Music Monday: The Raconteurs, Sad Money, Felix Cartal, Big Voyage, Warden, Shapes, Frames, and Foals

Jack White, Brendan Benson, Jack Lawrence, and Patrick Keeler, The Raconteurs, have unveiled “Bored and Razed,” the latest track from their long-awaited new album, HELP US STRANGER (Third Man Records).

The GRAMMY® Award-winning rock band’s third studio LP and the first new album in more than a decade, HELP US STRANGER is available now. The new album features such tracks as “Sunday Driver,” “Now That You’re Gone,” “Hey Gyp (Dig The Slowness),” and “Help Me Stranger,” along with the new track “Bored and Razed.”

 

Sad Money is Ultra’s newest signee who previously produced for top-shelf talents such as Sabrina Claudio, Khalid, Pink Sweats, Chloe x Halle, The Martinez Brothers, and more. “Le Freek” is his debut single as a solo artist and he already has more music set for a release soon.

 

Felix Cartal‘s brand new, euphonious release – “Over It” ft. Veronica (with whom he worked on 2018’s “Faces”), just has been released on Physical Presents. “Over It” is about reflecting on past relationships with a fondness, even if these didn’t work out perfectly. On the production side, it was composed as a track that works at a club/festival and has an impact on people’s emotions.

 

Brooklyn’s Big Voyage is escaping the city on superb new single “Fight Of The Toucan” out now on Circus Records. Producer, Songwriter, Composer, Saxophonist, his beguiling talents know few bounds, and his electric catalog reflects that.

His last release “Purple Boots,” a not so subtle ode to one late incredible performer, was a powerful eulogy in the medium communicable by all.

 

LA-based Warden makes his New Noise debut via “Massive,” a driving 4/4 club single packed with frenetic rave sirens and a dirty lead synth.

“Massive” follows Warden’s recent single “Grief” and last year’s critically-acclaimed Emerge EP. Citing influences as wide as drum & bass, hip-hop, house and techno, Warden brings a unique spectrum of sound to each of his releases.

 

Shapes has just shared his new Circus Records single “What’s It Gonna Be.” Previously packing out dance floors with stunners like “Cold Individual” with Doctor P, “What U Want” and “Discover” feat. Prima. Building an astonishing reputation in the bass world he’s had love from the likes of Jauz, Skepsis, Holy Goof, Notion, Darkzy, and many more.

With constant support from Ephwurd, the legendary producer even had Shapes on a collab for his own EPH’D UPlabel, which Elephants Then dropped during his EDC Las Vegas set. Placing releases on Holy Goof’s ‘Globes’ and UKF’s ‘Bass Culture 4’, as well as having recently provided an official remix for Example’s huge single ‘All Night’.

 

Philadelphia-based Know Hope Records is thrilled to welcome Richmond, VA’s Frames to their growing roster. The label will be announcing the band’s debut EP very soon, so stay tuned for more details. In the meantime please check out “Hell” via the Spotify link below.

 

Foals debuts “The Runner,” the second song off their forthcoming album, Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost – Part 2, which will be released on Warner Records on October 18th. Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost – Part 1 has been shortlisted for this month’s Mercury Prize, and both “The Runner” and the previously released song, “Black Bull”, encapsulate Part 2’s stylistic evolution.

The song is set in the aftermath of the landscape described in the final songs of Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost – Part 1, a world that reflects our current emotional, political, and environmental predicament. Said lead singer Yannis Philippakis about the song: “It’s a call to find a sense of purpose & perseverance despite the odds & despite the troubles we may find inside or outside ourselves.
