Album Stream: Goldfish – Late Night People

“Their unique style of house is apparent with a dance-driven approach making use of bouncing, deep basslines, jazzy and bright melodies with uplifting vocals while sax lines are thrown in perfectly.” – This Song Is Sick

Since locking themselves in their bedroom studio and emerging with debut album Caught In The Loop in 2006, GoldFish have gone from one of dance music’s best-kept secrets to luminaries both as producers and on the live front. Their can-do attitude and unique musical vision led them to countless sold-out performances and festival appearances, a top 10 in the iTunes Dance chart in the United States, an MTV Africa award, a four-year residency at Pacha Ibiza and a list of support that runs from Robin Schulz and Klingande to Thomas Jack and Sam Feldt. A landmark in itself, their fifth album Late Night People is bound to make the duo stand out further both in and beyond the world of dance music.

Following MTV Africa Award-winning album Three Second Memory, GoldFish is ecstatic in releasing their latest EP Late Night People, in addition to an International fall tour, sharing critically appraised live performances of the smashing new album. The uplifting twelve-track album radiates a sense of coming home, of discovering a piece of the world that has yet remained unclaimed and untainted. Between its funky and sexy title track, the upbeat “If I Could Find” and the ever-vibrant “Rising Sun” (with Pontifex and Grammy Winner, Gustavo Bertino), the album harbors Thirteen records that are as diverse as they are alike, coexisting peacefully.

MISSIO – 3 part docu-series: Skeletons

RCA recording artists MISSIO has announced the long-awaited premiere of a powerful new visual accompanying their latest single, “Bottom Of The Deep Blue Sea.” Directed by Evan Spencer Brace (Phantagram, Tiësto), the clip marks the latest visual accompanying tracks featured on MISSIO’s acclaimed full-length debut, LONER, available now at all digital music retailers and streaming services.

In addition, we will see the arrival of Skeletons, an exclusive new docu-series chronicling MISSIO’s remarkable story thus far. The first installment of the three-part film – directed by longtime MISSIO collaborator Jeff Ray (Sigur Rós) – premieres today at MISSIO’s official YouTube channel.

Recently named by Rolling Stone as one of “10 New Artists You Need To Know,” MISSIO has spent much of 2017 celebrating LONER with a wide-ranging North American tour, including U.S. headline dates and a number of widely heralded festival appearances. The epic trek continues into December with Nothing But Thieves and Blue October, with highlights including Austin, TX’s ACL Music Festival (October 6th and 14th), and Key Biscayne, FL’s OFF Weekend Music & Arts Festival (December 9th). For complete details and ticket information, please visit missiomusic.com/tour.

DECEMBER
9 – Key Biscayne, FL – OFF Weekend Music & Arts Festival

LONER has proven one of the year’s most significant debuts, highlighted of course by MISSIO’s breakthrough single, “Middle Fingers,” available now at all DSPs and streaming services. Released at the top of 2017, “Middle Fingers” quickly blew up at SiriusXM’s Alt Nation where it ascended to #1 in the influential “Alt-18 Countdown” before ultimately reaching the top 10 on Billboard‘s “Alternative Songs” chart as well as the top 20 across Billboard‘s “Mainstream Rock Songs,” “Hot Rock Songs,” and “Rock Airplay” charts. “Middle Fingers” is joined an equally popular companion video, now boasting nearly 5 million individual views via YouTube alone.

 

LONER – which also features such dynamic tracks as “Everybody Gets High” and ” KDV (Ft. SHUG),” – has drawn critical acclaim to match its popular success. “Loaded with bruising bass, icy synths and dark imagery,” raved Rolling Stone, “LONER is an exploration of (vocalist-producer Matthew) Brue’s winding road to sobriety.” “LONER implies a sense of woke with every song,” declared Earbuddy. “Through the power of music, good will prevail.”

MISSIO was founded in 2014 as a new sonic outlet for Colorado-born musician Matthew Brue and Houston, TX native David Butler, the two musicians teaming up to create something unlike anything either had done before. The duo’s widescreen amalgam of inventive production technique, lyrical wit, and endlessly insistent pop hooks instantly proved a sensation with “I Don’t Even Care About You” – featured on 2015’s debut   – rising to #7 on Spotify’s “Viral 50-Global” chart after first appearing on the automated “Fresh Finds” playlist.

