By Larry Lootsteen

Artist: Magic Carpet Factory, “Feel the Magic

Album: Feel the Magic

You may have noticed I am not one to pass by a little dirty guitar work now and again!

Sounds like:  A transition from Depeche Mode to blues and back

Link/Listen/Watch:

 

Artist: Potty Mouth, “Damage”

Album: N/A

This all-female band is far too much a rarity – and worth checking out!

Sounds like:  A well-worn and loved guitar

Link/Listen/Watch:

 

Artist: Frett, “Marbles On The Stairs”

Album: EP1

I am an absolute sucker for those jazz influences and this has that in spades.

Sounds like:  Beck and jarring guitar

Link/Listen/Watch:

 

Artist: Arbor Lights, “Post-Rock, Paper, Scissors”

Album: Arbor Lights

It’s been a long time since I’ve seen a great instrumental.  These guys are worth your time.

Sounds like:  Saturday morning after the Friday night, watching the sun rise

Link/Listen/Watch:

 

Artist: Those Amongst Us Are Wolves, “The Speed of Life”

Album: On the Moors

This is another classic slow-build piece of beauty.  Stare at a glass of wine.  Candle light.  Look up and see her. Ohhhhh. Then gone.  The chase is on.

Sounds like:  Calm, then panic

Link/Listen/Watch:

 

Artist: ArtClassSink, “Time to Go”

Album: The Occupant Theory

This 4 piece from Oxford is really impressing me.  This is their first single.

Sounds like:  That ache that just won’t go away
