A Welcome Short Sharp Scratch from Jak Chantler

 

If you can expect quality new music from anyone today, Jak Chantler is certainly someone you can trust. Cutting his teeth in the alt-grunge band ‘Kingskin’ and tipped as Kerrang’s “best new unsigned band”, Chantler is changing his musical direction and the change is more than welcome.

His new single ‘Shell Suit’, crafted by him and producer George Shilling is a joyous dance through a world of sunlight and soul that calls on the old school funk vibes of Chic and Chaka Khan. The groove and feel of the song is undeniable and the lyrics talk of love and life in a nuanced and poetic manner that will tug at the heartstrings of any human being that knows what it is to dive head first into love.

As the ultimate combination of songwriter/producer, Jak is perceptively aware of the current trends in this contemporary age of music where there is so much choice. The new project seemingly has no limits as he aims to meet the demands of the savvy modern day listener.

ImSoMaleek LP Review

ImSoMaleek a Wyclef Jean protegé from Brooklyn, will be releasing his debut album, Insomniak, later next month. No stranger to the world of music, ImSoMaleek was lead singer in a band with his two older brothers 3on3 and also appeared in the Broadway Musical Lion King as well as venturing into other music endeavours.

                IMG_0272

With the guiding hand of Wyclef Jean and drawing from influences such as Usher, Frank Ocean and Justin Timberlake, ImSoMaleek brings out a solid debut album, blending R&B, soul, while adding touches of pop, and drawing on his roots in classical training.

Tipped to become a familiar name in the R&B world, as well as the world of popular music, this debut album is overall a fine achievement. The album has a smooth flowing contemporary sound with stand out tracks including, Sometimes ft. Oswin Benjamin, and Raindrops, a ballad with poignant lyrics and which best displays his vocal talents. Overall, a compelling debut from someone who we will probably see a lot more of in the future.

Slumberjack LP Review

Out of the U.S state of Florida come Slumberjack, a rock duo (Andrew Kelly and Dave Hanson), whose blend of raw and rowdy rock music with lingering somber melodies return with their debut LP, ‘Oddly Calm,’ after their debut EP, ‘Black Lodge,’ which was well received, and introduced their sound to a growing number of fans.

While being influenced by other rock outfits such as Pile and Colour Revolt they have maintained their distinct sound of powerful whisky drenched vocals, driving beats, lush melodies, and some nifty guitar work thrown in too – it is hard to believe that there is only two of them. There are some strong tracks on the LP. Ones that stand out are ‘Progression of a Chia Pet,’ which grows on you with each listen, and ‘People Eat Everything,’ with its charming lyrics and rich melody. For rock music fans, this is a must listen to, definitely not to be missed.

They’ve just come off of an eastern U.S tour and are about to hit the roads again with their ‘Oddly Calm’ tour. While the new LP is being distributed worldwide through Sony Records / The Orchard right now.

CHANNEL D RELEASES NEW ALBUM ‘UNRAVELLING’ THIS JULY

A dark album holding a mirror up to our dark times, ‘Unravelling’, the second record from Channel D, makes for a wholly intoxicating listening experience. Reflecting an age where to switch on the news is to dare ourselves to face the scariest parts of a horror film, resulting in – for an increasing number of us – a state of high anxiety, these are 11 songs which speak of acute turmoil, whether personal or universal.

From Kurdish Iraqi photographer Zewar Fadhil’s dramatic cover image of a  distorted, featureless individual, to the often claustrophobic music contained within, ‘Unravelling’ is an album which explores the shadiest corners of the human psyche, with its themes of alienation, fear, loneliness, insomnia, panic, madness, and ultimately dying and death itself.

Channel D is writer-singer, visual artist and film-maker Nick de Grunwald, whose debut 2013 album ‘Mosaic Of Disarray’ was described by Q magazine as offering “worldly lyrics, no little panache and a gritty edge” and by Uncut as “dark baritone story-telling”. While that album was much-praised, ‘Unravelling’ is a giant step forwards, being less a collection of songs and more a cohesive album-length statement.

“I’d had panic attacks and insomnia on and off since 2001, when my mother died in the same week as 9/11,” Nick admits. “Two years ago, things got considerably worse, which is where these songs germinated. I kind of unravelled. I believe these songs came out of that really bad time. I hope what I experienced will resonate with anyone for whom the night can play tricks with your mind. Or who find terrifying the daily round of suicides, beheadings, bombs and the ravages of war.”

Recorded at The Situation Room in West London with Nick co-producing alongside Tim Wills (Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds, The Cure), ‘Unravelling’ is undoubtedly a dark album but one that is shot through with a music of salvation to create a very English take on the widescreen Americana of the likes of Sparklehorse and Eels, converting the sand blown landscapes of David Lynch into the dark forest fringes of the heart of England.

‘Unravelling’ is released on limited edition vinyl through Straight Lines Are Fine on July 22nd, 2016. The record is also available on digital formats now.

Have a listen to this Swansea Beauty…

“‘The Gangway’ is a small derelict lane in Swansea… We used to hang out there, playing Spin The Bottle with a bottle of panda pops, or kicking about old knackered footballs with the orange inner tubes bursting out. A miss-spent youth, you might say…”.

So says Trampolene frontman Jack Jones about their new track. Have a listen here:
