‘Education, Education, Education & War’ LP Out April 1st

“Some songs are made to fill summer stadiums as the last light falls over the crowd. Kaiser Chief’s new single “Coming Home” is one of them… reminiscent of David Byrne’s best work” - GQ

“Anthemic and immediately catchy.” - A.V. Club

“There’s an extraordinary moment when a third unfamiliar tune, ‘Coming Home,’ a U2/Kings of Leon-ish stadium-sized ballad, prompts an unexpected singalong.” - The Guardian

(Feb. 20, 2014) Today, Kaiser Chiefs unveil the music video for ‘Coming Home’ on VEVO. The song is their first single from their upcoming album, and was revealed on A.V.

Chet Faker ‘Talk Is Cheap’ Video Premieres on Noisey – Full-Length Debut ‘Built On Glass’ Due April 15;

chet faker 2

Chet Faker is set to release his debut album ’Built on Glass’ April 15th via MapleMusic Recordings and Downtown. Two years in the making it brings together all his influences from house to R&B and fuses it together with his smokey vocals. ‘Built on Glass’ will surely further cement Chet Faker as one of the most unique artists of 2014.

In 2011, Nicholas Murphy recorded a cover of ‘No Diggity’ late one night just for his friends. Shared by a handful of people, the song spread like wildfire until reaching #1 on the indie blog charts Hype Machine, and so the Chet Faker identity was born — a nod to Chet Baker’s singing style but incorporating influences from a youth spent producing house and disco.

Upcoming Dates:
May 19 — Toronto ON — The Hoxton

Alabama’s legendary roots rockers Drive-By Truckers return on March 4 with ‘English Oceans,’ their 10th studio album, and first since 2011′s ‘Go-Go Boots.’

The record’s 13 tracks show an almost equal split of writing credits between co-front men Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley, with the first song to be shared, ‘Made Up English Oceans,’ composed by the latter.

The band recently filmed an acoustic performance of ‘Made Up English Oceans’ at the currently-under-renovation Lyric Theater in Birmingham, Alabama. “As it is, it’s like a time capsule offering an example of the beauty of a bygone era, and the ugliness of the segregated society it was part of,” Cooley told Speakeasy. “I thought it made a perfect setting for a song about how using beliefs, fears and prejudices to acquire power still works as well as ever.”

New Releases – Mas Ysa ‘Worth’ EP & Duo De Twang ‘Four Foot Shack’

Montreal-born producer Thomas Arsenault makes his MapleMusic Recordings debut as Mas Ysa with his ‘Worth’ EP. The album’s first single ‘Why’ received Best New Track from Pitchfork ahead of the hockey-themed & self-directed video featuring his brother Nicholas Arsenault. Mas Ysa (pronounced MAAS ee-sa) will head out on a West Coast tour with Lawrence Rothman in February and comes to Toronto for NXNE in June.

Everyone’s favourite story-teller Les Claypool has paired with his old buddy Bryan Kehoe as Duo De Twang to release their debut record ‘Four Foot Shack’. Featuring covers ranging from the best of the Primus catalogue (‘Jerry Was A Racecar Driver’ & ‘Winona’s Big Brown Beaver’) to Bee Gees ‘Stayin’ Alive’ and Alice In Chains ‘Man in The Box’ all recorded in the signature foot-stomping Americana style. “It was very live,” admits Les. “In fact, it was a little difficult, with all the bleed of the stomping and the bass and the vocals. Every now and again you can hear the studio refrigerator come on or the dog barking at something outside in the background. Once it was there, you had to kind of leave it.” Duo De Twang tour the U.S. in March along with a stop at the SXSW festival that month.
