Melody's fourth studio album Currency of Man is brimming with funky bass rhythms, sultry vocals, retro-soul brass arrangements, euphoric gospel singers and esoteric orchestrations. Live, these elements pop on stage as Melody draws in her audience as if they're attending an intimate living room gathering. The LP's socially conscious heartbeat is rooted in Melody's observations of real-life characters on the streets of Los Angeles where Currency of Man was recorded, touching upon many timely issues including racial inequality and homelessness.

New Sounds: WARREN HAYNES "Spots Of Time"

Artist: WARREN HAYNES
Track: "Spots Of Time"
Solo Americana Album 'Ashes & Dust' Out July 24th

Grammy Award-winning vocalist-songwriter and revered guitarist Warren Haynes' new studio album, Ashes & Dust featuring Railroad Earth, will be released Friday, July 24th via Concord Records.

Listen to lead single off the album, "Spots of Time" on Soundcloud

"This is a project unlike any other in Warren's prolific, decades-long career with Allman Brothers, Gov't Mule and the Grateful Dead. Ashes & Dust sees Warren recording in the Americana space for the first time ever and features gorgeous acoustic arrangements, folk-based songwriting and his most personal songs to date - some that he has been carrying around for 20 or 30 years but never recorded until now. Warren also plays more acoustic and slide guitar on this album than he has played in a long time. The LP features collaborations with Grace Potter, Shawn Colvin, Mickey Raphael, Oteil Burbridge, and Marc Quinones."

New Video: Bang Gang "My Special One"
New Album: "The Wolves Are Whispering" available now.

"It's been over seven years since Iceland's Bang Gang - a.k.a. Bardi Johannsson - released his last record, and today the long-awaited new album The Wolves Are Whispering is out. An expansive, cinematic and hugely personal collection of songs that represent some of Johannsson's finest work to date, The Wolves Are Whispering features guest vocals by Helen Marnie (Ladytron), Keren Ann (Lady & Bird), Jofridur Akadottir (Samaris, Pascal Pinon) and Bloodgroup.

Though it's been nearly a decade since the last Bang Gang album, Ghosts From The Past, Bardi Johannsson has kept busy. His recent collaborations include the electro-pop duo Starwalker with Jean-Benoît Dunckel of Air and Lady and Bird with French songstress Keren Ann. Johannsson has also scored numerous films and documentaries including David Guy Levy's Would You Rather (with Daniel Hunt), and the French success De Toutes Nos Forces, directed by Nils Tavernier."
