Matthew Milia, Libby DeCamp, Evan Cheadle and The Deep Dark Woods

Another quick round up of musical things that I’ve loved during the recent weeks. First a major release alert from Detroit, Michigan. Like I already mentioned on the new music weekly, there’s a new Matthew Milia album on the horizon. That’s a big deal for me, because I have deep love for both Frontier Ruckus and solo Matthew Milia. He is probably my favorite songwriter of the past decade or so and I can’t wait to make my heart a home for the new album. Keego Harbor will be released on 16th of July, but you can already listen to the wonderful opening track Salad Bars at Bandcamp. Pre-order is up on his website for LP/CD/Photobook and Bandcamp for digital.

Staying in Detroit for a great record that is already out and available. I think I first discovered folk singer-songwriter Libby DeCamp thanks to a GemsOnVHS video a few years back and I have been following her since on different platforms. Her debut full-length Westward and Faster came out on the 21st of May and contains exceptional songwriting and various shades of roots music. Such a great record.

Moving across the border to Canada. Victoria, British Columbia to be more precise. A long time favorite Evan Cheadle released his new timeless beauty Fault Like Serenade on the 11th of June. Here’s one of my personal favorites Ice Water from this enchanting album. I think I actually need Ice Water on multiple levels during this current heatwave.

Almost too logical next step is to wrap up this little blog entry with a song or two from the magnificent new The Deep Dark Woods album Changing Faces that came out 14th of May on Six Shooter Recordings. After all, Evan Cheadle has played a big part in The Deep Dark Woods during the recent years. The creative force and songwriter extraordinaire of the band is Ryan Boldt who has again created a captivating collection of songs. Here’s one of the standouts with a deeply moving music video and gentle nod to Thompson.
