CHRIS YOUNG – LOSING...

Chris Young’s upcoming album, Losing Sleep, is due October 20 on RCA Records Nashville. Working toward his third album release in under two years, Chris co-wrote every single song for the first time in a remarkable show of creative force, in addition to taking his third turn behind the board as co-producer. “Every album you make as an artist, you want to continue to grow,” Chris explains. “And you also want people to be in love with it. That’s such a difficult thing to balance, but I think there’s a little bit of something for  everybody on this record.” Fresh off the most successful record of his prolific career, Losing Sleep finds Chris more inspired than ever before.

NIALL HORAN – FLICKER

Niall Horan was one‐fifth of One Direction, the biggest boy band of all time. One of the group's most prolific songwriters, and a fine guitarist as well as a singer, he began a solo career after the group went on hiatus in 2016. Born September 13, 1993 in Mullingar, Co. Westmeath, Ireland, Horan became interested in music early. After his elder brother failed to play the guitar he had received as a Christmas present, Niall picked it up and taught himself to play by watching instructional YouTube videos. Discovering he also had a talent for singing, he began writing songs and performing while still in his early teens, even bagging a support slot with former X Factor contestant Lloyd Daniels at the famous Academy club in Dublin. At the age of 16 he himself auditioned for The X Factor, and the rest is history. One Direction, formed on the show, went on to become one of ...

ROBERT PLANT – CARRY FIRE

ROBERT PLANT – CARRY...

In his nearly 50-year career, former Led Zeppelin vocalist and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member Robert Plant has gone to far distant lands as intrepid musical explorer, collaborating with musicians like Alison Krauss, Buddy Miller, and Patty Griffin. To write and produce lullaby and... The Ceaseless Roar, though, he returned to his native England, enriched by all he has seen, heard, and investigated. For the last few years, Plant has lived and recorded in America, working with musicians in Nashville, residing for a spell in Austin, and making time to drive along the byways of Mississippi, fueled by the sound of the delta blues that has inspired him since he was a teenager (a car journey recollected in the new "Turn It Up"). He had previously traversed North and West Africa, following the trail of the blues back to the desert, where he famously joined nomadic Tuareg musicians ...

THE FRONT BOTTOMS – GOING GREY

THE FRONT BOTTOMS –...

GOING GREY finds The Front Bottoms embracing the impermanence of life and finding flexibility in the face of change. Having relocated band headquarters to the coastal New Jersey community of Asbury Park during the demoing stages of the album, GOING GREY sees the band acknowledging the nostalgia of simpler times with admiration, while welcoming the inevitable unknowns of life. Comprised of guitarist/vocalist Brian Sella and drummer Mathew Uychich, the New Jersey-based band made their Fueled By Ramen debut with 2015’s acclaimed studio album, “BACK ON TOP,” highlighted by singles “HELP” and “Cough It Out” – the latter named by NPR Music as one of its “Favorite Songs Of 2015.” The album earned copious critical attention, with NOISEY declaring “What really hits home with The Front Bottoms is the ragged honesty and raw wound emotional urgency of the songs.” The A.V. Club praised The Front Bottoms’ “steady maturation,” noting the band had ...

THE GLORIOUS SONS – YOUNG BEAUTIFUL FOOLS

Posted in: What's New | No Comments

THE GLORIOUS SONS –...

The Glorious Sons' second full-length album, Young Beauties & Fools, is all about honesty. More specifically, it's about exploring the adventures (and frequent misadventures) of main songwriter Brett Emmons in the truest way. It's also an album where The Glorious Sons — rounded out by Brett’s older brother Jay Emmons (guitar), Chris Koster (guitar), Adam Paquette (drums) and Chris Huot (bass) — capture all the listlessness and confusion of young adulthood in 10 doses of modern rock. Glorious Sons’ hardscrabble tales come naturally. A high-spirited rock band with blue collar roots, they truly found themselves when Brett quit school in 2013 to join them as lead singer. Subsequent years of hard touring and hard partying — sometimes in places so sketchy, as Brett puts it, “There was no electricity in the building” — provided fuel for the songs on Young Beauties & Fools. Whether it’s the rock 'n' roll bender “My Pour Heart,” the not-so-classic boy-meets-girl story ...

BECK – COLORS

BECK – COLORS

Colors was recorded at Greg Kurstin's Los Angeles studio with Beck and Kurstin playing nearly every instrument themselves between 2013 and 2017. Beck described the recording process to NME saying "for the first year, we were experimenting and there was a lot of trial and error. I was touring constantly while making it, so I was attempting to bring some of that energy back to the studio, which isn't always the easiest thing to do. ‘Dreams’ was one of the early songs to come along and make me think the idea had legs.” "Dreams" was released on June 15, 2015 as the lead single from an upcoming album, later announced to be titled Colors. The upbeat track was inspired by MGMT and marked contrast to the somber mood of Beck's previous album Morning Phase. Beck said at the time, "I was really trying to make something that would be good to play live." The song was heavily ...
