There's a boy across the river...
Off to see Laura Marling with my Ukrainian chum Vladimir. Marling is over a year younger than me and has a Mercury Music Prize nominated album. Her songs have some of the most insightful and downright sexual lyrics and ideas of almost any songwriter I've heard, let alone one younger than me, a 19 year old.
Check her below, covering a Jeffrey Lewis classic with Johnny Flynn. I can't urge you enough to get into this lady. She's awesome.
