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.
The Only Ones front man has a new album out on June 30th. This is the excellent title track which has a hint or two of George Harrison and Lou Reed about it.
A great song from the superb solo debut album Arizona from the former ahab and current Orphan Colours man Dave Burn.
LA band The Americans release their new album I’ll Be Yours on July 7th and this urgent slice of rock/rockabilly bodes well for it.
