Here’s an intimate acoustic video of Jonny Polonsky’s “Lay Down Your Arms,” from his recent album The Other Side of Midnight. Gravel-voiced Polonsky pleads for detente and his nakedly acoustic performance is a fitting accompaniment. Written and performed entirely by Polonsky and mixed by longtime Lynch collaborator/engineer, Dean Hurley at David Lynch’s Asymmetrical Studios, Jonny Polonsky’s The Other Side of Midnight is 35 minutes of strange and beautiful, melodic, sci-fi bliss.
Have you ever listened to an album and felt an instant connection? For me, Jonathan Edwards’Tomorrow’s Child is an instant old friend. Edwards' sweetly gentle voice and magnificently crafted lyrics and melodies wrap around like a favorite sweater.
Here’s “Easy On Me” by Runner Of The Woods, from the upcoming release Thirsty Valley, due out July 10. A trippy and laid back testament to a simpler time and place, the song contains hints of the Eagles and Willie Nelson woven into a steady ramble. “Easy On Me” draws you into the vision and there’s no reason not to give in.

Here's the first of our series of live videos featuring Rebecca on acoustic guitar and Megan wailing on lap steel.
Today we’re delighted to share the latest from Billy Shaddox, I Melt, I Howl, out on June 16. It’s a majestic blend of soul-stirring Americana and dreamy pop harmonies.