The MISSIO EP was followed by “Can I Exist,” featured in a truly extraordinary companion video that earned such prizes as “Best Video” at 2016’s Austin Music Video Festival and the “Audience Award” at 2016’s New Orleans Film Festival. MISSIO’s remarkably cinematic sonic approach also earned them placement on a variety of soundtracks, including MTV’s Scream and Finding Carter, Oxygen’s Bad Girls Club, and Victoria’s Secret’s short film (and biggest lingerie shoot in history), Victoria’s Secret Holiday 2016: A Very Private Affair.

More than simply a studio project from the very start, MISSIO made a number of live appearances following their inception, including a much-discussed debut at 2015’s South By Southwest (SXSW). The duo followed up with a series of national treks, among them K. Flay’s sold-out “Crush Me Tour.”

Newest Love: Motherfolk

Cincinnati’s alt-folk favorites Motherfolk have just announced that they will be re-releasing their sophomore album Fold, clocking in with four new tracks, unreleased videos, and behind-the-scenes photos. Describing their sound as “indie rock with a twinge of modern folk”, Fold ranges from introspective jaunts to anthemic rock’n’roll. With tireless touring and energetic live shows that draw in the audience, Motherfolk has established themselves as one of the Midwest’s most exciting upcoming acts. Today, the band is also debuting the visuals for “Ryder Robinson”. The deluxe edition of Fold will be available October 13, right before a string of tour dates with Sherwood (info below).

Preorder Fold (Deluxe Edition) via Pledge Music

In a contemporary independent music scene inundated with up and coming bands, it takes a unique outfit to break through that noise. A truly exceptional group must exhibit authenticity, raw talent, and electrifying chemistry. This, of course, means there are very few of them. Motherfolk, formed in 2013, is certainly one of those most unique and dynamic acts.

Motherfolk began as a collaborative effort between Nathan Dickerson and Bobby Paver, two college friends with a penchant for writing songs with one another. In the first year of the project, the two songwriters made frequent trips to Nashville to record their first endeavor. In 2014, their eponymous debut album showcased the duo’s musical prowess through a genre-bending collection of elegantly crafted songs.

Since then, Joel Call, Ethan Wescott, Karlie Dickerson, and Clayton Allender have joined Motherfolk’s ranks, and the band has made a name for themselves touring all across the nation. The outfit’s high-energy live performances have won over audiences from coast to coast, and their infectious musical persona has become one of the most exciting rising success stories in the indie scene.

In 2016, Motherfolk released their highly anticipated sophomore effort, Fold. Clocking in with eleven compelling tracks, the album further defines the band as an act that effortlessly melds a slew of influences together to manifest their sound into a splendidly cohesive, original pursuit. From surreal, introspective jaunts to foot-stomping, anthemic rock and roll, Fold stands tall as one of the most exciting records of 2016.

Building on the strength of the original release, Motherfolk will release a deluxe edition of Fold this October. With five unreleased tracks, three new music videos, and exclusive behind-the-scenes photos, fans can get a satisfying deeper look into the compelling story of Fold. The band will continue their extensive touring throughout the remainder of 2017, building momentum for what’s to come, and they’re inviting all of their fans, old and new, along for the ride.

Tracklist:

  1. Fold I
  2. Stone Against Stone
  3. Control
  4. Interlude
  5. Wreck of a Man
  6. Something Good
  7. Fold II
  8. Give My Heart Away
  9. Ryder Robinson
  10. The Only Fire
  11. Fold III

Said The Whale – “Nothing Makes Me Happy”

“Though fewer in number, the pulse between the remaining members has grown louder and more confident than ever before.” – NYLON 

“Bursts of electronic bass compliment bright synths and bittersweet vocals” – Consequence of Sound 

“An explosive synth-backed outpouring” – Noisey

On the heels of their acclaimed LP As Long As Your Eyes Are Wide and new single “Nothing Makes Me Happy”, Vancouver trio Said The Whale have announced a string of US tour dates. The chart-topping, JUNO Award-winning outfit will be taking their dynamic live show down the west coast in support of their fifth studio album – released earlier this year. Previously operating as a five-piece, the current trio has created their most collaborative, focused record to date. Earlier releases highlighted the contrast between the two founders’ eclectic rock influences and salt-of-the-earth folksiness. Here their styles become one, which makes for their most captivating live performances yet.

