Hen Ree – And When Everybody Is Watching

Hen Ree is the solo project of Richard Olsen, lead singer of the Swedish alternative rock band The Windupdeads. Fans of Olsen s previous previous work should expect the same quality of music in a completely different style, as he takes on the realm of electronic pop rock with his new release, and when everybody is watching. Hen Ree says of his new project, This has been an interesting journey for me. Writing this album has forced me to learn a lot of new recording techniques as I have entered the world of electronic music. And when everybody is watching is a glimpse into Hen Ree s past, with the lyrics retelling short stories about dealing with life in suburbia: I felt that it was time to write lyrics that were connected to me and my background, and it gave me a lot of inspiration revisiting these memories and places. Produced by long time friend and Windupdeads band mate Marcus von Boisman, and when everybody is watching is a compelling electronic album that connects the listener emotionally to Hen Ree s personal life.

A Genuine Freakshow – Oftentimes

A Genuine Freakshow are seven individuals brought together in the Reading area from a desire to blend their love of the experimental with the melody and traditional songwriting prowess of the likes of band favorites Elbow, Mew and The National. The seven-piece have found their sweet spot, creating music that is intricate but unafraid of big melodies, as witnessed throughout the album Oftentimes and in particular on lead track, I Can Feel His Heartbeats and forthcoming single Hopscotch Machine Gun Madness. The journey there was not easy however, eighteen months ago the band scrapped version one of the album unhappy with the finished product and started it again, enlisting band collaborator and unofficial eighth member Jordan Fish as producer and re-recording at his studio in Newbury.
