Oct-24-19 08:00 PM Ruston Kelly with Donovan Woods
Ruston Kellys highly anticipated full-length debut, Dying Star, will be released September 7 on Rounder Records and is now available for pre-order. In advance of the release, the albums lead track, Jericho, is premiering today. Watch/share the official music video HERE.Dying Star was co-produced by Kelly and Jarrad K (Kate Nash, Weezer) and recorded at Sonic Ranch in El Paso, TX. It includes 14 songs written/co-written by Kelly and features Kelly (lead vocals, acoustic guitar, xylophone, harmonica), Jarrad K (12-string guitar, background vocals, electric guitar, Rhodes), Tim Kelly (pedal steel), Ian Fitchuk (piano, organ, drums, percussion), Eli Beaird (bass) and Kyle Ryan (banjo) as well as background vocals from Jon Green, Natalie Hemby, Kacey Musgraves, Kate York, Abby Sevigny and Joy Williams.Of the album, Kelly comments, A lot of my music is focused on suffering, or trying to understand the human condition through the lens of sufferingwhich probably sounds totally depressing, but its actually the flipside of that. Sometimes youve gotta go into that darknessyou need to get lost and then figure out for yourself how to find your way back. Thats the only way we can find pure joy, and really be thankful for the life weve been given.The release of Dying Star follows a breakout year for the Nashville-based artist, whose debut EP, Halloween, was released last April to widespread acclaim. Of the music, Rolling Stone praised, shows a powerful grasp on storytelling gleaned from his love of the Carter Family and Townes Van Zandt, but also a more ragged rock & roll soul: its Americana, if your Americana is Bruce Springsteen with an acoustic guitar, sung by someone who spins a little heavy metal too, while the HuffPost declared, simultaneously current and effortlessly timeless.Born in South Carolina, Kelly started playing guitar under the guidance of his dad, Tim TK Kelly, a pedal steel guitarist who now performs in his band. Since his father worked for a paper mill and often changed job locations, Kelly grew up frequently moving, living everywhere from Alabama to Belgium, including time in Michiganwhere the young one-time figure skater went to train with an Olympic coach in the hope of furthering his career, and where he first began writing songs. At 17, he moved toNashville to live with his sister and went on to land a publishing deal with BMG Nashville, placing songs with several high-profile artists.
Oct-25-19 08:00 PM Yoke Lore with EXES
A yoke is something that holds things together. Lore means a set of stories or a collection of ideas about an event, time, or culture, explains Adrian Galvin, when asked about the meaning behind his musical moniker Yoke Lore. New York indie pop project Yoke Lore is the solo musical venture of Adrian Galvin, previously of Yellerkin and Walk the Moon. Yoke Lore layers the harmonies of Panda Bear, the soulful beats of M83, and the modern pop of Blackbird to tell the stories of how we are bound. Galvins songs combine echoing waves of banjo, vocals, and percussion to create arresting pop music with tactile candor and conviction. Galvin continues, I want to tell stories about how memories, relationships, apprehensions, and big dreams hold us together. I think that exploring universal experiences both emotional and spiritual are best conveyed through the potency of personal stories. And music wields a power to render the very personal, epic. After putting out three acclaimed EPs which gained him a loyal following -- Far Shore (2016), Goodpain (2017), and Absolutes (2018) -- 2019s Meditations strips several of Galvins familiar songs to their core by trading the usual electronic elements for arrangements of piano, horns, and strings. In re-interpreting it, I wanted to clear out everything but the song itself, so that people to whom it means something can glean a more refined experience of the song itself. Clear out the clutter, unburden yourself, Galvin explains of Beige (unburdened), the reimagined version of his song Beige from the Goodpain EP. In addition to these re-interpretations, listeners will also find two new studio songs on the new Meditations EP.2017, the year the Goodpain EP was released, was a turning point for Yoke Lore. His stand-out single Goodpain roused fans old and new -- including Spotify, who invited Galvin to their New York City studio to record an acoustic version of the track, as well as two covers for his Spotify Singles: Last Christmas by Wham! and Truly Madly Deeply by Savage Garden. His holiday song graced Spotifys Holiday Singles playlist alongside covers by Demi Lovato, Sam Smith, and Miley Cyrus. Yoke Lore also found an unexpected new fan in popstar Taylor Swift, who added his cover of Truly Madly Deeply to her Songs Taylor Loves Spotify playlist in 2018.Three years of non-stop touring (supporting acts like Bastille, LP, Frenship, Overcoats, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, and Aquilo) and playing festivals worldwide (SXSW, The Great Escape, Field Trip, Billboard Hot 100) led to Yoke Lores first US headline tours, selling out shows all over the country. In 2019, Yoke Lore will make appearances at BottleRock Napa Valley and Firefly Festival, following an east coast headline run and some European dates as well.The new acoustic EP, Meditations, is due out June 2019.
