Some fine playing here from Canada’s Slocan Ramblers, who’ll be in the UK & Ireland in October for the first time.
This week’s look back comes from the wonderful Indigo Girls, who’ve just started their first UK tour in a decade. You really should go and get there early too for support act Lucy Wainwright-Roche.
Now this is rather nice. Plenty of jangle, catchy as hell, just all round great from Jon Prine’s guitarist Jason Wilber, taken from his new album Reaction Time, out on August 11th.
The new single from the fabulous Gogol Bordello, taken from their album Seekers and Finders, out on August 25th. UK tour in December, not to be missed.
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.
