“Acquainted with Night” is the starlight-dappled title track to Lael Neale’s just-released LP, and today she’s shared its analog-inspired and spooky new video. Out on Sub Pop, you can buy CD, cassette and digital editions of it now from their MegaMart, while vinyl versions will follow in March.
Listening to Elliott Smith suspends time, and his music is a salve soaked in sorrow that heals, and hurts, and haunts. Marika Hackman has chosen his “Between The Bars” along with nine other modern classics for her just-released album Covers, and you can hear her sing it like a hymn above. That album is available now from Bandcamp.
