COOLWAVE - “So Sad”

COOLWAVE - “So Sad”


Single released January 24th 2014 through MUZAI Records


Having released his début EP back in 2013, UK artist Jack Shea a.k.a Coolwave returns to the forefront with his latest series of works – a pair of unabashed, sixties infused pop melodies that make up So Sad, released January 24th through MUZAI Records.

A follow up of sorts to the Summer's Here! EP, which caught the attentions of New Zealand music websites such as Cheese on Toast and Undertheradar.co.nz, in part due to it's overt “kiwi-jangle” sound, So Sad was penned during the later half of 2013 – the titular A-Side a sombre ballad that was briefly highlighted on the last EP (“Summer Moon”) and the bubblegum-surfer-pop B-Side, “Girl From Blackpool.”

Once again teaming up with producer Serge Saint Rose, So Sad marks a collaborative effort with Daniel Alexander Blackball (The Attic), creating an original piece of single artwork and further helping push Shea as one of the more understated artists on MUZAI... and it's strongest musical link to the United Kingdom so far.

So Sad is available through http://muzai.bandcamp.com from January 24th.

Howard Davis: Never Too Old To Rock & Roll - Jethro Tull

As Greil Marcus recently observed in an NYRB review of Robbie Robertson's autobiographical Testimony, in rock and roll there is always an origin story. In the case of Jethro Tull founder Ian Anderson, he claims to have been influenced by his father's big band and jazz record collections and the emergence of rock music in the 1950s, but became disenchanted with the "show biz" style of early US stars like Elvis Presley...

Howard Davis Review: The Contemporary Relevance Of Denial

Denial has all the hallmarks of a riveting courtroom drama. Based on a 1996 British libel case that author David Irving brought against Lipstadt, the movie has been criticized as flat and stagey, but it nonetheless conveys a visceral clarity of vision and sense of overwhelming urgency. More>>
