Nilüfer Yanya Shares New Track & Video for “Tears”

Listen to Tears HERE

Watch the video for “In Your Head” HERE

 

Nilüfer Yanya, London’s 23 year-old “effortlessly smooth new soul star” (The FADER) is sharing the track ‘Tears’ today – the third new track from her debut full-length album Miss Universe. “Tears” continues to show off the dynamic cohesion of Nilüfer’s upcoming record while flaunting its poppier side. Miss Universe will be released on March 22nd via ATO RecordsBeats 1 Radio’s Zane Lowe featured ‘Tears’ as a World First on his Beats 1 show this afternoon.

 

Tears’ comes accompanied by a lyric video featuring the branding of the shadowy ‘WWAYH’ (WE WORRY ABOUT YOUR HEALTH™) organization whose darkly funny automated phoneline interludes are peppered throughout Miss Universe. The mind department of WE WORRY ABOUT YOUR HEALTH™ issued this statement: “Despite previous claims of crying being natural response to stress and regarded as healthy, recent studies have unearthed evidence that proves this claim as untrue. It can also simulate similar responses in others to varying degrees, primarily targeting the vulnerable (infants, children and elderly) which makes it a socially irresponsible behaviour. The Body department would like to add it is also a waste of bodily fluids and self destructive to one’s health hereby deeming the act of crying illegal.”

 

Upon release in January, “In Your Head” was proclaimed one of NPR’s “20 Best Songs We Heard for January”, a Sunday Times Culture ‘Hottest Track’, one of The Guardian’s ‘50 Great Tracks For February’ and landed in The FADER’s ‘20 best rock songs right now’ playlist – setting the tone for what’s still to come with the release of Miss Universe in March. Largely recorded in the same remote Penzance studio she used to jam in with her uncle Joe – a former musician himself – Miss Universe features co-productions with both her former school guitar teacher The Invisible’s Dave Okumu and her live bandmates Jazzi Bobbi and Luke Bower, as well as producers John Congleton, Oli Barton-Wood, Will Archer and M.T. Hadley.

 

2019 started in whirlwind fashion with Nilufer touring across North America in January and February with Sharon Van Etten, including a stop at LA’s Ace Hotel Theater next week. Next, Nilüfer will embark on her biggest U.K., Europe and Turkey headlining tour to date in April. Following that, she will head back to the US for a headlining date at NYC’s Rough Trade on July 23. Tickets for that show will be on-sale this Friday, February 22nd at 12pm EST HERE.

 

 

Though she’d been writing songs in her head since she was six, and on the guitar since she was 12, it took a long time for Nilüfer Yanya to work up the courage to show anyone her music. “I knew I wanted to sing, but the idea of actually having to do it was really horrifying,” says the 23-year-old. When she was finally persuaded to do so, by a music teacher in West London where she grew up, she says “it was horrible. I loved it”.

 

At 18, Nilüfer – who is of Turkish-Irish-Bajan heritage – uploaded a few demos to SoundCloud. Though she’s preternaturally shy, her music – which uniquely blends elements of soul and jazz into intimate pop songs with electronic flourishes and a newly expressed grungy guitar sound – isn’t. And it didn’t take long for it to catch people’s attention. She signed with independent New York label ATO, following three EPs on esteemed london indie label Blue Flowers, and earned a place on the BBC Sound of 2018 longlist. She also supported the likes of The xx, Interpol, Broken Social Scene and Mitski on tour.

 

Now, Nilüfer is ready to release her debut album, Miss Universe. Though she recorded much of it in the same remote Cornwall studio she used to jam in as a much younger person, it is bigger and more ambitious than anything she has done before. ‘Angels’, with its muted, harmonic riffs, channels ideas “of paranoid thoughts and anxiety” – a theme that runs through the album, not least in its conceptual spoken word interludes which emanate from a fictional health management company WE WORRY ABOUT YOUR HEALTH™. “You sign up, and you pay a fee,” explains Nilüfer of the automated messages, which are littered through the album and are narrated by the titular Miss Universe. “They sort out all of your dietary requirements, and then they move onto medication, and then maybe you can get a better organ or something… and then suddenly it starts to get a bit weird. You’re giving them more of you and to what end?”

