Track of the Day 499 : Hamish Hawk – John Cooper Clarke

I don’t listen to Marc Riley’s 6music show as much as I used to. Not for any great reason, it just doesn’t seem to be a time of the day when I have the radio on. When I do listen though, I still discover gems.

This weeks was Hamish Hawk, a Scottish folk singer whose gorgeous voice virtually leapt out of the radio at me. Hawk has worked with King Creosote, with whom he shares a sharp turn of phrase and wry humour.

New album ‘From Zero to One’ arrives imminently. Until then I’ve been enjoying 2014’s ‘Aznavour’, with ‘John Cooper Clarke’ A particular punk-poet referencing, whistling delight.

Buy Hamish Hawk’s music from Bandcamp

The first 483 tracks of the day can only be found on my Tumblr. Everything since can be found here. There’s also a Spotify playlist of every single track of the day (or those available on Spotify at least) below:
