El Hula - ³Violent Love² Out Next Week

It¹s the most eclectic album you¹re likely to hear this year ­ a mixture of alternative country, glam, rock, mariachi horns, Nick Cave-esque balladry all thrown into the blender under the guiding hand of The Strokes producer Gordon Raphael! Johnny Cash¹s pedal steel player is just one of the fantastic musicians to feature on this CD, the brainchild of London-based Kiwi Blair Jollands.

³Violent Love² is released in New Zealand next Thursday, with the lead single ³Gems² already scurrying over the TV and radio waves like a robber¹s dog! Make sure you get a copy.

LUCID 3 ­ NEW ALBUM The highly anticipated second album from Lucid 3 - ³All moments leading to this² - is released on June 17th. Sneak previews of the new album can be heard on or by going to see the band live. The ŒAll Moments¹ June/July national tour will be announced shortly.
