Debut EP from New Jersey alt band Young Rising Sons out now

posted by Vu Nguyen

New Jersey alt band Young Rising Sons release their debut 4-song EP today on "Dirty Canvas/Interscope Records". The EP contains the current single “High” which went viral on social media in a digital storm of shares last month when they released the summertime, feel-good
video. The EP also contains the contagious song “King Of The World” which premiered last week on Pigeons and Planes. The other 2 songs on the EP Turnin' and Red & Gold are both equally infectious and another sign of what’s to come for this talented 4 piece.

Young Rising Sons are coming up swift and steady with the release of their EP as well as heading out on a tour with Little Daylight this August. "High" even caught the attention of BBC Radio 1's tastemaker DJ Zane Lowe and the track was named as Zane's "Next Hype" track receiving continued plays on his show.

Showing no signs of slowing down, the group have stepped into the big leagues with style and talent.

Quintron And Miss Pussycat Announce US Tour || New Album Forthcoming In Fall

posted Jul 22, 2014, 6:40 AM by Vu Nguyen

Quintron and Miss Pussycat have been making genre-defying noise and hard rocking dance music in New Orleans for over fifteen years. The majority of their 14 full-length albums have the psychedelic soul of traditional New Orleans party music filtered through a tough distorted Hammond B-3 and a cache of self-made electronic instruments. Quintron has also released strange soundscapes based on inner-city field recordings of frogs and neighborhood ambiance as well as holing himself up in THE NEW ORLEANS MUSEUM OF ART for three months to create the double LP, "Sucre Du Sauvage" (Goner, 2011).

In addition to his own recordings, Quintron has played organ on a number of other records, most notably THE OBLIVIANS "9 Songs" and STEVE RILEY AND THE MAMOU PLAYBOYS "Grand Isle" which was nominated for a Grammy in 2012 and featured the Quintron penned song "Chatterbox".  In the spring of 2014 Quintron and Miss Pussycat were invited to be resident artists at the ROBERT RAUSCHENBERG FOUNDATION in Captiva Florida. Quintron took that time to complete his weather controlled analog drone synthesizer called WEATHER WARLOCK and Miss Pussycat invented an inflatable puppet theater that fits into her purse.

In late 1999, Quintron patented an instrument called THE DRUM BUDDY, a light activated analog synthesizer that creates murky, low-fidelity, rhythmic patterns. A few high profile DRUM BUDDY clients include guitar virtuoso Nels Cline, Laurie Anderson, Fred Armisen (of SNL / Portlandia but also a life-long musician), and DJ Mr. Dibbs of the Minneapolis Hip Hop group Atmosphere.

MISS PUSSYCAT plays maracas and sings, as well as entertaining all age groups with her highly amusing technicolor puppet shows. Hers are complex puppet shows beautifully crafted for intimate venues of late night drinking and dancing: tactile, idiosyncratic characters, pithy dialogue, electronically pixilated soundtracks, and trippy black light effects create a visual and engaging overture/finale to Quintron and Miss Pussycat's music sets. Quintron aids in puppet manipulation and voicing. Miss Pussycat, in turn, sings both lead and back-up vocals and plays maracas during Quintron's performances.

The Quintron / Miss Pussycat experience is one of barely controlled electronic chaos, "Swamp-Tech" dance beats, small explosions, incredible clothes, and entertaining puppet stories. You can see them perform regularly at the SPELLCASTER LODGE New Orleans, Louisiana or on one of their many tours around the world. This act somehow has equal relevance in sleazy nightclubs, pizza restaurants, and university lecture halls."

Erasure Reveals New Single, Worldwide Tour Details

posted Jul 21, 2014, 8:25 AM by Vu Nguyen

Erasure
(Vince Clarke and Andy Bell) has unveiled the first track from their eagerly awaited new album, The Violet Flame. ‘Elevation’ is out on July 22nd, preceding the album release on  September 23rd, 2014.
 
Listen to the brand new track - a hedonistic, euphoric rush of ode-to-love just waiting to fill dance floors far and wide this summer.
 
From the moment that The Violet Flame opens, the listener is drawn into Erasure’s empowering sense of optimism. Once again - as they approach 30 years of songwriting, having sold 25 million albums and achieved more than 40 hit singles - with their 16th studio album, the globally-adored duo of Andy Bell and Vince Clarke have created another stunning success of emotionally-charged electro-pop with euphoric, synth-fuelled melodies that strike instantly to the heart.
 
