Special edition of Boho Dancer's 'Gemini' to be released

Album release: Gemini - Special Edition by Boho Dancer
Release date: May 2014
Label: Slow Shark Records
Listen on: official Boho Dancer site 

‘Boho Dancer’s music is so sweet yet so sad… it’s tempered by a childlike fragility that makes the songs sound like whimsical folk for fairy tales with a sinister undertow.’ – The Guardian

‘Bewitching Acid Folk with a deeply personal edge, their intertwining harmonies, their intricate song structures are matched to an unusual directness.’ – Clash

‘Banjos chatter and Ida Wenøe’s juvenile coo trembles atop toe-tap rhythms before a moody acid-folk blow-out at the close. Gorgeous boy/girl harmonies evoke clear comparisons to Band Of Skulls’ acoustic ballads, but there’s something darker here: something more fanciful and affecting.’ – The Line Of Best Fit

Danish trio Boho Dancer are to announce the release of a special extended version of their acclaimed debut album ‘Gemini’, featuring the addition of three brand new bonus tracks. The offering is scheduled for UK release in May 2014

The addition of three bonus tracks for UK audiences, ‘Me & Your God’, ‘Pistols’ and ‘Good Vibrations’, constitutes a significant furthering of the themes present throughout ‘Gemini’ and considerably adds to the natural progression and organic culmination of the album.

Boho Dancer’s enchanting folk-pop, with its quirkily appealing vocals and intricate melodies, has gained them a considerable following in their native Denmark and is rapidly winning them fans across the rest of the world. The music is highly emotional yet accessible, and there are dark, almost gothic overtones, “a melancholic Nordic vibe”, as Ida puts it. Meanwhile, the singing is equally cute and cutting and the lyrics express a worldview that is childlike yet weary. Like fairytales for adults. Influenced by the classic songwriting of Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen and Nick Drake and by more contemporary exponents of folk-inflected pop such as Local Natives, Fleet Foxes and First Aid Kit, Boho Dancer also bring a certain indefinable Nordic quality to bear on their songwriting.

The album is a haunting delight, with songs about good friends and bad weather, love in general and the local landscape, that, even at their most delicate, have the power to haunt long after they’ve finished.

New single from Rupert Stroud

Single release: Morning Light by Rupert Stroud
Release date: 31 March 2014
Listen on: official Rupert Stroud website 

Displaying strong-hearted, beat driven acoustic rock, inspired tracks. Rupert Stroud possesses fantastic vocal ability. Having been compared to Richard Ashcroft, Jim Morrison and Nick Cave with a hint of Elbow, Stroud has already attracted significant attention from music media. New single ‘Morning Light’ is the first offering from an upcoming brand new album.

Rupert’s working with eminent British producer Will Jackson (The Kaiser Chiefs, Embrace, The Cribs). It was his work with Will that produced Rupert’s second album ‘Chasing The Night’. This was a breakthrough project for Rupert and saw him dubbed as one of Yorkshire’s hottest young artists.

Reaction

  • “Chasing The Night 4/5” - Acoustic Magazine 
  • “Twisted Games is an amazing new tune from Rupert Stroud” - NME 
  • “His songs have that strum along/ sing along quality that in itself is a gift 4/5” - Guitar Techniques

The plaudits kept coming, and Rupert was soon performing with his band on the festival circuit, sharing the stage with artist such as Gabrielle Aplin, Ocean Colour Scene, Chris Helme (Seahorses) Benjamin Francis Leftwich, Marcus Foster, ASH , The Dunwells, Mark Morris (Bluetones) and Scars on 45 to name a few.

Rupert’s career has gone from strength to strength and his most recent release “Never Back Down” has caught the ears of national radio, receiving radio play and plaudits from the likes of BBC Radio 2’s Dermot O’Leary, Whispering Bob Harris, BBC 6 Music’s Tom Robinson and Hattie Pearson at XFM. This led to Rupert and the band being invited by BBC Radio London for a live session and interview. Rupert also received his first US radio airplay on KX 93.5FM Laguna Beach California. His music video for ‘Never Back Down’ won “People’s Choice Award 2013” at The 27th Leeds International Film Festival, beating 31 other artist entries and gaining 25% of the votes cast.

