‘Belinda’ by vintage-rockers Albino

London based vintage rock band Albino are hitting us with their new track ‘Belinda’, taken from their whiskey fuelled new album Night At The Chemist.

Yes that was whiskey! Albino’s main aim is to entertain with their rambunctious, often humorous ‘drinking’ music.

Their latest track ‘Belinda’ exudes this throwback, vintage feel that sounds like it could have come straight out of the 60’s.

Consisting of Ben Tucker (guitar/vocals), Merv ‘Fuzzy’ Salole (Bass), Gareth ‘gwEM’ Morris (guitar) and Don Gibson (percussion), Albino’s sole aim is to entertain with their rambunctious, often humorous ‘drinking’ music. As the main songwriter in the outfit, Ben is the driving inspirational force, tapping into a deep well of life experiences that draw on topics as diverse as love, deviancy, distrust of priests, historical events and of course, drinking.

Since they began in 2005, Albino has undergone a musical metamorphosis, travelling a long way from their humble beginnings, but now, the off-the-wall band has cemented their style and truly found their own sound. Whilst Albino’s eclectic and multi-talented musical line up has changed over the years, this latest track proves their musical direction, commitment and energy has always remained constant.

Adam Lanceley donates proceeds from new album to charity

London based singer songwriter, Adam Lanceley, is releasing his latest record, Back To The Sunshine, from which he is donating all sales to The Brain and Spine Foundation, a charity that is close to Adam’s heart.

During his childhood, Adam was involved in a serious car crash that left him with severe head injuries. His parents worried as Doctors told them Adam would never walk or talk again, but he managed to defy all the odds, recovering to such an extent that he now runs 10ks and has even completed the London Marathon for Brain and Spine.

Aside from running though, Adam turned to music to express a lot of the emotions he was feeling as he grew up and quickly found that he had an affinity for punchy, yet cryptic lyrics.

With 5 albums to his name already, ‘Back To The Sunshine’ picks up where Adam left off last time, continuing to develop his summery guitar led sound that is best exhibited on the new single, ‘A Film We All Saw.’ Lightly strummed chords transport listeners away to brighter days, something Adam tries to encapsulate in his ‘West Coast’ sound.

Whilst artists’ previous and personal experiences are often the bases of their songwriting, Adam has delved deep into his childhood to memorable locations like Devon and Yorkshire for many of the ideas on the new EP. Creating a mystical grandeur of time through these memories, there is a depth of field and subtext to Adam’s music beyond the instrumentation.

Jon McDevitt’s seasonal single ‘Father Christmas’

Okay – we’ve caved, we have had to do a Christmas post. But it’s definitely worth it for Jon McDevitt’s new Christmas jingle ‘Father Christmas’.

Exceptionally easy-listening – and backed with some brilliant rhythm guitar – this could be the next Christmas cracker. Check out McDevitt’s video here:

Adam Lanceley- ‘Those Rose Tinted Days’

London based singer-songwriter Adam Lanceley has returned with his fifth album, Postcards from Then, which features the summer-vibe fuelled track, ‘Those Rose Tinted Days’.

After being involved in a tragic car crash at the age of ten, Adam was given little hope of survival and was told he would at least never walk again. However, his determination has helped him overcome life’s obstacles and since then has focused his attention towards penning his feelings down through the cathartic medium of songwriting.

Along with his large back catalogue of five albums to his name, Adam has also ran the London marathon for the Brain and Spine Foundation with whom he raises money since his head injury.

Adam favours unusual instrumentation and a spur-of-the-moment song writing ethos that embraces deep emotions in the same way that the delivery of his songs does.

‘Those Rose Tinted Days’ is a powerful, reminiscent anthem driven by sun-drenched guitar riffs and backed up with Adam’s punchy vocal stylings that reflect his honest and considered approach towards music. When it comes to lyrical inspiration, Adam’s mantra ‘as long as it means something to you’ makes itself evident through contemplative topics and cryptic poetics.

I can feel your power from Ian Martyn

For lovers of Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and Fleetwood Mac  Ian Martyn’s expressive and greatly inspiring new single ‘I Can Feel Your Power’ epitomises the  support and comfort that art can bring to people especially at their darkest times in life. In Ian’s case it’s living with the earth shattering experience of losing both his wife and mother in the space of just 5 months.

As well as using his dreams to inspire his lyrics (I Can Feel Your Power) he visited a Tibetan monastery in Scotland to study Buddhism in order to help him manage the difficulties of his new life. At the monastery he had the unusual experience of meeting a soul-mate and felt a severe case of’ Déjà Vu’.

Ian Martyn’s unique approach to writing his music is that of writing the lyrics as a wholly meaningful and poetic piece of literature, so beautiful that the words alone just scream out for music. Ian’s music aids the healing process of any kind of personal strife or bereavement and is the perfect soundtrack to finding a new directions in life.

Alongside his emotional life journey Ian features international artists for his music artwork. Some artists worthy of note are Jack Vettriano (on ‘Why Don’t You Tell Me’), Leonid Afremov and Sera Knight (on ‘You Are The One’), Laurie Hamilton, Adam Scott Miller, Delmary and (on ‘I Can Feel Your Power’) Daniel Eskridge (on ‘Dance With Spirits’), Rassouili and Josephine Wall (on ‘Déjà Vu’).

They have all said they are delighted and honoured to have a share in Ian’s journey and adding an extra dimension to Ian’s enlightening music.
