Mdou Moctar
Mdou Moctar

Mdou Moctar immediately stands out as one of the most innovative artists in contemporary Saharan music. His unconventional interpretations of Tuareg guitar have pushed him to the forefront of a crowded scene. Back home, he’s celebrated for his original compositions and verbose poetry, an original creator in a genre defined by cover bands. In the exterior, where Saharan rock has become one of the continents biggest musical exports, he’s earned a name for himself with his guitar moves. Mdou shreds with a relentless and frenetic energy that utterly sets him apart. Mdou Moctar hails from a small village in central Niger in a remote region steeped in religious tradition. Growing up in an area where secular music was all but prohibited, he taught himself to play on a homemade guitar cobbled together out of wood. It was years before he found a “real” guitar and taught himself to play in secret. His immediately became a star amongst the village youth. In 2008, Mdou traveled to Nigeria to record his debut album of spacey autotune, drum machine, and synthesizer. The album became a viral hit on the mp3 networks of West Africa, and was later released on the compilation Music from Saharan Cellphones. In 2013, he released Afelan, compiled from field recordings of his performances recorded in his village. Then he shifted gears, producing and starring in the first Tuareg language film, a remake of Prince’s Purple Rain (Rain the Color Blue with a Little Red in It). Finally, in 2017, he created a solo folk album, Sousoume Tamachek, a mellow blissed out recording evoking the calm desert soundscape. Without a band present, he played every instrument on the record. “I am a very curious person and I want to push Tuareg music far,” he says. 2019 brings his first recorded in a proper studio - Ilana (The Creator), out Mar. 29th on Sahel Sounds. He has shared the first single, “Kamane Tarhanin,” and has announced spring tour dates in support of the new record. A long time coming, Ilana is Mdou’s first true studio album with a live band. Recorded in Detroit at the tail end of a US tour by engineer Chris Koltay (the two met after bonding over ZZ Top’s Tres Hombres), the band lived in the studio for a week, playing into the early hours. Mdou was accompanied by an all-star band: Ahmoudou Madassane’s (Les Filles de Illighadad) lighting fast rhythm guitar, Aboubacar Mazawadje’s machine gun drums, and Michael Coltun’s structured low-end bass. The album was driven by lots of spontaneity – Mdou’s preferred method of creation – jumping into action whenever inspiration struck. The resulting tracks were brought back to Niger to add final production: additional guitar solos, overdubs of traditional percussion, and a general ambiance of Agadez wedding vibes. The result is Mdou’s most ambitious record to date. Ilana takes the tradition laid out by the founders into hyperdrive, pushing Tuareg guitar into an ever louder and blistering direction. For Mdou, his style is to draw on both modern and traditional sources and combine elements into new forms. In “Ilana” Mdou reaches back into Tuareg folklore for inspiration, riffing on the hypnotic loops of takamba griots, or borrowing vocal patterns from polyphonic nomad songs, and combining them with his signature guitar. You can hear the effect in tracks like “Kamane Tarhanin,” where a call and response lyric lifts up over a traditional vocal hum before breaking into a wailing solo with tapping techniques learned from watching Youtube videos of Eddie Van Halen. As Mdou travels the world, he divides his time between two places, alternating from lavish weddings in Agadez to sold out concerts in Berlin nightclubs. It offers a unique perspective, but also means that he needs to address different audiences. At home, his compositions send a message to his people. Abroad, his music is an opportunity to be heard and represent his people on a world stage.

