James McMurtry has been called lots of things. Most notably though he’s been described by Stephen King as “the truest, fiercest songwriter of his generation” & Jason Isbell once described him as “his hero” and a “master of language”.
The Horses and The Hounds, the new album, his first in 7 years, is everywhere today! Go to http://www.jamesmcmurtry.com, Spotify, Amazon or wherever you get your music.
That freedom from worry about what’s behind or ahead or what others think has marked McMurtry’s songwriting since his debut record, 1989’s Too Long in the Wasteland, and it continues to shape him as one of music’s most thoughtful, poignant lyricists. Each of his songs are like little stories or movies you feel like you know.
Have a listen to Canola Fields off the new album to start your weekend right;

Since the release of his breakout debut single “Cold War” three years ago, 27-year-old Josh Karpeh has been on a whirlwind ride. He’s released three EPs that have earned praise from the New Yorker, the New York Times, Complex, and more. His songs have soundtracked key scenes in films like Olivia Wilde’s Booksmart and TV shows like Issa Rae’s Insecure. His music has been used by Taylor Swift, and he’s written songs with John Legend and John Mayer. His single “Cheesin” saw him link up with a who’s-who of new generation talent, featuring Remi Wolf, Still Woozy, Sophie Meiers, Claud, Melanie Faye, and HXNS, to raise money for the COVID-19 Relief Fund. Now, Karpeh is releasing Deadpan Love, his debut album as Cautious Clay.
