Album: O.B. Howard – South of Our House

O.B. Howard = Husband-wife indie pop duo from Rhode Island, USA. Sweet dreamy, catchy melodies and captivating vocals. From the first track, you will fall in love with these melodies. I recommend you go through all tracks, but especially In The Light. Another great Bandcamp album worth of your time. A perfect fit for your weekend thorough listening. It is a bummer it was not released in any physical format, especially on cassette. I wish I had more space on my label…

Album: Richy Mitch & The Coal Miners – Subliming

I have written in the previous feature about track Moment, that I am excited about the newest album. The album is here and I am even more hyped. A mixture of modern American folk music with indie rock is working very well for me. I recommend you save an hour for these 10 amazing tracks and give them a proper listen. You will not regret it. There are so many tiny pieces of music you can discover in these tracks. Worth listening over and over.

The only thing that makes me sad that this release is not a physical release. It deserves it.

Album: Guidon Bear – Downwardly Mobile: Steel Accelerator

“Olympia songwriter Mary Water (Little Red Car Wreck) combines with Pat Maley (Lois, Courtney Love) and E. Michael Bradley to create power-pop songs about real-life nightmares, boot camps, late bills, and scraping by.”

I am a fan of Antiquated Future Records. They have a really nice collection of local-ish artist from Northwest Coast. Cassette labels were always bringing so many great bands to Bandcamp and I am very thankful for this. I think that small cassette labels are the most crucial part of the whole indie scene.

Album: Last of the Iron Lungs – Last of the Iron Lungs [EP]

Finding artists on Bandcamp was always my favorite thing to do. Especially artists that are from Europe (from Scotland to be specific in this case). The songs are very lively, very energetic. Especially huge fan of the third track “Silk”. The lyrics are so catchy that you want to sing along after second hearing. I hope this artist gets bigger so I will be able to see him/them live in central Europe, maybe even Slovakia.

Album: Rapt – Within Thrall

I love vocals and instruments in this album, especially the title track “Girl In Black” caught me. I do not know very much about the artist but I am kind of bummed that I have not heard of him before. I will be revisiting these few songs for some time. This album would be a perfect fit for Fox Food Records roster, if they were still active. I am so pleased to find another great folk music project from Britain. Folk scene in Britain amaze me very much. Give this short album try and feel the British land in it.

Album: Goodwill, Good Will – Goodwill, Good Will [EP]

Are you fans of roster on Run For Cover Records or Topshelf Records? I am a huge fan. Goodwill, Good Will would fit there perfectly. This 4-track EP from last year contains great tracks that have to sound awesome live. If you are fan of harder music, you will dig this very much. I just wonder why it is not released on tape…

Album: Covey – Dog& Bone [EP]

Covey is a folk rock project fronted by British multi-instrumentalist and vocalist, Tom Freeman, who moved to USA for school, specifically Boston.

It’s cold and rainy May in Slovakia. You want to just wrap yourself in blanket and not to go outside. What you also need is music that will capture this atmosphere. Covey’s music is a perfect fit for this mood. Both tracks are beautiful and I am excited to dig deeper to his collection of music.
