Not My Circus, the band of our Artist of the Week David Ernsberger, makes alt-pop songs with folk-tinged vocal harmonies skipping over a freak show of psych-blues riffs, soulful bass grooves, wonky funk beats and warm electronic textures. A white-knuckle ride to the edge of your musical map, and back again.
Besides David, members of the band are Jake Alexander, Sally Fazakerley, Ben Gibson and Benja Bravo. Although they are based in Madrid, Spain, they origin from four different continents.
Two years ago, Switzerland’s “first and last punk” Rudolph Dietrich released a 60 minutes movie, putting together 19 of his songs of the past decade to a unique mix of political and social discourse, blended with his blues-inspired rock music.
This week’s featured artist (#22) is Birmingham/UK based The Grey Goose Blues Band. They have been beavering away on the blues scene for over 8 years now, playing at venues and festivals up and down the country.
