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 …

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 …

The Souvenirs – I Ain’t Happy Yet

The Souvenirs album I Ain’t Happy Yet came out on 30th of August. I had been eagerly waiting for this one since I found them a few months ago. Corinne Gentry, Kiki Buehner, Marie Bradshaw aka The Souvenirs from Salt Lake City already sang their way into my heart on those magnificent albums by Jay William Henderson and Ryan Tanner and now their own album …
