These Days there are few things in life that give me cause for celebration, but a new record from The Felice Brothers. The band from the Hudson Valley make music as odd and interesting as it is entertaining. A wonderful live band,

Today the band released a video for their new single, along with a date for their new album Life In The Dark (out June 24th). It’s a fun track, a bit in the vein of “Cherry Licorice” in the kind of impractical lyrics that make more sense the more you listen. The video of archive video pairs well with the song, as you can see for yourself.

The Felice Brothers new album Life In The Dark is out June 24th on Yep Roc Records and is available for preorder now.

The Felice Brothers return to Pawling, NY at Daryl’s House Club on May 12.  prepare to hear some new tunes from the forthcoming Life In The Dark (as well as old favorites).



The family friendly music, arts and science festival has just unveiled its first band announcements for this year’s event. Now firmly established as one of the jewels in the Northern festival crown, Deer Shed returns for its sixth annual outing over the last weekend July. And what a weekend it promises to be if the first artists for Deer Shed Festival 6 are anything to go by.

The term ‘family festival’ was invented to describe Deer Shed. In fact, if you don’t have any offspring in tow you may feel a little out of place. Even its comedy tent is PG-rated.  There is a huge array of children’s activities and family-friendly entertainment.  It would all be very village fete were it not for the fact that Deer Shed’s music-line up is pretty spot on. There are definitely some heritage acts to entertain the parents but there is also plenty of interesting new sounds and names familiar to 6 Music connoisseurs.  As you may imagine, the crowds are very polite, the toilets are clean and the mood is happy. Sadly, most of the fun draws to a close at around midnight, with only one venue open till 2 am and most of the entertainment ending on Sunday afternoon.

Music highlights: Billy Bragg, Boxed In, Emmy the Great, Honeyblood, John Grant,Menace Beach, The Pictish Trail, Shopping, The Unthanks, The Wedding Present

The Mad Mackerel

Simone Felice

We are looking forward immensely to Simone Felice’s new album Strangers (UK release on 24th March via Team Love Records).

If the release of the first track from it, Molly O!, fed that anticipation, a first listen to Running Through My Head has fuelled it a whole lot more. More introverted, more isolated, it amply showcases his very considerable talents as a poet and songwriter.

Strangers, is a ten song collection recorded in the Catskills with guests The Felice Brothers, Leah Siegel, and Wesley Schultz & Jeremiah Fraites of The Lumineers. Roll on March…
