DAVID BOWIE LP

AVAILABLE FOR THE FIRST TIME AS LIMITED EDITION PICTURE DISC

RELEASED JANUARY 29, 2021 BY UMe/DECCA/DERAM EXCLUSIVELY VIA HERE.

Deram Records originally released David Bowie‘s self-titled debut album on June 1, 1967, the very same day as The Beatles Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart Club Band. While it was not a hit at the time, over the past 50 years it’s gained a reputation for being a perfect snapshot of the time and has earned plaudits for being one of the first contemporary pop albums to be sung in an English accent. Bowie himself revisited songs from this era in 2000 re-recording the likes of “Silly Boy Blue” for an album called Toy which remains unreleased.

The album may not have been a huge success but there were music writers who saw something in Bowie, the NME called it “All very refreshing” and that he was “a very promising talent.”

The biography prepared at the time describes David Bowie thus “His remarkable powers of observation enable him to write with humour and wit about the people, loved and unloved, and the attitudes, lovely and unlovely, that constitute today’s society. A recent bout of ‘flu enabled him to pen half a dozen songs to go on a forthcoming Deram LP. In fact, David is one of the very few artists commissioned for an album before a single. Simultaneously, David is writing songs and situations for a colour film in which he is to star and putting the finishing touches to a unique cabaret act.


The album will be released for the first time as picture disc on January 29th and will be made available exclusively HERE.

Icona Pop – Feels In My Body

Global chart-topping duo Icona Pop are back following their 2020 smash collaborations with heavyweights Steve Aoki and Hayden James, this time with another banger called “Feels In My Body,” which is out now via RECORD COMPANY TEN/ULTRA Music. The song also comes paired with a music video, shot by director Gustav Stegfors and acclaimed Director of Photography, Crille Forsberg (David Bowie, Adele, ZAYN). Watch HERE

Speaking about their new feel good-summer jam, Icona Pop’s Caroline Hjelt and Aino Jawo reveal, “Feels In My Body is all about hitting your peak, being so full of energy that you want to burst and share it with everyone around you.”

Listen to “Feels In My Body” HERE. 

“Feels In The Body” follows two massive collaborations this year for Icona Pop, including “Right Time,” with Australian producer and songwriter Hayden James, which Rolling Stone said “captures the feeling of the dance floor during this time of isolation,” and “I Love My Friends,” the lead single off Steve Aoki’s recent album, Neon Future IV.

Swedish chart-topping duo Icona Pop continue to slay since their 2013 full-length debut, This Is… Icona Pop, which garnered critical acclaim from the likes of Pitchfork and Rolling Stone as the duo performed on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Today Show, Good Morning America, and America’s Got Talent in addition to featuring on the iconic HBO series Girls and a popular Saturday Night Live sketch. They canvased the globe on sold out tours with Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, and One Direction and joined Tiësto for the banger “Let’s Go” in 2014. Along the way, the duo has performed alongside everyone from Avicii to The Chainsmokers as well as gracing the stages of Ultra, Tomorrowland, Mark Ronson’s Club Heartbreak, and more. Since then, they have consistently filled the gap in music when it comes to upbeat, carefree, quality dance-pop.

Last year, the girls DJ’d across Europe, Asia and North America as well as released a string of bangers including their Yves V and Afrojack collaboration for “We Got That Cool.” In addition, IconaPop continued their message of inclusivity, self-acceptance and positivity on the road for their WorldPride tour, culminating with a show-stopping performance at Stockholm Pride that included a special appearance from Sporty Spice herself, Melanie C.

Arpionth, 360 MAGAZINE, Vaughn Lowery

Arpionth

Every once in awhile we discover a newfangled talent who dares to be different. Arpionth is the next generation of EDM. Sultry and sensual melodic instrumentation at it’s finest. A swedish phenomenon.

“Hope” thrives on cinematic creativity and indulges all senses. Your heart will pump while waves crash.

“Destiny” opens up with tons of faithful synergy. Once the beat drops so will your soul. Throbbing. Pulsating.

“Origin” marks newfound territory with systemic beats which power through tradition. Being present isn’t enough. To recognize your past is to know your perfection.

“Above” pushes the envelope. Like a bird, the rhythmic cadence will make you flutter. Higher and higher your imagination will float amongst the swarms.

“Fight” treads on fear. Feisty yet temperamental instrumentation will tantalize your inner existence.

“Continue” is a rotational pull. Everlasting and meaningful. Nothing can stand in the room of an orbit.

“Return” is sinister. A notational menstrual cycle.

