We are ultra excited by the return of Justin Townes Earle and Champagne Corolla, which comes from forthcoming album Kids In The Street,  T. Hardy Morris who has shared a new track NY and Sharon Van Etten who reimagines the Skeeter Davis track End of the World for a new soundtrack compilation based around The Man In The High Castle TV series. Bonny Doon have also shared some more rolling, meditative Americana with Relieved and for the folkies we have the first taste of Keston Cobblers Club’s new album.

Big Walnuts Yonder is a new band that consists of members from Wilco, Deerhoof, Tera Melos and Minutemen and Raise The Drawbridges? is suitably manic while Sam Amidon is suitably surreal for just over 90 seconds on his First 100 Days Offering that also features Inga.

New Video: Keston Cobblers Club - Won't Look Back

A much loved discovery of Mrs M’s, five piece pop folkies The Keston Cobblers Club are set to release their new album Wildfire on Tricolour Records /Absolute via Universal in June.

Triggered by teenage obsessions with British power pop and Glaswegian indie dreamers, the twelve track collection is a sonic journey of sounds. Building on the band’s bedrock of urgent anthems, thumped drums, sweet strums and tuba, the band have fused their folk based roots with 90s synth hooks, huge orchestral waves and choral arrangements which they describe as “a blanket of voices.”

Check out the uplifting first single, Won’t Look Back, which rouses with an anthemic chorus about not dwelling on your problems,

And so it was Wilderness again (or Wildness if you were the somewhat disconnected and over-excited John Newman) – this year even bigger (an increase in capacity to 15,000) and still sold out. It is surely the premier boutique festival on the circuit in the undeniably stunning setting of Cornbury Park, which happily lies within a short walk of Mackerel Towers.

By its nature it is not a festival with the emphasis primarily on the music – too much fine dining, fly fishing, horse riding, performance art, debates, and cookery schooling going on for that – and as one other local resident archly observed “they might all look like hobos in here, but the car park is crammed full of BMWs and 4x4s“. Indeed Mrs M herself noted with wry amusement a hunt for mussels in our local Co-op (for breakfast you understand) by one such floaty couple obviously not used to the constraints of a basic convenience store compared with your average Islington deli.

wilderness showNo matter, for music there was and for the most part it was damn good. Friday fare came from the slightly ominous, brooding neo-folk of Six Toes, somewhat at odds with the sunshine as they performed at the Bandstand. They were followed by a vibrant, energetic set from the Keston Cobblers’ Club, a long-standing favourite and discovery of Mrs M, they turned the rapidly swelling crowd into jolly, good-natured barn-dancers borne along on the infectious rhythms and pure joyousness of the set. Back on the main stage, Tom Odell pleased the mainstream as he hammered his piano and hollered out a set that firmly placed him in the box-seat as the new Elton John. In the folk tent Emily Barker & The Red Clay Halo turned in one of the highlights of the weekend with a brilliant collection of country and folk, and amply demonstrated why their latest album has been receiving so much critical acclaim. A neon-filled spectacular finale of hippy inspired electronica from Empire of the Sun brought down the curtain on day one.

Saturday gave us more from the Keston’s, reprising their set in the folk tent to a similarly enthusiastic response and another highlight in the shape of Temples who delivered a fabulous selection of West Coast inspired psychedelia mixed with hypnotic rhythms and the occasional meaty glam-rock stomp. Sadly Melody’s Echo TrapezeChamber seemed somewhat flat, their orchestral and grandiose dream pop lacking the spark needed to elevate it above the merely average, and it took a typically quirky and idiosyncratic performance from Martha Wainwright to liven up the rapidly growing numbers making their way to the main stage for the headline act.

