Foreign Slippers - Old Ghosts

Foreign slippers (aka Gabrielle Froden)'s delicate, clear voice is well suited to the subtle reflective songs of life, love and death as shown by her EP "Oh Death!". Her new 13 track album "Farewell to the Old Ghosts" gives her the opportunity to demonstrate her talents to explore a much wider range of emotion and musical styles, many of which are distinctly upbeat in tempo such as in this song "Old Ghosts" and the exciting pacey single release from the album "Avalanche" which could maybe be described as "Folk-Pop" or "Nu-Folk". You can preview the new album here, and if you buy, must get the physical CD/download of the new album as Gabi is such a talented illustrator and the artwork is quite beautiful http://foreignslippers.bandcamp.com/ The excellent band are Phil Wilkinson (Drums), Russell Lee (Bass guitar), Phil Mawhinney (Guitar) and Ben Burns (Keyboard)

Music for a London Life

Music for a London Life | Music for a London Life | Scoop.it

Music for this London Life will feature absolutely anything that appeals!

 

Music that features London ..music that played in London ..that's played in London ..music by those that live in London ..lived in London ..were born here ..visited here ..died here ... and music that has nothing whatsoever to do with London ..it simply makes my London Life happy!

 

Enjoy the mix!

New CD Release: Luke Jackson - Tall Tales And Rumours

Luke Jackson - Lucy and her Camera produced by Raphael Klatzko - LightToneStudios

Ursula O'Reilly Traynor's insight:
I became acquainted with Luke Jackson's music some years back http://sco.lt/5IfluT and reviewed his second album Fumes And Faith (2014) here http://sco.lt/9Hh30j .He is still only 22 and his new album (due for release Nov 2016) continues to reflect his serious commitment and ever-growing fascination with the musical possibilities available to him. Life as we well know can be a serious affair and Jackson does not dodge the big issues. His opening track speaks of Glenn Campbell's struggle with Alzheimer's. It's a brave choice as an opener, its dramatic effect relying solely on Jackson's unaccompanied voice. It's powerful and arresting, a song that appropriately harks back to the rhythm of slave songs, given its subject matter. It reaches to your soul. Tall Tales And Rumours is primarily a dark album, shadowy, viewed through smoke-filled rooms rather than rose-tinted glasses. Jackson's intense delivery mainly focuses on familiar themes in well-known local settings, refreshingly viewed through knowing young eyes. Love's conundrums are more jauntily explored in Treat Me Mean, Keep Me Keen and in Leather and Chrome, unrealized dreams may strike a chord with many. 

Lucy And Her Camera is that rare beast, a love song with a happy ending! I have selected a Youtube Video from several years ago. Expect a much fuller, more rounded sound on the CD track.

“I’ll never forget you, you know!”


And I’ll see what you’ve chained to your sorrow

All your sheep and your lilies of snow

Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay

Take this waltz, take this waltz

With its “I’ll never forget you, you know!”
