‘Growing Peaches In Oxfordshire is singer-songwriter Nik Barrell’s homage to the positive powers of music. It’s an EP of five songs, themselves sweet and tender as a bowl of peaches… The songs are also authentic in the way they are recorded: live in one session, without studio retakes. This approach emphasizes the energy of the moment, a key part of Nik Barrell’s optimistic philosophy… And these songs are happy, they are about hope, and pleasure. They ask you to believe that positive actions will have positive consequences. They bring together a weightless nostalgia and a lively feeling of presence, as if to say, happiness does not have to be a thing of the past.’ (Wessie Du Toit)
Every now and then, a riddim comes along that encapsulates a great moment in time. And that riddim right now is “The Rock Steady Riddim” which has a unifying theme which asks the question, drum roll & the guitar pick please, what is a Rock Steady Riddim?
‘Tis the season to get EFFING jolly!
Full disclosure: we seriously love Christmas here at Super Sick. If it involves peace and goodwill to all mankind, that’s something we can definitely get behind. The fact that it also involves lots of rich, gouty food and drums of creatively-flavoured alcohol may also have a bit to do with it. Perhaps.
Luckily, Christmas and good music also go hand in hand – and don’t we know it. This month, aside from girding our loins for the inaugural Super Sick Christmas Party, we’ve decided to do something a bit different: instead of one new artist on this month’s EP, we’ve got together five sets of musicians to give the Super Sick treatment to five Christmas classics.
Beach Talk is twenty-four year old singer/songwriter, Jim Heard. Hailing from Devon, his mix of popular punk-influenced acoustics and hopeful melodies gives him a firm platform to stand on. Having self-released two EPs previous to this, he is very excited to now be releasing his third EP ‘Best Of Both’ (containing a mix of the previous EP’s alongside one previously unreleased track) on Super Sick Records. What Super Sick Records say: Beach Talk is one of those musical projects that smacks of complete authenticity behind thoughtful tunes.
