Through the Fake and the Real … EDITORS reveal “No Harm”

Screen-Shot-2015-05-11-at-11

Our beloved EDITORS unveil the highly anticipated video for their new song “ No Harm ” An amazing , strobe-filled clip of austere beauty that is masterfully combined with their music. The band released the track in a secret compilation as a free download last month. Filmed in a grim , grey footage the clip is fraught with surreal notes backing up the whole concept. This is their first collaboration with their friend Rahi Rezvani who seems to share the same kind of love for a certain aesthetic which their music mirrors. The result is a work of art and a sign that the upcoming release is something we should look forward to.

The electro synth beats blend into a landscape of haunting low vocals painted against a brooding , moody melody . A mesmerizing song , slowly evolving , built on warm synth line, Editors’ new release is not something you could not notice for all the right reasons. This time, Tom Smith’s deep voice is accompanied by a minimalistic and spacey beat, as he proclaims himself a “go-getter”. The track is a promising sign of things to come, with the band drawing on synth-y soundscapes to paint a brooding, ominous and cinematic picture that is admittedly addictive and totally captivating .

It seems like only yesterday when the Birmingham stars released 2013’s massive “The Weight Of Your Love” but the band are already preparing the release of their fifth album, having finished mixing it back in March. We eagerly await 🙂 ❤

LYRICS  / No Harm
I’ll boil easier than you,
Crush my bones into glue
I’m a go-getter
The system’s in red
The room is inbred
I’m a go-getter

Don’t hold no harm
Don’t hold no harm

My children despise my wonderful lies
I’m a go-getter
I see through your walls
And your space down your halls
I’m a go-getter

Don’t hold no harm
Don’t hold no harm

The fever I feel, the fake and the real
I’m a go-getter
My world just expands
Things just breaking my hands
I’m a go-getter

Don’t hold no harm
Don’t hold no harm
Don’t hold no harm
Don’t hold no harm

Florence + The Machine Metal Tribute Album released

flo1

So you may be wandering …How does Florence + the Machine mixes with metal? Well, judging by Periphery’s cover of “Only If For A Night” in the video below, it can mix pretty well. It appears that Sumerian Records has gathered a bunch of bands on the label together to cover Florence + the Machine. The album has been dubbed “Sumerian Ceremonials” Florence + The Sphinx and is due out on May 15th. It mainly consists of songs from Florence + The Machine’s 2011 album, Ceremonials. Of course, one exception has been made — Stick To Your Guns have recorded “Dog Days Are Over,” because you can’t really release a Florence + The Machine tribute album and not include the band’s big breakthrough hit.

 
Speaking about the record, Sumerian’s co-founder Ash Avildsen commented:

“To me, ‘Ceremonials’ by Florence + the Machine is one of the most timeless records to come out in years. The distinctive vocals and melodies, the orchestration and instrumentation, the production, the mood and the lyrics have made me enamored with the album. It is also one of the heaviest records in years to me … not in the sense of metal and aggressive vocals/guitars/drums, but in how the songs make you feel.”

FLORENCE :
Louder than Sirens
Louder than Bells
Sweeter than Heaven
Hotter than Hell

TANGO WITH LIONS : Let your ears dance to their tango and discover their soundscape

kat2

In times of general recession and uncertainty it is so wonderful and hopeful to discover bands and musicians that truly deserve to be explored and renew your faith in music. The Athens , Greece-based band “Tango with Lions” fall into this category and with their second slow , powerful and groovy album , they are bound to steal your heart and impress you.
Tango with Lions were officially formed in 2007 by Katerina Papachristou , a young musician who as bassist and singer has collaborated with many English speaking bands of the Greek indie/alternative scene. Since then, they have grown to be a band with a stable line-up and rather distinctive , moody , deeply haunting music vibes.
Their debut album, “Verba Time” was released in 2010 and has received enthusiastic reviews while the song “In A Bar” has broken a record of views on YouTube. Their highly anticipated second album, “A Long Walk” was out in spring 2013 and is nothing less than impressive.
Digging into dark thoughts , floating in a sea of love and memories and getting lost in dreamy landscapes , Tango With Lions transport you into their world with the power of their music and Kat’s emotional , sultry vocals. The carefully executed arrangements and instrumentation find the way to wrap around the hauntingly beautiful voice of their lead singer and you become part of the stories their songs have to tell. There’s a pensive, rather mellow and sometimes relaxed vibe to their music with occasional bursts that resemble the course of your emotions.
If you are looking for an album worth listening to and long for an interesting journey to new, uncharted waters , discover them and let your ears dance to their tango. Chances are , you will really enjoy their breathtaking soundscape 🙂

