"Before Deafheaven’s Sunbather ended up in iPhone ads, another rose-colored metal album crossed over in surprising and significant ways. Ten years ago, Boris released Pink — a wild and stunning amalgamation of the Japanese trio’s previous decade — to U.S. audiences. Pink was prescient in how metal would rethink what it meant to be heavy, with metallic shoegaze butting up against feedback-sick drone and glittery punk. But Pink was mostly just a ruthless rock ‘n’ roll record, banging on MC5’s hard blues and revving High Rise’s motorcycle-guitar with catchy hooks and flashy guitar solos." - Lars Gotrich, NPR Music

"To celebrate the 10-year anniversary of their excellent album Pink, Japanese metal band Boris are reissuing a deluxe edition of the LP. It will come with a bonus album of previously unreleased songs that were recorded at the same time as Pink." - Pitchfork

Boris Pink (Deluxe Edition) is out now. The deluxe version comes with custom packaging in both 3xLP and 2xCD formats, as well as “Forbidden Songs”, a full album’s worth of previously unreleased material. Boris will be touring North America and playing Pink in its entirety. Earth will join them for all US dates.

Guttermouth
Got It Made
Rude Records / Bird Attack Records
ADDS 7/26/16
DIGITAL ONLY

Southern California punk rock veterans Guttermouth have officially released their Got It Made EP through Rude Records and Bird Attack Records.

With their first new material in ten years, Guttermouth has added a new chapter to their legacy as one of punk rock's seminal acts. Known for their short, fast and loud songs, outrageous antics and offensive lyrics, Guttermouth has attracted plenty controversy over the years. In other words - They are punk rock as it's meant to be.

Formed in Huntington Beach, California in 1988, Guttermouth was heavily influenced by the Southern California punk rock scenes of the 1980s which spawned bands such as the Adolescents, The Vandals, Social Distortion, Fear, Descendents, Angry Samoans, Bad Religion and Black Flag.

The band took these influences and developed their own style of fast, punk tempos with humorously sarcastic and offensive lyrics coupled with equally outrageous and offensive behavior, developing a reputation for chaotic live shows.

State Is Burning

Fat Wreck Chords



ADDS 7/12/16

CD / DIGITAL

Middle East musicians USELESS ID make a triumphant return with their latest album State Is Burning. Typically known for a massive sounding songs full of riffs, melody, and nods to their influential contemporaries, USELESS ID take things to a new level with State is Burning by honing all those elements into something truly their own. The evolution of their rejuvenated identity is hallmarked by a more cohesive and aggressive tone in both vocals and instrumentation. Rest assured, they haven't abandoned the overall immense, stadium-ready, anthemic essence of their material, once again recording with famed producer Bill Stevenson (Descendents, Rise Against, NOFX) at the Blasting Room. The results speak for themselves. With 15 scorching tracks State is Burning is a punk rock inferno that'll set expectations ablaze.

Disappointment Island

Sargent House



ADDS 7/12/16

CD / DIGITAL

"On Disappointment Island—the trio’s offered up its most accessible, pop-minded batch of songs yet.” – A.V. Club

"Equal parts Minus the Bear and American Football, they mix cascading melodies, intricate rhythms and distant musings on the minutiae of common life with mind-bending ease." – Paste

"'Sponkulus Nodge' is a heady twister of a track, bass lines dropping down like water from stalactites into a pond rippling with Collis’ impossible guitar licks." – Consequence of Sound

Oxford, England’s TTNG (formerly known as This Town Needs Guns) return with their third full-length, Disappointment Island. Though this is their first record since becoming a trio, you’d never guess it from their sound, which has become more refined and realized than ever before. With their latest album, TTNG have managed to subtly embrace more conventional pop ideals without sacrificing the intensity and musicianship they’re admired for.

Comprised of Tim Collis on guitar and his brother Chris Collis on drums, TTNG’s lineup is completed by vocalist Henry Tremain, who also assumed bass duties after the recording of their last album, 2013’s 13.0.0.0.0. Turning their attention to the studio in late 2015, TTNG decamped to the American Midwest, ground zero for the kind of articulated alternative rock they themselves have been mastering for a decade. Recorded live to tape over 10 days at Chicago’s legendary Electrical Audio studios by Greg Norman (Mclusky, Russian Circles, Pelican, etc.), and mastered by Shellac’s Bob Weston, Disappointment Island proves that the band’s success comes from their ability to write songs whose appeal endures well after the sheer awe of their technical prowess subsides.

