If your debut single is going to be a cover it had better be a good one and this Colorado singer certainly manages that with this take on Neil Young’s song. Great vocals, great video too.
Another beautiful song from Kate Ellis, taken from her marvellous debut album Carve Me Out. The launch of the vinyl version is on Wednesday 27th October at The Islington in London. It’s only £8 and you should really go if you can.
Originally formed in 1987, Summerhill have got back together and are out on the road at the moment singing rather good country songs like this. Nice video too.
Elliott Brood’s new album “Ghost Gardens” came out on Friday and they’ve shared with us the video for the track 2 4 6 8 from it. Lead singer Mark Sasso told us: “The lyrics and idea of the song come from an incident I witnessed live on TV when I was still just in grade school… the station we were watching cut away to an accident where a car with a family inside had driven through some barriers and sunk to the bottom of the Detroit river. It cut from the regular programming to the scene at the exact same time that rescue crews were pulling out the soaking lifeless bodies of the children from the river. A horrible thing broadcast to families and children especially with no disclaimers or warnings. That image has never left me.”
The retro slot this week is filled by Mike Nesmith. whose early Seventies albums, solo and with the First National Band, are pioneering classics of country rock. Have a good weekend y’all.
Some great Sixties-style country-pop here from Welsh outfit El Goodo, taken from their 8 years in the making album By Order Of The Moose, out now and which also has some ace spaghetti-western style music too.
The new single from British country outfit Ashton Lane is out on September 15th and is just lovely. More country music should sound like this.
