Leyla previously played at the Winter Jazz Fest in NYC, and will return to the New Orleans Jazz Fest for an appearance in May. Leyla also just completed her maiden voyage to SXSW.

Bobby Sessions Releases New EP “RVLTN-Chapter 2: The Art Of Resistance”

“Bobby Sessions has a lot to say and it’s often about the condition of Black America. With an elastic flow and impassioned lyrics, the 20-something Dallas native acts as a self-contained Black Lives Matter rally as he channels the anger and despair that accompany the cycle of systematic racism.” –XXL

“Sessions is not afraid of the reactions that may come from those who feel the content is too much. It’s an audacious attempt but in a genre that glorifies the money and clout, the message that Sessions is spreading is a much needed statement.” – BILLBOARD

“Sessions confronts racism with a captivating flow that’s both acrimonious and awe-inspiring.” –NPR Music

Revolutionary Dallas rapper Bobby Sessions–the firebrand Def Jam MC hot off the title track from the buzzworthy film and soundtrack The Hate U Give–drops his second EP RVLTN-Chapter 2: The Art Of Resistance via Def Jam Recordings.

The Art of Renaissance follows RVLTN-Chapter 1: The Divided States of AmeriKKKa (released in July), Sessions’ debut EP, which included his first two Def Jam single and video releases of earlier this year, “Like Me” and “Pick A Side.” With hard-hitting production on The Art of Resistance PicnicTyme, Audio Anthem, and RC Williams, Sessions’ aggressive, authentic, soulful sound harkens back to the roots and origins of classic hip-hop.

On The Art of Resistance, Sessions continues to rip open the ongoing oppression of African-Americans in our society sand gets to the root of race issues in our country. Throughout both EPs, he has worked toward his self-possessed goal of “taking the politically incorrect conversations from the barbershop and expressing them through music.”

“My RVLTN EP series,” Sessions has said, “is about taking the politically incorrect conversations from the barbershop and expressing them through music.” He went on to explain that Chapter 1 highlights the root of race issues in this country. It addresses while supremacy, systematic oppression, as well as introspective realizations about the responsibility of becoming a leader. RVLTN will continue to unfold and evolve throughout upcoming chapters in my quest for viable solutions, black empowerment, and justice.

In October-November, Sessions was part of the powerful roster of next-generation Def Jam stars–also including Beau Young Prince, Casanova, DaniLeigh, Fetty Luciano, and YK Osiris–presented by Def Jam Recordings in collaboration with DTLR VILLA and Levi Strauss & Co., on DTLR’s 5th annual HBCU tour of Historically Black Colleges and Universities.

RVLTN–Chapter 2: The Art of Resistance track list;

  1. On Your Face
  2. Same Oh
  3. Material Lies
  4. Gold Shackles (Interlude)
  5. Dirt On Your Trophies
  6. Lights featuring ZYAH

 

About Bobby Sessions:

On December 31, 2014, Bobby Sessions quit his job to pursue his dream of becoming a recording artist full-time. Exactly one year later, he released his debut indie album the Law of Attraction (LOA), a passionate and fiery project influenced by the artists he grew up on as a kid from Dallas, Texas–from Jay-Z to James Brown to N.E.R.D. The hunger he has for motivating people through his words can’t be ignored: it’s in each and every song, interview, and performance. A blistering, concentrated lyricist and speaker, Sessions is constantly focused and determined to attract the energy of those around him–whether onstage performing for fans or in the studio focused on his craft. LOA was followed by a second album, grateful, a jazzy, self-aware reminder to be thankful. “Every freedom, every privilege, every great thing happening in our lives, down to your eyesight, each breath…we should put 100% of our energy into being grateful for that,” Sessions said.

His 2018 signing to Def Jam Recordings, and the arrival of “Like Me” and “Pick A Side” early in the year, set the stage for RVLTN-Chapter 1: The Divided States of AmeriKKKa (released in July), and RVLTN-Chapter 2: The Art Of Resistance (November).

