This guy somehow slipped underneath my radar. First heard him last year – after the release of his 2nd album (didn’t even know there was a 1st album in 2012). The more you hear, the better it gets. Described by some as ‘Bob Dylan vocals & Johnny Cash rhythm’, Jake Bugg captures a bygone era so damn well. He brings it so uniquely to the present that it’s hard to put a finger on exactly what era we’re talking about. Feels like experiencing something new & unique while being lost in time somewhere. Just fantastic. The footage below is from a 2013 festival in Scotland, when he was 18 years old.

Fires out.
