“Play loud and whilst intoxicated” is the request on the sleeve. So I did, and, what do you know? There’s something pretty irresistible about Robert James Selby’s first recorded collection of songs, a naïve enthusiasm and sense of fun that carries all before it.

This is Irishman Marc O’Reilly’s debut album and it has already made waves for him outside his home country. One man and his acoustic guitar is what he does, a folk singer of rare intensity with a blues-infused guitar technique that has to be witnessed (via youtube in my case) to believe that really is just one instrument that you’re hearing. He does that intense busy-ness on the guitar that I’ve heard other people do, making a wall of sound that just blasts out at you, but it’s…Continue

The Mystix, a blues/roots outfit from Boston (USA), have been giving this new album of theirs a big push but the sales pitch about them honouring American musical traditions didn’t do much to stir my enthusiasm. To be…Continue

Well I haven’t heard all of Charlie Roth’s previous six albums, but I suspect that Cactus Tartan Heart is his best work yet. Inspired by his recent troubadour travels around the British Isles, Charlie seems to have distilled his own particular melange of Celtic, country and folk music into something that touches…Continue
