by Jonathan Wilson
(45 plays) | (1 fan)

While the album was started a few years before, it wasn't until Wilson was introduced to Simon Raymonde and Bella Union that he decide to officially release the album. When The Sun asked Wilson why he signed to Bella Union, Wilson answered, "Because they are the greatest label in the world. They're the only label I've ever come across that truly felt like a family."

Some of the happiest moments of my life have been with these bredrins when we’re reasoning together.”

The title of their 2013 album was taken from a lyric in Junior Reid's 1990 song "One Blood". Koenig, a fan of the song, found the phrase "Modern Vampires of the City" humorous but also "haunting" as a title for their album.

Where I'm From
by Shelby Lynne
(9 plays) | (0 fans)

Happy Birthday to Shelby Lynne, born on this day in 1968. Lynne released five albums from 1989-1995, but didn’t manage to break through and split with her label Epic. She then disappeared from recording for several years. In 1998, she moved to Palm Springs and began work on her next album. The result was the confessional and eclectic alternative country album I Am Shelby Lynne, which was released in 1999 to wide critical acclaim. "That album came from the most vulnerable, desperate place," she recalled years later. "I think about it every day."

Frontman Jack McEwan says of the new single, "'Mundungus' is the rare post tour recovery period where all our surrounding friends and family assume we’re crippled with alcoholism, burdened with lives of social estrangement and are far too disillusioned to foresee our self destructive tendencies."
