Ashley Monroe Like A RoseITUNESINFO
Ashley Monroe’s Warner Bros. Records debut release Like A Rose will be available to Australian fans on May 24.
Monroe's highly-anticipated studio album, produced by 20-time GRAMMY award-winner Vince Gill and Justin Niebank, features songs she co-wrote with the legendary Hall of Fame songwriter Guy Clark as well as many of Nashville's A-list songwriters. Monroe has been creating music for more than half of her life, being an integral member of the Pistol Annies – attracting along the way kudos from music world giants like Dolly Parton and Jack White. Her new, full-length album release serves both to fill in the back-story and impart to us who she is today. At times her songs are dead serious, at others utterly hilarious, but always Monroe is an original with a compelling story to share.
See why US critics are already calling this the “Album of the Year”:
“Ashley Monroe’s Like A Rose is the first great album of the year” – Washington Post
“…she's packed [Like A Rose] full of backroad debauchery and heartbreak.” – Rolling Stone
“…Like A Rose has the audacious sound of a newcomer whose talent is already in full bloom.” – Associated Press
“Nashville's lovers of traditional country have raved about the Pistol Annies member's staggering talent for years. With this Vince Gill-produced album, by turns hilarious and heartbreaking, everyone can hear what the fuss is about.” – USA Today (4/4 stars)

Caro Emerald The Shocking Miss EmeraldITUNESJB HIFIINFO
Where Caro’s multi-platinum selling debut album, Deleted Scenes From The Cutting Room Floor, took its inspiration from the Hollywood cinema and the glitz and glamour of the jazz scene, The Shocking Miss Emerald is inspired by the epicentre of style, romance, excitement and dangerous liaisons – Paris.
Picture Man Ray and his Bohemian friends roaming the streets of Montparnasse, famous hotels, shady cabarets and bars where fashionable dames, struggling artists and foreign visitors mingle. Caro takes part in it, reminisces about her life in the spotlight, but never fails to take her listeners backstage, away from the stage, to where the work is done, the tears are shed and the credits are earned, not just cashed in.
The main theme, if you will, of The Shocking Miss Emerald is style. Style has always played an important role in the Caro Emerald world, and this album emphasizes Caro not only as a great singer, but also a sophisticated and timeless style icon. The first single, the hooky, hip-hop tango Tangled Up, is stylish, classy and sassy pop - Caro’s trademark - and is a delicious appetiser for the new album.
Smouldering, charismatic and with an appealingly aesthetic eye for presentation, Caro Emerald is a truly original pop star. Deleted Scenes From The Cutting Room Floor, so joyful and overflowing with retro-loveliness, sold more than 1.3 million copies across Europe, dominating the charts for 30 weeks in Holland, and in Britain spent nine weeks in the top 10 and was certified platinum. Caro performed on UK TV shows including Jools Holland’s Hootenanny, Strictly Come Dancing and BBC’s Children In Need and her music became a permanent fixture on the airwaves with Radio 2 adding all five singles to the A List and making the record Album Of The Week. Caro’s live performances included an astonishing set in London’s Hyde Park and at the Isle of Wight Festival and her sold out headline UK tour garnered rave reviews.

Feel is sure to instantly please their current fans whilst wining over countless others making them a worldwide success.
Goo Goo Dolls MagneticITUNESJB HIFIINFO
Early in their career, the Goo Goo Dolls were frequently dismissed by critics as mere imitators of the Replacements; however, they refined and mainstreamed their sound to become one of the most popular adult alternative rock bands of the 1990s, selling millions of records to audiences largely unfamiliar with their influences. That's no knock on the band, either — the music simply improved in craft and accessibility as the years progressed, and radio happened to be receptive to a style that, one decade earlier, would have been considered collegiate power pop. Thus, the band landed two huge hits with the acoustic ballads "Name" and "Iris," followed by a string of Top Ten singles.
The Goo Goo Dolls formed in 1985 in Buffalo, NY. Guitarist/vocalist Johnny Rzeznik, bassist Robby Takac, and drummer George Tutuska initially banded together under the name the Sex Maggots, and their new moniker was chosen from an ad in True Detective magazine at the behest of a local club owner. Originally a cover band with a taste for power pop and classic rock & roll, the group soon began writing original songs. Their early sound recalled the Replacements' origins as a bratty punk band: melodic, snotty, and a little bit thrashy. That sound was the reason the band attracted the interest of the heavy metal label Metal Blade, which issued their debut album in 1987 (known either as The Goo Goo Dolls or First Release). Released in 1989, the follow-up album Jed continued in a similar vein, and the band's college radio breakthrough came with 1990's Hold Me Up, a Replacements-ish power pop record.
