Divus Julius presents…Warhaus

Warhaus, the solo side project of Maarten Devoldere (songwriter and core member of acclaimed indie act Balthazar), have released their new self-titled album, Warhaus,  For his second solo Warhaus album in as many years, Maarten Devoldere comes on like a millennial Leonard Cohen, singing deep, dark and groove-ridden songs of love and hate, oozing romance and searing brutality in the same breath. Written largely on the road — as well as on a retreat in Kyrgyzstan with no one but a local shepherd for company — Maarten’s creative fires burned very bright indeed in the run-up to the new album.

Divus Julius presents…Matt Maltese

Over the past year Londoner Matt Maltese has been crafting epic-sounding ballads inspired by his love of Leonard Cohen from his bedroom. Now, having signed a deal with Atlantic Records, the 20-year-old singer-songwriter has released his first single of 2017 : “As The World Caves In” taps into the sense of despair felt by many following the outcome of the U.S. election and Britain’s E.U. referendum in 2016 and adds a sense of melodrama and beauty.

Music by Bergman: Magnolia Shoals

One of the most promising bands in Denmark these days, Magnolia Shoals, released their debut album, “Tenants”. The compositions are balanced – the sad, melancholic vocals give them depth. Many Danish bands are masters at ‘melancholy’, but Magnolia Shoals manages to take it to a higher level by incorporating classical instruments like violin, cello and trumpet, mix it with lyrics filled with symbolism and trump it with baritone-voice, which is not really so many out there. Each song has so many layers created by classical instruments, as well as the highly delicate use of electronic tools, almost barely heard, yet present. The perfection of the whole is fulfilled by the lyrics.

The four Danes: Nicolai Noa (vocal), Thomas Halkier (bass), Kristian Lorenzen (drums) og Samuel Medina (guitar), have always tried to do things their way and with a pace that suits them and not surrender to hype and dive into the first offer served. If you’re a fan of The National, Nick Cave, Leonard Cohen, Sigur Ros and Tindersticks – then you’re already a fan of Magnolia Shoals!Tonight in concert at Antiga Fàbrica Damm of Barcelona

 

Best Covers: The Last Shadow Puppets “Is This What You Wanted”

There were eight years between the debut from The Last Shadow Puppets, The Age of the Understand, and this past April’s Everything You’ve Come to Expect. But fans will have barely waited eight months before the British group drops their next effort, as they’ve today announced a December 2nd release for The Dream Synopsis EP.

Coming via Domino, the five-track effort features new versions of the title track and “Aviation”, both tunes from their sophomore LP. The rest of the songs are studio versions of covers the band has been performing on their 2016 tour. Included “Is This What You Wanted” by Leonard Cohen.
