His new album, North of Maple, will be released May 13, 2014 on Team Love Records.
Team Love congratulates Simone Felice on the debut of his second album, Strangers.
Simone Felice tells “the story of the strange, beautiful, painful parade of being a human being on earth.” -Paste
“This is a decidedly different affair which, even if some of the songs come with a dark cloud, has a much fuller and richer sound, often featuring swathes of strings, with a frequent pop sensibility.” -Folk Radio UK
“Melodically upbeat Americana paired with Felice’s effortless, emotionally resonant voice, gives us an album which shines a light on shadowy times.” -Louder Than War
Fans in North America can pick up the release from Dualtone or follow the link to find a copy
in your part of the world.

Of MiWi La Lupa’s audio premiere:
“MiWi La Lupa reminds that our insignificance…is at times overwhelming, but somehow, beautifully, we’ll never be convinced of that.”
Listen to the session featured at Daytrotter.
The Bluegrass Situation featured the first track from 36¢, the new album by The Lowest Pair, as song of the week. About “Oh, Susanna” the Situation says:
“…it barely resembles the original, the Lowest Pair’s version is rooted in deep Southern charm and an intense feeling of longing.”
You can read Kendl Winter’s words about how the song developed here.
Download “Oh, Susanna” from the player below or from our Sound Cloud page.
