My Latest Novel – Sneaker Sister Sneaker Soul

From the outskirts of Glasgow, Scotland come My Latest Novel, a four-piece hell-bent on tearing down the walls of folk and indie rock. With a melange of instruments in every song including violins, xylophones, and the use of samples, their music is constantly shifting from theme to theme. The band name seems incredibly fitting, as each song changes within itself, establishing a story line and vascillating moods as a good story does. Each album seems to be a new novel of sorts. With only two albums under their belt, My Lates Novel has tons of room to grow and can be expected to do so. Check out their song “Sneaker Sister Sneaker Soul” off their 2006 release Wolves below Read More…

Cotton Jones – Up A Tree (Went This Heart I Have)

Fans of Page France have been wondering for years what happened to the band after suddenly quitting with very little warning. Well your search is over. Cotton Jones (formerly known as The Cotton Jones Basket Ride) have been making music since 2008 and have advanced from releasing EPs off of Ann Arbor-based Quite Scientific Records to currently being signed to Suicide Squeeze. Blending psychedelic folk with indie rock (and some clear baroque influences for you classical fans out there), Cotton Jones is the epitome of hippie music. Like The Mamas and The Papas after a Saturday morning wake and bake, they make some of the most relaxed and peaceful music out there. Check out “Up A Tree (Went This Heart I Have)” off their 2009 Suicide Squeeze debut Paranoid Cocoon below.
