The Burning Hell / My Name Is Mathias

I’ve had a huge hole in my pop music education. I haven’t really properly listened to The Burning Hell until now. That’s rather criminal especially if you consider the facts that a) I love Canadian music b) they played in my hometown Turku a year or two ago and I managed to miss them. Anyway, for the past two days I’ve been finally listening to …

Hayward Williams – The Reef, John Statz new single + album kickstarter

I teamed up a couple of albums produced by the great Jeffrey Foucault on this little blog entry (and these guys are also all originally from Wisconsin if I’m not mistaken). First we have Hayward Williams from Milwaukee and his new full-length The Reef that just came out. I fell in love with Hayward’s song Cotton Bell many moons ago, but haven’t been the most …

Heartjet – Friend (single)

Power pop is something very dear to me and therefore I’ve been folllowing the adventures of Finnish power pop band Heartjet from the beginning. I got some rather splendid news a week or two ago when the duo announced that they will be releasing their debut full-length next spring. This excellent first single Friend from the forthcoming album is already out and available on their …

Barna Howard & Myriam Gendron

Just a quick blog entry before going to bed, because every now and then one has to praise Barna Howard. He is one of the best folk singer-songwriters these days or any other days for that matter. Why isn’t Barna Howard already famous is one of life’s greatest mysteries. I was just listening to his debut album and I’m still loving it so passionately. It …

M. Lockwood Porter – 27 & John Moreland’s Pledge campaign

M. Lockwood Porter is a songwriter from Berkeley, CA (originally from Oklahoma). His second album 27 has been out since mid-October and I’ve had it on heavy rotation ever since. There’s definitely some versatility here that I like a lot. 27 contains achingly beautiful americana songs, impressive 70s influenced folk rock tunes, damn enjoyable replacement rockers and so on and pretty much everything works. …

Album of the Month: Frontier Ruckus – Sitcom Afterlife

Michigan’s Frontier Ruckus is pretty much the best band in the world right now. I joined the party rather late maybe a couple of years ago and when the previous album Eternity of Dimming came out in early 2013, they completely won my heart over. I kept on listening to that wonderful thing throughout the year and it was clearly my favourite album of that …

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 …
