"A heartfelt, Ramones-style cover of the Tom Waits gem, taken to another level by a contribution from the Mariachi El Bronx horn section."

Hier kann man CJ Ramone dieses Jahr live erleben:

15.05.2017: Berlin - Bi Nuu
16.06.2017: Merkers - Rock Am Berg
17.06.2017: Nordenham - Fonsstock Festival

Weitere erste Infos lesen sich wie folgt:

American Beauty is CJ Ramone’s third solo album and was recorded with the stellar backing band of Steve Soto (Adolescents), Dan Root (Adolescents), and Pete Sosa (Street Dogs). Out March 17th, the 12-song effort crackles with the spirit of ’76 and a sound and style true to the Ramones. CJ and his band have been on the road a lot since we released his last album, Last Chance to Dance, in 2014. Playing shows with the new generation of bands hasn’t been lost on CJ. He lent backing vocals to a track on the last Night Birds album, and now, on his own record, gets contributions from Big Eyes frontwoman Kate Eldridge and the horn section of Mariachi El Bronx! We’ll be premiering a brand new song shortly, so stay tuned!

And now, a word from the man himself, CJ Ramone:

"American Beauty is the record I’ve been working towards since I started putting out records as CJ Ramone. My songwriting has definitely grown up some, but the raw energy is still there. Steve Soto, Dan Root, and Pete Sosa helped me drive every track home in a way that only veterans of the business can do, with engineer/co-producer Paul Miner throwing gas on the fire every step of the way. I don’t think I could have made this record any better. 2017 is set to be my busiest year yet, starting with a coast to coast US/Canada tour, followed up by an extended trip to Europe this summer. Fall and Winter we’ll be spending in South America and we are working on a trip to Japan and, fingers crossed, Australia. It’s going to be a good year. Hope to see y’all on the big road."

Tracklist:
1:Let’s Go
2:Yeah Yeah Yeah
3:You’ll Never Make Me Believe
4:Before the Lights Go Out
5:Girlfriend in a Graveyard
6:Tommy’s Gone
7:Run Around
8:Steady As She Goes
9:Without You
10:Be a Good Girl
11:Moral to the Story
12:Pony

GIRLPOOL - "123" Video / Album im Mai auf ANTI- Records!

Today, Girlpool have announced that they've signed to Anti- Records and released a video for "123," (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8uAhIt1UFCY) the lead single from Powerplant, the long-awaited follow-up to the band's critically acclaimed debut. The FADER, who recently featured Girlpool on their magazine cover, are calling the video "weirdly lovable clip” Powerplant is available for pre-order now (https://lnk.to/girlpoolpowerplant) and due out via ANTI- Records on May 12th.

"Raw, minimal, yet emotionally fierce... loaded with moments of offhand intimacy and caustic wit." - Rolling Stone

"Brims with a mysterious power, a charged and palpable sense of hope and awe." - Pitchfork

"When Harmony Tividad and Cleo Tucker harmonize, it's like a lightning bolt to the gut." - NPR

"It almost doesn't matter what they're singing about. The sound of their voices together contains it all." - NY Times
 
"Equal parts radical and sentimental... bristles with the crackling, wistful energy of change and approaching adulthood." - LA Times
 
ABOUT GIRLPOOL:
 
Life has been a whirl for Girlpool since the release of their acclaimed 2015 debut Before the World Was Big. Shortly before the record came out, Harmony Tividad and Cleo Tucker relocated from their hometown of Los Angeles all the way across the country to Philadelphia, where they quickly became embedded in the local D.I.Y. scene. "Before BTWWB, I was just out of high school, living in my old neighborhood," recalls Cleo Tucker. "Then we started touring in a way we'd never done before. I really started to experience the duality that was beginning to exist in my life: tour/not on tour." After a chaotic and informative year spent floating around the East Coast, both bandmates moved home to California at the start of 2017. Girlpool have been seemingly everywhere at once, exploring all the world's offerings with open minds and notebooks. All the lessons they learned, about the earth and about themselves, are gathered together in their sophomore record and ANTI- debut, Powerplant.
 
