What Everyone Else Was Saying – Weekly Blog Roundup

(Alien World by Bjorn Copeland)

Maybe it’s an acquired taste but I acquired it the moment I heard it. Song By Toad has poetic new music from Gerry Mitchell and Little Sparta.

Obscure Sound once again does a in-depth profile of an under-appreciated performer – this time Nick Jaina and his forthcoming record on Hush.

To The Dogs or Whoever is on a mission (something I can relate to – Jon Jackson anyone?) to get the word out about the English folk singer Andy Whitler with a repost of his music from 2007 and a contest.

Here Comes The Flood has the bluesy singer-songwriter Ernie Hendrickson; he’s got the song “Bad Mixed Up Woman” from the forthcoming album.

Mainstream Isn’t So Bad, Is It has a couple of songs from the Weinland – a record I’m guilty that I passes on.

From the “see I told you so” dept: PopMatters has a nice piece on Songs:Illinois fave Eilen Jewell.

Speaking of Jon Jackson, I’m glad to say my little post about him has created a bit of a snowballing effect. Now You Crazy Dreamers has posted a couple of songs and conducted a great interview with this up and coming singer-songwriter.

    Thanks for the wee link. I thought no-one was digging it at all, but I’ve been away for a day or so and come back and it seems to have been really popular in my absence. Even bumped into someone at a nightclub who happened to a/ know the album and b/ love it! Amazing!

    Also, if you like this you might want to keep an eye out for Aidan John Moffat’s debut release in a couple of months. Less doom-laden, but a similar spoken word + music style, from what I can tell so far.
