The final album from revered Canadian singer-songwriter Gordon Lightfoot, who passed away on May 1, 2023, at age 84, simply entitled At Royal Albert Hall will be released on July 14th, via Linus Entertainment, the Canadian independent label that released Lightfoot's last studio album with his band, Harmony, in 2004.

Recorded live in concert in London England at the prestigious Royal Albert Hall on May 24, 2016, the double album set is an unembellished live mix of that night's performance, without edits, overdubs, remixing, or re-sequencing. It captures every song performed in the order they were played, right down to the encore, by Gordon and his band - Rick Haynes on bass, Barry Keane on drums, Mike Heffernan on keys, and Carter Lancaster on guitar. It features Lightfoot's best-known hits, and songs never previously appearing on a live album, including "The Watchman's Gone", "Sea of Tranquility", "Now And Then", "All The Lovely Ladies", "Drifters", "Beautiful", "Did She Mention My Name", "Sweet Guinevere", "Never Too Close", "Don Quixote", "Minstrel of the Dawn", "I'd Rather Press On" and "Waiting For You".

Oxbow recently announced the arrival of their first new music in six years with the forthcoming release of Love's Holiday (July 21, Ipecac Recordings). The band share their second single, and video, from the forthcoming collection with today's release of "Icy White & Crystalline".

Directed by Northern Irish filmmaker Kiran Acharya, the video for "Icy White & Crystalline" shows OXBOW as you've never seen them before, performing in San Francisco on the disused set of The Snow Queen. The video not only captures the band's ferocious live energy, but literally shows them in a new light. "'Icy White & Crystalline' is about as spontaneous as filmmaking can be," says Acharya. "We had many ideas on the go, including an abstract graphic approach inspired by the work of Josef Albers, but Eugene found the set of The Snow Queen with 24 hours to go and said 'this is the place.' We loaded in, set it up as live, strapped an icicle to the microphone and went for it." The result speaks to OXBOW's formidable reputation as performers, showcasing one of the most direct songs on Love's Holiday. Neither the band nor director knew how things would turn out, joking that they ended up with something like "'Shiny Happy People,' directed by David Lynch." (continue)

Canadian singer-songwriter Liam Barrack recent released his Ryan Worsley produced single "Bulletproof". We asked him to tell us about the track to celebrate. Here is the story:

This song started with me reflecting upon the barriers we put up between ourselves and others. For many of us, it's common to compare ourselves to those around us, and feel as though the things and people that we want are out of our reach. We think to ourselves that to get what we want requires something we lack, so we desperately fight what feel like pointless battles. (continue)
