Prog Legends Caravan Release “If I was To Fly” the First New Single & Animated Video From It’s None Of Your Business - New Studio Album Out October 15, 2021

Following the announcement from Prog legends Caravan, of their new album It’s None Of Your Business the band have released their first single “If I was To Fly” accompanied by an animated video courtesy of Matt Entecott (https://www.matthewentecott.com )

WATCH / LISTEN TO “IF I WAS TO FLY” FROM CARAVAN HERE

Founding member Pye Hastings comments “Back in 1970 we played a 3 day festival in Rotterdam alongside bands including the Byrds, Santana, Jefferson Airplane, Soft Machine, Pink Floyd plus many more but stuck right in the middle on the 3rd day was Mungo Jerry who played ‘In the Summertime’ - the crowd erupted and they were without doubt the hit of the day!

When I played ‘If I was to Fly’ to the band I said ‘Think, Jug Band’ and because I was so impressed by the power of that simple song at the festival, I wanted to doff my cap to that style of music. The guys in the band are such good musicians that they knew exactly what I was after, and the track was recorded in the first take.”

It’s None Of Your Business, Caravan’s first album since Paradise Filter (2013) is due to be released on CD 15th October (digitally on 8th October) and as a vinyl LP, on 5th November, on Madfish Music. The release features 10 brand new songs including instrumental tracks influenced, to a degree, by the events and restrictions placed on society over the past 18 months and was recorded between 24th June and 4th July 2021 at Rimshot Studio, Bredgar near Sittingbourne.

It’s None Of Your Business overflows with Caravan’s trademark warmth and humour and, also, a sensitivity reflecting the times in which we are living. Sitting among Caravan’s typically whimsical tales “Down From London” and “If I Was To Fly” sit the heartfelt and poignant “Spare A Thought” and “Every Precious Little Thing” which looks forward to a return to normality.

Caravan are one of the doyens of the progressive rock and the ‘Canterbury scene’, formed in 1968 and blending rock, jazz, folk and classical influences into a warm and distinctive sound.

Geoffrey Richardson (viola, mandolin, guitar) first played with Caravan between 1972 and 1981 and returned to the fold in 1995. Their previous 14 studio albums and numerous live recordings have seen them attract a large and faithful following and Caravan toured regularly until the restrictions of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Los Angeles Alt-Rock Band Make Believe Friends Release New Single and Video “The Truth”

Make Believe Friends drops their latest video and single called “The Truth” on Tuesday, July 6, 2021. Mindy Milburn and Laura Espinoza are joined by the talents and amazing skills of Matt Denis & Noel Jasso and produced by Greg Karas.

Make Believe Friends (aka Lunden Reign), is an all original alt-rock band based out of Los Angeles, California. Laura & Mindy have already released 6 singles to critical acclaim.

“‘The Truth’ is filled with lyrically packed intensity matched with a driving bass beat and offset by a wonderfully melodic chorus, delivered by Mindy in a variety of outfits, which is fun to watch.” - Warren Kurtz - Goldmine (Music Magazine)

Watch video here: (Premieres July 5, 8 p.m. Pacific)


About “The Truth” by Make Believe Friends (Lyrics by Mindy Milburn)

“The Truth” is about the moment you realize you are enough exactly how you are, and the empowerment that it brings to be able to speak your mind, question the world around you and confront difficult situations.  And in return you want the same from others around you- for them to be honest, upfront, their true-selves.  

I don't wanna have to play participate in this game, this charade
but either way there's no escape
I don't wanna have to choose or confuse win or lose
I'm my muse and any offer I can refuse

The idea of being comfortable just being ourselves, unentangled from the pressures of modern society gives the opportunity to be as pure and free as the ocean air. It is The Truth.

About the production:

“The Truth” by Make Believe Friends was written by: (lyrics) Mindy Milburn; (music) Gabe Halcovich & Laura Espinoza, Produced by Greg Karas & Laura Espinoza.

