Nick Mulvey - Music Feeds Studio Session

Nick Mulvey might be the next big thing in folk. The way he plays guitar is inventive and the songs as well as his voice stand on a high level. Mulvey’s debut album ‘First mind’ is one not to be missed!

Damien Rice - My favourite faded fantasy (audio)
Thé Irish troubadour returns with his first new album in eight years! ‘My favourite faded fantasy’ is produced by Rick Rubin and will hit stores November 11th via Warner Bros. Records.
Damien Rice has now shared the first single (and title track): it starts off rather slow on an acoustic basis, like most of Rice’s songs, until it bursts open with a blast of strings and booming drums. One thing is already clear: this album is one to anticipate!

Mark Lanegan Band - Sad lover (official video)

Recognizable, but yet again slightly different: the new single by Mark Lanegan. His voice is in its highest register to date - the man quit smoking and all other forbidden substances - and there were never that many electronic effects in his solo work. Do you like it as well?

'Sad lover' appears on the 'No bells on Sunday' EP.

Tricky - Nicotine love (feat. Francesca Belmonte)

A very surprising new single by The Tricky Kid … Who would have thought that even house was available in his spectrum? ‘Adrian Thaws’ is his new album that hits stores in exactly one week. It is his second good one in a row.

Blonde Redhead - Barragàn (album stream)
It’s not a habit of mine to share album streams, but I just can’t choose a favourite song off Blonde Redhead’s new album ‘Barragàn’. The New York band goes into its third decade, and they manage to keep surprising within their own (weird) framework. Check it over @ The Guardian.

Royal Blood - Live session at Maida Vale (December 2013)

Royal Blood. They were the strange name in BBC’s Sound of 2014, which was packed with rather poppy acts. However, in December 2013 they already proved how mean their rudimental sound could be. The self-titled debut has hit stores today and guess what: it is ace.

Leonard Cohen - Almost like the blues

The master celebrates his 80th birthday on September 21 and two days later he will release a new studio album: ‘Popular problems’, which is a very Leonard Cohen type of title. This one is the first track that he likes to share with the world. It contains brilliant lyrics (as usual), and beautiful touches like a horn section and careful backings by The mighty Webb Sisters. And is it me, or did his voice get even deeper than two years ago?

Johnny Marr - Easy money (official video)

The second solo effort from Johnny Marr is due October 4 and will be titled ‘Playland’. ‘Easy money’ is the first single.

Ryan Adams - Gimme something good

New sounds from Ryan Adams! And it’s more catchy than ever! The album ‘Ryan Adams’ is due out Sept.9 …

FKA Twigs - Hide

This is a beautiful video with new sensation FKA Twigs - her debut LP1 comes out soon - singing and dancing amidst Mayan ruins in Tulum, Mexico. It is part of Young Turks’ DAZED Visonaries series by Your Truly.

Next week FKA Twigs plays at the Pukkelpop festival in Belgium, where I hope she will be one of the highlights.
