Welsh singer Aimee Duffy, better known simply as Duffy, appeared on Saturday Night Live a couple weeks ago, singing her hit song “Mercy”. It was after midnight, but the song interested me enough that I sat up and watched. I investigated a bit, and like many British pop singers, the song has already hit big on the other side of the pond. I added the song to the collection.

The Saturday Night Live broadcast is pretty good, but pales in comparison to a performance recorded on the musical program “Later…with Jools Holland”:
The live performance is outstanding. I just love the way she stands quietly and smiles at the end of the song. Humble, confident, tough. Red hot pop music by a badass band.
Here’s a list of other recent adds. The first three are brand new:
Stolen Shoes & A Rifle, Blitzen Trapper ✭✭
Off Of Wonderland, Jackson Browne ✭✭✭
Acid Tongue, Jenny Lewis ✭✭✭
Seminole Wind, John Anderson ✭✭
