Manhattan is already attracting glowing headline in advance of its release:

 

“Hubbard provides layered guitar chords that are more waves of sound than riffs, adding to the feeling of isolation. Meanwhile, Cummings’ detached voice adds another element of frost, further referencing the band’s post-punk influences.” –RollingStone.Com

“The mod-rockers combine The Strokes ragged melodies, hints of 2tone’s checkerboard tempo swings and Britpop’s hooligan smirk, plus new Wave’s baritone strut and hardcore ‘s sprint; the result reverberates with unbridled energy.” – Electronic Musician Magazine

“A band with the garage revivalist instincts and lo-fi cool to finally bring guitars back into fashion.” —NME (UK)

KYLIE MINOGUE TO RELEASE BRAND NEW ALBUM, KISS ME ONCE, ON MARCH 18TH

FIRST SINGLE, “INTO THE BLUE,” OUT NOW, TUESDAY, JANUARY 28TH

“INTO THE BLUE” EARNING EARLY CRITICAL RAVES

“‘Into The Blue’ is the best pop single you’ll hear all year” – Huffington Post

January 28th, 2014 – Burbank, CA – Multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning global superstar Kylie Minogue will release a brand new album, entitled Kiss Me Once, on Warner Bros. Records / Parlophone on March 18th. This is the Australian pop icon’s first studio album since 2010’s Aphrodite, and her first since signing to Roc Nation Management.

 

Kiss Me Once, a return to the dance floor after 2012’s orchestral compilation The Abbey Road Sessions, was executive produced by Kylie and Sia, who co-wrote the title track. Kylie also teams up with Pharrell Williams, who wrote and produced “I Was Gonna Cancel,” Ariel Rechtshaid (HAIM), MNEK (Bastille), and Greg Kurstin (P!nk).

 

“Making this album was quite a journey but I loved it,” Kylie says. “It was through a time in my life where there were a lot of changes and new beginnings. I’m thrilled with the response to ‘Into The Blue,’ and I can’t wait for you hear the rest of the record!”

 

The first single, “Into The Blue” will be released today, Tuesday, January 28th, and has already been hailed by critics as “the best pop single you’ll hear all year,” as The Huffington Post put it, going on to praise it as “a bona-fide, smack you between the eyes, instant pop classic” that “manages the rare feat of getting better with every listen.” Idolator raved: “‘Into the Blue’ truly takes off at the seismic hook, where Minogue’s crystalline voice soars over an arena-ready dance breakdown. She sounds optimistic, if not in total bliss.” “Into The Blue” will feature remixes by Vanilla Ace, Roger Sanchez and Patrick Hagenaar. Watch the lyric video here.

 

 Kylie exploded onto the music scene in 1987 and has not only become a chart topping, multiple Grammy, BRIT, and ARIA award-winning artist over the past two decades, but also a fashion icon, designer, entrepreneur, actress, and philanthropist. She has remained a force to be reckoned with and a constant musical influence throughout the years, having released eleven studio albums, two live CDs, eight live concert DVDs, plus her Greatest Hits and the Ultimate Kylie double album and multiple video packages. She has released 50 singles internationally, all of which have been hits, and sold more than 70 million albums worldwide.

 

Kylie broke through in the U.S. with her 2001 smash single “Can’t Get You Out Of My Head,” which reached No.1 in over 40 countries. Her myriad achievements also include performing during the closing ceremonies of the 2000 Sydney Olympics, ranking among VH1’s “Great Women in Music” and Greatest Women of the Video Era,” and inspiring millions around the world as not only a gay icon, but also a breast cancer survivor.

 

Most recently, Kylie made a triumphant debut as a coach on The Voice UK, with The Guardian exclaiming that she “single-handedly revived the show” as it pulled in record viewing figures. She is also coaching on The Voice Australia, which began filming this year.

 

Kiss Me Once will be available for pre-order in standard and deluxe editions beginning today, Tuesday, January 28th. The track-listing is as follows:

 

Into The Blue

Million Miles

I Was Gonna Cancel

Sexy Love

Sexercize

Bad Things Debut Album Now To Be Released January 21st On WBR

LA rock band Bad Things – that consists of front man/lead singer Davis LeDuke, bass player Jared Palomar (formerly of Augustana), guitarist Anthony Sanudo, drummer Lena Zawaideh and lead guitarist Shaun White (professional snowboarder/skateboarder) will be releasing their debut, self-titled album January 21st on Warner Bros. Records (iTunes Pre-Order here). The record was produced by Rob Schnapf (Beck, Elliot Smith, The Vines). The lead single “Anybody, ” a “chugging rock anthem heavy with choirboy backing harmonies” according to Rolling Stone, is now for sale at iTunes and streaming onYouTube and Soundcloud.

Right on the heels of Bad Things‘ release, NBC is set to air “Shaun White: Russia Calling” on January 25th. The special gives an inside look at how the gold-medal-winning snowboarder prepped for the Winter Olympics in Sochi next month in addition to juggling his other commitments, including Bad Things.

Get a taste of what Bad Things are all about live, check out this video fromLollapalooza of the band covering Iggy And The Stooges’ “Search And Destroy” as well as this clip of”Anybody.”Bad Things completed a North American tour of the country last fall that included festival stops at Lollapalooza in Chicago, Osheaga Festival in Montreal and Voodoo Music and Art Experience in New Orleans, which earned the band much deserved acclaim.

Reports from Osheaga were equally as impressive. Canadian media outlet Dose.caawarded Bad Things with the #1 Most Surprising Moment of the festival, raving about their performance. “Google ‘Bad Things’ and you’ll be inundated with articles that start with the words ‘Shaun White’s band…,’ which is totally misleading, considering how much more there is to these guys” says Dose. “They have great original material and the kind of solid musicianship and stage presence you’d expect from a group that’s been playing together for years.”

Bad Things earned their undeniable chemistry through sheer persistence and – in the case of Zawaideh, guitarist Anthony Sanudo, and lead guitarist Shaun White – a friendship forged in their San Diego hometown that dates back to their teens. In 2014 Bad Things is ready to share their electrifying sound and moving lyrics with the world.With the upcoming self-titled debut release, it’s only the beginning.  “Music is what we do,” Sanudo says. “It is all we can do and all we ever want to do. Though obviously Shaun is pretty good at a couple of other things.”
