Audio Antihero's most enjoyed records of 2013 ("Best of the Year")


Hello friends,

Happy New Year. I nearly didn't do this because it's obviously not that important but if you're curious, it's here. This isn't really a "Best Albums of 2013" list as I didn't hear a whole lot of the albums that everybody is going crazy over - this is just a list of albums/EPs that I really really enjoyed this year. If you missed any of them then I recommend them, if you didn't miss any of them then maybe we should hang out? A/S/L?

Selections are in no particular order. And I haven't sneakily snuck Audio Antihero artists (past or present) in like I wanted to.

Audio Antihero's "DREAMER VS RAVEN" Mix

Hello,

I did another of these because the people demanded it (this is the first of my lies).

Audio Antihero's "DREAMER VS RAVEN" Mix by Audio Antihero on Mixcloud


All music within moves me and I hope it moves you too.

The Josephine and Solid Space albums are sadly not widely available anymore (if they ever were) - but they are very good and worth hearing. I heard the Solid Space guy wasn't interested interested in re-issuing the album...fair enough, I suppose. Releasing records is for losers, re-releasing especially.

The Cloud and Superman Revenge Squad Band songs are taken from our illustrious catalogue and if you'd like to hear more then here's the place: www.audioantihero.bandcamp.com

The Bordellos' new album is available now from our friends at Daddy Tank Records. Enjoy. I had a hard time picking which song to go with on this as there's a lot of really beautiful ones.

Playlounge are the nicest rock band in the world and you can hear more of their music here.

The new Mason Clinic EP is available freely here - and they're brilliant previous "Prisoners" EP is available on cassette from Bomb Shop. Highly recommended.

The Drink are a new band featuring Dan and Dave of Fighting Kites and you might like to get their great new EP - HERE.

Jetplane Landing's excellent new album is out now on Smalltown America and the guy said lots of nice things about Superman Revenge Squad Band, which was very sweet of him. The album is here.

You can probably find the rest for yourself quite easily, unless you're a buffoon. In fact, Mixcloud should provide some direct buy-links for you on the player. Woo.

Cheers,
Jamie

P.S Tommy Dreamer is my hero.

AAHALLOWEEN with Audio Antihero (Charity Mixtape/Playlists/Ben Parker's new play/Free Spookiness)

Hello,

First things fucking first.


Wonderful charitable organisation and online music retailer Fair Share Music invited me (with some prompting) to put together a fifteen track Halloween playlist for them this year, which I did. It's called "The Last Mixtape On Earth" (a Vincent Price reference, not a Marilyn Manson reference) and you can see it HERE and if you want, you can buy the whole collection HERE. I tried to make it nice, so I hope you like it. 50% of the profit from all sales goes to a charity of your choice. Boom!

Plus stream a truncated version of it here on Rdio, to help you make up your mind:


You may also like to try out these rockin mixes I put together on Mixcloud the past few years. Very fond of them.   

BEN PARKER'S HALLOWEEN PLAY: "Malicious In Tent"

Ben Parker (Superman Revenge Squad/Nosferatu D2) has a new play and it's halloween themed! You can see one of the three showings of "Malicious In Tent" in Croydon from October 30th-November 1st. His previous two plays have been very well received and generally a sell-out for each showing, so I'd recommend getting involved STAT. Facebook Info: https://www.facebook.com/events/181581968694964/?fref=ts


And if you're into Superman Revenge Squad then you can rock some Superman Revenge Squad Band here:

FREE DOWNLOAD: Paul Hawkins & The Awkward Silences' "Johnny"

...and finally, you can download a free and awesome spooky session version of Paul Hawkins & The Awkward Silences' "Johnny" ...enjoy! There's grave-robbing, cannibalism and zombies.



If you're interested in Paul Hawkins + Spooky things then you might like his new book which just came out...it's one holiday away but his "Bad Santas..."  novel is available now from Amazon,  Jezus Factory Records and more.

Cheers,
Jamie

Out Now: Cloud's "Comfort Songs" + FM4 interview


PRIDE AND THE GLORY.

Cloud's "Comfort Songs" album is out now via us, your friends, Audio F'N Antihero. It's been a long busy week/eternity but it's out and people seem to really like it and a bunch of people have even bought it. It's been a really positive experience...which is rare for me and usual for them, so I figure they're to thank for that one.


Buy: Bandcamp / iTunes / Amazon / eMusic / Google Play / Fairsharemusic / 7digital / Rdio

"Cloud know their way around a pop song, and for all of the album's off-beat charms, and occasionally hard-to-grasp content, it's a true pop heart which can be found at the centre of every song that helps to make this such a rewarding listen - 8/10." - Drowned In Sound 

"A great record." - Tom Ravenscroft (BBC 6 Music) 

"Emerging 21 year old singer/producer Cloud forges a rich, heartening sound around a passionate vocal, dressing his narratives in shimmering instrumentation, like Conor Oberst in the throes of an obsession with psychedelia." - Rough Trade 

"Immediately one of my favourite albums of the year." - Sonic Reverie 

"Comfort Songs holds a strong claim as one of best albums under the ill-defined umbrella of 'indie-rock' that has been released in the last decade or so - 10/10." - Contact Music 

"In Comfort Songs I find a time for reflection, a confirmation of life and its wonder, and a sense of belonging – to whom, I’m not certain, but to someone. And I know, years down the road, this will remain a landmark album for me, with just the same resonant power. Hopefully, dear reader, you’ll be moved, too." - GoldFlakePaint 

ALSO.

Tyler/Cloud will be in interview with Robert Rotifer at 10pm tomorrow on FM4, a national Austrian radio station. Tune-live tomorrow night (in English) and read this lovely blog now (in German) - http://fm4.orf.at/stories/1722926

OH ALSO.

Tyler and I were in interview recently with The Rock Club and you can read that - HERE.

THANK YOU.
