Dreams of Cannibalism” comes from the band’s upcoming album White Lighter out August 20th on Roll Call Records and MapleMusic Recordings.

White Lighter is the follow up to the bands acclaimed EP A New Kind Of House that caught the attention of countless music critics and listeners for it’s inspiring hybrid of literate lyrics and wide ranging pop music.

Recorded by the band in the isolation of Pendarvis Farm in Happy Valley, Oregon, Typhoon freed themselves from outside distractions to arrange and record this album full of horns, strings and group vocal crescendos. Ultimately creating an impressive collection that will establish this 12-piece collective as an immensely creative force.

Already confirmed for this year’s Austin City Limits Music Festival, Pop Montreal and Music Fest NW, Typhoon will set out on a US headlining tour this fall. Tour to be announced shortly.

Typhoon spent most of 2011 on the road – sharing the stage with The Decemberists, The Shins & Explosions In The Sky and performing at festivals such as Lollapalooza, Osheaga and the Newport Folk Festival – winning over concertgoers with what KEXP calls an “awe inspiring” live show.

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.”

Caveman Announce New Album ‘CAVEMAN’ Out on July 9th

Tagged with , ,

   Play Toronto’s Mod Club With Rogue Wave On June 25th!

On their self-titled sophomore album, Caveman stretch their legs in a number of different, albeit cohesive, directions. Their highly anticipated return will come out exclusively on iTunes on June 25th and will be hitting all other physical and digital stores on July 9th via MapleMusic Recordings.

Caveman -a five-man vibe collective from NYC- released their first album in 2011. As first albums go, CoCo Beware was something akin to a moody statement of intent, a blueprint for a band quickly learning how to create horizon-wide rock songs that were equal parts intimate and expansive. Initially self-released and later snatched up by Fat Possum for re-release in early 2012, the record brims over with four-part harmonies, crystalline guitar lines, and tracks that see-sawed between echoey lullaby (“A Country’s King of Dreams”) to shoegaze-by-way-of classic-FM-radio sprawl (“Old Friend”). The album quickly elevated Caveman from local band to watch to a sizable touring draw and formidable live act, as evidenced by stints on the road with the likes of The War on DrugsWhite Rabbits and Built to Spill. Despite being the work of a brand new band, CoCo Beware displayed a kind of Zen-like ease. It was the sound a five

“We all went up to Jimmy’s grandmother’s place in New Hampshire,” says singer Matthew Iwanusa. “That’s where the new record kind of started. It was literally the attic of her barn, lit up by Christmas lights. We’d all sit in this one room together and one by one we’d all go into the bathroom and record ourselves making the most psycho noises possible. It actually felt kind of like a weird breakthrough. We were all confident and comfortable enough with each other to try out these experiments, which extended itself into the making of the new record…which is really just an evolution of this vibe that we’d been cultivating for long time.”

With that, the guys holed up in Brooklyn’s Rumpus Room to start recording in earnest with Nick Stumpf (who produced the band’s debut album) and Albert Di Fiore behind the controls. The album is a kind of sonic microcosm-a series of emotional yet tough mini-narratives operating within the same quixotic musical universe.
As a result, the guitars on Caveman are bigger and more expansive, the rhythm section is tighter and more adventurous, the keyboards more opaque and pronounced. Like a marriage between Tangerine Dream, late period Slowdive, and Lindsey Buckingham, tracks like their new single “In the City” and “Ankles” boast synth lines that sound simultaneously retro and futuristic, while “Pricey” and “Never Want to Know” overflow with guitar sounds that could have miraculously floated off an old Cure album. It should be noted that James Carbonetti, the band’s primary guitar player, also happens to be one of the most highly regarded guitar makers in New York City.

And while Caveman’s music could certainly operate on the level of dreamy soundscape and still be excellent, the depth of feeling in front man Matthew Iwanusa’s lyrics helps weave the songs deeply into your memory. When Iwanusa sings Where’s the time to waste on someone else’s life? on “Where’s the Time,” it’s hard not to read between the lines. Wonder and regret seem to fuel the record in almost equal measure.

Caveman – CAVEMAN tracklisting:
01 — Strange to Suffer
02 — In the City
03 — Shut You Down
04 — Where’s the Time
05 — Chances
06 — Over My Head
07 — Ankles
08 — Pricey
09 — I See You
10 — I Never Want to Know
11 — The Big Push

San Fermin Announces Debut Self-Titled Album out September 17th on Downtown Records & MapleMusic Recordings

SanFerminNew
LISTEN TO THE FIRST SINGLE “SONSICK” HERE!

“SONSICK” AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE ON ITUNES HERE

Brooklyn musician Ellis Ludwig-Leone, the songwriter and composer behind San Fermin, has announced his signing to Downtown Records and the subsequent release of his self-titled, debut album San Fermin on September 17. Ludwig-Leone, who studied music composition at Yale University, envisioned the album’s concept prior to writing the music or knowing who would perform it. Pulling inspiration from Hemingway’s The Sun Also Rises, he conceived the album as a dialogue between an earnest, unhappy man and a cynical, elusive woman. Upon Ludwig-Leone’s graduation he traveled to the Canadian Rocky Mountains where he wrote the album over the course of six weeks. “Writing for a group of unknown musicians gave the writing process a kind of operatic scope,” Ludwig-Leone says. On his return he enlisted the help of longtime friend and vocalist Allen Tate as well as female vocalists Holly Laessig and Jess Wolfe (Lucius) to give voices to the characters he developed.

