hang-up and a voice like sodden velvet, Shauf is on his second properly available album. The Party isn’t a concept album so much as a set of closely observed tracks linked by intersecting characters where Shauf replaces Smith’s more misanthropic tendencies with compassion and wry understatement.
