Electronic, Indie, Shoegaze

Edinburgh based trio Stillhound recently announced the release of ‘Bury Everything’ alongside album opener ‘Spring Conscious,’ a vast and soaring pop track with Foals-esque guitar intricacies and towering chorus. Here ‘Time Enough For Love’ and it’s gossamer electronics provide a fitting backdrop for singer Fergus Cook’s hushed yet urgent vocals. Consisting of Fergus, Laurie Corlett-Donald and Dave Lloyd, the band take inspiration from art, geography and the far flung soundscapes of their homeland, creating an avant-pop record with glacial electronics and packed with unashamed synth pop moments. Laced with twinkling piano chords and gentle guitar riffs, ‘Bury Everything’ is set for release on 23rd September via Lost Oscillation Records. Additional production and mixing was undertaken by Gareth Jones (Depeche Mode, Interpol, Grizzly Bear) and mastering was undertaken by Alex Wharton at Abbey Road.

Having come to the U.S. from his native Nigeria to study medicine, percussionist Babatunde Olatunji eventually became one of the first African music stars in the States. He also soon counted jazz heavyweights like John Coltrane ("Tunji") and Dizzy Gillespie among his admirers (Gillespie had, a decade earlier, also courted many Cuban music stars via his trailblazing Latin jazz recordings). And, in spite of it being viewed by some as a symbol of African chic, Drums of Passion is still a substantial record thanks to Olatunji's complex and raw drumming.

Bear Family Records came into being in the late summer of 1975. We want to celebrate the company's 35th anniversary with a very special release. A specially priced CD/book edition has been produced just for this event. Our friends in the music industry, musicians and songwriters, have written and recorded a collection of 'Bear' songs especially for our anniversary. These original recordings - 68 in all - are available exclusively on this LP-sized Bear Family boxed set. Especially interesting are the songs that deal not just with any old bear, but with our own Bear Family label - Jim Diamond: Bear Family; Deke Dickerson: Bear Family Talking Blues; Roland Heinrich: Sixteen Discs, and Kim Lenz: What I Crave.

After a long and productive hibernation, Bear's Den is days away from releasing Red Earth and Pouring Rain, the first album since the amicable departure of Joey Haynes. Part of the album's inspiration comes from the likes of a painting from Edward Hopper, the novels of Raymond Carver, and film director, Robert Altman's Short Cuts…

Perhaps the most difficult thing in writing about a box set like this is how to convey in words – few or many – the magic, wonder, and intimidating musicianship that is contained on these recordings. Over four CDs, the seeds, roots, branches, and trees of a musical partnership were formed and lived out on the public stage, and remain all but unknown to those who were not country music fans during the era. While one Speedy West & Jimmy Bryant compilation has appeared on Razor & Tie, as a single disc it only begins to offer the legend of this pair of musical innovators.

Ferlin Husky shares billing on his volume of Bear Family's ongoing rockabilly and country-boogie series, Gonna Shake This Shack Tonight, with Simon Crum and Terry Preston – two aliases he adopted in the thick of and at the start of his career, respectively. Unlike Collectors' Choice Music's 2002 collection Country Music Is Here to Stay, the focus of this 2016 set is not on the novelties of Simon Crum. Instead, this rounds up 32 sides Husky recorded in any incarnation, with the uniting factor being its swing.

Merle Haggard, RIP. In Memoriam. Merle Haggard, an icon of American music, died at his home in California on Wednesday, April 6, 2016. It was the singer, songwriter, and musician’s 79th birthday. In 2008 he battled lung cancer, and was hospitalized in December 2015 with double pneumonia. Haggard returned to the stage soon after, but was sidelined again in February due to continuing health concerns. “A week ago Dad told us he was gonna pass on his birthday,” Merle’s son and lead guitarist, Ben, revealed the day his father died, “and he wasn’t wrong.”

The grotesque cover illustration is an abomination, but the contents are right in the growling grizzly bear style that we've come to expect. Only four Seals-penned originals, but the R&B-laced "Life Is Hard" and "I'm Gonna Take It All Back" are quality efforts. So is his heartfelt tribute to Hound Dog Taylor, "Sadie".
