Friday Folk Flashback

“Seasons” – Kate Burke and Ruth Hazelton

New Music Monday – 23rd September

Georgia State Line

Devendra Banhart – “Taking a Page”

“Taking a Page” is taken from Devendra Banhart’s brand new album Ma and is once again a piece of quirky pop music from the freak folk singer-songwriter. The song skips and jumps over a funky baseline with stabbing synths and subtle guitar pieces. It’s weird and twisty, with some strange strange lyrics, but I think you’ll really like it.

Freya Josephine Hollick – “Nobody’s No Better Than No One”

Freya Josephine Hollick has just dropped “Nobody’s No Better Than No One”, the first taste from her upcoming 2020 album The Real World. The track features Hollick confidently swaggering her way through a bluesy, country-rock piece of art that feels like it could have been ripped from the 70s or 80s. Freya Josephine Hollick’s is absolutely on point and her ability to leave space for the driving melody is inspired. Great stuff.

Georgia Knight – “Samba Baby”

“Samba Baby” is the new single from Melbourne singer-songwriter Georgia Knight. The languid track feels like a hot summer day, with a soothing melody that slips over a lazy samba beat, punctuated by the occasional fuzzy guitar. Knight vocal style is reminiscent of singers like Roy Orbison or KD Lang, the perfect accompaniment to the sultry tone of the track.

Georgia State Line – “From Down Here”

Melbourne Americana band Georgia State Line released their brand new single “From Down Here” at the end of last week. The single manages to fuse the heartbreak and melancholy of country music with an upbeat, catchy melody. And then there’s Georgia Delves’ amazing voice – what a talent!

“This track is my antidote to life’s more challenging moments,” Delves explained. “We all, at one point or another, find ourselves on paths that we don’t necessarily want to be walking. It takes a lot of strength to accept the process as it is, and trust the greater plan. A lemons-to-lemonade situation, really.”

Hannah Acfield – “Searching (for more)”

Melbourne based singer-songwriter Hannah Acfield released her soulful new single and video “”Searching (for more)”. The single highlights Acfield’s incredible voice which powers through the track and is filled with so much emotion. I love the choppy electric guitar here and the way the song builds with it’s dirty drums, bass and organ.

Hannah Acfield is heading out on tour this October – dates are below:

Saturday 5th October – The Dusty Attic, Lismore, NSW
Sunday 6th October – Junk Bar, Brisbane, QLD
Wednesday 9th October – Folkswagon, Cafe Lounge, Sydney, NSW
Friday 25th October – The Wesley Anne, Melbourne, VIC

Musketeer – “Wolves”

Europe-based Australian troubadour Musketeer sent over his new single “Wolves” which he promises is the folkiest from his upcoming EP The North Sea, due next year. The single is inspired by the idea of wolves repopulating Scandinavia and has a really epic, nordic feel with heavy drums and droning vocals. Musketeer has really leant into the bigger sound of his four piece band for this track and the result is huge.

Pieta Brown – “Bring Me”

Last week Pieta Brown released her S. Carey (Bon Iver) produced new album Freeway. The latest single from the album is the Dylan-esque ballad “Bring Me”. I love the way that Brown bends her vocal style across the simple acoustic strumming of “Bring Me”, adding a depth and resonance to the song. Beautiful stuff.

Wallis Bird – “Life Is Long”

“Life Is Long” is the new single from Irish singer-songwriter Wallis Bird’s new album Woman, due for release this Friday 27th September. The track mixes the quirk of a Bjork song with the pop sensibility of someone like Sia, all the while staying true to the authenticity of Wallis Bird’s unique voice.

Friday Folk Flashback

“Hurt” – Johnny Cash

New Music Monday – 16th September

The Crooked Fiddle Band

Emma Russack & Lachlan Denton – “Love For Myself”

Indie singer-songwriters Emma Russack and Lachlan Denton have announced the return of their collaborative project with their new single “Love For Myself” and an album titled Take The Reigns which is due for release on the 18th October. “Love For Myself” is a sweet pop song with a catchy chorus and smile inducing melody.

“My songs from Take the Reigns stretch over a polar period in my life,” says Denton of the upcoming album. “The earlier were written in the midst of a new relationship. I was excited, over emotional and insecure. The others were written after the loss of my brother. The record for me is full of light and shade. I see Emma’s songs on this record as covering a similar spectrum.”

