Artist: Justin Robertson’s Deadstock 33’s
Release: Everything Is Turbulence
Label: Skint Records
Genre: Dance – Trip Hop

Everything is Turbulence. A statement founded by a lack of certainty at the modern world. A non-clinical perspective that takes on a slightly outer worldly feel as attempts by states to co-define the likes of genetic theory seem uncertain and unjustifiable.

Justin Robertson’s Deadstock 33s 2nd studio album, Everything Is Turbulence is a strike back at a noisy confusion that often penetrates electronic music, by marrying primitive electronic sounds with a warm & raw feel. As a vehicle for JRs artistic outlook on the world, which draws in over two decades of first hand influence and inspiration, Deadstock 33s has found the DJ/Producer/Artist in an empowering position for self expression.

Artist: Skylar Spence
Release: Prom King
Label: Carpark
Genre: Alternative

When Ryan DeRobertis announced the name change of his project from Saint Pepsi to Skylar Spence, there was no indication of any stylistic departure, though the change arrived with a musical shift toward faster tempos and more pristine production. Whereas Saint Pepsi had often used decades-old boogie, disco, and new wave as grist for the sampling mill, Skylar Spence is intent on trafficking more overtly in those genre aesthetics through his own production techniques and vocal contributions. With Prom King, DeRobertis reorients his music for his new full-band live act and winds up with an album full of tight and enveloping dance tunes.

 

 

 

Artist: The Spills
Release: Collecting Dust
Label: Alcopop!
Genre: Indie Rock

 

The Spills may have been Yorkshire’s best kept secret in 2014, but it’s all kicking off for the Wakefield indie-rock 4-piece, who have signed not only to Alcopop! Records, but also Wakefield taste-makers Philophobia, with new album ​Collecting Dust​ set to drop on September 25th…

A rough-edged thing of beautiful simplicity, ​Collecting Dust​deftly blends youthful rawness with polished guitar pop sensibility, rewarding repeat listens with added nuance…

Artist: Tellison

Release: Hope Fading Nightly
Label: Alcopop
Genre: Indie Pop

On September 18th, TELLISON will release their brand new (3rd) studio album ”Hope Fading Nightly’ through Alcopop Records. alongside an intimate set of UK headline dates around the album release. It’s a true return to form, and an album as reflective as it is full of those wonderful pop bangers Tellison are so well known for… Truly this is their best yet.

 

 

Artist: Brolin
Release: Nightdriving
Label: Megastomo Records
Genre:  Dance

Next single lifted from the debut album from UK artist Brolin. Brims with shimmering beats and heartfelt melodies, carried by reflections, observations and a yearning nostalgia. Co-produced by Ninja Tune’s Raffertie.

Although the album was written in the comfort of Brolin’s living room, “The Delta” is all about escapism of the mind and the wonders of travel. From the stark realism of northern England to the vibrant heat of Barcelona, experiences and perceptions weave through Brolin’s song writing as he touches upon anxiety, hope, optimism, and the occasional desire to disappear somewhere else.

Artist: Cattle And Cane
Release: Skies
Label: Quiet Crown Recordings
Genre: Pop – Rock

‘Skies’ is the lead single from Cattle & Cane’s stunning debut album ‘Home’. Co-written with Cheyenne Medders and Rebekah Powell in Nashville, Skies effortlessly blends ‘War on Drugs’ licks to a rousing dual vocal chorus, coming across almost Fleetwood Mac-esque at times. The track perfectly demonstrates the quintet’s ability to meld soaring choruses and delicate melodies to everyman lyrics that swerve clichĂ© to create a sense of community and shared experience.

 

 

 

 

Artist: Tony Momrelle
Release: Keep Pushing
Label: Reel People Music
Genre: Funk & Soul

‘You’re time is here,’ wholeheartedly sings Tony Momrelle on the opening track of his towering new album Keep Pushing.

Keep Pushing has been coming. Pieced together over the past two years after the game-changing release of EP Fly forced many to reassess Momrelle’s artistic profile, it is a broad yet revelatory work. As singer, songwriter and co-producer, Momrelle has delivered his clear vision – a vision wedded to contemporary soul as much as it is to soulful music, full stop.

Artist: Leaves’ Eyes

Release: Kings Of Kings
Label: AFM Records
Genre: Rock – Heavy Metal

The list of achievement is long
 And even though the union of vocalist Liv Kristine (one of the genre’s most adored characters who basically invented “Gothic Metal” with her former band Theatre Of Tragedy) and members of Atrocity was promising right away, it went on to exceed all expectations. Today LEAVES’ EYES are one of the most successful symphonic metal bands with a huge worldwide fan-following. The 6th studio album, titled “King Of Kings” now marks the highlight in the band’s history. Again returning to the Norwegian roots, LEAVES’ EYES have woven an elaborate Viking concept story – based on historic events.

Meadowlark release the ‘Dual EP Remixed’ – 3 eclectic reworks of their breakout EP that saw the band gain support across Radio 1, XFM, MTV, Hypemachine, play Glastonbury and step forward as serious ones to watch.
Remixes come from rising producers Samuel, Harry Edwards & The Walton Hoax:
Samuel has given his tropical house treatment to Gabrielle Aplin, Machineheart and GoldRoom, while The Walton Hoax turn ‘Fly’ into shimmering dreampop.

Last on the EP comes the most intriguing rework, courtesy of 20 yr old Harry Edwards. The folky ‘Fire’ is transported to James Blake territory. A split second sample of Kate’s voice is chopped up and manipulated to create the opening melody before the lead vocals enter above a bed of subtle beats, low frequencies and an abundance of space. Tension gradually builds until the song climaxes with a haunting grand piano recorded by Harry, leading us to the cathartic final chorus.

 

Artist: Dorsia
Release: Horatio
Label: Southern Fried Records
Genre: House
