CTRONIC-HOUSE TROUBADOURS SEA BED UNVEIL FURTHER TRACK FROM THEIR MUCH ANTICIPATED DEBUT EP ROSSO

Check out the amazing mix that the duo have just dropped over at the fantastic Wonderland at this link
Brighton based duo Sea Bed are not your typical electronic act. With an instrument in one hand and an array of tech reserved for the other, Lizzie Massey and Jim Corbin are more than ready to deliver their unique blend of Indie inspired House music. Their debut EP Rosso has all the infectious rhythms and cyclical phrases to inspire a true sense of excitement and euphoria in the most cynical of listeners.Massey (vocals/ bass) and Corbin (guitar/ programming) owe their humble beginnings to a vibrant indie-pop scene in Brighton and found their feet when sharing the stage together as part of home-grown four piece Tiny Dragons. Deciding to take an all-together more electronic route for their musicaloutput, the two artists branched out and formed what is now Sea Bed in 2014.

Despite clinging to their organic influences and using the instruments they grew up playing, Sea Bed steadily introduced a dietary supplement of Berghain influenced Techno, UK Bass and House to aid their craft.

With a penchant for the deeper, distorted and more melodic, Sea Bed blend sampling, song writing and a broad sonic palette to create their vision of a dark dance floor led utopia. As a band, a duo, and as serious musicians, Sea Bed never stays comfortable for long. Their intent is to meld elements of their past and present into music of the future.

Take track 2 ‘Caves’, for instance. The track is built around a nagging electronic earworm of a riff that is reinforced by the jumping and skipping pop-funk bass of Massey. A strong-4-to-the-floor beat adds to the track’s defining features and a stripped back section following the verses precedes the catchy phrase taking centre stage to incur its full infectious effect. This could quite easily be a Disclosure track that the fellow UK duo would be proud of. On penultimate track ‘Haunted’, Corbin’s artistry sets the back drop as Massey’s hypnotically harmonised vocals soar and reverberate over a swirling bass and typically trebly high-hat and snare cracks sound. Hints of electronic producer Baths creeps into the mix.

For hybrid indie-house act Sea Bed the power is very much in their hands. With the continued emergence of duos – namely The XX, Disclosure etc. – their blend of typical band instruments and laptops, drum pads and cabling, finds them with many avenues of opportunity to take their contagious style of music wherever they see fit.

ART NIKELS

“Fresh”

“Feels like a passing cloud on a nice warm day”

“Strong edge of originality”

​- EARMILK premiere brand new track 

Debut EP ‘Primitives’
Out March 30th
On Peach Fuzz Recordings

Art Nikels is a brewing presence in the East Bay and greater San Francisco music scene. Art Nikels presents a freeform blend of electronically fused psych-rock, citing influences ranging from hip-rock to kraut-höp. Unpredictable performers, their shows have reportedly oozed Flying Lotus medleys, Black Sabbath covers, and contemporary pantomime.

Their early years in a cavernous laboratory were soon forgotten. But it was there, aside their mysterious founder and beneficiary, Arthur Nikels, (and many other established lepidopterists in the field) that they truly began to formulate the axioms of their fuzz-folk morphology.

The Summer of 2014 saw Art Nikels’ first sunburn and a west-coast tour. They are currently set to release ‘Primitives EP’, also their first.

Art Nikels play live:

April 3rd @ Stork Club, San Francisco

Fuzzed-Up Grunge Pop Trio Release New Free Download Single
Winter’s Glow out 30th March via Clue Records

https://soundcloud.com/cluerecords/forever-cult-winters-glow/
“Heavy, imposing songwriting reminiscent of The Jesus Lizard and the more intense moments of Mudhoney’s early career” – Clash Magazine (Track of the Day)

“Inhabiting the sludgier end of the grunge spectrum with frontman Kieran working
between a mellow slacker drawl up to Taz-esque levels of vocal turmoil.” – Drowned In Sound

”…a clattering, visceral affair that shares an urgency with Leeds-based peers Eagulls and perhaps even an appreciation of noise similar to Hookworms” – Artrocker

”…Intensely gritty attitude… no nonsense grunge” – Punktastic

Following the release of thrashing fuzz-pop number ‘Yasmin’, FOREVER CULT are back with the angst ridden auditory assault of ‘Winter’s Glow’.  With a solid 2014 behind them including appearances at Leeds & Reading Festival, Live at Leeds and their first UK tour, the Leeds trio are set to unleash the first of three free downloads over the coming months, with the first offering being released courtesy of Clue Records (Allusondrugs/NARCS) on Monday 30th March.

