THE ACES - "Physical" Video / EP im Juni auf Red Bull Records

THE ACES präsentieren zu ihrer neuen Single „Physical“ ein passendes Video, welches laut Band-Aussage eine Kampfansage gegen alle sexistischen Klischees über Frauenbands ist:

"Für uns ist es ein großer Mittelfinger an alles, was von einer Frauenband erwartet wird.“ The Aces.

Musikalisch erinnert der Track an Bands wie Haim, The 1975 oder Mund.

„Physical - Video" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aYpDjxyj4oU

 „Physical" wird auf der am 23.06. erscheinenden Debüt-EP „I Don´t Like Being Honest“ auf Red Bull Records / Sony vertreten sein.

 The Aces sind eine vierköpfige Pop-Band aus UTAH. Im Alter von 13 haben die Schwestern Cristal und Alisa Ramirez (Gesang/Gitarre und Schlagzeug) und ihren beiden Freundinnen McKenna Petty und Katie Henderson die Band gegründet. Im letzten Jahr wurde Red Bull Records auf das Quartett aufmerksam und hat die Gruppe gleich unter Vertrag genommen. Die US-Presse ist das derzeit hin und weg, u.a. wurden The Aces mehrfach als “Artists To Watch in 2017” benannt (NPR, Paper Mag, Idolator, All Things Go,  Euphoria. Magazine etc)

Aktuell ist die Band mit Florian Nowak im Dailyhero Recordings mit den Aufnahmen zum Nachfolger ihres Debütalbums “Die Reise zum Mittelmaß der Erde“ beschäftigt.

Wie so viele bedeutende Gangs wurde auch die ALEX MOFA GANG an einem verrauchten Abend zwischen Tisch und Theke geboren. Von ihren Leben als Tontechniker, Tourmanager, Lichttechniker, Backliner und Mercher in die Heimat zurückgekehrt, wurde von den langjährigen Freunden Tommy, Matze, Michi, Gregor und Sascha die ALEX MOFA GANG gegründet.

Sänger und Texter Sascha hatte die Schubladen voller Songs. Demos, die der Soundtrack zur Geschichte “Die Reise Zum Mittelmaß Der Erde“ sind, welche den literarischen Rahmen und roten Faden für jeden Song der Band bildet. Eine Dekade voller Verlust und Exzess, Hoffnung und Liebe, dem Heranwachsen und Scheitern an Banalitäten im Leben von Protagonist Alex Mofa wird hier Stück für Stück vertont und entwickelt. Stets mit dem Blick für das Wesentliche, ohne an Detail zu verlieren. Schnell wurde den Jungs klar, dass sie sich alle nicht nur musikalisch sondern auch textlich aufgehoben fühlten, sogar in der Geschichte von Alex Mofa wiederfanden.

 Diese konnte man zuerst anhand der “laut/leise“ Kassette und “Vorwort-EP“ (zu haben als CD+Heft, mittlerweile gesucht, weil ausverkauft) mitverfolgen, welche die Band in Eigenenergie veröffentlichten. Ihr Debüt “Die Reise Zum Mittelmaß Der Erde“ ist am 29. Januar 2016 bei People Like You Records erschienen.

 Die folgenden Videos gibt es von “Die Reise zum Mittelmaß der Erde“ zu sehen:

Deafheaven’s  latest album New Bermuda was released in October 2015 to much critical acclaim. New Bermuda is the anticipated follow up to 2013’s Sunbather, offering an audacious amalgamation of frenetic black metal, hypnotic shoe gaze and the aural atmospherics of post rock, Deafheaven deliver an extraordinarily innovative sound, simultaneously captivating and cathartic.

George Clarke (vocals), Kerry McCoy (guitar), Dan Tracy (drums), Stephen Lee Clark (bass), and Shiv Mehra (guitar) recorded New Bermuda live to tape at 25th Street Recording in Oakland, CA and Atomic Garden Recording in East Palo Alto, CA in April 2015. It was produced, engineered, mixed, and mastered by Jack Shirley who has worked with the band on their previous releases. Clarke says that he came up with the idea of “New Bermuda” to describe a new destination in life, a nebulous point of arrival, and an unknown future where things get swallowed up and dragged into darkness. The album artwork for New Bermuda is an oil painting, dense in brush strokes of darker tones and deep blues, by Allison Schulnik. The layout was designed by art director Nick Steinhardt.


