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.
Rosie Lowe's new single 'Water Came Down' is released alongside a new video directed Jacob Hopewell and was filmed at the Underwater Studio in Basildon. The single follows the release of the 'Right Thing' EP from earlier this year. ‘Water Came Down’ is released via Paul Epworth’s label Wolf Tone, and the first to be taken from her anticipated debut album due out early next year.
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.