Ed Banger Records ED REC VOL. XITUNESINFO
Frankie & the Heartstrings The Days Run AwayINFO
The Days Run Away was recorded during 2012 in Newcastle and London with former Suede figurehead and producer Bernard Butler. The band initially collaborated with Butler on their post-Hunger album single Everybody Looks Better (In The Right Light) which returns on this record, and the first fruits of their sessions was released in the form of download track I Still Follow You last October.
The eleven-track album continues the pursuit of guitar perfection they began with their debut Hunger released in February 2011. The Days Run Away maintains the F&THs tradition of songs that refuse to outstay their welcome - a precise blend of passion and guitars, with enough new tricks to show that they’ve spent the last six months updating their book of indie nous.
Lead track Nothing Our Way is the prime example of that – similar to the zealous and the fervent collectivism of their hit track Hunger from their debut LP, but with an additional sense of scope and restrained grandeur.
Speaking with regards The Days Run Away, singer Frankie Francis said, “we’re raring to go with this new record, it’s been a long year and staying off the road so we can write and record a great album has been tough for us at times, but we've put everything we have into it and can't wait to unleash it".
Frankie & the Heartstring’s debut album Hunger was released to huge acclaim in February 2011, arriving in the top 40 album charts. The quintet subsequently performed across the UK, Europe, Japan, America and Australia culminating in a series of high-profile festival appearances in the summer that year.
Surfer Blood PythonsITUNESINFO
Though South Florida doesn't have the tides to shoot the curl, West Palm Beach's Surfer Blood fuse sunny surf rock charm with indie rock cool. Guitarist/vocalist John Paul Pitts and drummer Tyler Schwarz had known each other since high school; they started playing together and connected with guitarist Thomas Fekete, bassist Brian Black, and percussionist Marcos Marchesani at an Ultra Music Festival after-party, officially becoming Surfer Blood in spring 2009. They began recording and touring almost immediately, laying down tracks in Pitts' apartment and embarking on four tours in their first five months together. The buzz around the band began in late August after Surfer Blood played a show at the Brooklyn venue Bruar Falls; when they returned to New York that fall for the CMJ Music Marathon, they played ten shows. Tours with Art Brut and Japandroids kept Surfer Blood busy for the rest of 2009, and their debut album, Astro Coast, was released in early 2010. Later that year, the band signed to Warner Bros., but released the Tarot Classics EP on Kanine in 2011.
ZZ Top THE COMPLETE STUDIO ALBUMS (1970-1990)INFO
LOS ANGELES – Back in 1969, Billy F Gibbons, Frank Beard and Dusty Hill joined together in Houston as ZZ TOP. The band that would unassumingly go on to be known as That Little Ol’ Band From Texas soon made rock history with a string of hugely successful record releases and tour dates. Over the next 20 years, the trio went on to critical and commercial acclaim, selling millions of albums and concert tickets around the world, while earning induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame and status as one of the only bands to have been awarded an RIAA Diamond (domestic sales of 10 million or more) album.
Warner Bros. Records explores the impressive scope of ZZ TOP’s musical legacy with a boxed set that includes the original mixes for the band’s first 10 albums. ZZ TOP: THE COMPLETE STUDIO ALBUMS (1970-1990) will be available on June 10 for a suggested list price of $59.99.
The set, including the albums initially released on the London label as well as the string of Warner Bros. Hits that followed, includes ZZ Tops’ First Album (1971), Rio Grande Mud (1972), Tres Hombres (1973), Fandango! (1975)*, Tejas (1976), Degüello (1979), El Loco (1981), Eliminator (1983), Afterburner (1985) and Recycler (1990). Each album is presented in a wallet sleeve that faithfully reproduces the original artwork, including the gatefold designs used for Tres Hombres and Tejas. The set presents, for the first time on CD, the original mixes for ZZ Tops’ First Album, Rio Grande Mud and Tejas that have long been on the wish lists of the band’s most fervent fans.
Today, Gibbons, Hill and Beard remain together performing and recording as, they often say, “the same three guys playing the same three chords.” The trio offered a statement regarding the forthcoming release of ZZ TOP: THE COMPLETE STUDIO ALBUMS (1970-1990): “We're gratified that the albums from the first 20 years of the band are going to be made available in this set. We're especially delighted to note the restoration of ZZ Top's First Album, Rio Grande Mud and Tejas has been incorporated; it's good to have been made whole again on a certain level.”
