February 22, 2011 -- The alternative rock band dredg from San Francisco can note a constantly growing number of followers and lovers since they decided to play music together more than 15 years ago, in 1995.
As there have been several rumors on the Internet recently about the successor of THE PARIAH, THE PARROT, THE DELUSION we are now happy to announce that dredg are finally going to release their fifth studio album CHUCKLES AND MR. SQUEEZY in late April/early May (see above for exact dates) in Europe (outside of G/S/A) and on May 3, 2011 the U.S. Those who are expecting the record to be a consistent continuance of THE PARIAH, THE PARROT, THE DELUSION will no doubt be surprised: this album is completely different from everything dredg have ever done before.
It took the band members almost eight months of exchanging song-material via e-mail to finish the album--a process producer Dan The Automator (Gorillaz, Kasabian, etc.) was also involved in right from the early beginnings. His influence becomes most apparent in the songs “The Tent,” “Sun Goes Down” and “Before it Began” where he also took an active part in the songwriting. Even though there is a lot of variation in tones and tempo, singer Gavin sums up the general sound of CHUCKLES AND MR. SQUEEZY as “Dark Pop”: a dark undertone is giving the songs some kind of a contemplative self-analysis – but in the end the album is still characterized by its optimism. “There is a certain darkness to it,” Gavin agrees. “A lot of our music is ultimately positive but can be conceived as sad as well. It has these two sides that oppose each other, but manage to reconcile in the music.”
With CHUCKLES AND MR. SQUEEZY dredg is breaking new grounds in their career – in a new, yet unexplored direction. The influence Dan The Automator had on this record is obvious. His status as a producer and co-worker lead him to an additional role as a guide, giving the band the impulse to work harder, to take a closer look at themselves and finally take this as an inspiration for creating their music and lyrics.
The last 15 years of development brought dredg to an unexpected, yet welcomed point in their career. “For me this is a renewal kind of record,” Gavin says. “It feels different and in some ways it feels like a new band. That was my goal when working with the band and with Dan--to make something we’d never done. Hopefully people can see the band in a new light. We can mold to different things and there is a future for the band when it comes to creating.”
Tour dates for 2011 will be announced soon.

Toronto’s Indie Pop Heavies SWEET THING Play NYC and SXSW

** 'Change of Seasons' Break Out Single Off Their Self-Titled Debut Album **
These five Torontonians blast crowds with shiny, happy pop, but have no qualms about working the word "motherfucker" into a chorus’ -Chartattack
‘Charged with dueling guitars, foot stomping grooves, soulful harmony singing and a healthy dose of hand claps, they want to make you dance.[…] The kids have got moxie!’- CBC Radio 3
New York, NY – With a Canadian Radio Music Award nomination for their song, “Change of Seasons,” and brand spankin’ new single, “Lazy Susan,” that’s climbing the top of the charts,Sweet Thing will be wrapping up their highly buzzed Canadian tour with a stop off in the U.S. The band will be showcasing their rockin’ indie pop stylings on March 14th at Pianos in NYC and all throughout SXSW in Austin, TX.
Hailing from Toronto, Sweet Thing was formed three years ago by Owen Carrier, the lead singer, and Alex Winter, the lead guitarist. From there, they gathered the talents Nick Rose, Tyler Kyte, and Morgan Waters, ultimately creating the five-piece band, Sweet Thing. With the dueling guitar harmonies of Alex Winter and Nick Rose, Morgan Waters laying down the bass line, and Tyler Kyte driving the beat, Owen Carrier’s voice carries angelically across the stage.
With this tight-knit group, Sweet Thing has become known for their catchy and cleverly written songs, amazing live performances, entertaining personalities, and their high-profile fans (including Emma Stone and George Stroumboulopoulus). Since the release of their self-titled debut album and with their song, “Change of Seasons,” being featured in the film, Easy A, Sweet Thing has established strong excitement for their tour in Canada as well as stateside. The band has already lined up a series of high profile gigs in NYC and Austin for SXSW. The New York show is schedule for March 14th at Pianos and later that week, Sweet Thing, will be making their way down to Texas for SXSW to play shows starting March 18th.

The Shit Robot Show Invades the US & SXSW, Supports LCD Soundsystem in NYC!

The Shit Robot Show Invades The U.S. & SXSW,
Limited Edition Remix 12” Out Now via DFA!


Download an edit of John Talabot’s
“Take ‘Em Up” Remix HERE!

