Ty Segall – Fanny (Aagoo Records 16 November 2018)

Ty Segall to release ‘Fanny’ vinyl edition to benefit animal rescue organizations

Aagoo Records is proud to announce the release of ‘Fanny’, the new 7″ single from prolific rocker Ty Segall. Now based in Los Angeles, the 31-year-old noisemaker previously lived in San Francisco and Laguna Beach. ‘Fanny’ is a psychedelic ode to his dog, available on standard 7” and picture disc editions.

Not only does Segall’s single feature various cover and insert art painted by Segall himself, but also the track comes in three different forms: the demo, a revved-up “sketch” and a live recording from San Diego, California.

Each side of the picture disc features a yellow dog face painted by Segall, from his acrylic painting ‘Goopy Poodle’. Stare at it long enough and you’ll find it’s oddly comforting!

This ‘Fanny’ 7” is for a canine cause: all proceeds will go to the animal rescue organizations NKLA and Mighty Mutts, which are dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating the strays of Los Angeles and New York. It’s a tribute to our canine friends that only Segall could make.

Ever prolific, Ty Segall also just released his new ‘Fudge Sandwich’ LP, his fourth full-length this year, following ‘Freedom’s Goblin’, his collaborative effort with White Fence, and the latest record under his GØGGS name.

Scheduled to release on November 16, this vinyl can already be ordered from Aagoo Records at http://aagoo.com/ty-segall-fanny

Segall is currently in the midst of a solo acoustic tour, in which he is showcasing deep cuts and live rarities from U.S. coast to coast. He is joined on select dates by Nashville guitar virtuoso William Tyler and Freedom Band staple Emmett Kelly.

Polly Panic – Losing Form (Write Hook Records 20 November 2018)

Rasputina’s Polly Panic announces new ‘Losing Form’ album

Cello-shredding rock siren Polly Panic is back with her third studio album ‘Losing Form’, to be released on CD and digitally via Write Hook Records on November 20. This is Polly Panic’s first album in six years, following ‘Fragment’ (2012) and ‘Painkiller’ (2006).

Polly Panic is Jenette Mackie, who wrote and recorded the 10 songs comprising this album in 2016-2017, sandwiching the process around time spent rehearsing and touring both coasts with her cello-driven band Rasputina, founded by Melora Creager and formerly including Zoë Keating and Julia Kent.

Arguably the best Polly Panic album yet, this also represents a turning point for this artist, having joined forces with Write Hook Records on the heels of touring as part of Rasputina. Inspired by PJ Harvey, Tom Waits, Tori Amos and Nirvana, this is cello-driven art rock with intense, powerful vocals and lyrics that take center stage.

Driven by a nucleus of cello, drums and vocals, these tunes are woven from tales of lustful obsession (‘Side Piece’), co-dependent addiction (‘Losing Form’), joy in realizing you don’t need who and what you thought you needed (‘Hollows’), and a scorned lover’s lethal revenge (the anthemic rocker ‘Annie’, an ode to Annie Oakley and to women everywhere who live life and experience love on their own terms).

Polly Panic’s uniquely dark and theatrical chamber rock has a sound that’s much larger than one would expect from just one vocalist playing a cello along with a drummer.

“I knew the cello could be everything. Of all the instruments, the cello is closest to the human voice and its capacity for expressing emotion is unparalleled. It was the most fierce and yet the softest most sorrowful instrument I had ever heard,” says Polly Panic.

“This album represents the strength to march on, being inspired by self-examination and reason for existence.”

Indeed Polly Panic herself had gone through massive challenges to continue with her art, from constant touring and getting sober to label changes and childbirth. Every step of the way has defined her to find that Polly Panic was not just something she did… It was who she is.

On ‘Losing Form’, Polly Panic got a helping hand from recording engineer Stephen Shoenecker at the Heritage Music studio in Bristol, Tennessee, studio drummer Ryan Rasnake, and mastering engineer Seva (Corrosion of Conformity) at Soundcurrent Mastering.

‘Losing Form’ will be available in stores as of release day and can be ordered digitally via Bandcamp. CDs be purchased in advance at Polly Panic’s live show and pre-ordered via the artist’s website.

Polly Panic is currently touring the East Coast to promote this album, together with drummer Caleb Beissart, spreading the gospel of the southern-gothic high priestess of cello rock.

Noctorum (Marty Willson-Piper) – A Girl With No Love (Schoolkids Records 24 October 2018)

Marty Willson-Piper announces new Noctorum album ‘The Afterlife’, previews ‘A Girl With No Love’

Noctorum have announced they will be releasing their fourth album ‘The Afterlife’ through Schoolkids RecordsThis is the duo’s first long-play in seven years. It will be released exclusively on CD and gatefold vinyl to PledgeMusic contributors in November 2018. The general release of this album will happen in February 2019.

Noctorum is guitarist/singer-songwriter Marty Willson-Piper and producer Dare MasonNamed for the village Noctorum, located near to their childhood homes on The Wirral (near Liverpool), Dare and Marty liked its association with night and its Latin derivation. This collaboration has an eclectic focus, making the quiet loud and vice-versa, singing words that might be spoken and playing indoor instruments that should be heard outside. It has to be imagined to exist.

