The Scrapes - Before There's Nothing Left     Classical, Rock, Folk, Experimental 26/08/2010
The Scrapes are an unusual duo of feedback drenched guitar and scraping, epic violin. Their music evokes dark landscapes of decaying urban structures and acts of nature.
Before There's Nothing Left is piece based a round a violin loop reminiscent of Romanian folk music. It is a whirling sonic dervish of gypsy fury and brooding contemplation.

Other tracks by The Scrapes:  Drivetime  -  Electric Mourning Blues
Francesca Sidoti - Happy     Pop, Folk, Blues 25/08/2010
A singer-songwriter, Francesca sounds like Eliza Gllkyson or Beth Orton, with occasional Nina Simone moments. A mix of retro pop, folk and swing, and a voice to raise the rafters.
'Happy' is a driving song. It makes you want to get behind the wheel, grab supplies from your local chippie and head for the beach. It reflects the influence of Paul Kelly, and can only be described as retro pop. A catchy chorus, driving rhythm and some wild piano accordion.

A kind of theme song or anthem for The Good Ship. All about being out at sea looking forward to getting to shore for the triple delights of booze, gambling and womenfolk!