And that headline act was none other than Sixto Díaz Rodriguez, Sugarman himself. Now 71, helped on stage to his seat where a rapturous reception, a couple of bottles of water and an eminently sensible cup of tea waited for him. Despite his frailties, he did not disappoint, mixing self-deprecating humour (“All I want is to be treated like an ordinary legend“) with philosophical observations (“Be gentle with your anger, hate is too powerful emotion to waste on someone you don’t like“), political comments (“More women should run for office“) and even a gracious thank you to his Cornbury Park host Lady Rotherwick, he entertained for every moment he was on stage. From beneath an ultra stylish black Fedora, he delivered a sublime set of folk and soul that stirred the heart and set plenty of feet a shufflin’. A mass sing-a-long to Sugar Man in the dusk was extra special, as was Inner City Blues, but amongst a wonderful collection it was perhaps I Wonder, that was the show stealer, as even snoozing couples roused themselves for one final dance.

The Bees at Wilderness On Sunday, the day was stolen by the Isle of Wight’s very own pop-pysch rockers The Bees, who opened with A Minha Menina and included Winter Rose, Listening Man and a fab rendition of I Really Need Love from their last album (which Mrs M had to download immediately). Reggae undercurrents, soulful harmonies, tight musicanship – perfect festival fodder. Laid back rhythms had the crowd swaying in time. All the Bees seems to be multi-instrumentalists – just come along hang out and have a good time vibe.

Festival closers Noah and the Whale actually played quite a good set – all their most well known tunes including L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N., Life is Life, Blue Skies, Tonight’s the Kind of Night, and closing with Five Years Time. Then an encore of The First Days of Spring, which being quite orchestral, made a perfect match for all the fireworks going off at the end. Lovely.

Finally the walk home, avoiding the late-night exodus of all those too-fast BMWs and 4x4s urgently heading home for Monday’s 8am breakfast meeting, and down our rural country lanes too. Tsk tsk.

New Tunes On Monday

A new week, some new tunes to soften the blow.

We have a taste (if that’s the right word) from Diarrhea Planet’s new album I’m Rich Beyond Your Wildest Dreams in the shape of the sleazy, roiling Babyhead. By way of contrast we have Frankie Rose’s new track Sorrow from her scheduled new long player Herein Wild, a deceptively simple and sweetly melancholic pop track that is hard to resist.

We have a second track from surf loving, garage popsters La Vega and their track Jackie from new album Wave, and (by way of contrast) we have Bambara’s snarling, fragmented, aural desolation in the shape of Hawk Bones from their Dreamviolence album.

We have the gorgeous, rural folk-pop of The Great American Canyon Band’s Lost At Sea from their four-track EP of the same name (watch the excellent video here), and lastly Mrs M’s faves The Keston Cobblers’ Club have a new single of quintessentially English pastoral folk, A Scene Of Plenty is a pure and simple delight.

MM Shorts 378: Keston Cobblers' Club

Based on the folklore of the old, penniless Cobbler of Keston who threw barn dances for the villagers, wearing their soles thin and thus creating business…The modern Keston Cobblers’ Club have brought this ethos back with contemporary, catchy music fused with the grittiness of traditional British folk.

Already much beloved of Mrs M and the High Priestess, have yourself a listen to Beam – the new single from their summer EP A Scene of Plenty, which saw a release last week.

MM's Best of 2012 (100-81)

So the waiting is over, and here are the first twenty entries in our Top 100 of 2012, part of MM’s much expanded Best of the Year review. Over the next five days we will reveal our favourite songs and those of our contributors: Mrs Mackerel, Christy Popper, Barry-Sean, Dr Roddy, Polly Pocket, Middle Sprat, Starbie, and Toy Steve. These are not the most “popular” songs of the year, nor do they lay any subjective claim to being the “best”, but they are without doubt the favourites of all those who have written for MM one way or another this year.

So without further ado…

100 GRASSFIGHT – NASSAU
With shades of Interpol in the hypnotic, propulsive percussion, echoes of Dinosaur Jr in the swirling guitar, and a classic indie deep, monotone vocal, Nassau successfully ticks all the necessary boxes for a post-punk extravaganza.

