Saturday Night In The Boiler Room

It might be too hot to seriously consider dancing but this set from Ewan Pearson live in The Boiler Room in Berlin throbs and chugs and could cause your feet to start twitching ever so slightly. Free download. Meanwhile, I am off to a party in car park.

Stubborn Love

Once upon a time American alt-country was all the rage and I lapped it up, or some of it. Then it seemed the bands were ten a penny and I got bored with it. But I found this recently by The Lumineers, who I’d never heard before, and have been going back to it. The playing is good, nicely sparse, and the combination of the different vocalists- nice bit of hollering- and the cello is really lovely. Recorded live in session last year.
