Boonaroo updates

March 6th, 2010

Superfly and A.C. Entertainment are proud to announce that the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival has added several artists to the 2010 event, further diversifying a wonderfully eclectic and stellar lineup. Updates include Bonnaroo veterans Ween, Galactic and Umphrey’s McGee as as well as gifted singer/songwriter Brandi Carlisle and the genre- bending, post-punk trio The Gossip. A full list of confirmed acts follows.

The largest and most revered music and camping event in the country, Bonnaroo has elevated the American rock festival to an unprecedented level. The Wall Street Journal called Bonnaroo “one of rock’s best festivals,” continuing to hail that the 2009 lineup “fairly bursts with some of the most gifted acts in rock and pop.” Entertainment Weekly called it “the best of all sonic worlds,” while the New York Times said, “Bonnaroo’s very loose mandate – and a wise one for any festival – is to choose performers who deliver in a live performance, with current hits and studio expertise as lower priorities. One of the pleasures of the festival is that it defies narrowcasting: It’s not an Americana festival, an indie-rock festival, a gathering of 2008-9 hitmakers or anything but what its producers and, presumably, ticket-buyers are happy to hear.” Rolling Stone called Bonnaroo “one of the 50 moments to change the history of rock and roll.”

Think About Life Premiere “Havin’ A Baby” Video /Add More Dates To US Spring Tour / Announce SXSW Dates /Family LP Out Now On Alien8 Recordings

March 6th, 2010

Think About Life is a Montreal based band that formed in 2005 as a collaboration between a few friends in an industrial building in a lost corner of Montreal. The band cultivated their sound and show playing parties building a reputation as Canada’s hottest live dance party ticket and now that reputation has begun to spread around the globe.

Their latest album, “Family”, is a step out of the recesses of dark loft spaces and into the light. Every song on this record makes you feel better than the last, which, lets face it, is what the world needs now. The album was released on Alien8 Recordings in Canada in May 2009 and in the United States in October 2009, receiving resounding accolades from the Canadian press, culminating in the band making the Polaris Prize nominee long list and several year‐end “best of” lists. Pitchfork listed the song “Havin’ my Baby” as “Best New Track” in November and the CBC in Canada listed Think About Life as the Canadian band to watch in 2010.

The bands’ four members: unparalleled front man Martin Cesar, melodic wiz Graham Van Pelt, bassist and vocalist Caila Thompson‐Hannant and flying drummer Greg Napier, just completed their UK live debut with a series of shows in London this February. They will follow this up with an extended UK tour in May 2010. In addition, the band will be making an extensive spring tour of North America including appearances at SXSW and Canadian Music Week.

When not dancing themselves into a sweat on stage with Think About Life, the band also work on other great projects including Miracle Fortress, Shapes & Sizes, Special Noise, amongst others.

Woven Bones preps new album for HoZac, tours

March 6th, 2010

 

Since the beginning, Woven Bones have primarily been the brainchild of singer/guitarist Andrew Burr from the point where their primordial ooze first seeped into our sphere of peripheral vision. After uprooting from Orlando in 2008 and settling in Austin, Texas last year, followed by touring the darkest corners of the underground stratosphere, their seedy and insidiously slithered drawl has fully come to a head, summoning the the pulse-pounding power to stand all hairs on-end. As bassist Matty and recently recruited drummer Carolyn have completed the fold, Woven Bones need no announcement to herald their arrival, but as their irresistibly iridescent hazy pop grime drills itself deeper into your soft skull, it’s best to just stand back and experience them exploding out of your speakers.

Like the eardrum-shattering noise pop icons that came before them, Woven Bones blaze their own trail of lascivious loudness and controlled snarl that’s just what the world needs right now, and the perfect soundtrack to your screwed-up summer. The debut album, In and Out and Back Again delivers nine heart-stabbing hits that just keep hitting back, so without further hesitation, we give you the debut album that explodes heads on contact, by your new favorite band, Woven Bones. Listen to Wiven Bones ‘If it feels alright’

Extraneous noise

March 4th, 2010

I got this mail from Extraneous Noise, a small music management and video production company based out of Boston. They say one of their goals is to capture great multi-camera live footage of indie artists that come through Boston. It seems they have worked with a large number of bands in the past few months, including Hanne Hukkelberg, Bad Veins, and Royal Bangs. I watched few of their live clips and loved what I have seen, especially The Bad veins one, full of raw energy. As for the quality, if you thought you`d try it at home, it would require you to purchase 3 Panasonic GH1`s guys, so there you are. Enjoy


SLOW CLUB ANNOUNCE SPRING TOUR DATES AND SXSW SCHEDULE

March 4th, 2010


 

Moshi Moshi Records are excited to announce Slow Club‘s upcoming tour dates and appearance at SXSW 2010. It all leads into the March 30th release of their debut album Yeah, So, the first record to be released in North America by the band as well as their label Moshi Moshi.
 
