Brighton's British Sea Power are set to release their first new material in four years. Melodic, direct and brimming with emotional urgency, Let The Dancers Inherit The Party is an album where rock muscularity joins inseparably with pop immediacy like a crate of the finest sparkling wine exploding inside a Marshall stack.

This spring, Ray Davies will release his first new album in over nine years – Americana. 

Austin based avant-folk singer Jess Williamson's Heart Song is a brave record. It explores the strength in vulnerability, the power in silence and empty space. 

Alternative pop weirdsters Maximo Park will be in Bexhill, East Sussex, this Spring, hot on the heels of their new album Risk To Exist.

Being a teenager is never easy, but for Vivian Harnde it was a particularly difficult time.

With their new album, Heads Up, Warpaint were looking for a way back to the feelings of excitement they got from their early gigs. A body of work that captured the spirit of the band's live sound: " .. we knew we wanted to play something dancier, faster and fun,"

The musical bond between Neil Sheasby and Neil Jones is as concrete as their band name, Stone Foundation. It needed to be to survive over a decade of trial, error and frequent returns to the drawing board before finding the right direction, one that’s finally led them to their forthcoming album, Street Rituals,

Being an iconic band is all about chemistry. Be they the Beatles, Small Faces, the Who, the Jam or the Stranglers. It's the mix of the individuals that makes the perfect whole.

A wistful mother in the 1950s makes some simple home recordings in her family sitting room. Little could she have known that decades later, her son would become one of the most poetic and influential songwriters ever, or that more than sixty years later, the dust would be blown off her own songs. 

Visionary pianist, composer and bandleader Herbie Hancock is the second artist confirmed for this year's Love Supreme Jazz Festival.
