Western As Fuck is a brilliant YouTube channel providing excellent country music videos. We stumbled across this fantastic country song by Kassi Valazza, written about her father from the perspective of her grandmother. An amazing voice, great songwriting.

Bobby Dove - Hopeless Romantic

On social media we are following Bobby Dove for quite some time now. Just recently Bobby released the fantastic album "Hopeless Romantic".

Saving Country Music writes about the album: "...that will have you crying and moaning along with some of the best classic country music composed in new original songs that's come down the pike in quite a while".

Our friend Declan Culliton from says: " excellent album and as pure a musical experience as there is. It’s also an album that, no doubt, will encourage newcomers to Bobby Dove’s music to also check out its predecessor."

The Dead Tongues - Strangers

How did we miss out on The Dead Tongues killer album "Transmigrational Blues" last year? Thanks to our Dutch friend, Mannie Boor, for the great recommendation. There are so many great tracks on the album, it felt hard to choose just one.

The Dead Tongues ist the folk-rock project of Durham's Ryan Gustafson. Check out this fantastic tune...