The Violet Flame, recorded in New York and London and produced by Richard X, sees Erasure express an infectious zest for the future. The album’s creation – so soon after the release of 2013’s Snow Globe - followed a different path to previous Erasure releases. As ever, the songwriting was entirely collaborative but this time, the warmth of Miami gave a perfect backdrop for the album writing and the starting point, unusually, was Vince’s pre-recorded dance grooves. This proved to be a more instant method of songwriting which saw the songs flow at great speed.
 
“I found them very inspiring and the tunes just came out”, reflects Andy. “This time it was much more off the top of the head. All that we said was that we’d like to make an uptempo dance record. And that’s how it came out.”
 
The Violet Flame is available now to pre-order. As well as the standard version, The Violet Flame will be available as limited 2CD edition, which features Erasure’s legendary live performance at Mute’s Short Circuit festival in 2011. In addition, there will be exclusive versions which include the 3CD deluxe box set as well as a VIP ticket bundle which will feature the album, premium ticket and opportunities to meet the band and much, much more.

The Violet Flame Tour begins in Miami on September 12th, with special shows through the US including Las Vegas in Halloween and New York City on New Year’s Eve (full details below). Tickets are on sale now, full details from: http://www.erasureinfo.com/concerts/

ROYKSOPP & ROBYN reveal brand new video/short film for 'Do It Again'

posted Jul 21, 2014, 8:19 AM by Vu Nguyen

The video for ‘Do It Again’ was shot in Mexico by award-winning Danish filmmaker Martin de Thurah. The short film is called ‘Our Hearts' Desires' and is set in an unspecified era where a revolution is in the making. It tells the story of desire, ecstasy and forbidden love.  Says de Thurah, "'Do It Again' feels like it's an unstoppable pop mantra of something out of hand. A spiralling hypnotic maelstrom. The video touches our hearts' desires:  deep passions; revolutions full of hope and excitement; a dream of freedom; obsession; the ecstasy and escapism; the darkness. And it ends in a mix of violence and laughter, freedom and the loss of free will. All of this somehow ends on a note of hope through struggle. Something worth fighting for. Do it again."  Read more about the collaboration between Martin de Thurah, Röyksopp & Robyn on Dazed Digital.

Svein Berge from Röyksopp adds “I feel that the video in a clever way manages to emphasize one of the main themes of the song - doing something that might be considered morally wrong, and yet going through with it, fully aware of the consequences and potential repercussions. Some of these actions are driven by choice - others by necessity." Robyn concurs, saying, "I’m pleased that, for me, the video stirs up a feeling of chaos which is what we talked about quite a bit when we wrote 'Do It Again.' Life takes you to a critical point and even though it might not make you happy, when it´s over, you want to go back.” Adds Röyksopp's Torbjørn Brundtland, “Being there on these locations, the crew, the actors and the locals made it an unforgettable experience. Oh, and yes, in a good way, I might add."


Röyksopp and Robyn are currently playing their sold-out ‘Do It Again’ tour with dates throughout Europe, Scandinavia, America and Canada. Robyn and Röyksopp leave the Bowl dancing, and far from alone.” (Los Angeles Times)


Röyksopp and Robyn’s ‘Do It Again’ mini-album hit #1 on the iTunes Electronic chart in over 10 countries including the UK, U.S, Germany, Sweden, Holland, Canada and Japan and entered Top 10 on the iTunes Album chart in over 10 countries including U.S, Australia and France with a #1 chart position in Sweden. ‘Do It Again’ entered the Official UK Album Chart mid week at #8. The ‘Do It Again’ mini-album serves as an introduction to the new Röyksopp album. Details to be announced.

The already acclaimed upcoming release features nine tracks, each written and performed by multi-instrumentalist Elly Jackson and co-produced with Ian Sherwin. The reviews coming in have been incredible with Rolling Stone raving, "her vintage synth-pop magnificence…has warmed into the sort of electro-disco drama you imagine the Daft Punk robots blasting as they cruise down Highway 1." while Billboard exclaimed, "La Roux returns with a bold new look and a thrilling new sound." We couldn't agree more!

On the eve of release for Trouble in Paradise, La Roux has also announced a fall headlining tour that will kick off in Canada at Vancouver's Commodore Ballroom on September 18 before heading stateside for a ten show run.

