Gacha ft Natalie Beridze Tba - Send Two Sunsets | Ellenwood

Gacha ft Natalie Beridze Tba - Send Two Sunsets | Ellenwood | MUSIC NEWS | Scoop.it
Following his EPs Remember ("Music of deep intrigue, cloaked in an atmospheric fog" - Resident Advisor) and When The Watchman Saw The Light, Gacha returns to Apollo Records with another contemplative and composed record, his debut album, Send Two Sunsets. As Gacha explains, there is no binding concept behind the album, but there is still a cohesive feel to the music and the impression that this collection represents a certain period of his life. "The album is a collection of tunes built over the years rather than an album with a concept that you try to understand over time. The tracks are all from the last three years and I feel they capture everything that happened around me during this period of my life. Some of the tracks were recorded when I was just starting to make music and some are new songs with a more improvisational process behind their creation." Send Two Sunsets spans many moods and textures - the sparse pads of opening/closing tracks "Abandoned City" and "Blue Distance,"

Bob Boilen of NPR picked the band as one of his Top 10 Discoveries from CMJ and Huffington Post named them one of 25 Artists You Need to Know in 2015, saying: "With the haunting nature of Daughter, soothing bloom of First Aid Kit and stomp-fest peaks of Mumford & Sons, the ladies of Little May are about to have a big year." Little May's sound is created by age-old friends Annie Hamilton, Liz Drummond and Hannah Field, who in just 18 short months have acquired over one million Soundcloud plays, three million Spotify streams and have cracked the Hype Machine top ten list three times.

RODRIGO Y GABRIELA ANNOUNCE SUMMER TOUR + 9 DEAD ALIVE OUT NOW | Ellenwood

RODRIGO Y GABRIELA ANNOUNCE SUMMER TOUR + 9 DEAD ALIVE OUT NOW | Ellenwood | MUSIC NEWS | Scoop.it
Where does musical inspiration come from? Remembering where you started while simultaneously keeping in mind where you are going - which for Mexico's Rodrigo y Gabriela is back on the road this June, performing in large theaters and festivals across the United States. Rodrigo y Gabriela's latest album 9 Dead Alive is an intimate one, recorded as if the band were playing a live gig in your living room. The closest in playing to their breakout 2006 self-titled album, it is also the band's highest Billboard career debut to date, at #22 on the charts. Recorded at their Pacific Coast hideaway in late summer, the album captures the warmth and spontaneity of two great musicians riffing and jamming together; perfectly distilled into nine new songs teeming with desire, elegance and gusto. But just because Rodrigo y Gabriela know how to properly rock out in a living room doesn't mean they haven't also have played for presidents, toured the world many times over, written soundtracks for Hollywood

#EPTICKETGIVEAWAY: The Echo Presents Jenny Lewis at the Echoplex 4/9 | Ellenwood

#EPTICKETGIVEAWAY: The Echo Presents Jenny Lewis at the Echoplex 4/9  | Ellenwood | MUSIC NEWS | Scoop.it
Jenny Lewis returns with her new album, The Voyager, on July 29th. The Los Angeles artist’s first solo LP since 2008’s Acid Tongue, The Voyager is Lewis’s most deeply personal, and her most musically robust. Featuring production work from Ryan Adams, Beck, as well as Lewis and her longtime collaborator Johnathan Rice, The Voyager finds Lewis at her sharp-witted best, singing about her recent life with honesty and incisiveness. And then there’s her voice, which was already a force to be reckoned with, but sounds even richer, more nuanced, more powerful. Lewis says The Voyager was the hardest album she has ever made, documenting her struggle to cope following the death of her estranged father in 2010 and the subsequent break-up of her band, Rilo Kiley. In the three years she worked on it, there were moments she thought she’d never finish. But, more than ever before, she knew she had to. The story is best told in Lewis’s own words:

"With Mick on board, it was the first time we have worked with a producer," says Lewis, "Just having someone else in the room meant we could start bouncing ideas off other people and that was great."

