NEW MUSIC: Eric Cannata – Another Song

Los Angeles songwriter Eric Cannata recently released his new EP Lonely Beast, featuring this track, ‘Another Song’. It’s one of those warm, low-key ruminations that takes in folk music with sweet dynamics and a lush sonic world. Cannata cites Wilco and Sparklehorse as influences and you can definitely hear them on this track, filtered into … Continue reading

NEW MUSIC: Dan Croll – Yesterday

There’s a kaleidoscopic, psychedelic folk quality to this new Dan Croll track that sounds like it was plucked from the 60s and dropped into a modern 21st century studio. Indie folk I guess is where it’s landed but it has all the hallmarks of contemporary Americana in its Laurel Canyon melodic harmonies, the interplay of … Continue reading

NEW MUSIC: Anna Smyrk – Alight

Anna Smyrk shot the video clip for new single ‘Alight’ in an abandoned mansion over in Tagaytay, Philippines and the setting is a wonderful match for her music which resides in lush surrounds where historical folk music tropes filter through traditional instrumentation yet the song still sounds contemporary with her weightless vocal and some sublime … Continue reading

NEW MUSIC: Delafaye – Tattoo Dreams

For fans of subtly blended Americana and indie sounds. We shared Delafaye‘s track ‘Time & Money’ a while back and this new hits the spot just as beautifully. ‘Tattoo Dreams’ rides on a laidback acoustic guitar strum with Andrew Shockley’s burnished and grainy vocal delivering the goods over the top. There’s a full length, self-titled … Continue reading

NEW MUSIC: Steve Marino – Six Two Four

Here are some sweet folk sounds to kick of the new week, courtesy of songwriter Steve Marino who hails from Bloomington, IN. ‘Six Two Four’, from his new album Fluff, his first under his own name, is warm and freewheelin’ baroque folk that weaves a path through the kind of heavy lidded strumming of Evan Dando … Continue reading

NEW MUSIC: East Denistone – House On The Quiet Street

This track caught our ears with its wonderful horns, and grand swoon of a sound. It’s the work of Sydney songwriter East Denistone and comes from his 2018 EP While You Still Draw Breath. It’s more on the indie rock tip, in the vein of The National and Grizzly Bear but it incorporate elements of … Continue reading

ALBUM REVIEW: Damien Jurado – The Horizon Just Laughed

The Horizon Just Laughed comes on the back of the loosely thematic trilogy of albums he recorded with producer and musician Andrew Swift. They were psychedelic in nature though still rooted in the folk form. In contrast, this feels like a retreat from the density and experimentation, to a place of reflection and solitude. Jurado … Continue reading

PTW PREMIERE: Diamond Duck EP

Diamond Duck release their self-titled debut EP this week and it’s a wonderful showcase for the talents of Jimmy Daley and Brian Campeau. Lush and ornate are two words that come to mind listening to the EP. The duo’s harmonies are beautifully intertwined, rising and falling, complementing and contrasting each other. They recall some of … Continue reading

ALBUM REVIEW: Fanny Lumsden – Real Class Act

Fanny Lumsden continues to go from strength to strength, building her fiercely independent brand of autobiographical country and folk music. Playing country hall shows, living and traveling in a caravan and covering all corners of Australia, she’s living as boldly as she’s working hard and this album, her second full-length, finds her documenting those adventures … Continue reading

ALBUM REVIEW: Iron & Wine – Beast Epic

Sam Beam returns with his sixth album and it finds him returning to his earlier sound where the music is stripped back, relatively unadorned and existing in it’s own unhurried world. By recording live, with minimal overdubs, Beam has ensured the focus is on a clear and detailed presentation of the songs, his warm and … Continue reading
