ANDERSON .PAAK - "Am I Wrong" Live-Performance bei "Later... with Jools Holland"

Tour mit BRUNO MARS

14.05.2017 — München — Olympiahalle

ANDERSON .PAAK hat seine aktuelle Single "AM I Wrong" Live in der renommierten UK-Musik-Show " Later... with Jools Holland" performt.

Zu Anderson .Paak muss man inzwischen nicht mehr viel sagen. Er gilt als der momentane angesagteste Rap/R&B/Hip-Hop-Newcomer aus den Staaten. Große Aufmerksamkeit erreichte er durch sechs Features auf Dr. Dres “Compton“, mehr als alle andere Künstler neben ihm. Innerhalb eines Jahres hat er daraufhin mit seinem Album “Malibu“ eine steile Karriere hingelegt. Top Platzierung in den Jahresbestenlisten von The Guardian, Independent, NME und vielen mehr bezeugen das.

Auch seine Kollaborationen mit A-Klasse Künstlern wie Macklemore, Mac Miller, Chance The Rapper, usw. zeigen, dass er nun endlich im Musikolymp angekommen ist. Dass Bruno Mars in als Support für seine kommende Europetournee gebucht hat ist deswegen nur folgerichtig. Beyonce hat sich übrigens auch schon ihre Show von ihm eröffnen lassen.

ANDREW PALEY – Auf Tour und Tribute für Elliott Smith

Kur vor der anstehenden Tour mit Bob Nanna, legt der US Songwriter noch ein Schmankerl vor. Im Rahmen eines Tribut Samplers ( "A Brief Smile" 19.05) für Elliott Smith hat er den Song “Waltz #2“ adaptiert.

The compilation "A Brief Smile“ captures unreleased and exclusive cover versions of 20 different bands and acts from all over the world. It features artists like Smoking Popes, Elder Brother, Andrew Paley, Franz Nicolay, and Sundressed. A special moment is the track of former Elliott Smith-guitarist Goldenboy.

ARKTIS - "Enigma": Neues Video / Tourdaten

Bevor ARKTIS die nächsten Shows spielen werden, veröffentlichen sie ihr neues Video zu "Enigma", das von Mirko Witzki für mirko witzki graphics produziert wurde.

Der Song “Enigma“ stammt von “Meta“, dem aktuellen Debütalbum von ARKTIS.

ARKTIS live:
22.04.2017 - Rendsburg - Bullentempel
27.05.2017 - Mannheim - tba
10.06.2017 - Alfeld - ABRISS Festival
24.06.2017 - Stuttgart - Club Zentral
25.11.2017 - Essen - Café Nova

Musik mit Emotionen, technischer Raffinesse und deutschen Texten, die in einem weiten Spannungsfeld pendelt. Mit dem Vorboten “Gold“ aus ihrem Debütalbum “Meta“ sowie Shows mit Bands wie Annisokay oder Desasterkids hatten ARKTIS bereits eine erste Duftmarke in der nationalen Szene hinterlassen. Relativ schnell wollten die Hannoveraner jedoch über den eigenen Teller- und Genrerand hinausblicken und stellten sich die Frage, wie wohl ihre Version eines aktuellen Hits klingen würde. Kurzerhand nahmen sie eine Coverversion von Mark Forsters “Flash mich“ auf und produzierten ein Video dazu, das Mark Forster innerhalb weniger Stunden auf seinem Facebook-Profil teilte und das sich schnell außerhalb der zu erwartenden Kreise verbreitete.

Damit war der Grundstein für eine Idee gelegt, die ARKTIS zusammen mit Christoph Wieczorek von Annisokay in seinem Sawdust Recordings Studio in die Tat umsetzten. “Meta“ ist als 2CD erschienen: Neben einem kompletten Album mit Eigenkompositionen gibt es ein zusätzliches mit Coverversionen von zeitgenössischen Hits. Dabei herausgekommen ist nicht nur ein facettenreiches, modernes Album, sondern auch eine Momentaufnahme der aktuellen Musiklandschaft.

COLOR FILM – neues Signing auf Epitaph Records

DARYL PALUMBO AND RICHARD PENZONE ART POP DUO RELEASE DEBUT ALBUM ‘LIVING ARRANGEMENTS’ JUNE 16

Color Film Color Film is a New York-based art pop duo formed in 2012 by Daryl Palumbo and Richard Penzone. The musical project is a re-contextualization of their shared influences into a wholly new sonic amalgam. It's not a reinvention so much as it is a brave progression for this twosome whose collective musical resume includes a myriad of culture-driving projects that have created waves in the music scene. On June 16th Color Film will release their debut album Living Arrangements via Epitaph. Pre-orders are available at http://colorfilmmusic.com/

Listen to the new Color Film song "52 Minds" on SPOTIFY or YOU TUBE.

