calexico cover art 

Calexico's ninth studio album, The Thread That Keeps Us, is available to stream now at NPR's First Listen NPR called the album (QUOTE). The album is out January 26th via Anti- Records. Largely inspired by lead singer Joey Burns' wanderings around Northern California during the album's production, the narratives embedded in The Thread That Keeps Us reflect on displacement, transitory existence, and - in his own words, "returning to your home after being gone for some time and seeing how things have changed, and maybe not in the best way." Working with their longtime engineer Craig Schumacher, Calexico co-produced The Thread That Keeps Us, gathering musicians from across the globe to dream up an earthy yet expansive sound spiked with jagged guitar tones and flashes of distortion. 

You can pre-order The Thread That Keeps Us HERE.

The band will be touring beginning this April. See all dates below. They recently performed on CBS Saturday Morning's "Saturday Sessions".

Brazilian Girls Return with New Full Length Album on Six Degrees Records

BRAZILIAN GIRLS
LET’S MAKE LOVE

Fourth Album Out April 13 via Six Degrees Records,
First New Album Since 2008’s Grammy-Nominated New York City

Hear New Single, the Modern-Age New Wave Love Song “Pirates”

Brazilian Girls return in 2018 with Let’s Make Love, their fourth album and first since 2008’s Grammy-nominated New York City. Due April 13 via Six Degrees Records, the album release will be followed by a short U.S. tour in May (see dates below & tix here). First single “Pirates” is a modern-age new wave love song that frontwoman Sabina Sciubba describes as, “a song about sleeping and sleeping together. How we should all sleep more and sleep more together. It would change everything. Actually that's what the whole record is about. It may even be the true meaning of life." Hear “Pirates” via Rolling Stone and here:https://soundcloud.com/sixdegreesrecords/brazilian-girls-pirates.

Let’s Make Love was produced by longtime collaborator Frederik Ruben and came to life over the course of several years. The four band members—Didi Gutman (keyboards, vocals), Aaron Johnston (drums, percussion, vocals), Jesse Murphy (bass, vocals) and Sciubba (lead vocals, electronics)—are now scattered throughout the U.S. and Europe and they assembled when possible to write and record, piggybacking those sessions onto gigs in Istanbul and Madrid, Paris and New York. Despite the distance, the group consistently found their chemistry as kinetic as when they first started outSciubba notes, "It's a little astounding to us because we'll go so long without playing, and then we get together and things just happen in this very harmonious way."

On Let’s Make Love, the band brings a woozy romanticism to many tracks. The album gets its title from the frenetic yet ethereal “Let’s Make Love,” a track that takes a more classically arranged form than the band’s earlier work. At the same time, both album and title track embody the quintessential spirit of Brazilian Girls: their strange balance of wildness and elegance, cheeky humor and fractured poetry, soulful mystique and libertine wisdom. “Right now ‘Let’s Make Love’ seems like a very good message to put into the world,” saysSciubba of the song’s inspiration. “It’s not even ‘Make love, not war’—it’s just ‘Make love,’ and nothing else.”

But on songs like the feel-good dance number about social decay, “Wild Wild Web,” and “Impromptu”—an exquisitely scornful track that Sciubba calls “an anti-conformist anthem,” Let's Make Love slips into a defiant mood suited to the album’s punk-inspired sensibilities. “The electronic stuff we were creating before has become very popular, so maybe we should be doing that again,” says Gutman of Brazilian Girls’ shift in aesthetic. “But ‘we should’ isn’t an idea that exists with us. We do whatever we feel in the moment.”

The album was closely informed by the more commanding vocal delivery that Sciubba brought to the album. “Sabina kind of reinvented herself in the way that she sings on this record—she sounds a little bit like Elvis Presley,” says Gutman. “Singing is just an extension of your way of communicating,” Sciubba adds, “and as a young girl you feel this need to be nice and polite, even in the form of creating. And then, as you get older, you just want to get straight to the point—you don’t want any bullshit. There’s a need to be more authentic.”

Formed in 2003, the group was born after the four members crossed paths at East Village club Nublu where they began playing the weekly, embracing a free-form ethos that helped shape their kaleidoscopic sound. Fast earning attention for their euphoric live show—and winning fans like Zach Galifianakis, who later castSciubba as a regular on his FX show Baskets—Brazilian Girls released their self-titled debut in 2005 and sophomore album Talk to La Bomb in 2006.

In reflecting on Let’s Make Love, Brazilian Girls attribute their sustained momentum to an egalitarian mentality. “I think the fact that we’ve been able to last so long and keep moving forward has to do with this all starting in a very collaborative way,” says Murphy. And thanks to that sense of openness, the band’s stayed true to an instinct-led process that makes their music all the more exhilarating for both artist and audience.

05/06 Boston, MA - Brighton Music Hall

THE VACCINES RELEASE VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE “I CAN’T QUIT” TODAY

THE VACCINES RELEASE VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE “I CAN’T QUIT” TODAY

FOURTH ALBUM COMBAT SPORTS SET TO RELEASE MARCH 30; AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER NOW
Today, The Vaccines release the video for their brand new single “I Can’t Quit” – watch HERE. The single is taken from the band’s forthcoming highly anticipated fourth album Combat Sports, which is set to release on March 30 on Columbia Records.

