Listen another new song (rough mix) from the forthcoming second solo album “Oh No, I Love You” by Tim Burgess (The Charlatans), it was recorded with R. Stevie Moore.


“One of the tracks we had recorded was not running as smoothly as the others – a song called The Doors of Then. We’d tried it with a full band, stripped back and every which way. Apart from recording the album, the only other thing I’d wanted to do was meet up with R. Stevie Moore. I’d first heard his songs around five years ago and had spent most of the intervening time trying to listen to as many of the 400 albums that he’d made as possible. Me met over a takeout pizza and we got on like a trailer park on fire. I told him about The Doors of Then and the next day we recorded it with R. Stevie playing everything except the drums. It sounded exactly as I’d wanted it to.”

Listen :: Mother & Son, Molly & Nick Drake
(Spinning on Air, hosted by David Garland)





“While Molly Drake raised her two kids Nick and actress Gabrielle Drake during the 1950s, this sociable, beautiful, happily married woman wrote introspective poetry and delicate, melancholy songs, which she sang, accompanying herself on piano. Though she apparently had no ambition to publish or promote her songs, her husband recorded them on a home tape recorder for the family’s enjoyment. Sensitive and articulate, Molly Drake’s songs are, as Nick Drake’s original producer Joe Boyd recently observed, the “missing link” in understanding Nick’s music.” 


Molly Drake’s album which was released as a privately-pressed CD including a collection of poems by Molly Drake via Alimentation will be coming out via US label Squirrel Thing Recordings this summer.

Beachwood Sparks return with “The Tarnished Gold,” their first new album in 11 years, due out on June 25th via Sub Pop.

“The Tarnished Gold” is the work of the classic Beachwood Sparks lineup: singer/guitarist Chris Gunst, singer/bassist Brent Rademaker, singer/multi-instrumentalist Farmer Dave Scher, and drummer Aaron Sperske, with invaluable support from guitarist and longtime friend Ben Knight (The Tyde). For the sessions, the band expanded to seven pieces, with guitarists Knight and Neal Casal, with Dan Horne on pedal steel in place of Scher, who opted to play organ, key, flying V guitar and electrified melodica. Also lending a hand were Gunst’s wife Jen Cohen, Sparks’ very first drummer Jimi Hey, Brent’s brother Darren (leader of The Tyde) and L.A. indie-rock maestro Ariel Pink. Once We Were Trees producer Thom Monahan returned to his familiar spot behind the console. (Sub Pop)