Over 10 days in August 2016, Girlpool holed up at Los Angeles' Comp-ny studios to record and mix Powerplant with Drew Fischer. For the first time, Harmony and Cleo were joined by a third performer, drummer Miles Wintner, a friend who easily meshed with the tightknit duo. The decision to add percussion came as a natural decision for Harmony and Cleo; "Cleo and I just were driving down the New Jersey turnpike when she mentioned that it might be exciting to expand our sound for the new songs," says Harmony. "The songs we were writing had the potential of getting really climactic," adds Cleo. "I think percussion adds a new part of the musical dynamic that we want to explore."Girlpool's eagerness to evolve should come as no surprise; in the same way that there were little traces of their self-titled EP on BTWWB, on Powerplant, the pair shed their old skins with more eagerness than before. "In some ways I feel more courageous and mature and in other ways I feel smaller and softer, sometimes even more fragile than ever," says Harmony, adding that while the inner self is always changing, ultimately the end is a closer self-truth.
 
The 12 tracks that compose Powerplant grow and burn with greater fire than the duo have possessed heretofore. Both bandmates were heavily inspired by Elliott Smith, the Cranberries, the Cocteau Twins, Brian Eno, Arthur Russell, and Graham Nash; the influence of each appear in the record's deliberate and intricate guitar work ("Fast Dust," "She Goes By") as well as its embrace of dissonant noise ("Corner Store," "Soup"). Though they were living apart for most of the writing process, the pair still managed to write all but four songs together, another testament to their dedication to Girlpool and each other. Now 21 and 20, Harmony and Cleo confront projections, despondency, apathy, romanticization, love, and heartbreak with a more devastating emotional pragmatism than before. "Looking pretty at the wall is my mistake in love installed/While the moth doesn't talk but in the dress the holes you saw," they sing on opener "123," perfectly refracting the truth. More humorous (but still heavily symbolic) lines are delivered with equal poignancy, like Harmony's disclaimer on "It Gets More Blue," "The nihilist tells you that nothing is true/I said I faked global warming just to get close to you."
 
Both bandmates believe that radical vulnerability and honesty are essential to discovering oneself. "I see vulnerable softness as a place where the honest self can come forward," Cleo explains, saying that on Powerplant, Girlpool aimed for sincere expression. "As a society I feel that we perceive softness and vulnerability as traits that are 'weak,' and people emotionally disconnect themselves in order to avoid going through everything they feel," Harmony adds. "I think what is most important right now is empathy, and in order to have empathy we must first feel what we, ourselves, feel." Perhaps what really makes Powerplant a home run is that Girlpool understand exactly how to use their incisive lyrics, soft textures, hushed harmonies, and soaring hooks for maximum emotional impact. In these moments, when Harmony and Cleo's voices join together to deliver transcendent transmissions straight from their hearts, Girlpool become a league of their own.

The band will be playing a few showcases at this year’s SXSW Festival in Austin, US in March. The exact details will be announced soon.

THE HIDDEN CAMERAS - "Counting Stars": Neues Musikvideo

Das Kollektiv THE HIDDEN CAMERAS um Joel Gibb veröffentlicht ein neues Live-Video zum Song "Counting Stars" vom aktuellen Album "Home On Native Land" (Outside Music / Yep Roc / H'Art): https://youtu.be/tbNyG6dgXWk

“Counting Stars” was recorded live at Toronto's historic Massey Hall on August 4, 2016, when The Hidden Cameras shared a double bill with electronic musician and performance artist Peaches.  Shot in black and white the video captures the high energy and playfulness of a Hidden Cameras performance with the band clad in bolo ties, cowboy boosts and Gibb's trademark Elvis inspired shiny suit.

Joining Gibb at his Massey Hall show was a new nine piece configuration including a 13 year-old banjo player, pedal steel, piano and back-up singers. The Independent in their 4-star review  called “Counting Stars a “joyous, gospel affirmation of sexual singularity that’s gay in all senses of the word.”

Home On Native Land is an inquisitive ode to Gibb’s homeland; it’s a stealthy return to Canadian soil both philosophically and physically. The album was written and recored over ten years by Gibb with friends, bandmates and icons including Rufus Wainwright, Feist, Neil Tennant, Bahamas, Ron Sexsmith and Mary Margaret O’Hara. Home On Native Land makes new offers to the Canadiana genre with infectious melodies and wild hymns, overarched by Gibbs’ honeyed vocals oozing with hopefulness, joy and sorrow.

