If you like indie-electronica bands then I have a real winner for you.
Breton is back with their second album 'War Room Stories' and it's quite an ambitious record. Filled with slick beats , cool vocals and ambient textures 'War Room Stories' grabs your attention from the moment you hit play on the first track and never lets go. Loads of fun and outstanding from start to finish. (I even heard some steel drums in there...trust me on this....it's REALLY GOOD!)
Check out the video for 'Got Well Soon'.

Now with a video!
I found this in my in box the other day. As I listened, my jaw hit the floor. The sheer amount of styles and influences in one album blew me away. Not to mention the fact that it is flawlessly executed to boot!
In their own words...
"Wild Rumpus is a rawkus musical mash-up courtesy of producer/DJ Colleen “Cosmo” Murphy and uber-guitarist Gary Lucas.
Cosmo is the world’s leading female audiophile DJ, producer and Cosmodelica radio host, as well as co-founder of new audiophile listening experience Classic Album Sundays and Gary Lucas, “one of the best and most original guitarists in America” (Rolling Stone), played guitar with Captain Beefheart and is a former Jeff Buckley collaborator and co-writer of “Grace” who currently records with his Gods & Monsters outfit.
They are joined by some extraordinary talent including live-looping vocal impresario Beardyman, described by the BBC as the “King of Sound, Ruler of Beats”, Nashville-based Lampchop frontman Kurt Wagner, KLF/Mad Professor multi-instrumentalist Black Steel, Bristolian Queen of visceral country-punk and rockabilly Emily Breeze, Mr. Hermano/Sao Benitez drummer/percussionist Ben Mitchell and MC Brother Culture of Manasseh Hi-Fi and Asian Dub Foundation.
Seriously amazing album. This will easily be in my top 10 for the year!
Here is the video for 'Rock The Joint'.
The album will be out on May 27th. Grab it when it comes out!
Here is the new video for Clarion from San Francisco synth-pop act Symbols Of The West.
I am really looking forward to more form these guys. Really great stuff!!

'Lucid' is the newest release from the very talented guitarist Matt Stevens. His guitar work here is some of the best I have heard in years. I would be amazed if several of these tracks didn't make it on to a movie soundtrack sometime soon.
Noted for his work as both a solo artist and as a member of Fierce and The Dead, “Lucid” sees Matt joined by a host of guest musicians including drummer Pat Mastelotto (King Crimson), Bass guitarists Lorenzo Feliciati (Naked Truth), Charlie Cawood (Knifeworld) and Kev Feazey, keyboard players Jem Godfrey (Frost) and Emmett Elvin (Chrome Hoof / Guapo), violinist Chrissie Caulfield (Helicopter Quartet / Crippled Black Phoenix), vibe player Jon Hart and Nicholas Wyatt Duke (Trojan Horse) on Spoken Word. Truly an all-star cast of performers.
Here is a sample to wet your appetite.
The album has been titled quite well as 'Lucid' means "expressed clearly" and "bright and luminous" and the album is certainly both! Made of the last three years, Matt has put together a album that sucks you in, surrounds you with emotion and really makes you reflect on life, the universe and everything. Well...at least that's what it's done for me. I've been lost in the album all weekend.
Make sure to catch him on tour in the UK!
