A quick post about three new songs that I’ve formed a relationship with.
First we have T. Hardy Morris from Athens, GA and his solo debut Audition Tapes. I got to admit that I didn’t know the man before yesterday. Then I heard the title track of the new album and instantly loved it. I have a lot to learn, because I don’t really know his bands Dead Confederate and Diamond Rugs either. I’m gonna start with this solo album that seems to be wonderful and something that I need to add into my collection. Audition Tapes came out on Dangerbird Records july 30th. Here’s a video of T.Hardy Morris playing Audition Tapes.
Moving on to another new song addiction and to Edmonton, Canada. The Provincial Archive is a band that I vaguely knew, but hadn’t really properly paid attention to them. This changed when the excellent Canadian music blog Herohill.com wrote about their new single Common Cards. Such a great song and currently I’m in the process of introducing my heart to their back catalogue that seems to be just as good. Here’s Common Cards.
One Chord to Another favourite, North Carolinian singer-songwriter Jeremy Squires released a new song Open a few days ago. Jeremy added music to Lotte Kestner’s poem and again managed to create a magical piece of music. Jeremy’s new album When Will You Go will be released in October. It’s one of my most anticipated releases this fall. I’ve listened the earlier single Oblivious so many times that I’ve lost count. This is the new one Open.