Ahead of the album’s release, they present the first single ‘A Girl With No Love’. Comical in its despair, the song explores the emotions of and options against physical loneliness in a world where, surrounded with many choices, people can find themselves not only alone with their thoughts, but with the incessant pressing pain of nature’s physical needs. In removing complicated social etiquette, compromise, personality, the perceived trouble involved and the cost, this one-time expense might adequately satisfy that nature in a world where communication skills, empathy and love are lost in a lonely room full of blind sentient beings unable to connect or trust, who are either doomed or blessed to an eternity of fantasy.

Having formed in 2002, Noctorum released their debut album Sparks Lane’ on Heyday Records in 2003. In 2006, they followed up with the album ‘Offer The Light’ on that same label, later re-releasing it as a digipak in 2010 via Second Motion Records. Heyday released their third album ‘Honey Mink Forever’ in 2011.

Marty Willson-Piper has been writing and performing internationally for over 35 years. He is best known as a long-time member of Australian psychedelic rock band The Church, who he was with from its inception through to 2013. He joined All About Eve in the ’90s, releasing two studio albums and several live albums with them. He is also lead singer and lyricist with Swedish band MOAT and a touring member of Swedish Prog legends Anekdoten. Since the mid-1980s, Willson-Piper has maintained a steady solo output, releasing six solo studio albums and three live solo albums to date. He has also co-written music with many artists, including Grace Slick, Aimee Mann, Susannah Hoffs and Linda Perry.

As a house engineer at London’s world famous Townhouse Studios, Dare Mason has worked with the likes of Prince, Paul McCartney, Boy George, Tina Turner, Ravi Shankar and Soul II Soul, among others. After becoming a freelance producer/engineer in 1991, he produced albums for The Grid, The Church, Placebo and AC Acoustics, working in London, New York, Sydney and Stockholm. He finally moved to Cornwall, where he set up the VIP Lounge studio in 2001. Nowadays, Dare is mainly known as a mixing engineer, having mixed recordings by Brix Smith (ex The Fall), Cinerama and Tommy Tokyo. Dare is also a composer, songwriter and accomplished guitarist, singer and dabbler in keyboards, usually contributing musically to the artists he produces.

As of October 24, ‘A Girl With No Love’ will be available across online stores and streaming platforms. The full album ‘The Afterlife’ album can already be ordered via PledgeMusic.

The Adarna prepare to release a brand new album

Taking their name from a mythical phoenix-like songbird in Filipino folklore, The Adarna [pronounced uh-darn-uh] are the first band to ever coin their genre as “Jet City Rock,” due to their proximity to Seattle’s Boeing Field.

Five years out of the gate and The Adarna recently completed their 7th national tour titled the Dollars & Dignity Tour, which includes their performance at one of the largest hard rock festival in North America– Rocklahoma. The band has been touring relentlessly in support of their most recent album, How Perceptive. Appearing locally at Boeing’s 100th Anniversary celebration, Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon, Lakefair Festival, Burning Man Events, Rockout ALS Fests, and Wounded Warrior Benefits. This high energy group is not shy to co-align themselves with movements and organizations they believe in.

The Seattle Weekly suggests that The Adarna are “melodic, polished, and destined for rock radio.” The band has been featured on MTV, Myx TV, M&L TV and about 230+ media outlets/radio worldwide including Fox stations, Sirius XM, Armed Forces Radio, and Harley-Davidson retail with music videos aired in 78 countries. Their first single, “Honestly”, aired to an audience of 10 million households on MYX TV, one of the largest Asian-American networks (ABS-CBN). The band earned this opportunity by being voted into the top 6 finalist.

Their single, “Superman,” gained much success in anime and comic fandom. This resulted in the placement of the song in a new superhero video game by Risen Phoenix Studios as well as earning nominations for Best Music Video at the Fanboy Film Festival, Atlanta Film Festival, Tirana International Film Festival, and Los Angeles Philippine Film Festival.

This fiery, dynamic, and high-energy sound comes from a concoction of influences from old school rock-n-roll such as The Cult and Guns N Roses to modern rock such as Foo Fighters, Sick Puppies, Halestorm, Queens of the Stoneage, and Muse. They’ve shared stages with names like Art of Dying, The Guessing Game, Smile Empty Soul, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Windowpane, The Slants, Bobaflex, The Cliks, The Crying Spell and Burning Daylight (Lords of Acid, Powerman 5000, Cage 9 & Ministry).

Tastes Like Rock Magazine states The Adarna are “rising stars of modern rock who will find their way to the top of the heap of bands out there, so make sure you keep an eye out for them. Whether you are hard core rockers or alt or punk or even dance pop, you will love The Adarna.”

Lionize – Nuclear Soul (The End Records, September 2017)

Lionize is a four piece hard rock band from Maryland that put out their fifth album in September 2017.

Their previous album “Jetpack Soundtrack” was produced by Jean-Paul Gaster, the drummer of Clutch and was released through Weathermaker Music, the record label that Clutch put together.

This is not the only connection to their fellow Maryland natives though.

The album opens with the charging Hammond Organ of Chris Brooks on “Darkest Timeline”, with the instrument adding a strong flavor to the personality of the band in general.

But the band is more than just a hard rock outfit.

They show their groovy side in tracks like “Election Year” and “Power Grid Blues”, they add a reggae comment with the “Mad Scientist of Sunshine”, they have the anthemic “Nuclear Soul” and the two great Blues tracks “Ain’t that a Shame” and “Let You Down”.

In the 11 tracks of “Nuclear Soul” there are lots of music styles, all of them making this album great and giving the listener some good time.