The story of Color Film began six years ago when Palumbo and Penzone "started playing around and we came up with a million weird ideas that both of us had and instantly started working on music that we wanted to record,” Palumbo explains. "The two of us probably share more interests than anyone else I've ever met in my life and there are all these wild, arty records that we both love so it only made sense for us to sit down and try to channel that into something new." What the duo did not expect was how quickly the music would flow out of them.
Palumbo and Penzone are the first to admit that the influences and music on Living Arrangements may be less straightforward than their previous projects. “There's the pop thing, a lot of synthesizer sounds, sampled instruments and smooth bass and I feel so lucky that we're in a place where we can write this type of music,” he continues. “The two of us will listen to some of these songs we wrote and get introspective and I'll admit it, it feels awesome.”

Color Film Living Arrangements Track List

1. We'd Kill Each Other - 1:31
2. Small Town - 3:31
3. Crawling in Circles - 5:00
4. Restless Summer - 3:46
5. I Need A Parasite - 2:54
6. Ambush Bug - 1:52
7. Bass In 7- 3:25
8. 52 Minds - 3:44
9. Even If It Did Exist - 4:09
10. Springtime Of Our Love - 4:11
11. Bad Saint - 3:40
12. Day After Day - 5:09

CHRISTOPHER PAUL STELLING – Neuer Song / Tourdaten

Acclaimed troubadour Christopher Paul Stelling has released a new track today entitled "Cost of Doing Business" from his forthcoming album Itinerant Arias, out on May 5th. With a steady drum beat, "The Cost of Doing Business" finds Stelling's melodic guitar picking augmented by splashes of strings and some backing vocals to create something that feels both observational and intensely personal.

“This song in particular has given me a lot to think about,” Stelling says. “I've rarely if ever thought of songs as statements, but more like questions posed to and from my own subconscious. Sorry if that sounds a little pretentious, but it's just the way it is. The song muses on the idea that there's not simply a monetary but also a physical toll when the business that one is involved in is their art, their creative life force, their soul. And of course it has to reference that Faustian myth, that took hold of the human psyche long before Robert Johnson took his guitar to the crossroads. It's always easy to imagine a future for yourself where everything is better and you're more provided for, but there is always a price. That's kind of where this song takes root. Even more universally relevant to all of our current state of affairs: Is it possible that not only individuals but entire nations can fall victim to a silver tongued devil who surrounds himself with golden adornments and promises a better future but inside is rotten to the core, corrupt, and willing to sell everyone down the river simply to further their own cruel and selfish interests?”

Unlike previous records, Itinerant Arias finds Stelling backed by a band, electrified if you will. It is a record inspired by movement and travel. The album cover a photograph taken by Stelling himself depicting an arrangement of found objects on his table. With a little more than a week before returning to the road, he retreated to a friend’s Connecticut cabin out in the woods with some musician friends. They slept there, ate there and didn’t leave for the next eight days, recording the haunting and powerful record.

Stelling is getting ready to hit the road again, doing what he has for years now, playing music, and moving, documenting the all struggles and victories of the world he passes through. The tour kicks off May 6 in Brussels. See the full routing below.

Tour Dates:

05/10 - Hamburg, Germany @ Nochtwache
05/11 - Berlin, Germany @Lidolino
05/12 - Aachen, Germany @ Langer Turm
05/13 - Witten, Germany @ Stellwerk (knuts)

Critical Acclaim for Winter Wheat

“Samson's songs feel lived-in in ways that register as universal.” – NPR

“The diversity of this album again proves that Samson is more than just another singer-songwriter. He is an author of musical short stories, and one of the best ones of our time.” – Visions (DE) - Album of the Week

"Perhaps more than any other Canadian musician, Samson, the former frontman for The Weakerthans, has been able to communicate what it means and feels like to live in a place defined by isolation." - Fader

“John K. Samson's name will occasionally come up in discussions about Canada's greatest lyricists alongside Gord Downie, Leonard Cohen and Joni Mitchell, and his second solo album, Winter Wheat, makes yet another strong case that he's not cited often enough.” - Exclaim

THE FLATLINERS - Neues Album "Inviting Light“ - Brandneu auf Rise Records / BMG / ADA Warner!

Album-Stream:

Vergangenen Freitag erschien das langerwartete fünfte Studio-Album der FLATLINERS “Inviting Light“ auf Rise Records. Frontmann Chris Cresswell kommentiert:

When we set out to make Inviting Light, we weren’t really sure where we were going to end up. Never before have we talked more about the songs we wanted to write before getting in a room and making something happen. More than ever before, we sought to challenge ourselves as a band and as songwriters to cook up something new between us, and reach new territory. When you spend your 20’s on tour traveling the world, you get to see how truly beautiful this planet is, and through a lens most don’t have access to. With that unique perspective and the ever moving ground beneath your feet, you wonder who you’ve been all these years, and also what the person you’ll turn out to be will be like. And though every day may not necessarily be a good one, it always feels good to get together and sing about it. Life will take its toll, and these wheels will keep spinning. To a decade lived dishonest, where at least the feeling’s real.”

