VINCE GILL – OKIE

VINCE GILL – OKIE

Vince Gill paid nearly a decade‐and‐a‐half of dues en route to becoming one of the most popular country stars of the '90s. Starting out as a bluegrass singer and multi‐instrumentalist, he initially made his name with country‐rockers Pure Prairie League and spent the '80s as part of country's new traditionalist movement before finding massive success as a contemporary country hitmaker. Gill had strong mainstream appeal, yet enough songwriting chops and grounding in tradition that he could maintain his artistic credibility without being branded a crossover‐happy hack. That balance made him the kind of performer who awards ceremonies can feel good about honoring, and honor him they did: Gill has won more CMA Awards than any performer in history, and his 14 Grammys tie him with Chet Atkins for the most ever by a country artist. Vincent Grant Gill was born April 12, 1957, in Norman, Oklahoma. His father, a judge, played banjo and guitar, and ...

ZZ TOP – GOIN’ 50 ...

CELEBRATE ZZ TOP WITH THE ULTIMATE 50 YEAR COLLECTION This sturdy American blues-rock trio from Texas was formed in 1970 in and around Houston from rival bands. Their first two albums reflected the strong blues roots and Texas humor of the band. Their success continued unabated throughout the '70s, culminating with the year-and-a-half-long Worldwide Texas Tour. Packed with enough hits to fill a roadhouse jukebox, GOIN’ 50 spans the band’s entire musical career, from its 1969 debut, and its multi-platinum zenith during the Eighties, to its most-recent releases. This new retrospective includes an array from each of the 15 studio albums that guitarist Billy Gibbons, drummer Frank Beard and bassist Dusty Hill have recorded since 1970. Two bonus tracks, “Salt Lick” and “Miller’s Farm” – a single and b-side respectively – were recorded in 1969 by the original incarnation of ZZ Top.

KING GIZZARD – INFEST THE RATS NEST

KING GIZZARD – INFEST...

Their fifteenth studio album, Infest The Rats' Nest is by far King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard’s hardest and heaviest album to date. How metal is it? Very Metal. Maybe even more. 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. Because the stats on King Gizzard's colourful career are stacking up fast: 14 albums in 7 years (including 5 in 2017 alone), headline festival appearances, international critical acclaim ‐ they are now arguably the world's most innovative, important and productive rock band. And ‐ perhaps most importantly ‐ a fervent worldwide fanbase who share endless memes, mixes, videos, graphics, theories and discussions, all through which they explore and expand ...

CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL – LIVE AT WOODSTOCK

CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL &...

This album represents the first‐ever official release of Creedence Clearwater Revival’s legendary Woodstock performance, in its entirety. CCR were one of the few bands to appear at Woodstock, who had already achieved notable chart success. However, for many their appearance flew under the radar – largely in part to the band not appearing in the movie or the soundtrack which were released post‐festival. The hour‐long set took place shortly after midnight on 17 August 1969.

SLIPKNOT – WE ARE NOT...

Slipknot gear up for the release of their long-awaited sixth album, We Are Not Your Kind – coming August 9th on Roadrunner Records and produced by Slipknot and Greg Fidelman. The band has shared the album’s first single “Unsainted,” along with an official music video. Directed by the band’s own M. Shawn Crahan, the “Unsainted” video, and the track itself, offer a glimpse at the future of one of rock’s most popular, and deeply enigmatic bands. Guitarist Jim Root noted, “This is most time we’ve had to write a record, and work stuff out together. One of my inspirations this time around was those artists that recorded full length albums - not just songs. While the industry is moving toward singles, Slipknot wanted to make an album experience, front to back.” “These days the art we are making comes with the highest reward, because it’s taken the most time,” added Crahan. “Almost four ...

MABEL – HIGH...

Born in Spain and raised in London and Sweden, McVey showed a deep interest in music during early childhood and studied music production. Her parents didn't know that she was writing music until she was 16. Before she turned 20, she released her debut single, the independently released "Know Me Better" ‐‐ a moody, yearning piece of breakbeat soul. Signed to Polydor, she had her second single, "My Boy My Town," out by the end of 2015. Shortly after that, she was nominated in the BBC Sound of 2016 poll (won by Jack Garratt). In 2017, she delivered the mixtape Ivy to Roses, which included the platinum certified single "Finders Keepers," featuring Kojo Funds.
