Despite this being the first single, Favourite Feelings, has the quietly spaced confidence of a seasoned campaigner.

It is an interesting crossover track which draws from many sources – trad-folk, ’70s soul, radio-friendly, and a soupçon of dirty blues to deliver a song that is able to pull in both those of us who enjoy their music with some gravel ripped scratches as well as those who like smooth glossy veneers.

It will be interesting to hear where the ultimate direction of travel lays by a musician who evidently has the tools in the kit-bag to build a long lasting structure.

Revealed a few hours ago was the fourth of the ten songs on the album – Dysfunctional Lovers – which, those of longer stay will note is of very different carving to their last feature back in 2015.

Now with an additional player as well as a stretch of instrumentation from wind, through keys, strings and percussive, Donny Love create music which has a jazzy undertow to the rock derived compositions that are able to catch and retain attention.

The Noolands – Loosey Goosey – Audio

The Canadian funk-rock quartet The Noolands release the EP Us On A Bus on the 25th of April.

The first track to surface from the EP Loosey Goosey is a more hip dipping groove number than much of their back-catalogue, and discovers the listener digging in the cupboard to find that forgotten white fedora.

Given the liner notes of instrumentation, including a guest saxophonist, for the full five track EP (available on bandcamp) I would anticipate Us On A Bus will be a wide ranging eclectic mix of funky-rock’n’roll.

For now, having also found some white flares – I’m off to jive with Loosey Goosey.

The first track to surface from the album, #4, was revealed last week. A winding cohesion of a soaring and swooping guitar blended around the vocal in a song tipped with latin dance and southern blues which finds the body accompanying the rhythm.