Lucas Laufen – “A Million Miles From Love”

Australian troubadour Lucas Laufen has released his gorgeous new single “A Million Miles From Love”. The track teams Laufen’s fingerpicked guitar, subtle vocal style and ambient accompaniment to build something that is beautifully melancholy.

“A Million Miles From Love” is taken from Lucas Laufen’s upcoming album I Know Where Silence Lives which is due on the 6th December.

Sarah Humphreys – “Quiet Heart”

Central Coast based singer-songwriter Sarah Humphreys released her powerful new single and video “Quiet Heart”. I’ve always loved Humphreys’ songwriting and amazing voice and it’s great to see her really using both talents to full effect here – I’m digging her alongside the full band sound. “Quiet Heart” will appear on Sarah Humphreys’ upcoming album Strange Beauty which is due in October.

The Crooked Fiddle Band – “Counter Errorism”

Oh it’s good to have The Crooked Fiddle Band back. No one does high energy, folk infused instrumental music quite like the Sydney based four piece, and their new single “Counter Errorism” does not disappoint. The track is an ecelctic, high energy mix of time signatures and tones, leaping from gypsy jazz fiddle to etherial vocals to deep bowed bass lines, all puntuated by The Crooked Fiddle Band’s crunchy, rhthmic sound.

“Counter Errorism” is taken from The Crooked Fiddle Band’s upcoming album Another Subtle Atom Bomb due this Thursday 19th September. They also have a bunch of live dates coming up – check them out here:

Friday 27th September – Bar Open, Melbourne, VIC
Saturday 5th October – Rhythm Hut, Gosford, NSW
Friday 18th October – Smith’s Alternative Bookshop, Canberra, ACT
Saturday 19th October – Steampunk and Victoriana Fair, Goulburn, NSW
Friday 1st & Saturday 2nd November – HOBOFOPO Festival, Hobart, TAS
Saturday 30th November – Baroque Room, Katoomba, NSW
Sunday 1st December – The Landsdowne, Sydney, NSW

The Maes – “Sunrise”

No one is writing contemporary Australian folk songs quite like The Maes. “Sunrise” is another example of just how talented The Maes are, from their deeply visual storytelling songwriting through to their beautiful harmonies and arrangements. They just keep going from strength to strength.

The Milk Carton Kids – “The Only Ones” & “I Meant Every Word I Said”

I can’t believe this week we got not one, but two new tracks from Americana harmony duo The Milk Carton Kids. “The Only Ones” and “I Meant Every Word I Said” are the first tasters of The Milk Carton Kids’ upcoming album The Only Ones, due on the 18th October and as expected they’re just stunning.

“The Only Ones” is an upbeat love song with a driving beat and more than a few nods to classic country, while “I Meant Every Word I Said” slows things down to the type of melancholy ballad we’ve come to expect from the duo.


Timothy Blackman – “By The River”

Wellington based singer-songwriter Timothy Blackman released his sparsely beautiful new single “By The River”. The track is a beautiful piece of indie-folk reminiscent of Bright Eyes or early Sun Kil Moon, all plucked guitar and vocal layers.

“By The River” is taken from Timothy Blackman’s new album Brightest Days which is due for release today.

Friday Folk Flashback

“Needle of Death” – Bert Jansch

New Music Monday – 9th September

Ainsley Farrell – “Dark Spell”

“Dark Spell” is the new single from Sydney based singer-songwriter Ainsley Farrell. The track captures Farrell’s vulnerability as a songwriter and couples her unique vocal style with electric guitar and a driving rhythm section.

“I wrote “Dark Spell” about losing yourself in a relationship and becoming someone you’re not to appease the other person,” Ainsley Farrell explained. “It’s about taking on the heartbreak of two people.”

Ainsley Farrell self directed the video for “Dark Spell”.

“The idea for the video was to do all these mundane tasks like laundry and showering with different faces, and have the faces take over and consume me,” she said. “The magazine cut out of faces are meant to represent the part of you that’s lost I guess – it ended up being a lot creepier than I imagined.”

Ainsley Farrell will be supporting Asha Jefferies at Low 302 in Sydney on the 21st September.

Bobby Alu – “Fire”

Roots singer-songwriter Bobby Alu recently debuted his new single “Fire”. The sunny track sees Alu pulling from numerous influences, including reggae and soul, to create a sound that’s bound to put a smile on your face.

