Taken from her new album Dancing With The Beast, a career high for the ineffably classy Gretchen Peters, this is a powerful song well worth your time.
Taken from his album Centuries, this is a powerful song about insecurity and exposure by singer-songwriter Clint Michigan with an equally powerful video to accompany it.
The latest video from the wonderful Kate Ellis accompanies a great song from her album Carve Me Out. Not only that but if you go on to her site here: https://www.kateellis.com/ibelieve there’s an interactive version with live Twitter updates from fans. It’s really worth a look.
Stephen Karl & Handsome Animals is the songwriting project of guitarist and composer Stephen Griesgraber and while his heart normally lies in anti-folk (which used to be one of our bylines here at AUK) he decided to go a little bit country for his new single, a split single EP with Darlin Darlin. He told AUK: “‘Shelter’ is an honest story of a relationship that is failing, but it does it in an honest, compassionate, and not-too maudlin way by acknowledging what I’m experiencing, and what I love about the woman I’m losing, and how I basically do want the best for her.” The only disappointing thing about the video is that it doesn’t feature any animals handsome or otherwise. The EP comes out on May 4th.
A new video for the final track from their outstanding new album Extralife, this is the wonderful Darlingside, one of the best new bands to emerge in the last few years. They’re back in the UK intermittently this year and you really should see them.
To finish the week we have a great version from 1973 of this classic song from a line-up that includes Chris Hillman, Al Perkins and Byron Berline. Have a great weekend everyone.
This is a fun video to accompany this fine slice of layered folk pop from Covey’s album Haggerty, out now.
A great video here to accompany the heartfelt and powerful title track from Andy Sydow’s new album, out in May
Taken from his eponymous album, out now, this is a great groove with soul to spare from Lukas Nelson.
This is the new single from Grant-Lee Phillips, taken from his latest album Widdershins, out now, and very good it is too. He’s also on tour in the UK in April.
