Broken Stay Open Sky is the fourth full-length album by Red River Dialect, and their first for Paradise of Bachelors, due out 2nd February.

The band have shared the album’s lead single, Kukkuripa, a gently meandering, contemplative folk tale that has a sweeping, cinematic grandeur to it.

Mad Mackerel's Best of November 2012

Even though Christmas is looming and the deluge of end-of-year best of lists are starting to appear on the horizon, November still gave us plenty of cracking new tunes to enjoy. Here are our pick of the best of the downloads from November’s posts, together with a few newbies to tickle the earbuds too. Dive in.

Download Crushed Out – Push Down & Twist mp3 (from Want To Give)
Primal surf-garage rock’n’roll.

Download Split Screens – Born mp3 (from Split Screens EP)
Subtle psychedelia with an expansive feel, dense layers and dream-like croon.

Download D.B. Rouse – Love Is A Mexican Wrestling Match mp3 (from Vaudeville Routine)
Beautifully judged folk melancholia with lyrics that mix the everyday with the surreal.

Download Harriet – No Way Out mp3
Straddles the line between classic Americana songs and the sonic experimentation of electronic music.

Space Wolves – 6th Street
Mix of garage, surf and pop in a similar vein as The Babies.

a

Indian Jewelry – Eva Cherie
Taps into the primordial consciousness through dissonance and drone, with fractured melodies, white noise, and tribal energy.

a

Linfinity – Red Nation Waltz
Uptempo blend of indie folk.

a

Download Raymond Byron & The White Freighter – Little Death Shaker mp3 (from The Muse November Sampler)
Gauzy harmonies and sparse, buzzing guitar riffs that combine to create something dark, dreamy and imperfectly pretty.

Download Denison Witmer – In Your Hands mp3 (from Insound Digital Mixtape- November ’12)
As authentic a slice of dusty highway Americana as you’re likely to find anywhere.

Download The Winter Sounds – The Sun Also Rises mp3 (from Runner)
Frenetic, anthemic, catchy, and smart 80s inspired indie-pop.

Download Jacob Morris – Wet Cigarette mp3 (from Moths)
Jaunty, folk-inflected, psychedelic pop.

Widowspeak – Ballad Of The Golden Hour
Mazzy Star style jangle and psych-folk, given an uneasy twist that makes this a real gem

a

Downloads Joshua James – Queen Of The City mp3 (from From The Top Of Williamette Mountain)
First taste of singer-songwriter’s much anticipated new album.

Download The Dead Heads – When I’m Dead mp3 (from Go Ape Shit!)
Eclectc mix of 60s hippie flip to 90s scrungy grunge with a bit of shoegazey pyrotechnics and a dab of drone too.

Download The Merry Go Round – Yayaya mp3 (from Yayaya)
Energetic, no-frills swampy, sleazy blues and psychedelia.

Download Woollen Kits – Be You mp3 (from Four Girls)
Effortlessly channels the proto-punk sounds of Detroit and classic garage rock.

Download Black Market Karma – Jingle mp3 (from Easy Listening)
Hypnotic and pulsating space rock.

Red River Dialect – Dawns Man
Muscular, rolling bass lines and echoes of classic footstomping British sea shanties, twisting sinewy guitars and the fluid, hypnotic rhythms of the African desert, rockabilly twang and shimmering indie-style guitars. Brilliant.

a

Download Big Harp – You Can’t Save ‘Em All mp3 (from Chain Letters)
A song of pained apathy built on a foundation of crackling fuzz bass, angular electric guitars and keyboards.a

The Deadline Shakes – Don’t You Be Too Cool
New single from Glasgow based indie-rockers that ticks all the right boxes. Fizzy.

a

Algernon Doll – Son Of A Gun, Brother To None
Another taste from an album of off-kilter, deeply personal folk.

a

The Grand Prospect – Evelina
As good a slice of alt-country / Americana as you’re likely to come across in many a sunlit filled evening rocking on the back-porch.

a

Jason Lytle & Ben Bridwell – Don’t You Take It Too Bad
Top notch Townes Van Zandt cover – click through to download for free.

a

And to finish off we have The Longwalls stalking a line between noisy post-pop and twang with new tune Kowloon, which is the title track from a new 8 track EP. Then there is another taste from Theatre Royal’s forthcoming album At The End Of A River, The Sea… in the shape of prophetic track Will England Rain Itself Dry? The Pinery Boy is brilliant roadhouse honky-tonk inspired Americana from The Emperors Of Wyoming, and lastly Golden Void have offered up this free download of their cover of Jimi Hendrix’s 1983.

Mad Mackerel Recommends...Red River Dialect.

Although this has been out for a while and we’re late to the party, as soon as we’d heard the track Dawns Man by Red River Dialect we knew we would still have to post it for any other poor unfortunates like us who have yet to discover the song. The damn thing has been on near constant repeat…

The band hail from Cornwall and their album awellupontheway has been out (as far as we can tell) since the summer. It is a folk album but their is nothing twee about this – it has muscular, rolling bass lines and the echoes of classic footstomping British sea shanties, it has twisting sinewy guitars that call to mind Tom Verlaine and the fluid, hypnotic rhythms of the African desert. It has a rockabilly twang and shimmering indie-style guitars. It is tense, sharp, and savage. It is claustrophobic, brutal and wild. Above all it is played with a fire and a skill that you rarely come across.

It has echoes of everything from the catchy rumble of the best of Sons & Daughters to the Waterboys celtic yearnings and the psychedelic prowess of classic Fairport or the Incredible String Band. It is as much Straw Dogs as it is The Wicker Man

Grab yourself Dawns Man for free and get yourself over to their Bandcamp page to order a copy of the album. You won’t be disappointed.
