    2014 Forest Hills Drive

    J. Cole, the Grammy nominated and platinum selling rapper, has released details on his third full length LP 2014 Forest Hills Drive via Roc Nation / Columbia. The album name is derived from the address of his actual childhood home in Fayetteville, North Carolina. The project is a meditation on the value of love relative to worldly success. The 2014 Forest Hills Drive house marked a change for a young Cole and it spawned his path in rap. With an elevated sense of domestic pride (from trailer park to tree-lined street) to actually having privacy for the first time (his own room) this proved an instrumental time and the story flourishes from there. The house, eventually foreclosed on when Cole was still too young to help, was recently purchased back by him this past fall (his first property purchase) and he promptly invited fans to come and listen to the album at the end of November before anyone (including his label and press.)


    J. Cole chose to forgo a traditional industry album rollout in order to have it be a more personal experience for his fans. He wanted the album to be ingested as a whole. He wanted to limit pre-album hype and context. There were no singles released leading up to release and no early promotion to garner press. He wanted it to be pure for fans and he wanted the tale to be heard by them first and the perception to be personal and theirs alone.

    4 Your Eyez Only

    J. Cole's fourth album arrived exactly two years after 2014 Forest Hills Drive. Told in the first person, most of its tracks trace the life trajectory of Cole's slain friend, as someone who dealt drugs, changed course after falling in love, and died at the age of 22. Cole also draws from some aspects of his own life. One track regards an unjustified SWAT raid on a house he rented for recording, leaving him feeling targeted, Even when the president jam your tape. There's a moment of levity and sweetness throughout Foldin Clothes, where Cole enthusiastically handles some domestic duties, while the two parts of She's Mine regard, respectively, his wife and daughter.


    Most moving and forthright is the closing title track, nine minutes of grimly focused reflections from multiple vantage points. Cole's predominant scarred yet resolute feeling, perfectly conveyed in his downward, furrowed gaze in the album's promotional images, is likewise reflected with the productions. Mostly slow and nuanced, cooked up with a crew of well over a dozen co-producers, they involve instrumental help from the likes of trumpeter Theo Croker, guitarist Steve Lacy of the Internet, and keyboardist Masayuki Hirano.

    Tough Love

    Jessie Ware first entered our consciousness as a breath of fresh air amidst the then current climate of female pop back in 2012 with the release of her
    delicately soulful debut album 'Devotion'. Recorded with little fanfare in low-key sessions with Dave Okumu of The Invisible, it became one of the most
    critically acclaimed albums of the year, lauded by everyone from Pitchfork to Heat Magazine and nominated for the Mercury Prize. As a solo artist she
    was also nominated for two Brits in 2013- Breakthrough and British Female. Plaudits were followed by an ever-expanding fanbase, meaning Ware was
    constantly on tour as she gained millions of new devotees from across the world. The mania of Jessie's schedule that ensued post release of 'Devotion'
    poetically led to the creation of her already brilliantly received lead single from the new album 'Tough Love'.


    The record's executive producers are BenZell (a new production duo made up of PMR labelmate Two Inch Punch and Katy Perry and Ke$ha super-producer Benny Blanco). You can hear the leaps in production and songwriting that come with experience and an expanded team. While the record still
    draws on the suave, svelte palette of synths and bass heard on 'Devotion', they're combined with more confident choruses and lush arrangements.
    Jessie's stunning vocal is brought to the fore - it often feels she's whispering right in your ear.


    'Devotion' collaborators Dave Okumu and James Ford worked with Jessie again, but there are also a few household names on the record this time
    around. Miguel, who had previously worked with Jessie on her remix of his track "Adorn", wrote with her on a string of sessions in the US. A long cry from
    her makeshift studio in Okumu's Lewisham front room, he would bring R&B royalty in to hear their work - J.Cole could be seen poking his head round the
    door.

    Bags Meets Wes!

    Milt Jackson was 38 when, in December 1961, he co-led this superb hard-bop date with the distinctive guitarist Wes Montgomery. A jazzman who was as opinionated as he was gifted, Jackson wouldn't hesitate to tell you exactly what he thought of a musician -- so when he praised Montgomery, you knew his praise was genuine. Not surprisingly, the boppers prove to be quite compatible on Bags Meets Wes, which finds them co-leading an all star-quintet that also includes pianist Wynton Kelly, bassist Sam Jones, and drummer Philly Joe Jones (who shouldn't be confused with swing drummer Jo Jones). Although Jackson and Montgomery prove what lyrical ballad players they could be on the standard Stairway to the Stars, ballads aren't a high priority on this album. Instead, the improvisers put more of their energy into the blues -- and the 12-bar format serves them well on Sam Sack, Blue Roz, and S.K.J. Equally strong are hard-swinging versions of Montgomery's Jingles and Benny Golson's Stablemates.

