Tami Neilson - Don't Be Afraid
Tami Neilson
Don't Be Afraid
LP | 2016 | US | Original (Outside Music)
24,99 €*
Release:2016 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
"It's the most personal album I've ever written, and it is very daunting to put such a raw, exposed, vulnerable part of yourself out there," remarks Tami Neilson of her new album Don't Be Afraid. Don't Be Afraid was nearly left unfinished. With two songs completed and six weeks left to write Tami Neilson unexpectedly lost her father, the patriarch of The Neilson Family band who Tami had toured across Canada with as a young girl opening for the likes of Johnny Cash. It was with her mother and brother's encouragement that she finished the record as a way of honouring her dad. "I actually inadvertently wrote the title track (without realizing it would be for the album) the week Dad died. 'Don't Be Afraid' was the last song Dad wrote, while in the hospital. He had written the melody, lyrics and everything, but he was on oxygen and could barely breathe to speak. He told me that it was driving him crazy that he had this new song stuck in his head, but had no way of offloading it. It's an awful feeling, I know, so I said I would bring him in his guitar so he could play it and I'd record it on my phone. He did a verse, so I got the melody, but then his levels dropped dramatically (that's the hidden track on the album, Dad's Demo'), but we didn't get the chorus, or the melody for the chorus." Don't Be Afraid finds the soul taking precedence over the country as Tami found herself listening to a lot of gospel around the time of her father's death and finding a kinship with the legendary singer Mavis Staples: "I've always been a massive Staples fan. I had ordered the new Pops album, it was released days before Dad died, and I ordered it in Canada so I could take it into the hospital for him to listen to. It arrived the day after he died, and of course I sobbed about that, but I will always be so grateful for that album helping me get through that grieving process." Recorded in Ben Edwards' New Zealand Sitting Room studio, the songs were again recorded live, the musicians all in the room playing together. The album features Delaney Davidson and all the boys that were on Dynamite! including harmonies from Marlon Williams on the soon-to-be classic 'Lonely'. The album features a Tina Turner throwback, 'Holy Moses', the swinging country of 'Only Tears', a bluesy swagger in `So Far Away' and the southern soul of 'Burn My Body'. The album is bookended by the title track, including the haunting hidden demo track sung by Tami's father. "There are a lot of reasons I chose Don't Be Afraid as the title, and one of them is that, musically, as an artist it's a departure for me. There are definite moments where I have had to go, 'Don't be afraid of this, this is who you are,- Neilson says. "This album is the guts of me. I guess 'departure' is the wrong word because it's all the same palette and same family, but whereas Dynamite! was a lot of light, bright colours, Don't Be Afraid is deeper, richer colours - still in that same family but a different level." Tami moved to New Zealand from Canada 8 years ago and has become one of the country's biggest acts. Tami is the most highly awarded artist of any genre in New Zealand, having just picked up NZ's highest songwriting honour, the APRA Silver Scroll, for 'Walk (Back To Your Arms)' off 2014's Dynamite!, which also won her (yet another) Best Country Album Tui in May this year. Don't Be Afraid marks Tami as a new soul staple. It's a raw, deep and hopeful album that finds Tami singing out her grief. "Last year was an insane year, I had the highest of the highs and the lowest of the lows all in one year," she recalls. "And I guess that is what the album is, it reflects that constant cycle of life."
Folly & The Hunter - Remains
Folly & The Hunter
LP | 2018 | US | Original (Outside Music)
24,99 €*
Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Montreal duo Folly & the Hunter has returned from hiatus with fresh energy, bearing a captivating and polished set of sophisticated, cinematic indie-pop. Folly & the Hunter is formed by seasoned members of Montreals Indie community, multi-instrumentalist Laurie Torres (Rae Spoon, Little Scream, Land of Talk) and bassist/vocalist Nick Vallee. Their striking melodies and tightly woven rhythms come together to immediately strike the ear. Their magnetic sound has made them a favourite among music supervisors, with placements in the Melissa McCarthy show Nobodies; ABC Family drama The Fosters; Saving Hope; Cracked; MTVs Awkward; Teen Mom; Rookie Blue; Private Eyes; Netflix Switched at Birth; Degrassi :The Next Generation; and Heartland, hooking thousands of new fans and earning over a million plays on Spotify, hundreds of thousands of Youtube hits and Apple music streams. Their last album, Awake, saw them touring with Half Moon Run and dates with James Vincent McMorrow. The revitalized band has returned, bringing with them a high energy set of unforgettable indie hooks with a more electronic sound palette. Their lead single, Remain is the track that catalyzed their new upbeat feel. Organically grown out of an improvisation, experimenting with grittier sounds and more driving rhythms, 'Remain' moved the group past the stylistic constraints of their previous work.
Beliefs - Habitat
LP | 2017 | US | Original (Outside Music)
24,99 €*
Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Seven years and two well-regarded LPs on from the band's initial formation during a fit of shared affection between co-founders Jesse Crowe and Josh Korody for the swirling overdrive of '80s-into-'90s noise-pop, Beliefs is poised to explode most of the well beliefs you might already harbour about Beliefs with a third album that completely deconstructs, remakes and remodels its self-conscious "shoegazer" beginnings in pursuit of an unforgiving, uncompromising and now thoroughly unknowable Next Phase.

Fool's Gold
LP | 2015 | CA | Original (Outside Music)
15,99 €*
Release:2015 / CA – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
“My greatest hope is that it ends up becoming the soundtrack to some perfect romance, or at the very least a great cocktail party,” says Jill Barber of her new album, ‘Fool’s Gold,’ out February 9th via Outside Music. Jill - aka “Canada’s sweetheart” - is a two-time Juno Award nominee and Montreal Jazz Fest headliner whose last album hit #1 on the iTunes Jazz charts, and landed her a national segment with NPR. She has collaborated with Josh Ritter, Ron Sexsmith, and Kris Kristofferson has called her a “damn good songwriter.” She also published a children’s book, entitled ‘Music is for Everyone,’ this May. ‘Fool’s Gold’ explores every nook of Jill’s musical history: sultry torch songs, Hank Williams-inspired ballads, an homage to the golden era of the Brill Building, Motown and beyond. Lead single “Broken For Good” ventures into the early days of Motown with its strong backbeat, horns, a driving bass line and immediate pop appeal. She channels Patsy Cline on “The Careless One,” a bittersweet Western, full of resignation and sorrow. As Jill puts it, “It hurts me to sing it, just a little. But that’s how I know it is a keeper.” The record was produced in Toronto by longtime collaborators and bandmates Les Cooper and Drew Jurecka.
