Dead Can Dance have visited KCRW and performed a short twenty minute set which you can now see in its entirety by following the link here. I’m very excited to see them in July!
First time ever – Mountain solo. The ending is awesome. That is all at risk of becoming an even lesser veiled fanboy.
This is a wonderful live concert while we wait for the new album to be completed and available for us all to consume merrily.
Introduced to her from Wears The Trousers who tempted me in with her album cover – Rebekka Karijold’s latest album will be reviewed shortly. Until then, here’s my favourite track from it:
Sóley appears to be quite well known from the awesome musical country of Iceland but I’ve only just discovered her via this wonderful live set via KEX Radio. “We Sink” came out last year.
Amiina’s most recent album Puzzle is simply stunning. This is a perfect rendition of the opening track Asinn:
Atticus Finch is a new band I came across last night. The band are from Perth, Australia and this wonderful live acoustic version of one of their tracks “My Release” is beautiful. I really enjoy the timbre of the lead vocalist:
With the Art of Time Ensemble – let’s hope a DVD is released of this!
Beautifully understated. Copperfox.
Finally in the Live Vault trio its Dead Can Dance whom I can’t find a ticket for anywhere! Here’s two songs from Brendan that aren’t on an album but are both beautiful.
And a few others too:
Middle part of our trio this evening is Fiona Apple with my favourite song from her latest album. This is a wonderful rendition.
For those of us not in the USA whom adore this magical singer/songwriter here are some clips from her recent show. *cue freak out…. now*
I had no idea our Knife friends had also dabbled elsewhere too! Enjoyable stuff indeed!
The Commuters have been a new band that’s popped onto my radar of late and they’ve recently released this live video from their recent acoustic show. A lovely addition to the rock I’ll be reviewing later on this week.
Jesse Terry is an upcoming singer/songwriter from America whose talent, voice and subject matters sound like he’s been around for many a year longer than his recording history would suggest. Spending a lot of time on the road playing live, he’s crafted an excellent sound for himself and here’s a wonderful snippet from his latest album “Empty Seat on a Plane” . The track is called “Coyotes”
Festival time with Derek Bishop has he unveils new song “Baggage” at Folsom East Street Fair. It reminds me of a popped up battle theme from an RPG – I love it!
Higher Plain Music does love a bit of industrial folk music and that’s why we love its pioneer Jordan Reyne! Here is a live clip from a recent show in London I sadly wasn’t able to get to from her new album which we will be reviewing shortly. Vocal overdubs for the win!
We love all the different ways tune-yards can get us going. Here’s a wonderful edition of Fiya – in a shop!!!
Having been privileged to play a few sets before her once a few years ago in Essex, Cara Winter has returned with her third disc release which will be reviewed later. For now though feast of “Butterfly” which has been re-recorded for the new CD.
Enjoy a 15 minute concert with Soap&Skin with a string accompaniment! Heaven/Hell begins now… Click here for the Dutch Show
