April March is a songwriter, singer and francophone from California whose real name is Elinor Blake. She has released nine albums during her career so far, performing in both English and French.
One of her songs, Chick Habit was featured in Tarantino’s film Death Prooof. Chick habit was in fact an English translation of Serge gainsbourg’s Laisse tomber les Filles, which featured on her 1995 album Gainsbourgsion!, a collection of her interpretations of Gainsbourg’s work.
Their forthcoming album was written and recorded between Blake’s US apartment and the band’s Vallesvilles barn near Toulouse in the French countryside.
On recording there, Blake said: “On warm days we’d have the barn doors to the studio wide open so when I recorded my vocals it’d be to a random audience of birds and chickens.”
Murder Ballads & Other Love Songs is the debut album by The Heavy Horses, the pseudonym under which Canadian musician Justin Mahoney writes and records songs about outlaws, angels, and murder.The album was recorded and mixed in Toronto by Laurence Currie (Amelia Curran/Wintersleep/The Once), and features Canadian talents including Andrew Collins (Creaking Tree String Quartet, The Foggy Hogtown Boys), Max Heineman (The Foggy Hogtown Boys), Christine Bougie (The Good Lovelies, Amy Millan), and Brad Kilpatrick (Hawksley Workman), among others.Steeped in tradition, and raised on a healthy diet of “the old country”, The Heavy Horses are naturally drawn to writing in the same style of music, and make no excuses for it. Although they have never raised a pistol to a man, fled to Mexico, murdered out of love, anger, or murdered “just to watch him die” as Johnny Cash once put it, these themes are abundant in the writing.
With 3 albums, an adequately tumultuous history and a confident talent for weaving moving sincerity with backbeats that linger in your mind behind him, Ruarri Joseph presents Brother, a record overflowing with stories of the happiness that blossomed from instability.
Brother patiently encompasses both extremes of the scale of emotions: it has a clever way of breaking your heart and gluing the pieces back together in a Ben Howard sort of style. One thing that resonates loudly above the cheeriness and sorrow is a sense of maturity in the eventual optimism: as Joseph tells of parents and parenting, responsibility and adventure, love, friendship and familial ties it emerges that he has not been blinded completely by the tragedy of loss but waded through the dark times and made his own light.
From Glasgow to New Zealand to London and the journeys in between, an individual shaped by thirty years of tumultuousness and uncertainty has composed a track list that nudges emotions relatable to everyone with a flavour of solemnity and an acoustic guitar.