Rodrigo y Gabriela Announce New Album Mettavolution, out April 26

 

HEAR FIRST TRACK – “ECHOES (PINK FLOYD COVER)”

 

PRE-ORDER METTAVOLUTION

 

Five years since their last album, Mexican acoustic rock guitar duo Rodrigo y Gabriela are ready to embark on the next chapter of their remarkable story, with the release of the most ambitious music of their 20-year career together. Entitled Mettavolution, the band’s new LP will be released April 26 via ATO Records and is available to preorder here (LINK). Tune in to a Facebook Live event from Rod and Gab’s studio in Mexico today at 12 noon ET.

 

Three years in the making, Mettavolution brings together Rod and Gab’s passionate interest in Buddhism, the history of human evolution and the liberation of the potential we have as a species; all expressed through the medium of two acoustic guitars. Conceived and composed in their studio in Ixtapa on the Mexican Pacific Coast, then road-tested in South America and the USA in 2017, before more fine tuning and further tweaks on their Australian tour of 2018, a long list of new material has been distilled down to six new Rodrigo y Gabriela compositions and one audacious, jaw-dropping cover song.

 

Rodrigo y Gabriela have shared a first taste of the album in the form of “Echoes”, a cover of the Pink Floyd track, which takes up the whole of the second half of Mettavolution. Long-time Floyd fans, Rod and Gab lovingly pay homage to the prog-classic song off of the band’s 1971 opus Meddle, while at the same time weaving their own golden threads into its timeless textures, to create something exciting, contemporary and unforgettable.

 

Deep-rooted fans who discovered Rod and Gab through their 2006 self-titled breakout album have long recognized the Mexicans’ mastery of their instruments. And while Rodrigo’s shimmering, hummingbird flourishes hovering over Gabriela’s extraordinary engine-room rhythm section are ever-present on Mettavolution, what sets this new record apart is the laser-guided focus on melody, energy and beat. There is not an ounce of excess baggage on the fresh, dynamic tunes that Rod and Gab present here, first on a white-hot side one that acknowledges the duo’s thrash-metal roots back in Mexico City and then gives way to the aforementioned incredible new arrangement of “Echoes,” inspiringly reimagined for two acoustic guitars.

 

Rodrigo and Gabriela: “We are big Pink Floyd fans. That track, specially the live in Pompeii version means a lot to us, we even made a huge visual reference in our video for “Hanuman.” Besides that, the lyrics are even more relevant now than they were 45 years ago, the search for knowledge about ourselves, it’s becoming a key element for survival these days, that’s what evolution is all about at the end of the day.”

 

On working with noted producer Dave Sardy, the guitarists add: “Everything was ready for it, all the circumstances around the idea of agreeing to work with a producer came together right at the time we talked to Sardy. And our intuition was right. We talked to a lot of great producers before him but the conditions just weren’t there. When we talked to Dave it just felt we had arrived.” Recorded in Los Angeles, Sardy, — best-known for his work with Oasis, LCD Soundsystem, A Perfect Circle and Band of Horses — has helped Rod and Gab to a new recording career pinnacle.

 

Through relentless touring and terrific word-of-mouth support, Rodrigo y Gabriela have established themselves as a hugely in-demand live act, particularly in America, where they sold out the Hollywood Bowl (two nights) and the Red Rocks Amphitheatre, both as recently as summer 2018. They have also sold out multiple nights at the Royal Albert Hall in London, Le Zenith in Paris and Radio City Music Hall in New York, not to mention venues in Australia, Japan and Europe. With career album sales well in excess of 1.5 million worldwide, Rodrigo y Gabriela have established themselves as globally successful artists who are eager to write new chapters in their already illustrious story.

 

Rodrigo y Gabriela will be touring throughout the year. North American tour dates will be announced soon.

Nilüfer Yanya Announces Debut Album, Miss Universe, With Video for “In Your Head”

“London’s most exciting pop artist” Pitchfork 

 

“Her voice will surprise you, her raw, romantic songs about love and loss will break your heart, and you better get ready to hear more.” -Noisey

 

Boldness is warranted when you’ve got a hook as devastating as the one that Nilüfer Yanya repeats” -The New York Times

 

 

Pre-order Miss Universe HERE

Nilüfer Yanya, London’s 23 year-old “effortlessly smooth new soul star” (The FADER) has today announced her hotly-anticipated debut full length album Miss Universe. The record will be released onMarch 22 via ATO Records and launches today with the unveiling of Nilüfer’s new single and video “In Your Head”.

