Joyner Lucas × Lil Tjay – Dreams Unfold

GRAMMY Award-nominated rapper Joyner Lucas premieres a thought-provoking collaboration with Bronx superstar Lil Tjay. Joyner Lucas X Lil Tjay’s “Dreams Unfold” is available now via Lucas’ own Twenty Nine Music Group label at all DSPs and streaming services. Directed by Ben Proulx and Joyner Lucas, “Dreams Unfold” is a satirical take on the influence of today’s hip-hop culture on their young impressionable fans. Children watch in awe as their role models glorify sex, drugs and violence. When shown from the point of view of the kids, the message is most clear: let’s be better role models. 

On September 5th, Joyner Lucas presented Joyner Fest in his hometown of Worcester, Massachusetts. He will be performing alongside Lil Skies and Milliz at The Palladium Outdoors. Tickets are available for purchase HERE

“Dreams Unfold” follows the Worcester rapper’s collaboration with Lil Baby, “Ramen & OJ,” which topped out on Spotify’s RapCaviar playlist with Joyner as the cover and currently has over 60 million streams on Spotify. Moreover, fans can also enjoy Lucas’ track “Shoot My Shot” on the official Space Jam 2 Soundtrack. His latest album, EVOLUTION, is available now at all DSPs and streaming services via Twenty Nine Music Group/TheOrchard. The album includes such tracks as “Like A River (Feat. Elijah James),” “Snitch,” and “Fall Slowly (Feat. Ashanti),” all joined by official music videos streaming now at YouTube.

“Dreams Unfold” is a fully independent production, created with the groundbreaking artists platform, Tully, with distribution with Twenty Nine Music Group. Co-founded by Lucas and manager/technology entrepreneur Dhruv Joshi, the Tully Platform empowers Artists and Artist Management teams to control their workflows while managing work product and studio assets in one place. By reducing his overheads, Lucas was able to put all his focus and the power of his team behind the track’s creation to create a truly one-of-a-kind collaboration. Lucas hopes to inspire other independent artists to do it their own way going forward. Tully is available now via Apple’s App Store and Google Play; for more information, please click HERE.

THIRD MAN RECORDS ANNOUNCE LONDON STORE

OPENING ON SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 25 IN THE HEART OF SOHO, LONDON

ANNOUNCE EXCLUSIVE THIRD MAN RELEASES FROM UK ARTISTS LIKE PAUL WELLER, DAVID RUFFIN, THE JESUS & MARY CHAIN, CORNERSHOP, GINA BIRCH OF THE RAINCOATS, AND THE MAGIC ROUNDABOUT IN CELEBRATION OF THE STORE OPENING

Jack White and Third Man Records have announced the opening of their Third Man Records London Store, their first location outside the USA. Situated on Marshall Street in the heart of London’s historic Soho—an area renowned for its rich musical history—the London store will complete a trio of Third Man physical spaces that includes buildings in Nashville, TN and Detroit, MI. The new location will feature a two-level retail space, an intimate live music venue named “The Blue Basement,” and a European headquarters for the label.

Located at 1 Marshall Street, London W1F 9BA, the store will officially open to the public on Saturday, September 25. It has been personally designed by Third Man founder Jack White, who recently launched Jack White Art & Design via a comprehensive multimedia website cataloguing two decades of his award-winning creative work, alongside the Third Man creative hive of artists. The store was conceptualized and created throughout 2020 and 2021 during the Covid-19 pandemic, with the aim of creating a physical space to help keep record sales and live performances alive after such a tough period for everyone.

Furthermore, in celebration of the opening, Third Man Records approached some of their favorite ever UK artists—Paul Weller, David Ruffin, The Jesus & Mary Chain, Cornershop, Gina Birch of The Raincoats and the great, lost Manchester group The Magic Roundabout—to record something brand new or contribute something previously unheard to the Third Man catalogue. These exclusive releases will be available to buy on black vinyl on September 25 from the Third Man Webstore (soon to be expanding to the UK/EU), at all three Third Man Records stores, and independent record shops everywhere, and on very limited edition yellow vinyl in the Third Man London store only.

Third Man Records London will be multi-functional, tripling up as a two-level retail space, an intimate live music venue named “The Blue Basement,” and a European headquarters for Third Man Records. It will feature a host of the kind of quirks, details and idiosyncrasies Third Man have become renowned around the world for.

These include a Third Man Records token-operated lucky dip book machine designed by the Toronto-based artist Craig Small. Titled the “Literarium,” it is only the second of its kind in the world and much loved by the likes of Margaret Atwood. The store will also feature a Third Man Records token-operated recording booth where artists and the public can record their own material straight to vinyl.

