MORPHINE AND CUPCAKES

Band:EMILY OHALLORAN
Album:MORPHINE AND CUPCAKES
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:cd
Genre:Alt-Country / Americana

Emily O'Halloran is not a trend-driven artist. Fresh and seemingly in her own world, she writes smoky Americana, her husky voice enveloping each track like cut velvet. Delivering her poetically understated songs in a penetrating baritone, Emily creates a cinematic Americana ghost town of landscape shot through with a raw, mystical energy -- bordering at times on the shamanic. Her voice speaks volumes, like her lyrics, deep, intimate, and intensely compelling.Think Nico and Tom Waits.For Morphine and Cupcakes her debut outing, Emily joined forces with Producer Mark Howard, who`s many legendary collaborators include Bob Dylan, Lucinda Williams and Tom Waits. Her debut album "Morphine and Cupcakes" is a doped-up serenade for the Bonnie's, the Clyde's, the lovers and the thieves. It is desert music, well past midnight in an old pick-up truck where you don't know where the ground ends and the stars appear.

"One listen to Ms. O'Halloran's voice will provide you insight to understanding what audio transcendence can truly offer, in the most sophisticatedly understated way. Her breathy, yet textured vocals are other worldly… It's a trip to be likened with the tender side of Lucinda Williams, the breeziness of Cowboy Junkies, and the atmospheric wonderment of Tom Waits. This collection is pure poetry and beatnik beauty at its finest". Innocent Words

TONIGHT`S SPECIAL DEATH

Band:KING DUDE
Album:TONIGHT`S SPECIAL DEATH
Label:AVANT!
Format:
Genre:Dark Wave/Goth

King Dude is one rising star in the US dark-folk scene. The solo project by Thomas Jefferson Cowgill (previously in the black/death metal band Book Of Black Earth) is releasing it's first efforts : trad-apocalyptic ballads immersed in satanic and pagan symbolism mixing the dark touch of Death In June with the classic folk of Dylan, Guthrie and Leonard Cohen in a very personal and impressive way.

Now, a few months after the 12” vinyl release of the first EP “My Beloved Ghost”, AVANT! is proud to give life to the LP press of “Tonight’s Special Death”, the King’s first full-length album, previously released only as as a CD-r by Disaro. This new version is pressed on clear grey vinyl and features two previous unreleased bonus tracks along with an insert and lyric sheet.

 

 

ENDLESS DAYS LP

Band:DREAM AFFAIR
Album:ENDLESS DAYS LP
Label:AVANT!
Format:LP
Genre:Dark Wave/Goth

Dream Affair is a cold wave group based in Brooklyn, NY. Frontman Hayden Payne began Dream Affair in Philadelphia in 2009 as a guitar-based outlet to his previous band Void Vision. It has since relocated to the industrial outskirts of Brooklyn, New York and expanded its lineup. Since the release of their sold-out EP All I Want last fall, the band has expanded their initial references of UK post-punk and French cold wave to incorporate sounds of Wax Trax industrial and 4AD shoegaze. Comparisons have also been made with bands such as The Cure and Depeche Mode. It is no coincidence that this evolution of Dream Affair’s sound corresponds with the addition of Abby Echiverri (synths/vocals) and Frank Deserto (bass). Their debut full-length album perfects the cold dichotomy: the conflict and balance between bleak indifference and struggling emotions. Romanticism in the vocals and guitars are vetted against the industrial chill of the rhythm section. The result is a testament of self-awareness, absurdity, and isolation.

LTD LP - RIYL - Cure, Sisters Of Mercy, Joy Division, Siouxsie& The Banshees

A GREAT DISGRACE

Band:SAME OLD STORY
Album:A GREAT DISGRACE

With a growing fan base and a sold out EP, Same Old Story is finally getting ready to release their debut album. In summer/fall of 2010 they entered Leon Music, an award winning studio together with producer Richard Engborg. This time with the intention to make it faster, bigger, and better. With influences from the mid 90´s but with a more modern output it is easy to say that these guys are here to give older colleagues Millencolin and Rise Against a good competition. ”A Great Disgrace” won´t disappoint anyone with a preference for good melodic punk rock.
