Records. The tour will kick off on June 2nd at the Paradise Rock Club in Boston, MA and conclude on August 16th at The Wiltern in Los Angeles. Tickets for all dates will be available for purchase starting at 9:00 AM local time on Friday, April 28th. See below for a complete list of dates. 

After becoming the biggest breaking British rock band with their self-titled 2014 debut album, Royal Blood's second album 'How Did We Get So Dark?' is one of the most anticipated releases of the summer. The album's lead single "Lights Out" and accompanying music video is now available. 'How Did We Get So Dark' will be released on digital, CD and vinyl formats.

Before they knew it, they were performing for Howard Stern, touring with Foo Fighters, holding dressing room audiences with Jimmy Page in New York, and being presented with a BRIT for Best British Band in 2015 by the very same guitar god.

BNLX back in action after 2 year hiatus with new “emergency” single release + shows on 4/8 and 4/15

posted Apr 2, 2017, 3:14 PM by Vu Nguyen

The new
BNLX single “Resist, Resist” will have its world premiere on The Current during the April 2, 2017 edition of The Local Show, broadcast & streamed, starting at 6pm CDT.

When BNLX played its most recent shows in Spring 2015 (the explosive BNLXFest III and NYC gigs with Les Big Byrd), band founders Ed and Ashley Ackerson knew they would be off the radar for a little while due to the imminent arrival of their daughter Annika. However, the ensuing months saw a series of unexpected massive life events unfold in rapid succession, including the death of Ed’s parents and the loss of the family’s two dogs and cat (including BNLX album cover stars Wiggy and Twiki). Not surprisingly, band activities got put on hold, and what had looked like a 4-6 month break turned into a full blown two-year hiatus.


Recent political developments have given the band a renewed purpose, and it became clear that now is the time for the band to return to action. BNLX has always been a band with a distinct socio-political outlook, with a mission to inform, agitate, and motivate for change and social justice. The first product of the reconstituted BNLX is the new “emergency” single, “Resist, Resist.” The song’s urgent message of unity, tolerance, and vigilance is reinforced by a massive (and growing!) cast of guests who lent their voices to the song’s refrain. Choir/mob members include Mark Mallman (and his dad, John), Ciaran Daly (The Stress of Her Regard), Two Harbors, Tommy Rehbein (Naive Sense/Farewell Continental), PD Larson, Jonatan Westh (Blackstrap), with more people from around the city/country/world adding tracks remotely before the song’s official release.


To coincide with this 2017 BNLX reboot, two shows have been scheduled: Saturday, April 8th at the Uptown VFW (with superfriend Mark Mallman) and Saturday, April 15th at the What’s Up Lounge in Mankato (with The Blind Shake and Kid Dakota).

Cameron Avery

posted Mar 28, 2017, 3:47 AM by Vu Nguyen

Perth-based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist
Cameron Avery is coming to North America this spring in support of his debut album Ripe Dreams, Pipe Dreams out via Anti-on March 10th. The longtime drummer of Pond and touring bassist for Tame Impala will get to tour his own project for the very first time, where he'll use his dynamic baritone and soaring soul-pop melodies to propel his audiences through the dreamscapes he'll create with his band. He'll also be making an appearance at this year's SXSW in Austin. See all tour dates below.

On Ripe Dreams, Pipe Dreams, Avery offers an ornate yet gritty sound driven by his soulful wit and sweeping arrangements. His deep, husky voice recalls the dark power and humor of artists like Nick Cave, Scott Walker, and Tindersticks, channeling train-wreck romanticism into timeless music for the modern age.

"I wanted to make something that sounded like the old records I love-Johnny Hartman, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Sarah Vaughan, Etta James-the big band stuff with less metaphorical lyrics," says Avery of the inspiration for Ripe Dreams, Pipe Dreams.

