Coming Soon… New TINDERSTICKS Album ‘DISTRACTIONS’

22 January 2021

Band: TINDERSTICKS (Nottingham, K)
Active: Since 1992

Album: DISTRACTIONS – 13th LP
Out: 11 February
Info: Tindersticks sounds fresh again. ‘Distractions’ is an album of subtle realignments
and connections from a restless, intuitive band. Rich in texture and atmosphere, it lives between its open spaces and details, always finding new ways to connect with a song.
The LP isn’t untouched by the lockdown, but it’s not a lockdown record.

Stuart A. Staples (frontman): “I think the confinement provided an opportunity
for something that was already happening. It is definitely a part of the album, but
not a reaction to it.”

– MAN ALONE (CAN’T STOP THE FADIN’) –
Trippy & spacey, brill bass, pretty surprising!!

– YOU’LL HAVE TO SCREAM LOUDER –
Funky score! You can dance to Tindersticks now!!

Coming Soon… WEEZER With ‘OK HUMAN’ Album

19 January 2021

WEEZER has two albums ready to go public. VAN WEEZER and OK HUMAN. Some time ago the band announced Van Weezer would leave the studio first. But yesterday we got
the news that they changed their minds. OK Human will be out next week, 29th January, and Van Weezer on 7th May.

This leaves us with the 3 singles they already dropped from the Van Weezer LP and none from OK Human. Are you still there, do you still follow? Let’s have the 3 Van Weezers right here to warm up while waiting for both album releases…

Coming Soon… MELVINS Working With GOD

13 January 2021

Most musicians love to work and collaborate with other artists in order to get inspired,
or to benefit from the famous status of the other one(s), or to just jam around for fun. It happens all the time. But as far as I can remember nobody worked with the Almighty so far, which what proto-punk veterans MELVINS will exactly do on their new 24th (!) album, coming your way on 26th February.

While you wait, check lead-single Caddy Daddy, dropped
on the first day of this new year. Wow! God sounds just
like Black Sabbath

A Belgian KING GIZZARD AND THE LIZARD WIZARD Live Bootleg

11 January 2021

The 24/7 working Aussie prog-psych-rock junks KING GIZZARD
AND THE LIZARD WIZARD
started releasing albums last year
to be bootlegged!

The band introduced the ultra rare project with this message: “Yo indie labels,
bootleggers, fans, weirdos. We’ve got a deal for ya. If anyone wants to release these
albums, you’re free to do so. Only deal is you’ve gotta send us some of them to sell on Gizzverse.com Ideas: double LPs, 7”, remix, reimagined cover art, bizarre-looking wax,
live show box sets, tapes. Or keep it simple, that’s totally ok. Anyone keen?”

Belgian record label Exag Records got to action and will release a double live LP
of 17 KGATLW tracks recorded at Brussels’ legendary venue Ancienne Belgique
from their two gigs, played there on 8 and 9 October 2019.

Only 300 copies are available. More details and pre-order facilities right here.
All benefits will go to the label’s artists. Shipping expected to arrive at the end
of March – early April 2021.

The brilliant art-work is by Belgian artist David Crunelle.

The LP contains two white and red marbled Eco-Vinyls, the official colours of
the Ancienne Belgique venue. Furthermore, they are manufactured in Holland
using only eco-responsible methods.

Black BOWIE Music Matters – Coming Soon… Tribute Album ‘MODERN LOVE’

11 January 2021

Album: MODERN LOVE – David Bowie tribute LP
Label: Barely Breaking Even (UK)
Out: 28 May 2021

Label executive (and DJ) Drew McFadden about the project: “I felt that the connection between Bowie and R&B, jazz, funk, gospel and all things soulful, had never really been
explored before — at least not so much in covers, which tend to lean more towards rock and pop. Certainly, there’s been plenty of Bowie covers over the years, but none that have really tapped into what seems to have been a big part of his core musical style and direction.”

Artists: Khruangbin, Helado Negro, Jeff Parker, L’Rain, Bullion,
Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, Meshell Ndegeocello
, and more.

First taster is by famous, female Minneapolis
twin sister R & B duo We Are KING (formerly King).
They picked Bowie‘s massive hit Space Oddity to cover.

Their version is floating in a the-stars-are-out-tonight
galaxy. Like a starry-eyed dream in motion. A beauty…
