Little Mammoths

First to surface from the album is Hungover In New York.

The superlative voice immediately focuses the attention with the raspy breath of a whisky drinker and heavy smoker as it whetstones through the room on scratched vocal chord.

By the time mind refocuses on the accompanying instrumentation – the listener is already in rapt attention as they alight upon the cornucopia of sounds which, by each bar, entice greater adoration as surfacing through the soundtrack is a lap-steel that has the ability to make the lyrics seem as though they are being rushed, whilst tautly strung guitar shimmers on finger-nail strumming with the bass providing an earthy grounding and the drums keeping everything aligned as it weaves between brushed steel and snippy skin.

45 – Longshot – Audio

The English Americana trio 45 released the EP Total Curtain Failure last month.



The roughly thirteen minute four track is signatured by bending guitar strings and extended vocal twists and turns as the trio inject UK phlegmatic indifference into classic US rock, resulting in a release which counter-intuitively is able to broach the Atlantic Ocean in a joyous marrying of ideas – revealing something to add to the ‘moments of reflective’ playlist.

The second track on the EP (available on bandcamp) is Longshot.
