Sometime you hear a new song and you’re like ‘mehhh this is ok’, then few hours/days later you have this weird melody in your head and you don’t know where it’s from. Until you realize that your mind really want to listen again to this ‘ok’ song. Somehow you almost miss this gem.
This is exactly what happen with this song. So thank you my brain for reminding me that this song is superb.
Let’s be generous today ! An other free download. This time it’s all about the soul with the beautiful singer Alice Russell from UK.
In case you missed it, she released her first video for the new CD ‘to dust’ last november and it’s really good. So much groove and soul (and so funny). Her new album will be released on February 25th and you should definitely check it out.

Nothing really new here, but somehow I missed this “new” song by Alabama Shakes. ‘Always Alright’ is a very good song that you might heard at their concert or in the movie ‘Silver Linings Playbook’. Oh and it’s a free download !
I have to admit that I’m in love with Erykah’s voice since the first time I heard ‘You got me’. All her albums and featuring have been pretty amazing. She already started to move toward electronic music with songs like ‘The Healer’ or ‘Window Seat’ in her New Amerykah part 1 & 2.
Bonobo is also an artist I really enjoy. He is making such beautiful calm and relaxing songs. So the mix of the two is just marvelous !
The album will be available on April 1st.
Just relax and enjoy,

Yesterday’s post reminded me of an other great murder ballad I heard few years ago. Since we have to wait 2 more months before we get the new Vandaveer CD, it’s a very good excuse to play again this great track from 2009.
Oh and we should get a new cd by Amanda this year since she was in studio at the end of last year.

In 2011 Vandaveer gave an amazing album with ‘Dig Down Deep’. They are coming back with a new album on april 30th. OH, WILLIE, PLEASE… A NEW ALBUM OF TRADITIONAL FOLK MURDER BALLADS. Sounds exciting ! The first single fit perfectly the description.
Grab a glass, lay back, listen to the ballad and Enjoy,

Somehow I totally missed the news about Houndmouth. As usual La lune des pirates was there to save the day. It was a quiet night at the bar but that did not stop this band to give us a great show for their second concert ever in France.
On their first EP released last summer is really good but also wayyy to short especially after the superb set of 10-13 songs they gave us the other night. I guess I will have to have those four songs on repeat until they give us a full CD.
First Krampus ! What more can you say than I would walk a thousand miles with this song and still fell really happy.
Houndmouth like to surprise us by changing the role between songs. All four members sings, and they can play multiple instruments. On the last song of their set, a beautiful cover, they ALL switched instruments and all sang a verse. On Houston Train we have the chance to hear the great voice of their beautiful organist.

First there was ‘Pompei’ a few weeks ago, then Bear’s Den released their first EP ‘Agape’ with an eponym single and now we get the first video. All three songs are just amazing. You can play them on repeat all day and you will still be amazed.
This video is pretty simple but it goes very well with what I imagined of Bear’s Den.
If you did not grap you free ‘Agape’ you need to go there DOWNLOAD ‘Agape’ (What are you waiting for !)

It’s easy to fall in love with a song. I was listening to the new mixtape made by Fuzzpony (get it here) and even if the first song where really good the fourth one was just so good that I had to listen to it an other time and then many more times.
I never heard about the Little Green Cars before but I will make sure to keep a eye on them in the future.
Let’s fall in love and Enjoy
Night Beds released their first album ‘Country Sleep’ today, so you will probably read a lot about them in the next few days/weeks and probably years with such a nice album.
So first an “official” video for Ramona recorded live at the Ocean Way Studio.
If you liked this you should go check the Chapel Session shared with us by Heather at Fuel with Friends. They recorded four beautiful songs including a cover of Damien Jurado and an amazing a capella of ‘Faithful Heights’.
