Posted in: What's New | No Comments

WITHIN TEMPTATION –...

Goth metal stars Within Temptation marry the guitar‐driven force of hard rock with the sweep and grandeur of symphonic music, and the results have made them one of the most popular bands ever in the Netherlands. Within Temptation were formed in 1996 by guitarist Robert Westerholt and vocalist Sharon den Adel, who are partners on stage and off. Within Temptation's early material caught the attention of the Dutch label DSFA, which signed the group to a record deal; the band's first album, Enter, was released in 1997. Up until this time, Within Temptation had been a studio project, but the success of the album led to invitations to play several live shows, including the Dynamo Music Festival, one of the biggest live music events in the Netherlands. Within Temptation demonstrated their strength as a concert act, and began playing Germany, Austria, Belgium, and the Czech Republic. Booked to play Dynamo's main stage in 1998, Within Temptation felt ...

LEE HARVEY OSMOND –...

Over the course of discovering my true identity, the intention of my writing, my music and my art is to reduce the gap between my indigenous culture and colonialists to make a more patient, loving community.” – Tom Wilson aka Lee Harvey Osmond When Tom Wilson created the moniker Lee Harvey Osmond he wasn’t entirely certain if this was a new stage name or merely a provocative handle for the musician/artist collective assembled by producer Michael Timmins to record a collection of Tom Wilson songs that would become “A Quiet Evil”. This was the first of four albums bearing the featured artist Lee Harvey Osmond. “The Folk Sinner” was next, followed by the break through “Beautiful Scars”. It was during this time between releasing “Beautiful Scars” and recording “Kings and Kings” with Blackie and The Rodeo Kings that Wilson went public with his recent discovery. He was not exactly the ...

WHITEHORSE – THE NORTHERN SOUL VOLUME 2

WHITEHORSE – THE...

Whitehorse shuffles the deck with The Northern South Vol. 2. Second installment of JUNO Award‐nominated project deals 1950s blues bops, hellfire gospels and sexed‐up cuts. Itches, urges, dirges and scourges: welcome back to The Northern South. Whitehorse makes their return to the early days of electric blues with the second installment of a project that melds original grooves and melodies with the duo's steamy, swampy, squalling approach. There's foreplay, foreboding, fever and Fenders, plenty of them, from top to bottom, with cuts from Howlin' Wolf, Willie Dixon, Jimmy Reed and Slim Harpo and more. "Blues gave rock n roll its nerve. It breaks, bends and distorts rules. This sense of abandon, emotional and musical urgency trickled into all forms of modern day music," offers Melissa McClelland, one‐half of the duo. "There would be no Cardi B without Lucille Hogan. There would be no Tom Waits without Howlin' Wolf and there would be no Stones without any of it." Opener "Who's ...

CLOVES – ONE BIG NOTHING

Posted in: What's New | No Comments

CLOVES – ONE BIG NOTHING

One Big Nothing is CLOVES' long-awaited debut album, released on January 18, 2019 via Island Records. Inspired by her decision to leave school at 16 to write music in London, the album is an honest, revealing collection of songs about her run-ins with life, love and self-doubt. Of her time in London, CLOVES says she “spent such a long period of time writing that I kind of melted into the city, and it brought a moodiness to the album that I really like.” One of the album’s highlights, “Bringing the House Down”, is a storming mid-tempo reflecting on a relationship being torn apart at the seams, while songs such as “Wasted Time” and “Up and Down” see CLOVES sing frankly about her own insecurities. The 10-track collection was largely produced by Ian Barter and CLOVES, with additional input from Ariel Rechtshaid, Ed Swinburne, Justin Parker, Ian Barter and Starsmith.

EMINEM – KAMIKAZE

If all the greatest artists of the moment release surprise albums, why not Eminem? After "Revival" which has divided despite some hits like "Walk On Water" with Beyoncé and "River" with Ed Sheeran, Eminem surprises his world with "Kamikaze", a new project of 13 tracks. As the name of the album suggests, Marshall Mathers does not expect to spare anyone. If Dr. Dre wears the executive producer cap as always, "Kamikaze" sees Eminem collaborating with star producers Mike Will Made It (Kendrick Lamar, Future, Beyoncé, Jay Z), Boi-1Da (Drake, Nicki Minaj, Lana Del Rey), Tay Keith (Drake, Blocboy JB, Key Glock) or Ronny J (XXXtentacion, Lil Pump, Denzel Curry). At the microphone, Eminem returns more upset than ever and we find with pleasure the technical prowess and the piques assassins of the one often considered by fans as the best rapper in the world. As guests, nothing surprising: his friend always Royce Da ...
