Winter is slowly becoming spring and the hopeful shoots of indie-folk and Americana are bursting forth. The Folk and Tumble Indie-Folk Playlist for February 2020 is perfect listening accompanied by the sound of raindrops on the window.
Hats off to Blackbird & Crow, Matt McGinn, John Blek, Basia Bulat, and The Lost Brothers for kicking off February 2020 with some stellar albums. There were also new tunes from Emily Barker, Sharon Van Etten, Sujan Stevens, Anna Calvi, Courtney Barnett, and Pinegrove.
The 2020 Brit Awards took some criticism for their lack of female nominees. The indie-folk scene certainly seems to be producing some amazing female artists at the moment. Among the new singles to make it onto the Folk and Tumble stereo in February 2020 are those by Laura Ryder, Chloe Foy, and Cayley Thomas. We’ve also been enjoying releases from the upcoming Brian Fallon record and the beautiful Welsh-language tracks from Al Lewis.
Put your headphones on. Come in, we say, we’ll give you shelter from the storm.
