It has been a couple of years since we got to listen… But for all of us that adore Tiger Lou, the longing is over. Tiger Lou is returning for real.

The silence that has echoed since 2009 (if you disregard the teaser Homecoming#2 in 2014) is over.

Tiger Lou released an EP on the 16th of Oktober, a taste a full-length that will hit us in 2016. California Hauling. This is Love at first listen.

Next year will be the year of the Tiger I am sure. International and domestic tours await. We will sure be there. Front row.

 

Meanwhile…

Our big time favorite Swedish americana crooner Daniel Norgren is back with new album The Green Stone – released today. The man really found a sound that echoes of eternity. It’s gut-wrenching och filled with …soul. It’s bare bone beautiful. Try new song I Waited For You.

Blitzen Trapper

Jonas

Unknown

• All the way from Portland, Oregon: Blitzen Trapper and their new album All Across This Land. It’s a divine alt-country lecture, class is dismissed.

You dig classic rock radio; Eagles, Jackson Browne, Springsteen, Mellencamp, the americana songs of Neil Young? Then, this is a shoe in. You are welcome.

Holly Macve is Bella Unions latest signing. A true godess of country dark songs. She also opens for John Grant on his upcoming tour. Asked why, Mr Grant stated: ”When I heard her voice the decision was made. Very simple.”

Bella Union boss Simon Raymonde says: “Little is known of Holly other than she is a 20 year old from Yorkshire who appeared out of nowhere in Brighton late last year. I had a tip-off to go to a basement bar where she was playing. In a room full of beery boys chatting across all the music beforehand, the minute Holly opened her mouth the room fell silent. Hers is a rare gift.”

We let her song speak for her, the beautiful fireside cowboy tune: The Corner Of My Mind.

The return of Kristofer Åström

Jonas

Singer/songwriter Kristofer Åström from Luleå is back after three years of silence. New album The Story of a Heart’s Decay got the 70-vibe we adore, a glimpse of long highways, packs of cigarettes and lukewarm beer.

”I’ve always had songs in me, never had a writer’s block. I really wanted every song on this record to be better than everything I’ve done before”, Kristofer says.
He nailed it. The album was recorded live in Gothenburg and all involved got guide lines to follow: No instruments or microphones manufactured after 1978 was to be used. The aim: An old sound, without sounding old. Old but new.

Mr Ryan Adams

• Genius Ryan Adams covers Taylor Swifts album 1989 from beginning to end. It’s a Nebraska-kind-of-mood and an altogether fantastic trip you have to take. It’s no wigs and no costumes.

Try the ever emotional Out Of The Woods.
