Richard Hawley Hollow Meadows

Richard Hawley released his eighth album, Hollow Meadows, today (9/11) via Parlophone in the UK. It's his first album in three years (2012's Standing at Sky's Edge was his last) and he's not messing with his sound one bit here: a little Duane Eddy twang, some '50s glamour and "King of the Road" shabby chic, and a dab of Brylcreem. As always, at the center is Hawley's warm, smoky voice. It's good to hear it again. Pure class. You can stream the album via Rdio and watch the video for "Heart Of Oak" below.

Guests on the LP include his old Sheffield friend and Pulp bandmate Jarvis Cocker who plays Rheem Kee bass on "Nothing Like A Friend'" and Slow Club's Rebecca Taylor.

"There was a certain amount of science to it. An entire week of work experience students left the office thinking that cutting-edge music journalism in 2014 mostly involves calculating which bands have been mentioned most in NME in the past two years, then hunting out references to the bands that influenced those acts online and finally adding up the number of times each influence came up. This gave us a rough list which our editorial team - heads swimming with all of the bands that Wolf Alice (or whoever) have raved on about over 4am ciders - then took to the pub, tore into shreds, fought and shouted about and finally reconstructed in the rundown of 100 you see in the mag today. The Beatles didn't make it. Sorry." [NME[
NME went ahead and listed who they think the 100 most influential musicians and bands are (their latest cover story). Radiohead topped the list. Read the rest with justifications at NME, or just look at their full list below...

Alt-J at Mercury Lounge in May (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)

Big day for award nominations. The Oscars announced theirs this morning and the Brit Awards just wrapped up their ceremony for 2013 nominations, with Emeli Sandé grabbing four and Mumford & Sons and Alt-J each getting three. All three of those artists were nominated for British Album of the Year, a list that also included Paloma Faith and Plan B. If you don't know, The Brits are basically the UK's equivalent of the Grammys, though nominees are all British apart from a few "International" awards.

Jessie Ware, Muse, and Adele each got two nominations, and single-digit noms went to Bat for Lashes, The xx, Richard Hawley and The Vaccines.

Mumford & Sons have two nights at Barclays Center in February and Alt-J will swing though town in March.

The entire 2013 Brit Awards nominees list is below.

Leonard Cohen

UK music magazine Uncut put out their list of the top 75 albums of 2012. The top ten leans pretty heavy on long-running '60s/'70s survivors who put out new albums this year, but plenty of the list-topping regulars from newer acts are on there too, along with a few interesting surprises (Sun Araw, M Geddes Gengras & the Congos!). You can check out the full list below.

Jack White

In addition to the Fleetwood Mac cover story (and Rumours cover CD that comes with it), the new issue of MOJO is the 2012 Year-End wrap-up with the best albums list which is topped by Jack White's Blunderbuss. Their list is definitely different than most, but also in line with the mag that puts the Beatles on the cover at least once a year. You can check out MOJO's Top 20 below.

Alt JAlt J

It's that time of year already I guess. NME quizzed a whole bunch of artists about their favorite album of the year. Bat For Lashes chose Alt-J who recently won the Mercury Prize and who chose Polica as their favorite. That and more, if you can understand what they're saying, in the video, below....

Why yes, we have posted a lot of stuff already today. Here's some more

Mythbuster? More like Myrthbuster. TV personality Jamie Hyneman apparently abandoned his first born. Luckily, NYC has a history of taking your poor, your tired, and your mustachioed; baby Hyneman has taken up residence at the New York Aquarium. (confused?).

Shades of Scott Tenorman: Radiohead Fan Sells Cheating Girlfriend's Tickets Online, Gets Invited to Hang Out with Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul.

Morrissey is in NYC right now and appeared on Colbert.

Bat for Lashes now streaming 6 songs off The Haunted Man at The Guardian; and you can stream Tamaryn's album (via Gorilla Vs. Bear) at the bottom of this post.

Is Spotify's business model broken? Anybody pay for Spotify Premium? (editor's note: I do)

For those who like free stuff: We are giving away two tickets to see Menomena at Bowery Ballroom on October 11 on the BV Facebook Page as well as tickets to Dark Dark Dark and Emily Wells at LPR on 10/13 and to The Darkness at Terminal 5 on 10/21.

