TATYANA has also detailed her debut EP – also Shadow On The Wall – for release on July 17. Preorder/presave HERE. “Shadow On The Wall’ is a digital love letter.

Muzz, the new project of Paul Banks (Interpol), Josh Kaufman (Bonny Light Horseman), and Matt Barrick (The Walkmen), will release their self-titled, debut album next Friday on June 5th via Matador. Watch the video for ‘Knuckleduster’. Brimming with wall-to-wall guitars, reverberating pianos and a thunderous performance from Barrick, ‘Knuckleduster’ is Muzz at their most immersive and grandiose. Shot below the American Treasure Tour Museum, the stark video draws attention to the song’s spacious sonics and exhilarating musicianship.
Banks says: “While we were shooting the video for ‘Red Western Sky’ at the American Treasure Tour facility, we discovered this great space underneath the museum. Unplanned, we quickly set up and started filming again – capturing the video for ‘Knuckleduster’ on the same day.”
Brothers D’addario are back. The Lemon Twigs reveal the second single from their forthcoming third album, Songs For The General Public, entitled ‘Moon.’ The thrilling sax-driven track revels in hints of Bruce Springsteen and even fellow Long Islander Billy Joel. The D’Addario brothers wrote, recorded and produced the forthcoming album entirely on tape at their Long Island home studio, Sonora Studios in Los Angeles, and Electric Lady in New York City. Songs For The General Public is out August 21 on 4AD.
Leif Vollebekk shares Rest, two new songs available now across all streaming services. In a time of social distancing, life has brought about a forced pause from normal life. It’s encouraged some of us, including Leif himself, to reflect more, connect more, rest more. This release compliments that quiet introspection. ‘Intro’ is a never before released song which was originally intended as the first piece on the album. The melody and lyrics, which echoes the song ‘Vancouver Time’, came to Leif when he was in a jetlag state, about a month before writing what would be known as the official opening track.
The second song is an acoustic version of the ending opus ‘Rest’. This version was recorded in Castlemaine, Australia in a spur of the moment with sound engineer Jono Steer. After wowing audiences with a sold out co-headline Australian tour with Ainslie Wills, ‘Rest (Acoustic)‘ was recorded exactly a week before the world closed down its borders.
