After over 35 years of relentless touring and recording, heavy metal pioneers Motörhead show no signs of slowing down. To chronicle their time on tour, the perennial road dogs released The World Is Ours, Vol. 1: Everywhere Further Than Everyplace Else, a live album that tracks the power trio on their 2011 world tour. Featuring performances from Santiago, Chile, New York City, and Manchester, England, this live set not only treats fans to blistering live performances, but also features behind-the-scenes footage and interviews, giving fans of the band not only the opportunity to be in the front row for some of these shows, but the chance to take a look backstage.
The second studio album from Snarky Puppy, The World is Getting Smaller features two live drummers (Rob Avsharian and Steve Pruitt) panned left and right (as well as a guest appearance from master percussionist Jose Aponté), and marks a compositional departure from The Only Constant. It was recorded as most of the band was leaving college at the University of North Texas in 2007.
Another fantastic compilation from the seemingly infallible Omni Recording Corporation, this one focusing on hillbilly music, specifically from the vaults of Columbia Records, between 1948 and 1959, and all focused around a Dallas recording studio run by a man named Jim Beck, and had the winds of fortune blown a little bit differently, and had Beck not died prematurely, then perhaps the recording industry in Nashville would have actually ended up based in Dallas. It's an interesting story, told in great detail in the copious liner notes, as are the stories of all the artists and their songs, and oh, what an awesome collection of singers and players, most of which we'd never before heard or even heard of.
Silhouette is proud to announce “The World is Flat And Other Alternative Facts”, our fifth studio album. It contains six songs with a total playing time of nearly 50 minutes. The 18 minute long epic “Symphony for a Perfect moment”, consisting of five parts, is the longest song ever written by the band. The album is unusually diverse and adventurous. While still recognizably Silhouette, this musical journey contains influences of not only the founding fathers of progressive rock, but also of contemporary, modern acts. We won’t tell you which ones, you will have to discover for yourself! What we can tell you is that this artistic evolution is obviously due to the growing influence of the younger members of the band, who were more actively involved in the writing and arranging than on previous Silhouette albums.
