    Sam's Town

    Sam's Town is the second studio album by American rock band The Killers, originally released on October 2, 2006, in the United Kingdom and the following day in the United States. Regarding the album, vocalist and primary lyricist Brandon Flowers noted that he wanted to create an album that captured, chronologically, everything important that got me to where I am today. Sam's Town has sold over 4.5 million copies worldwide.

    Battle Born

    From out of the wreckage of the American Civil War, the great state of Nevada came into being on October 31st, 1864. Its creation immediately helped to secure the re-election of Abraham Lincoln, the passage of the Thirteenth Amendment and, ultimately, the future of the union. Today, that proud but painful history is enshrined in the two words emblazoned on the upper left-hand corner of the state flag: Battle Born.


    That phrase has always resonated with Brandon Flowers. It's what The Killers named their studio in Las Vegas, and when the band reconvened last May to start work on the follow-up to 2008's Day & Age, it became first a song title, then a thematic touchstone, and eventually the name of the album itself. But not all battles are blood and thunder: after a yearlong hiatus that saw three of the four Killers launch solo careers, they quickly discovered that timing and circumstance can be daunting adversaries in their own right.


    Safe to say, Battle Born's title was well-earned. "It's the hardest thing I've ever done, no question," says Brandon. "It's the longest we've ever taken to make a record, and the longest I've ever spent on the lyrics. We thought we had enough songs, but then we realized that we didn't, and so we had to pound away and grind it out until we were certain that we were ready."


    A small-town drama of epic-scale proportions, "Runaways" is everything you could wish for from a Killers comeback single; an unmistakably American expression of romance and optimism that heralds their return with cyclonic, Who-esque guitars and a chorus big enough to be bellowed from one end of the Mojave to the other.


    One of the album's oldest songs, the bare bones were written in 2009 on the Day & Age tour, but, says Brandon, "We never knew what to do with it. Day & Age was us trying to be more of a pop group, but Runaways was rootsy and American, and it threw me for a curve. I knew it was a powerful song. But when it came time to make the album, there was an understanding the four of us had that we were gonna do what we're good at. The Killers write a specific kind of song, and we're not gonna shy away from it. So 'Runaways' became a kind of launching pad."


    More songs followed: the title track, a musical 'brother' to its lead single; "Here With Me," the album's heartstring-tugging emotional gravity-centre; the stadia-quaking electro-rock of "Flesh & Bone." By the time the band had satisfactorily refined that body of songs, however, none of the producers on their shortlist could commit to making a whole album, necessitating a process whereby they recorded in fits and starts with a stellar roll-call of names that included Daniel Lanois, Steve Lillywhite, Damian Taylor, Stuart Price and Brendan O'Brien.


    And therein lies Battle Born's real triumph. Recorded almost entirely at the studio that shares its name, it incorporates elements from each of the records that came before it; Hot Fuss' storytelling eye for detail; the yearning, mythic Americana of Sam's Town; the gratuitous hooks and pop nous of Day & Age; without sounding overtly like any one in particular. It's the sound of a band recognizing, and celebrating, their own identity. To borrow Brandon's maxim, Battle Born is The Killers "Doing what we do best."

    Career Vinyl Box (On Sale)


    Box Set Features 7x Albums Across 10x 180-Gram Vinyl


    Includes The First Vinyl Pressing Of Live From The Royal Albert Hall, Recorded Live At The Historic Venue In July Of 2009 As A Box Set Exclusive


    Includes A Slip Mat Featuring The "K" From The Band's Logo And Inspired By The Vintage Lights Of The Las Vegas Strip


    No other band has soundtracked the 2000s more than Vegas rockers The Killers and now their nearly 15 years-long discography will be celebrated in one place with a seven-volume Killers Career Vinyl Box through Island/UMe.


    The career-spanning collection will be available on 180-gram black vinyl and include a slip mat featuring the "K" from the band's logo and inspired by the vintage lights of the Las Vegas Strip


    This career retrospective vinyl box marks the first time that all seven of the band's albums have been collected in one complete box set including: Hot Fuss, Sam's Town, Sawdust, Day & Age, Battle Born, Wonderful Wonderful and for the first time on vinyl, Live From The Royal Albert Hall.


