Out on dBpm Records, Love Is The King, a “beautifully honest ode to love and hope,” is the follow-up to 2018’s WARM and 2019’s WARMER, and comes on the heels of Tweedy’s second book, How To Write One Song, out October 13th via Penguin Random House's Dutton. “At the beginning of the lockdown I started writing country songs to console myself. Folk and country type forms being the shapes that come most easily to me in a comforting way. 'Guess Again' is a good example of the success I was having at pushing the world away, counting my blessings — taking stock in my good fortune to have love in my life,” comments Tweedy. “A few weeks later things began to sound like 'Love Is The King' — a little more frayed around the edges with a lot more fear creeping in. Still hopeful but definitely discovering the limits of my own ability to self soothe." –Jeff Tweedy

Mike Rosenberg, better known as Passenger, is a multi-award winning, platinum-selling singer-songwriter from Brighton, England. Although still known for his busking, he long ago made the journey from street corners to stadiums – most notably with 'Let Her Go', which reached number 1 in 19 countries and which has now notched more than two billion plays on YouTube. For his latest album "Songs For The Drunk and Broken Hearted" Rosenberg explains, “I chose the album title because a lot of the songs are about drinking and the emotions felt around it” he explains. There are personal references Rosenberg adds, “I’ve recently gone through a break-up, which is always a rough time but can actually be very inspiring too. I spent a few months going out and drinking too much which was fun and heartbreaking and awful all at once. Some of the material is personal and some of it is about other people, either people I’ve met or fictional characters. That’s always been a Passenger thing: sad stories about people drenched in disappointment with that sense of what could have been.”

Digitally remixed and remastered. Nominated for the 2010 Mercury Music Prize. Reflecting the urgency and claustrophobia of city life, the record dispensed with the acoustic, folky and pastoral influences of Weller's recent work and introduced more jagged rock styles with angry, urban and metallic influences - Diamond Dogs, Low-period Bowie riffs. Very experimental, mostly short songs but with a sense of adventure - often packing a suite's worth of twists into one song. Jam fans will love the tightly wound collaboration with Bruce Foxton on 'Fast Car/Slow Traffic', the dense dangerous heartbeat and militaristic sound collage of '7&3 Is the Strikers Name' (featuring My Bloody Valentine's Kevin Shields).

After two UK#1albums,2 millionalbum sales and an array of international acclaim, you might’ve thought you knew what to expect fromRoyal Blood. Those preconceptions were shattered when they released‘Trouble’s Coming’last summer. Hitting a melting pot of fiery rock riffs and danceable beats, they delivered something fresh, unexpected and yet entirely in tune with what they’d forged their reputation with.
WhenMike KerrandBen Thatchersat down to talk about making a new album, they knew what they wanted to achieve. It involved a conscious return to their roots, back when they had made music that was influenced byDaft Punk,Justice, andPhilippeZdarofCassius. It also called for a similar back-to-basics approach to what had made their self-titled debut album so thrilling, visceral and original.
“We sort of stumbled on this sound, and it was immediately fun to play,”recallsKerr.“That’s what sparked the creativity on the new album, the chasing of that feeling. It’s weird, though - if you think back to ‘Figure it Out’, it kind of contains the embryo of this album. We realised that we didn’t have to completely destroy what we’d created so far; we just had to shift it, change it. On paper, it’s a small reinvention. But when you hear it, it sounds so fresh.”
Those traits pulsate throughout the new single and title track.Kerr’sspiralling bass riff casts an hypnotic allure as it grows in intensity, while his vocals switch at will between a raw rock roar and a soulful falsetto. It’s underpinned byThatcher’sthundering beats, his taut rhythms infused with groove-laden hi-hats.