“”Fire” is about good flow,” Bobby Alu explained. “Searching inside yourself to find the courage to push your energy into things you love. Instead of finding discomfort and fear, you find power and fire. I love these moments and when I started writing this song I was searching for that fire in myself again. This made me realise when this type of feeling comes by, it’s time to strike and make most of the goodness.”

“Fire” taken from Bobby Alu’s newly announced album Flow which hits stands on the 18th October. He’ll also be heading out on tour with Busby Marou in October and November:

Friday 25th October – The Tivoli, Brisbane, QLD
Saturday 26th October – Venue 114, Sunshine Coast, QLD

Saturday 16th November – Ettamogah Hotel, Kellyville Ridge, NSW
Friday 22nd November – The Jack, Cairns, QLD
Saturday 23rd November – Kirwan Tavern, Townsville, QLD

Catherine Traicos – “And I Ran”

Celebrated folk singer Catherine Traicos has just released her brand new single “And I Ran”, the first taste of her upcoming album Nobody Could Hear Us to be released on the 25th October. The song’s slightly unconventional chord progression melds wonderfully with Traicos’ sweet if somewhat haunting voice.

“When I wrote this song it was just the music and that unconventional structure that presented itself in about three minutes in someone’s living room, on a borrowed guitar that hadn’t been played in so long the tuning had gone down a tone,” Catherine Traicos explained. “I sat with the song for ages, trying out different lyrics and structures but nothing felt quite right. And then I put it away for almost a year!

“Then there was a definite point of change in my life where I was able to sit back and be angry and that is when most of the songs came together. I feel that often when things are bad you are just engulfed by them and often they can be so bad that you bypass and can’t process emotion. So when I finally wrote the song I was in the post bypass state of utter fury at events, at certain people and mostly at myself. But the piece just couldn’t work as an angry song no matter how much I tried to push it in that direction. I latched onto the amazing bliss that was also concurrently present in my life (go reality!) and wrote about that instead.”

Falls – “On Attack”

There’s a long history between LA based Sydney duo Falls and Timber and Steel. Last Friday they released their new single “On Attack”, their first in far too long. The track features Falls’ trademark harmonies intertwined through a driving, rhythmic melody that had me up and dancing.

“When the idea of home is illusive and you feel like you’ve lost your grounding, you sometimes find yourself clinging to people like life rafts,” Melinda Kirwin explained. “This song is about that moment when you realize that you’re not drowning, you can touch the ocean floor with your feet, and you can save yourself.”

There’s so much nostalgia on this track, I love it. “On Attack” is the first taster of Falls’ upcoming EP Bodega Rose, due in October.

Mark Moldre – “Josephine”

Americana singer-songwriter Mark Moldre has just released his new single and video “Josephine”. Taken from his 2019 album Fever Dreams, “Josephine” is a hypnotic, melancholic, dream-like track and the accompanying video plays up to this tone with strange, somewhat surreal visuals. This is very much modern, Australian Americana – more of this and less of everything else.

Michael Waugh – “Big Things”

No one is capturing the Australian experience at the moment quite like Michael Waugh. His storytelling songwriting style taps into something nostalgic but also delivers an emotional wallop. “Big Things” is not just about the “fibre glass fruit” that dots Australia’s highways, but instead anchors a primal story of growing up in the bush with the familiar archetypes of the Australian road trip.

“Big Things is about family – and the making of this video was a real family affair,” Michael Waugh explained. “My good friend Miguel Rios shot and directed – assisted by his partner, Meredith O’Shea. Though, the real stars are Meredith and Miguel’s kids. My favourite moment in the shoot was when Meredith gave them the direction to ‘look sad like an orphan for mummy’. I was rolling around on the ground laughing too much for the kids to adopt the required look of abandonment.

“The concept was about these kids recreating the family car trip to see the big things of Australia. They use whatever is at hand – coat hangers become the harbour bridge, the fruit bowl raided to create the big banana, teddies duct taped onto the couch to be back seat passengers. Like the goldfish, temporarily displaced so the bowl can be used as an astronaut helmet, two little kids swim around the house – playing out the memory of that family trip. Because in another part of the house there are other big things happening.”