ROBYN HITCHCOCK - neues Video zu "RAYMOND AND THE WIRES" aus dem am 21.04. erscheinenden, selbbetitelten Album “Robyn Hitchcock”

ON TOUR NOW ALONGSIDE THE PSYCHEDELIC FURS (only USA)

“ An inventive, erudite musical world.”
-Salon

“These days, Hitchcock remains a fearless solo practitioner, gray-haired but still lithe, a man who seems to defy time as he weaves his relentlessly remarkable narratives.”
-Paste

(New York, NY) Yep Roc recording artist Robyn Hitchcock continues to celebrate the April 21st release of his self-titled new album on Yep Roc, this time with the unveiling of his new video for the song “Raymond & The Wires. Getting its premiere via Salon over the weekend, the clip pulls together imagery from Hitchcock’s present and past as homage to his dad, the science fiction writer and cartoonist Raymond Hitchcock. The song is perhaps the most personal song on ROBYN HITCHCOCK, possibly the most explicitly personal one in his 40-year songbook. An evocative ode to memory and progress, “Raymond & The Wires” sees Hitchcock peering back through the fog of time to examine the still-impactful influences of trains, trams, and trolleys and his late father.

“This video is a collage of years and Hitchcocks, assembled by Jeremy Dylan from archive trolleybus footage; from my family's home movies; and from film he shot of me recently,” says Hitchcock. “I'm singing the song on a tram in Melbourne, Australia about a trolleybus ride I took with my late father Raymond in Reading, England in 1964. In these clips Raymond, resplendent in early 1970s porno moustache, is younger than the present-day me is now. My current self is also in there perving over some beautiful vintage trams in San Francisco. There's a glimpse of 13- year-old me stepping out of a boat to greet my sister Fleur, who now in later life is an author and incidentally supplied Jeremy with the old family film. And 39-year-old me peers for a second from a weeping elm tree at Raymond's wake in 1992. His favourite folk band, the Yetties from the West of England, gave us all a free show - what a night! Raymond liked a nice tune. This would probably have embarrassed him, given what a distant English family we were. But his spirit loves acknowledgement, I like to think: and I'm sure he lives through me as fully as any ghost. On ya, dad!”

Hailed by Uncut as “the psych maverick’s loudest, liveliest album in decades,” ROBYN HITCHCOCK is available now for pre-order, with all digital pre-orders accompanied by instant downloads of the metamorphic first single, “I Want To Tell You About What I Want,” album highlight, “Mad Shelley’s Letterbox,” and new single "Raymond and The Wires." A very special ROBYN HITCHCOCK bundle featuring an exclusive poster and t-shirt is also on offer at the Yep Roc Store.

SEAN ROWE - Neues Video / Live in Hamburg + Berlin

Der gefeierte Singer/Songwriter SEAN ROWE veröffentlichte letzte Woche seinen neuen Longplayer "New Lore" auf ANTI- Records.

Das neue Video zu dem Song "I´ll Follow Your Trail" ist ab sofort zu sehen.
Sean Rowe Live in Deutschland:
30.05.17 - Hamburg (DE) - Mojo Jazz Club
31.05.17 - Berlin (DE) - Monarch

Weitere Videos:
"Newton´s Cradle"

"Gas Station Rose"

All Music calls Sean Rowe’s new album New Lore “Rowe's most heartfelt songwriting to date” while the Wall Street Journal compares the singer-songwriter to the late great legend Leonard Cohen. Rowe has also just released a video for the track "I'll Follow Your Trail. " Directed by Chromoscope Pictures, the clip features the singer - also a renowned naturalist - walking through a forest playing acoustic guitar and singing. Watch the video here.

The album New Lore was recorded in Memphis at the historic Sam Phillips Recording studio and produced by Matt Ross-Spang. The simple yet powerful sound focuses on Rowe’s soulful baritone and vivid storytelling delivering stories of desperation and resilience. His voice is beautifully augmented throughout by tasteful arrangements including flourishes of piano and a string section. The record’s emotionally haunting sound echoes Rowe’s recent crossover hit “To Leave Something Behind,” a song that resonated with a whole new wider audience after being featured in the Ben Affleck film 'The
Accountant.’ “New Lore confirms Rowe’s status as one of Americana’s most compelling and distinctive artists.” - American Songwriter
