GLORY GLORY

 

Glory Glory returns with their latest EP, So Long.

 

Mixed by Grammy nominated producer / mix engineer Justin Gerrish (Vampire Weekend, The Strokes), So Long finds the band drawing on influences that include indie, new wave, and syncopated dance rhythms.

 

From the Nile Rodgers inspired guitars on “Take My Time, to the Radiohead-ready rhythms of “Everybody Lies, the EP showcases the band’s continuing capacity to mold progressive sonic landscapes into a pop framework.

 

From the band’s early days as a group of post-punk delay-pedal junkies to its current sonic infatuations, Glory Glory restlessly accepts the challenge to create music that cannot be confined to a singular genre. Where early reviews drew comparisons to Dischord Records bands, arty indie acts and even Canadian prog-rock legends Rush, the group’s recent work echoes current innovators like Grizzly Bear, Caribou, and Twin Shadow.

 

The band play the following UK dates -

 

May 2 - Liverpool – The Brink (Liverpool Sound City)

May 5 - London - The Dublin Castle

May 6 - London - Upstairs at The Garage

May 7 -  London - The Slaughtered Lamb

May 9 - Brighton - The Blind Tiger Club (The Great Escape)

May 10 - Brighton - Green Door Store (The Great Escape)

Characula, the ‘Monster Mol’, releases disturbing new video

Soul sucking, tarantula munching she-demon does the erotically charged ‘Mummy Dance’

(Photography by Martin Julian CSC/Sunnyland Pictures)

Defying explanation and categorisation, Characula is a horror rock goddess with a difference. Currently living in Southern California, she is neither vampire, nor werewolf, mummy nor any other creature known from myth and folklore. Part sci-fi, part horror and all glamour, she-demon Characula is an entity to behold –and hear!

 

When she’s not devouring tarantulas or sucking the souls from the anciently departed, Characula has built herself a reputation as an ardent participant in ménage-a-monsters, scouring the streets for creatures and taking them to her bed. She is a black widow and seducer of B-movie incarnates. A literal lady of the night!

The video for her new song ‘Mummy Dance’ is a startling, frightening introduction to the character, showing the ghoulish temptress in full flow: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wqobt2pAK4k

Uber-eccentric and a progenitor of sizzling sci-fi seduction, Characula is the alter-ego of singer-songwriter Cheri Anaclerio, who is looking to make the rock-horror character into an edgy, memorable reflection of her own spiralling imagination.

It’s a truly unique musical project, produced by renowned rock specialist Dito Godwin (No Doubt, Great White, KISS, Motley Crue). With an album on the way, ‘Mummy Dance’ is our first glimpse into the unknown – a fever dream the likes of which we’ve not seen before.

Rock Goddess Characula Prepares to Horrify the UK This May!

 

One of the most bizarre and unusual acts on the American circuit at the moment, Horror-rock-goddess Characula is bringing the house down in every venue she plays.

And now she is bringing her ultra-unique live show to the UK this May. A spectacle that has to be seen to be believed, Characula defies explanation – an erotically charged, she-demon spinning rock tales of soul stealing and B-Movie monsters.

Her latest Mummy Dance video can be watched here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SRNikva89yY

Neil Cowley Trio

 

announce Touch and Flee autumn tour

 

& release first video, ‘Kneel Down’

 

 


Neil Cowley Trio today announces dates for their forthcoming tour spanning ten concert halls this autumn.   The trio take to the road presenting music from their fifth studio album, Touch and Flee, released June 9th June on Naim Jazz Records. 

 

Today also sees the unveiling of the first video taken from Touch and Flee.  Filmed at RAK studios, Kneel Down is a haunting, compelling three-movement piece whose pulse, power and sweeping majesty sheds light on the new direction of the band.

 

WATCH VIDEO HERE  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wwmlg9wF8a4

 

Touch and Flee marks a defining moment in the evolution of Neil Cowley Trio.  It is their bravest, most daring album to date, spotlighting the ever- increasing brilliance of Cowley as a composer.   With long time band mates,Evan Jenkins on drums and Rex Horan on bass, they present more expansive melodies and longer elegant passages for what they describe as “our concert hall record”.   As always though, Cowley’s power to move through music is on full display.  Here are a collection of tunes best savoured in a darkened room at full volume. They demand attention, but as always, deliver to the listener the most blissful of rides.

 

 

‘Kneel Down’ is available to download instantly when pre-ordering Touch and Flee from  iTunes.  Touch and Flee isreleased on 9th June 2014 on Naim Jazz Records (naimcd206)

Radstewart

Wiccans & Beatlemancers EP out now via Alcopop! Records // STREAM NOW

Currently on tour with Johnny Foreigner

Wiccans & Beatlemancers, the new EP from Cardiff’s Radstewart is available now from Alcopop! Records. Stream HERE.

