NEW MUSIC: Huck Hayden – Fire Ball

I’m loving the world weary vocal on this slice of melodic country rock by Nashville-based Huck Hayden. There’s Petty in there, a dash of Berman-esque indie rock, the country-leaning side of J. Mascis and the heavier, electrified folk-rock of Neil Young. The push and pull tension between the vocal and the blistered guitar sound on … Continue reading

The single is Dorahy’s first since she released the song ‘Margharita’ in 2019 and finds her striking a magnificent alt-country sound that recalls the preeminent sound and swagger of Lucinda Williams in … Continue reading

West Australian songwriter Tanya Ransom has a brand new EP out called Breakdown To Breakthrough and today we’re featuring the title-track which possesses one of those magical choruses that lifts the song skyward, soaring on a beautiful melodic run. The art of doing that while singing about troubled times is what makes it that much … Continue reading

NEW MUSIC: Mitch Dillon’s Compulsive Ramblers – Do You Want Me To Forget?

I first came across Mitch Dillon‘s work with another of his bands – Attractor Beams. There he had a superb garage rock meets The Replacements sound. Here he doesn’t travel a great distance from that sound but it is a more distinct alt-country feel. ‘Do You Want Me to Forget?’ is less parched and brittle, … Continue reading

NEW MUSIC: K. Walsh – Party Of One

Ripper of a track from Sydney, yet another top shelf release from the Evening Records crew. K. Walsh (Kevin to his mum) treads a finely balanced line between country and the interesting side of rock music. There are strummed electric guitars and walking bass lines mingling with handclaps, psych guitar sounds and most rewardingly, some … Continue reading

NEW MUSIC: David Garnham and the Reasons to Live – Holding Pattern

I’m a big fan of David Garnham‘s music; the way he can dial into straight and true folk music and then shift gears to the open highway of an alt-country song with his band (the Reasons to Live) in full flight. The latter is perfectly executed on this new track, ‘Holding Pattern’. The song swaggers … Continue reading

NEW MUSIC: Looch Lewis – Free Dirt

Sydney musician Looch Lewis has released a cover of Died Pretty’s ‘Free Dirt’, the last track on their 1988 album Lost and strangely the title of their previous album though the song didn’t appear on it. The original featured Don Walker on piano and Astrid Munday on backing vocals. Lewis stays true to the original, … Continue reading

NEW MUSIC: Annie Keating – Marigold

Starting on low-slung electric guitar chords and and a relaxed backbeat, Annie Keating digs out a wonderful sound on ‘Marigold’, taken from her 2021 album Bristol County Tides, her eighth full-length. I like the way there’s a toughness to the sound of the track, that bluesy country rock that Lucinda Williams harnesses so well, but … Continue reading

NEW MUSIC: Aaron Ross & The Peach Leaves – Catch A Glimpse

What do you get when you cross T-Rex with Wilco and The Rolling Stones? Something akin to the soaring country rock of ‘Catch A Glimpse’, the new single from Aaron Ross & The Peach Leaves. Ross was a member of math rock band Hella (with Zach Hill of Deathgrips and Spencer Seim of sBACH and … Continue reading

NEW MUSIC: David Quinn – Born To Lose

Hot nights and a sultry blues rock groove are the order of the day on this new track from Indiana-based David Quinn. We last wrote about Quinn when he released his excellent album Wanderin’ Fool last year. This year’s new album Letting Go finds him broadening his sound and continuing his rich vein of songwriting. … Continue reading
