Jackson Howard (USA) – “Just for the Mystery”
Liebe Medienpartner,

hiermit informieren wir Sie über die im September anstehende “Just for the Mystery”-Tour von JACKSON HOWARD. Hierbei wird er das gleichnamige Album zum ersten Mal dem deutschen Publikum vorstellen.

Jackson Howard verbindet die faszinierende Prosa und den Erzählstil von Paul Simon mit dem jugendlichen “blue-eyed Soul” eines Jason Mraz und einer faszinierenden Fingerspitzentechnik, die an Tommy Emmanuel erinnert. In den letzten drei Jahren hat Howard über 400 Auftritte in den USA und Island absolviert, darunter Opener für Nicolas David (The Voice) und Nick Jameson von Foghat. Sein zweites Studioalbum “Just for the Mystery” ist im Frühling 2017 veröffentlich worden. Daran beteiligt ist u.a. der Produzent Billy Smiley (Newsboys).

Nachdem er seinen Doktortitel erlangte, arbeitete Howard noch einige Zeit in der Forschung, bevor er sich ganz seiner Musikkarriere widmete. Viele seiner Stücke beschäftigen sich mit dem Wandel und der ewigen Suche nach sich selbst. Introspektiv und doch allgemeingültig, behandeln seine Texte die Themen Bedauern, Hoffnung, Selbsttäuschung und die Liebe. Der Opener “Just for the Mystery” ist ein lebhafter Track, der durch ein befreiendes, metaphorisches Ausatmen das Loslassen romantisierter Erinnerungen beschreibt. Das Album bewegt sich von eingänglichen Songs wie “A Place in this World” und “Surround You”, über Lieder wie “Dizzy”, welche den Schmerz des Verrats thematisieren bis hin zur Beschreibung eines existenzielles Dilemmas in “This Town„. “If I Fall„ beschreibt schließlich die optimistische Hoffnung auf wahre Liebe, verbunden mit der Klage darüber wie egoistisch die Liebe in unserer konsumorientierten Welt geworden ist.

Mit diesem Album im Gepäck tourte Howard bereits ausgiebig in seinem Heimatland, den USA. Nun möchte er seine Musik auch dem europäischen Publikum vorstellen, wenn er im September zum ersten Mal nach Deutschland kommt.
Man muss Howard live erleben, um die Lieder so zu hören, wie sie in ihrer Intuition beabsichtigt waren – rau und unbearbeitet, von Angesicht zu Angesicht und ergänzt durch spitzfindiges Storytelling und eine gute Prise Humor.

Jackson Howard (USA) – “Just for the Mystery”
Dear media partners,

we will inform you about the upcoming “Just for the Mystery” tour of JACKSON HOWARD. He is going to present the homonymous album for the first time to the German audience.

Jackson Howard blends the captivating prose and storytelling of Paul Simon with the youthful blue-eyed soul of Jason Mraz and a mesmerizing fingerstyle guitar at times reminiscent of Tommy Emmanuel. Howard has played over 400 shows in the past 3 years in the US and Iceland, opened for Nicolas David (The Voice) and Nick Jameson of Foghat, and recently completed his 2nd studio album Just for the Mystery with Grammy nominated producer Billy Smiley (Newsboys), Ritchie Biggs (Civil Wars, Switchfoot), and Billy Whittington (Amy Grant).

Having earned a PhD and worked in research prior to his music career, many of Jackson Howard’s songs deal with change and our eternal search for self. Introspective yet universal, his lyrics touch regret, hope, self-deception, and love – both vacuous and real. His new album ‘Just for the Mystery’ opens with the bouncy, pop-inspired title track which is a metaphorical exhale, letting go of romanticized memories and acknowledging that some doors are best left unopened The album moves through songs of in “A Place in this World” and “Surround You”, to the pain of betrayal in “Dizzy”, existential dilemma in “This Town” and finally to an optimistic hope for truer love in “If I Fall” which laments how selfish love has become in our consumer culture.

With Just for the Mystery which dropped on April 2nd 2017, Howard will begin a tour of the United States east of the Mississippi through the end of August and in Europe in September. Catch him live to hear the songs the way they were intended – raw, face to face, and complemented with quirky storytelling and humor.

For Fans of: Passenger, Paul Simon, Jason Mraz or Tommy Emmanuel

Happy Birthday in Heaven to my dear friend for many years, Allan Holdsworth,

There is no greater measure of a life well lived than the amount of people
he had impacted, and by that measure the artist Allan Holdsworth
lived a very good life. This man took a plank of wood, a few strings,
and some wires and transformed people’s lives in a way that few others have.
The ultimate genius of the rarest kind. Immensily missed….

