    COVES - Peel

    COVES - PeelCOVES - Peel - PIAS AmericaCOVES - Peel
    Coves released their debut album ‘Soft Friday’ in March 2014 to critical acclaim (“cold-blooded revenge pop that strikes like a shard of shattered plate to the heart”, NME, 9/10; “splurges of psychedelic colour, a hatful of great songs”, Q, 4/5; “a terrific debut full of scuzzed up guitars, dirty synths, nihilistic lyrics and Wood's magnificently bored, though never boring, vocals”, Uncut). It saw the likes of Zane Lowe, Huw Stephens, Lauren Laverne and Nick Grimshaw become fans and critics liken Coves to such disparate acts as Spiritualized, Lana Del Ray, The Shangri-La’s and Brooklyn trend-setters Crystal Stilts and Vivian Girls.  Now they’re back with ‘Peel’. First single ‘Stormy’ was released in December to a flurry of online support and anticipation.

    KEITH URBAN - Ripcord

    KEITH URBAN - RipcordKEITH URBAN - Ripcord - Capitol NashvilleKEITH URBAN - Ripcord
    Ripcord features a virtual who's who of creative collaborators for an album that Keith Urban says was his most exhilarating album to make, both musically and creatively.  This album's journey began back in January, 2015 and took me to a lot of unexplored people and places. added Urban. The end result was the recording and exploring of more songs then I've ever done before and carving that down to what I felt constituted RIPCORD. For the 13-track album, which has already produced his 19th and 20th No. 1 songs, Urban amassed an eclectic group of Grammy, CMA, ACM Award-winning writers and co-producers, who that have collectively worked with the likes of Adele, Jason Aldean, David Bowie, Luke Bryan, Kelly Clarkson, Brett Eldredge, Fun, Lady Gaga, Jay-Z, Madonna, Daft Punk, Pink and Taylor Swift. They include new collaborations with Jeff Bhasker, busbee, Greg Wells and Nile Rodgers, as well as those who Urban has worked with before, including Shane McAnally, Ross Cooperman, Dann Huff and Nathan Chapman all of whom worked with Urban on his previous No. 1 album FUSE. Getting to work with people like this was unlike anything I've envisioned before, said Urban. It's the result of writing, reaching, imagining, and following the muse every step of the way.

    ANOHNI - Hopelessness - Secretly Canadian
    ANOHNI has collaborated with Oneohtrix Point Never and Hudson Mohawke on the artist's latest work, Hopelessness. Late last year, ANOHNI, the lead singer from Antony and the Johnsons, released 4 DEGREES", a bombastic dance track celebrating global boiling and collapsing biodiversity. Rather than taking refuge in good intentions, ANOHNI gives voice to the attitude sublimated within her behavior as she continues to consume in a fossil fuel-based economy. ANOHNI released 4 DEGREES, the first single from her upcoming album HOPELESSNESS, to support the Paris climate conference this past December.

    KEITH URBAN - Ripcord

    KEITH URBAN - RipcordSPOOKYLAND - Beauty Already Beautiful - PIAS AmericaKEITH URBAN - Ripcord
    23-year-old Australian Marcus Gordon isn't interested in the routine or regular. As the singer and songwriter of Spookyland, he wrangles profanity, twisted beauty and a fascination with life's paradoxes into the service of highly personal. Spookyland make music where the widescreen romance of alt.country/folk rock meets something more intriguingly theatrical, urban and morally complex. Their debut album, Beauty Already Beautiful is 11 dynamic and often epic songs in which the singer takes a scalpel to experience, exposing his own frailties and hurt while also laying bare our collective fatally flawed nature.

    DIANA KRALL - Stepping Out [Vinyl]

    DIANA KRALL - Stepping Out [Vinyl]DIANA KRALL - Stepping Out [Vinyl] - Justin Time Records
    Stepping Out launched the career of one of our generation’s greatest Jazz artists. “Diana Krall's 1993 debut shows that she had the goods right from the get-go. Krall sings with honesty, subtlety, and persuasion while playing the piano with head-shaking authority, both as accompanist - she offers amazing asides in between vocal phrases - and as an absolutely A-one improviser.” (Zan Stewart). The Justin Time Essentials Collection introduces the album to a new generation of fans, but this time with an added bonus track from the original sessions – Diana’s incredible arrangement of “Summertime”.

    UPCOMING RELEASES

    OSCAR - Cut And Paste

    OSCAR - Cut And PasteOSCAR - Cut And Paste - Wichita RecordsOSCAR - Cut And Paste
    After a string of rambunctious, critically acclaimed singles, Oscar is delighted to announce that his hotly anticipated debut LP, Cut And Paste. You can hear the clear influence of a West London upbringing in the basement rhythm of Be Good or the dub bassline and echo of the anthemic, uplifting Good Things. You're hit by the boom-bap breakbeat of his beloved mid-90s hip hop on Breaking My Phone and Beautiful Words, before swooning to his more tender side on Only Friend, where Oscar is joined by Marika Hackman for a gorgeous duet over a sea of bubbling synths, or Fifteen, an addictive love song, ragged at the edges and wearing its heart defiantly on its sleeve.

    DIGITALISM - Mirage

    DIGITALISM - MirageDIGITALISM - Mirage - PIAS AmericaDIGITALISM - Mirage
    German duo Digitalism make a welcome return with the announcement of their third full-length record titled “Mirage.” With dashes of disco, French touch, prog rock, rave and hip-hop thrown into an eclectic sound palette that colors “Mirage,” this wonderfully refreshing soundscape drops worldwide on May 13th via Magnetism Recordings/PIAS. From the full-power electro-indie of “Battlecry,” to the euphoric melancholy of “Utopia,” both of which serve as welcomed reminders of the duo’s unique sensibility for storming riffs and stunning melodies. Five years on from their sophomore record 'I Love You, Dude' – the German duo have wisely resisted any vogues or trends. Instead, they present a record that takes their much-loved sound and opens it up to new permutations and possibilities.

    HARD WORKING AMERICANS - Rest In Chaos [Indie Exclusive Low Price]

    HARD WORKING AMERICANS - Rest In Chaos [Indie Exclusive Low Price]HARD WORKING AMERICANS - Rest In Chaos [Indie Exclusive Low Price] - Melvin Records
    Let me explain what it’s like to summarize Rest In Chaos. What you have here is, in the first place, the book of Genesis as deftly reconceived by Todd Snider who has been inhabited by a spirit resembling Philip K. Dick. The rest of the Hard Working Americans are under the direction (or perhaps in the thrall) of an older wiser Jimi Hendrix and a Frank Zappa no less exacting than he was when he departed. It is rock’n’roll music, past, present and future, and that’s no dream, it’s just a fact. There are moments here when the walls of Babel might be falling, there are moments when they are reinvented and every time you try to pin it down, it shows you something else.
