The first track shared from the long awaited JONATHAN WILSON album, Rare Birds, due on March 2nd on Bella Union


Of ‘Over The Midnight’, Wilson says, “I wanted to write a song about a sacred place for lovers to exist and I named that destination, process, mood or feeling  ‘Over the Midnight’. It’s a place where nothing is savage.” In one of Wilson’s favourite lines on the album he sings, “This world it is burning, but don’t it feel incredible?/ Whisper in my ear and tell me what you see in the flames.”

The Hanging Stars ‘How I Got This Way’ (feat. Miranda Lee Richards) Premiere

Walthamstow’s psych-folk-country quartet THE HANGING STARS release the second single, ‘How I Got This Way’, from their forthcoming album Songs For Somewhere Else (out 9th February 2018). The dreamy country lament features angelic harmonies from psych folk singer MIRANDA LEE RICHARDS. See them at Servant Jazz Quarters – London on Wed 22nd Nov.


Taking cues from both sides of the Atlantic, The Hanging Stars mainline the dying embers of the early’ 70s psychedelic-folk and cosmic-country scenes, transforming them into an energized new sound for our times. The album, Songs For Somewhere Else, is about escapism from the everyday, against the cynicism and greed that pervades society.

Tracing their inspiration from Dennis Wilson to Gram Parsons and On The Beach era Neil Young, they equally draw from early gospel soaked Spiritualized, jangle pop, spaghetti western soundtracks, old Bossa Nova records and prohibition-era blues.

Michael Rault ‘Sleep With Me’

We love MICHAEL RAULT. Now signed with Wick Records (the rock imprint of Daptones)  expect great things are guaranteed. His critically acclaimed album Living Daylight was released in 2015 (and raved about by us). Since then he’s been busy at work on his follow-up. To give fans a taste of what he’s been working on, here’s the video for his new song ‘Sleep With Me’. 


Directed by Laura-Lynn Petrick (who has made videos for Weyes Blood and Nick Waterhouse, among others), ‘Sleep With Me’ is a gorgeous Super-8 dream. “I wrote this song about dreams and sleeping, and escaping the realities of day-to-day life,” says Rault. “It also has slick guitarmonies! I was digging Wings and ELO and the grandiose pop arrangements of the ’70s, and decided to try my hand at something kind of over the top like that.” Read more Michael Rault ‘Sleep With Me’
