Morrissey Announces New Album 'Low in High-School,' Out Nov. 17th on BMG

Morrissey will perform new music at LA's Hollywood Bowl on Nov. 10th
On November 17th, Morrissey will release 'Low in High-School' (BMG), the iconic musician's first studio album since 2014 and his debut for BMG. This new partnership with BMG also marks the launch of Morrissey's new label, Etienne Records. The album will be released digitally and in physical formats: CD, colored vinyl, and limited-edition cassette.
On his 11th studio album, Morrissey's talent for combining political statements and beautiful melodies is more prevalent than ever as he captures the zeitgeist of an ever-changing world. 'Low in High-School' was recorded at La Fabrique Studios in France and Ennio Morricone's Forum Studios in Rome. The record is produced by Joe Chiccarelli (Frank Zappa, The Strokes, Beck, The White Stripes).
On November 10th, Morrissey will return to LA's iconic Hollywood Bowl, where fans will have one of the first opportunities to hear music from 'Low in High-School' in concert along with many of his classic songs. More tour dates and information will be announced soon. General on-sale begins Friday, August 25 starting at 10am PST.
Recognized as one of the most influential artists of all time, Morrissey is widely credited as a seminal figure in the emergence of indie rock and Britpop. After The Smiths, Morrissey achieved greater success as a prolific solo artist. All 10 of his solo albums have entered the Top 10 on the UK album charts, including three entries at No. 1. Releasing his debut solo album 'Viva Hate' in 1988, he has since released a number of critically acclaimed follow-ups, including 'Kill Uncle,' 'Your Arsenal,' and the hugely successful comeback album 'You Are the Quarry' after a five-year hiatus in 2004. In 2013, Morrissey published his record-breaking autobiography on Penguin Classics, immediately topping the best-seller list with literary reviewers hailing it a masterpiece in writing and prose.
Morrissey's music acts as a rite of passage for all who discover alternative music. His lyrics, at times blunt and fearless, other times vulnerable and poignant, continue to resonate with listeners around the world with their unmatched emotional depth and theatrical, poetic delivery. Pitchfork called him "one of the most singular figures in Western popular culture," and the UK's Independent declared, "Most pop stars have to be dead before they reach the iconic status he has reached in his lifetime."
Korda Marshall (EVP of BMG) said of the signing: "There are not many artists around today that can compare to Morrissey. He is an extraordinary talent. He is prodigious, literate, witty, elegant and above all, courageous. His lyrics, humour and melodies have influenced many generations. The music on this new landmark record will speak for itself and we are delighted to welcome him to BMG."
On October 20th, a special five LP box set deluxe version of The Smiths' 'The Queen is Dead' will be released to celebrate what is perhaps the band's most iconic album.

Elvis Costello: Solo! "Hits & Headlines / Waifs & Strays: For the Benefit of The Musician Treatment Foundation"

Elvis Costello: Solo! "Hits & Headlines / Waifs & Strays: For the Benefit of The Musician Treatment Foundation"

Elvis Costello has announced a solo concert to raise start-up funding for The Musician Treatment Foundation, a new Austin-based nonprofit aiming to create a future in which musicians from Austin and beyond can receive restorative treatment regardless of their ability to pay. The two-hour concert, "Hits & Headlines / Waifs & Strays: For the Benefit of The Musician Treatment Foundation" will take place in Austin, TX at the Paramount Theatre on Sunday, October 22. General admission and VIP tickets will go on-sale August 25th and are available at mtfusa.org
Costello says: "It is always a pleasure to play for my friends in Austin and to do so in support of this fine new initiative will only make the occasion more unique. I never like to take my best known songs for granted and prefer to earn the right to sing them again in the company of songs that may be new to your ears but have become extremely vivid to me in my recent performances. As the title of the show suggests, this is an evening of heart and humour. There will be something for everyone."
The Musician Treatment Foundation founder Alton Barron, MD says: "It is a great honor to have Elvis playing such an integral part in this new effort to help musicians and keep the music playing. His grace, humility, and strong belief in our mission is an inspiration to us all. Elvis Costello and Diana Krall are making our hopes for needful musicians an exciting reality!"
The nonprofit Musician Treatment Foundation is devoted to the healthcare needs of professional musicians. This nonprofit is the first of its kind, in design, scope, and breadth, dedicated to the upper limb problems of musicians. The foundation aims to facilitate and fund direct orthopedic specialty care for under- and uninsured musicians, educate the public on how to minimize or prevent musician-specific injuries, conduct and publish research on the unique diagnostic and treatment issues facing all musicians, and build a digital platform and surgeon network to care for musicians regardless of where they are touring in the world. Started by a longtime friend of Costello's, orthopedic surgeon O. Alton Barron MD, it is overseen by a 14-member board of volunteers from the business, music, and healthcare professions including Costello and his wife, musician Diana Krall.

