Dan Michaelson and The Coastguards – Burning Hearts

First taste of the upcoming album from the upcoming album Distance, that’s out on the 18th of August 2014 on The State51 Conspiracy.
“Progressing from the minimal atmosphere of last year’s much-lauded long-player ‘Blindspot’, Dan Michaelson returns to a full-band sound on what he describes as a ‘misleadingly upbeat’ first single from the record. A romantic tale of two lovers dancing their way towards the end of the world.”

Gruff Rhys – Liberty (Is Where We’ll Be) – Tour Update

Gruff Rhys announces the release of ‘Liberty (Is Where We’ll Be)’, the second single from his hugely acclaimed fourth solo album, with a new video and the confirmation of an autumn tour across the UK and Europe.

The single is due on July 21st on Turnstile and is taken from ‘American Interior’, Gruff’s highest charting solo record to date and part of a uniquely ambitious multi-format project telling the story of Welsh explorer John Evans’ fantastical journey across the States to find a lost tribe of Welsh speaking Native Americans.

‘Liberty (Is Where We’ll Be)’ sees Gruff takes Evans’ own diary entries to create lyrics for a gorgeously harmonic piece of string drenched baroque pop – nothing less than the sound of one of our greatest songwriters at the height of his powers.
