Waitin’ Around To Die Column: Between The Pages

BETWEEN THE PAGES As any righteous fan and music nerd will attest, biographies and autobiographies of their favourite artists and albums are an invaluable insight into the life and creative journey of a songwriter. Even in this day and age of smorgasbord information access via the internet, an in-depth and well-researched book by a writer … Continue reading

River Tramps are a Floridian and Texan duo based in Nashville who have recently released their debut single ‘Mare And The Maiden’. Adam Cohen and Nikole Martine have a fine way with country folk phrasing, both old-timey in its western feel but also contemporary in the production sheen. The allowance of space in the song … Continue reading

NEW MUSIC: Late Cambrian – It’s Just Me (Quarantine Edition)

Simple exquisite melodies are the winning hand on this song from Brooklyn’s Late Cambrian. There’s a touch of George Harrison, the tenets of power-pop in a stripped-back setting and a psychedelic country-tinged wander through psych pop. All in all it’s a wonderful track that buried itself in our short term memory when we first heard … Continue reading

NEW MUSIC: The Golden Lancers – Tired Of Saying Goodbye

This song caught our ear the other day, the new single from The Golden Lancers out of South Carolina. It’s a stripped back sound, capturing the honky tonk essence of the song that has one of those classic country lines in “I’m tired of saying sorry, so I’ll say goodbye.” We’re looking forward to hearing … Continue reading

NEW MUSIC: Dan Croll – Actor With A Loaded Gun

We’ve posted about Dan Croll in the past and yet again he’s caught our ear with this wonderful, kaleidoscopic slice of folk-pop. Musical colours are thrown about generously and with great precision on this track that takes in power pop melodies and a psych-folk West Coast vibe. “’Actor’ is about my first step in to … Continue reading

NEW MUSIC PREMIERE: Sunset Stranger – 60 Mile Yonder

A few years ago we posted a track by Melbourne singer-songwriter Eddie Nuardo that really caught our ear with its lilting country sound. Now he’s back under the name Sunset Stranger, with this great track, ’60 Mile Yonder’, from his forthcoming new album. Over a soft freight train shuffle, the guitars and fiddle lead the … Continue reading

NEW MUSIC: Cave Flowers – Upper Hand

Yeah I know we’ve posted a couple of Cave Flowers‘ songs from their new self-titled album already, but damn it’s a cracker of a record and this track, the most recent single, is maybe our favourite. ‘Upper Hand’ has that windswept, slacker country vibe, perfectly enhanced by singer Andy McAllister’s gravelly voice and the way … Continue reading
