New Album ‘Digital Tropics’

Small Pond Recordings

Previous praise for Mutiny On The Bounty:

“…a must-hear for anyone who enjoys their technical, melodic rock” – Rock Sound (9/10)

“…Mutiny On The Bounty’s wild time signatures and eclectic post-hardcore yelps invite the desire to listen again and again” – Kerrang! (4/5)

“…with careering riffs and electronic blips, this is a band that are intent on transporting you to another world” ­– Big Cheese (3/5)

Following on from their last album ‘Trials’ released in 2012, Luxembourg post-rock quartet Mutiny On The Bounty are ready to release their new album ‘Digital Tropics’. The new album comes in the wake of signing to new up-and-coming Brighton based record label Small Pond Recordings, and a UK tour in December 2014 which saw the band play alongside the likes of Maybeshewill, Flood of Red, Dialects and Polymath.

The new album sees the band fully embrace their instrumental side which was heavily championed on their last album. On the new album the band have said, “Digital Tropics” englobes all the facets of our personalities going from rock, to electro and more varied influences such as 80’s pop or even hip-hop. It gives a wider range of emotions and we believe that it’s a powerful album. We’re really proud of this album and can’t wait to share it with everyone”

The appropriately named lead track ‘MKL JCKSN’ is the perfect introduction to ‘Digital Tropics’, with reverb soaked and groove-infused staccato melodies from the guitars dancing around a technical and mechanically intricate rhythm section. Elsewhere tracks such as ‘Telekinesis’ infuse slightly heavier riffs and driving rhythm with guitars that sound closer to keys or synths than strings, giving the track a diverse and uplifting feel. This is where the inclusion of new influences can be heard, at times you can almost hear elements of Kraftwerk, whereas other areas are closer to bands such as ASIWYFA, Faraquet or Battles. Similarly this can also be heard in ‘Ecliptic’ which darts between the realms of electro, math-rock, and Vangelis/Brad Fiedel-esque moments of euphonious orchestration.

MOTB are a band that have soared from strength-to-strength with every album by delving further into their individual personalities to explore new sounds and composition techniques. In doing so the band have reached new territory exploring a more deceivingly moody soundscape than ‘Trials’ which is both technically challenging yet entirely danceable.

‘Digital Tropics’ is a work of relentless convergence and exploratory disposal that reaches to the heart of both emotional and creative expression. The result of which has created MOTB’s most diverse and accomplished album to date.

The Dreaming Spires

Searching For The Supertruth

Clubhouse Records / 16th March 2015

 

Available on CD / Ltd Edition double vinyl

 

Praise for 2012’s ‘Brothers In Brooklyn’

 

“… the most thrilling country rock debut album since Big Star”

**** (4 Stars) – Q Magazine

 

“…sun-scorched twang…power-pop hooks and sweet harmonies”

8/10 UNCUT

 

“…it’s clever, fresh-faced, melodic and it believes.”

**** (4 Stars) Independent on Sunday

 

As heard on Steve Lamacq, Mark Radcliffe, Lauren Laverne, Shaun Keaveny and more

 

SEARCHING FOR THE SUPERTRUTH (The title is borrowed from cosmic evolution theorist Rich Blundell) is a distinctive and diverse follow up to their acclaimed debut BROTHERS IN BROOKLYN and while it will continue to attract comparisons to Big Star, it also reaches out into new psychedelic realms and is filled with grand strings, strange poetry and backwards guitars. While the Americana narrative of the debut and recent EP Darkest Before The Dawn continues through tracks like Still Believe in You, Strange Glue and Dusty in Memphis, the emphasis and movement is towards the cosmic and mystical, more I Am The Cosmos than Back of a Car, making this the Spires’ most accomplished and moving release yet.

 

What is the supertruth? You’ll know when you find it. The answer’s all inside.

 

The record is produced by The Dreaming Spires and mixed by Rowland Prytherch, with additional production from Nick Holton andTony Poole. Guest musicians include Sarah Cracknell (St Etienne), Tony Poole (Starry Eyed & Laughing), Jackie Oates, Nick Holton (Black Hearted Brother) and “Free Jazz” Geoff Widdowson (Danny and the Champions of the World).

 

THE DREAMING SPIRES are brothers Robin and Joe Bennett, who also handle most instrumental duties, with Jamie Dawson on drums and percussion. Regular live guitarist Nick Fowler (also of Gaz Coombes’ band) contributes guitar to many tracks. Known to some as “the Notorious Bennett Brothers”, Robin and Joe have carved out some renown as accomplished musicians as well as co-founders of acclaimed festivals, a label and even a record store.