“Change” is a seasonal reflection of emotions. You can visualize leaves turn from green to amber.

“Then” will transpire your soul. Strings and snares are on a downward spiral romance.

“Past” mimics a crispness of affairs. Up beat and responsive to what’s to come.

“Time” ticks like a elegant piece of machinery. Poignant and peaceful.

“Now” streams the senses. You can actually smell the stark stench of collateral damage.

“Be” proves to be one of the more sensible tracks with an alien-like heart beat. Allow your mind to ramble around a viscous surface. It’s all about building community!

“Clouds” is anthemic. Parallel to a derivative. A heavenly tune erupting with angelic memories.

Arpionth has a special talent to cure a thirsty mind. His ability to chime into uncharted territory is what makes him a big contender for our “360 Watchlist.” Concrete Creativity III circumvents ongoing sensory seizures. A filmic treasure of tasty creatures.

TV On The Radio

“For various reasons this record means a LOT to us and we’re thrilled have a chance to play it in its entirety, in New York, nonetheless. I’d say it’s gonna be a special night.” -Tunde Adebimpe

Yesterday, TV On The Radio announced a concert to celebrate the 10th anniversary of their groundbreaking album “Dear Science” to be performed on September 20, 2018, at Knockdown Center in New York. The band will play the album in its entirety. Tickets may be purchase HERE.

TV on the Radio has been called “the most vital band in America” (Associated Press), “one the most compelling rock and roll stories of the modern age” (BBC), “the most innovative band on the planet” (AV Club) and simply “superb” (Rolling Stone). In short, TV on the Radio established themselves as the most groundbreaking musicians of this generation and one of the most influential bands of the decade.

The band’s 2008 album Dear Science was voted #1 by fans in Pitchfork’s Reader’s Poll and the #1 album in the Village Voice’s Pazz and Jop poll (composed of reviews by more than 800 critics). TV on the Radio consistently confounds expectations while managing to balance respect from critics and peers alike.

Grammy nominated, TV On The Radio – Tunde Adebimpe, Jaleel Bunton, Kyp Malone, Dave Sitek and formerly the late Gerard Smith has been awarded the Short List Music Prize, asked by David Bowie to collaborate, performed on every continent, sold out both the Apollo Theater and Radio City Music Hall, graced the stages of every late night show including Saturday Night Live, and shot a music video with Pee Wee Herman.

Praise for DEAR SCIENCE:

“TV On the Radio’s third album proper, managed to pull off something rather special: it boldly took guitars where no album had gone before. And it did so with more creativity, daring and flair than any record since Radiohead’s OK Computer.” -The Guardian

“Dear Science is a brilliant balancing act between pop aspiration and music-geek aesthetics.” -Rolling Stone

“On ‘Dear Science,’TVOTR embraces emotions of the here and now — lust, anger, the dancer’s bliss.” -Ann Powers Los Angeles Times

“Career-defining stuff.” -The Guardian

“Yes, this is shit-hot thrilling music. But it’s also brainy and ambivalent, and more engaging for it.” -Pitchfork

“TV on the Radio traded its noisiness for clarity, the better to reveal the workings of its ambitious, multilayered songs: programming and hands-on playing, rock and funk, elegies and dance grooves, accusations and embraces. Each song follows its own idiosyncratic path from mourning to affirmation.” – New York Times

Few singers can command an audience’s attention quite like Albin Lee Meldau,

his voice is breathtaking, soulful, thunderous and impossible to ignore

NPR Music

Albin has already proven himself to be a powerful storyteller on deeply affecting songs such as Same Boat, Bloodshot, Lou Lou. First and foremost, He considers himself a musical journalist who not only documents what he feels, but also what he sees. But before you discover his gift for weaving emotion, detail, and humanity into a unique blend of classic soul and modern pop production, you will hear his voice and be bowled over.

2018 is shaping up to be a breakthrough year for Albin, a singer-songwriter who hails from Gothenburg, Sweden, the son of a Swedish jazz singer mom and a British punk rocker dad. His debut album follows two impressive EPs that have already notched 30 million streams on Spotify. Last year he made his debut at SXSW and Bonnaroo, and NPR Music invited him to perform on their popular Tiny Desk Concert series. Albin was nominated for Best Newcomer at the 2017 Grammis (Sweden’s Grammy Awards) and won the 2016 Anchor Award, an international competition hosted by the Reeperbahn Festival in Germany that seeks out the best new emerging talent. He was selected by a jury that included producer Tony Visconti (David Bowie) who sang Albin’s praises in presenting him the award. Something is pouring out of his heart and soul when he sings.
