Following 2011’s Kiss Each Other Clean, which debuted at number two on the US Billboard chart, Ghost on Ghost is to be the fifth studio album from Austin-based Sam Beam. The lead track from the album, 'Lover's Revolution', can be heard below or here.
While Rolling Stone said of Kiss Each Other Clean that “pop music hadn’t seen anything like it since the heyday of Cat Stevens,” and Pitchfork said it “more closely resembles the lush, gold-toned singer songwriter records of the late 60s and early 70s —Astral Weeks, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road,” Beam felt it time to move from what he called the “anxious tension” from this record and his previous one (The Shepherd’s Dog). “This record felt like a reward to myself after the way I went about making the last few,” he says.

This week see Indians release their debut album, Somewhere Else, through 4AD.
From Copenhagen, Indians is actually one man, Søren Løkke Juul, who brought his band in to being last winter when he felt the need to challenge himself and do something different. Not aiming for anything other than satisfying a creative urge, things have snowballed quickly since. Having performed his first show back in February and self-releasing his debut single a few months later, he then signed a worldwide record deal with 4AD, recorded an album and enjoyed a fruitful summer on the road with tours throughout Europe and North America.
