More From Eaves

More From Eaves

A while ago we posted the richly tender and melancholic As Old As The Grave from the debut EP by singer-songwriter Eaves, out on Heavenly on the 10th November.

Now we have the other two tracks that make up the limited edition 7″ and digital release. Have a listen to the stark piano and vocals of Timber and the acoustic guitar led Alone In My Mind (For Mannington Bowes). These are haunting, fragile-as-gossamer songs that are as worldly-wise and weary as they are perceptive.

Arborea Rework Bad Moon Rising

Our favourite ambient folkies Arborea have announced their only official release for 2014. It is a one-off digital single that is a acoustic-slide/vocal duet arrangement of Creedence Clearwater Revival’s classic choogler Bad Moon Rising.

Have a listen below and it is available via the usual digital suspects or can be ordered via Bandcamp here. Sales will help fund a new album so make sure you buy a copy!

New Video: John Southworth – Ode To The Morning Sky

John Southworth’s latest video, Ode To The Morning Sky, features the singer-songwriter wandering through fields and neighborhoods as a vintage clad football player, reflecting on his childhood through clips of home videos and family photos. Piano driven, and featuring his ever so slightly melancholic vocals, it is the latest track from his forthcoming double LP, Niagara, out September 30th on Tin Angel Records.

Field Division – Faultlines

We’re thoroughly enjoying this sweetly gentle slice of dreamy pastoral folk from Field Division.

Faultlines is the debut single from the Des Moines duo and precedes a planned long-player, which on this evidence will be well worth getting hold of…

I see you walking through the valley
Heading straight to the ravine
Where in the hell do you think you’re going,
Nobody yet knows your name

Steve Palmer – Unblinking Sun

Steve Palmer - Unblinking Sun

The ethos and energy of punk rock first inspired Steve Palmer to pick up a guitar, but it was his discovery of the music of John Fahey in 2012 that renewed and deepened that interest. For his first full-length, Unblinking Sun, he filters cosmic krautrock, drone, and psychedelic improvisation through the vernacular of the American fingerpicked folk tradition.

We have a couple of excellent tracks from it to stream or download, Cassini and Six Dollar Sunglasses. We’ll wager that fans of William Tyler or Clan Nugent will find much to like here.

New Video: Saint Saviour – I Remember

Saint Saviour releases her new album of layered, lush, pastoral folk, In The Seams, on November 4th through Surface Area.

The lead single is the achingly beautiful I Remember, watch the video below.

“I remember when we would hang about in hollow trees
New sounds, sitting smoking leaves
Walking past boarded up windows gets you down
Shit town, knew you couldn’t breathe”
