Last Days Of 1984 “River’s Edge” (White)

Gorgeous debut single from Last Days Of Darren Molony and Brian Rice comes with sandy grooves and sunburnt, hazy melodies.

The Jayhawks “Hollywood Town Hall” (American)

1992 album where the country-rock revivalists found their mojo with classic songs and spirited playing which still hits the spot.