A decade since the band’s formation, Said The Whale have now taken the project back to its freeform roots while simultaneously venturing forward into uncharted art-pop territory. Despite the new album’s many adventurous sonic forays, it remains true to the spirit of their classic work. At its core, As Long As Your Eyes Are Wide is a singer-songwriter record, guided by introspective lyrics and alchemical group harmonies from Ben, Tyler, and Jaycelyn.
After so much change and uncertainty in recent years, Said The Whale has emerged as a unified force. They’ve evolved, but the DNA is the same, and the group’s musical partnership is more fruitful than ever.

Tour Dates:

October 12 – Seattle, WA at Tractor Tavern

October 16 – San Francisco, CA at Cafe du Nord

October 17 – Los Angeles, CA at Bootleg Theatre

October 18 – San Diego, CA at Space

October 22 – Eugene, OR at WOW Hall

October 23 – Portland, OR at Lola’s Room

Groove With This Supermoon

“Ikebe Shakedown re–creates the kind of vibrant vintage funk that sends crate–digging DJs into spasms of joy…” – TimeOut New York

“Ikebe Shakedown has a sound that is undeniably all their own” – KEXP, Seattle

Over the past ten years, Ikebe Shakedown has refined a sound that defies genre. Their tracks bring the primal elements of ’70s soul, raw funk, and cinematic Western soundtracks together with a relentless groove and soaring melodies. Each release has successively pushed their explosive instrumental style further, wowing audiences in the U.S. and around the world. Now, after considerable time building their own analog studio, Hive Mind Recording, hitting the road with some of the most revered acts in the Brooklyn soul scene, and soaking in the wisdom that comes from day-in, day-out living in NYC, Ikebe is back with their third LP, The Way Home, (Colemine Records), an album that takes these sensibilities to new heights.

While the band has always been known for danceable grooves, The Way Home delves deeper into what it means to move people. As they put it, “We live in a city with a relentless pace. Sometimes, that demands music that gets you up and shaking, but it’s just as much about getting ourselves up every day to take on this massive life in just a few square miles.” It’s that joyful struggle that keeps the record from being just another love letter to New York. Says the band, “We set out to tell NYC that our feelings are a little more, well, complicated.”

Perhaps that’s why each song tells its own story, from the get-off-your-ass snare hits of “Penny the Snitch” to “She’s Knocking,” with its quiet-morning start that transitions to a glorious call to arms. Or “Blue Giant,” which boxes like Ali, floating until it stings you with full-band jabs. And though there may be more subdued moments, no song ever goes completely still – because NYC never stops. As the band says, “We wanted some tracks to be for those predawn hours, when someone’s still out there, keeping the city humming.”

The album’s first 45, “Supermoon” b/w “The Ally,” is a powerful assertion of the band’s place amidst the top of the instrumental scene. With “Supermoon,” premiering on The Big Takeover, the band aimed to make “A tune that expresses all the energy and excitement we feel moving through the city. From the opening wash of reverb to the last pummeling drum hits, we gave it an air of mystery, since we live somewhere where anything’s possible at any time, day or night.” For “The Ally” on the B-Side, the band sees it as the perfect complement to “Supermoon” — “We want to take the listeners on a journey from a barebones opening to an ending that rouses them from the stupor we sometimes find ourselves in, so they feel like they can take on the world.”

If you think you know Ikebe Shakedown, check out The Way Home and prepare to be awakened. And if you’ve never listened, welcome to a sound that’s richly familiar but unlike anything you’ve heard before.

Tour Dates
Oct. 19th in Philadelphia, PA at World Cafe Live
Oct. 21st in Brooklyn, NY at Union Pool
Oct. 26th in  Kingston, NY at BSP Hall

The Way Home is out on October 20th, 2017

Black Kids New Album Rookie Out Now

Black Kids are finally back, and their new album, Rookie is out. The record, their first release since their 2008 debut album Partie Traumatic, was recorded and co-produced by Andy LeMaster at Chase Park Transduction.

Black Kids are now on their US tour — check out the dates and cities below.

