The groundbreaking PBS television series Austin City Limits (ACL), premieres its brand new season Saturday, October 6th, with a rare, full-hour performance from iconic British band Radiohead. The episode marks Radiohead’s long-awaited and unforgettable debut appearance, taking to the ACL stage for the first time. Viewers can tune-in to their local PBS station for the season premiere; check local listings for times.

“Hi, we’re Radiohead, we’re pleased to meet you,” says the band’s Thom Yorke by way of a greeting in their ACL debut. Taped in Austin before a concert audience at ACL’s new home, The Moody Theater, the premiere features an epic hour of music from one of the world’s most acclaimed bands. Drawing largely from their last three albums, The King of Limbs, In Rainbows and Hail to the Thief, and also touching on classics from Kid A and OK Computer as well as the odd obscure B-side and rare and unreleased tracks, Radiohead blazes through some of their most daring material in a masterful eleven-song performance. As the single most celebrated and influential alternative rock act of the past two decades, Radiohead’s musical legacy is undisputed. The band’s ACL set is a prime example of how its progressive sound and experimental structures have come to define them as masters of innovation in modern rock music, and nowhere is this more evident than in their peerless live show.

“As if there was any doubt, this rare full-hour performance by one of the most adventurous bands in rock music was well worth the wait,” says Terry Lickona, Executive Producer of Austin City Limits. “Thom Yorke and the boys are on top of their game, and their exuberance on stage really comes across. They continue to amaze, whether it’s with an old classic, a new twist or an obscure track all but forgotten.”

The new season is Season 38 for Austin City Limits, the longest-running music series in American television history, and marks ACL’s second season in its new home, ACL Live at The Moody Theater, in downtown Austin.

LUX is Brian Eno’s first solo album on Warp Records and his first solo album since 2005’s Another Day On Earth. It finds him expanding upon the types of themes and sonic textures that were present on such classic albums as Music For Films, Music For Airports and Apollo: Atmospheres and Soundtracks. Eno sees it as a continuation of his ‘Music for Thinking’ project that includes Discreet Music (1975) and Neroli (1993).

LUX is one of Eno’s most ambitious works to date; it is a 76 minute composition in twelve sections that evolved from a work currently housed in the Great Gallery of the Palace of Venaria in Turin, Italy. The album is Eno’s third for Warp, following Small Craft on a Milk Sea (with Jon Hopkins and Leo Abrahams) and Drums Between The Bells (with Rick Holland).

GRAMMY®-winning musician and songwriter Ben Harper has selected his favorite ballads for a career-spanning retrospective titled By My Side, to be released October 16 by Virgin/EMI. The collection, available in CD and digital formats, features 12 of Harper’s most unforgettable songs, including “Forever,” “Diamonds On The Inside,” and “Waiting On An Angel,” and also introduces a new ballad, “Crazy Amazing,” which is exclusive to this release. By My Side also includes a rare studio version of “Not Fire Not Ice,” previously unreleased in the U.S., which until now was available only on the international single for “Ground On Down.”

Harper will headline his first-ever solo acoustic tour this fall, beginning September 26 in Ann Arbor, MI and continuing to several other major cities across North America before heading to New Zealand and Australia. Billed as “An Acoustic Evening with Ben Harper,” the tour will include Harper’s first headline performance at New York City’s Carnegie Hall on October 10. Ever since his acclaimed acoustic performance at the inaugural Bonnaroo Music Festival in 2002, Harper has been besieged by fan requests for this kind of intimate outing. He will perform songs from throughout his career – from his 1994 debut, Welcome to the Cruel World, to his latest album, 2011′s critically acclaimed Give Till It’s Gone.

A musician, songwriter, producer, and activist, Ben Harper has released 10 acclaimed studio albums and three live records since 1994. These albums, combined with an unceasing commitment to international touring, have helped him grow a fan base that now spans several continents. Whether the soul of southern Gospel, ’70s funk, blues, reggae, or straightforward rock and roll, Harper and his trademark Weissenborn guitar continue to stun audiences with incendiary live performances and timeless songwriting. A collaborator by nature, Harper has recorded and performed with a long list of artists including Ringo Starr, Pearl Jam, Jackson Browne, Charlie Musselwhite, Tom Morello, Rickie Lee Jones, Taj Mahal, Jack Johnson and Vanessa De Matta. His album with the Blind Boys of Alabama, There Will Be A Light, earned two GRAMMY® Awards for Best Pop Instrumental Performance and Best Traditional Soul Gospel Album.

Mumford & Sons’s new album Babel is out now on Gentlemen of the Road/Glassnote Records. Buy it on iTunes, Amazon MP3, CD, Vinyl

“We wanted to do something unashamed,” says Ben Lovett. “We’re confident and happy to be where we are as a band – everything that’s happened with us has exceeded expectations, and it’s all been a surprise, it’s all much bigger than what we were prepared for. So when we came to recording this record we had a choice: to shy away from that, or to realise that people dig what we’re doing, and make something robust, with that energy.”

It was December 2010, and Mumford & Sons had been on the road since the previous summer: a glorious, eventful, yet relentless time. Standing somewhere between exhilarated and exhausted, the plan now was for the band’s four members to spend a few weeks apart, write, recuperate, and then reconvene in Nashville in the New Year, with the intention of trying out material for their second album.