The legendary Tony Levin, wrote this beautiful poem for Allan HoldsworthCrack In The Sky. The poem, published in Tony’s poetry book “Fragile As A Song”, is regularly performed by Tony’s band Stick Men, featuring Pat Mastelotto and Markus Reuter.

Love from
Leonardo Pavkovic ‘Nardini’

To remember Allan Holdsworth, I invite You to download for free this two great version of Crack In The Sky, one by Tony Levin‘s Stick Men featuring Pat Mastelotto and Markus Reuter, and the other one by Dewa Budjana featuring Tony Levin and Allan’s favorite musician, Gary Husband.

M.A.G.S. Returns w/ Video for “Demon” (RIYL Car Seat Headrest, FIDLAR, Dev Hynes)

Hi Musikoon,

Hope all is well. I am writing in hopes of pitching Buffalo-based fuzzy indie rock act M.A.G.S. and his new single/video for "Demon" on your blog. Please let me know if you would like any more information and i can provide or send over a download.

Band: M.A.G.S.

RIYL: Carseat Headrest, Wavves, Cloud Nothings

Promo Pic / Album Cover | Facebook | Twitter | Bandcamp

Without a doubt, Buffalo’s music scene is buzzing about multi-instrumentalist, M.A.G.S. (aka Elliott Douglas). Signed to Admirable Traits Records, M.A.G.S. popularity has been shot out of a cannon since the release of his debut EP Cellophane in 2015 notably due to prominent features in the TV shows Shameless, The Flash, and Famous In Love. M.A.G.S. can best be described to new listeners as Cloud Nothings Attack on Memory re-worked by Lightspeed Champion era Dev Hynes.

The video for "Demon" was shot, edited, and directed by Bobby Burns and stars Douglas himself. "Demon" is all about facing your fears but not necessarily conquering them, more so coming to terms that there are some things that are so deep-rooted that you can never fully get past. You learn to to cope with it instead of fighting it.

All of the instruments are written and mixed by Douglas and recorded by Dave Drago at 1809 Studios in Rochester, NY. "Demon" is the first single off the forthcoming album due out 9/8/17 via digital, tape, and cassette.

TALINKA
Dear Friends in Music
Please check MoonJune’s new release (licensed by Fanfare Music, UK), a debut album by the Israeli born and London based actress, filmmaker and singer TALI ATZMON. This album that is hugely recommended by Mr. MoonJune Itself, the legendary Robert Wyatt.

“Talinka – such an evocative name – wittily appropriate for this intimate set so sensitively arranged around Tali’s straight from the heart, true and soulful voice. Since hearing Ms. Atzmon’s discrete contributions to records by Gilad Atzmon and friends I’ve long wished she would make a record revealing her own deeply personal approach to music, and here, at last, is that record.” Robert Wyatt

INSTANT DOWNLOAD • $9
Direct link: https://talinka-moonjune.bandcamp.com/album/talinka
Led by vocalist Tali Atzmon, the group Talinka creates a new distinctive sound that explores the diverse musical journeys of four British musicians, each already distinguished in their fields. Tali Atzmon was a renowned actress and singer in Israel; Jenny Bliss is a baroque virtuoso artist who plays viola da gamba, baroque violin, flute and sings on the album; Yaron Stavi is one of the leading double bass players in Europe and Gilad Atzmon is an internationally acclaimed jazz saxophonist, performing here on bass clarinet, soprano saxophone and accordion.

Talinka transcends boundaries creating a natural continuum between folk, jazz, tango and early music. The unusual choice of instruments and combination of personalities create an amalgam of past and present, East and West. The album features seven original compositions, including Tali Atzmon’s soulful songs Losing Vision, When You’re Gone and Every Now and Then. “I wrote the song Losing Vision in response to the Syrian refugee crisis, she says, “the bass clarinet together with the viola da gamba create a primordial auditory realm that evokes a deep sense of Sisyphean existential struggle yet a cry for a change.” The album also features unique interpretations of the classic songs from The Great American Songbook Don’t Explain and You Don’t Know What Love Is.

“For us, the love of music extends beyond style and genre. We believe in songs and beauty being vital forces of nature. We adhere to simplicity, harmony and warmth. The outcome is a natural breathing, deep and spacious sonic adventure,” says Tali Atzmon.

