JET 'She's A Genius' [Release Date 24/08/2009]

7": Monday 7th September – Jet, the Australian rockers, will release their third studio album 'Shaka Rock' on their newly created Real Horrorshow Records. Shaka Rock was recorded between Miami, Brooklyn, Austin, Sydney and Melbourne, with the band working side by side as co-producers with Chris 'Frenchie' Smith to ensure that Shaka Rock would live up to their own expectations. Having established themselves on the international stage as a multi-platinum selling band with 4 million albums sold world wide, 'Shaka Rock' closes the gap between the raw roots of 'Get Born' [2003] and the grace and melody of 'Shine On' [2006]. 'Shaka Rock' captures the charisma and energy of classic rock and roll with just enough swagger and contemporary flair to create something distinctively Jet. When talking about Jet's three studio albums, Nic Cester says, "For better or worse every album is a real and accurate window into how we are reacting to our lives in that point in time which is why every album is uniquely different, and I think Shaka Rock is the most honest so far." While Chris Cester says, "I can say that the band is thrilled with Shaka Rock in every conceivable way. We've had a don't think twice attitude throughout the making of this record which continues as we get ready to release it. I think 'Shaka Rock' is like when TV went colour. It's our musical equivalent. There are moments on this record that are just pure…and moments that just rock harder than we ever have before." 'She's A Genius' will be the lead single from Shaka Rock and will be premiering on BBC Radio 1 with Zane Lowe on 7th July and available both digitally and physically from August 24th. In a sea of modern rock bands, Jet are something uniquely different embracing all that was and is rock n roll.

KASABIAN 'Where Did All The Love Go?' [Release Date 17/08/2009]

C5 I 10": 'Where Did All The Love Go?' asks Kasabian's epic new single and the follow-up to their No.3 single 'Fire' – out August 3rd on Columbia, from their acclaimed No.1 album 'West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum'. Written by Serge Pizzorno and co-produced by Serge and Dan The Automator, 'Where Did All The Love Go?' is set to a thrilling, euphoric disco backdrop. "I just wanted to pose the question – what's happened? I don't want to hark back to the 60s, but you just feel people had more time for each other then," says Serge. "It's a mad disco tune." The track is littered with multiple hooks, cinematic strings and psychedelic choral refrains from Serge and Tom.

JACKIE DESHANNON Jackie DeShannon [released 24th August 2009]

Walkin' down the Line; Blowin' in the Wind; Jailer Bring Me Water; Don't Think Twice, It's All Right; Oh Sweet Chariot; Little Yellow Roses; 500 Miles; If I Had a Hammer; Baby, Let Me Follow You Down; Puff (The Magic Dragon); Betsy from Pike, and Sing Hallelujah.
