IGGY POP “LOVES MISSING” VIDEO PREMIERE

IGGY POP

“LOVES MISSING” VIDEO PREMIERE LIVE NOW

FREE OUT NOW ON LOMA VISTA RECORDINGS

On the sparse, measured ‘Loves Missing,’ he sings, ‘Loves screaming, loves missing,’ and you can feel his pain” Rolling Stone


Following his electrifying performance of “James Bond” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and fascinating conversation with Jim Jarmusch at 92Y, Iggy Pop has now unveiled the video for “Loves Missing” from his new album Free, viewable now at: https://found.ee/LovesMissingVid

Directed by Simon Taylor, the clip for “Loves Missing” was shot on location at Sweat Records in Miami with a special appearance by Ale Campos from Las Nubes, Miami. Like the song itself, the “Loves Missing” video reveals another dimension of what it means to be Free, putting a visual face to raw emotions laid bare via close-ups of Iggy intoning, “She’s thinking about something we all need/All need/Clock’s ticking, not giving her room to breathe/To breathe/Loves screaming/Loves missing/Loves screaming, so quietly and in pain/Loves absent, it’s failing her once again, again.”

Free was released September 6 by Loma Vista Recordings. Featuring collaborators Leron Thomas (trumpet/keys/songwriting) and Noveller (guitar/vocals), the album holds a singular place in Iggy’s canon—and continues to generate appropriately unique praise: The New York Times called the title track “atmospheric and elusive” and more recently praised “Sonali” as “a rushing, fluttering, quasi-waltz that hurries toward an undisclosed destination, whimsical but driven.”Rolling Stone lauded the album’s “certain restrained swagger. The guitars simmer, never boil. The bass swells, and the keyboards shimmer behind him. And all the while, Pop flexes his baritone, expressing himself more clearly than perhaps ever before.” And the Washington Post noted “Iggy haunts these new songs like a dignified spirit — which might make Free an exposition on death, or transcendence, or both.”

Free is available for purchase at https://found.ee/IG_Free

BROKEN BELLS: “GOOD LUCK”

BROKEN BELLS 

“GOOD LUCK” – NEW SONG AVAILABLE NOW

JAMES MERCER & DANGER MOUSE AT WORK ON THIRD BROKEN BELLS ALBUM

Brian Burton (aka Danger Mouse) and James Mercer (of The Shins), collectively known as Broken Bells, have released their newest song “Good Luck.” The song is available now for purchase and streaming across all platforms through Danger Mouse’s 30th Century Records, via AWAL.  

Much like last year’s “as adventurous as always” (Stereogumstandalone single “Shelter,” “Good Luck” bears the unmistakable sonic signature of Broken Bells unveiled on 2010’s eponymous debut and 2014’s After The Disco—in other words, the instantly recognizable audible fingerprints of both Mercer and Burton melded into something entirely other. As with neo-classic Broken Bells tracks including “The High Road” and “Holding On For Life,” “Good Luck” is completed by deceptively apocalyptic sonic and lyrical imagery that is actually more rooted in present day reality than any dystopian future.  

In other news, it can now be confirmed that Mercer and Burton have reconvened in the studio and are hard at work on a third Broken Bells album.  No release date has been set for this first collection of new Broken Bells material since 2014. 

Contacted for comment, Broken Bells replied collectively: 
“As with ‘Shelter,’ we wanted to release ‘Good Luck’ while it felt timely and reflective of specific discussions between the two of us, questioning the state of things, as we do…  

Both of us are constantly working on music at any given time, yet we always drift back to one another as Broken Bells. When it happens naturally, it happens—and right now it’s happened in the form of writing and recording sessions for the third Broken Bells album.”

OUT OCTOBER 25 ON MATADOR RECORDS
PRE-ORDERS LIVE NOW

“One of the project’s most impressive lineup of players”  —THE NEW YORK TIMES

Ending a 16-year hiatus since its last installment, the most mythical, longest running rock n roll mixtape odyssey in existence, Desert Sessions will return this October with the most ambitious entries yet in its expansive and elusive catalog: Vols. 11 & 12 (a/k/a respectively as Arrivederci Despair and Tightwads & Nitwits & Critics & Heels) will be released October 25th on Matador Records. A limited edition first vinyl pressing will include a one of a kind custom mix & match body swap booklet. Exclusive merchandise bundles are available for pre-order now at: https://desertsessions.ffm.to/vols11and12

Vols. 11 & 12 were recorded mostly in a six-day span in December 2018 at Rancho De La Luna studios in Joshua Tree, CA, with Queens of the Stone Age founder and Desert Sessions ringleader/producer Joshua Homme enlisting a cast of players including:

Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top)
Stella Mozgawa (Warpaint)
Jake Shears (Scissor Sisters)
Mike Kerr (Royal Blood)
Carla Azar (Autolux, Jack White)
Les Claypool (Primus)
Matt Sweeney (Chavez, Superwolf, Endless Boogie)
Matt Berry (What We Do in the Shadows, Toast of London)
Libby Grace
Töôrnst Hülpft

The results are eight new songs that embody the legacy of freedom from expectations and inhibitions that stretches back to 1997, when Homme led a first retreat to the Joshua Tree desert. What began as a casual writing and recording session amongst friends—isolated from daily distractions and comforts—has since become a possibly infinite body of work. Now spanning 12 volumes over the course of two decades (and a total of two documented live performances), The Desert Sessions has featured some of music’s most cherished icons—past players have included Polly Harvey, Mark Lanegan, Josh Freese, Dean Ween, among many others—deliberately removing themselves from their comfort zones and working together to create some of their most relaxed yet challenging work.

For a glimpse into the various players’ reactions to the completed work, check out a Liam Lynch-directed exclusive video interview with Homme at: https://desertsessions.ffm.to/voicemails.

The tracklist for Desert Sessions Vols. 11 & 12 (a/k/a Arrivederci Despair and Tightwads & Nitwits & Critics & Heels) is:

Move Together (lead vocal: Billy F. Gibbons)
Noses in Roses Forever (lead vocal: Joshua Homme)
Far East for the Trees
If You Run (lead vocal: Libby Grace)
Crucifire (lead vocal: Mike Kerr)
Chic Tweetz (vocals: Töôrnst Hülpft, Matt Berry)
Something You Can’t See (lead vocal: Jake Shears)
Easier Said Than Done (lead vocal: Joshua Homme)

CONVERSATIONS WITH NICK CAVE: AN EVENING OF TALK AND MUSIC – NORTH AMERICAN DATES BEGIN THIS FRIDAY

CONVERSATIONS WITH NICK CAVE

An Evening of Talk and Music 

NORTH AMERICAN DATES BEGIN THIS FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 20th

Photo Credit: Daniel Boud

Following a short debut run on the east coast early last year, Nick Cave brings his evenings of talk and music back to North America for a full tour. 

Having recently taken this special show to sold out venues across the world, Cave returns to North America this week. During this series of music and open discussion events, he will take questions direct from the audience on all manner of subjects and perform some of his most beloved songs on piano.

Described by Cave as “an exercise in connectivity”, no subject is sacred and audiences are encouraged to be bold and challenging, confrontational and unafraid.

The relationship between Cave and his audience has always been open and intense, but deepened during his recent shows with the Bad Seeds, inspiring these unconventional and unique evenings of unfiltered, unscripted and unmoderated Q&A. “I thought that a direct conversation with the audience might be valuable – in the recent live shows we have all shown a kind of willingness to open up.”  – Nick Cave

“Between stark, gorgeous performances of key songs like ‘Skeleton Tree’, ‘The Mercy Seat’ and ‘God Is In The House’, Cave was wry, genial and funny as hell.”  Billboard

“This is a striking turnaround when you’re used to seeing icons in all their bombast and mythos. Here, you are getting them unmediated by journalists, you are getting them in an unfiltered and unedited form, you are getting them in a human state without the guise of stardom in full-force.”  Stereogum

“Watching a legend in command of an audience, never quite knowing what would happen next, was a genuine thrill.”  Sydney Morning Herald 

“…tonight’s not about being right. It’s about being present, knowable, vulnerable and real. And funny. Always that.”  The Guardian

“A complete dismantling of the barriers put in place thanks to his often mysterious image…Nick Cave’s intimate Conversations show is bold, enlightening and completely gripping.”  ABC

NEW LINDEMANN ALBUM “F & M” OUT NOVEMBER 22 ON CAROLINE

RAMMSTEIN SINGER TILL LINDEMANN
AND PETER TÄGTGREN (PAIN, HYPOCRISY) SET TO RELEASE
THE NEW LINDEMANN ALBUM “F & M”
ON NOVEMBER 22nd

FIRST SINGLE “STEH AUF” OUT NOW

© Jens Koch

LINDEMANN, the second coming: the German-Swedish power duo Till Lindemann (Rammstein frontman) and Peter Tägtgren (mastermind behind legendary metal bands Pain and Hypocrisy) are set to unleash the second LINDEMANN album on the 22nd of November. In this renewed collaboration, the duo takes some unfamiliar and sometimes unexpected paths.

Their first common effort “Skills In Pills“ reached Gold status in Germany and was entirely in English. On this second opus the rules have changed: German lyrics sung by Till Lindemann’s unmistakable voice are set in an intense and unique musical composition.

