King Gizzard’s New Album “Infest The Rats’ Nest” Out Now!

The planet is in trouble. Dire trouble. But fear not: Melbourne seven-piece King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard return to save us all, this time armed only with blast beats, an arsenal of well-oiled guitars that are locked and loaded, and a desire to melt faces clean off.

 

Their fifteenth studio album, Infest The Rats’ Nest, is by far The Gizz’s hardest and heaviest album to date. How metal is it? Very Metal. Maybe even more.

OFFICIAL STORE

 

Released just six months after the uplifting blues-rock boogie and deep electro explorations of Fishing For Fishes and drawing on the mid/late 1980s golden period of thrash metal – Metallica and Slayer, certainly, but also lesser-cited bands such as Exodus, Kreator and Overkill – Infest The Rats’ Nest sees a wholly unexpected creative detour into new sonic terrain.

 

“In year 4 there was an older kid who was into Rammstein,” explains Stu of his early discover discovery of metal’s extremities. “I made friends with him and we put together a performance at our school assembly where we headbanged to ‘Du Hast’. I got whiplash, which I thought was pretty cool. That was my introduction to heavy metal, and soon Rammstein led to Metallica, Metallica led to Slayer, Slayer led to Kreator and Sodom. The German bands really kicked my ass and scared the hell out of me too. Later on, when I picked up a guitar I realized that shit was too hard to play, so I got into rock ‘n’ roll and garage. That was liberating.”  Infest The Rats’ Nest is the sound of King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard scratching the thrash metal itch, fully and unequivocally.

Brittany Howard Shares New Song and Video, “He Loves Me”

 
Brittany Howard released “He Loves Me,” a song from her forthcoming debut solo album, Jaime. The soulful, slow-burning track – which debuted earlier today as Zane Lowe’s World Record on Apple Music’s Beats 1 – offers up a frank reflection on the unconditional nature of God’s love. While confessing she’s not a churchgoer, Howard punctuates the song with samples from a sermon by Reverend Terry K. Anderson, a Houston-based pastor she discovered on YouTube. The video was directed by Danny Clinch and shot at Sound Emporium in Nashville.

 

View Howard’s live performance of  “He Loves Me” Below

 

“‘He Loves Me’ is a very important track on my record. It is a song I deeply want to share to help others realize loving and being loved by God doesn’t have to look the same for everyone,” says Brittany Howard. “When my older sister passed away, it took its toll on our family. We grew apart from one another and therefore, we grew apart from our family church. I thought God had intended to hurt us or punish us, but I later realized that I found God in music and I found God in my voice. I learned that He always had a plan for myself and my family. That is what ‘He Loves Me’ is about. It is my greatest realization that He has never left me. All those years that I had turned away, I was still receiving His absolute love and forgiveness.”
 
  Rolling Stone said, “Howard’s solo debut, Jaime, is her most ambitious recording ever, full of synthed-out psychedelic funk, druggy soul ballads, hip-hop loops, and lyrics grappling with her past, including sexuality, family tragedy, religious guilt and more…It’s a powerful record.”

Joseph Release “Good Luck, Kid” Title Track And New Lyric Video

“[The] blend their voices in the eerily close way that only siblings seem able to accomplish” NPR MUSIC

 

“a rallying cry and a celebration of the determination and angst that has pulled us all through these toxic times” — NYLON

 

“Upbeat, anthemic” — BROOKLYN VEGAN

“Dark folk-pop that will make you cry (in the best, most cathartic way possible)” PAPER

 

“an uplifting stronghold” — PASTE

 

Joseph continue to prove they are “back after a three-year absence and fired up for the occasion” (NYLON) with the release of the title track and lyric video from their forthcoming album ‘Good Luck, Kid,’ out September 13.  The trio—Natalie Schepman and her twin sisters Allison and Meegan Closner— will also embark on a 30+ date tour this fall, starting on the eve of the new album’s release and headlining their biggest rooms to date.

