Prince

Around The World In A Day - Vinyl Edition

    'Purple Rain' made Prince sound like he could do anything, but it still didn't prepare even his most fervent fans for the insular psychedelia of 'Around The World In A Day'. Prince had made his interior world sound fascinating and utopian on 'Purple Rain', but 'Around The World In A Day' is filled with cryptic religious imagery, bizarre mysticism, and confounding metaphors which were drenched in heavily processed guitars, shimmering keyboards, grandiose strings, and layers of vocals.

    Prince

    Parade (Music From The Motion Picture Under The Cherry Moon)

      Prince's eighth studio album and the last to feature his backing band The Revolution, Parade was, essentially, the soundtrack to his second film 'Under The Cherry Moon' and was viewed at the time as a creative comeback after what many people perceived as it's disapponting predecessor 'Around The World In A Day'.

      Containing probably his biggest hit and scourge of every dj the world over 'Kiss' and a couple of lesser known, but absolute MONSTERS in 'Girls And Boys' and 'Sometimes It Snows In April' , 'Parade' is the sound of an artist at his creative peak.

      Released in 1979 and written, arranged, composed, produced and performed entirely by Prince, his self titled second album was recorded in a matter of weeks and provided the commercial and critical success he craved after the lukewarm reaction to his debut ‘For You’. He would go on to reinvent and define a decade with each subsequent release but everything you could want from a Prince album is here and, nearly forty years later, ‘Sexy Dancer’ and ‘I Wanna Be Your Lover’ can still bring a discerning dance floor to its knees.

      After three critically acclaimed Top 10 albums, a succession of major awards and a growing list of festival headline sets, Foals will be propelled to bold new heights with the August 28th release of their eagerly anticipated new album ‘What Went Down’. Produced by James Ford (Arctic Monkeys, Florence + the Machine), ‘What Went Down’ is an album that grapples with questions that are a world away from the bland bleatings of homogenised pop: permanence and impermanence; life and death; solitude; vulnerability; intimacy; passion; rage; humanity – weighty issues that make demands of the people creating that music, and of all those who listen to it, too.

      Sonically, it’s an album that precariously seesaws between primal aggression and naked vulnerability. It’s an approach that delivers a contrast of muscular shocks with the fiery central riff of ‘Snake Oil’ and the menacing percussive march of ‘Albatross’ set against some of the band’s most openly experimentally moments to date such as cocktail of afrobeat and drum machines that underpins ‘Night Swimmers’ and the stripped-back, vocal-led ‘Give It All’.

      Muse

      Drones

        Muse return with their new album “Drones”. Co-produced by Muse and Robert John “Mutt” Lange, the album contains 12 tracks.

        Matt Bellamy said "To me, 'Drones' are metaphorical psychopaths which enable psychopathic behaviour with no recourse. The world is run by Drones utilizing Drones to turn us all into Drones. This album explores the journey of a human, from their abandonment and loss of hope, to their indoctrination by the system to be a human drone, to their eventual defection from their oppressors." 

        Twin Shadow aka George Lewis Jr. announces that he will release his new album 'Eclipse' via Warner Bros. Records.

        Twin Shadow will play an exclusive and intimate show at London’s Electrowerkz on February 23rd. The show is co-presented by Beat Magazine and Eat Your Own Ears for London Fashion Week. Lewis and his band will return to the UK in Spring for a bigger headline show in support of the album.

        Twin Shadow has released two previous albums on indie labels Terrible and 4AD, 2010's 'Forget' and 2012's 'Confess.' Live performances opening for Florence & the Machine and The Strokes, appearances at Coachella, Lollapalooza, and Bonnaroo, plus his own headlining shows have earned George a reputation as a charismatic and compelling frontman. He has also performed on 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon' and 'Conan'. His track 'Old Love, New Love' featured in 'Grand Theft Auto V' was named one of the best songs of 2013 by Rolling Stone.

        Tori Amos

        Under The Pink - 180g Vinyl Edition

          After sharing personal and emotional accounts on her stunning debut, 'Little Earthquakes', Tori Amos stirs those sensations up for an eclectic yet beautiful account of female security on Under the Pink. Being a woman, she's always in question of her actions, calling out and interrogating the opposite sex for her own pleasure. But it's not necessarily with a scolding tone. She's playful with her signature piano accompaniment, but allows for a twisted mess of guitars, violins, and bass loops, which are quite enigmatic like Kate Bush as well. "Baker Baker" and "Bells for Her" are aching with ballad-esque beauty, but the seething "The Waitress" sparks Amos' inner devil. She's quaint at first, but rages into a scalding vocal queen. It makes her even more a pioneer for female originality and independence. Singles such as "God" and "Cornflake Girl" are sultry and provocative, depicting that she's everything but shy. Under the Pink is typically melodic, but it contains a heavy desire. Amos is still breaking into something more definitive as both a woman and a singer/songwriter. The lyrical imagery is much more wide open, something that will become Amos' ever-changing swan song.


          Neil Young

          Who's Gonna Stand Up

            ‘Who’s Gonna Stand Up?’ was originally performed at Crazy Horse shows in the UK this summer and more recently, as part of Young’s solo acoustic set at Farm Aid. The track makes a resounding plea to end dependence of fossil fuels in hopes of protecting the Earth’s fragile eco-systems for future generations.

