JACK WHITE – BOARDING HOUSE REACH

Posted in: What's New | No Comments

JACK WHITE – BOARDING...

BOARDING HOUSE REACH sees Jack White expanding his musical palate with perhaps his most ambitious work thus far, a collection of songs that are simultaneously timeless and modern. Written and conceived while holed up in a spartan apartment with literally no outside world distractions, White exclusively used the same kind of gear he had when he was 15 years old (a quarter-inch four-track tape recorder, a simple mixer, and the most basic of instrumentation). The album explores a remarkable range of sonic terrain -- crunching rock ‘n’ roll, electro and hard funk, proto punk, hip hop, gospel blues, and even country -- all remapped and born anew to fit White’s matchless vision and sense of restless experimentation. BOARDING HOUSE REACH is a testament to the breadth of Jack White’s creative power and his bold artistic ambition.

GRATEFUL DEAD – BEST OF...

Career-Spanning Collection Features Live Versions of 19 Songs Selected From The Band’s Vast Catalog of Concert Recordings The Grateful Dead forged its legend on the road, traveling countless miles between 1965 and 1995 to perform a world record 2,318 shows for millions of devoted fans. The band’s refusal to ever play a song the same way twice has endeared generations of fans, many of whom prefer certain live versions of songs over their studio counterparts, and garnered the popular phrase among Dead Heads: “There is nothing like a Grateful Dead concert.” Made for die-hard Dead Heads and new fans alike, THE BEST OF THE GRATEFUL DEAD LIVE is the ultimate live collection, a two-disc set with recordings selected from the band’s official live albums on Warner Bros. and Arista, plus a few tracks from their many archival live releases, beginning with “St. Stephen” – from the group’s first official live album, ...

GEORGE EZRA – STAYING AT TAMARA’S

GEORGE EZRA – STAYING AT...

George Ezra will release Staying At Tamara’s on March 23rd via Columbia Records on CD and vinyl formats. Three years after the release of his chart topping debut album Wanted On Voyage, George returns with a collection of “songs about escapism, dreaming, anxieties and love”. George explains that lead single “‘Paradise’ started life as a melody that I couldn’t get out of my head… Months later I set to writing a song highlighting the undeniable feeling of meeting somebody new and falling for them. We often find ourselves second guessing feelings that we have and trying to work out what it is that they might mean. But with love there is no uncertainty, it is what it is and I liken it to paradise.” Described by NME as an “anthem-in-waiting”, the uninhibited, feel-good “Paradise” is accompanied by a striking, high octane video featuring smashed guitars, cheerleaders, boxers and still-beating hearts.

BLACK FOXXES – REIDI

Reiði' – the Icelandic word for rage – is a fitting title for the second full length record to come from Exeter's Black Foxxes. Born from a restless need to push creative boundaries, and a fear of stagnation in all its forms, the followup to their acclaimed 2016 debut album 'I'm Not Well' sees the three‐piece pushing the vicious bite that fuels their band to new highs, and experimenting with menacing shade and uplifting light alike.

These Are The Days was heralded by the September release of the 1st featured song “A Long Goodbye”, a poignant reflection on the gradual disappearance of a loved one suffering from dementia‐related illness, a theme also central to Arden’s most recent book, Feeding My Mother – Comfort and Laughter in the Kitchen as My Mom Lives with Memory Loss. Additionally, Jann has released a compelling lyric video for ‘Everybody’s Pulling on Me’. “Occasionally ‐ if the stars align ‐ you get the chance to make the perfect album.

STONE TEMPLE PILOTS –...

STONE TEMPLE PILOTS HIGHLY ANTICIPATED NEW SELF-TITLED ALBUM MARKS THE BAND’S FIRST ALBUM WITH THE NEW LEAD SINGER JEFF GUTT Stone Temple Pilots have announced the release for their highly anticipated, new self-titled album, Stone Temple Pilots. Despite being one of the best-selling bands of the 1990s with platinum records and a Grammy to its credit, guitarist Dean DeLeo says, "This new incarnation of STP is focused on what lies ahead. The best way for us to honor our past is to build on it and keep making new music." The band does just that on Stone Temple Pilots. Straight-ahead rockers like the first single "Meadow" and "Never Enough" channels the gritty guitars and swaggering rhythms that STP perfected on Core (1992), Purple (1994), and No. 4 (1999). "Roll Me Under" glides along a nimble bass line before slamming hard into gear during the chorus, where Gutt's muscular baritone roars against a ...