The official announcement follows much speculation and guesswork from eagle-eyed Third Man fans, who noticed the painting of eight fake, rotating store fronts at the 1 Marshall Street address. These fronts included Swank’s Muscle Tee Emporium, Jack Sharp’s Upholstery Tacks and Harry Lime’s Penicillin, all of which claimed to be under the umbrella of the fantastical Absurd Scam Family of Businesses. Last week, all UK subscribers to Third Man Records’ The Vault subscription service received a physical invitation for September 25 to the grand opening of one of these scam companies.

Simon Beck × The Sparks Brothers Film

Internationally acclaimed land artist Simon Beck has created a giant drawing of the band Sparks Brothers Ron & Russell Mael – on the beach at Brean, near Burnham on Sea, UK, to celebrate the acclaimed release of the film The Sparks Brothers.

“We’ve seen fan art, Sparks tattoos, Sparks fashion design, Sparks cosplay, etc., etc., but this is absolutely amazing in its scope and ambition. The remoteness of the location and the temporal quality of the beach sand drawings only adds to the sheer stunning head-shaking quality of it all. Yikes. Coming soon to a beach near you.” Ron and Russell Mael, Sparks.

Directed by Edgar Wright (Baby Driver, Shaun of The Dead, Hot Fuzz), The Sparks Brothers explores the career of the hugely influential band who first came to prominence in the UK in 1974 with the hit single “This Town Ain’t Big Enough For Both Of Us” and who have now released 25 genre-defying albums in their extraordinary 50-year career.

A now-familiar sight on the Somerset beach, 62-year-old Taunton-based Simon Beck creates perfect, detailed geometrical designs using a rake and a magnetic compass. The former cartographer created his first design on snow (by running in snow shows) in the Alps in 2004, and his first sand design in 2014. The drawing of Sparks is Simon’s 175 design on the beach at Brean.

Josh A Releases New Album Lonely Vibes

Today, rising singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer Josh A releases his much-anticipated new album, LONELY VIBES. Hailed for his malleable hybrid of pop, emo rap, and alternative rock, Josh A has amassed more than 1 billion worldwide combined streams and views, all while still under the mainstream radar and completely independent. LONELY VIBES threads together dexterous rhymes, surges of dynamic rock, and flashes of ethereal electronics into a cohesive story with a deliberate arc meant to mirror his own self-actualization.
“There’s a progression in terms of the message,” Josh explains. “The album starts out really depressed. As it unfolds, I’m building up my confidence. That happened in real life during the making of the record too. I broke through my comfort zone and gained confidence in my artistic ability. It’s a picture of someone who goes through the lowest of lows and slowly bounces back through self-reflection. After you accept yourself and embrace who you are, you become unstoppable.”
LONELY VIBES was heralded earlier this year with the releases of the infectious singles “Painless,” “ANXIOUS (Feat. guccihighwaters),” produced with Southern Beatz, and “Doubt Me,” recorded with co-producer/engineer Andrew Wade (A Day To Remember, Motionless In White). PAINLESS (THE REMIXES) was also released earlier this year. The three-track collection includes dynamic new versions reworked by such luminaries as Dutch DJ/producer Arcando, GRAMMY Award-nominated production duo SMLE, and Bordeaux, FR-based producer/DJ Coopex.
“Lonely Vibes encompasses my existence,” Josh says. “I moved out at 18, and I’ve always lived on my own. I thrive on being alone. It’s when I work my hardest. It’s a term I’ve used online, and it’s become a lifestyle. I think a lot of people can relate.
“There are so many vibes and styles on the album that it can pretty much fit anybody’s taste,” he continues. “I’m showing the world everything I’m capable of. There are angrier tracks you can rage to, hype tracks you can go crazy to, and tracks you can really take to heart. As long you get five minutes of peace from the craziness of the world, that’s the main goal for me.”

Maggie Rose – Are We There Yet

MAGGIE ROSE SHARES NEW SINGLE ARE WE THERE YETLISTEN 

New Album, Have A Seat, Arrives Everywhere Friday, August 20 

Have A Seat Album Release Tour Kicks Off This Weekend In Annapolis, Md

Pre-order Have A Seat

Today, the Nashville-based rock and soul singer-songwriter Maggie Rose shares Are We There Yet, the newest single from her upcoming album, Have A Seat, following the releases of the songs Do It, What Are We Fighting For, For Your Consideration, and Saint. Have A Seat is due out on August 20 via Starstruck Records. The album was recorded live at FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals, AL, and was produced by Ben Tanner (Alabama Shakes).

