Effortlessly stylish, L.A. Salami - real name Lookman Adekunle Salami - is capable of turning heads before he even goes onstage.
Recently opening Burberry's Christopher Bailey S/S show in Hyde Park, the singer has a striking, timeless look all of his own. It's something which feeds directly into his music.
L.A. Salami has a smooth, soulful voice with all the dexterity of jazz - think Terry Callier or, more recently, Michael Kiwanuka. Ultimately, though, the Londoner sounds like himself. Imbuing each track, each recording with a zestful sense of joy, Clash is able to premiere new cut 'Day To Day (For 6 Days A Week)'.
Taken from new EP 'The Prelude' - out now - 'Day To Day (For 6 Days A Week)' is a deft, brisk piece of songcraft.
Displaying admirable control, you can check it out below:
Snowapple are three young women from Amsterdam who sing sweet harmonies and play a large collection of instruments, all delivered in a quirky, unique and beautiful style.
Their new single, California will be released on 06 October 2014 through Debt Records and is the perfect blend of fairytale pop and dreamy folk. The single is taken from their forthcoming album, 'Illusion', which is due for release on 3 February 2015.
Louis from Debt Records: "The three young women of Snowapple have done a lot of living, more so than many bands twice their age. Beneath the surface of this, at times, unassuming Dutch trio is a tangle of experiences and musical educations, which come together to create a unique yet wholly natural sound. New single California marks their first steps into a more psychedelic landscape, inspired by their last tour of the USA."
Tom James is a rarity. At just 22 years of age, he’s already developed the virtuoso acoustic guitar chops and mature song writing skills of someone 20 years his senior. Dropping jaws on stages at the prestigious Pret a Diner in both London and Berlin, touring two summers of major British festivals, performing stage-front at Holland’s Surfana festival, and even touring successfully off the back of his first EP, 2011’s Green & White, he’s accomplished an astounding amount in a very short period of time.
For the first time since its original release, Grass-Tops Recording and Gnome Life Records bring you the reissue of Robbie Basho's 'Art of the Acoustic Steel String Guitar 6 & 12' album (circa Windham Hill, 1979).
This reissue was remastered by Joe Churchich and Kyle Fosburgh from the original master tapes, with careful attention paid to preservation and enhancement of the original analog qualities and tones of the recording.
Here is the link to the soundcloud page featuring two, 30 sec samples from the remastered album. Also, below is a link to our recent live Basho release, featuring four live performances of tracks from the record.

Country is being re-born…(Ward-Thomas are)…fresh artists with country influences and the dexterity to create a credible home grown version of the music – Sunday Times Culture
Following the release of their debut album ‘From Where We Stand’, which debuted in the Top 20 of the mid-week album chart the day after it’s release, entered the iTunes Country Chart at No.1 and has sat at the top of the OCC Country Artist Album Chart for 5 weeks, Ward Thomas announce their third single, ‘Way Back When’, out on October 20th.
With previous single ‘Push For The Stride’ having already garnered a Radio 2 A-listing, the arrival of their debut album in July was preceded by an appearance on BBC Breakfast News as well as interviews and features in the Sunday Times Culture, The Times and The Independent. In Autumn 2014 it is increasingly apparent that Ward Thomas are going from strength to strength, charming and beguiling all before them and heralding a new age for Country Music in the UK. They are on the threshold of becoming one of the first genuine major British Country acts.

I stumbled upon Crombie’s work via a YouTube channel searching for covers of Jackson C. Frank. I was completely blown aways with his version of Kimble. I soon realised with his alternative guitar tunings and gentle fingerpicking he had something that all us fingerpickers search for. Music that fits perfectly into the 1960’s / 1970’s folk scene era but somehow today feels fresh and new.