The ethereal and swirling sounds of the ambient-influenced pop of Greece's Keep Shelly in Athens captures the transient feelings of city life and the inevitable passing of time.

With previous releases on labels including Forest Family Records, Transparent Records, Planet Mu, Cascine and Friends of Friends, the duo have already transported their whimsical arrangements and soothing productions across the globe, including performances at Coachella Festival, Parklife Festival, Brighton's The Great Escape Festival and Austin's Fun Fun Fun.
In addition to their own releases they have also done official remixes for Tycho (Ghostly International), Blood Diamonds (4AD), Steve Mason (Domino) and many more...
Their third LP, Philokalia, is coming out on September 29, 2017 via their own record label Athenian Aura Recordings with the Aussie award-winning novelist/poet Jessica Bell as their new singer.
What the press has said in the past:
“They’ll make you happy to feel sad.” -The Guardian
"Keep Shelly in Athens are never anything less than enthralling." -Clash Music
“...downtempo, Balearic-tinged sounds that sound like what would happen if someone tried to remake Air’s Moon Safari to correspond with the present day’s fashions...” -Pitchfork
"...soothes and spooks in equal measure...blissful.” -Dazed and Confused
"...floats like a sweet Saint Etienne dream shattered by devastatingly melancholy trumpet sighs." -NME
"It s not just a mood of vacation relaxing over a clear calendar, but of not owning a calendar, not worrying that time exists." -The FADER
"...there are plenty of blissful melodies and heavenly pads to be found..." -XLR8R
“...intoxicating blend of gauzy summer melodies and late-night melancholy.” -Electronic Beats Magazine
"...this is Madmen Love! A twisted, hugely inventive track! It's like the Drive soundtrack with sharper claws. It's easily the fiercest these guys have ever sounded, and it makes for a surprising, exciting change." -This Is Fake DIY

With their 13th studio album ‘The Punishment Of Luxury’ out September 1st via White Noise Records, synth-pop pioneers Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark have released a new instant grat track "The View From Here" which premiered on Clash and was released on August 18th.

Prior to the release of this track OMD released videos for the singles "Isotype" and "The Punishment Of Luxury". As well as a video for the album's instrumental track "La Mitrailleuse". 
Having played triumphant shows in Los Angeles and San Francisco this summer, OMD head back out on the road again this autumn for a string of must-see shows in the U.K. and across Europe.

Synth-pop pioneers OMD return with their dazzling 13th studio album ‘The Punishment of Luxury’ which sees them combine the wistful nostalgia and idealized romance of their previous work while stepping out of their comfort zone. The LP is out September 1st on White Noise Records.

The follow up to the critically acclaimed ‘English Electric’ (released in 2013) ‘The Punishment Of Luxury’ is a daring collection of stylish synth pop and masterful songwriting which will certainly rank alongside their very best.

Written, recorded, produced and mixed by OMD – Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys – the album is the sound of a band in their prime. ‘On this album we have managed to make beautiful things out of noises and repetitive patterns’, explains Andy. ‘The trouble is, we just cant help but write a catchy melody!’