Nightly with THE WLDLFE
Nightly

The music of Nashville band Nightly is made for moody introspection, for late-night daydreaming or driving with no real destination in mind. With their heart-on-sleeve lyrics and impassioned brand of alt-pop, each track feels as private as a secret and cathartic as confession. And in their sing-along-heavy live show—a highly visual event that adds new color and detail to the Nightly aesthetic—those songs take on a strangely unifying power, turning personal heartache into a shared experience. On Nightly’s forthcoming third EP, singer Jonathan Capeci, guitarist Joey Beretta, and drummer Nicholas Sainato build off the dreamy urgency first glimpsed in their 2016 breakthrough hit “xo.” But while Nightly mostly created their first two EPs in bedrooms and home studios, their latest effort was recorded at the legendary House of Blues Studios in Nashville—a world-class facility that pushed the band toward a more fully realized and unpredictable sound than ever before. On the EP’s lead single “No Call, No Reply,” Nightly bring their more finely honed vision to an unrequited-love song that’s cinematic in scope. Conceived as a sister song to “No Vacancy”—a cut from their 2016 EP Honest—the track mirrors its predecessor’s arpeggiated synth pattern but finds Capeci’s soulful vocals perfectly channeling the pain of romantic angst. “‘No Vacancy’ was about not being in the right mental space to dedicate the time that a relationship requires, but this song is about me being on the other end of that experience, and sort of hung out to dry,” says Capeci. At the same time, “No Call, No Reply” reveals the band’s experimental side in its unearthly vocal effects. “Usually when we’re writing a song, I like to freestyle melodies until I land on something I like,” says Capeci. “We ended up leaving those freestyles in for this song and Auto-Tuning them, which gave it a different feeling.” On “Twenty Something,” meanwhile, Nightly shift into a much brighter and more hopeful mood. “A lot of our songs are about love lost, but this song’s more about sticking with someone through hard times, and how the things that connect us are stronger than the things that can tear us apart,” says Capeci. Opening on a moment of stark intensity, “Twenty Something” ultimately turns epic, unfolding in sprawling guitar tones, luminous textures, and flashes of delicate falsetto. In co-producing the EP with their longtime collaborator Keith Varon, Nightly instilled their songs with a sonic depth the band partly attributes to their more grandiose recording environment. With several of the tracks written in the studio, they also tapped into their powerful chemistry while pursuing a more deliberate approach to songcraft. “These songs came from us all being in the room together and figuring out the vibe, and from there I’d go sit down at this grand piano and really concentrate on what I wanted to say with the song,” says Capeci. “I think it helps create something stronger if you strip away all the other elements, and just completely focus on lyrics and melody.” As Capeci points out, Nightly have long brought a certain contemplative quality to their creative process. “With songs we’ve done in the past, I’d go up to the rooftop of our apartment complex and sort of pace around singing stuff into my phone, writing down the lines as they came to me,” he notes. Formed as a duo in 2015, Nightly initially sprang from a near-lifelong musical partnership between Capeci and Beretta—Pennsylvania-bred cousins who bought matching Fender Squier Stratocasters as kids. Soon after moving to Nashville, the two came up with “xo” and uploaded the bittersweet breakup anthem to their SoundCloud page. “We figured that, as a no-name band putting something out on our own, it would be a huge feat to get 100,000 plays in a month,” Capeci recalls. Instead, “xo” surpassed that number nearly overnight and hit a million plays within weeks. In addition to earning massive attention online, the song quickly led to Nightly’s signing with Interscope Records. Along with releasing Honest and their 2018 sophomore EP The Sound of Your Voice, Nightly have spent much of the past few years on the road, touring with artists like The Night Game, The Struts, and K.Flay as well as completing their first-ever headlining tour and making their debut appearances in the U.K. True to their DIY sensibilities, the band recently collaborated with an artist friend to create a series of videos specifically tailored to accompany each song in their live set, an element they debuted on their headlining run. “It’s really exciting that the first time a lot of our fans get to see us live, they’re experiencing the show exactly the way we envisioned it,” says Capeci. With their name translating as ’night, love you in textspeak, Nightly continually achieve an undeniable intimacy with the crowd, and make a point of meeting with audience members after every show. Often leaving the venue with gifts of flowers and artwork lovingly made by their fans, the band sees that kinship as an extension of the emotional exchange at the heart of their music. “At one show a while ago, there was a kid who told us how—even though how there’s a sad feeling to a lot of our songs—there’s something about them that’s healing,” says Capeci. “That was such a cool thing to hear, because making music’s like therapy to me. We just try to write about things that are real to us, and it means so much to know that could somehow help other people with whatever they’re going through in their own lives.”

