This week’s retro slot has a classic from the legendary Byrds. Shot in 1965 and of course including David Crosby and the great Gene Clark in the line-up. Have a good weekend y’all.
The new video from rising UK stars Hope In High Water is really good, as is the song. They’re on tour in February and you should catch them.
Ahead of UK dates in February/March this is the latest from JD McPherson, taken from his new Undivided Heart & Soul album, and a great choppy slice of rock’n’roll it is too.
From Blitzen Trapper’s excellent new album Wild & Reckless comes this dark and desperate song about sexual assault and murder that has a lot to say about what justice truly is.
As it’s December we can start getting into this sort of thing, particularly when it’s as good as this new single from Americana-UK fave Jarrod Dickenson.
And in this week’s retro slot we have the great Long Ryders, with Sid Griffin on lead vocals, and the classic Gunslinger Man. Filmed in 1986 in Hollywood California. Have a great weekend everyone.
Composer Paul Mosley has reached his 10-year anniversary (Tin?) as a musician and to celebrate, while most people would buy a cake, he’s instead reuniting with his Red Meat Orchestra to release a new EP of ghostly, junk orchestra, folk-pop stories called Wintertide which is out tomorrow. The single from it is rather lovely and described as “an epic journey through the eyes of three captains and the ominous dangers that come with the seas.” Do they not listen to the shipping forecast?
Something a bit different here, a twenty-three minute solo acoustic set from the great Steve Earle that includes Copperhead Road, Guitar Town and the Allman’s Midnight Rider. Essential viewing.
From their new six track EP Seven Sisters, out now, comes this new piece from India Electric Company, which takes words from the 19th century poem Alice Gray and sets them to the hornpipe Rusty Gulley. Really very good indeed.
From their new album Songs for Somewhere Else, released on February 9th, is the excellent pieces of cosmic Americana from Walthamstow’s Hanging Stars.
