John Davey – Living Is Trying & Hezekiah Jones Pledge campaign

I’m still here. I’ve just been trying to cut down the time I spent on a computer, because I’ve had some rather unpleasant headaches and neck aches for the past couple of months. It looks like I’m not young anymore and the combination of doing exactly the same kind of manual labour each day and spending a lot of the free time online has not …

Matt Paxton, Wes Tirey & J.E. Sunde

I’ve been following Canadian singer-songwriter Matt Paxton after I bought his 2011 release How the Land Lies and fell in love with it. Ok, this happened something like 8-9 months ago, so our relationship is fairly new, but I really love that record, I still have it on the iPod and listen to quite often. The new Matt Paxton release Mountain Eyes EP came out …

Video of the Day #152: Freschard

A new Freschard music video surfaced yesterday. The song is Investigate from her fabulous album Boom Biddy Boom. If you are dedicated follower of onechord.net (not sure if there are any), you’ve heard this song here before. I’ve had huge Freschard crush going on since spring and I still love her records Boom Biddy Boom and Shh.. I haven’t gone further back in her discography …

One Chord to Another turns 13!

One year to another. 13 strikes, but I’m not out yet. Maybe when 23 strikes. Or maybe more like 13 down and maybe 2 to go. We’ll see. 13th birthday is not a cause for a huge celebration. Let’s leave that for the 15th anniversary. But I think it’s still worth mentioning. Unfortunately this last year probably wasn’t the highlight of onechord.net. I’ve been rather …

Video of the Day #151: Withered Hand

Withered Hand has a new music video for the song Black Tambourine. The song is an excellent outtake from the latest Withered Hand album New Gods that came out early in the year on Fortuna POP! / Slumberland. That guy on the video definitely looks exactly like Dan Willson and a cat makes a cameo appearance. What’s not to love. This is Withered Hand and …

Sister Flo – Tragician’s Hat (Anniversary Edition)

Maybe I’ve been writing this blog far too long, because record labels are already starting to reissue the ones that I covered and loved during the early days of One Chord to Another. Soliti couldn’t have picked a better one to reissue though, so I’m glad they are reissuing Tragician’s Hat and I’m more than happy to feature it again. After all, Sister Flo’s Tragician’s …

The Weather Station, Michael Feuerstack & Community Theatre

Sometimes it feels like that perhaps this should be called Canadian pop site and not a Finnish pop site, because these days a huge amount of my favourite bands are Canadian. We are stuck in Canada once again, because great things keep on happening on a daily basis.
Today one of my favourite labels You’ve Changed Records announced that they will release a new The Weather …

Bahamas – Bahamas is Afie

Finnish-Canadian Afie Jurvanen aka Bahamas just released a new album a couple of weeks ago. This new one is called Bahamas is Afie and just like everything he has released before, it sounds magnificent to me. The man has the sweetest voice and is so good at creating songs that might seem small, but still make a huge lasting impression. I’m especially loving the beginning …

I did a couple of these playlists during the spring and then I just forgot the whole thing. Maybe it’s time do a few more. This one has another approach though and these are mostly new songs. Turner Cody might be 2013, others are 2014 I think. It’s not supposed be best of 2014 or anything. These are just some songs that I’ve loved during …
