Twain – LA / BMG (video)


I’ve red that there will be new Twain music coming up in the not-too-distant future. Oh well, I suppose even a day might feel like too distant in this case, because Twain aka Mt Davidson is so brilliant. While waiting for the new stuff, I recommend this incredibly lovely video that surfaced a year ago. I missed it back then and found it about a month ago, but now I’ve watched it more times than I can count. Which in the end might not be as much as you imagined, because my math skills are horrible, but I do love the song and the video.

Oh and I can’t leave this one out either. Here are The Deslondes + Twain singing Run Wild. Hopefully The Deslondes and Twain combo will hit Finnish shores someday.

Hayes Carll – The Magic Kid (video)


One more for tonight, because I’m trying to catch up after not posting for a month. Hayes Carll dropped a new album Lovers and Leavers during that time. It doesn’t seem to be everyone’s cup of tea, but I really like it. The Magic Kid has become my favourite moment of the album and this beautiful music video probably played a little part in that process. Sure I liked the song from the get-go, but this warmhearted video brought a joyful tear to my eye and added another layer to this tremendous and inspirational song. The song is actually about his own son Eli. This is The Magic Kid by Hayes Carll.

Jon Latham – Yearbook Signatures (video)


Oh dear. It’s been a whole month since the last update. Sorry about that. I really should quit before it just fades away, but I’m so stubborn that you’ll have to bear with me at least another six months or so. I’ve been listening and buying a lot of music though. Daniel Markham, Mikko Joensuu, The Posies, Kacy & Clayton, Pony Bradshaw, Sam Moss, Hayes Carll, PURSES, Adeline Hotel, Arliss Nancy, Lost Boots, Peter Bruntnell, Brian Wright (just to name a few) have all released something that already should have been featured on these pages.

Let’s put the ball rolling again by posting this excellent new song/video Yearbook Signatures from Jon Latham. It surfaced a couple of weeks ago on his sessions and it’s another magnificent song from this Nashville-based songwriter. His 2015 album Real Bad News is monstrously highly recommended. This new one is a wonderful song as a whole and then there’s also a little icing on the cake. I really love that Bastards of Young line on it and that little thing he did after singing that line. Here’s Jon Latham and Yearbook Signatures. He also sang a couple of his older songs from Real Bad News in these same sessions. Check them out at