Landon Cube
Landon Cube: The Orange Tour

There’s a poignant yet feel-good vibe that makes 21-year-old recording artist Landon Cube’s sound infectious. The Southern Maryland native has a diverse history within music, punctuated by his versatile catalog. As Landon readies the release of his upcoming single “Makeup,” the young star on the rise is geared to level up to the next chapter in his career. “When I write a song, I don’t go for a specific genre,” explains Landon. Raised in the small 500-person town of Pomfret, Maryland, Landon spent his days skateboarding through his suburb while tinkering with music very early on. “I started singing when I was about eight years old, but I wasn’t so sure of my voice,” he says with a laugh. It was his father, a career musician, who heard Landon singing one day and urged him to pursue music. Landon would frequently watch his father perform as both a keyboardist and guitarist, learning some tips along the way. In middle school, Landon fronted a small band while recording his own songs on the side using his father’s home studio equipment. By his teens he was performing with his father in the Washington, D.C. circuit, covering Top 100 songs from the likes of Maroon 5, Bruno Mars, and John Mayer. “It was my first exposure performing in front of people,” he says. “It’s kind of what developed my singing voice.” Raised on his father’s favorite music of Stevie Wonder, The Doors, and Prince plus his own favorites including Warped Tour bands and Lil Wayne, Landon struck a balance once hip-hop evolved. “My interest in music was everywhere, which kind of describes my music,” he adds, “but when rap became more melodic, that’s when it all made sense to me.” At 16, he made the firm decision that music was his chosen trajectory and once he graduated high school, he dropped his introductory cut “Euphoria.” His participation with local viral video crew Cufboys added fuel to the fire, as Landon began galvanizing a fan base through his laid back authenticity and knack for melding sounds. His cut “18” showed his growth, as the young artist details his mindset at the milestone age. “After 18, I told my fans I was going to do a song for every age after that to best describe that year of my life,” Landon explains. He delivered on that promise with “19” and “20,” respectively. Through Cufboys he met burgeoning star Lil Skies, as the two joined forces on cuts like “Red Roses” and “Nowadays,” the former impressively hitting one million streams in less than a month. It wasn’t long before Landon was Los Angeles bound and continued his upward mobility as an artist. “I was working on a lot of music and it was getting better and I realized I wanted stronger backing,” he says, then independent at the time. “A lot of people had this misconception that I was signed to Atlantic but I wasn’t.” He ultimately joined the Republic Records roster and is preparing for the release of his six-song debut EP. When Landon Cube makes music, it not only reaches his fans, but it also speaks to him. His single “Makeup” is a testament to that. The woozy cut is packed with emotion as Landon coos, “Your silence speaks as loud as my screams.” It’s a direct reflection of how Landon felt at the moment he penned the soon to be hit. “I had been living in LA for a couple months but had been back home to visit,” he recalls of the song’s genesis. “When I was back home, it brought up old memories that were pivotal to the vibe of the song. It’s totally me and what my music is...everything I am as an artist.” While “Makeup,” will set the stage for what’s to come from Landon Cube, other songs like the Lil Skies-assisted “17” deliver a hindsight understanding where life can take you in just a few years. “I came back to LA and was just thinking about the past stuff, and one of the lines is, ‘Girl we ain’t 17,’” he expresses. “It’s about being onto bigger and better things.” Landon Cube has already secured a solid following based upon his honest and heartfelt music, and the next phase in his career will bring more of that to the forefront. “I just want to be able to keep making music and keep getting better, honestly,” he humbly advises. “And have people relate to it and be on board with it along the way.”