            Neil Young took a different approach with this record, first recording the songs on his own in a solo-setting, then creating compelling versions of the songs in a new light with an orchestra and big band, resulting in a deeply-personal emotional listening experience throughout the new record.

            TRACK LISTING

            Side A: Who’s Gonna Stand Up - Solo Version + Orchestra Version
            Side B: Who’s Gonna Stand Up - Live Version (feat. Crazy Horse) + Children’s Version

                Neil Young

                Live At The Cellar Door

                  The album collects recordings made during Young’s intimate six-show solo stand at The Cellar Door in Washington D.C. between November 30th and December 2nd, 1970, a few months after Reprise released his classic third solo album After The Gold Rush in August. Of the many unique gems found on Live At The Cellar Door, a rare solo version of “Cinnamon Girl” performed on piano rather than guitar is a particular treasure for Neil fans (the full band version appears on Young’s 1969 second solo album Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere).

                  The album, which features Young performing on acoustic guitar and piano, includes tracks that are interesting for several reasons, such as stunning live versions of songs that appeared on After The Gold Rush (“Tell Me Why,” “Only Love Can Break Your Heart,” “Birds,” “Don’t Let It Bring You Down” and the title track) and solo performances of the Buffalo Springfield songs “Expecting To Fly” (from their 1967 second album Buffalo Springfield Again), “I Am A Child” (from their third and final album Last Time Around and Young’s 1977 Decade compilation), and “Flying On The Ground Is Wrong,” from their 1966 self-titled debut.

                  In addition, Live At The Cellar Door features early, raw performances of songs that wouldn’t appear until subsequent Young albums, including the rarity “Bad Fog Of Loneliness” (which appears on Live At Massey Hall ’71 – released in 2007-- but was previously unreleased until the studio band version was included on Archives Vol. 1 1963-1972) and “Old Man” (released two years later on 1972’s Harvest album). “Down By The River,” also from Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere, rounds out the spectacular set.

                  Live At The Cellar Door was recorded by Henry Lewy and produced by Young.

                    Foals

                    Holy Fire

                    With two top 10 albums already under their belt, Oxford five-piece Foals return with their third and most exhilarating album yet.

                    ‘Holy Fire’ has been recorded by prestigious production duo Flood & Moulder at Assault and Battery studios in London. Their previous work includes Smashing Pumpkins, PJ Harvey, Nine Inch Nails, and The Killers.

                    The first track to be showcased is ‘Inhaler’ - an electrifying, shamanistic tune set to purge the soul and raise the dead. Heavier than anything Foals have written before it nevertheless shines with their inimitable groove and funk.

                    Foals were nominated for a Mercury nomination with ‘Total Life Forever’. At the 2011 NME awards in they won ‘Best Single’ for ‘Spanish Sahara’ and were nominated for four other awards. They were also nominated for ‘Best Song’ for ‘Spanish Sahara’ at the 2011 Ivor Novello awards.

                    "Far" continues to reveal new layers in Spektor's songwriting as she pursues the next level in her inimitable musical style. With her uninhibited imagination and her hands on approach in the studio, "Far" not only succeeds with thirteen impressive and accessible tracks, but it spotlights Spektor's remarkable gift to craft intelligent and refreshingly honest odes to life. Four exceptional producers collaborated with Spektor on this album: Jeff Lynne (ELO, The Traveling Wilburys), Mike Elizondo (Dr Dre, Eminem), David Kahne (Paul McCartney, The Strokes) and Jacknife Lee (Weezer, REM).

                    The Subways

                    All Or Nothing

                      Recorded in Los Angeles, the twelve-track "All Or Nothing" marks a tremendous progression for the band since the "Young For Eternity" debut. Freshly inspired by bands including Death Cab For Cutie and Refused, the result is an album that recalls the exuberance of "Young For Eternity" while embarking upon an adventurous sonic progression. The vehement opening riff of single "Girls And Boys" is a bold reintroduction to the band and is followed by the dynamic "Kalifornia" that contrasts the band's most vitriolic moment to date with an infectious, summery hook. Other highlights of "All Or Nothing" include the breezy, retro-pop of the title-track, the raw power of live favourite "Shake Shake" and the sun-kissed vocal harmonies of "Alright".

                      The Enemy

                      We'll Live And Die In These Towns

                        Coventry's The Enemy round of an amazing year for them with the release of the title track of their debut album "We'll Live And Die In These Towns".

                        Echo And The Bunnymen

                        Crystal Days 1979-1999

                          A wealth of classic tracks on this superb 4CD set from one of the greatest Indie bands of the late 70's and 1980's. Echo and the Bunnymen's vision and originality shine through on tracks like "Rescue", "Over the Wall" and "A Promise". The set includes 17 rare B-sides and live tracks (many appearing on CD for the first time), an absorbing colour booklet and remastered original recordings. The sort of retrospective a band of this quality deserves.

                          Gilberto Gil

                          As Cancoes De Eu,Tu,Eles (Music From The Motion Picture "Me You Them")

                            Gilberto Gil with the lush sounds of modern Brazil as featured in the new film "Me, You, Them".