TTNG have created an album filled with solemn subject matter where, much like the disparity between the name and setting of Disappointment Island (a real and beautifully unspoiled locale in the Pacific Ocean), the lyrical themes stand in stark contrast to the exciting, propellant music the trio creates together.

As a prime example, the album’s opening track “Coconut Crab” seamlessly showcases inventive, intricate guitar and bass lines threaded through a busy tumble of drums, all lacquered with the sweet falsetto of Tremain’s infectious vocals.

These separate parts recall confessed influences such as the Kinsella brothers’ numerous projects (American Football, Make Believe, Cap’n Jazz) and a familiarity with Dischord Records groups such as Jawbox and Shudder to Think, but the way TTNG fuses these inspirations with their virtuosity results in something utterly unique. TTNG have existed in several incarnations and have found success in each, but their current evolution pushes what has always made the band great into new and exciting territories. Disappointment Island is TTNG’s most poignant, deliberate accomplishment, successfully arriving at a place that is simultaneously authentic and reverential.

No Joy

Drool Sucker

Topshelf Records



ADDS 7/19/16

DIGITAL ONLY

Stop trying to define No Joy. In 6 years the noisy Montreal quartet has released a compelling and critically acclaimed discography and shared the stage with some of this decade’s most influential acts. Yet no one can quite figure this band out.

Tagging No Joy as “shimmery infectious dream pop” doesn’t work since the band’s live shows are so brutal that it has them sharing the stage with bands like Deafheaven and F*cked Up. Classifying them as “doom shoegaze” doesn't work either since the band has created records so complex and sonically mature they transcend genres. Nostalgic yet new, loud yet quiet; No Joy’s conflicting reputation cannot be classified because it’s in constant evolution.

This year, No Joy will be releasing a series of EPs as a creative F-You: To everyone who told them they need to play quieter, needed to show their faces more onstage, who told them they should only include the girls in the press photos; pigeonholing No Joy won’t make them any easier to understand. This is no stopgap; this is a series of statements from a band that clearly are trying to defy definition. The Drool Sucker EP (July 15, 2016 via Topshelf Records) is the first of the series.

Drool Sucker was recorded quickly in a barn in rural Ontario with Graham Walsh (Viet Cong, Metz, Alvvays) and Brian Borcherdt, who respectively make up the band Holy F*ck. This is the most electric No Joy has sounded, the energy from their live shows transcending into the recordings. Singer Jasamine White-Gluz is not only exploring her range vocally, but these are some of the most emotive performances to date.

No Joy's debut album Ghost Blonde was one of the standouts of the shoegaze revival in 2010. 2013’s sophomore Wait to Pleasure proved to be their sonic breakout success, while last year's More Faithful solidified No Joy as one of the genre strongest innovators. Throughout all these major releases (as well as their collection of EPs and singles) it's almost as if No Joy want to keep you guessing.

Stop making this band about gender. Stop making this band about nostalgia. Instead of trying to label what the band has been, let’s see where the band is about to go.

Wasted Mind

Fat Wreck Chords



ADDS 7/19/16

CD / DIGITAL

DIRECT HIT isn't a punk band so much as a collection of pureed grey matter. But this summer – with the help of Fat Wreck Chords – the Milwaukee-based group will make those mushy brains useful by releasing Wasted Mind: a 12-track concept album inspired by the warped sensibilities of such savage works as Burroughs' Naked Lunch and Thompson's Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas.

Produced by All-American Rejects guitarist Mike Kennerty, Wasted Mind follows a cast of drug-addled, medicated and insane characters who check in and out of reality with reckless abandon. Musically it delivers on everything DIRECT HIT fans have come to expect: clever lyrical content, catchy hook-laden riffs, and driving pop-punk anthems. From “Forced to Sleep” to “Promised Land” to “Artificial Confidence,” the massive polished sound of Wasted Mind begs to be sung/screamed along with. An April tour supporting NOFX and relentless dates to follow throughout 2016 will give fans a chance to do just that.

Of course, DIRECT HIT doesn’t limit their mind altering output to albums and live shows; their creativity runs into the realm of video as well (they’ve got 15 videos to their credit after only two albums!!). As part of the concept of Wasted Mind the band are filming 3 videos to be released leading up to and after the album’s release.

Clean edits were sent to radio and are available on the downloads page below!

Tegan and Sara

Love You To Death

Warner Bros.



