Check It Out #13 (03/02/16)

1. Revolution - Novah
Swedish based group, Novah return with their latest single 'Revolution'. After releasing 'Robot', a track that received international support, last year; they immediately started focusing their minds on a debut EP 'Alaska', set for release this spring. Enjoy this beautifully atmospheric track, one of my favourite current indie rock tracks out there!


2. Dogs - Bird Dog
This is the latest track to be released from emerging LA-based band Bird Dog's debut EP 'Misty Shrub', which has recently been released. Maxim (vocals, guitar), Tyler (guitar, vocals), Eric (bass, vocals), Colton (percussion, keys, vocals) and Justin (drums) are currently supporting Ryan Bingham on tour, and have announced performances at SXSW sonf Bottle Rock Festival in the next few months. A big year for Bird Dog! 


3. Nightcall - LCV Kin Choir
Kin Choir is 'London Contemporary Voices' louder, lairier little sister', born in Autumn 2014. They've hosted major concerts and projects at venues including Somerset House, Trafalgar House and Kensington Gardens. Here they are with a beautiful live cover of London Grammar's 'Nightcall' with echoing harmonies reminiscent of Enya, a stunning solo from Corinne Shields and the introduction of beats from BeatFox leads into a powerful section too. Enjoy!! 


4. Mystery and Wonder - Blitzen Trapper
Portland, Oregon rock quintet Blitzen Trapper are back with a new three-track EP 'Mystery and Wonder' and a Europe tour this month (Feb' 2016). The EP features the band's own version of traditional tune 'I Am A Man of Constant Sorrow', which they were asked to record specifically for US TV show Fargo. The lead track is a catchy tune, perfectly crafted and a wonderful showcase of not only the bands music but for the rest of the genre too! 


5. Heard Good Things - Julian Taylor Band
Julian Taylor Band, a Canadian group, continue their mission aiming to contextualise soul music not as another genre defined by racial precedent or sound requirements but as a medium that speaks to the soul. The new music video for 'Heard Good Things' was shot in one take and features cameos from some of Toronto's finest artists; Thompson Thompson Egbo Egbo, Jordan Alexander and Ross Hayes Citrullo from The Commoners. Kick back, tap your feet and enjoy these infectious funky guitar riffs and beats.
