Needle in the Haystack: Lucy Bland

Needle in the Haystack has brought us some really fantastic artists thus far, and this week’s artist is no exception.   Despite the name, Lucy Bland isn’t a single artist. This group of talented musicians, hailing from Seattle, Washington, came together to create a unique blend of indie rock and experimental electronica. One listen and you’ll be hooked on their smooth vocals and unique electronic sounding backup. No wonder they’re selling out venues in their area.

Lucy Bland is graciously allowing us to offer the track “Rewrite (No End Mix)” for free!  In this track, keep an ear out for the combination of head bobbin’ quick rhythms with sustained ambient tones that give the song it’s distinctive sound. Stream or download the track below, let us know what you think and stay tuned for much more from Lucy Bland to come this week!

CELLO? CELLO!: AN OURSTAGE CELLO PLAYLIST

Bethany & Rufus

Bethany & Rufus

On the title track of The Who’s 1966 album A Quick One there’s a section of the song in which the members sing the word “cello” over and over again. Originally, a cello solo was intended for that part of the band’s first “mini” rock opera, however budget setbacks prevented them from giving the audience the real deal. Fortunately, there’s a bountiful crop of artists on OurStage, such as Bethany & Rufus, that can offer you the real deal. This globetrotting duo from New York combines Rufus Cappadocia’s poignant cello playing with Bethany Yarrow’s soulful vocals. Together they’re putting their own spin on American folk music. You can check them out and other cello wielding acts in the player below.
