Dara ‘Scribble Me This’ (Kleine Reise)

This particular find is the very meat and potatoes of the Heads Down blog. Under the radar- check. Somewhat genreless- check. Utterly brilliant- check, check and check. To be honest I have no idea what Dara O’Neill is singing about (see my Ajukaja post for more of my multilingual lovin’) but he’s singing about whatever […]

Rising Sun ‘Remember EP’ (Kristofferson Kristofferson)

Rising Sun (aka Steffen Laschinski) follows up his ‘Nostalgia EP’ with a record that has had me sitting in the dark, whiskey in hand and on the verge of tears for a couple of nights now. Now before you yell “you drink too much loser”, or simply the timeless “your tears may stem from some […]

ZSOU ‘Written In Dust/Wild Honey’ (ZSOU Music)

It seems psychedelic, cosmic and Balearic are three words that get bandied around quite meaninglessly these days: they often get used to describe the wishy washy drivel on a million ‘Spirit Of Ibiza’ compilations and concurrently anything with a heavily delayed guitar and tabla. Music lovers are suffering while incense retailers are living in gold […]