Download Grassfight – Nassau mp3

99 FUTURE OF THE LEFT – CITY OF EXPLODED CHILDREN
Humming, hypnotic , menacing krautrock rumble over which Andy Falkous intones possibly the best opening lyric of the year:  “Chicken tikka bathsalts found at bus stops

(No stream or video available)

98 WELL HUNG HEART – DEVIL
Like the feral lovechild of Howling Wolf, Mick Jagger, Joan Jett and Suzi Quattro fronting a hybrid of Nirvana and the Black Keys. All in a good way. A very good way.

a

97 FIELD REPORT – I AM NOT WAITING ANYMORE
Haunting, poignant and fragile first single that heralded a stunning debut album of more than five years in the making.

Download Field Report – I Am Not Waiting Anymore mp3

96 THE WAVE PICTURES – SEAGULLS
With an infectious guitar jangle and clever lyrics – reminiscent of classic 80s UK indie bands like The Brilliant Corners – this year The Wave Pictures finally became the UK’s answer to the brilliant Mountain Goats. (BSF)

a

95 JUSTIN TOWNES EARLE – LOWER EAST SIDE
In the Spring of 2012 Justin Townes Earle released Nothing’s Gonna Change The Way You Feel About Me Now. His best record to date, this song, tucked away in the middle of the album perfectly captured how it feels to be in a city of millions yet to be completely alone.

a

94 BECK – I JUST STARTED HATING SOME PEOPLE TODAY
A track of three very distinctive parts. The first to the twang of country guitar and cowboy vocals telling us that he’s seen the light and that people really aren’t very nice at all. He hates them all. Then ears are suddenly assaulted by a volley of Jack White’s fury reminiscent of late 70s punk before finishing on smooth, jazzy notes as Karen Elson,with silky tones, lets a bloke called Randy know that he is “Sooooooooooo dead“. Insane but brilliant. (BSF)

(No stream or video available)

93 DAUGHN GIBSON – ALL HELL
Rarely can the opening “insane preacher monologue” approach been used as effectively as this. Yet 45 seconds of spittle-flecked insanity is taken far, far deeper into black, murky waters as over  a humming bassline and fragmented crackles and loops, Gibson’s unflinching baritone reminds us over and over again “its a long way down“.

a

92 CALEXICO – FORTUNE TELLER
Gorgeous standout from the Algiers album with the ghostliest of vocals.

a

91 THE MARK LANEGAN BAND – GRAY GOES BLACK
Gravel voiced soul-searching carried out over a motorik rhythm.

a

90 THE MAGNETIC FIELDS – ANDREW IN DRAG
This song is really a bit of fun and it makes me smile every time I hear it. A guy turns up to see his mate, Andrew, dress up in drag. He does it on a whim for a laugh but ends up fancying him. An amusing story that bobs along with a catchy, but low-key tune. (BSF)

a

89 BEN HOWARD – ESMERELDA
Murkier, darker waters abound for this highlight from this year’s Burgh Island EP. Howard’s lonely voice struggles to break free from a claustrophobic and ominous backdrop.

a

88 SHOVELS & ROPE – BIRMINGHAM
Much like The Lumineers, Shovels & Rope deal in unashamed folk anthems whose harmonies effortlessly evoke good-time, back porch sing-a-longs amongst the fireflies and the moonshine.

a

87 LAST AMERICAN BUFFALO – BREAK MY HEART
At the turn of the year, Last American Buffalo released a short series of free-to-download digital signals that were uniformly brilliant. The first of two entries in our Best Of listing, Break My Heart is exquisitely blended folk, blues and classic country rock with a bitter edge that spits and snarls its discontent with the world.

a

86 FATHER JOHN MISTY – ONLY SON OF THE LADIESMAN
What a voice. This song is worth a listen just for Father John Misty’s delivery. It’s like bubble bath without the bathwater – a hymn to the dead ladies man. Try sitting back with a cup of coffee, closing your eyes and letting this track soothe away your mental aches and pains (BSF)

a

85 S T E A K H O U S E – SPIDER BITE
Somehow crossing 70s krautrock with desert blues and a stoned rockabilly twang to create a mesmerising journey through a venom-induced surreal otherworld.

