Rewind #2 (13/05/14)

This rewind blog may seem a little overdue and you would be right in thinking that! However, features, reviews and spotlight blogs have been coming in left, right and centre, which is definitely a good thing - I'm not complaining! But that has meant that this rewind blog in particular has been pushed further away from it's original publish date... Still, here is 'Pt. 1' for this month and focuses on the artists featured in 2013...

EP Releases:

First up, Angus Powell (Music In Time Blog's first feature) released his second EP 'Waylaid' earlier this year. Both of his EPs are now streaming on sound cloud as well, so if you want to have an Angus Powell session, that's the place to go!

Next is April Keen, she released her debut EP 'Solace' back in March, it's a five track beaut! I absolutely love it and it's a hit in the house and the car too! I reviewed it as it came out as well (link below). April's received lots of attention on her local radio stations recently too, which is great to see!

Last for this section is Harry Seaton, he's already working on his second EP and it doesn't seem that long ago he released 'Shadows EP', his debut EP, another good one! He's also still uploading regularly on YouTube, so his channel's worth subscribing to!

EP Updates:

Jamie Willetts, one of the first few artists featured on Music In Time, has announced information about his debut EP, it's called 'Burn' and is coming soon... I'm really looking forward to hearing the tracks on it as his music has really grown in the past year, so it should be a really good one! :) 

Adam Double is also releasing an EP, very soon! It's called Phil and is due to be released on 22nd May (and is currently available to pre-order!) Adam's been uploading sessions on Youtube recently too of the tracks off the EP, and they're all sounding really good! 

Uploads & Other Updates:

Maddy Storm has uploaded a few videos, and has been frequently uploading to sound cloud,  including a new original song which is great! She's also had a few gigs so go check out her FB page to keep up to date with those!

Jemma Johnson is currently finishing off her final year of uni before she is venturing back into the world of music fully. She has been uploading some videos onto Youtube though and there is an EP on it's way, which I'm sure is going to be great! 

Dan Robinson has just been on a mini tour with Antix and has been uploading a fair amount of videos on his Youtube page recently... He's also released a few tracks here and there in the past 6 months. 

George Barnett has a full summer ahead! With festival dates and probably some scattered gigs AND working on his next EP! He's recently released a new track called '3 Statues' and it lives up to his insane standard! 

Haytham Whitear has also been uploading his tracks to Soundcloud lately, and there might be some more things set up for his music soon! 

Orla Gartland has also been gigging recently, after a tour at the start of the year and recent trip to America. She's uploaded some great covers over on her Youtube channel recently as well, which are worth a listen! 

Another uploader to Soundcloud recently is Bambi with a great new track 'Sheltered Eyes', they've also got a load of gigs coming up, so they're another one to keep up to date with on FB! 

Shaun Colwill is also starting to plan a release of his debut EP, which is exciting and he's been uploading to Youtube regularly too, with a few gigs here and there as well! Definitely one to keep an eye on! 

After finishing their 'Food & Fuel Tour', Delve have been played on BBC Introducing in the West and have now updated their blog from their tour all the way to the lsat episode, which is worth checking out too!

Lastly, Lianne Kaye has been uploading regularly to her Youtube channel and has been doing some gigs around and about, another one to watch over on FB! 

Check It Out!

It could be argued that this is very heavily based on Eurovision Song Contest (from Saturday) and you would be correct apart from the cover! Enjoy! 

Chart: Calm After The Storm - The Common Linnets

This track was Netherlands entry and it made it to #4 in the UK Singles Chart the day after the competition. It placed second in the Eurovision contest, which is the highest position since they won in 1975. The track is a pretty great country folk song and is accompanied with a black and white video (filmed in Edam...)

Live Performance: Rise Like A Phoenix - Conchita Wurst

The winning song of Eurovision this year, performed by Austrian singer Conchita Wurst. This track is their second win in the competition their first being in 1966. Personally, I think it sounds like it should be the soundtrack for a James Bond film, and really like the track! Enjoy this one! 

Cover: Magic - Lauren Aquilina

So I was going to save this one for next week and try and find a cover of a eurovision track, but there doesn't seem to be many, so here is an insane cover of one of Coldplay's latest tracks from their upcoming album 'Ghost Stories' from Lauren Aquilina. She was invited to Maida Vale to do a live lounge with Radio 1 a couple of weeks ago and I got to enjoy it late at night in a car on the way back from the beach with friends, with stars and everything, which kinda added to the 'magic'. 

Youtube: Children Of The Universe - Molly

Discovered through her work on BBC Introducing, Molly Smitten-Downes was chosen to represent the United Kingdom in Eurovision this year, the song was inspired by Max Ehrmann's poem, Desiderata. The song finished in 17th place, and it's a track that again, I really like, it's a great track and I may have had it on repeat the last two days... 

Thanks for reading!
