ELLIOTT BROOD, SHELBY EARL, PALL JENKINS
For their fifth album, Elliott Brood wanted to break things. 2008's Mountain Meadows was shortlisted for the Polaris Prize, and the band's last record, Days Into Years, won a 2011 Juno award for roots album of the year. Now was the time to smash the precedents, break the mould. To withdraw to a farmhouse in Bath, Ontario, hammering out nine songs in two weeks. For the first time, Elliott Brood decided to work with an outside producer: Ian Blurton, who has helped make roaring records for the Weakerthans, Skydiggers and Cursed. And for the first time, the group's two songwriters decided to mine the bare histories of their own lives: penning verses about the ends of relationships and the tests of adulthood, long drives, childhood retreating in a rear-view mirror. Work and Love will make a man out of you, the Constantines sang; and so here is Elliott Brood's Work and Love, their most personal album to date, the sound of a grown-up band searching their hearts for all they've lost and gained. Casey Laforet, Mark Sasso and Stephen Pitkin recorded Work and Love in the cold spring of 2014, as the ice was coming apart on Lake Ontario. They deserted their families and holed up in the Tragically Hip's Bathhouse studio, scarcely emerging - waking and playing and playing and playing, one song a day. The magic usually happened some time after midnight, when they were just tired enough. Blurton would come out and lure them into a new place: a different, even truer landscape. They called him the Wizard. Blurton the Wizard and engineer Nyles the Mad Scientist Spencer, filling the corners of songs with burred effects and tape loops. Elliott Brood had played it safe for four records, they claim: Blurton sharpened their sound, weathered and interrogated it, forced the three musicians to confront their own habits. And it made for a full-length that gestures toward the Hip and the Cons as much as it does to Richard Buckner and Whiskeytown. Adding dimension to select tracks on the album, the band is joined by Aaron Goldtein (City and Colour, Daniel Ramano) on Pedal Steel and John Dinsmore (Kathleen Edwards, Sarah Harmer) on bass (for Each Others Kids). These songs are loud and quiet but mostly loud, and always reaching toward something. First loves, lost loves, fuck-ups and young men's just desserts. Laforet has called Work and Love a lament for youth, but it's also a eulogy for the moments that came just after, on the doorstep of manhood. It's music of remembered abandon, new burdens, and those nights, years ago, when the moonlit fields seemed to go on forever. It's Elliott Brood at their sheerest, facing forward and backward at the same time. Formed in 2002, Elliott Brood (the name, a bastardized homage to the fem fatal character in the 1984 Baseball film 'The Natural') united teenage pals Sasso and Laforet over their grown-up love for Neil Young, the Band and the Flying Burrito Brothers. Pitkin was an accidental miracle: he fell into the group after working sound at one of their earliest concerts, offering to record their first EP. Tin Type was a college radio hit and soon this compact trio was making some big noise. Across five subsequent albums, sharing vocals and trading instruments - each of the band-members seems to play everything - Elliott Brood have become one of the premier acts in Canadian roots music. Work and Love is out October 21st, 2014 on Paper Bag Records.

EAST INDIA YOUTH, KATHRYN CALDER (OF NEW PORNOGRAPHERS)
William Doyle’s self-extraction from the physical and creative confines of his former four-piece indie-rock band was the start of an emotionally draining three years, culminating in the arrival of East India Youth and a debut album appropriately titled ‘TOTAL STRIFE FOREVER’. The work brings together glorious orchestral pop, noise and motorik Detroit techno, threaded together with ambient and contemporary classical passages. At once uplifting and bleak, both brutally cold and gloriously buoyant, ‘TOTAL STRIFE FOREVER’ reaches for new heights in electronic music. and surpasses them.

WAYNE THE TRAIN HANCOCK, ACTION ANDY & THE HI-TONES, FANNY AND THE ATTA BOYS
Wayne Hancock has been called the master of hillbilly swing, a roots Renaissance man, a country singer's country singer and Hank Williams meets Gershwin. But the phrase most frequently echoed throughout his career is Wayne Hancock is the real deal. Joe Ely said it, Hank Williams III said it, Bobby Koefer from the Texas Playboys said it, as have countless music fans and writers when referring to Hancock's authentic and original blend of honky tonk, western swing, blues and big band that he calls juke joint swing!
FAT WHITE FAMILY
onsale Fri Feb 27 at 10am. Fat White Family are the greatest young rock band in the UK and this probably extends to the rest of the world as well. For a band that only really coalesced as the Fat White Family in 2011, the six piece have already got several once-in-a-lifetime/ ‘OMG – were you there?’ gigs under their belt. One such show, in December of last year, the band rattled the walls of the legendary 100 Club in London, thus aligning themselves with the numerous legends who have trod the very same stage. The band summoned up the feral electric skronk blues of The Magic Band and The Birthday Party, the proto-punk pummelling of The Monks and The Modern Lovers and the twisted folk of Charles Manson and The Country Teasers. And as singer Lias Saoudi, clad in nothing but a pair of back to front, skin tight rubber trousers, was carried at head height off stage by a crowd of howling devotees, it was clear that something special had just happened...

Named by one of the “20 hottest producers in music” by the NME and hailed as “cred-pop’s answer to the Neptunes” by The Guardian - they are now one of the most buzzed about duos on the electronic circuit. JPatt’s background in soul and funk and B-Roc’s years spent immersed in trip-hop and hip-hop beats has allowed them to quickly ascend the production ranks. Initially gaining recognition for their remixes for artists including Haim, Santigold, Foster The People, Two Door Cinema, Ellie Goulding, Passion Pit and The 1975, they eventually found themselves experimenting with sounds of their own.
