Canadian band Elvyn was a big favourite here at the onechord.net headquarters back in 2010. The Decline was and still is a wonderful pop album and received full five hearts on this little website. It has taken them a while to create the follow-up Valley of the Kilowatt Hour, but it looks like they are getting ready to release this thing into the wild. The first single is already out there. It’s called AM and you can listen to it on their website and download it for free at cdbaby.com.
A second song from the upcoming Vikesh Kapoor album The Ballad Of Willy Robbins surfaced last week and oh my.. If possible, Carry Me, Home is even more convincing then the earlier I Dreamt The Blues. Vikesh’s excellent record label Mama Bird Recording Co set up the pre-order for the forthcoming album yesterday. Early birds will get an autographed copy and a personal note from Vikesh. The Ballad Of Willy Robbins is due out on October 15th. This is the the new single Carry Me, Home.
Let’s stay in Portland, Oregon. Another favourite singer-songwriter Huck Notari has a new album out. This was the first time I participated on a Kickstarter project, because I’m a big fan of this criminally unknown songwriter. The new excellent album Huck Notari and The River album is now out and available. It might not have anything as amazing and out-of-this-world brilliant as his songs I Want To Win and Wall Around Your Heart on his previous album (I could write a novel about the greatness of those songs), but it’s another strong release for sure. Here’s Huck playing a song Old Dirt Road from the new album.
