Tunes for a Monday Morning

Today's tunes come from the outrageously talented Josh Flowers and The Wild, a five-piece alt-folk and blues band from London. These young lads are just blindingly good.

Above: "Nickajack Cave," from their first EP, The Observatory Sessions (recorded live last year at the old Radcliffe Observatory in Oxford).

Below: "Poor Boy Blues," from the same EP.


"Rolling Through," a lovely song from their new EP, Young Bones. Banjo, cello, fine harmonies, and Flowers' gorgeous lyrics. <happy sigh>

I you want more, go here for the music video for "Cold,"  off the new EP.


These sweet, talented young'uns got me missing my long gone youth this morning. It was a nice trip through the 'Poor-Boy Blues' for the beginning of a new week. Ah, said the old woman. I remember it well that longing and the energy of it. :-)

Wow... what a great group. I'm so glad they found eachother early in life, they truly meet each other in their genius!
