The Listening Club - 11th December 2016

Greetings folks,

Hope all is fine with you folks - Feeling a little discombobulated here, as I mentioned earlier on twitter, the job that brought me here to Amsterdam three and a half years ago has ended, which is a pity in a few ways, and a relief in a few others, as is always the case. Still, given the way that this year has gone for many, it's definitely a perfect time to be putting past grumbles and downers to one side, and looking to the future... *raises glass to you all*

Last week chez #LC, @samsmitter was in the chair, sailing us back to his youthful times with his pick of Elvis Costello's sophomore album "This Year's Model", which still sounds mighty fine to these ears. Many thanks to Sam for the pick and for sailing the frisbee across to @xpollen8, who is here with his debut introduction...

"This has been a shit week in a shit year, so I'm setting my sights back a few comforting years to when today was unimaginable.

This is an artist whose style isn't one I normally dig. But her turn of phrase and tunesmithery pack a real punch, so maybe she'll win you over, too.

She's still a DIY touring *machine* even decades after this debut. The lady deserves more attention than she receives.

Teaser: I snapped the cover portrait."

See you 8pm GMT.
