Israel Nash proved tonight that not only can he rock out with the best of them, but his big musical sound also draws from the desert folklore of that part of Dripping Springs in Texas where he currently resides that’s the inspiration for so much of his muse nowadays. Opening with ‘Rolling On,’ the first … Continue reading “Israel Nash + Treetop Flyers + Brent Cowles, Scala, London, 22nd November 2018”
Bit of a cheat in the retro slot week as Treetop Flyers are very much now. But this is their wonderful cover of “The Sounds Of Our Time”, originally by the late and very very great Jim Ford. When you’ve listened to this, check out the original too. Have a great weekend everyone.
This gig heralded the Treetop Flyers’ self-titled new – and third – album due out the very next day on Loose Records and recorded just a mile or two north of the venue in Stoke Newington. It’s a notably young audience which is good news for the growth of this musical niche, with your reviewer … Continue reading “Treetop Flyers, The Lexington, London, 23rd August 2018”
The latest single from Treetop Flyers, taken from their eponymous album, out on Loose on August 24th. It’s a beautiful, delicate and soulful piece and we like it a lot.
There are a lot worse ways to start the week than with the new single from Treetop Flyers from their eponymous new album, out on August 24th. A wonderful retro-tinged West Coast Americana song, it’ll improve your Monday (and the rest of the week too).

From their eponymous new album, out on August 24th, comes this slow, melancholic and soulful song from Treetop Flyers.
London soulful country-rock outfit Treetop Flyers are back with their eponymous third album which is due out on 24 August via Loose. Weaving 60s tinged West Coast Americana with a British rock’n’roll swagger, whereas previous albums had been recorded either at their own Soup studios in London or further afield in studios in Malibu and New York, this time … Continue reading “Treetop Flyers announce new album, single”
The Islington Academy is one of London’s smaller venues, a room that revels in its awkward layout that surely aspires to non-Euclidean geometry, its poor lighting, and its really sticky floor. If it were a pub then it’d be of the spit and sawdust variety. Which is all very down and dirty and rock and … Continue reading “Vetiver, Islington Academy, London, 17th December 2019”
Jonathan Wilson is a hugely talented producer, as well as a solo artist in his own right, and when he produces an album the great and the good sit up and take notice (Dawes, Father John Misty, Roy Harper, Treetop Flyers et al). And this album by Leslie Stevens is no different. Possessed with a traditional, … Continue reading “Leslie Stevens “Sinner” (Thirty Tigers, 2019)”
