Ray Davies’ well-documented thrall with the U.S. continued to deepen, even as it found new complexity on the 2017 U.K. Top 20 album Americana. He keeps digging here, picking at old scabs (including his scary encounter with a mugger in 2004) but also exploring the promise that this country still offers. Like most sequels, it’s not quite the equal of what came before. In fact, the album’s best lyric – “All life we work, but work is bore / If life’s for livin’, what’s livin’ for? – comes from a redo of a Kinks song from 1971. Still, that doesn’t speak so much to the relative quality of Our Country: Americana Act II as to a towering legacy that he has to wrestle with every day.

This is a demo version. The simplicity of the recording and the piano captures the feeling of being alone and in love so well. I Go to Sleep is a song written by Ray Davies. It was never recorded by the Kinks, but Ray Davies‘ demo is included as a bonus track on the reissue of their second studio album Kinda Kinks. “I Go to Sleep” was covered by The Pretenders and released as the fifth single from their second studio album Pretenders II. The song was later included on the Pretenders‘ compilation album The Singles. The song was also featured in the films Romanzo Criminale and Sweet Sixteen.

Unreleased song by Ray Davies/The Kinks from 1965

 

We put our spin on Sia’s “Elastic Heart” with producer and friend, John Fredericks (John The Baptist), which we premiered earlier this week .
It’s a song that moves us in its fierce empowerment to bounce back from what brings you down and is a reminder that each of us has the strength within to own the heart we want to own. We’re excited to officially release the song into the world today on all digital services!.

We are ecstatic to announce we’ll be extending our fall tour to join forces with the sensational San Fermin. The live performance experience is our absolute favorite and we are over the moon to get to share our debut record in so many beautiful cities, night after night.
