Rodrigo y Gabriela return this April with their first new material in five years.

The project is called 9 Dead Alive and it was recorded and produced by the band in their Ixtapa, Mexico studio. It’s something of a concept album as each song “is a personal celebration of individuals who have passed on, but through their deeds and words still resonate in the 21st century.” Check out details on the track list and the 9 Dead Alive trailer.

Slipped Discs continues with Norwegian electro pop, lots of Scottish pop goodness, two rock institutions, a Soviet born chanteuse and many more. All records that missed our top 60 list last year.

The album is a slap in the face for every rock star who has ever decided to arrange acoustic versions of their songs and forgotten that "acoustic" doesn't necessarily mean "slow and boring".
