Bell X1
Bell X1 have long been considered one of Ireland's finest music groups. Reminiscent of Broken Social Scene for their often changing collection of contributors, the band's line up over the years has included Damien Rice (when they were known as Juniper). After 3 increasingly more successful releases on Island Records; "Neither Am I", "Music In Mouth" (voted in the Irish Times Top 40 Irish Rock Albums of all time) and "Flock" (5 songs in the Top 20 at once) - the band took the bold step of setting up their own record label in 2008. In 2009 they released "Blue Lights On The Runway", which went on to become the top selling independent release in Ireland and spawned the hit single "The Great Defector." After sold out tours around the world and invitations to David Letterman, Conan O'Brien and The White House -- the band returned home to a country deeply wounded by its self inflicted economic troubles and they set out to create an album that search for answers while touching upon the nature of relationships in a world where technology, religion and politics intersect. The result is an unflinching new album - appropriately titled "Bloodless Coup

Jarrod Gorbel (of The Honorary Title)
Friday November 20, 2009, saw the final performance of the Honorary Title at a sold out show at the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, NY. The Honorary Title began several years ago as a moniker for Brooklyn singer-songwriter Jarrod Gorbel’s solo folk musings, but later evolved into the full-fledged quartet responsible for 2007’s critically acclaimed Scream and Light Up the Sky (Doghouse/Warner Bros.) Gorbel has come full circle this year, stepping out from behind the Honorary Title name and recording two remarkable new discs. His recently-released tour EP, Ten Years Older and the upcoming Devil’s Made A New Friend – Gorbel’s debut solo LP – mine classic soul, traditional folk and Americana, incorporating strings, horns and female backing vocals for a sound more lush and organic than any of his previous work.

Gorbel’s deceptively simple melodies, warm arrangements and soulful, soaring voice were always what drove The Honorary Title; his new, solo material brings those qualities into crisp focus in a way that makes the details even more beautiful. Tuesday January 19 marks the digital release of "Ten Years Older", Jarrod Gorbel's first solo EP which was previously made available on the final Honorary Title tour. The collection was recorded this past August in New York and is a taste of what is to come with his first full length solo album Devil's Made A New Friend, which is being recorded in Los Angeles with producer Blake Sennett, formerly of Rilo Kiley and the Elected.
