From his imminent new album ‘Ever Green, Ever Rain’ this is a beautifully soulful song from Michael McArthur. In his own words: “The older I become the more time matters. Which is ironic, as it seems now the days are ever fleeting. I don’t mean time for the sake of having it, but for how I give it away. I want to spend mine loving, and I get to, at home and through my songs. Elaine is a gentle reminder to myself and to you, that love is the only thing worth our time.”
From their new album, Tides Of A Teardrop, out on February 1st, comes this powerful portrayal of grief and coping from Americana duo Mandolin Orange. There’s a European tour in May 2019 (with one UK date).
Another great song from Passenger’s superb new album Runaway, accompanied by a video filmed on a three week road trip across the United States.
For this week’s retro slot we go back a couple of decades for a great live performance from one of the key Americana bands and genre pioneers, Jay Farrar’s Son Volt. Have a good weekend everyone.
The new single from Liverpool band Red Rum Club is a bit epic, a proper rocker with hooks galore, a hint of spaghetti westerns and an anthemic chorus. Their album Matador is out on 11 January.
A hypnotic and African-influenced piece here on the new single from Me And My Friends, with a wonderful video. Their new album, Look Up, will be out on December 6th.
From his second album Pink Mirror, this is the new single from UK man Jeremy Tuplin. It’s ridiculously catchy, has great lyrics and a fun video to accompany it. Which will do nicely.
A great video for AUK favourite Austin Lucas’s equally great title track from his new album, out now. Soulful, rocking, a message of hope, what’s not to like. Catch him live across the UK and the rest of Europe starting tomorrow – dates below.
After a couple of weeks break for video premieres the retro slot is back. We’re only going back eight years this week and the footage is by no means perfect but this is a great performance of a great song by one of the UK’s best singer-songwriters and one of its best guitarists. Have a good weekend everyone.
This the new single from The Orange Circus which is released today. It’s only a single frame video but the song is a proper classic country ballad, full of heartbreak and desire that puts pretty much all of what comes out of Nashville these days to shame.