BLACK KIDS TOUR DATES

9/29 – San Diego, CA @ Casbah
10/22 – Washington, DC – DC9
10/23 – Brooklyn, NY – Baby’s All Right
10/24 – Philadelphia, PA – Boot & Saddle
10/26 – Cambridge, MA – Sonia
10/28 – South Burlington, VT – Showcase Lounge
10/29 – Montreal, Canada – Petit Campus
10/30 – Toronto, Canada – The Garrison

Why did it take the band ten years to record a new album, you ask???
“Much like Odysseus and Co., on our journey to make the ‘difficult second album,’ shit got rough,” singer Reggie Youngblood says. “A few of us heeded the siren call of ‘side projects.’ Tumultuous relationships and periods of Imposter Syndrome also impeded progress. Worst of all, I couldn’t write a chorus. And for a band that worships The Chorus, this was problematic.”

After touring exhaustively in support of Partie Traumatic, Youngblood and his bandmates — bassist Owen Cohen and keyboardists/vocalists Ali Youngblood and Dawn Watley — resettled around the U.S., in Brooklyn, Portland, and Athens, Georgia. Reggie started a power-pop group called Blunt Bangs. Owen released records on Kill Rock Stars under the moniker Gospel Music. Ali and Dawn sang and played and crafted. In late 2015, the four convened in Athens to make “Obligatory Drugs”.

Rookie is more lyrically earnest than its predecessor, and Youngblood notes that the “bratty-ness” is toned down — “but just a lil’ bit,” he says. “Yeah, the themes from our debut are still firmly in place on our sophomore: I love you, but you don’t love me; you love me, but I don’t love you; you’re mean, I’m mean—shall we dance?” Ugh, FINE.

Andrew W.K Tour Dates

Photo Credit: Nina Ottolino

Party God Andrew W.K. is thrilled to announce his first new full-length album in over a decade. The LP showcases Andrew’s signature style of blasting triumphant rock music, with an ever more epic expanse of energizing emotional ecstasy. “I’m going for the sound of pure, unadulterated power; every emotion, every thought, every experience, every sensation, every fear, every joy, every clarity, every confusion, every up, every down… all extruded and concentrated into one thick syrup of super life-force feeling, and then psychically amplified by the celebratory spirit of glorious partying,” explains Andrew. The new release is out March 2, 2018 via Sony Music worldwide. 

Andrew W.K. has officially began his first full-band concert outing in five years with “The Party Never Dies Tour“. Andrew brings his party-centric positivity across America and the previously announced UK tour dates are now moving from November to April, 2018. All tickets bought for the November tour will still be honored at the new dates, or can be refunded at the point of purchase. A full list of all dates can be found below.

A one-man music machine possessed by a single-minded, monomaniacal focus on euphoric joy, Andrew lives to spread a singular message: That to party is to exist, and to exist is to party. Andrew continues to passionately deliver his extremely high-energy brand of uplifting entertainment, with an unrelenting commitment to continuing the mission he first embarked upon in 2001, with the release of his debut single and signature tune “Party Hard”, and has never swerved from since. Despite taking on a dizzying array of additional roles that took him into virgin territory for a rock ‘n’ roll musician (ie: advice columnist for the Village Voice and Vice, host of a Cartoon Network kid’s game show, lecturer at Yale, Harvard, Carnegie Mellon and the UK’s Oxford University), Andrew has always remained true to his positive-partying cause. It’s safe to say, Andrew’s hard-partying spirit is showing no signs of softening.

New Track From Wolf Alice: “Beautifully Unconventional”

London-based rock band Wolf Alice released the music video for their new track “Beautifully Unconventional”.  The video, which was directed by Stephen Agnew, premiered on The FADER. “This song is a celebration of all your non-conforming friends,” Ellie Rowsell explained to The FADER. A celebration of individuality and the adventures that come with embracing that. For me personally, I imagined me and my mate Hannah as Christian Slater and Winona Rider in Heathers albeit looking nothing like them. The video has nothing to do with the song  I just didn’t want to have a mullet anymore, seeing as lots of people tore me to pieces in our last video, so it was an excuse to wear a wig!”
 
“Beautifully Unconventional” will be included on the band’s upcoming sophomore album entitled, Visions Of A Life, which is set for release September 29th, 2017 via Dirty Hit/RCA Records and is available for pre-order now.
