FLW Playlist

 

Neànder

Neànder (Through Love Records)

Bleak sonic soundscapes that also shine with waves of melodic passages making this a compelling debut album for German band Neànder.

 

No Cactus

Jackdaw (Cutthroat)

A superb collection of alternative country that sees it’s main players more than happy to sit in the shadows and let the songs do the talking.

 

Introducing…Danny “O” & The Astrotones

Danny "O" & The Astrotones (Witchcraft)

More than rockabilly, in fact, quite a bit more as this is rock ‘n’ roll with blues, garage and punk thrown in as well and ending up with an assured debut album.

 

One In A Million

Twisted Rod (Rhythm Bomb)

Twisted Rod has certainly done it again and produced a whirlwind of rockin’ rockabilly and rock ‘n’ roll with current album ‘One In A Million’.

 

Southern Bred: Mississippi R&B Rockers Vol.4

Various Artists (Koko Mojo)

There’s not a dud track to be had here as the various artists selected for ‘Southern Bred: Mississippi R&B Rockers Vol.4’ maintain a high level of quality via a mixture of blues and rhythm and blues.

 

In Constellation

West My Friend (Grammar Fight Records)

There’s much to take in during West My Friend’s new long player and it’s all good!

 

Southern Bred: Mississippi R&B Rockers Vol.5

Various Artists (Koko Mojo)

Another volume and another successful formula of blues and rhythm and blues as far as ‘Southern Bred: Mississippi R&B Rockers Vol.5’ goes.

 

Flux

Rachael Dadd (Memphis Industries)

Societal and environmental issues feature during Rachael Dadd’s latest album that is also rich in musical experimentation.

 

Sweet Thing

Bonita & The Blues Shacks (Rhythm Bomb)

It’s certainly a mixed bag of styles that flows throughout the album ‘Sweet Thing ‘and therefore offering something for all blues and rhythm and blues supporters, but when the traditional route is given some airtime, then it’s where Bonita & The Blues Shacks truly shine.

 

The Ragtime Wranglers – ‘New Spark Boogie / Free Ballin‘

The Ragtime Wranglers (Homebrew Records)

The Ragtime Wranglers and this double-sided single, they wake up the neighbourhood with good reason because this is rock ‘n’ roll worth getting excited about.
