Lead singer of British band Yuck and a very good friend and producer of Japanese indie band Luby Sparks eponymous 2018 debut album, In February, British indie rockers Yuck shared news of their breakup. Now, vocalist/guitarist Max Bloom has announced a new solo album titled Pedestrian, out June 18th via Bloom’s own label Ultimate Blends.
Bloom started recording the album over the past year after getting to running, a passion he shared with a regular group of musicians including Spoon, Beck, and Yellow Magic Orchestra. Their influence — plus Wilco, George Harrison, and Grandaddy — served as his primary inspiration for the project’s sound.

“Everybody’s Got to Learn Sometime” is a hit ballad single written by James Warren and first performed by the pop band The Korgis, of which Warren was lead singer. He has said it took only 10 or 15 minutes to write, literally singing the first thing to come into his mind, as he played both the chords and melodies on the piano. Warren has also said producer David Lord added the big arrangement and strings.
In 2014, Beck also covered the song for the Michel Gondry film Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. This cover was also used at the end of episode 12 of the TV series Dollhouse and in episode 4 of Luther.
The smooth, hypnotic voice of the Syrian singer and composer Bedouine, whose real name is Azniv Korkejian, could be compared with that of Karen Dalton, Minnie Riperton or Laura Marling. The leisurely echoes of Bohemian folk from the 60s, served up as if they were infusions of bossa nova, are capable of fully attracting the listener. Her debut album, which bears her name, was produced by Gus Seyffert (Beck, Norah Jones, The Black Keys). In Barcelona she will present her second album, Bird Songs of a Killjoy on Saturday 21st of September at 9PM at Pça Joan Coromines.
Happy artists families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way. Until Rest, this reference to a quote from Tolstoy had no relevance when talking about Charlotte Gainsbourg. Her childhood was blissfully free and very early on she demonstrated that she was a extremely talented actress and her solo records were marvellous pop caprices with illustrious Gainsbourgettes invited to collaborate: Beck, Jarvis Cocker, Air and Neil Hannon. Serge and Jane’s daughter did, however, cross the shadow line in 2013. The death of her sister Kate Barry undeniably influenced her music and four years later came Rest, an album of grief, which is on the same level as its counterparts by Nick Cave, Mount Eerie and Sufjan Stevens. If before Charlotte was already able to sublimate tragic beauty simply by pushing her fringe off her face with the back of her hand, the interpretation of this quasi R&B repertoire will certainly trigger the Stendhal syndrome in the audience.
