The Oh Hellos – Through the Deep, Dark Valley (2012)

Posted by on April 1, 2013 with No Commentsas

ohThe Oh Hellos are Maggie and Tyler Heath, music-making siblings hailing from the great state of Texas. Their influences range from Mumford & Sons and The Lumineers to Los Campesinos!, old hymns, and Irish folk songs, bending and blending styles and genres into a unique mixture of eclectic folk rock.Ultimately, The Oh Hellos have put out a record that deserves recognition as one of the best of 2012, and sets them aside from the gaggle of folk-rock wannabes crowding the airwaves.

Posted by on April 1, 2013 with No Commentsas

johnInspired by the music of Ry Cooder and Bert Jansch, Smith creates intricate songs with melodies and lyrics melding seamlessly and his musical inspirations seep through in songs like the title track Great Lakes and Forever To The End. Speaking on the influence of Ry Cooder’s album Bop Till You Drop as a youngster Smith said, ‘That really hit me hard. Just hearing that really intricate guitar and soulful singing. I just remember not knowing what this thing was, or what it meant, but I knew I wanted more’.

Jesse Winchester – Learn To Love It (1974)

Posted by on April 1, 2013 with No Commentsas

As the title suggests, making a virtue of necessity had always been one of Jesse Winchester’s goals, and by the time of the release of his third album, the American expatriate had gone ahead and assumed Canadian citizenship. This seemed to free him to comment explicitly on his antiwar exile in “Pharaoh’s Army” and especially […]

The Milk Carton Kids – The Ash & Clay (2013)

Posted by on April 1, 2013 with No Commentsas

The exquisitely entangled vocal harmonies of tunesmiths Kenneth Pattengale and Joey Ryan are the unadorned calling card of L.A.’s The Milk Carton Kids. Recalling the pure, unadulterated folk/pop charms of Simon and Garfunkel and The Everly Brothers, The Ash & Clay (March 26, ANTI-), the duo’s third album, has a simple, nostalgic feel of campfire-meet-coffeehouse. […]

Good luck trying to pigeonhole Tom Russell based on the fine Road to Bayamon, which manages to sound cohesive while wandering all over the musical map. “Home Before Dark,” one of several numbers here that he later re-recorded with country-soul singer Barrence Whitfield, is a radio-ready rocker, with a great hook and prominent guitar; the […]

When we stumbled across the Keston Cobblers Club back in early 2010 we knew we had found a very special band whose brand of music as well as their vision was unlike any other at the time. Fast forward to 2012 they demonstrate more clearly than ever with their debut album ‘One, For Words‘ that […]