OVERCOATS ANNOUNCE DEBUT ALBUM ‘YOUNG,’ PRODUCED BY NICOLAS VERNHES AND AUTRE NE VEUT, OUT APRIL 21 ON ARTS & CRAFTS
 
On April 21, Arts & Crafts will release ‘YOUNG,’ the debut album from New York-based duo Overcoats.  Co-produced by Nicolas Vernhes (The War On Drugs, Dirty Projectors) and Autre Ne Veut, ‘YOUNG’ is a story about growing up told through the lens of two women who are wise beyond their years.
 
Overcoats is comprised of former college roommates Hana Elion and JJ Mitchell, who co-wrote all twelve songs on ‘YOUNG.’ The two were drawn to each other when they first met as teenagers in 2011, finding connection in a love of diverse musical styles, and forging a closeness that verges on sisterhood. Both members of Overcoats describe the first time hearing each other sing as an epiphany: the harmony of their voices leading to personal, individual discovery.
 
‘YOUNG’ weaves a tapestry of crystalline vocals with soaring synths and rich bass lines. From the subdued introspection of “Kai’s Song” to the thumping two-step and club-ready brass of “Leave The Light On”, ‘YOUNG’ showcases a striking range for the duo. While their seamless vocal interplay and contemplative lyrics remain at the core of their sound, ‘YOUNG’ is also rich with experimentation and sonic surprises.
This spring, Overcoats will play select dates opening for Tennis before heading out on a headlining tour later this year. Full itinerary below.

2.    Smaller Than My Mother

Einen Einblick in ihre fantastische Live Show  gibt es im folgenden Tour-Trailer zu sehen: (LINK EINSETZEN)


Weitere Infos lesen sich wie folgt:

Parkway Drive have announced a 2017 Unbreakable European/UK Tour with special guests Asking Alexandria. Unbreakable Tour will be taking place in March and April  and will include big club shows, such as O2 Brixton Academy in London (UK), as well as headlining European festivals.

Parkway Drive have recently released a deluxe version of their 2015 album IRE, which features two brand new tracks “Devil’s Calling” and “Into the Dark”, plus a remix of “A Deathless Song (featuring Jenna McDougall).”

IRE has been certified gold in Australia and it is clear why. The Australian powerhouse tapped deep into its reserves of talent and creativity, and have taken their craft as musicians and songwriters to another level. IRE is clearly something brave and new as heard in the band's new found musical depth and urgency in front man Winston McCall’s vocal deliverance. They are a band that will continue to challenge themselves; and in doing so they will again redefine what has been thought possible for a metal band from Australia to achieve.

 Ire was a great success in Europe as well. It had entered the official German Albums Chart at number 8, Belgium at number 16, United Kingdom at 23, Sweden at 60 andThe Netherlands at number 75, making it the band’s highest charting album in Europe, and biggest first week sales to date.

The 5-piece metal band from Byron Bay, Australia formed in 2002. Parkway Drive has released four studio albums all on Epitaph: Killing with a Smile (2005), Horizons(2007), Deep Blue (2010), Atlas (2012), and IRE (2015) – all certified gold in Australia. Always hungry, always filled with ambition, Parkway Drive is embraced by heavy music enthusiasts in places as diverse as China and India, as chronicled on their platinum-selling DVD, Home is for the Heartless. Also certified platinum in Australia isParkway Drive: The DVD, released in 2009. When the band is not busy touring the world they spend their free time surfing international waters and now, skydiving.

Critical Praise for IRE

“best songs of band’s career” –Metal Hammer UK (8/10)
“fascinating (..) “Ire is Parkway Drive’s most interesting document to date” – Kerrang (4/5)
“the final consolidation in world-class level for Parkway Drive!“ Metal Hammer Germany (7/7)
“hugely complex masterpiece” – Rock Hard, DE (9/10)
“thrilling and exciting..” – FUZE, DE
"Parkway Drive is the future of Heavy Music" Metal Obs, FR (4.5/5)
“it does not get better than this.” - Close Up, SE (8/10)

SEAN ROWE - Neues Video / Live in Hamburg + Berlin / Album am 07.04.17!

Der gefeierte Singer/Songwriter SEAN ROWE wird am 07. April 2017 sein neues Album "New Lore" auf ANTI- veröffentlichen!

