We have two very different but equally splendid new releases in stores this month
Sian Alice Group - 59.59 (in-stores June 7) Debut album from London-based outfit Sian Alice Group. The band is already on the rise in its native England having opened a string of shows for Spiritualized and received a flurry of attention in the press. 59.59 is a fully realized album that moves through traditional pop songwriting and instrumental composition while tempering it with studio improvisation.
Jeremy Jay - A Place Where We Could Go (in-stores June 28) Debut album from 23 year old Jeremy Jay (pictured). A Place Where We Could Go is a statement of fiction and fact, exploring the shadowy depths of an attitude: the romance of life without the people and things that pull down the corners; create your own world. This universe may have a fairy tale look; it may be illuminated by streetlight. But it will definitely be a safe haven for the exploration of dreams.
Sian Alice Group - 59.59 (in-stores June 7) An epic record that showcases the talent and range and of this young group, taking in elements of various genres and making them their own. At a time when the musical landscape seems inundated with derivative retrogressive guitar bands, or acts reliant on sequenced beats and oscillator knobs, Sian Alice Group's more classical inclinations show their willingness to tread their own path. 59.59 features guest appearances from Douglas Hart (Jesus & Mary Chain), John Coxon (Spiritualized, Spring Heel Jack) and Brian DeGraw (Gang Gang Dance).
Jeremy Jay - A Place Where We Could Go (in-stores June 28) Think vast landscapes of reverberating storybook endings populated by the more charming characters from John Hughes' movies. Jeremy Jay: dancing, singing and playing guitar. A Place Where We Could Go is your hardcopy of the illusive, blonde, Jeremy Jay moon-roof vista. Buena.
