iTunes Free Single of the Week: Jake Bugg – Lightning Bolt

For those that use iTunes (doesn’t everyone?), the Free Single of the Week is Jake Bugg’s ‘Lightning Bolt’. You can download it free here –> in the U.S.

It amazes me that Jake Bugg is only 19 years old. I have t-shirts older than him!

I first became familiar with Jake Bugg after reading an awesome concert review (complete with excellent pictures) on the blog Every Record Tells A Story. You can read it here–> (This blog is full of great stories out of the UK. I highly recommend it.)

The first thing that strikes you when you see Jake Bugg live is that he reminds you of a sulky teenager (because he is one) in his Adidas trainers and Fred Perry shirt โ€“ but then he opens his mouth and out comes the most amazing voice. This is a voice that cuts through all the nonsense in the newspapers and leads you to ask โ€œHow does someone that young get to be so good?โ€ ~
