AIM Awards nominees: artists focus

“The AIM Independent Music Awards recognises the real heroes of music; those who do things their own way, make phenomenal music and inspire us all with their creativity, commitment & brilliance.

”

We would like to congratulate all the AIM Awards nominees and put under a special spotlight the fantastic artists we had the privilege to work with!

Alabama Shakes – “Sound & Color”, ATO Records/ Rough Trade Records.
Nominated for “Best Difficult Second Album”

The second album might be the most difficult one for a band, but Alabama Shakes surely were up for the challenge, and “Sound & Color” is the sounding proof that the second album might be as well the most beautiful (yet).

“You can only marvel at where they will go next.” The Guardian

Every single layer of the album works in unison, like a heavily played Motown record found years later in an abandoned Southern recording studio.” Consequence of Sound

Alabama Shakes “Sound & Colour“, out on April 21st via Rough Trade Records.
Courtney Barnett, “Sometime I Sit and Think, Sometimes I Just Sit”, Marathon Artists. 
Nominated for “Hardest Working Band or Artist”, “Independent Track of the Year” with “Pedestrian at Best” and “Independent Breakthrough of the Year”

Sometimes we sit and think about the awesomeness of Courtney Barnett. What can we say that has not been said yet about the incredible talent of this Australian artists and her band? Nothing, just keep praising her work and sending our love in her direction.

“Listening to most – if not all – of Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit is a richly rewarding experience, one that increases with each listen.” The Guardian

But wherever Barnett ends up, we’re going to want to go with her. She’s a talent we’ll be following for decades.” Rolling Stone

Courtney Barnet

Songhoy Blues, “Music in the Exile”, Transgressive Records.
Nominated for “Independent Breakthrough of the Year”

The energy that gushes from this band is incredible, mixing up Mali’s traditional music (specifically of the Songhoy ethnic group) with modern influences created a vibrant flow we fell in love with at the first listen.

You can hear both the exile’s homesick yearning and the musician’s rebellion in the 11 songs that appear on their debut album.” The Telegraph

Songhoy Blues create a distinctly modern and youthful take on the familiar Desert Blues template” The Line of Best Fit

Songhoy Blues “Music in the Exile”, Transgressive Records

FKA Twigs, “LP1″, Young Turks.
Nominated for “Independent Breakthrough of the Year”, “Independent Track of the Year” with “Two Weeks” and “Most Played New Independent Act”

It’s almost impossible to look away from the fascinating artist who FKA Twigs is, “LP1″ is a magnetic, unbelievably good album, she’s a modern siren and we got hooked.

Fragile, heavenly and utterly compelling; this debut paves the way for boundaries-pushing pop. This is music that shatters you with a single tap.” Clash

Confidently frail and hesitant, LP1 is a refreshing reaction to, and a calm assault upon, the unfathomably fast-paced total noise of the current age.” Drowned in Sound

FKA Twigs "LP1", Grammy, nomination, Grammy 2015, Music, Key production

 

Ghostpoet,”Shedding Skin”, [PIAS] Recordings.
Nominated for “Independent Album of the Year” and “Independent Video of the Year” with “Sorry My Love, It’s You Not Me”

We didn’t have any doubts about Ghostpoet immense talent and “Shedding Skin” is just a further proof that he is not a meteor, but a brilliant star that will shine for a long long time.

“You’re left with dual perspectives that aren’t quite duets, anthems of vague disquiet, and an utterly satisfying sense of an artist following his own directs and nobody else’s.” Mojo

The record is alive. It has punch, guts, heart, all the things you would hope for really, whilst at the same time maintaining the central potency of what made Ghostpoet so great in the first place” Drowned in Sound

GhostPoet "Shedding Skin"

Father John Misty, “I Love You Honeybear”, Bella Union.
Nominated for “Independent Album of the Year with “I Love You Honeybear”

Playful melodies and dark lyrics (and viceversa) to describe love the way it is, not the way you want it to be, at least for Father John Misty. Definitely one of the most interesting singers songwriters of today’s music scene.

This is a gorgeous album, one whose pure beauty and unadulterated emotion” Exclaim

“If there’s a funnier, stranger and more touchingly bizarre album released this year, it will be a very good year indeed.” Billboard

Alt-J, “This Is All Yours”, Infectious Music.
Nominated for “Independent Video of the Year with “Hunger Of The Pine”, “Best Live Act” and “Independent Track of the Year” with “Every Other Freckle”

Their stunning second album is indeed a worthy successor to “An Awesome Wave” and despite Gwil Sainsbury’s departure, “This Is All Yours” is a masterpiece.

“Overall, then, This Is All Yours is a respectable follow-up to an acclaimed debut that raised the bar for alternative music.” Drowned in Sound

“An impressive expansion, with hugely improved connectivity.” NME

Jamie xx, “In Colour”, Young Turks.
Nominated for “Independent Track of the Year” with “Loud Places”

We literally consumed Jamie xx debut album “In Colour”, played over and over, we never get bored of it, if it didn’t get to you on the first listen, try again and never let go.

“In Colour reflects brightly, a phenomenally poised and universally approachable solo debut.” Consequence of Sound

A glorious, technicolour triumph.” Clash

Jamie XX "In Colour", out on June 1st via Young Turks.

 

Ibeyi, “Ibeyi”, XL Recordings.
Nominated for “Independent Video of the Year” with “River”

Impressive debut album for Ibeyi, the Diaz twins don’t disappoint with intriguing vocals and a mixture of sounds that just make us want to hear more and more from this wonder duo.

“Contemporary, ancient, tropical and cosmopolitan: Ibeyi’s debut album pulls off an audacious series of culture clashes.” The Observer

It’s refreshingly unique. Ibeyi is an ambitious debut record from the twosome, and one that deserves to be heard by as many people as possible.” The Line of Best Fit

Ibeyi “Ibeyi”

Enter Shikari, “The Mindsweep”, [PIAS] Recordings. 
Nominated for “Independent Album of the Year” 

The Mindsweep from start to finish is an exciting album to listen to and one you won’t get bored of anytime soon. Shikari have already made their mark worldwide, this album is just them putting their stamp down.

 “A defiant record from a band who’ve made a career of doing their own thing: Enter Shikari have upped their game again.” Q Magazine

“The Mindsweep is Enter Shikari at their most inspirational and consistent and as a result, their best record yet.” Drowned in Sound

"The Mindsweep", [PIAS] Recordings

The Charlatans, “Modern Nature”, BMG.
Nominated for “Independent Album of the Year”

With “Modern Nature” The Charlatans have really proven that they still got it, the album might have not been what old times fans expected to be, but it definitely didn’t disappoint them or us, kudos. 

“Their most remarkable record in years” Mojo

“Modern Nature is very much the welcome return of an old friend who’s taken more knocks than is fair, and despite the battering and the bruising, this is the first and positive step into a bright new tomorrow.” The Quietus

The Charlatans "Modern Nature"