Tali Atzmon vocals; Jenny Bliss Bennett viola de gamba, violin, flute, vocal;
Gilad Atzmon – bass clarinet, soprano sax, accordeon; Yaron Stavi – double bass;
with special guests Frank Harrison piano and Enzo Zirilli percussion
Led by Israeli actress and singer Tali Atzmon, this lifting blend of folk, early music, jazz, tango and free improvisation, weaves a considerable spell … a subtle sense of exotic otherworldliness. (4 stars) Chris Ingham, Mojo Magazine, UK

An impressive leadership début from Tali Atzmon. The album touches many bases with its wide ranging and evocative arrangements while her lyrics are perceptive and intelligent and enhance the music. (4 stars) Ian Mann, The Jazz Mann, UK

Talinka brings together an unusual set of instruments (viola de gamba, bass clarinet, double bass) behind Tali Atzmon’s exotic art song vocals. The original songs are dreamy and often undefinable, infused with elements of jazz, echoes of klezmer and abstractions of tango. Talinka also borrows a few pages from the Great American Songbook in torchy, after-hours renditions of “Don’t Explain” and “You Don’t Know What Love Is.” The album’s closing selection, the mordantly romantic “Every Now and Then,” is a dead-ringer for latter-day Leonard Cohen. – Dave Luhrssen, Shepherd Express, USA

Tali Atzmon’s voice features unerring sensitivity to pitch and highly expressive but never overelaborated lyrical delivery. Her approach to lyrics—a combination of her own material and standards—had a directness and sensitivity that favoured simplicity and nuance over the familiar range of vocal techniques which have become a staple of jazz singing over many years. Her choice of material tended toward the elegiac, which perfectly matched the strikingly unusual combination of instruments supporting her—not least the combination of bass clarinet (or accordion) and viola da gamba. – Wakefield Jazz, UK

Last year (2016), MoonJune Records – a truly and brutally independent one-man-operated New York City based record label with focus on progressive music exploring and expanding boundaries of Jazz, Rock, Avant, Ethno, the Unknown and Anything in Between and beyond – arrived at the 7th place among much bigger and much more established record companies with larger marketing budget, and whose staff overwhelmingly outnumbers my stuff, composed solely by Me, Myself and I. MoonJune records is largely a labor of love, I do what I like, I like what I do, and all artists on my label are also my friends. We are an extended family of similarly minded people. We enjoy what we do. Besides some household jazz-rock-fusion and prog-rock names, MoonJune Records promotes many talented musicians that probably You have not heard of before, or have heard but haven’t tasted their music, extraordinary artists from Indonesia, Spain, Serbia, Italy, Belgium, Israel, UK, Uruguay, Brazil, Canada, Japan, Germany, USA. This year, I humbly invite You again to vote for MoonJune Recordsat the 82nd annual DownBeat Readers Poll 2017. And of course You can vote for any other great jazz and beyond album, artist and more, or other label. Your vote counts.

But this time I also have a very special request. Earlier this year, on April 15, my long time friend with whom I had a more than special personal and professional relation for over 15 years, the legendary Allan Holdsworth, passed away at his home in Vista, CA. There is no greater measure of a life well lived than the amount of people he had impacted, and by that measure the artist Allan Holdsworth lived a very good life. This man took a plank of wood, a few strings, and some wires and transformed people’s lives in a way that few others have. The ultimate genius of the rarest kind. One of THE greatest musicians ever lived. Allan Holdsworth is above all, the ultimate Jazz musician. My very special request is to vote for ALLAN HOLDSWORTH in the HALL OF FAME category at the 82nd Annual DownBeat Readers Poll. For whatever unknown reasons, his name wasn’t listed by DownBeat stuff among so many great jazz and beyond jazz artists, but at the end of the list, there is a little box where Youc an make Your own choice, and I am kindly asking You, to include the great name of ALLAN HOLDSWORTH in that box. He truly deserves this.

Quoting John Kelman of All About Jazz: Moonjune Records’ version of jazz may sound nothing like your granddaddy’s jazz… or maybe even your daddy’s … but in its unfettered spirit of exploration – wittingly deconstructing cultural and stylistic boundaries and relentlessly discovering new methods and new means – a good portion of its catalog is unequivocally imbued with the spirit that has defined the music since its inception. Fearless music for the 21st century, it’s where to go if you don’t want to hear where jazz is; it’s where to go if you want to hear where jazz is going.

And quoting Anil Prasad of Innerviews: This is a great overview of the ever-intrepid, genre-bending MoonJune label’s output that points towards, and far beyond, the jazz universe. The price is right. Download this thing and start a journey exploring one of the world’s most interesting catalogs of music.

Poughkeepsie-based Chamber Rock act The Warp/The Weft Release Single “Briars”

Hi Musikoon,

Hope all is well. I am writing in hopes of pitching Poughkeepsie chamber rock act The Warp/The Weft and their new single "Briars" on your blog. Please let me know if you would like any more information and i can provide or send over a download.

Band: The Warp/The Weft
RIYL: Wild Beasts, Antony and the Johnstons
Single: "Briars" (soundcloud link)
Website | Promo Pic by Mel Clark | Album Art | Facebook Page

Poughkeepsie-based hard chamber rock quartet The Warp/The Weft are psyched to announce the release of their single "Briars" off their forthcoming album Mapping an Absence out 7/29/17 via Admirable Traits Records.

