Cold War Kids announce the release of ‘Tuxedos’, a digital EP available September 17th through Downtown Records and MapleMusic Recordings. The six-song collection includes two previously unreleased tracks,  “Romance Languages #2” and  “Pine St.”, as well as covers “Aeon” (Antony and the Johnsons) and “You Don’t Come Through” (The Band). ‘Tuxedos’ also features the self-titled original album track and an alternative version of “Bottled Affection” from their April 2nd release, Dear Miss Lonelyhearts.

Cold War Kids kick off their headline tour on Thursday, August 15th at San Diego’s House of Blues and will continue on the road through November 6th at St. Lake City’s The Depot.  The run will include shows at Stubb’s Amphitheatre in Austin, TX, The Wiltern in Los Angeles and the Sonic Boom Festival in Edmonton.

“Fits and starts of brilliance on the first three records, Cold War Kids have hit their stride and locked into a very intense groove for the fourth,” says Esquire Magazine. NME adds, “(Dear Miss Lonelyhearts) has gone back to the sort of idiosyncratic weirdness that made us fall for them in the first place.”  Relix states, “There’s a natural flow to the songs on this disc … a complexly drawn collection. And that blues sensibility you always liked best about them is happily still there.”

White Denim’s New Album ‘Corsicana Lemonade’ Is Set For An October 29th Release Via Downtown Records And MapleMusic Recordings

white denim

Listen To The First Single ‘Pretty Green’ HERE

 Downtown Records and MapleMusic Recordings will release Corsicana Lemonade, the new studio album from Austin-based White Denim, on October 29. Featuring production on two songs and a full mix from iconic songwriter Jeff Tweedy, the 10-song collection channels the group’s manic live virtuosity into a rollicking 10-song mission statement.

The band will play the Austin City Limits Festival and tour the U.S. with Tame Impala this fall. Tickets are on sale now for the run, which will kick off at The Pageant in St. Louis, MO on October 8. In a live review, the LA Weekly observed, “it’s refreshing to see a band without pretense or shtick, whose only agenda is to play the hell out of their instruments and bring the audience along for the ride.” With ‘Corsicana Lemonade’, White Denim consciously set out to capture the feel of its lightning-rod live sets. “It’s taken five records to make one that sounds the way we do onstage,” says James Petralli, vocalist/guitarist for White Denim.

The album marks the first time White Denim has worked with outside producers. The band had found its time on the road with Wilco inspirational and turned to Jeff Tweedy, the GRAMMY®- winning group’s front man, as they prepared to record Corsicana Lemonade. Working at The Loft, Wilco’s Chicago headquarters /studio, White Denim recorded two tracks with Tweedy and his frequent production partner, Tom Schick (Rufus Wainwright, Ryan Adams), in March 2013. Upon returning to Austin, the band members built their own studio at a house on a cliff overlooking Lake Travis, where they recorded the remaining tracks with local music legend Jim Vollentine.

“We wheeled-in a bunch of crazy ’50s gear and played from noon until 2 a.m. every day until the album was done,” recalls Petralli. “We played live together, doing takes as a whole. Whatever sounded best was what we stuck with.”    ‘Corsicana Lemonade’ is the follow-up to White Denim’s D, which was awarded four stars by Rolling Stone and MOJO and named by both publications as one of the 50 best albums of 2011. “Expect whiplash of the most intriguing, enjoyable kind,” said SPIN while Pitchfork praised D as “White Denim’s best-sounding effort yet.”

Since its formation in 2005 and first string of EPs in 2007, White Denim has steadily expanded its sound. From the rootsy classicism of Last Day Of Summer (2010) and noisy sun-soaked sizzle of Fits (2009) to the soft-edged riffage of D (2011), the group’s commitment to fiery live performance, textured exploration and blissful interludes has never wavered. It peaks on ‘Corsicana Lemonade’.

