Seth Lakeman – ‘Last Rider’ single and video out now / Royal Albert Hall Show / UK tour dates

Posted in News with tags , , on May 22, 2014 by E.N.

seth lakemanWestcountry folk singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Seth Lakeman unearthed hidden histories and unsung everyday heroes to commemorate in song from in and around his native Devon and Cornwall for his latest album ‘Word of Mouth’ released in February 2014. The new single LAST RIDER is out now with a video

Seth says of Last Rider……’It is a rolling, rhythmic song written about a final journey taking by an old steam engine driver. It features the fabulous banjo playing of Leon Hunt and leads you through the rattling tracks of the railway’.

Seth will be playing at LONDON’s Royal Albert Hall on 06 June as part of BBC Radio 2′s D-Day 70 Years On Concert where he will perform a song with the BBC Concert Orchestra and at a headline show at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre on 03 August. He plays festivals throughout the Summer including Folk by the Oak, Cambridge Folk Festival and Beautiful Days. Seth will be on the road again in October to play a UK tour with his band playing tracks from the new album and live favourites.

Seth has performed everywhere from Libya to Australia to Texas over the years, as well as featuring on just about every major festival bill across the UK. In addition, he has toured extensively around Europe too where he’s also performed with others including Tori Amos and Clannad. In 2013 amidst a hectic summer of festival appearances, recording the new album and the birth of his twins he flew to New York to meet Izzy Young for a BBC Radio 4 special called ‘The Folklorist’.

Seth’s previous albums include the Mercury Music Prize nominated ‘Kitty Jay’ (2005) and the gold-selling ‘Freedom Fields’ (2006) which featured the hit singles Lady of the Sea and The White Hare.

Cloud Seeding “Mirage” (feat. Alexa Wilding)(Stream)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , on April 30, 2014 by E.N.

Cloud Seeding MirageCloud Seeding continues its collaborative project with their sixth single, “Mirage,” featuring Alexa Wilding. Serra quickly gained an admiration for Alexa’s dark and visual music when he stumbled across videos for her songs “Black Diamond Day” and “Knife.” He contacted the singer and the two became fast friends over snacks in the West Village. “I was immediately drawn to Kevin’s music,” Wilding says, “the skeletal instrumentals he sent me reminded me of Hal Hartley’s soundtracks, only grittier. They had a dark and cinematic nostalgia to them that got me writing right away.” Fun fact, they have both worked with members of Television (Serra has taken guitar lessons from Richard Lloyd and Fred Smith mixed both of Wilding’s records).
Wilding was ready to get to work, the only caveat was she was heavily pregnant with twin boys. After a long wait which saw the birth of her twins, “Mirage” was finally completed in April 2014, mixed and mastered by Wilding’s longtime engineer, Murray Trider at Ground Control Studios in South Williamburg. Wilding’s bandmate, Jared Barron, added percussion to the song. The cover is designed by Ian Patrick Sullivan. “‘Mirage’ is very special to me,” Wilding shares, “I was unclear what being a mother would mean for my music, and this song, a road song of sorts, carried me through to the other side, and pushed me into some new sonic territory.”

Armand Margjeka Releases His Second Masterpiece, Hummingbird on 6/10

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 29, 2014 by E.N.

Processed with VSCOcam with b5 presetArmand Margjeka captures the essence of the human brain; always thinking, always looking for a new thing. Working with Darrell Thorp (Beck, Outcast) and Chris Steffen (Ben Harper) to produce the upcoming album Hummingbird (June 10,2014)

Hummingbird is a step forward for singer/songwriter and musician, Armand Margjeka. For his second solo album, Margjeka hand-picked 10 songs from his long list of recordings to formHummingbird. This album represents whatever the listen thinks it does. Margjeka said: “I would rather not beat the listener to the punch and omit any possible influence the record might have that I didn’t even intend to bring but let the listener come to their own conclusions without any real guidance.” With a more mature approach than before and the desire to influence, Margjeka portrays his hope to interest and inspire his listeners through his sound and his create-your-own-meaning lyrics  found throughout Hummingbird.

Margjeka was born in Albania and raised on American music. The communist regime he grew up with was oppressive, but somehow a mix tape of American rock’n’roll found its way into his hands. Music videos and tapes of some of his favorite artists taught Margjeka more about the language than what he learned in school.  Armand Margjeka’s sophomore release Hummingbird is slated for a Spring 2014 release via PIPEANDGUN and Communicating Vessels.

Vancouver Sleep Clinic – Collapse(Stream)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on November 27, 2013 by E.N.

Vancouver Sleep Clinic - Collapse
Vancouver Sleep Clinic as a name in itself conjures up imagery of long cold winters, of isolation and remoteness and the sometimes self-imposed reclusiveness in all of us as the days get shorter and we move into the bitter months ahead. The adopted moniker of 17 year-old Tim Bettinson perfectly hones in on this visuality and with new track ‘Collapse’ taken from his forthcoming debut EP, the influences of those dark corners inside ourselves interweave throughout his sound.

As we draw closer into the winter here in the Western hemisphere, VSC feels like it was designed to be delivered just in time for the onslaught of the colder weather. Taking into consideration that Tim lives in Australia, he set about writing songs for VSC during his winter but what was in fact our Summer – timing can be everything.

After months of assembling lyrics and instrumentation from various math’s books, notes, whiteboards and bedroom walls, humbly working with scattered cheap microphones, an old laptop and an outdated keyboard – Vancouver Sleep Clinic’s debut EP was born, a combination of soaring falsetto vocals built upon progressive synthetic instrumentation to create an ambient base for a vessel of emotional connections to be made.

Bearing messages of sorrow, humility and hope above all else – songs are written from the heart alone. Together, let’s create something beautiful.

ESKA – ‘Gatekeeper’ EP

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 18, 2013 by E.N.

EskaPossessing one of the best and most memorable voices in the UK right now, ESKA weaves together diverse musical elements – hints of folk, soul, psychedelica and electronica can all be heard on ‘Gatekeeper’ - and pairs them with stirring lyrics, born from burning passion, which traverse scenes from church stories and rituals. With this debut release, ESKA has created something pure and timeless which echoes past traditions while at the same time managing to surprise with its stunning originality.

ESKA’s music has already created a buzz; receiving strong radio support from the likes of Gilles Peterson, who made the EP’s title song his track of the week on his BBC 6 Music show, Jamie Cullum, from BBC Radio 2 who described ‘Gatekeeper’ as “an unbelievable track, that will be hard to beat in 2013” and BBC Radio London’s Robert Elms who recently featured a sensational live performance of ‘She’s in the Flowers‘.
