BLUE OCTOBER is the Texas-based band known for its shimmering melodies and heart-string pulling lyrics, boasting a powerful line-up of players and one of the most emotionally charged and magnetic front men in music today in Justin Furstenfeld.
Blue October has charted eight Top 40 singles over seven albums with songs like “Into The Ocean”, “Hate Me”, “Calling You”, “Dirt Room”, “Say It”, “Bleed Out” and “Fear” from albums such as 2009’s Billboard Top 200 #13 debut Approaching Normal, 2011’s Billboard #8 debut Any Man In America, the Platinum-selling Foiled and most recently Billboard’s #13 debut Sway, reaching audiences around the world.
On April 22nd, 2016, Blue October will release their 8th studio album, titled Home. This album was co-produced by Justin Furstenfeld and Tim Palmer and features mixes from Tim Palmer and Mark Needham.
“Sway was about finding inner peace and learning to live in a healthy way,” says Furstenfeld. “This new album Home is about what we do with our time on earth, how we’re going to utilize that time in a positive way and make it the best we possibly can by bettering ourselves.”
danny malone is a multitude of sounds coming from austin, tx. it also may be the name of the mastermind behind the beautiful chaos and sexy-depression you feel from this three piece wall of sound.
in a dark room, down the stairs and into a basement full of thought and diligent work, you will find danny malone, charley siess and kenni hede.
the latest release, speeddreamer, was recorded on a 4-track cassette tape recorder (a tascam 424) in a barn in total isolation. for 2 months, staying up all the live long night and working all the long gone days, writing and recording the entire album. some songs, like “black cat” “haunted, my only” and “olympia2”, were written and recorded in the same day. this is one for the headphone junkies. it’s a slow burn.
an album to which one might turn down the lights, lay on the floor, and break up with a lover.
it’s certainly a lo-fi departure from malone’s previous albums, which were, fundamentally, folk based songs, with starkly different, but respectively hi-fi production. cuddlebug being, at times, f***ing rock ‘n’ roll, and at others, a nostalgic acoustic guitar driven album. balloons, in stark contrast, took an insane turn. it became a future-folk, sexy-depression, dancey – and dark album. made in a haunted castle in denmark, it’s innumerable layers of naturally reverb soaked vocals from the walls of the castle, and found object rhythms (i.e. hand claps, foot stomps, piano-lid-slamming, percussive breathing, etc… no drums were used at all actually) made a truly unique and new sound like nothing else out there. and that’s no exaggeration. it is distinctly its own.
and now! the unmistakable, lo-fi soundscape of speeddreamer is, likewise, comparable to nothing else, while retaining the undeniable soul and stamp of danny malone.
