Kiran Leonard
Dear Lincoln

Here’s some strident indie-folk business from Kiran Leonard, a big-voiced singer-songwriter with a mournful voice but quite energetic arrangements. It's on Hand of Glory who also did that ace Mary Epworth single the other week. I’m particularly enjoying the B-side ‘Port-Aine’ where Le...view item »


The Outdoor Types
Jangler Swifteye/ I Am A Steeplejack

Outdoor Types: 'Jangler Swifteye' 7" (Hand Of Glory) Debut release on this new label, continues the vogue for all things folk with a voice and fiddle led ode. Kinda reminds me further on of the melding of a anthemic post-punk outfit like The Alarm crossed with someone like Johnny Flynn and The Sussex Wit. One part folk with a dash of stadium r...view item »

Christmas Joy In Full Measure

Christmas Joy In Full Measure is a compilation of Christmas tunes from twelve very different artists. Offering an original alternative to the usual Christmas music dross, this compilation features disparate styles – from pop and prog, disco and punk -- a dark and dystopian Fall-esque track particularly stands out. Finally, a ...view item »

Mary Epworth
Snow Queen

It's the middle of winter, so it's only appropriate that our favourite psych-pop pin-up Mary Epworth brings out a 7" of snow-themed delights. On the A side there's 'Snow Queen', which is led by a lilting 6/4 harpsichord line which is kind of a cross between 'Take Five' and 'Golden Brown'. The vocals are breathy and reverbed and layered in harmon...view item »

Mary Epworth
September

We’re rather fond of leftfield indie dreamboat Mary Epworth here at Norman Towers and felt kind of bad when release schedules conspired to not give us a chance to review her ‘Dream Life’ LP when it came out. She’s got a new stand-alone 7” single out this week though so we get to ...view item »

Kiran Leonard
Bowler Hat Soup

Boyish new crooner Kiran Leonard brings out his debut LP of sentimental singer-songwriter psychedelia this week on Hand of Glory. A writer of heartfelt songs with a bold, plangent delivery over a widescreen bedroom-indie backing, Leonard has, at the tender age of 18, come up...view item »


Mary Epworth
Dream Life

With a love of vocal harmonies that stun and freeze, whether they're from the oeuvre of the Beach Boys or found in traditional folk songs, Mary Epworth's music draws on musical intuitions like psych and pop and attempts to update them for a contemporary landscape. Dream Life is sort of hazy, but it's abou...view item »

Mary Epworth & The Jubilee Band
Lean/ Black Doe

Our Brian was smitten with Mary Epworth & The Jubilee Band’s previous 7” and I concur that something fairly unique was happening there. For the follow up single ‘Black Doe’ Mary’s vocal is a little more sultry to begin with, but nonetheless powerful. The band are in full on folk rock mode, building layers of banjo, fiddle and fuzz to crea...view item »

Mary Epworth & The Jubilee Band
The Saddle Song/ Sweet Boy

Mary Epworth and the Jubilee Band next. This is a cool little 7" that blends a triumphant folk-ish female lyric with a pumping brass band backing to make a really sweet pop tune. The closest comparison I can muster is mid period Beatles crossed with a more grounded Abba! It's a little like 'Being For The Benefit of Mr Kite' with perhaps the la...view item »
