Macbeth Music | Manchester Orchestra, Gil Scott-Heron and more..

Once again we've got a great, diverse mix of music for this weeks blog!

First up, Manchester Orchestra have released a new video podcast documenting their recent trip to Australia. Featuring a nice mixture of live and on the road footage, along with a few shots of Andy Hull's upcomin Studio Project Gatsby.

Gil Scott-Heron was one of the great musicians of the 20th Century. Seen by many as "the godfather of rap," he's inspired many artists around today, such as Kanye West. Some rare footage recently surfaced of him performing at the El Rey Theatre, in LA from 2009. Watch the video below and if you're a fan, take some time to explore more of his work.

It was awesome to see our friends, Good Old War, performing on Conan. If you missed it be sure to watch, Better Weather, below!!

mewithoutYou are one of those bands that seem to do no wrong, each record progressing from the last and each as strong as each other. They are about to release their fifth album and here is a taster from it. From the sounds of it, this is set to be another great album.

From the late great Gil Scott-Heron, to a modern great, Jay Electronica. His highly anticipated new album is *fingers crossed* set for release this year. If you're a fan of hip-hop, this is for you! Click here to listen to, Dear Moleskin.

Next up, here are two stunning live performances, firstly from City & Colour and secondly from Florence & The Machine ft Josh Homme.

If you're a fan of Good Old War, you should hopefully enjoy the incredibly talented Maps & Atlases. Their new record, Beware and Be Grateful, is released on April 17th, but you can stream it in its entirety by clicking here. Let us know what you think on our Facebook page.

To finish things off this week, we're taking a look at, Bad Bad Not Good. The experimental jazz trio from Canada have just released their new album, which features original tracks, along with covers of Kanye West, James Blake and Odd Future. It definitely makes for an interesting listen!
