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 ...

THE DECEMBERISTS – TRAVELING ON

THE DECEMBERISTS –...

Led by Montana native Colin Meloy, the Decemberists craft theatrical, hyper‐literate pop songs that draw heavily from late‐'60s British folk acts like Fairport Convention and Pentangle and the early‐'80s college rock grandeur of the Waterboys and R.E.M. The band's initial lineup also included drummer Ezra Holbrook, bassist Nate Query, keyboardist/accordionist Jenny Conlee, and multi‐instrumentalist Chris Funk. Frontman Meloy had previously devoted some time to an alternative country group before breaking off to pursue his craft as a singer/songwriter in the city of Portland, a move that eventually led to the Decemberists' formation. Drawing influence from his degree in creative writing, he began fashioning a hybrid of literate lyrics and wide‐ranging pop music, touching upon everything from Sandy Denny to Morrissey in the process. Before Hush Records released the band's debut album in 2002, the Decemberists baited their initial fans with a five‐track EP. Their full‐length debut, Castaways and Cutouts, was re‐released that same year on the Kill Rock ...