    Originally released in November 2009 as a live DVD, this double live album captures the kinetic energy of their historic lives shows at the Royal Hall in 2009 and is now available as a double LP and is exclusive to the Career Vinyl Box. It also includes their mid-career compilation album, Sawdust, which contains B-sides, covers and remixes, as well as an outtake from Sam's Town, and 'Tranquilize', featuring a guest appearance by Lou Reed.


    As arguably the biggest indie-pop stars on the planet, their indie days are well behind them, selling out stadiums and playing tributes at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. And yet it seems just like yesterday that every 20-something in skinny jeans was blaring the indie disco staple 'Mr Brightside' from The Killers' three-times-platinum 2004 debut album, Hot Fuss. Even 14 years later, the band's most enduring single remains firmly in the charts, having just its 200th week in the Billboard top 100.


    After Hot Fuss ushered in their signature post-New Wave sound with massive hooks, they continued on their course of amassing hit after hit of transcendent anthems from 'All These Things That I've Done' and to the Springsteen-eque singalong 'When You Were Young' off their sophomore album Sam's Town.


    With his stylish swagger and crooning tenor, frontman Brandon Flowers could turn his sardonic streak on songs like "Smile Like You Mean It," and 'Somebody Told Me' into chart gold. With each album, the group flexed their versatility, from the garage rock-pop of Hot Fuss to electro-clash energy of Day & Age to the stadium rocker of Battle Born and most recently 2017's funk-infused Wonderful Wonderful, which snagged the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200.

    Elvis At Stax

    Import

    Riding high on the success of Aloha From Hawaii, Elvis did something remarkable. He decided that his next recording project would be on his home turf - Memphis, TN. The most desirable studio in town was the red-hot STAX - the launching pad of such greats as Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, Sam & Dave and Isaac Hayes. Elvis assembled the very best musicians in town - members of Booker T. and The MGs, The Memphis Boys and his own TCB band to create the ultimate band and he searched for fresh new material that would reect his new path. Such songs as "I Got A Feelin' In My Body" and "Loving Arms" demonstrate an artist looking to broaden his palette and his reach.


    The Stax material has never been positioned as a whole body of work - but is an amazing chapter of Elvis' career. With the Elvis At Stax release, all of this material is collected for the rst time. Along with some of the funky outtakes, it creates a fresh new package that, while it doesn't have the known hits, tells a great story.

    The Magnificent Seven is a remake of the 1960s western film, which in turn was a remake of the 1954 Japanese classic film, Seven Samurai.


    As the town Rose Krick is put under the siege of industrialist Bartholomew Bogue, the residents enlist the help of seven outlaws. Headed by bounty hunter Sam Chisolm they ought to protect them while they prepare for the anticipated violent confrontation. However, upon meeting the town's residents, the Seven find themselves fighting for much more than money.


    The film stars Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D'Onofrio, Lee Byung-hun, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Martin Sensmeier, Peter Sarsgaard and Haley Bennett.


    Multiple Award Winning composer James Horner was asked to write the film's score but died on June 22, 2015. Nearly a month after his death movie director Antoine Fuqua learned that James Horner had already started working on music for the film before filming commenced. Horner's friend and score producer Simon Franglen co-composed the score after Horner's death. This score will be the final James Horner score to be released posthumously.

    Carried To Dust

    There's always been intrigue and adventure at the heart of Calexico. Ever since they were a largely instrumental duo, Joey Burns and John Convertino have constantly imbued their music with an unparalleled sense of drama, calling upon the myths and iconography of the American West and its Spanish speaking neighbor Mexico. Equal parts Sergio Leone, Larry McMurty, Carlos Fuentes and Cormac McCarthy. Naming themselves after a town near the California/Mexico border in honor of this cultural melange, they've spent the eighteen years since they met in Los Angeles mapping out their musical territory.


    For Carried To Dust, Calexico called on a rotating cast of musicians and friends to help them create what is arguably their most varied and strongest output to date. The band lineup that solidified around Feast of Wire (Burns, Convertino, Martin Wenk, Jacob Valenzuela, Paul Niehaus, Volker Zander) is back again, along with a number of guests including Sam Beam, Douglas McCombs and Pieta Brown.


    The new record is a shining example of Calexico's commitment to constantly redefining exactly who they are. A continued examination of their sources of inspiration, Carried To Dust is the next step in Calexico's ongoing quest of moving forward while never turning its back on the past. A remarkably well-rounded album, Carried To Dust underscores the band's restraint and beauty while showcasing every aspect of the bands' exceptional talents.

