This is a live cut from the wonderful Christina Alden, Alex Patterson & Noel Dashwood. Their new album By The Night is available now and very good it is too.
Some fabulous guitar work here from Ben Smith & Jimmy Brewer on this track taken from their new live album available now. There’s a studio offering in the pipeline too.
Taken from their latest album The Waves, The Wake, out on August 17th, this is a very lovely song from Great Lake Swimmers. There will be a few UK dates in December too.
From 1976, the late great Warren Zevon with Mohammed’s Radio, accompanied by Jackson Browne and an ace band. Have a good weekend everyone.
The new single from North Carolina’s Lonesome River Band is a great slice of bluegrass as befits the multi-award winning veterans (35 years and counting!).
Ahead of a big European tour in August and September (no UK dates sadly) this is the new song from Portland Oregon trio Three For Silver. It’s a bit raucous, a bit wild, a bit folk, a bit Americana and a lot good.
A brilliant and witty video accompanies the new song from Steven Page (once of Barenaked Ladies) that excoriates white nationalists (a good thing, obviously) in a furious power-pop style (also a good thing). It’s from his latest album Discipline: Heal Thyself Pt. II, out on September 14th. he’s also on tour in the UK in August.
This is the superlative kim Richey with a live version of Chase Wild Horses from her excellent new album Edgeland.
A new band from Brighton, The Hungry Mothers describe their music as a feelgood, soulful take on folk and Americana. And do you know what, they’re right. Modestly, they don’t describe it as excellent, so we will, because it is, and was recorded at Ford Lane studios by producer, and friend of the band, Joe Dennis. Recording just south of the Sussex idyll, Arundel, in the late spring, the rural surroundings had an appurtenant impact on the feel-good summer tune. The heat wave is back, just in time. Catch them live at the Komedia on Thursday 9th.
From their new album Topspin, this is the Carrivick Sisters “other” band (the one that’s not Midnight Skyracer) with the excellent Ghosts.
