Little Lapin is an unsigned pop-folk artist originally from Devon and is now based in Bristol (UK) who writes honest music straight from the heart. We’ve seen other recent indications she was recently based in Christchurch, New Zealand, and just recently wrapped up a successful post-show for the Austin City Limits Music Festival in the US in the last few days.
The new single Magnet Eyes came out around the last few days of July 2014 and you can check out more of her music at Soundcloud, where we luckily stumbled across her account… or at Bandcamp below.
Also, be sure to check out the fantastic embed on this page of New Zealand photographer Rambo Estrada’s surfing images in sync with her powerful song ‘Silent Tears.’Download Magnet Eyes HypeMachine
A Roadhouse Rewind fills the bill for Roadhouse 502. I’ll be back next week with a new edition.
We continue in the theme established last week - a full hour of new blues. With the labels on a new release roll, nearly every track in this edition was released in the past three months. Big Joe Maher & Jeff Sarli, Roomful of Blues, Delbert McClinton, Tinsley Ellis, and Little Arthur Duncan step out with brand new tracks. It’s truly another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard - the 242nd Roadhouse.

Another run through the audio channels at Soundcloud brings us a rare and new find from Canada, Bride & Groom, an Indie Folk duo based out of Montréal, Quebec. The duo is guitarist/songwriter Jesse Daniel Smith and cellist Kaitlyn Raitz, who apparently started collaborating in 2014.
After a successful IndieGoGo campaign the couple were able to write, record, and produce their self-titled EP, now available at the Bandcamp link below in addition to other popular streaming music platforms. Do make sure to check out their exceptional video for On the Run, which we’ve embedded further below.Download On the Run HypeMachine

Back in its early days, Dave’s Lounge was a weekly show with about six songs per episode. This week’s mix might have been better served being two of those old shows. The first half of this show has a very different feel to it than the second half. Perhaps that just goes to show how versatile this music we call downtempo really is…

We featured Trivial Shields (the project of Christian Carpenter) twice before, now he’s released his EP Vassal States. He says of the EP: “After much protracted preparation, hesitation and self-vexation, Vassal States, the EP I wrote and recorded while living and teaching English in Istanbul, is finally available for your listening enjoyment. Vassal States, is a concise, experimental pop album, tinged with sprinkles of electronica and finished with a heavy dose of existentialist culture-shock. The attached YouTube link is a trailer for the album that explains it’s creation further.”
It was written & Recorded in Istanbul Jan – Jun 2013, mixed in Early Winter 2014 by Jake Birch & Christian Carpenter, and released 23 September 2014.

We recently had the pleasure of running into today’s featured track over at soundcloud after diving through multiple releases, getting stopped in our tracks with Shimensoka. The name of the song looks to translate to something along the lines of being surrounded by adversaries and thus isolated in a hostile situation.
The group that released the song, Thalassocracy is comprised of Jake May and Lloyd King who hit it out of the park with the single. It contains a crunchy sludged out guitar line that creates a great visceral feel throughout and even pushed me into revisiting some of good days of old DGC releases and yes, even the ladies of L7. The single was released by the Pizza Club via Art is Hard Records which you can quickly sign up for at the following link.
Thalassocracy will be performing live at Brighton’s Indietro Secret Festival in the UK on October 26th.Download Shimensoka HypeMachine

Incredibility I went to a gig this week. Alec from Clap Your Hands Say Yeah played at Matthew from Song, by Toad’s house on Friday night. And it was a great gig. That’s the photo I accidentally took on the bus through town on the way back home. Soaking wet and fortified by Icelandic white beer. No, I don’t know either.
On today’s podcast most of the tracks seem to be a few years old, including THAT song by Beat Happening, a track from the second CYHSY album, and tracks from I Believe in Sunshine and The Also-Bands. Those last two being bands I know (or knew) nothing about.
There’s also some rambling chat. And a promise that the podcast will return to a regularly scheduled live slot at 8pm on Thursday nights as of next week!

Following his previous two albums, The Hardship Diaries and Dreamoirs, UK artist Dave McPherson returns with his third album Journal Of A Journey Buoy, which arrives in a little under a month. The single Nothing is Enough is a stirring and exemplary slice of indie folk, that will no doubt send a lot of people looking into his earlier material. While you may have to wait just a little while longer for more, the good news is that the new album looks to have its official release in a little under a month on 3rd November 2014 via Pledge Music.
David will be on tour performing shows across the UK to coincide with the release of Journal of a Journey Buoy, which you can check out the dates for here. In addition, make sure to check out the embed below of his excellent video for Kingdom from last years album, Dreamoirs.

Today’s Dose is a single from the Vaudevellia collection by San Diego based Meniyka Kiravell, and is due to be released Oct 15, 2014.
“Soaking up influences from around the world, Kiravell poured out 9 individual musical pieces of art into an eclectic collection entitled Vaudevellia. These are all released under the name, Kiravell. The songs embody the serene exploration of jazz mixed with world music and indie rock. The cover art for each single is a sketched self-portrait set atop a variable palette of mixed colors and backdrops.” [bio]
This week’s music was submitted by the artists. Theme song from Dan at DanOSongs.com.
