Gary Clark Jr. – This Land
The political and racial climate in the United States is inspiring some incredibly moving art at the moment, but This Land may just be the best that I’ve come across.
Merging an undertone of hip hop production, blues and old-school rock and roll, you can feel the frustration and anger pour out of every single note of This Land.
The video is superb. The lyrics are hard-hitting and personal. And the energy is off the chart. I have to be honest, in any other week – and probably month – this would be the best thing I’d post by a mile, but January 2019 has proven to be the most generous of months when it comes to quality music.
