kathI’d never heard of the singer Kath Bloom before, but then I heard about this compilation of people covering her music. She’s been around since the 1970’s but now has some big names in folk covering her music. It’s beautiful, haunting music covered by some of the best artists in that type of genre today. The compilation features one disc of the covers, and then the other disc has all of the other originals. Haven’t heard a lot of these artists either, so more people to discover! Here’s a taster from the now-not-Smog Bill Callahan.
