Cornwall has so many things to offer and culture is definitely right up there. There is a huge amount of awesome music flowing around and out of our great county at the moment, here are three of my top picks: BackBeat SoundSystem – Losing Faith The weather is getting even more rainy and rubbish, If you need that summer buzz back watch this new video from probably my favorite Cornish band or check them out on ‘Three On Thursday’…

  Probably the best band to come out of Portland, Oregon, The Decemberists are an indie folk rock band that are truly superb. One of the many things I like about them is how their songs often feature local folklore and history; this feels very Cornish – and I love it. Their songs feel so natural and rustic; which makes them a regular feature on my fishing playlists. Driving home with a fishy ready for the plate, whilst humming along…

  Frank Turner is a folky, punk singer from Hampshire. I was a big fan of him in his post hardcore band – Million Dead, I was really sad when they split up, but the sadness soon fell away when I heard his solo folk stuff. I love how honest and (excuse the pun) frank his songs are. I had a really hard time choosing just three of his songs, I was going to have ‘Worse Things Happen At Sea’…

  Lets start off with this:     The Eden Project looks unbelievably awesome at night. It’s got to be one of the best and most unusual venues around, because of this it manages to pull in acts that wouldn’t otherwise come to Cornwall. I love it as a venue, yes it takes a long time to walk out after the gig and the car park can be a bit of a nightmare, but the atmosphere is so well worth…

  This weeks Three on Thursday is the fantastic although fairly unknown Darwin Deez. They’re an indie band from New York. I love their uplifting, creative sound and the singer Darwin’s quirky look. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing them live, which is a splendid experience, they pause and do cool little dances in between songs and are just generally, totally rad. (They also make awesome music videos) All of these songs are off their self titled first album: Darwin…

  What’s cooler than a guy skating around the city at night to the Deftones? I really don’t think there is a video on youtube at the moment that is as awesome. It’s directed by filmmaker Brett Novak and stars the skater Jason Park. Romantic Dreams is off Deftones’ album Koi No Yokan. Enjoy.

Welsh post-hardcore heroes of the first have of the naughties, Funeral for a Friend produced two epic albums in Casually Dress & Deep in Conversation and Hours.

I’ve been listening to Planet Rock recently while doing some building and Man Cave work. They’ve introduced me to a few new bands and The Temperance Movement are one of them. They are an awesome British Blues Rock band and this is the first single of their upcoming debut album:

Here is some tasty rock nosh for your ears! Mind Your Manners is the lead single off Pearl Jams latest and 10th Studio album Lightning Bolt and is an ultimate smasher. The song has some really hard edged guitar work but the drumming is my favourite part by far.
