Allen Stone Announces New Album ‘Building Balance’

 

Soulful vanguard Allen Stone‘s forthcoming record Building Balance will be released November 8th, taking his soul-stirring R&B and funk to the next artistic level. Allen continues to draw inspiration from ’70s funk and soul with current flexes, sitting amid D’Angelo in its sultrier moments, and Stevie Wonder at its most melodic. Also partially inspired by becoming a husband and father, the album features the most personal, lushly produced and gorgeously performed songs of Allen’s career.

Watch Music Video for “Sunny Days” Below

 

Building Balance was largely written in a cabin in the woods of Washington state and partially recorded at Sound Emporium Studios in Nashville with three producers: the acclaimed British artist/producer Jaime Lidell, Grammy-winning producer Nasri, and Jeremy Most (Emily King). The album is a textured amalgam of R&B and soul, a result of several personal co-writing sessions, collaborations with Emily King, Mike Posner & Theo Katzman / Joey Dosik of Vulfpeck, and lyrics by Allen. Equal parts sentimental (“Brown Eyed Lover”, “Consider Me”) and replete with nostalgic funk (“Back to the Swing”, “Sweaters”), Allen’s third album shows an artist who has grown into his own and learned to balance and appreciate all parts of his life: the vices of the past and the gifts of the present, career and family, the brilliant highs and discouraging lows.

 

“The balance through the turmoil of strife and struggle is the best balance you can build because you’re growing, you’re strengthening, you’re utilizing muscles,” he says of the album. “If it was a cake walk then you’re not gonna fortify those tendons or that willpower.”

 

He’s also released new single “Sunny Days” accompanied by music video seen above. The song is an R&B ode to euphoric love that features slick rap verses alongside Allen’s smooth delivery in his stunningly transformative upper range. Of “Sunny Days”, Allen says the track “is a feel good, throwback song about being confident in the love you have for another. Like a refreshing breeze on a hot summer day the melody cools and comforts. There is no feeling more beautiful than trusting in love.”

 

Allen Stone will hit the road on October 23rd for a live 15-date karaoke tour of intimate rooms. He will perform songs from his catalog and classic karaoke staples with his fans, upfront and literally face-to-face. Watch this hilarious and heartwarming trailer for the tour here.

Temples’ to Release Third LP ‘Hot Motion’ on Sept 27. US Tour Begins on 10/12 at Desert Daze

Beloved British psych-rockers Temples return with their new album Hot Motion on September 27th.  With their third brilliantly crafted and ingeniously intricate album, Temples have found new ground and a deeper, darker creative well.  A glorious technicolor infuses much of the album but there is a David Lynch-ian undertone that adds a gravity to Hot Motion’s soaring moments. “It felt like there was a darker edge to what we were coming up with and we wanted to make sure that carried through the whole record,” said bassist Thomas Walmsley. “It’s not a ten track, relentless rock record from start to finish, it’s got a lot of light and shade and more tender moments, but that heavier, darker sound is something we wanted to explore further.”

Pre-Order on Deluxe Galaxy Zoetrope Vinyl

Fizzing with ideas, bursting with kinetic energy and balancing an immediate impact with an enduring, timeless intensity, Hot Motion is a cohesive album in a time of stand-alone singles. Temples have created an aural tapestry for dark days, an inviting and warm sanctuary away from the daily churn of information overload. It’s an album of complexity, crafted for repeat listening.

Joseph Release New Album ‘Good Luck, Kid’ Today

 “A Rallying Cry and a Celebration” – NYLON

 

“[they] 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

 

“writing love songs and lullabies for our place in modern history” – BILLBOARD

 

“Upbeat, anthemic” – BROOKLYN VEGAN

 

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

 

“it’s the biggest, boldest, most realized thing Joseph… have ever released” – PASTE

 

 

Today, Portland-bred sister trio Joseph release their new album ‘Good Luck, Kid’. 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 into songs that careen, sprawl and often soar, as it spins a narrative of life-changing transformation.
 
Listen/ share ‘Good Luck, Kid’ here: http://smarturl.it/goodluckkid
 
Joseph’s live video of “Green Eyes” is also out today. Backed by a full band, the epic and uplifting reflection on love and the open road is bolstered by Joseph’s intensely dynamic sound as each sister’s voice falls perfectly into harmony.
 
Watch/share the video below

 
Joseph and their full band are set to headline their biggest rooms yet on tour this fall; full routing below. Joseph also will perform a special intimate showcase at WNYC’s Greene Space on October 1st. The evening will feature author Laura Lippman discussing her new book ‘Lady in the Lake’ followed by a performance by the trio.
 
In the making of ‘Good Luck, Kid,’ Joseph deliberately strayed from the dreamy folk of their 2016 debut ‘I’m Alone, No You’re Not,’ giving way to a far grittier and more dynamic sound. Produced by Christian “Leggy” Langdon (Meg Myers, Charlotte OC), the result is a nuanced breed of pop and rock built on thick drums and lustrous guitars, heavy grooves, and radiant melodies. Despite that 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.

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”:

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.

dawes north hills 10th anniversary deluxe edition

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.
