Press Quotes /
"Grim, stripped-bare techno, razor-sharp synth-pop, and snarling electro-punk...It's terrifically conceived and even more terrifically crafted, the sort of record so perfect in its own aims that parsing out influences or agendas seems a fool's game. These tracks, this duo, this entity that is Adult.: they're a great and interesting thing, this nation's best inducers of head-banging, high-speed driving, amazed chuckles, and giddy bedroom shout." Pitchfork
"Stripped of ratty bass panic attacks and atonal splatter, consonant arrangements and blanched analogue melodies manifest in wraithlike contortions." Electronic Musician
"What's surprising about the wonky synth lines and smiting, deadpan vocals on their excellent return to the studio, The Way Things Fall, is very fresh and how of-the-moment they sound, like something you might hear at a fog-machine-filled cold wave party today, only with an emphasis on clarity of form, instead of hazy subterfuge." FADER
"Electronic elements with a sharper punk edge...it’s a living, breathing concoction of analog instrumentation and electronic aesthetic, with a minimal diffidence that pushes and pulls." BULLETT

The London SUEDE ‘HIT ME’ EP OUT TODAY.

 RELEASE SECOND OFFICIAL SINGLE FROM THEIR CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED ALBUM ‘BLOODSPORTS



HIT ME’ EP OUT TODAY.
BUY NOW ON iTUNES
WATCH THE VIDEO EXCLUSIVELY ON PITCHFORK.TV
Since the release of their 6th studio album and first in over a decade, ‘Bloodsports’ has received international critical acclaim, deservedly positioning the legendary Brit Pop band back into the top of the charts across the globe.

Their follow up single to the hugely successful ‘It Starts And Ends With You’ will be the soaring and infectious 6th track from ‘Bloodsports’ titled ‘Hit Me’, and was penned by front-man Brett Anderson, guitarist Richard Oakes and keyboardist Neil Codling.

Having recently sold out at the prestigious ten thousand capacity venue Alexandra Palace in London this spring, the five-piece will be embarking on a 5 day UK arena tour in October.

'HIT ME' EP TRACKLISTING
1. Hit Me
2. Falling Planes
3. What Violet Says
4. Hit Me (Radio Edit)

“Calling Bloodsports a comeback album almost seems to belittle just how strong a record it really is; it’s nearly as good as any they’ve put out before.”
 - Under The Radar Magazine

“Throughout Bloodsports, Suede consistently strikes the balance between decadence and elegance that marked their signature work.”   
- Pitchfork

“Boasting strength, durability and psychic stability on comeback Bloodsports, Suede shows its true dramatic worth on pensive, atmospheric exhibitions.”
 - Magnet Magazine

“Bloodsports still thrums with the darkness and danger that made the fivesome’s early records so worthy of your absolute allegiance.”
- FILTER Magazine

“Never once do they sound desperate on Bloodsports; they sound confident, and comfortable in the knowledge that this is where they all should be.”
 - Boston Globe

“(Suede) have returned to reclaim the Brit Pop crown with the excellent new album ‘Bloodsports”.
 - New York Post

“Full of the dramatic guitars and romantically anguished melodies that helped kickstart the British rock renaissance. 
- SPIN Magazine

‘The record powerfully disproves the idea that it’s impossible for veterans to re-ignite the spark…twenty years on, Suede are still jumping barriers. Reunion act turned resurrected creative force’
- The Guardian

 ‘Swells with hook-laden guitars and pulsing bas and drums…no feeding off former glories here…they prove themselves vital and contemporary’
- The Independent

‘A recalibration. Suede’s renewed charge is obvious’
- Uncut

 ‘A galvanising return’
- Mojo

 ‘An album of largely tremendous pop songs. Suede are still capable of taking you over’
- Q Magazine
'Bloodsports' is available on
iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and in all good record stores across North America.

SUN ANGLE RELEASES VIDEO FOR "RASPBERRY"

SUN ANGLE RELEASES FACE-MELTING VIDEO FOR "RASPBERRY"
PREMIERED VIA BLOODY DISGUSTING
DATES ADDED TO SPRING TOUR

"Punk rock for world music fans, and world music for the punks" - Consequence of Sound

 
"Sun Angle have captured lightning in a bottle with Diamond Junk." - Portland Mercury 

New Moss Records is excited to release the video for Sun Angle's "Raspberry," available for posting HERE, off their debut album Diamond Junk. The clip, which premiered via horror site Bloody Disgustingwas hand-animated by bassist Marius Libman and features animated versions of classic scenes from 80's cult favorites Poltergeist, Total Recall, Videodrome, Scanners, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and more. 
His first animation, Libman spent three months working on the video, averaging about an hour's work for each second of the clip. Libman explained his choice to use animation as the medium for this video, saying "Animation is, at it's core, a psychedelic medium. And I think of the noise we make as a band as a kind of a musical non sequitur, so it seemed fitting to create a music video that expressed that same psychedelic break-away from linear logic in animated form."

