Makaya McCraven - Black Rhythm Happening

With his new remix album, Deciphering The Message, the Chicago-based drummer, producer, and beat scientist Makaya McCraven puts a modern bounce on Blue Note classics by Art Blakey, Horace Silver, and Hank Mobley, among others. Today, McCraven has unveiled the album’s fourth and final single “Black Rhythm Happening,” which is a funky remake of the title track of a 1969 album by the adventurous trumpeter and Sun Ra associate Eddie Gale. Deciphering The Message will be released November 19 on vinyl, CD, and digital download. Stream the playlist Deciphering The Message: The Originals.
McCraven hopes the album is both educational and an outright good listen. “I always want to make music that will connect with people in one way, where it makes them nod or feel something or transport them somewhere,” he says. “I also hope this makes them check out the source of this music. The music that we’re making now is part of the same route and is connected, so I want to honor tradition and release something that people can vibe to.”
Across numerous albums and mixtapes, McCraven has proven his mastery of the loop akin to hip-hop’s most celebrated beatmakers like Madlib and J Dilla, both of whom also found inspiration in the Blue Note catalog. With acclaimed releases like In The Moment (2015) and Universal Beings (2018), McCraven created his own lane in jazz by sampling his band playing improvised sessions throughout the world, then molding the audio several times to pull contrasting moods from it. For his previous project McCraven remixed Gil Scott-Heron’s final album I’m New Here into the equally emotive LP We’re New Again (2020).
The track listing for Deciphering The Message is as follows:
1. A Slice Of The Top (AKA “Sliced Off The Top”)
[from A Slice Of The Top by Hank Mobley]
2. Sunset (AKA “Son Set”)
[from Whistle Stop by Kenny Dorham]
3. When Your Lover Has Gone (AKA “When You’ve Left Your Lover”)
[from A Night In Tunisia by Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers]
4. Ecaroh (AKA “Revlis”)
[from Horace Silver Trio by Horace Silver]
5. Tranquillity (AKA “Corner Of The World”)
[from Components by Bobby Hutcherson]
6. Wail Bait (AKA “Wait Bail”)
[from The Memorial Album by Clifford Brown]
7. Coppin' The Haven (AKA “At The Haven Coppin’”)
[from One Flight Up by Dexter Gordon]
8. Frank's Tune (AKA “De’Jeff’s Tune”)
[from Easterly Winds by Jack Wilson]
9. Autumn In New York (AKA “Spring In Chicago”)
[from Blue Lights, Vol.1 by Kenny Burrell]
10. Monaco (AKA “Monte Negro”)
[from ‘Round About Midnight At The Cafe Bohemia by Kenny Dorham]
11. Mr. Jin (AKA “Mr. Gin”)
[from Indestructible by Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers]
12. C.F.D. (AKA “D.F.C.”)
[from Something Personal by Jack Wilson]
13. Black Rhythm Happening
[from Black Rhythm Happening by Eddie Gale]

Poo Bear - Distant Shore (Official Lyric Video)



Poo Bear, one of the music industry’s most successful creative forces, has released his new single “Distant Shore.” Co-written by himself, Nabeel Y. Zahid, Sasha Sirota, Luis Manuel Martinez and Michael Michael, and co-produced by himself, Sasha Sirota, and SHDNO the song encapsulates that of a siren’s call. Poo Bear sings, “From across the vast and open sea / Was it your sole mission to enchant me? / From across the ocean’s wide expanse / You’ve drawn me into your mystical trance.” Between his impassioned vocal and the track’s electronic, upbeat energy he has created the perfect song to dance to all night long. This is the first track of many, as an album is on its way. 

Watch the lyric video Here

"It’s about a forbidden love,” Poo Bear says. “Every time we think we’ve reached her, we wake up to the reality that she was only a dream."

Earlier this year Poo Bear released “The Day You Left.” Co-written with Nabeel Y. Zahid and co-produced by himself, Skrillex and Sasha Sirota the song captures loss in all its forms. He also announced his joint venture agreement with Def Jam Recordings, a sub-label of Universal Music Group, for his label Bearthday Music. 

Poo Bear greets everyone by saying, “Happy Birthday. For as unexpected as it may be, it always incites a smile. Then again, everything about the two-time GRAMMY® Award-nominated singer, songwriter, producer, and entrepreneur is just as unpredictable. His gracious demeanor belies a downright unbelievable career. Earmarked by blockbuster smashes such as Justin Bieber’s “What Do You Mean?”, Usher’s “Caught Up,” Dan + Shay’s “10,000 Hours,” and Chris Brown’s “I Can Transform Ya” [feat. Lil Wayne & Swizz Beatz] as well as the 13-times platinum “Despacito (Remix)” [feat. Justin Bieber] for Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee, his catalog has registered sales of over 350 million records worldwide, dozens of multi-platinum certifications, and 100 billion streams and counting. 

