Hawkwind – The Machine Stops (2016)

cover

Cherry Red Records are pleased to announce the release of the new album by the legendary Hawkwind. A concept studio album and a live stage show, The Machine Stops is based on E.M. Forster’s Sci-fi classic. His dystopian vision of the future is brought to life with characteristic Hawkwind style. An atmospheric, musical interpretation beginning in tunnels deep beneath the earth, where every need is controlled and catered for by the machine. The struggle to escape and find a way to reach the outer surface is a utopian dream, which could prove to be the most deadly dream of all. Forster’s visionary masterpiece provides a chilling warning of the dangers of isolation, reliance on computer technology and the effects upon society.

Sturgill Simpson – A Sailor’s Guide to Earth (2016)

coverA Sailor’s Guide to Earth is Sturgill Simpson’s third studio album, released in April 2016. Though its critically and commercially successful predecessor Metamodern Sounds in Country Music had a somewhat cohesive theme, Sailor’s Guide is more thoroughly a concept album, an extended metaphor in which he frames life lessons and advice to his young son as a guide to navigating life’s storms and temptations.

Angie and the Deserters – West of the Night (2016)

ZX

Angie’s song writing and influences, such as Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson, Gram Parsons and others, match a perfect chemistry with the boys history of rock n roll. As with the Rolling Stones, when the English play country it can work out very well. Walking the fence between country and rock n roll in the way southern rockers have done, Angie manages to keep one foot in her traditional love of soulful country song writing and the other in on outlaw country.
