Oh my how pretty!
This month MOJO have a free cover CD called ‘Rumours Revisited’, which is the entirety of Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours album recorded by new artists. It includes something which I expect will be rather beautiful, such as The Staves singing Songbird. But one you can hear without purchasing the album is this rather good version of Gold Dust Woman by Julia Holter. What a wonderful interpretation.
Taken from Caitlin’s new record ‘The Stand-In’ which will be released on February 25th 2013. Very excited about her return!
Big new sounds from Big Deal.
A very beautiful song from 23-year-old Winston Yellen, aka Night Beds. His voice is so resonant. I look forward to seeing what else he has in store for us. He plays is playing a couple of London dates in a few weeks which are…
28th Nov- The Lexington w Wild Nothing
3rd Dec- Shepherds Bush Empire w Sharon Van Etten
4th Dec- The Slaughtered Lamb (headline show)
A new single from Wolf Alice. It’s excellent. The band head out on tour with PEACE for a couple of dates at the end of the month.
This is so beautiful I want to cry. The gorgeous new sounds of Anna Lena & the Orchids who I featured as a New Treat at the beginning of the year. The track’s melodies are rich and haunting and varied, in places Sharon Van Etten comparisons could be made. The production of the track is perfect and the choice of instrumentation adds to the haunting sounds of the track. Anna Lenas voice swoops beautifully above the building backing band and at the end you are left with something you just have to repeat.
This is by far the best track so far released by Anna Lena & the Orchids and is the first single to be taken from the upcoming EP which will be released in February of next year.
A lovely, lovely new track from Greta Isaac. This song has more layers of instrumentation than her previous recordings and more of an Americana country-swaying which is lovely and is showing she is separating herself from the mass of British folk singers who are all compared to Laura Marling. Above is a lovely photo which was taken of Greta performing at my Summer Series gigs this past August.