The UK duo’s charming take on folk-pop is starting to make an impression in the United States. The “Sheffield boy-girl duo nail precious, vulnerable feelings over the course of their sweet (but not twee or saccharine) indie pop debut,” wrote Pitchfork in an early review of the record that ran this week.  “Everything, from their cheery optimism to their crestfallen lovesickness is life-sized and lived-in.” Meanwhile Prefix Magazine described the upcoming release as a “smart step off the boat for the record label.” It builds upon the waves Slow Club have already made in the UK, where the BBC praised the band for their music’s “range of uncomplicated ideas executed brilliantly and brazenly by a band of two,” and the NME labeled any would be detractors “idiots” in a glowing 8 out of 10 star review.

Audio Bullys LP out On May 18th On Cooking Vinyl

March 4th, 2010

Audio Bullys return with a new album on 29th March. Higher Than The Eiffel follows a four year gap since the pair’s second album, ‘Generation’ and sees Simon Franks and Tom Dinsdale recapture the energy and dancefloor instincts that made Audio Bullys one of the most successful UK dance acts of the previous decade. Mixing their love of house and breaks with an expansive cast list of musical collaborators, switching across dance’s myriad genres and throwing away the rule book has led Audio Bullys to make their finest record to date, a worthy successor to breakthrough debut ‘Ego War’ and follow up ‘Generation’, which spawned the massive worldwide hit, ‘Shot You Down’. 

Audio Bullys make no secret of the fact that the long gap between ‘Generation’ and Higher Than The Eiffel was in part down to that massive success. Having lost their way following the release of ‘Generation’, Higher Than The Eiffel sees the pair return to top form after a few false starts. Recorded in a six month burst through 2009 and made with the express intent of creating an album for their mates rather than a record company, to be ‘respected by the people that you want to respect you’ as Si puts it, the fourteen tracks range from the full on club stomp of lead single, ‘Only Man’ and rave anthemics of recent free download ‘Kiss The Sky’, to the psychedelic come down of ‘Daisy Chains’, the Chic guitar disco of ‘Dynamite’ and the ska stylings of ‘Goodbye’. The bangers are still here but this is a complete album, a journey through various dance musics, all held together by Si’s conversational lyrics and the little production twists and turns that are the hallmark of Audio Bullys sound.

Recorded and produced by the band with help from a cast of friends including Suggs and Mike Barson of Madness, Charlie Creed Miles and Si’s brother Jimmy, Higher Than The Eiffel is released on the band’s own Face Piece imprint via Cooking Vinyl on APRIL 27th on Cooking Vinyl.

After two years of stuttering, Audio Bullys had sprung back to life, the fourteen tracks of Higher Than The Eiffel laid down in that six month period. Album three, the album that had seemed so impossible previously, was duly finished and ready for action. More than a collection of like-minded tunes, more than a selection of beats to be played intermittently in DJ sets, this was the real deal, an album of highs and lows, a collation of influences from those classic songwriters through the myriad dance musics of funk, house and techno with a good dose of punk attitude and electro beats where electronics or live instrumentation took their place when it felt right rather than because that was how things had been done before.

Album now complete, the pair cannot wait to unleash it on the public and are looking forward to getting back in front of people live. Whilst there have been DJ sets in the meantime and a rare live showing in London, March sees Tom and Si take Higher Than The Eiffel on the road in the UK and they can’t wait.

‘We want to get back to that live thing and the buzz that goes around a live gig is a lot more fun than Djing where, no matter what you’ve done, there isn’t a focus. we really want this album to be presented live’.

Not long to wait but for now, welcome back Audio Bullys, stronger and wiser than before and back doing what they do best, making music for the joy of making music and sharing it with others. Let’s leave the last word to Si, with what pretty much is the Audio Bullys new manifesto, from ‘We Don’t Care’ to ‘We Do Care’ if you will. It’s been a long wait but Si and Tom are back

‘I love making tunes and that’s what keeps me alive, if we’ve made something that gives me a buzz that’s why you do it. We almost had to make a few things that didn’t work to remind us what it is that drives us. At times you start to think it’s easy to make music but it isn’t and it’s about capturing a moment and we’ve done that on this album’.