The album takes its name from an 1891 painting by the Italian Giovani Segantini and contains everything from the Kraftwerkian ‘Isotype’ and ‘Robot Man’ to the blue eyed soul ballads of ‘One More Time’ and ‘The View From Here’ as well as more traditional OMD songs like ‘Kiss Kiss Kiss Bang Bang Bang’ and the synth heavy title track.

Described by The Quietus as “not just one of the best synth bands ever – they are one of the best bands ever”, OMD’s influence has become ubiquitous. The xx, the Killers and LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy have cited OMD as an inspiration, and the likes of Future Islands and Chvrches show traces of OMD’s DNA.

METZ share explosive new track “Mess of Wires” + updated tour dates

METZ share potent new track
“Mess of Wires”
Photo credit: Ebru Yildiz
Listen "Mess of Wires:"
YouTube: https://youtu.be/ivJuJPArtF8
Spotify: http://u.subpop.com/2wkzfxV

Strange Peace will be out September 22, 2017 from Sub Pop Records (Worldwide, ex-Canada) and Royal Mountain Records (in Canada).
“Mess of Wires” [link here]  is the latest and arguably greatest song to be released from METZ’s forthcoming album Strange Peace. Zane Lowe gave the song its World First premiere on his Beats 1 show on Apple Music earlier today (which can be accessed here).

As described by METZ Frontman, Alex Edkins, “Mess of Wires” is “a reminder to myself to speak out and say what I believe. To be honest with myself. It is common to feel that your thoughts are inconsequential, a drop in the echo-chamber, but silence can be worse. Speak out about what you believe in, loud and often. In the spirit of this song, I want to strongly condemn the violent and hateful actions of the white-supremacists and neo-nazis in Charlottesville, VA. this past week. Their vile attempts to incite division and fear through intimidation and violence have no place in this world.”

METZ will be touring extensively throughout North America and Europe, beginning with a two-night stand September 5th and 6th in Atlanta at 529 and continuing through to December 16th in Houston at Warehouse Live. In the midst of that run, METZ will serve as direct support for Modest Mouse on October 10th and 11th. Additionally, METZ will play shows with Suuns (September 29th-30th), Uniform (October 2nd-8th), Protomartyr (Sept. 22nd and November 2nd-8th), Brian Case (November 9th), Drahla (November 12th-24th), and Cherubs (December 15th).

John Lee Hooker to be Celebrated with Career-Spanning Box Set


Los Angeles, CA - Craft Recordings, the Catalog division of Concord Bicycle Music, is proud to announce the release of King Of The Boogie, a career-spanning retrospective, honoring blues icon John Lee Hooker. Due out September 29th, the five-CD set delves deep into the catalog of the influential artist, featuring not only his iconic hits, but also rarities, live recordings and several previously unreleased tracks. Housed in a 56-page book, the collection includes a wide selection of photos, taken throughout the musician's life, plus new liner notes by writer and John Lee Hooker historian Jas Obrecht, as well as by the artist's longtime manager and friend, Mike Kappus.
John Lee Hooker (1917-2001) was born 100 years ago today, near Clarksdale, Mississippi to a sharecropping family. Throughout the years, there has been some academic debate about his original birth year. However, The Hooker family maintains 1917 as the de facto date. Says daughter Zakiya Hooker, "As we all know there was no great push for accuracy back then in that portion of the community. But we just stick to what my father told us, which was what he was told by his mother."
As a young man, Hooker worked his way up north to Detroit to pursue his passion of music. By 1948, the artist had a hit on his hands with one of his earliest recordings, "Boogie Chillun'." From there, Hooker would record over 100 albums throughout the course of his six-decade-long career, building a diverse collection of fans along the way: from folk musicians and beatniks, to the stars of the British Invasion. The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton and Carlos Santana are among those who cite Hooker as a major influence. In his liner notes, Mike Kappus recalls that, "Everyone who knew John Lee Hooker loved him and felt privileged to be in his presence. While he influenced generations of musicians with his incomparable style, that impact on musicians stepped up to yet another level once they got to know and, universally, love him."
In his later years, as the bluesman found himself in one of the busiest, most productive eras of his career, Hooker was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Blues Hall of Fame and Memphis Music Hall of Fame; was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and took home four GRAMMY® Awards, plus a coveted Lifetime Achievement Award in 2000.

