Throughout his years of traveling, John Andrews has documented his life with his home recordings. Now based in the wooded hills of Barrington, NH, Mt. Misery, is the colonial era farmhouse John now calls his home. This is where new album, Bad Posture was born.
The band have shared the first track and video for "Drivers".The album Bad Posture is due on the 10th March on Woodsist Records. Click here to pre-order the vinyl and itunes for the digital album.
The songs were written slowly & quietly and recorded in John's barn. The band itself has staples from the New England music scene; Rachel Neveu & Lukas Goudreault (MMOSS/Soft Eyes) & Joey Schneider.
Just U.S. dates so far but, fingers crossed the band will make it across the pond for some European shows.

‘Oil Fire’ is a widescreen song by HEZEN (London-based French producer and songwriter Sarah Hezen) who sings of resilience, of rolling with the punches, as she produces a beautiful take on the maxim of what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.
Created by Sarah with her iPhone, a macro lens, and with post-production on After Effects, the video is quite amazing. Her debut EP, STIGMA, is released on 27 January and is described as a collection of songs about violence and resistance. The French captured our hearts with Christine and the Queens last year, 2017 maybe the year of HEZEN.
Having a very full inbox mean't that we nearly missed the lovely debut single from a native of East Sussex, Natalie Bouloudis which came out in December.
Anyhow, do have a listen below and for more details, check out Natalie's facebook page
