DHRUVA KRISHNA-The Great Skedaddle (EP)

Check out these great instrumentals! Especially the covers of Willie Nelson’s Crazy and “Yesterday,” by the Beatles (which actually has vocals).

This is 1960s throwback music y’all. And if you like that, also check out his cover of Bob Marley’s No Woman No Cry, also below.

All free!


BARTON CARROLL-Avery County, I’m Bound to You

Avery County, I’m Bound to You, is the fourth album from singer/songwriter Barton Carroll, who built up a steady North Carolina fanbase when he used to play with Crooked Fingers. I can’t say I’ve heard his stuff before, but I love this record. It’s full of variety, extremely interesting music, and wonderful lyrics.

The bilingual country/folk single “It Had to be a Train” is as catchy as hell, but without relying overmuch on the chorus. Actually, it’s the accordion line that kept running through my head (ahem) like a train. All his songs are like that–like complex pop songs. Where most pop singers sell you on the hook, Carroll uses the hook as an anchor, or a jump-off point, while he drifts purposefully through themes and riffs off of that common ground.

I can’t praise this enough. Check it out.

Ane’s new collection of rarities includes It’s Alright (Baby’s Coming Back), From Me To You (originally by the Beatles), and a whole slew of duets and beautifully intimate originals. Check out the whole album, and here’s her cover of Beyonce’s “Halo:”
