Super World Interview Time: You’d be crazy to miss Missy Bauman.

Missy first came to my attention when she sent us the beautifully powerful and heart-rending song “Two Sisters”. Well I was immediately hooked. The Canadian artist wears her heart on her sleeve, sings like an angel with a broken heart and writes some of the finest, edgy folk tunes I’ve heard in many a year…

Delighted to be the receiver of this track from The Black Fever

Adore this track sent in via the SSSH! portal from The Black Fever called Marketing. It’s 3 minutes and 46 seconds of indie pop perfection.

Living Hour go under cover.

Living Hour – Tous les garcons et les filles Living Hour has a habit of taking me back to my childhood and they’ve done it again with this rather glorious cover version of “Tous les garcons et les filles”, the Francois Hardy classic. I fell in love with the song, the singer and consequently France…
