Tiny Stills have made some of the most compelling indie power pop of the past few years. With an ear for melody and hooks that pull you into the song, they have released a series of terrific singles from ‘Craigslist Bed‘ to ‘Everything is Going Great‘. The latest song from Kailynn West and Company addresses how music can help us over come the challenges of life everyday. You can follow the band on twitter at @tinystills.
Compare this original rocking version of ‘Two Ships’ from Charlie Jackson and the Heartland Railway version of the song:
… To this lovely classic country duet version of ‘Two Ships’ from Charlie & Amanda!
We are all winners here! Two great versions of a terrific song from the pen of Mr. Jackson!
The title track from The Beths sophomore record is a classic jangly poppy indie gem. This New Zealand band has been making some impressive music since 2015. The Beths have used social media (Facebook, Soundcloud, Twitter, Instagram and an incredibly socially aware website) to share their music with us! Enjoy!
Kailynn West as Tiny Stills is making some of the most infectious indie power pop that captures the sadness and melancholy of choices and consequences of this thing we call life. The fact that she does so without being trite or condescending is something that should catch on! In the best tradition of post-punk, Tiny Stills explores twists and turns with catchy melodies and crunchy guitars. It does not get better than that. You should also explore the excellent “Everything is Going Great” which speaks to us in this current moment of time.

The first couple of Dayton Country Music have their first single from their upcoming debut record! Harkening back to the classic country duets and duos of classic country past, Charlie & Amanda craft songs that address and document the challenges of real life with heart, sincerity and authenticity. Their music reminds us of the legendary country duos of Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn, George Jones and Tammy Wynette, Kenny Rodgers and Dolly Parton and Johnny Cash and June Carter. The most appropriately titled full length album “The King & Queen of Dayton Country” is available for pre-order now at at the duo’s bandcamp page. The record will be available everywhere on July 25, 2020. You owe it to yourself to check out the first single!
Love this band! And you should too! No one documents the ups and downs, the tribulations and challenges of everyday life like this band! The Kyle Sowashes from Columbus, Ohio have been making some great indie rock since 2005! Their latest video “I’m Busy” comes from the excellent “I Don’t Know What To Tell You” on Anyway Records. The video includes live footage filmed by Chris Young. Mr Kyle Sowash himself directed this epic piece of cinematography. Well done Kyle!
