is the place to read album, gig and cultural reviews and general musical musings from artists and bands that occupy that warm spot just below the mainstream radar. Brought to you by Mr CP Mandrake, Mr DE Powell and introducing The Country Bear Jamboree.
Apologies for the radio silence folks but we have been busy on the other social networks with all things Twister Valley.
So here is a quick update on what has been a very productive year thus far. Douglas E Powell and The Rising Spirit has released their long awaited new album Good Men Get Lost At Sea. There is really good buzz about the new album across the web boosted by a play of the track Nash's Tower on BBC Radio 6 Music's Gideon Coe show and a lot of air play on various internet radio stations around the world. We would especially like to thank Brian Player at The Acoustic Cafe Radio Show who has long been a supporter of Douglas's music.
We will be making the album available on download soon, Bandcamp we think but for now the album is available on CD via Douglas's web site at www.douglasepowell.co.uk
Good Men Get Lost At Sea
Earlier in the year we decided to release a limited edition (50 off) EP, The Twister Valley Sessions featuring 2 pre-mastered versions of songs from Good Men...'She Turns Their Heads' and 'Good Ol' Twine' also a re-mixed version of 'Light Beams' from Douglas's 2008 album The Iron Coast. We are glad to report that all copies have now been sold so good luck trying to find one. You can listen to tracks from the EP at our Soundcloud page.
