Album of the Month – Daniel Markham – Disintegrator

Daniel Markham’s new album Disintegrator has been sitting on that Album of the Month slot for so long that it’s probably already time to choose the next one, which will probably The Party by Andy Shauf. First I need to praise this one a little bit. Disintegrator has been on heavy rotation for the past month and it’s among the finest releases of the year …

Brian Wright – Cafe Rooster Sessions Vol 1.

Brian Wright’s latest release (and a couple of older ones) Café Rooster Sessions Vol 1 is name-your-price deal over at Bandcamp. I’m not sure will the songs appear later in other shape or form, but I think they are gorgeous as they are. So it was a good decision to throw a few bucks in the jar and put these into the iPod. Brian Wright …

Mikko Joensuu – Amen 1

I never really got totally into Joensuu 1685. My loss I would assume, because a lot of folks whose taste I trust really loved them. I probably figure it all out in a few years and start shouting their name from the rooftops decade too late. It wouldn’t be the first time.
Moving on to 2016 and it’s time for Mikko Joensuu’s solo debut and first …

Hear the song below and then set up a camp outside the record store and wait for …

Hayes Carll – The Magic Kid (video)

One more for tonight, because I’m trying to catch up after not posting for a month. Hayes Carll dropped a new album Lovers and Leavers during that time. It doesn’t seem to be everyone’s cup of tea, but I really like it. The Magic Kid has become my favourite moment of the album and this beautiful music video probably played a little part in that …

Pony Bradshaw – Bad Teeth

I had extremely high hopes for the Pony Bradshaw album Bad Teeth, because the first outtake Josephine was/is a mighty fine candidate for the song of the year award. Bad Teeth is finally out and available at Bandcamp and it mostly fills my expectations. Ok, perhaps nothing else completely reach the same mountain high level of Josephine (Work comes close), but that would have been …

John Klemmensen and the Party

Lately I’ve spent my nights watching every John Klemmensen & The Party video I’ve been able to find. I ended up checking out his songs a week or two ago because of some old short Arliss Nancy tweet posted sometime last year and kind of instantly fell for this music. John Klemmensen is one incredible vocalist and often there’s a heavenly good female vocalist backing …

Bone Moon – Thresher

Bone Moon is the new moniker of Ochre Room frontman Lauri Myllymäki. He released the debut Bone Moon song/video Thresher on 20th of May and as expected it sounds absolutely magnificent. The start of this new adventure is very impressive and I’m so eager to hear more and see how this thing develops in the coming months and years. Ochre Room was very dear to …

Luke Bell – Sometimes (video)

American country singer-songwriter Luke Bell will release his self-titled album on 17th of June and I’m very eager to hear it, because I really enjoyed his previous one Don’t Mind If I Do that I bought from his Bandcamp a while back. Actually the only unfortunate thing about this new album is that some of these songs already appeared on Don’t Mind If I Do. …

Jon Latham – Yearbook Signatures (video)

Oh dear. It’s been a whole month since the last update. Sorry about that. I really should quit onechord.net before it just fades away, but I’m so stubborn that you’ll have to bear with me at least another six months or so. I’ve been listening and buying a lot of music though. Daniel Markham, Mikko Joensuu, The Posies, Kacy & Clayton, Pony Bradshaw, Sam Moss, …

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 …
