Briana Marella announces new album Call It Love, and shares new song ‘Quit’

There is something enduring about great love songs. Briana Marela’s new album, Call It Love, out August 4th on Jagjaguwar / Rhythmethod, wraps its wide arms around the subject, invoking all its complexity. From the getgo, Call it Love opens with a reflection on a new love. An unfurling, ambient hum builds slowly, articulating that unmistakable head-in- the-clouds feeling that accompanies early love, before giving way to an uptempo melody and a clattering, joyful chorus. Layers and textures evoke its subtler feelings, while the lyrics speak frankly, holding nothing back. Deepening her songwriting and expanding her palette, on Call It Love Marela has made her proverbial giant leap to explore the sounds of love in beautiful, striking new ways.  Continue reading

“A phenomenal range of styles are lovingly spliced together, from funk to folk, but sweet melodies and sheer musicality make this an invigorating blast” — The Guardian

“[‘Hang’] is as jangly and melodramatic as ever, thanks to Stones-indebted guitars, swelling strings, and energetic saxes” — Entertainment Weekly

Foxygen, the LA-based duo of Sam France and Jonathan Rado, are excited to present their new video for the short- and-sweet “Upon A Hill.” Taken from their new album, Hang (out now on Jagjaguwar), “Upon A Hill” packs a punch, at only 1:37 it’s the perfect showcase for Hang as a whole, seeing France and Rado’s sensational knack for pulling together myriad strands of influences reach an elaborate, uncompromising vision. The band says: Continue reading

Angel Olsen fervently continues on in support of MY WOMAN, an album universally acclaimed as one of the very best of 2016.

Last week, she released “Fly On Your Wall” as part of the Our First 100 Days compilation, today, she presents the video for her solo piano ballad, “Pops,” and next week she kicks off an almost entirely sold out (weeks in advance!) North American tour. Continue reading

Tim Darcy, best known as the guitarist and vocalist for the Canadian rock band, Ought, will release his debut, solo album, Saturday Night, on February 17th via Jagjaguwar.

Following the release of debut single, “Tall Glass of Water,” Darcy now presents another standout number, “Still Waking Up,” in which a Smiths-esque melody builds upon an underbrush that recalls 60s AM pop and country. “Here and elsewhere, Darcy casts himself as an astute alt.rock classicist, crafting songs whose wit and verve prevents them from feeling too indebted to their inspirations” (Uncut). Directed by Meg Remy of U.S. Girls, the accompanying video for “Still Waking Up” perfect captures the romance of the song as Darcy croons about the realization of a lost love, “You are a flashing light, something about the way you blink your eyes tells me that you’re not ready, tells me that you’re still waking up alone with too many years left to plan.” Continue reading

Foxygen will release their new album, Hang, next Friday, January 20th via Jagjaguwar. Written and produced entirely by Foxygen and recorded with a 40-plus-piece symphony orchestra, Hang is the band’s first proper studio record. After sharing debut singles “Follow The Leader” and “America,” the duo of Sam France and Jonathan Rado now present “On Lankershim,” and its accompanying video, recorded all over their hometown of Los Angeles. “We love all those old big budget videos about Hollywood, so we wanted to make our own version of that.  We got out the old 66 Mustang and drove around LA and the Valley, getting shots of what LA life looks like to us.  We filmed most of it and directed it ourselves, so it would be as close to how we see LA as possible.”  While Foxygen is known for their uncanny knack for pulling together myriad strands of influences to an elaborate vision, “On Lankershim,” with its nod to LA living, is more targeted, although it’s open to interpretation whether they’re paying homage to a present day Hollywood, or pining for a Hollywood lost.   Continue reading
