Hello all, an odd rambling show this week but the music is great with Come The Spring – 24, The Bombs – Howl, Little Brother Eli - Dreams, The Travis Waltons – Homewrecker, Emily Wolfe – Swoon, Nick Tann – Don’t (demo) taken form the album “Notes in the margin” available from my Music Glue site https://www.musicglue.com/nick-tann/
<<<<<<<Oh and my new video is there… on the left <<<<<<<<
Hello my darlings. The best pick of the latest crop of independent talent. Remember to make a comment on this page and on my spanky new video below. On with the music Dah Rhyl Gah Moor – Right Swipe, Kill For Eden – Kerosene, Ed Ling – Swimmers, XX_JTX_XX – Color, Nick Tann – Never Did Me Wrong (Demo)
This will keep you warm some hot tunes including a track from me that is just screaming out for collaborators SCREAMING! If you want to add a musical contribution you can listen to and download CRAZY on my Soundcloud page by clicking HERE
On with the rest of the show… First was Iris a good no nonsense guitar rock bacd doing what they should with a track called Candle. Mickey Carroll is the kind of guy you invite to dinner who turns up wearing spats and spend the evening winking at your wife! He is also a great blues musician with his own show on Youtube. His new track Slowtrain is just sublime.
Jumble Hole Clough – Cocoa Palace Keeper is like the kind of dream you have after taking prescription drugs, glorious! My Monthly Date – 21st what the Beasty Boys would have sounded like if they grew up in Guildford, easily listenable and instantly likeable. Old House Playground – Stardance Nick Drake channels Elvis singing to a Tarentino film score powerful and addictive!
I also posted this new video on the youtubes if you fancy it
Just like that, this weeks podcast and it’s a corker.
After a new track from me it’s my tip for 2015, powerful and evocative Little Brother Eli – Who Do You?, picking up where Eddie and the Hotrods left off and bringing it right up to date The Silver Bayonets – Schemes. If Peter Gabriel had stayed with Genesis and listened to a few Jacques Brel records he would have come up with something like the enigmatic Marvin B Naylor‘s new single Brief Encounter. My last two tracks Wolfe Sunday - Botany Bay (if Axle Rose had picked up an acoustic guitar and wrote folky punk songs) and ending with my number one and number 2 French punk band H.O.Z. and one of my favourite tracks from their album Ain’t Got No Woman. What a show!
Your best independent music mixtape all ready for the weekend.
This week I play the freshest sounds in the independent music spectrum kicking off with a demo version of my track Don’t then this list of lovlies “Billy Bragg meets Greenday” TC Folkpunk – I Overheard Someone Telling Me, followed by “A special kind of smooth” from Eddy Smith – Blood On Your Hands, the kind of rock we really need – an angry version of The Stranglers -Damn Vandals- Mad As Hell, the wonderful mix of Americana and Brit Pop- who would have thought it possible but Bombs - Wrong Side of The Road do it brilliantly, finishing with a kind of angry Kate Bush album track from the mighty Josephine and the Artizans – Let Me Go
All good nothing bad yes?
