Clara Barker is a singer/songwriter from the Isle of Man. "Fine Art & The Breslins" is her second album, and her first for Small Bear Records. You can purchase this 11-song album via this bandcamp page. Purchases on bandcamp will include an additional four bonus songs. This is really pretty stuff. Clara kind of has a Mazzy Star thing going on, I think.

Heck yeah. My buddy Jerry at work loaned me a box of his old 45s, unopened since like forever ago. I forget when he said, but I think it's been a decade or so since he had packed these away. Anyway, it's a gold mine, and I'll be going through it here on CNQ in the coming weeks. I pulled out a double stack from the box tonight and I figured as I went through them, you and I could enjoy the ones that are already on Youtube. This is probably my favorite Neil Diamond song. This was Lulu's B-side for "To Sir With Love." It gets rockin: From the Kinks' Low Budget: According to Wikipedia, "(Low Budget) was a great success for the group, becoming their best-selling non-compilation album," but "'(Wish I Could Be Like) Superman'" was their only single from this album to chart. Interesting. Okay, so as always, more to come.

LA based duo Brett Hool [voice/guitar] and John Kibler [bass/voice], who operate as We Are The West, were featured last May on CNQ. Yesterday they released the third recording of what the band says will be a four-part album. Recorded live in the New Mexico desert, We Are The West III features arrangements by a crew that's grown up around this monthly underground parking garage concert series that We Are The West has goin' on.