After setting the tone with‘Trouble’s Coming’, the album opens in breathless, take-no-prisoners style with the fierce metallic grooves of‘Who Needs Friends’hitting an early visceral peak.Royal Bloodfurther reference their fresh array of influences by deploying vocodered vocals on‘Million & One’before dynamically switching between the biggest contrasts of their sound with‘Limbo’. Already a fan favourite having been a regular during the duo’s2019shows,‘Boilermaker’lives up to its reputation and is more than matched by‘Mad Visions’, which evokes a hyper-aggressivePrince. It ends with a final surprise in the shape of the stark piano ballad‘All We Have Is Now’, a vulnerable and revealing reminder to live in the moment.
This new approach manifested itself in the duo’s decision to produce the majority of ‘Typhoons’themselves.‘Boilermaker’was produced byQueens of the Stone AgefrontmanJosh Homme, the two bands having first connected whenRoyal Bloodsupported them on a hugeNorth Americantour. Meanwhile, the multipleGrammy AwardwinnerPaul Epworthproduced‘Who Needs Friends’and contributed additional production to‘Trouble’s Coming’.
Throughout their first chapter, Del Amitri mastered the art of timeless, melodically focused pop-rock. Their hits - including ‘Nothing Ever Happens’, ‘Always The Last To Know’ and ‘Roll To Me’ - became international radio staples, propelling a career that accomplished five UK Top 10 albums and 6 million sales. Now Del Amitri are set to return with the release of their seventh studio album and first since 2002, ‘Fatal Mistakes’, on April 30th via Cooking Vinyl.
Legendary drummer, Mick Fleetwood enlisted an all-star cast for a one-of-a-kind concert honouring the early years of Fleetwood Mac and its founder, Peter Green which was held on 25th February 2020 at the London, Palladium.
The bill included Billy Gibbons, David Gilmour, Pete Townshend, John Mayall, Christine McVie, Zak Starkey, Steven Tyler, Bill Wyman, Noel Gallagher, Pete Townshend, Neil Finn, Kirk Hammett and Jeremy Spencer. Legendary producer Glyn Johns joined as the executive sound producer and the house band featured Fleetwood himself along with Andy Fairweather Low, Dave Bronze, Rick Vito, Jonny Lang and Ricky Peterson.
Fleetwood, who curated the list of artists performing, said: “The concert is a celebration of those early blues days where we all began, and it’s important to recognize the profound impact Peter and the early Fleetwood Mac had on the world of music. Peter was my greatest mentor and it gives me such joy to pay tribute to his incredible talent. I am honoured to be sharing the stage with some of the many artists Peter has inspired over the years and who share my great respect for this remarkable musician. ‘Then Play On’...”
Blood From the Soul is the vision of legendary musician Shane Embury, longtime member of extreme pioneers Napalm Death. In the early 90's Embury partnered with Lou Koller (Sick Of It All) to create the Blood From The Soul debut "To Spite the Hand That Bleeds" (Earache, 1993). The album was an experimental fusion of industrial, metal, hardcore, and punk. And along with Godflesh, Pitch Shifter, Meathook Seed, and Scorn, they helped spawn a new wave of industrial-metal. Fast forward to 2020 and Blood From the Soul has awakened from hyper-sleep. Joining Embury on this new creative journey are now Dirk Verbeuren (Megadeth, Soilwork, Aborted, Tronos), Jacob Bannon (Converge, Wear Your Wounds, Umbra Vitae), and Jesper Liveröd (Nasum, Burst). "DSM-5" is a twelve song conceptual album from Blood From the Soul. Lyrically the album is written from the perspectives of human beings as well as sentient machines. Metaphorically it explores the relationship between consciousness and physical/psychological deterioration amid a multitude of stresses. Reading as both dystopian science fiction as well as poignant editorial on the turbulent present and our uncertain future.
A unique new album of poetry and music featuring Marianne Faithfull, set to the music of Warren Ellis, and featuring Nick Cave, Brian Eno and Vincent Ségal.
Marianne Faithfull releases one of the most distinctive albums of her extraordinary life and career with composer and multi-instrumentalist Warren Ellis. It was recorded just before and during the first Covid-19 lockdown – during which the singer herself became infected and almost died. Together with musical friends and family, She Walks in Beauty fulfils Faithfull’s long-held ambition to record an album of poetry with music.
