Tuesday, 17 January: Eric Matthews – Space Oddity

As we all know David Bowie passed away last year. Back in 2016, I couldn’t find the original Space Oddity to include in the Spotify 366 2016 Challenge playlist. One year later Lo-Fidelity Records issued a cover by Eric Matthews.

If you like the Americana¬†sound of Starflyer 59, or the alternative rock that 77’s, Daniel Amos or Terry Scott Taylor used to make in the earlier days of what now is Lo-Fidelity, check out this track.