    Elvis At Stax

    1973 was a crucial year in the career of Elvis Presley. Riding high on the success of Elvis: Aloha From Hawaii via Satellite, which was seen by over 1 BILLION people, Elvis did something remarkable. He chose to take control of his own business. He sold his future royalties to RCA and he started a new publishing company. No one would tell him what to do ever again.


    Elvis decided that his next recording project would be on his home turf - at the red-hot STAX, the launching pad of such greats as Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, Sam & Dave and Isaac Hayes. He assembled the very best musicians in town - members of The

    South Of Nowhere

    Spanish Gold, which features drummer Patrick Hallahan (My Morning Jacket), guitarist Adrian Quesada (formerly of Grupo Fantasma) and guitarist and lead vocalist Dante Schwebel (City and Colour, formerly of Hacienda), release their debut album South of Nowhere on BMG/Del Mar Records.


    Produced by the trio along with Collin Dupuis (JEFF the Brotherhood, Bombino), South of Nowhere was recorded by Dupuis at Dan Auerbach's Easy Eye Studio in Nashville and at Lalaland in Louisville. Additional recording was done with Jim Eno (Spoon, Poliça) at Public Hi-Fi in Austin and Sam Patlove (The Octopus Project) at Big Orange in Austin.


    Of making the new album, Schwebel comments, "We kept finding that we had a lot of the same reference points during the recording. It became evident that we were still children of the MTV era.


    We grew up with MTV when it was still a music channel. The way that the programming crossed genres from R&B to hip hop, rock, soul and pop music is how we approach records. It's an album of all those styles. Like watching a random hour of MTV programming circa 1986-1996. It's a nod to Michael Jackson, Dr. Dre, Madonna, the Beastie Boys or Tom Petty, all with a Texas border town setting. It all adds up to a fun listen that you can keep on repeat."

    Pinetop Perkins

    Perkins began his blues existence primarily as a guitarist, but a mid-40's encounter with an outraged knife-toting chorus girl at a nightspot left him with severed tendons in his left arm. That dashed his guitar aspirations, but Joe Willie Perkins came back strong from the injury, concentrating solely on piano. He traveled to Helena with Robert Nighthawk in 1943, playing with the elegant slide guitarist on his radio program. Perkins soon switched over to rival Sonny Boy Williamson's beloved King Biscuit Time radio show and remained for an extended period.


    Perkins accompanied Nighthawk on a 1950 session for the Chess brothers that produced Jackson Town Gal, but Chicago couldn't hold him at the time. He hit the road, pausing at Sam Phillips's studios in Memphis long enough for Perkins to wax his first version of Pinetop's Boogie Woogie in 1953, then headed back to the windy city in 1969 when Otis Spann split from Muddy Waters. That is when the stage was set for Pinetop Perkins's reemergence. It was only then that his rolling mastery of the ivories began to assume outsized proportions.


    After joining Muddy Waters, Pinetop made up for precious lost time in the studio. Discs for Antone's, Omega (Portrait of a Delta Bluesman, a solo outing that includes fascinating interview segments), Deluge, Earwig, and several other firms ensure that his boogie legacy won't be forgotten in decades to come.


    Pinetop at a young 87 years old admits he wasn't the originator of the seminal piano piece Pinetop's Boogie Woogie, but it's a safe bet that more people associate it nowadays with Pinetop than with the man who devised it in the first place, Clarence Pinetop Smith. Pinetop plays 6 songs on a Steinway Concert Grand 9' model D with Jimmy D. Lane on guitar.

    Chaos And The Calm

    Amongst its twelve tracks, James Bay's Chaos And The Calm features the singles Hold Back the River and Let It Go. Driven by his soulful delivery, captivating storytelling, and inimitable spirit, he's poised to capture the attention of listeners worldwide within the next year. Already, numerous tastemakers are predicting big things for BAY in 2015. A multitude of major news sources have chosen him as one of 2015 s Artist to Watch. In addition The New York Times named Let It Go as one of 2014's best songs.


