RANDY NEWMAN – DARK...

Dark Matter, Randy Newman's first album of new material in nine years, is the follow-up to 2008's acclaimed Harps and Angels, which the Guardian called "the work of a true master of popular song." Produced by long-time Newman collaborators Mitchell Froom, Lenny Waronker, and David Boucher, the album includes songs about Vladimir Putin, the Kennedy brothers, Sonny Boy Williamson, science vs. religion, love and loss, and more. Randy Newman's many honors include six Grammys, three Emmys, and two Academy Awards. He was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2002 and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2013—the same year he was given an Ivor Novello PRS for Music Special International Award. Mostly recently, Newman was presented with a PEN New England Song Lyrics of Literary Excellence Award in June 2014.

HUNDRED SUNS – THE...

HUNDRED SUNS have gained a momentous following and garnered notable press, from Alternative Press, Revolver, and BBC Radio 1 Rock Show with Daniel P. Carter, having only released two self-produced singles, “Fractional” and “Bedburner”. Formed in 2013 by Cory Brandan (Norma Jean), Ryan Leger (ex- Every Time I Die), and Chris LeMasters (Dead and Divine) the band of seasoned musicians have created a progressive rock sound that is sure to revitalize fickle music lovers. “It's definitely been important to us that the standard of music we create aligns with the emotion of the content behind it. From lyrics to sound, it all has to make sense. We don't want to just make a song that we can lose our minds to. We want to insert a mood that wasn't in the room previously.” – Cory Brandan “We started this band hungry to create something new, inspiring, and different than the music we had previously made. ...

SONREAL – ONE LONG DREAM

Flanked by a squad of quirky characters unafraid to rock bowl cuts and mustaches, spitting bars like nobody’s business, and melting hearts left and right, SonReal would be just as at home in a Wes Anderson or Farrelly Brothers movie as he is behind a mic. Hip-hop has never seen a maestro quite like the British Columbia-born rapper, singer, and songwriter. That’s why he’s already earned multiple Canadian Juno Award nominations including “Rap Recording of the Year” for “Everywhere We Go” in 2014, racked up millions of Spotify streams and YouTube views, and packed shows all over the continent. However, his story begins in the small town of Vernon. Growing up, he’d watch his father sing and play country songs on an acoustic guitar with rapt attention. By high school, he started frequenting the local skate park, and became infatuated with the lifestyle of music and skateboarding. At the time, his musical tastes spanned everything from Guns ...

EAGLES OF DEATH METAL –...

During Eagles of Death Metal’s November 13, 2015 concert at the Bataclan Theatre in Paris, gunmen entered the venue and opened fire on the crowd, leaving 89 dead. On February 16, 2016, the band returned to Paris to complete their show as part of The Nos Amis Tour¸ performing at the Olympia Hall just a short distance away from the Bataclan (still closed at the time). This release encapsulates the pure emotion and intensity of that extraordinary Olympia concert and is dedicated to all those who lost their lives at the Bataclan. Before the show, Eagles of Death Metal co‐founder and front man Jesse Hughes said: “The people of Paris have always been incredible to us, and our feeling of love towards this beautiful city and its people has been reinforced a million times over this past month. Hearing the stories of the survivors, the injured and those who have lost loved ones has been ...

SOCCER MOMMY – SOCCER...

“Passed you on a side street/Brushed across your wrist like a razorblade.” Those are the first lines from ‘Try,’ the second track off Soccer Mommy’s Fat Possum debut, Collection. It’s also a perfect encapsulation of the band itself: quietly catchy, surprisingly confrontational, the kind of music that sneaks up on you and makes a permanent first impression. Soccer Mommy is the project of Sophie Allison, a nineteenyear- old Nashville native and musical wunderkind. Sophie built her reputation as a DIY artist, recording her own songs and releasing them for free on Bandcamp over the last few years. Collection compiles the best of Sophie’s Bandcamp work as well as a few new songs, written, mixed and produced herself. The songs portray an artist fully-formed, mature far beyond her age. Sophie sings of toxic relationships, infatuations, and all the experiences of being a teenage girl. Or, as Sophie describes her subject matter,“crush stuff with a hint of ...

BRETT ELDREDGE – BRETT...

Two years, four chart-topping songs and one smash Christmas record (Glow) later, Brett Eldredge announced on TODAY the follow-up to his No. 1 album Illinois. Joining Kathie Lee and Hoda to broadcast the 2017 CMT Music Awards nominations, Eldredge revealed that his brand new, self-titled album is due August 4. "It's kind of crazy to see an album cover with just your name on it," Eldredge said. "I think that shows what I want to say with this album. Maybe it takes a little bit of guts to put out a self-titled album - but if it's 100% honestly you, then that should come across through the music. That's my name and I hope my fans love me for me. Hopefully they feel the connection of these songs and they help them through their everyday lives. Because that's why I make this music." The album will feature Eldredge's latest Top 30 and ...
