Sun Kil Moon (aka Mark Kozelek) has very quietly announced his sophomore collaboration album with Shoegaze pioneer Jesu. It will follow their first full-length collaboration "Jesu / Sun Kil Moon", which was released in 2016. This is a very productive period for the band as they will release this new collaboration album two months after their eighth full length album "Common As Light and Love Are Red Valleys of Blood" which will be released this February. An anti-Michael Jackson song called "He's Bad" was released as the album's first single. "Needles Disney" was the second single released. "The Greatest Coversation Ever In The History Of The Universe” is the third single and it was included as apart of the 30 Days 30 Songs project promoting artists for a Trump Free America. This collaboration album was recorded both in the UK and in the US through November 2017. The album will be released on May 5th via Caldo Verde Records.
One of the greatest albums ever from organist Charles Earland – a double-length set that's filled with spiritual, soaring grooves! The style here is a perfect blend of the rougher soul jazz of Earland's roots with some of the spacier styles of his later recordings – served up in a sound that's majestic and powerful, almost with an indie soul jazz sort of vibe overall! There's an immediate urgency to most numbers that's totally undeniable – a lesson learned from the electric experiments of Herbie Hancock and Miles Davis, but fused down into a core essence – then let loose on a soaring journey to the heavens.
IMMORTAL takes a fresh, creative approach in redesigning and reimagining more than 40 of Michael Jackson's greatest original recordings into a compilation that allows listeners to experience his music in an entirely new way. The album is the musical tapestry for Cirque du Soleil's Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour. The project was led by esteemed musical designer, Kevin Antunes (Justin Timberlake, Rihanna, Madonna). After spending a year in the studio working with Michael's original multi-track master recordings, Kevin created IMMORTAL which offers listeners a new soundscape to Michael's artistry while preserving the power and familiarity of his unparalleled voice and his legendary tracks.
