    • Phase Zero
      Morgan Delt's first jam bore the hallmarks of '60s psych so thoroughly that some thought it was unearthed from the post-Woodstock era. Drenched in psychedelia, Phase Zero is dripping with dreamy sounds that ooze from your speakers' pores like day-after LSD sweat.
    • Mon Roi (My King)
      My King is a film about love as an individual experience.

      Absorbing sounds in a tranquil valley...For one weekend in August a tranquil valley in the Brecon Beacons is transformed into Green Man, a music festival that just might be the best around.

With cosmic camp-fir […]

    • Breakdown: Jordan Mackampa - 'Open Arms' August 24, 2016
      Moving new track examined...Rising talent Jordan Mackampa has a fastidious approach to his art. Nothing is released until it is perfect, until it matches his own high standards - so new cut 'Open Arms' is just a bit special. A slice of folk, a dash of soul, Jordan Mackampa fuses a number of ingredients together to get a sound that is wonderfully fr […]
    • Mr. Mitch x Yamaneko Pair Up As Yaroze Dream Suite August 24, 2016

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.
