Velvet Owl Turn Ons - May 2011

Please note: This blog posting does not include any music produced by or featuring Will.I.Am

Arctic Monkeys - Don't Sit Down Because I've Moved Your Chair The indie titans are back with a new album to be released in June. This is the first single to be taken from it, and Turner's lyrics have definitely moved on from catching taxis in Hillsborough.

Bon Iver - Calgary New material from Bon Iver is a joy to behold. And news that he has announced a UK tour for November has made us all giddy kippers at VO Towers. 

The Kills - Satellite Chosen via the process of a lucky dip, the Velvet Owl Gig Collective's official outing for May will be The Kills at Leeds Uni.  If you're interested, the other gigs in the lucky dip were Yuck, Drive by Truckers, Cults and Wild Beasts.

Friendly Fires - Live Those Days Tonight Hands up, who thinks this sounds like Living in a Box? Rumours that the new album features a cover of Matthew Wilder's Break My Stride are as yet unfounded.

The Leisure Society - This Phantom Life Ok, we appreciate it's only May, but The Leisure Society's new album Into the Murky Water is already shaping up to be one of this year's best. 

The Avett Brothers - I and Love and You While we're happy The Leisure Society are playing this year's Green Man Festival, we nearly exploded with excitement when we found out these boys were rocking up too. If you don't own the best album of 2010 -from which this song is the title track- then shame on you!

Pete and the Pirates - Mr Understanding While it does sound like a secret track from I Should Coco, it doesn't stop us from plugging in our air guitars and pulling off some Townshend-esque windmilling here at VO Towers.

My Morning Jacket - Circuital To paraphrase that famous saying 'Tired of Jim James' voice, then you're tired of life' This is phenomenal!