12" From DFA Records HERE

The Shit Robot Show Tour Live Dates
March 17 – Austin, TX (SXSW) - 508 (Live Stage)
March 18 – Austin, TX (SXSW) - Vice Loose Control
March 19 – Austin, TX (SXSW) - La Zona Rosa
March 22 – Chicago, IL - Double Door

March 26 – Miami, FL – Ultra Music Festival
March 30 – New York, NY – Terminal 5 (supporting LCD Soundsystem)
March 31 – New York, NY – Terminal 5 (supporting LCD Soundsystem)

Shit Robot has announced details of his live show, The Shit Robot Show. The live AV show features Shit Robot performing inside a customized screen, which will feature custom-designed visuals to accompany a selection of re-worked tracks from Shit Robot’s back catalogue. The debut U.S. performances will take place at SXSW in Austin,
followed by several other U.S. tour dates, including two spots opening for
LCD Soundsystem at Terminal 5.
On February 21, Shit Robot released a limited edition remix 12” (on white vinyl!) on DFA Records. It features remixes of previous singles "Tuff Enuff" and "Take Em Up" by Michael Mayer and John Talabot. On the A-side is Germany's Michael Mayer's epically inventive take on "Tuff Enuff." Less muscular than Lambkin's original, the remix softens things up by placing supple keys under the hardened exterior. The climax is an otherworldly listening experience that literally builds to take off.
On the flip, John Talabot's remix of "Take Em Up" starts like a laidback house party that builds just enough energy when it's relocated under disco lights. The haunting opening -- a swirling, ghostly blend of elliptical vocals and handclaps -- leads to a sonic journey that is as smooth as it is wholly entrancing.
The original versions of both are featured on Shit Robot’s debut album,
From The Cradle To The Rave, which is out now on DFA Records.

Premiered On A Heart Is A Spade!

Catch Them Live in NYC!

“If the sounds of Sigur Ros and MGMT were to softly collide, you’d have the ethereal waves of Quiet Lights.”
- NYLON
ambient indie-rock”
- Alternative Press
“… the kind of thing for anyone who was brought up on a healthy dose of Sonic Youth, My Bloody Valentine and Come”
- RCRD LBL
“… a little bit shoegaze, and a little bit of the soaring orchestral swoop of Sigur Ros, plus some of that latent kinetic energy in the Stars’ best songs."
- Flavorpill
Formed in Brooklyn in 2009 through a shared love of finding beauty in layers and textures,Quiet Lights is making music where themes drift in and out like phantoms of sound. The band’s new 7” features cover art by Maxi Schramm (Porcelain Raft) and the track “No More Canyons” with b-side “Break Trouble Wait.” The single was released digitally and on vinyl, February 15 on Eastern Seaboard/Old Flame Records.

Director Maxi Schramm (Porcelain Raft's 'Tip Of Your Tongue'and'Dragonfly') puts a reflective spin on Quiet Light's b-side, “Break Trouble Wait” with their new video. The song is in 2 parts, the first sways with a feeling that's both driving and meditative. The second more hypnotic and assertive as if part of an incantation. Check out the video where it premiered on A Heart Is A Spade or HERE. Feel free to post and share.

Phineas And The Lonely Leaves release second full length The Kids We Used To Be today!



Phineas and the Lonely Leaves is a band based out of Peekskill, NY. Their latest release, The Kids We Used To Be is out today and captures the essence of growing up in the Lower Hudson Valley of New York. With a driving rock force coupled with an Americana indie folk swing, Phineas and the Lonely Leaves has started to light up the music scene in and around New York.
Upcoming Shows:
2.24 - Peekskill, NY - Birdsall House
3.26 - Fishkill, NY - The Keltic House
3.31 - Peekskill, NY - Birdsall House
Phineas and the Lonely Leaves began as a solo project for singer/songwriter Timothy Feeney after playing in many bands in the New York & Boston Area. One of those bands, RedRoom, did a couple national tours and was acclaimed by indie kids and music bloggers the world over. After the band’s breakup, Tim moved to Boston to continue pursuing his musical career. During that time, his voice was heard on a couple national MTV commercials. After the breakup of yet another band, he decided to go solo and began recording heartfelt acoustic songs from the foot of his bed. The songs were compared to the lo-fi acoustic ballads of Bright Eyes & Ryan Adams. Through word of mouth, he started drawing thousands of people to his Myspace page daily. Feeney played shows all over the New York tri-state area and gained attention through his energetic and comedic performances.

