Drink chablis and dig Jef Maarawi

Jef Maarawi – Reverend Jones It’s Inner Ear Records double weirdness today, following our post of Bazooka earlier. Here’s “Reverend Jones”, another far-out freak-out moon-age daydream from Jef Maarawi. It’s a psyche-folk meditation on infamous holy man Reverend Jones that collapses into a rather wonderful jazz breakdown. The titles roll and a 1957 Chevrolet Bel…

Carry on re Gadless

Gadless- Afraid Have a listen to this, “Afraid” is the new single from Gadless. It popped into our Gmail yesterday and within 15 seconds I knew I loved it.

I’m the Celt who loves May Roosevelt

May Roosevelt – Air “Air” is the new single by May Roosevelt from forthcoming LP “Junea” out on October 23 via Inner Ear.
