Kings Of Leon label Serpents and Snakes will proudly release ‘Some Kind Of Salvation, the new album by Tennessee brethren The Features. Having toured with The Features supporting throughout the UK & US, the band fell in love with their sound, energy and explosive live show. “We’ve been long-time supporters of The Features, they’re one of the best undiscovered bands in the world and we’re excited to be releasing Some Kind of Salvation.” said Jared Followill of Kings of Leon. The band features Matthew Pelham (guitar,lead vocals), Roger Dabbs (bass guitar), Mark Bond (keyboards) and Rollum Haas (drums). ‘Some Kind Of Salvation’ weaves a sound that can be described as a bulging mix of scrappy white-boy soul. The Features’ influences run the gamut of popular music over the last 50 years, whereas some bands arrange certain songs to sound like this-or-that-era, The Features just let the musical pieces they've picked up through the years fall back into place, giving them an identity all their own. The Features will be touring Europe in April, as well as playing a few London shows in mid-February.

His first words unveil a voice that possesses as much soul as his guitar. That leap of faith, to trust in his voice, came at suggestion of Coco’s friend and three time Grammy winning artist Keb’ Mo’. In 2009, Coco Montoya found a new home in the old world. Europe’s premier blues label, Ruf Records, signed the guitar giant and is poised to bring Coco Montoya’s heart to a world audience.

FOLK

On THE TURNING TIDE, Solas delivers the raw instrumental virtuosity, the power, the rhythmic ‘hump’, and the dynamic vocal blend that no other band since The Bothy Band has mastered, and in the process showcases the band at the peak of its power. For over a decade, SOLAS has been recognized as the most influential IrishAmerican super group. After a personnel change prior to their last release when Co. Kilkenny-born vocalist Mairead Phelan joined the band, they have reemerged, unified once again. On 'THE TURNING TIDE', the band delivers the raw instrumental virtuosity, the power, the rhythmic ‘hump’, and the dynamic vocal blend that no other band since The Bothy Band has mastered, and in the process showcases the band at the peak of its power. 'THE TURNING TIDE' offers well-conceived set of tunes and songs that share an underlying theme of social commentary. It’s not a new idea for the band – past renditions of ‘Pastures of Plenty’ and ‘The Wind That Shakes the Barley’ are core songs in Solas’ repertoire – but it’s a concept that underscores the current mindset of the members of the band. Multi-instrumentalist and founding member Seamus Egan explains: “We’re not trying to preach or make a general statement about the world, it just happens to be the kind of material the individuals in the band have gravitated towards.” Renditions of Josh Ritter’s ‘Girl The War’, Bruce Springsteen’s ‘The Ghost of Tom Joad’, Richard Thompson’s ‘Poor Ditching Boy’ and Scottish folk-singer Karine Polwart’s ‘Sorry’ are as topical and engaging as anything SOLAS has ever done. SOLAS is Seamus Egan (flute, tenor banjo, mandolin, whistle, guitar and bodhran), Winifred Horan (fiddle), Mick McAuley (accordion and concertina), Eamon McElholm (guitar and keyboards) and vocalist Mairead Phelan.'THE TURNING TIDE' is certain to further SOLAS’ reputation as one of the most important standard-bearers of Irish music.

ABCDEFG NO MASTERS COOPERATIVE

FOLK

Seven letters to hint at what Chumbawamba have spent their adult lives doing: fashioning something weird, funny, eccentric and challenging from a seven-note Do-re-mi of possibilities. Or by another name, music. 'ABCDEFG' is musically eclectic and wide-ranging, from acapella to pop to folk to jazz, a mix-up of ideas to reflect its subject matter. That subject matter includes a gentle hymn to teenage under-the-pillow discovery of music heard on late-night transistor radio; a celebration of the marching songs written by soldiers in the First World War; the story of how people had to battle against State Communist ideology to play their music; a poke at the folk world’s obsession with collection and authenticity; the story of the concentration camp survivor who disrupted the first playing of Wagner in Israel by swinging a football rattle. There’s a lot of stuff on this album – both literate (Chumbawamba love to use music to talk about history, politics and philosophy) and funny (Chumbawamba would be the first people to poke holes in the seriousness of this history, politics and philosophy). The stuff on this album is played on a battery of instruments (by the band) and augmented superbly by contributions on various songs from: Chopper of Oysterband on cello, Jon Boden of Bellowhead on fiddle, Belinda O’Hooley (exUnthanks) on piano Tracks; Introduction / Voices, That’s All / Pickle / Wagner At The Opera / Underground / Torturing James Hetfield / The Devil’s Interval / Hammer, Stirrup & Anvil / Puccini Said / That Same So-So Tune / Singing Out The Days / You Don’t Exist / The Song Collector / Missed / Ratatatay / New York Song / Dance, Idiot, Dance Also available: NMCD23 'A SINGSONG AND A SCRAP' / NMCD26 'GET ON WITH IT' / NMCD28 'THE BOY BANDS HAVE WON'

