    • Premiere: Haleek Maul - 'LOVE' August 4, 2015
      Young Barbadian rapper and producer returns...Haleek Maul first caught attention when he was just 15 years old. A rapper and producer from Barbados, he took time out of the limelight to finish school. Working on his new Prince Midas mixtape, Clash is able to bring you a quick sample. 'LOVE' is a gorgeous return, boasting production from Dubbel Dutc […]
    • Sundara Karma Write For Clash August 4, 2015
      Are clubs the new churches?Sundara Karma are young - scarily young. Still in their teens, the fresh-faced group have stormed across the summer, with new single 'Flame' set to be released on August 7th. Given a full vinyl issue by Chess Club, it's an energetic, ambitious statement from a band who seem to blossom with each and every show. Writin […]
    • Gwenno - Y Dydd Olaf August 4, 2015
      A charming, subversive debut...The last time a Welsh-language record made a significant impact on the UK's album charts was 15 years ago. It was Super Furry Animal's recently re-issued 'Mwng', an acoustic effort with political undercurrents. The debut LP from Gwenno Saunders (formerly of The Pipettes) is, on the surface, nothing like it. […]
    • Introducing... Love International August 4, 2015
      New festival venture for Croatia...The explosion growth of festivals in Croatia has presented fans with a vital new destination to soak up music during the summer months. Garden Festival got in there first. Launched in 2006 the event enjoyed ten astonishing instalments, moving from a 300 capacity party to entertain more than 3000 ravers by the Adriatic. Halt […]
    • King Midas Sound Launch Series Of Collaborative Albums August 4, 2015

    • Gary Numan & Tubeway Army - Premier Hits August 4, 2015
      Re-confirmation of a musical treasure...Depending on who's listening, Gary Numan is either an electronic pioneer-cum-pop genius or that bloke who made 'Cars'. With this lovingly restored re-issue, it's clear that the former is true. Originally released in 1996, 'Premiere Hits' covers Numan's early and (sorry Gary) most inno […]
    • Premiere: Marco Vella - 'Patterns' August 4, 2015
      From his new Kyle Jorgensen collaboration...Marco Vella needed a challenge. Scouring the internet looking for like minds, the songwriter stumbled across the work of visual artist Kyle Jorgensen. Re-invigorated, he allowed the artist's work to inspire him when re-working his material. New release 'Shadow Mountain' features seven tracks, each pr […]
    • Bis - I Love Bis August 4, 2015
      A welcome look back at pioneering indie...At the risk of sounding about a hundred years old, the concept of "indie music" means practically nothing these days. Indie is just another genre to be sold, a convenient shorthand for something with guitars that isn't rock. In the 21st century, it certainly doesn't correlate with the spirit of in […]

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.