Critical Acclaim for New Bermuda

“Deafheaven’s music at its best represents a brilliant collision of beauty and despair.” – Pitchfork
"Play it on repeat and top volume, and the emotional catharsis will make up for any hearing loss that results." - Rolling Stone
“a tsunami of noise, swelling and crushing like waves sent from Poseidon amid a vast ocean” – Metal Hammer (UK)
“a masterpiece” –  Kerrang! (UK)

One thing is certain: it won’t get better than this, this year “– Der Spiegel (Germany)
“The progressive and amazing way this band mixes various musical styles is breathtaking.” – Visions (Germany)
"Musically, this album predicts a great future for the band." - Rolling Stone (Germany)

JADE JACKSON  - Neuer Song Good Time Gone / Album am 19.05.

JADE JACKSON präsentiert mit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P9I7hpbMWKE „Good Time Gone“  einen weiteren neuen Songs, aus ihrem am 19.05. erscheinenden von Mike Ness produzierten Debüt „Gilded“.

American Songwriter is premiering a new song from acclaimed young country rock sensation Jade Jackson. The track, entitled "Good Time Gone” is off her debut album Gilded, produced by Social Distortion frontman Mike Ness and out May 19th. Listen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P9I7hpbMWKE

Jackson was recently featured in Rolling Stone Country’s “10 New Country Artists You Need to Know” where they described her as a “A raspy-throated, confident-beyond-her-years songwriter channeling Hank Williams via a somber goth-folk aesthetic.” CMT recently proclaimed that Jackson “makes a bold introduction with her debut album Gilded.”

“Good Time Gone” is a supremely catchy reverb guitar drenched punkabilly anthem loaded with swagger and a sense of crashed out romance.

As Jackson explains, “I came into rehearsal one day with a song I'd written the night before and we started jamming. Tyler upped the tempo, Andrew and Jake added some chords and I messed with the melody. After we found the groove, I realized the lyrics no longer fit. The following weekend, as I stared out the car window on my way to LA it hit me, I had a story I wanted to tell. On an old, dirty envelope I found under my seat and with a half broken pencil, I scribbled down this hero-less tale of two lovers. When Mike (Ness) heard it he said it was "wild" and wanted it on the record. In the studio, Mike added his flare and it came to be. We are all excited to share "Good Time Gone" with you.”

Jackson’s album Gilded is unapologetically country rock, merging the heartbreak and resilience of Lucinda Williams with the melodic confidence of Emmylou Harris, yet containing the emotional presence of a young musician who cherished albums by The Gun Club and Smiths alongside the works of George Jones and Hank Williams.

Early Press For Jade Jackson’s Gilded:

“Part Hank Williams, part the Smiths….a unique combination of deadpan and delicate” - The Bluegrass Situation
“Jade Jackson’s album, Gilded, is a work of remarkable depth and maturity for a songwriter who is barely over the brow of her teens.” - Guitarist
“Meet the new heart of country, with the soul of punk rock” – Punktastic
“enchanting and melancholic take on country.” – Music Week

OVERCOATS – Album-VÖ Heute

Die OVERCOATS aus New York sind Hana Elion and JJ Mitchell, das von Nicolas Vernhes (The War On Drugs, Dirty Projectors) produzierte Debüt ”Young“ erscheint heute auf Arts & Crafts.

Album-Stream http://n.pr/2o37jvj

Eine tolle Live-Session bei den Kollegen von NPR ist hier einsehbar: http://n.pr/2o37jvj

Weitere Infos:

This friday, Overcoats will release their debut album ‘YOUNG’ (4/21, Arts & Crafts), and today, NPR First Listen has the early stream of the record. Bob Boilen called 'YOUNG' "one of the best albums of 2017," saying the album is "driven by ambition and passion." Read their full review and listen to the album in its entirety here: http://n.pr/2o37jvj

‘YOUNG’ has earned early praise from the New York Times, who compared Overcoats to the Everly Brothers and dubbed their track “Kai’s Song” an “electronic hymn.” The duo just finished up a run of dates with Maggie Rogers and will embark on a headlining tour next week, kicking off with a sold-out, hometown release show at Brooklyn’s Rough Trade on 4/20, followed by a second show at NYC’s Mercury Lounge on 4/21. Watch Overcoats’ “vibrant harmonies and the bountiful dance parties” (Bob Boilen) during their recent NPR Tiny Desk Concert: http://n.pr/2o37jvj

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. Hana and JJ started Overcoats while they were college roommates and they 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.
