ALVVAYS REVEAL NEW SINGLE

ALVVAYS
Reveal new track off upcoming album

Plimsoll Punks

Antisocialites, out September 8th
On Pod via Inertia Music / Rhythmethod

Alvvays will drop their highly anticipated sophomore album in under a month, and today the Toronto-based group are giving us another taste of new music with the infectious “Plimsoll Punks”. The song is the band’s answer to Television Personalities’ “Part-Time Punks” and a winking surf opus indictment of the self-righteous who intend to condescend. Check out the new track here.

The previously released tracks “In Undertow” and “Dreams Tonite” show a band on the brink of releasing their best material yet. Pitchfork notes on “Dreams Tonite” that the “new sound nods to the Chromatics and Beach House, touching upon their moody temperament while fleshing out their emotional explorations.” Rolling Stonepraised “In Undertow” in their Playlist section, writing “Canadian guitar romantics Alvvays mix pleasant noises and chill dejection, and the result is a perfect indie-rock lullaby.”

EARLY PRAISE FOR ANTISOCIALITES

“Alvvays never second-guess their core strength: anthemic, arm-swaying hooks that aim for the stars even when the sky is gray.”Pitchfork

“The band has kept their rivers of reverb, which sometimes makes them sound as though they’re playing to an empty middle-school gymnasium, an image that fittingly blends sweetness with melancholy.” – Vulture

“Lead single ‘In Undertow’ contains all of the elements that were initially so charming about the Toronto five-piece blown up to fuzzy and dreamy new heights.”Stereogum

“The great thing about Alvvays is that they know what they do well – create objectively good, beautiful indie pop – and they are evidently doing it again with ‘Antisocialites'”Uproxx

Alex Cameron shares duet with Angel Olsen ‘Stranger’s Kiss’

Alex Cameron is set to release his sophomore album, Forced Witness, on September 8th via Secretly Canadian / Rhythmethod. Having already shared the “devastating and danceable single” (NPR Music), “Candy May,“ today the artist presents “Stranger’s Kiss,” an affecting duet with Angel Olsen that contains as much raw humanity as it does a savvy grasp of the impossible loneliness of the times. Directed by Jemima Kirke, the video stars Kirke alongside Cameron as a pair of destitute nobodies clinging to the relief of a stranger’s affection on the streets and subways of New York City.

Destroyer announce new album ‘ken’

On October 20, Destroyer returns with ken.

Of his 12th studio album and its enigmatic title, Destroyer’s Dan Bejar offers the following:

Sometime last year, I discovered that the original name for “The Wild Ones” (one of the great English-language ballads of the last 100 years or so) was “Ken.” I had an epiphany, I was physically struck by this information. In an attempt to hold on to this feeling, I decided to lift the original title of that song and use it for my own purposes. It’s unclear to me what that purpose is, or what the connection is. I was not thinking about Suede when making this record. I was thinking about the last few years of the Thatcher era. Those were the years when music first really came at me like a sickness, I had it bad. Maybe “The Wild Ones” speaks to that feeling, probably why Suede made no sense in America. I think “ken” also means “to know.” Continue reading

Kane Strang Shares Official Video For New Single, “Silence Overgrown”

Two Hearts and No Brain Out Now On Dead Oceans

Kane Strang has unveiled the official, video for “Silence Overgrown,” off new album, Two Hearts and No Brain, available now on Dead Oceans.

Crafted from footage captured by Kane and his bandmates during their US and European tours earlier this year, the video for Silence Overgrown offers a glimpse of the tour life across the globe. On his self-made video, Kane says, “landing in New York ahead of our first overseas shows and walking around that night was hands down the most surreal moment of my life. I never even thought I’d visit America, let alone be there for my music and I’m so glad we managed to capture fragments of that and the rest of this crazy year on camera. This goes out to everyone who has come see us play or let us crash at their houses or bought the album. Thank you!!!”

In addition to the recently announced New Zealand dates, Kane has added a run of Australian shows supporting Ali Barter.

Torres Sees Three Futures in her Single, Video and Album

TORRES has shared details of her new record ‘Three Futures’, which will be released on 29th September: http://4ad.co/ThreeFutures4AD

You can watch the official video for the title track, directed by Ashley Connor, here: http://4ad.co/ThreeFuturesStream

Watch Torres’ Three Futures Video Here!

TORRES is the creative alter-ego of Brooklyn-based Mackenzie Scott. In describing the album, Scott says it “is entirely about using the body that each of us has been given as a mechanism of joy.” The 10 original tracks on Three Futures embrace ecstasy, desire and indulgence rather than self-denial, and exude this idea via immersive music. Mechanized grooves are placed at the forefront, providing a framework for perforated electro-pop static, harsh gothic / industrial textures, and insistent Krautrock motifs.

For Three Futures, Scott reconnected with producer Rob Ellis (PJ Harvey), who worked on TORRES’ last album Sprinter, to record in Stockport and Dorset, England. David Tolomei (Beach House, Future Islands) mixed the album.

Following Sprinter’s release in 2015, TORRES gained critical acclaim from numerous influential publications, including Pitchfork, which named her single ‘Cowboy Guilt’ Best New Track, and the New York Times who wrote, “Her music can smolder while she considers exactly where she stands, and it can roar into feedback-edged howls when her rage or despair boil over.”
