    • Peace - Hammersmith Palais, London - Skullcandy May 24, 2015
      A select group of people were royally treated to a combination of one of Britain’s most exciting young indie bands and a nostalgic night were one of London’s most famous former venues was reincarnated for one night only.
    • Goldsmack - Wild Season May 23, 2015
      Goldsmack are a trio from an isolated part of Italy, and there is a palpable sense of desolation about the music on this debut EP.
    • Brandon Flowers - The Desired Effect - Virgin EMI May 20, 2015
      The Killers' frontman pays tribute to his 80s influences on impressive second solo album.
    • Pale Honey - Pale Honey - Bolero Recordings May 17, 2015
      Pale Honey (Tuva Lodmark – guitar/vocal and Nelly Daltrey –drums) at first hearing sound like kooky trying-too-hard hipster fodder.
    • Ady Johnson - Thank You For The Good Things May 13, 2015
      "This sound is just a pop song, I can never say all I wanna say." There's a lot of thoughts swimming around the self-critical ocean of Ady Johnsons mind
    • Chilina Kennedy - What You Find In A Bottle May 13, 2015
      Broadway star releases debut album. Transferring from stage star to successful recording artist is not always easy.
    • We Are The City - Violent - Sinnbus May 10, 2015
      First impressions are always tricky anything can affect an initial judgement: the time, the place the mood the tiniest thing can influence the reaction.
    • Terakaft - Alone - Outhere May 10, 2015
      ...the result can hardly be less than magical. And so it proves – from the opening rhythms and chants to the last fade this is a magical trip into the deeps.
    • Callaghan - A History of Now - Absolute May 9, 2015
      Double take as this writer was sure that he had slotted the new Callaghan album into the CD player not Kacey Musgraves. However after Crazy Beautiful Life, Callaghan’s own identity comes to the fore.
    • Charlie Barnes - More Stately Mansions - Superball Music May 9, 2015
      Take a title from a Kurt Vonnegut short story, influences from Edith Piaf to Mew and have your album produced by Steve Durose from Oceansize, and the result could be a pretentious cacophony.

    • Premiere: Port Isla - 'Ready For The Fight' May 22, 2015
      Download it now...Port Isla are already making waves. Lauded by BBC Introducing, the band's songwriting – crisp, buoyant, epic yet humane – has enraptured fans.

    • In Conversation: Hiatus Kaiyote May 22, 2015
      Multi-dimensional, polyrhythmic gangster steez...Hiatus Kaiyote are having the least relaxing of post-show experiences. They're in Austin, Texas - having just completed their set at Banger's (a restaurant famed for its selection of 30 homemade sausages) that's been taken over by P Diddy's TV company. The super tight level of security make […]
    • Their Library: Peter Broderick May 22, 2015
      Literary influences explored...Peter Broderick is a songwriter of rare, rare depth.

    • Hot Chip - Why Make Sense? May 22, 2015
      Impressive new album...Art is autobiographical, a snapshot of the moods and feelings of the artisan at a particular point in time. New albums, new EPs, new singles - they offer a telling glimpse into the psyche of band or artist. If it's true that music is a facsimile of the self, then the history of Hot Chip is writ large in the singles that paved the […]
    • Will Young - 85% Proof May 22, 2015
      Soulful versatility with the tunes to match...It's hard to imagine Will Young was especially thrilled when former label RCA opted to conclude a cash-in compilation of his work to date with an execrable cover of 'The Long And Winding Road' in partnership with Gareth Gates and orchestrated by Simon Cowell in the immediate aftermath of their time […]
    • Track Of The Day 22/5 - Waylayers May 22, 2015
      'N2U'Waylayers craft the kind of pop which makes you dream of the future. The East London trio have an artful way with electronic production, a hazy, gauzy recipe just right for summer.

    • Next Wave #639: Sunflower Bean May 22, 2015
      Desert-scorched psych trio..."We all like Velvet Underground, Black Sabbath, Nirvana - ya know, all the good stuff!" Sunflower Bean's grungy, pyched-out rock patiently stews in maxed out reverb and heavy riffs as they pay homage to their rock 'n' roll gods. Growing up moshing in an underground music scene in Brooklyn, the band stress […]
    • Drenge - 'Running Wild' May 22, 2015
      Directed by Ed Lovelace...Drenge have a ferocious yet uncomplicated sound. Oddly, though, the group tend to translate this into entrancing, powerfully poetic visuals. Clash previously spoke to the duo, asking Drenge to talk us through each of their videos – find that feature HERE. Now, Drenge have unveiled the clip for 'Running Wild'. Directed by E […]

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.
