Alternative Friday

because great new music doesn’t always get the exposure it deserves

The five excellent tracks in this latest New Tunes post range from ferocious garage to soulful RnB via a bit of mellow folk, but which will be your favourites?

Dietrich Jon – Her
Describing themselves as playing “Symphonic Folkpop”, this is an excellent and lively track from Bloomington, Indiana band Dietrich Jon.


Saskwatch – Born to Break Your Heart
Saskwatch are a 9-piece soulful RnB band from Melbourne, Australia, who previously appeared in New Tunes #22, and this is another wonderfully enjoyable track which highlights their great horn and rhythm sections, plus the sweet vocals of Nkechi Anele. I can also vouch that they’re superb live too!

Mourning Birds – Eve of the Isle
They first appeared last November in New Tunes #25 and if you like a bit of garage inspired punk rock then you should love this upcoming second single from Kent band Mourning Birds.


Charlie Cooper – Needs Must
Combining an excellent 60’s soul and jazz sound, along with terrific vocals, this is a great track from Manchester based singer Charlie Cooper.

Chris King & HR – Salt of the Earth
Following on from the outstanding track “True” which was in New Tunes #23 and my Best of 2013 show, this is another gem from the Welsh singer-songwriter Chris King.
