Country artist Andy Meadows delivers new swing single ‘Never Be The Same’

IMG_4376 small

Crack yourself open a bottle of Lone Star we’re heading to Texas for this next artist, a 6ft5 swanky crooner by the name of Andy Meadows.

His latest swing single ‘Never Be The Same’ is a sparkly upbeat number in the style of Sinatra centred around being love-struck. The vocals are superb and the live band deliver some infectious energy that’ll make you wish you were drinking in some vibrant jazz bar.

A multi-talented musician, Andy has previous been involved heavily with country music, having grown up on a country radio station owned by his father. Steel guitars and fiddles give the track a tasty tinge of old-fashioned Americana.

Lorde on taking a break from music: ‘I almost forgot I had a career’

Lorde recently took a break from music that was so long she “almost forgot” about her career.

The singer has been kept busy ever since her hit track ‘Royals’ shot to fame in 2012.

However, the New Zealander returned home recently to spent around three months out of the spotlight.

This led to Lorde getting so accustomed to time off that she nearly forgot about her stardom.

The 18-year-old told Dazed: “I had three months off. It was summer in New Zealand and I just went on all these road trips and did heaps of rock walking.

“I found the best dive spots, did some great fishing and saw some orca whales. It was amazing. Just lying in the ocean in front of my house and being like, ‘Life!’

”It was weird, because I almost forgot I had a career, something that I filled my days with. I was like, ‘Oh s**t!’ because all my friends were going off to university and I was like, ‘I need to figure out what I’m doing because I’ve been cruising for a long time…Oh, I have something that I can do!’.

“I had a bit of a complex because I was like, ‘S**t, it’s time!’.”

Watch Lorde in action below:

Former Deptford market traders set to make Jason Statham pop sensation.

Shirt-White 03logo

BOOZE!?

BEERS!

The next step is to make sure Jason knows about the release and this is the challenge with his new movie ‘SPY’ on the horizon , it is now down to the Men with Ven to do all they can to set up a meeting with the movie icon, they have numerous plans in the pipeline from flashmobs to lookalikes but all the guys really want is the thumbs up from the man himself, they have therefore put together a tribute video with which they intend to reach out and attract his attention and from there who knows ! maybe even get him to appear in the real video and truly help Mr.Statham to hit the pop charts and the movie box office charts at the same time.

Check out the video: 

‘A few weeks ago we found ourselves back in the neighbourhood at the Birds Nest. After a couple of beers Carl had the bright idea of conducting an informal survey in the pub asking, who was the greatest British Actor of the last 50 years? We were pleased and surprised that the most popular choice that evening was the king of market-stall and marshall arts – Jason Statham. Carl was intrigued but not completely convinced that this was a fair representation of the voice of the people and so conducted some further research in the area. In all, after getting over 350 responses, he found that Statham was more popular than Michael Caine , Sean Connery and Sir Laurence Olivier put together.’

Go Primitive ready for impact with new EP ‘100 Ways’

PRimage

Booze?

Beer!

That Go Primitive are associated with such names goes a long way to proving their credentials as they climb the independent music ladder. They have already supported The Subways, We Are The Ocean and others, getting a fantastic response from the big crowds along the way. This, along with the fact that they can count The Editors as fans, has given Go Primitive great confidence that they are on the right track.

It’s that confidence which has given rise in large part to the ‘100 Ways’ EP. In the band’s own words:

“The E.P is a show of our strength to overcome the struggles and constant roadblocks put in front of many bands at our stage. We hope that after countless efforts, this will be the E.P that makes our name stand up to the bigger acts out there and pushes us further in our musical journey.”

https://soundcloud.com/goprimitiveuk/breathe-in-bleed-out-100_ways/s-GJ3O8

Always working hard on new material, their next release sees them on rollicking form with new EP ‘100 Ways’, a five song collection inspired by the many obstacles placed in front of independent musicians. Lead single ‘Breathe in, Bleed out’ sees them on typical top form, showing Go Primitive’s rock credentials in all their glory and going all out to bust through those obstacles…

A perfect blend of four personalities all fighting for the same goal, the current line up of Go Primitive has moved through various iterations to land in its final configuration. With each band member bringing their own musical background and experiences from different bands and projects, this is one band with all the tools and the grit to break through in 2015.

Anthony Tullo new country-rock single – ‘Borderline’

Hugely creative and multi-talented, Anthony is returning to the music industry after some years away from the business,  first deciding to pursue his song writing again when a self-written soundtrack to his own independent film captured attention. The movie itself went on to win awards in Canada and is now available globally online, while the result of his renewed song writing confidence in the stellar new rock single ‘Borderline’.

Booze?

Beer

Revered by critics, radio and writers in his native Canada, and also invited to play some of the country’s most prestigious venues, Anthony Tullo’s reputation is already cemented and still growing on the other side of the Atlantic.

PRimage

His first chance to break into the industry saw Anthony catch the eye of a notoriously difficult to please A&R at Warners over a decade ago, but his progress was halted by the tragic events of Sepember 11th, 2001 in New York. Following that day, the promising start to his career was halted by a label who (understandably) had other priorities, leading to Anthony Tullo leaving the industry for a time.

But now he’s back, a self-made musician with a point to prove. And if anyone disagrees with him, they should probably know one more thing – he funds his music career by competing and training others in the arts of Brazilian Ju-Jitsu and Mixed Martial Arts.