Evermotion's first single, the infectious "Simple Machine," has been hailed by TIME magazine for its "frantic beats and crawling synthesizers." The chiming lullaby of "Long Night" with its aching Ryan Miller falsetto, the shimmering "Endlessly," the distorted steel drums and Bacharach melody of "Doin' It by Myself," the a cappella Beach Boys harmonies in the gently breezy "Lazy Love," the dream-pop of "Expectation," the British Invasion beat of "Gangway," the woozy trombones and whistling of "Never Coming Down" and the Beatle-esque psychedelia of "It Is Just What It Is" shows Guster is still learning new tricks.

As the debut of the Kurt Cobain documentary ‘Montage of Heck’ rapidly approaches, more bits and pieces from the much anticipated flick are popping up online. The latest gem to surface is Kurt Cobain’s unreleased cover of ‘And I Love Her’ by The Beatles. This is so volcanically awesome it’s borderline stupid. Think about it - this previously unearthed recording was sitting in a storage locker collecting dust for years, until director Brett Morgen dug it up.

Ancient Sky Detail New Album Mosaic' Out June 9th on Wharf Cat Records + First Single "Garbage Brain" | Ellenwood | MUSIC NEWS | Scoop.it
Mosaic is a new statement of purpose for Ancient Sky and a record that defines the band as one of rock n' roll's heaviest and most dynamic units. With a collection of Brian Markham's best songs yet, Ancient Sky headed into Future-Past Studios in Hudson, NY with the like-minded Ben Greenberg (Uniform, Mission Hubble, The Men) on board as producer and sound engineer. Mosaic captures the massive scale of Ancient Sky's live sound for the first time pivoting around such heavy themes as loss, hypnosis, escapism, poverty, the pressure to conform to terrifying new technologies and modern consumerism's catalytic contribution to the growing disparity between the haves and the have-nots.

SIVIK - "U Got" | Ellenwood | MUSIC NEWS | Scoop.it
Los Angeles' SIVIK is an artist who's vision is to create music without boundaries. A heavy-hitting LA based songwriter whose work has appeared on the albums of Hot Chelle Rae and Downtown Fiction to name a few, SIVIK is ready to reveal his solo project. His airy tone and candid lyrics combine with the melodic, alternative, beat-ridden music to create a sonically diverse sound. Beginning initially with the song "High" last month, today SIVIK reveals the second track in his Spring Collection "U Got." Where "High" is about the beginning stages of attraction and lust when you first meet someone you're into, "U Got" is about what happens next. "It's basically that feel good, can't stop thinking about, all you want to do is be with your main babe type of song," SIVIK says. "It's the vulnerable side of the human condition we all crave whether we admit to it or not."

Track Review: Institute’s Debut LP, Catharsis + "Perpetual Ebb" | Ellenwood | MUSIC NEWS | Scoop.it
Not to be confused with Gavin Rossdale’s former alternative rock band, Institute, the post-punk band of the same name has a much different tune. The Austin, TX Institute is an anarcho quartet made up of members of Wiccans, Glue, Blotter, and Recide that totes a much more raw sound backed by punk politics. After releasing a demo, a 7-inch and 2014´s EP entitled Salt, the post-punk act is coming out with their first full-length, Catharsis, on June 9th. The much awaited LP will be released through Brooklyn’s Sacred Bones Records. Institute will also be kicking off a tour on April 18th to promote the new album. And what better place to start than Brooklyn? The second show of the tour will be in the band’s hometown—Austin. While past releases have positioned the band in close relations to punk politics, Catharsis leans a little on the mellower side. Still punk, but not as hardcore. Catharsis incorporates everything from melodic acoustic guitar to proto-punk psych into the mix. Issues of

For Chloe Chaidez, frontwoman of the electrifying rock group Kitten, the trajectory from rock fan to rock star began in carpool. “Growing up, my dad had to drive an hour and half every day five days a week to take me to gymnastics,” she recalls. Chloe’s father, a drummer from LA’s early punk scene, used this time to communicate the important things in life to his young daughter: Mott the Hoople, David Bowie, and Led Zeppelin. “We listened to lots of classic rock,” Chloe recalls. “But we also played the new CMJ mixes. This is pre-internet and that’s how you learned about new bands, from little CDs that came with cool magazines. Bands like Sigur Rós, Band of Horses….” With the August 28th release of Kitten’s new EP, CUT IT OUT, Chloe hopes to add her own songs to the tracks blasting out of car stereos across the country.
