NINA KNEZEVIC KELLY HOT PRESS Fake Blood • Yes/No Different Recordings

There's no debating. Plate up dirty beats, a heap of bass, heavenly keys and melodies, so I remember my morals and don't get too naughty, then I'm gonna' say Yes, please! Fake Blood? Yes he can!

JAMES KENDALL BRIGHTON SOURCE Holy Vessels • Last Orders at The Marshall Arms Hello Babe! Records

Starting with some of the best country rock of recent years, Holy Vessels’ debut seems like a lost classic The Byrds or Neil Young LP. But as it progresses, like Willard’s journey, it gets darker as it goes up river, ending in growing but still hummable psychedelic rock’n’roll. Great songwriting throughout.

MEL POLYDOROU BBC LONDON Jessica Clemmons • Free After Midnight Girl Records

Jessica has one of the most powerful voices to have graced the world of popular music, with echoes of Pink or Kelly Clarkson. ‘Free’ is a very catchy song, bursting with raw emotion, perfect for radio play. State of the art production, beautifully crafted with a stunning chorus, it makes for a spine tingling experience.


Triple Crown Records

Garden Window is a bold statement of intent from a band destined for big things. It transcends musical genres, ranging from visceral post-hardcore to sublime textures of blissful sound, each song executed with purpose and conviction. The new Thrice? Astonishingly, O'Brother could be so much more.


UK three-piece Monsta (pic- tured) have signed to Skrillex's label OWSLAon a worldwide one-EP deal. Their first release via the label is Holdin On, which will be digi- tally available on October 2. Billy Joel has signed an

exclusive worldwide publish- ing administration deal with RondorMusic and Universal Music Publishing that incor- porates his entire 40-year career catalogue. In the US and Canada, where his pub- lishing has previously been self-administered, the new

deal with Rondor will start October 1. Outside those ter- ritories, the arrangement will begin January 1, 2013 when his current administration deal expires. BMG Chrysalis Scandinavia has signed Swedish black metal band Watain. They were formed in the late Nineties and have gone on to win Swedish Grammies, with gold records and sold-out concerts around the world. Watain’s next full- length album will be released in 2013.

 Track name Got Me Wrong (remix)  Artist Alpines  Composer Matthews/Pockson  Publisher EMI Music Publishing  Artist Management Sam Evitt and Jack Street at Method Music  Client All Saints (shop)  Usage TV, cinema, in-store, online, 1 year  Key execs Nick Oakes (EMI Music Publishing), David Bass (Platinum Rye)

For the iconic British fashion retailer’s first venture into television advertising they needed a sound and a band that encapsulated the innovation, creativity and beauty of their Autumn 2012 range. London band Alpines were deemed to fit the bill. Having already mixed in fashion circles with the likes of Rankin their ‘night pop’ sound had the necessary atmosphere and individuality that All Saints were looking for. Taking the track Got Me Wrong from

the forthcoming EP Early Hours, the band created an exclusive mix for the campaign and even featured in the ad alongside a cast of exciting talent recruited from all walks of creativity. Explains David Bass (pictured): “Working with Alpines and EMI MP was

a great experience. The band were not only a great fit musically but also a great brand fit. I think the result is a film that exudes class in both imagery and sound.”
