    • Premiere: The Wealden - 'Blue And Gold' April 27, 2015
      Quiet, hushed yet powerful songwriting...The Wealden revolves around just two people, two musicians. Crafting something sparse yet wholly effective, the duo seem to utilise space almost as an instrument in itself. Debut EP 'Rushes' will be released on April 20th, with the duo set to play a London show at 229 on May 14th. Ahead of this, Clash is abl […]
    • Premiere: FooR ft. Damien Murdoch - 'Attention' April 27, 2015
      Because it's Monday...FooR is a group of clubbers, raves, producers and DJs from the South Coast. Set to erupt this summer, the four piece collective have spearheaded two mixtapes. RwD is an old skool UK garage mixtape, hosted by none other than MC Alasdair of Artful Dodger. In contrast to this, the group are also plotting the FooRwd tape featuring bran […]
    • Whole Life Story: Passion Pit April 27, 2015
      Michael Angelakos talks - PLUS, brand new video...Passion Pit were never meant to last this long, to progress this far. Fresh from releasing new album 'Kindred', the project initially began as a belated Valentine's Day gift from songwriter Michael Angelakos to his then-girlfriend. Since then, the singer has been thrust awkwardly into the limel […]
    • Premiere: The Vestals - 'Dear Happiness' April 27, 2015
      Gorgeous visuals...The melody and melancholy – that's The Vestals. Sure, the band's music sounds outwardly gorgeous, but take another glimpse at those lyrics, the downcast nature of so much of their material. New EP 'Life Without Love' makes sadness sound effortlessly evocative, with the group's dream like synths fluttering past sigh […]
    • Premiere: Arctic Lake - 'Only Me' April 27, 2015
      Beautiful new track from the London newcomers...These things take time. Arctic Lake aren't ones to rush things – after all, their songs seem to unfurl at their own pace, slowly pacing themselves in delicate abandon. The London trio have only placed one song online thus far, with 'Limits' displaying an enormous sense of grace. Fragmented electr […]
    • Wolf Alice Announce Massive Shows April 27, 2015
      Brixton Academy date confirmed...All of a sudden, Wolf Alice seem to be breaking through. Debut album 'My Love Is Cool' will be released on June 22nd, with the band set to play a number of prominent festival slots. Returning to headline duties in September, Wolf Alice have now confirmed plans for a series of massive shows. Opening in Bristol on Sep […]
    • Track Of The Day 27/4 - Yukon Blonde April 27, 2015
      'Como'Yukon Blonde no doubt seem to like newcomers to European audiences, but the band's roots in fact stretch back almost a decade. Initially formed as Alphababy, the band's sound – strident indie rock with flecks of synth pop – has brought them enormous acclaim in their native Canada. New album 'On Blonde' will be released on […]
    • Jamie xx - 'Gosh' April 27, 2015
      Plus, 'In Colour' tour announced...Jamie xx is set to release debut album 'In Colour' on June 1st, with lead track 'Gosh' already gaining firm support. With its rave MC samples and hardcore influenced percussion, 'Gosh' is a fragrant introduction to a hugely anticipated album. Erik Wernquist has stepped in to oversee t […]
    • In Conversation: Clark April 27, 2015
      "I'm not sure I want everyone to like my music..." When Chris Clark's seventh album came out, we raved about it (in the literal sense, and using words as well). Recorded in a Lincolnshire country barn, it took a fistful of the icy UK weather outside and splintered it into geometric shards of techno and drone. Closely following that, the W […]
    • Refused: Not F*cking Dead, After All April 27, 2015
      New album 'Freedom' arrives on June 29th...Refused virtually re-wrote what a punk band could achieve musically, pushing post-hardcore into further, more exploratory realms. Splitting up in somewhat acrimonious circumstances, the Swedish band wrote a famous note which opened: “Refused are fucking dead...” Well, that's not quite true. Following […]

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.
