Los Angeles indie-rock pioneer Day Wave (the project of singer/instrumentalist Jackson Phillips) first emerged from the Bay Area in 2015 and quickly became known for his wavy lo-fi bedroom production. Tracks like "Drag" and "Something Here" put him on a global radar, boasting hundreds of millions of streams across DSPs and creating a lane for bedroom-pop that didn't previously exist. Now Jackson returns to the forefront of the indie space with Pastlife, an album that tackles themes of love, loss, and maneuvering life in your 30s. Singles "Where Do You Go" and "Before You Knew" kicked off the project and saw notable praise from PASTE, Lyrical Lemonade, Ones To Watch, Northern Transmissions and more, spins on SiriusXM's Alt Nation Advanced Placement, KCRW, SiriusXMU and features on coveted playlists like New Music Friday, Dopamine, and Today's Indie Rock to name a few. The title track off the forthcoming album, is a blustery indie-rock number that encapsulates the sweet nostalgia of missing someone. "I think of 'Pastlife' as the thesis statement for this record, because the overall theme is reminiscing on past chapters in my life. I have so many era's from my past that I miss, and so many friends left behind in those times. I wonder if they ever think of those times the way I do. " Jackson's knack for ear-catching melodies and simple, fresh production is cherished more than ever in a world saturated with overly-produced tracks. On Pastlife, Jackson takes it back to the basics of indie- a space he's been spearheading for the past 10 years and continues to rise to the top in, producing for a new generation of indie acts like Hana Vu, Saba, Hazel English, KennyHoopla and more.

Legendary hip hop pioneer DJ Muggs and frequent David Lynch collaborator Dean Hurley join forces for the original score to the 2023 Sundance-premiering feature film Divinity. Equal parts sonically punishing and ethereal, the soundtrack delivers a unique punch that further intensifies the mind-bending, acid-trip experience of the film.

Divinity is a sci-fi dystopian odyssey produced by Steven Soderbergh and helmed by visionary director Eddie Alcazar. Set in the distant future, scientist Sterling Pierce dedicated his life to the quest for immortality, slowly making progress developing a serum named Divinity. Jaxxon Pierce, his son, now controls and profits from his father’s once benevolent dream. Society on their barren planet has been entirely perverted by the supremacy and pervasiveness of the drug. Two mysterious brothers arrive with a plan to abduct the mogul, and with the help of a woman named Nikita, they set on a trajectory hurtling toward true immortality.

Amidst the film’s extraordinary tapestry of stark aesthetics and themes, the score is a ten ton barbell of sonic weight. Crafted with 8-bit samplers, Wavestation synths, extended choir and string techniques, the soundtrack manages to swing wildly between the arenas of both music and sound design. Like all rich soundtracks, listening to the score on its own re-conjures the imagery of the film in the screen of the listener’s mind, an aural experience that manages to encapsulate and pulse a matched intensity of the film.

Tracks like ‘The Brothers’ and ‘Reflective Dreams’ cascade Vangelis-esque tones, painting with broad strokes of cinematic grandeur and ethereal wonder. ‘Main Titles’ and ‘InfinityTechno’ conversely swing hard into relentless, punishing sonics; with brutal, pulsing energy representative of the twisted, relentless pursuit of immortality. A standout of the album is undoubtedly “Divinity 2 Infinity: The Odyssey,” featuring cult hip-hop hero and lyrical-savant Kool Keith. Written for the film’s end credits, the track is a satisfying throwback to the 90’s original soundtrack cut bespoke-tailored to the film’s narrative themes.

DJ Muggs and Dean Hurley’s synergy yields a soundtrack that takes Divinity beyond the screen and into a multi-dimensional experience, inviting its listener along uncharted aural terrain for an unforgettable odyssey in sound.

Renowned musician and producer Joe Jackson unveils his latest artistic endeavour 'What A Racket!' – a new album reviving the songs of enigmatic early 20th-century English Music Hall artist Max Champion.

Music Hall (along with its American cousin, Vaudeville) was the first form of mass entertainment created by the working classes. Its raw beginnings were in the pubs and streets of mid-19th century London, and while never really considered ‘respectable’, it was, by 1900, performed in opulent theatres to huge audiences drawn from all walks of life. Prostitutes and princes alike sang along with superstar performers, many of whom are now legendary, and whose songs are still known in the UK.

Those songs, depicting everyday life in the Victorian and Edwardian eras, were most often humorous or satirical, though some were sentimental or patriotic, and others dealt with darker themes such as jealousy and murder. Many were also blatantly sexual, though always expressed in clever euphemisms and double entendres.

One of the most fascinating of the later Music Hall performers was Max Champion. Little is known about him, except that he was born in 1882 in London’s East End, and is thought to have been related to the great Victorian entertainer Harry Champion. As an up-and-coming performer he shared the stage with big stars such as Gus Ellen and Vesta Tilley, but his career (much like the Music Hall era itself) was cut short by the First World War, and his songs faded into obscurity. That is, until 2014, when Max Championsheet music started to surface: first in Malta, then in England, and, intriguingly, in Belgium, where Max probably met his end in the trenches. By 2019, enough songs had been recovered for Joe Jackson to resurrect them with a 12-piece orchestra.

'What A Racket!' presents eleven of Max Champion’s songs for the first time in more than a century. According to producer Joe Jackson, ‘These were wonderful songs in their time, but they’re surprisingly modern, too. Sometimes it’s almost as if Max is speaking, from his London of the early 20th century, directly to us in the early 21st.’

In the world of good ol' rock 'n' roll, Pittsburgh's Ghost Hounds stand out from the pack with a new spin on the traditional approach of classic rock. On their new album, First Last Time, the band channels a combination of the blues, Southern rock and Americana flavors that would light up mainstream rock radio at any point in time over the last 50 years.Much like their label, Gibson Records, Ghost Hounds are every bit as timeless as they are fresh and modern. They seamlessly manage to blur the lines between the new and the old, and it's all done with such masterful artistry and storytelling that it's hard to believe that First Last Time is only their fourth full-length album as a band. - SPIN Magazine

The original 2011 release is one of the first projects that globally focused on the golden era of Turkish popular music of the 1970s. Back then, both originals and a selection of remixes were released and created serious hype in collector scenes with rare (300 copies each) 7"s that have never been pressed again. Meanwhile, the Turkish psychedelic-folk-disco style got more popular and some collectors discovered it via this series.

Now at its 10th anniversary Nublu Records is compiling these 12 remixes under a special edition double-LP pressed on 180g purple vinyl.
