Wicked Songs: Only Love by Xylouris White

So that’s that new video song from them, my fave drummer of all-time Jim White and Georgios Xylouris on Cretan laouto and vocals. The song Only Love is from the new album titled Mother released late last month and on my to buy list now! It’s the third by them as a duo now with once again Guy Picciotto from bands Fugazi and Rites Of Spring as producer. The video clip is by Lucy Dyson, who made some great videos in the past for other acts too, you know?

The last Xylouris White album called Black Peak made my of top ten albums of 2016 and last year Jim White re-entered with the album by Mark Kozelek with Ben Boye and Jim White. I’ve blogged about Jim White’s older acts with early 80’s band called People With Chairs Up Their Noses, then mid 80’s band called Venom P. Stinger and his 90’s band called Dirty Three, off course plus he played on my most fave Cat Power album then. I’ve missed a lot of his work it seems so, maybe I better do some more blog posts about him very soon. I did linked those above, just click the acts name for it. I should say something about Georgios Xylouris really but I don’t know any other Crete singers and lute players so that might have to be it about him but he’s bloody amazing! I did get to see them playing in an art gallery a couple of years ago now, great gig! Their website is here too!

OK, I’m sorry for the total lack of posting this week if anyone does care! I don’t know? Anyway this is a new-ish song I’m really digging the last week or so as a quick post for anyone who wants to check it out? Hopefully I’ll get back normal posting sooner or later but in the meantime enjoy this!

Cheers 🙂
