Ariel Sharratt & Mathias Kom from The Burning Hell fame are getting ready to release a new duo album Never Work. It’s coming out on BB*Island on the 3rd of April and it will explore the future of work and work songs. The wonderful lead single and title track is out and available and it has been a perfect soundtrack for this winter vacation week I’m currently having. Listen to single below and pre-order from the BB*Island page.
I’m not usually able to keep up with the music news cycle, but for once I’m going to post the news of today. Christian Lee Hutson just announced that his long-waited new album Beginners comes out 29th of May on ANTI- Records. The announcement came with a brand new song and music video for album cut Lose this Number. I can’t wait to hear this one, because I really loved Northsiders last year and I Just Can’t Fucking Do It Anymore before it.
Another record that I’m excited to hear is the forthcoming debut album Yesterday Is Gone from Canadian folk songwriter Dana Gavanski. I really liked all the songs she released in 2019 and in early 2020 arrived this latest single Good Instead of Bad. And well this is a total homerun and makes sure I’m gonna write her name on my release calendar with a highlight and a small run of exclamation points. Yesterday Is Gone will be released by Full Time Hobby on the 27th of March. Here’s the latest single along with a music video of another album song called Catch.
Let’s wrap this little blog post with a special one that is already out and available. I stopped waiting for the follow-up to the great A Girl Called Eddy debut a long time ago. That beautiful album came out in 2004 (I think I bought my copy a year or two later), but what a lovely surprise it was to get a brand new A Girl Called Eddy album Been Around in 2020. I’ve only touched the surface of the album so far and just gave it a first full and proper spin tonight. However, it’s already quite clear that Erin Moran still has it and she has created a beautiful classic soulful pop album. Here’s a couple of early favorites, the lyric video for the title track and another wonderful album cut Jody. Been Around is now out and available on the legendary Spanish pop label Elefant.
