Today a new song surfaced, which will be on the album – THE GYPSY JOKER.

Drawing deeply from the well of brit-blues THE GYPSY JOKER finds the listener searching the wardrobe for a faded jeans jacket and pin-button badges along with air guitar to take up position and headbang away with just over four and half minutes track.

The title track evokes of the warm glow of a three bar electric heater with flattened guitar strings bending the chords around the subdued duo of of harmonised vocals.

Whilst easy on the ears Nothing’s Changed has an intangible magnetism which captures the listeners attention.

The title track and opener is a rendition of a fuzzy ’60s merseybeat good time foot stomper.

Next is the Ennio Morricone minding winding road of Nine Tenths.

My pick of the release being the film noir, moody, Lynchian closer See It My Way.

The Life We Lead – Single – Pioneer Salesmen is available on iTunes.*

The Foreign Films – Teardrop Town – Audio

The Canadian retro-rock project The Foreign Films released the LP The Record Collector on the 15th.

The Foreign Films

The appropriately named album (available on bandcamp) serves as something of a musical reflective of a life-story told through the ages which is revealed during the course of the thirty one tracks lasting for heading towards two hours.

The soft lens focus in the hushed analogue tones of the album provides a narrative in itself which is able to warm the listener to the tale unfolding as exuberance, passions, foreboding, joy, sadness and sagacity thread through the LP, one which can be dipped in and out of at leisure or taken as a full dining experience.

Given the breadth of the story-line a pick of the release does no more than provide a steer to The Record Collector  nonetheless – Teardrop Town – the seventh song on the LP is my selection.

The Newds – Drawing A Line – Video

It has been a few years since the English retro-rock band The Newds last featured.

The Newds - Drawing A Line

The Newds

Their latest song to appear Drawing A Line, which came out earlier in the month, takes them in to the late ’70s rather than from their more normal sphere of influence of a decade earlier, with a tautly coiled composition that minds of a cat readying its muscles to lithely pounce.

Drawing a Line – The Newds is available on iTunes.*
