You can now watch J Mascis’s wonderful “Tiny Desk Concert,” featuring Tied to a Startracks “Stumble,” “Drifter”/”Heal the Star” and the Dinosaur Jr. classic  “Little Fury Things” (from You’re Living All Over Me).

NPR Music’s Bob Boilen says of the performance, “The loudest guy in the world came to the “Tiny Desk” to perform some of his quietest music…for years a guy who’s turned my ears red, showed up armed with just an acoustic guitar. I even had an amp for that guitar all lined up, but he decided to not plug in. So we get a rare treat: a low-key J Mascis, performing emotional songs…If you think Mascis draws all his power from sheer volume, this ought to convince you otherwise (see NPR Music November 22).

In related news, Sub Pop will release J Mascis’ cover of the Mazzy Star classic “Fade Into You,” as a Record Store Day Black Friday exclusive on November 28th. The 7” single features “Fade Into You” on the A-side, and the previously-unreleased “Outside” on the B-side, which was recorded during sessions for Tied to a Star.  The “Fade Into You” single is limited to 4000 copies worldwide.

 Ward Thomas

EXTENSIVE UK TOUR ANNOUNCED FOR MARCH/APRIL 2015

 

DEBUT ALBUM ‘FROM WHERE WE STAND’ WINS BRITISH COUNTRY MUSIC AWARD FOR BEST UK ALBUM

 

TICKETS ON SALE 9AM FRIDAY 28TH NOVEMBER – MUSICGLUE.COM/WARDTHOMAS & GIGSANDTOURS.COM

 

Following the sell out success of their co – headline tour with fellow British Country flag flyers The Shires, critically acclaimed UK country duo Ward Thomas have today announced details of their own, 18 date UK and Ireland tour, to begin in March. The announcement follows hot on the heels of the band’s UK Album Of The Year Award win at this year’s British Country Music Awards, as well as a run of recent shows that saw most of the dates, including two back to back London shows at Bush Hall, sell out.

 

The upcoming 2015 tour will see the band appearing in Bristol, Manchester, Aberdeen, Dublin and Cardiffamongst others. The band will also play their biggest headline show to date at the Islington Assembly Hall in London on March 26th.

 

Ward Thomas’s debut album ‘From Where We Stand’ debuted in the Top 20 of the mid-week album chart the day after it’s release, entered the iTunes Country Chart at No.1 and sat at the top of the OCC Country Artist Album Chart for 5 weeks.

 

With a current total of three singles garnering BBC Radio 2 playlist support (including two A-lists), the arrival of their debut album in July was preceded by an appearance on BBC Breakfast News as well as interviews and features in the Sunday Times Culture, The Times and The Independent amongst others. With festival appearances in the summer including Maverick, Jamie Oliver and Alex James’s Big Feastival and Radio 2’s Hyde Park event, it is increasingly evident that Ward Thomas are going from strength to strength, heralding a new age for Country Music in the UK.

 

“On raw talent alone (Ward Thomas) could give the best of Nashville a run for its money” The Independent, October 2014

 

Ward Thomas are 20-year old twin sisters Catherine and Lizzy Ward Thomas from Hampshire. Whilst in sixth form, a rough demo of the Ward Thomas track “Footnotes” found its way into the hands of two respected Nashville session musicians, leading to the recording of their debut album ‘From Where We Stand’. One listen to the vocal cadences and close harmonies on this award winning debut album and Nashville and Hampshire suddenly don’t seem all that far apart.

 

Ward Thomas March 2015 Tour dates are as follows:

 

MARCH
11 BRISTOL THE FLEECE
12 SOUTHAMPTON MO’CLUB
14 BIRMINGHAM LIBRARY

15 NOTTINGHAM RESCUE ROOMS

’68 DEBUTS NEW MUSIC VIDEO

UK TOUR BEGINS 5th DECEMBER
Debut album ‘In Humor And Sadness’ is out now

Sound maestros ’68 have debuted another brand new music video today for the song ‘Track 5′. The unveiling of these visuals comes just a couple of weeks before ’68 hit the UK on their second tour here this year. You’ll definitely be wanting to catch the duo’s incendiary live show.

DECEMBER
5 Nottingham Rock City Basement
6 Plymouth The Underground
7 Leeds Key Club
8 Glasgow Classic Grand
9 Birmingham O2 Academy 3
10 Newcastle O2 Academy 2
11 Manchester Sound Control
12 Brighton Audio
13 Bristol Exchange
14 London Borderline
15 York Fibbers
16 Southampton Joiners
17 Oxford O2 Academy 2

’68 debuted at #1 on the Billboard New Artist Chart with the release of ‘In Humor and Sadness’ earlier this year. Rock Sound aptly described it as “A great album from a true visionary.” Puregrain Audio offers, “If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like if The Black Keys and Every Time I Die made a love child in the washroom of a Wax Fang concert, ’68 is your answer.” in their 8/10 review. Alternative Press states “What’s ironic about Humor is that despite Scogin’s infatuation with 21st century rock ’n’ roots music, the album is closer in style, decibels and straight-up attitude to Nirvana’s legendary Bleach.”