 

Their musical pedigree includes stints in Goldrush and Danny & the Champs, touring and recording with Mark Gardener of Ride, and collaborations with everyone from Gary Louris of The Jayhawks to Garth Hudson of The Band, Mercury Rev to Saint Etienne (the brothers recently headlined The Barbican as members of the present live incarnation of Saint Etienne). Joe also plays with fellow travelers Co_Pilgrim and Robin co-writes with several other acts and has his own side-project Dusty Sound System.

 

From their earliest guise (a band called Whispering Bob who released a mini-album in the late 90s and received airplay from radio legends John Peel and, naturally, Bob Harris) the Bennett brothers have long straddled a line between the influence of roots music, classic 60s pop and their youthful love of indie rock from both sides of the Atlantic, always anchored by their distinctive harmonies in the tradition of The Everly Brothers and The Byrds.

Joe Stilgoe

‘New Songs For Old Souls’

Released – April 27th

Debut West End stage role 

in Kevin Spacey’s  ‘High Society’

www.joestilgoe.com

  • ‘A jazz pianist and songwriter of considerable talent.’ The Guardian
  • ‘Songs at the piano don’t get much sharper than this.’ The Observer
  • ‘Pitched somewhere between Jamie Cullum and Michael Bublé, Joe (writes] songs that sound like you’ve known them for years.’  Daily Express
  • “A truly remarkable singer songwriter, not to mention outstanding piano player… I thank you for creating that most exciting of moments when, as a lover of good music, you know you have seen and heard something remarkable.” Sir Michael Parkinson

Joe Stilgoe, is the renaissance man of modern jazz.  He is a pianist, a jazz musician and a singer/songwriter.   Joe has a new album, ‘New Songs For Old Souls’ – which is to be released   April 27th on Linn Records.

The album consists of 12 songs with ten originals by Joe, including three thrilling big band numbers:  ‘Nobody Cares Like Me’,‘Pocket Song’ and a new version of ‘Gold On Silver’, previously heard on his last album ‘Songs On Film Live’.  Joe also duets with Liane Carroll on a wistful cover of Brian Wilson’s ‘I Just Wasn’t Made For These Times’, one of the album’s two non-original songs.

Of ‘New Songs for Old Souls’, he says: “It’s modern nostalgia, it’s me looking back to all the great music that has influenced and inspired me – from the 40s, the 50s, the 60s – but then fitting that influence into the modern day to make a modern sound. There is a hint of retro here, definitely, but what I’m trying to make is new music for a new audience.”

The album release coincides with his first major West End stage role, in Kevin Spacey’s ‘High Society’ at the Old Vic Theatre –  from April 30th – August 22nd.   Directed by Olivier Award-winning Maria Friedman, Joe will be performing in a role that has been specially created for him.

“It’s a dream job in many ways, I suppose, and I’ll be playing to my perfect audience: people who like a bit of nostalgia, a little swing, and a lot of authenticity.”

CAT CANTERI

When We Were Young

Mountain King Music Cat. No. CCC01

Format CD/DL

Distr. MGM

Release date: 11 May 2015

 

Mountain King Music is proud to announce the full UK release of When We Were Young, the debut album by Cat Canteri of acclaimed Australian trio The Stillsons.

 

When We Were Young was initially released in Australia in September 2014. It has received outstanding praise in both the international press and on radio, with the song ‘See My Bones’ being aired on Bob Harris’ BBC Radio 2 show.

 

The album is a rare combination of emotional vulnerability and musical accomplishment. Canteri’s warm, charismatic vocal tones deliver her highly personal stories (e.g. anorexia, post-war friendship in an Australian timber town) with an easy, pop sensibility. When We Were Young is essential listening for fans of Carole King and Fleetwood Mac.

 

Canteri plays drums, guitars, and keyboards on the majority of the album, with contributions from highly regarded musicians such as Ben Franz (The Waifs, The Stillsons), Stevie Hesketh (The Drones, Jet), and Justin Bernasconi (The Stillsons).

 

When We Were Young was produced, recorded, and mixed by ARIA award-winning Craig Pilkington (Archie Roach, Gurrumul) at Audrey Studios, Melbourne. It was mastered by Adam Dempsey at Deluxe Mastering in 2014.

 

The Stillsons are a Melbourne based alt.country group, whose live performances are a must see for any fans of heartbreaking harmonies, eclectic songwriting, and high calibre guitar playing.

 

The band features two singers-songwriters, Cat Canteri (drums) and Justin Bernasconi (guitar). Their third release Never Go Your Way was voted ‘Country Album of 2013’ in the Rhythms Magazine (Australia’s premier roots music publication) readers’ poll, as well as receiving 4/5 stars in UK magazine R2 (Rock’n’Reel); and The Australian (national broad sheet).

 

“Canteri has strength and drive… so you’re thinking a 1970s framework of rootsiness and rockiness… it’s a very fine start” Sydney Morning Herald

 

“It’s great… sensual, warm and a ting of real quality, recommended” Americana UK 8/10 stars
