Here's a new tune with James Dalton (USA) on vocals, Raul Terep on drums and Andres Roots on guitar - recorded at White Room in Tartu, Estonia and at Pearl Studios in New York, USA. The track is another sample from an upcoming album, due early next year, which in addition to new numbers will collect many currently out of print single and EP tracks released since 2012. In addition to Dalton, guest vocalists include Richard Townend (UK), Howard Fishman (USA), Steve Lury (UK), Bert Deivert (USA/SWE), Ismo Haavisto (FIN), Lorete Medne (LAT), Mikk Tammepõld (EST) - and two still TBA ;)

Speaking of Howard Fishman - this is not the track that will be featured on the album but a live jam from last Tuesday. Enjoy!

CD Review & interview

Rudolf's Music in the Netherlands has published a nice review of "Winter Is Coming" - "een prima release" - and an in-depth interview with Andres Roots, the latter in English and including questions and answers such as this: 

What embarrassing songs might I find on your MP3 player?

The embarrassing bit is that I've never owned an MP3 player – I used to have a Walkman many years ago... But I do have some music on my phone to keep me entertained on longer trips, so let's see what's on there right now: the latest AC/DC, Buffalo Springfield, R.L. Burnside, Lonnie Johnson & Eddie Lang, Blind Blake, Wilko Johnson & Roger Daltrey. Could be worse, but I'm not telling :)
