New Releases: Marcus Marr & Chet Faker ‘Work EP’, and Chet Faker ‘Built On Glass’ Limited Edition Pink Vinyl

Over the past few years, a musical admiration between Chet Faker and Marcus Marr has grown, which culminated in a four-day sojourn in Marr’s South London studio earlier this year. The recording session lasted less than a week and the two discovered that Marr’s powerful, punchy dance production perfectly balanced Faker’s soulful vocals. The result is the 4-track EP ‘Work,’ out now via Faker’s imprint, Detail Records and comes to MMR through Downtown Records/Fontana North. Chet Faker also re-releases his critically-acclaimed full-length debut Built On Glass on limited edition Pink Vinyl in support of Ten Bands One Cause.

New Releases: YACHT ‘I Thought The Future Would Be Cooler’

“Once we catch up to yesterday’s future, it’s no longer what we imagined. It’s just the present all over again. And so on. We’ve made an album about that. It contains some speculations about the future that are big and distant as science fiction stories. But it’s also about looking carefully at the world around us and trying to understand what we’ve done with the imaginations of those who came before us. Would they believe it?” YACHT bring our cultural progress into question on their groundbreaking new record ‘I Thought The Future Would Be Cooler.’

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

New Releases – Tuesday, September 3, 2013

Stereophonics make their MMR debut with the band’s 8th studio record “Graffiti On The Train”. The newly refined and cinematic Stereophonics features strings arranged by famed James Bond composer David Arnold and is produced by Jim Lowe. Catch them during their fall tour when they hit Toronto’s Danforth Music Hall September 25th. Will Sheff shares his autobiography on Okkervil River’s latest “The Silver Gymnasium”. The John Agnello-produced 11 songs take place in the small town of Meriden, New Hampshire in 1986 which Sheff has detailed in the interactive map made by NPR. Brooklyn’s post-punk newcomers Butter The Children revisit the ghosts of classic punk on “True Crime”. The EP is the stuff the best punk is made of: a sugary dose of loud guitars, muscular bass, tsunami drums and morose lyrics about dejected wanderers. Chet Faker’s hard to come by 2012 debut EP “Thinking In Textures” has been reissued on vinyl ahead of his upcoming album later this year.
