In January 2016 Tindersticks will release their new album The Waiting Room, a milestone not just numerically, but musically and creatively. Their first studio album since 2012 s critically acclaimed The Something Rain' is the most ambitious, diverse and elaborate album you ll have heard from Tindersticks in recent years. 2 decades into their musical voyage these masters of restraint and poetic human emotion, are a band now confidently making the best songs of their career. The Waiting Room' breathes gravity and features guest appearances by Jehnny Beth of Savages and a particularly poignant duet with long time friend of Stuart Staples and Canadian legend, Lhasa De Sela.
Dutch concept compilation album with exclusive songs from many interesting prog bands Aragon, Brassé, Cliffhanger, Final Conflict, Galahad, Galleon, Jacob's Dream, Like Wendy, Maryson, The Night Watch. Directed by Marc Brassé, each band was asked to write and record a new song and together, they form a story… a musical adventure around a number of paintings in a room. An interesting visit for all neo prog lovers…
On The Blue Room, her second Decca recording, Madeleine Peyroux and producer Larry Klein re-examine the influence of Ray Charles' revolutionary 1962 date, Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music. They don't try to re-create the album, but remake some of its songs and include others by composers whose work would benefit from the genre-blurring treatment Charles pioneered. Bassist David Pilch, drummer Jay Bellerose, guitarist Dean Parks, and pianist/organist Larry Goldings are the perfect collaborators. Most these ten tracks feature string arrangements by Vince Mendoza.
After the incredible success of their "Doctorin' the Tardis" single in 1988 (better known as that theme from Dr. Who), Drummond and Cauty had plenty of money to hire talented musicians (instead of merely sampling them, as on their early recordings). The White Room is the result, an album bursting with hit singles that nevertheless flows as well as any concept album. Often overlooked as a classic from the acid house era (mostly because of the KLF's retirement one year later), The White Room represents the commercial and artistic peak of late-'80s acid-house. Japanese edition includes 3 bonus tracks.