Wildcat! Wildcat! Set To Release Debut EP September 10 Via Downtown Records & MapleMusic Recordings

Stream Their First Single ‘Mr. Quiche’ HERE

 Watch The Official Video For ‘Mr. Quiche’ HERE

 Critically acclaimed LA-based band Wildcat! Wildcat! are set to release their highly anticipated, self-titled debut EP September 10 on Downtown Records and MapleMusic Recordings. The band garnered critical praise for their previously released sold-out limited addition 7″ on the taste-making label Neon Gold Records, including early support from BBC Radio 1 in the U.K. TIME raves, “I love the staccato electronic rock, I love the frantic opening measures, I love the fleeting falsetto in the background,” while NYLON furthers,”Undoubtedly one of the best tracks we’ve heard all year…these guys certainly have more in store for 2013.” To celebrate the release, the band will embark on a North American tour starting in September.

The new EP was written and produced by the band in their home studios over the course of the last year and a half.  Of the songs Jesse Carmichael (vocals, drums) notes, “Some came quicker than others but all of them provided us the time to try out different processes of collaboration and understand how and why we make the kind of music that we make together.”

Wildcat! Wildcat! is Jesse Taylor (vocals, bass), Michael Wilson (vocals, keys) and Carmichael. The trio played together in various incarnations before officially forming Wildcat! Wildcat! in 2012. The band has toured extensively including SXSW, a sold out west coast headlining run and major U.S. support slots with Alt-J and Portugal. The Man.

J. Roddy Walston & The Business Announce Fall Tour And Reveal Cover Art

j roddy walston

Pre-Order Their Album ‘Essential Tremors’ HERE

Watch The Brand New “Heavy Bells” Live Teaser HERE

  The third album from J. Roddy Walston & The Business, ‘Essential Tremors‘ borrows its name from a nervous-system disorder that’s long plagued the band’s frontman. “It’s this condition where my hands shake, sometimes not at all, but sometimes pretty bad,” says singer/pianist/guitarist Walston. “I’ve referenced it throughout all our records in some way, but it made sense to be more open about it on this album, which is partly about owning and embracing your weirdness instead of letting it hold you captive because you don’t even want to talk about it.”

For J. Roddy Walston & The Business, who formed in 2002 in Walston’s hometown of Cleveland, Tennessee, embracing weirdness means a mumble-out-loud celebration of that great and terrible burden of being human. Forcing the oft-clashing worlds of art and rock-and-roll to make nice, the band (including guitarist/vocalist Billy Gordon, bassist/vocalist Logan Davis, and drummer Steve Colmus) deals in a scrappy yet sublime sound that honours both their Southern roots and punk spirit. On ‘Essential Tremors’ J. Roddy Walston & The Business builds off that formula with a mix of heavy hooks and elegant melodies revealing their affinity for artists as disparate as Led Zeppelin, pre-disco-era Bee Gees, The Replacements, Randy Newman, and the Southern soul outfits that once populated the Stax Records label.

Co-produced by Matt Wignall (Delta Spirit, Cold War Kids) and Grammy-winning producer/engineer Mark Neill (The Black Keys) at Neill’s own Soil of the South Studios (a Valdosta, Georgia-based facility where J. Roddy Walston & The Business were the first to ever record), the follow-up to 2010′s much-acclaimed self-titled sophomore album also finds the band crafting lyrics that ultimately serve as a secret language to the initiated listener.

“It seems like most bands write for either the animal side of people or for the side that’s more in tune with the spirit or even just the psyche, but we tend to just smash all those things together,” says Walston. “It’s like we’re writing religious songs for the animal side. We’ve got songs that feel like party songs but if you look at it closer, it’s something more cerebral. So for the people who want to dig in and connect all the weird crosswires, the song can turn into something else.” And because J. Roddy Walston & The Business is practiced in the art of subversion, he adds, “these are songs you can get away with listening to around ‘the straights.’ The danger is in what lies behind the codes and the prose, and how gently they unravel once you’ve digested them.”

j roddy

Endlessly shifting from snarling and stompy to warm and soulful-and often encompassing all of the above within the same note, ’Essential Tremors’ opens with “Heavy Bells,” a powerhouse lead single that starts out breezy then gives way to a blistering chorus that threatens to rip Walston’s sweetly ragged vocals right open. The album amps up that brutal energy on songs like “Hard Times” (an epic anthem built on a mercilessly driving bassline) and “Sweat Shock” (a track that comes off like dance-floor war cry for Native American metalheads), while “Marigold” keeps it blissfully catchy and “Black Light” offers a glammed-up bedroom boogie that could be the soundtrack to a metaphysical seduction scene.  Even when turning tender (such as on the heart-on-sleeve serenade “Boys Can Never Tell,” the harmony-soaked “Nobody Knows,” and the album-closing stunner “Midnight Cry”), Essential Tremors burns with a raw passion that’s nothing short of glorious.

