RADIATOR KING (Folk/US)
Somewhere between punk and blues – a porch and an alley – lies Radiator King, the performing/recording name of Boston native and Brooklyn based, Adam Silvestri. Established in 2011, Radiator King’s music shows influences from both Dylan and Strummer with a sound described by Boston blog Allston Pudding as something akin to what “Tom Waits locked in a room for a month with nothing but a copy of Springsteen’s Nebraska” might produce. Whether alone with a guitar or backed by a band, Radiator King embodies the raw energy of punk, the grit and intricacy of delta blues, and the lyrical potency of folk in “songs that are the sonic equivalent to an old whiskey bar at the end of a dirt road.”
AILSA AND THE SEAHORSES (Etheriel Indie/SCT)
Scottish singer-songwriter Ailsa McEwan is known for her distinct brand of ethereal indie, delivered by warm smoky vocals described by one fan as “liquid gold”. Performing under the name Ailsa and the Seahorses, her unique sound, both tranquil and haunting, is somewhere between the atmospherics of Mazzy Star and singer- songwriter tradition of Rickie Lee Jones. Following the release of her debut EP, The Centre of Everything, she is touring Europe and Canada, taking her songs of melancholia and hope across the globe.
