Minneapolis based rockers The Honeydogs have been making music for over 20 years. Love & Cannibalism is their 11th studio release, and it might be their best, most rocking record in that long career. Previous records have frequently been called masterpieces, the band comfortably exploring varied musical styles while being true their roots in American music. Love & Cannibalism follows that up and is upbeat, featuring singer-songwriter Adam Levy’s incisive lyrics about the contemporary world. The band is on fire, mixing high octane Motown soul with British rock. This guitar heavy, horn driven pop-encrusted gem of a record cherry picks from the past but creates a totally unique angle. The title refers to the notion that if we don’t start getting along, we will devour ourselves.
For more than 12 years Marissa Nadler has perfected her own take on the exquisitely sculpted gothic American songform. On her seventh full-length, Strangers, released 20th May on Bella Union , she has shed any self-imposed restrictions her earlier albums adhered to, stepped through a looking glass, and created a truly monumental work.Today Nadler has shared “Janie in Love”, one of her most texturally rich songs to date and one that updates her signature sound with some of the most prominently featured drumming of her career.

This 5CD limited edition boxed set with 87 tracks is being released in Japan in conjunction with Bob’s April 2016 tour there, and also to celebrate his 75th birthday. The set was compiled by Kenta Hagiwara, who also wrote the liner notes, with lyrics translated by Goro Nakagawa (English lyrics for some songs aren’t included “by the artist’s intention”). The publicity says this is the first Dylan compilation exclusively released by Sony Music Japan, but this is very much untrue! There have been many exclusive Japanese releases from the 1960s onwards.