“The Truth” lyrics:

I don't wanna have to rush anymore,
take my time, work my style,
make'em smile like never before
I don't wanna have to fake
double take, imitate
make no mistake that I'm gonna even the score
I don't wanna have to play participate in this game this charade
but either way there's no escape
I don't wanna have to choose or confuse win or lose
I'm my muse and any offer I can refuse

Na na, na na na na
Na na, na na na na

All I ever wanted to feel
a touch a breeze
something that's real
all I ever wanted to see
is the truth being handed back to me

I'm not gonna hold my tongue anymore when someone,
Just for fun makes a mess that can't be undone.
I'm not gonna turn away, make believe it's ok,
I'll tell' em straight, call it out when a spade’s a spade.
I don't want to turn my trust into lust I might bust a fake is fake,
but I'm good at hiding disgust.  
I don't wanna make amends play pretend to no end
you're not my friend and you don't care about me in the end.

Na na na na na na
Na na na na na na

All I ever wanted to feel
a touch a breeze
something that's real
all I ever wanted to see
is the truth being handed back to me

Now I know better than ever before,
In life you gotta break down doors
Can't please' em all that's what lessons are for,
Let the truth hurt 'em even more, than your words...

Show me the truth show me the truth?
What is the truth, what is the truth?
Show me the truth....

Italian Composer, Multi-instrumentalist Giancarlo Erra Releases New Single & Video “Previous Tape”

Taken from the forthcoming new album Departure Tapes released on Kscope on July 2, 2021

With his new album Departure Tapes released July 2nd on Kscope, UK based Italian composer, multi-instrumentalist and visual artist Giancarlo Erra has revealed the 3rd single and video for “Previous Tape”. He comments, “Whatever music I write, whether for a soundtrack or for a rock band, for me, songwriting and melody are always something that must be there (I grew up listening to Beatles so I can't escape that!). At the same time I'm not a big fan of solos, but I'm obsessed with vocals, even if synthesised. I own a couple of synths dedicated almost exclusively to that.

So on 'Previous Tape', I used a Seaboard (keyboard/synth) because it allows me to play instruments and sounds without quantised pitch, like a vocal (or a theremin), while at the same time with a dynamically controlled expression of other parameters, exactly like I would while I sing."

WATCH THE VIDEO FOR “PREVIOUS TAPE” HERE

The new studio album Departure Tapes, the follow up to 2019’s Ends I-VII, consists of 6 contemplative recordings, written while travelling between the UK and Italy and reflect the extremely difficult year Giancarlo experienced due to the death of his estranged father. Erra comments “In 2019 my first solo album was just being released, and I already had the view that I wanted to be more experimental with the second one, but no precise idea how at that point. Then my father suddenly got ill with cancer, and everything changed. I found myself taking care of this man, someone who I have been distanced from for so long.  During this time both of us came to terms with many things. I wanted to get closure, but a positive one, for him and for me.

Creatively it was an interesting period for me – writing this album without realising I was actually writing it, as it is so intrinsically linked to one of the hardest and yet more healing parts of my life. The end result is the most experimental, and at the times, the darkest material I have ever written, without compromise or set plan. It contains all the elements of my music in a very unconscious free flowing way.

Departure Tapes sees Erra using a wide mix of analogue synths and digital plugins though he is keen to highlight the unsung hero of many of his albums, “The 1979 monophonic Korg MS10, deserves a mention because this synth has a wicked filter, a squelching and screaming one that can really do some unique stuff once you use it with the modular part of the synth. In Departure Tapes and in possibly all of my albums, any bass synth part is performed on the MS10, and I believe is the one sound I use it for most of the times. Once you manually tune down the synth and then you tune and move the filter at resonant peak around the notes you need, this thing is able to make not just walls shaking bass sounds, but also ones that contain enough upper medium frequencies to cut through the mix: I would be lost without this little gem.”

Max Richter, Olafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm and the more electronic / ambient recordings of Brian Eno may offer a reference point by which to enter Erra’s world, but the depth within his recordings is truly original.

However the trip was fraught with problems after Craig and Adam both realised they had failed to pack a tooth brush. Luckily I was on hand to share mine with them.”

Trifecta, features 3 of the contemporary music scene’s most lauded and revered musicians – bassist and songwriter Nick Beggs, keyboardist extraordinaire Adam Holzman and completing the line-up, Craig Blundell – one of the world’s most celebrated drummers.

