New Music Friday: Lissie and Lake Street Dive

It’s a crazy busy new album release day. Everyone else in the world is diving into the eagerly awaited new Béyonce album, Renaissance. As we’ve already established that’s not really my jam, but I am super excited for the Maggie Rogers’ album, Surrender and the new Amanda Shires’ album, Take It Like a Man. Plus the third part of Tedeschi Trucks Band’s 4 EP cycle I am the Moon is also out today. I have already written about songs from all three of those albums though, so I’m not going to talk about any of those today. There’s also a new King Princess album, Hold On Baby that I’m liking what I’ve heard so far, but I’m not going to talk about that either. Instead I’m going to share a couple of singles I’ve been digging this week.

“Night Moves” by Lissie

“Night Moves” is the first single off of Lissie’s forthcoming album, Carving Canyons, due out in September. Lissie is an artist who whenever I hear one of her singles I really love it and think I should check out more of her music and then I never, ever do for some reason. I really should remedy that because she is obviously someone I would be super into if I spent any amount of time with her work. I’m really digging the new song. It could not sound more like a Stevie Nicks song if it were in fact a Stevie Nicks song. That’s pretty much all I have to say about it, but I think that’s enough.

“Nick of Time” by Lake Street Dive

Ten years ago Lake Street Dive released the EP, Fun Machine, which was an EP of covers that helped springboard the start of their career. To celebrate the anniversary they are doing a sequel to Fun Machine this year. The first cover song they’ve released from it is Bonnie Raitt’s “Nick of Time”. It’s probably my favorite Bonnie Raitt song and they are the perfect band to do a cover of it, especially with Rachael Price’s vocals.
