Fierce performance of Nothing Breaks Like a Heart
It's still bloody magnificent
I can’t remember the last time I was as obsessed with a song as this. I just wish it was longer and the final “Nothing breaks like a heart”s were repeated lots more times before it ends.
Props to Miley though- the vocal has imperfections when you listen to it on headphones 36 times in a row but they’re perfect. She really does sound raw on it.
Anyway, given that I love it so much and I know fuck all about modern country music- is there anything like this about anywhere? Obviously Joanne...which I love, and I was also a fan of the poppier Nashville moments.
the Kacey Musgraves album (Golden Hour) might do it for you. It's less country "with a twist" than this though
Everyone does bang on about that. I’ll give it a bash- thanks.
I don’t really think of Kacey Musgraves as sitting under the same umbrella.
It IS a great album though. Space Cowboy breaks my heart every time.
I am trying Kacey and I’m bored after three songs.
The country DRAMA is what i’m after...
Just pop on Follow Your Arrow for some ACCESSIBLE KACEY.
I don't really know a lot of PROPER country, but my love affair with this song has led me back to the inexplicably great Lisa Marie Presley album from a few years ago. It's like Sheryl Crow when she was good.
That has reminded me of my obsession with Lisa's first single Lights Out in Memphis
I do like that LMP song. I quite like her generally, though. Her first album is quite good.
Did you make it to Space Cowboy and High Horse? She is fantastic though definitely not in the same wheelhouse as Nothing Breaks Like A Heart. Maren Morris is very pop country, though not exactly high on the dramatics. I've only dabbled in Miranda Lambert, and she seems a bit and miss but I do like this one:
I didn't- maybe I should try again with Kacey...
Up to 2 in the UK we do stan talent!
I can't believe this is STILL climbing! Not because it's at all undeserved (I can't remember the last brace of number ones as good as Sweet But Psycho then this would be), but it feels like it's been out for AGES
Seemingly not with Mark but solo - surely her own new music isn't coming so soon though
How on earth has this peaked outside the top 40 in the US?
Or is it still likely to grow?
Being released as a limited edition (I've not read just how limited) edition 12" for Record Store Day on April 13th.
Dimitri from Paris remix
Boston Bun remix
Is there anything in the top 40 that isn't Ariana Grande?
All of the teases about his heartbreak on the dancefloor/sad bangers album with Lykke Li et al sound right on the money.
I kinda like how RSD are trying to broaden their audience, I just wish they'd be a bit more bold about it - there's this, the Silk City/Dua Lipa 12" and, oddly, Baby Shark. But the queue will still be full of shambling Bob Dylan fans with a semi for an outtake they've already got on 4 bootlegs and an official CD box set.
One of the things so noticeable about RSD and any record fair I've been to is how straight white and middle aged they are. I guess trying to shake it up isn't a bad thing.
The last time I actually queued for RSD (2012), there was genuine surprise from some people that there was a woman in the queue. I believe this is no longer the case however and the queue at Monorail last year was a lot more diverse, in more respects.
I've never queued for RSD. But I go to at least two or three record fairs each year, and I'd say they are over 95% white, and not significantly less male. And I'd say about 75% over 40.
I want SO much from RSD this year and I’m out of the country. I haven’t worked out how to deal with this. I’m normally not bothered but there’s at least six things I can’t live without...
Doesn't that sound awfully like here?
