A slightly older track today from Auckland indie-folk artist, Simon Comber. The reason I have posted this is Auckland band (and NZMusic4U favourite), She's So Rad were asked to recommend a list of NZ acts by the Australian blog "Something You Said" (see link below) and the first on the list was Simon. It is difficult to find videos but "High Plains Drifter", despite being an "oldie", is a "goodie". The song is from his 2006 album"Pre-Pill Love". He has since released a further two albums, 2009's "Endearance", and the 2011 EP "The Right To Talk to Strangers". She's So Rad's Jeremy Toy says of Simon, "On every one of Simon’s records there is a song that knocks you sideways. He has lyrics that can stir and pull out emotions you may not even have thought you had. If you want to hear a songwriter steeped in tradition and writing for the sheer art of the song then Simon is a great artist to discover. Great songs to start with are ‘Early Spring Rain’ of his album ‘Pre-Love Pill’ or ‘Please Elvis’ off ‘Endearance’." I have embedded a rather raw, but still effective live video of Simon at www.nzmusic4ulive.com. You can buy Simon's music at the link below.
