Current Listening To: Hayden Calnin

With so much of my day job’s focus on business in the US, when its American Thanksgiving I might as well treat it like a holiday here too.  Completely dead here, phone and inbox.  Great for catching up on lingering “to do’s”, but it makes it a little harder to find musical gems.  Good thing I’ve always got one up my sleeve, for slower days.

For fans of Bon IverJames Vincent McMorrow, check out Australian songwriter Hayden Calnin.  Over the past few months, interest in his music has been growing via features in Rolling Stone, Clash, synchs in Teen Wolf and Suits, plus an appearance at Australia’s BIGSOUND Festival.   We’re to look forward to his debut LP next year, but in the meantime get familiar with this artist with a taste below.

Take a listen to “Coward”.