a

84 THE LUMINEERS – HO-HEY
As winning a combination of catchy folk-stomp and hollered vocals as it is possible to imagine. A deserved break-out hit for one of the most heartwarming success stories of the year.

a

83 THE WALKMEN – HEARTBREAKER
The first of four entries from one of the finest albums of the year. Heartbreaker is the sound of a band in complete control of their own destiny, who know their destination and exactly how they’re going to get there. Thrilling, urgent and vital. It’s not the singer, it’s the song.

a

82 FREEDOM FRY – SUMMER IN THE CITY
If there was any justice, Summer In The City would have been the soundtrack of barbecues and bakeouts the world over. It was as perfect as indie-pop is able to get, it made you want to pop the top off a cold one and party on the rooftops all day long.

a

81 KESTON COBBLER’S CLUB – FOR WORDS
A truly beautiful folk composition, light of touch and sure of foot.

CHECK BACK TOMORROW FOR TRACKS 80 – 61

Mrs Mackerel's TFI Friday (17th August).

A whirlwind week began with the Wilderness Festival (thanks Ronan) and ended with my liver feeling like it needs to be squeezed out and dried on the radiator.

We have returned from Devon today in the pouring rain from five days with 38 big and small people in an Agatha Christie style house, where the sun shone and at times the rain poured down. There was a mass lake jump, a talent show and a custard pie fight. One night we played Blankety Blank in the style of Fifty Shades of Grey… although thankfully none of us had read it. Yet.

We ate like kings, drank like bastards, and laughed like drains. We all made the effort. I’ve known some of these people nearly 25 years and I hope that I at least know them for at least the same again.

My find of the Wilderness Festival was the Keston Cobblers’ Club and it seems so perfectly right to leave you with my song of the week (even though we posted it not so long ago) because it’s just lovely and it brings a tear to my fishy eye.

See I’m proud, to call you my friend and I know it’s not perfect, but at least there’s no end.

Apparently, they’re no good with words. But sometimes when you’re no good with words, a song will do just fine.

Mrs Mackerel x

Something old… and something new: for Devon, and forever ago.

Day three and more sun, surely one the only sequences of three whole days without rain that we’ve had all summer. Despite 14,000 pairs of feet, the estate still looked rather fine and the spirit of village-green good naturedness was still at the forefront of everything. On the bandstand the Keston Cobblers’ Club provided the perfect soundtrack for the setting with a gorgeous set of gentle folk that bodes very well for their forthcoming album.

Elsewhere Grant Lee Buffalo’s reformation and return was met with a set that was straining at the leash to recreate past glories – no freewheelin’ here and they played as though lives depended on it, much to the appreciation of the audience who were then soothed back into a state of soporific calm by the reflective words and strummed chords of singer-songwriter Benjamin Francis Leftwich.

A peculiarly short cameo set from Giant Giant Sand was sweet enough, but perhaps wasn’t even long enough to leave us wanting more, which we would surely have done based on the evidence of the latest record. Then as the sun set and Spiritualized took the stage we were treated to a glorious set of epic, gospel tinged psychedelia that matched the surroundings perfectly – from the opening riffs of Hey Jane via to the closing pulsating Take Me To The Other Side via the mortality questioning classics of Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space and Soul on Fire it was another stand out set in a weekend of such delights.

And lastly Wilco, clearly enjoying themselves and mixing up “a bunch of mellow stuff” before proclaiming “let’s dance”, the set was bursting with back catalogue classics and classics to be. Overcoming a mid-set tendency for some extended guitar histrionics the sublime Handshake Drugs was perhaps the song of the weekend whilst closer A Shot In The Arm pushed it close.

The darkness fell and still smiling, still cheering the crowds departed for tents and dancing whilst we, a little smugly, strolled up the hill to our own beds!