Sun Angle is currently in the midst of a spring tour in support of Diamond Junk. The band is also thrilled to announce that they will wrap up the tour with a Los Angeles show at El Cid on June 6th. In conjunction with the tour, Sun Angle released a live video of their song "Time Snakes," available for posting HERE. Produced by Into the Woods, the video gives a glimpse of what to expect from the Portland trio's tour. Full tour dates are below.

Produced by Danny Seim from Menomena, Diamond Junk was recorded in a brief blip of space-time in a cabin lurking in the depths of Zigzag, Oregon -- musical immersion marked by the creative abandon of all-night psychotropic inspiration and oblique strategies. 

Known in their native Portland for their irreverent, expressive, spontaneous live shows-full of aggressive elation and gritty, raucous, surreal layers of sound, the trio channels that same epic, improvisational energy into their debut album. Diamond Junk creates, as the title suggests, exhilarating tension between beauty and chaos, propelled by artful, animalistic urgency.  

The synergistic three-piece consists of Charlie Salas Humara on vocals & guitar (Panther), Marius Libman on bass (Copy) and Papi Fimbres on drums (Paper/Upper/Cuts). Central and South American footsteps traverse through Sun Angle's veins, blending SST punk, Cumbia, and pop in a wash of psychedelic filth. Sun Angle ride the line between chaos and pop, making music all it's own. 

Sun Angle Tour Dates:
5/30 - Eugene, OR - Luckey's *
5/31 - Davis, CA - Sophia's Thai Kitchen *
6/1 - Sacramento, CA - Bows & Arrows @
6/3 - Santa Cruz, CA - The Crepe Place *

WE ARE LOUD WHISPERS VIDEO FOR "GLOSSOLALIA"

WE ARE LOUD WHISPERS DEBUT NEW MUSIC VIDEO FOR "GLOSSOLALIA" 



VIDEO - "Glossolalia" [dir. Cassandra Hamilton]
MP3 - "This Time"
MP3 - "
Western Town"


Today, Impose Magazine premiered the first music video from Seattle/Japan dreampop duo We Are Loud Whispers. "Glossolalia," a highlight of their debut LP Suchness (featuring vocals from Jimmy Tamborello of the Postal Service and Dntel), is given a wistful, wide-eyed interpretation in this narrative video from director Cassandra Hamilton (Deep Time's "Gold Rush," La Sera's "Break My Heart"). Click the link or .gif above to watch the clip. Review copies of Suchness are available upon request. 

Press quotes:

"Hazy electro-chamber pop lit by lovely pale fire." -- SPIN

"If you like your music miniaturized and full of heart, it will make you happy deep down inside." -- AllMusic (4/5 stars)

"[It] sounds like it’s coming straight from a futuristic music box...claustrophobia's sweetest antidote." -- DigBoston


About the record:

Can a song cross the ocean? Is music the universal language? Can a whisper be loud?

Absolutely, says Suchness, the debut LP from We Are Loud Whispers, a dreamy duo featuring Sonya Westcott (Arthur & Yu) and Ayumu Haitani (4 Bonjour’s Parties). Seattleite Westcott met Haitani—who lives in Saitama on the island of Honshu—when Arthur & Yu toured Japan in 2007. The two have not seen each other since and are separated by the world’s largest body of water, but that was no deterrent to forming a band together.

Assembled over email, Suchness transcended geographical and language barriers—and traditional ideas of what a “band” is—in its making.

“I've been so used to getting together with band mates a few times a week in a small practice room to rehearse songs, and the way we did things was much different, obviously, since we don't live in the same country,” says Westcott. “So we'd bounce ideas off each other over email. There's a little bit of a language barrier as well, but any sort of ideas I had Ayumu seemed to understand and vice versa.”

Haitani would write and record instrumentals, upload them, and send to Westcott. As she listened thousands of miles away, she would pen lyrics to his orchestration, meditations on feeling alone even when partnered, wanting to control the uncontrollable, and on the power and promise of reaching for someone’s hand. The song titles themselves tell a story: “Starcrossed,” “This Time,” “I Hate to Say Goodbye.” After writing lyrics, Westcott would record a vocal track, upload, hit send, and wait for these starcrossed halves to meet and become complete—a process reminiscent of The Postal Service’s Give Up (fitting since Jimmy Tamborello sings on track “Glossolalia”).