Coldplay announces new album “ Ghost Stories ”

article-2572162-1C00F2CA00000578-516_634x624

It’s been quite a while since Coldplay’s last album “ Mylo Xyloto ” but it looks like they are back. After a lengthy world tour , the British group announced that its sixth album will be a nine-track record called “ Ghost Stories ” which is about to be released on May 19th and will be proceeded by their single “ Magic ”.

Their sound seems to have changed and they follow more experimental paths , showing us a rather different side from what we have been used to. Is it a bold new direction for the favorite band ? We will find out soon ! The cover artwork of the album features a pair of angel’s wings with sketched figures within which can be seen in detail with the help of a magnifying glass. 

One of the new tracks called “ Midnight ” was released on You Tube a few days ago. The video was directed by Mary Wigmore and shows the band walking through a dark woodland.  In order to whet their fans’ appetite , Coldplay have also revealed a full track listing of the upcoming album.

30 Seconds to Mars’ Jared Leto Wins Best Supporting Actor

J3

The 30 Seconds to Mars frontman and actor Jared Leto wins Best Supporting  Actor Oscar for his role in  Dallas Buyers Club  where he portrayed Rayon, a transgender woman who’s HIV-positive.

Prior to filming, Leto had taken a several years-long  pause from acting to focus on his band, “30 Seconds to Mars”. Having won a vast majority of awards this season ( including Golden Globe, SAG, Critics’ Choice and Independent Spirit awards )  it was clear that he was the heavy favorite for the Oscar. His acceptance speech was  simple , sincere , heartwarming , emotional and one of the best of the night.

Last year’s best supporting actress winner, Anne Hathaway, presented the award at Sunday’s ceremony and here’s what Jared had to say :

“ Incredible. Ellen, I love you. To my fellow nominees, I’m so proud to share this journey with you. I’m in awe and have so much respect for you all. To the Academy, thank you.

|In 1971, in Bossier City Louisiana, there was a teenage girl who was pregnant with her second child. She was a high school dropout and a single mom, but somehow she managed to make a better life for herself and her children. She encouraged here kids to be creative and work hard and do something special. That girl was my mother and she’s here tonight. I just want to say ‘I love you mom, thank you for teaching me to dream.’

To my brother Shannon, the best big brother in the world: Thank you so much for sharing this insane adventure that is 30 Seconds to Mars and for being my best friend.

To all the dreamers out there around the world watching this tonight in places like Ukraine and Venezuela, I want to to say we are here, and as you struggle to make your dreams happen and live the impossible, we are thinking of you tonight.

This is for the 36 million people who have lost the battle to AIDS. And to those of you who have ever felt injustice because of who you are and who you love, I stand here in front of the world with you and for you.

Thank you so much, and good night.”

HANDSOME SAVIOR

 

What will it take to get you back on your feet

You lost your will and now you’re losing your sleep

My good intentions are all wasted on you

What good would trying do you ?

Trying is all you can do…

I do not think that this is anyone’s fault

It’s not my business to make sense of it all

I came here looking for a life & you came here too

What good would trying do you ?

Trying is all you can do…

 

You sat there waiting all night but nobody came

No handsome savior coming in from the rain

No steady hand to straighten everything out

He’s just the same as me , he’s never around

 

I do not claim that I am always so strong

You’ve seen me falter and you’ve seen me undone

Don’t add your spite to the load we’re dragging uphill

Rough times won’t rock our boat

but  our meanness surely will

 

You sat there waiting all night but nobody came

No handsome savior coming in from the rain

No steady hand to straighten everything out

He’s just the same as me , he’s never around

 

 

love
