Esperame is a story of patience for an ambitious lover who is emotionally unavailable but does feel for the one trying to love them. Esperame tells this story in a bottle with a single verse and varying choruses/refrains to appeal to a broader audience whose first language may not be English or English spoken at all. Esperame focuses on emotional intent and rhythm over everything else. The inspiration for Esperame came about when attempting to truly catering to Shadow the ArchAngel's growing global fan base; it was hard. He lacked the means to perform and tour in the areas where he built a buzz. So he would build up momement with them and couldn't keep it due to his lost of pace because of situational restrains. This song is a letter of patience to his fans that he will be traveling to them soon.

The music video to Esperame is scheduled to be filmed in Paris, France February 11 – February 19 2019; at locations like the Bir Hakeim Bridge from Inception.

Esperame is a precursor to a grander body of work that will included Shadow The ArchAngel traveling to the countries where his fans showed the most support and shooting a music video to immortalize his self with the countries in art to be proud of. Places like Argentina, Colombia, Kenya, Philippines, Germany, United Kingdom should expect to see Shadow the ArchAngel the reviver of romance.

The rumors are true:  The “rejected” electronic album that Stephen Malkmus has been telling everyone about will see the light of day on March 15th, when it’s released on Matador Records.  But Groove Denied is not a full-blown plunge into EDM or hiptronica.  In fact, there aren’t any purely instrumental tracks on the album.  Every song is precisely that: a song, featuring Malkmus staples like an artfully askew melody and an oblique lyric.  Groove Denied is Stephen playing hooky from his customary way of going about things, jolting himself out of a comfy routine. As Malkmus commented recently in a recent video interview, “It’s kind of funny to mess with stuff you’re not supposed to mess with.”


The first taste of Stephen’s new groove can be sampled today, with the release of single “Viktor Borgia,” and its accompanying video starring Stephen alone in a dance club — until he turns into a digital avatar and dance-battles the digital avatars of a Random Businessman and a pony-tailed pop-star named Ariana.  Watch HERE and download GIFs HERE.


The title playfully merges the name of the comedian-pianist and the ruthless dynasty of Italo-Spanish nobles. With its stately melody and the almost-English-accented vocal, the coordinates here are early Human League or even Men Without Hats. “Yes, I was thinking things like Pete Shelley’s ‘Homosapien’, the Human League, and DIY synth music circa 1982,” says Stephen, adding “and also about how in the New Wave Eighties, these suburban 18-and-over dance clubs were where all the freaks would meet – a sanctuary.”


Stephen will embark on a solo tour, sans Jicks, in May.  The newly announced run of dates can be found below.  The full Simon Reynolds-penned bio can be read HERE.




When Stephen Malkmus first arrived on the scene in the early Nineties, as frontman and prime creative force in Pavement, the area of music with which he was associated couldn’t really have been further from the techno-rave sounds of the day. Electronic dance music, then as now, was about posthuman precision, inorganic textures, and hyper-digital clarity. Whereas the lo-fi movement in underground rock championed a messthetic of sloppiness, rough edges, and raw warmth – a hundred exquisitely subtle shades of distortion and abrasion.


Fast forward to the present and here comes Malkmus with Groove Denied – Stephen’s first solo album without his cohorts the Jicks since 2001.  Made using Ableton’s Live, instead of a human-powered rhythm section, Malkmus’s arsenal further included drum machines, along with a host of plug-in FX and “soft synths.” He compares the process of track-construction to the way his kids “used to make these girls on my iPhone – choosing hair colour, dresses, etc. That intuitive swipe and grab thing. Chop and move the waves. Apple computer scroll style of thinking.”


This departure from the tried-and-tested stems back to earlier in this decade, when Malkmus spent a couple of years living in Berlin and was exposed to the city’s vibrant club scene. Back in the Nineties, Stephen had given rave culture a wide berth, in part because of bad personal associations with the drug MDMA (he’d had “a really really bad trip” on Ecstasy in 1987, bizarrely on a visit to New York to see Miles Davis perform). But in Berlin, thanks to a younger deejay friend, Malkmus made forays into the city’s world-famous all-night party scene and became fascinated by techno. “The music can be great… you can zone out, dance, and focus on music – or just get wasted!”


It would not be entirely off-base, or an overly cute rock-historical reference, to describe Groove Denied as Stephen Malkmus’s Low. Although largely recorded in Oregon, the bulk of the album was written while he was living in Berlin. And whilst the methodology behind Groove Denied is absolutely 21st Century, the reference points for the sound-palette hark back to the pre-digital era. “The electronic music side of the album, I wanted it to be sonically pre-Internet,” explains Stephen.


