Bennett Wilson Poole

A colourful, magical, cosmic English music conjured in rural Oxfordshire by an exceptional trio whose multi-faceted creative capabilities and personalities are alchemised into a majestic whole. Danny Wilson (Danny And The Champions Of The World, Grand Drive), and Robin Bennett (The Dreaming Spires, Saint Etienne) join forces with Tony Poole (Starry Eyed and Laughing), producer

Rachel Baiman

In many ways, Shame, the new album from 27-year-old Nashville Americana songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Rachel Baiman, is an exploration of growing up female in America. “I wasn’t necessarily trying to write songs that would be easy to listen to,” Baiman says of the project, “I wanted to write about reality, in all of it’s terror

Hillbilly Casino

In a town known more for generating pop country ‘hat acts’ and contemporary Christian music, there is a storm brewing. Small independent bands with no management, booking, record labels (or even local media support) are changing the way people think about Nashville Tennessee. Now they’ve got three full length CD’s under their belt. ‘Sucker Punched’,

Peter Oren

Indiana-born, everywhere-based singer-songwriter Peter Oren possesses a remarkable singing voice, low and deep and richly textured: as solid as a glacier, as big as a mountain. Similar in its baritone gravel to Bill Callahan, a hero of his, it rumbles in your conscience, a righteous sound that marks him as an artist for our tumultuous

Michael Nau

Michael Nau has been the frontman for Page France and Cotton Jones. On his solo debut, he displays his penchant for uplift: Sumptuously warm, the set feels invitingly casual, loose-strung, and slightly accidental, a collection of messy indie-rock demos that he fleshes out into surprising songs. From the pastel indie pop of Page France to
2018

The Deep Dark Woods

Floods and plagues, ghosts and slaughter: woe to those who populate the songs of The Deep Dark Woods’ new album Yarrow. A gentle summer breeze swings the gallows ropes, flowers bloom callously on lovers’ graves. These anthems are definitely not from Eden. In Yarrow, there’s a juicy unease to frontman Boldt’s presence, as if a

Prinz Grizzley

Prinz Grizzley dug down in the rich grits of good ol 'country, folk and blues.The more he dug, the more he returned, back home to rural feelings that bound him to his roots in western Austria.Surrounded by rugged wild country, with God-loving, hardworking folk, who are living in the country and who are looking for

Whitney Rose

Whitney Rose is a Canadian singer and songwriter who describes her sound as "vintage-pop-infused neo-traditional country." She grew up on Prince Edward Island and was exposed to country music from a very young age: as a child she spent most of her time at her grandparents' bar, where the jukebox constantly played hits by Hank

Mary Gauthier

Every day. Every single day, which means some days are better and some much worse. Every day, on average, twenty-two veterans commit suicide. Every day.That number does not include drug overdoses or car wrecks or any of the more inventive ways somebody might less obviously choose to die.It seems trivial to suggest those lives might

Seamus Fogarty

“You know when a song is good enough to let go,” muses Seamus Fogarty of his patient and meticulous approach to songcraft. Over time and tide it’s given rise to the London-based Irish alt-folk and electronica alchemist’s truly magnificent second album and Domino debut The Curious Hand. A record not born of grand ideas realised

Birds of Chicago

In so many ways, we are a word weary culture, ever searching for ways to communicate in fewer and fewer words, letters, syllables...Our online, blogged out, you-tubed attention spans are truncated and fragmented like never before. Birds of Chicago, the collective centered around Allison Russell and JT Nero, reassert the simple notion - radical in

Darlingside

The word “extraordinary” is defined as something beyond, amazing, or incredible. The word “extralife” doesn’t exist. But in the world of Darlingside—another previously non-existent word—it’s all about invention, expansion, and elevating everything into the realm of the extraordinary both conceptually and through musical performance. The band’s new album Extralife intensifies the journey begun on its
