When I picked this up I realised I’d been away from Country for quite a while.  Too long as it turns out.  I needed a kick of something different.  I’ve got the same levels of lyrical heartbreak and heartache, less queer and feminist protest.  But I’ve traded noise, rage, hush, understatement, for harmonies and hooks …

INVOKING the righteous bluegrassy, feminine country strength of a fine line of songwriters that stretch back through First Aid Kit and Shelby Lynne, and right on back to Dolly back herself, Scottish country chanteuse Rianne Downey is back and proud with her strumsomely lovely new single, “Do Or Die”, in which she moves on from …

WITH their debut album, Water, out now on Suicide Squeeze, Los Angeles’ SadGirl are inviting you to come join them in a world of intimate, no-messin’, old-school country, like it used to be; you just need an acoustic guitar, a microphone, plenty, plenty of reverb and a way with a tune. Maybe a broken heart, …

COMING atcha outta Richmond, Virginia, EggHunt Records is sure to be blowin’ up big time in an old skool, proper country music way when latest signing Sara Bug’s album drops at the end of next week; ahead of which the singer, who goes by her family nickname due to her diminutive stature, has dropped a …

It’s as if our very own Dolly P had got her …

Nashville-based Californian native, Corinne Cook, has just released light-hearted country single “Turning Off The World“, from her “Dressed Up For Goodbye” album. I think everyone at some point wishes they had the ability to press a virtual pause or mute button to just stop the noise and nonsense around them and get a rest from …

COMIN’ atcha from the state that likes to think of itself as The Native America, Oklahoma, Anne Reburn grew up singing, dancing and playing the piano from a young age. Her music is filled with the verve and excitement that comes from such an early joy, never lost. Her latest single drop, “Everywhere And Nowhere” …

TEXAS TWOSOME Tele Novella, who memorably describe themselves on Twitter as “coin-operated medieval pop songs through a 1950s western lens” (and that’s totally on the money) have today released a third track and accompanying romantic Super 8 film from their forthcoming February album, Merlynn Belle. We’ve taken in both of the two preceding singles: the …
