Max Jury

Modern World

    ‘Modern World’ is the second album from 26-year-old Iowa native Max Jury. The follow up to 2016’s critically acclaimed, self-titled debut, ‘Modern World’ is a graceful, sophisticated and truly contemporary body of work, brimming with Jury’s vast and eclectic range of influences. It is an album about life, friendship and facing each day with a renewed clarity. Produced by four time Grammy nominated Robin Hannibal (Kendrick Lamar, The Internet, Jessie Ware, Anderson .Paak), the album is steeped in soul and jazz influences. The stunning ‘Stillness’ for example, arrives with a bassline that wouldn’t sound out of place on a Thundercat record. ‘Fading Out of You’ manages to evoke Jury’s newly chosen home of Paris before a huge RnB beat comes in, complimented perfectly by the warmth and subtlety of his vocal, which since his debut, has grown into an androgynous instrument that dances across his music.

    Psychedelic Porn Crumpets

    And Now For The Whatchamacallit

    Thundering over the horizon out of Perth, Australia, the psyche-rock capital of the Universe, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets are taking the World by the horns. Having spent the last year slaying sold-out audiences in US, UK and Australia with their blistering live shows, the band have thrown down the gauntlet with their new album, ‘And Now For The Whatchamacallit’.

    The new album marks an exciting new chapter for Psychedelic Porn Crumpets. Recorded between frontman Jack McEwan’s bedroom and Tone City Studios in Perth, mixed by Michael Jelinek (Gunns)and mastered by John Davis (Gorillaz, The Killers), And Now For The Whatchamacallit is representative of the development in the band’s huge sound, and their most anticipated release yet. “The original concept was to take a 1930’s carnival that had been re-imagined for future generations, a collage of Punch and Judy, Carousels and coconut shy’s that progresses in musical concepts and travels with the listener. Then as we started traveling I was swept off into my own kind of circus, the odyssey of touring life. Large nights out, larger characters, drunken recollections of foreign cities and rabbit hole-ing into insanity.”

    The 10-track record is punctuated by the singles ‘Social Candy’, ‘Keen For Kick Ons?’ and ‘Bill’s Mandolin’, all perfect slices of manic Psychedelic Porn Crumpets fury. This new album positions them more than ever as a band ready to explode with exciting energy and is a continuation of the musicianship fans have seen bolden over live shows and recent releases.

    STAFF COMMENTS

    Mine says: I'm gonna go ahead and assume that the band name alone is intriguing enough for some of you to grab a copy of PPC's 'And Now For The Whatchamacallit', but if that's not the case and you want to know what else they've got going for them, just imagine King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard and Pond going on tour together and all ending up on the same stage... Voilà!

    ‘In Plain Sight’ sees Honeyblood’s Stina Tweeddale finally step forward and claim the mantle of her project as her sole vision. Three albums in, the project she birthed seven years ago finds its most steely-focus and ambitious form yet. Stina takes the solo reigns in collaboration with super-producer John Congleton (Angel Olsen, St Vincent) for her most definitive Honeyblood LP to date.

    ALASKALASKA

    The Dots

      Melding together their disparate influences in off-kilter pop and jazz gives ALASKALASKA’s highly-anticipated debut record the push-pull feeling of a group existing without any boundaries. Not fitting neatly into either the post-punk explosion, which defined their South London home a few years back, or the more recent emergence of a future-facing jazz underground, ALASKALASKA dodged the area’s typicalities. The lyrical potency of the former and the languid, freeform attitude of the latter can be felt across The Dots, but ALASKALASKA paint those influences in their own broad brushstrokes in the same way as Bjork, Kate Bush, Arca or Fever Ray before them.

      Traversing influences that cross genre and era, the artistry of Hollie Fullbrook and her band spans delicate folk, lustrous dream pop. Production by David Lynch, Olympic Girls bring ebullient psychedelia to the album.

      Building on the sparse minimalism and mesmerising songwriting of earlier releases, Olympic Girls comprises a taut and agile quiver of songs, dancing with explorative instrumentation and a pop sensibility that springs with life.

      “How much would you be willing to give?” Fullbrook asks point-blank in first single ‘How Much’, ahead of woozily discordant strings and a stomping neopsychedelic rhythm. The lyric brims with imagery of supermarket breakdowns, lilos, snarks and silos while an anthemic guitar hook soars throughout. Not content to leave the song at a stable conclusion, a thumping ‘I am the Walrus’- esque bass outro propels the track boomerang-style back to a space of adroit experimentation.

      “I’ve heard Olympic Girls, and I had to pick my jaw up off the floor”, wrote Grant Smithies. “Clustered around more introspective passages typical of confessional singer-songwriters are gnarlier phrases that give her work its buzzy voltage: arresting visual images, weird associations, daisy-chains of telling detail.”

      “…an album confident in its vulnerability and luxuriating in a bigger sound.” - LOUD & QUIET (8/10).

      “It’s a song that certainly leaves a mark, and suggests that seeing Tiny Ruins in their upcoming tour will be an undoubtedly memorable experience.” - THE 405. 

      “a twilight piece of pared down indie pop” - CLASH.

      Can you sleep? (04:30) Idler chronicles a personal struggle with insomnia that inspired the album’s title, it combines bossa nova, 70s analog synths and the polymorphous vibrations of London’s new burgeoning jazz scene.

      Jamie Isaac is a young producer and songwriter, born in Croydon to Burmese and British parents. He signed to Marathon Artists in 2014 and has been harnessing his sound ever since, operating in the space between jazz, soul, R&B, electronics and hip hop. Across a handful of singles and EPs, as well as a mixtape, his debut album and its follow-up, he has evolved into a formidable artist with a transatlantic following.

      STAFF COMMENTS

      Millie says: This might just be the perfect hybrid of synths, hip hop-jazz and electronic sound wrapped up in one record like a present. I can't get enough of the soft dreamy vocals, you need to listen to this it's a beaut!
