Fiona Apple’s new album is brilliant. Have you been listening? I had it on repeat on the flight home from New York and think the third track “Valentine” is my favorite. “I’m amorous but out of reach / A still life drawing of a peach.”
I have a confession to make: I love happy country tunes. I loathed them growing up, but somewhere along the line I fell for country and I fell hard. The thing is, I know so little about it! I have a playlist of 30 or so songs made by a friend (it has everything from Johnny Cash to Taylor Swift), but that’s it. So I need your help—what country songs and/or artists do you recommend? Where should I start? I’d be forever grateful!
Love this new rendition of Fools Rush In by Zooey Deschanel and M.Ward of She & Him. Levi’s Pioneer Sessions feature contemporary artists remaking their favorite classics—such a great idea. I think Ricky Nelson would be proud!
