Today’s free download comes from somebody who’s been played a fair amount on this show. His name is Neil Holyoak and he’s new to us, but is actually already five albums in. 

Download Neil Holyoak - Red Queen of Autumn

Red Queen of Autumn is taken from fifth album Rags Across The Sun, out 9th September. Neil is a Canadian-American musician, based in Montreal and originally from Los Angeles. It seems the guy enjoys travelling around a fair amount and you can see that in his influences, in which he cites everything from French symbolist poetry and the acoustic blues music of Mali as inspiration. He’s another one for 2014 to put on your radar, evoking the ghost of Bon Iver, the soul of James Vincent McMorrow and the autumn chill of S. Carey.