Adele's "Rolling in the Deep" "received more performances on U.S. radio and television than any other song in the BMI repertoire during 2011."

The Rolling Stones "are pleased to announce the WORLD EXCLUSIVE first airplay of the brand new single from The Rolling Stones, 'Doom And Gloom' will take place on Thursday October 11th at 8:15am. The single can be downloaded on the same day from iTunes."

Led Zeppelin were hanging out in NYC on the same day Pete Townshend was.

Toro Y Moi has announced that he'll release a new album called Anything In Return on January 21st via Carpark Records.

Hey arty types: design Richard Hawley's Guitar Skin!

Django Django at Glasslands, March 2012 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
Django Django

The shortlist for the 2012 Mercury Prize, an award voted on by a panel of music industry professionals and journalists honoring UK albums of the year, was just announced:

The Maccabees - Given to the Wild
Jessie Ware - Devotion
Alt-J - An Awesome Wave
Richard Hawley - Standing at the Sky's Edge
Michael Kiwanuka - Home Again
Lianne La Havas - Is Your Love Big Enough
Ben Howard - Every Kingdom
Sam Lee - Ground of its Own
Field Music - Plumb
Django Django - S/T
Roller Trio - S/T
Plan B - Ill Manors
Odds seem pretty good for Alt-J (who play Bowery Ballroom tonight), who have not only made a great album with An Awesome Wave, but also the kind of album the Mercury Prize voters like. Though, though we shouldn't count out Micheal Kiwanuka's Home Again or Jessie Ware's Devotion. Now in its 20th year, this year's Mercury Prize will be given out November 1. (I am rooting for Django Django.) Last year's winner was Let England Shake by PJ Harvey.

"Exit Through the Gift Shop, the first film by renowned graffiti artist Banksy, became the hottest ticket at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival where it made its world debut. Banksy is a graffiti artist with a global reputation whose work can be seen on walls from post--hurricane New Orleans to the separation barrier on the Palestinian West Bank. Fiercely guarding his anonymity to avoid prosecution, Banksy has so far resisted all attempts to be captured on film. Exit Through the Gift Shop tells the incredible true story of how an eccentric French shop keeper turned documentary maker attempted to locate and befriend Banksy, only to have the artist turn the camera back on its owner with spectacular results. The film contains exclusive footage of Banksy, Shepard Fairey, Invader and many of the worlds most infamous graffiti artists at work, on walls and in interview. As Banksy describes it, Its basically the story of how one man set out to film the un--filmable. And failed"

Taken By Trees in Other Music

She was happy in her own way, shy and introspected, with the crowd and seemed like she gave us a last minute gift for how quiet we were for her. She whispered her guitarist and soon after he started playing their new song that has been hitting every blog around these days, her cover of Guns N' Roses's "Sweet Child of Mine". It was definitely the best moment of the show. [Curtains On @ Hiro Ballroom]

Richard Hawley @ Other Music

The Bowery show Saturday night was the first night of that tour and he had the crowd right where he wanted from minute one. The show was a lot like his Sin-e performance in March of last year. Hawley is a pro, as are his ace backing band, and his velvet croon was in perfect form. It was such a class act, it's one of the few times I wish the show had been somewhere like Joe's Pub, which would have been the perfect place to see him. (He's actually played there before, solo acoustic in July 2005 -- his only other NYC show was the Sin-e gig.) And we only got one song from Late Night Final ("Something Is"), and none from Lowedges or his debut. But when the mirrorball came on for his waltz-time single, "Hotel Room," it was one of those perfect moments where you felt happy to be just where you are. [Sound Bites sums it up]

Phosphorescent at Sound Fix and Richard Hawley at Bowery Ballroom where two of my favorites shows in December - both of which I forgot to post about afterwards. I wasn't actually at the Hawley Other Music show, but I liked the above pic of it better than any I saw from Bowery. Speaking of Other Music, they posted the video from the No Age in-store. Speaking of No Age, they're touring with Liars (Brooklyn show = 2/9 @ Warsaw) (and 2/11 @ ?).

And speaking of things I meant to post: "Ted Leo - Boys Gone Wild" would have been the perfect sequel to "Ted Leo - Girls Gone Wild".