At the same time, his entrepreneurial portfolio includes Black Star Burger, HFACTOR water, 3D Live, Wonderbrett dispensary, and gaming team 100 Thieves. Plus, he gives back by running a toy drive with the LAPD. Everything Poo Bear does might just make you feel like it’s your birthday too.

I CAN HURT ALL THE TIME by Tombstones In Their Eyes on Kitten Robot Records

Following the release of their critically-hailed, neo-psychdelic post-punk album Looking For A Light earlier this year, Kitten Robot recording artists TOMBSTONES IN THEIR EYES (TITE) have now released a striking video for the track "I Can Hurt All The Time."

Shot in black and white, the cinematic video serves as a metaphor for the song's themes of depression and anxiety, featuring an unknown man covered in cracked body paint clawing at himself underwater in pain. Interspersed with footage of various dying flowers and a desolate, foggy forest fire, the footage projects the isolation and feeling of hopelessness that accompanies bouts of mental illness.

"The lyrics for 'I Can Hurt All The Time' were written, like almost all of my lyrics, in a stream of consciousness, singing and keeping whatever words come out the first time," says vocalist/guitarist John Treanor. "In this case, only one line was tweaked to better suit the song. So, this is what came out of my subconscious that night. And, having suffered from depression, it outlines a feeling that I have experienced: depressed, exhausted from not feeling 'good' and yearning for a good day."

"The music video was done by a gentleman name Jakub, who lives in Poland, and goes by the moniker Chariot of Black Moth," continues John. "He chooses the imagery based on the content of the song and in this case, at least, nailed it perfectly."

Attracting fans of desert rock, shoegaze, goth, and neo-garage without aligning themselves directly with any these camps, TITE have been creating a fuzzed-out, psychedelic swirl for the past few years. Now with Looking For A Light, TITE have shifting their sound ever-so-slightly while elevating it up a few notches. It is an album swathed in thick fuzz that allows its melodies to shine bright.  

John concludes, "Like our other songs that deal with depression, the desire is that other folks out there who suffer similarly can relate with the feelings, know that they are not alone and that there is hope."
Tombstones In Their Eyes is John Treanor (vocals, guitar, keyboards), Stephen Striegel (drums, percussion), Josh Drew (bass, guitar), Paul Boutin (guitar, bass) and James Cooper (synths, midi-drum programming).  Looking For A Light was produced by Paul Roessler and is out now via Kitten Robot Records / Somewherecold Records.

Tim Kelly - "Leave This Town" (Feat. Ruston Kelly)

Tim Kelly announced Ride Through the Rain, his debut album produced by his son, acclaimed artist Ruston Kelly. The album is out on November 5 and includes nine original songs spanning from his teenage years to the present day, showcasing Kelly as an artist with relatable real-life songs and a perspective honed over decades. In addition to the announcement, Tim Kelly has offered the album’s first single, “Leave This Town,” along with a live performance of the song featuring Ruston. 

“’Leave This Town’ goes from contemplating a decision to walk away from the familiar, from roots and relationships, to actually doing it, making a major life change with all the uncertainty that goes with it,” explains Kelly, “If the soul is the truth of who we are, then music is the path to the soul for me.” 

Drawing on modern sounds as well as the ‘70s songwriters he admires, Tim Kelly is realizing a lifelong dream with Ride Through the Rain. Telling his story in thoughtful songs such as “Leave This Town,” Kelly fulfils the promise he showed many years ago, before he traded his musical ambitions for a manufacturing career that provided for his family but never quite fed his soul. “I kept the day job, but there have been very few days in my life that music hasn’t been some part of it, even if only for an hour,” Kelly says. So, after more than three decades of multi-year work assignments across eight states and Europe, he stepped away, trading an office for a writer’s room in Nashville. After touring with Ruston as his pedal steel guitarist and playing on his last two albums, Kelly was prodded by his son to finally make a record that captured his own expressive voice. 

“Seeing this album come to life is a dream come true for both of us. I’ve tried to get him to record these songs for years, over many breakfasts and many conversations on tour,” says Ruston. “His songs are the reason I write songs. They are masterfully written and beautifully performed by a man who has really seen it all. It’s pretty rare for a father’s album to be produced by his son and I definitely don’t take it for granted how special that is. I’m just so proud of him as my dad, as a person, and as an artist fulfilling a lifelong dream.” 

Tim Kelly first became curious about the guitar after hearing his brother’s vinyl copy of The Ventures’ Walk, Don’t Run. Later, after hearing Jackson Browne’s version of “Take It Easy” for the first time, Kelly was inspired to learn pedal steel guitar. As a young adult, he played in bands, joined his college pop and jazz ensemble as lead guitarist, and won talent competitions as a singer-songwriter around Texas. However, as a newlywed, he made the decision to follow in his father’s footsteps and take a job in the company where his father had worked for decades.

“I’m incredibly fortunate and grateful to be able to make a record at this point in my life,” says Kelly, “and I don’t think it’s the last thing that I’ll do.”