Cameron Avery tour dates:
 
3/22 - Rickshaw Stop - San Francisco, CA
3/24 - Holocene - Portland, OR
3/25 - Barboza - Seattle, WA
3/28 - 7th Street Entry - Minneapolis, MN
3/29 - Schubas Tavern - Chicago, IL
3/31 - The Rivoli - Toronto, ON
4/1 - Le Divan Orange - Montreal, QC

Jayme Stone

posted Mar 26, 2017, 6:44 PM by Vu Nguyen

Jayme
Stone shared the song “There Is More Love Somewhere” from his upcoming album Jayme Stone’s Folklife to released on April 7 on Borealis Records. 

Stone heard this song performed by Bessie Jones and said the arrangement “lit up my banjo in a matter of minutes.” In an interview about the song Jones explains that, “Love is just a hidden mystery. Everything in your heart. It’s chill, it’s peace, it’s joy. In other words, it’s straight confidence. You got to love yourself first.”

Jayme Stone’s Folklife follows the bends and bayous through the deep river of song and story. Evolving out of Stone's Lomax Project, this gathering of versatile musicians blows the dust off of old songs and remakes them for modern ears. With spellbinding singing, virtuosic playing and captivating storytelling, the album reworks songs found in the Library of Congress’ Archive of American Folklife.

Stone is the consummate collaborator, unearthing musical artifacts and magnetizing extraordinary artists to help rekindle these understudied sounds. He is a passionate educator, producer and instigator. Stone has been called the “Yo-Yo Ma of the banjo” (Globe and Mail) and his music has been featured on NPR, CBC, BBC and at venues across North America and abroad, including the Lincoln and Kennedy Centers. Jayme Stone’s Folklife is the prolific artist’s seventh album and he’s won two Juno and three Canadian Folk Music Awards.

The recording features singer extraordinaire Moira Smiley (tune-yArDs), Grammy-winning songster Dom Flemons (Carolina Chocolate Drops), cornetist Ron Miles (Bill Frisell), singer Felicity Williams (Bahamas) and more. A powerful chemistry and camaraderie amongst the musicians can be felt throughout the record.

The album comes with detailed song notes as well as a series of bright, folkloric illustrations commissioned from artist Camilla Perkins. As Stone explains in the introduction, “In this age of monoculture, it’s no wonder that many of us seek nearly-forgotten artifacts from the past: an antique Radio Flyer wagon, a dog-eared first edition, a hymn as old as dirt. But I’m no collector, nor am I particularly nostalgic. I revel in the act of discovery. I want 33⅓ revelations per minute. I crave collaboration. So I gathered together fellow keen-eared musicians to help blow the dust off these carefully chosen songs, uncover their hidden histories, and till fresh soil to see what might spring forth from these sturdy seeds.”

The xx to Tour North America

posted Jan 5, 2017, 5:51 PM by Vu Nguyen

The xx
will tour North America this spring, with headline dates kicking off April 15 in San Francisco, and further shows in Seattle, Chicago, Austin, Philadelphia, New York and more as well as festival slots at Coachella and others soon to be announced. The tour celebrates the release of the band’s highly anticipated third album, I See You, set for release January 13 on Young Turks.
Fan presale tickets will be available beginning Tuesday, January 10 at 12p.m. ET, with tickets available to the public Friday, January 13 at 10a.m. local time. For more information, visit thexx.info.
The dates will follow a historic European tour, including a record-setting, seven night run at the O2 Academy Brixton in London, marking the longest ever run of sold out shows at the legendary venue, performing to 35,000 people over seven hometown performances.
Say Something Loving,” the second track to be released from the album, is out now. 
The xx recently released their video for “On Hold,” the first single from I See You. The video was shot in Marfa, Texas, where the band wrote and recorded some of the album, and was directed by acclaimed filmmaker and photographer Alasdair McLellan
“On Hold” is available now on 7” vinyl. The limited-edition release features an etched B-side and deboss mirri sleeve and is available to purchase.
I See You is the follow up to The xx’s two previous albums – xx and Coexist – which have sold over 3 million copies between them, winning a host of accolades along the way.
I See You marks a new era for the London trio of Romy Madley Croft, Oliver Sim and Jamie Smith, both sonically and in terms of process. For while xx and Coexist were both made in relative isolation in London, I See You was recorded between March 2014 and August 2016 in New York, Marfa TX, Reykjavik, Los Angeles and London, and is characterized by a more outward-looking, open and expansive approach. Produced by Jamie Smith and Rodaidh McDonald, I See You is The xx at their boldest yet, performing with more clarity and ambition than ever before.

