JASON MOLINA – The Black Sabbath Covers

This coveted 7″ release is TOTALLY SOLD OUT on pre-order online – so keep your peppers wide for any copies arriving in local stores for November 24th!!

The 7″ features covers of Black Sabbath tracks “Solitude” and “Snowblind.”

Recorded in the Midwest in the late ’90s, the intimate takes on these songs serve as bittersweet artifacts of the late singer-songwriter, as well as an ode to Molina’s longtime love of metal. Here, he takes Black Sabbath’s songs and makes them singularly Molina, his own personal and artistic mythology looming large over visceral, brooding tracks.

Molina extracts Ozzy Osbourne‘s cooed vocals and transforms it into his signature high and lonesome sound, an eternal campfire howler on “Solitude,” from 1971’s Master of Reality. On “Snowblind,” taken from 1972’s Vol. 4, the influence of Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi on Molina’s catalogue of work suddenly becomes obvious. Side B of the 7? features an etching of a black ram by longtime Molina album artwork artist, William Schaff.

In addition to the standalone physical and digital 7?, Secretly Canadian is also offering The Jason Molina Covers 7? Bundle, comprised of both The Black Sabbath Covers and The Townes Van Zandt Covers 7?, which was originally released for Record Store Day 2016. The bundle also includes a baseball tee featuring the original ram head etching by artist William Schaff, as shown on the cover art.

Garage is back! Kurupt FM – Suttin Like That

KURUPT FM
The Lost Tape released 17 November
Share new single ‘Suttin’ Like That’

Having already made history by single-handedly bringing back UK Garage, Kurupt FM have decided to do it again with the greatest mix ever recorded – according to them. 

Taken from this legendary Lost Tape set, which was broadcast live on Kurupt FM 108.9 and was recorded onto cassette tape by an anonymous listener, ‘Suttin’ Like That’ is a 100% Kurupt original. MC Grindah says of the track “EVRY 2 OR 3 YEARS WE DROP A  NEW SINGLE. NOW IS THAT TIME.? SUTTIN LIKE THAT! MAKE SURE YOU COP DAT.”

With the music video premiering via BBC One’s new ‘Sounds Like Friday Night’ show, ‘Suttin’ Like That’ kicks off the hype of The Lost Tape and goes some way towards proving it’s legendary status.

Once lost in a backpack in deepest Brentford, The Lost Tape has now been uncovered, remixed and mastered for the very first time. A journey across an entire CD, the tape documents the seminal tracks which have shaped club culture from Hammersmith Boulevard to the Champagne Steam Rooms.

Get ready for Kurupt FM to change the course of music history, yet again.

NZ’S fave party duo – Hopetoun Brown are BACK!

Hopetoun Brown

Return with a whole lotta hootin’ goodness!

Listen to new track ‘You Know I Know’
(feat. Sophie Burbery)

See Hopetoun Brown live with Finn Scholes
at WOMAD 2018!

Friday 20th October 2017 – In their brand new song ‘You Know I Know’, our favourite horn-tootin’ pair Hopetoun Brown ditch the stomp to share a drum-machine driven party saga about a weed-smokin’ womaniser.

In this speedy rap duet, the Hopetoun boys called up their neighbourhood synth scientist and MC, Sophie Burbery and Weird Together percussionist/bongo player Issac Chadderton. Alto sax player Callum Passells completes the lineup, playing a blistering solo in the first verse before a one-take improvised duel with Nick Atkinson’s tenor for the finale.

Curiously, Atkinson is also on lead-singer duties as Hopetoun Brown explore new sounds. Brass player and Hopetoun Brown’s usual singer Tim Stewart will be back on the mic soon enough, but for now, he’s overseeing production duties with the mercurial engineer Jol Mulholland, who recorded ‘You Know I Know’ at The Oven in Mt Eden.

Also just announced – Hopetoun Brown are excited to be on this year’s artist lineup for WOMAD NZ, held in Taranaki’s idyllic Brooklands Park. They will be joined on stage by trumpet wunderkind, Finn Scholes for Taranaki’s biggest knees-up this March 16-18th. Come and party with our favourite pair, and stay tuned for more upcoming show dates!
