JOHNNY LLOYD – Unveils intimate ‘Rich And Poor’ video // Debut Solo Album out 3 May
Artful of arrangement, articulate in its observations and elegant in its understated delivery, ‘Rich And Poor’ sees Johnny deliver a crisp and wistful cut that questions whether the rise of the machines may be putting more between humans than just a screen…
Speaking about the EP release Laville reveals, “This EP is a tiny snippet into what kind of music I want to make, and think that’s an honest form of soul music. One that gives flavour of the old and new school. It’s like a rebirth for me. It signifies leaving old habits, behaviour and parties behind. Passport home is a pleasure to sing because it’s so well written and arranged. I’m not afraid of a cover if I think I can do it justice.”

Swedish production and songwriting extraordinaire OLSSON is releasing “Parasol” today. The song is the second single from his forthcoming full-length studio album Tropical Cologne – which is due out April 26th via Universal Sweden. “Parasol” is an 80s inspired pop-track sundrenched in melodies that will transport you to a beach by the ocean with a drink in your hand. This summer anthem collects influences from such legends as Fleetwood Mac’s 80s sounds as well as Vampire Weekend’s modern take on The Beach Boys.

CARVED – release new official videoclip for “Hagakure”
Prog Death Metal band Carved presents the first impressive videoclip of the song Hagakure from the last album Thanatos.
Bluegrass has a history of songs that caution against profit over the value of human lives and make note of the consequences — think Jim & Jesse’s recording of “Paradise,” or recent IBMA Hall of Fame inductee Hazel Dickens’ “Black Lung.” These ballads of warning, and sometimes of protest, can act as cautionary, thought-provoking tales that fit well into the heritage of bluegrass, folk and American roots music.
