Check It Out: Justin Sawicki – “Upsala Trees”


Listen: Justin Sawicki – “Upsala Trees”

Check out this track from Justin Sawicki, whose self titled second album just came out on December 11. The record was made entirely in his home studios and Justin says this most recent effort is more hones and mature with a strong focus on traditional roots rhythms and arrangements. During the tracking and production process… he met his wife, got married, bought a house, and had his first son.

Check ‘Em Out: Tin Can Radio

Explosive indie-dance/art-rock five-piece from Brisbane, Australia, Tin Can Radio, are celebrating the release of their debut album, Chase the Sun, Hold the Night with a massive 20 date tour around metropolitan and regional Australia. The tour spans over April and May of 2011.

The debut album, Chase the Sun, Hold the Night, is the accumulation of two acclaimed single-releases and many hard months in the studio. The 11 track LP runs a knife edge between accessible and fun, and ambitious and sonically challenging; journeying through dreamy landscapes, sing-along hooks, punchy guitar driven riffs and grinding dubstep breakdowns. (AWE-SOME!)

Lead singer Tom Wearne explains, “The album is a reflection of our shared struggle in trying to do exactly what we want to do, our attempts to live forever, to never sleep and to have never ending, uncompromised fun. You could say that these are over-riding themes in the songs, but they are also over-riding themes in our lives and the reason why we make this music.”