Releasing their debut EP ‘Here Comes Trouble’ in 2002, J. Roddy Walston & The Business relocated to Baltimore in 2004 after Walston’s then-girlfriend (and now wife) began studying opera at the Peabody Conservatory of Music. Along with putting out their first full-length album (2007′s Hail Mega Boys), the band devoted the next few years to earning a reputation as an incendiary live act that devotees aptly liken to “AC/DC fronted by Jerry Lee Lewis.” Along with touring with the likes of The Black Keys, Lucero and the Lumineers, J. Roddy Walston & The Business have brought their joyfully chaotic performance to such festivals as Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, and Bonnaroo.

Melting all manner of stereotypes into an as-yet-unnamed breed of New American, each performance finds hipsters hugging Teamsters and sweating till it hurts, and art-school cynics and metalheads screaming out every lyric in some gorgeously desperate attempt to connect. There seems to be a competition between the band and the crowd as to who will give more each night. To attempt that connection for yourself, check out the band on their upcoming fall tour; all dates are listed below.

San Fermin Announce Fall Live Dates

LISTEN TO THE PHASEONE REMIX OF THEIR FIRST SINGLE ‘SONSICK’ HERE

WATCH THE OFFICIAL VIDEO FOR ‘SONSICK’ HERE

 Brooklyn’s San Fermin, led by songwriter and composer Ellis Ludwig-Leone, has announced a large string of live dates in support of their debut self-titled album – out September 17th on Downtown Records and MapleMusic Recordings.  Starting with a spot at the Hopscotch Music Festival on September 7th in Raleigh, NC and making their across the continent to Vancouver, BC, San Fermin will be  performing their beautiful take on chamber-pop all across North America.

Their sound, molded and influenced by Ludwig-Leone’s unique background in classical music, presents a unique pastiche of post-rock, chamber-pop, vocal harmony and classical orchestration into an amazing live show based around an eight-piece band of top-rate musicians.

In anticipation of these dates, Brooklyn producer Phaseone has remixed San Fermin’s first single “Sonsick”. The new remix is a complete makeover of the Pitchfork described “deliriously infectious summer jam,” delving into the white noise of the composition to create a hauntingly beautiful (and hip-hop nodding) rendition of the track.

“It just shook me and I loved it and I just flipped over it … A band I think you want to keep an eye on … I love them.” - NPR, ALL SONGS CONSIDERED (Bob Boilen)

After acting as main support on two ultra-successful 2013 tours – first with Cold War Kids and most recently with Baths - Los Angeles duo Houses are taking to the road yet again this time for a fall headline tour.  Starting September 5th in Atlanta and ending October 25th in Los Angeles, the 30-date tour will take Houses across the United States and Canada in support of their stunning sophomore album A Quiet Darkness, which was released on Downtown Records and MapleMusic Recordings earlier this year.  Select dates will include support from Detroit synth-pop outfit Jamaican Queens and Zion member AMP LIVE.

 Houses members Dexter Tortoriello and Megan Messina have stayed true to the concept of A Quiet Darkness – an album whose narrative tells the story of a husband and wife separated in the midst of a nuclear disaster and their attempt to reunite with one another along the Highway 10 in California. To help continue their interstate travels, K.I.D.S (Charles Cave from the UK band White Lies) has remixed the duo’s ”The Beauty Surrounds”, a high tempo, bass driven, rendition of their first single.

Typhoon Premiers New Single ‘Young Fathers’ Band Announces North American Headlining Tour New Album ‘White Lighter’ Out August 20th

 Typhoon is excited to premiere the first single “Young Fathers” from their anticipated new album “White Lighter.”

“White Lighter” – out August 20th – is the follow up to the band’s EP A New Kind Of House that caught the attention of countless music critics and listeners for its inspiring hybrid of literate lyrics and wide ranging pop music.

Typhoon will head out on a North America headlining tour beginning September 5th in their hometown of Portland, OR. This six-week tour will include performances at the Austin City Limits Music Festival, Pop Montreal and Music Fest NW, along with stops in New York, Los Angeles and Vancouver. Tour dates below.