Delving deep into her past, it’s a record that draws on her passion for the English Romantic poets, a passion she fostered at St Joseph's Convent School before leaving for London at the age of 16. There she entered the world of As Tears Go By, of Mick Jagger and the Rolling Stones, setting her on a left-hand path to pop stardom. Sixties iconography and outrage followed, as did her subsequent battles with addiction before her 1979 return to powerful female and artistic autonomy with Broken English.
Even if we weren’t living through extraordinarily troubling times, there is nothing quite like a Teenage Fanclub album to assuage the mind, body and soul, and to reaffirm that all is not lost in this world.
Endless Arcade follows the band’s ninth album Here, released in 2016. It's quintessential TFC: melodies are equal parts heartwarming and heartaching; guitars chime and distort; keyboard lines mesh and spiral; harmony-coated choruses burst out like sun on a stormy day.
In the 1990s, the band crafted a magnetically heavy yet harmony-rich sound on classic albums such as Bandwagonesque and Grand Prix. This century, albums such as Shadows and Here have documented a more relaxed, less ‘teenage’ Fanclub, reflecting the band’s stage in life and state of mind, which Endless Arcade slots perfectly alongside. The album walks a beautifully poised line between melancholic and uplifting, infused with simple truths. The importance of home, community and hope is entwined with more bittersweet, sometimes darker thoughts - insecurity, anxiety, loss.
The Daisies have started the next chapter welcoming new band member Glenn Hughes. Also known as "The Voice Of Rock", Glenn has taken over lead vocals and bass guitar, joining guitarists Doug Aldrich, David Lowy and drummer Deen Castronovo. With the addition of Glenn Hughes, The Daisies supercharge their front line through his rock solid bass grooves and unmatched vocal intensity. As all fans know, the man is a true original, inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame, with a rich history of music that features heavy weights like Deep Purple and Black Country Communion as well as a successful solo career. One might say: "They don't build rockers like him anymore". Followers can expect more High-Voltage Rock songs, indomitable grooves and spellbinding lyrics, all the ingredients that have made this music so timeless, out-living trends of the modern day. The sound of The Dead Daisies is entrenched in the Hard Rock way of life we all love but as a living, breathing rock band, they are constantly evolving & bringing new dynamics to a classic style.
POST HUMAN: SURVIVAL HORROR is the newest release from world dominating, multi-award nominated Bring Me The Horizon.

Belfast-born, London-based duo Bicep (Matt McBriar and Andy Ferguson) release their hotly anticipated second album, 'Isles', on 22 January 2021 via Ninja Tune. Two years in the making, 'Isles' expands on the artful energy of their 2018 debut 'Bicep', while digging deeper into the sounds, experiences and emotions that have influenced their lives and work, from early days in Belfast to their move to London a decade ago. 'We have strong mixed emotions, connected to growing up on an island' they say, 'wanting to leave, wanting to return'. 'Isles' is, in part, a meditation on these contradictions, the struggle between the expansive and the introspective, isolation and euphoria. Lead single 'Apricots' has a similar feel, steeped in a shimmering bath of warm synths, its spare percussion and arresting vocals bring the big room chills of 90s rave, while still evoking something lost or forlorn.

