Back in the Game

Hello again. It’s been a while.

I promised I’d come back with some choice cuts of new music reverie and let it never be said that I’m not true to my word. It just takes me a bit of time to come good on my promises.

So here we are – strap yourself in.

First up are LA-based rockers The Neighbourhood with their recent single Prey – a nicely atmospheric piece of indie/alt rock goodness in the mould of The Black Keys and their contemporaries. Very nice indeed, although apologies for the slightly crappy video.

Next up, how about some gorgeous finger-picking folky goodness? Well here you are; this is Cold Moon by Portland-based singer Alela Diane and guitarist Ryan Francesconi. It’s bloody lovely, with Nick Drake-meets-Jose Gonzalez guitar vibes and hauntingly beautiful vocals aplenty. I really, really like this. (unfortunately there’s no video on youTube, which is a travesty, so you’ll just have to make do with the Spotify audio I’m afraid)

And last up is New York synth-rock throwback stars Panama Wedding with their new track Uma which is full of lovely synthesised backdrops, 80s-esque beats and loopy goodness. Cracking chorus too.
