NEW MUSIC: Pawns or Kings – No Way Home (Where Did I Go Wrong)

I love the laidback, lilting melodic sway of this slice of mellow honky tonk flavoured country-folk from Ozark Mountains group Pawns or Kings.

There’s a heavy, dreamy ambient country intro to this brand new single from Georgia State Line. That evocative beginning gives way to urgent acoustic guitar and upbeat drums, perfectly countered by the devastating heartache of Georgia Delves‘ voice. Streaked in melancholy and yearning, it’s the centrepiece of the song and an impressive first taste of … Continue reading

NEW MUSIC: John Murry – Oscar Wilde (Came Here To Make Fun Of You) / Ones & Zeros

I’ve been a fan of John Murry since I saw him play here in Sydney and was taken by his wonderful 2013 album The Graceless Age.
