Small Houses – New single Staggers and Rise and album pre-order

Small Houses announced new album a couple of days ago, set up a pre-order page and released the first single from the forthcoming album. This was by far the biggest and most exciting news of the week on the One Chord to Another scale, because Small Houses aka Jeremy Quentin is one of my favourite singer-songwriters these days. The album titled Still Talk; Second City …

Ryan Boldt – Broadside Ballads & Elephant Micah – Where in Our Woods

Canadian Ryan Boldt is about to release a solo album Broadside Ballads in late November. I’m thrilled to hear this one, because Ryan Boldt is the front man of one of my favourite groups, The Deep Dark Woods. I still count The Place I Left Behind by The Deep Dark Woods as my favourite international album of this current decade. That’s one amazing folk rock …

Daniel Markham – Pretty Bitchin’

Daniel Markham from Denton, TX released his new album Pretty Bitchin’ yesterday 31.10.2014 and I instantly fell in love with it. Damn it feels good to be so ridiculously excited about a new album. It’s early days, but I think this is going to be an album of the year contender here at onechord.net. I have a bit of flu at the moment and playing …

Album of the Month: Cale Tyson – Cheater’s Wine EP

I haven’t selected album of the month since July I think, but I think it’s time because I seriously fell in love with Cale Tyson’s Cheater’s Wine. Actually Cheater’s Wine is an EP, but this is my blog and I can make up the rules as I go along. This is such a damn perfect slice of classic country music. Things are actually looking pretty …

Video of the Day #153: Lac Belot

Just a quick video post today. I’ve been praising Lac Belot’s debut EP a few times already, but that doesn’t stop me from doing it one more time. There’s a good reason too, because now there’s a music video as well. It’s been out since early October, so it’s about time to post it to the blog as well. This is Lac Belot aka Jarno …

The Taste – Sea Legs EP & Sloan – Commonwealth

Some fabulous pop music this time around. Lately I’ve been really enjoying the new The Taste EP called Sea Legs. They are a Toronto-based pop group and the new EP came out last summer on Reel Cod Records (cassette or digital). I just got a digital copy last week and this has been my a big part of my soundtrack for the day job at …

Justin Townes Earle – Single Mothers & Cale Tyson – Cheater’s Wine EP

I suppose American singer-songwriter Justin Townes Earle doesn’t really need an introduction anymore. I don’t even really know why I’m writing this, because I try to focus on the smaller artists. Not that Justin Townes is that universally famous or anything like that. But in the very small niche that I’m covering, he is quite well-known at this point. But why shouldn’t I write, because …

Viljami Kukkonen, Skip Zone, Janne Laurila & Puumaja

I haven’t posted too much Finnish music this year. That’s rather criminal, because there’s a lot of marvellous stuff out there. Like these either new or fairly new singles that are all magnificent. Actually I should do another part sometime soon, because I can’t fit everything to this little blog entry

First we have something extremely exciting. The first outtake and music video from the forthcoming …

John Davey – Living Is Trying & Hezekiah Jones Pledge campaign

I’m still here. I’ve just been trying to cut down the time I spent on a computer, because I’ve had some rather unpleasant headaches and neck aches for the past couple of months. It looks like I’m not young anymore and the combination of doing exactly the same kind of manual labour each day and spending a lot of the free time online has not …

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 …
