Here’s something good from Cincinnati outfit The Tillers, taken from their ‘Hand On The Plow’ album. This is a band that knows its Americana and can play it superbly. They’re on tour in the UK in November and well worth seeing, dates below the video.
AUK favourites Michael Weston King and Lou Dalgleish aka My Darling Clementine have a new EP out today, ‘Country Darkness Vol 1‘, a set of Elvis Costello covers. This is the lead song and excellent it is too. Better than the original? We couldn’t possibly comment…
This is a lovely piece of melancholic folky Americana from Sweden that tells of a long lost love. It’s the new single from A Choir Of Ghosts (aka James Auger) and we like it. There will be an album of the same name out soon too.
This is the title track of the new album from Nashville man David Newbould, out on October 18th. It’s a fine piece of blues rock’n’roll with proper lyrics as well as driving guitars and it’s ideal for kickstarting your day. We like it a lot.
Featuring M Ward, this is a new song from Ireland’s Lost Brothers taken from their next album ‘After The Fire After The Rain‘, out in February next year. It’s a lovely subtle hymn to home, with a nice video too.
This is a great song from Midlands man Dan Hartland, taken from his excellent album ‘Great Novels‘, out now and available in the all the usual places. Good video too.
Now this is a powerful song. Written in support of the Me Too movement, and in particular Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, it’s timely and important. It’s out as a single and will also be on her May’s next album due next year. Great video too.
In the retro slot this week we go back a decade for an unusual live performance by guitar ace Chris Smither, as he’s got a drummer and second guitarist with him who could well be David Goodrich and The Suitcase Junket, not entirely sure. Whatever, it’s a wonderful song and performance. Have a great weekend everyone.
This is the new single from Philadelphia duo Driftwood Soldier. It’s gritty, folky and from their new album ‘Stay Ahead Of The Wolf‘, which is out on October 18th. Title says it all really…
This rather nice piece of alt-folk is the new single from Portuguese musician Marinho, taken from her debut album ‘~’ (pronounced tilde), which is due out on the 18th of October.