Styles We Paid For is Guided by Voices' third album of 2020 and it stands as a testament to this Year In Isolation, reflecting these dark days through Robert Pollard's prism, with the band sounding as confident and authoritative as ever. The fifteen tracks were recorded remotely during quarantine from five states (Ohio, New York, New Jersey, Virginia, Tennessee) to comprise GBV's ninth album since 2017.Pollard's searing vocals hold center stage, with endless melodic invention and impeccable phrasing. The massively crescendo-ing opening track "Megaphone Riley" seems to be inspired by a diabolical politician-in-chief, and like an indie-rock Nostradamus, presciently highlights the "Jumbo Virus", while in the final couplet of the album closer "When Growing Was Simple" Pollard urges "Don't drink and drive / stay at home and eat". Other album highlights include include Big Rock standouts like the incredibly hooky "Mr. Child" with the band in full arena rock power swing, while the titular protagonist is mentioned by name no less than sixteen times; the touching beauty and lyrical relevance of "Stops" and the majestically elegant "In Calculus Stratagem", a bubbly pop rock joyride in "Crash at Lake Placebo"; the subtle current-day technological observations of "They Don't Play The Drums Anymore" and the sleek "Electronic Windows To Nowhere" (written by a man who owns neither a smart phone or a computer). It's notably heavy in it's worldliness, lyrical content, texture, and approach-and rides out like a cinematic journey of the bizarro world one find oneself in.While other bands have been napping, GBV have achieved their second consecutive hat-trick (three albums per annum), and have further cemented their status as rock legends for achieving more in this bleak year then most bands do across their entire careers.
'Film Music 1976 - 2020' - This long-awaited album brings together 17 tracks from Eno's most recognisable film and television work spanning 5 decades. Eno's music has been used in hundreds of films and he has composed more than 20 soundtracks for some of the best known directors in the world including David Lynch, Danny Boyle, Peter Jackson, Michelangelo Antonioni, Derek Jarman and Michael Mann. Compositions such as "Ship in a Bottle" in "The Lovely Bones", "Prophecy Theme" from "Dune", "Deep Blue Day" in "Trainspotting", "Late Evening in Jersey" in "Heat", "Beach Sequence" in Antonioni's last film "Beyond The Clouds" and "An Ending (Ascent)" from Al Reinert's ground-breaking "For All Mankind" have contributed significantly to memorably iconic scenes. Eno has also scored extensively for television, including all 3 series of the gritty UK crime drama, "Top Boy" for which he received a Bafta, and Danny Boyle's "Mr Wroe's Virgins" which earned him and his brother Roger a Bafta nomination. This release features over an hour of classic Eno compositions and includes several previously unreleased tracks.
Limited colored 180gm vinyl LP pressing. Critically acclaimed Nashville-based alt-rock band Moon Taxi returns with their sixth full-length album, Silver Dream. Moon Taxi set the stage for Silver Dream with the radio hit "Hometown Heroes" which was heralded by Uproxx as "an alt-rock track that sounds like it was made for the radio." On fellow single "One Step Away," dusty guitar rings out over a steady beat and luminous keys as a chantable chorus sails over an unshakable groove. "One Step Away" arrived on the heels of the inspiring track "Light Up" which Alternative Press called "the uplifting track everyone needs to hear right now."
Vinyl LP pressing. Love & Peace sees Seasick Steve mixing up all of his much-loved ingredients to deliver a fresh new record that offers the perfect antidote for the troubled times in which we live. Full of hope for the future, it's a great mix of boogie, blues, rock, Americana and folk - all delivered in Steve's unique style. It's a sizzler of an album that he can't wait to release. "In these crazy times seems to me there just ain't enough love and peace to go around," says Steve. "I ain't exactly sure what this here record got to do with love and peace, but I figured I'd call it that anyways!"
Vinyl LP pressing. Under A Mediterranean Sky is the first new acoustic solo album from legendary guitarist Steve Hackett, since 2008's 'Tribute' - a record that saw him tackling some of the beautiful classical pieces that his guitar idols had also put their hand to. This new album however takes inspiration from Steve's extensive travels around the Mediterranean. "A lot of acoustic ideas had been forming over the years, and it felt like the perfect time to create this album," notes Hackett, "a time to contemplate the places we've visited around the Mediterranean with the kind of music which evolved from the world of imagination." 'Under The Mediterranean Sky' lacks nothing of the grandiosity of Steve Hackett's recent solo electric records, however it does give room to the stunning breadth of approach that he has to playing his acoustic guitar, reminding us once again why Steve is such a revered and respected musician.

All instruments and vocals by Jason Bieler.
