Jon Garcia. The Lake

Diving into this lake is an exhilarating experience. There are deep waters and strange currents that pull the listener under the surface, almost drowning but certainly enveloped in an almost dream like aquamarine state of mind (if such a thing exists). This is baroque pop with horns, woodwind and strings decorating a very strong set of songs that are melodic in the extreme as Garcia’s handsome vocals dominate proceedings.

Garcia is a 27 year old musician and filmmaker who moved from Austin… Continue

New Friends - The Kilborn Alley Blues Band





So tonight, I was thinking about how to write today's post about a new group (to me) The Kilborn Alley Blues Band and the album that I listened to first this Blues Wednesday Better Off Now and I thought, what do I like in a blues band. Well, you need a good strong guitar see Stevie Ray, Corey… Continue

New Monsoon - Live at Hopmonk Tavern





Ok, so a while back I discovered that I liked Jam Bands! I had always shied away from that music because I never really liked Phish (actually didn't listen a lot - they started in 1983 and they mostly played during my lost years of music) and wasn't that big on the Dead. But one day I found the JamOn station on XM Radio and found I liked what I was listening to. I tend to like the blues based bands like Gov't Mule, Hill Country Revue and the North Mississippi All Stars.… Continue

Jason Isbell And The 400 Unit (Album of the same name)

www.jasonisbell.comI've had this album kicking around a few weeks now, and it just keeps finding its way back on to the player. It was actually released in 2009, so I'm behind the times on this one, but they're playing in Kilkenny next weekend and if I could be there I would.



Jason Isbell was in the Drive-by Truckers for some years, and you can hear that in the sound of this new… Continue

Eric Bibb - Booker's Guitar



Ok so, Eric Bibb is another of those artists who music I don't have in my library simply because, say it with me now! there's too much music - too little time! Generally. I don't listen to a lot of acoustic blues no Keb' Mo' or Reverend Gary Davis in my library, there is however, Mississippi John Hurt, Brownie McGhee and Sonny Terry and one of my favorite Bill Morrissey album's is Songs of… Continue

Kingsley Flood "Dust Windows"



I'm trying to nail why I like this album, on first listen I didn't "get it", but was intrigued enough to go for round two immediately, then three and four, it's kind of addictive - the way it jumps around mixing up the styles maybe, the sharp sometimes off-kilter lyrics perhaps, whatever it is this Boston five-piece have produced a cracker of a début,… Continue

WILLIE NELSON —COUNTRY MUSIC (Rounder)

www.rounder.com

Though a huge fan of Willie Nelson I don’t necessarily like all that he does. He can way too eclectic even for my taste but this time he has come up trumps —big time. So hot is this album I rate it as Willie’s best straight country album since the 1970s and counting.



He delves back in time and pulling out such old chestnuts as ‘Man With The Blues’, Ernest Tubb ‘Seaman’s Blues’ and… Continue

MARK ERELLI - JEFFREY FOUCAULT —SEVEN CURSES (Continental Song City)

www.jeffreyfoucault.com www.markerelli.com

What a worthwhile and inspired concept album this is, and has them get off to a flyer as Foucault fresh from last year’s John Prine tribute records slots into the wonderful ‘Philadelphia Lawyer’ like he has been singing it all his life. He could well have been for all I know; as the standard for both acts to aim (and… Continue

volcano watch YES! KILKENNY FESTIVAL IS GOING AHEAD!



In answer to the thousands of phone calls at the festival office and the general concerns for over seas tours in general, we hear today at least, Kilkenny Festival report no cancelations.



All acts expect to make it to Kilkenny, they have had no cancellations so far. Some are already in Europe and, unless there is a deterioration in flying conditions, they expect everyone to make it to Kilkenny on time.

Viper Central: The Devil Sure Is Hard To Please

http://www.vipercentral.ca/

Well, I hadn't been listening to bluegrass/Appalachian music much recently but then, in the course of a few weeks, along come two albums to really freshen the appetite. First there was the Carolina Chocolate Drops and now there's Vancouver's Viper Central. Silly name, I know, but I believe they claim they were drunk at the time.



Anyway,… Continue

Thanks from Mike McLeod and Chelsea Kendrick

Wow, thanks for featuring our song Betcha Didn't Know. this is our first piece that might be properly considered in the Americana genre. but for some reason, our writing is heading more in that direction. lots more to come.

Texas Tornados: Esta Bueno!

http://thetexastornados.com/

Short history lesson for those, like me, who know nada of the Tornados. Founded in the 1990s as a Tex-Mex supergroup, the Tornados were renowned for cheerfully mixing up rock'nroll with Mexican styles, singing in Spanglish ( i.e. sometimes both languages in the same song, sometimes not quite either) and having a barrel of fun along the way. The star names… Continue

JOE ELY —DOWN ON THE DRAG / LIVE SHOTS (BGO Records)

www.bgo-records.com

Another two-offer from BGO featuring the music of Texan Joe Ely from his days with MCA and that feature a number of songs from fellow Flatlander Butch Hancock to go with a healthy portion of his own.

Down On The Drag and Live Shots were recorded in 1979 and 1980, respectively, and demonstrate a more rocky side of Ely’s music. Feature his road band in both cases (Lloyd… Continue
