Scott Hirsch – The Sun Comes Up a Purple Diamond (2016)


After many years spent as a steadfast and inventive collaborator—not only playing bass and producing four albums with Hiss Golden Messenger, but in large part forging that band’s sonic signature—multi-instrumentalist, recordist, and audio engineer Scott Hirsch has finally made a solo album, and it’s called Blue Rider Songs.

Røde Mor – Hurra for Atomkraften


“Danish music/theater/art collective founded 1969 with the purpose of making “poltical, proletarian art”. The collective counted musicians, actors, writers and visual artists. The groups recorded music was written for plays or cabarets. The division of the greater collective that worked with music was also called “Røde Mor Rockcircus”. The line-up has changed over the years from the 1971 debut album to the 1976 final – and most succesfull – album, “Hjemlig Hygge”. Singer and composer Troels Trier may be seen as the groups leading member. Among those also associated with Røde Mor are Leif Sylvester Petersen and Erik Clausen.”

Trevor Sensor – Texas Girls and Jesus Christ (2016)


“On the EP’s opening title track, Sensor leads with the kind of quintessential folk riff that makes you feel as though you’ve been listening to this music all your life. Then his gravel-gargle voice kicks in, with echoes of Tom Waits, but a melodic sense that pulls him more towards David Johansen’s end of the spectrum. It’s a combination that’s impossible to turn away from, rooted deeply in musical history and as compelling as any rasp that’s come before.”
