Molly Linen sitting on a beach

Shropshire-born, Glasgow-based singer-songwriter, Molly Linen, has just released her latest song – ‘A Lot To Give’ – on Johnny Lynch’s (aka Pictish Trail) Lost Map Records and you can get it now in all the usual places, including on Bandcamp. This is Linen’s third single, following ‘Away‘ and ‘When They Didn’t Care‘, which both featured …

Pictish Trail, the one man band of Johnny Lynch, release new EP – Dream Wall, on 1st April, featuring the title track (original and remix) plus three remixes of tracks from 2020’s Thumb World. The name was familiar, and I guess if Green Man 2020 had gone ahead, I would have seen him live, given …

Organ Morgan band photograph

The barrel piano comes to life and you’re immediately in a rural hostelry a 100 years ago, merrily drinking ale and listening to the music coming from the smartly dressed band on the tiny stage in the corner. The sound fights for attention through the smoke filled room and the noise of drunken revellers until …

Scottish singer-songwriter, Tommy Ashby has released his duet with Lydia Clowes, ‘Happy Just To Know’. It’s out via Wow & Flutter Records and is the first single from his new EP, ‘Lay Low’, which is out on 14th May. It’s an absolutely brilliant slice of life-affirming joy from start to finish and is that song …

Skullcrusher single photo shoot

If you were one of those who, like me, was totally mesmerised and enraptured by Helen Ballentine’s (aka Skullcrusher) gorgeous eponymous debut EP of last summer, then you will have been yearning for more ever since. Well, good news then, that the singer-songwriter has announced her next EP, entitled “Storm in Summer” and released its …

Swedish singer-songwriter, rambler and travelling tattoo artist, H.B. Nielsen, follows up 2020’s debut album “Grand Opening” with his new EP, “It’s Today Again” which is out today. It’s a delicious slice of Scandinavian-infused indie folk Americana and a great addition to the phenomenal ‘Nordicana’ scene that includes the likes of First Aid Kit, The Tallest …

Dre Danburry sat on a sofa with fire behind him.

Legendary American D.I.Y. folk-pop singer-songwriter (and barber shop owner) Drew Danburry has just released his latest single – “Song To Long” – a revived and re-recorded version of a song written and recorded in 2006 with collaborator Ian Aiello. It’s an interesting thought experiment. How many artists have partially written and half recorded songs that …

A first suprise for 2021 from a Vancouver-based indie-folk-rock project

Bear Paw carry with them an immediate uplift in their sound. A honky tonkier version of Dr. Dog, or a janglier and weirder Bright Eyes. More than affecting their sound with country dew and Ozarks humidity, the band takes a very natural approach to the bluegrass-meets-indie rock vibe of their sound. Nothing feels forced with …
