From the upcoming solo debut album, ‘Constant Stranger’, due out September 30th on Big Legal Mess/Fat Possum Records

Justin Peter Kinkel-Schuster is mostly known as the lead singer of the Oxford, Mississippi trio, Water Liars. In contrast to that band’s raw energy and often heavy themes, Kinkel-Schuster’s solo project is much gentler, with softer tones and a bit less chaos, though no lack of musicality or catchiness. Justin stopped by Serious Business Music in DUMBO to share a very stripped down — just himself and a guitar — taste of some of his music.

Constant Stranger, the debut solo album by Justin Peter Kinkel-Schuster, will be released September 30th, 2016, via Big Legal Mess/Fat Possum Records


Truck Festival with a massive list of 49 newly added acts including Kodaline, Jurassic 5 and Mystery Jets. We really didn’t expect quite this many to be announced – it’s practically an entire festival in one single announcement!

Turns out the third and final headliner will be the Irish chart-toppers Kodaline.

Last year saw the release of their second album stunner; Coming Up For Air which hit Number 1 in the Irish Album Charts and an amazing fourth place in the UK.

The lads have some achingly beautiful songs and are sure to leave Truckers spellbound.

We’re so pleased that 2016 is fully underway and can’t wait to let you all in on what’s to come over the next few weeks!

But we don’t want to leave you guessing…
So without further ado here is what’s coming up over the next 4 weeks!

  • Unveiling our brand new look #NewYearNewMe
  • Competitions to win Truckin prizes

Born in 2011 out of an unlikely pairing of teams behind Secret Garden Party and Lovebox, Wilderness is a refined concept event that feels like a cross between Glastonbury and Glyndebourne.  The extensive programme of talks, debates, workshops and luxury communal dining is arguably a greater part of Wilderness than its music and arts adventures.  From wild swimming to perfume making, Sunday services at an atheist church to holistic therapies and spa treatments, Michelin-star gastronomy to opera production—everything about Wilderness radiates sophistication, adventurous spirit and unashamed intellectualism. An elegant and smart musical line-up is guaranteed and so is significant damage to your bank balance.

Music highlights: Bjork, Ben Howard, Caravan Place, George Clinton, Ibibio Sound Machine, Hercules & Love Affair, Nick Mulvey, Nils Frahm, Parliament & Funkadelic,Roisin Murphy
