The Sound Opinions Weekend Listening Report: "Australian singer-songwriter Courtney Barnett's 2015 album Sometimes I Sit and Think and Sometimes I Just Sit was a critical success and Sound Opinions favorite. Her conversational songwriting manages to be simultaneously clever and poignant, and her guitar technique combining lead and rhythm parts is nothing short of impressive. All of her skills are on display as Courtney Barnett joins Jim and Greg for an interview and intimate solo performance in front of an audience. Plus, a review of the new album from country singer-songwriter Lydia Loveless."

*

Catching up with last week's Sound Opinions: "In the late 1950s, Jamaican musicians blended homegrown rhythms with R&B to create ska. The genre's influence quickly spread across the globe, paving the way for the reggae phenomenon. Jim and Greg explore the history of ska from its island origins to its British revival to its most recent punk incarnation. Plus, a review of the debut album from poet and soul singer Jamila Woods."

Previously in Jamila Woods:
* Covering "Hey Ya," (last item).

* Debuts "blk girl soldier."

* Meet Hollis Wong-Wear & Jamila Woods, The Women Of Color Behind Macklemore's 'White Privilege II.'"
