Here is our latest collection of musical films for you. A regular pot pourri of musical styles from Girl Skin’s gorgeously fragile chamber folk to Sit Down’s oozing amalgam of doom metal and sludgy punk by way of The Cavemen’s amphetamine-fueled rhythms and scorching guitar, coupled with drunk and disorderly vocal tirades, and First Aid Kit’s ever perfect vocal harmonies.

There is Steve Mason’s soulful new single, brash snot-rock from TV COMA and the pummelling psych rock of the Oh Sees and Black Delta Movement and more hypnotic stoner wooze from The Holydrug Couple.

Introducing >>> Copper Viper

Posted: August 24, 2018 in Acoustic, Folk, Music

London-based traditional folk duo Copper Viper have released their latest single Hung Up Alone.

Beginning intimately with just intricate vocal harmonies and the gentle hum of frogs croaking in the distance, a sense of warmth is immediately apparent. The pace then picks up as some mesmerising fiddle playing comes into play alongside melodic acoustic guitar, giving Hung Up Alone a classic British folk feel.

Listen here.

 

New Album From Laura Gibson

Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Laura Gibson has shared details of her new album, Goners, which will be released on 26th October via Barsuk Records.

The album explores themes of grief and loss and the first taste is the haunting and beautiful Tenderness, an intimate and somewhat pensive fable that reflects, almost dreamlike, on how we project pain and lash out, holding on to each other’s trauma and sorrow.

Certain men can smell a wound a room away, you are melancholy well, beauty only made you lonelier

It’s lovely. Listen below.

 

 

We previously posted Valley Maker’s rambling soulful Light On The Ground from forthcoming album Rhododendron, and now we have the elegiac Americana of the record’s opener for you, A Couple Days.

Long standing MM fave Micah P. Hinson will release a new album with the Musicians of the Apocalypse titled, When I Shoot At You With Arrows, I Will Shoot To Destroy You through Full Time Hobby on 26th October.

There have been several times in Micah P. Hinson’s life where the idea of an Apocalypse has occurred- a death and rebirth- whether that was a severe back injury, a violent road accident, the temporary death of his arms, a love for drugs, a hate of drugs, time spent behind bars or within rooms containing mentally-challenged people, time spent behind closed doors with bizarre characters of all shapes and sizes.

All this and more combine in the new record which was recorded in 24 hours somewhere in East Texas. It iis the follow-up to last year’s excellent Micah P. Hinson Presents the Holy Strangers, and the first track from it is Small Spaces.

Have a listen.
