Mas Ysa today shares ‘Gun‘ – a new track from his highly anticipated debut album’ Seraph,’ out July 24th via MapleMusic Recordings and Downtown Records.  Mas Ysa, the creation of musician Thomas Arsenault, embraces cutting-edge electronic music, but owes plenty to his traditional song-writing skills.  It is the entirety of this spectrum that  is apparent on ‘Seraph.’ His new single ‘Gun’ features Nicole Miglis of Hundred Waters.  Of the track, Arsenault says “Gun’s a duet. I wanted the other side of the story told and not just mine. I’d written it originally with just the male perspective and it felt a bit unsatisfying, so I brought the subject into the song. That was cathartic.”

San Fermin Announce Tour Supporting Alt-J

Canadian Dates In BC and Alberta - Festival Stops At NXNE And Osheaga 

“…a bigger, bolder and, yes, even better album than San Fermin’s debut…a glorious second effort…” – CBC Music

 “Under the careful stewardship of mastermind Ellis Ludwig-Leone, Brooklyn’s San Fermin has become a ferocious, precise vessel…His predilection for marrying sublime pop melodies to bombastic arrangements laced with classical avant-garde flourishes has reached a new level of focus, and, resultantly, potency, on Jackrabbit.”Exclaim

 San Fermin have expanded their 2015 North American tour with dates supporting alt-J this July and fall. The 8-piece band, led by Ellis Ludwig-Leone, will perform songs off their sophomore album Jackrabbit (out now, Downtown Records / Fontana North), which debuted in the Top 10 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart and earned praise by NPR Music for its “grittier energy”. Rolling Stone called the band “masters of highbrow chamber pop” and praised “tag-team singers Charlene Kaye and Allen Tate [who] flaunt killer instruments.” Of San Fermin’s recent sold-out Music Hall of Williamsburg show, The Village Voice raved, “Behold the new Arcade Fire: They are San Fermin.”

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.

RHETT_MILLER_COVER_rgb

Pre-order “The Traveller” on iTunes HERE

Rhett Miller has been playing in touring bands (most notably, The Old 97′s) for the better part of 20 years. This fact alone certainly qualifies him as someone allowed to title his latest solo album titled ‘The Traveler,’ which will be released on May 12th via ATO Records and MapleMusic Recordings.

Although the album was written and performed by Miller he also had some help, most notably by the members of Black Prairie, a band based in Portland that plays everything from bluegrass to klezmer to country and shares members with The Decemberists. The band (Black Prairie) entered the studio with the singer (Rhett Miller) and briskly recorded the songs that make up this album (The Traveler). Additional guitar work was also added by Peter Buck and Scott McCaughey of REM.

It is with great enthusiasm that MapleMusic Recordings announces Mas Ysa‘s [pronounced MAAS ee-sa] first live appearances of 2015 – it will be an extensive tour that will find him supporting Young Fathers through April and in to May. In anticipation of these shows and the changing  season; Mas Ysa (otherwise known as the Montreal-born visionary pop auteur Thomas Arsenault) is eager to share a new track for the Spring: ‘Look Up.’

‘Look Up’ may seem familiar to those who spent time with last year’s critically acclaimed ‘Worth‘ EP: it’s chordal seeds were set in the short instrumental track ‘Yes‘.  In 2014, Mas Ysa took his rig on the road, touring the country with Delorean, EMA and Hundred Waters through appearances at a number of festivals both domestic and overseas. On the stages of SXSW, Primavera Sound, The Pitchfork Music Festival, Fun Fun Fun Fest, Hopscotch, NOS Primavera Sound and Splendor In The Grass, ‘Look Up’ remained a live staple and fan favorite.

The River and The Road Join The MapleMusic Recordings Family With New Album ‘Headlights’ Out May 12

the River and the Road Diner

Pre-order ‘Headlights’ HERE

MapleMusic Recordings is proud to announce its latest signing, the Vancouver based folk rockers The River and The Road, who will be releasing their sophomore album ‘Headlights‘ on May 12, 2015.  Produced and mixed by Jamey Koch (The Tragically Hip, Ron Sexsmith), the album was recorded in both Vancouver and Toronto.

Headlights‘ is at times a bold step away from the acoustic songwriting that initially drove them, a change that can be likened to the evolution of their live performances. What has become clear is that The River and The Road is a band that defies definition and is willing to take chances.  The album hums with a mosaic of harmonies and has a fluidity that is reminiscent of Crosby, Stills & Nash and Ryan Adams.  From the dazzling complexity of their ballad ‘Coulee (The Prairie Song),’ to the foot stompin’, head noddin’ ‘Child With A Gun’, to their infectious ‘Strange Disease‘ – this is one addictive and enduring record.
