The Black Sorrows’ Very Rich “Poor Boy Blues”

Here’s a song so distinctly American you’d never guess from hearing it, the band is from Australia. “Poor Boy Blues” is a single from The Black Sorrows’ critically acclaimed “Beat Club” album. It’s a haunting, soaring performance, beautifully recorded. A GR8 find, check it out.

Under the Tremeloe Sun with Dom Mariani & The Majestic Kelp

What could be more majestic than a sea of kelp, swaying and glistening in a tremeloe sun? Nothing, nothing, nothing! This is instrumental surf boogie at its finest, with shades of James Bond eating mangoes on a beach with a heavily armed damsel in distress. Bring your sunscreen, this is hot. On Head Records, of course.

Post-feast “Hell to Pay” from Bakelite Radio

I feel like this should be the soundtrack for knife fight scene at a 50’s prom. A well choreographed one, when the greasers show up all hell breaks loose. Seriously rockin sh!t from Bakelite Radio.

The Revelators’ “Spell” turns Old School to New School

The Revelators – “When the Spell Is Broken”

Without gimmicks or slick production tricks, Australia’s Revelators win the old school way: with great composition and performance. It’s nice to hear music like this – so rooted in American country, blues and rock – stand out today, and sound original and contemporary in its own right. Real high quality stuff here.

The Revelators hath Hell to Pay for they doth rock

The Revelators – “Hell to Pay”

A monster track with a message. Now I’m not sure exactly what that message is – I expect it’s a little different for everyone! But Listen up and take heed. Wow, the saxophones and this record are shredding. Yes, I called it a “record.” That’s praise. This rocks.