Here is what lead singer Shane Murphy had to say about "Briars"

"I had the idea for ‘Briars’ for quite a while. I nearly shelved it, but it breathed the way I was hoping it might when I finally brought it to the band. It was the song on the album that seemed to want the dramatic vocal texturing and the whirr of the hurdy gurdy. And guitarist Chris Pellnat has always wanted a song that ended a cappella…he finally got it!"

The Warp/The Weft, active since 2012 in and beyond New York’s Hudson River Valley, has earned praise for its uniqueness and song-crafting from casual and devoted listeners alike. Blending traditional and avant-garde styles, the warmth of a good wool sweater and the sometimes-bleak cold of an upstate winter, the progressive folk and psychedelia that the band brings to bear (compared to Fairport Convention and Jethro Tull) is propelled by poetic lyrics and a "spirit-conjuring," lilting tenor that "puts Murphy alongside Shearwater’s Jonathan Meiburg as one of the most captivating high-register voices in rock today" (Ron Hart, Chronogram). 2017’s Mapping an Absence introduces bassist Trevor Larcheveque, whose vocal harmonies help to anchor the band firmly in the chamber category.

The Warp/The Weft are…

Trevor Larcheveque: Bass/Vocals

Christian Laura: Drums

Shane Murphy: Vocals/Guitar

Chris Pellnat: Guitar/Accordion

Let me know if you need any additional information + thanks for your time.

Best,

Mike

Premiere: Tinexis – The Dark Side Of The Moon incl. Stas Drive Remix

Exclusive Premiere: The Dark Side Of The Moon incl. Stas Drive Remix

As a new label bursts onto the current dance music scene, Dreamcatcher is a bright light in the ever-expanding musical firmament. With a debut release that captures the essence of the underground progressive sound, Tinexis illuminates “The Dark Side of the Moon”.

A major force in his home country’s music scene, Tinexis is a mysterious artist in a world of social media noise. Pushing against the idea that high visibility is the key to success, the Swiss artist finds an ‘appeal in anonymity’. Whether performing live, through his “Other Sides” podcast, or brand new monthly “Depth Immersion” show on Proton Radio, Tinexis continues to mesmerise and hypnotise through a unique blend of music that captivates fans and listeners alike.

His debut release thus continues to build on a reputation that is set to grow. “Dark Side of the Moon” is a brooding dance floor gem that evolves with consummate ease via a backdrop of pounding beat, driving percussion and melodic mastery. Shimmering arpeggios vie with intricate bass groove and stuttered vocal cuts as an emotive chord progression flows. Pausing at a stripped back breakdown, a stepped lead line cuts through the sonic spectrum with its crystalline edge before joining forces with rhythm and bass once more in the third movement to hugely impressive effect. This is a remarkable debut.

Ukrainian DJ and producer, Stas Drive, needs little introduction to the underground dance fraternity. An artist of skill and renown, his work in both the live and studio arenas have seen Stas dominate Russia and Ukraine’s club scene. Performances at festivals including the famous “Kazantip” as well as working as event promoter and DJ school teacher, has seen Stas gather a wealth of experience as he continues to become a major force through his studio work.

A double-century of production credits sit proudly next to the Stas Drive name as he finds his work allied to blue-chip imprints including microCastle, Sudbeat and Hope. Indeed, it was for the latter that saw Stas make an appearance on Nick Warren’s hugely successful crowd-funded album, “The Soundgarden”, with his track, “Arjuna”. Regularly supported by the DJ glitterati, John Digweed, Sasha and Hernan Cattaneo have all kept the Stas Drive name in the limelight.

Now working his production magic for Dreamcatcher, the Stas Drive remix of “Dark Side of the Moon” is built upon a dark, pounding groove that sees a seismic kick lay the foundations for a running bass line to keep energy high, as metallic percussive shots span the stereo-spectrum in precise fashion. A wealth of additional production material is in full evidence as a dance-floor jewel explodes at the mid-point with its stabbed synth line. Using Tinexis’ emotive lead line to full effect at the breakdown, Stas Drive’s skill is to combine this with his own production elements in a shimmering, dynamic club classic that climbs to a rousing zenith in the third movement.
Tinexis and Stas Drive have provided a journey of enlightenment on “The Dark Side of the Moon”.

Already supported; Danny Howard (BBC Radio), Pete Tong (BBC Radio), Booka Shade, Eelke Kleijn, Grum, Ruben De Ronde, Paco Osuna, Dolan Bergin, Marc DePulse, Guy Mantzur, Rob Hes, Animal Trainer…