The collection spans 100 tracks that follow the band’s journey from the honky tonks of Texas to the stages of the world, starting with the earthy blues and electrifying boogie that defined their ’70s sound — “Just Got Paid,” “La Grange,” “Tush” and “Cheap Sunglasses.” THE COMPLETE STUDIO ALBUMS closes with the familiar synthesizers featured on the group’s biggest singles from the ’80s — “Legs” and “Sharp Dressed Man” from the Diamond-certified Eliminator, and the #1 hits “Sleeping Bag” and “Stages” from its multi-platinum follow-up Afterburner.

3OH!3's playful sense of humor has always been matched by their tireless work ethic, both of which are at the forefront of the band's latest album OMENS. Like their self-released debut, their latest album was produced by the band and sees this duo further expanding on the musical motifs that have endeared them to fans worldwide, while simultaneously stretching forward to redefine what 3OH!3 represents today. Oh and don't worry, it will still make you dance.
Admittedly the process of making OMENS—which saw the band writing, recording, producing and mixing over 20 songs—was intense and unforgiving at times, but it allowed for a completely unfiltered snapshot of what Sean Foreman and Nathaniel Motte are capable of when it comes to ingenious wordplay, inventive beats and a one-of-a-kind sensibility that can turn everything from a V.I.P. nightclub to the main stage at the Warped Tour into an instant party.
“With all of our records it’s always just been us,” explains Motte—who recorded the album in his basement studio in Colorado—when asked about the band's autonomous nature. “Since we made our first record four years ago we’ve learned so much about songwriting and production as well as the actual logistical and technical side of making a record, so we really wanted to explore the idea of allowing this record to showcase who we are as people and musicians.”
While most acts in their position would choose to work with big name producers or stack their disc with special guests, for OMENS the duo decided to get back to their roots to recapture the magic of 3OH!3’s humble beginnings. “We didn’t try to think too much about the songs we wanted to make, we just really tried to have fun making this record and at times it made us feel so giddy it was like we were back in college again,” Foreman explains. “That love of music without all the pressure has always been at the core of our sound and we never want to lose that.”
Correspondingly OMENS features songs like “TWO GIRLFRIENDS” and "BLACK HOLE" with sexually charged, pop-culture-heavy rapping that has endeared them to countless fans. For every hip-hop banger there’s also an infectious club-friendly rocker such as “YOU’RE GONNA LOVE THIS” and “MAKE IT EASY.” “I love a song like ‘YOUNGBLOOD’ because it’s very positive and hopefully brings out something in people that’s inspirational without being too heavy,” Foreman explains. When asked about “BACK TO LIFE” Motte adds, “we’re all about including people no matter where they came from or genre they associate with, and that’s what that song represents to me.”
Having collaborated with some of the biggest names in pop such as Katy Perry, Ke$ha and Lil John over the past few years, 3OH!3’s expanded musical palette now extends beyond their own band. "Every time I work with an artist like Ke$ha and It Boys! it's a huge achievement and we've had so much fun working on every session whether the song blows up or not," Foreman explains. Similarly Motte—who has written with everyone from huge rock acts like Maroon 5 to underground hip-hop icons like AWOL ONE—adds, "Since me and Sean write and produce all our own music it's only natural to work with other people and we're really excited to continue doing that and see what happens."
That said, 3OH!3 have also had plenty of success on their own, most notably having their 2008 album WANT go Gold. "We're the kind of band who are still making albums, not just one song after another, so to have that come to fruition and have it take a couple of years it was really obvious that the work that we've been putting into the band has paid off," Foreman says. "When Sean and I were making that record we were excited that anyone was going to hear it, so having it sell half a million copies four years later was really encouraging and flattering for us," Motte adds.
Anyone who's familiar with the band knows also knows that the duality between the band’s hard work ethic and party-friendly message has always laid at the core of 3OH!3 and they manage to further explore that balance on OMENS. “It’s funny because as a band we walk a lot of razor thin lines and there’s always been this kind of conundrum in the art itself between what’s fun and what’s legitimate art—and our whole ethos is that they shouldn’t be mutually exclusive… and they aren’t in our case,” Motte explains.
Another game-changing aspect of OMENS is the fact that Foreman has expanded his vocal style and felt comfortable expressing himself in new ways. “I love our past work but I was always finding my footing of what I was comfortable doing and with this one I feel like I found this really unique hybrid of singing and rapping,” he says. “I actually felt confident hearing my own voice this time around, which is something that’s new for me and I’m really proud of the way each vocal line syncs up with the instrumentation.”
