Australia's Middle Kids debut self-titled EP was released on February 17th, 2017.
The three-piece, led by vocalist / guitarist Hannah Joy, and producer / multi-instrumentalist Tim Fitz, with Harry Day on drums, first came to public attention with the release of their debut single 'Edge Of Town' in May last year. Sir Elton John declared himself a fan of the song, added it to his Apple Music playlist and aired it on his Beats 1 radio show. Triple J placed the song on high rotation, while in the US, the song has had airplay support on over 30 AAA/Alt stations. To date, 'Edge Of Town'has accumulated over 3 million streams on Spotify. Not bad for a band that, when they recorded the single, hadn't played a single show.
American indietronic three-piece SON LUX reports back with new music that also supports a good cause. Remedy is the name of a brand new EP which arrives on May 12 via This is Meru. All profits from the sale of this release will go directly to the Southern Poverty Law Center, a non-profit organization helping the most vulnerable members of American society. Remedy was written in the week of the US elections 2016 and the result clearly had an impact on the sound and lyrical content of the band’s first release since the 2015 LP Bones.
A first track called Dangerous can be listend to via the stream ABOVE.
Big Thief have announced the follow-up to their great 2016 album Masterpiece. The band's forthcoming LP Capacity will be available via Saddle Creek. They also shared the music video for their first single, “Mythological Beauty.” Watch above.
“There is a darker darkness and a lighter light on this album,” said singer and guitarist Adrianna Lenker in a statement. “The songs search for a deeper level of self-acceptance, to embrace the world within and without. I think Masterpiece began that process, as a first reaction from inside the pain, and Capacity continues that examination with a wider perspective.”
Award-winning songwriter and performer Emily Barker is set to return in May with her new album ‘Sweet Kind Of Blue’. Barker is known for her blend of roots influences from country & blues to English folk via 60s pop. The new album was recorded at the legendary Memphis studio Sam Phillips Recording Service and produced by Matt Ross-Spang (Jason Isbell, Margo Price), with a cast of Memphis music royalty joining Emily as her backing band.
Watch this video above for a taste of the upcoming album.
Emily Barker will be performing at Rough Trade East, London on 20th May, 2017.
Amber Coffman has shared a new solo song. Listen to “No Coffee” above. It’s taken from her forthcoming debut solo album, City of No Reply, which arrives later this year via Columbia. So far, she’s shared one other song, “All to Myself.”
Coffman recently opened up about her departure from Dirty Projectors, as well as the end of her relationship with that band’s frontman (and now sole member), Dave Longstreth. “I consider it a loss to no longer be involved with Dirty Projectors, but ultimately walking away was the only healthy choice for me,” she said. “I’m really proud of the album I made and my hope is that people will listen to it on its own terms. I’ve waited a long time to share it and I’m looking forward to it.”
Aldous Harding releases her second album, Party via 4AD. Following the recent single ‘Horizon’ – a lover’s call to arms which also features on her 4AD debut – a new track and video goes online today. Watch ‘Imagining My Man’ above.
Party was produced with the award-winning John Parish (PJ Harvey, Sparklehorse) in Bristol, a world away from Harding’s New Zealand home. As well as contributions from Parish, Perfume Genius’s Mike Hadreas lends vocals to ‘Imagining My Man’ and Party closer ‘Swell Does The Skull’. Igniting interest with her eponymous debut album released just two years ago, Aldous Harding quickly became a name murmured on many lips. She’s known for her sinister torch songs, gentle laments and eerie odes delivered with a charismatic combination of hubris, shrewd wit and quiet horror. Party introduces a new talent to the stark and unpopulated dramatic realm where Kate Bush and Scott Walker reside.
The Jesus And Mary Chain are set to release their long-awaited new album ‘Damage and Joy’ on March 24th on ADA / Warner Music. The album is their first since ‘Munki’ was released backed in the summer of 1998.
Fronted by the Reid brothers Jim and William, The Jesus And Mary Chain first reformed to play the Coachella festival back in 2007. Despite regular touring – most notably a 2015 world tour which revisited their landmark album ‘Psychocandy’ – it took some time before they could agree on a plan to record a much-mooted seventh album.
'Always Sad' is the second release from the new album adter the first single 'Amputation' which was released late last year. Watch the video above.