    Back home, he recently received the high honor of the BRIT Critics Choice Award, an honor previously won by none other than Adele, Florence + the Machine, Sam Smith, Jessie J, and many other superstars. He s also been put on the Long List for BBC 1 Sound of 2015. BAY hails from the tiny town of Hitchin, but he cut his teeth performing at London s iconic venues including opening for The Rolling Stones at Hyde Park, opening for two sold out tours with Kodaline, John Newman and Tom Odell. It was at one of these very performances that a fan filmed his set and shared the video on YouTube. The video quickly caught the attention of Republic Records who ended up flying BAY to New York and signing him on the spot. This fall he was selected to perform at the Burberry's Prosum Spring/Summer Fashion Show and the iTunes Music Festival. BAY is now set to kick off his second sold out headlining tour of the UK.

    Growing up in small-town upstate New York, frontman Sam Harris, his brother Casey, and childhood friend Noah Feldshuh bonded over an obsessive love for punk, rock & roll, soul, and hip-hop that defied the conventions of their peer group. X Ambassadors will release their debut album VHS June 30rd on KIDinaKORNER/Interscope Records and produced by GRAMMY-winner Alex Da Kid. X Ambassadors have spent the last two years on the road in support of their two EP releases - Love Songs Drug Songs EP and The Reason EP. They shared the bill with Imagine Dragons, Panic! At The Disco, Lights, Jimmy Eat World, performed at festivals such as Firefly Festival, Made in America and Lollapalooza and headlined two tours of the U.S., including the Into The Jungle tour which followed the success of their single Jungle.

    Restoration: The Songs Of Elton John And Bernie Taupin


    Some of the world's biggest pop, rock and country artists are celebrating Elton John's most beloved and legendary catalog of hits with two albums Revamp (Island Records) and Restoration (Mercury Nashville). The superstar lineup features artists both new and iconic reinterpreting the timeless songs of the over 50 year writing partnership that Elton and Bernie Taupin share. These renditions and artists show the depth of the catalog these two icons have created, which can easily cross musical genres and their unparalleled influence across popular music of all styles.


    Revamp features the hits reimagined by the best in pop, rock and urban with Mary J. Blige, Alessia Cara, Coldplay, Miley Cyrus, Florence And The Machine, Lady Gaga, The Killers, Mumford and Sons, P!nk and Logic, Q-Tip ft. Demi Lovato, Queens of the Stone Age, Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith,


    Restoration highlights countries biggest stars with thoughtful interpretations by Dierks Bentley, Rosanne Cash and Emmylou Harris, Miley Cyrus, Vince Gill and Don Henley, Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Maren Morris, Kacey Musgraves, Willie Nelson, Brothers Osborne, Chris Stapleton, Rhonda Vincent and Dolly Parton and Lee Ann Womack.


    "'It's always a huge compliment when an artist loves your song enough to take the time and effort to rework it," adds Elton John. "As songwriters, Bernie and myself are thrilled when singers we admire and respect as much as those on Revamp & Restoration choose to add their own unique twist in the process. It means that our music is still relevant and ultimately that our songs continue to reach new audiences. We're humbled and thank them all for their generosity."


    "Because of our love of all kinds of music, we're not stuck in one genre," said Bernie Taupin. "From day one we borrowed from everything that's good about American music - whether it's blues, country, gospel, pop, pure rock - everything got thrown in the mix. I think that's why our music over the years has been so varied. It would be tiring if you just got stuck in one niche your entire career, especially when it's one as long as ours."


    The album art for Restoration was created by Bernie. The rustic musical instruments and flags from both nations is an extension of his mixed-media art that's another form of expression. It symbolizes the role that U.S. culture and its native music has played as a driver in the John/Taupin canon.


    "For me, there's an irony about the American flag," Taupin says. "It's been battered and beaten and burned, but it's resilient. It's always come back. I incorporate it with other things, and lately I've done a lot of pieces with deconstructed guitars and other found materials: barbed wire, broken bottles, things that people identify with on an everyday level. If it's on the floor and it works, I'll put it into the artwork. But it all goes hand in hand with my belief in America and my interest, I would say obsession, with Americana."


    Revamp has a pop art cover based on the Terry O'Neil photograph of Elton that was recreated in neon. The covers are very different from each other because they represent totally different albums.


    "We have two completely different albums; Revamp being the pop one and Restoration being the country one and God we have so many great artists doing our songs, it's quite incredible," said Elton John. "Restoration was Bernie's project and he's a huge country fan. The 'Revamp' was more my project. He came up with an astonishing list of country performers both new and legendary. On Revamp I wrote out a wish list of people that I would love and asked them and to my surprise most of them said yes and we have quite an astonishing eclectic crew."