 

Watch “Good Luck, Kid (Official Lyric Video)” Below

 

The guitar-heavy upbeat track speaks to the eternal quest for independence as the sisters sing of the eternal road to self-discovery. “They handed you the keys / The driver’s seat is yours now,” the sisters sing over reverberating guitar and intense drums. The song is the only track on the new album solely credited to Schepman, and was inspired by a road trip with her husband Chris, and their long conversations about independence, religion, and the ubiquity of social media.

 

The girls invite you to come along for a ride in their latest lyric video, featuring an eclectic montage of personal vignettes that mirror the song’s theme: taking the driver’s seat into adulthood.

 

Watch via Consequence of Sound, who praise the song’s “dizzying guitars” and “driving bass line”:

https://consequenceofsound.net/2019/08/joseph-good-luck-kid-origins-stream/

 

Joseph has garnered attention for their lush, goosebump-inducing harmonies and songs of unity and empowerment. Since its release, ‘Good Luck, Kid’ lead single “Fighter” cracked the Top 20 in the Triple AAA Radio Chart in just three weeks, an overall rare and impressive feat. Additionally, the sisters recently kicked off an Instagram campaign tied to “Fighter” that shares the extraordinary stories of women across the world under the #THISISAFIGHTER hashtag.

Announcing Dawes “North Hills: 10th Anniversary Edition” Deluxe LP

Today we’re extremely excited to announce Dawes – North Hills: 10th Anniversary Edition, a deluxe vinyl reissue commemorating a decade since the release of their breakthrough debut album, available on September 6th. Upon its release in 2009, the Jonathan Wilson produced album was hailed by Rolling Stone for its “twangy folk rock a la Gram Parsons and Neil Young” and “sweet, Byrds-ian harmonies.” Said bassist Wylie Gelber, “this album is dedicated to my first car, she gave her life for a modest insurance payout, which funded the recording of these songs.”

North Hills: 10th Anniversary Edition is available for pre-order here.

The 10th anniversary edition of North Hills will include two LPs on translucent red vinyl, a gatefold jacket with gold foil stamped cover, and a 7” vinyl with two unreleased b-sides, “All My Failures” and “Wilderness.” “We figured at the time that Wilderness and All My Failures didn’t fit with the rest of the tunes,” Taylor Goldsmith reveals, “but now it’s hard to remember why we thought that. Listening back now, these recordings of these songs seem to share the same North Hills DNA as the original 11 and it feels good to get them out into the world.” Also included will be the album’s original 2009 promo poster, newly expanded artwork, and a digital download.  A portion of proceeds will go to Silverlake Conservatory of Music, facilitating dynamic music education across communities and providing scholarships to children whose families would otherwise be unable to afford lessons.

 

Dawes will also perform the album in full at this weekend’s Newport Folk Festival on Saturday July 27th at 5:30pm on the Quad Stage. “North Hills: Dawes and Friends, the 10 Year Celebration,” will feature an incredible group of unannounced special guests sitting in with the band and can be streamed live on Newport Folk Radio here.

Black Pumas Premiere “Colors” Live Video

Today, Black Pumas have premiered a new performance video of “Colors” via The Fader— a track that Hypebeast called “an idiosyncratically modern update of the height of the Motown era”.

Watch the video below

Black Pumas’ “acutely cinematic” (Pitchfork), “perfectly realized” (The Guardian) self-titled debut is out now, and the band continues to prove that they are “the breakout band of 2019” (NPR). They are selling out tour dates across the country, including upcoming dates in NYC, LA, and more.

Their peers are taking notice, too: Spoon’s Britt Daniel shouted them out in a recent interview with the Austin Chronicle:

AC: You’ve had the opportunity to help out a few Austin bands – are there any newer acts that you’re excited about?

BD: I just started listening to that Black Pumas record because I love the record cover and I was seeing it everywhere. That’s a great band.

