The Great Magnet – Small Town Tuesday: Country Folk With a Contemporary Kick

Small Town Tuesday is the Great Magnet’s first debut single, yet their sound contains the synergy of a band decades older, their debut was released early February 2018, since then they haven’t hung around they’ve released another 3 sensational tracks. But there is something beguilingly fascinating about the bands first release. Perhaps it’s the perfectly angular jangle of the Alternative Rock Folk guitar, or maybe the contemporary Country Pop vocals which resonates so succinctly over the high vibe rhythmic instrumentals.

The lyrics to Small Town Tuesday is sure to resonate with anyone who has felt the bitter grips of mid-week monotony when you just can’t shake the anticipation for the weekend. After listening to the trio’s latest hit ‘Pine Box’ It’s clear that they’ve sticking by the sound that saw them into their inception. I can’t wait to hear a full album from this contemporarily spectacular Folk outfit.

Anthony Dante – On The Line: Acoustically Angelic Alt Country Folk

Folk Singer Songwriter Anthony Dante has just released his new single On The Line. If you’re a fan of Ray LaMontagne and Jack Johnson, you’re going to want to check it out.

On The Line is a tentatively paced, melancholy uplifting acoustic masterpiece. To create the track Dante dabbled within Folk, Alt Country, Americana and Blues to create an ethereally sensation melody. His acoustically angelic sound is one that demands nothing from you, but offers you everything, On The Line is the kind of track you can just slip into and appreciate the beautiful discord of his vocals against the jangling harmony of his guitar.

On The Line is just one of the tracks of Anthony Dante’s latest EP Mountain Songs which was released in February, 2018 which the Washington DC based singer songwriter will be taking on tour across America throughout 2018.

You can check out On The Line along with the rest of his stunning EP on SoundCloud using the link below:

Another Restless Night for Two Penny Blue

Whilst many bands are concerned with just where they fit in to the intricate jigsaw of music genres, there are bands who just seem to follow a less fashion dictated path, one that results in them making music which seems to fit into a more general description of just making music. Simple, honest and free of the burden of expectation. Two Penny Blue are just such a band and Restless Night is just such a song. They have developed a strand of rootless country-folk that seems to owe as little to Nashville as it does the folk-rock machinations of fellow Brits Mumford and Sons. Instead they have threaded favourite musical references through their own sonic creations to create a word of western hemisphere, mid Atlantic, roots-pop music. Imagine that?

Maybe in a world where everything has become sampled and plugged in, tuned up and rinsed of anything organic, it is time for bands such as Two Penny Blue to fight back, reconnect with something oak-aged and tangible, analogue and accessible. And if you like the sound of that they have a cracker of an album named Let’s Say which you must check out.
