Songs of the Week: October 1, 2018 edition

“How Can I Love You?” by Yellow Days

Good Years Music

Yellow Days (aka George Van Den Broek) has one of the most unique and expressive voices in music. He’s remarkably young, just 19 or 20 but the British singer-songwriter sings/writes with the passion and longing of an old soul man. New single “How Can I Love You?” is his first release since 2017 debut LP Is Everything OK In Your World?

“It’s Not Real” by Pleasure Craft

689577 Records

In the same way that I’m Wide Awake, It’s Morning (reportedly) documented Conor Oberst’s first trek to New York, “It’s Not Real” memorializes Canadian artist Pleasure Craft‘s own head-spinning experience in a big city — in his case, Toronto. The song is drawn from the forthcoming EP1.

“Talk” by Con Davison


Con Davison perhaps is best known as the drummer for Bad Bad Hats and Dreamspook… but not for much longer. His debut solo EP Far Off Distant Plans comes out October 19 and, so far, everything I’ve heard from it is sparkling. That includes jangly new single “Talk.”

“Whitehorse” by Kim Barlow


Singer-songwriter Kim Barlow lived in the Yukon for 20 years. After (finally) leaving for Nova Scotia she penned the reflective “Whitehorse,” a personal song about youth, change and letting go.