Garden & Gun exclusively premiered Are We There Yet earlier today, calling the song an apt entry point to Have a Seat and to Rose’s catalog as a whole, and goes on to say, ‘Are We There Yet’ shows an artist at the top of her craft, and only improving.

LISTEN TO ARE WE THERE YET

Rose heralded the release of Have A Seat with a three-part video series that combined to create an in-depth story. The music video trilogy concept was the brainchild of close friend and acclaimed photographer/videographer Ford Fairchild.

I was lucky enough to watch Maggie bring Have A Seat to life from the beginning and one thing I noticed was how much personal growth she worked through in making this record, says Fairchild. You could tell she was stepping into an alternate universe every time she was in work mode. So when it came time to figure out creative direction, I wanted to show that growth with Maggie working through it over dinner with different versions of herself.

The trilogy began with What Are We Fighting For. It was followed by Saint and then finally For Your Consideration.

We really wanted viewers to get to know the different sides of Maggie individually so we decided to do that in a trilogy, with ‘For Your Consideration’ bringing them all together, continues Fairchild. The dinner table signifies the body of work as a whole so you’ll see nods to each song on the record throughout the trilogy.

Like any great soul singer, Rose beautifully captures the tensions of the current moment, gently presenting her pensive social commentary while providing a much-needed reprieve from the everyday chaos. These songs were written during a contentious time, and there are undertones to the lyrics that are influenced by the state of our world politics and the politics of the music industry, she says. The title Have a Seat is responsible, placing an emphasis on inclusivity, like, Here, sit down. Let’s try talking to each other.’ One of the most loving things we can do is listen and make others feel heard, give people the space to speak their minds and be themselves. However, there’s also an intended meaning to the title that points to the power in occupying the seat that’s designated to you: I am claiming a seat I believe is rightfully mine, and I want others to do the same.

Rose kicked off her extensive album release tour yesterday for the first show of a two-night stand at Rams Head On Stage in Annapolis, MD. See tour dates and purchase tickets here.

About Maggie Rose

Maggie Rose is a Nashville-based singer/songwriter who has dreamed up her own unbridled collision of rock n’ roll, soul, folk, funk, and R&B. She is about to release her third studio album, Have a Seat. Produced by Ben Tanner of Alabama Shakes, Have a Seat came to life at the iconic FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals, AL. In a series of pre-pandemic sessions, Rose recorded live with a lineup of heavy-hitters that includes bassist David Hood of the Swampers (the group of session musicians who played on records from legends like Aretha Franklin and Etta James) and guitarist Will McFarlane (Bonnie Raitt, Levon Helm), along with her longtime bandmates/collaborators Larry Florman (background vocals/percussion), Alex Haddad (guitars), and Sarah Tomek (drums) of Them Vibes. Also featuring an esteemed string section and swampy horn ensemble, in a way that’s never been so integral to Rose’s sonic aesthetic, Have a Seat continues the free-flowing musical exploration she first began on her powerhouse 2018 album Change the Whole Thing. Centered on the stunning vocal command she’s revealed in taking the stage at The Grand Ole Opry over 80 times, Have a Seat finds Rose approaching her music with more confidence and clarity of vision than ever, ultimately sharing a selection of songs both timeless and urgent. In 2019, Rose toured with Heart, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, and Kelly Clarkson. She also shared the Cayamo Cruise bill with Emmylou Harris and Jason Isbell.

Summer of Sorcery Live!

Professionally filmed and recorded before a sold-out crowd at New York City’s historic Beacon Theatre on November 6, 2019, the live concert extravaganza, Summer Of Sorcery Live! At The Beacon Theatre, expertly captures Little Steven, aka Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Stevie Van Zandt, bringing the house down with his band the Disciples of Soul as they showcase their acclaimed 2019 album, Summer Of Sorcery, a 12-track record about the first rush of summer and the electric feeling of unlimited possibilities.

The full two-and-a-half-hour concert – the triumphant hometown culmination of the Summer of Sorcery’s European and U.S. tours – is out now via Wicked Cool Records/UMe in a variety of formats including Blu-ray video as well as audio-only versions on 3CD and as a limited edition 5LP 180-gram “Psychedelic Psorcery Pswirl” color vinyl box set, which is exclusively available via uDiscoverMusic  and LittleSteven.com. The Blu-ray features the entire concert in HD video with the audio offered in both stereo and 5.1 surround sound to provide the next best possible experience to being at the rock ‘n’ soul revue. The live album, which was mixed by Bob Clearmountain and mastered by Bob Ludwig, both career-long collaborators, includes thrilling performances of every song from Summer of Sorcery alongside tracks from throughout Van Zandt’s solo career, songs he wrote for Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes, and some souped-up covers.

