They Might Be Giants

They Might Be Giants Glean, on Lojinx 2015 is already a landmark year in two-time Grammy winners They Might Be Giants‘ illustrious career. With the return of their Dial-A-Song service, the band have been posting a new track and accompanying music video every week to unanimous exclamations of joy from fans old and new.

In celebration, the band is releasing GLEAN on 20th April via Lojinx in Europe. It includes 16 songs direct from these first weeks of their Dial-A-Song service. The range of these recordings is truly staggering. From the manic violin-driven ‘Music Jail, Pt. 1 & 2‘ to the bluesy grinding of ‘Underwater Woman,’ Glean comprises some of They Might Be Giants’ most vital work of their 30+ year career. With the album, TMBG’s sound is in equal turns as rocking, surprising, effervescent, and truly original as they have ever been. The highly anticipated album is produced with long-time collaborator Pat Dillett (St. Vincent, Mary J. Blige, David Byrne, Donald Fagen, etc), and comes hot on the heels of 2013’s fan-favourite Nanobots.

Taylor Locke


"If you're a fan of Big Star, try this fragile, very pretty song from Rooney guitarist Taylor Lock, which is forlorn and heartbreaking and uplifting at the same time in a way that reminds us a bit of Elliott Smith or Ben Folds or Michael Penn or another one of those American songwriters. We've heard the album of the same name, which is excellent and rather more upbeat." - Classic Rock Magazine

Butch Walker album Afraid of Ghosts, on LojinxButch Walker‘s highly anticipated seventh full-length album Afraid Of Ghosts, produced by Ryan Adams, will be released on CD, LP & digital on 2nd February via Lojinx in Europe.

Following the understated infectiousness of 21+ and title track Afraid of Ghosts, Butch delved into deeper and grittier territory with his sultry single “Bed On Fire,” recently shared online. Now, he unleashes the song’s spellbinding visual companion, filmed in Joshua Tree, California, and directed by Magdalena Wosinska and Snake. Their “Bed On Fire” mini-film has a woozy, dreamlike feel whose narrative staggers from biker gangs in sprawling desert vistas to corpse-painted attackers at a party. The visual metaphors serve to transform the track from siren song to murder ballad, albeit one in which the corpse-bride exacts her bloody revenge. This cinematic, warped Western that stars three generations of Walker men – Butch, his father “Big Butch” (snapshot in the truck), and his son Jamie Blue – is not to be missed.

Butch said of the video, "It's a wild ride so buckle up. Hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it. Enjoy the madness."

Afraid of Ghosts was produced by recent fellow GRAMMY nominee Ryan Adams at his PAX AM Studios in LA along with friends & special guests including Bob Mould and Johnny Depp. The album is available to preorder now and iTunes includes 4 instant-grat tracks. With his remarkably diverse resume that includes everything from guitar god to GRAMMY and CMA nominated producer, Walker’s new LP shows both skill and tenderness.