    Prisoner Of Conscious

    Talib Kweli's sixth solo album, Prisoner of Conscious, is due this April, and the rapper told Hive that he's made some changes for this one. "I think the most glaring difference from the albums I've released before is the number of features on it," he said via phone last week. Confirmed vocalists include Kendrick Lamar, Nelly, Busta Rhymes, Black Thought, Rah Digga and Brazilian artist Seu Jorge for the song "Favela Love," with production assists coming from the RZA, Oh No, Terrance Martin, Symbolyc One and J Cole.


    Kweli said he named the album Prison of Conscious because this record isn't "overtly political and heavy-handed, which is something that I can definitely do and have done in the past, but this album is really all about dealing with life situations." He added, "I think people are going to really relate to the music."

    A Winter Tale

    A Winter Tale is the highly anticipated debut studio album from British singer/songwriter/guitarist Bobby Long. Currently residing in New York City, the 24-year old Long has been writing finely-crafted songs since taking up the guitar at age 17; from then on he's been creating memorable songs inhabited by hauntingly poetic lyrics. After relocating to London from Wiltshire in the countryside of Southwest England, he became a fixture at London's open-mic nights while attending London Metropolitan University where he studied Music in Film and wrote his thesis on The Social Impact of American Folk Music.



    As Long became more entrenched in London's burgeoning open mic circuit, he met actor and fellow musician Robert Pattinson, who would go on to sing Let Me Sign (co-written by Long and friend Marcus Foster) over a crucial dramatic scene in the blockbuster film Twilight. The inclusion of the song in the film's soundtrack gave Long a head start on a legion of fans.



    A Winter Tale features Nona Hendryx (LaBelle) on backing vocals, B. J. Cole (Elton John, Sting) on pedal steel, and Icelandic singer Lay Low on several tracks. Produced by Grammy winner Liam Watson (The White Stripes)

    The Child Of Lov

    180 Gram Heavyweight Vinyl


    For Fans of: Gnarls Barkley, Beck, J Dilla, Gorillaz, Danger Mouse


    There's something about Cole Williams's voice that conjures pictures in the mind.
    Not only through the intense and compelling vocals of his recordings, either.
    There's a catch to it, a rugged rasp weathered beyond his years, that shows that his
    singing style - rich in the cadences of funk, blues and soul. Spend any time with
    them, and it's abundantly clear that Cole - or if you prefer, The Child Of Lov - is a
    true modern soul man.


    This much we know: Cole has lived in London, Paris and Amsterdam where he's
    currently based. He has, for various reasons, spent a good deal of time alone with
    music. His first inspirations were his mother's Stevie Wonder albums. By the age
    of 13 he was listening to hip hop and neo-soul, and began to try and make his own
    beats on his computer, and initially to rap. At 14, he began to teach himself guitar
    and piano, and became obsessed with the off-kilter hip hop beats of J Dilla and
    especially Madlib, the master of the thickly-layered psychedelic groove. Inspired
    by the combination of unorthodox musicality with hip hop attitude, as he picked
    out his own melodies and slowly developed his instrumental skills; it all came
    together.


    So here we are: from those years' worth of self-disciplined musical study and
    practice recordings, then a period of adjusting to their exposure to the world, have
    come the tracks that became The Child Of Lov album. They're layered with all
    the intensity and dedication that Cole has put into his listening and learning, and
    with his passion for the influences. Check out "Give Me" - the peculiar stutter of
    his abstract hip hop heroes Madlib and Dilla is there, but so is his first inspiration
    Stevie Wonder as well as brilliantly discordant hints of Prince and even Tom Waits
    in full junkyard prophet mode. Listen to the powerfully defiant "Fly" and wonder
    that the powerful, gospel-infused voice is that of a young man, and not a soul
    veteran beaten but unbowed by life's tribulations and soak up the mournful opener
    "Call Me Up" - the sort of track you'd always hoped Sly Stone might pull himself
    together and make one day
