Posted in: What's New | No Comments

SASS JORDAN – REBEL MOON...

Sass Jordan is one of the premiere female rock singers in history, selling over one million albums worldwide. While she has touched upon Blues over her 40-year career, this is the first time she has focused exclusively on creating an album of songs in this tradition, that showcase her talent as a Blues singer. As Jordan acknowledges: “The blues has always been a huge part of my life. It’s a big part of what I grew up with. It’s been there through my entire career.” Her first blues album arrives in raw, earthy style on the magnificent Rebel Moon Blues, to be released on Friday, March 13 on Stony Plain Records. Co-produced with D#, it’s the Juno Award-winner’s ninth studio album and first release in nearly a decade. More crucially, it’s also a watershed that charts a new course in Jordan’s musical voyage while tracing her love of the blues back to its source. The album features eight songs, freshly interpreted and given ...

THE MAHONES – UNPLUGGED

The Mahones have come a long way in 30 years (1990-2020) : heralded as pioneers of the Irish punk scene, and internationally recognised as one of the best and hardest working punk outfits around. The new project is an acoustic unplugged album that presents their best loved songs and performances in a raw and intimate performance. The album includes the acoustic recording of the standout track from last year’s Love+Death+Redemption: “Never Let Me Down” featuring vocals by Sarah Harmer as a bonus track with a new video. Another highlight is Simon Townshend of The Who providing acoustic guitar and harmony vocals on “Stars.” Other key tracks are a cover of Trent Reznor’s “Hurt” and the haunting vocals of Damhnait Doyle on the new acoustic version of “A Little Bit of Love.”

RORY GALLAGHER – CHECK...

Featuring fantastic live versions of tracks from that album as well as songs from the 1975 ‘Against The Grain’ album and other career favourites. This new album has been mastered at Abbey Road.

ROSE COUSINS – BRAVADO

Rose Cousins has announced she will release a new album titled Bravado on February 21 via Outside Music. For a taste, album opener "The Benefits of Being Alone" has also arrived with an accompanying music video. The record marks the follow-up to 2017's Natural Conclusion and was produced by Cousins herself. Recorded in Toronto, the album features a supporting cast including Joshua Van Tassel on drums, Robbie Grunwald on keys, Brian Kobayakawa on bass, Dean Drouillard on electric guitars and Chris Stringer as engineer. Tim Baker also co-wrote one of the songs on the album, "The Lullaby (My Oldest Love)." The album opens with "The Benefits of Being Alone" and closes with a different rendition of the same song, dubbed "The Reprise."

GORD SINCLAIR – TAXI DANCERS

Posted in: What's New | No Comments

GORD SINCLAIR – TAXI...

The solo debut from the musician best known as bassist and songwriter with Canadian rock legends The Tragically Hip brings several firsts. Chiefly, it’s the first release from a member of the band since the passing of frontman Gord Downie in 2017, an event that united the nation. Taxi Dancers is a farewell of sorts, fearlessly exploring Sinclair’s despair about losing a lifelong friend and bandmate. But it is also a clear‐eyed survey of what’s good in the world, and a profound statement about why sorrow must be viewed in tandem with joy. Both are elemental aspects of living, and music — especially rock music, with its boundless capacity for nuance, shading, and sheer emotional heft — is perhaps life’s purest mirror. Taxi Dancers fluently moves between candlelit ballads and buoyant pop numbers to flat‐out rock scorchers and what can only be termed as a spaghetti Western‐style corker (“Take Me to the Moon” which is propelled ...