ADDS 6/14/16

CD / DIGITAL

Album of the Week - Stereogum

"After going synth-pop on 2013's Heartthrob, Tegan and Sara team up once again with super-producer Greg Kurstin for the follow up. At their best, they boil love songs down to their aching essence." - Pitchfork (7.1)

Propelled by the conviction of reinvention, Tegan and Sara’s 8th studio album, Love You To Death, is the latest sonic chapter in a celebrated 17-year career. Produced by Greg Kurstin (Adele, Sia, Beck, Ellie Goulding), Love You To Death delivers 10 new Tegan and Sara tracks more vibrant and visionary than ever.

Tegan and Sara explored a transcendent pop sheen for the first time on 2013’s Heartthrob, which deftly balanced critical acclaim with mainstream ambitions. They follow it up here with an equally explosive production, but one that casts darker shadows and lingers longer in the psyche. Taking a page from dramatic non-fiction, Love You To Death finds Tegan and Sara mining their own lives to investigate complex relationship dynamics. At one moment the subject is their own inescapable relationship as twin sisters (100x, White Knuckles), while at another it’s a romantic relationship that drives the protagonist to mournful regret (“That Girl”). Secret relationships (“Boyfriend”) give way to social judgment about passion and transience (“Faint of Heart”). Marriage is eloquently questioned as a barometer for commitment (“BWU”), while commitment itself is questioned with a deliberately self-conscious anti-love-song (“U-turn”). With each album their writing grows in precision and vulnerability, and differing lyrical voices continue to sharpen their respective identities – Tegan’s unapologetically clear word choice in evaluating romance (“Stop Desire”) is balanced by Sara’s poetic reflections on anxiety (“Hang on to the Night”).

Even as they’ve been embraced by the mainstream, Tegan and Sara consciously operate to the left of popular culture – their lyrical and social wisdom comes from an outside vantage looking in. Paradoxically, the essential message that underpins their worldview and identity is inclusion. So it is only fitting that these two self-described outsiders have ultimately found acceptance from such a diverse amalgamation of cultural forces. This is a band that can perform comfortably alongside Katy Perry or Neil Young, Taylor Swift or The Killers. You may have seen them in the dusty desert at Coachella or on the pristine stage at the Academy Awards. Few other contemporary artists can cross boundaries of genre and culture so effortlessly.

Twin sisters born in Calgary, Alberta and now residing in Vancouver, BC, Tegan and Sara’s career numbers are impressive – over 1 million albums sold, 7 Gold certifications, 1 Double Platinum certification, 3 Juno Awards, 2 Polaris Prize nominations, and a Grammy nomination. But even more impressive is the conviction that has driven Tegan and Sara’s relentless evolution as artists. Transitioning from acoustic roots to indie rock royalty in the mid 2000s, with widely-acclaimed albums So Jealous (2004) and The Con (2007), they began the path of reinvention that continues to inform their creative identity today.

If the highest intention of the artist is to self-actualize, Tegan and Sara have given their devoted audience the gift of a front-row seat to their lifelong process of evolution.

Put the Kid On the Sleepy Horse

Topshelf Records



ADDS 6/21/16

CD / DIGITAL

"The most intriguing hook occurs on 'Nine Times,' where brash slide guitars and shifty rhythms pivot into a stately march on the chorus. Elsewhere the choruses cruise rather than soar, and Grisham’s lyrics cut your skin but never draw blood." - Pitchfork

"It’s a slinky, sumptuous slice of Americana-infused emo-rock, up there with the greats of the turn of the century but housing a beating modern heart of gold." - DIY

"Nine Times has the angular, quirky nature of its debut, Nines & Sixes, but retains alt-country inclinations that popped up time and again on 2011’s Disguised As Ghosts." - The AV Club

Having been a band for over two decades, Evansville, IN’s Mock Orange have seen and done quite a bit throughout the years. Despite releasing a handful of ever-evolving albums and EPs, touring the world over, and slowly amassing a devoted fanbase, there was bound to be a hiccup at some point. It arrived upon the culmination of the band’s most recent recording sessions when a hard drive failure meant all of their recordings were in jeopardy. Fast forward a couple years — and several hard drive specialists later — and the recordings were finally recovered safely. Self-recorded and mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side, the result is Put the Kid On the Sleepy Horse — the band’s eighth full length studio album and most cohesive work yet. Put the Kid On the Sleepy Horse is available now on Topshelf Records.

