John Prine – “Knockin’ On Your Screen Door”
First up, John Prine, from his new album The Tree Of Forgiveness. This is Prine’s first album of all-new material in thirteen years. He’ll be in Austin for a couple of nights next month: June 5 for an ACL taping and June 30 at Bass Concert Hall. Here’s “Knockin’ On Your Screen Door.”
Childish Gambino – “This Is America”
Next, a song that debuted at number one on the Billboard Top 100. It’s an explicitly political song from Childish Gambino, who you may know as the actor Donald Glover. “This Is America” got a lot of attention from its video, as well as Glover’s recent hosting stint on Saturday Night Live.
White Denim – “Magazin”
Finally, a song from Austin’s White Denim, or I should say White Denim 2.0, since they’ve undergone some personnel changes the past few years. But this new lineup really comes into its own on “Magazin,” from the forthcoming Performance, White Denim’s eighth album.
