Weekly Roundup for August Eighth / vagabond, won’t you carry on

On this week’s Monday Morning Tape…

…Canadian experimental folk, bluegrass country-folk (x2), a super-catchy British band that perished too soon, and a tribute performance to that particular British band by a different, super-popular British band.

Happy Monday.

Forest Moon – Nimbin / Peaceful Ghosts

Tom Meikle is a Canadian experimental folkie who performs under the name Forest Moon.

His songs are slow and patient and atmospheric. They’re also quite good.

His debut record, A Northern Star, A Perfect Stone, was quietly released at the tail end of last year.

RIYL: Bon Iver, winter, James Vincent McMorrow, good music, pinot noir

Tyler Childers – Oneida

Yep, still can’t wait for this fella’s debut record.

Cereus Bright – American Dream / Claustrophobic

Here’s a pair of upbeat folk tunes, complete with footstomps and handclaps, from Cereus Bright’s recently-released debut record, Excuses.

Viola Beach – Boys That Sing

Viola Beach have been featured here before.  If you don’t know their story, feel free to take a minute and go read about it.

Their self-titled debut record was posthumously released on Friday.

And let it never be said that Coldplay aren’t some 100% classy dudes.

A mighty fine PR person with PromoLift suggested that the gif below could be of interest, given the name of this site.

Spot on, Mr. Li. Spot on.

Until next week, cheers.
