  • Sons of Fathers - "Hell and Back" (video) (Premiere)

    Emerging Americana band Sons of Fathers continue their ascent with the new video "Hell and Back".

    Sons of Fathers blew out the doors of Nashville's Mercy Lounge last year at the Americana Festival. We sat up close, totally taken by the band's passion and musical chops. This Texas group brings the rawk to the twang in most winning fashion. So, it's perhaps not so surprising that influences like the Beatles, Bob Dylan and Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young cozy up with Texas singer-songwriters such as Robert Earl Keen, Willis Alan Ramsey,…

  • Roy Harper: soundtrack of my life

    The singer, songwriter and guitarist on how Miles Davis and skiffle shaped his sound, dancing to Stephen Stills's overlooked 1972 gem – and the first time he met Jimmy Page

    Born in Manchester, folk-rock musician Roy Harper left home at 15 and began writing music inspired by his love of poetry. His 1966 debut album, Sophisticated Beggar, introduced the distinctive and complex style of songwriting for which Harper was to become renowned, leading to collaborations with artists including Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and Kate Bush. More recently, artists such as Fleet Foxes and Joanna Newsom have cited Harper as an influence. Last month, Harper released his first studio album in 13 years, Man and Myth.

  • Counterbalance No. 146 Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young's 'Déjà Vu'

    I'll light the fire. You put the flowers in the vase that you bought today. Staring at the fire for hours and hours while I listen to you play the 146th most acclaimed album of all time. A stone hippie groove from 1970 is this week’s Counterbalance.

    Mendelsohn: I'm of two minds when it comes to Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young's Déjà Vu. On the one hand, there is some top-notch song-writing and instrumentation on this record—just high-end, super slick, well-executed recording. On the other hand, I'm supremely annoyed every time Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young all sing at the same time. It might just be a consequence of production, since all four prime movers acted as producers. I imagine that none…

  • Treetop Flyers: The Mountain Moves – review

    (Loose)

    The debut album from Treetop Flyers – who named themselves after a Stephen Stills song – effortlessly captures the spirit of late-1960s west coast pop-rock: the Byrds and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. You'd never guess they were from London; perhaps the Transatlantic feel is partly down to having an American drummer, Tomer Danan, and recording in Malibu with Bert Jansch producer Noah Georgeson. British influences can be heard: there are hints of the Faces' or the Rolling Stones' swagger in Laurie Sherman's classic-rock guitar licks, and sublime opener Things Will Change dips into 1980s winsome indie. The curveball is singer Reid Morrison, a melancholy soul man, not unlike (gulp) a young Mick Hucknall, who invests these songs with throat-quivering emotion. And what songs they are – whether the Beth Ortonesque Houses Are Burning, or Waiting on You's stonking take on Peter Green-era Fleetwood Mac. "Looking back now, when I was a…