“WINTER’S GLOW” is 3 minutes of tireless post-grunge psychedelia, with Kieran Clarke’s bloodcurdling lyrical charge emerging from the incessant distorted wall of slacker bass fuzz and relentless drums.  If Winter’s Glow was a meal, it would probably be a massive burger…maybe with a massive gherkin in the middle somewhere too. It’s sleazy, gritty and filthy… kind of enjoyable, but ultimately not very good for your health.

With a number of impressive festivals appearances already lined-up for 2015 and high-praise from the likes of Drowned in SoundBBC Introducing & Amazing Radiounder their belt, Forever Cult are taking their high octane raucous live show on the road again, embarking on a UK tour in support of their first release of the year throughout early April, including dates alongside the likes of Demob Happy, Allusondrugs and Post War Glamour Girls.

“Winter’s Glow” is set to be released on Clue Records on 30th March 2015 for FREE DOWNLOAD via the Clue Records Soundcloud.

CAMERON BLAKE PREMIERES NEW TRACK ‘DETROIT’ WITH FOLK RADIO UK

A mere week to go before Cameron Blake’s new album ‘Alone On The World Stage’ hits the shelves and here we have another taste of what’s to come!

Give Detroit a listen and see what you think!

Writing about current events without coming off cliché, preachy or cynical is a tricky business. During the struggle for civil rights and the protests against Vietnam, the adaptability of the folk genre to political statement came about naturally as masses of young people organized protests and sang songs by the songwriters who voiced their discontent. This topical song movement died fifty years ago. Those who, in the sixties, took to the streets now inhabit the virtual world of social media, sending out their message by way of a photo, tweet or status change. The songwriter with something to say is now forced to outwit the restraints of political correctness and pop culture to be heard above the noise.

Cameron Blake’s latest offering, Alone On The World Stage accepts the challenge and succeeds with empathy, intelligence and poetic power. Instead of bashing the city government for its fiscal problems in “Detroit,” Blake sings about the daily life of a broken woman. Instead of making a newspaper headline out of the North Dakota oil boom, he personifies the state, making it cry and sing. Though Blake declines the confrontational mode of the protest song, he takes advantage of the direct performance style of the folk era, using nothing but solo voice and guitar throughout the album. The effect is the raw, simple power that made the great folk singers great. Blake evokes the ethos of that era but without nostalgia for it. Instead, he pays attention to the present, with songs that are entirely new.

About the songwriting process, Blake says, “There was a huge learning curve playing solo and writing songs that can carry without added instrumentation, but it’s been an invigorating process that has forced me to become even more critical of my writing and playing. Many artists have inspired the project from Nick Drake to Japanese Butoh dancer Kazuo Ohno and Danish filmmaker Carl Dryer.”

Recorded and produced by Peter Fox at Stone House Recording in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Alone On The World Stage highlights the studio as a third instrument and provides a platform where negative and positive sonic space collaborate. Each song sounds as if it’s recorded in a different room and could stand alone, but the artful mastering of Grammy Award-winning engineer Bill Wolf pulls the twelve tracks into a cohesive whole that plays beautifully from start to finish.

Alone On The World Stage follows the release of three other acclaimed studio releases and one live album since Blake hit the indie folk scene running in 2009. But it seems as if his creativity has just begun. The record is a milestone, depicting where he’s been and the direction he’s headed. Looking back, Blake recalls the changes that have taken place since his debut. Then, he was single, living in Baltimore, Maryland, playing with a large band of Peabody Conservatory grads and Baltimore Symphony members. Today, he’s married and a new father, living in Grand Rapids, Michigan and has recently found inspiration as a lone troubadour. “Every night before I wrote,” he says, “I had a mantra I would repeat to myself: You have everything you need to write a great song- a brain, a heart and a pencil.”

Alone On The World Stage ranges widely, from the global, in songs such as “Rise and Shine,” which deals with the complexities of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, to the personal and intimate, as with “Ultrasound,” in which Blake rejoices in images of his unborn daughter. The result is a wise and passionate evocation of a world where Blake succeeds in welcoming us all.

”Blake’s sparse solo acoustic and haunting vocals make for a melancholy blend, but it’s a pretty compelling one.” Guitarist

”There is no denying the strength of his talents as both a singer and a songwriter” Folk Radio UK

”Channelling a large dollop of Leonard Cohen’s world weariness, Woody Guthrie’s tales, and Dylan ‘n’ Donovan’s 1964 directness, our intrepid troubadour from Michigan is as prolific as he is affecting” Shindig

”Cameron Blake is an adept fingerpicker, seemingly able to conjure full orchestras of sound from those 6 strings.” Clash