Having performed together as part of Steven Wilson’s band, the three would jam together after soundchecks, forming what they referred to as “jazz club” and from these sessions the fledgling ideas for Fragments were born.

The record primarily leans toward a fusion of jazz rock, imaginatively described by Beggs as “Fission! It’s like Fusion but less efficient and more dangerous ..with fall out.” and being mainly instrumental with the exception of one track, the wonderfully titled and first single “Pavlov’s Dog Killed Schrodinger’s Cat”. The lyrics of which, Beggs states “are written from the perspective of a layman trying to understand quantum mechanics…and failing”. The track also features drum programming from Russell Holzman.

Each band member completed the recording and engineering of their own contributions in their various home studios which helped in bringing their individual production ideas to each track. Adam Holzman mixed the record at his New York home studio and the mastering was handled by Andy VanDette (Rush, David Bowie, Deep Purple, Porcupine Tree, Beastie Boys) in New York.

Fragments will be released on 20th August via Kscope on CD, black vinyl LP, ltd edition neon orange vinyl LP (exclusive to www.kscopemusic.com/store) and digitally. Pre-orders are available now HERE (https://TrifectaKscope.lnk.to/Fragments)

Scottish Punk Icons SKIDS Celebrate The Release Of Their New Album, Share Acoustic Performance Video Of “Rock On!”

Los Angeles, CA - The wait is finally over, friends! Veteran punk rock outfit Skids have just released their brand new studio album, a collection of electrifying cover tunes that pays tribute to the band’s hometown venue, the historic Kinema Ballroom in Dunfermline, Scotland. Songs From A Haunted Ballroom offers unique and superbly arranged new versions of tracks by some of the groups that inspired Skids, bands such as The Clash, The Adverts, Ultravox, Sex Pistols, and Magazine. They even turn in a couple supercharged versions of their own early hits “Into The Valley” and “The Saints Are Coming!”

To celebrate the album’s release, the band shares a special acoustic performance video of David Essex classic “Rock On” that originally aired on the band’s April 24 live stream concert. Sure, Essex’s original version is better known for its laid back, too-cool-for-school vibe, but in the hands of vocalist Richard Jobson and guitarist Bruce Watson along with his son Jamie Watson, the song becomes a snarling, percussive anthem that showcases the decades’ worth of rock experience that has honed and shaped this band.

Watch the video: 



Songs From A Haunted Ballroom is now available on both CD in a deluxe 6-panel digipak and in a gatefold jacket with colored vinyl as well as on digital platforms everywhere!

Order the CD & vinyl: https://cleorecs.com/store/?s=skids+songs+from+haunted&post_type=product

Italian Composer, Multi-instrumentalist Giancarlo Erra Releases New Single & Video “A Blues For My Father”

Taken from the forthcoming new album “Departure Tapes” released on Kscope on 2nd July 2021

Having announced his new album “Departure Tapes” and released the first single “Departure Tape”, UK based Italian composer, multi-instrumentalist and visual artist Giancarlo Erra has revealed his next single and video, the moving and poignantly titled “A Blues For My Father”.

Giancarlo explains the song’s touching significance, “After my father’s passing, the mourning brought back the curiosity to go re-look at all the material I wrote during the previous months and I realized I had an album that made a lot of sense. It was dark, experimental for me, confusing but also a discovery, it was a mirror in music of what I was going through. Something was missing, ‘A Blues For My Father” the only track that I wrote once back home, and the mournful yet peaceful closure”.

WATCH THE VIDEO FOR “A BLUES FOR MY FATHER” HERE

The deeply personal video he recalls came about after a visit to his father in hospital, “on this particular visit he seemed unusually happy and excited to show me a DVD”, he recalls. “The footage was from the 1950’s and of his family and childhood, sadly his memory was failing at this point but once we started watching these moments came back to him, the people and the places, he was laughing and genuinely happy. I love this footage as it shows my father with his siblings and is the perfect mirror for the peaceful and warm meaning of this closure, a closure to an album and to many other things.”

