Reviews

Gigs

“If Woodford is too far away for you, or a little too folk heavy for your liking, then Falls Festival Marion Bay is a perfect alternative which still gives you a lot of similar experiences yet has a personality and style all of it’s own” – Part 1 of KTBell’s Falls Festival review. Review here

“Traveller & Fortune choose the right instrumentation for the song. Even if only six notes are played on a xylophone or the harmonica only makes a single appearance across the entire set, their inclusion on the songs is perfectly placed makes dragging them all the way to Sydney worthwhile. The way Traveller & Fortune layer their songs is just masterful”Gareth Hugh Evans reviews Traveller & Fortune at FBi Social in Sydney. Review here

Friday Folk Flashback

“Raglan Road” – Glen Hansard and Colm Mac Con Iomaire

Glen Hansard is in the country at the moment, supporting Eddie Vedder and performing his own shows so I thought it might be nice to share this video of he and The Frames bandmate Colm Mac Con Iomaire performing the Irish classic “Raglan Road”.

New Neil Young Album Tipped for March

Neil Young

The word on the street is that Neil Young will be releasing his next album this March. The album, titled A Letter Home will be released via Jack White’s Third Man Records and will be, according to the Third Man web site “An unheard collection of rediscovered songs from the past recorded on ancient electro-mechanical technology captures and unleashes the essence of something that could have been gone forever”.

Sounds very interesting! Other details about the album are scant with the blogosphere offering up little more than speculation at the moment. As soon as we know more we’ll let you know!

Reviews

Gigs

“I had all these grand plans of mingling with the musos (many of which I had only met via email), snaffling a few beers from the green room rider and even trying to conduct a few between set interviews. But those plans disintegrated as soon as I was planted in front of the stage – the music had captured me and just wouldn’t let me go. The alternating two-stage setup of JamGrass probably contributed to keeping me front and centre with the only downtime between acts to change the lighting and for JamGrass founders Jason Taylor and Pheobe Preuss to introduce the next band. All I had to do was turn 90 degrees to face the next stage and let the music take over”Gareth Hugh Evans reviews the JamGrass Music Festival. Review here

“While Texture Like Sun had the people on their feet and in an entranced, reflective daze, with Mark Pearl’s scruffy voice that sounds as though he’s permanently waking up from a deep sleep, Patrick James brought people to the floor, cross legged and huddled with friends, cosying into the old granny chairs and throw cushions that give FBi Social that garage hang out feel. While Texture Like Sun brought an intensity and severity to the room, Patrick James lit it up with youth, hope and longing, singing melodic tunes harmonized by Scotty and Kurt Smith”Lil Mercanti reviews Texture Like Sun and Patrick James at FBi Social in Sydney.

Friday Folk Flashback

“London Danny” – Jez Lowe

The version of this song I’m probably most familiar with is from the 1995 Fairport Convention album Jewel In The Crown. I’m so happy I came across this live video of the song’s writer, Jez Lowe, performing at a house concert – I love how you can hear the audience singing along in the background. This is the folk experience.

Neil Young and Crazy Horse To Tour Australia

Neil Young

Neil Young has been touted by many as a possible addition to next year’s Bluesfest lineup, and while he’s yet to be added that’s not going to stop him visiting our shores next March. Coming off the back of two 2012 albums with Crazy Horse, Americana and Psychedelic Pill, Neil Young will be touring nationally from the 2nd March next year.

The full list of dates is below – tickets are on sale on the 19th November:

Saturday 2nd March – Perth Arena, Perth, WA
Tuesday 5th March – Adelaide Entertainment Centre, Adelaide, SA
Thursday 7th March – Brisbane Entertainment Centre, Brisbane, QLD
Saturday 9th March – A Day On The Green @ Bimbadgen Winery, Hunter Valley, NSW
Sunday 10th March – Sydney Entertainment Centre, Sydney, NSW
Friday 15th March 15 – Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne, VIC
Saturday 16th March – The Hill Winery, Geelong, VIC

While the dates don’t line up exactly with any major festivals (Young is touring New Zealand straight after which is pre-Bluesfest so should rule him out of contention) we’re still hoping he hangs around the southern hemisphere long enough to make an appearance at at least one of them.

Another New Neil Young & Crazy Horse Video, “Twisted Road”

Neil Young

Neil Young and Crazy Horse’s new album Psychedelic Pill came out last week and yet another video from it has surfaced online. At 3:36 “Twisted Road” is one of the shorter songs on the album and its video features vintage footage of Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison and The Grateful Dead.

Watch “Twisted Road” below:

Interviews

“Before I came to Australia for the first time Chuck Ragan, who’s a friend of mine and we’ve toured together a lot, had been telling me Australia was the promised land for touring – it’s this amazing place, everyone’s very cool, the shows are great and you get treated well. It reached a point where he’d been going on about this for such a long time that I almost wanted to call him on his own shit. So he took me to Australia for the first time and he was right – Australian audiences have been really really good to me, have always been welcoming and had a good time, got involved and danced and sang along. All the things a performer would want from an audience”Frank Turner chats to Gareth Hugh Evans. Interview here

Friday Folk Flashback

“Sydney From a 747” – Paul Kelly feat. Uncle Bill

Paul Kelly’s new album Spring and Fall is released today (see above) and Uncle Bill will play JamGrass this weekend. Sounds like the perfect excuse to post my favourite track from their collaborative album Smoke.

New Neil Young and Crazy Horse Video, “Ramada Inn”

Do you have a spare 17 minutes? Because that’s what you’ll need to set aside to watch the lastest video from Neil Young and Crazy Horse, “Ramada Inn”. Taken from the upcoming album Psychedelic Pill (which is filled with tracks of a similar length), “Ramada Inn” features archival footage and psychedelic imagery.

Check out the video below:

“We’ve had such an incredible response from bands that played last year and new bands wanting to be part of it and the audience from last year. The amount of support and private emails from those that were at JamGrass 2011 have been so encouraging. People definitely want more of this. That has given us the confidence to expand to a two stage, two day format.

Friday Folk Flashback

“Our Town” – Iris DeMent feat. Emmylou Harris and Jerry Douglas

I remember hearing this song over the final episode of Northern Exposure in the 90s and thinking “I have to own that”. Beautiful.

New Neil Young & Crazy Horse Video “Walk Like A Giant”

Neil Young on Letterman

If you’re a night owl or Internet addict you may have noticed Neil Young wearing a particularly Australian t-shirt on Letterman the other night. Australian touring company Love Police are claiming via their facebook to have given Young the Aboriginal flag t-shirt so they’ve got to be feeling pretty chuffed right now.

Neil Young is right in the middle of promoting his new double album with Crazy Horse, Psychedelic Pill, which is due for release on 26th October (details here). Neil Young & Crazy Horse have just released the aptly psychedelic video for the albums closer “Walk Like A Giant” which you can watch below:

Interviews

“I can’t explain to you how nice it is to be able to play new material on the road. It renews the live show for me as a writer and a performer. Just by virtue of having more material you can sort of excise from the set material that was sort of dodgy before that you had to play because you had to play a full show. I really feel like now I play shows where I completely stand behind every song”Joe Pug chats to Gareth Hugh Evans. Interview here
