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.


David says: You don't own this record already?! Prince's self titled second album is a masterpiece that sounds like it could have been released yesterday and proves conclusively that time travel is possible...




    Picture disc of ‘Reapers’ (album version and live in Koln). Includes a fold-your-own paper drone.

    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’.

    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.

    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.

      Prince & 3rdeyegirl


      With his secret gigs creating enough excitement to power the National Grid for a few years, Prince now keeps the buzz in full flow by hitting us with not one, but two whole new studio albums. While album one, ‘Art Official Age’ harks back to Prince at his pop-funk / soul best, ‘Plectrumelectrum’ puts the funk back into rock music. Backed by his hand-picked all female band 3rdeyegirl (Donna Grantis, guitar, Hannah Ford Welton, drums, and Ida Nielsen on bass)., ‘Plectrumelectrum’ is packed with stadium friendly guitar riffs alongside the hooky choruses. This is a classic band record, recorded live and in analogue the album is an electrifying funk-rock statement, harking back to the days of Jimi Hendrix.

            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.

                  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.

                  For "Collapse Into Now", R.E.M. re-teamed with Grammy Award-winning producer Jacknife Lee, who produced the band’s acclaimed previous album Accelerate. Lee is also noted for his work on albums by U2, Snow Patrol, The Hives, and indie stalwarts Kasabian, Editors, Aqualung, and Bloc Party. R.E.M. and Lee recorded the album in New Orleans at the Music Shed and in Berlin at the famed Hansa Studios, where several legendary albums, including David Bowie’s Heroes, U2’s Achtung Baby, and Iggy Pop’s Lust for Life, were made. Additional recording and mixing was done at the venerable Blackbird Studio in Nashville.

                  "Collapse Into Now" also features some very special guests: Patti Smith, guitarist Lenny Kaye, Peaches, Eddie Vedder & The Hidden Cameras frontman Joel Gibb.

                  Andy says: There's no way this was going to surprise anyone with its sound, but what can they do? This is actually a pretty smart record with some great songs on it too.

                  2008 saw the Oxford quintet rise to prominence with their debut album "Antidotes" entering the UK charts at number three. From these early days playing house parties, to selling-out incendiary tours across the UK and the world, stand-out TV performances, and exhilarating festival appearances, they set the stage perfectly for their much-anticipated sophomore effort "Total Life Forever", including the single "This Orient".

                  "Embryonic" is the latest instalment in The Flaming Lips strange and compelling journey. Recorded in New York and Oklahoma City between February and July of this year, it features eighteen new songs. The sound is immediately recognisable as The Flaming Lips, but once more they push the boundaries of sound into uncharted new territory. The album was produced by The Flaming Lips - Wayne Coyne, Stephen Drozd, Michael Ivins and Kliph Scurlock - with Dave Fridmann (Mercury Rev) and Scott Booker. It also features a number of special guest appearances: The Yeah Yeah Yeahs' Karen O provides additional singing, screaming, animal sounds and noises on "Gemini Syringes", "I Can Be A Frog" and "Watching The Planets", MGMT contribute additional playing and singing to "Worm Mountain" and German mathematician, Thorsten Wörmann is responsible for additional spoken announcements.

                  "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).

                  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 Definitive ...

                  I was a little bit dubious about this one. What would the demos and rare tracks sound like? Would they be good sound quality? Would there be much Neil Young material we hadn't heard before? Well let me tell you it sounds fantastic, the demos are superb, the booklet's great and there's oodles of new Neil Young and Steve Stills stuff that is simply spiffing. If you only buy one boxed set this year (2001) this seminal West Coast band's 4xCD 88 song set deluxe package could be the one for you.
