NEW MUSIC: Harvey Russell – Gave You Flowers

Harvey Russell’s latest single ‘Gave You Flowers’ rounds out the highly successful campaign for his 2019 country music album Liquid Damage. ‘Gave You Flowers’ kicks along with a honky tonk twang and country rock swagger as he details the well-intentioned but ultimately failed efforts of making up for bad behaviour. Russell’s band The Widowmakers provide the requisite quick-footed, toe-tapping swing and … Continue reading

NEW MUSIC: Tré Burt – Sweet Misery

There’s a really beautiful lyrical dance and flow to the cadence of Sacramento songwriter Tré Burt on this new single ‘Sweet Misery’. Melodic and wistful, the song drifts and sways courtesy of piano, some fine acoustic guitar playing , harmonica and shuffling drums. There’s a Dylanesque quality to the track and it also reminds me … Continue reading

NEW MUSIC: Mercury Slim – Space Cadet

Intersecting indie dream pop and a cosmic country sound, Mercury Slim has released one damn fine new single in ‘Space Cadet’. As he sings of avoiding the trappings of societal responsibilities and expectations there’s a lush musical underpinning with pedal steel sparkling and swooning over lazily strummed acoustic guitars and a funk-lite drum kit. It … 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

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.

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. The song has a touch of Townes and Blaze Foley about it too. Above all it’s the sweet vocal hooks of ‘No Way Home…’ that work their way deep into your short … Continue reading

NEW MUSIC: Georgia State Line – Every Time

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. He’s certainly had his trials and tribulations and he ended up living in Ireland where he’s continued to work at his craft and periodically release new material. Now, in … Continue reading
