Shakey Graves has shared two new tracks, Counting Sheep and Kids These Days.

They will feature on 'Can't Wake Up', the follow up to 2014's 'And The War Came', which is due out on May 4 through Dualtone Records.

Speaking about his new record,  Alejandro Rose-Garcia said:

“This record is the most I’ve ever intentionally worked on a project, musically speaking, in terms of the scope of it and how much thought went into it. It’s a dense album; there’s a lot of information going on.”

Prior to the album's arrival Shakey Graves will play shows in the UK and Ireland and the entire Shakey Graves catalogue will be available on Bandcamp for 'pay-what-you-want' from February 9 to February 11.

Proceeds from concert sales and a portion of the proceeds from Bandcamp will be split between the Health Alliance For Austin Musicians and Southern Poverty Law Center.

Weed, Riffs And Prog: Boss Keloid Head Into The Unknown
Thu 26 Apr 2018
In a little under a decade together, Boss Keloid have earned a good deal of support from the metal community. Having risen up from scene in the northwest of England, the Wigan five piece have performed at Bloodstock and been hotly tipped by Metal Hammer, Kerrang, and Terrorizer. Much of this acclaim is owed to their killer sophomore album, ‘Herb Your Enthusiasm’, which, understandably, turned the heads of stoner-doom enthusiasts across the weedesphere back in 2016.
Music Is Meant To Inspire: How Brothers Osborne Created The Sprawling 'Port Saint Joe'
Fri 04 May 2018
The notion of genre as insular and self-contained is eroding. In a way that reflects our increasingly interconnected global community, exposure to a wider variety of influences means that fewer artists will stick devoutly to one style. Stuffy traditionalists will complain, but on their sophomore record ‘Port Saint Joe’ the Brothers Osborne show exactly why such an eclectic approach can reboot venerable musical forms in a fresh and exciting way.
Music Was Always There: Jake Ewald Talks Starting Again With Slaughter Beach, Dog
Fri 04 May 2018
Photo: Jess Flynn Back in February of last year, Jake Ewald had to find a new job. After several years spent writing records and touring with Modern Baseball, the band went on indefinite hiatus. The statement they released referred to the fact that they had been “championing the importance of mental health” and that the band had become a source of anxiety that they could no longer ignore.

John Prine - Tree of Forgiveness (Album Review)
Thu 19 Apr 2018
‘The Tree of Forgiveness’, John Prine’s first album of originals in 13 years, sees the singer-songwriter deliver a fine collection of folksy Americana, with his distinctive and understated drawl presenting themes of mortality and rejuvenation. It is an album of genteel humour and quiet existentialism that should inform (and remind) listeners of his rare talent.

Rough Hands - Moral Terror EP (Album Review)
Tue 17 Apr 2018
Photo: Harry Steel Rough Hands’ ‘Moral Terror’ EP is an example of intelligent British hardcore that will nevertheless satisfy your unquenchable mosh pit bloodlust. It would certainly be a fitting soundtrack for isolationist misanthropy, or maybe sending a windmilling elbow towards someone’s face. But there is more at at work here than just noise and chest-beating.
Princess Nokia - A Girl Cried Red (Album Review)
Thu 26 Apr 2018
Photo: Alberto Vargas There's something immensely likeable about east coast rap whizz Princess Nokia, at least at first glance. She's a strong role model for young women in hip hop, known for advocating a feminist ethos and calling out racism, homophobia and body shaming at every opportunity. Her label debut, '1992 Deluxe', though inconsistent, was colourful and abstract, with each track exhibiting a different aspect of her fascinating personality.
