Samana Rising is an alt-rock quintet from Norway.

Samana Rising

Their music is always soaked in retrospective roots whilst of varied source material.

Wherever they are pointing their toes Samana Rising are able to deliver their own twist to the blend with the two deft guitars being able to switch seamlessly from echoing rhythm and blues through country-americana and on to brit-blues – the fulcrum of the most recent song – Dizzy which was released on the 10th – with the equally capable vocals bending from soul ballad to gutsy rock’n’roll and on to husky left-bank café Parisienne – yet never becoming misty eyed, nor ever loosing the audience along the way.


Dizzy – Single – Samana Rising is available on iTunes.*

The Million Reasons – Dizzy – Single Review

The US blues-rock quartet The Million Reasons released the one track plus one remix single Dizzy on the 14th.

The Million Reasons

The original version of Dizzy (available on bandcamp) is a heading towards five and three quarters minutes of finely blended and calmly delivered melodious balmy blues-rock. Meandering through the room in filters of a progressive psychedelic lens The Million Reasons have created a song in to which the listener unhitches from the world around and loses themselves in immersive imaginations of their own with little desire to reconnect once the song has drifted in to silence.

Even the radio friendly cut runs to over four minutes, though inevitably, I do recommend the original over the snipped song.
