From The In-Box

A lot of new music arrived last week from across the Atlantic ocean. Mostly based on blues and folk roots but there was some real good stuff within. So let's start with an artist that impressed me much. Norine Braun, located in Vancouver, Canada. It's a wonderful mixture of blues/roots rock, influenced by Patti Smith and Nick Cave. If you think that this kind of genre is dying you ought to listen to her songs that live by her powerful voice that is close to soul. Norine is blessed with so much talent you won't find very often nowadays.

Another artist from Canada is William Kollin and his project Europa's Ocean. He describes his music with following words My sound is crafted with harmonically rich synth pads, strong piano melody and my goal is create ethereal sonic landscapes with supernal reverb and huge stereo delay. Mixing accoustic and electronic instruments to create a new nuance of deep atmospheric music. I am really not much in ambient music but this music fits to todays weather - cold and full of snow.

Terry Easton from Clearmont, California brings us back to the times when Leo Kottke was famous. It's a long time ago when I used to listen to finger style guitarists. He incorporate this techniques with bottleneck slide which yields a unique listening experience.

Scott Fab from Michigan showed up with an emphatic indie rock song that have everything a song should from this genre should have: a good melody, wailing guitars and a voice where you can feel the pain the singer must have.

I particularly enjoyed the Norine Braun tracks, her vocals reminded me of 'Rid of Me' period PJ Harvey.
