JESSE WINCHESTER LOVE FILLING STATION (Appleseed Recordings)

Oh, what have I done to deserve a ‘new’ record from Jesse Winchester? Love Filling Station is Winchester’s first album since ‘Gentlemen Of Leisure’ (1999) on Sugar Hill and only his third studio recording since 1981 and from the first note it sounds like it is something he does everyday and never tires off.… Continue

NICK LOWE —QUIET PLEASE.....(Proper records)

Spanning the years, 1974-2007 the 49-track twin-cd collection is aided by a DVD featuring seven rare videos and a live performance —that finds him and the band in outstanding form and, like with the CD selections the good ones just keep on coming. Lowe, if you like is a spiritual… Continue

JEFFREY FOUCAULT SHOOT THE MOON RIGHT BETWEEN THE EYES (Continental Song City )





Signature Sounds / Continental Song City



In recent times few acts have come to my attention any finer as all round acts than singer-songwriter, Jeffrey Foucault, and who not only writes a fine song but can play a bit too! Also, as this album with a sub-title of A Collection —Jeffrey Foucault Sings The Songs Of John Prine he is likewise a fine interpreter. John Prine fans would argue, and quite rightly, that no one can better or in most cases come near the… Continue

THE FLATLANDERS. HILLS AND VALLEYS (New West Records)



Made up of old friends, Texans Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Joe Ely and Butch Hancock with the help of among others, producer / multi-talented musician Lloyd Maines they once again come through with a fine album. Each act has a unique rough-hewn vocal style and a cutting edge that has remained strong. Added to this is their ability to tell a story in song in such a fashion to rank with the best —today or yesterday.

Since reforming a decade ago the boys have continued to plough… Continue

www.lucindawilliams.com

John (Biscuits and Gravy) Davy, Drew Nelson, "Dusty Road to Beulah Land" Review!

Drew Nelson: Dusty Road to Beulah Land (Waterbug WBG87)

www.drewnelson.com



Can it really be pushing four years since Immigrant Son came out? That first full album from Drew Nelson is still in my top five of the last decade and, glory be, 'Beulah Land' is at least as good and establishes Drew as a Michigan Guy Clark for his generation. Teaming up with Michael Crittenden again as producer, engineer and multi-instrumentalist… Continue

John (Biscuits and Gravy) Davy, Angie Palmer "Live Review" from The Riverside Connon Bridge Scotland!



Angie Palmer at The Riverside, Conon Bridge March 3rd, 2009

It's always nice to find a congenial venue to hear some live music and The Riverside's certainly that. Good beer, good atmosphere and a comfortable mezzanine area to sit around and listen, to Angie Palmer in this case. A Lancashire lass who's relocated to France, she turned up with one fifth of her full band, namely Billy Buckley. He picked out a seemingly endless run of inventive tunefulness on all things… Continue

Gurf Morlix —Last Exit Happyland

GURF MORLIX

LAST EXIT HAPPYLAND
www.gurfmorlix.com

When it comes to hard, gritty and richly coloured Americana few people create it better than Gurf Morlix, whether as a producer (Lucinda Williams, Slaid Cleaves, Ray Wylie Hubbard etc) or as a recording act.

Strong and uncompromising both as a musician and vocalist he obtains the most from the image strewn lyrics that other than two co-writes with George Carver (I Got… Continue

PHIL LEE: So Long, It's Been Good To Know You (Palookaville)



PHIL LEE: So Long, It's Been Good To Know You (Palookaville PAL08) www.phillee1.com

What is folk music, then? All acoustic? Traditional instruments? Traditional tunes/lyrics? Long hair/sandals/beard all compulsory? For myself I go with the notion that: 'as far as I know, it's only folks that make music'. I don't know where that quote comes from but it's lodged in my brain as a useful corrective for all those who are too precious… Continue

Mia Riddle Tumble and Drag

Here's new adventures in the enigmatic music of Mia Riddle, now released to download on Itunes. Not sounding like anyone else I'm aware of, Mia has a unique tension going on in her music, the fragility of her voice and the delicate precision of her lyrics being tugged taut by the steely drive of… Continue

I See Hawks in L.A. : Hallowed Ground

A successful band from the Californian country scene with a great live reputation, the Hawks are as down to earth - literally - as you could wish. How many other bands have ever sung a paean to fossilised ferns (Carbon Dated Love) or squeezed a line like 'The earth is a self-regulating organism' into a… Continue

Carrie Elkin "Jeopardy of Circumstance"

This album is an absoluite treasure trove of riches: the songs, the singing and the music all have complexities that take time to explore and offer new possibilities of appreciation and interpretation each time round. Broadly country in character, but not shackled by any genre constraints,… Continue
