A busy day ahead, but first I’ll make one of these little blog entries. Today the story begins from Bloomington, Indiana with the brand new Mike Adams At His Honest Weight single/video Do You One Better. The advance singles have all been great melodic pop treasures and therefore I have high expectations for the new album There Is No Feeling Better that will be released this Friday 14th of June by Joyful Noise Recordings.
For the rest of this post, we stay in Texas. I’m not 100% sure, but I think Denton is the more precise location for all of the rest. First up is the new Teal Moss album Dewy that came out on the 3rd of May. I came across this after I got an email notification about a new Brack Cantrell single from Bandcamp (see next entry) and after that I did some google searching of what’s going ahn in the Denton scene and found this lovely record that he co-produced. Teal Moss is an awesome new music project of Steven Fischer from the US Presidents that I’ve featured a few times on the weekly playlists. Here’s the lovely soft rock single/video of the lead single Lewis that also features a super cute dog. So what’s not to love.
And not so surprisingly the next entry for today is the new Brack Cantrell single Blissful Blues. I’ve been following his work since his 2015 solo album Glancing Glow and finally there’s a new album on the horizon. Blissful Blues is the lead single from his forthcoming album Famine or Feast that is coming out in the summer of 2019 and it’s pretty damn great. I thought I had checked if it was on Spotify too for the weekly playlist, but maybe I didn’t because it sure is there now. Well it goes on to the next playlist and meanwhile you can listen to beautiful single below.
And even less surprisingly due to the Denton, TX connection, I’ll close this little blog entry with a song from the latest Daniel Markham EP In Space that came out in February. Kind of criminal that it has taken me this long to feature a song from this one outside the weekly playlist. Here’s the gorgeous ending song Crickets that shows a slightly different side of Daniel Markham.
Four Arms to Hold You is an ongoing feature with a weird name. It might not contain a whole lot of words, but it does contain a whole lot of love towards the featured songs. Basicly this is just four albums / songs / artists that have done their part in holding me together and therefore I want to tell the world or the seven readers of this blog how much I love them. Not entirely sure do these kind of posts serve any kind of purpose and I do hope I manage to write longer posts too. Right now it just feels like the playlists and these kind of short posts are the only way to keep this dear hobby alive. Plus it’s really the music that matters, not my random ramblings and these posts will always contain magical music.