LORD HURON, VIDE NOIR:

“cinematic”

Vide Noir adds touches of garage-rock distortion to a narrative of love and fortune found, inspired by classic pulp fiction writers like Raymond Chandler and illuminated by a mysterious emerald glow. It’s the spookiest entry yet in a growing catalog of the atmospheric, the melodic, and the arcane.”

“They evolved into an expansive festival-folk juggernaut that will take their fizzy

and fuzzy upcoming third LP, the Dave Fridmann-mixed Vide Noir, to a large outdoor amphitheater near you.”

“More than ever before, it sounds like Lord Huron had the ambition and the confidence to take their sound to all kinds of new places, with no rules, and no concern for what anyone expects Lord Huron to sound like.”

“The tracks are robust and muscular, hitting on the tune-fulness and warm

melodies that fans of the band would expect, but sounding more ready than ever for the big stages that they will be playing.”

NEW ALBIN LEE MUSIC + VIDEO

Albin Lee Meldau‘s ‘The Weight Is Gone‘ is an arresting new soul-soaked dance-pop song that signals a striking new creative direction from an emerging artist to watch in 2018. Over a Ronson-like mashup of beats and sweeping strings with stabs of reverb-heavy guitar Albin’s unforgettable voice soars, confessing how love can sometimes feel like a curse. The Weight Is Gone is the first single from Albin’s forthcoming debut album due out this summer on Astralwerks.

Astralwerks has also released the 3-track The Weight Is Gone (Remixes) EP featuring remixes by KC Lights. The remixes have already earned support from some of the world’s biggest tastemaker DJs including Tiesto and Danny Howard, as well as from festival mainstays Kryder, CID, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano.

Few singers can command an audience’s attention quite like Albin Lee Meldau,

his voice is breathtaking, soulful, thunderous and impossible to ignore

NPR Music

Albin has already proven himself to be a powerful storyteller on deeply affecting songs such as Same Boat, Bloodshot, Lou Lou. First and foremost, He considers himself a musical journalist who not only documents what he feels, but also what he sees. But before you discover his gift for weaving emotion, detail, and humanity into a unique blend of classic soul and modern pop production, you will hear his voice and be bowled over.

2018 is shaping up to be a breakthrough year for Albin, a singer-songwriter who hails from Gothenburg, Sweden, the son of a Swedish jazz singer mom and a British punk rocker dad. His debut album follows two impressive EPs that have already notched 30 million streams on Spotify. Last year he made his debut at SXSW and Bonnaroo, and NPR Music invited him to perform on their popular Tiny Desk Concert series. Albin was nominated for Best Newcomer at the 2017 Grammis (Sweden’s Grammy Awards) and won the 2016 Anchor Award, an international competition hosted by the Reeperbahn Festival in Germany that seeks out the best new emerging talent. He was selected by a jury that included producer Tony Visconti (David Bowie) who sang Albin’s praises in presenting him the award. Something is pouring out of his heart and soul when he sings.

RETROGRADE

 

“A perfectly balanced duo. They both have incredible skills. They both have wonderful voices. The harmonies are fabulous. And they play the heck out of the guitar…” – NPR Music

Capitol Records will release Retrograde, the new EP from Striking Matches, on February 9. The EP’s title track and “Desire” are selections from the band’s upcoming full-length album, due out later this year. The collection also includes the duo’s compelling version of Buffalo Springfield’s classic protest song, “For What It’s Worth.”

 

Striking Matches will join Phillip Phillips on the first leg of The Magnetic Tour. The North American run will include a two-night stand at The Sinclair in Cambridge, MA (February 14 & 15), a February 18 show at Irving Plaza in New York City and a concert at 3rd and Lindsley in Nashville on February 25. Tickets can be purchased at http://www.strikingmatches.com/#/tour

 

The duo – comprising Sarah Zimmermann and Justin Davis – recently made its Sundance Film Festival debut, performing at the ASCAP Music Café. The pair was also featured on the NFL’s “Heart of the Game” webseries.

