Sunday Playlist


Nickel Creek
Since we missed our usual Friday mini-mix (where does the time go…) we thought we'd help y'all settle into your Sunday with some tunes that reach out towards endlessly ponderable intangibles – hope, love, faith. We begin with a hidden classic from singer-songwriter extraordinaire John David Souther titled "Jesus In ¾ Time" off his 1972 solo debut, followed by an artist Souther collaborated with extensively in the '70s, Linda Ronstadt doing Jackson Browne's "Rock Me On The Water." Shoot to the present decade and we have Nickel Creek with "Doubting Thomas" for ye of little faith, and The Mother Hips' Tim Bluhm with "Tiara Dievers," a song that seems almost ancient in its depths. Our Sunday mix continues with Nanci Griffith's "There's a Light Beyond These Woods," a lovely early tune from her extensive catalog, and the unabashed yearning of Magnolia Electric Co.'s "I Can Not Have Seen The Light." We conclude our skyward song cycle with The Byrds' version of an old spiritual, "Oil In My Lamp." May your own weekend revels (and reveries) continue towards many happy conclusions…