L.E.J.'s Christmas Hors D’oeuvre available now

posted Dec 18, 2016, 8:28 PM by Vu Nguyen

Classically-driven French pop trio L.E.J. [Elijay] release their mannequin challenge inspired holiday  video for “Game Of Bells”, a modern take of the classic "Carol of the Bells” set to the tune of the Game of Thrones theme song. The song is from their recently released holiday EP, Christmas Hors D’oeuvre [Republic Records], available now at all digital retailers.
 
“The visual feels like a tour of a Christmas-decked Westeros… We're pretty sure Cersei is somewhere bumping the EP while downing her best bottle of red.” - COMPLEX
 
Following the runaway success of their massive viral smash “Summer 2016,which earned 2 million-plus plays on YouTube in just a week, the girls recorded three Christmas-themed covers. Playing organic, orchestral instruments with downright impressive chops, they transform “Game of Bells,” a fresh modern take of the classic "Carol of the Bells," and “Little Drummer Boy” with their own undeniable je ne sais quoi. Meanwhile, they bring heart and soul to a cinematic rendition of Simon & Garfunkel’s “The Sound of Silence.
 
It’s the perfect soundtrack to the holiday season!
 
The three childhood friends, Lucie, Elisa, and Juliette garnered a deep understanding of classical music and orchestration while attending conservatory in their native France together. They added that depth to pop music on 2016’s En attendant l’album by reimagining some of the biggest smashes in recent memory with a backdrop of cello and organic percussion. Following the international success of the breakthrough online hit “Summer 2015, L.E.J. opened up for Pharrell and sold 200,000 albums in less than three months.

Ryan Adams announces new album Prisoner

posted Dec 7, 2016, 11:09 PM by Vu Nguyen

In an exclusive interview with the world's foremost feline talk show host Lil BUB, pinball, comic book, black metal and hardcore enthusiast and multiple-Grammy-nominee-and-zero-winner Ryan Adams confirmed details of his first album of all new original material since 2014's Ryan Adams.

During the intimate and revealing interview, Adams divulged that the album, titled Prisoner, will be released February 17 on Pax-Am/Blue Note in the US (Virgin EMI in the UK), and previewed and discussed snippets (or "sniplets") of new tracks including first single "Do You Still Love Me?" which is available today for purchase and as an instant grat with all pre-orders.

"I was reflecting on the different states of desire and what it means to be a prisoner of your own desire," Adams told BUB of the new record's title, later adding, "I felt like I had been robbed of... the most valuable thing in a person's life…Time."

The twelve tracks that make up Prisoner came to Adams over a prolific period stretching back as far as the week his 2014 self-titled album entered the U.S. album chart at a career high of #4. During that run, Adams toured the world, recorded and released both his Live at Carnegie Hall collection and full-album cover of Taylor Swift's 1989, and saw the aforementioned Ryan Adams garner two Grammy nominations - Best Rock Song for "Gimme Something Good" and Best Rock Album.

And somehow during this two-year-plus whirlwind, Adams contends Prisoner virtually wrote itself. As he told Lil BUB, "Whatever was going on in me was strong enough that I only had to sit down and this stuff just made itself known."

Tune into Lil Bub’s channel later today for this exclusive interview

Ryan Adams' Prisoner track listing is below. The album will be available February 17, 2017 in formats including standard digital, HD digital, 180G vinyl and CD "Do You Still Love Me?” can be streamed

1. Do You Still Love Me?
