Album of the Month: Cale Tyson – Cheater’s Wine EP

I haven’t selected album of the month since July I think, but I think it’s time because I seriously fell in love with Cale Tyson’s Cheater’s Wine. Actually Cheater’s Wine is an EP, but this is my blog and I can make up the rules as I go along. This is such a damn perfect slice of classic country music. Things are actually looking pretty …

Caleb Stine – Maybe God Is Lonely Too

I became a fan of singer-songwriter Caleb Stine when I heard his fifth album I Wasn’t Built For A Life Like This a couple of years ago. His sixth album Maybe God Is Lonely Too saw the light of the day in April, 2014. It was pretty difficult to find a copy of this peaceful and beautiful folk album. Actually I didn’t find one …

Video of the Day #153: Lac Belot

Just a quick video post today. I’ve been praising Lac Belot’s debut EP a few times already, but that doesn’t stop me from doing it one more time. There’s a good reason too, because now there’s a music video as well. It’s been out since early October, so it’s about time to post it to the blog as well. This is Lac Belot aka Jarno …

The Taste – Sea Legs EP & Sloan – Commonwealth

Some fabulous pop music this time around. Lately I’ve been really enjoying the new The Taste EP called Sea Legs. They are a Toronto-based pop group and the new EP came out last summer on Reel Cod Records (cassette or digital). I just got a digital copy last week and this has been my a big part of my soundtrack for the day job at …

Justin Townes Earle – Single Mothers & Cale Tyson – Cheater’s Wine EP

I suppose American singer-songwriter Justin Townes Earle doesn’t really need an introduction anymore. I don’t even really know why I’m writing this, because I try to focus on the smaller artists. Not that Justin Townes is that universally famous or anything like that. But in the very small niche that I’m covering, he is quite well-known at this point. But why shouldn’t I write, because …

Viljami Kukkonen, Skip Zone, Janne Laurila & Puumaja

I haven’t posted too much Finnish music this year. That’s rather criminal, because there’s a lot of marvellous stuff out there. Like these either new or fairly new singles that are all magnificent. Actually I should do another part sometime soon, because I can’t fit everything to this little blog entry

First we have something extremely exciting. The first outtake and music video from the forthcoming …

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 …
