The Nightjar - 'Wardrobe'.

On this past week's radio show we played the new single 'Wardrobe' from The Nightjar, progressive lo-fi Post-Folkers from Bristol.

They now have a gorgeously intriguing video to go with the song filmed by band member Pete Thomas on a CCTV camera no less - Really lovely stuff!

'Originally conceived as a close-harmony vocal trio, a collaboration with South London producer Kams brought them to the attention of Boiler Room’s Joe Muggs. The ensuing Boiler Room debut went viral, and brought their 2015 ‘The Nightjar’ EP plaudits from nearly 70,000 underground music fans, as well as the accolade of airplay on Radio 3’s Late Junction.

A successful crowd-funding campaign convinced them of the existence of an audience for their dream-like, ethereal songs of hope, loss and disaster and, in the autumn of 2015, The Nightjar relocated to a farmhouse in rural Portugal to begin their first full-length offering.

Drawing influence from the lo-fi wooze of Grouper, the stark and poignant balladry of Diane Cluck and the deft compositions of Colleen, The Nightjar use close-harmonies, tight-interlocking guitars, deep bass and an intense lead vocal to paint fragile, haunting landscapes.'

We hope to get the band in for a live session very soon and can't wait for the release of their upcoming long player 'Objects'.

In the meantime you can catch them at The Jazz Cafe this coming Tuesday 24th Jan 2017...

Levi Cuss - 'Night Thief'.

Here at Bonanza & Son HQ we are very much enjoying the upcoming long player from Levi Cuss - A real rootsy groover with exquisite vintage tones but always with a contemporary pertinence from a man whom the term 'real deal' may well have been invented - No stranger to drink, drugs, crime and even doing time!

'Night Thief' is an album that picks you up off of the dusty red dirt and less than an hour later drops you off somewhere far far away in the cosmos!

A 'Hen House' Nashville recorded album beautifully produced by Steve Dawson.

Expect to hear it on Bonanza & Son on Resonance 104.4fm next Wednesday 18 January at 4:30pm (UK time)

'Night Thief' is released 10 March 2017.
