Max Jury Modern World Modern World' is the second album from 26-year-old Iowa native Max Jury, set for release by Marathon Artists on 31st May. The follow up to 2016's critically acclaimed, self-titled debut, 'Modern World' is a graceful, sophisticated and truly contemporary body of work, brimming with Jury's vast and eclectic range of influences. It is an album about life, friendship and facing each day with a renewed clarity. Produced by four time Grammy nominated Robin Hannibal (Kendrick Lamar, The Internet, Jessie Ware, Anderson .Paak), the album is steeped in soul and jazz influences. The stunning 'Stillness' for example, arrives with a bassline that wouldn'tt sound out of place on a Thundercat record. 'Fading Out of You' manages to evoke Jury's newly chosen home of Paris before a huge RnB beat comes in, complimented perfectly by the warmth and subtlety of his vocal, which since his debut, has grown into an androgynous instrument that dances across his music.

FRIEDBERG YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH Friedberg was born out of a vision to create a totally new sound for London-based Anna Friedberg (writer, vocals, cowbell, guitar, and more cowbell). Backed by a stellar cast of musicians, Emily Linden (guitar, vocals), Cheryl Pinero (bass, vocals) and Laura Williams (drums), they are developing exactly that. Music that is both immediately familiar but also like nothing you’ve ever heard before. Friedberg, when literally translated, means "peaceful mountain", but this is far from the frenetic and feisty sound of Anna’s colossal new project and her debut EP ‘Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah’. The full EP’s duality of upbeat, dance-inducing songs and emotionally heavy lyrics on topics of fear, insecurity and the breakdown of a codependent relationship, feel like an all-night party that ends up with new friends on the roof in fuzzy conversation, content in life’s mysteries.
