You should all take a moment out of your day today (or make note to do so later this week) and go listen to Tiny Ruins gorgeous new EP of old songs ‘Haunts’ . If you have ever heard Hollie sing before, then you probably do not need any further convincing on why you should drop what you’re listening to right now and switch. There is a mesmerizing beauty to her voice and this EP is a simply magic. Just like everything else she’s put to tape… although, there might be just a pinch more magic captured on this EP. [...]

The 8th instalment of our ‘ask an artist to record their own ‘daytrotter-esque’ session in their own bedrooms / homes / DIY surrounding’ returns this week with the talented Wes Tirey sitting down and recording 4 tracks in his dining room in Black Mountain, North Carolina. Some of these tracks are new, some are old, one doesn’t even have a title yet, but all 4 were recorded in one sitting while his cat Tonto looked on from the living room. And now, through the magic of technology, you get to hear the same thing that Tonto heard. As with all [...]
Everyday is always a good day to listen to Ben’s classic album ‘Sha Sha’ ( listen on Spotify ). Which is exactly what I am doing right now. There are so many great songs on it, that it is a bit disheartening to know that he was only 22 when it was released. Although every track is an outright gem, ‘Lizzy’ has always been (and still is) my favourite track. It’s just a lovely little ditty. And if you are one of those folks that dabble on the guitar, it makes for a great song and to learn [...]

The trickiest thing about attempting to write about music is that I’m not really a guy that likes to write about music. I like to listen to it. When I come across something that I enjoy, like Wes Tirey’s EP ‘I Stood Among Trees’ , I like to listen to it a lot. And those albums sort of become mini soundtracks for my very un-cinematic life. But beyond me suggesting that I think you should all check this EP out ( available on CD or ‘pay what you like, no minimum’ digitally on his Bandcamp ), I’m not [...]

Ok, first things first. LadyFace is the new name for the project currently known as The Best Friends With Wolves Club . So if you recognize some of these songs, or if the themes of wide-eyed child wonder mixed with mildly murderous undertones sounds familiar, that is why. So why the name change? “ We changed our name because no one could ever remember what we were called..LadyFace works because everyone that [...]
I started a Spotify playlist to try and keep track of some of my favourite music from 2013 + releases from 2013 that I intend to come back to and spend a bit more time with. I’ll be updating / tweaking it throughout the year, so if you use Spotify and are interested in keeping tabs on this evolving playlist of tunes from the year 2013… maybe subscribe to it ? Hopefully by the end of the year, I’ll have a 2013 version of the playlist I made for 2012 ( 212 Of My Favourite Tracks From 2012 [...]
