What’s This Playlist All About? The English singer-songwriter preps us for her upcoming fourth album, No Words Left, out March 22, with a mix of soul-warming stunners.
What You Get: Gentle, gorgeous, and gauzy gems from singer-songwriters both classic and contemporary. Introspective acoustic perfection from Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Nick Drake, and John Martyn cozy up alongside the bittersweet melodies of Feist, Phoebe Bridgers, and Marlon Williams. She also adds in some timeless Pink Floyd and a some recent Radiohead to round out the airy, atmospheric experience.
Greatest Discoveries: The sleepy, surf-y, guitar-fueled soul of Khruangbin’s lovely “Como Te Quiero,” which seamlessly bleeds into the funky free flow of “Broken Theme” from jazz/electro wizard Kamaal Williams.
How Well Does This Reflect Lucy Rose’s Own Aesthetic? Quite beautifully. You could easily slip in one of Rose’s own ethereal acoustic reflections, like recent single “Conversation,” right between Laura Marling and Nick Drake for a little extra soothing of the soul.
