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 …

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 …

Nopat, Pöllöt & Satan’s Fingers

Some fantastic Finnish music for a change. Sometimes I forget that this is a Finnish pop site and not a fan site for fairly unknown North American folk singer-songwriters. These days it should be a bit of both.

First we have major news on the One Chord to Another scale. There’s a new Nopat album hitting the stores and our hearts in early September. This most …

Bob Stanley: Yeah Yeah Yeah and Croydon Municipal

I have never been the biggest Saint Etienne fan. I do have the first three albums and I do like them. Especially the album So Tough and the song Hobart Paving. Still as a band, it has never been that important to me. However, Bob Stanley as a compiler, writer and a music fan has been very important to me personally. He certainly is one …