 

The stunning video for ‘In Your Head’ was filmed in the Las Vegas desert by longtime creative collaborator ENERGYFORCE and mirrors the track’s thrilling choruses and frantic energy. Speaking about “In Your Head”, Nilüfer said, “Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me and I get trapped. There’s the things I need disguised as things I think I only want, things I think I’m choosing out of choice not necessity. Sometimes this only becomes clear in retrospect, or maybe it will never become clear. Some people may call that being paranoid. I think that’s what I wrote the song about , but what’s interesting to me, and what I think I was trying to get at, is the illusion of freedom.”

 

Miss Universe was largely recorded in the same remote Penzance studio she used to jam in with her uncle Joe – a former musician himself – and features co-productions with both her former school guitar teacher The Invisible’s Dave Okumu and her live bandmates Jazzi Bobbi and Luke Bower, as well as producers John CongletonOli Barton-WoodWill Archer and M.T. Hadley.

 

2019 is starting in whirlwind fashion with Nilufer touring throughout February with Sharon Van Ettenacross North America. The tour kicks off in Washington, D.C. on February 6 before hitting several major cities including NYC, LA, Chicago, Philadelphia, San Francisco and more. Following that run, Nilüfer will embark on her biggest U.K., Europe and Turkey headline tour to date in April, beginning with a show in Nilüfer’s father’s ancestral home Istanbul. Tickets for all of her upcoming tour dates are available from HERE.

 

Following her inclusion in the BBC’s influential Sound Of poll in 2018, Nilüfer was recently tipped as anArtist to Watch in 2019 by The Guardian, The Independent, NYLON, and more. The foundations are firmly laid for Nilüfer Yanya’s debut album – and her confirmation as a rare and utterly original British songwriting talent.

The Claypool Lennon Delirium Share New Video For “Blood And Rockets”

Listen to “Blood and Rockets- Movement I, Saga of Jack Parsons – Movement II, Too the Moon”

PRE-ORDER SOUTH OF REALITY

 

South Of Reality, The Claypool Lennon Delirium’s epic sophomore album might be just the antidote this sick world needs. Music so potent it could repel an asteroid impact from space, these seasoned warriors of psychedelia have crafted timeless songs that may as well be chiseled in stone. The monolithic dream team’s new record was produced by Les Claypool and Sean Lennonthemselves, and engineered and mixed by Les Claypool at his own Rancho Relaxo studio in Sonoma County, California.

ATO Records will release South of Reality on February 22, 2019; pre-order for the record is now available. The Claypool Lennon Delirium will play select dates in California this December. Pre-sale tickets will be available on Thursday and tickets will be on-sale for the general public this Friday at 12pm local time (all tour dates below). Stay tuned for more tour news soon!

 

Rolling Stone is sharing “Blood and Rockets” from South of Reality today, as well as an interview with Claypool and Lennon about the new record, which they say “feels like an organic extension of Monolith of Phobos, blending the wildly surreal and psychedelic with satirical social commentary.” Additionally, RS calls new track “Blood and Rockets”, “a sprawling epic that finds Lennon and Claypool crooning and snarling, respectively, over spacey synths and chiming guitars.”

Grab your goggles and a month’s supply of Kool-Aid because The Claypool Lennon Delirium is about to take you for a ride on a rock ‘n’ roll rocket ship, and frankly you may never come back!

The Murlocs Share Video For New Single “Comfort Zone”

Australia’s The Murlocs, which features members of King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, announced their first headlining North America tour and released a new single “Comfort Zone” with an accompanying video today. The tour includes stops at Shaky Knees, LA’s Teragram Ballroom, NYC’s Bowery Ballroom and Lincoln Hall in Chicago (all tour dates below). Tickets for all dates are on-sale now and available HERE.

 

 

Apple’s Beats 1 premiered The Murlocs’ new track “Comfort Zone” yesterday, and vocalist Ambrose Kenny-Smith explains poetically of it, “‘Comfort Zone is about finding shelter from the storm. Whilst others are out making a change most of us want to stay the same. Any fool can throw a punch but hate and violence won’t solve much.You can run but you can’t hide amongst the comfort zone of your own mind.” The song’s accompanying video is a dark and haunting tale, the juxtaposition between the music and the story the video tells making it all the more intriguing.

