Lean’s pick – Haunt the Woods

If Jeff Buckley and Muse had a love child it would be Haunt the Woods. This is folky prog rock with some great lyrics. Haunt the Woods are a four-piece band from Cornwall. They released their debut album ‘Opaque’ on February 28th 2020. I picked ‘Elephant’ as one of this week’s bonus tracks to theContinue reading “Lean’s pick – Haunt the Woods”

In the Spotlight: The Postindustrial Poets

The Postindustrial Poets are Brits living in Luxembourg. They spent years playing covers and blues before recording their own material in 2019. I spoke to their main poet about music and lyrics. But first, some facts about the Poets. They sing songs that tell stories and always use four note chords. They follow the songsContinue reading “In the Spotlight: The Postindustrial Poets”

Lean’s pick: Marathon – Amelia

This song isn’t in one of the Cool submission playlists. It might not even be indie, because they have a record label to distribute the upcoming album for retail. Nevertheless, this song has me hooked ever since I first heard it about a month ago. It’s 10 minutes of pure progressive rock. I’ve added itContinue reading “Lean’s pick: Marathon – Amelia”

In the spotlight: Bryan Robinson

According to the bio on his website, Bryan Robinson (UK), would never win the lottery. Simply, because he doesn’t buy lottery tickets. However, he is a lucky winner after all, because he has earned this week’s spotlight! So purely hypothetical, if he did win € 10.000 in a lottery to spend on anything music-related. HowContinue reading “In the spotlight: Bryan Robinson”

Just a review: The Summer Wind (Kristy)- Morningside Lane

Morningside Lane is a four-piece indie rock band. They dropped their debut album ‘These Are Our Years’ early September. They had previously released a couple of EP’s. When I first heard ‘The Summer Wind‘ it sounded vaguely familiar, but I was unable to pinpoint why. It started to make sense when I later read whereContinue reading “Just a review: The Summer Wind (Kristy)- Morningside Lane”

On his Spotify profile he is described “as a six-string slinger who conjures up otherworldly West Coast cowpunk with gritty vocals backed by raw, shock inducing sounds erupting from his SG”.

Lean’s pick – Masquerade – Josephine Pascoe

Josephine Pascoe’s song Higher Funktion has been in the Top 20 for a couple of weeks now, but she has released more songs, like Masquerade. So far this song hasn’t made into the Top 20, but I feel this song deserves a spot in the chart. Every time I listen to this song, I discoverContinue reading “Lean’s pick – Masquerade – Josephine Pascoe”
