NEW MUSIC: Loris and the Lion – Eat Me Alice

Here’s some bewitching and baroque English folk that possesses hints of Kate Bush, Aldous Harding and Joni Mitchell. Loris and the Lion (songwriter Georgia Harris and musician/producer Rich Bond) create a rich, shape-shifting piece of hallucinogenic Albion folk. What begins as an ornate and sparse sound is gradually transformed as elements are added to the … Continue reading

NEW MUSIC: Drayton Farley – American Dream

Drayton Farley (Woodstock, Alabama) is a new name to us but his voice caught our ear right off the bat. The lyrics fell into place pretty immediately too. Never over-forced, he balances the poetry and direct political commentary with a tasteful touch of melancholic country. The song definitely calls into the same camp as the … Continue reading

NEW MUSIC: David Garnham & The Reasons To Live – Red Wine, Cigarettes, Dark Chocolate, You

Here’s a beautiful new track from Darwin songwriter David Garnham. It’s an old-timey sway of a song that drifts along like a warm summer breeze. That lilting country melody and a chorus that paints a wonderful picture of life’s essentials. Garnham describes it as Jimmie Rodgers meets Jimmy Little. The song is the first taste … Continue reading
