Olde Worlde is the solo project of multi-instrumentalist, Sohhei Numata. Born in Machida, Tokyo, Olde Worlde releases his brand new album The Blue Musk-Oxen in the UK on September 1st. Recorded, produced and mixed by Brad Wood (The Smashing Pumpkins, Ben Lee, Sunny Day Real Estate, Tortoise) it features current single Stuck In Hibernation – which is picking up airplay across BBC 6 Music, including spins at Lauren Laverne. On The Blue Musk-Oxen, Numata plays guitar, bass, drums, ukulele, piano, keyboard and moog.

As a precocious teenager, fixated on all kinds of musical styles from a very early age, it wasn’t long before he made himself a regular on the city’s busking circuit, absorbing the styles and skills of the city’s broad range of live talent. With much of the local music being sung in Japanese though, Namata looked to learn English from as many sources as he could, learning in person from J-Punk bands he would see live, but eventually settling on American Forces Radio as the medium to best be exposed to his adopted tongue.

Getting to grips with many a 90s US Indie Rock and Power Pop band through his radio, the traits of these come to the fore on The Blue Musk-Oxen. From former single Your Bird’s delicate lilt and simple melody, through to Stuck In Hibernation’s more fractured guitars and buoyant pace, The Blue Musk-Oxen is made a bright, sun-kissed, collection thanks to Brad Wood’s production.

HEART IN HAND
reveal new album details

Melodic Hardcore Kings HEART IN HAND have revealed that their brand new album, entitled “A Beautiful White”, will be released November 3rd on SOAR/Century Media Records in Europe.

Having formed in late 2008, HEART IN HAND undoubtedly have their own signature brand of Melodic Hardcore, and the world is starting to notice. Combining ferocious and dynamic heaviness with majestically layered soundscapes to startling effect. Touring with artists such as Miss May I, Bleed From Within, Heart Of A Coward, Comeback Kid, Hacktivist, Texas In July, For The Fallen Dreams, Dead Swans, Carpathian and Gallows to name a few.

Now HEART IN HAND return with their most accomplished and dynamic record to date – “A Beautiful White”. Choosing this time to self-produce, the band also enlisted the reputable ears of Will Putney at Machine Shop Studios (Thy Art Is Murder, Northlane), USA for mixing duties.

“A Beautiful White” track-listing:
01 Mae
02 A Beautiful White
03 Colours And Chemicals
04 Crying Shame
05 …
06 Poison Pen Letters
07 Last Night
08 Regain.Recover. Reprise
09 New Years Eve
10 My Heart Belongs In Denmark
11 Never Again
12 Jasmine

Here’s what the band had to say about the new album: “A Beautiful White is an album about fresh starts and overcoming problems that face you in life. Coming out of the darkness into the light and not letting bad things in life hold you back.This record has more diversity than our previous releases; we tried different things musically as well as vocally. There’s a guest spot which perfectly complements the song it’s featured on and the overall sound is a much more accomplished effort!”

HEART IN HAND will be on tour throughout the UK & Europe with The Amity Affliction in support of “A Beautiful White”, which will be released on November 3rd.

XANDER DUELL
 
‘EARTH ON ITS AXIS’
WATCH VIDEO HERE
ALBUM PRODUCED BY ANDREW WYATT OF MIIKE SNOW AND DAMON McMAHON OF AMEN DUNES OUT LATER THIS YEAR
Following the release of his debut long-player on Mexican Summer in 2011, New York City artist Xander Duell returns with new album ‘Wade Laiste’ on Swedish art collective INGRID label later this year.
For his follow-up full-length Wade Laiste, Xander was able to bring together the unlikely musical pairing of producers Andrew Wyatt of  Miike Snow, and Damon McMahon, creator of Amen Dunes.
The album was recorded in Sear Sound, one of New York City’s most renowned and historic recording studios, with a hyper-real rhythm section composed of David Bowie’s drummer (Sterling Campbell) and Maxwell’s bassist (Hod David), as well as musical accompaniment by producers Andrew Wyatt and Damon McMahon.
The first single to be taken off the album is ‘Earth On Its Axis’, watch the video here:
WATCH TO ‘EARTH ON ITS AXIS’ VIDEO: http://youtu.be/f8KVThrXedw

