Morrissey’s Years of Refusal

Tuesday, December 23rd, 2008


On February 17th, Morrissey will be releasing his latest LP entitled Years of Refusal. He has signed with Lost Highway, which is more known for their list of country artists including Lyle Lovett and Willie Nelson. The first single off the album will be a little tune called “I’m Throwing My Arms Around Paris”, and is set to be released one week before the album drops. The most exciting part of this news is the fact that Morrissey will be launching a North American tour that runs through Austin on April 12 at The Bass Concert Hall. I saw Morrissey over a year ago at The Backyard, and in my opinion is one of those artist that everyone must see at least once. My guess is that the show will consist of mostly new tracks from the latest album, some classic solo hits, and a track or two from The Smiths catalogue.

Here is the track listing for the new LP.

  1. Something is Squeezing My Skull
  2. Mama Lay Softly on the Riverbed
  3. Black Cloud
  4. I’m Throwing My Arms Around Paris
  5. All You Need is Me
  6. When Last I Spoke to Carol
  7. That’s How People Grow Up
  8. One Day Goodbye Will Be Farewell
  9. It’s Not Your Birthday Anymore
  10. You Were Good In Your Time
  11. Sorry Doesn’t Help
  12. I’m OK By Myself

December 21st Catch of the Day – Royksopp

Sunday, December 21st, 2008


Alrighty…this is the last “Catch” of 2008, and I am happy to say that it is from one of our more popular bands on Chillville, Royksopp. The Norwegian electronic band is putting the final touches on their latest album, which should arrive early next year. They are always going to be remembered as the band that plays that song on the Geico caveman commercial, but what you may not know is that they have a ton of good tracks besides that one track. A good example is the latest single, “Happy Birthday”, which happens to be today’s “Catch”. Since it is Christmas, we at Chillville wanted to give you a gift and let you download this song for free right here (actually it’s from Royksopp on their official site). Enjoy and Merry Christmas!

December 14th Catch of the Day – Hybrid

Sunday, December 14th, 2008


Hybrid has been heavily praised for their work on their own albums, along with their contributions on several movie scores. Mike Truman and Chris Healings make up the duo from Wales, and have often been compared to the likes of Underworld, The Crystal Method, Massive Attack, and Moby (pretty solid company to be compared to). Now what you may not know is their collaboration with notable film composer, Henry Gregson-Williams. Their resume includes such films as Man on Fire, Domino, Kingdom of Heaven, and The Chronicles of Narnia. Hybrid’s film score sound really comes out on a lot of their electronic music, including today’s catch entitled “The Formula of Fear”. Charlotte James co-wrote the song, and also lent her vocal talents to the track. Now, the original mix of this song is really upbeat, so I had to go with the Armchair Mix, which is 7:36 of pure laidback entertainment. Enjoy!
