Hymn for Her – Drive Til U Die

For Lucy Tight and Wayne Waxing of Hymn for Her, ‘Drive Til U Die’ is more than an album title. It’s a manifesto. A mantra. But to call this Americana duo road warriors would be a misnomer; to them, the road isn’t a battleground to conquer, it’s their beloved home. A nomadic tribe with their young daughter, they dwell in a ’61-vintage Bambi Airstream towed by a Ford van whose odometer shows nearly half a million miles – a trip to the moon. And back. Sleeping to the rhythm of spinning wheels, they thrive on spontaneity, friends and the moments that make it worthwhile: when they stand onstage and unleash their dynamic yin-yang of high-octane outlaw rockers and honey-sweet, harmony-laden ballads.

Eddie and the Head-Starts – It Feels So Good

The East of Paris is where it’s at! If you’re looking for action in the city of lights, look no further. Live music, themed bars where musicians hang at or good restaurants that don’t require you to sell a kidney to pay the bill. It’s also the birthplace and playground of Eddie & The Head-Starts aka your favourite local Rockabilly trio. Wether in Punk and Rock and Roll bars, squats, dance halls, clubs or restaurants, those boys are always willing and ready to spread the good word and keep live music alive. They have become a familiar face in that environment, meanwhile expanding their horizons as a band to many other places in France and the rest of Europe. For their first recording effort, they chose to go way farther East: the East of Berlin, home of Lightning Recorder, the right studio for them thanks to its vintage analog equipment and skillfull team. The result is 12 rocking tracks, recorded live with no overdubs. Sincere and passionate material made for people who like down to earth music.
