The Phantom Band

  • 18th February 2011

I have scouts around the world. I can kind of say that now, my reliable friend in Basel, Switzerland, gave me a shout out for The Phantom Band . Turned out to be a shout worth listening to.

Tristen – Eager for your Love

Tristen – Eager for your Love

  • 14th January 2011

By no means planned, here is my second Americana post of the week. Maybe it’s my own personal way of trying to stave off the apparent brit-pop revival that’s around the corner. Please, don’t let it happen. With a slightly more conservative approach compared to Jessica Lea Mayefield, my last…

  • 12th January 2011

Time for some shameless self-promotion. Well sort of. I play cello in a folk/pop group called Silvermoths. I’ve been making music with lead singer and co-writer Emma Churchley along with guitarist Kaziu Gill for around 5 years now – and it just keeps getting better. Silvermoths started around a year…

Jessica Lea Mayfield – Tell Me

  • 7th January 2011

Jessica Lea Mayfield, a 21-year-old singer-songwriter, is forcing me to appreciate country music. Probably in the same way Sheryl Crow did, even Jessica’s nonchalant vocal delivery remind me of the queen of alt-country-rock.

Galapaghost – Neptune – Song for the Weekend

Galapaghost – Neptune – Song for the Weekend

  • 8th October 2010

To us naive Brits (well me at least) Austin Texas is a magical land of tumbleweed, cowboy boots, and of course the not so magical country music. My rodeo view of Austin is gradually being skewered though, especially knowing one of my favourite bands, the folksters Shearwater, come from there….

First Aid Kit cover Fever Ray’s When I Grow Up

  • 28th September 2010

Karin Dreijer Andersson‘s music has already propelled the likes of Jose Gonzales to stardom with his cover of one of my favourite songs, The Knife‘s Heartbeats – and now it seems to be the turn of First Aid Kit. The Swedish folk duo have just released a cover of Fever…
