So I hold two fingers up to yesterday :: M5MO


My 5 MusicĀ ObsessionsĀ 

You can stream the week as it goes along here at Spotify

1. The Promise :: Sturgill Simpson

“I’m sorry,
but I’m just thinking of the right words to say,
I know they don’t sound the way I planned them to be.”


2. I Need Never Get Old :: Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats

“I needed to try,
needed to fall,
I needed your love.”


3. What Can I Say? :: Skinny Lister

“What can I say to make it all ok?
What can I sing to bring back yesterday
What can I shout about when edges fray
What can I say? What can I say?”

Skinny Lister

4. Two Fingers :: Jake Bugg

“So I kiss goodbye to every little ounce of pain,
light a cigarette
and wish the world away.”


5. My Way Back Home :: Dawes

“And in my constant quest for truth,
I am condemned to facts alone.
And, though my dreams all lead me nowhere,
I won’t forget my way back home.”
