Bonnie 'Prince' Billy Shares Video For 'No Time To Cry'

Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy’s new release, Best Troubador, flips through the Merle Haggard songbook, landing on pages unmoored from their time and located anew. With such prolific catalogue of resplendent songs spanning a nearly fifty year career, Bonnie and the Bonafide United Musicians were tasked with the undertaking the singular and unwavering creativity of such a figure.

Best Troubador does just that, representing an earnest and faithful reworking of Haggard’s great songs.Released on one of Merle’s lesser known albums, 1996, ‘No Time to Cry’ is a truly poignant and deft reinterpretation of Iris DeMent’s ballad on loss and growing older.

Muertos Share New Single 'Spin'

Following the release of their acclaimed debut EP, Muertos return with their vital new creation: ‘Spin’. The digital single will be released via Roadkill Records and will be celebrated at The Lock Tavern in Camden the very next evening with The Sly Persuaders, Elêphant, and Pulaski.

Formed in London, the songwriting duo of DeAnna Avis and Marc Crane bonded over their mutual love of cult horror movies and classic psychedelia. Avis is Mexican-Californian, and grew up in a musical family playing from an early age - her father is the ‘Arpista Municipal de Tequila’, the official harpist for the town of Tequila. Outside of guitar duties, shoegazer Crane (from Essex) is a comic-book artist, lending his creative hand to the band’s cover-art and aesthetic.

New cut ‘Spin’ takes Muertos’ vintage garage sleaze and dials it right up - a full sonic assault of feedback collides with a motoric beat and the band’s signature duel vocals. Drawing influences from the likes of Jesus and Mary Chain, The Kills, and The Black Angels, this single marks the announcement of the band’s first long player released later in the year.
