That album title is based, loosely, on the way Hank Williams used to sign off a gig. He used to say he'd be back "if the good Lord's willin' and the creek don't rise".

Is that some one you met in a pub Robin or is there some contextual clue here?

Off to see The Decemberists again as they tour the UK in November.  One of the best live bands of all.  
This is a powerful video too; have a look at the comments, started by the songwriter Colin Meloy.

Just been enjoying Leon Russell & the Shelter People's TV special, The Homewood Session. You can find the whole thing easily online, but here's the final track, a truncated version of 'Of thee I sing', with Leon doing the big finish and backing singer Claudia Lennear* just about managing to keep her top on. 

*apparently the inspiration for the Rolling Stones' song Brown Sugar, trivia fans.

Title track from John Grant's new album, Love Is Magic.

This is one of the more accessible numbers. I think you'd need to be a fan already to listen to this latest collection tbh, some of it is a bit weird, not least the opening track, but it pays off with repeated plays.

I'm into it now, but casual listeners would have bailed less than half way through I reckon.

A better place to start with John Grant is his first solo album Queen of Denmark, not a duff track on it IMO, some great melodies, emotionally raw lyrics and the bloke possesses a magical voice.