The Vaccines said, “We wanted to make something immediate and direct, and not overly conceptual.

I like the idea that there could be discussions going on as to what happened in the video long after it is made”.

The Vaccines are without doubt one of the biggest and most adored British bands of our generation. Starting their career with a bang in 2011 with the year’s bestselling debut album What Did You Expect from the Vaccines?, 2012 then saw the release of the equally successful Come of Age, which charted at #1 in the UK, and in 2015 English Graffiti charted at #2. Combined, the band have sold over 1 million records worldwide.


Combat Sport Tracklisting:
1. Put It On a T-Shirt
2. I Can’t Quit
3. Your Love Is My Favourite Band
4. Surfing in the Sky
5. Maybe (Luck of the Draw)
6. Young American
7. Nightclub

Of Montreal Announce New Album, Out 3/9 + Share Track

of Montreal Announce New Album White Is Relic/Irrealis Mood, Out March 9 Via Polyvinyl Record Co



Release First Track “Paranoiac Intervals/Body Dysmorphia,” Listen + Share Here, Watch the Music Video via Apple Music

Announce US Tour Dates


Today, of Montreal have released their new song “Paranoiac Intervals/Body Dysmorphia.” The track appears on their forthcoming album White Is Relic/Irrealis Mood out March 9, 2018 via Polyvinyl Record Co. Additionally, the music video for “Paranoiac Intervals/Body Dysmorphia” can be viewed today exclusively via Apple Music.  Listen and share “Paranoiac Intervals/Body Dysmorphia” here and pre-order the album here.

"Two important events occurred during the making of White Is Relic/Irrealis Mood. I became "Simulated Reality" paranoid and I fell in LOVE," says frontman Kevin Barnes. "My paranoia began during the presidential election cycle and reached a dangerous peak shortly after the inauguration. In the meantime I watched and read countless works of art in a mad effort to be reminded of how many truly brilliant people there are living/struggling among us and to try to maintain a positive outlook. The works of Angela Davis, Noam Chomsky, Chris Kraus, Ta-Nehisi Coates, and the Autobiographies of Malcolm X and Mark E Smith were all great inspirations, to name a few."

Musically, White is Relic/Irrealis Mood draws inspiration from extended dance mixes used for pop singles during the 80's. "I used that template with these tracks, I wanted them all to feel like the extended "club edit" of album tracks" says Barnes. Abandoning familiar approaches to recording used on recent of Montreal albums, Barnes decided instead to work alone or remotely with collaborators. Composer Zac Colwell contributed saxophones and synths to most of the songs. Also enlisted were long time collaborators, and of Montreal touring members, Clayton Rychlik and JoJo Glidewell.

The two title concept used by Barnes for the album title and track names arose from him "thinking about how difficult it is to frame the message of a song with just one title, because so often the songs are about so many different subjects. ‘White Is Relic’ was inspired by James Baldwin’s writings regarding the creation and propagation of a toxic American White identity. I've come to learn how it's just a tool wielded by the 1% to give poor white people a false sense of superiority in an effort to keep the masses placated and numb to how deeply we're all getting fucked by our capitalist rulers. An ‘Irrealis Mood’ is a linguistic indicator that something isn't yet reality but does have the potential to become so."

Third Man Records to release new Brendan Benson vinyl 7"

THIRD MAN RECORDS TO RELEASE NEW SINGLE
   

Third Man Records has announced a new single from Brendan Benson, "Half a Boy (and Half a Man)", his first solo single for the label. "Half a Boy (and Half a Man)" is available now digitally, and the 7" with exclusive b-side "Big Kid Face" will be available starting this Friday, January 19 at independent record stores. A limited edition tri-color 7" will be on sale for one day only, this Friday, January 19th, exclusively at Third Man Records storefronts in Nashville and Detroit, available first come, first served only for as long as the line and supplies lasts. Third Man Nashville will host a solo in-store and signing with Brendan that afternoon at 5pm. Order the 7" on black vinyl here.

Described by Clash Music as "one of America's best songwriters", Brendan Benson has consistently unfurled unparalleled melodies and lyrics in his acclaimed career. Over twenty years in, he's still wowing folks and "Half a Boy (and Half a Man)" is a powerful dollop of power chords wrapped into a tale of split personalities. Backed with an astute cover of Jules Shear's "Big Kid Face" from his 1989 album The Third Party in which Benson helps shine a light on this oft-overlooked but seminal songwriter. "'Half a Boy (and Half a Man)' was one of the last songs to be recorded in my Nashville based recording studio before it was completely demolished and made into a parking lot, but it is a personal comeback for me," says Benson of the new songs. "I've been producing and co-writing so much that I kinda lost sight of myself. Making this album has brought me home again."

Best known as half of the songwriting team at the heart of the Raconteurs (along with Jack White) Brendan Benson's career has never slowed across six solo albums, two Raconteurs full-lengths, countless collaborations and placements and a seat as one of the most respected and reliable writer, performers, producer, engineer and musical jack-of-all-trades. Despite his long history in the label family, this is the first time Benson will have a release on Third Man Records as a solo artist.