Das unterhaltsame Video zu dem Song “Newton´s Cradle“ steht ab sofort online:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0aVg7MpP3qY&feature=youtu.be

Das Video zum Album-Opener “Gas Station Rose“ ist hier zu sehen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QEm3R3IT2ww

Live wird Sean Rowe sein neues Album im Mai in folgenden Städten:

30.05.17 - Hamburg (DE) - Mojo Jazz Club
31.05.17  - Berlin (DE) -  Monarch

SEAN ROWE kommentiert den Song / das Video folgendermaßen:

"When I was writing the lyrics of the song I kept thinking about the Newton's cradle--you know, that toy that you set off and it reacts back and forth.  And it reminded me of a relationship, of fighting, of that feeling when you just keep setting each other off, making each other crazy and all you want to do is walk away. When we shot the video I wanted to show that feeling you feel in an argument like the whole world is coming down around you and you feel like you're losing your mind a bit.  We had a lot of fun with the masks and props and the different settings.  I wanted to do something different, and we nailed that.”  

New Lore’s simple yet powerful sound focuses on Rowe’s renowned baritone and evocative songwriting, delivering a collection of affecting stories of desperation and resilience.  His voice is beautifully augmented throughout by tasteful arrangements including flourishes of piano and a string section. The album was recorded in the city of Memphis at the historic Sam Phillips Recording studio and produced by Matt Ross-Spang who began working at the legendary studio when he was 16 and recently won a Grammy for his work with Jason Isbell.

Rowe says of the album, “This is a record about loneliness and a longing for connectedness. This yearning for a sense of home. Musically, I think this record is more focused than any before. I’ve become really aware about what it is that I do well, allowing my voice to come through and lyrically grabbing people with the stories.. Those are kind of my superpowers. The instruments on the record never intrude on my voice and words.”

It is a sound that echo’s Rowe’s recent crossover hit  “To Leave Something Behind” a song that resonated with a whole new wider audience after being featured in the recent  Ben Affleck film 'The Accountant.’

“His voice comes not from the lungs or the diaphragm but from deep in the soul and lights up the most primal regions of your brain” - American Songwriter

"Richtung Horizont" (Album Track) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=exPgNf7PSLo

Die Band erklärt: “Mit der ‘Phoenix Effekt‘ haben wir 2011 ein Album herausgebracht, das von vorn herein als Start einer Punkrock-Trilogie angelegt war. Daher war der Phoenix auch Bestandteil aller drei Cover, die allesamt von Matthias Bäuerle von Season Zero stammen. Das Album hatte das übergeordnete Thema ‘Zerbrechen/Neuanfang‘, quasi die Auferstehung des Phoenix. Mit ‘Nordost‘ folgte 2015 der zweite Teil, der ‘Aufbruch‘ und damit der Phoenix zu seiner Glanzzeit.“ 2017 findet die Trilogie nun mit “Choral vom Ende“ ihren Abschluss. “Auf dem kommenden Album geht es um ‘Niedergang/Ende‘, also das wieder zu Asche werden des Phoenix.“

Für die Produktion nahmen sich STAATSPUNKROTT 5 Wochen Zeit, um “Choral vom Ende“ den richtigen Schliff zu verleihen: “Wir haben wieder mit vielen Leuten zusammen gearbeitet, die schon an den beiden vorangegangenen Teilen der Trilogie beteiligt waren. Der instrumentale Teil entstand in den Hertzwerk/Nullzwei Studios in Hamburg zusammen mit Produzent Olman Viper. Für die Gesangsaufnahmen waren wir mit Sascha Höhm wieder in den Jadeturm Studios in Leipzig.“

“Black Terry Cat“ ist ein phänomenal abwechslungsreiches Album geworden, eines der spannendsten in diesem Jahr.“ - Tagesspiegel
“Ein tolles Soul, Funk, Indierock Album.“ - Musikexpress
“Die Musik ist roh, widerborstig und viszeral, aber eben auch sehr smart und stets einem Groove verpflichtet.“ -Spiegel.de

XENIA RUBINOS kehrt im Mai auf ihrer Europatour für 1 Konzert in Berlin nach Deutschland zurück. Im Gepäck hat sie ihr Album "Black Terry Cat", welches Anfang Juni vergangenen Jahres auf Epitaph Records / Indigo veröffentlicht wurde.