Evocative old-school-samba soundtrack to acclaimed biopic of maverick, Brazilian football genius Garrincha Coincides with World Cup 2010 and looks towards Brazil hosting World Cup 2014 Garrincha is a true Brazilian legend, one of the all-time great footballers, he twice inspired Brazil to World Cup glory. This soundtrack is suitably of the period. With beautiful Ipanemas-esque soulful samba sitting alongside carnival batucada, darker cinematic experimentalism, and playful jazz funk, the majority was composed especially for ‘Estrela Solitaria’ by Leo Gandelman who captured Garrincha’s personality perfectly. Garrincha is Brazilian football, samba, the symbol of the nation’s music. ‘Lonely Star’ is the ultimate tribute to both, continuing Far Out’s love affair with Futebol.

“Glorious, rootsy R&B, gospel, blues and country. Full of soul and surprises.” –USA Today From winning multiple Blues Music Awards to sharing stages and recordings with Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Bruce Springsteen, Patti Smith, Willie Nelson, Lou Reed, Peter Gabriel, Merle Haggard, Keith Richards, Al Green, Ben Harper, Lucinda Williams, Steve Earle, Levon Helm, Rosanne Cash, Odetta, and The Jungle Brothers, The Holmes Brothers have seemingly done it all. Recently though, The Holmes Brothers confronted a stark reality when brother Wendell was diagnosed with cancer in 2008. Tight-knit on and off the stage, they found strength in their family, friendship and faith to overcome this setback. With Wendell’s victory over the disease, the group emerged fully energized and inspired to create the deepest, most original, most satisfying album of their career. 'Feed My Soul', produced by their longtime friend and collaborator Joan Osborne, is an album born from this harrowing experience. The songs deal with friendship, loyalty, family, aging, illness, as well as politics and the current state of the world, while still maintaining the patented Holmes Brothers sense of humor. Mostly though, the album is about triumphing over adversity, overcoming obstacles and, ultimately, it is a declaration of the power and faith of a strong and devoted family.

FOLK

The new album from one of ireland’s best songwriters and performers…. Already hailed in Ireland as ‘an acoustic masterpiece’ and ’career defining’ Much has been made of Goss's masterful stagecraft –in the words of country music legend Don Williams, his "amazing ability to reach out to his audience and connect with them in a very special way". On I'll Be Seeing You, arguably for the first time in Goss's career, the lyrical and melodic promise of his excellent early albums, married to the spare, restrained production has crystallised to bridge the gap between his live shows and his recordings. While it may be premature to use the words "career- defining album" this early on in his career, that's very close to what 'I'll Be Seeing' You feels like. Tracks; One Boy’s Treasure / The Reason Why / I’ll Be Seeing You / Into Your Arms / Smile / The One That Got Away / No Good Without You / Line Of Innocence / Shining Like A Sun / Let Me Take You Home Tonight / Over And Over / Make The Morning Shine

NO MASTERS COOPERATIVE

FOLK

Stunning debut album from ex-Unthanks pianist, Belinda O’Hooley and Yorkshire songwriter Heidi Tidow. Haunting piano, soaring strings and warm harmonies combine beautifully. O’Hooley is best known for her work as songwriter and pianist with Rachel Unthank & the Winterset (now The Unthanks). Since leaving the band, the stark, haunting piano arrangements she brought to the Mercury Prize-nominated album 'The Bairns' (EMI) have evolved and migrated to her new duo with Yorkshire songwriter Heidi Tidow. These dapper-suited gentlewomen have an unconventional, wryly observant, melancholic and sometimes uncomfortable take on life; creating their very own brand of contemporary folk song together with a stage manner likened to Jo Brand meets Laurel & Hardy. 'Silent June' was recorded between August and November 2009 at Belinda and Heidi's home in Golcar, Huddersfield, mixed and mastered by Neil Ferguson (Chumbawamba). With their voices and the infamous Yamaha U3 upright piano featured in 'The Bairns' (Rachel Unthank & The Winterset) as the core sound, this album unveils the joining forces of two highly original and compelling songwriters. Tracks; Flight Of The Petrel / All Stand In Line / Shelter Me / Banjololo / Spancil Hill / Too Old To Dream / Hiddden From The Sun / Que Sera / Beautiful Danger / One More Xmas / Cold & Stiff

