“In the same radio-friendly alternative-pop bracket as Haim, and rings with the same kind of ambition” – NME

“A pop cracker, all spiky guitars, shimmering synths and kiss-off lyrics.” – The Sunday Times Culture

“A thrilling, driving tune that recalls nothing less than early Bloc Party.” – XFM, Record of the Week

“All pounding, driving rhythms, flashes of synths and Editors-style post-punk guitars.” – Shortlist

After the positive reception that greeted their introductory singles ‘Thank You’ and ‘Too Young To Live’, Irish duo ALL TVVINS have spent recent weeks building towards the release of their current single ‘Darkest Ocean’ which has already passed 700,000 plays between Spotify, YouTube and SoundCloud. ALL TVVINS recently hit the road for a tour as guests to Metric, and ‘Darkest Ocean’ was featured on the huge-selling FIFA 16 game.

ALL TVVINS have now launched the official video for ‘Darkest Ocean’ which continues their creative relationship with director Brandan Canty (Hozier’s ‘Take Me To Church’). It depicts the band’s dynamic performance of the track with a series of stunning aerial shots as the camera sweeps the length of a dramatic stretch of coastline.

The launch of the video follows the news of a new tour that includes a London show at The Victoria, Dalston as well as a set at the Mutations Festival. The dates – scheduled below – added to the recent confirmation of their biggest Dublin show to date at the Academy:

November

20th – Dublin, Academy

21st – Nottingham, Bodega

23rd – Manchester, Ruby Lounge

25th – Glasgow, King Tuts

28th – Brighton, Mutations Festival

30th – London, The Victoria Dalston

Tickets for the Ireland and UK dates are on sale now.

ALL TVVINS consists of two multi-instrumentalists in the shape of Conor Adams (primarily vocals and bass) and Lar Kaye (guitars), who first met on the Dublin underground scene and started working together in the summer of 2013.

Their collision of disparate influences results in a sound akin to a melting point of TV On The Radio’s art-pop twists with the leftfield psychedelic excursions of Animal Collective. Even just a snapshot of their songbook demonstrates an admirable disregard for conventional genre boundaries.

Having previously supported Arcade Fire, Pixies and Jungle, and earned the respect of new wave pioneers Blondie following a set at Electric Picnic, ALL TVVINS’ summer festival touring has already included Pukkelpop, Dot To Dot and Field Day, as well as the VICE house party.

Set for release on November 13th, ‘x’ Wembley Edition is the repackaged album from Ed Sheeran. This album repack product comes just in time for the festive season with both a CD and DVD portion. The CD portion not only features all the hits taken from Ed’s multi award-winning, second studio album ‘x’, but also boasts an amazing five new tracks, including ‘Lay It All On Me’, which sees Ed lend his vocals over Rudimental’ s timelessly produced number. ‘English Rose’, ‘Touch and Go’, ‘New York’ and ‘Make It Rain’, the additional new tracks on this album, were once again (like ‘x’) recorded across the globe from LA, to New York and back to London, with Ed sticking with the formula that made his second studio album the biggest-selling LP of 2014. He calls on assistance from producer Rick Rubin (Eminem, Jay-Z, & Red Hot Chilli Peppers) on ‘Touch and Go’ and links up with Emile Haynie (Bruno Mars, Eminem, Lana Del Ray) on ‘New York’.

The DVD portion titled ‘Jumpers For Goalposts Live at Wembley Stadium’ features the breathtaking footage taken this summer as Ed made history, becoming the first solo artist to sell-out three consecutive nights at Wembley Stadium, playing to over 240,000 people! It features electrifying performances of all of the hits: ‘The A Team’, ‘Don’t’, ‘Sing’, ‘Thinking Out Loud’ and we even get a glimpse of Sir Elton John as the two undertake a one-off duet. Aside from the live performances, Jumpers For Goalposts Live at Wembley Stadium gives viewers an insight into life on the road with Ed, giving an honest and intimate window into the journey he’s taken thus far.

Nonesuch Releases ‘Junun’ on November 13

Nonesuch Releases Shye Ben Tzur, Jonny Greenwood and the Rajasthan Express’ ‘Junun’ on November 13

Recording process in India documented for Junun film, directed by Paul Thomas Anderson

Nonesuch Records releases Junun—an album from composer/musician Shye Ben Tzur, guitarist Jonny Greenwood, and the Rajasthan Express, a group of Indian qawwali musicians—on November 13, 2015. Recorded earlier this year in a makeshift studio inside the 15th-century Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur, India, the album was made with Radiohead’s producer Nigel Godrich, who worked with the ensemble to create this two LP/CD album. The album features Ben Tzur’s compositions, which combine ecstatic, devotional Sufi qawwal musical traditions and his native Hebrew. Pre-orders of Junun (an alternate spelling of “junoon,” which means “mania,” or “the madness of love.”) are available now from iTunes and from nonesuch.com with an instant download of the album track “Roked;” a film clip featuring “Roked” premiered this morning at pitchfork.com and can be viewed here.

The filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson, a friend and frequent collaborator of Greenwood, came along to document the recording sessions as well as daily life and the close camaraderie of artistic collaboration. Anderson’s resulting impressionistic film, also entitled Junun, debuted at the New York Film Festival on October 8 and began streaming today exclusively on MUBI, where it will stream for 30 days. Junun also will be shown at the Rome Film Festival in mid-October.

Greenwood made a guest appearance last year during Ben Tzur’s London concert, where they previewed some of the music of Junun, and this summer, the two were joined by the qawwali party for two performances at the Jerusalem Sacred Music Festival. Further concerts are being planned for the future, as are additional screenings of Anderson’s film.

Shye Ben Tzur is an Israeli composer/producer/poet and performer who lives in India and Israel. He composes qawwalis, instrumental and devotional music, in Hebrew, Urdu, and Hindi. A concert by Zakir Hussain and Hariprasad Chaurasia that Ben Tzur attended as a young man was life-changing. “It touched my heart so deeply,” he says. “It was at the time the deepest musical experience I had gone through. It moved me so that I could do nothing but go find out what it is. I feel I’m still in that spot. I don’t think I have achieved it. Indian music is so vast and so deep and the more I learn different things about it, I realize how ignorant I was. It just doesn’t stop.”

“When I was in the Negev desert in southern Israel a couple of years ago, I heard a band playing a song using an Arabic violin called a rehab,” Greenwood told London’s Evening Standard. “It was a strange mix of Arabic and traditional Indian music, one that I’d never come across before,” He continued, “The best song, I found out, was written by Shye Ben Tzur, an Israeli musician who had been living in India until this year. I set out to discover more about him … I’m always a little wary of rock bands half-heartedly dabbling in world music—itself a slightly greasy term—but there are exceptions. Damon Albarn is one: his work with musicians in Mali is something he’s clearly fully committed to. And I think Shye Ben Tzur is another.”

Widely known as the guitarist for Radiohead, Jonny Greenwood also is a highly respected composer. In addition to his soundtracks to Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice, There Will Be Blood, and The Master, Nonesuch also released his score for Norwegian Wood and his collaboration with Polish composer Krzysztof Penderecki.

Gavin James has spent the summer supporting Sam Smith around America, before opening for 2 x Ed Sheeran Croke Park shows in Dublin in front of 164,000 people and Taylor Swift in Hyde Park. A European and American headline tour is now on sale for later this year, featuring London’s Scala on December 8 and a four-night SELL OUT return run at Dublin’s Whelan’s from December 21-23.

Biography:
On his way to becoming one of 2016’s international crossover-stories, Gavin James was born in Ashington, a suburb on the northside of Dublin. The 23-year-old son of a postman, music was arguably in James’ blood: his great grandparents were both famous Irish Opera singers and had their own albums released in the early 1900s (they had to turn down an invitation to perform in London owing to their families, and the political conditions of the time). Having started out playing Jimi Hendrix covers in the garden shed, Gavin then drew the short straw when he was chosen as the singer of his teenage band, and learnt his subsequent solo craft the hard way. Inspired by local heroes like Damien Rice and classic, grafting Soul artists such as Sam Cooke, he would play Dublin’s pubs virtually 7 nights a week during college, in a marathon of 3-hour shows.

Growing in confidence, Gavin James’ own material then began to draw an impassioned following: his first ever single won Ireland’s answer to the Mercury (the Choice Prize for ‘Song Of The Year’), stayed on the charts for over 6 months and culminated with 2014’s #1-charting, ‘Live at Whelans’ album: a venue he used to sneak inside when underage, but returned to as a rapturously-received headliner. That night, he happened to perform an impulsive cover of The Magnetic Fields’ ‘The Book Of Love’, accelerating Gavin’s word-of-mouth success story (the track has since become a platinum-selling hit around Europe, with upwards of 6 million plays on Spotify).

With his first piece of recorded material – ‘For You’ – reaching number 1 in Ireland and going top 10 on iTunes in the US, Canada and Holland, Gavin James has inched closer to the spotlight with an appearance on ‘The Late Late Show With James Corden’. Continuing with ‘22’, lifted from sessions from his debut album, Gavin James looks poised to become the next great voice to shine a light back on the Dublin suburbs (and beyond).

• Gavin is the only artist to sell out Dublin’s Olympia Theatre and Amsterdam’s Paradiso without having released an album
• In 2015, Gavin has toured the U.S.A. with Kodaline, Tori Kelly and Sam Smith
• In 2013 Gavin won the Choice Music Prize ‘Song of the Year’ for ‘Say Hello’
