Wilsen's Hushed And Heart-Racing Debut Full Length 'I Go Missing In My Sleep' Out Today On Secret City Records

 

CD Release Show At Brooklyn's Union Pool May 2 + Shows With Patrick Watson, Diane Birch
"Don't mistake volume for impact, as Wilsen is capable of drawing blood with swift lyrical jabs that strike chords you didn't see coming" - Stereogum
Mesmerizing Brooklyn trio Wilsen today release their full length debut ‘I Go Missing In My Sleep’ (Secret City Records).  The album has been met with praise from NPR, Vice Noisey, Stereogum (who are also hosting an exclusive album stream now) and more.  A hometown CD release show is set for Tuesday May 2 at Brooklyn’s Union Pool followed by an acoustic set at Brooklyn’s Rough Trade store in the SONOS listening room May 3.  This weekend they link up with Patrick Watson in Canada for a sold-out show, and will join a UK run with Diane Birch later in May.  Wilsen’s video for “Garden” was premiered by VEVO, songs have been spun on WFUV, WXPN, KCSN and other key radio stations, and they have upcoming appearances scheduled for WNYC Soundcheck, Echoes and more.
Stream ‘I Go Missing In My Sleep’ here:
QUOTES:
"A major revelation." - NPR Music
"Softly devastating.” - Stereogum  

"It manages to be both soothing and disquieting. At points it sounds like it’s running backwards. Sometimes like a memory tantalizingly out of reach.” - Noisey
“[A] full-length rumination of quiet devastation.” – CBC
“Slow, Spartan songs with finger-picked guitar, heart-beat drums and ghostly narratives... Lovely.” – MOJO
“A twilight escape from the unrelenting rush of everyday living.” – Popmatters
“Big and bright, Wilsen’s debut battles against the hardest of nights that turn into mornings, and comes out the other side feeling truly defiant.” - DIY
“I Go Missing In My Sleep pays out higher dividends with repeated and closer listens… Wilsen has thrust their own marker in the sand with this debut and given themselves a wealth of directions in which to pivot toward for the future.” - The Line of Best Fit
Wilsen is fronted by Tamsin Wilson and joined by Drew Arndt on bass and Johnny Simon on guitar. The trio burst onto the independent music scene in 2013 with the self-released double-EP ‘Sirens,’ and 2014’s EP ‘Magnolia.’ Tours with Daughter, Matthew E White, San Fermin and shows with London Grammar soon followed. Wye Oak remixed a song for the ‘Magnolia’ remix EP along with Sun Glitters, Death Vessel and White Hinterland. Tamsin has lent her vocals to Honne's "Coastal Love" single and her vocal line is used in a SBTRKT song. In 2016, the self-released singles "Garden" and "Centipede" grew quickly on streaming sites. "Garden" is now at over 3.5 million streams while "Centipede" is over 1.1 million streams across platforms.

KAMASI WASHINGTON’S “TRUTH” DEBUTS TODAY


KAMASI WASHINGTON’S “TRUTH” DEBUTS TODAY
ONE OF SIX MOVEMENTS FROM HARMONY OF DIFFERENCE, A NEW EP SET FOR RELEASE IN FULL THIS SUMMER

SIGNS WITH YOUNG TURKS GLOBALLY
Avant-garde jazz titan Kamasi Washington today debuts “Truth,” the sixth movement from Harmony of Difference, a new EP set for release this summer. The EP is the first new music from Washington since his universally acclaimed 2015 debut album The Epic, and will be released via Young Turks. Washington has signed to the iconic London label, the home of The xx, Sampha, FKA Twigs and more, worldwide. 

“Truth” is accompanied by a new short film from director A.G. Rojas, watch/listen here.

Harmony of Difference, an original six-movement suite, premiered as part of this year’s Whitney Biennial alongside a film by Rojas also featuring artwork by Washington’s sister Amani Washington

Harmony of Difference explores the philosophical possibilities of the musical technique known as “counterpoint,” which Washington defines as “the art of balancing similarity and difference to create harmony between separate melodies.”

Washington’s suite includes visual elements married to the musical works and draws voraciously on jazz for its foundation. Each of the first five movements is its own unique composition. “Truth,” the sixth movement, fuses all five compositions into one simultaneous performance. 

Echoing this fusion, Amani Washington created five paintings focused on raw shapes and colors, each inspired by one of the first five movements of the suite. Amani then combined these paintings to create a sixth: an abstract depiction of a human face. 

The film, directed by A.G. Rojas and presented in partnership with WeTransfer Studios, brings the metaphoric ideas found in both the music and paintings to life. While still quite abstract, it focuses on the harmony found in people from South Central and East Los Angeles and shows the beauty in their differences.

