Given the number of gigs he plays up and down the country it comes as something of a surprise to find that Paul McClure, aka the Rutland Troubadour, has managed to find the time to record anything, but he has, and we should all be grateful for it as the world is a better place for the five songs on this EP.
From his forthcoming album, Work, this is a fine and gritty track with echoes of Tom Petty. UK dates in November.
Kentucky man Tyler Childer’s great new song, taken from his album Purgatory. If you’re in London on July 25th you can catch him at the Slaughtered Lamb.
From their new album Other People, out on 1 September and supported by a UK tour, comes this poignant and powerful song. The footage is 8mm film from the 50’s and 60’s from James Walbourne’s family archive.
Now this is rather good. New Zealander Nadia Reed will be touring the UK in August and September and really shouldn’t be missed.
The new single from CC Smugglers, one of the best live bands on the planet. On the road in November and at festivals in the summer, don’t miss ’em!
The new single from The Blinding Lights is not only excellent but it’s free to download from their website here http://www.theblindinglights.co.uk/. They ask that if you do so you make a donation to Refugee Action, as worthy a cause as you’ll find.