This is one independent artist who needs to be taken seriously – in every sense.

Yeti Love want to take you down their ‘Lonely Road’ with new single

Booze?

Beer!

The pair have labelled their unique combination as ‘alt-rogue-folk-rock’, which is as fitting a description as any. Based in South London, they have been playing together since 2012 and ‘Lonely Road’ is the latest fruit of their labours.

In the years since their foundation, Yeti Love have been slowly building in following an momentum thanks to their thoughtful songwriting and eye catching live show, which has earned them some great online press for their work up until this point. The buzz is building, and in ‘Lonely Road’ they have the right vehicle to continue on that journey.

PRimage

Named thanks to enduring love/fear of the vaunted mythical creature, Yeti Love is the musical moniker of songwriters Peter Hamilton and Dave Sears – a folk duo who view the genre as this generation’s punk music, able to articulate about issues and press all the right buttons in all the wrong places.

Hamilton is also influenced by his own ancestry, being half Spanish and, at a young age, falling in love with the folk traditions of home town Galicia. Having started out as a drummer before expanding his own musical horizons, his love of rhythm was informed by this specific branch of celtic roots music. Married to Sears’ intricate, multi-instrumental approach, the result is a hybrid sound unlike any other act on the circuit today.

Strange Fiction launches ‘Tease Her’ as first single from new album

Single precedes official release of new album ‘Orange’

 

A Barcelona based band who all grew up in households surrounded by music, it’s little wonder that the four members of Strange Fiction ended up writing and recording their own music. With varied musical backgrounds, their new album ‘Orange’ is a heady blend of genres, particularly rock, indie and pop, with influences as diverse as Led Zeppelin, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Incubus, Michael Jackson and Tracy Chapman. The track is an unusual mix, but one that comes into the neat pop groove and vocal of lead single ‘Tease Her’ which gives way to a huge rocking chorus. The track – written about a misunderstanding over a girl at a party which may or may not have resulted in a band member being soaked by beer – is a stellar introduction to the raw sound of the band.

https://strangefiction.bandcamp.com/track/tease-her

Engineered and recorded in Spain by Tomàs Robisco and mastered in London by Andy “Hippy” Baldwin from Metropolis Studios respectively, the album is a triumph, capturing perfectly the edge that the band works to bring to their live sound.

The songs are specially designed to play well live as well as in the recordings, and if you like what you’re hearing above then keep an eye on the band’s social media – they’ll soon be releasing live, acoustic videos of their songs so music fans all around the world will be able to see the quality of this young band for themselves.

‘Tease Her’ is due for release May 18th with the album to follow on June 1st.

THE WINDMILLS PROJECT – DEATH DISCO EP (STATION K RECORDS)

Booze?

TWP (DEATH DISCO) Front Cover

Beer!

Coming Soon on limited edition 10” vinyl only, The Death Disco EP represents the first of 3 x 10” vinyl only Chapters comprising the debut album to be released by The Windmills Project  – a rock opera influenced but not contained by the classics of the genre (Tommy, Quadrophenia) and Nic Roeg’s celluloid masterpiece “The Man Who Fell To Earth.”

There is no Bowie or Sting, no Elton, but a young sorceress lands on Earth nonetheless to document a small world obsessed with, and about to be consumed by, sex, propaganda, powerlust, religious war & social carnage. Is she an archangel of redemption or the darkangel sent to cast the planet down in misery? There’s the rub.
The Death Disco EP is now available to be watched and stripped at YouTube via the Station K channel. Rip it up.

Belle Roscoe – “Gun To My Head”

Booze? Corona.

“Gun To My Head” is the lead single from Belle Roscoe’s second album, “Boom Boom”. out April 20th. It’s a combination, underpinned by flawless sibling vocal harmonies, that tightly fixes their ambition to marry the modern with the classic; an ambition which is more than met with this new album.

Born and raised in Australia, sibling duo Belle Roscoe combine contemporary sounds and production with classic retro song writing styles. They have been described as ‘a cross between Arcade Fire & Fleetwood Mac’ but in truth this description does them a disservice. In their varied, melodic music, you can hear many influences, including the eclectic likes of Neil Young, Bowie, Springsteen, Elbow and Fleet Foxes.

Cina_01The new album was written in Paris (recorded between Belgium, Malta and Paris) and is heavily influenced by the joys and hardships of living and writing so far from home – as summed up perfectly on album track ‘Paris II’, itself a follow up to ‘Paris’ from their self-titled debut album. Life in the creative, romantic French capital tended to blend moments of beauty with those of struggle, mostly in financial matters and in dealing with music industry types. Still, the pair clung on to their lives in the city and drew from it a rich vein of song writing inspirations.

Now back in Melbourne, the exciting but humbling experience has resulted in a new maturity to their music, and a new perspective on life in general. The new album ‘Boom Boom’ is produced by Luuk Cox (Shameboy, Girls in Hawaii, Stromae & MLCD), and the time will soon be right to share it with the wider world.

Over the years Belle Roscoe have either supported or played alongside many major Australian artists including Jet, Cat Empire, Husky, Wolf Mother, James Reyne, Killing Heidi and more, as well playing countless festivals and sold out shows in both Europe and Australia. Hard working and genuine in their love of the art, Belle Roscoe are set to make 2015 a breakthrough year.

And, if you’re in any doubt as to their pedigree, they even have a live appearance on TV soap Neighbours to their name. How many up and coming bands can say that?
