NEW MUSIC: Rob Bravery, Fight Like Apes, Gorgeous Bully, Orchidée Noire, Idea the Artist


Rob Bravery - “Me, Myself and the Scurvy Knave”

Rob-BraveryRob Bravery, a singer songwriter from Bristol, England has been described as "what a Massive Attack song with Michael Jackson would have sounded like,” one of those seemingly overcooked comparisons that actually makes sense when you hear the songs in question.

Bravery's previous single “Knock Out Ginger” backs the description up in spades with its gloomy atmospheric beats and crystal clear vocals.

His latest track “Me, Myself and the Scurvy Knave” maintains something of the glitchiness but gravitates towards a more recognizable indie pop almost-ballad style art pop that at times recalls Radiohead and the art pop of Marc Almond and Anthony and the Johnsons.




Fight Like Apes – “Pretty Keen On Centerfolds”

Fight Like Apes (above) - a Dublin, Ireland-based electro punk act reduced from four members to a duo since their last album - have been a mainstay of the Dublin live scene since their debut 2008 album which featured brilliant breakout work-unfriendly track "Jake Summers".

Just out is “Pretty Keen On Centerfolds”, the first track from their new album which is due in May.

Have a listen to "Pretty Keen On Centerfolds" which is accompanied by the official video for "Jake Summers."

Frank Ocean Reveals New Album ‘Boys Don’t Cry’ and Release Date In Tumblr Post


R&B singer Frank Ocean posted images of himself deciding between what appears to be two album covers to his Tumblr account along with the hashtags #Issue1, #ALBUM3, #JULY2015 and #BOYSDONTCRY revealing the title and release window of his third full-length album yesterday reports Spin.

Ocean captioned the two images saying, "I got two versions. I got twooo (sic) versions…" indicating that he is in the final processes of picking an official cover for the album. Ocean has remained particularly mum about the details of his new album except for releasing a demo snippet of a new song called Memrise in November 2014.

Ocean explored homoromantic subject matter in the songs Pink Matter and Forrest Gump on his previous album Channel Orange, leading news outlets and music journalists to speculate on the singer’s sexual orientation. Ocean later confirmed in an open letter, which was originally intended for the liner notes of Channel Orange, published on his Tumblr page affirming that his first love was with a man. Few details exist concerning Ocean’s new album Boys Don’t Cry, but the title may indicate that the singer may continue to explore these themes further.

Madonna Teases Eerie 'Ghosttown' Video: WATCH


Madonna teased this week's premiere of the video for "Ghosttown" with a 16-second clip on music streaming service TIDAL. The full clip is set to debut tomorrow on live streaming app Meerkat.

The clip, which is obscured by a murky filter and accompanied by foreboding noises like sirens and a beating heart, shows a woman (likely to be Madge herself) running through a black-and-white landscape in a long coat, garters, and clutching a top hat.

There's also at least one wolf or wild dog and a burning crucifix (of course).

Asif Kapadia Hints At Unreleased Music In Winehouse Documentary 'Amy': WATCH


British filmmaker Asif Kapadia is reportedly in possession a large amount of never before released footage and demo tracks with Amy Winehouse.

Island Records released Amy Winehouse’s final, posthumous album Lioness: Hidden Treasures five months after her death in 2011. Since then there’s been little in the way of previously unreleased content from her. That may be changing soon. British filmmaker Asif Kapadia is currently working on Amy, an eponymously named documentary about the famously troubled soul singer. In addition to sit down interviews with friends and loved ones Kapadia says that his doc will feature “extensive unseen archive footage and previously unheard tracks.”

“A once-in-a-generation talent and a pure jazz artist in the most authentic sense, Amy wrote and sung from the heart using her musical gifts to analyse her own problems,” he said of his film subject. “The combination of her raw honesty and supreme talent resulted in some of the most original and adored songs of the modern era.”

Kapadia has yet to announce a release date, but the film’s first teaser trailer has just been released and it’s uncanny just how prescient a younger Winehouse was about what a monster fame would ultimately become for her.

“I don’t think I’m going to be at all famous,” she says. “I don’t think I could handle it. I would probably go mad.”
