I never intended to start the year of this relaxed, but what am I to do when two very talented songwriters release two great albums in a similar style in the first two weeks? The new album by Joshua Radin titled Onward and Sideways is a real treat and has a number of really great tracks. The track I chose is a duet with Sheryl Crow, and I just can’t stop listening to it over and over.

Week 1: Adam Dale – Midnight
I had to listen to quite a few tracks of new music before I found this gem. Before hearing his new album, I had no idea who Adam Dale was. I now know he’s a very talented musician and tracks like this is exactly why I wanted to only include new music from now on. This track has a lot of heart and is just the right kind of laid-back to kick off the new year smoothly.
Week 45: Manchester Orchestra – Top Notch (Hope Version)
Manchester Orchestra is a fairly new acquaintance to me, but when the band released an acoustic version of their latest album I was definitely hooked! The original version of this track is also very good, but the reimagined version is a step up, and perfect for the season we currently find ourselves in on the northern hemisphere.
Week 43: Reel Big Fish – Take on Me (Skacoustic)
Is it only me, or was it ages ago since a cover made it as track of the week? Well, either way that’s exactly what today’s track is. And it’s not just acoustic, it’s skacoustic! This great up-tempo track was included on the 2011 Reel Big Fish album titled just that and is a real treat. With vocals that are good enough, some nice brass and really good guitar playing I just can’t withstand the charm of this track.
Week 9: Bad Religion – Dearly Beloved (Acoustic)
Some songs just stick with you the very first time you hear them, and this was one of those songs for me. I’m not a huge acoustics fan, but this rendition of a song that’s also very good in its original version is one I keep coming back to time and time again.
