Video Premiere: Anthony Atkinson & The Running Mates – Calm & Collected

Australian Anthony Atkinson & The Running Mates are about to release a new album Broken Folks on October 17th and I’m honored to premiere their brand new music video for the song Calm & Collected. Anthony Atkinson is a big favourite of mine and we go way back. Well actually I’ve never met the guy, but I’ve spent hours and hours listening to the magnificent …

Matt Paxton, Wes Tirey & J.E. Sunde

I’ve been following Canadian singer-songwriter Matt Paxton after I bought his 2011 release How the Land Lies and fell in love with it. Ok, this happened something like 8-9 months ago, so our relationship is fairly new, but I really love that record, I still have it on the iPod and listen to quite often. The new Matt Paxton release Mountain Eyes EP came out …

Sister Flo – Tragician’s Hat (Anniversary Edition)

Maybe I’ve been writing this blog far too long, because record labels are already starting to reissue the ones that I covered and loved during the early days of One Chord to Another. Soliti couldn’t have picked a better one to reissue though, so I’m glad they are reissuing Tragician’s Hat and I’m more than happy to feature it again. After all, Sister Flo’s Tragician’s …

Bahamas – Bahamas is Afie

Finnish-Canadian Afie Jurvanen aka Bahamas just released a new album a couple of weeks ago. This new one is called Bahamas is Afie and just like everything he has released before, it sounds magnificent to me. The man has the sweetest voice and is so good at creating songs that might seem small, but still make a huge lasting impression. I’m especially loving the beginning …

Ochre Room – Cabin Sessions

This is something really special. The finest Finnish band perfectly captured on film. Ochre Room – Cabin Sessions was directed, shot and edited by Sami Pöyry (Monadi-filmi). Somewhere between a live session and a short film says the press release and that sums it up nicely. I did add the embed code below, but please do visit the vimeo link or hit full screen, because …

Spencer Burton, Christopher Denny, J. E. Sunde

I have never properly listened to Canadian indie rock band called Attack In Black. I think I probably should, because I seem to love everything the band members have done since then. If you are a regular reader of this blog, you are well aware that I’m a huge fan of both Daniel Romano and Ian Kehoe (the man behind Marine Dreams). They both played …

Lac Belot – Elizabeth EP

Something rather special came out today. A few weeks ago I received an email that introduced Lac Belot to me. I didn’t know Jarno Takkumäki (the man behind Lac Belot) beforehand, but I was hooked like five seconds after I had pushed the play button. The song in question was the title track Elizabeth from Lac Belot’s debut EP. Further studies showed that the whole …

Freschard & Stanley Brinks

As previously mentioned, my biggest musical obsession this summer has been Freschard. Cheese and crackers anyone. I don’t even like Cheese and Crackers, but Freschard still makes me want to buy them anyway. So freakin’ addictive stuff. I have her albums Boom Biddy Boom and Shh… and I could listen to them all day long. I really love to walk around the town and just …

Nathan K. – Methodist Girls

I’m still way behind and have a lot of good summer releases to go through. One of them is Methodist Girls by Nathan K. Nathan K is a folk singer-songwriter from Michigan and this new album came out a month ago. Methodist Girls has gotten a lot of air time on my iPod during the summer. It has been rather magnificent dreamy indie folk for …
