Glen Hansard announces new album ‘This Wild Willing’ out April 12th via ANTI-

Those who have followed Glen Hansard’s career since his Academy Award winning turn in the film ‘Once’ will have witnessed one artistic arc: the journey of a Dublin busker who cut his teeth on the greats – Dylan, Van Morrison, Leonard Cohen – and followed the path of the troubadour to great effect. But there is another thread running through Hansard’s musicianship; in his decades as lead singer of Irish stalwarts The Frames, rock and folk ambitions coexisted with moments of strangeness, intimacy, and stillness.

SOEN: BrooklynVegan Debuts Stunningly Animated “Lotus” Video

In just two weeks, Swedish metal collective SOEN will unleash their long-waited new full-length, Lotus, via Silver Lining Music. Boasting nine intoxicating hymns questioning much of today’s darkness while juxtaposing them with moments of great escape and hope, songs such as “Rival,” “Covenant,” and “Martyrs” are dissertations on modern societies, fraught with poetic, finitely designed confusion and chaos. Yet as the name Lotus suggests, there is still strength, beauty, and purity to be extracted from what at times seems like an endless cycle of human regression.


On this new release, Peking Duk comment, “This beat and song went through so many different lifeforms before Holly jumped on board. We’ve always loved what Jack River does and how she does it, so once she said that she loved the idea and hopped on the song, everything fit perfectly. She changed what was once a sombre melancholic skeleton of a song in to a fun, playful and sugary playground. Stoked. ❤”
