A re-cut version of Roy Head's 1965 classic "Treat Her Right" feat. Radio Birdman's Deniz Tek is used in the Once Upon A Time in Hollywood
Says Deniz Tek about the updated version of Roy Head's "Treat Her Right"
"A few years ago, I was asked to go to Sugar Hill Studios in Houston, Texas and record a new version of the 1965 hit “Treat Her Right” with Roy Head. The version was true to the original in many ways. Andy “Mort” Bradley engineered and produced the session. The original bass player and songwriter, Gene Kurtz was on hand to play on the track and make sure that we did it right, including specifying the exact tempo. Roy has often said that it was his favorite version of the song."

Watch the trailer for Once Upon A Time in Hollywood below followed by the 2011 version of "Treat Her Right" and a vintage clip of Roy on Hollywood A-Go-Go.

Niger based songwriter / guitarist Mdou Moctar brings his contemporary electronic adaptions of traditional Tuareg guitar music to Mississauga. Touring behind his newest studio record, Ilana: The Creator with a full band, Moctar's music has come a long way from the West African trading network of cellphones & memory cards that spurred his fame & his starring role in the Nigerien re-invention of "Purple Rain" aka "Akounak Tedalat Taha Tazoughai," which translates as "Rain the Color of Red with a Little Blue In It." Constantly evolving the forms of Tuareg music Moctar's latest venture sees him dip into psych trance territory. Guitar grooves swirl in a never ending dance with each other, only breaking out into blistered solos over a locked in rhythm section. True desert psych the band prods forward as vocal pattern slip upward into a guitar fuelled heat sink. Merging western rock shredding with the patience & momentum of Tuareg folk tradition, Moctar creates a unique & lasting sonic world.

Pantayo is an all-women lo-fi R&B gong punk queer collective based in Toronto, combining percussive metallophones and drums from the kulintang traditions of southern Philippines with synth-based electro grooves

DJ / mood masher / creative soul Raf Reza (Cosmic Resonance Records) blends sonic landscapes together with ease, merging dance floor momentos with shifting synth nodes and airy nods. Percussive notes shuffle as organ swells move under sparkling electronic pulses. Though Reza's dance floor sensibilities shine, he also drops in for the long game building kraut inspired synth droners, full of climbing electronic patterns and glowing cosmic hums. Synthetic notes decay in a forest of minimalist inspired beats. Meditative moods grow into distorted grooves, lost post punk guitar licks, busted beats, zapping synths slap back on themselves. Raf brings the party, the choice vibe, the rejuvenation zone & so much more. Hang late for the post vibes party!

Iggy Pop releases his new album Free on September 6th

It seems like coffee zombie Iggy Pop could've used some of his own signature blend prior to recording his new Free album. Listen to the title track.

Here's the scoop...
Iggy Pop has confirmed the title and release date of his new album, Free, the follow-up to 2016’s Post Pop Depression, will be released on September 6 on Loma Vista and is available for pre-order right here.

While it follows the highest charting album of Iggy’s career, Free has virtually nothing in common sonically with its predecessor—or with any other Iggy Pop album. Free, the eponymously titled first track, is now available to stream and purchase on all platforms. Listen to it below.

On the process that led Iggy and principal players, Leron Thomas and Noveller, to create this uniquely somber and contemplative entry in the Iggy Pop canon, Iggy says,

"This is an album in which other artists speak for me, but I lend my voice... By the end of the tours following Post Pop Depression, I felt sure that I had rid myself of the problem of chronic insecurity that had dogged my life and career for too long. But I also felt drained. And I felt like I wanted to put on shades, turn my back, and walk away. I wanted to be free. I know that’s an illusion, and that freedom is only something you feel, but I have lived my life thus far in the belief that that feeling is all that is worth pursuing; all that you need – not happiness or love necessarily, but the feeling of being free. So this album just kind of happened to me, and I let it happen."

Davina & The Vagabonds release animated clip for "Devil Horns"

"Devil Horns" appears on Davina & The Vagabonds' forthcoming Sugar Drops album on Red House due August 2nd.

Here's the scoop...
Davina and the Vagabonds have just released a new song called “Devil Horns” with a music video directed by Scottish animator Gordon Howie, who drew inspiration from mid-century animations for the overall style as the heroine of the video matches wits with a suave, cocktail-drinking, rug-cutting Satan. “Devil Horns” comes right before the release of Davina and the Vagabonds' new album, Sugar Drops, out next Friday, August 2nd available right here.

Howie, who’s worked  with the likes of BBC and National Geographic, is a huge fan of Davina and the Vagabonds and created a stylish, animated masterpiece that plays like a short film. Watch it below.

“DATV songs always paint a really vivid picture when I listen, and I've always thought they'd work well animated," shares Gordon. "When I heard that the new album was in the works, I chanced my luck and contacted to ask if they'd be interested in an animated music video. 'Devil Horns' was the perfect song to work with, as it has a great rhythm, vibrant energy and fun lyrics. I enlisted the help of Glasgow based character artist, Ioana Tibuleac, to help bring the devil and the heroine designs to life. This was such a fun project to create and I can't wait for everyone to enjoy this exciting collaboration.”

