Andy Caldwell Premieres New Video For "Hold The Line"

Grammy-Nominated DJ/Producer Andy Caldwell has unveiled a music video for his latest single, “Hold The Line” featuring Lisa Shaw. The video, which premiered on USA Today, was directed by Ashley Walters and stars Game Of Thrones actress Esme Bianco (also Caldwell’s girlfriend).

Of the video, Caldwell tells USA Today, “We had this idea of going to an old motel and shooting this sort of storyboard about the song. We filmed most of it on an iPhone and then edited it on a Mac. It was pretty DIY, the whole process."

The Trews To Release Self-Titled Album On April 22


“The songs all creep up on you, rather than being over-the-top. What they will ensure is that you’ll want to go
back and check them out again and again.”
- Malcolm Dome, Classic Rock Magazine

"The Trews' strength is in the hooky rock that dominates the set list... They nimbly balance between commercial pop and tougher rock without falling into either camp.”
- Hal Horowitz, All Music

Since the release of their highly celebrated debut House of Ill Fame (2003), The Trews have gained a reputation as one of Canada's most electrifying live Rock bands. Ten years, five studio albums and thousands of gigs in, the Ontario-based rockers are still going strong and are as willing as ever to break the mold. They release their self-titled, Nettwerk debut digitally in the U.S. on April 22, 2014.

New Signing: Boxed In (Plus Free Download!)

"One of the most pleasing, satisfying aspects of the current psychedelic resurgence... One part Neu! beat, one part Syd Barrett vision." – Clash

"Crisp piano and meaty bass meander around a tight motorik rhythm. It's exciting stuff." – The Line Of Best Fit

"Forlorn and frantic, like Neu! chasing New Order across the beach in Ibiza at 4am."
The Guardian

Having cut his teeth in much-touted Manchester band Keith, Oli Bayston has more recently been acquiring production credits alongside Dan Carey (Steve Mason and Toy), playing keyboards for the likes of Willy Mason and putting his accomplished song-writing talents on display for The 2 Bears, George Fitzgerald and Rosie Lowe.

Now, under the Francis Bacon inspired moniker Boxed In - the name is loosely derived from Bacon’s infamous Head VI, once described as “the operation through which the entire body escapes through the mouth” - he has stepped into the spotlight to reveal his immaculately produced, energetic sound and signed to Nettwerk for his debut release, due out later this year. A new song, “No Joke,” from the forthcoming album debuted earlier this week on UK blog The Line Of Best Fit.

Filmed by a photographer friend on a recent shoot in India with Jurgen Teller, the “No Joke” video features 'The Kolcata Laughing Society' on one of their uplifting morning 'routines'. After a quick edit, it was set to the glitchy piano and smooth, sophisticated vocals of Bayston's first solo offering.

“If you can get people dancing as early as noon. You're good. They did." – NPR’s All Songs Considered

Mike Rosenberg, aka Passenger, has announced that his new album, Whispers, will be released on June 10, 2014. The lead single in North America, “Scare Away The Dark,” will be available on iTunes and all DSPs on April 1 (NA only). Passenger will appear on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon this Friday, March 28, where he’ll perform “Scare Away The Dark” for the first time on national television.

Recorded in Sydney and co-produced by Chris Vallejo, Whispers is comprised of 11 tracks that tell tales – some real, some imagined – of love, death, growing up and getting old. A master of story telling, Passenger yet again strikes the perfect balance between the heartbreaking and the humorous, all wrapped in beautiful instrumentation, creating a sumptuous, symphonic sound.

“This is easily the most ‘up’ album I’ve ever made,” explains Passenger. “It’s quite cinematic. There are lots of big stories and big ideas. There are also some somber moments about loneliness and death but, hey, it wouldn’t be a Passenger album without those. Mostly though, it’s a really positive album.”
