The Other Dramas

When you’re out for an evening in Oxford, England and looking for something entertaining to enjoy, if you are lucky, you could bump into The Other Dramas who play regularly around the town and at festivals when the weather is nice.

They are Maria Ilett who plays guitar and sings with Richie Wildsmith drumming along to the beat. Maria and Richie have been playing together for over a year now, coming from what used to be Nine Stone Cowboy they have developed a unique style of their own.

They have recently released a CD of their favourite tunes to date which you can now have via iTunes and other online stores, to play whenever you want. For me it is one of the best local recordings I have heard for a while.

The Other Dramas’ Noisy Star EP is one of those compilations of songs which once finished you find yourself pressing play and listening to over again. It’s a very infectious experience and I found it goes well with the good recent summer we are enjoying.

Each track has its own identity which is a skill in itself these days. The CD builds as it goes, and on track 3 “Gonna Break My Heart” you hear Denny Ilett Snr creeping in with some inspiring trumpet behind a weepy toe tappy tempo.

The last number is “My Mermaid Song” which is just Maria and an acoustic guitar, showing off why she has one of the most enchanting voices on the musical scene in Oxford.

The best thing to do is get hold of the Noisy Star EP as soon as you can and enjoy a soundtrack to the summer of 2014 and beyond!

THE GHOST OF A SABER TOOTH TIGER ANNOUNCE NEW TOUR DATES WITH BECK

The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger – the psych-rock band fronted by Sean Lennon and Charlotte Kemp Muhl, aka The GOASTT – have added additional tour dates this June in support of Beck.

The five-piece electric band began touring earlier this month, bringing their new album Midnight Sun (out now via Chimera Music) to live audiences across the U.S.

The GOASTT also stopped by Conan earlier this week to perform “Poor Paul Getty”.

Praise for The GOASTT + Midnight Sun:

“12 out-of-body transmissions that channel Bends-era Radiohead, Syd Barrett whimsy and woozy melodic weirdness. (4 stars)” – Mojo Magazine

“An epic psychedelic wig-out (8/10)” – NME

“Rich thunder of lysergic-rock textures and dream-pop lyricism (3 ½ stars)” – Rolling Stone

“Anyone who knows me knows I don’t get excited about anything, but there was something I got genuinely very excited about in Austin [at SXSW] and that was seeing The Ghost Of A Saber Tooth Tiger…it was just the most awesome live show I’ve seen in ages.” – Robin Hilton, NPR’s All Songs Considered

“Midnight Sun is a monumental gem of an album…This is something that more than deserves to be heard…a work of pop songcraft that straddles the line so effortlessly between the past and the present. Midnight Sun is a true jewel, and worthy of the linage of one member’s predecessor. (8/10)” – PopMatters