FOLK

First ever re-issue of early 1970s material. ‘Psych folk’ singer/ songwriter/ guitarist tracks made for the ultra-collectable Village Thing label, marking its 40th anniversary. In 1969, country blues singer/ guitarist Ian A. Anderson took a left swerve into what now gets called psych folk or acid folk – heavy, science-fiction and fantasy influenced songs and acoustic guitar instrumentals – releasing three albums on the cult ‘alternative folk’ label Village Thing. Four years later he returned to roots music, locking away the masters and refusing all pleas to let them out again until now. With 2010 marking the 40th anniversary of Village Thing, a spate of books on the music and the era, and high prices being paid for old vinyl copies, here’s the pick of those VT years, remastered from the original tapes, with three previously unreleased tracks. Arrangements span from solo acoustic guitar to full blown band, recorded at legendary Rockfield studios with a line-up including drummer Pique Withers, who went on to power the original Dire Straits. Tracks; Time Is Ripe / One More Chance / Marie Celeste On Down / Hey Space Pilot / Mr Cornelius / A Sign Of The Times / Policeman's Ball / The Western Wind / Goblets & Elms (a) / The Maker, The Man In The High Castle, The Last Conjuring / Number 61 / Silent Night No.2 / The Survivor / Shirley Temple Meets Hawkwind / Hero / The Worm / Edges / Paint It, Black / Please Readjust Your Time / Baby Let Me Dance With You

JAZZ

Ceremony is a major new project, the fruit of pianist-composer Omar Sosa’s first big-band collaboration with composer-arranger-cellist Jaques Morelenbaum, Hamburg’s 18–piece NDR Bigband (North German Radio / Norddeutscher Rundfunk), and the Omar Sosa Quartet. Recorded in two sessions (2007 and 2008) at NDR’s Hamburg studios, under the direction of Morelenbaum and Sosa, Ceremony features Morelenbaum’s brilliant arrangements of selections from Omar’s Spirit Of The Roots (1999), Bembón (2000), and Afreecanos (2009) CDs—together with two new Sosa offerings, “Llegada Con Elegba” (the introductory track) and “Salida Con Elegba” (the closing piece). Ceremony takes something of the structure of a sacred batá ceremony, invoking a panoply of Yoruba deities, while also delving into the Cuban son, danzón, and cha-cha-cha. Reflecting Sosa’s own spiritual grounding, Ceremony opens in sacramental veneration of Elegba, the divine messenger and guardian spirit, the all-powerful medium and diviner of human fate. “Changó En Esmeraldas” is an extended tribute to the deity of thunder and lightning, fire and moral retribution, and a reflection upon Sosa’s musical sojourn in the Afro-Ecuadorian community of Esmeraldas. “Yemaya En Agua Larga” honors the great mother and goddess of the sea, the moon, creation, and female mystery. In keeping with Yoruba tradition, Ceremony exits with a final ritual salutation to Elegba. Ceremony will have its international debut at NDR in Hamburg on March 18–19, 2010. Tracks: Llegada Con Elegba / Changó En Esmeraldas / Danzón De Tus Ojos / Yemaya En Agua Larga / Luz En El Cielo / Cha Con Marimba / Mi Tradición / Carambabá / Monkurú / Salida Con Elegba