The starting point of these new LINDEMANN songs was a collaboration between Till Lindemann and the Hamburg Thalia Theater in the context of a modern adaptation of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale “Hänsel & Gretel”, which addresses topics such as fear, hope, poverty, abundance, cannibalism or death. 

Five songs from this critically-acclaimed play have been supplemented with six brand new masterpieces to form the impressive new studio work from LINDEMANN.

The first single “Steh auf” was released on Friday, September 13th. The video for this spellbinding song was created by the renowned music video director Zoran Bihac (who worked on previous RAMMSTEIN and LINDEMANN videos). The film was shot in Kazakhstan and one of the main characters is played by a fellow countryman Tägtgrens, the Hollywood star Peter Stormare (“Fargo”).

The album “F & M“ contains 11 tracks and will be released on the following formats:

– Standard Edition (6-panel digipack)
– Special Edition (deluxe hardcover book)
– 2LP (180gr black vinyl)
– Digital Formats

“F & M“ (Album) // Release Date: Nov 22nd 2019
1. Steh auf
2. Ich weiß es nicht
3. Allesfresser
4. Blut
5. Knebel
6. Frau & Mann
7. Ach so gern
8. Schlaf ein
9. Gummi
10. Platz Eins
11. Wer weiß das schon
Only included on the special edition, 2LP and digital formats:
12. BONUS TRACK: Mathematik (Original Version)
13. BONUS TRACK: Ach so gern (Pain Version)

STEH AUF (Single) // Release Date: Sept 13th 2019
1. Steh auf – 2. Steh auf (Trivium Remix)

Sold Out ‘Underplay’ Show at Oslo, Hackney Tonight

Supergrass have today announced they are reforming for a theatre tour of the UK, Europe and North America in 2020. The thirteen date tour will kick off in Paris on 4th February, before the UK leg culminates with a huge show at London’s Alexandra Palace on 6th March 2020. Tickets go on sale Friday 13th September from 9:00 am. 

The seminal British group declared their improbable comeback on Friday night (6th September) in a suitably bold manner, taking to the stage unannounced at Glastonbury Pilton Party to rip through a mesmerizing Greatest Hits set, including Caught By The Fuzz, Moving, Pumping On Your Stereo and Alright. 

Danny Goffey says: ‘Everything aligned for us to make this happen for 2020. It was the first time that we collectively felt the buzz to get back in a room together and play the songs. We’re extremely excited to get out there and bring a bit of Supergrass joy to all our fans… and their extended families.’

Tonight Supergrass will also play an intimate show at Oslo, Hackney. Announced on Saturday (7th September) in the aftermath of their electrifying Pilton set, the tiny underplay show sold out in a matter of seconds as fans scrambled for a chance to see the band in the most intimate of confines ahead of 2020’s tour. 

A career spanning Best-of package ‘Supergrass: The Strange Ones 1994 – 2008’ is also unveiled today. This comprehensive box set, marking the 25th anniversary of I Should Coco, is a celebration of Supergrass’ incredible career and is released on BMG on 24th January. It contains their 6 original albums on picture disc LP and CD, bonus CDs of unreleased live material, B-sides, remixes, rarities, studio out-takes, demos, acoustic versions, oddities, new mixes, a deluxe book, posters and button badges. It also features over 6 hours of previously unreleased audio material. The boxset contains 5 previously unreleased instant grat tracks. The first, unveiled today is a cover of The Police’s ‘Next To You’, a gloriously kinetic trademark blast of howling vocals, harmonies and raucous guitars.

Formed in Oxford UK in 1993, the Brit, Q, NME and Ivor Novello-winning outfit released their Mercury-nominated No.1 debut album I Should Coco in 1995. Fourth single, ‘Alright’, was a pop masterpiece and became a massive hit, catapulting the band to global success. Supergrass subsequently released another five acclaimed studio albums: In It For The Money (1997), Supergrass (1999), Life On Other Planets (2002), Road To Rouen (2005), Diamond Hoo Ha (2008) as well as top 5 best of, Supergrass Is 10 (2004). Other top 20 singles include: ‘Lenny’, ‘Going Out’, ‘Richard III’, ‘Sun Hits The Sky’, ‘Pumping On Your Stereo’, ‘Moving’ and ‘Grace’. They scored an unbroken run of five Top 10 albums, among them three platinum sellers generating millions of worldwide sales spawning ten Top 20 singles, and scored the biggest-selling debut for Parlophone since The Beatles. Supergrass split in 2010, though the band members have gone on to lead successful solo careers: Gaz Coombes released solo albums ‘Here Come The Bombs’ in 2012, ‘Matador’, 2015 and ‘World’s Strongest Man’, 2018; Mick Quinn has been playing with his own group, DB Band, and been a member of Swervedriver since 2015, and Danny Goffey has released solo material including album ‘Schtick’ in 2018.