Despite the modern magic required to realize Suchness, and its intricacy of its electronic orchestration and parade of horns, timpani, loops and effects, the record breathes with an organic ease. The layers of complexity never sound cluttered, melding together in Zen simplicity. Westcott’s airy whisper floats above heartbeat percussion, evoking the emotive electro of Lali Puna and Notwist.

In “Modern World,” the 7th track on the album, Westcott and Haitani ask, “Will we last or will we fade away?” Suchness, an album made between continents and between genres, seems to answer with the same duality that informed its construction. We are as impermanent as we are timeless. We are songs already sung and ones yet to be imagined. We are loud whispers. We last and we fade away.

"YES IS THE ANSWER" book celebration


Progressive Rock Party:
"YES IS THE ANSWER" book celebration
+
GENESIS: LIVE (rare archival 35mm print!)
Saturday, June 15th | 7:45pm




Crimson, Genesis, Pink Floyd, oh my! No stranger to the maligned and the misunderstood in the realm of cinema, Cinefamily is thrilled to now turn the lights up on one of our favorite musical dreamscapes -- one traditionally scoffed at by critics, and dismissed by the fairweather flock: vintage progressive rock. To celebrate the publication of “Yes Is The Answer”, the first literary anthology devoted to prog rock’s legacy (featuring contributions by acclaimed novelists Rick Moody, Wesley Stace, Seth Greenland, Charles Bock, and Joe Meno, as well as musicians Nathan Larson and Peter Case), it’s a heady stew of rare 35mm prints, excerpted readings from the book by its authors, and video rarities up the wazoo.


First up, the book’s local contributors read from their pieces, followed by killer footage of the bands in question -- and then it’s onto the evening’s archival film prints: 1977’s sublime 45-minute Genesis: In Concert, filmed in expansive Cinemascope and unscreened in Los Angeles for decades -- and 1983’s Kilroy Was Here, Styx’s 10-minute dystopian filmed “intro” to their worldwide tour of the same name. “Yes Is The Answer” is the first book that dares to thoughtfully reclaim prog rock as a subject worthy of serious consideration -- so take a Topographic Journey into the 21st Century Schizoid land of Prog-Lit!

Genesis: Live Dir. Tony Maylam, 1977, 35mm, 45 min.
Kilroy Was Here Dirs. Brian Gibson & Jerry Kramer, 1983, 35mm, 10 min. (Archival print courtesy of the Academy Film Archive)



This event is in conjunction with Skylight Books' live discussion of "Yes Is The Answer" with Marc Weingarten and Tyson Cornell, on Thursday, July 13th, 7:30pm!

Ponderosa Stomp Releases "Riot On Sunset Strip" Mini-Doc

Ponderosa Stomp Releases "Riot On Sunset Strip" Mini-Doc
Featuring the Feral Garage Line-up for 2013
The Standells, Ty Wagner, The Sloths, Gaunga Dyns

Over the years, the Ponderosa Stomp has proudly presented the greats of rock n’ roll, from Link Wray and the Flamin’ Groovies to The Trashmen, Green Fuz, The Seeds, The Alarm Clocks and Dr Specs Optical Illusion. Unhinged pioneers of raw fury, these bands ignited teenage raves and rebellious rioting on stages across the US, becoming icons of a movement that continues to flower. 2013 is no exception, as stars of the Sunset Strip scene The Sloths, Ty Wagner and The Standells perform with proto-punk New Orleans rockers the Gaunga Dyns.

Watch "Riot on Sunset Strip" mini-doc here:
The Stomp brings The Standells to headline the Festival, which runs October 3-5 in New Orleans. Best known for their hit “Dirty Water,” the band personified the youth movement in Hollywood during the 60s, where the kids clashed with over-zealous cops while beatniks ran amuck.  The band appeared in the cult classic “Riot on Sunset Strip” as well as numerous other movies and TV shows, notably appearing as the “Love Bugs” on the Bing Crosby Show and as themselves on The Munsters. Other slices of leering, lecherous garage genius followed with “Try It” and “Why Pick on Me,” as well as the dark horse ode “Sometimes Good Guys Don’t Wear White.” The Standells legacy remains strong; “Dirty Water” is played after every home victory by the Boston Red Sox, Celtics and Bruins and it is listed in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame as one of the 500 songs that shaped rock n’ roll.