“Then in a drunken haze, stabbed her in the parking lot of a TGI Friday’s,” sings Xander on this track. It’s David Lynch blues & pill-head 2014 Avant-soul born from some of the deepest and most unusually combined musicianship on any record to come out of New York City for quite some time.
When a teenager, Xander Duell started the band Inouk with his brother. He later joined Ambulance LTD, where he co-wrote songs.
His solo debut, Experimental Tape No.2, Vol.1 was a collection of recordings done in a Chelsea apartment on Garage Band over the course of two years, late late at night and in the early morning. It was rich and involved pop song craft, mixed with uncompromising drug-damaged confession and discordance in songs that sometimes clocked in under a minute. The songs were fragmented paeans to regret, hallucination, hatred, and love, insanely and indiscriminately pieced together with anything he could get his hands on: cheesy MIDI piano, synth patches, drum machine wanderings, nylon string guitar, and lush three and four-part harmony.
Perhaps it was a bit too much for most people to wrap their heads around at the time, but where Experimental Tape No.2, Vol.1 was raw and inward bedroom-pop, new album Wade Laiste is slick and extroverted future soul.

SOEN

PROGRESSIVE MASTERS RETURN WITH NEW / SECOND STUDIO ALBUM, ‘TELLURIAN’,

SET FOR RELEASE VIA SPINEFARM RECORDS ON NOV 3RD

 

 

IT’S HARD to put a handle on SOEN, but if progressive music is ‘entertainment for those who are easily bored’, then this Swedish outfit fits easily under that heading.

 

As forthcoming  / second studio album, ‘Tellurian’, makes plain, SOEN – that’s drummerMartin Lopez (ex-Opeth, Amon Amarth), vocalist Joel Ekelöf (Willowtree), guitarist Joakim Platbarzdis & bassist Stefan Stenberg – are not concerned with the simple or the shallow; their musical journey takes an altogether more ambitious path, and the result is an expansive body of work, wrapped up in the stunning art of Mexican painter José Luis López Galván, that consistently challenges without being ‘clever-clever’ or tough to enjoy.

 

The melodies are intricate, the playing muscular and the choruses soaring; overall, the feel is one of a band – aided by Christian Andolf on keys – whose intent is very much in synch with the sort of core values (skilled musicianship, emotion over precision, importance of album artwork, etc.) that seem to be back in vogue…

 

Produced by Platbarzdis (who also played some of the bass), mixed by the legendary / Grammy Award-winning David Bottrill (ToolSmashing PumpkinsMuse, King Crimson,etc.) and mastered at Bob Ludwig’s Gateway set-up in the US, ‘Tellurian’ sees SOEN taking the approach of their ‘Cognitive’ debut (2012, Spinefarm Records) and pushing the boundaries in terms of musical scope, the whole thing shot through with the confidence of a band who have found their voice.

 

Rhythmic, experimental and flowing, and with the ‘muso’ side never taking precedence over a good song and a telling chorus, ‘Tellurian’ (‘relating to, or inhabiting the earth’) will appeal to anyone with an ear for quality playing, and there’s further reward to be had below the surface, with the lyrics taking a more direct route than on ‘Cognitive’, and the construction of the material – including first single / video ‘Tabula Rasa’ (‘Clean Slate’) – allowing room for the raw emotion to shine through.

 

Music for the head and the heart.

UNEARTH has released a new single called “The Swarm,” the first bit of new music from their forthcoming album “Watchers Of Rule”  – check it out here:
https://soundcloud.com/eone-music/unearth-theswarm/s-dcX6R

The band recently announced their all new album “Watchers of Rule” to be released via Century Media on November 3rd, 2014 in Europe. Mixed by Mark Lewis (WHITECHAPEL, DEVILDRIVER), this marks the band’s six full length LP in their decorated sixteen year tenure. Today, UNEARTH is also revealing the cover artwork for “Watchers Of Rule”, which was designed by Richey Beckett (www.richeybeckett.com)and the album track-listing.

“Watchers Of Rule” track-list:
1. Intro
2. The Swarm
3. Lifetime In Ruins
4. Guards Of Contagion
5. From The Tombs Of Five Below
6. Never Cease
7. Trail To Fire
8. To The Ground
9. Burial Lines
10. Birth Of A Legion
11. Watchers Of Rule

UNEARTH’s Trevor Phipps checked in with the following comment about the album: “Watchers of Rule is our most vicious, aggressive and anthemic album to date.  To say we are looking forward to people hearing this record is a gross understatement.  The album remains true to the Unearth sound, but also opens up a new direction of urgency and fire within our music.  Bang your heads my friends.
