Danish Dance Pop trio New Politics has
had an extraordinary year so far, and the seeds they’ve planted in 2014
may come to full fruition early next year when they release Vikings,
their much-anticipated third album.
The album Circa is a brilliant fusion of hard
and progressive Rock and expansive Jazz ideals and arrangements,
representing the kind of mindset that is needed to keep Jazz thriving
throughout the 21st century.
It isn’t everyday that a Rock and Roll
Hall of Fame member comes to town. But when one as talented as Ian
McLagan comes without much advance word, you have to worry if he’ll
attract the sizeable audience he deserves.
