Some exciting music-related events have occurred this week and I'm not just talking about how Hilary Duff tweeted that she's returning to pop. But there's that, too.
A new song from Jenny Owen Youngs
Jenny's just dropped a stellar new track, "Great Big Plans," and you can listen to it right here on Bandcamp. You can purchase the song for only $1, which is an incredible value, considering the amount of swing it will put in your step.
A new album from Gillian Welch
It's been roughly eight years since this folky bluesy duo of Gillian Welch and David Rawlings have released an album. According to the songwriters, it's because everything they wrote after 2003's Soul Journey was a little shit. We all have those moments, don't we? But with The Harrow and The Harvest they've got their groove back, and those of you who've ever been swept up by their stories will no doubt fall for this release.
