PR: Ayatollah Unveils New Album & Free Track


From Nature Sounds:

Ayatollah Unveils New Album & Free Track

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 01/05/2011

PRODUCER AYATOLLAH PREPS
NEW ALBUM "FINGERTIPS"
VINYL/DIGITAL RELEASE AVAILABLE FEB 1ST

FREE TRACK! IT CAME FROM HIS FINGERTIPS http://nature-sounds.net/assets/ayatollah/fingertips/ItCameFromHisFingertips.mp3 .

In the world of instrumental hip-hop, Ayatollah needs no introduction.  Since making his name producing tracks for hip-hop icons like Mos Def, Pharoahe Monch, Sean Price, Rakim, Smif N Wessun, Ghostface Killah, and Talib Kweli, the New York beatsmith has turned his attention to vocal-less music.  “I get peace of mind from doing instrumental albums,” explains Tollah.  “There’s no words to lead you in any one direction.  Plus I don’t have to wait on rappers to finish the creations.  I like the freedom of it.”  After eight acclaimed instrumental collections, Ayatollah is proud to announce his first vinyl offering in over five years, Fingertips.

Musically, Fingetips reflects the gritty sound the producer has become known for.  Horns blare, drums pound, basslines rumble, and vocal snippets drift in and out.  “It’s raw, it’s cutting edge, and it’s soulful,” describes Tollah.  As has been well-documented, Ayatollah still uses his trusty Akai MPC 60, meaning the music on the album did in fact come straight from the tips of some famously dusty fingers. Tollah Music will release Fingertips exclusively on vinyl and digital download on February 1st, 2011.

MP3: The Niceguys - "Toast"

The Niceguys Start The Year Off With The Release Of An Ode To Celebration And Reflection

The Song:

As we reflect on the highs and lows of the past year, The Niceguys' are treating fans with the latest single "Toast," as well as some fresh artwork courtesy of JaQ DuTcH , from their debut album The Show, just in time to celebrate the New Year. "The crux of this whole song is celebration," reveals Yves Saint, the rapper of the group. "It's looking back on your life honestly and truly being thankful for what you have now."

The bluesy, horn heavy beat captures the essence of the lyrics creating a backdrop of triumph and achievement. The lyrics are inspirational and reflect on the early success of the group while paying homage to the struggles endured to get to where they are. "And I appreciate the love, cause I felt the hate/ And I appreciate the hugs, cause I felt the scrapes," Yves Saint rhymes. "Always remember to count your blessings, celebrate life, enjoy your youth, and make the most of the time you have on this earth," states Free, one-half of the group's producer core (along with Christoph). The Niceguys just wrapped a shoot for the official music video for "Toast," which will drop in the coming weeks.

Download "Toast" for free: http://media.audibletreats.com/The_Niceguys-Toast.mp3 .

Central California’s Moonshine Bandits have been added as direct support to REHAB’s upcoming “Lack Of Luxury Tour” in January. Moonshine Bandits will release their new album “Whiskey and Women" through Suburban Noize Records on April 12th, 2011.
 
"We are amped to be going out on the road with Rehab. We did shows with them in the past and recorded a song with Danny for our new album, so going out on the road with them is great as they are already part of the Shiner family," commented Bird from Moonshine Bandits. "Tell the bars to stock their booze, because this tour is going to be one giant party."
 
"I think this pairing of Rehab and the Moonshine Bandits is perfect and its been a long time in the making," added Danny Boone from Rehab.
 
Moonshine Bandits new album “Whiskey and Women" features guest appearances by alt-rocker Big B, country singer/songwriter Sunny Ledford, and Atlanta based REHAB who produced the monstrous radio hit “"Bartender Song (Sittin' At A Bar)".