Starcrawler
Starcrawler

Starcrawler are a truly original young band from the city of Los Angeles. Led by their nineteen-year-old frontwoman Arrow de Wilde, their take on dark and heavy rock & roll both recorded and through their chaotic live shows, brings such music into the 21st century as an almost transgressive pop music. 2019 brings lots of new music and touring, starting with their massive new single “She Gets Around,” a song the band calls “an anthem for backstabbers.” It is a first look at their soon-to-be announced new album and follows December’s “Hollywood Ending” which earned praise from NPR, Rolling Stone, and spent several weeks at #1 on specialty radio. Capturing Arrow de Wilde’s manic live performance, “She Gets Around” was produced and mixed by Nick Launay (Nick Cave, David Byrne, Yeah Yeah Yeahs) and was the first of many times to come that guitarist Henri Cash, drummer Austin Smith and bassist Tim Franco have had a chance to really spend time in a studio and aim to make a record vs simply document a live moment. “She Gets Around” hints at 90s alt-rock bands such as The Breeders and Nirvana, while showcasing the strange, one-of-a-kind spirit and ferocity that is Starcrawler. The new year also brings a long slate of touring as they record and release their second LP also produced by Nick Launay. This summer brings slots at Glastonbury, Eurorockennes and more festivals as well as upcoming US tours with the likes of Beck, Cage the Elephant, Spoon, and The Distillers. This fall, they embark on a full headline world tour for the first time. Starcrawler are all LA natives and met in high school. Their self-titled LP was released one year ago in January by Rough Trade Records to rave reviews. Since then, they’ve toured non-stop all over the world, including triumphant sets at Primavera, Rock Am Ring, Download Festival, Voodoo Festival, Fuji Rock, Reading, Leeds and more. In March, they won the 2018 SXSW Grulke prize for best US act after blowing minds at each of their nine shows. They were VEVO DSCVR artists with video testimonial from Shirley Manson who said: “I feel like Starcrawler, and in particular Arrow, are really challenging the norms in which women are seen in music.” The amount of support they have received from their fellow artists has been overwhelming. They opened shows for the Foo Fighters at Olympic Park in London and toured with The Distillers and MC5. They have made a constant name for themselves not only live, but with their incredible visuals that both harken back at points to the 90s heyday of MTV but also speak to their own highly developed aesthetic and individual spirit. See videos for “Hollywood Ending” and “I Love LA.” Their upcoming LP with Nick Launay makes explicit that this group of young artists are now figuring out how to capture their wild energy, spirit and engrossing aesthetic and lay it all down on tape.

Nashville Pussy
Nashville Pussy

Nashville Pussy is an American hard rock band from Atlanta, Georgia. Many of their songs are about sex, drugs, drinking, fighting, and rock & roll. Their musical style mixes hard rock, punk rock, Southern metal and psychobilly. Much of their music is not what would be considered traditionally "radio friendly", due to their frequent use of expletives and vulgar terminology. Initially called Hell's Half-Acre, the band's name comes from Ted Nugent's introduction to "Wang Dang Sweet Poontang" on the Double Live Gonzo album. The core lineup of Nashville Pussy consists of husband-and-wife duo Blaine Cartwright and Ruyter Suys (pronounced "Rider Sighs"), and drummer Jeremy Thompson. Original bassist Corey Parks (sister of former NBA basketball player Cherokee Parks) left after the album High as Hell, to be replaced by Katielyn Campbell (of the band C'mon) for the album Say Something Nasty. Campbell was subsequently replaced by Karen Cuda for the album Get Some. The Band: Blaine Cartwright - Guitar / Vocals Ruyter Suys - Lead Guitar Ben Thomas - Drums Bonnie Buitrago - Bass (Blaine and Ruyter are married)