 

After releasing the Shameless EP onCapitol Recordslast fall, Striking Matches toured North America and Europe with JOHNNYSWIM. The Tampa Bay Times said, “Striking Matches are both an amazing acoustic songwriting duo and a pair of bluesy electrifying performers…Their voices vibrantly bounce off each other to fun harmonies, most notably in ‘Medicine,’ a song that got the crowd singing along almost immediately.”

 

Watch Striking Matches perform “Medicine” live from Capitol Studios in Hollywood in this video.

Shameless, which was produced by Kennedy Karate (Børns), follows the duo’s 2015 debut album, Nothing But The Silence, which has racked up more than 10 million cumulative streams worldwide.

 

Nothing But The Silence, which was produced by T Bone Burnett,won acclaim in the U.S. and abroad. NPR’s “World Café” hailed Striking Matches as an “Artist to Watch” andBuzzfeednamed the duo as one of the “Artists You Need In Your Life.” USA Today said, “Sarah Zimmermann and Justin Davis give off sparks as singers and writers, but they’re even hotter guitarists. Incendiary.” American Songwriter observed, “these songs crackle and sizzle.” Nothing But The Silence debuted at No. 1 on the iTunes UK Country Chart and several tracks were featured on BBC Radio 2’s playlist.

 

Zimmermann grew up outside Philadelphia, and mastered the guitar, clarinet and violin before middle school. Davis, who is from Atlanta, began playing guitar at an early age. A professor at Belmont University in Nashville paired them up for class projects, and they soon started writing together. Nine of their songs were performed in the first four seasons of the hit television show “Nashville.” In addition to numerous headline outings, Striking Matches have opened for Train and toured the U.S. with The Secret Sisters on a co-headline tour.

The Roots: Tiny Desk Concert

Grammy award winning and multi-platinum hip hop icons The Roots star in the latest installment of NPR Music’s Tiny Desk Concert Series. Check it out HERE.

The band performed their hit “It Ain’t Fair” from the critically acclaimed motion picture “DETROIT”. “‘It Ain’t Fair’ was designed to emphasize the importance of social justice through the prism of late-sixties Detroit, which means many things culturally and politically, and also certain things musically. Music has the power to express both anguish and hope,” explains The Roots drummer and producer Questlove.

From Kathryn Bigelow, two-time Academy Award®- winning director of THE HURT LOCKER and ZERO DARK THIRTY, and Annapurna Pictures, DETROIT captures one of the most terrifying events during the riots that took place over five tumultuous summer days in 1967. The DETROIT Original Motion Picture Soundtrack captures light amidst one of America’s darkest times by illuminating the power at the heart of the Motown, Detroit, and late sixties cultures all at once. It’s the sound of change in the face of oppression and a moment of revolution brought to life in song and on screen.

GLASS ANIMALS LAUNCH NORTH AMERICAN HEADLINE TOUR TOMORROW AT SEATTLE’S WAMU THEATER

Run Will Include September 21 Show At Los Angeles’ Shrine Auditorium And October 5 Concert At NYC’s Radio City Music Hall

How To Be A Human Being Shortlisted For UK’s Mercury Prize

Band Will Perform At Austin City Limits Festival On October 14

Glass Animals will launch their third North American headline tour of 2017 tomorrow, September 16, at Seattle’s WaMu Theater. The run includes a show at Los Angeles’ historic Shrine Auditorium (September 21) and the band’s first concert at Radio City Music Hall in New York City (October 5). Additional East Coast dates include shows at Agganis Arena in Boston (October 7) and the 9:30 Club in Washington, DC (October 8 & 9). Glass Animals will cap off the outing with a performance at Austin City Limits Festival on October 14. See below for itinerary. Tickets are available at http://glassanimals.eu/.

