THE SHORT LIST

The Black Keys
‘Let’s Rock’

THE PRESS RELEASE:‘Let’s Rock’ is a return to the straightforward rock of the singer/guitarist Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney’s early days as a band. Auerbach says, “When we’re together we are The Black Keys, that’s where that real magic is, and always has been since we were 16.” ‘Let’s Rock’ was written, tracked live, and produced by Auerbach and Carney at Easy Eye Sound studio in Nashville and features backing vocals from Leisa Hans and Ashley Wilcoxson. “The record is like a homage to electric guitar,” says Carney. “We took a simple approach and trimmed all the fat like we used to.” READ MY REVIEW HERE


Miles Davis
The Complete Birth of the Cool

THE PRESS RELEASE:The Complete Birth of the Cool documents the huge creative and cultural importance of the Miles Davis Nonet. The collection marks the 70th anniversary of the initial sessions for the Birth of the Cool album, released in 1957 as a collection of recordings from 1949 and 1950. The sessions, in a nondescript basement room behind a Chinese laundry in midtown Manhattan, saw a group of kindred spirits and jazz modernists come together to form a groundbreaking collective. They included the jazz-headliners-to-be Gerry Mulligan, Lee Konitz, Max Roach, John Lewis, arranger Gil Evans and, of course trumpeter Miles Davis, then 22, who became the bandleader, helming a creative project for the first time. The nine-piece group worked together in the studio and on stage in 1949 and 1950 to little public reaction at first. It was only seven years later, when their music came together on a full LP for the first time, that its impact was fully realised. When Davis was later asked about the Birth of the Cool title, he said: “I think what they really meant was a soft sound. Not penetrating too much. To play soft you have to relax…” In his 1989 autobiography, he added: “Birth was not only hummable but it had white people playing the music and serving in prominent roles…we shook people’s ears a little softer than Bird or Diz did, took the music more mainstream.”


Thom Yorke
Anima

THE PRESS RELEASE:Thom Yorke’s new studio album Anima will be accompanied by a “one-reeler,” also entitled Anima, directed by Paul Thomas Anderson and set to three tracks from the new album. The “one-reeler” will be available to watch exclusively via Netflix. Featuring several songs that were debuted live over the course of Thom Yorke, Nigel Godrich and Tarik Barri’s Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes performances, Anima was written by Yorke and produced by Godrich.”