From winning Best New Band and Best Song (“Black Moon Rising”) at the 2019 Austin Music Awards and attracting praise from Rolling Stone for their “tireless, charismatic” performances at SXSW to sold-out dates with The Heavy throughout Europe, the partnership between busker-turned frontman Eric Burton and Grammy-winning guitarist Adrian Quesada is becoming impossible to ignore.

Black Pumas is currently the #1 most played album at KCRW, ahead of Thom Yorke and Khruangbin. Listen to “Black Moon Rising” below.

Brittany Howard Shares New Single & Video, “Stay High”

 

Today, Brittany Howard unveiled “Stay High,” the soulful first single from her debut solo album, Jaime, and the accompanying video, which follows a father in the moments after his shift at a factory. Envisioning Terry Crews – who portrayed beloved TV dad Julius in “Everybody Hates Chris” and has gone on to star in such projects as The Expendables (and its sequels), Deadpool 2, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and “America’s Got Talent” – in the lead role, Howard wrote him a letter to ask if he would consider starring in the video, and he graciously accepted her offer.

 

She teamed up with director Kim Gehrig to shoot “Stay High.” Gehrig’s music videos for Wiley & Mark Ronson’s “Cash in my Pocket” and Chaka Khan’s “Like Sugar” won top honors at the UK VMAs. Her numerous awards include the first Glass Lion as well as multiple Gold Lions at Cannes. Howard dedicated the “Stay High” video to her father, K.J. Howard, who makes a cameo appearance. Marking her first-ever appearance in a music video, Brittany can also be spotted in the clip.

 

Watch “Stay High” below

 

Pre-Order Brittany Howard’s Debut Album Jaime Here Out September 20

 

“This video is shot in my home town of Athens, Alabama. The actors are my family and friends,” says Brittany Howard. “Terry Crews plays a man who isn’t out to change the world, he plays a man who just wants to come home to those who understand and love him best. We see his inner beauty, grace and humanity in a place that is so often misunderstood.”

 

“I got an email from the Brittany Howard, asking me to be a part of a song she wrote that was all about her dad and how special he was to the family. And she poured her heart out in this letter. I couldn’t believe it,” Terry Crews recalls. “Brittany was like, ‘we can shoot it in L.A.,’ and I said, ‘No, I’m coming to you, we’re going to Alabama. We’re going to where you grew up, to where your family is.”

 

Rolling Stone said, “Howard’s solo debut, Jaime, is her most ambitious recording ever, full of synthed-out psychedelic funk, druggy soul ballads, hip-hop loops, and lyrics grappling with her past, including sexuality, family tragedy, religious guilt and more…It’s a powerful record.”

 

“It’s my first time making decisions on my own, being the captain of the ship,” she says. “It brings up existential questions—why am I here, why do I do this? People think that touring in a band is super-fun, and it can be, but nothing about it is normal. You miss out on a lot of stuff, so I need to make sure I’m doing it for the right reasons.”

 

Tickets are on sale now for Howard’s fall North American tour, which includes two-night stands at intimate venues in Asheville, NC, Washington, DC and Los Angeles. The headline run will also include shows at Ryman Auditorium in Nashville (August 19) and New York City’s Beacon Theatre (September 24). See below for full itinerary or visit www.brittanyhoward.com.

Today Rayland Baxter Releases Mac Miller Tribute EP ‘good mmornin’

“Baxter leans into the jazzy, smoldering groove of Miller’s music… accentuating the optimism percolating below the surface” – Rolling Stone

 

“It might seem unexpected on paper, but the covers sound pretty great.” – Brooklyn Vegan

 

Baxter draws out the fusion of hip-hop, jazz, and R&B that underlies Miller’s songs… The sounds illuminate Miller’s influence on Baxter’s original songs” American Songwriter

 

Baxter’s tribute comes from a place of real respect, and sadness at a promising young talent gone far too soon. Baxter’s folk and Americana background melding with Miller’s work that itself drew from jazz and soul makes perfect sense” – Cover Me

 

 

Today Rayland Baxter has released his Mac Miller tribute EP good mmornin digitally including tracks “2009” and “Objects In The Mirror”.

