Newly discovered favourites:
Robert Ellis – what a guitarist! Almost makes me love country music
Phil Ochs – I completely missed him until now, despite him being a big name in the protest song and folk world that I grew up with. Now newly discovered his songs 30 years after his death.
The Felice Brothers – I know nothing about them, but the songs I’ve heard sound fab.
Damien Jurado – Music to melt to!
The Leylines – They sound almost identical to the Levellers, which is a shame, but do it very well.
