Australian singer-songwriter Darren Hanlon has a new album entitled I Will Love You At All. I think it’s already out in Australia and in september Yep Roc will release it in the states. Darren Hanlon is a fantastic songwriter and I can fully recommend his whole back catalogue as well. This is a guy who can write a moving pop song about a kickstand or …

A whole lot of pop fun for a change. Thankfully I’m not totally lost in the country zone and pop music can still make me excited. First I “only” liked this, but after a couple of listenings I’m already loving it. It’s The Sugar Stems from Milwaukee and their debut album has just been released. I think I need to buy it..

Flavour Of The Month was a blast. Both bands were brilliant. Go and see them play, if you have a chance. Also looking forward to some kind of Petty Crimes release, because that gig was just so damn good. I’m not sure can you say the same about the DJ, but this is what I played:
The Gaslight Anthem: American Slang
Elvyn: Lotta Lies
The Fox Hunt: Good …

Justin Rutledge: The Early Widows (Six Shooter, 2010)
Canadian Justin Rutledge is one of my favourite country and folk troubadours and I’ve been following him since falling in love with his debut album some years ago. The Early Widows is his fourth album and it’s again utterly wonderful. I’m certainly still in love with that gentle, sensitive voice that makes me feel so good and comfortable. …

The Wynntown Marshals: Westerner (Charger Records, 2010)
Another reviewshine favourite of mine is The Wynntown Marshals from Edinburgh and they deliver high quality scottish americana and alt.country. After being addicted to scottish pop music and alt.country in general for the past ten years, The Wynntown Marshals often sounds oh so familiar.  Sometimes I think of records as my friends (just how sad is that) and I …

Chase Fifty Six: Allatoona Rising (Dirtleg, 2010)
Chase Fifty Six from Georgia is one of the best groups that I’ve found through Reviewshine. I was about halfway though the first song Mary Jane when I knew that I was going to like them. It just sounded like my kind of music and that certainly proved to be the case. A bit of rockin’ alt. country like …
