Canadian Jerry Leger will be over in the UK soon with a new retrospective album ‘Too Broke To Die’, from which this excellent song is taken,accompanied by a new, intriguing and slightly disturbing video. Enjoy…
For the retro slot this week we have the late David Rodriguez, a man who should be better known, and a great song perhaps best known for being covered by Lyle Lovett on ‘Step Inside This House’. This is a live take from 1981. Have a good weekend everyone.
Lucy Rose’s new album ‘No Words Left’ is released tomorrow and this powerful and anguished song taken from it is superb. She’s doing some in-stores this week and touring in April too.
This is the title track from Dylan LeBlanc’s new album, out on 7th June. It’s a thoughtful but driving piece of rock’n’roll and LeBlanc’s vocals are gloriously plaintive.
This is the new single from Sweden’s Daniel Norgren, a song with plenty of old school soul and energy, taken from his new album ‘Wooh Dang’ released on April 19th. and we like it. Nice video too. He’s got a couple of UK dates in July too as part of a European tour.
From their new album Tall Grass, out on March 18th on Bull Pup Records and produced by Romeo Stoddart of The Magic Numbers, this is the rather good Goat Roper Rodeo band. They’re on tour from today too and well worth catching if they’re in your neck of the woods.
Leaving you this weekend dear readers with news that NPR have just posted the latest in their brilliant small but perfectly proportioned Tiny Desk Concerts, this time with Kaia Kater whose way with a banjo can bring grown men, and women, to a trembling halt.

From their new album ‘Endless Road, Restless Nomad’, this is Welsh duo Zervas & Pepper’s great new single. It has a real Summer Of Love vibe and in these troubled times a message that we would all do well to heed. You can hear the album performed live in Cardiff on May 31st and tickets available here: https://www.ents24.com/cardiff-events/st-johns-church/zervas-and-pepper/5485576
We have a veritable smorgasbord of videos for you today but this one is worth a watch – evolving indie rock outfit Strand of Oaks performed live on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert with a cast of musicians, including Jason Isbell and Amanda Shires. They performed their new single ‘Ruby’ which comes from the new album ‘Eraserland’, which will be released on March 22nd via Dead Oceans. Isbell appears on the album itself, and Strand of Oaks performed at Willie Nelson’s Luck Reunion last night.
The retro slot is a day early this week as we have something else for tomorrow and we’re filling it with the wonderful Nels Andrews from 2008 with one of his best songs (which is saying something), ‘Dollar And The Dream‘.
