Odds N Ends

Not done one of these for a while tending to push the odds n ends I stumble across weekdays over twitter here’s a few worth checking checking out or putting in your diary.









The Wrinkle Neck Mules have a new album due out Feb 21st, the bands fifth release is called Apprentice to Ghosts and will be released by Lower 40 Records, I’ll post some more info as soon as I get some, the Mules have a new website and a tune from the new album features in a US ad – only a snippet but sounding good.












Sharon Van Etten’s has announced her new album the release date for Tramp is February 7, another one to look forward to.

Lydia Loveless and Scott H. Biram have joined up for The Bad Machine Tour in the US and made a couple of mp3s available to enjoy.

Alejandro Escovedo “Street Songs of Love”

Taking advantage of the unseasonally fine weather of late I’ve been keeping fellow motorists amused with my impromptu performances – window down, arm hanging out the car keeping time on the door, singing (I use that term – loosely) at the top of my voice, maybe it’s all the sunshine but I’ve being playing a lot of turn it up loud rock ‘n’ roll stuff over the last few weeks, got a kick-ass mix tape based around some recent albums I’ve acquired on shuffle and repeat to beat the boredom out of the rush hour, in the mix are tracks from Drive-by Truckers, Paul Weller, Gaslight Anthem, The Whybirds, American Aquarium, Scott H. Biram, Lucero, The Famous, Peter Case and Alejandro Escovedo who’s latest album is a real cracker in my opinion and making a strong case for my end of year top ten, the album includes guest appearances from The Boss on the track Faith and Ian Hunter on Down in the Bowery, factor in Chuck Prophet’s contribution and production by Tony Visconti you know you’re on to a good thing – highly recommended solid start to finish, read the song-by-song liner notes here
