You can listen to Player Piano’s debut EP Into The Dark one Spotify. The Sunday Times said this about it:
“…it is the completeness, the fully realised grandeur of Radway’s first EP, Into the Dark, that so impresses. Evoking solo-Lennon string arrangements, the unfettered creativity of early Bowie and the Walker Brothers, and the vocal plangency of Chris Martin and Rufus Wainwright, it tugs at the heartstrings and ensnares you with the scope of its ambition.”
We’re very excited to announce that Richard James’ album All the New Highways will be released by The state51 Conspiracy label on 25th March.
Richard co-founded legendary alt-rock band Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci. This is Richard’s fourth solo album. With it he’s produced a beguiling collection of alternative, psychedelic-tinged folk; touches of Nick Drake mixing with his turn-of-the-millenium alt-rock roots. It was nominated for the Welsh Music Prize last year.
The beautiful artwork is by artist Andy Fung, who also played drums and contributed backing vocals.
We’re really excited to be releasing another outstanding album by such an accomplished artist on The state51 Conspiracy label. It will be available on CD and for download on 25th March.
In the meantime you can follow Richard on Spotify so you will be the first to hear the album the second it appears. He’s also on Twitter.
Richard’s three previous solo albums are really worth revisiting, too:
We are delighted to announce that Direction of Travel, the new album from She Makes War, will be released on The state51 Conspiracy label in April.
Direction of Travel is She Makes War’s third studio album, following Disarm (2010) and Little Battles (2012).
It’s filled with her own brand of inspirational gloom-pop, drawing on grunge and 90s alt-rock; heartfelt and bittersweet songs without so much as a grain of self-pity.
She Makes War is the prolific, hard working Bristol-based multi-instrumentalist Laura Kidd. We’re proud to be working with another outstanding artist and album on The state51 Conspiracy label. We can’t wait for the release.
She Makes War will be launching Direction of Travel in Bristol on March 26th at Thekla. We’ll be there!
