Sonic Cinema has teamed up with the formidable talents of British musical powerhouses KT Tunstall, Mara Carlyle and composer Max de Wardener to present a brand new BFI-commissioned score to Borzage’s classic. Perhaps the most sublimely lyrical of all the silent-era romances, this tale of transformational love sees Charles Farrell’s sewage worker and Janet Gaynor’s street waif rise above poverty and war to be together. Martin Scorsese’s observation that Borzage’s films unfold in ‘lover’s time’ was never more apt, and the tender emotions Borzage captures build to an unforgettable, transcendental climax.
USA 1927 Directed by Frank Borzage With Janet Gaynor, Charles Farrell, Ben Bard c.118 min Film PG
It’s been a long time coming but we’re delighted to announce that FOUND have delivered their follow-up to 2011’s ‘factorycraft’ with ‘Cloning’ scheduled for release on November 6th. Never ones to rush the creative process, the ridiculously inventive BAFTA-winning robot-makers, sound installation artists and 7” ‘vinyl’ chocolatiers are now an analogue synth-drenched duo comprising Ziggy Campbell and Kev Sim.
Largely forgoing the edgy guitars of its predecessor for a John Carpenter, Tangerine Dream and Tristram Cary-inspired miasma of apocalyptic synth, ‘Cloning’ is a brilliantly cinematic reminder of why we loved FOUND so much in the first place.

Adrian Crowley has shared the new video for 'Follow If You Must' which was directed by award-winning Irish film maker, Eoin Heaney. Shot one day in a room in Dublin city centre. The track was recorded by Stephen Shannon and features backing vocals by Katie Kim.
Following the release of their excellent album Tightropes earlier this year, Tall Tales and the Silver Lining announce the release of the Unknown Forces digital EP via on Other Music Recording Co. Chief songwriter and bandleader Trevor Beld Jimenez calls the track “Unknown Forces” off their latest full-length album “a little prayer.” On the new EP, “Unknown Forces” is joined by two unreleased tracks from the Tightropes album sessions, “Burning Out” and “Stay Away from Me,“ and a live recording of Tightropes’ “Waves” from an in-studio performance at LA public broadcaster KCSN.
One half of Rainer and a fledging producer in his own right, Casually Here first caught our attention with his soraring instrumental track, Walk. With a keen ear for 'night bus' sounds akin to mysterious peers like Burial, Casually Here's sound is incredibly versatile - which is highlighted on his recent EP, 'Kept'. The opening track Ode 2 is the sound of R&B crossing the road and meeting half-step, before succumbing to the sounds of big-room trance mutations, whilst Underground Grotto sounds like a transcendental hymn that would get played over the speakers in a hazy hippy spa retreat.
As Strange Talk delves into new styles and sounds with this EP, it's fitting that the first track is called "Something's Bout To Change" - listen below.
"E.V.O.L.U.T.I.O.N" tells the story of our journey over the last few years and where we are as artists," Sidhu tells Billboard. "We wanted to evolve our sound and take a more electronic direction, and we’re passionate about the new music we’re creating. We’ve never been more driven with our music as we are now, and we hope that’s evident in the songs, the art and videos, and our live show."
Resurrected garage pop trio Philadelphia Grand Jury released the first single 'Crashing & Burning Part II' from their post-reunion album earlier this month.
Bringing together the band’s original lineup of frontman Berkfinger, MC Bad Genius and Art Vs. Science drummer Dan W Sweat, new album Summer of Doom was recorded largely live with Powderfinger and Augie March producer Tim Whitten. It’s the follow-up to 2009 debut Hope Is For Hopers we thought we might never hear after the band parted ways in 2011, later reuniting for a series of brief live dates in 2013 and 2014.
Listen to the single 'Crashing & Burning Part II' below.
Yorkston/Thorne/Khan release their collaborative debut album titled ‘Everything Sacred’. Listen to their cover of Ivor Cutler’s ‘Little Black Buzzer’ featuring the trio joined by the superb and distinctive young Irish singer Lisa O’Neill ABOVE.
Yorkston/Thorne/Khan are an experimental group that includes James Yorkston, one of the most “influential singer/songwriters on the Scottish folk scene”, Suhail Yusuf Khan, award winning sarangi player and classical singer from New Delhi and Jon Thorne, best known as jazz double bass player with electro outfit Lamb.
This is Scottish-Irish-Indian-English music in the raw, Yorkston's familiar steel guitar strings pulled, pushed and bent into more unfamiliar acoustic drones, the bass dropping anchors through the floor. Rather than world music per se, this sounds more idiosyncratic, a temporary structure bivouacking by the side of the indie-folk, art music tradition, while its widening horizons extend back to the Sixties heyday of the Incredible String Band, and forward to this singular album's satellite orbit over the folk music, Indian classical and indie music of today – all these musical ley lines threaded into a new kind of eclectic, domestic setting.
Martin Courtney has shared two live performances to coincide with the recent release of his debut solo album titled 'Many Moons'. The first is a cover of Pavement’s “Major Leagues” for Sirius XMU and the second a live performance of “Airport Bar” for KCRW.

"The most important thing is bearing your soul and having no barrier between your heart and the lyrics and the piece of paper, and being fearless in terms of melody and direction. That’s the thing that holds human beings back, in everything, not just in what I’m talking about, everything - fear... of whatever it might be." Steve Mason - on the songwriting process

Canadian electro-pop duo Junior Boys have announced details of Big Black Coat, their first album since 2011.
The album – due on City Slang in February 2016 -came out of a shift in focus for the pair of Jeremy Greenspan and Matthew Didemus, who have been pursuing solo projects over the past five years, with Greenspan also working on albums from Caribou and Jessy Lanza.
The 11-track album takes inspiration from Yellow Magic Orchestra, Plastikman, Robert Hood and Dan Bell, as well as giving a nod to ESP’s 1986 proto-house classic ‘It’s You’, though the label explains it still features the disco and R&B influence of their earlier records.