Ben Frost: NEW Tour Dates

posted Jul 17, 2014, 3:10 PM by Vu Nguyen

Ben
Frost
has just released details of his autumn live dates, announcing shows in Europe, Japan, Canada, US and Mexico. The tour starts on September 20th in Oslo and includes performances at Unsound Festival (Poland), Mutek (Mexico) and ClubToClub (Italy) - with further dates to be announced.
 
These dates follow the release of Ben Frost’s acclaimed album, A U R O R A, out now on Mute / Bedroom Community (Iceland). Already a critics favorite, A U R O R A has been featured heavily in ‘Albums of the Year So Far’ lists and is described by The Wire as “Frost’s most fully realised work to date”, by Rolling Stone as having “garnered enough enthusiasm to snowball into the ambient event of the year” and by Resident Advisor as “the darkest and most powerful recording of his career”.
 
The album was performed by Ben Frost with Greg Fox, Shahzad Ismaily and Thor Harris and largely written in Eastern DR Congo. Starved of all the adornments of its predecessor (2009’s BY THE THROAT), A U R O R A is wholly absent of guitar, of piano, of string instruments and natural wooden intimacy. Instead, it offers a defiant new world of fiercely synthetic shapes and galactic interference, pummelling skins and pure metals.

Frog Eyes set to tour North America for the first time in four years in support of Carey's Cold Spring

posted Jul 17, 2014, 10:44 AM by Vu Nguyen

Frog Eyes 

Carey's Cold Spring 

(Paper Bag)

Street Date: June 17, 2014 

 

Track List:

1. The Road is Long    
2. The Country Child    
3. Your Holiday Treat    
4. Don't Give Up Your Dreams    
5. Needle in the Sun    
6. Noni's Got a Taste For the Bright Red Air Jordans    
7. A Duration of Starts and Lines That Form Code    
8. Seven Daughters    
9. Claxxon's Lament
Frog Eyes is set to tour North America in support of the physical release of the acclaimed Carey's Cold Spring.  Only a few months ago it appeared that Carey Mercer would not be touring any longer when he was diagnosed with throat cancer.  Recently, Mercer was given a clean bill of health and was cleared to begin touring.  A full list of dates can be found below. 
 
Paper Bag Records will release Carey's Cold Spring on vinyl and compact disc worldwide on June 17th. The label will also be releasing Carey Mercer's book called Clouds of Evil, a collection of essays compiled for his son Ivan. Essay titles include:"A Story about the Time I Broke Up Wolf Parade, a Popular Independent Rock Band, by Starring in Their music Video and accepting One Thousand of Their Dollars" and"A Few recollections of the Time my Band FrogEyes Went to Moscow."
 
Just two days after Carey Mercer completed the final mixes for the record, he received a call from his doctor telling him that he had throat cancer. He had been working on the album since 2010 and chose to self-release the record through Bandcamp.
 
News like this has a way of understandably overshadowing the music itself, and, thankfully, Mercer's cancer seems to be departed, leaving us the opportunity to appreciate the record without such a dire context. The joy here is tripled: he's not going to die, and, as a bonus, the record is awesome. And these victories are made even sweeter with the addition of tour dates.
 
Mercer explains that Carey's Cold Spring is not only built from personal experiences but also from what he saw over the last three years of recording: riots, storms, mass protests, the dissolution of any collective faith in our political and economic institutions. But it's not all doom and gloom: He describes the record's duality: "deeply fearful, almost paranoid, the sound of a person grinding his or her teeth in the night. But just a part of it. It's also the sound of the birds in the morning, I hope."

Hot off the back of their celebrated live showcases at SXSW and signing to 300 Entertainment in the U.S., Panama will return to the states next month for their first ever U.S. headline tour which includes a date with Chvrches. The highly anticipated release of their 2013 EP, Always, which was re-released in March by 300 Entertainment with new single, "Strange Feeling," saw Panama soar to the top of the Hype Machine charts, accruing almost 2 million Soundcloud plays, BBC Radio 1 airplay and taking out a coveted spot in Triple J's iconic Hottest 100. More recently, Panama's "Always" has provided the soundtrack for a Banana Republic ad campaign and been in rotation on Sirius Alt Nation. Panama will bring an all new live show to their burgeoning U.S. fan base before heading to Europe for a round of festival performances. A full list of tour dates is below.
