    • Premiere: The Funs - 'Cross Kisser' September 4, 2015
      Dirty, rotten scoundrels...The Funs come from the nowheresville, USA, a cute couple with a deliciously evil sound. Skewed indie rock with a minimal vibe, The Funs released their debut album back in 2013. A sleeper success, Kim Deal was evidently a fan and invited the duo to open for The Breeders on a full American tour. The band's second album will be r […]

      Planet Mu toast two decades of innovations...Sometimes the real taste-makers aren't the ones who shout the loudest, and Planet Mu are a perfect example of that.

The band have a lengthy discography, one that recalls moments of The Cure, Radiohead or even Arcade Fire. An expansive sound, yet also a humane one, Balthazar have just announced a new […]
    • Clash DJ Mix - Jody Wisternoff September 4, 2015
      Bristol legend toasts Anjunadeep...When Bristol's Jody Wisternoff first caught attention he was a precocious teen, a living emblem of the tirade of energy rippling through hardcore. One half of Way Out West, the producer has gradually evolved, staying ahead of the game which broadening his sound and softening his approach. In almost continual demand bot […]
    • Swim Deep - 'Namaste' September 4, 2015
      Starring Paul Daniels!Swim Deep are due to release second album 'Mothers' on September 25th, but ahead of this the group have lined up a cheeky single.

    • Premiere: Life Is Better Blonde - 'Follow Me' September 4, 2015
      Melbourne producer with an oddly forward-thinking aesthetic...Melbourne-based producer Life Is Better Blonde emerged earlier this year. Debut cut 'Mine' matched R&B with forgotten voices, the swirling sound seeming to coalesce from half-remembered sounds. Beautifully hazy, the producer is now set to match this on 'Follow Me'. A beauti […]
    • Carhartt WIP x Oddisee September 4, 2015
      The rapper will make an appearance in-store.Carhartt WIP has a bold history of collaborative projects, with sartorial hook ups including A.P.C., Patta and RetroSuperFuture (see here, here and here for the full story).

    • Cut Ribbons - We Want To Watch Something We Loved Burn September 4, 2015
      An energetic and enthralling debut LP...If you're going to name your record something as provocative and immediately striking as 'We Want to Watch Something We Loved Burn', you'd better have the songs to back it up. Luckily for Welsh quintet Cut Ribbons, songcraft is their forté, and their debut has been anticipated for a reason. The band […]
    • The Clientele - Alone & Unreal: The Best Of The Clientele September 4, 2015
      A shimmering surface, but much more beneath...Like Galaxie 500 before them and Beach House in the present, The Clientele have perpetually - and unjustly - been tagged with one the laziest, most trite of critical platitudes: the one-trick band. While that label really is rather ill fitting, the career-spanning retrospective 'Alone and Unreal: The Best of […]
    • Premiere: Enjoyed ft. FEMME - 'Dreamboat Lover' September 4, 2015
      Check it out now...Enjoyed is the work of Peter Evans Pritchard, a 24 year old dreamer who bases himself in a small Hampshire town.

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.

Twitter: @SunshineRiot

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.