NPR First Listen

"Warp and Weft, the 2013 solo album from Veirs which featured guest appearances by Lang and Case, was something of a dress rehearsal, and now comes Case / Lang / Veirs, a three-way songwriting summit that is utterly devoid of flab or filler." - The National (4 stars)

‘An album of rare beauty and intelligence’ - Independent (4 stars)

"Perhaps we should have expected nothing less than these immaculately performed and skillfully written and overall classy tracks with the impressive level of talent involved. Still, it’s impossible to overstate how marvelously moving and purely enjoyable the end result is, paving the way, we hope, for a follow-up." - American Songwriter

"No matter how much the three singers have accomplished individually, pedigree only takes you so far in group projects — a flash of attention, at best. The work is what counts, and it's the songs and their organic presentation that make "case/lang/veirs" resonate." - Chicago Tribune

Say It Out Loud

Hellcat/Epitaph



ADDS 6/28/16

CD / DIGITAL

Los Angeles-based ska-punk band The Interrupters will release their sophomore album, Say It Out Loud, on June 24 via Hellcat Records. Say It Out Loud is undeniably fun and urgent in message. And backing their modernized 2-Tone-tinged, guitar-fueled, melody-heavy sound are lyrics that confront everything from social control and self-empowerment to domestic violence and the media circus surrounding the next presidential election.

True to The Interrupters’ unabandoned passion and personal-meets-political dynamic, the first song shared from the album is “By My Side,” a fist-pumping, tender tribute to outcast solidarity.

Since the release of their 2014 self-titled debut, The Interrupters have split their time between touring with the likes of The English Beat and Bad Religion and cranking out new material that shows off their irrepressible sensibility. So when the time came to record their sophomore album Say It Out Loud, the four-piece hit the studio with Rancid’s Tim Armstrong and fired off 14 new songs that both capture their frenetic energy and reveal a whole new level of boldness in their songwriting.

“Over the past couple years we got to know ourselves so much better as a band, and that gave us a lot of room to really grow on this album,” notes frontwoman Aimee Interrupter, whose bandmates include guitarist Kevin Bivona, bassist Justin Bivona, and drummer Jesse Bivona.

Produced by Armstrong and recorded partly at his studio (as well as at Travis Barker’s Opra Studios), Say It Out Loud are a batch of feel-good songs proving The Interrupters’ unstoppably upbeat spirit. The Interrupters have forged a formidable bond that deeply informs their music. “Loyalty, family, friendship, and unity—with upstrokes,” says Kevin. “That pretty much sums up The Interrupters and what we are all about.”

The Bride

Parlophone/ Warner Bros. Records



ADDS 7/5/16

CD / DIGITAL

“The tenderness of the English artist’s cut-glass vocals, and the way she so fully inhabits every world she creates, pulls you right in with her, clinging on to her sides as she pilots another eagle across the cosmos.” - Pitchfork on The Bride

NPR: First Listen

"Natasha Khan takes another step toward the vaunted pantheon of British art rock" - Consequence of Sound: Album Review (B)

Bat For Lashes – aka multi-instrumentalist and visual artist Natasha Khan - will release her latest album, The Bride, via Parlophone/ Warner Bros. Records on July 1, 2016. The album’s captivating first track, “I Do” premiered last month to rapturous response while suggesting a bridal theme. The album’s second preview, the foreboding synth-driven “In God’s House,” continues with the mysterious narrative.

The Bride follows the story of a woman whose fiancé has been killed in a crash on the way to the church for their wedding. The Bride flees the scene to take the honeymoon trip alone, resulting in a dark meditation on love, loss, grief, and celebration. Written as the soundtrack for a feature length film in mind, The Bride is Khan’s most ambitious work to date, sonically and visually incorporating an entire world inhabited by The Bride, along with the characters and places she encounters on the way.

The Bride was conceived of and produced by Natasha Khan alongside a host of long-time collaborators and friends including Simone Felice, Dan Carey, Head and Ben Christophers. Inspired by a short film Khan wrote and directed entitled I Do, making its debut at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival in NYC in April, The Bride was created over the course of 18 months across London, Los Angeles, and Brighton. Finally last Autumn, Natasha headed to the mountains of Woodstock, NY, where she built a studio into the ground floor of a big old house and lived there for two months, finishing the record with co-producer Simone Felice (Lumineers, Felice Bros).

The album was mixed by Head in London and mastered at Metropolis Studios.

The lush narrative of the artwork was conceived as a visual partnership between Natasha and Neil Krug over a period of two years. The Bride's universe was the product of intense collaboration and experimentation.
