This is the new single from Norway’s Darling West, a lovely gentle song with gorgeous vocals and lush strings.
Possibly the only song we’ve featured from an ex deputy district attorney, the title track from India Ramey’s debut is a great slice of gothic Americana with a wonderful video to accompany it.
This is a brilliant song with a mighty get-up-off-your-backside sound on the title track of Blitzen Trapper’s new album, due out on November 3rd.
It may be a bit later than a lot of posts elsewhere but this week’s retro slot couldn’t be filled by anybody else. A great acoustic version of the song from a great man and a great band. RIP.
A great video to accompany this very nice slice of big music with Glen Campbell-esque vocals from Michael Gallagher aka The Mining Co.
Last seen round these parts with the wonderful Lights On The River, this is London man Ned Roberts’ latest single our on October 20th, a lovely piece of country-hued melancholy taken from his album Outside My Mind.
A powerful and emotive song and video from The Young ‘Uns, telling the story of Matthew Ogston, who founded the Naz and Matt Foundation to tackle religious and cultural homophobia following the tragic death of his fiancé. Taken from their new album Strangers, which they’re touring round the UK at the moment.
Now this is very good indeed, a life-affirming song with gospel overtones and a powerful message from May Erlewine, who’s one third of The Sweet Water Warblers and has released more than a dozen solo albums. It’s taken from her latest, Mother Lion, out in the UK on November 1st.
This weeks retro slot features the late great Gene Clark accompanied by Carla Olsen on a wonderful song from his last album So Rebellious A Lover. Have a good weekend everyone.
A great video to accompany the latest excellent song from Sophia Marshall, late of the Havenots and now of a blossoming solo career, with this taken from her latest release Bye Bye.
