Cholesterol Jones: Debuts New Single, ‘Satan’s in Heaven’

Bavarian-born and resident in both the US and UK,  Cholesterol Jones, debuts his new single ‘Satan’s in Heaven’.

The single has an unusual video to accompany it. All animated, it’s sure to catch viewers attention.

The video tells a story of Trump and the election – heaven is America and Satan is Trump, on the off-chance you didn’t quite get it!

If you’re into gospel/country music then this song is definitely for you, though this only tells half the story, as the rest of the EP see’s him playing everything from pop to indie-rock.  You can have a good old sing-a-long either way.

You can watch the video below:

Once you start watching it, it becomes disturbingly addictive. We dare you to tear yourself away!

Disturbing new Video from Mavis Victory Project. We Like!

Blimey. We didn’t expect that. On paper, the inventively-monikered Mavis Victory Project come across as a bit Arctic Monkeys – edgy without being sharp enough to cut yourself particularly seriously. We may have been mistaken.

We’re not entirely certain we know what’s going on in the video. The singer, one of four brothers in the band, starts off horizontal, much in the same way he sings but he seems to have invited some unusual friends over. If they were banning videos purely for being suggestive, this would have to be buried at sea. Somehow, even though it’s largely down to some saucy looks given by the ladies in the video, we feel utterly filthy. What’s happened to us?!

As we progress, we end up in a warehouse populated with torch-bearing hooded sorts with the odd flag being wafted. We’ve gone on holiday by mistake, as it says in the film. Has this anything to do with the song or is the whole thing signing us up for conscription to a life in a dodgy cult. We’re going along with it, anything for a bit of sleaze.

Super Talented Teen Shane Thomas Due to Release New Single Mrs Matisse 10th December

SHANE THOMAS01

 

Okay so this little talent isn’t strictly relevant to guitars, but we’re just too impressed with the guy to miss the opportunity to shout about him!

Formerly dubbed ‘Britain’s Mozart’, Shane Thomas is quite possibly the most talented teenager across the British music industry.

New single, ‘Mrs Matisee’ is to be released 10th December, prior to the release of his debut album, ‘From Me To You’, due for release soon after.

‘Mrs Matisee’ showcases Shane’s incredible talent and beautifully demonstrates the amazing capabilities of this young composer. The tack in undeniably stunning and transpires audiences into the fascinating world of Shane Thomas.

Shane was inspired to write the track earlier this year when he saw a painting by Henri Matisse. He was so taken with the beauty of the painting that he decided to compose a piece of music about it. Shortly after writing the track Shane discovered that Debussy had been inspired by the very same painting and produced a well known piece of music called, Arabesque.

Shane began playing the piano at the tender age of seven and has since taken on the challenge of mastering the art of the cello and percussion.  Shane dreams up all of his music. He has never sat at a piano to compose anything. He does it all in his head, then later sits to play the piece. He can immediately play any melody or song he hears.

Aged ten, Shane was the youngest person in history to be signed to a music publisher, E.M.I. music.

Peter Andre, Jamie Cullum, Bradley Walsh and Jason Mansford are all fans of the child star.

Bristol Folk band ‘Apple of My Eye’ are set to sail folk scene with new album ‘Seven Tides’

P1030725 edited

Soo maybe not heavy on the guitar, but we still absolutely love these guys!

Contemporary folk band, ‘Apple Of My Eye’ announce release of new album ‘Seven Tides’, due out 1st December.  Beautifully arranged epic songs in a unique twist on classic folk themes.

Now living in London, the majority of the band hail from the historic maritime city of Bristol and their songs draw inspiration from both cities and from the sea, a theme that runs throughout their second album. Their engaging storytelling style and four part harmonies explore tales of love, loss, adventure and ruin.

The album was recorded at Cowshed Studios and engineered by the hugely respected folk and jazz engineer Joe Leach. They decided to record the entire thing on 2 inch, 24 track analogue recording tape to give a warmer and richer sound than digital techniques.

Having spent the summer performing at some of the most exciting festivals in the UK, including, Tall Ships Festival Greenwich, Secret Garden Party, Wilderness and headlining Exile festival in Sheffield, the band are flourishing into an exciting folk force, not to be missed.

The band describe their music as “brand new old songs” and collectively generate all their own material drawing on personal experiences and carefully arranging the music on the guitar, bouzouki, violin, double bass, mandolin and harmonica.

Band member Chris Rusbridge lives on a narrow boat on the waterways of London, where often a rehearsal will turn in to a performance as passers by become a listening crowd. No London public house is safe from the spontaneous band. They are well known for bursting into song and entertaining the drinkers of London pubs.

