ALBUM REVIEW: Brent Cobb – And Now, Let’s Turn To Page…

Brent Cobb released one of our favourite albums of 2020 with Keep ‘Em On They Toes, a record that was loose, warm and possessing some brilliant turns of phrase amid the laidback rhythms and grooves. Now he’s taken an interesting approach with the followup, digging deep into Southern gospel and hymns of his youth. A … Continue reading

NEW MUSIC: Curse of Lono – Ursula Andress

Sink into the slow and slinky groove of Curse of Lono‘s single ‘Ursula Andress’ with its sweet swaying vocal melodies, a touch of Buffalo Springfield buried in it’s music DNA and its subtle mix of Americana and gentle psychedelia. Vocally there’s a touch of Matt Johnson from The The in Felix Bechtolsheimer’s voice. The song … Continue reading

NEW MUSIC: David James Allen – Please Let Me In [VIDEO]

Taken from David James Allen‘s third album, The Architect, ‘Please Let Me In’ is yet another great example of the way he blends rhythm, energy and melody in his countrified songs, topped off by a voice that’s rich with personality, grit and grace. As Allen explains, “I wrote ‘Please Let Me In’ as a sort … Continue reading

NEW MUSIC: HaydenGoSeek – The Great Unknown

‘The Great Unknown’ is the latest single from New Zealand songwriter HaydenGoSeek (also the front person of Cheap Fakes) and it details his travels from smalltown New Zealand to living in Australia. The song is a bristling piece of melodic country-tinged folk that wins on account of Hayden’s vocal and the counterpoint fiddle that shadows … Continue reading

NEW MUSIC: Robert Connely Farr – Going Away To Leave You

Dirty, raw, dragged through the dirt and spirited like a life well lived. That’s the sound of this rough and rugged cover of Bentonia Bluesman Jimmy “Duck” Holmes’ ‘Going Away To Leave You’, by Robert Connely Farr. It’s all in the tension and stormy mood of those six strings and Robert’s gruff vocal on this … Continue reading

VIDEO PREMIERE: Albert Loss – Papunya Road

Straight outta Perth comes Albert Loss and his loping, heartache of a song, ‘Papunya Road’, draped in pedal steel and banjo. There’s country and folk in the mix as he sings of the ups and downs of fatherhood, evoking the sprawling beauty of the red centre and the tenderness of family. There’s a perfect tumble and … Continue reading

NEW MUSIC: Rachel Fannan & Jacob Miller – Sacred Regard

Here’s a beautifully low key duet between Rachel Fannan and Jacob Miller. Half-strummed guitar strings ring out as the duo sing a world weary ode to a missed connection and a romantic “could-have-been”. The song reminds me of M. Ward; a late-night folk sound, warbly and worn, like a lost, sweet and ramshackle standard. “Sometimes … Continue reading
