Alexi Murdoch - Some Day Soon, out March 14th

This is a little different from our usual posts - the video below is a live performance - but it's worth bending the rules from time to time. Alexi Murdoch's appearance at New York's The Mercury Lounge on February 7th is hopefully not the last we'll hear of this guy.

Some Day Soon, the song performed here, is released as a single on March 14th, while Murdoch's album Towards the Sun offers more astonishingly simple music which continues the back-to-basics trend that saw Mumford & Sons claim Best Album at this year's Brits.

Love it or hate it, this kind of thing is gathering momentum in the face of over-produced, manufactured pop. I actually love both, so it'll be interesting to see what happens in the months to come...
