Langhorne Slim Blows Your Mind

So Glad I’m Coming Home Back to the Wild Diamonds and Gold I was introduced to Langhorne Slim just before the release of his newest album Be Set Free in 2009.  I generally have an affinity towards folk music and Langhorne Slim is right at the top of my list.  He’s one of those singer/songwriters that writes some of the most gut wrenching songs you’ll hear.  He does it with a charisma and energy that almost seems unparalleled. I remember last.fm popped on Diamonds and Gold, and from the moment I heard that song, I knew I had to hear…

Devin Davis – Lonely People of the World Unite

Turtle and the Flightless Bird Iron Woman Deserted Eyeland Back in 2005, Devin Davis, a Chicago based American indie musician released this great album Lonely People of the World Unite that it seems no one knew about.  It’s a real shame for Devin Davis that this album wasn’t more successful.  Had he received more exposure, this album would have been a real break out for him.  But for the select few that stumble upon this record, by word-of-mouth or just plain luck, it’s a treat. I personally had not received the album until a few months ago, it quickly made its…

I revisit The Felice Brothers

Run Chicken Run (Yonder is the Clock) Penn Station (Yonder is the Clock) Frankies Gun! (The Felice Brothers) I had bought the Felice Brothers’ self titled album and was absolutely floored by their ability to recapture a turn of the century feel with their music.  It seems as though their style mixes many music styles; delta blues, folk and americana.  Their self titled album really got a lot of play out of me and then in 2009 they came out with a brand new album, I was straight to the store to purchase Yonder is the Clock.  After one or…

Son of the Sun – The Happy Loss

‘The Happy Loss’ by sonofthesunmusic As suggested from Ryan of rslblog.com I sat down to check out Son of the Sun and found a full streaming version of their brand new album The Happy Loss.  This album has the potential to make Son of the Sun a break out band.  This one is definitely worth a listen. Son of the Sun plays PA’s Lounge tonight in Somerville, MA

Dent May – That Feeling

That Feeling If you haven’t heard of Dent May, I wouldn’t blame you.  He’s a musician from Mississippi who was popularized by his use of ukelele.  It seems as though he’s put it down and made a summer synth heatwave cooling kind of song.  It’s got the right vibe for a warm summer night, and is extremely catchy. The track comes from his upcoming release, and is free to download. http://dentmay.com/

Maps & Atlases – Perch Patchwork

Banished Be Cavalier Maps & Atlases gave us Solid Ground, the first track off their upcoming(at the time) album Perch Patchwork.  I received it in April, and I really enjoyed it.  I was curious what else would come, if this were a template for the rest of the music they’d include on the album.  When I got Perch Patchwork, I instantly fell in love with it.  The key & tempo changes, it was like a progressive folk, with dabs of psychedelia.  I think at first these guys were put into a Math or Art Rock kind of category that was just…