After releasing his debut album Love What Lies, which was mostly recorded with studio musicians, Feeney went looking for full-time band members for live shows. He first went to long time friend and classmate Tim Cavanagh, who joined the group in 2008 on bass. Cavanagh quickly brought in college friend John Pye on drums. The trio worked well together, playing gigs all throughout 2008. When Feeney started writing songs for what would becomeThe Kids We Used To Be in late 2008, he soon realized he was going to need to fill out the band for the deep, rich and full sound he envisioned. In early 2009 the trio reached out to piano/keyboard player Paul Slater and a few months later found lead guitarist Michael Spinelli. The five members meshed together musically better than Feeney could have hoped and in the fall of 2009 they began recording The Kids We Used To Be just outside of Boston. Engineer and producer Adam Rourke had the challenge of bringing the raw and often wild live performing group into the studio to lay down the tracks. With expert skills, sharp attention to detail, and hours of patience, Rourke was able to give The Kids We Used To Be the strong and tight yet musically playful sound that all had hoped to achieve. Currently gigging in NYC and throughout Westchester, Phineas and the Lonely Leaves is a band you do not want to miss, look for them to be making waves on the shores of the east coast in the months to come.

WILD BEASTS’ NEW ALBUM, SMOTHER, OUT MAY 10, 2011 ON DOMINO


WILD BEASTS’ NEW ALBUM, SMOTHER, OUT MAY 10, 2011 ON DOMINO

Wild Beasts are set to release their much anticipated third album, Smother, on May 10, 2011 on Domino Records. The follow-up to the Mercury-nominated and critically acclaimed Two Dancers will be available on CD, LP and via digital download.

Born out of an intense six-week period of writing in East London and a month recording in remote Wales, Smother was co-produced by the Kendal four-piece with long term collaborator Richard Formby. An album of intense atmosphere, space and beguiling rhythm, Smother is formed of ten songs, which linger in the memory, each track pulsing with sensuality. Bold, textured and romantic,Smother is a deeply personal and immensely affecting record, which maintains the delicate and evocative form of beauty Wild Beasts have made their own. A truly impacting record from a unique and special band, Smother sees Wild Beasts continuing to brave their own way, outside the vicissitudes of fashion.

Architecture in Helsinki Debut New Track, "Contact High"

Click HERE to Stream “Contact High” by Architecture

in Helsinki and Click HERE to Download it

from Pitchfork!

Band’s First Single in Four Years to be Released

on Forthcoming Album, Moment Bends
Four years since the release of their last album, Architecture in Helsinki have just given the tantalizing initial taste of their new full-length with first single “Contact High.” The exuberant dance-pop track projects the band’s unique charm and is built around an irresistible chorus. Click HERE to stream the track at the band’s website or head over toPitchfork to grab the download. The band’s upcoming hook-laden, magnetic, and lush new album, Moment Bends will be released on May 3rd through V2/Cooperative Music USA/Downtown Records. It sounds like the record they’ve waited their whole lives to make, retaining the fizzing immediacy of its three predecessors and re-molding with a more sophisticated touch.
In large parts, Moment Bends is in dialogue with the dance floor, without being a slave to any particular rhythm. So, imagine a sound equal parts Italia ‘82, California ‘79, and Melbourne 2011, glued together with a dynamic bounce and a compelling romanticism.
Recorded over a 2 year period in the band's studio space, Buckingham Palace, Songwriter Cameron Bird says: “Moment Bends was all about being at one with our ideas, obsessed with popular music and falling in love with our hometown. We wanted to build a record to get lost in. A record that always feels exactly what you are feeling”. Architecture In Helsinki will be touring Europe, Australia, and North America – with US dates scheduled for June.
Architecture in Helsinki US Tour Dates:
06/01: Los Angeles, CA @ Henry Fonda Theater

The Head and the Heart Steal New York's Heart!!!

How we all didn't end up on-stage dancing and shaking tambourines with The Head and the Heart has zero to do with the band and audience, and everything to do with the height of the stage at Terminal 5. While their very first New York City show might have been better suited to Bell House or Mercury Lounge, they filled their opening slot for Dr. Dog at the cavernous T5 with bounce and grin-inducing harmonies.

To fill in the obligatory "for fans of" statement, easy comparisons are Fleet Foxes, Mumford & Sons, Guster, and Fleetwood Mac. The Head and the Heart are happily riding the recent comeback of vocal-driven pop/Americana, and they sound and look like they are enjoying it. This six-piece band, visually centered around the lovable Charity Rose Thielen (vocals, violin, percussion) and lead by frontmen Josiah Johnson and Jon Russell (vocals, guitars, percussion) brought a refreshing mix of poignant, story-telling lyrics and driven melodies to the giant room. The movement and joy on-stage was nonstop, sincere and infectious. Many of their songs center around the idea of movement: like "Ghosts," a nostalgic ride along the chorus "All my friends are talkin' about leavin', about leavin', but all my friends are sittin' in their graves" and "Cats and Dogs," their beautiful opener that declares "my roots are grown but I don’t know where they are." Strung throughout the set were songs about moving forward, being on your way, leaving, going and being gone. From what I saw and heard Friday night, I'd say the are indeed moving, on their way and going - go see The Head and the Heart live. I dare you not to give in to their sunny day preachings and grin while you dance. -tm
