Out This Week!

Every Monday at 3 pm on The Afternoon Show, Kevin Cole spotlights some of each week’s new releases. Lots of good stuff out this week, and here’s a look the self-titled record from a pretty cool six piece folk rock band from London called The Eighteenth Day of May.


The Eighteenth Day of May – The Eighteenth Day of May (Hannibal)

“A promising debut album from this British band featuring New Orleans-raised singer Alison Brice, with a classic British folk-rock sound similar to the Fairport Convention and Pentangle, but tinged with the dark psychedelic drones of the Velvet Underground.” – Don Yates

Here are some tracks from The Eighteenth Day of May

The Flowers of the Forest – (MP3)
Hide and Seek – (MP3)
Cold Early Morning – (MP3)
Deed I Do – (MP3)

    I wonder if by Danielson, they mean THE Danielson Famile has a new album out. If so, that is fucking awesome and I NEED to get to Everyday Music stat.
