It’s hard not to get carried away with the rhythm when you listen to Walking With Elephants new EP. Three great songs with wonderfully uplifting bluegrass-inspired folk indie. I think all three songs are just as good, so it was hard to choose only one. You can listen to the other tracks on their Soundcloud page.
Excuse the little break this week, but now I’m back again, and I and others will continue to present great music on this page. And I think it’s perfect to start with Moose Trail. We have written about Ulf Ljusberg before, and this time we see him in the company of Tobias Thun in Moose Trail, a band they have continuously developed beside their other projects.
In 2005 they released an EP, and now they are following this with the release of the song “Oh Lord”, which you can listen to here below. And I wouldn’t mind if this country and americana inspired music, with a nice touch of Nick Cave’s darkness, would lead to a full length album. According to plans, they will have Moose Trail have it’s live debut in the near future. To keep yourself informed of this, you can visit Moose Trail’s Myspace page, where you also can listen to more tracks.
I hope find it as great as I to start the Saturday with nice and well-played country with influences from bluegrass, blues and pop. Well, Americana could be some kind of overall description. Little Green is the name of the band and they have just released their debut album this month “Crossing Lanes” (Rootsy), and below you’ll find a couple of tracks from the album.
They offer a wide spectrum of songs, from pure country-pop tunes to bluegrass to more bluesy tracks. Great melodies and it feels rather soft, where the nice laidback vocals set a comfortable mood in most songs. It’s a quintet of skilled musicians and they mix a range of instruments into the arrangements, which feel really elaborated. I also like the fact that they give som space for these solo instrument parts, small pearls that take the songs up one level, with for example brilliant guitars, mandolins, harmonica, and fiddle.