A pastiche of post-rock, chamber-pop and contemporary classical composition, San Fermin is strongly influenced by Ludwig-Leone’s unique background in classical music, and the album fittingly features instrumentalists from the likes of Bon Iver, yMusic, and Asphalt Orchestra. A composer of instrumental music as well, Ludwig-Leone recently finished a ballet score for BalletCollective (comprised of New York City Ballet members), to be premiered by ACME at the Joyce Theater this summer, and is currently arranging a piece with Sonic Youth‘s Lee Ranaldo for the Solistenensemble Kaleidoskop. He is an assistant to the composer Nico Muhly.

“Sonsick” is a deliriously infectious summer jam.” -PITCHFORK

Martha Wainwright Announces A New Canadian Tour With A VIP Fan Experience

martha
Check out the VIP Fan Experience package for Martha Wainwright HERE!

Coming from a family of musical royalty (most notably Kate McGarrigle and brother Rufus Wainwright) Martha has returned to Canada to support her critically acclaimed record ‘Come Home To Mama’ which was released in October of last year.  The album was recorded predominately at Sean Lennon’s New York City home and produced by Yuka C. Honda (Cibo Matto, Yoko Ono, Sean Lennon).  The record has the passionate angst of her previous efforts, as well as the crafty pop of  ‘I Know Your Married But I’ve Got Feelings Too.’

This past February Martha also released ‘Trauma: Chansons de la Serie Tele #04.’ The record was recorded entirely in French and is the emotional backdrop for the hit Radio-Canada television show, Trauma. Filmed in Quebec and created by Fabienne Larouche, Trauma transports the viewers into the lives of those who work in the Trauma Hospital Saint-Arsene.  Fans can expect to hear songs from both releases during this tour.

This new tour has Martha partaking in Fan Experience.  Fan Experience is a VIP ticket package and ticket pre-sale provider that works with a wide range of artists to offer fans a premium ticket combined with unique encounters with their favourite musicians.  The Martha “experience” includes one reserved ticket in the first 5 rows, or one general admission ticket with VIP early entry, a post show meet-and-greet with a  photo-op, a Trauma digital download, and an exclusive 7-inch vinyl and tour laminate.  More dates and packages will be announced over the coming weeks.

Portland, Oregon’s Typhoon – one of the most talked about new bands – is proud to announce the August 20th release of their new album ‘White Lighter‘ on MapleMusic Recordings and Roll Call Records.

‘White Lighter’ is the follow up to the bands acclaimed EP ‘A New Kind Of House’ that caught the attention of countless music critics and listeners for what NPR’s Bob Boilen calls “absolutely stunning” and “so beautiful, it make’s me want to follow every single thing Typhoon does.”

Recorded at Pendarvis Farm in Happy Valley, Oregon, Typhoon isolated themselves from outside distractions to arrange and record this collection of songs with an impressive emphasis on storytelling and melody.

“On the farm, we were living inside the record” says songwriter Morton. “I had one place in the woods where I would write and rewrite one song, and a different place for working another. The whole thing was laid out spatially over so many acres. I built a small fort in the wood barn where I kept my books and guitar.  Slept a couple feet away from the recording desk.  When it was cold, we built wood fires, when it was warm we went swimming down the road.  Friends came and went, sometimes recording with us.”

Produced by the band along with their in-house engineer Paul Laxer, Typhoon created a dynamic recording – full of horns, strings and group vocal crescendos – that will establish the band as an immensely creative force.

An inspiring hybrid of literate lyrics and wide ranging pop music – new songs such as first single “Young Fathers,” “Possible Deaths,” “Prosthetic Love” and “Hunger And Thirst” – take listeners on a journey through the experience of having it all, fighting to keep the dream and accepting your fate.

“There are several layers to this new record” says Morton. ”It’s definitely the most autobiographical record I’ve ever done. I’m also trying to reconstitute disparate experiences into something like a meaningful sequence in the pale light of truth.”

Along with Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, NPR, Alternative Press and more, Paste Magazine raves “Music critics throw around adjectives like ‘orchestral’ and ‘expansive’ all the time these days. But here’s a band that actually deserves such labels. Portland’s Typhoon is an indie rock geek’s dream: a dynamic 12-piece with a seemingly unending reservoir of energy, emotive vocals, arpeggiated guitars, horns, multiple drum kits and strings … Ladies and gentlemen, meet your new critical darlings.”

Typhoon spent most of 2011 on the road – sharing the stage with The Decemberists, The Shins & Explosions In The Sky and performing at festivals such as Lollapalooza, Osheaga and the Newport Folk Festival – winning over concertgoers with what KEXP calls an “awe inspiring” live show.

Already confirmed for this year’s Austin City Limits Music Festival, Typhoon will set out on a US headlining tour this fall. Stay tuned for more news!
