Blimey! It’s been a busy one since we last spoke. I hosted another of my alt. rock nights here in London, England. Some amazing emerging rock artists that you should spend a minute of life checking out…
Single Mothers – a band who were first introduced to me by word-of-mouth. That’s the best kind right? A band whose bio starts with ‘Single Mothers broke up in 2009 and have been playing shows ever since…’ has always stuck with me. They’re fellow Londoners…well, of the Canadian type (London, Ontario) and they make a rather wonderful racket that sounds like this:
As I mentioned in my Indie Shuffle post on the same song, bottle up the essence of summer and chuck it back out with some pysch/indie flair. This is Holiday Party, and this is their debut track “I’m Still Here”.
Calling all vibe-hunters; this is chillax bottled up and sprinkled with some hipster swagger. Yellow Days is a British prodigy with all the seasoning of a superstar and his latest stuff supports this even more.
Nothing More are a band originating from Texas, holding all the cult credentials that many alt. rock bands aspire to gain. Returning this week with new material I’ve used this opportunity to get stuck into the old stuff too. “Go To War” is a power jam.
Can we take a minute to appreciate Billy Raffoul. The American singer-songwriter who brings one of those voices to the world that is 100% soul food.
Off to 2000 Trees Festival in a just a couple of days to indulge in a weekend in the Cotswolds (a nice green bit of the UK) with a bunch of alt. rockers.
Till next time,
