    • The Little Festival Returns To Old Street July 29, 2016
      Summer Double on Old Street Roundabout If you are passing Old Street roundabout in East London on Saturday the rumble of house and techno music in the background is being generated by The Little Festival. The event returns this weekend taking over two venues for daytime rave on the roundabout and then a party into the early hours   After four sell out shows […]
    • Hozier On New John Varvatos Collaboration July 29, 2016
      Irish singer to help spearhead Autumn/Winter range...John Varvatos has always had a close relationship with the music world. Perhaps it's that idea of kindred spirits – mavericks lingering on the outside, inspired by, but slightly at odds with, the world around them. Back in 2005 the designer opened a flurry of collaborations with musicians, including p […]
    • Viola Beach - 'Boys That Sing' July 29, 2016
      Poignant animated clip...Viola Beach were just getting started on their music journey when their voices were suddenly silenced. The group died tragically earlier this year, sparking a wave of mourning that seemed to include every star in the night sky. A self-titled album of demo recordings, full studio sessions and more has been pieced together by the band […]
    • Listen To De La Soul Discuss Their New Album July 29, 2016
      From a recent event at Sonos Studio in London...De La Soul always sought to go that little bit deeper. One of the most original and idiosyncratic acts to emerge from hip-hop's golden age, the group's playful lyricism was allied to a magpie-like ability to search out the perfect sample. Now they've decided to sample themselves. Yep, frustrated […]
    • Ed Scissor & Lamplighter - Tell Them It's Winter July 29, 2016
      A wonderfully individual offering...The anomaly in the High Focus box of crackerjacks makes the ever-accelerating UK imprint as savvy as it is consistent and loud. Ed Scissor and Lamplighter are the solemn servants savouring the bitter chill of lost hip-hop, championing the outsider, huddling around a waning fire while hearts pull downwards. Scissor’s contin […]
    • Official Prince Tribute Concert Announced July 29, 2016
      It will take place in Minneapolis...An official Prince tribute concert will take place in Minneapolis on October 13th. The show will be organised by the iconic performer's family, and will utilise the city's U.S. Bank Stadium. Performers have yet to be confirmed, but we'd imagine there's a very long line of talented people eager to salute […]
    • Listen: Daniel Avery To Re-Work Beyond The Wizard's Sleeve July 29, 2016
      Drifting, airy, late night fare...In case you missed it, Beyond The Wizard's Sleeve released their debut album 'The Soft Bounce' recently and it was inspiring, lucid, mind-expanding fare. Psychedelic without falling into any of the cliches, Erol Alkan and Richard Norris included heavyweight electronics in their sonic palette. Two new remixes h […]
    • Premiere: Adam F x Kokiri ft Rae - 'Harmony' July 28, 2016
      Drum 'n' bass legend meets the new breed...Adam F is one of the foremost voices in drum 'n' bass, someone who has adapted their own unique style to passing innovations. One of the ways that he has achieved this is by seeking out new talent – talent such as rising producer Kokiri. Together, the pair have constructed 'Harmony', a […]
    • Track Of The Day 28/7 - Stevie Parker July 28, 2016
      'The Cure'There's something quite un-placeable about Stevie Parker. Maybe it's the way she carries herself, or perhaps a quality to her voice. Whatever it is, it keeps people coming back for more. Still remarkably young, Stevie's packed out performances at Field Day and Latitude created an astonishing online buzz. Debut single ' […]
    • Teenage Fanclub - 'I'm In Love' July 28, 2016
      Shot in Edwyn Collins' studioTeenage Fanclub have always maintained a close association with their native Scotland - try as they might, they just can't escape Caledonia's magnetic pull. New album 'Here' arrives on September 9th, and it's billed as a typically classy offering from some of the best songwriters around. Which, if we […]

Five Cool Ones: Five Artists that Follow The Falcon’s Nest on Twitter

Posted by falconi5 on February 10, 2014

twitterOne of the great things about social media is the ability to expose yourself to musical acts from all over the globe. Some new, some old, and  lot that might be new to you but have been around for while. Every artist you encounter on your journey may not be to your liking, but the joy is in the journey. Here are five of our favorite musicians that are following us on twitter.  Thanks for the follow.

Jamestown Revival

One of our favorite new finds with a sound right out of Laurel Canyon. Check out the song “California (Cast Iron Soul)” from their recent Conan appearance. Move over Mumford and Sons, Dawes, and The Avett Brothers.  There is a new cosmic cowboy in town.

The Repeat Offenders

The Repeat Offenders are a Post Punk band with attitude and energy to spare. Picture Oasis with a little bit more of an edge, and you have the sound scape for this fine up and coming new band.

Love and a .38

If you sometimes are in the mood for some real old school Sunset Strip Rock & Roll, and who isn’t, Love and a .38 is the band for you. They can be found mostly in the Los Angeles area at The Whiskey, The Troubadour, or any number of those cool So. Cal haunts. Their new album will be out in a couple of months, so keep your ears peeled.  In the meantime to hold you over check out this fine Rock and Roll tune, “Rock ‘n Lola.”

Sunshine Riot

Sunshine Riot describes themselves as a Cash-Meets-Cobain Rock & Roll Band from Boston.  Check them out.  They deserve to be on your radar.

Pickering White

Breaking up the sausage fest a bit, we have Pickering White. Exquisitely fronted by Jennifer Pickering, the four piece band is an exciting blend of blues, country, Rock, and a little bit of soul. The vibe is retro cool, and on the excellent “Lady Blue Sky” a little bit of ELO comes out.  Not a lot, just a little bit. Also think Imelda May with a little bit of Lydia Loveless thrown in for good measure.
