XAMVOLO – RUNNER’S HIGH [VIDEO]

Electro alt-R&B artist XamVolo has released a visual accompaniment to recent single ‘Runner’s High’.  The singer-songwriter and producer describes his sound as “a messy mind over raw, dark jazz grooves” and this definitely comes across in the rough and ready atmosphere of the video; the weightlifting scenes perfectly match the fat bassline, sharp synths and brooding…

ARCHY MARSHALL – A NEW PLACE 2 DROWN

King Krule fans rejoiced as Archy Marshall [the artist himself] announced that he’d soon be releasing ‘A New Place 2 Drown‘; a book of poetry and artwork accompanied by its soundtrack and a short film.  The album [of the same name] is truly exceptional.  Far closer to his Hip Hop-influenced work under aliases DJ JD Sports…

AZEKEL – THE WAR INSIDE

The title of Azekel’s acclaimed ‘Raw, Vol.1’ EP hinted that there’d be a follow-up from the East London native.  Sure enough, new track ‘The War Inside’ is our first glimpse of last summer’s follow-up project ‘Raw, Vol. 2’.  The new EP will see Azekel widen his focus; switching from first-hand accounts of personal relationships to the effects of…

6 MUSIC FESTIVAL: YOUNG FATHERS

  Young Fathers lit up The Sage last night at the BBC’s 6 Music Festival with a live show that is as charged with energy and emotion as it is inch-perfect in terms of execution.  As it has been since the release of their third album, ‘Dead‘, the Edinburgh trio’s performance was absolutely engrossing, to…

GHOSTPOET – OFF PEAK DREAMS

We bloody love Ghostpoet here at Province, and news of new single ‘Off Peak Dreams’ and that his new album, ‘Shedding Skin’ will be released March 2 is music to our ears.  On the track, Ghostpoet offers up his trademark mumble over some live instrumentation, which gives way to a psychadelic middle eight.  The follow-up to 2013’s…

DEATH GRIPS – INANIMATE SENSATION

  Despite the fact that they’ve officially disbanded, Death Grips have an upcoming album in the works entitled ‘Jenny Death’, which will form the latter half of double album ‘The Powers That B’ [along with the previously released first half ‘Niggas On The Moon‘].  Keeping up?  Good.  As one would expect from the Sacrimento experimentalists,…
