I wasn’t planning on a new music post today, but when Night Beds popped into my inbox this morning, I just knew I’d have to do one. The atmospheric, beautiful Nashville alt-folk of Winston Yellen is perk-up-your-ears-and-listen type stuff. There are comparisons to be made with the wonderful Bon Iver, but equally with greats of the past like Gram Parsons and Johnny Cash. This really is something very special. Debut single ‘Even If We Try’ was released on September 18th through Dead Ocean Records. You can watch/listen below.
Hailing from Stroud, Hot Feet are an exceptionally vibrant and earthy force, and I’ve been listening to their forthcoming EP release ‘Wood House’ all week long. The EP, produced by the lovely Pete Roe, is everything at once; the band offer gorgeous visual tales of countryside living with enough hoedown to have a whole room of their feet in no time at all. The songs go from being quiet acoustic ditties into full blown folk rock chanties in the blink of an eye. It’s great stuff. ‘Wood House’ is released independently on November 14th. You can listen to ‘Under October’, taken from the release, below.
