#22 A song that needs more recognition
This isn’t so much the song as the artist. Roddy Hart & the Lonesome Fire people, why are you not listening to Roddy Hart & the Lonesome Fire?
Last I checked, Roddy Hart & the Lonesome Fire had just above 400 listeners on Last.fm and 170 listeners/month on Spotify. I don’t get it.
Is it just because you all don’t know about them yet?
To be fair. I only heard about them because I bought tickets to see Glasvegas open for the Proclaimers (who, by the way, were so bad we could only stay for a single song, and even that was torture, Glasvegas were great tho, obvs.), and Roddy played before Glasvegas. Aside from playing their original material, they also played a National cover. It was. So good. One of my best live experiences. If you like the National, you should also like Roddy. So that’s the kind of music they play.
Also worth mentioning; they are from Glasgow and Roddy has a show on BBC Scotland Monday nights. I used to listen to it up until I entered my current phase where I prefer people shouting in the music I listen to. Which isn’t exactly the kind of music he plays on his show. More like singer-songwriter type music. But he’s got a beautiful Scottish, so you could well listen for that only.
Also, guy’s dead handsome:
What song/artist do you think needs more recognition?
