Kalispell – Printer’s Son (new album June 3rd)

Here’s another shout out of great things to come this summer. Kalispell’s wonderful album Printer’s Son will finally see the light of the day thanks to Cartouche Records. I backed the Kickstarter project so I got the digital copy sometime last year and absolutely fell in love with the album. It would have been in my top 10 for the year, but I asked Shane …

Frederick Squire – Spooky Action at a Distance (new album May 27)

There’s not enough talk about the greatness of Canadian songwriter Frederick Squire. At least not in this corner of the world where I reside. I think his albums March 12 (2010 release) and Sings Shenandoah and Other Popular Hits (2011) are both amazing. I was late to this party though and only acquired them some years later. Probably haven’t even written about them because of …

Jake Nicoll – Two Things & Half Of Nothing

Jake Nicoll plays the drums for my big favourite The Burning Hell, but apparently he is also a great songwriter. He recently released a double album Two Things / Half Of Nothing. I’m still in the stage of processing all that beauty that these albums injected into my heart, but I’m definitely impressed about this all. It’s not an easy task to make an epic …

Hallelujah The Hills – A Band Is Something To Figure Out

Hallelujah The Hills from Boston, MA dropped their new album A Band Is Something To Figure Out into our laps yesterday on the 12th of April. I really loved the previous one Have You Ever Done Something Evil?, which is one of the finest American indie rock albums of the past few years. Perhaps this new one hasn’t reached that ridiculously high level yet in …

Daniel Markham – Disintegrator (coming out 6th of May)

Major news if you ask me. Daniel Markham will release his new album Disintegrator on 6th of May. The regular readers of this little blog/website are well aware that I absolutely love the previous Daniel Markham album Pretty Bitchin’. It’s one of my favourite albums of this current decade. Needless to say that I’m extremely excited that there will be follow-up in a few weeks …

Suomen Zorro – Hölmö humalainen Maria

Suomen Zorro released a new single from their forthcoming debut album on 1st of April. My apologizes that it took me so long to write about this one. Life has been busy with the hockey playoffs and Richmond Fontaine concerts etc . The few regular readers are probably well aware that I love all things Vähäsarja and this new song isn’t an exception. He definitely …

Eric Bachmann – Eric Bachmann

I spent the week mostly listening to Richmond Fontaine, because they were touring here (and played a spectacular concert, definitely among my all time faves despite some disturbances from thrash metal concert that took place upstairs). Therefore I didn’t have much time to listen to other new music before this weekend.
My favourite album of the weekend has been the new Eric Bachmann album. I’ve been …

Fernando – White Trees (video)

Fernando Viciconte is currently on a European tour and will be the opening act on Richmond Fontaine’s Finnish dates this week. That’s a mighty good reason to post this excellent new music video White Trees. It’s an outtake from his latest album Leave the Radio On that is out now on Decor / Fluff & Gravy.

And do not miss these concerts. Fernando is currently …

Robbie Fulks – Upland Stories

1st of April was a pretty great day for music and bad one for my bank account. Robbie Fulks, The Burning Hell, Woodpigeon and Charles Bradley all released new albums. The first three are all very dear and important to me and my feelings towards Charles might soon reach the same level.
Me and Robbie, we go way back. I think I started listening to him …

Kyp Harness – Stoplight Moon

Canadian folk singer-songwriter Kyp Harness is widely respected among his peers, but way too unknown at least on this corner of the world where yours truly resides. Unfortunately his song vault isn’t my expertise either, because I’ve only been aware of him for a few years and I’m only familiar with the albums The Wrong Way and Can a Poor Man Get A Fair Trial? …

Steven James Adams – Ideas (video)

Back after a small Easter break. Watching hockey playoffs will take a lot of the spare time during the coming weeks, but I do have plans to write a lot of blog posts during this final year. Incredible amount of great releases have just been released or will be released during April. I need a 2nd job to buy everything I want and an extra …

Richmond Fontaine – New album and Finnish tour reminder

Richmond Fontaine’s new and final album You Can’t Go Back, If There’s Nothing To Go Back To is now out and available on Decor Records and Fluff and Gravy. I’ve only listened to it a few times, but it’s already safe to say that they are going out with a bang. The High Country was good, but perhaps a little too challenging for my limited …