Then again none of this would matter without the constant support and validation that the band receive from their fans and they've continued that relationship by maintaining a strong online personality that's gained them over five million "likes" on Facebook. "Our online presence is something we've always prided ourselves on because from the beginning we've always wanted to have a dialogue with our fans since they're as like-minded as us," Foreman says. "With this album we've been teasing parts of the album and getting feedback with fans in a way that wouldn't have been possible a few years ago, so that's incredibly exciting," Motte confirms.
Having already performed everywhere from The Tonight Show With Jay Leno to American Idol alongside Ke$ha, 3OH!3 have racked up an impressive resume that's seen them vying for MTV Video Music Awards, selling out shows worldwide, racking up platinum singles and blowing away audiences at festivals like Reading and Leeds. OMENS is just the latest step forward for a duo who just can't be categorized. As you might expect, neither the fans nor the band would have it any other way.
Falling In Reverse Fashionably LateITUNESJB HIFIINFO
Voted as Alternative Press magazine’s 2012 Artist of the Year, one of Revolver’s 100 Greatest Living Rock Stars and Kerrang’s 50 Greatest Rock Stars In The World, Radke’s band Falling In Reverse will release their second album Fashionably Late on June 21 via Epitaph Records. It’s the follow up to their Top 20 debut The Drug In Me Is You.
Since forming in 2008, Falling In Reverse have racked up a fanatical fan base, so much so that the band’s legendary videos have been viewed over 30 million times.
The attitude of the 1980’s Sunset Strip, the bravado of battle-ready rap, the take-no-prisoners bottom end of metalcore and the boundless revelry of underground EDM parties have all beautifully converged in this one band and this new album. It’s for everyone on Instagram, on Twitter, or anyone with a brain and two ears.
“My dad raised me on metal, but my first serious love was hip-hop,” Ronnie explains. “When I heard Dr. Dre’s The Chronic, that’s when I fell in love. I didn’t know what the hell they were talking about, the beats were intertwined, and it came inside of me and took me over. When we added hip-hop elements I was thinking, ‘Should I do this? This sounds crazy! Are people going to like this?’ Now I’ve never been so proud of something. The final product, Fashionably Late, is the best work I’ve ever done.”
The first single from Fashionably Late will be Alone which has an over the top video watch HERE. Blending big radio beats with moshpit inducing riffage, the track addresses Ronnie’s critics head-on. “It’s everything I’ve ever wanted to say to all these Twitter followers that talk shit,” he says. “I wanted to let everyone that dedicates their lives to just one genre of music know why they are so unhappy.”
A pre order for Fashionably Late will begin this morning from Falling In Reverse’s website.
With Fashionably Late, Falling In Reverse continues to push the envelope musically, while writing songs that are strong enough to cross over into the mainstream. Their new album is arriving right on time.
Various Artists SING ME THE SONGS: CELEBRATING THE WORKS OF KATE MCGARRIGLEINFO
On June 21, Nonesuch Records releases Sing Me the Songs: Celebrating the Works of Kate McGarrigle, which features highlights from three concerts in honour of the late Kate McGarrigle, the beloved singer and Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame member. After McGarrigle died of sarcoma, a rare form of cancer, in 2010, her children—the acclaimed musicians Martha and Rufus Wainwright—and her sister and musical partner Anna McGarrigle led tribute concerts in London, Toronto, and New York.
Proceeds from the concerts provided seed money for the Kate McGarrigle Foundation—a non-profit organization dedicated to raising money in the fight against sarcoma and also to preserving her legacy through the arts. Net proceeds from the sale of Sing Me the Songs also will be donated to the Foundation. The double-disc set was produced by Joe Boyd, who curated the concerts, and features performances by Rufus and Martha Wainwright, Anna McGarrigle, Emmylou Harris, Antony, Norah Jones, and Teddy Thompson, among others. (The complete track list is on the next page.)
The New York concerts were filmed for a feature documentary entitled Sing Me the Songs That Say I Love You: A Concert for Kate McGarrigle, directed by Lian Lunson (Leonard Cohen: I’m Your Man) and produced by Lunson and Teddy Wainwright. Candid interviews with McGarrigle’s family and friends are paired with rousing performances of her music. Sing Me the Songs That Say I Love You will premiere in late June at Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) which will also present a benefit concert titled Kate’s Kids, in which Rufus and Martha will welcome a few very special guests, including Norah Jones, Emmylou Harris, and Mark Ronson, to celebrate the rich career of their late mother. This event will follow Martha Wainwright’s forthcoming Australian tour, which takes place from May 31-June 22 (dates below) and which follows the release of her latest album Come Home To Mama.
