San Francisco folk-rock artist John Haesemeyer officially released his second studio album today entitled ‘Three Mirrors’. This album was quite the production, working with 20 plus other nationally prominent musicians including the former guitarist for Prince. John had a album release party on the 20th (Saturday) in San Francisco at a live-recorded show (“Live at Coast”) at Coast Recorders, the historic SF recording studio whose client list includes Neil Young, REM and Rod Stewart. It was a huge success packing the house and a great celebration for a great album release.

In a recent interview with us we asked how his new album ‘Three Mirrors’ differs from his debut release ‘Come Along Quickly’. This is how he replied, “Well we focused on doing only 7 songs, 4 of which are more highly produced. Sound-wise its more layered; there’s more depth. In terms of composition, the songs have more complex melodies and harmonies, although now that I think of it, there is one song that is mostly just two chords that focuses on the lyrics (“Back to College”) which I wrote long ago and finally got around to recording. We also have a country duet on the record – my first time writing a duet (“Vancouvers Shore”).”

Below is an exclusive preview of the official music video for his title track ‘Three Mirrors’.

Mastodon’s new metal twerking video for ‘The Motherload’

Looks like the epidemic of twerking has now made it’s way in to the metal genre… Mastadon’s new music video for ‘The Motherload’ seems to feature a “motherload” of ass twerking. What do you think of this culture clash? Cry for attention? Good mix?

New urban pop artist Halo releases ‘Highlights’ EP

Four song collection out now following Sept 15th release date

Nigerian born, London based Halo is a rapper with a confident urban pop sound. His brand new four song EP, ‘Highlights’, was released on September 15th.

The EP, full of upbeat melodies and soulful vocals, as well as some top class production, had one aim when Halo was writing it – enjoying all the many positives in life in a world which can be focussed on the negative. As Halo puts it himself:

‘Everyday is somebody’s birthday so there’s always a reason to turn the music up’.

However, in spite of the positive aims, this isn’t a sugary take on the urban genre, and Halo’s sound has a solid, grounded feel to it. For a taste of what he’s about check out ‘Think About Me’ taken from the EP: Soundcloud ‘Think About Me’ >>

Halo is also not new to the music business. His career until now has already seen him working on previous projects supporting the likes of Ludacris and receiving support from across the board, including from poles apart tastemakers Tim Westwood and Tom Robinson. He also featured on an unreleased Leona Lewis track, which goes to show he isn’t starting from scratch in a music industry which is often difficult to break.

But with this new EP, Halo is taking that reputation in the industry, and looking to build on it. Keep your eyes peeled for a new video on the way too, with a new clip in development for EP opening track ‘Think About Me’.

Ju-Taun ‘By The River’

This is probably one of my hottest finds this week, with lyrics that are so powerful, it just touches your soul!

These brothers did an awesome job to bring you a complete, infectious track and music video. Not only are the lyrics extremely powerful, together with the instrumentals and the harmony, they manage to take you away and point you to the right direction to a better place you belong!

Their organic blues-ish folk gospel sound is hard not to dig and I’m looking forward to hear more of them in the very near future!

Eric Unseen aim to prove they have been ‘Brought Up The Right Way’ with new album

LP to be released on the same day as lead single, ‘That Ain’t Love’ – October 1st

A South Wales based boy band with a taste for energetically infectious melodies, Eric Unseen are a three piece with a growing reputation in the UK indie scene.

Having supported and gigged with a host of high profile names including Bastille, We are Scientists, The Alarm, The Stiff Little Fingers, Cast, Ocean Colour Scene, Skindred, Paramore, Goldie Lookin Chain, The Subways, and The Automatic, the band are now ramping up for further exposure with new album ‘Brought Up the Right Way’.

With a sound that comes across like a contemporary version of The Smiths with an indie twist, Eric Unseen are unlike any other band on the circuit at the moment, and aim to drive their point home with this album’s lead single – ‘That Ain’t Love’

The band are no strangers to the stage and have really turned heads with the quality of their live shows. In addition to the impressive list of gigs above, they also reached the final of national competition ‘Live and Unsigned’, fighting through 10,000 acts to play in the showcase event at London’s O2 arena in front of 3 thousand people.

Their success though has not gone to their heads, and they happily joke about the gig they played the next day – a small pub with seven people in it who were there to watch the football.

Fans include producers Greg Haver (The Manic Street Preachers, Cataonia, Super Furry Animals), Richard Jackson (Duffy, The Automatic) and Slade front man Noddy Holder, all impressed by Eric Unseen’s versatile and consistently high quality songwriting.

And it all comes from an outlook of simplicity and the feel of a band simply having fun, with lyrics inspired by a relatable life in ‘The Valleys’ of Wales painting a very different picture from the trashy MTV attempt at reality television.

The album and single will be available from October 1st and is being funded by new crowd funding site Free The Music Book >>
