The View on Yesterday, Dundee guitar band The View released a free track "Sunday" on its official website. The song is a first taste of the band's forthcoming third album, which frontman Kyle Falconer promises will be "more articulate" than previous. Listen to "Sunday" from The View here.

Speaking to Scotland's Daily Record about the album which is scheduled for a spring release, Falconer said, "The new album will sound much cleaner and you'll be able to hear my vocals a lot clearer. It's more articulate."

The Scottish band is probably beat known for its single "Same Jeans." Falconer explained that the new album will be very different from 2007 debut Hats Off to the Buskers and its follow-up Which Bitch? He added, "We were proud of Which Bitch? but it wasn't well received and didn't get played much on radio. We were gutted."

Falconer revealed that his thoughts at the time were, "'We need to get back to the music rather than the craziness'."

Previous albums Hats Off to the Buskers and Which Bitch? were produced by Owen Morris, best known for his work with Oasis and The Verve, but Martin "Youth" Glover, who has made records with the Delays and the Futureheads and was founder member and bassist of UK band Killing Joke, has been chosen to produce the third album.

Death Cab Spring Release - Features Strings and Vintage Keyboards PDF Print E-mail

Death Cab Spring Release - Features Strings and Vintage KeyboardsDeath Cab for Cutie plan a spring release for its seventh studio album which features strings and vintage keyboards. The album is "a testament to where we are as a band," Ben Gibbard explained.

"It's not a guitar-based record. We've been into vintage keyboards and playing with that palette," Founder Ben Gibbard told SPIN in an interview.  "We're not adding guitars because people will be expecting them."

"I'm so proud of this album that at this point I don't care if people don't like it," he added.

The CD is expected to comprise 12 to 13 tracks. The new project doesn't yet have a title and the band is still a "couple of weeks away" from completing it. Comparing the album to guitar-based 2008 release Narrow Stairs, Gibbard continued, "This new record has turned out to be much more of a construction project."

Hard Rock Yields to Massive Attack PDF Print E-mail

Hard Rock Yields to Massive AttackWednesday's first ever concert at Orlando's Hard Rock by British trip-hop pioneers Massive Attack was notable as much for what was omitted as for what was played. The Bristol band concentrated on its February 2010 release Heligoland, the first studio album from partners Robert "3D" del Naja and Grant "Daddy G" Marshall in seven years, making time for only one track from its 1991 debut album Blue Lines and playing nothing from 1994's Protection. There was no “Unfinished Sympathy” and no "Protection" from this Massive Attack.

Massive Attack's unyielding light show was also a significant part of the event. Distracting at times, synchronized bars of LED lights extended the width of the stage, flashing financial and socio-political statistics accompanied by apparently random text messages. The projections offered everything from statistics on global water usage, wars, and immigration, to famous quotes on civil liberties from free-thinkers, headlines from Florida news sources, and the names of multinational corporations. A relentless visual display that lent the music some gravitas, the backdrop emphasized the band's ideology, the political nature of the songs, and their enduring relevance to today's economic and political climate.

Through rising smoke and purple lighting, spotlights danced in the dark as five backing musicians (a keyboard player, two guitarists, and two drummers) played the opening bars of “United Snakes.” Founding member del Naja took center stage. Originally released as a 2006 single with "False Flags," this was dark music for dark times. As del Naja sang, the names of social drugs flashed across the screen in rapid succession.

Featured Band (1): Eastern Girls Full of Promise for London's Chapel Club PDF Print E-mail

Featured Band: Eastern Girls Full of Promise for London's Chapel ClubOne of the most encouraging offerings last week was the UK release of the new single "All the Eastern Girls" by London-based Chapel Club. The band recently headlined on the Emerge NME Radar Tour, and BBC Radio's Zane Lowe previously recognized the track as his "Hottest Record in the World," but don't expect this record to chart in The Official UK Singles Chart, which, in common with the US Billboard Hot 100, is dominated by RnB and TV talent show artists. As a foretaste of Chapel Club's debut album expected early next year, "All the Eastern Girls" is full of promise for the future.

An emerging band based in fashionable East London, Chapel Club is a guitar band that has developed its own, distinctive, trademark sound. Intense, arty, experimental and yet listenable, the melodies are expressive, generally dramatic, at times tuneful, and often dissonant, with intricate guitar riffs and hooks backed by deliberate playing and rhythmic drumming which every now and then explode into driving guitar licks and dynamic drum rolls. The lyrics, written about lust, love, and loss, are intelligent, darkly poetic, frequently pensive, sometimes reflective, and occasionally contemplative, written and sung with meticulous timing by vocalist Lewis Bowman in a soft, crooning voice which has a quality curiously reminiscent of Ian McCulloch at his finest.

Referred to as "gloomsters" by some, Chapel Club's music has been described as "Moody, majestic and magnificent" by others. Global Editor of Billboard Magazine, Mark Sutherland, described the band's sound as, "Amazing… shoegaze but with songs and balls."

The Best of Suede But Not the Last: Rarities and Unreleased Material Found PDF Print E-mail

The Best of Suede But Not the Last: Rarities and Unreleased Material FoundWhen Suede releases The Best of Suede on November 1, the album will not be its last. As reports of the 90's Britpop group working on new material and of a new record deal with Warner Music Group remain unconfirmed, a spokesperson revealed that the band has "found some rarities and unreleased material."

In response to fans' questions on Suede's website, the official said that the songs found are "just not right for this [The Best of Suede] release" and that "perhaps they will get an outing at some point."

"I can confirm that there is not a bonus disc available," she added later in the thread. The double album will also be available as a download, with a bonus filmed interview included through iTunes featuring founders Brett Anderson and Mat Osman.

Taking its name from Morrissey's "Suedehead" single and officially known as the London Suede in the United States, British music weekly Melody Maker called the group "the best new band in Britain" in 1992 - before they had released even a single. Suede "have it in them to be just about the most extraordinary, intelligent and potentially enormous guitar band this country has seen in a decade," Q Magazine said.

Last week, Indie Rock and Roll Radio made Tigers That Talked its "Featured Band." The article can be found here. To celebrate the release of the band's debut album, The Merchant, DJ Space invited founder, singer-songwriter, frontman, and guitarist Jamie Williams into his virtual studios for a cup of tea and a chat. On behalf of listeners, he also remembered to ask a few questions.

Jamie Williams had the following to say, "Thanks for getting in touch and for your questions. We are really glad that you have been enjoying the music and hope you enjoy the album that is due for release today through www.tigersthattalked.co.uk !! Hopefully we will see you one day on our travels."

Q1. Congratulations on your debut album, The Merchant. I wish you the
success your music deserves. What does the release of your first album mean
to you?

"Thank you. The album means a huge amount to us, being our first release it is all the tracks we worked on together when we came together as a band and the recording process was a wonderful experience for us all, both in terms of how much we enjoyed it and also how much we learnt about making music. Our producer, Adam Noble, imparted a lot of wisdom in those sessions and we couldn’t have got to where we are musically now without going through that."
