"On Ash & Ice, Hince and Mosshart...polish their edgy sound, built on his caustic riffs and her witchy wail. But the difference on this LP, the band's fifth, is all in the beats... there are new production sounds, paired with catchy guitar and vocal riffs." - Rolling Stone

Haley Bonar's Impossible Dream Streaming In Full At NPR First Listen

Haley Bonar's Impossible Dream Streaming In Full At NPR First Listen
New Album Out August 5 
Fall Tour Dates Announced 
photo credit: Graham Tolbert
"Impossible Dream, finds the underrated Minnesotan in top form, mixing darkness and light with a deft  touch." - NPR"Bonar’s voice and lyrics are as pure and potent as ever, and the constantly shifting guitar aesthetics — from a distorted jangle to swampy bass and back — make for a versatile but focused body of work. Listen." - Stereogum 
“Bonar creates a whimsical masterclass of indie-pop songwriting.” - Consequence Of Sound
"In the past 10 years, she naturally progressed from stripped-down folk and country music to incorporating various layers of sound ranging from classical piano to sunshine pop.” - Interview
"I love this ('I Can Change’)." - Sir Elton John, Rocket Hour on Beats 1
"My pick for album of of the year” - Lauren Laverne, BBC 6 Music
Stream: Impossible Dream via NPR First Listen
Watch: "Kismet Kill" official video via NPR First Watch
Haley Bonar will release her highly anticipated full-length album Impossible Dream on August 5th via GNDwire (US) / Spit Comet (CA) / Memphis Industries (UK + EU). The critically praised album is streaming in full a week ahead of its August 5th release date via NPR’s First ListenNPR's Stephen Thompson says, "Haley Bonar was only 18 when she released her first album back in 2001 — and 15 years later, her sharp and reflective songwriting dwells (appropriately enough) on her current place in that ceaseless coming-of-age process. The songs on Impossible Dream revolve around the ways we age into our identity, learn to live within our own skin, and try to look back only fleetingly, with as little regret as possible. "I was impossible when I was beautiful," she sings in "Kismet Kill," packing all the ambivalence she can into just seven words."

Impossible Dream has been rave reviews from influential publications such as MOJO, Q, Uncut, Bust, No Depression and more. The album is available to pre-order now on CD and limited edition teal vinyl in Haley Bonar’s Online Store as well as digitally via iTunes. All iTunes pre-orders will include a free immediate download of “Kismet Kill,” “I Can Change” and “Stupid Face.” Impossible Dream follows up Haley Bonar's acclaimed release Last War and was recorded on analog tape in at Pachyderm Studios in Cannon Falls, MN and was mixed by Chris Coady (Beach House, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, TVOTR) & Robbie Lackritz (Feist) at Haut Bruun.

Haley Bonar has also announced fall US and UK shows. The upcoming tour fall tour will make stop in major cites including Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Boston and more. Additional tour dates will be announced in the coming weeks. 
Haley Bonar has spent a lot of the past few years poring over her past. That has something to do with the sound of her recent recordings, whether it be her recent solo efforts or the throwback funky punky grooves of her side project Gramma’s Boyfriend.


But on her latest album Impossible Dream, this glance in the rearview has also inspired some of the most poignant and pointed work of her long career as songwriter even if you have to dig a little to find Bonar within the tunes.


Impossible Dream then, like all of Bonar’s work, gains its power from a combination of the personal and universal. Even when she sings about her days hitting up basement punk shows on “Better Than Me” or kicks off this album with an ode to her formative years in the gently chiming “Hometown,” it will surely stir up memories from your own younger days.

And as with her prior albums, Bonar reveals a widescreen look at the world, touching on issues of sexuality, jealousy, and the fragile ties that bind relationships together. If they connect with your circumstance and the cultural conversation at large, that’s just a welcome coincidence.
“Those things have always been relevant to me,” Bonar says. “Those conversations have been happening my entire life.”

What is clear right now is the impact this album is looking to have on the world at large. Bonar has already received some excited press notices about the two singles from Impossible Dream that have already been released: “I Can Change” (“a resolute pillar of bold, classic songwriter,” according to The Line of Best Fit) and “Kismet Kill,” which Stereogum called “a penetrating rumination on just how transitory love and beauty can be.“). The biggest stamp of approval, though, has come from Elton John. The venerated singer/songwriter chose to play “I Can Change” on his Beats 1 show Rocket Man Radio. “Hearing Elton John say my song is beautiful is pretty awesome,” Bonar admits.

