Taking it to another level whilst keeping alive the great Folk/Rock movement The Felice Brothers have delivered the album of their career. UK tour in June around release and again in August.

The Felice Brothers kicked off in 2006. They did what any delinquent youths, lost in upstate New York with dim job prospects would do: become obsessed with traveling the world and playing extremely loud rock and roll. After settling on minor matters like who plays what (Ian Felice- vocals/guitar, James Felice- accordion/keys/vocals, Greg Farleyfiddle/vocals, Josh Rawson- bass/vocals. Recent addition David Estabrook- old friend/new drummer – completes the current line up), the band procured instruments, cans of sardines and packed up tents and devoted their lives to studying the art of song craft. It was a long way to the top. The Felice Brothers' new album 'Favorite Waitress' marked the first time the band ever recorded in a proper studio. Produced by the band's longtime producer and collaborator Jeremy Backofen, the album is their most fully realized statement yet. st

The LP version of this album will be released 21 July 2014.

Anathema return in June with distant satellites, their brand new studio album "Distant Satellites is the culmination of everything Anathema been working up to so far in our musical path. It contains almost every conceivable element of the heartbeat of Anathema music that it is possible to have" – Anathema 2014 Distant Satellites is the highly anticipated follow up to Anathema's critically acclaimed 2012's Weather Systems and last year's stunning concert film Universal directed by Lasse Hoile. Distant Satellites was recorded at Cederberg Studios in Oslo with favoured producer Christer-André Cederberg. Alongside additional mixing by Grammy Nominated Steven Wilson, Anathema also brought in the legendary services of Dave Stewart (Porcupine Tree, Steven Wilson) to create the new album's extraordinary orchestral arrangements. Anathema has been at the forefront of the UK rock movement since its inception, influencing a myriad of bands to follow. What began as a pioneering journey of melodic heavy music has outgrown all genres and limitations, fearlessly exploring new territories and new ways to express feeling through sound and now their star is rising ever higher. Distant Satellites will be instantly recognisable to Anathema's global army of ardent disciples as another chapter in this band's remarkable story. With a few strides into uncharted territory, not least the electronica-driven surge of the album's stunning title track, distant satellites will surely be recognised as not only their finest album to date but as one of the most celebrated and lauded albums of 2014. A gleaming anthology of beautifully crafted songs, performed with vitality, verve and utmost passion, once again demonstrating the sublime, instinctive song writing talents of the Cavanagh brothers and drummer John Douglas. Complementing the album is the beautifully ethereal artwork created by Korean new media artist Sang Jun Yoo, based around his Distant Light Installation in New York. Having returned from a sell out North American tour with HIM in March 2014 Anathema and are gearing up to begin extensively touring distant satellites starting with Australian dates, selected summer festivals and a tour across the Europe in the autumn. The double disc edition* of the album features a 5.1 surround sound mix courtesy of Jens Bogren (Opeth), and comes housed in a media book with 24 page booklet.

A Louisiana-native turned Nashville-resident, Mary Gauthier (it’s French - pronounced Go-SHAY) has had an extraordinary life. A teenage runaway who found her first shelter among addicts and drag queens, struggled with drug addiction and became a chef/owner of three restaurants in Boston before selling them in 2001 to become a full time songwriter. Mary’s songs have been praised by both Bob Dylan and Tom Waits and recorded by Jimmy Buffett, Blake Shelton, Boy George, Tim McGraw, Candi Staton amongst others.

More dates to be added. After years of measured success in the world of record deals and major labels, Gauthier has now taken the reins to her business. “I am now happily and successfully working with my own team outside of the major label model,” she says, “Taking back and claiming my power is the underlying theme of this project, and of my life.” "This album reflects a total human experience. Love, loss, and a life transformed." Gauthier sums up. "It's not a random collection of songs. This record is a story. It's about trust and faith and believing that there's a plan and a flow. And the flow is where the good stuff is because there's wisdom in the flow. At the core, we're all cut from the same cloth-- the same dreams, the same brokenness, the same desire for companionship and family and home. Yeah, we all have that. And if I don't go deep enough into that, it's a problem. "There's no such thing as going too deep." Amen to that.

£7.99

Touch and Flee is the new recording from Neil Cowley Trio, and marks a defining moment in the evolution of the band. It is their bravest, most daring album to date, spotlighting the everincreasing brilliance of Cowley as a composer. With long time band mates, Evan Jenkins on drums and Rex Horan on bass, they jump headlong into new territory to present what they describe as "our concert hall record" for an altogether deeper listening journey.