Tasked with narrowing down Hooker's vast catalog into five CDs, box set producer Mason Williams curated the collection to narrate the artist's story. "Even at 100 songs, this set is just a snapshot of John Lee Hooker's incredible and influential career," says Williams, "but one that takes you on the long journey he took from his early days in Detroit, to his time in Chicago recording for Vee-Jay Records and up through his later collaborations with Van Morrison, Bonnie Raitt and Santana, among others."

King Of The Boogie will be released as part of a year-long, multi-partner centennial celebration, honoring the music and influence of John Lee Hooker, and will be a companion piece to an exhibit of the same name, which kicks off today at the GRAMMY Museum® Mississippi. John Lee Hooker: King Of The Boogie includes Hooker's performance outfits, guitars, photos, awards and, of course, his music. The exhibit will be on display through February 2018, before traveling west to the GRAMMY Museum® at L.A. LIVE. Additional centennial partners include The Blues Foundation, The Delta Blues Museum, Living Blues, Oxford American, the John Lee Hooker Estate, and Epiphone Guitars, who are currently planning the release of a limited-edition John Lee Hooker Zephyr Outfit sometime in early 2018. John Lee's daughter, Zakiya, has worked closely with all partners on her father's centennial events, and affirms, "Today, on what would have been my father's 100th birthday, I am so thrilled to see him celebrated-both with the exhibit, as well as with the announcement of this special collection of music. I know that his fans will be excited to hear rare performances, and to read the touching words of his longtime manager, Mike Kappus, as well as those of the wonderful Jas Obrecht. It was a pleasure to watch this box set come together, and I can't wait to see it shared with the world."

William Patrick Corgan Announces Ogilala





Photo credit: Alpha Pan

Los Angeles, CA - August 22, 2017 - GRAMMY® Award winning, acclaimed singer-songwriter and Smashing Pumpkins frontman, William Patrick Corgan announced today that his second solo album Ogilala will be released on October 13, 2017 via BMG. The album, produced by Rick Rubin and recorded at Shangri La studios in Malibu, presents Corgan's distinctive vocals and melodies across a sparse, but rich palette of acoustic guitar, piano, and strings. Pre-orders for Ogilala start today HERE.

"For as long as I can remember the delineation point between songs I wrote for myself and songs I'd pen for whatever band was something I couldn't explain. And it remains so, for they all feel quite personal to me, no matter their time or era. The lone difference on songs for Ogilala is that they seemed to want little in the way of adornment," said Corgan. "Having written the songs for voice and guitar, I put myself in Rick's hands to take the music wherever he'd like. Normally I would have done more, and tinkered more on production, but rather Rick put the onus on me to deliver at a molecular level via live takes. The rest was simply a reaction."

Corgan also released the album's striking first track, "Aeronaut," which is available now HERE and in all DSPs. Fans who pre-order Ogilala will receive an immediate download of "Aeronaut." Ogilala will be available digitally as well as physically on CD and 180 gram gatefold vinyl. A limited edition opaque blue vinyl will be available directly from Corgan's web store and a limited edition pink vinyl will be available at select indie retailers.  

Ogilala Tracklisting
1. Zowie
2. Processional
3. The Spaniards
4. Aeronaut
5. The Long Goodbye
6. Half-Life Of An Autodidact

9. Mandaryne

This fall, Corgan will embark on a solo acoustic North American tour that kicks off on October 14th in Brooklyn, NY and wraps up on November 11th in Los Angeles, CA with a three night stint at the Masonic Lodge at Hollywood Forever Cemetery. These intimate performances will see Corgan perform songs from Ogilala, as well as a second set which will span works from his earliest days through his years as the frontman of The Smashing Pumpkins and beyond. Tickets for the tour are on sale this Friday August 25th at 10:00am local time and will be available HERE.
