Johnny Marr has announced Spirit Power: The Best Of Johnny Marr for release on November 3 via BMG. The album is a personally curated collection of tracks from the last ten years of Johnny's solo career plus two brand new songs produced by Johnny Marr with his co-producer James Doviak, titled "Somewhere" and "The Answer." Released today, "Somewhere" arrives with immediate anthemic magnetism, offering an exciting glimpse of a future fan favorite.
Johnny wrote the song whilst on tour with The Killers, and Blondie, in 2022. Speaking about the track, Marr said: "I've played a lot of arenas over the years, and in terms of songwriting, there's nowhere to hide. For a song to work, it has to be a banger. I know it's almost uncool to think in those terms, but I grew up in a house where my parents listened to Motown, where you couldn't get a song released if it wasn't full of hooks." (continue)
Big Brother Recordings Ltd today announces the release of limited-edition collector's formats to celebrate the silver anniversary of Oasis' iconic album The Masterplan. Twenty-five years since the original release, November 3rd will see new formats made available including CD, cream cassette, and limited-edition double vinyl formats (heavyweight silver, green and black marble and black). The new formats feature remastered audio, taken from the Chasing The Sun reissues - available for the first time as one collection.
The Masterplan is an extraordinary collection of B-sides originally featured on singles from Oasis' era-defining first three albums, Definitely Maybe (1994), (What's The Story) Morning Glory? (1995), and Be Here Now (1997). Far from being inferior to the A-sides they backed, many of the 14 tracks that feature on The Masterplan have become as cherished as the band's biggest hits from that seminal period. Oasis was following in the tradition of artists like The Jam and The Smiths; both influences on Noel who took great care over their B-Sides. In today's streaming led musical landscape where the traditional single no longer exists, it could be argued that Oasis was the last truly great singles band, and that The Masterplan is proof of that.

Triumph Of Death proudly announce their debut live album performing the music of Hellhammer 'Resurrection Of The Flesh' to be released November 10, 2023 with noise/BMG.
The impact of Swiss extreme metal forefathers Hellhammer is one that still resonates around the global metal scene today, such was their influence on the early extreme, death, and black metal genres. In the 40 years that have passed since their humble beginnings in Nurensdorf, Switzerland, in May 1982, they have gained a mythically iconic status despite existing for a mere two years. However the band left a highly influential body of work behind, including the three demos Death Fiend, Satanic Rites and Triumph Of Death (al re-released in 2008 as the Demon Entrails demo retrospective), the seminal Apocalyptic Raids EP, and two tracks from the legendary Death Metal compilation. In light of this legacy, it is almost inconceivable that Hellhammer never performed this music on stage. (continue)

San Francisco indie rockers Warren Teagarden and The Good Grief just released their new single, "LA on My Own," and to celebrate we asked Warren to tell us about the track. Here is the story:
The focus is the relationship between the two "characters." Jessica's character is telling my character that she's leaving him, and she's presenting it as a great act of independence and self-liberation. My character isn't even reacting to what she's saying, he can't get past his impression that she's going to LA for all the wrong reasons. I think a lot of arguments are this way, the two sides aren't even really arguing about the same thing. (continue)