What makes these songs so great is the sense of borrowed time and urgency. A series of events suffered from a bug bite - failed organs, life spared thanks to modern medicine and a kidney given to him by his father - Kyle Morton, the band’s lead singer and songwriter, channeled his emotions into songwriting to create this big-hearted sound that bursts with a raw emotion and energy. The end result is a remarkably powerful and beautiful collection of songs.

“When we started working on White Lighter, I had reason to believe that it would be the last thing I ever did,” says Kyle. “It is now six months since we finished. I’m still here and there’s still work to be done.”

Stereophonics Return To North America With Their Chart Topping UK Album ‘Graffiti On The Train’ Which Will Be Released August 20th



North American Tour Kicks Off This September

One of the most durable and consistently successful bands ever to come out of the U.K. band scene, Stereophonics return to North America August 20th with the release of their chart topping U.K. album ‘Graffiti on the Train‘; their eighth studio album, out on MapleMusic Recordings and their own Stylus Records.

Released earlier this year in the U.K., ‘Graffiti on the Train’ entered the U.K. charts at number 3 and has remained in the Top 20 ever since. Affirming that this is their best album in a decade, the album has quickly gone gold and is well on its way to platinum status.

Written by lead vocalist and guitarist Kelly Jones and produced by Kelly Jones and Jim Lowe, ‘Graffiti on the Train’ is the final piece in the puzzle for a newly refined and cinematic Stereophonics, a band that has London’s Sunday Times calling this album their “least conventional yet”, praising its “newfound lightness of touch” and confirming “The album contains Jones’s best work of his career.”

A storyteller first and foremost Kelly Jones unravels storylines and sketches characters with poetic finesse – inspired by the screenplay he has been working on of the same name, ‘Graffiti On The Train’ is a fascinating, filmic LP unlike anything the group have attempted in the past. Loosely telling the story of two friends who flee the country after a tragic accident, the record is both reflective and surprisingly fragile.

We find Jones at the helm of all the videos from this album, which he has both written and directed including the first North American single, ‘Indian Summer.’ Upon release in the U.K. earlier this year, ‘Indian Summer’marked the band’s 26th Top 40 hit on the U.K. charts.

Having spanned decades of success selling over 9 million career albums and currently sitting at the top of U.K. album charts, this return to the other side of the pond is a tour not to be missed. Their North American tour kicks off in Philadelphia on September 19 at the Theatre of Living Arts. See below for complete tour itinerary.As one of the best live bands imported from the U.K. in the last twenty years, North America will be treated to select tour dates and an Indian Summer to be remembered. At a recent U.K. show, John Earls of the Daily Star noted, “Girls sat on their boyfriends shoulders, Welsh flags were held aloft, beer was thrown everywhere and the singalongs kept coming.”

Cold War Kids Announce Fall Headline Tour Dates & Add Dates to Summer Tour

WATCH THEIR NEW VIDEO ‘LONER PHASE’ HERE!

ORDER THEIR ALBUM ‘DEAR MISS LONELYHEARTS’ VIA ITUNES HERE!   

On the heels of a successful spring tour, Cold War Kids have extended their headlining North American tour by adding summer dates kicking off today at Plush in St. Louis, MO.  Fall tickets will be available via www.coldwarkids.com. Pre-sale tickets will be available June 5th, with the public on-sale beginning June 7th. See below for itinerary.

Cold War Kids have also released a video to accompany “Loner Phase,” an infectious song from their fourth studio album, Dear Miss Lonelyhearts, released April 2nd on Downtown Records and MapleMusic Recordings. Consequence of Sound says, “Loner Phase, is chock-full of classic CWK.  While bobbing basslines
and snappy drums line the track up nicely with the band’s earlier work, there are distinct signs of the aforementioned growth.”

“Fits and starts of brilliance on the first three records, Cold War Kids have hit their stride and locked into a very intense groove for the fourth, ” says Esquire Magazine. NME adds, “(Dear Miss Lonelyhearts) has gone back to the sort of idiosyncratic weirdness that made us fall for them in the first place.”  Relix states, “There’s a natural flow to the songs on this disc … a complexly drawn collection. And that blues sensibility you always liked best about them is happily still there.”
