Boy King – Wild Beasts

Boy King is the upcoming fifth studio album from indie-rock group Wild Beasts and have released the single “Get My Bang“. Frontman Hayden Thorpe had the following to say of the album,

It became apparent that that guitar almost became the character within the songs, that phallic character, the all-conquering male. I’m letting my inner Byron fully out, I thought I’d tucked him away, but he came screaming back like the Incredible Hulk. … I think Boy King is an apocalyptic record. It’s about swimming in the abyss. When you think about sex, you’ve got to think about death, they’re one and the same.

Lovers – Nels Cline

Wilco guitarist Nels Cline has announced the release for his new solo project Lovers. In a press release Cline stated:

I have been dreaming about, planning, and re-working my rather obsessive idea of this record for well over twenty-five years, and it was always going to be called Lovers. It is meant to be as personal in its sound and in its song selection as it is universal in its endeavor to assay or map the parameters of “mood” as it once pertained, and currently pertains, to the peculiar and powerful connection between sound/song and intimacy/romance. In this, I hope Lovers offers something of an update of the “mood music” idea and ideal, while celebrating and challenging our iconic notion of romance.

Into The Night – Jeremy & The Harlequins

Into The Night is the upcoming sophomore album from Jeremy & The Harlequins. The groups sound is heavily influenced from the rock music of the 50’s and 60’s, and have released title-track “Into The Night“. Listen to HERE. The bio on the group’s website reads:

In the indie world, everything seems like it’s long songs with no choruses and it doesn’t feel to me like something I’ll be singing along with in 20 years and going back to, and the pop world seems to have lost its human element. Music should make you feel something, and I don’t get that from much music nowadays, so we wanted to strip things down again and get back to the essence of rock’n’roll and pop music.

Spend The Night With – Cheena

The New York based rock group Cheena have announced their debut release Spend the Night Withand have shared a glimpse of the album with their single “Car“. The group’s sound likens itself to Lou Reed, “the heavy handed playing of the Dolls, and that particular manner of NY glam you can hear in Kiss.” “Spend The Night With… is a soundtrack to nights where revelry and lust are never isolated from poor decisions and vanity, where the grave sincerity of a bathroom confession explodes into cruelty and hysteria, nights on busy streets or crowded subway cars coloured with elegant ambition and constrained by the practicality of street smarts. Don’t sleep. Don’t retreat. Stay a while. Let’s spend the night together.”

Starved Nights of Saturday Stars – Trevor Sensor

Starved Nights of Saturday Staris the debut album from indie-rocker Trevor Sensor. “The Illinois-born 22-year-old singer/songwriter’s distinctive burr of a voice sounds aged decades beyond his years, and Starved Nights of Saturday Stars follows suit. With timeless-sounding melodies and a sense of songwriting that exudes maturity while still feeling fresh, Sensor composes songs that sound deeply felt and from a place of truth and honesty. “If I’m trying to do anything, it’s to be sincere,” he says about his songwriting approach.”A lot of singer/songwriters today are oriented in irony. It’s cooler to be lackadaisical rather than to try to be compelling.” Listen to his single “When Tammy Spoke to MarthaHERE, and pre-order your copy below.
