Northern soul & 50s Rock n Roll inspired second studio album from the UK’s The Computers. The Computers started out as a hardcore / rock n roll hybrid and have built a strong fanbase across Europe through excessive touring over the last couple of years in true punk style. They’ve toured with tons of bands such as The Duke Spirit, Jim Jones Revue, Hundred Reasons, Alexisonfire, Subways and Pulled Apart By Horses. This new album is a huge leap forward in terms of the sound, songwriting and style of the band, which will expand their audience and really take them to the next level.
The brand new album from Blue, fresh off the back from their feature in ITV2’s hit show The Big Reunion. Blue are one of the most successful British acts of the last decade, selling more than 15 million albums worldwide, with all three of the band’s previous studio albums having reached the #1 slot. They will be performing live at an almost sold out, exclusive 02 Shepherds Bush Empire gig on Friday 3rd May. A frisson of excitement is rippling through their camp as the now grown up Blue are due to release their first studio album ‘Roulette’ in over a decade. Watch the single ‘Hurt Lovers’ here.
Artist: The Black Ghosts
Release: When Animals Stare
Label: Southern Fried Records
Genre: Dance – Lounge – Chillout
Southern Fried Records release the wonderfully emotive acoustic version of The Black Ghosts’ critically acclaimed album, ‘When Animals Stare’, accompanied by a series of live videos. The Black Ghosts are singer/songwriter Simon ‘Skywave’ Lord and production wizard Theo ‘Fake Blood’ Keating’, two artists with successful solo careers who came together to create a unique fusion of folk tinged songwriting and electronic production. The album is a re-recorded imagining of the LP, on which Simon Lord takes center stage delivering heartfelt and brutally open versions of each of the songs.
A confrontational slice of indie splendor, Civil War is a game changing tune for the Edinburgh band who first grabbed attention in 2012. Properly heralding the much-discussed return of guitar music, this is a blistering pop song driven by lyrical and instrumental brilliance. The first single from their second album, again produced by Paul Savage (The Delgados, Franz Ferdinand, Arab Strap, Mogwai, Teenage Fanclub) at the hallowed Chem 19 studios, Civil War shows a growing maturity from these young rock recruits barely into their 20s.
