Alexi Murdoch

Isn't sharing stuff the best? I love sharing music and books 'specially.

Recently, T (who you will probably become more familiar with on this here blog), introduced me to Alexi Murdoch. He's a UK artist who plays beautiful folk music that makes you feel nice and warm inside.

I feel I'm a little late to the party on this one, but maybe you are too. Let's be late to the party together! He has a new album out called Towards the Sun and it's pretty swell.

Here is one of his older songs that is rather lovely. Enjoy.

LOVE the song you linked to. I think I've heard a bit of Murdoch before (I think my brother listens to him?) but it was great to be reminded.

I particularly appreciated the poignancy of

'Well many a night I found myself with no friends standing near
All of my days
I cried aloud...'

and the movement to:

'I know I'll feel this loneliness no more
All of my days
For I look around me
And it seems He found me'.
