Jessie Buckley & Bernard Butler

For All Our Days That Tear The Heart

    Jessie Buckley and Bernard Butler have joined forces on For All Our Days That Tear The Heart, a collection of twelve mesmerising new songs. The meeting of an Academy Award-nominated actress and singer, and a Brit Award-winning producer and musician, feels like the tale of two distant stars coming together and forming their own constellation.

    It all started with a FaceTime call from Butler’s North London kitchen to Buckley’s mountaintop residence in County Kerry, with their friendship growing from an unlikely shared love of Killarney and the small island of Valentia where Butler would go on holiday as a boy. A mutual friend had a feeling they might spark. Buckley had been listening to Old Wow by Sam Lee, produced by Bernard, in the downtime between rehearsals for the National Theatre’s televised production of Romeo and Juliet. Butler had seen Jessie perform a song on an American chat show in promotion of 2018’s Wild Rose. “I remember clocking just how much character there was in her voice and how freely she expressed it,” recalls Bernard.

    If the project grew from a shared love and deep ancestral attachment to Ireland - Butler’s parents come from Dun Laoghaire, one of the coastal towns of Dublin Bay - then these songs swoop out from the Emerald Isle’s west coast, taking home Appalachian blues and delicate modal jazz from across the Atlantic, and taking in the bullfighting arenas of Andalusia along the way. The first song the pair wrote together, ‘The Eagle and the Dove’ - named after a book by the interwar proto-feminist writer Vita Sackville-West - set the tone for the project, and also set in motion a sense of adventure that permeates For All Our Days That Tear The Heart. Invoking the passionate theatre of flamenco, augmented by Jessie’s sumptuous, soaring vocals, the pair recorded the intuitive dance moves of Juana Jimenez with a microphone placed on the floor of the Birchanger Village Hall in Essex of all places.

    There’s a physicality and a flow to the songs that somehow bear testament to the manner in which Jessie and Bernard threw themselves into making the album. Amid the constant exchange of ideas, songs fomented at speed. The sublime ‘20 Years A Growing’ takes its title from Maurice O’Sullivan’s celebrated 1933 account of life in Great Blasket Island off the coast of County Kerry. The more personal, piano-led ‘Seven Red Rose Tattoos’, captures the essence of loss and longing, with Jessie’s vocal lines a counterpoint to Byron Wallen’s doleful, muted trumpet: “I wanted it to be like a conversation with the ghosts of my thoughts,” says Buckley.

    The dynamic title track is built around words that Jessie had written during a low period whilst in Chicago filming Fargo, with her extraordinary vocal blazing an emotional vapour trail through Bernard’s chamber-folk arrangement. And the pair draw inspiration from the ensemble work of seminal jazz-folk innovators Pentangle on songs like ‘I’ve Got A Feeling’ and ‘Sweet Child’, as the rhythm section of Misha Mullov-Abbado and Chris Vatalaro effectively converse with Jessie’s bewitching vocals. “Right now, I feel like I’ll never make another album again,” says Jessie, “because I can’t imagine another album happening the way this one did. It’s amazing that it even happened once. This obscure, organic, odd little thing that just found us.”

    For All Our Days That Tear The Heart is a remarkable work of windswept beauty and catharsis, and given that it seemed to come out of nowhere, it also feels like a gift. “More than anything, I wanted it to be joyous – properly joyous – because there is such joy in Jessie, there really is,” says Bernard. “In spite of the darkness and the intensity in these songs, I’m just flying when I listen back to them.” 


    STAFF COMMENTS

    Barry says: Buckley and Butler combine their considerable talents into a grand, emotive swell of folky guitars and orchestral instrumentation. Beautifully swinging between folky minimalism with hushed vocals to grand, gothic strings and bold cinematic intensity. Really lovely stuff.

    Jennylee

    Tickles / Heart Tax

      Feeling is at the core of jennylee’s music. Having spent the past decade defining the grove that allows Warpaint the luxury to drift between genres and eras, jennylee’s solo record proved more loose, open, and driven by the rhythm of the heart. Critically acclaimed LA quartet Warpaint have been confounding expectation since the band’s inception in 2004. Releasing their third album ‘Heads Up’ to rave reviews in 2016, Warpaint remain on top of their game; cementing themselves as one of the bands of a generation.