Michael Waugh is currently out on tour – his upcoming dates are below:

Saturday 14th September – The Palais, Hepburn Springs, VIC
Saturday 21st September – Sandy Point Music Club. Sandy Point, VIC
Friday 4th October – Oodies Café, Bundaberg, QLD

Saturday 16th November – Humph Hall, Sydney, NSW

Saturday 23rd November – Burke and Wills Winery, Heathcote, VIC
Saturday 30th November – By the Banks Festival, Albury, VIC
Wednesday 11th December – The Lomond Hotel, Melbourne, VIC

Montgomery Church – “I Was Young When I Left Home”

Folk and Americana duo Montgomery Church have delivered a stunning cover of Bob Dylan’s “I Was Young When I Left Home” for their latest single. Stripped back to just voice, guitar and dobro Montgomery Church make the song their own. I particularly love the moments of vocal harmony punctuated by James Church’s slide playing – really beautiful stuff.

Nathan Power – “Sparrow Song”

I really like this live version of Nathan Power’s new single “Sparrow Song” courtesy of the Shoelace Sessions. The Bluegrass-folk instrumentation of guitar, bass, fiddle and mandolin perfectly accompanies the song which makes some really interesting chordal twists and turns which still staying very true to the genre.

Nathan Power is currently touring the new single – see the upcoming dates below:

Friday 13th September – Guildford Family Hotel, Guildford, NSW
Saturday 21st September – Tumut River Brewing, Tumut, NSW
Sunday 22nd September – Old Bus Depot, Canberra, ACT

Wednesday 2nd October – Lomond Acoustic, Melbourne, VIC
Saturday 2nd November – Blue Bean Love, Hepburn Springs, VIC
Friday 8th to Sunday 10th November – Bendigo Blues and Roots Festival, Bendigo, VIC

Robert Cini – “Different Road”

Far North Queensland roots singer-songwriter Robert Cini has released the very summery sounding “Different Road”. The track is toe-tappingly catchy but also has a really personal message around what it feels like to be “different” from the mainstream.

“Anyone that feels a little different and out of place, or has life a bit tougher than normal, I think will relate to this song,” Robert Cini explains.

“Different Road” is taken from Cini’s brand new debut album Imaginary Fun which was released last week.

Sam Buckingham – “Real Life”

Singer-songwriter and Timber and Steel favourite Sam Buckingham returns with her gorgeous new song “Real Life”. Buckingham has a knack for writing beautiful acoustic folk songs with catchy choruses and deep lyrics, and “Real Life” is yet another example of her skill.

“This song feels like the fruits of a long inner journey,” Sam Buckingham explains. “I’m kind of just reporting back on some big things that I’ve felt and learnt over the years.”

Sam Buckingham is heading out on tour this October – full dates are below:

Friday 4th October – Junk Bar, Ashgrove, QLD
Saturday 5th October – Dusty Attic, Lismore, NSW
Friday 11th October – Low 302, Sydney, NSW
Saturday 12th October – Smith’s Alternative, Canberra, ACT
Friday 25th October – Wesley Anne, Melbourne, VIC

The East Pointers – “Wintergreen”

“Wintergreen” is the gorgeous new song and video from Canadian folk trio The East Pointers. The song combines the group’s trad-inspired instrumental style with an expansive indie-folk songwriting approach they began to dabble in with their 2017 album What We Leave Behind. The video for “Wintergreen” elevates the song with a stunning AUSLAN dance performance from Emma Watkins.

The East Pointers have announced their new album Yours To Break, which will feature “Wintergreen”, will be released on the 25th October.

The Teskey Brothers – “Paint My Heart”

I feel like we feature The Teskey Brothers every week, but I reckon that’s because they’re releasing some amazing music at the moment, especially since the release of their new album Run Home Slow. “Paint My Heart” is The Teskey Brothers in epic soul mode, from the With-A-Little-Help-From-My-Friends like opening, the slow build towards the double time jam long, right up to the drawn out vocal finish. This is not music for the Spotify generation where you avoid the slow burn or extended instrumental to stop the audience from skipping – this is music that revels in itself and its influences. Delightful.

Vetiver – “To Who Knows Where”

Nu-folk stalwarts Vetiver released their amazing new single “To Who Knows Where”, taken from their upcoming album Up On High which is due on the 1st November. The Nick Drake-esque track is a lush, dreamy song which very much draws you in and wraps you up in warm blanket of folky goodness.
