MM Shorts 623: Saint Agnes

A short while ago we posted the new single from cinematic psych outfit Saint Agnes, titled A Beautiful Day For Murder. Now we have the b-side Where The Lightning Strikes - a blues stomping, dirty rock n roll number with psychedelic organs, screaming guitars and haunting harmonica.

And we have the video for you, with a stream of both the a and the b-side for you.

MM Shorts 621: The Bloodhounds

From East L.A., The Bloodhounds play fresh, edgy R&B tinged blues with a hint of punk swagger and latin groove, but always with maximum emphasis placed on good old fashioned rock’n’roll.

Debut album Let Loose is out in early November via Alive Naturalsound Records, and until then you can check out the first track from the album, the somewhat self explanatory Try A Little Reefer.

Quiet Life - Housebroken Man

Here are a couple of tracks from Quiet Life’s recent, excellent EP Housebroken Man.

The first, the title track, features a rollicking cameo from Cary Ann Hearst from Shovels & Rope, and the second, a mesmerising and poignant cover of Townes Van Zandt’s Waiting Around To Die features Jim James of My Morning Jacket.

Video: The Ghost Wolves – Attack Attack Attack

The Ghost Wolves are inspired by delta blues, loud garage rock, and American roots music – a genre they call ‘stomp and roll.’

Their excellent new LP Man, Woman, Beast was released a few weeks ago and we’ve already posted the video for Gonna Live from the record. Now watch the video for the equally ferocious Attack Attack Attack.

New Album From The Pine Hill Haints

New Album From The Pine Hill Haints

The Pine Hill Haints are a group of troubadours and kindred spirits that mix elements of folk, rockabilly, bluegrass and Americana, with just a hint of punk. With the help of a rotating cast of friends and storytellers, the band has travelled the world, sporadically releasing records that have mostly been self-recorded and sold from the back of their van. Their sound has grown and evolved with each new experience, but their goal has always been to capture a living pulse, addressing feelings of loneliness, depression, and everlasting joy and exploring the mysteries of life and death.

Their new LP, The Magik Sounds of the Pine Hill Haints, sees a release on 30th September via K Records. It delivers more of the band’s self-described “Alabama Ghost Music,” with its smoky melodies and dark whispers of the haunted South. Opening track Ms Pacman sets the stage with a sweet, storytelling charm and an air of mystery.