Says Davina, “What an absolute gift to have the opportunity to bring this cheeky story to life through Gordon’s animation. We all have had the Devil drop in unannounced, right?  FYI - I got my horns back. They are safely tucked under my bed, in a locked box, only to bring them out when deemed absolutely necessary.”

The recording of Sugar Drops was the first time singer/songwriter/pianist Davina Lozier entered a proper studio to record an album. The Altoona-born, Minneapolis-based artist holed up in Nashville’s Compass Sound Studio with producer (and Compass Records co-founder) Garry West, along with her trumpeter, string arranger and husband, Zack Lozier, and a rotating cast of powerhouse players including bassist Todd Phillips (David Grisman, Robbie Fulks), guitarist Doug Lancio (Patty Griffin, John Hiatt, Tom Jones) and Reese Wynans (Stevie Ray Vaughan, Joe Bonamassa) on Hammond B3.

The Replacements' Dead Man's Pop package reimagines Don't Tell A Soul

The Replacements' Dead Man's Pop 4 CD + LP + cassette box set – including five songs cut with Tom Waits – is due Sept 27 from Rhino. 

Here's the scoop from Rhino...
Back in 1987, Minneapolis rock and roll renegades The Replacements famously stole their Twin/Tone master tapes and threw them in the Mississippi River. A year later—while wrapping up work on their Warner Bros. album, Don't Tell A Soul—the group absconded with a collection of their reels from Paisley Park studios. Thankfully, those tapes were spared a watery fate, and instead stashed away for decades by the band. Now they’ve been recovered to form the basis of The Replacements first-ever boxed set, DEAD MAN’S POP.

Although Don’t Tell A Soul ultimately became the group’s best-selling effort, The Replacements were unsatisfied with the sound of the record. The band has radically reimagined Don’t Tell A Soul to create a 4CD/1LP set that features the album mixed as it was originally intended (Don’t Tell A Soul Redux), along with a collection of previously unheard tracks (We Know The Night: Rare & Unreleased), and a classic concert from 1989 (The Complete Inconcerated Live).

The box features a newly completed mix of the album by Don’t Tell A Soul producer Matt Wallace (based on his 1988 Paisley Park mix); a disc of unreleased recordings (including a session with Tom Waits); plus the band’s entire June 2, 1989 show at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. In total, the box includes 60 tracks–58 of which have never been heard before.

Presented in a 12 x 12 hardcover book – loaded with dozens of rarely seen photos - the set features a detailed history of the Don’t Tell A Soul era written by Bob Mehr, who produced the box with Rhino’s Jason Jones, and also authored The New York Times bestseller Trouble Boys: The True Story of the Replacements.

Mehr writes: “While it’s impossible to unhear a record that’s been around for three decades, this version, Don’t Tell A Soul Redux, is the album the band made and intended to release. In addition to Matt Wallace’s mix, Redux also restores several crucial elements from the sessions, including original drums tracks, vocal takes and tempos that were altered in post-production…[and] the band’s original sequence of the album.”

Wallace says: “The true spirit of The Replacements was always there on the recordings we did back in 1988, and now you can hear and feel it clearly…This was the project of a lifetime for me when we recorded it 30-plus years ago, and it’s even truer today as we’ve finally fulfilled our original vision.”

Paul Westerberg, Slim Dunlap, Tommy Stinson and Chris Mars started recording Don’t Tell A Soul in June 1988 with Tony Berg at Bearsville Studios, but the chaotic sessions were cut short and mothballed. Nine unreleased tracks from Bearsville appear on Dead Man’s Pop, including early versions of “I’ll Be You,” “Darlin’ One” and “Achin’ To Be” and the previously unheard “Last Thing in the World.” The collection also features tracks the band recorded with Tom Waits, five of which have never been officially released: among them, “Lowdown Monkey Blues,” “We Know The Night” and a cover of Billy Swan’s “I Can Help.”

The final two CDs of Dead Man’s Pop capture the band performing live in Milwaukee during the “Don’t Tell A Soul Tour.” A few songs from the concert originally appeared on the promo-only EP Inconcerated Live (1989), but the bulk of the 29 tracks included have never been released. The entire show has been newly mixed by Brian Kehew (Ramones, The Faces).

This limited edition and exclusive bundle comes with a 14-track cassette featuring highlights from the box along with two additional unreleased tracks: the outtake “Asking Me Lies” and an instrumental of “I Won’t” (Bearsville Version). The cassette also features the original, unused cover art for Don’t Tell A Soul.

Additionally, Dead Man’s Pop will include Wallace’s Don’t Tell A Soul Redux mix on 180-gram vinyl.

Pre-order The Replacements' Dead Man's Pop package directly from Rhino right here. See the complete track list after the clips.