*Digital download distributed by Proper* Tour Dates 2014: 28th Jun - Jazz Festival, Glasgow 20th Jul - Latitude Festival, Suffolk 26th Sep - The Atkinson, Southport 01st Oct - Colston Hall, Bristol 03rd Oct - The Barbican, London 04th Oct - Turner Sims, Southampton 08th Oct - The Gate Arts Centre, Cardiff 09th Oct - Dome Corn Exchange, Brighton 10th Oct - SJE Arts at St John the Evangelist Church, Oxford 11th Oct – Sage, Gateshead 14th Oct - CBSO Centre, Birmingham 18th Oct - RNCM, Manchester 23rd Oct - Derry International Choral Festival 29th Oct - XOYO (Main Space), London

Gone are the familiar hook laden tunes, repeating riffs and pounding crescendos, replaced, in the main, by shifting, expansive melodies, longer elegant passages, and a broader brush stroke on Cowley's blank canvas. What is familiar though is Cowley's power to move through music. Exquisitely graceful movements meet with dark haunting passages. And although this is a new direction for Neil Cowley Trio, their personality, and unmistakable sound, still shines through. We hear, for example in the epic, sweeping, Kneel Down a three movement piece containing pulse, power, climax, spaciousness, and then, gentle surprise. The wonky jazz of Winterlude keeps the head nodding while Cowley's proclivity for atmospheric film scores remains. Undoubtedly, Cowley's confidence and maturity as a composer comes from his experiences of past years. Where Cowley's previous album saw him composing and arranging for trio and a twenty four piece string ensemble, his position last year as Musician in Residence for UK's City of Culture saw him take a crash course in choral harmony as he composed and arranged for a choir. Touch and Flee was recorded at the legendary RAK studios with Grammy nominated Dom Monks in the producer's chair. RAK has seen some of the biggest names in music record there - David Bowie, Al Green, Michael Jackson, Pink Floyd, Arctic Monkeys, and of course Adele, with whom Cowley recorded the global hit, Rolling In The Deep. Touch and Flee is the result of three gifted musicians who think as one, growing together, driving forward. A collection of tunes best savoured in a darkened room, at full volume. They demand attention, but as always, deliver to the listener the most blissful of rides. th

MAIS UM DISCOS

WORLD MUSIC

Brand new double CD compilation from the excellent Mais Um Discos label. 'Rolê' translates as 'let's roll' in Braziian Portuguese and Mais Um Discos' label head Lewis Robinson (aka Mais Um Gringo – 'one more gringo') rolled around ten Brazilian states including Rio de Janeiro, Bahia, Amazonas, Rio Grande do Sul, São Paulo, Minas Gerais, Brasília, Pernambuco, Pará and Santa Catarina to pull together these 43 tracks. Disc Um shows 22 very different artists defining their own styles and defying any stereotypes of Brazilian music. From the dub-tronics of the innovative Lucas Santtana to the angry indie-rock of Apanhador Só, Madame Rrose Selavy's 'bossa-punk', Graveola's`carnival-cannibalism` and the funky-frevo of Juliana Perdigão. Disc Dois heads into the club - showcasing the new wave of post baile-funk Brazilian dance music. The cutting edge axé bass beats of Som Peba, tecnho-lamabda of Strobo and electro-treme of Gang Do Eletro. A nod to the old school comes from Lia Sophia who offers up a slinky slice of nova-brega, Zulumbi with their rousing hip-hop funk, Dona Onete who introduces us to the sound of carimbo-chamegado, Meta Meta joined by Tony Allen for some afro-punk-beat and Bixiga 70 who drop a heavyweight slice of guitarrada-latinfun. The label has enjoyed huge support recently from the likes of Gilles Peterson and Cerys Matthews, who hosted a Mais Um Discos showcase on her BBC 6music show. Lewis Robinson (AKA label head Mais Um Gringo) has written multiple Guardian music features in the run up to the World Cup – the last was shared on Facebook 6000+ times.

Selwyn Birchwood, Florida's rising young blues fireball, is a guitar and lap steel playing bundle of pure energy. He delivers his original songs with a revival tent preacher's fervor and a natural storyteller's charisma made all the more impactful by his raw, unvarnished vocals. Birchwood plays high-octane blues - at once deeply rooted, funky and up-to-the-minute - with true passion and honest emotion. With his band feeding off his drive and exuberance, the striking 6'3" 29-year-old with his trademark Afro roams the stage (often barefoot), ripping out memorable guitar licks with ease. His ability to win over an audience - any audience - is proven night after night on the bandstand. "There's nothing I'd rather be doing than playing the blues," he says. "And I try to convey that with every song and with every performance." In 2013, Birchwood catapulted from local hero to shooting star. He won the world-renowned International Blues Challenge, beating out 125 other bands from the U.S. and abroad. He also took home the Albert King Guitarist Of The Year Award.

Hazy Sunshine is produced by Canadian musician Josh Finlayson, whilst the album was recorded over five days and wine filled nights at The Bathhouse, outside Kingston, Ontario. The album is a seamless blend of modern East Coast folk and rock & roll, with shades of classic Americana, roots and country haunting the edges. Always one to let the spirit guide a session in the studio rather than force things to turn out exactly how they are planned, the album welcomes a slightly more upbeat feel than his past solo records.

