KALABI

First up is Kalabi, an electronica outfit of the truly independent kind. Formed by Macclesfield musician Si Oliver, anyone who has ever listened to the likes of UNKLE and The Orbital will enjoy Kalabi on a similar scale. The new album, Music For Televisions is available on Bandcamp. This is a track entitled “Organoid.”

BLACK LABEL SOCIETY

Zakk Wylde returns with Black Label Society and their ninth album, Catacombs Of  The Black Vatican. And it’s here after quite a change in band personnel in the last two years, but that hasn’t stopped BLS from sounding as heavy and loud as usual. Available on the eOne Music label, this is the single “My Dying Time.” www.blacklabelsociety.com | Black Label Society on iTunes

JOHN FRUSCIANTE

Former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante is here this week with of his twelfth (yes, twelfth) solo album, Enclosure. What makes this album so different? Well, not every musician has their songs blasted off into space via satellite, giving this release a whole new meaning to getting the music out there. Available on the Record Collection label, this is a track called “Scratch.”  www.johnfrusciante.com | John Frusciante on iTunes

GLENN TILBROOK

Finally, this week it’s Glenn Tilbrook and his new album Happy Ending. Many of you may know that Tilbrook is the lead singer of Squeeze but he has quite a back catalogue of his own material, with his last album featuring Johnny Depp of all people. He also wrote “Down In The Valley”, a song dedicated to his beloved football team, Charlton Athletic (hope things pick up on that subject, Glenn). Available on the Anchor & Hope label, this is a live version of “Persephone.”  www.glenntilbrook.com | Glenn Tilbrook on iTunes
