2011-03-08

 
Currently at work on their soon-to-be-completed 7th album, Spiritualized have signed to Fat Possum Records for North America.  The new album will be released in the Fall.  The band have also announced plans for a show at London's famed Royal Albert Hall on October 11th, 2011.  Tickets go on sale March 11th at 9am.

While it's been three years since the release of acclaimed album "Songs In A&E," Spiritualized have been busy in the interim. July last year saw them stage a spectacular orchestral performance of their 1997 masterpiece "Ladies And Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space" at Manhattan's Radio City Music Hall. Led by enigmatic frontman Jason Spaceman, Spiritualized are widely regarded as one of the most significant British rock bands of the past 20 years.

The Felice Brothers "Celebration, Floridia"

2011-03-01

 
The Felice Brothers new and fourth LP "Celebration, Florida", in stores May 10, is an exhilarating amalgamation of frightening horn sections, unexpected 808s, ambient synth lines, schoolyard taunts, booming, primitive drum beats, heavy bass lines, piano, violin, accordion, ringing guitars, rave beats, and sinister acid jazz that captivates and mystifies. Recorded in the library and theater of Beacon, NY’s old high school, the band explores a multitude of sounds and instrumentation throughout the expansive album. It’s inspired, imaginative, heady, menacing, passionate, and rollicking. Most importantly, it’s as steadfastly authentic as ever, expanding upon the dark, woozy undercurrent of ramshackle barroom blues, vaudevillian atmospherics, and surreal storytelling of their previous albums.

Celebration, Florida track listing:
 
Fire at the Pageant
Container Ship
Honda Civic
Oliver Stone
Ponzi
Back in the Dancehalls
Dallas
Cus's Catskill Gym
Refrain
Best I Ever Had
River Jordan
