Prince just announced his plans to release two new albums simultaneously on September 30th:
1) Art Official Age, a solo album in “classic Prince” style
2) PLECTRUMELECTRUM, a funk album with his all-female band 3RDEYEGIRL
You can hear the new song “Clouds,” a track from Art Official Age, and check the cover art for both albums below…
The Frozen North’s debut single, Origin/Electric Mistress, is a lovely, haunting, electro-classical instrumental work. A relatively new Warsaw band, The Frozen North features guitarist Neil Milton, a.k.a. the man behind Scottish/Polish indie label, Too Many Fireworks, and last year’s fantastic Variations on Chopin collection.
We’ve been so inundated with music submissions this year (hundreds per day) that several excellent songs have gathered dust in my “Surfacing” series draft folder patiently awaiting publication. One such overlooked gem is “Tears Apart” by Letters to Fiesta, which was submitted to Muruch after we gave a favorable review to Kate Bush’s 50 Words for Snow. The song is featured on the Manchester band’s EP, Aphorism.