Johnathan Blake, one of the most in-demand drummers of his generation, has done stellar work as a member of the Tom Harrell Quintet,the MIngus Big Band,the Kenny Barron Trio, the Ravi Coltrane Quartet and many others. Blake now offers his first Criss Cross album as a leader, “Gone, But Not Forgotten”. The lineup is sparse but tremendously explosive -- how could it not be, with evolving tenor saxophone masters Chris Potter and Mark Turner paired alongside Ben Street on bass? As the title suggests, Gone, But Not Forgotten takes inspiration from greats in the jazz world who are no longer with us. That can be a somber subject, but Blake and his quartet convey a sense of the unbridled joy and invention. Such is the lesson taught by the departed players Blake has chosen to honor: Charles Fambrough, Trudy Pitts, Sid Simmons, Cedar Walton, Jim Hall, Mulgrew Miller, Paul Motian, Frank Foster, Frank Wess and Eddie Harris.

£7.60 ROCK

Live Evolution Lost: The 13th Floor Elevators Live at the Houston Music Theatre is the first ever release of the complete performance of the band’s legendary show from 18th February 1967. Though Roky Erickson was the frontman, the group's sound and philosophy were created by the unpredictable & impulsive Tommy Hall. The Elevators followed their own spiritual cosmic route searching for a new path to enlightenment whilst all the while creating a reputation for excess. The band developed a sound that merged garage-punk and psychedelic experimentation. Their music, from the beginning, played and created under the influence of LSD, was raw, ambitious and hugely experimental with Sutherland's pioneering use of reverb and echo, and bluesy, aciddrenched guitar mixed with Tommy Hall's innovative electric jug … ‘psychedelic rock’ was conceived. This two CD media-book edition catches the band with its classic line-up (with guitarist Stacy Sutherland, bass player Benny Thurman, and drummer John Ike Walton) before the release of ‘Easter Everywhere’ and is the only known complete recording of an Elevators’ gig, and the latest to survive. Put together by band expert Paul Drummond, who also contributes extensive liner notes and mastered by Sonic Boom (Spacemen 3), this release also includes one reel unissued for over forty-five years.

SOUL/R&B

Masterminded by the larger-than-life figure of George Clinton, Funkadelic was a key component of his influential P-Funk empire. Funkadelic's unique combination of Rock, Psychedelia and Soul led to the band to crossing over into the pop mainstream and gaining an international following, to become one of the most important groups in the evolution of funk. The last in a decade-long run of Top 50 R&B albums, The Electric Spanking Of War Babies was the band's twelfth studio LP and featured several players new to the Funkadelic line-up, notably Sly Stone. With its allusions to the Vietnam War and US imperialism, to paraphrase critic Robert Christgau, Clinton reached "into the disgusting depths of his drug-addled mind" for a project that was destined to court controversy from the start, not least for its uncompromising sleeve art which Warner Bros. demanded be changed. Originally conceived as a double album, many tracks saw release on Clinton's later P-Funk projects. Replicating the original artwork, this deluxe reissue includes an instrumental version of the title track and an authoritative essay by John Masouri. Tracks: The Electric Spanking Of War Babies / Electro-cuties / Funk Gets Stronger - Part 1 / Brettino's Bounce / Funk Gets Stronger (Killer Millimetre Longer Version) / She Loves You / Shockwaves / Oh, I / Icka Prick / The Electric Spanking Of War Babies (Instrumental) (Bonus Track)

Phenomenal debut album from the stunning and until now, undiscovered 73-year-old Amazonian songstress Dona Onete - the work of a lifetime on one CD. A vibrant blend of Paraense folklore,carimbó, boi bumba, Caribbean salsa, brega, samba and even rap, all rooted in the cultures of the Brazilian interior, this phenomenal debut album from Amazonian septuagenarian songstress Dona Onete has been over 60 years in the making and almost never happened… Completely enveloped by Amazonian culture and with her latent talents as a singer, Onete began to compose music for herself. Amassing a collection of over 300 original songs throughout her years, it wasn't until she retired that her musical career took off. Moving to the quiet area of Pedreira in Belém to while away the rest of her days with her husband, Onete inadvertently moved onto a street where popular Brazilian band Coletivo Radio Cipó lived. The band, hearing Dona perform at a local carimbó party and instantly invited her to sing on their forthcoming album. Onete took some convincing but eventually relented, a decision that would lead to her recording as an artist in her own right and see her audience of river dolphins on the banks of the Amazon transform into the people of the cities of Brazil, and soon the world. European tour in July 2014.

Songs like “Mirror In The Bathroom”, “Hands Off...She’s Mine”, “Doors Of Your Heart” and “Save It For Later” remain radio favourites to this day. Also included on the bonus CD are seven special dub remixes and an annotated booklet.