        Despite almost three decades of active audio duty, Common remains at the cutting edge, and his 12th solo LP, "Let Love" is yet another example of his golden age brilliance. This brand new album includes the new single "Hercules”, as well as recent JAM! “HER Love” featuring Daniel Caesar, special guest Dwele, and an unreleased beat from J mother fucking DILLA. The likes of Jill Scott, Swizz Beats and A-Trak offer assistance on the lovestruck affair, while Common updates his conscious style with shout outs to Cardi B, ASAP Rocky, and Tyler The Creator. This is an album of pure positivity, a place of light in these dark times, and another winner from this legendary artist.

        Rock provocateur Marika Hackman will release her highly anticipated new album ‘Any Human Friend’ via AMF Records and on Sub Pop in North and South America'.

        Any Human Friend’ has been co-produced by David Wrench (Frank Ocean, The xx, Let’s Eat Grandma) and Marika herself, and shows off a sharper and more liberated sound than ever before.

        Marika is a ‘Rid of Me’-era PJ Harvey for the inclusive generation: unbounded by musical genre, a preternatural lyricist and tunesmith who isn’t afraid to go there. 

        STAFF COMMENTS

        Barry says: A brilliant outing here from Marika Hackman, beautifully marrying the synths and rhythmic drive of 80's pop music with her notoriously superb songwriting prowess, immediately rewarding but develops with every listen. A wonderful change of pace.

Whereas, ‘Overtime’ was produced by by Andy Ferguson & Matt Mcbriar of Bicep & James Ford. It has been a transformative period for Jessie that has seen her reconnect with her roots. Jessie has been in the studio working on her next album and ‘Adore You’ and ‘Overtime’ are a taster of what’s to come.

                  Ian Brown

                  Ripples

                    Ian Brown's comeback record is everything you'd want from the funky monkey. Care-free, breezy, uplifting vibes with words that mix the cosmic with a conscience, this record was made almost totally independently. Just Ian, his sons and his old engineer provide that unique blend of the groovy, quirky, and endlessly catchy that we've all come to love and expect.

                    There's mellow, soulful, bluesy funkers, a rock reggae cover, a reggae reggae cover, a couple of slinky, bouncy, elastic shufflers, some massive, psych-tinged slowies (Syd meets Lennon!) and his most Roses sounding tune so far: evidently a ballad ABOUT The Roses (insert broken-hearted emoji here!?)

                    Soundwise this is Ian's most beautifully produced record by a mile. Warm, fat and analogue, with killer basslines and a big bottom end, there's a sparseness in the textures but a depth and width in the mix that's more akin to late 70's reggae than any old 'indie' rock. Ripples is all about the SPACE. Ian's voice and words, as charismatic and enigmatic as ever, are central to it all. And he's never sounded better. Self produced, self written (bar 3 co-writes with his sons. What could be more natural?) and with zero session musicians in sight, this feels like Unfinished Monkey Business, the Second Chapter. But with way better songs, way lusher production; a glorious combo of Tunes, space and sound. The dream belongs to the dreamers!

                    'Blossoms second album sees them return with 11 tracks of 80s inspired synth-layered pop bliss. On lead single 'I Can't Stand It', the band bring the tempo up and combine it with cascading synth riffs, while 'There's A Reason Why (I Never Returned Your Calls)' brings a previously unheard anthemic rock quality to the bands sound'...

                    Furthering their domination of the northern music scene, they take the rawkous sound of their debut and bolster it with the experience learnt from their time touring, absorbing influence from all corners of the musical spectrum. This is a confident and mature follow-up and one sure to cement their reputation and productivity for years to come.

                        The Strypes are pleased to announce their third album – ‘Spitting Image’ – due for release on June 16th on Virgin EMI. The news comes alongside the announcement of a UK headline tour in the summer.

                        London four piece Bastille return with their long-awaited second album ‘Wild World’, following their worldwide number 1, multi-platinum debut album ‘Bad Blood’ which spawned the humungous chart and radio hit singles ‘Pompeii’, ‘Things We Lost In The Fire’ and ‘Of The Night’. Bastille toured the world many times over in support of ‘Bad Blood’ writing and recording ‘Wild World’ along the way. Wild World retains the vivid, rich, filmic song-writing of its predecessor but pushes the band’s distinctive sound in exciting new directions.

