Video premiere: Jubilee Street – Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds

jubilee_street

Today the new video Jubilee Street from Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds was released, as alwyas it is interesting. It is in fact very good, both the song and the video.

The  new album Push The Sky Away is only a couple of weeks away (February 19th) and we have gotten some very promising tastes from the album. Really looking forward to see them in Norway this summer.

The video is directed by John Hillcoat (Lawless, Proposition) and it is very cinematic, both in the images and the storytelling. Great video!

…and, oh yeah, Ray Winstone plays the lead character in the video.

Look out for: Holly Williams

Holly williams 2

Ok, she is not new in the game, she has released two (good) albums before, but there haven’t been enough people paying attention. She’s a great artist.

In a couple of days (5 Feb), her new album will be released. It is called The Highway and she is releasing it independently, and she describes it as a new beginning. It will be released on Holly’s own label, Georgiana Records.

Her first single off the record is Drinkin’, what a wonderful song!

Holly Williams  was born March 12, 1981 she is the granddaughter of Hank Williams Sr., the daughter of Hank Williams, Jr. and half-sister of country singer Hank Williams III.

Here are even more tracks from Holly Williams via the excellent Noisetrade website:

“It’s all about the songwriting for me. I still love songs that I wrote when I was 17. I was always attracted to the heavier stuff and the real stories that painted a very clear picture for you in your head. Tom Waits songs read like little movies in my head, and I hope listeners always walk away feeling like I’ve taken them somewhere. That desire has remained the same through and through.”

Video of the day: Naomi Shelton & The Gospel Queens – What have you done

naomi-band-photo

Bergenfest has booked this fantastic act from Daptone Records to play on Saturday the 15th of June 2013. This is gonna be a great show, We’re really looking forward to see these fabulous soul/gospel women.

Naomi Shelton is no ordinary gospel singer. Though she, like many others, grew up singing with her sisters in their Alabama church, she has also spent much of her life in the soul clubs around New York. Now, with her first official full-length release released in May 2012, it’s clear that her singing is equally influenced by both facets of her life.

This is soul music – informed by the church, perhaps, but soul music nonetheless, relatable to all. Which means that What Have You Done, My Brother?, an uplifting record that conveys Naomi’s energy, her excitement, her love of music, her compassion, is no ordinary album.