3CD SET INCLUDING RARE MATERIAL – NOW AT MID PRICE Darkthrone have been leaders of the black metal scene for the last 20 years. This 3CD set is a fascinating trip into the earliest years of the band. . Frostland Tapes features all 4 of Darkthrone’s early demos in one place alongside a rare live recording from Denmark in 1990 (one of only a handful of live appearances that Darkthrone has ever made) and the infamous 1991 Goatlord rehearsal session. These songs were intended to feature on the proposed second album, before the band changed direction and the tapes were confined to the vaults. Vocals were subsequently added in the midnineties, but they are presented here as the recording sounded in 1991 – instrumental genius, showing the complexity and intricacy of a band with a great future ahead of them. The set comes in a rigid digibook featuring an interview with the band, chronicling their early days, ambitions and inspirations. Tracks: DISC 1 ‘LAND OF FROST’ DEMO (1988) Land of Frost / Winds of Triton / Forest of Darkness / Odyssey of Freedom / Day of the Dead / ‘A NEW DIMENSION’ DEMO (1988) Intro: Twilight Dimension / Snowfall / 'THULCANDRA’ DEMO (1989) Eon / Thulcandra / Archipelago / Extra track : Soria Moria / DISC 2 ‘CROMLECH’ DEMO (1989) The Watchtower / Accumulation of Generalization / Sempiternal Past/Presence View Sepulchrality / Iconoclasm Sweeps Cappadocia / LIVE FROM DENMARK 1990 Cromlech / Sunrise over Locus Mortis / Soulside Journey / Accumulation of Generalization / Sempiternal Past/Presence View Sepulchrality / Iconoclasm Sweeps Cappadocia / Neptune Towers / DISC 3 GOATLORD – rare instrumental version (1991) Rex / Pure Demoniac Blessing / (The) Grimness of which Shepherds Mourn / Sadomasochistic Rites / As Desertshadows / In his Lovely Kingdom / Black Daimon / Toward(s) the Thornfields / (Birth of Evil) Virgin Sin / Green Cave Float / A Blaze In The Northern Sky / Fenriz drum solo

‘Dark Thrones & Black Flags’ is Darkthrone’s 14th album, a perfect fusion of blackened rock, metal and punk. The album is a continuation of the Darkthrone sound, style and uncompromising attitude witnessed on the acclaimed 2007 album ‘F.O.A.D’. ‘Dark Thrones & Black Flags’ is equal parts Fenriz and Nocturno Culto. The duo share song-writing and vocal duties throughout the release (with some surprising results) and further perfect the art of ‘the riff’. A deceptive mastery of composition is also evident on possibly their strongest release of recent times – an album of stripped down, dirty metal. Tracks: The Winds They Called The Dungeon Shaker / Oath Minus / Hiking Metal Punks / Blacksmith Of The North / Norway In September / Grizzly Trade / Hanging Out In Haiger / Dark Thrones And Black Flags/ Launchpad To Nothingness / Witch Ghetto

This follows the successful 2-for-1 reissues on Raven of 'I Am Woman/Long Hard Climb', 'Love Song for Jeffrey/Free and Easy', 'I Don’t Know How to Love Him/Helen Reddy' and 'No Way to Treat a Lady/Music, Music'. By the late-1970s – with three US #1 hits and a #5 UK hit ‘Angie Baby’ to her credit – Reddy was firmly established as an international superstar. She’s remembered as one of the most popular female singers of the decade and her recorded legacy remains a flawlessly produced collection of easy listening pop and big soulful ballads. Produced by LA legend Kim Fowley, 'Ear Candy' continued her chart domination, yielding her Top 20 hit version of ‘You’re My World’. ‘Long Distance Love’ and ‘The Happy Girls’ featured exuberant dancepop while ‘Aquarius Miracle’ and ‘Midnight Skies’ continued her tradition of soaring, romantic balladry. 'We’ll Sing in the Sunshine', again produced by Fowley, contained songs by Jeff Lynne, Lennon & McCartney, Gale Garnett and Alan O’Day. With superb quality audio, detailed liner notes and color booklet. Tracks; Ear Candy (1977).

AT LAST A REAL BEST OF ALBUM TO BE TREASURED FOREVER. HORSLIPS - THE FATHERS OF CELTIC ROCK RETURNETH At one point in the mid-1970s, Horslips bidded to be Ireland's answer to Steeleye Span. They also had a shot at being the next Jethro Tull, Genesis, or even Yes in its folkier moments. Horslips released many superb albums along the way, becoming Ireland's most acclaimed folk-rock and progressive band. Founded in Dublin during 1970 as a quintet playing a brand of folk-based rock music whose only parallel could be found in the early work of Fairport Convention. Horslips drew on their distinctly Irish roots, and were capable of playing straight folk material when the moment called for it, but weren't afraid to turn up loud and hard, in the best art-rock style, on the right songs. Horslips stunned the 02 in Dublin and the Belfast Arena in December with their 2 ½ hour spectacular performances reminding the public that Horslips are definitely back on the scene once again.

Playing live was important to the bands core and they headlined at The Marquee and went on tour supporting Meatloaf amongst others. The band recorded their second album “Paradise… At A Price” in 1990 but their label Workshop hit financial trouble and the label could not afford the mixing or artwork and subsequently went into liquidation.
