If…, is the solo album from Bill Ryder-Jones out November 14th 2011 recorded to soundtrack Italo Calvino’s meditation on writing in the post modernist novel If On A Winters Night A Traveller. Ryder-Jones left The Coral after the fifth studio album where he was able to spend time focussing on developing ideas in string arrangements and orchestral platforms particularly with a focus on working towards emulating beloved film scores. This debut came into being in various locations around Ryder-Jones’ hometown of Liverpool including the Scandinavian Church, Grade II listed warehouse Elevator Studios and his mother's home down by the Irish sea. Musicians, friends and even the Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra pulled together to make this extraordinary undertaking a magnificent work and the beginning of what will assuredly be a spectacular opening for one of Domino's most fine new signings sure to be recognised as one of Britain's finest young composers.
Philladelphia's Purling Hiss are getting ready to release a new album called Weirdon, and at least based on the early track “Learning Slowly,” the album may be the most accessible work of the band’s career. “Learning Slowly” is piled with rickety drums and wildly overlapping guitar leads, but it’s also a big and triumphant and immediate rock song, and there’s something fundamentally catchy about its sense of propulsion. Listen to it below.