Groove Denied will shake up settled notions of what Malkmus is about and what he’s capable of, repositioning him in the scheme of things. But looking at it from a different angle, his engagement with state-of-art digital tech actually makes perfect sense. After all, Nineties lo-fi – the sound in which he and Pavement were initially vaunted as leaders and pioneers – was nothing if not insistently sonic – it was all about the grain of guitar textures, about gratuitously over-done treatments and ear-grabbing effects. Noise for noise’s sake


As Stephen tweeted recently on the subject of Auto-Tune’s omnipresence in contemporary music-making: “We long 4 transformation….and we humans fucking luv tools.”

Story Behind the Song, GREATER
Written by Laura Kaczor
Produced by Ian Eskelin

GREATER was written as a prayer to the Lord asking Him to "BECOME GREATER" in me. As we surrender our lives to the Lord Jesus Christ, our prayer is the same as John the Baptist in John 3:30, "He must increase and I must decrease."  "Jesus, Savior become GREATER." The more our spirits are yielded to Him, He will do what we cannot do ourselves. Jesus will live in us as we surrender every area of our lives. This has been one area at a time for me. That is sanctification. But it is a daily walk to lay down our lives, "Every dream, I lay it down until your will alone is all that's found. Take my life, take all of me, until more of You is what I seek."

I also want to reflect on Proverbs 18:21, "Death and life are in the power of our tongue."  "When I speak, be in EVERY word and may my life reveal you to the world. Let your praise be always on my lips, Jesus Savior become GREATER." This is not just on Sunday, it is every day and in every word, and yes, even on social media and in the hidden times when we speak to people. We can speak life or death by our words. Our only hope is, "Christ in me, the hope of glory." Col. 1:27.  Only when people see Him in us will they listen to our words about Him. May we all be convicted that the world is watching and that our witness depends upon our daily acts of love and kindness and serving others and every word that we speak.

Betty Bryant has a long and storied career as a pianist, composer, and singer. Besides performing regularly around Los Angeles to packed houses, Bryant is releasing PROJECT 88, her ninth CD. The title is a double entendre, since the piano has 88 keys and Bryant turned 88 a year ago. The album features a mix of standards and originals penned by Bryant. Saxophonist and flutist, Robert Kyle, who produced this project, bestowed the sobriquet “Cool Miss B” on Bryant because of her cool demeanor and the swinging, bluesy style that she developed in her early years in her hometown of Kansas City, MO. A mainstay on the Southern California jazz scene, The “Betty Bryant Birthday Bash” in Hollywood has become a hugely popular annual event. She’s performed internationally and spent 13 years shuttling back and forth to Tokyo for a regular gig. She’s also performed in Brazil, Panama, and the Middle East. Betty Bryant lives and breathes music. It’s why she keeps a busy schedule playing and recording year after year. Despite her age, she hasn’t missed a beat. Rather, her singing and playing show the depth and assurance that come when inborn talent is enhanced by great experience.

"La Plume De Ma Tante"


Vaudeville Smash continue their ongoing musical evolution, teaming up with Nashville’s Grammy Award winning producer, Bobby Holland.

Directed and edited (in his directorial debut) by frontman, Marc Lucchesi.


Watch Vaudeville Smash – La Plume De Ma Tante




“I’ll be damned if Vaudeville Smash aren’t the most mind-blowingly refreshing live act to emerge from Melbourne since God knows when.” – Beat Magazine.

Made up of three brothers and two mates, no other Australian band sounds like ’em. An explosion of funk, flute, sax, synth and groove, the dance floor is packed at a Vaudeville Smash show.

Since their first gig at Fitzroy’s Bar Open in September 2009, Vaudeville Smash have carved their own niche, building a formidable following in their hometown of Melbourne, Australia and around the world. Their international adventures have seen them tour Japan on three occasions, play the South by South West conference in Austin, Texas, twice, and grace stages in New York, Singapore and Toronto, Canada.

Vaudeville Smash's catalogue features 2 full length albums, 3 EPs and an international sensation with their song, 'Zinedine Zidane' featuring the late, great Les Murray. The single has became a viral hit, garnering over 11 million YouTube views, and was featured in some of the biggest publications on the planet, including Billboard, ESPN, Eurosport and the BBC.

