Some New Music
Like many bloggers I probably stand accused of living in the past given that most of the stuff I post is at least a couple of years old.
I tend to avoid posting newer stuff as I feel I should give people the opportunity to purchase the music and to support the artist.
I sometimes wait until their next record is out before I feature some of my newer acquisitions.
However, I feel that if an artist and record company are promoting an album by providing a song on a music magazine CD it is ok to post it here.
So here is Hurray for the Riff Raff with her excellent new song Hungry Ghost from the ATO album The Navigator which features as part of this month's Uncut
Hurray for the Riff Raff - Hungry Ghost
Holly Macve is a new Irish singer whose voice puts me in mind of Paula Frazer and that is no bad thing. Almost inevitably it was The Swede who first brought her to my attention.
Her debut album Golden Eagle is released of Bella Union on March the 3rd. Mine is on pre-order and I can hardly wait
It wasn't the Swede but rather Murray from the ever excellent Everything Flows who first alerted me to an exciting young Glasgow band Static Union
If the rest of their stuff turns out to be half as good as their debut single Turn Out the Lights then they surely have a great future ahead of them.
