Tamsin Wilson and her band, aptly called Wilsen, are gearing up to release their long-awaited debut album ‘I Go Missing In My Sleep’ via Secret City.
They’ve now shared their latest taste of the album ‘Heavy Steps’. On it, Tamsin’s voice drifts across soothing, folk-infused guitar melodies, a light smattering of piano, sweeps of strings and even waves of soothing synths. It sounds like there’s a lot going on, but it’s all handled with light enough touch that it all seems effortlessly elegant. Tamsin told NPR that the track is “a reminder to look ahead, because sometimes it’s all too easy to do the opposite.” This track certainly makes you look forward to that upcoming debut LP.
Wilsen recorded the LP in upstate New York and at The Farm Studio, located just outside of Philadelphia, with producer Ben Baptie.
New sounds from a new outfit of Laetitia Sadier, the queen of Stereolab. This debut album of the Source Ensemble features some familiar collaborators, as well as guest spots from the likes of Rob Mazurek and Alexis Taylor. The smoothly groovy flavour of all Sadier’s work is still gorgeously present here on 'Find Me Finding You'. Released by Drag City.
The first single, "Undying Love For Humanity", announces its immediacy with protracted rhythms and pronounced vocal expressions. Laetitia proclaims power to the people. Listen below.
Announcing her signing to the 4AD label in truly stunning style, Aldous Harding has unveiled a brand new track 'Horizon' alongside its accompanying video, all of which precedes her run of European live shows later this Spring.
Horizon is the first single taken from a full-length album for the label which is due later in 2017.
Melbourne indie rocker Alex Lahey released her debut EP B-Grade University last year, and now it’s been announced that Alex signed to Dead Oceans. That makes her labelmates with Mitski, Kevin Morby, Slowdive, and more.
The EP gets a digital re-release, and she’s also got a video for “Wes Anderson” from the EP (which means there are now videos for four of the five songs). It’s a quirky video, starring Alex and her plank friend. It was shot, directed, and edited by Jam Nawaz. Check it out above.
Structures and Light is the intricate and esoteric works of synth-harnessing artist Group Zero, aka Cathal Cully from the Belfast based band Girls Names.Its abrasiveness is not for the faint hearted - this is an artist not interest in making an appeal to the mainstream.
The album "brought the naivety and spontaneity back to making music", according to Cully, whose playfulness is truly a diamond in the rough.
Singer/songwriter Rose Elinor Dougall has been a permanent fixture on the indie pop scene since joining the Pipettes at the age of 17. Dougall was born in 1986 in London but grew up in Kent with a musical family. Her father, Alistair, was a singer/songwriter on the Brighton scene, while brother Tom later went onto be the guitarist in Joe Lean & the Jing Jang Jong, then Toy.
She developed a love of music after listening to her parents' folk and reggae records, and after attending Camberwell College of Arts, began writing her own songs. In 2003, she joined the '60s-inspired girl group the Pipettes, who went on to score two Top 40 singles, "Pull Shapes" and "Your Kisses Are Wasted on Me." After five years, she left the band to pursue a solo career and provided guest vocals on tracks by Brakes, Young Playthings, and Dr. Colossus. Her debut album, Without Why, featuring the singles "Another Version of Pop Song" and "Start/Stop/Synchro," was released in 2010.
Dougall also appeared on Mark Ronson's 2010 Record Collection album and then performed as part of his live band the Business International on subsequent tours. She guested on albums by We Are Scientists and Rufus Wainwright, then in 2015 began working with Boxed In's Oli Bayston on her second album, Stellular, which is released on Dougall's own label, Vermillion Records.
'Nothing Feels Natural' is the title of Priests debut full-length album. They Washington DC punks have already released two singles from the album - “JJ” and “Pink White House,” and now they’ve shared the album’s surprisingly pretty and melodic title track. Listen below.
“This song was written when we weren’t sure the record we were trying to make would ever be completed or actually come out, and that is actually what it’s about,” says singer Katie Alice Greer in a press release. “I was really depressed and frustrated. I worked in a restaurant and hated it and thought I would work there forever (because that’s how you think when you’re depressed). This band has never been a hobby or something we do when there’s nothing better to do, so in times when it feels like things aren’t working, my entire life feels like it’s not working. This song came out of that feeling.”