 

Inspired by the ganzfeld experiments of the 1970s which claim to provide compelling evidence for the existence of psychic abilities, director John Stewart explores what happens when this goes horrifically wrong in the “Comfort Zone” video. As he explains, “It is no surprise that the human psyche (whether one is aware of it or not) is soaked in fear and fascination with violence. I used the idea of a ‘comfort zone’ as an area to explore these fantasies and fears as they escalate. The ganzfield experiments used pseudo psychology to attempt to access the deeper recesses of a person’s ‘locked door’ of consciousness. What if they were to unlock some dark, ancient bloodlust buried deep?”

 

“Comfort Zone” is the band’s first new music since their 2017 album Old Locomotive. It was recorded in mid-2018 at Melbourne’s Newmarket studios, produced by Stu Mackenzie (King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard) and mixed by NYC musician Jarvis Taveniere (Real Estate, Woods, Parquet Courts).

 

Formed in late 2010 by harp player Ambrose Kenny-Smith, the five members of The Merlocs play their own blown-out, distorted brand of soulful RnB. They have already played numerous Australian music festivals as well as supporting acts such as Gary Clarke Jr., Mac Demarco, Ty Segall, Thee Oh Sees, The Pixies, Stephen Malkmus and The Jicks, Wavves and King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard. Their up-tempo snare cracks and noisy guitars, accompanied by Ambrose’s warm vocals have been described as a mesmerizing, demented dance party.

 

 

The Murlocs will be playing as follows:

4/09 – Los Angeles, CA @ Teragram Ballroom

4/10 – San Francisco, CA @ The Chapel

4/12 – Portland, OR @ Mississippi Studios

4/13 – Vancouver, BC @ The Fox Cabaret

Emily King’s New Album Scenery is Now Streaming on NPR First Listen

“Scenery is a precise-yet-fluid blend of ’80s pop and rock, contemporary R&B”

Emily King’s forthcoming album Scenery, out Feb 1 on ATO Records, is now streaming in full on NPR’s First Listen. Hear it now HERE.

Taken from her highly anticipated new album, Scenery (Feb 1, ATO Records), Emily says of the track, “I got tired of waiting around for someone else to please me. It became a song about self reliance. Realizing I didn’t need anyone else to make me feel good in any way, I only needed to trust myself.”

Scenery, produced by long time musical cohort Jeremy Most and mixed Tom Elmhirst (Adele, Amy Winehouse, David Bowie) was recorded in upstate New York, nestled in the Catskill Mountains, where Emily now makes her home after a lifetime of Lower East Side living. “Can’t Hold Me” is the latest single off of Scenery — coming after “Remind Me” and “Look at Me Now.”

Scenery follows the critically acclaimed album The Switch (2015) which included the hit “Distance” (more than 13 million streams). Following the album’s release, King performed on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, Conan, Prairie Home Companion, and toured with Alabama Shakes. This is her first release with ATO Records.

A proud New Yorker, Emily spent her first three decades living on the same Downtown block. She loved her home, her family, her friends, and her life there. But last year, when she finally resolved to challenge herself by moving out of her comfort zone, positive changes started taking shape immediately. In Upstate New York, the fresh air and fresh mentality gave her the proper space and perspective to create what would become the album of her career. Its name: Scenery.

Natalie Prass Covers “Wild Horses,” On Tour with Kacey Musgraves

Natalie Prass released an Amazon Original cover of Prefab Sprout’s “Wild Horses.” Listen to “Wild Horses” today only available to stream and purchase on Amazon Music, and watch a live performance video of the song that was captured at Chop Suey in Seattle, WA.

 

Listen to “Wild Horses” only on Amazon Music

 

Last year, Prass released her critically-acclaimed sophomore album The Future and the Past on ATO Records. NPR Music said, “With interplay between old sounds and new technologies, a blurring of the personal and the political, and, of course, a stylistic evolution from Prass herself, this new album neither absolves us of the past it decries or lays a blueprint for the future it hopes for. But it does make the here and now sound a whole lot groovier,” while Consequence of Sound said, “Faced with the unexpected, Prass evolved, trading inward-facing confessionalism for outward-facing perseverance and releasing one of 2018’s minor masterpieces in the process.”

Prass is now currently on tour with Kacey Musgraves. Find a full list of tour dates below.

Amazon Music listeners can simply ask, “Alexa play the latest song by Natalie Prass” in the Amazon Music app for iOS and Android and on Alexa-enabled devices. In addition to the new track, Amazon Music listeners can access hundreds of Amazon Originals featuring both emerging and established artists across numerous genres, available to stream and purchase only on Amazon Music.
