Good morning, I hope you are enjoying the Easter break, if you have one. A suitably cheerful bunch of worms for you this week, in line with the holiday mood. Thanks to all and please keep contributions coming to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Heg and the Wolf Chorus – Three Sailors – AliM: An Earserpent. I saw HatWC recently – never heard of ‘em before, a multi-talented, theatrical folkie-ish band, based in Bristol. This may appeal to those of you with small children and/or those who like sea shanties – God Rest Ye Merry Sailormen! Niche, but fun.
Capercaille – Inexile – goneforeign: A bit of Gaelic for a change, Capercallie is the name of the Scottish grouse, the group is fronted by Karen Matheson with backup by Piruchi Apo Botupá and Paloma Loribo Apo, an aunt and niece duo from the island of Bioko in Equatorial Guinea. It’s from the Putumayo world music CD – Women of Spirit.
Busby Marou – All of You – deanofromoz: I’d never heard of this band, and then I saw them perform this on a TV show. I just had to have the album after that. Great folk harmony duo and this is their finest song in my opinion. And yes, yet another Aussie band from me.
Cee-Lo Green – Big Girls – tincanman: Cee-lo country? His new album draws from classic 70s TV, and this isn’t the strangest idea on it. But it is catchy.
Nils Frahm – For – glassarfemptee: I don’t normally use TV adverts to discover music. Hell, I don’t normally watch TV. But this ambient soundtrack to a BMW advert really bowled me over. Vorsprung durch Technik, indeed. Vroom!
Burl Ives – Mr Rabbit – AliM: It’s Easter. Everyone should have a bunny, even if it’s rather a strange one.
