New Video: Bang Gang "My Special One"

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."

New Music: Stone Jack Jones "Circumstance"

Nashville's "Stone Jack Jones" second album "Love & Torture" (out March 17th on Western Vinyl). It's truly a sonic dialog, at times experimental, dark folk tale that tells the tales of his ironic and incredible life events.

Stone Jack Jones joined forces with producer Roger Moutenot (Yo La Tengo, Sleater Kinney, etc), alongside members of Lambchop and Patty Griffin who guest on vocals.

Here's a down-home tune from the fabulous Bloodshot Records artist Bobby Bare Jr. I do not fish, but I now I feel the need to fish and drink whiskey--pretty unique sounds from this artist. So, enjoy and see him when he comes through your town.

New music from Bobby Bare Jr. New music video: "NORTH OF ALABAMA BY MORNIN'" from the 2014 Bloodshot Records Album UNDEFEATED.

"Hot on the heels of his tour with Todd Snider and his performance at the Kings of Leon Nashville Food & Wine Festival, as well as a huge 2014 including critical acclaim for Undefeated and multiple tours with Guided By Voices, Bobby Bare Jr. has unveiled his new music video for "North of Alabama By Mornin'."

The video is directed by Don't Follow Me I'm Lost (A Documentary About Bobby Bare Jr) director William Miller and chronicles BBJ and his band (featuring Nashville power players Doni Schroader and Matt Roland) on their North American tour. The band is at their energetic and sonic height on this tune with its murky, palm-muted electric guitar and striding, crunchy organ backbeat; a combination that is undeniably kinetic à la Humble Pie’s ‘70s boogie grooves and sinister and sexy, like a Southern doppelganger to Greg Dulli/The Twilight Singers."
