Max Richter

Voices

    Over a decade after its inception, ground-breaking composer Max Richter announces the release of VOICES – a major new recording project inspired by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. In a time of dramatic global change, VOICES offers a musical message of hope. Max Richter invited people around the world to be part of the piece, crowd-sourcing readings of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to be interwoven into the work, which features an ‘upside-down’ orchestra. He received hundreds of submissions in over 70 languages. These readings form the aural landscape that the music flows through: they are the VOICES of the title.

    Max Richter explains, “I like the idea of a piece of music as a place to think, and it is clear we all have some thinking to do at the moment. We live in a hugely challenging time and, looking around at the world we have made, it’s easy to feel hopeless or angry. But, just as the problems we face are of our own making, so their solutions are within our reach, and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights is something that offers us a way forward. Although it isn’t a perfect document, the declaration does represent an inspiring vision for the possibility of better and kinder world.”

      Melt Yourself Down

      100% YES!

        After a few years out to perfect their jaw-dropping new album 100% YES,  Melt Yourself Down are back. Thanks to collaborations with production legends Youth and Ben Hillier, the band have reimagined themselves and  created a bruising re-up of their signature sound with added synths, lyrics, anthems and epic joyrides. They took their sweet time crafting this new sound and it was worth it - 100% YES is the band at their finest.

        MJ Cole

        Madrugada

          Madrugada is the Spanish word for those strange, seductive hours before sunrise. A familiar stretch of time for the seasoned raver – and for MJ Cole, an artist who’s spent much of his career exploring those magical moments. Yet despite so many nights in the clubs, some of his most powerful memories of the madrugada hours have nothing to do with dancefloor euphoria.

          “I've experienced a lot of early mornings, but having been up from the night before,” he says, remembering one special morning on the Severn Bridge, driving home from a solo gig and watching the sun come up. “For me, the early morning is a significant period.” With MJ Cole presents Madrugada, he sets out to capture that special feeling with an album unlike anything he’s done before.

            Elvis Costello And The Imposters

            Look Now

              Elvis Costello and The Imposters – Steve Nieve (keyboards), Davey Faragher (bass), Pete Thomas (drums) – have made a sensational new album that ranks alongside the best work this singularly great artist has ever produced.

              Recorded in Hollywood, New York City and Vancouver, British Columbia, ‘Look Now’ is beautiful in its simplicity, reflective in its lyrical vision, surrounded by melodies and orchestrations that are nothing short of heavenly. It’s the first album Costello has made with The Imposters since the 2008 release of ‘Momofuku’ and his first new album since the acclaimed 2013 Roots collaboration, ‘Wise Up Ghost’.

              Anyone anywhere in the world who has seen Elvis Costello and The Imposters live can testify to their unmitigated swagger. Costello’s suspicion that it was time to return to the studio was confirmed while on the ‘Imperial Bedroom & Other Chambers’ tour of the USA, last summer and he realized the power and sheer musicality of The Imposters had never really been fully captured on one record.

              'Windy City’ is Alison Krauss’s first solo studio album since 1999. It is a beautifully created collection of classic songs, from the most awarded female in Grammy history, produced by Nashville veteran Buddy Cannon. ‘Windy City’ spans across different eras and genres with some familiar tracks – including “Gentle On My Mind,” a signature song of Glen Campbell’s, and “You Don’t Know Me” which was a hit for Eddy Arnold and Ray Charles. In 2000, Alison’s feature in the ‘O Brother Where Art Thou?’ soundtrack paved the way for contemporary popular folk music. In 2007, her multi-platinum album ‘Raising Sand’ with Robert Plant became a global smash, selling over 3 million albums.

              The Rolling Stones

              Out Of Our Heads

                There are six different tracks to the US version, and although there are three Jagger/Richards songs there’s only one group written song, meaning this, in marked contrast to the US version of the album, has a preponderance of covers on it. There is not a hit single on the album, which probably accounts for it failing to become the band’s third number one in succession on the UK album charts, although it was not unusual at this time for artists to release albums without including their singles.

                Elvis Costello and The Roots have announced a collaborative album entitled Wise Up Ghost which is exclusively released.

                The existence of the record was first revealed by ?uestlove as an aside during an interview with Billboard Magazine in January and a small number of test pressings were distributed as white labels on Record Store Day on the 20th of April. Most of the sessions took place in secret at Feliz Habitat Studios in the dead of night, while others were in plain sight at Costello’s Hookery Crookery Studios.

                Elvis described the record as “the shortest distance between here and there” and containing “both rhythm and what is read”. Ahmir says, “It's a moody, brooding affair, cathartic rhythms and dissonant lullabies. I went stark and dark on the music, Elvis went HAM on some ole Ezra Pound shit.”

                For Now I Am Winter is Ólafur Arnalds’ third full-length studio album. His earlier albums, soundtracks and EPs, have been released through the Berlin based cult label Erased Tapes.

                Building and expanding on his previous more minimalist work, Arnalds’ new album is his first to involve a full orchestra (coarranged by Nico Muhly) and a vocalist (Agent Fresco lead singer Arnór Dan) on selected tracks, making it his most broadly appealing work to date.

                With his previous recordings, extensive touring activities and prominent synch placements of his music he has managed to build up a dedicated fan base in Europe, North America and China.

                  The Rolling Stones

                  Their Satanic Majesties Request

                  For years dismissed as a self-indulgent cul-de-sac into psychedelic whimsy, "Their Satanic Majesties..." has undergone a 21st century renaissance. Tracks like "2000 Light Years From Home" and "2000 Man" have been namechecked by figures as diverse as Primal Scream's Bobby Gillespie, film-maker Wes Anderson and Peter Gabriel (!). Granted it probably doesn't stand up to the band's later albums but neither does it deserve to languish as a druggy slab of indulgence.

                  Let It Bleed

                  Quite simply, over a five year period, the Stones wrote the rule book on what a rock'n'roll band should sound / look / act like and one listen to "Let It Bleed" should prove why. Low down and dirty, soulful and repentent, anthemic, raucous, profane, it's all here - 'White voodoo' to quote one Johnny Marr. There's no point trying to describe the tracks any more, just to list them; "Gimme Shelter", "You Can't Always Get What You Want", "Monkey Man", and more.

                  Camel

                  Moonmadness

                  Following up an instrumental concept album ("The Snow Goose") Camel returned to a more song based release with their 1976 album "Moonmadness". Producer Rhett Davies gave them a punchier sound and the album was their biggest seller in America thus far. Now remastered with five extra tracks and new sleevenotes.

                  Caravan

                  Live At The Fairfield Halls 1974

                  Previously unreleased in Britain, remastered and with extra tracks, this classic 1974 Caravan performance is as fresh and vibrant today as it was a quarter of a century ago. The 12 page booklet features previously unseen photographs of the band and is a great addition to the Decca / Deram remastered edition.
