Shakkalo – grey sky, grey hair

(Single | 21/12/2022 | Cachalot Records)
On melancholic Celtic Folk, French-Polish artist Shakkalo present dark but warming sounds. The release „grey sky, grey hair“ is a two-track single that features two thoughtful ballads. First, ‚Wolfskin‘ is a cinematic Folk tune that addresses the abuse of animals, and the B-Side is an Ambient Folk track in honour of a deceased relative.

Ted & Alice Miller – Pretty Vacant

(Single | 21/01/2023 | Independent)
Without doubt, ‚Pretty Vacant‘ was one of the greatest songs ever performed by The Sex Pistols, but when Johnny Rotten sang „and we don’t care“ it sounded only partially credible. Almost half a century later that problem has been solved by Ted & Alice Miller from St. Helena, Nebraska since when Ted sings that phrase, you can really feel it. The duo’s first cover version is way more than just a revival of the Pistols classic.

Pierre Lecarpentier – Yesterday’s Melodies

(Album | 15/01/2023 | Independent)
Although social media profiles, press kits and further sources claim that Pierre Lecarpentier was from French capital Paris, he might as well be a visitor who travelled through time or who came here from outter space. Nevertheless, Lecarpentier has produced this 64-minute album that proves both theses. You may call this Prog, Folk, Pop or Rock, and you will always be right about this timeless release.

Ptolemea – Balanced Darkness

(Album | 20/01/2023 | Independent)
It is a human trait to seek balance, and thus light needs dark, warmth needs cold, or movement needs standstill. Luxembourg’s Ptolemea present a forty-minute display of „Balanced Darkness“ – a massive Pagan and Dark Folk epos to bring entropy to the four elements. And from beginning to end, it is a flawless success since this album is absolutely stunning.
