Kraftwerk's Karl Bartos Announces Second Solo Album 'Off the Record'

Former Kraftwerk member Karl Bartos has announced that he will release his second solo album "Off the record" on March 18th via Bureau B.

The follow up to his 2003 album 'Communication', features 12 tracks that were taken from song ideas he wrote during Kraftwerk's heyday (he kept a secret acoustic diary and jotted down ideas while on the road).

Bartos is calling these tracks "iron crystal music," which refers to the iron crystal cell-shaped Atomium building that was built for the 1958 Brussels World’s Fair. This new form of music encompasses a bevy of sounds, specifically "vocoder newspeak, robot sounds, digital glitch, techno pop, catchy melodies, electronic avant-garde, roaring silence, futurism, and, of course, those rhythms!".

Here's a first taste from Off The Record, the first track "Atomium":



Check the tracklisting for "Off The Record" below.

01. Atomium
02. Nachtfahrt
03. International Velvet
04. Without A Trace Of Emotion
05. The Binary Code
06. Musica Ex Machina
07. The Tuning Of The World
08. Instant Bayreuth
09. Vox Humana
10. Rhythmus
11. Silence
12. Hausmusik

The Drums frontman Jonny Pierce has announced that he will release his solo album debut, written, recorded and produced by himself, early next year.

"Some might say it's strange for a man to bare his soul the way I do on this album but I wanted to do something that exposed me for who I am even more so than anything I have done with The Drums ... I wanted to be as self-indulgent as possible with this album. This is pop done the way I think it should be done." Says Pierce about the album.

He has also released the video for his new song "I Didn't Realise", watch it below.



That's all the information we have so far, we'll keep you updated.

Jane's Addiction To Record New Album Early Next Year

Jane's Addiction frontman Perry Farrell has revealed he has over 60 songs ready to take into the studio with the band early next year.

"I haven’t written this much or been this prolific since I started when I was in my 20s," Farrell has told Rolling Stone.

"It's been coming out fantastic. I’m super excited. Everything will really start to gel and come together probably this time next year."

Farrell also spoke of his intention to put distance from the sound of their 2011 record 'The Great Escape Artist'.

"It didn’t make a big enough splash," he continued. "It’s not going to be ‘The Great Escape Artist’. I had thought that it would be a great idea. However, I just came up with this other twist to doing the next record. At this point I want to start fresh with a fresh angle."

Album of the Week 19/11: City Riots "Sea Of Bright Lights"

Australian indie four-piece City Riots have been around for a few years now, and after 2 EPs and some singles, the band have finally released their awaited debut album "Sea of Bright Lights".

Comprised by Ricky (vox/guitar), Matthew "Edgy" (vox/guitar), Matt (bass) and Dan (drums), City Riots describe their sound as "dreamy, jangle indie rock" and with 'Sea of Bright Lights', which was written and recorded in less than six months, they have delivered a consistent debut full-length album.

Our first taste of the album came with its amazing lead single "Wait for You", which has been a favourite in our playlist since we first heard it back in July and it will be for sure in the top 10 of our Best Tracks of 2012.

Following the line of its lead single (Wait for You), each track on the album has the perfect balance between indie rock and dream pop. Let's say they have created the perfect sounds for summer days on the beach. 

We highly recommend this one, so get your copy HERE right now! We give it a 8/10.

Tracklisting:

1. Turn
2. Catch The Sun
3. In This Space
4. Wait For You
5. Closer
6. Sucker Punch
7. Take You There
8. Lonely Hearts
9. Back To Normal
10. Pirates
11. It's Been a Long Time

Kevin Shield has confirmed that My Bloody Valentine will release their long awaited follow-up to 1991's Loveless on his own website before the end of the year.

Shield has also confirmed he will follow that release with another EP of brand new material.

Talking about the sound of the new material in a recent interview, Shield said: "I think with this record, people who like us will immediately connect with something. Based on the very, very few people who’ve heard stuff – some engineers, the band, and that’s about it – some people think it’s stranger than 'Loveless'. I don’t. I feel like it really frees us up, and in the bigger picture it’s 100 per cent necessary."

THE NOVEMBER FIVE - Band on the Month November 2012

London-based rock'n'rollers The November Five have just released their debut album, "If You're Satisfied You Are Dead",  a passionate and furious riposte to the spurious notion that we should "Keep Calm and Carry On".

In an age where the good are turned bad and the blameless are demonised, these are anthems for the austerity that tackle head-on the desperate and savage times we find ourselves in.

Inspired as much by the sound of your neighbours arguing at 3 o'clock in the morning and the wailing of sirens and the crashing of doors in a dawn raid as they are by their musical heroes, The November Five create a rock'n'roll noise that's made when MENSA collides headlong into ASBO.

Comprise by Joe Cribbin (Vox/Bass), Chris Maciejewski (Guitars and Keyboards), Julian Marszalek (Guitars and Vox) and George Phillips (Drums and Percussion), The November Five are as mad as hell and are asking the right questions. And they want you to get mad, too. Because if you’re satisfied… well, we all know the answer to that one.

The November Five's first two singles, 'Closure' and 'Awake in a Daze', received international radio support from stations as varied as Kool Rock Radio,  BBC 6 Music, Xfm, Radio 1, LA’s KROQ and others across Europe and South America. "If You’re Satisfied You Are Dead" delivers on their promise.

The album was co-produced by The November Five and Brian O’Shaughnessy whose previous production credits include Go-Kart Mozart, Primal Scream and My Bloody Valentine. 

"If You're Satisfied You Are Dead", will be out on November 5, 2012. You can pre-order your copy right now on eBay or iTunes.


**The November Five reached the TOP 20 on Kool Rock Radio's Best New Bands of 2006 list. Their single 'Breathe' peaked at #14 on our Best Tracks 2006 and 'Closure' peaked at #37 on our Best Tracks 2008 chart.

"If you like the incendiary music of The MC5, The Stooges, The Birthday Party, Jim Jones Revue or The Cramps then you will not be disappointed in the slightest." Shindig magazine

"The November Five combine the driving sneer of Earl Brutus, some of the atmospherics of the Arcade Fire if they weren't twig-stroking Canadians, and some very British bombast - in The November Five's hands, guitars do, very much, squall." The Quietus

“The November Five are gathering momentum and things are only going to get bigger.” Vive Le Rock