Little Steven and the Disciples of Soul were joined throughout the Summer of Sorcery tour by an array of legendary friends and family. Summer of Sorcery Live! At The Beacon Theatre is highlighted by a surprise appearance by the one and only Peter Wolf, who lends his inimitable vocals to powerhouse versions of J Geils Band’s “Freeze Frame” and Artists United Against Apartheid’s landmark protest anthem, “Sun City.”

Summer Of Sorcery Live! At The Beacon Theatre is rounded out with nearly an extra hour of live music featuring seven previously unreleased bonus performances recorded throughout 2017-2019, including with such superstar special guests as Australian music legends Jimmy Barnesand Peter Garrett, longtime friend and E Street Band bandmate Nils Lofgren, and the legendary Nick Gravenites, who joins Van Zandt for a spectacular rendition of the Electric Flag’s“Groovin’ Is Easy.” In addition, Peter Wolf returns for an explosive cover of The Showstoppers’hit, “(Ain’t Nothin’ But A) Houseparty,” recorded during the Soulfire Tour but, according to Van Zandt, “too good to leave on the shelf.” The festivities come to a rousing conclusion with a star-studded version of “Sun City,” which edits together performances with Jimmy Barnes, Jake Clemons, Sam Fender, Peter Garrett, Courtney Hadwin, Garland Jeffreys and Bruce Springsteen.

“We were born freaks, misfits, and outcasts,” Van Zandt writes in the album’s liner notes, which also include personal comments about each performance. “We got into this business because no other would have us. While we were here we figured we might as well create a world of our own, because we didn’t fit in the one we were being offered. Being on the road with a band is the ultimate manifestation of that fantasy. Together you travel, you perform, you dispense joy, and you get to see the world while avoiding it at the same time.

“Such was the case with the troubadour missionaries and part-time exorcists known as the Disciples of Soul as they sprinkled enlightenment to a dark world from May 27, 2017 to November 6, 2019. First as the Soulfire was lit in the overture and finally as the Summer of Sorcery played out its magical denouement. Herein embodies the still sparkling evidence of the latter, that which began as stranger’s prayers imagined and ended as a family’s promise fulfilled. Enjoy it at as much as we did at whatever volume is required to force your neighbors to call the cops.”

Arranged and produced by Van Zandt, with production assistance by GRAMMY® Award-winner Geoff Sanoff (Bruce Springsteen, Stephen Colbert). Summer of Sorcery Live! At The Beacon Theatre kicks off with a very special introduction from counterculture icon Wavy Gravy and from there traverses across Little Steven’s genre-smashing body of work, from Summer of Sorceryand 2017’s acclaimed solo return, Soulfire through classic songs and fan favorites from the songwriter, guitarist and band leader’s illustrious career, including an incendiary three-song salvo celebrating his work with Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes (“Little Girl So Fine,” “Trapped Again,” and “Love On The Wrong Side Of Town”). Further highlights include spectacular covers of The Youngbloods’ “On Sir Francis Drake,” The Dovells’ “Bristol Stomp,” The Animals’ “Club-A-Go-Go,” and Bruce Springsteen’s “Tucson Train.”

Summer of Sorcery arrived in May 2019 and was immediately greeted by worldwide critical applause with Rolling Stone exclaiming, “it largely dispenses with protest songs and revels in the rock, soul and R&B of his Sixties youth,” adding it’s “the most eclectic record he’s ever made.” Van Zandt and his collaborators “pull out all the stops to make this sonic smorgasbord explode out of the speakers with passion and clout,” wrote American Songwriter. “Few artists have the artistic vision to pull off a thunderous production like this which is impressive in its scope and sheer booming audio audacity.” “A happy return for the Jersey Shore prince,” declared MOJO, while Classic Rock raved, “(Van Zandt’s) tangible labour of love defiantly captures old-school New York’s cross-pollinating melting pot with rich infusions of Latin (‘Party Mambo!’), blues (‘I Visit The Blues’), blaxploitation (‘Vortex’), classic rock ‘n’ roll (‘Superfly Terraplane’), Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes (‘Soul Power Twistin’’) and still making a social point on ‘Education,’” adding, “This unashamed celebration of endangered music and city life also makes a great party soundtrack.” “It’s all but impossible not to be impressed by the scope of Little Steven’s vision,” wrote All Music, “and the skill with which he and his collaborators bring it to fruition…Imagine Asbury Park, New Jersey encompassing an entire musical planet and you’ll have an idea of what Little Steven & the Disciples of Soul are doing on Summer of Sorcery, and if you dig rockin’ soul, this should be right up your alley.”