Catch the guys live in action here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gsyM68eQux4

The band boasts an impressive hoard of musical talent:

Kit Massey (Violin) and Phil Cornwell (Bass) are both full time professional musicians. Cornwell is the musical director of West End musical “The Scotsboro Boys’’ and Massey  was formally a violinist with the Santiago Philamonia in Chile and has worked as a session musician with artists such as Emile Sande, Dizzie Rascal, Muse and Jamie Cullum. Arran Glass (Vocals and Guitar) and Alex Scott (Mandolin) are both professional Actor-Musicians and Puppeteers who perform and compose the music for a variety of theatre and television. Chris (Bouzouki), Dan (Harmonica) and Ellie Rusbridge (Vocals) are all siblings and come from a rich folk music heritage as their parents met in a folk club and still perform in their own folk band Thornbridge.

RÖYKSOPP & ROBYN PREMIERE ‘MONUMENT’ VIDEO

 

RobynRöyksopp & Robyn’s ‘Do It Again’ has become one of this Summer’s most talked about records and live shows, garnering worldwide critical praise, a sold-out tour and chart success. 

As Röyksopp & Robyn come to the end of their DIA tour they bid farewell in a fantastic fashion, with the release of their final video – the epic 10-minute long track ‘Monument’, which is the inspiring mini-album opener.

Director Max Vitali created a weightless and timeless space by shooting on a wire-based camera, drawing the viewer in on a journey of self discovery which is a central theme throughout the song.

“The video is about exploring the space around you and in you and finding your own space within it all. Half real, half fantasy. The way I see film is as a hybrid of technology and emotions, and hopefully there’s an artistic vision there as well. In a way that is what Röyksopp & Robyn also do, they merge something real with something computer-generated to create bigger landscapes than possible without the help of technology.” (Max Vitali) 

“The video for ‘Monument’ is a kind of inner journey which I think is also what the music is about. Like space in time and physicality and your own experience of your body.” (Robyn) 

“There is light and darkness colliding and it’s all being served on a lit-up platter to encapsulate this ceremony we are partaking in. It has been influenced by the iconic imagery in 70’s sci-fi comics that we grew up with.” (Svein Berge) 

Röyksopp and Robyn’s ‘Do It Again’ mini-album hit #1 on the iTunes Electronic chart in over 10 countries including the UK, US, Germany, Sweden, Holland, Canada and Japan and entered the Top 10 on the iTunes Album chart in over 10 countries including the US, Australia and France with a #1 chart position in Sweden. ‘Do It Again’ entered the Official UK Album Chart mid-week at #8. The ‘Do It Again’ mini-album serves as an introduction to the new Röyksopp album, details of which will be announced soon.

Can you smell that Burning noise?

A crazy tune that harks back to the hippy era with a nonsensical look into self discovery and revolution. This track from ‘flies on you’, is all about the development of the times from the riots of the thatcher years, through to the hippy revolution and straight on to the present day of post modern  rock.

They want to create a new sound and seemed to have done a pretty good job of it!

 

Take a listen and tell us what you think of it in the comments. We look forward to hearing from you.

Kevine Devine reveals new acoustic video ahead of UK February tour

Kevin DivineAs a taster for his upcoming UK tour, Kevin Devine has revealed a new homemade acoustic video. Filmed by himself, his intimate rendition of ‘Bubblegum’ is streaming on YouTube now.

Following the release of his two albums Bulldozer and Bubblegum last year, the Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter is set to return to the UK in February for a headline tour. The tour kicks off February 4th with an already sold out show at The Lexington, London.

February UK Headline dates:

Tue 4th Feb 2014              The Lexington, London – SOLD OUT
Wed 5th Feb 2014             Louisianna, Bristol
Thu 6th Feb 2014              Soup Kitchen, Manchester
Fri 7th Feb 2014                Nice n Sleazys, Glasgow

Bulldozer and Bubblegum, were drastically different sounding albums yet equally acclaimed. Both albums were fan funded through a record-setting Kickstarter campaign and released via Big Scary Monsters.

For Bubblegum, Kevin was joined by his Goddamn Band to create a raw and fuzzy yet lyrically deft rock record. Much of its sound was brought out by producer Jesse Lacey, frontman of Brand New. The tracks that make up Bulldozer, the more folk-rock led album, features stripped backed, heartfelt tracks which maintain Kevin’s penchant for penning tracks washed with pop sensibility and lyrical depth.
