Jon Latham – Lifers (new song + indiegogo project)

There’s so much good new music out there right now and so little time to write this blog. A lot of great stuff has come out during the past two weeks. There’s new albums from John Calvin Abney, Kirty, M.Lockwood Porter, Tom Brosseau etc. I try to get to those current favourites sometime soon-ish, but this blog entry is mostly about future greatness.
Nashville-based singer-songwriter …

Ryan Allen and His Extra Arms – Basement Punk

I don’t follow power pop or whatever you want to call that melodic heaven with power chords, catchy hooks and harmony vocals nowhere near as much as I did 10 or 15 years ago. That’s kind of a sad, because that’s still and forever will be the foundation of my music taste. Maybe I had a little melodic overdose too somewhere along the way, because …

M. Lockwood Porter – How To Dream Again

M. Lockwood Porter from Berkeley, CA released his new album How To Dream Again a couple of weeks ago and it has been in heavy rotation ever since. The earlier albums Judah’s Gone (2013) and 27 (2014) were already rather convincing efforts and How To Dream Again takes this thing one step further. Besides still being a great blend of a large amount of first-class …

Kirty – Kirty

Kirty is a Toronto-based singer-songwriter and her new self-titled album came out on 23rd of September on Postwar Records. I found her 2012 album a year or two ago and I really liked what I heard. I never ended up buying a copy, because there was always so much new stuff to buy and I don’t have the money to buy everything I desire. However, …

Tuns – Tuns

I think I have to live up to that pop part of the subtitle every now and then. Lately Canadian supergroup Tuns have been in charge of giving me the heavy dose of pop melodies that I need in order to function as a living being (and Teenage Fanclub too of course). Tuns are Chris Murphy (Sloan), Matt Murphy (Super Friendz, The Flashing Lights), Mike …

Kuparilinna – Kuparilinna

Lately I’ve been very fond of this self-titled debut album by Kuparilinna. I’m a little ashamed that it took me until that Flavour of the Month concert the other week to get to know their music, because it’s fair to say that the whole idea of this blog was (and still should be) to tell the world or the few regular readers about such an …

Bonnie Whitmore – Fighter

The song Fighter from the forthcoming Bonnie Whitmore album Fuck With Sad Girls that is due out 28th of October has been a big favourite in this household during the past week. This and the earlier outtake She’s a Hurricane are both gorgeous and I have really high hopes for the album. I’ll get back to this closer to the release date, but here’s the …

The Needy Sons – Vis-A-Vis

I thought I should also share some new music that I love on this so called blog birthday (ok, it’s past midnight already so I’m a little late), because that’s what this blog is all about. Besides The Needy Sons fits quite well to this little 15 years celebration, because Bill Janovitz’s other band Buffalo Tom was quite a big thing to me around the …

Onechord.net strikes 15 today: Viljami Kukkonen – Mörönsyötti

One Chord to Another is now 15 years old. Huge thanks for everyone who has been with me on this little journey through music. No matter whether you’ve red this blog the full 15 years or just browsed through a couple of post somewhere along the way. It means a lot to me that you’ve visited this and it makes the countless amount of hours …

Onechord.net turns 15: Andy Shauf – Wendell Walker

Wendell Walker was the first Andy Shauf song I heard back in 2013. It instantly grabbed me and haven’t let go over the years. Back then I wrote that “I’m almost scared to find out more, because how can anything live up to this”. Well apparently it did, because Andy’s 2016 album The Party has been sitting on that album of the month slot for …

Wesley Randolph Eader – Highway Winds

I’ve lived the past couple of days under the guidance of the new Wesley Randolph Eader album Highway Winds. It’s been a good place to be, because this is rather spectacular songwriting. I think I’ll stick around here for a while and make this my home.
Wesley Randolph Eader is a Portland-based country-folk songwriter and Highway Winds is his second album. I completely missed the …
