Gena Perala – Lucky One

Word arrives that work is underway for a new triphop LP, therefore you will readily identify this country-rock live performance of the new track Lucky One isn’t going to be on that album – however, regular readers will also know I am a sucker for certain instruments – slide guitar being one…

Dusk – The Names You Got – Audio

The US country-rock quintet Dusk released their eponymous LP on the 15th.

Dusk

Dusk

A ten track album (available on bandcamp) which takes the listener on a wide reaching journey of sound with the songs ranging from tear-jerkers to shoe-shuffling rock’n’roll. Their key point of difference of sound being the synthesised keys that enables Dusk to head far from the more trodden dusty trail and stake out their own ground.

The closing track is The Names You Got.

Amy Lawton – Hurts Like Paradise – Single Review

Amy Lawton is a country-rock creator from England.

A couple of songs exist for those of us who haven’t had the opportunity to catch live performances.

The most recent – Hurts Like Paradise, which came out earlier in the month, has an alluring, powerful, yet fragile vocal, akin to fine spiders thread, affording the track a poise which is carried atop a trotting tempo and the listener finds themselves swept on to the dance-floor to join in with the swaying rhythm while guitar meanders between quiet background and front spotlight – which adds to the sense of organic movement of the composition.

A rolling rhythm finds the listener trotting with their horse across a dusty plain with tumbleweed scattering around.

Not pretending to be what it isn’t Molly Kruse offers, in Ruby, an exceptionally well executed track in a genre unless you are of the USA you may normally by-pass. I merely ask you to mount the stirrups and feel the warm leather saddle as the music lopes through the room.

Little Bastard - country rock from Australia

Little Bastard

Mid-west America couldn’t come up with anything more Americana country blues than Little Bastard. Essentially a live performance act, though how the seven of them fit on the stage I am not quite sure, but there is plenty to enjoy by listening to recorded pieces. Every conceivable instrument from fiddle to harmonica appears at some stage or another and it is all delivered with an infectious sense of fun that the audience can’t help but get tapping along to.


Inside the framework of the upright mid-west, Little Bastard inject some Australian nonchalance and the resulting compositions skitter across the room on the verge of a breakdown, but it is all kept in order and the exuberant sounds continue to rattle round the head long after the music has stopped.

Gaining considerable visibility around Australia on the festival circuit, this is an out-fit who need to bring their rays of sunshine to an international live audience as this is music that works just anywhere.

Turn up the volume and enjoy a rollicking good party with Little Bastard.
