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.

Tue February 27 2018 - LONDON Garage
Wed February 28 2018 - MANCHESTER Ruby Lounge
Thu March 01 2018 - GLASGOW Art School

Petal - Magic Gone (Album Review)
Wed 04 Jul 2018
‘Magic Gone’ begins abruptly with the Teenage Kicks-esque power chords of Better Than You, painting a picture of an album that’s going to be fuelled by anger, passion and enthusiasm, but the reality is far more measured.
Jim James - Uniform Distortion (Album Review)
Thu 05 Jul 2018
Photo: Justin Tyler Close On Jim James’ third solo album, the My Morning Jacket bandleader has dispensed with indie psychedelia in favour of straightforward, gutsy rock tunes. The result is a record of tight musical elements, with a consistently radio-friendly sound, that falls flat when compared to more innovative releases by better rock songwriters.
Sons of Bill - Oh God Ma'am (Album Review)
Thu 12 Jul 2018
Almost everything you need to know about the remarkable transformation Virginia siblings Sons of Bill have undergone on ‘Oh God Ma’am’ can be gleaned from its album cover. An old-fashioned colour TV lies on the floor, smashed and surrounded by dirt, its shadow eclipsing the light. The screen shows a grinning, optimistic, all American kid, his image bisected by the shattered screen. The dream, as they say, is over.
Immortal - Northern Chaos Gods (Album Review)
Wed 11 Jul 2018
Not many Norwegian black metal bands can claim to be a legitimate part of popular culture. They’re not usually seen doing ‘What’s In My Bag?’ videos or hanging out with Post Malone. Instead, they’re in the forest. Being grim. Being evil.
Bodega - Endless Scroll (Album Review)
Mon 16 Jul 2018
Bodega are the art school kids who might sneer at you for Instagramming a picture at their show. They’re the ones who, after a convincing “this isn’t satire”, order their audience to check their emails during the next song. Bodega roll out lines like “I touch myself while staring at your chat text box” and “I use my computer for everything, heaven knows I’m miserable now.” Their message: we are dominated by consumer culture and technology is taking over our lives.

The Beths are learning Welsh. It’s a little after 10 at Le Pub in Newport, and the New Zealand indie-pop band are parroting back a few reliable words and phrases shouted from the crowd. They try cwtch and iechyd da on for size before Elizabeth Stokes draws a line under it. “We’re butchering this,” she says. “Let’s do a song.”
Ovlov - Tru (Album Review)
Mon 23 Jul 2018
There are several ways for records to stand out. They might say something meaningful, or push the boundaries of a genre. Others are so good at purveying a particular mood and atmosphere that they don’t need to do much else. Ovlov’s second album, ‘TRU’, is one of those.
