Bill Ryder-Jones' beautiful debut EP 'A Leave Taking Soundtrack' is now available as a free downloadhere. Herein,Jones made a leap into the field of orchestral music and landed firmly with an exquisite work that gives some indication of his forthcoming album.
Bill Ryder-Jones: ‘When I left the band I wasn't playing much music at all but in 2009 a friend got in touch asking if I would write something for this short he was making, which I did. It's pretty much the only thing I wrote that year but the process opened another world up to me. We thought it'd be nice to give it away to the people who have been interested in what I've been doing on my own and also to hint at the future a little bit. My album, which is a soundtrack inspired by a novel, is pretty much a progression from the things learnt when writing for Leave Taking.
Speedy Ortiz frontperson Sadie Dupuis has a solo project called Sad13. Today, she’s announced its debut LP, Slugger, which she wrote, produced, and recorded this year in Philadelphia. Listen to lead single “Get a Yes” below.
The record was mixed by Gabe Wax and mastered by Emily Lazar, with “occasional” drums from Ava Luna’s Julian Fader. The album is released via Car Park Records.
Aaron Maine’s Porches follows the release of this year’s acclaimed Pool with the Water EP – a special opportunity to experience the music that formed the melodic skeleton of Pool in its raw state, alongside a pair of previously unreleased songs ‘Black Dress’ and ‘Black Budweiser T-Shirt’. Recorded solo in his adopted home of New York City, the Water EP strips Maine’s work down to its core, opening the curtain on his musical metamorphosis from previous releases Slow Dance In The Cosmos and those of his alias, Ronald Paris, into the Porches of today.
Coinciding with the release of Water, Porches has shared a video for previously unreleased song ‘Black Dress,’ one of the new tracks from the EP. Watch the video above.
One half of The 2 Bears, alongside Hot Chip's Joe Goddard, Raf Rundell's been a little quiet release-wise since the duo's The Night Is Young album (besides the occasional track). Still, he's back now and he's got a brand new project: Selfie Boy. He'll be releasing an album under the new alias called The Adventures Of Selfie Boy Part 1 (Dec. 9 via 1965 Records)
Listen to the lead single "Right Time" below which was written with Oli Bayston of Boxed In.
Fat White Family have unveiled new song ‘Breaking Into Aldi’.
It’s the band’s first new material since their second album ‘Songs For Our Mothers’ was released in January. The single was produced by Sean Lennon and the band’s Saoudi brothers, singer Lias and keyboardist Nathan Saoudi, with their regular producer Liam May.
Kate Tempest - artist, poet, playwright and novelist has announced a new album, and it’s due out later this year. The follow-up to her Mercury-nominated breakthrough ‘Everybody Down’ will be released through Fiction Records and is titled ’Let Them Eat Chaos’.
After the release of her Sunday Times Bestselling novel ‘The Bricks The Built The Houses’ earlier in the year, the forthcoming record sees Kate continue her creative relationship with prolific producer Dan Carey.
The first taste of the new LP comes in the form of an album trailer (see above), which features the track ‘Picture A Vacuum’ set against the album’s dystopian artwork courtesy of photomontage artist Peter Kennard.
'All that Matters' Directed by Tash Tung and Chris Turner
"I wrote this song as a bittersweet mantra for someone close to me and since then, it seems to have also become my own tune to lift me out of troubled moments. A constant reminder that no matter what life throws at you, to not forget about the ones who will always care, the ones who are standing waiting to welcome you back, the ones who will forever look after you and say simply, they love you. At the end of the day, that’s all that matters, caring and being cared for. Yet to love and not be loved is one of the saddest things of all."
"I've read 1 in 3 of us will die with dementia, and a third of us are connected to someone with dementia through family and friends", says Peel, discussing the album's central theme - memory. “850,000 people in the UK alone have it now and 2 in 3 people affected will be women. It’s quite remarkable really, and it’s getting worse”.
Produced by long-time collaborator Erland Cooper and was recoorded in their own analogue studio in Shoreditch and Attica Audio, Ireland.