As a “Champion Spokesperson” for Alzheimer’s Research UK, a cause close to his heart, Rupert has raised over £6000 to date through various campaigns and events including his charity single ‘Always’. The single was written in memory of his grandmother who suffered with Alzheimer’s. As a media spokesperson for the charity, Rupert was recently interviewed by The Guardian newspaper talking about the tragedy of the illness and why he became involved. Rupert was also interviewed on Al Jazeera International News programme “Inside Story”, where the video for his charity single ‘Always’ was broadcast.

Rupert is back in the studio with Will Jackson working on his third album due for release in 2014. You can hear some of the new unreleased material here.

Beverley Martyn's 'The Phoenix and the Turtle' out 22 April

Beverley Martyn's The Phoenix and the Turtle

Album release: The Phoenix and the Turtle by Beverley Martyn
Release date: April 22nd 2014
Label: released by Les Cousins (distributed by Proper)
Listen on: official Beverly Martyn website 

Beverley Martyn started her musical career at just 16 with the jug band The Levee Breakers and recorded her first single Babe I’m Leaving You in 1965. In 1966 she was chosen to launch Deram Records and released a single, Happy New Year written by Randy Newman. She contributed to the Simon & Garfunkel album Bookends, toured America with the duo and later appeared at the Monterey Pop Festival on 16 June 1967.

In 1969 she met John Martyn, whom she later married. As a duo they issued two albums, Stormbringer! and The Road to Ruin. Although she was spending more time with her children, Beverley continued to contribute to John’s solo projects until the breakdown of their marriage.

At various times, Martyn has worked with Levon Helm, Jimmy Page, Dave Pegg, Richard Thompson, John Renbourn, Ralph McTell, Davy Graham, and Sandy Denny. She appeared in the photograph on the album sleeve of Bert Jansch’s 1965 album It Don’t Bother Me; where she can be seen lounging in the background. In December 2013, Beverley appeared at the Royal Festival Hall as part of a celebration of Bert Jansch, alongside friends and contemporaries such as Donovan, Martin Carthy, Pentangle and Robert Plant. Her powerhouse performance of When The Levee Breaks was described by Mojo as ‘sounding almost Janis Joplin-esque’. A film of the event is due to be shown by the BBC in the spring.

In 2004, Fat Boy Slim sampled Beverley Martyn’s song Primrose Hill for the track North West Three which is on his album Palookaville. Beverley still performs the song live along with Auntie Aviator, also from The Road The Ruin.

April 2014 will see the release of her new album entitled The Phoenix and the Turtle. Described by Beverley as a very personal album, it features songs written throughout her entire career, from her very first song, Sweet Joy, to the previously unrecorded Nick Drake & Beverley Martyn song Reckless Jane which was started in 1974 when Drake lived nearby Beverley in Hampstead. “We started writing the song as a bit of a joke,” she says, “I couldn’t look at it for a long time after he died, but then finally I decided to finish it.”

When The Levee Breaks and Going To Germany are songs Beverley used to sing with The Levee Breakers. Another song, Women And Malt Whiskey is, in part, about John Martyn and other friends from the scene back then.

The Phoenix and the Turtle is Beverley’s first album in fourteen years and was recorded in Wales with guitarist and producer Mark Pavey; it also features contributions from bass player Matt Malley, ex-Counting Crows and drummer Victor Bisetti, ex-Los Lobos which were recorded “by the magic of computer” in California. The album “still has that in-a-room feel,” said Beverley recently, “it sounds like an old style analogue record. It’s very me, very transatlantic.”

Beverley Martyn and her full band will be playing Bush Hall, London, April 29th, 2014.
