Definitely a case of standing room only onboard this bus as Fergus McKay and his band, Nothing Concrete, perform their latest single, Old Black Crow, in the vehicle which has been reappropriated as a theatre. With an all-female tap-dancing brass section and a rip-roaring tale of derring-do as witnessed by a by-standing crow, this is close to uncategorisable and all the better for it.
Scotland based band Screamin’ Whisper Have been hard at work writing and recording their brand new album ‘Filth’.
And with the band steadily growing and gaining traction within their local live circuit, they are assured to be heading to a town near you.
Delivering a heartfelt and fantastically executed rendition of the much loved Micheal Jackson classic ‘Man In The Mirror’, Paddy James doesn’t fail to deliver.
Paddy James is a singer-songwriter who takes stories and turns them into carefully constructed Folk/indie inspired simplistic tracks, with new song “Perfectly Flawed” having just been released, 2018 is shaping up to be the year of Paddy James.
We’d never really considered foxes as frightening, but we’re beginning to wonder how we’ve ever managed to sleep at night after watching this. JohnlikeJohn’s resident fox (possibly in all sense, we couldn’t possibly say), Twiggy, gets her breakout role in Faking Foxes, the nightmarish new video released by the rising folk collective. Don’t have nightmares. But you will.
Is there a point to making music videos any more? Here’s your answer – “yes”, any day of the week. Brilliantly executed, Cholesterol Jones’ video to his latest track, “Satan’s in Heaven”, sees him bearing his teeth and mauling Donald Trump, whilst still delivering a brilliant song and a video which drags you in from the very beginning. No-one is going to walk away from this one before it finishes, testament to Cholesterol’s indie-folk songwriting and his video-making skills. “Satan’s in Heaven” will be the lead track from the forthcoming EP of the same name. It has made us very happy.

This is an live session performed by JOHNLIKEJOHN. With his classically emotional and entertaining take on life, JOHNLIKEJOHN‘s arsenal of Double Bass, acoustic guitar and sweet mix of male and female vocals prove to the world that they are here to have fun and live life to the fullest.
With the upcoming release of his new EP, ‘Vegans Are Evil Too’, this is the perfect teaser for what is yet to come.
Ex-pat harpist, Julia Mascetti is making quite a name for herself in her adopted home of Tokyo. Combining a very British style of folk and singer-songwriter sensibilities with traditional Japanese musical accompaniment: this live rendition of the lead track from her forthcoming EP, “In Distance, Everything is Poetry” shows her dark, spooky side in a unique setting.
Mark L. Oakes has recently dropped the new video for his single ‘Shredded Jeans’ that is taken from his latest album, Call Me The Moon.
The Belgian singer-songwriter’s relaxed folky style is perfectly accompanied by the emotive black and white visuals of the video. We see Mark playing his guitar in baron, winter landscapes that evoke a sense of desolation and loneliness, yet this fits in with how Oakes describes his album as the ideal soundtrack for a ‘karmic road trip’.
Mainly tracked at Mark’s home studio in the heart of the Ardennes, the record has been finalised with the help of Londoner cellist Ben Trigg and mastered by Grammy award winner Gavin Lurssen in Los Angeles.

For lovers of easy-listening, folk style music, make sure to check out ‘The Wayfarer’ by Glenn Harrold.
Harrold is also a well renowned hypnotherapist and self-help author who has sold millions of copies all over the world, but now he has employed his other talent of songwriting.
With the strong and meaningful story of the Peace Pilgrim behind the beautiful music of ‘The Wayfarer’, Glenn has a potent combination for his diversion into the world of music. ‘The Wayfarer’ also features the soft and pure vocals of Dean Rhymes, whose voice takes you on a journey of its own.
The video documents the remarkable story of Mildred Lisette Norman, otherwise known as the ‘Peace Pilgrim’, who walked across America at least 8 times in the name of world peace. With some wonderful historical footage and of course, Glenn’s well-crafted musicianship, ‘The Wayfarer’ is certainly worth a watch, and a listen.
The new video from Middle Kids for their upbeat single ‘Never Start’ is definitely one to watch.
With an edgy black and white 1960s new-wave film vibe and tons of flashing lights, there is a great concept behind the video, directed by Emile Freeman.
The Sydney, Australia, based trio made waves across the world with their last release, ‘Edge of Town’ and they’ll be hoping to do the same with ‘Never Start’.
Worth a listen for those who like their folky-indie-rock!
