Austin psych rock outfit The Bright Light Social Hour has premiered their new album ‘Space Is Still the Place‘ in full on Yahoo! Music. To accompany the stream, the band has designed a long animated video to illustrate the 10-track album, out on March 10th via MapleMusic Recordings and Frenchkiss Records.

The band will celebrate the album release on March 5th and 6th with shows at Mercury Lounge in New York. Their full Spring tour kicks off March 31 in New Orleans and will make stops in Atlanta, Tampa, Toronto, Chicago, Montreal and more.

‘Space Is Still the Place’ encompasses the idea of a “Future South,” which was developed by the band after touring across the country, heavily in the South, over the last few years.

Praise for ‘Space Is Still The Place’:

No matter how much research you put into figuring out who will be the hottest new artists of each year, another act comes into your vision with an output that absolutely blows you away.” - The Huffington Post

“‘Slipstream’, is a lush, space-western odyssey. Rolling in with a plodding bass line and restrained drumming, the track builds slowly before a hypnotic guitar riff oozes into the mix.’” - Consequence of Sound

This band brings a live rawness that masterfully bleeds into their records. It’s an unmatched je ne sais quoi that makes their sound relatable to the listener and devoid of condescension.- Life + Times

The once psych-rock track [Infinite Cities (Francis Preve Remix)] has a whole new sound that may surprise you, as it has taken on a house beat to carry you straight onto the dance floor.- Earmilk

Pre-Order ‘Sound & Color’ Via iTunes HERE

Sound & Color – the follow-up to Alabama Shakes‘ Gold-certified debut album, Boys & Girls, which earned the group three GRAMMY® nominations, including a nod for Best New Artist – will be released on April 21 by ATO Records and MapleMusic Recordings.

Sound & Color demonstrates the tremendous strides made by Alabama Shakes since the release of 2012′s Boys & Girls. 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.

“We took our time to write this record, and I’m really glad we did,” says lead singer/guitarist Brittany Howard. “We were able to sit down and think about what’s exciting to us. This record is full of genre-bending songs.”

Sound & Color was recorded at Nashville’s Sound Emporium studio. The band co-produced the album with Blake Mills - a young guitar wizard who has helmed sessions by Sara Watkins and Sky Ferreira, and played alongside everyone from Norah Jones and The Dixie Chicks to Lana Del Ray and Kid Rock.

Kaiser Chiefs Announce New North American Tour Dates

After more than ten years, four albums, platinum record sales, a volley of top ten singles and three Brit Awards, it would have been simple for Kaiser Chiefs to sit back and coast a while, to enjoy the warm glow of being one of Britain’s most cherished bands.

But in late 2012 there came a change: the departure of founding member and drummer Nick Hodgson, and thus the album Education, Education, Education & War began out of frustration. But in the days that followed, the sense of neutered creativity gave way to something thrilling and unleashed. By the end of that week, Rix recalls, they had “Nineteen or 20 ideas for songs.” And more importantly, Wilson says, “We had the spark that gave us hope.”

Austin psychedelic rock outfit The Bright Light Social Hour announces the release of their sophomore album, Space Is Still the Place on March 10, 2015 via MapleMusic Recordings and Frenchkiss Records. The 10-track collection was written, performed, produced and engineered by the band at their home studio in Austin, TX, and mixed by Chris Coady (Beach House, TV On The Radio, Future Islands).

The Bright Light Social Hour convened while Curtis Roush and Jack O’Brien attended graduated school together at the University of Texas in Austin. Following graduation, they released their first self-titled LP in 2010. In the months and years that followed, their songs won over their hometown, and they scored an unprecedented six awards at the SXSW 2011 Austin Music Awards.

Space is Still the Place encompasses the idea of a “Future South,” which was developed by the band after touring across the country, heavily in the South, over the last few years. While on the road, the band usually stayed with people in various cities instead of hotels and gained a new perspective on the struggle young Americans faced after experiencing it first-hand.

Vacationer Canadian Tour Dates Set For November

vacationerbio2

Vacationer, the collaborative effort from Philadelphia-based vocalist/producer Kenny Vasoli and his production partners Grant Wheeler and Matthew Young (Body Language), today premiered the video for ‘Go Anywhere’ at Paste.com.

‘Go Anywhere’ is the second single from Vacationer’s acclaimed sophomore album ‘Relief,’ released earlier this year on Downtown Records/Fontana North. The video was shot in Glenmoore, PA by director/producer Matt Albasi, who wanted to capture Vacationer’s dreamy, escapist vibes. The idea was simple: put the band in a hot air balloon and film it. It was a perfect fit.

Vacationer is currently on a North American tour, which makes stops in Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Winnipeg and Toronto in November. See full dates below for details.

Primus Return Oct. 21 With ‘Primus & The Chocolate Factory’

Pre-Order Album Via Primus’ Online Store Or iTunes

The definitive Primus line-up - Les Claypool, guitarist Larry LaLonde, and drummer Tim Alexander - is back together and set to release their first full-length studio set in nearly 20 years, ‘Primus & the Chocolate Factory,’ due out on ATO Records / MapleMusic Recordings on October 21.

“The idea was to combine the Frog Brigade and Primus, and do this record,’ says Claypool. I think like a good portion of the planet, we were all pretty put off by the remake of the ‘Willy Wonka’ movie – the Tim Burton version. I really wanted to pay homage to a film [1971's 'Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory,' starring Gene Wilder] that was very important to me as a kid and very influential to me musically. So that’s what we did. And as opposed to just going in and recording the songs and playing them the way they are in the film, we twisted them up a bit…twisted them up a lot.” Listen to classic track ‘Pure Imagination’ re-imagined, which Rolling Stone premiered in July

It felt so good, in fact, Claypool decided to take Primus into the studio to prepare the soundtrack for an album release. Claypool admits he’s always, “in some way, wanted to be Willy Wonka,” and, also, that he’s always wanted to work a cover of ‘The Candy Man’ – a memorable number from the film’s soundtrack — into Primus sets. “Hell, I’ve been doing the line from the boat ride on stage since the ’80′s,” then Les sings, “There’s no earthly way of knowing, which direction we are going…”
