Shangri LaBarely a year after his debut, in November 2013 Jake Bugg returns with its bar-raising follow-up, Shangri La. The album shares a title with the Malibu studio where it was made, once the 70s haven of Bob Dylan and The Band, now the creative hib of legendary producer Rick Rubin, the recording Titan whose jawdropping c.v. spans from Def Jam and Johnny Cash to Adele and Kanye West.
Rubin's assembled wrecking crew of Shangri La session regulars includes guitarist Matt Sweeney (Bonnie `Prince' Billy, Neil Diamond, Endless Boogie), bassist Jason Lader (The Mars Volta), and drummers Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers) and Pete Thomas (Elvis Costello). Yet for all its stellar cast and production kudos, the real star of Shangri La is, unquestionably, Bugg himself.
Asked to compare Shangri La with its predecessor, Bugg concludes: 'My first album felt like a list of songs, whereas this one feels like a whole entity with something to say. Or if my first album was the colour of grey reality, this one's the colour of the sun'. The colour of our planet's nearest star. Or maybe the sound of a new star intensifying their musical colours. Listening to his second album, you dare to wonder where a talent like Jake Bugg could find themselves in ten years' time. His prediction: 'Up front for England'.1. There's A Beast And We All Feed It

THE FAULT IN OUR STARS, based upon the number-one bestselling novel by John Green, explores the funny, thrilling and tragic business of being alive and in love.

Get HurtNew Jersey rockers The Gaslight Anthem return with their eagerly anticipated new album, Get Hurt, through Island Records/Mercury.
Recorded at the legendary Blackbird Studios in Nashville with producer Mike Crossey (The 1975, Arctic Monkeys and Jake Bugg), Get Hurt sees The
Gaslight Anthem pushing their raw stripped back rock 'n' roll into new territory, drawing on a fresh palette of influences ranging from folk, punk, and
Americana. It is an album that is heavier, and yet at the same time more intimate, than anything they have produced to date.
Following the success of their 2012 album Handwritten -- which charted in the Top 10 of the album charts across Europe and America, with the band
playing Wembley Stadium, Glastonbury and Coachella along the way -- The Gaslight Anthem's fifth studio album perfectly shows them thriving creatively
while pushing their horizons artistically. It is a record that oozes the confidence of a band at the very top of their game.1 Stay Vicious

El PradoNO was formed in 2010 through the chance encounter of Bradley Hanan Carter and Sean Daniel Stentz at a local LA diner. Bonding over stories of disastrous relationships as well as their mutual admiration for storytelling artists like Leonard Cohen, Bill Callahan, Johnny Cash and Lou Reed, the two decided to unite and build something for themselves.
Following the 2011 release of Don't Worry, You'll Be Here Forever EP, NO quickly gained recognition with the local Echo Park crowds, and both NME and the LA Times tipped them as an act to keep a close eye on. 2012 saw them wrack up over 100 live shows, including supports for Best Coast and Electric Guest, and a European tour with Father John Misty. In 2013 the band returned to LA for a sold-out headline show at The Troubadour and performed at international festivals including London's Hard Rock Calling and Germany's Southside and Hurricane, as well as supporting the likes of The Smashing Pumpkins, Public Image LTD and The Naked and Famous.
The six-piece are now looking forward having just finished their self-produced debut album El Prado. Mixed by Billy Bush (Tegan & Sara, Foster The People, Jake Bugg) and mastered by Joe LaPorta (Beach House, Foo Fighters, Vampire Weekend), the album will be released by Arts & Crafts in North America in 2014.1.
