From his new album ‘The Unconquerable Past‘, out now and which we liked a lot here at AUK Towers – check out our review here – this is Stephen Fearing with a heartfelt plea for tolerance. He’s on tour in January/February – dates below the video – and shouldn’t be missed.
This is a nice live take of a song from Aussie outfit Fallon Cush’s new album ‘Stranger Things Have Happened‘, out now. They describe themselves as folk-rockers but to us they sound more Fanclub than Fairport, more George Harrison than George Maynard. Which we’re fine with.
This is the new single from Norwegian trio Darling West, from their album ‘We’ll Never Know Unless We Try’. A sweetly delicate acoustic number with great vocals and a West Coast feel, it’s out today with the album following on February 7th.
A great video here from Ryan Hamilton, looking back at his life, and a great song too about triumphing over adversity. It’s from his album ‘This Is The Sound’, out now.
This is rising London band Sasha & The Shades’ new single, out now, a tale of gender battles that’s both entertaining and has some serious points to make.
This excellent song is from the new album ‘Four’ by Italian outfit Sunday Morning, which is out now. They’ve got a big sound, anthemic even though it’s still acoustic-driven. We like it and them. Great video too.
Now here’s a cool video to accompany the new single from ex-busker Frazer Lepford which is out now. It’s a sad and angry story of betrayal but ultimately moving on.
This is the new single from Atlanta man Jacob Deaton aka Wisetale, which will be out next month. A big emotional chorus, muscular and furious fretwork and great words. We like it a lot. Read Jacob’s take on it under video.
This has been out for a while but there’s always room for more Chip Taylor here at AUK Towers. This is a great version of the title track of his latest excellent album, with a fine video too – shows what you can do on a low budget with some imagination.
Now here’s something rather good from two musicians new to us at Americana UK. This Swedish duo have a way with a quietly powerful song, in this case based on stories from a seven-year old called Jimmy they met in 2016. Listen and be impressed. Lovely video too. More soon hopefully.