 

For the 7 song EP, Ray brought some of his closest musician friends into the studio, including keyboardist/guitarist Aaron Embry(Elliott Smith, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros), drummerEric Slick (Dr. Dog), and his father Bucky Baxter (Bob Dylan, Steve Earle, R.E.M.) on pedal steel. The result is a touching tribute to Mac’s artistry and legacy, showing how his music transcends genre and scene to build connections in unlikely places, inviting listeners to recognize and build deep, human connections.

 

Download Digital Album Here // Pre-Order Limited Edition Yellow Vinyl Here

 

Listen to “2009” Below

 

Rayland saw Mac perform at a festival years ago and fell in love with his songs. As time passed, Baxter became more enchanted by Miller; by his lyrics, his musicality and most of all, his approach to and through life. Miller’s uncanny knack for exploring deeply universal human themes, turning the mundane realities of everyday life into profoundly honest observations resonated with Baxter, as it did a global audience also struggling with common issues of love, depression, addiction and optimism.

 

Ray is planning to donate a portion of the proceeds of this project to Musicares’ Mac Miller Legacy Fund which is centered on youth with substance abuse issues.

 

Rayland will be touring North America and European festivals extensively this summer and fall. Upcoming highlights include Newport Folk Festival, Xponential, Hardly Strictly (SF), Pilgrimageand Red Rocks.

Joseph Announce New Album ‘Good Luck, Kid’ Set For September 13 Release and Debut Single “Fighter”

 

“[They] blend their voices in the eerily close way that only siblings seem able to accomplish” – NPR Music 

 

“Dark folk-pop that will make you cry (in the best, most cathartic way possible)” – PAPER

 

“Wonderfully eccentric sounds, visually sumptuous and ethereally evocative” – Paste

 

“Poised to make a splash” – Buzzfeed

 

Today, Portland-bred sister trio Joseph announce their new album Good Luck, Kid, set for September 13th release. Following 2016’s I’m Alone, No You’re Not, which was hailed as “an appealing mix of swoony delicacy and punchy anthems” by NPR Music, the new album is a road movie in album form, an odyssey at turns emotional, existential, and entirely literal. With their intimate storytelling and restless intensity, Natalie Schepman and her sisters Allison and Meegan Closner detail that journey in songs that careen and sprawl and often soar, ultimately spinning a narrative of life-changing transformation.
 

The exhilarating first single “Fighter” is out today. An intense, compact cut with serious emotional punch, “Fighter” immediately proves the transcendent power of sisterly connection, while also speaking to a nearly disastrous discord.
 

“The song’s about how our band almost broke up,” explains Natalie. “It’s the story of the three of us wanting different things and dealing with that conflict, and eventually deciding to just keep going.”
 

Listen/share here: https://nylon.com/joseph-fighter-premiere

 

In the making of Good Luck, Kid Joseph pushed beyond the dreamy folk of their debut album, embracing a grittier, more dynamic sound. The 13-song collection was produced by Christian “Leggy” Langdon (Meg Myers, Charlotte OC) and the result brims with thick drums and lustrous guitars, heavy grooves and radiant melodies. Despite the bolder sonic palette, Good Luck, Kid remains centered on the band’s crystalline vocal work, including the otherworldly harmonies that suggest a near-telepathic connection among sisters.

 

“The through-line of the album is this idea of moving into the driver’s seat of your own life—recognizing that you’re an adult now, and everything’s up to you from this moment on,” Natalie said. “You’re not completely sure of how to get where you need to go, and you don’t have any kind of a map to help you. It’s just the universe looking down on you like, ‘Good luck, kid.’”

 

Joseph will head out on a 20+ date tour this Fall, starting on the eve of the new album’s release and headlining their biggest rooms to date. See below for a full list of dates.