The new studio album “Departure Tapes”, the follow up to 2019’s “Ends I-VII”, consists of 6 contemplative recordings, written while travelling between the UK and Italy and reflect the extremely difficult year Giancarlo experienced due to the death of his estranged father. Erra comments, “In 2019 my first solo album was just being released, and I already had the view that I wanted to be more experimental with the second one, but no precise idea how at that point. Then my father suddenly got ill with cancer, and everything changed. I found myself taking care of this man, someone who I have been distanced from for so long. During this time both of us came to terms with many things. I wanted to get closure, but a positive one, for him and for me. Creativity it was an interesting period for me – writing this album without realizing I was actually writing it, as it is so intrinsically linked to one of the hardest and yet more healing parts of my life. The end result is the most experimental, and at the times, the darkest material I have ever written, without compromise or set plan. It contains all the elements of my music in a very unconscious free flowing way.”

“Departure Tapes” sees Erra play and record every instrument himself along with taking on full production responsibilities at his own studio (https://widescreen.studio).

Max Richter, Olafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm and the more electronic/ambient recordings of Brian Eno may offer a reference point by which to enter Erra’s world, but the depth within his recordings is truly original.

DREAM THEATER’S JAMES LABRIE Voices The Role Of Evil Record Executive On New Version Of PINK FLOYD’s “HAVE A CIGAR” From The New STILL WISH YOU WERE HERE - A TRIBUTE TO PINK FLOYD Album!

Album features performances by Rick Wakeman, Ian Paice, Todd Rundgren, Geoff Tate, Joe Satriani, Rod Argent, Steve Stevens, Bootsy Collins, Geoff Downes, Rat Scabies, Jah Wobble and more!

Los Angeles, CA - One of the most iconic characters ever created in song - the smarmy, nefarious record executive dreamt up by Roger Waters for Pink Floyd’s 1975 single “Have A Cigar,” who infamously asked “Which one’s Pink?” - is being brought to life in a whole new way, courtesy of the legendary voice of prog metal superstars Dream Theater, James LaBrie, and a spectacular new concept video from award-winning director Vicente Cordero of Industrialism Films. LaBrie’s superb rendition of the song, taken from the just released album Still Wish You Were Here - A Tribute To Pink Floyd, gives the lyrics a far more sinister edge than the original recording, as does the razor-sharp guitar work from Steve Stevens, which contrasts nicely with the laid-back rhythm section composed of The Damned’s Rat Scabies and Public Image Ltd.’s Jah Wobble and some supremely tasteful keyboard work from The Moody Blues’ Patrick Moraz. This fantastic new version of the song inspired the first-ever dramatic portrayal of this character, performed by seasoned character actor Noel Jason Scott for Cordero’s video, as a stylish Mephistopheles who casually tempts a young, naive musician into a malevolent Faustian bargain that grants him all the riches and rewards of rock superstardom before exacting a treacherous toll.

Watch the video: 

LaBrie’s performance is a major highlight of Still Wish You Were Here but there is plenty more where that came from. The album also features awe-inspiring performances from a whole host of rock, metal & pop music legends such as keyboard wizard Rick Wakeman, Deep Purple drummer Ian Paice, recent Rock Hall of Fame inductee Todd Rundgren, ex-Queensrÿche vocalist Geoff Tate, guitar god Joe Satriani, Zombies/Argent vocalist Rod Argent, spacebass super genius Bootsy Collins, and lots more! Still Wish You Were Here is available on both CD in a beautiful 6-panel deluxe digipak and a stunningly gorgeous gatefold vinyl in a variety of colors!

Order the album: https://orcd.co/still_wish_you_were

Track List:
1. Shine On You Crazy Diamond (Parts 1-5) - Geoff Tate, Steve Hackett, Billy Sheehan, Mel Collins, Geoff Downes, Ian Paice
2. Welcome To The Machine - Todd Rundgren, Rick Wakeman, Tony Levin
3. Have A Cigar - James LaBrie, Steve Stevens, Patrick Moraz, Rat Scabies, Jah Wobble
4. Wish You Were Here - Rik Emmett, Joe Satriani, Edgar Froese, David Ellefson, Carmine Appice
5. Shine On You Crazy Diamond (Parts 6-9) - Rod Argent, Steve Hillage, Ian Paice, Bootsy Collins
