|Willie Nile Sets April Release|
The album was produced variously by the team of Nile with Andy York (Ian Hunter), Brad Albetta (Teddy Thompson, Martha Wainwright), Rich Pagano (Ian Hunter) and Hirsh Gardner, and by the team of Nile, his longtime friend and collaborator Frankie Lee and Stewart Lerman (Loudon Wainwright III, The Roches, Jules Shear).
For some, stardom comes early — and is often over very quickly. For others, like Willie Nile, having a career in music has meant growing wise, not adhering to fads, and learning from the cards life's dealt you. It's meant building, song by song, an integrity and artistry that attracts a zealous fan base and leads musical peers like Lucinda Williams to call Nile "a great artist" and inspires U2's Bono to sum up Streets of New York in one joyous burst: "Great Album!"

|Polly Scattergood's Hate Filled Debut Coming|
The single includes the exclusive B-side "Poem Song." "I Hate The Way" follows Scattergood's debut single "Nitrogen Pink."
Polly Scattergood is a rare talent, a musician who can make the disturbing sound delightful. Built around fractious yet delicate guitar and piano (she plays a stylophone and accordion too), and Scattergood's distinctive voice, the album is produced by Simon Fisher-Turner and Gareth Jones.
All five tracks from the digital EP are present on Long Time My Love, remixed and re-mastered, laying the foundation for the band's full-length assault on the masses.
While the debut EP was a causal introduction of The Yelling... Long Time My Love is the declaration.- more on this story
