Mike O’Neill – Wild Lines & Matt Paxton – How The Land Lies

February 4, 2014 § Leave a comment

Before digging deeper into the sounds of 2014, these two older releases have to mentioned. These beautiful things have been out there for a few years, but I only bought these a little over a month ago. Both of these have been in a really heavy rotation and my last.fm already shows over 150 plays for both artists.

Mike O’Neill – Wild Lines (2012)

I didn’t really know who Mike O’Neill was when I was browsing the Zunior Boxing Day sale, but he did look like a nice chap and there was also a cat on the cover. And well you know that I love cats. So I took a little risk and invested 4.88 CAD for Mike O’Neill’ solo album Wild Lines (2012) and that risk really paid off. This turned out to be a magnificent pop album. Some of it reminds me of Emitt Rhodes and that’s never a bad thing. I need to do investigate further, because this is just the kind of pop music that I love.

Matt Paxton – How The Land Lies (2011)

Another one that makes it harder for the 2014 releases to reach my head & heart. Today I was again planning to listen to some new music at work, but while browsing the iPod before starting I saw the cover of Matt Paxton’s 2011 release How The Land Lies and I just couldn’t go over it. So instead I listened to this for the next few hours. I look forward to hopefully hearing some new music from Matt Paxton this year, because this sure is a great folk album (and the 2012 singles on Other Songs Music are also gorgeous). How The Land Lies is available on his Bandcamp (name-your-price). This is Charlotte (My Wild Valley Wind) .
