This week in April Reviews the Music News…
Kendrick Lamar continues to increase the hype around the release of new Marvel film Black Panther, this week it was by announcing all artists contributing to the soundtrack. As per one of my previous music news post, we know the likes of Sza and Future are included, but now we get to see the full extent of star power Marvel can attract. Take a peak at the list below.
For the Australian readers of my blog, you’ll all know Shannon Noll. Runner up in Aus Idol season one, performer of the iconic What About Me, and all ’round good Aussie bloke. Well, about a week ago he entered the jungle in successful television format I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here. I think many were wondering how channel ten managed to snag such a legend, and our questions were answered when he released his very new album yesterday. Excellent PR move Nollsy, although we all know you’ll win I’m a Celeb anyway. You can check out the record on iTunes or Spotify
Lastly in big pop news, Justin Timberlake (finally) released his album Man of the Woods. I won’t go on about it since I’ve already discussed it in a previous post, but please if you’re a fan of his work, let me know what you think! You can listen to the album on iTunes and Spotify
In Indie Music News…
Vrillon, a Bath-based group will be releasing their latest track Find You on the fourth. They have gained a loyal following in their home town, and are now beginning to branch out.

Everett Bird is next on the list of rising indie artists. The band released a new single on Thursday, in preparation for their upcoming LP which will go live on the 23rd. You can expect psychedelic elements fused with rhythm guitar and interesting vocals on their album. We get a bit of a taste of this on their single Bucket of Dark Meat.

LA-based band Bird Concerns dropped a new tune about a day ago entitled The Monster. With grunge guitar, vocal harmonies and a driving beat the single is sure to make waves in the rock scene.

If you enjoy a spot of jazz and a bit of pop, I highly recommend Maya Kally. Her new single Another Time was both written and performed by the Londoner, and she’s building up quite the following with her lyrical prowess. If you’d like to check her music out, go to her Soundcloud. You can also visit her Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