The band, which was shortlisted for the 2017 Mercury Prize, continues to pull out all the stops during its live performances. DIY Magazine, reviewing a 2017 show in London, said, “From the second frontman Dave Bayley bounds on stage with limitless energy, Brixton Academy is theirs, and the Oxford quartet proceed to give it one hell of a party.” The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette noted, “[the] band has honed its act at all the major festivals — Coachella, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Glastonbury, etc. — and it showed in the high energy that began as soon as it hit the stage with ‘Life Itself,’ the percussive dance track that opens the new, second album, ‘How to Be a Human Being.'”

A broken ankle couldn’t keep Bayley from crowd surfing during the band’s main stage set at Coachella, cited as a festival highlight by Billboard, which praised Glass Animals’ “dynamic rendition” of “Gooey.” In July, a storm briefly interrupted their sold-out show at Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre, but the band returned to the stage and got the crowd dancing again. Local NBC affiliate 9 News observed, “You always take the risk of rain or shine at Red Rocks, but Glass Animals made it worth every drop.” Their riveting live shows have contributed to Glass Animals’ incredible global growth, resulting in sold-out excursions throughout the U.K., Europe and Australia.  

Glass Animals are touring in support of How To Be A Human Being (Harvest Records), which debuted in the Top 20 of the Billboard 200 and topped the iTunes Alternative Albums chart in the U.S. and Australia. The album introduced fans to a diverse group of fictional characters, inspired by real people the band encountered while on tour. Glass Animals have continued to bring these characters to life with interactive sites for “Life Itself,””Youth” and “Pork Soda,” as well as a video game app for “Season 2 Episode 3.

 

The single “Agnes” has over 10 million streams on Spotify worldwide. The official video, directed by Eoin Glaister, and can be seen HERE. Track “Pork Soda” has upwards of 13 million Spotify streams, and the official video, which can be seen HERE, has more than one million views. NPR Music placed “Life Itself” on its list of “Songs We Love” while “Youth” appeared on their “10 Songs Public Radio Can’t Stop Playing” list. How To Be A Human Being is the follow-up to Glass Animals’ 2014 debut, ZABA, which contained the hits “Gooey” and “Black Mambo.”

On the heels of their debut performance in Nashville, Bermuda Triangle has announced a series of Southern shows. The trio – comprising Brittany Howard, Becca Mancari and Jesse Lafser – will kick off the jaunt on October 4 at Terminal West in Atlanta. Special guests Thelma and the Sleaze will support on the first two dates and Music Band will open at the other three shows. See below for itinerary.Tickets go on sale today at noon ET.

Today, NPR Music premiered “Rosey,” Bermuda Triangle’s debut song. “Rosey,” which features Lafser on lead vocals, is now up for streaming HERE.

In this featureNPR neatly summed up the individual accomplishments of the band mates: “Brittany A. Howard, the main rule-breaker in Americana music’s most exciting band of this century, the Alabama Shakes…[joins forces] with two of the most interesting voices currently making Nashville home. Hailing from St. Louis, Lafser has released two albums of lonesome tunes redolent of Jimmie Rodgers and Patsy Cline. Mancari…is one of the subtlest songwriters and bandleaders to hit the scene in a while, building intense moods in her memorable live sets.”

Covering Bermuda Triangle’s debut performance, Rolling Stone said the trio’s chemistry “was clear from the first-applause-silencing note” and went on to observe, “The band featured Howard switching between plucking out gorgeous, nimble-fingered nylon-string guitar solos and holding down the low end on upright bass…with Mancari and Lafser trading off on banjo and acoustic guitar, accompanied by subtle beats from a drum machine on a pitch-perfect harmony-heavy set of blithe and breezy heartfelt folk tunes that filled the sweltering room with chill vibes.” 

The artists have also been busy with their individual endeavors. Becca Mancari’s debut album, Good Woman, is set for release on October 6Jesse Lafser’sfollow-up to 2015’s Raised On the Plains is due out in early 2018. Brittany Howard recently wrapped a series of headline and festival dates with Alabama Shakes.
