NEW MUSIC: Scurvylicious – Wiser

The delightfully named Scurvylicious concoct a wonderfully vibrant sound on this new song ‘Wiser‘. The Melbourne band open the track with a slow, swaying jangly guitar sound – like an afterthought at the start of the song. Near the minute mark it kicks into first gear with prominent bass driving things along and the mantra … Continue reading

NEW MUSIC: Shattercones – Love On Repeat

We’ve always got a soft-spot for that point where country and folk meet slowcore. There are elements of that in ‘Love On Repeat’, the latest single from UK group Shattercones. The song comes from their EP Oppenheimer, which is out now. You can here the sound of acts like Tindersticks, albeit with a heavier gothic … Continue reading

NEW MUSIC: Wagons – Need A Ride?

Following on from Wagons‘ fine Songs From The Aftermath album, the band have been hard at work recording a new EP, of which the dark and spooky ‘Need A Ride?’ is the title track. There’s a cosmic malevolence at hand on the single, with psychobilly influences, some Suicide and a demonic ‘Nebraska’ Springsteen – all … Continue reading

NEW MUSIC: State Park Ranger – Mountain Kin / Anodyne

We love the nexus between alt-country, dark folk, post-rock and slowcore music. That rarefied air that people like Bonnie “Prince” Billy, Jason Molina, Bon Iver and others have all breathed and created in. When we heard ‘Mountain Kin / Anodyne‘, by group State Park Ranger, we knew they were kindred spirits of those musicians and … Continue reading

NEW MUSIC: Dan Sartain – The Return Of Ringo

Birmingham Alabama’s Dan Sartain has a new tale of western gothic noir for your listening pleasure. There’s drama aplenty in his sound that contains a tinge of Nick Cave in its moody salute to the cowboys of the silver screen and television. ‘The Return Of Ringo’ comes from Sartain’s album Western Hills (Out now with vinyl … Continue reading

NEW MUSIC: Uncle Sinner – Creation Myth

Uncle Sinner released his new album Trouble Of The World in March and one of the highlights from it is this piece of raw folk blues in ‘Creation Myth’. A gravelly voice, primitive stomping percussion and rolling metallic banjo string plucking are the foundations for the song that takes off into a heady, psychedelic banjo … Continue reading

NEW MUSIC: Nathan Kalish – Delta Woman

Nothing beats a well-written song, with strong playing and topped off by a voice brimming with soul and character. All the boxes are ticked on this new single (and the accompanying album) from Nathan Kalish. ‘Delta Woman’ comes from Kalish’s tenth album Songs For Nobody. It’s pure country but it also contains a strong streak of … 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: 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: 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

NEW MUSIC: Daniel Young – Pretty Soon Ain’t Enough (To Get You Off My Mind)

Three minutes into this new song from Daniel Young you think things are winding down, after a wonderful traditional country song built around that great title and chorus. But that’s just where things really begin to take shape, or gloriously lose shape, depending how you view it. The music builds and expands into a beautiful … Continue reading

NEW MUSIC: Someday River – Are We Free?

Someday River hail from Florida and on this recent single, ‘Are We Free?’ they dial into a really nice folk rock sound, run through a gauzy late summer shimmery filter. It sounds and feels nostalgic as the wind their way through a psych-lite landscape of searching guitars and Greyson Charnock’s yearning vocal sound. Continue reading

NEW MUSIC: Lawrie Duckworth – The Devil In Me

Today we give you the recent single from British songwriter Lawrie Duckworth. You wouldn’t necessarily pick him as hailing from that side of the Atlantic, given the swampy blues noir vibe that emanates from this track. Dig a bit deeper though and you can hear a surf tinge and a distant nod to The Shadows. … Continue reading

NEW MUSIC: Max And The Martians – Please Hold On

I love the laziness of this song. The way it gently unfurls and spreads itself across the speakers. It has that jangly 90s slacker aesthetic, wrapped up in a late afternoon, sunburnt afternoon kind of country vibe. Max and the Martians hail from New Orleans and are based around songwriter Max Bien-Kahn. ‘Please Hold On’ … Continue reading
