A live version of the the title track of the latest album (out on July 28th) from Lyndon Morgans superlative outfit Songdog. One of my favourite bands ever.
From their new album, The Machine That Made Us, out now comes this hypnotic and slightly eerie song that sits snugly in the same bed as Mercury Rev and the Flaming Lips. Lovely.
Currently on tour in the UK – check out dates here: http://www.thedanberrys.com/ husband and wife duo The Danberrys do a fine line in melding folk, old-time, country and more than a little soul.
This is the new single from Sam & Tyler, from their eponymous first album together, out in June. Sam’s solo debut Ain’t We Brothers deservedly made many Best Of lists in 2015 and this is just as good and not a little timely.
Something a little different here but it’s truly outstanding. The video is by Yuliya Tsukerman, the music by Austin band Man, Woman, Friend, Computer. The marionette animation is astonishing and very moving and the music fits it perfectly. Give it a watch.
Southbound Attic Band are one of our favourite bands from our hometown (of Liverpool) and they’ve released a track from their forthcoming album “Seekers of Solace” dedicated to Stan Ambrose, producer and presenter of Folkscene on BBC Radio Merseyside for 49 years who died recently. Songwriter Barry Jones describes him as “a lovely man and a very fine musician, or “player of music” as he preferred, on penny whistle and Celtic harp.”
A pre-weekend look back to 1989 with this great song from Indigo Girls, in the UK on tour in July.
