(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.
