Gorillaz's New Album Is "Finished" & Live Rehearsals Have Started


Gorillaz member Damon Albarn has apparently told a fan that the band's upcoming album is "finished" and that they've already begun live rehearsals. Last month the group shared "Hallelujah Money" feat. UK singer-songwriter Benjamin Clementine, the first single they had released in six years. 

This exciting news surfaced via a series of tweets when a fan named Jack Winstanley intercepted Albarn outside a venue where he works. See below for the tweets:

Gorillaz has yet to confirm any of this, but it's definitely exciting to hear that what we've all been waiting for may be arriving soon. Stay tuned for more details and enjoy!

Pretty Lights Announces New Album For 2017

pretty lights new album

Longtime TSIS favorite Pretty Lights has revealed some pretty incredible news to close out 2016. 

Colorado newspaper Denver Post reports that Derek Smith (PL) will be releasing a full new studio album in early 2017. "It’s not just a music record," Smith says, "I’m actually making a film with it, as well." The exciting announcement comes after three years of fans patiently waiting for the Colorado icon to release his next body of work since Color Map of the Sun.

"I’m trying to make a film and a record that’s really about the connection of people — the amazing things that happen between people on the same frequency. It will be an episodic thing that makes a full piece. Every song has an episode."

Despite only releasing one new song over the past couple years, he's commanded things on the live front with his mesmerizing show that is truly a one-of-a-kind experience. He's continued to make his mark on top of countless festival sets, to throwing his own annual camping festival in Telluride or his new touring Episodic festival this past fall.

Smith goes on to say that the album connects to his music festival. 

"When I was booking that tour, I wanted to call it “The Weekend’s Episodic Festivals.” I didn’t know why I wanted to call it that, but it’s all going together. Every festival, we’d have a film shoot that became the building blocks of these episodic film pieces. It’s pretty (cool)."

From the sound of it, each date of his last Episodic tour will be turned into a song / episode for the album / film. We couldn't be more excited for what's to come from Pretty Lights. TSIS has reached out to get more details on the project so stay tuned. As always, enjoy!

Listen to Adventure Club's Debut Album 'Red // Blue'

AC press Album

It's been a long time coming for Adventure Club's debut album, but Red // Blue is finally here. The 12-track album captures a little bit of everything from their nostalgic, anthemic records like "Fade" feat. Zac Waters and "Limitless" feat. Delaney Jane, to new songs like "Firestorm" feat. Sara Diamond that taps deep house. 

More than anything, Red // Blue showcases the group's evolution as producers. The album caters to both the day one listeners, who first latched on to their melodic dubstep sound, and more recent fans who've been able to experience a more diverse set of releases from the duo.

Adventure Club says "Without You" feat. Hunter Siegel is the favorite track off the LP. The creative production playfully distorts Siegel's smooth vocals while launching into a unique bass-driven drop that throws dubstep-like synths into a progressive structure. There's also some new future bass sequences that glue the sections together.

"Forever" is another song added to the mix that steers away from the group's signature sound. The tune dives head first into laid-back melodic house that's perfect for a day drive. However, the duo is able to successfully bridge the gap between their classic sound design and new styles with "Dreams" feat. ELEA and their "Save Me" collaboration with Terravita, both of which are comprised of lush piano chords, warm drum kicks and echoing vocal chops.

Adventure Club takes their listeners on a journey with Red // Blue as they confidently explore a variety of genres. Stream it below and enjoy!
