Liam Gallagher & John Squire

Liam Gallagher & John Squire

    Long-term friends with a mutual admiration for each other’s work, the idea of a collaboration started when John joined Liam on-stage at his biblical knebworth shows.

    Song ideas were soon flowing, and the album took shape with an intuitive intensity while in Los Angeles with the revered producer Greg Kurstin. He played bass throughout the record, while drums were performed by Joey Waronker (Beck, R.E.M., Atoms For Peace).

    STAFF COMMENTS

    Barry says: I think about when I used to listen to Oasis and The Stone Roses back in 'The Day' and imagine how i'd feel if you told me that this would be a collaboration that could happen in the future. It's Squire's unmistakeable songwriting and playing, with Gallagher's vocals over the top. I bet he's even got his arms behind his back. Danceable, baggy psychedelic rock with vox one of the most legendary vocalists of his generation.

    Coldplay release 'Ghost Stories', the follow-up album to 'Mylo Xyloto' via Parlophone / Atlantic Records. A minimalist new approach gives Coldplay's latest the liminal, lonely feel of a Chris Martin solo album. It shares a simple sparseness with 'Parachutes', but the approach is radically different. In harness with producers as diverse as Paul Epworth, Timbaland and Avicii, Coldplay have never sounded more electronic. Where 'Ghost Stories' really differs from 'Mylo Xyloto' is in a sharp dialling down of intensity, sonically if not lyrically, with only the Avicii-led 'A Sky Full Of Stars' cutting loose, and even then as a hesitant retread of 'Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall'.


    Recently seen on tour with Deap Vally, at festivals including Reading, Leeds and Bestival, and strongly tipped following their introductory singles ‘I Wanna Dance (But I Don’t Know How)’ and ‘Deadbolt’, Skaters release their debut album ‘Manhattan’ which they will then follow with a UK tour which includes a London date at Dingwalls.

    Skaters’ music, ethos, and attitude are remarkably entrenched in the late nights, eclectic characters and punk roots of their New York City home. Recorded by John Hill (Santigold, Wavves) in the API room at Greenwich Village's iconic Electric Lady Studios, ‘Manhattan’ is a statement of purpose and a portrait of life in New York City.

    The Subways

    I Won't Let You Down

      The Subways have returned with their usual amount of boundless energy, a stunningly critically acclaimed album and an abundance of show stopping festival appearances across the summer. The band follow up their debut single from the album "Alright" with the instantly catchy and radio friendly "I Won't Let You Down". The single sees the band return to their 'rockier' roots and is a steadfast fan and live favourite.

      Paul Simon

      Surprise

        "Surprise" is the first album that Paul Simon has worked on in collaboration with legendary producer Brian Eno. The result is a captivating collection of songs captured in mesmerising style by Eno's inventive production. It is his first album since 2000's "You're The One", and is reminiscent of classics from his back catalogue such as "Paul Simon", "There Goes Rhyming Simon" and "Still Crazy After All These Years".

        Crazy Horse

        The Complete Reprise Recordings 1971-73

          A two disc collection containing remastered versions of the "Crazy Horse" and "Loose" albums in their entirety, with a second disc of previously unreleased tracks from the Crazy Horse sessions including Neil Young's "When You Dance You Can Really Love". With their 1971 self-titled debut, Crazy Horse offered a tough, soulful alternative to the mellow, self-satisfied brand of country-rock that had settled over American music at the dawn of the decade. The band's line-up on Crazy Horse (lead singer-guitarist Danny Whitten, bassist Billy Talbot, drummer Ralph Molina, producer-keyboardist Jack Nitzsche, and singer-guitarist Nils Lofgren) never recorded together again. But with Talbot and Molina at the core, Crazy Horse continued to be known as Neil Young's favourite backing band, occasionally making records on their own.

          Neil Young

          Prairie Wind

            Already hailed as on a par with legendary albums such as "Harvest" and "Harvest Moon", "Prairie Wind" features contributions from keyboardist Spooner Oldham, pedal-steel guitarist Ben Keith, drummer Chad Cromwell, percussionist Karl Himmel, bassist Rick Rosas and vocalist Emmylou Harris, along with the Fisk University Jubilee Singers and other guests.

            The Von Bondies

            Pawn Shoppe Heart

              Fresh (well, knackered really!) from his handbags With Jack (well, it was quite a bit more than handbags, actually, wasn't it?) episode, Jason Stollsteimer and co. have upped the ante for their second album and major label debut. The sound is rich, clear and powerful (Courtesy of Talking Heads' Jerry Harrison) and the songs go from Stooges dirges through Southern gothic melodrama and bruised soul power to Pixies-ish trash and sweet bubblegum pop. Throw in a bit of Cramps and erm...Gary Glitter (is it still OK to do that?) and add their girl / boy cool'n'sexy call and response dynamic and you have one excellent LP. It's a huge step on from their debut. Who needs Jack White, hey?!
