Mikal Cronin has announced his fourth solo album album, Seeker out October 25 via Merge. Watch the Yasi Salek-directed video for his new single “Show Me" above.

“‘Show Me’ is a song about feeling small in an overwhelming world,” said Cronin. “There’s a not-quite-subtle hint of the Heartbreakers in the instrumentation and arrangement, having asked many friends to play or sing. It’s one of my favorite songs from the album, I hope you like it too.” He wrote most of the album in a cabin in the mountains of Southern California which he was forced to evacuate when the fires happened last year. Heading back to L.A., Mikal made the record with engineer Jason Quever (of Papercuts) and Ty Segall’s Freedom Band backing him. “I wanted to bring you into the room. Jason and I talked about the Beatles’ White Album a lot when placing mics,” says Cronin. “I brought a charred pine cone from the woods to the studio, just in case it would help. Fire—specifically its cycle of purging and reseeding the landscape—is a central theme to the record. Death and rebirth.”

BIG THIEF 'TWO HANDS' OUT 11TH OCTOBER 2019 (DOMINO PUBLISHING)

Big Thief 'Two Hands'

Big Thief had only just finished work on their 3rd album, U.F.O.F. - "the celestial twin" - days before in a cabin studio in the woods of Washington State. Now it was time to birth U.F.O.F.'s sister album - "the earth twin" - Two Hands. 30 miles west of El Paso, surrounded by 3,000 acres of pecan orchards and only a stone's throw from the Mexican border, Big Thief (a.k.a. Adrianne Lenker, Buck Meek, Max Oleartchik, and James Krivchenia) set up their instruments as close together as possible to capture their most important collection of songs yet. Where U.F.O.F.layered mysterious sounds and effects for levitation, Two Hands grounds itself on dried-out, cracked desert dirt. 

In sharp contrast to the wet environment of the U.F.O.F. session, the southwestern Sonic Ranch studio was chosen for its vast desert location. The 105-degree weather boiled away any clinging memories of the green trees and wet air of the previous session. Two Hands had to be completely different - an album about the Earth and the bones beneath it. The songs were recorded live with almost no overdubs. All but two songs feature entirely live vocal takes, leaving Adrianne's voice suspended above the mix in dry air, raw and vulnerable as ever.

British spoken word artist, rapper, poet, novelist and playwright Kate Tempest ahead of her tour has released a new single entitled ‘People’s Faces’ will be released via Fiction on September 13th. This is a rework of the album track by Kate’s longtime producer Dan Carey.

Kate says of the track, “People’s faces (Streatham version)’. ‘People’s faces’ is the final song on my recent album ‘The Book Of Traps And Lessons’. It’s where all of the agonising and soul-searching of the entire record culminates in this very simple expression of deep love for people’s faces and we wanted the song to have the possibility of connecting with as many people as possible. So, we made a version that was shorter and was more song like and that is the version we have here, to play for you now. We are calling it the ‘Streatham version’ as that is where Dan is based and that is where the studio is. All that remains to say is thank you Mary-Anne Hobbs for playing it – this is its first ever play and for everyone listening, I really hope that it connects with you and that you feel it. Thanks a lot.”

Jenifer Jackson shares her 12th studio album 'Paths' and unveils the video for the single 'Sultry Memory'. Watch the video above. 

Jenifer Jackson is an American songwriter, singer and guitarist known for crafting intimate, understated pop songs. She embraces elements of old fashioned country, bossa nova, and folk in her writing and singing, and always with great soulfulness.

Jackson on her new album 'Paths': "I wrote these songs during a rugged road of a time. They have some common threads; the desire, the journey, the effort to get to a place that feels like home. And, the memories of people and experiences collected along the way. I chose the title PATHS because I feel it’s a personal way of describing one’s journey. A path is made just by footsteps that leave their prints on the ground as they’re moving on.

I met Brad Jones in NYC about 20 years ago, having been connected by our mutual publisher. Soon after, he invited me down to Nashville to record a song or two at his new studio, Alex the Great, to see if we liked working together. He called in a couple friends to join us; Micky Grimm on drums and Pat Sansone on keys, guitars and backup vocals.

Brad played bass, the chemistry was magical, and two songs turned into my 12-song record, BIRDS (Parasol Records USA , Ulftone Records, EUR). Since BIRDS, I’ve made 10 more albums, left well-loved NYC and lived 10+ years in Austin, TX, traveled around the world, played with many fine musicians, gotten older, acquired some knowledge and perspective, lost some loved ones and continued my seeking. This Spring, when I sent Brad my new song demos, he replied with great enthusiasm and excitement to record them together. We talked back and forth about production and arrangement ideas, discussed instrumentation, and finally, booked 4 days at Alex the Great."

In addition, he has formed the GLOO collective (Iglooghost, BABii, Kai Whiston) who graced the front cover of Loud and Quiet and will be releasing their album 'XYZ' on the 18th September 2019. Over 9 tracks 'XYZ' mixes the individual members tastes, practices and styles explored in their respective solo material. Joining forces they have created a vibrant and unpredictable record of left field electronic music with nods to experimental club, dance and pop.
