Scottish rock combo Travis' fourth album, 12 Memories, is slated for an October 14th release, two years after their last batch of new songs, The Invisible Band.

The eleven-track album was recorded in the band's native Scotland earlier this year and mixed by engineer Tchad Blake (Sheryl Crow, Tom Waits) at Peter Gabriel's Real World Studios in Wiltshire, England.

Memories' first single, "Re-Offender," addresses the issue of domestic violence. The band shot a video in Glasgow with photographer/director Anton Corbijn, which can be viewed at travisonline.com.

“Bizness”

Tune-Yards | 2011

The opening track to Merrill Garbus’ second album under the Tune-Yards banner (she also plays in the trio Sister Suvi), “Bizness” is a song about relationships that is as colorful as the face paint favored by Garbus both live and in her videos. Disjointed funk bass, skittering African beats, diced-and-sliced horns and Garbus’ dynamic voice, which ranges from playful coos to throat-shredding howls, make “Bizness” reminiscent of another creative medium. “I'd like for them not to be songs as much as quilts or collages or something,” Garbus said.