To say that Bonar’s career has been building towards that nod from a rock god, though, is to dismiss all the hard work she has done since she started releasing music in 2001. The 33-year-old singer/songwriter has been building a fanbase slowly and steadily, while remaining in complete control of her art. As with all of her prior albums, Bonar wrote and arranged all the songs onImpossible Dream. She also co-produced the record with Minneapolis mainstay Jacob Hanson. Chances are she’d be making this music even without the support of a label or her many fans around the world. But, just as the title of this new album suggests, she’s living out her wildest and most impossible dream right now.

“If somebody came to me as a teenager and said, ‘In 15 years, you’ll have made nine records and be touring the world,’ I would have been, like, ‘No way,’” she says, laughing. “It’s true that it might not look like a lot to some people, but it’s very special to me.”

Hannah Peel announces new album and shares single, 'All That Matters'

Hannah Peel
New single 
‘All That Matters’ 
Out 9th September

New album Awake But Always Dreaming out 23rdSeptember

Label: My Own Pleasure

“A great singer and a latter day Delia Derbyshire” The Observer

“One to watch” The Independent

“Hugely impressive” Drowned In Sound

“Euphoric, orchestral pop” The Quietus

“Hauntingly-beautiful, leviathan atmospheric pop” The Line Of Best Fit


Acclaimed singer-songwriter and member of celebrated band The Magnetic NorthHannah Peel has announced the release of lead single ‘All That Matters’, taken from her remarkable second solo album ‘Awake But Always Dreaming’. ‘All That Matters’, an electronic dream-pop gem, will be released on 9th September.

The Northern Irish artist and composer is set to release the brand new album on 23rd September, which features 10 new songs plus a cover of Paul Buchanan’s ‘Cars In The Garden’ featuring a duet with Hayden Thorpe (Wild Beasts). ‘All That Matters’ opens proceedings with a pop mantra of living in the moment – “all that matters is here, sings Peel over layers of electronics.

Talking about the track, Peel said: “I wrote this song as a bittersweet mantra for someone close to me and since then, it seems to have also become my own tune to lift me out of troubled moments. A constant reminder that no matter what life throws at you, to not forget about the ones who will always care, the ones who are standing waiting to welcome you back, the ones who will forever look after you and say simply, they love you. At the end of the day, that’s all that matters, caring and being cared for. Yet to love and not be loved is one of the saddest things of all.”

Peel first came to recognition with her mesmerizing, hand-punched ‘music box’ EP ‘Rebox’, featuring covers of ‘80s bands Cocteau Twins, Soft Cell, & New Order. Having released her critically lauded solo debut album ‘The Broken Wave’, Peel then formed The Magnetic North, a highly praised and expansive collaborative project with Simon Tong (The Verve, The Good The Bad And The Queen, Gorillaz) and Erland Cooper (Erland & The Carnival). She also created a series of limited edition EPs, - the increasingly electronic ‘Nailhouse’ in 2013, followed by the stunning analogue beauty of ‘Fabricstate’ in 2014. A year later Peel released ‘Rebox 2’ with music-box covers of ‘Queen’ (originally performed by Perfume Genius), John Grant’s ‘Pale Green Ghosts’, Wild Beasts’ ‘Palace’, as well as her glorious cover of East India Youth’s triumphant ‘Heaven How Long’.

2016 has been yet another prolific year for Peel, so far including collaborations with Beyond The Wizard’s Sleeve (aka Erol Alkan & Richard Norris) - she features on two BBC6 playlisted singles ‘Diagram Girl’ and ‘Creation’ - and composing under her new synth-based, space-age alter-ego Mary Casio with an experimental piece combining analogue electronics and a 33-piece colliery brass band (which debuted to a sold out Manchester audience in May). Meanwhile The Magnetic North released their critically acclaimed follow up LP ‘Prospect Of Skelmersdale’ in March.

Produced and recorded with long-term collaborator Erland Cooper, with orchestrations by Peel, both in their own, richly analogue studio in Shoreditch, London and at Attica Audio in County Donegal, Ireland, her new solo album ‘Awake But Always Dreaming’ is a record about memory: the luminous and beautiful formation of memories and the devastating loss or slow, insidious damage to the mind. “I’ve read 1 in 3 of us will die with dementia, and a third of us are connected to someone with dementia through family and friends”, says Hannah. “850,000 people in the UK alone have it now and 2 in 3 people affected will be women. It’s quite remarkable really, and it’s getting worse”.

“Nouvelle Vague has traded pogoing for a suave Parisian sway, some light cabaret swing and hints of the Caribbean.” —The New York Times
 
“The French band Nouvelle Vague takes classic New Wave singles from the '80s and adds a Brazilian twist — courtesy of the other new wave: bossa nova.”
NPR “World Café”
 
“Covering new wave and punk songs in a French-tinged, bossa nova-infused style, Nouvelle Vague takes classic songs to new places.”
NPR’s “All Songs Considered”
 
“Smoky-piped chanteuses + a ’60s bossa nova beat + ’80s new wave chestnuts =
one chouette cover band.”—Entertainment Weekly
 
 
Nouvelle Vague are set to release their four-song EP Athol Brose on September 2 via Kwaidan Records / !K7, their first new recordings since 2010. Stereogumpremieres (the title track) a reworking of a Cocteau Twins classic featuring Liset Alea. View full post HERE and SHARE HERE. For a video teaser of the new EP, view/share HERE and pre-order link HERE.
 