New music from Philadelphia alt-rockers

PRESAGES "Surrender"

Philly alt-rock outfit Presages is one of the newest additions to the scene, and they’ve already made a lasting first impression with the sweeping new single “Surrender.” The band was founded by frontman and guitarist Angel Ocana, who also plays drums in local hip-hop collective 'Hardwork Movement', earlier this year. The four-piece also includes Justin Leggio on drums, Albert Collazo on bass and Molly White on piano and vocals. 

Recorded and mixed at Philly’s Miner Street Recordings, “Surrender” tackles heavy themes with remarkable grace — “I’ll see you in the darkest place of my heart / Where you ripped a hole inside me,” Ocana sings, backed by richly polished instrumentals that replace feelings of toxicity with the a welcoming sheen. Reached via email, Ocana shared that the song is about “coming to the realization that even though you love someone it doesn’t mean they’re right for you.” “The song also hints at political aspects as well. Brainwashing media, television garbage and the current president situation. Sometimes you just wanna wash it all away.”

It's with much excitement that Mountain Fever Records releases Amanda Cook's newest single, "Good Enough (Ain't Good Enough)".

The song was written by acclaimed German-born and Nashville-based songwriter, Thomm Jutz; beloved Nashville star, Andrea Zonn, who can often be found on stage playing fiddle and singing back-up vocals with James Taylor; and the talented singer, songwriter, and mandolinist, Sierra Hull.

One might ask why such gifted writers and clever business persons would allow another artist to record a beautiful song like this, but the answer is clear: Amanda Cook delivers this heart-wrenching and often too true tale of love turned cold with perfection. Her emotion is raw and captivating.

Check out the music video:

Amanda has a busy schedule ahead of her as she promotes her soon-to-be-released album, Point Of No Return. Her tour includes a stop at Nashville's Station Inn and a tour in Australia with label mate, Kristy Cox.

"Shelter Of Love" 


January 18, 2019



Josh Gilbert returns with a new song "Shelter Of Love", after his first releases "Separate Us", as well as "Holy Spirit Come" both garnered Billboard Soft A/C Radio play, with Soncured Records. The new song is on a new EP Release "Outside The City", featuring his band (Josh Gilbert Band).   "Shelter Of Love" is inspired by a true story about how God spared Josh and his band and touring van a few years back, when a tornado outbreak happened in Tennessee.  

"I wrote this song shortly after the tornados came through Chattanooga, TN area several years ago; and a tree smashed right through the center of our van as it was parked after a tour!  I and my band at the time had been touring and playing music across the country, and we didn't have much to our name outside of that van and our musical gear.  I was tempted to give up playing music all together at that time — but the Lord allowed me to step into a new season of trust and letting Him shape my character.  And it's been ever since then that He has led me on a journey to keep singing, for He always has a plan when ours falls short.  God will always use even the broken things — us — for His glory.  It's in those storms that we can find out who (or what) we really build our lives on!  Lord, may You always be the SHELTER and STRENGTH in my life — no matter what comes my way!"

“Shelter Of Love” has a release date for radio of January 18, 2019 for radio and is available on all major music platforms including iTunes, Google Play, Spotify, and Amazon.  The song was produced in Orlando, FL by Josh Gilbert & Keagan Fowler of E Studio (JOSHGILBERTMUSIC.COM)

Josh Gilbert is a Christian Singer-Songwriter & Band, with a sound drawing from Americana music and a variety of genres. Josh’s influences can be placed somewhere along Adult Contemporary Acts such as Phil Wickham, NeedToBreathe, Zach Williams & Jeremy Riddle; and even mainstream acts such as U2, & Johnnyswim. Hailing originally from TN, he has been touring and performing nationally and internationally for over 12 years, across the U.S. and Canada – with over 1,000 performances. The Josh Gilbert Band members have included a network of friends, family & working musicians through the years — all having a passion for the ministry to encourage people in their walk with the Lord, as well as reach the lost. "We write music – uncompromisingly – to share a testimony and the Gospel, to anyone who would listen. We often perform for not just churches and Christian events, but also secular stages as well, as we have a desire to share the Gospel with the 'un-churched'. Today's church culture has a growing movement of Musical Worship — yet, worship, to me, is not just confined to times when we sing together, or in a Church building — worship is a lifestyle; a constant communication and offering to be one with God in all things we do, leaving nothing out. Our hope (my music team and I) is that the world would see Christ not only in our music, but in our lives of worship and be drawn to the Savior."
