King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard Release ‘Paper Mâché Dream Balloon’

 King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard is one of the most difficult bands to pin down. The Australian-based garage rock septet follows their collective muse wherever it chooses to lead them and for their seventh record they followed it to an all-acoustic opus titled ‘Paper Mâché Dream Balloon,’ released November 13, 2015 via ATO Records and MapleMusic Recordings.

 While embracing the limitations of their choice of only acoustic sounds, KGATLW were able to get a little experimental as well. To fill it out, they borrowed a batch of instruments that they had never played before-clarinet, double bass, and cello, among them-and eked sounds and melodies out of them. That only helps to add to joyous jumble that is ‘Paper Mâché Dream Balloon.’ The result is a lovely, lilting pop masterpiece that still evokes the same intoxicating exuberance as KGATLW’s most recent work, but with a more pastoral, communal feel to it.

 ”Some of the most charming garage rock of the past five years” – KCRW

A pastoral psych-pop breeze laden with flutes and spiraling harmonies … just press play and let it win you over.” – Stereogum

 ”While Paper Mache’s rootsier sound, lush orchestration and Their Satanic Majesties Request twist on psychedelia will likely net the group a wider audience, they are already thinking of ways to appease fans of their extended jam sessions and punishing grooves.” – Relix

The Wainwright Sisters (Martha Wainwright & Lucy Wainwright Roche) Announce Debut Album ‘Songs In The Dark’ Out November 13

Wainwright Sisters
Three Showcase Performances Already Announced 

The Wainwright Sisters will be releasing their anticipated debut album ‘Songs In The Dark‘ on November 13 via MapleMusic Recordings.

Although they’re sisters, Martha Wainwright and Lucy Wainwright Roche didn’t grow up together. Aside from genetics, their true bond was a musical one, both growing up in families steeped in songwriting. Both their mothers would sing them lullabies  (Kate McGarrigle to Martha and Suzzy Roche to Lucy) – now to honour that, 30 years later, Martha and Lucy are singing many of these same songs,  some penned by their mothers and father (Loudon Wainwright III) on ‘Songs In The Dark.’ Continue reading…

Sun Club Announce Debut LP ‘The Dongo Durango’ Out October 30

 Sun Club

Listen To ‘Tropicoller Lease’ Via Spotify and Rdio

Sun Club‘s debut LP titled ‘The Dongo Durango‘ joyously deconstructs the traditional pop song and rebuilds it with off-kilter time signatures, gleefully unhinged vocals, and sunny hooks that sink deep into your already fevered brain. The record will be out October 30 via ATO Records and MapleMusic Recordings.

The members of Sun Club became a band as childhood friends over ten years ago and with the release of a well-received 7″ and EP have toured endlessly ever since, moving from basement gigs to bars to opening up shows for the likes of AlvvaysFIDLAR, and Fat White Family.

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard Announce New Album ‘Paper Mâché Dream Balloon’ Out November 13


Listen To Title Track ‘Paper Mâché Dream Balloon’ Via Stereogum HERE

On November 13, 2015 King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard will release ‘Paper Mâché Dream Balloon‘ via ATO Records and MapleMusic Recordings.

Starting out in 2010 as a solid garage rock group, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard followed their collective muse wherever it chose to lead them. For their latest opus, ‘Paper Mâché Dream Balloon,’ they initially thought it was going to be filled with the darker, heavier material that the band has been playing live of late. But front man Stu Mackenzie soon decided that it was time to put aside the longer, more conceptual pieces and go in a completely new direction.

Lucero Announce New Album ‘All A Man Should Do’ Set For A September 18 Release


On September 18, Lucero will release their new record ‘All A Man Should Do‘ via ATO Records and MapleMusic Recordings.  Following the release of 2012′s ‘Women and Work,’ Lucero’s new album contains some of the most resonant lyrics Ben Nichols has ever written. They read like chapters from his life: the duality of relationships, getting older, finding where you want to be in this world and more.

Working with producer Ted Hutt (Old Crow Medicine Show, Flogging Molly) for a third time at Memphis‘s Ardent Studios, the band felt comfortable enough to take some chances with a palette of new tones that sound understated yet powerful, bringing life to the stories behind the lyrics without overshadowing them.  And for the first time they put a cover song on a record, with a full band version of Big Star‘s ‘I Fell in Love with a Girl.’  The track features Jody Stephens from Big Star singing back-up vocals, making it that much more special.

Purchase ‘Margarita’ Via iTunes HERE

Mas Ysa, the creation of musician Thomas Arsenault, will be releasing his long awaited full-length debut, ‘Seraph’ on July 24 via MapleMusic Recordings..

Creating ‘Seraph’ took the better part of a year – it was crafted in Arsenault’s home studio, received additional production help from Steve Rivette (Liars, Black Dice) and was mixed by Grammy-nominated Damian Taylor (Bjork, Arcade Fire).  ’Seraph’ isn’t electronic music only for the club or dance floor, it’s electronic music for the heart. “This is personal,” Arsenault says. And while Mas Ysa displays Arsenault’s unabashed love of electronic music, and ‘Seraph’ puts forward a collection of songs that have made their creator a hit on dance floors across the world, what Arsenault says is important isn’t just the beats. “To me,” he says, “the truth just sounds different.”

New Release: Alabama Shakes ‘Sound & Color’ & San Fermin ‘Jackrabbit’

Sound & Color – the follow-up to Alabama Shakes‘ Gold-certified debut album, Boys & Girlsdemonstrates the tremendous strides made by the band. From the gently swaying, chiming title song to the garage-rock freak-out on “The Greatest” to the psychedelic space jam “Gemini,” Alabama Shakes build on the soulful blues-rock base and map a surprising, innovative new direction. See the Shakes live when they come up to Canada headlining Toronto’s Field Trip festival and hit the west coast for Squamish Valley Music Festival. San Fermin bandleader Ellis Ludwig-Leone wrote Jackrabbit by himself from start to finish, only to find that after a year testing the songs on the road the album wasn’t nearly finished. Ellis explains, “I went from being this isolated composer guy, out in the woods, to sitting in the back of a van with seven other members playing shows in rock clubs every night. When I got back, I revisited it all, ripped these holes in the middle of all the existing songs and added some new songs. I rethought everything I had been writing.” Watch the full band performing “Emily” and the “title track” live via their YouTube.