Having seen their self recorded (on a physics department microphone) debut EP sell out, supporting Sky Larkin on their tour and drawing packed crowds at Green Man, SWN, and Southsea Festival, the band signed to AIM Small Label of the Year Alcopop! Records last year. Their breezy, quick-witted indie-pop has already charmed the likes of Huw Stephens, NME, Noisey, The Line Of Best Fit, DIY and XFM, who’ve all pledged their support for the Cardiff four-piece. Despite their sound drawing comparison to luminaries including Pavement, Weezer and Parquet Courts, their lo-fi, slacker pop is as fresh as it is irresistible.

The band are currently on toure with labelmates Johnny Foreigner. Remaining dates as follows:

22nd The Flapper – Birmingham w/Johnny Foreigner
27th JT Soar – Nottingham w/ Johnny Foreigner
28th Clwb Ifor Bach – Cardiff w/ Johnny Foreigner
29th The Star Inn – Guilford w/ Johnny Foreigner
30th Moles – Bath w/ Johnny Foreigner
31st Borderline – London w/ Johnny Foreigner

April
3rd The Harley – Sheffield w/Johnny Foreigner
4th Shits Freaky Club – Durham TBC w/ Johnny Foreigner
5th Lounge 41 – Workington w/ Johnny Foreigner

Press quotes

“Early lo-fi recordings have earned this four piece a reputation as the British Parquet Courts, but there’s a load more melody and pathos to these Cardiff-based beta-males.” NME
“They’re making lo-fi and DIY noises without sounding forced, without an apparent conscious desire to do so. It sounds genuine, and they sound like they’re having fun.” The Line Of Best Fit
“… full of dry wit, and bold declarations primarily influenced by Parquet Courts.” DIY
“Essentially, they’re all-round winners, ‘Insane Parties’ sounding like the gossip-fuelled comedown session in your mate’s bedroom on Sunday morning.” Noisey
“The intricate wit makes the marriage of the sounds become clear” – Rock Sound
“Ragged and raw, Radstewart’s effortlessly off kilter, hopelessly surreal songwriting seeps into every pore.” Clash
“… they pull off the nigh on impossible task of making standoffish slacker rock sound compelling and full of emotions”HMV

CHRISTINA MARTIN

ANNOUNCES DEBUT UK TOUR

NEW SINGLE ‘WATER IT’ OUT 10 FEBRUARY 2014

Taken from the album Sleeping with a Stranger – UK Impact date February 24

 

‘Sleeping with a Stranger does all the right things in all the right places

Tim Merricks – Americana UK.com

 

Christina Martin has been developing her reputation in Canada for strong song-writing and timeless story-telling via her melodic Americana/Country-pop songs over the last several years. Winner of the 2012 ‘Female Recording of the Year’ at the Nova Scotia Music Awards and an East Coast Music Award Winning artist, her song-writing reflects the emotional highs and lows that we all experience as we travel the road of life. Christina’s vocal style is romantic yet ultimately wistful, reminiscent of the music she grew up with including Lucinda Williams, The Jayhawks and Wilco.

 

Water It, is the lead single from her award winning album and the perfect song to introduce UK audiences to one of Nova Scotia’s most beloved musical exports. Water It reflects on the light and shade of loving relationships in its lyrics and is typical of an artist who makes observations of life her stock in trade.  It’s also the perfect song to inspire us as we head into the new year with its message of ‘Come On, Step Up’ Telling us that we ‘can do anything we want to in this life!’

 

Christina lives out the inspiration offered in her music too, by stepping up and taking her music around the world independently. As Americana UKrecently noted, ‘she is in demand – increasingly noticeable this side of the Atlantic.’ Christina has really earned her stripes with tireless touring across Canada and more recently in Europe where audiences and publications such as Rolling Stone (Germany) have taken to her alt -country inspired kitchen table confessions.

 

The UK gets its first chance to see and hear Christina Martin live in concert early in 2014 when she tours in England for the first time including aLondon show at The Slaughtered Lamb.  Travelling with her on this run of dates is respected guitar and lap/pedal steel player Dale Murray (The Guthries, Cuff The Duke).  Murray’s playing can be heard throughout Martin’s recordings and he is an acknowledged virtuoso of the guitar as evidenced by his playing and a sponsorship from Dusenberg Guitars.

 

The February dates will be an ethereal acoustic/electric affair taking Christina Martin to Brighton, Cambridge and Sheffield along with other dates – 11 shows in all.
