The Sumner Brothers: The Hell In Your Mind

https://thesumnerbrothers.bandcamp.com/album/the-hell-in-your-mind

It’s such a good feeling to find a new band to get excited about and, for me, Vancouver’s Sumner Brothers offer plenty to get excited about. The Hell In Your Mind is something like their sixth album and apparently…

Adam Klein Archer’s Arrow

http://www.adam-klein.com/

It was 2013 and, out of nowhere it seemed, Adam Klein produced what became my favourite album of the year – Sky Blue De Ville. Deeply romantic, beautifully produced and boasting some great guitar work, it was an album to lose yourself in, a thread to follow from beginning to end and be glad that…

Lachlan Bryan and The Wildes: Black Coffee

http://lachlanbryan.com/

              After a successful solo outing, Aussie country singer Lachlan Bryan got his old band back into the studio and came up with this cracker of an album. It was released in the autumn of last year in Australia and subsequently picked up a major award as “Alternative Country” album of the year.…

Matt Andersen: Weightless

http://www.stubbyfingers.ca/

         New Brunswick blues/rock man Matt Andersen is back with a new album. A great guitarist, he’s even more notable as a vocalist, a natural heir to the likes of Joe Cocker. Teaming up with producer Steve Berlin at The Sonic Temple studio…

Gunther Brown: Good Nights For Daydreams

http://www.guntherbrown.com/

      Hailing from Portland, Maine, Gunther Brown are a four piece rock-based Americana band. Their debut album presents a pleasingly lo-fi rough and ready approach to their music that sounds refreshingly honest and straightforward. Songwriter and lead…

PJ Pacifico: Overlooking The Obvious

http://www.pjpacifico.com/

           PJ Pacifico, Connecticut-based singer-songwriter, has been over in the UK this week and will be back in July for a further push of his sweet, folk-based pop music. Actually, I’m with those who think that pop music is folk music; at its most trivial, it is disposable…

Krista Detor: Flat Earth Diary

http://www.kristadetor.com/index.php

           I was actually itching to play the previous Krista Detor album when this new one arrived in the post. There’s a unique quality to her music making, a combination of voice, imagery and piano-based arrangements that add…

The Code: The Code ep

Vincent McCallum, British born and Portugese raised, seems to have been playing and writing music all his life. He’s coming back to Britain for a wee tour in May, so here’s a six track ep from his Portugese band, The Code, to give a taste of what the man and his music are about.

The six songs here…

Eddi Reader: Vagabond

A new album from Eddi Reader, a celebration of song and of singing that is as wide and deep as you might expect from someone with a back catalogue like she has. Recorded in Glasgow just over a year ago and featuring musicians who were in town for Celtic Connections, Vagabond is imbued with a wonderfully relaxed air, the sound of musicians enjoying where the song takes them.

Above all, this is a fantastically eclectic collection of songs: traditional Gaelic, traditional Scots, modern gems… Continue

Peter Mulvey: Silver Ladder

http://petermulvey.com/

 

Peter Mulvey has been around the singer-songwriter/Americana scene for a long time now – there’s pushing on for 20 years worth of back catalogue – but he’s right to be particularly excited about this new release. Produced by Chuck Prophet, there’s a gritty rock edge to much of this…

Robby Hecht: Robby Hecht

http://robbyhecht.com/about/

 

Robby Hecht is as gentle a singer-songwriter as I can think of on the Americana scene.  His dedication to producing work of a precise and careful beauty puts him on an uncompromising path that will always limit his audience to those who…

W B Givens: Locomotion

http://wbgivens.com/epk

            I really like this debut album from Mississippi native W B Givens. Relocated to Nashville and having absorbed all the various strands that the broad church of American Country music has to offer, W B brings us a splendidly fresh synthesis of mountain,…

The Black Feathers: Strangers We Meet

http://theblackfeathers.com/

 

The Black Feathers could well be Britain’s answer to Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings - or possibly to The Indigo Girls, echoes of whom come strongly through at times. This hugely impressive five song debut sees them stepping confidently in their own direction with an evocative melding of British and…

Amelia White: Old Postcard

Ags Connelly: How About Now

http://agsconnolly.com/

            An extraordinarily accomplished country record for a debutant, it’s hard to believe that How About Now is a UK product. Ags Connolly hails from Oxfordshire and sounds – authentically – like he’s been drinking buddies forever with Waylon and Willie, Merle Haggard and…

Andy White: How Things Are

http://www.andywhite.com/

      So, Andy White, Belfast-born musician and poet, has gone through a marriage break-up and people ask him “How are things, Andy?”. This album is the answer. Cataloguing the hurt, the confusion, the doubts and the sadness of an awful period in his life he has somehow…

The O's: Thunderdog

Just coming to the end of their latest British tour (Colston Hall, Hammersmith Apollo – the venues are getting bigger) The O’s are back with their third album, recorded at the Sonic Ranch Studio in Texas. It’s more of the same, really, from lovable scamps…

The Red Pine Timber Company: Different Lonesome

http://www.redpinetimberco.com/

 So, Gavin JD Munro, songwriter-in-chief for the late, lamented Southpaw, has got himself a new band. It’s a large band, too: nine musicians make up The Red Pine Timber Company and something like twice that many make guest appearances on this new…

The New Madrids: Through the Heart of Town

http://www.thenewmadrids.com/index.html

 

Once upon a time, there was an Americana band from Perth (Scotland) called Southpaw. As far as I’m aware they only had one album, but it was a real goodie:  Buffalo Mansions is still a favourite in this house eight years later, packed…

Shinyribs: Gulf Coast Museum

http://www.shinyribs.org/

               Kevin Russell already has one band of note in the shape of The Gourds, longtime favourites of the Americana scene. It seems his side project, Shinyribs, could be even bigger news on the back of their second album with its infectious blend of Gulf Coast sounds and sweet soul music. The soul…