Raised in an artistic family in St. Sauveur, Quebec, Kate McGarrigle moved to New York in 1969 to pursue a singing career while her sister Anna studied art in Montreal. Both wrote many songs during this period, including Anna’s “Heart Like a Wheel,” which eventually appeared on their debut album (and was made famous by Linda Ronstadt in 1974), and Kate’s “The Work Song,” which Maria Muldaur recorded in 1973. It was another Muldaur recording of a McGarrigle song that first brought the sisters to the attention of then–Warner Bros. Records President Lenny Waronker and launched their recording career with Kate & Anna McGarrigle (1976). Ten more albums followed, including 1977’s Dancer with Bruised Knees, which Nonesuch reissued in a set with their debut album—and a disc of previously unreleased demos—in 2011.
RISE follows the band's 2009 blockbuster, Awake, which was recently certifiedplatinum for sales in excess of one million copies in the U.S. It's worth noting thatSkillet was the only active rock band to achieve platinum certification in 2012,and were one of only three rock bands (the other two being Mumford & Sons andthe Black Keys) to strike platinum in 2012.
The band maintains momentum with RISE, a gripping coming-of-age narrativethat stands as their first concept album-though lead singer/bassist John Coopersays it wasn't premeditated. The album tells the story of a typical American teencoming into adulthood and trying to figure out who he is in a world riddled withproblems both within and outside his control.
"The narrative idea happened after we had 10 or 11 of the songs chosen," he says."As we recorded them, we started to realize that there was something going on-that the album was really telling a story. Realizing that, I knew we needed tomake it as powerful as we could, and say that even though all of those things arehappening, there is hope and there is love and there is a God that will be there foryou; if you reach out to Him, He will reach back out to you. That message is in allof our records and most of our songs. It certainly is the message of this record."
The result is a wildly ambitious work as heady as it is visceral. Sonically, the discsees the band expanding their musical palette, integrating natural, acousticinstruments like accordion, mandolin, dulcimer, harp, tympani and bells to theirtrademark slashing electric guitars, strings, churning synths and pummelingdrums.
Skillet (Cooper, guitarist/keyboardist Korey Cooper, drummer/vocalist JenLedger and guitarist Seth Morrison) recorded the album in Los Angeles, wherethey re-teamed with producer Howard Benson (Three Days Grace, All AmericanRejects, My Chemical Romance), who helmed Awake.
Wale the giftedINFO
"THE GIFTED" follows up Wale’s #1 debuting sophomore album “Ambition”, which produced the Grammy nominated, award winning, certified Gold single “Lotus Flower Bomb” featuring Miguel.
Quickly becoming one of Hip Hop’s strongest lyricists, MMG artist, Wale has released a series of critically acclaimed mix tapes and received praise for his debut album, “Attention Deficit”. “Ambition”, which charted high on Billboard, (#1 on the Rap charts and #2 overall) is just steps away from Gold plaque status, with almost 500k units sold. Critics had this to say: “More than any of the other young rappers who emerged at the same time… Wale has seemed resistant to being boxed into a single style.” – Billboard
“At his core, he is still the same artist that became a leader of the early run of Internet baby boomers late last decade—standing on slick and nimble wordplay complemented by honesty, conscience and perspective. But now Wale seems freer, both musically and mentally.” - XXL
Mavis Staples one true vineITUNESJB HIFIINFO
The follow-up to 2010's Grammy-winning You Are Not Alone, One True Vine finds Staples traversing darker terrain with stark, acoustic arrangements and the most honest, unvarnished vocal performances of her career. Featuring ten tracks, including new compositions written specifically for Staples by Tweedy and Nick Lowe along with covers ranging from Funkadelic to Low—the record is the most personal and emotional statement from the "American treasure" (Chicago Tribune) yet.
Recorded at The Loft, Wilco's studio in Chicago, the album features Jeff Tweedy on nearly every instrument except drums, which were played by Tweedy's 17-year-old son Spencer. From album opener Holy Ghost, written by Low's Alan Sparhawk, to the new Tweedy composition Jesus Wept, the gravity in Staples' voice is transfixing, heavy with burdens but blessed with the promise of true redemption that shines through on Nick Lowe's deft and driving Far Celestial Shore, Funkadelic's Can You Get To That, and Pops Staples' uplifting I Like The Things About Me.
Staples' last collaboration with Tweedy, You Are Not Alone, earned her the highest Billboard chart debut of her 50+ year career, her first Grammy award, and universal critical acclaim. NPR enthused, "she could move a listener to tears," while People Magazine said she "provides the comfort of a higher power." She also provided one of the most indelible moments of the 2013 Grammy telecast with a moving tribute to Levon Helm alongside Elton John, Mumford & Sons, Brittany Howard (The Alabama Shakes), T Bone Burnett, and Zac Brown.