Nouvelle Vague is the brainchild of French producers Marc Collin and Olivier Libaux, who started the unique project in 2004, appropriating classic 80’s and 90’s hits from the punk, post-punk and new wave cannon and reinterpreting them as Brazilian Bossa Nova. The band employed a legion of female singers, many unknown until their performances with the band. Over the course of four records, the band sold more than one million albums worldwide including their self-titled 2004 album and 2006’s Bande A Part —which were released in the U.S.  The band toured internationally including sold out shows at Royal Albert Hall in London, The Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles and Olympia in Paris.
 
After a several year hiatus, Collin and Libaux embark on a new chapter in the Nouvelle Vague saga. Their new work not only contains the punk and post-punk reinventions that the band is known for but includes new remixes of Nouvelle Vague classic songs recorded with traditional live musicians and also marks the first original compositions by Libaux and Collin.

Brian Wilson & Friends originally aired on PBS nationwide throughout 2015. Initially offered exclusively in DVD and Blu-ray configurations as a premium gift incentive for viewers contributing donations during the network’s annual pledge drive, the new Brian Wilson & Friendsrelease marks the first time that a companion CD is being offered, along with bonus material not included during the public television airings including bonus tracks, behind-the-scenes footage, and interviews with guest artists.

The concert recording features Wilson – co-founder of the iconic band The Beach Boys – performing alongside his legendary touring band with longtime bandmate Al Jardine, former Beach Boys sidemen Blondie Chaplin and Ricky Fataar, with special guest appearances from Grammy award-winners Nate Ruess of Fun., country artist Kacey Musgraves, and acclaimed trumpet player/composer Mark Isham; Sebu Simonian of the multi-platinum, chart-topping indie pop-duo Capital Cities; and Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward of indie duo She & Him.

Brian Wilson & Friends contains many of the classic songs he is known for with “California Girls,” “Help Me Rhonda,” “Good Vibrations,” and many more making the set list. The release of Brian Wilson and Friends coincides with his Pet Sounds 50th Anniversary World Tour, a celebration and final performance of the acclaimed album in its entirety. In addition, De Capo Press recently announced they will publish his autobiography “I Am Brian Wilson: A Memoir”on October 11. Currently on the road with his band performing across the U.S., for an up-to-date tour schedule and further information please visit www.BrianWilson.com.

Brian Wilson is one of popular music’s most deeply revered figures, a legendary writer, producer, arranger and performer of some of the most cherished music in pop music history. Wilson began his career as a teenaged founding member of The Beach Boys, who signed with Capitol Records in July 1962 and released their first album, Surfin’ Safari, that same year. The band’s initial surf-rock focus was soon broadened to include other themes. Wilson’s innovative vocal and instrumental arrangements for major hits including “I Get Around,” “California Girls,” “Wouldn’t It Be Nice,” “God Only Knows,” and the No. 1 smash “Good Vibrations” made The Beach Boys America’s preeminent band of the 1960s.

Wilson has also achieved great solo success with 11 of his own albums released to date, including his acclaimed 2004 completion of an album he first began recording in the ‘60s, Brian Wilson Presents… SMiLE. The album earned Wilson his first GRAMMY® for a recording, which was followed by his second GRAMMY® win for producing The Beach Boys’ acclaimed 2011 release, The SMiLE Sessions. With his own band, Wilson has performed major, sold-out tours in recent years, and with The Beach Boys, he celebrated the iconic band’s 50th anniversary in 2012 with a major international tour and acclaimed studio album, That’s Why God Made The Radio.

In 2015, Wilson released his latest solo album No Pier Pressure(Capitol) and was the subject of the critically acclaimed, award-winning biopic Love & Mercy (Roadside Attractions/Lionsgate). Set against the era-defining catalog of the music, the film intimately examines the personal voyage and ultimate salvation of the icon whose success came at extraordinary personal cost. The culmination of these projects produced Wilson’s first Golden Globe nomination for Best Original Song (Motion Picture) for his song “One Kind Of Love” featured in the film.

Brian Wilson is a Kennedy Center Honors recipient, a Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee, and a U.K. Music Hall of Fame inductee. As a member of The Beach Boys, Wilson was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1988 and honored with The Recording Academy’s Lifetime Achievement Award in 2001.