Van Zandt recently announced the publication of his first ever memoir, Unrequited Infatuations, due September 28 from Hachette Books; pre-orders are available now HERE. An epic tale of self-discovery, Unrequited Infatuations chronicles the twists and turns of Van Zandt’s always surprising life, from a bedroom in suburban New Jersey in the early ‘60s to the world’s largest stages in not only entertainment but activism as well. More than just the testimony of a globe-trotting nomad, more than the story of a groundbreaking activist, more than the odyssey of a spiritual seeker, and more than a master class in rock ‘n’ roll (not to mention a dozen other crafts), Van Zandt’s extraordinary odyssey shows how rock and soul has the power to change the world.

2021 has already seen the release of another live collection, Macca To Mecca!, a spectacular tribute to the Beatles available now via Wicked Cool/UMe on CD/DVD. The 14-track album/concert film – which includes a riveting performance of “I Saw Her Standing There,” recorded at London’s famed Roundhouse and featuring a special appearance by Paul McCartney – captures Little Steven and the Disciples of Soul’s extraordinary surprise set at Liverpool’s legendary Cavern Club during the band’s sold out 2017 European tour. The intimate lunchtime gig was a salute to the kind of shows the Beatles used to play in their early days when they would perform for local secretaries, clerks and shopkeepers during their half hour lunch break. Van Zandt decided to bring that unique idea back 50 plus years later for a rollicking, jam-packed daytime set filled that honored the band with rocking renditions of “Magical Mystery Tour,” “Good Morning, Good Morning,” “Got To Get You Into My Life,” and “All You Need Is Love,” alongside iconic songs famously performed by the nascent Fab Four, including “Boys” (originally by The Shirelles), “Slow Down” (by Larry Williams) and “Soldier Of Love” (first recorded by Arthur Alexander).

Shadows EP is the first record Zero 7 has released in a decade. The wait was worth the time. – AMERICAN SONGWRITER

Shadows EP has all the feel-good, downtempo hallmarks of Zero 7 with the addition of Stone’s singer/songwriter sensibility. Stone’s voice is one of the connective threads of these songs, but it also has a malleable quality that wraps itself around the varied styles. He slips and slides over the polished strings of the shimmering title track and taps into his falsetto for the quiet and understated Outline. – FLOOD

Although a Londoner by birth, much of Lou’s youth was spent in Sydney, playing in local bands and exploring his ever-growing passion for music. It was while studying in Australia that Lou Stone fully realized his true calling was music, so he swiftly left Sydney behind to busk his way around the cities of Europe, performing early versions of his songs in diy mly lit streets and on metro station platforms. He now finds himself back where it all began, in London, and has spent recent years honing his craft, writing and recording, with 2019 bearing the first fruits of his output in the shape of an independently released debut EP.

Still relatively new to the scene, his rich, evocative, and versatile vocals haven’t gone unnoticed, with Lou picking up support from the likes of The Independent, The Line Of Best Fit, Clash, high profile playlistings from Spotify, and of course the ears of Zero 7. The future looks bright for this exceptional talent.

Rodrigo and Gabriela Announce ‘By Request’ Tour

RODRIGO Y GABRIELA ANNOUNCE BY REQUEST US TOUR FOR FALL 2O21; INVITE THEIR FANS TO PICK THE SONGS THEY WANT TO HEAR LIVE

Grammy-winning guitar duo Rodrigo y Gabriela are back on the road in America from September 1, their first US shows in two years. Their plans to tour their 2019 studio album METTAVOLUTION were denied by the pandemic, and Rod and Gab spent much of lockdown in the Mexican studio space, doing regular online sessions, including one-off cover versions, old album favorites, and even vegan cookery and mindfulness classes.

Thrilled to be back on the road; for this new By Request tour, the band have elected to hand over setlist selection to their American fanbase. Rodrigo says, On the Mettavolution tour in 2019, we played the whole of that album. Here we are, two years later, and we have decided to let the fans choose what songs they want to hear from us on the ‘By Request’ tour.

Rodrigo y Gabriela have posted a long list of songs on their website and their social media platforms, repertoire covering 20 years of playing their unique brand of fiery acoustic rock together; with an invitation to fans to select the songs they want to hear played live on the By Request tour. Gabriela adds: We are so excited to be getting back out on the road again. The ‘By Request’ tour puts the setlist in the hands of the fans. We can’t wait to see what songs they pick.

A voting page for fans has been set up on their website, and there will be invitations to cast votes on Rodrigo y Gabriela’s social media platforms going out later today.
