Matador Records


Matador Records has acquired the complete global catalogue rights for Interpol, Pavement and Spoon, three artists it has worked with long-term already.



Larry Mattera has been appointed General Manager of Universal’s Capitol Records. “Larry is a forward-thinking and highly experienced music executive who’s been at the forefront of innovative approaches to marketing music his entire career”, says CEO Jeff Vaughn.



Like most people, barely a week goes by when I don’t long for Wu-Tang Clan and Texas to reprise their 1998 BRITs collaboration. Well, it looks like 2020 is turning around, because that day has finally come! Here’s ‘Hi’.

Phoebe Bridgers has released a video for ‘Savior Complex’ that’s only directed by Phoebe Waller-Bridge. They have very similar names, don’t they? It stars Paul Mescal, whose name is less similar to theirs, which spoils it. A ‘P’ is not enough!

Melanie C has released new single ‘Into You’. “I love this track”, she says. “It makes me want to throw myself around the dancefloor, which is obviously something none of us can do at the moment, so I don’t know whether that’s the right thing to say! Hopefully everyone will be back on the dancefloor soon, jumping around to this”.

Greentea Peng has released new single ‘Spells’. “I guess this one explores the idea of tribalism and the want/illusion or desire to please everyone, thus gain acceptance”, she says. “The process of travelling through that and coming out of the other end rather comfortable in yourself”.

A Winged Victory For The Sullen have announced that they will release new album ‘Invisible Cities’ on 26 Feb. Here’s new single, ‘Desires Are Already Memories’.

Esther Rose has released new single ‘Keeps Me Running’, her first for Full Time Hobby.