Beyond the artistic impulse to expand the possibilities within counterpoint, Washington wanted to create something that opened people’s minds to the gift of diversity. In his own words, “my hope is that witnessing the beautiful harmony created by merging different musical melodies will help people realize the beauty in our own differences.”

Lovely Creatures: The Best of Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds 1984 – 2014

 Lovely Creatures
The Best of Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds 1984 – 2014
Out May 5th 2017
NEW DVD CLIP
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0qmzr53-MGg
Hiding All Away – Lovely Creatures: The Best of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds DVD
“There are some people out there who just don’t know where to start with The Bad Seeds. Others know the catalogue better than I do! This release is designed to be a way into three decades of music making. That’s a lot of songs. The songs we have chosen are the ones that have stuck around, for whatever reason. Some songs are those that demand to be played live. Others are lesser songs that are personal favorites of ours. Others are just too big and have too much history to leave out. And there are those that didn’t make it, poor things. They are the ones you must discover by yourselves.” Nick Cave
Lovely Creatures is the most comprehensive overview of the recorded work of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds to date. Spanning thirty years of music from their debut album From Her To Eternity through to Push The Sky Away their 15th studio album, the collection navigates one of the most exhilarating, idiosyncratic and inventive bodies of work created in contemporary music.
Included are long-standing live favorites “Stagger Lee” and “The Mercy Seat”, their hit single from 1995 “Where The Wild Roses Grow” through to recent fan favorites “Jubilee Street” and “We No Who U R”. There are songs that newcomers may only know from their appearance on film and television soundtracks, notably “O Children” (Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows Pt. I)  and the ubiquitous “Red Right Hand”, most recently familiar to fans of the series Peaky Blinders.
The album was compiled by Nick Cave and founding member Mick Harvey, with help from the current Bad Seeds. Band members past and present raided their personal archives to provide previously unseen photos and memorabilia which have been collected into a beautiful hardcover book, along with a series of original essays. The book is available as part of the limited edition ‘Super Deluxe’ album collection that also comes with a two hour DVD containing rare and unseen archive footage. Lovely Creatures is available in four formats, all featuring personal and rare photographs of the band:  Standard CD, Triple LP, Deluxe 3CD with DVD and the Super Deluxe Limited Edition package.
Lovely Creatures was originally intended for release in 2015. Since its postponement the band have recorded and released their highly acclaimed 16th studio album Skeleton Tree.

Ryan Adams’ Prisoner was released February 17, debuting #3 on the U.S. album chart, #1 on the Billboard Rock Albums chart, and generating wave after wave of the most effusive critical praise of Adams’ career. NEW YORK MAGAZINE (“Genius…the best thing he’s put out in a decade”), ROLLING STONE (“Personal and urgent…close to the magnum opus of his dreams”), ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY (“the poet laureate of unadulterated heartbreak, a master chronicler of the endless shapes and colors of romantic pain”) and the ASSOCIATED PRESS hailed Prisoner as the multiple Grammy nominee’s best in 10 years or more, while PEOPLE noted “even when his lyrics cling to loss, Adams lets in light with melody,” and The AV CLUB observed “He sounds like he’s savoring how full of life his music is, no matter what it took to make it so. He hasn’t just turned misery into art; he’s turned it into joy.”
Ryan Adams is currently in the midst of the Prisoner world tour, which swings through New York next week, beginning with a May 1 stop at The Late Show with Stephen Colbert followed by back to back sold out shows at the Beacon Theater May 2 and 3.

Ryan has also been making the festival rounds including Lollapalooza and Shaky Knees, while adding multiple headline shows due to popular demand from St. Paul MN to Dublin.

Pixies Perform "Bel Espirit" on "CONAN"

PIXIES PERFORM "BEL ESPIRIT" ON "CONAN"
LOS ANGELES, CA - (FRIDAY, April 29, 2017) -- Last night, PIXIES performed their new single "Bel Espirit" on "Conan."  Check it out here:  http://to.teamcoco.com/2oOgTyd 

In support of the band's post-reunion sophomore album Head Carrier (Play It Again Sam), Pixies - Black Francis, Joey Santiago, Dave Lovering and Paz Lenchantin - launched Leg One of their 2017 North American tour on April 21 with a first week of sold-out shows and great reviews.

"The Pixies sprinkle magic into a set filled with classic tunes and new songs..."
Orange County Register

"The Pixies' richly rewarding 90-plus minute concert Tuesday night at the Theatre at Ace Hotel was a tale of two eras - a generous helping of songs from their four seminal albums released during Part 1 of their career, and a sampling of their strong new material."
