Cult Party Announce New LP 'And Then There Was This Sound', Share First Single

Wednesday, 13 June 2018 Written by Laura Johnson

Cult Party will release a new album next month.

'And Then There Was This Sound' is set to arrive on July 21 through Icecapades Records. Head below to check out its first single, I Got The Blues This Morning, artwork and tracklist.

Speaking about the song, bandleader Leo Robinson said:

"When I wrote I Got The Blues... I was really into the idea of writing a kind of delta blues "woke up this morning" style song. Even though it doesn't really sound anything like that it still has that confessional tone, like the idea of a song that comes from a person, and tells you how that person feels and where they went. Like when Woody Guthrie sang "It takes a ten dollar shoe to fit my feet", it's like he's just singing the last thing he thought about but it's a powerful insight somehow. That's kind of what this song was like for me. I guess it's about the healing powers of specific places and ways of healing or dealing with sadness in general. But this is probably the first song I've written that isn't bursting with symbolism, so it's all very much on the surface."

'And Then There Was Sound' tracklist:

1. Hurricane Girl
2. Rabbit Dog
3. I Got The Blues This Morning
4. Pastures of Plenty

There’s something new, yet familiar, about its melodies, its heart-warming immediacy and the effortless chemistry that oozes from the bewitching songs within. We’re basically talking the musical equivalent of love at first sight, which is exactly what fans of bluesy rock ‘n’ roll and American roots music will doubtless feel after hearing Jawbone’s quietly magnificent self-titled bow.

Friction is naturally created by expectations rubbing up against the mechanics of making music in a fresh formation, often leading to overhyped records that feel like a tired exhalation of breath from their first note.
'We Wanted To Reach People on a Personal Level': Pijn Discuss The Genre-Defying Power Of 'Loss'
Mon 12 Nov 2018
A striking development in the past decade or so has been the extent to which people discover music through mood as opposed to genre. Streaming services have adapted to perceived consumer demand by releasing reams of playlists tailored to every emotion or context imaginable, from deeply depressed to “songs to sing to in the car”. This has its upsides and downsides for a band like Pijn.
Mick Jenkins - Pieces Of A Man (Album Review)

Mick Jenkins was riding the crest of a wave when his breakout mixtape 'The Water[s]' dropped in the summer of 2014. Talented heads like Chance the Rapper, Vic Mensa, Noname and Saba would all go on to emerge from the same bubbling Chicago hip-hop scene, but Jenkins had positioned himself in critics' minds as the moody and technically gifted older brother. He already appeared fully formed in an artistic sense, framing highly conceptual songwriting with jazz-influenced verses and a raspy vocal delivery.
