1/2/3/4 — #43— Gardens, Mangroves and Rivers

An extra tasty 1/2/3/4 with some essential new releases. Haley Heynderickx’s debut is already one of my favourites for 2018, with some deft guitar work and imaginative lyrics. How can you not gravitate to an artist who dreamed she was transformed into a feamle Jimi Hendrix at age eleven? Plus folkie Serafina Steer’s cracking post punk trio Bas Jan, metaphysical rolling folk from Red River Dialect and the beguiling sounds of Jerry David Deciccia.