The Gaunga Dyns are one of the most lethal garage combos to blaze a trail of glory across the New Orleans scene in the ‘60s. With only two 45 records to their name, the band’s impact was huge compared to their output. Recorded by Cosimio Matassa for Minit Records imprint Busy-B, they were hardly your average teen rockers. “Rebecca Rodifer,” a vaguely shrouded tale of a teen girl who doesn’t survive an abortion, is twisted and terrifying.  “Clouds Don’t Shine” is a study in dark, moody intensity, while they bring the fuzz on “Stick with Her” and “No One Cares.”  The band’s tenure was short but sweet – their sides are hunted by collectors world-wide. Fans will find them featured in the Ponderosa Stomp Foundation’s exhibit, Unsung Heroes: The Secret History of Louisiana Rock ‘n Roll at the Louisiana State Museum.
Another short-lived, but much loved band of the era, was California’s the Sloths. The band’s lifespan lasted from only 1965 until 1966, but their sole 1965 recording with the sides “Makin’ Love” and “You Mean Everything” was a barnburner, ensuring they’d be unforgettable. The band laid down their instruments in 1966 and did not pick them up for 46 years. Through the efforts of a private detective, the band reformed and they retain the raw primitivity and unspoiled stomp that have made their records highly sought after almost 5 decades later.

Ty Wagner emerged from California in 1966 as front man of the Scotchmen and
the Ones, where he penned the ultimate proto-punk anthem “Slander” and his outsider anthem “I’m a No Count.” The sides were hits for Chattahoochee and Era Records respectively and were recorded at Gold Star Recording. Wagner did numerous TV appearances and was a stalwart of the 60s Sunset Strip scene, performing at It’s Boss, The Trip, the Brave New World, the Rendezvous and other nightclubs where rebel music fans danced.  Wagner performs at the 2013 Stomp in New Orleans in the wake of his first record in decades, a new 45 featuring two unreleased numbers from the mid-60s.

LUCY SCHWARTZ’S NEW SINGLE “BOOMERANG”

LUCY SCHWARTZ’S NEW SINGLE
“BOOMERANG” AVAILABLE HERE
SONG FEATURED IN NEW SEASON FINALE OF
“ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT”
FULL-LENGTH ALBUM TIMEKEEPER OUT AUGUST 6


Boomerang,” the first single from artist Lucy Schwartz’s highly anticipated album Timekeeper, is available for streaming on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZVq9edB3HcM. The song recently premiered on Entertainment Weekly’s website at http://bit.ly/15g4fJb and is featured as the last song in the final episode of the new season of “Arrested Development,” which premiered Sunday on Netflix. Mitch Hurwitz, the show’s creator, declares “Lucy’s latest album is her Sgt. Pepper. Unbelievable. I can’t stop playing it or thinking about it. So brilliant and amazing.” Lucy also makes an appearance in the show alongside Michael Cera. “Boomerang” is available for download on iTunes at http://bit.ly/1adIdHW, along with a second song, “Time Will Tell.” Both songs will be part of the new album Timekeeper due for release August 6. More info is available at Lucy’s website: http://lucyschwartzmusic.com/.


Los Angeles-based Lucy Schwartz co-produced Timekeeper with producer d.Fly, except the song “Boomerang” which was produced by Matt Hales (aka Aqualung, who also collaborated with Lucy on the duet “Cold” for the Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1 soundtrack). All songs were mixed by Shawn Everett (Sara Watkins, Weezer) at Zeitgeist Studios, and the record was mastered by Bob Ludwig (Wilco, Bruce Springsteen, The Who).  Lucy describes Timekeeper as a very visual project. “My dream is for this record to open up the listener’s imagination. I want to use visuals to really create a tangible world for each song. I want people not only to hear the music and feel the music, but to see the music.” Accordingly, Lucy has been teaming up with an array of visual artists to create the fantasy world of Timekeeper, including renowned photographer Tierney Gearon, with whom she created the dynamic monkey photographs that adorn the single’s cover.


23 year-old Lucy has performed on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and opened up for artists including The Civil Wars, Moby, A Fine Frenzy, and Tom Odell. She has also shared the stage with Elton John (The Yamaha 125th Anniversary) as well as Sarah McLachlan and Sheryl Crow (Lilith Fair). Additionally, Lucy has written original songs for Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1, Shrek Forever After, Mother & Child, Post Grad and The Women. She also wrote the international theme song for the TV show Parenthood, and currently, her song “Feeling of Being” is featured as the end credit in the critically-acclaimed film, What Maisie Knew (in theaters now).