The informality of the set-up in Tennessee perhaps helped to dispel any nerves they may have had about following up 2009′s Sigh No More – an album that had gone twice platinum in the US, and four times platinum in the UK. The band assembled in the front room of a house and set about sharing the songs they had been working on alone. “It was a coming together, a sharing of some stuff,” explains Lovett (keys, accordion, drums), “a pool of ideas that would come out of our time apart. So if there was nervousness, it wasn’t nervousness about the record, it was nervousness about how a couple of these new song ideas would go down. But we knew we were going to play music, and it wasn’t time to get into the nuts and bolts of it, it was more like we were starting another year from this point. And that felt very good. Very fresh, and natural.”

Out of that time in Nashville came a couple of songs for the new record – the gorgeous Lovers’ Eyes and Hopeless Wanderer. Then followed more touring, performances at the Grammys and the Brits, before the chance came in the summer to head into a studio in Bermondsey, south London. Here the band recorded the title song for the soundtrack to Wuthering Heights, as well as finding the footings for several of the new album’s songs: Babel, I Will Wait, Not With Haste, Broken Crown, Lover of the Light.

“And then,” recalls Marcus Mumford (lead vocals, guitar, drums), “we went down to a farm in Somerset and played the 10 song game, which is where you have to write 10 songs each in a set period of time without any criteria for quality.” The result of the 10 song game, the band recall with some amusement, was firstly that Ted Dwane (string bass, drums, guitar) has a natural propensity for writing murder ballads, and secondly a new album track named Reminder.

“It’s such a nice exercise because it removes your focus on perfection,” says Dwane. “You drop your guard down and you sort of bash about.” For Mumford, it also helped to re-focus to the material already amassed. “There were various points in the album where we felt maybe we needed to inject more directness, and maybe that’s what Reminder did,” he says. “There’s a bit more obscurity in this album and Reminder is a really emotionally identifiable song. I think I Will Wait Was the Same. And in terms of making the best record we could we felt like we needed those songs.”

2011 took shape slowly – throughout that year they were establishing the album’s “cornerstone songs”, discussing the new material with producer Markus Dravs – who had also steered Sigh No More (“He’s like a mind master,” says Lovett) and engineer Robin Baynton (“He has the best ears,” says Mumford “but he’ll never sacrifice vibe for accuracy”) finding more writing and studio time wherever their schedule would allow. But more importantly they were trying to work out just what kind of record they were making. “I don’t think any of us had any idea then about what we were trying to do,” says Lovett, frankly. “We had a body of songs and we just really wanted to record them. And we thought that was all you needed. But we learned that wasn’t quite the case.”

Shortly before Christmas, they decided to stand back and take stock of what they had, heading down to Lovett’s parents’ home in Devon for a review of the new material. “And that’s really where we had the vision for the album,” says Mumford, “or where it solidified.” “We were suddenly really confident and happy with what we were making,” adds Dwane. “We were all on-site, all pistols firing. I think the album started to assert its own identity a little bit, it started to make sense, and we knew then what we were making.”

Babel’s identity Dwane describes as simply “Very us. When we made the first album it was to be a snapshot of Mumford & Sons in 2009. This is exactly the same – but it’s us now, and there’s a lot of the live energy in there – that was very much what we were trying to capture. Creating the album over the course of a year, going into the studio then back out touring, then back into the studio … it’s almost as if the road has rubbed off on the album.”

The influence of the phenomenal live band Mumford and Sons have become is much in evidence on Babel, from the fire and fury of the title track to the keen and tender yearning of the album’s closer, Not With Haste. “I think over the past few years we’ve realised how much we have to play the songs that we’ve recorded,” says Mumford. “So we thought harder about these songs, feeling confident that we could play them again and again and again, and that however you record a song gives it its own life.”

As a result, several songs on Babel were recorded live. “When you’re in a room with headphones and microphones and no one else, you play it quite differently to how you play it live,” says Mumford. “Having played live as much as we have these past five years, it’s probably made us a bit more high-octane, a bit more adrenaline-filled, but because of that we probably also need to counter it more. But we really wanted to allow permission for quiet songs on the album, so that we could allow permission for them live as well.”

More than anything, there is a real a sense of completeness to Babel, a satisfying wholeness and a kind of musical and lyrical wealth – romanticism tempered by strength and vigour; a brawniness balanced by beauty. “I think there’s more subject-matter on this album, and I think we’ve grown up a little bit,” says Mumford. “I feel like it’s more exposed, more naked. Ted always talked about wanting to make an album like a story,” he adds. “Not necessarily one that has a plot, but one that you can listen from top to bottom and it makes sense. I think that’s what we’ve tried to do, and what we’ve done.”

Winston concludes, “And now we’ve finished it we can get touring again, which is what we set out to do when we started the band. Back to business.”

The 333 EP Series Limited Edition Box Set from Denver’s shoegaze-drenched night rockers A Shoreline Dream is available now, via Late Night Records.

Created as a concept album of sorts, the 333 EP Series is a reflection on the band’s lives, recorded in a three month time period, released once a month for three months during the course of spring 2012. Each disc plays a role to what was going on during these secluded sessions, which is ever-present while listening to them with ears open and eyes shut. The first EP Three is a trip to the sand dunes, the second, 3, takes place in their Barnum-based studio, and the final EP III was written with driving in mind, as each song is dedicated to the roads the band used to test their tracks.

Their latest single “103″, and the final epic song on the III EP, was written as a soundtrack to the drive up the highest paved road in North America, to the very top of Mt. Evans. As the group’s Ryan Policky explains, “this track was an experiment, and maybe one of our most unique songs, with our first song as A Shoreline Dream having a female influence. It’s a driving track that truly brings to mind driving.”

The 333 EP Limited Edition Box Set is a unique collection of songs available exclusively through toneVendor, with a quantity of only 100 pieces. The Box Set includes three custom digipak CDs, with each copy hand-numbered and signed by the band.
