Yannick Ilunga, AKA Petite Noir, has released details of his debut album ‘La Vie Est Belle / Life Is Beautiful’. The 11 track LP from the half-Congolese, half-Angolan, Cape Town-residing artist follows the release of his breakout EP, ‘The King Of Anxiety’, earlier this year.

Recorded at Box Ten Studios in London with Oli Bayston (Boxed In) and Leon Brichard (Ibibio), the album is a highly accomplished work with a unique concoction of influences. Named after a revered Congolese film of the same name, the album is both a beacon and a vessel of inspiration, offering empowerment to those who need it.

With footage filmed around the streets of Lubumbashi during Yannick’s recent trip to the Democratic Republic of Congo, the first track to be shared from the album - ‘Down’ - blends unrehearsed imagery and joyful sounds to paint a contemporary portrait of Petite Noir's Congolese background and his hopes for the country's future. Watch it above.

Laucan has unveiled the new video for 'Wait For The Impact’ from his debut album ‘FramesPerSecond’ released in July of this year by Sunday Best. Watch above. 

Laucan on his new music video, says: "‘Wait For The Impact’ is an attempt at resolving inner conflict through affecting your surroundings in some way. For the video we spoke about themes of prayer and ritual, acts in which we demonstrate our faith in some kind of physical incarnation. I find that songwriting is one of these acts of faith, and can be a catalyst for change in ourselves and our surroundings, despite our resolve being tested."

Laucan returns to London for a headline show at The Waiting Room on 15th August, and has also been invited to support Nonesuch artist Sam Amidon across his 9–date European tour this Autumn which includes a London show at the Union Chapel in late October. Interspersed amongst these dates are festival appearances at Bestival and Moseley Folk Festival.

Condemnation is a 7" single released in memory of film director, musician, and artist Travis Peterson who passed away in December 2016. Peterson was a close friend of all four artists featured on this record: Ramona Gonzalez, Julia Holter, Cole M.G.N and Nedelle Torrisi. Watch above.

Peterson had collaborated on music videos with Gonzalez, Holter and Torrisi, as well as with Ariel Pink, Glass Candy, Geneva Jacuzzi and many others. The double A side single (also available digitally) is comprised of two different versions of the classic 1993 Depeche Mode original. Depeche Mode was one of Travis’ favourite bands. 

Gonzalez, Holter, M.G.N and Torrisi said: “Aside from being an authentic and talented artist and collaborator, Travis was a great friend beloved by many in Los Angeles and around the world. Known for his infectious laugh, sense of mischief, and passion for art, music, and architecture, Travis was simply a pleasure to be around. We hope you will check out a link to some of his work.”

Proceeds from the sale of this record will go to Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services in Los Angeles.

HEMBREE 'HAD IT ALL' OUT 3RD NOVEMBER 2017 (DOMINO ALL-IN)

DOMINO ALL-IN
Hembree 'Had It All'
GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE

Kansas City band Hembree - Isaac Flynn (lead vocals, guitar), Eric Davis (keyboards, synths) and Garrett Childers (vocals, guitar) – share brand new single ‘Had It All’, from the forthcoming EP of the same name.  ‘Had It All’ premiered via Beats 1, with Zane Lowe calling the track “absolutely fantastic”. 

Their new EP, Had It All, arrives on the heels of Hembree’s second single ‘Holy Water’ and its slow, simmering success. That song, released in November 2016, made it onto the Billboard Alt Radio chart (virtually unheard of for a band without a machine behind them), garnered close to one million streams, and opened the door for Hembree to perform with artists as varied as Cold War Kids and Elvis Costello.

Their sound - smart, tightly constructed rock songs with stick-in-your-head hooks and soaring vocals - makes them great companions to the current crop of Alt-chart-dominating bands – like Alt-J, Lord Huron and Royal Blood – that Hembree are quickly taking their place next to. The 'Had It All' EP is set to be released on the 3rd November via Ribbon Music.