                        KT Tunstall returns with an explosive 11 track collection of songs on her fifth record ‘KIN’. A year later and ‘KIN’ was born. Produced by Tony Hoffer (Beck, Belle and Sebastien), and written and recorded by KT in LA, it exemplifies the very best of guitar pop. The album’s new focused sound is best heard on current single ‘Evil Eye’; a stripped back, primal rock ‘n’ roll track that seeded the whole record. The diverse collection also includes a duet with fan James Bay, the raucous rebellion of ‘It Took Me So Long To Get Here, But Here I Am’, the shimmering pop of new single ‘Maybe It’s A Good Thing’ and ‘Run On Home’, the call to arms of ‘Hard Girls’, and the beautiful album closer ‘Love Is An Ocean’.

The new album features the brand new single ‘Get Into It’ as well as live show favourites ‘Eighty-Four’ and ‘Scumbag City’.

                        Matt and Kim, aka Matt Johnson (vocals/keyboards) and Kim Schifino (drums), get things rolling in their exuberant style with a performance lyric video for the song “Get It”: Three minutes and seven seconds of heaven for anyone who has, or hasn’t yet, seen Matt and Kim’s legendary live shows.

                        Previously, Matt and Kim’s video for “Lessons Learned,” in which they strip naked in Times Square on a very cold February day, won an MTV Music Award for “Breakthrough Video” in 2009. 2012’s Lightning (FADER) featured the Alternative radio hit “Let’s Go” and single “Daylight” was certified Gold in the US and very close to platinum certification. All the while they toured the globe, becoming the go-to band for raw exuberance, bombastic beats, sing-along refrains and dance-ready anthems on larger and larger scales.

                        New Jersey rockers The Gaslight Anthem return with their eagerly-anticipated new album ‘Get Hurt’. Recorded at the legendary Blackbird Studios in Nashville with producer Mike Crossey (The 1975, Arctic Monkeys and Jake Bugg), ‘Get Hurt’ sees The Gaslight Anthem pushing their raw, stripped back rock ‘n’ roll into new territory, drawing on a fresh palette of influences ranging across folk, punk, and Americana. It is an album that is heavier, and yet at the same time more intimate, than anything they have produced to date.

                        JACK WHITE, JEFF TWEEDY, FUN., JARVIS COCKER, JACK BLACK, AND A HOST OF OTHERS JOIN BECK TO BRING ACCLAIMED SHEET MUSIC-ONLY ALBUM TO LIFE

                        The now legendary Beck, Song Reader - twenty Beck compositions previously released exclusively as stunningly illustrated sheet music in partnership with McSweeney’s - receives a long awaited traditional release when Warby Parker/Capitol Records issues the Beck Song Reader compilation album, produced by Beck and Randall Poster, known for his music supervision work with directors Wes Anderson, Martin Scorsese, Sam Mendes and many others. Warby Parker will commemorate the release of Song Reader by reissuing limited-edition Carmichael frames created in collaboration with Beck, this time in Black Cherry—as well as a new edition of the Song Reader book, featuring two new prints from artist Marcel Dzama.

                        The 20-track all-star collection features exclusively recorded versions of Song Reader charts by the likes of Jack White, Jeff Tweedy, David Johansen, Jason Isbell, Fun., Eleanor Friedberger, and several more including Beck himself.

                        The Warby Parker release of Beck Song Reader marks the first officially recorded incarnation of the project, which has already inspired interpretations from hundreds of musicians the world over. The record includes the studio-quality debut of songs previously only played live either by Beck himself or at one of the handful of Song Reader concerts staged over the last two years. The most recent of these was presented by the L.A. Philharmonic in partnership with McSweeney’s and Warby Parker at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles on November 24, 2013. Described by The Los Angeles Times as an “expertly delivered and received night… another big step in Beck's long, fascinating evolution,” the show’s highlights included Jarvis Cocker’s interpretively danced “Why Did You Make Me Care?" and Jack Black’s borderline frightening “We All Wear Cloaks,” the latter of which makes its recorded debut on the Beck Song Reader album.
