Kentuckyseven brings you the wonderful debut single from space invader TDeL2 - the remarkable song Fearless Youth. The song is a great wide open, massive sound, subtle guitar, epic and uplifting. An auspicious beginning for this new artist.
TDeL2 is the alias of Tony DeLuca, based out of Omaha, Nebraska and he is the first artist Monkey Records has signed from the USA. The debut album, Barnegat, will be out early November.
Sometimes… You just know when you stumble upon real music. Real musicians. Real emotions.
A friend in LA wrote me a letter, letting me know that she had something for me. Something that would be right up my alley.
I dont know if she knew how right she was. When I first heard the Song Preservation Society, I was baffled. I was in love.
This is for real. This is what what happens when real musicians and real writers get together and create. I feel small. I feel in love.
If you are totally unaffected by this, please let me know. Otherwise, just smile to your fellow person. Knowing you have met the love for music.
Song Preservation Society is Trevor Bahnson, Ethan Glazer and Daniel Wright. Their debut EP, Ready Room, was recorded in the fall of 2012 with guidance from the much respected Nino Moschella, ”master of coaxing”.
In my world, the sound of these guys is not to be placed on any coast of the vast country they operate in, but a national treasure. Listen, understand or let it just keep your heart in shape…
Wake Owl is the talented Colyn Cameron, born and raised in southern Cali. He worked on different farms throughout the UK, Germany, Chile and Canada, and traveled the world, before settling down in Portland, Oregon and Vancouver, BC.
His sound is very raw, very honest, very terrestrial. Very groovy. Check out the five-song debut-EP, here´s the titletune ‘Wild Country’.
• Courtney Jaye from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, is a well traveled singer songwriter we dig. She lived in the Hawaiian island of Kauai as well as in music cities such as Austin, Texas and Nashville, Tennessee.
This great gal have worked with geniuses as BRMC and Dallas Green. She got class others only dream about. Enjoy her great tune ‘Say Oh Say’ from the brand new LP ‘Love & Forgiveness’.
Valerie June is on our mind. This bluesforce from Humboldt, Tennessee, will take over the world as we know it. And man she rocks.
The song You Can’t Be Told is produced and co-written by Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys and Kevin Augunas from Florence and The Machine. You can shake the BK-vibe all over, yet Valerie June got her own dirty-swampy-rootsy-thing going on.
