Cleveland born, songwriter/performer Joshua Radin announces his upcoming SELF – RELEASED LP Wax Wings, coming May 7, 2013. The label favorite chose to independently release his fifth studio album. Radin has sold more than 1.5 million singles, half a million albums and has over 75 songs placements in film and TV.

The title Wax Wings comes from Greek Mythology and the story of Icarus and his attempt to escape from Crete (the largest of the Greek Islands) by means of wings that his craftsman father constructed from solely feathers and wax. Icarus ignored instructions not to fly too close to the sun, and in the process came too close, which melted the wax. The melting wax caused him to fall into the sea where he drowned which today bears his name, the Icarian Sea. Radin followed the same path of flight with this album… letting curiosity guide his path in order to conquer the sky.

“this album is the story of a romance; but there’s no beginning and no end. it’s more circular than linear. often, in my past songs, i’ve referred to my love as the sun. i flew too close to that sun on wings made of wax, and when they melted, i fell, over and over again.”

— Joshua Radin

Marianne Faithful to Release Horses and High Heels 

in the US on June 28th on Naïve Records
 

Marianne Faithful will release her 23rd album, Horse and High Heels, in the US  on June 28th via Naïve Records.  The collection of songs consists of four originals and eight covers ranging from Carol King’s “Going Back” to Greg Dulli & Mark Lanegan’s “The Stations.”  Four of the tracks feature virtuosic guitarist John Porter (Eric Clapton, The Smiths) while Lou Reed and Dr. John/MC5’s Wayne Kramer each make cameos on multiple songs.

“Why Did We Have To Part?”
Iconic, influential, and inimitable, Marianne has been an entrancing and creative musical presence for the past 47 years.  Beginning with her debut single, “As Tears Go By” (1964, the first song ever written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards), Marianne has created an enduring legacy with her distinct, emotive, and truly haunting voice.   She has also established herself as a powerful songwriter with a gift for crafting visceral melodies and deeply resonant lyrics.  Her artistic fearlessness has led her to sing with legends like David Bowie and Metallica, and collaborate with a younger generation of musicians she influenced such as Beck, Morrissey, Billy Corgan and Blur.
 
Horses and High Heels was recorded in New Orleans and features a core of masterful local musicians.  It was produced by Hal Willner (Laurie Anderson, Allen Ginsberg), who also helmed Marianne’s critically-acclaimed 2009 collection of covers and duets: Easy Come, Easy Go. The songs touch on everything from soul, blues, folk, country, jazz-pop perkiness, and beguiling guitar-rock.  Much like the rest of her career, the only consistent theme or style of the album is Marianne herself.

Antony and the Johnsons to Release

Thank You For Your Love EP on August 24

Download the title-track here for the price of an email!

Antony and the Johnsons will release their five track EP “Thank You For Your Love” on August 24th via Secretly Canadian.  The title-track is the lead single from the forthcoming album “Swanlights” also being released by Secretly Canadian on October 12.

Those who purchase the bundles will instantly receive an advance download of the EP. The pre-order is up here
 
On “Thank You For Your Love”, Antony expresses a soul-infused cry of gratitude, but the song progresses into urgency, leaving behind the 4/4 rhythms and breaking into an emotional gallop that reveals an underlying pathos.  “You Are The Treasure” is the calm after the storm, “My Lord My Love” closes the A side as a song for a lost childhood.  The B side features two unusual covers accompanied by Kevin Barker on Acoustic Guitar, the first is Bob Dylan’s “Pressing On”, Antony’s take is sweet, upbeat and beautiful.  “Imagine” collaboration with avant-garde ambient composer William Basinski is a foreboding take on John Lennon’s hallowed song.

Artwork for the EP features photographs Antony took when he first arrived in NYC as a teenager in the early 90’s.

(Due October 12, 2010)

 Antony and the Johnsons will release their new album, “Swanlights”, on October 12th in the US via Secretly Canadian.  Abrams Image will simultaneously release a special edition of “Swanlights” which will include the CD inside a 144-page hard cover book containing Antony’s paintings, collages, photography and writing. The album only version of “Swanlights” on Secretly Canadian will also include the song “Flétta”, a duet with Björk. The album and book are a continuation of Antony’s work exploring his connection to the natural world.

Book to be released by Abrams Image

While I Am a Bird Now is compelling in its vulnerability, and The Crying Light is a masterpiece of austerity, Swanlights may be Antony’s most wide-rangingly emotional work to date. It is a record that is at moments heartbreakingly  tender, and at other times has a joyful gleam to its teeth. Unlike previous work, which was often quite sparsely voiced, on Swanlights the vines in the garden are overgrown and the sound palette has become more exotic; strange percussive elements, John Cale-esque string drones, heavily distorted guitars and symphonic winds and strings thread the song cycle together.

“Everything is New” opens the album with a newborn piano melody that quickly gathers in momentum and excitement. Strings and bursts of percussion carry the song forward in a feral cacophony of sound. Later on the album, the title track  “Swanlights” finds us navigating a primordial and hallucinatory world of hazy guitar tones. The enigmatic layered melody of “Swanlights” emerges from a glistening soundscape. A central image on the album, Antony explains what he means by the word “Swanlights”:  ”It’s the reflection of light on the surface of the water at night. It’s the moment when a spirit jumps out of a body and turns into a violet ghost.”  On “Thank You For Your Love”, Antony expresses a soul-infused sentiment of gratitude, but the song progresses into urgency, leaving behind the 4/4 rhythmic structure and breaking into an emotional gallop that reveals an underlying pathos.

The Swanlights book is a collection of thought-provoking paintings, drawings, collages, photography, and writings. Dreamlike and often bleakly environmental, Antony depicts a natural and spiritual world under siege. Much of the work aches with a forlorn romanticism. In some pieces, the artist draws together fragments of the past, the present and the future to create a ghostly sense of omniscience. One image features a portrait of the artist with his great grandmother’s face projected upon his own, creating a ricochet through time and genealogy.  Found images of natural landscapes are stained with scrawls of ink, indicating invisible presence and movement. Some pieces are more conceptual; in “Cut Away The Bad”, the artist removes corrupted elements in an attempt to restore balance.  In pieces like “I Want To Help” Antony sews a torn landscape back together with a magical intent.

Music and visual art intersect in these two presentations of Swanlights to create an arresting vision of the world through the artist’s eyes.

Swanlights is the fourth Antony and the Johnsons album and the follow up to the critically acclaimed “The Crying Light” which entered the European Chart at #1 was included in year-end best of lists across the globe in 2009. Antony burst into the international spotlight with his second album, “I am a Bird Now”, which won the UK’s prestigious Mercury Music Prize.
