Menzingers
Rented World
Epitaph
ADDS 4/22/14
DIGITAL ONLY

Rented World is the band's follow-up to their 2012 release On The Impossible Past. Though it's still very much a Menzingers album, the band treated this album a little differently enlisted Jon Low with Miner Street Studio to engineer the material. Low, known for his work with indie Americana artists like Sharon Van Etten, The National, and Kurt Vile helped The Menzingers push their boundaries to create Rented World that is 12 tracks of memorable hooks, sentimental lyrics, and fiery heart.

Pitchfork calls The Menzingers's sound "earnest melodic punk with just enough Replacements-esque recklessness."

It's blithely straightforward and excruciatingly passionate," according to Stereogum.

And according to Noisey, Rented World is "gonna be one of the best records of the year."
 


In support of the new album, Menzingers are going on tour with Lemuria, PUP, and Cayetana this spring.

Broken Twin

ADDS 4/22/14
DIGITAL ONLY

Anti- is delighted to announce the signing of Danish artist Broken Twin: the performing moniker of a young and exciting musician, Majke Voss Romme.

After formative years spent listening to artists such as Leonard Cohen, Bill Callahan, Nico and Nick Drake, Broken Twin has found her own voice by delivering haunting piano-based compositions with vocals that echo the stark beauty and eeriness of the northern landscape.

Her 2012 self-released EP “Hold On To Nothing” and deeply moving live performances have already begun to cause a stir in the music press.

NME declared that “Broken Twin is the most arrestingly beautiful songwriter we’ve heard in aeons,” while Pitchfork selected her for Best New Tracks and stated that “there’s something about the unaffected clarity of Broken Twin that rings true straight away.”

Broken Twin has toured with Daughter and James Vincent McMorrow.

Deleted Scenes
Lithium Burn
Park The Van Records
ADDS 4/15/14
DIGITAL ONLY

Check out the Pitchfork Advance here!

“While the Scenes make with the churning, burning and turning, Scheuerman wigs all the way out, his voice bubbling and squeaking like Flanders after a fistful of ghost peppers. Though the wheedling guitars and Scheuerman's overloaded-circuit vocals skirt annoyance at every turn, the stupendously unstable "Stutter" gets by on its total commitment to confusion.” - Pitchfork

“The sound of Deleted Scenes, a D.C.-based quartet formed in 2005, is potent, angular and distinct. The lyrics of Dan Scheuerman, who sings and plays guitar, can be simultaneously poetic and direct. The best part of Deleted Scenes is the unexpected, the unpredictable, and "Stutter" is a perfect example of their hard-to-label style.” - NPR

“songs like "You Get to Say Whatever You Want" practically quake with cathartic force.” - SPIN

Fawn and Rabbit
Fawn and Rabbit
Mint 400 Records
ADDS 4/15/14
DIGITAL ONLY

“This raw album not only combines every influence that we have ever thought of as important; it helps us become them. It is a transformative experience that can only lead you to one conclusion: Fawn and Rabbit should 'own the musical world.' Today and tomorrow.” - Blair James

“What I came away liking most after listening was that for as dreamlike as their music can sound, their lyrics are planted firmly on the ground and explore various emotions, whether it concerns relationships with other people or simply if they're stuck in their own heads and it's a disparity that's pleasing” - Kaleigh

“There’s not a moment of disappointment, nor is there a faltering moment.” - Dylan Tracy

Out the most unlikely of places, a bedroom in Maryland comes musical masterpieces from Alec Morgan and his project Fawn and Rabbit. His music spans the last 40 years of music taking bits and pieces of influence from all the greats and spinning it into amazing pop all recorded on a laptop in DIY fashion. The songs all remain, however, remarkably hi-fi sounding. The newest addition to the New Jersey label Mint 400 Records, Fawn and Rabbit bring you their exciting debut EP.