Mating Ritual
Mating Ritual

Mating Ritual is an independent pop duo based in Los Angeles, CA. Previously known as Pacific Air, Ryan Marshall Lawhon founded Mating Ritual in 2014 when his brother Taylor decided to go back to school. Though initially a solo project, Mating Ritual became increasingly more collaborative leading up to his debut album, 2017’s How You Gonna Stop It?, released on Ryan’s own label, Smooth Jaws. Working heavily with other LA songwriters and artists, including ascending pop singer Lizzy Land, the brothers realized they missed creating music as a duo and immediately began work on Mating Rituals sophomore album, Light Myself On Fire. Blending Taylor’s love of 80’s synth pop with Ryan’s post punk infatuation, Light Myself On Fire is a darker, grittier record that shows the brothers refining their individual talents from a much grander and more unified statement. Written entirely after midnight (with the exception of one noticeably sunny tune), these 9 songs talk about maturation and commitment. “Committing to anything long term can be difficult,” says Ryan “Boredom and complacency set in, and while change can be a good thing, using it as a crutch will just bring you back to the same place, feeling emptier than before. This album is about learning that the grass is not always greener, that the next fleeting dopamine rush won’t solve everything. In a weird way, I think this my better-late-than –never coming of age record”

Today the Brighton, UK-based quartet Penelope Isles, led by brother and sister Jack and Lily Wolter, have released “Cut Your Hair” from their forthcoming debut album Until the Tide Creeps In, due out this Friday, July 12th on Bella Union. Flood premiered the song, saying: "QUOTE." You can listen to the beautiful and spacious, slow burning jam HERE, and pre-order the album HERE. Additionally, the band is happy to reveal details for their first ever North American tour, taking place this fall. Full list of the band's dates below. Purchase tickets HERE. Jack Wolter had this to say about the song: "One of my favourite songs to play live. The slow sludgy groove always feels like a refreshing moment in the set. I wrote it in our old garage on the Isle Of Man whilst in uncertainty of whether or not to move away to pursue a career in music or not. I had a small studio set up and it started with the drum groove and the rest happened really quickly. I guess it’s a fixtinal tale and concept of what could have been me if I didn’t have a go at doing ‘the band thing’. A don’t give up on your dreams kinda thing."

Matthew Mayfield
Matthew Mayfield

From haunting acoustic ballads to gritty rock and roll songs filled with swagger and attitude, Matthew Mayfield has spent the past decade releasing  music that has changed the hearts and lives of his listeners. His latest LP,  Gun Shy​, is a collection of songs as varied as the emotions each of us feels.  If his previous release, ​RECOIL​, was the fruit of an intense effort by Mayfield  to depict the good, the bad, and the ugly in the world he inhabited, ​Gun Shy  is a look into all worlds – those full of darkness and hope.  To connect with listeners and draw them into these worlds, Matthew created  Inside the Song with Matthew Mayfield​, a podcast dedicated to telling the  stories behind the songs of ​Gun Shy - ​Mayfield’s most introspective and  personal record to date. “Our Winds” speaks of true love and hope in the  midst of pressure from external forces while “Broken Clocks” finds him  accepting a relationship that is doomed to fall apart. The riffs and hooks found in “Gun Shy” and “Best of Me” show Mayfield as the rock and roller he is. While Mayfield is known for crafting both gripping ballads and eclectic rock songs, ​Gun Shy​’s greatest triumph lies somewhere in between. “S.H.A.M.E.,”  the album’s third track, touches on what is currently Mayfield’s deepest  concern – a world full of people that feel as if they are alone. “Shame is  something that no one wants to talk about, but we’re all ashamed of  something. We all have demons and things that prevent us from seeing our  self-worth. The song is about connecting with people and letting them know  they are not alone,” says Mayfield. “Connection is everything, and music has  a unique way of helping people connect to others and to parts of themselves  that they might otherwise be unable to access.”  Gun Shy​ is now available on all digital platforms worldwide. Physical copies  are available on matthewmayfield.com.
