Against A Simple Wooden Cross

July 22nd, 2012

I can really relate to Fraser McGowan’s story right now, and I know some of you will get my drift.

The absolutely wonderful ‘Against A Simple Wooden Cross’ was born after Scottish based artist Fraser McGowan (AKA Caught In The Wake Forever) had suffered a complete mental breakdown last year, following a life-long battle with chronic anxiety. He had to give up his job and eventually his girlfriend and son moved out, leaving him to face his struggles alone.

Naturally, he felt destroyed but the one thing he had was extra time on his hands, which he had not been used to before. Previously, his work with music had been a very slow process but suddenly, the one thing he had left was a seemingly infinite amount of time in which to work carefully and unhurried. For six months, Fraser immersed himself in this album and poured everything that he had left into it. At the start of the project he had absolutely no confidence left in himself and as the music began to take shape, he began to tread the road to recovery.

Against A Simple Wooden Cross is an honest account from an artist who was literally starting life again, completely on his own terms for the first time.

This great album is out now on Hibernate. All profits from the album will go to Crisis Counselling established in 1996 to significantly reduce the barriers and exclusion in mental health care. PURCHASE THE ALBUM HERE 

 


Texas Forever

June 27th, 2012

Its called ‘2 days in June’. I am day dreaming again, about a cozy little place in the countryside, not too far from the city, a small cheesy room, a tiny bed…we don’t need a larger one just because we are tied up together real close. Everything around you slows down, fades away, and the only thing existing is what I sense and feel from you, your body, and what I see deep in your eyes, where your pain and fear disappears, and the demons that usually attack from within are being abandoned helpless. This is one day in June, and the 2nd one starts the morning after, with the leftovers of the magic, taste ans smells of the first. Justin D’Onofrio AKA Grandpa was a lion has just released ‘2 days in June’, a 2 gorgeous acoustic tracks EP, available now for free download. Needless to say we just love it…listen to ‘Texas Forever’, the first track off this EP.

Remember to remember me

June 16th, 2012

Personally, the combination of dreamy+repetition+bedroom music is theeee winning formula. Thing is, Chad Hogan AKA Chad Hagans can write beautiful haunting tunes, regardless. A Nick Drake influenced upstate kid, with lots of talent anf songwriting maturity, with a first EP titled ‘Morning Stories‘ released late last year, and a full length debut, ‘Remember to remember me’ on Bluebery Hill records. Oops, almost forgot, did I mention this record was produced by theeee man, Erik David?..I guess I didn’t, so here you are.

 


My private gem

June 16th, 2012

Its getting late now, as I start my daily or nightly if it pleases you ongoing debate wheather I should surrender myself to sleep or continue sailing on the lookout for inspiring goodies. I mean, I cant help it, it’s in my nature by now. As for inspiration, I got loads of it these days, coming from a secret source. My private gem, it is, filling me with hope, strength, and endless motivation. This one from Paz Lenchantin fits the mood so perfectly, that I had to take a deep breath, download, and share it with ya all.

We received this mail today: “You may remember a band by the name of “Meeting House”, but we are here to inform you that last summer the Meeting House burnt to the ground and it’s sole inhabitant flew the coop. Now, we introduce “M.H.”

M.H. has teamed up with Max Brooks of “Hoop Dreams” fame to direct a music video for last years “Carousel” featuring a ghost choir by the likes of Tommy Davidson of “Dream Cop” and Nevin Kight”. Beautiful my friends..

Was just listening to Lau Nau‘s gorgeous music on The A&D blog and thought you might enjoy it as well. Some words off her bio section here:

Lau Nau is Finnish artist Laura Naukkarinen. Since the release of her celebrated debut full length ‘Kuutarha‘ on Chicago’s Locust Music in 2005, Lau Nau has enjoyed considerable recognition for her intimate & playful blend of ethnic tinged folk songs with curious & intuitive sounds conjured from familiar and exotic sound sources.

Odd Vantage

May 16th, 2012

Albert Murienne had caught me off guard. Its just one of those moments, while I was scheduling a doctor’s appointment for my mom, paying a license voucher at the post office, you know, the type of stuff that makes you regret you are a sophisticated animal…then I have checked upon my emails, looking for the irritating stuff first, naturally, to get it out of the way, and stumbled upon this Black Coffee & Cherry Pie new release, which is how Albert titles this new venture , a brainchild of his after 8 years of turntabling. It all happened after he had discovered  the guitar, and I can assure you shit is working. Sweet, simple, no manouvers, straight forward a real enjoyable record. Plus you could head over to his bandcamp page and download for free…Just make sure you click the like button, cause this is the least you could do…Love this album….
