Tonight I’ve been rather addicted to this video and have probably watched it over ten times. I haven’t done a lot of homework about Michael Claytor yet. I know he has been touring and playing with the wonderful Austin Lucas. This fabulous song is called Hairpins and it’s from an album called We Have An Elephant, which came out back in 2009 (yes, onechord.net isn’t the best place to keep up with new things, I’m way behind). Anyway, you can download this album from their bandcamp site. I just did. It’s 2 am though, so I better leave that album for tomorrow and go to sleep.. after I’ve watched this video once.. or twice..

Lately I’ve been very much into Klifton Filente’s latest album Common Ground. The man behind Klifton Filente is Jonas Lundvall from Gothenburg, Sweden. A little bit of folk music, a slice of modern indie pop and a whole lot of really good songs. I think the album is mostly brilliant, but if you don’t take my word for it, you can make up your own mind by downloading the album for free on his bandcamp site. This simple video It Takes A Thorn To Remove A Thorn is an outtake from this beautiful album.

Happy new year everyone. Hopefully this will be a good year for the blog, because One Chord To Another’s 10th anniversary is on 17th of september 2011. Staying active is probably the best way to celebrate that. It isn’t a big deal to anyone else, but the fact that soon I’ve kept this thing going on for ten years does mean something to me. Actually it means a lot to me and hopefully I can come up with more ways to celebrate it during the year.
The first music addiction of the year is Caleb Stine. I just downloaded his latest album on reviewshine and even though I’m not even through the first listening session, I’m pretty sure I’m going to love this album. If I had own this last year, it probably would have featured on my end of the year list. A great songwriter and a great singer. Here’s a live video:
