We've already had our first couple of tastes from PJ Harvey's soon to be released album Let England Shake, set for release on February 15. And now news has come that she is to release "The Words That Maketh Murder" from Let England Shake on January 17th! Who knows what this single will bring as our impressions from he previous two tasters, "Written On The Forehead" and "The Last Living Rose" are a little mixed in style.
This morning Zane Lowe had Liam Gallagher on his breakfast show for his ever popular "Vs" segment in which he battles against an oponent track for track. I always forget that the Gallagher brothers are pretty cool when it comes to interviews and Liam came across as a genuine guy loving the music he is now making with Beady Eye. Yesterday Beady Eye posted up another new track on their Youtube page for track, "The Roller" We've already had a taste of three other tracks from the guys and I'm more than a little impressed with what they are giving us.
The video for "The Roller" was recorded over the ridiculously cold December we had here in the UK on a cold Cabridgeshire day. It's set to feature a 'Motorcycle Wall Of Death' which was one of only two in the country! Sounds like it could be a cool video. Set to premiere here in the UK on Channel 4 on Monday (10th of Jan) at Midnight. We'll have it for you shortly after.
Beady Eye's debut Different Gear, Still Speeding which is released on 28th February 2011 on Beady Eye Records. Thanks to our friends over at CoS for giving us a heads up on this track.
When I heard this Streets track on Zane the other day I immediately wanted to hear it again! Now it's finally been uplaoded and ripped you can check it out for yoruself below. The Mike Skinner track is taken from Computers and Blues which has been penned for a February 18th release. The single will see its official release on April 18th so start getting excited for the last ever Streets LP. I know the SKoA team are eagerly awaiting getting our hands on it.
Zane Lowe has been doing the morning show all week over here in the UK and having him blasting out some good tunes in the AM has definately perked me up without the usual Coffee, so if you fancy checking out some of the shows you can listen over here. Thanks to ItsJustMeAndTheMusic for uploading this and Hypetrak for the heads up!
Update: Stream below with Zane removed!
We haven't had much if any new material from Jamie Hince and Alison Moshart since 2008's album Midnight Boom. I'm not complaining too much mind, we did have the beutiful musings of The Dead Weather in their absence. That kept my Moshart fix just about managable but yesterday (January 6th) we got news from Alison that the 4th album from The Kills was finished! Posting the above picture on their Facebook Page, she stated the following:
"Well hello friends. Happy new year to all of you! I write to you from Michigan on a snowy-ish evening. With Christmas and New Years festivities seemingly over, a flight early in the morning beckons and I have good news! The 4th Kills album is FINISHED! RECORDED+MIXED+MASTERED and all that jazz. So here’s to a new year and a new record!!! More announcements will be made very very soon xxx A"
More news on the release date and all that jazz when we have it! Keep your eyes peeled and keep checking back.
Yesterday CoS premiered a brand new track from Dallas Green, the guy behind City and Colour and the non screamer in Alexisonfire, and Canadian Hip Hop artist Shad. Titled "Live Forever", it's a pretty deep track that see's Dallas' vox being used nicely in the Chorus against the back drop of Shad's rapping verses. Put together the result is very nice and I must say I like it. This is the first track from the pair's “Two Songs” 12-inch vinyl which will benefit Skate4Cancer. Head on over to Consequence of Sound to download the track and listen to it for yourself.
