Recorded soley on location, Waiting Rooms is kinda like a musical field recording of Rooms designed to be sat in on a tempoaray basis.
The River's Edge is a mythical place. A scene of tranquillityor the start point of a journey. Nothing stays the same. Lifepasses by. The river widens then retreats. The River's Edge doesn't exist...
The album oozes with confidence as Nev takes his low barritone vocal into new areas and - dare we say it -
even breaks into song!
MONKS ROAD SOCIAL
Dr Robert’s “Lost In Rasa” is the first mesmerising release from the unique and groundbreaking Monks Road Social.
Coming on like a long lost cousin of Marvin Gaye’s ‘Trouble Man’ mixed with Fred Neil’s narcotic folk, it soars with the heart wrenching strings of Ben Trigg, leaving you breathless, elated and ever so slightly joyous.
THE SEVERED LIMB -
From busking with washboards to recording racous rock in pub basements. The Severed Limb are the opitome of DIY & one of the coolest looking bands I know
Born and bred in Brixton, the new album is the point at which punk and skiffle meet and make people dance to a pub-punk rock that’s defiantly outspoken.
Fittingly titled, Waiting Around is the fruits of melodic craftsman, John Stammers’ labour. a record of stark beauty and enduring quality - delayed only by an unyielding sense of intrepid experimentalism
Waiting Around fuses the great Brit folk-jazz traditions of Nick Drake, Bert Jansch, Davy Graham, with further-flung sounds of Gene Rains, Eden Ahbez, Moondog and Sun Ra.
'IRON IN THE FIRE'
Former Coral guitarist Lee Southall demonstrates quality songs and intricate guitar work on his debut solo project.
These richly atmospheric tracks are soaked in the dramatic climate of the Yorkshire Moors; from the endless Summer days of childhood to the darkness of gathering storms.
Incorporating the squiggles and squelches of vintage analogue synthesizers and the breaks and beats of old library & soundtrack LPs, J -Walk returns with an album of lo-fi vibes reminiscent of the recent Francis Bebey or William Onyeabor reissues bought into the 21st century with that classic J - Walk sound.
THE MONK'S KITCHEN
Hermit-like probably describes The Monks most acutely, melancholy and weathered and bearded also. Yet musically, these traits somehow intertwine with a refined, textured, close-
to-nature, autumnal vibe - these three monks are harmoniously dishevelled in both character and verse.
Music From The Monks Kitchen LP
7" Shake (Sam Cooke Cover)
I first saw Simon Lord perform the song Space Hawk upstairs at the Gladstone Public House (R.I.P) in Borough and as the final chorus sang out so did the audience.. Since then Simon has always had a special place on the WONDERFULSOUND Roster.
2 LPs in I always have space for a new Simon Lord record in the catalogue
