Seattle’s indie folk-rock outfit the Head and the Heart recently took to Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to perform new single “Shake” and “Another Story.” The tracks appear on their upcoming sophomore album Let’s Be Still, due out Oct. 15.
Rolling Stone is now streaming the album in its entirety here.
U.K. singer/songwriter Scott Matthews was recently featured in MusicRadar. The Ivor Novello award winner for songwriter discusses his inspirations, gives tips on songwriting and arranging instruments and dishes on his favorite gear.
“I’ve always been drawn to Guild, partly because most of my influences played them,” Matthews tells MR. “I remember buying my first Guild – a 1977 D-25. It’s without doubt the one guitar I can take into battle and still come out with unscathed. It’s built like a tank and sounds as sweet as a blackbird at the crack of dawn. The new Guilds are even better. I’ve been fortunate to try the new prototype Orpheum series. They’re unreal; light yet rock solid, and the attention to detail is insane. They sound like nothing else, and the ’30s-era design ethos also ticks a big box for me.”
Irish singer-songwriter Foy Vance couldn’t have been more gracious or entertaining when he came by our Guild Lounge to play his new song “Regarding Your Lover.” The ballad appears on his new album, Joy Of Nothing, out now on Glassnote Records.
With the release of Sway, Blue October’s seventh studio album, in August of this year, the Texas rockers have dropped a lyric video for the title track.
The album has seen a solid run of success thus far, debuting at No. 13 on the Billboard Top 200, No. 1 on Billboard‘s Alternative Albums chart, No. 2 on the Billboard Independent Albums chart, No. 3 among Billboard‘s Top Rock Albums, No. 10 on the Billboard Digital Albums chart and No. 8 on iTunes.
