Her musical style has been described as doom soul and incorporates influences of American deep south gospel with a strong goth streak. She signed with Mute Records at the beginning of 2012. Dan Has highlights of her set at the Reeperbahn festival on The Alternative.

    Recorded at Knust, Hamburg by NDR (North German Radio) for Eurosonic.

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK: SEASICK STEVE, THE HARD GROUND & LAURA MARLING

     




    At this stage you have an idea of what a new Seasick Steve album may sound like, but does that make them any less electrifying? Absolutely not! With ‘Sonic Soul Surfer’ he sounds like a man possessed with making his defining album. Packed full of energy and tunes, this is definitely one of his strongest outings.

    The past twelve months has seen The Hard Ground release three quality EPs. ‘Triptych’ is what you might call a compilation of those, and it underlines the band’s growth as a real musical force. Catch them in May when they undertake a short jaunt around Ireland.

    ‘Short Movie’ is the latest album in one of the most richly prolific careers around at the moment. Laura Marling has bridged the divide between the older folk fan, and the newer generation; but her influence and appeal goes far beyond that. ‘Short Movie’ is a remarkable album.

    BURIED TREASURE - 'THE GOLDEN HORDE' BY THE GOLDEN HORDE

     



    The Golden Horde's only studio album is a true lost classic in the annals of Irish Rock history. Is this praise a step too far? Certainly not when you consider tracks like 'Endless Weekend', 'Friends In Time', and '100 Boys', the latter still sounds strong alongside anthems from Royal Blood or Mark Lanegan Band.
