My Holding Hand Is Empty” MP3 Available Now!

“…a mesmerizing singer/songwriter who should not be missed.” – CMJ

“ …the album runs from upbeat tracks with horns and harmonies to moments of sweet, wistful solitude.” – Acoustic Guitar

“When you see a Patrick Park show, the music is the star. And in a music business over saturated with pre-packaged studio acts, an artist like Patrick Park is a welcome breath of fresh air.” PopMatters

Following his We Fall Out Of Touch EP this past fall, critically acclaimed singer-songwriter Patrick Park today announces the release of his fourth full-length album, Love Like Swords, on April 22. Mixed & produced by Patrick Park and Dave Trumfio (Wilco, OK Go,Built To Spill) & with contributions from Jenny Lee Lindberg (Warpaint) among others, the LP finds Los Angeles-based Patrick taking an introspective yet innovative approach to his solo acoustic style.

Love Like Swords ebbs & flows through a variety of styles, with Patrick’s pure vocal poetry captivating the listener. LP cut “Dust and Mud” is an upbeat track accented by horns, bright harmonies & stomping drums. “Let’s Go” tells the tale of a desperate getaway with sparse guitar twangs, handclaps & drum beats rolling like tumbleweeds along the desert road. Title track “Love Like Swords” is an emotive track of booming percussion amidst intricate guitar riffs.

“My Holding Hand Is Empty” slows the pace to folky finger-picking & sparking strings, sitting octaves above Park’s deep bass vocals. The “My Holding Hand Is Empty” MP3 premiered today with Acoustic Guitar and is available to post & share HERE.

Since his first offering over a decade ago, Patrick Park has toured, written & recorded heavily, developing a sturdy & loyal following. Having joined My Morning Jacket, Beth Orton & David Grey on the road among many others, he prides himself on creating music that speaks for itself. “Musically, it's direct and pure, and there's nothing to hide behind, no way to cop out,” he says of performing solo. Park will launch a lengthy national tour with stops in NYCPhiladelphiaNashvilleAtlanta and more. A complete list of tour dates below.

First Single, “Til Tomorrow, Premiered on USA Today’s "Pop Candy" and Shortlist Magazine 
DWNTWN signs with Jullian Records and will be releasing their new self-titled EP on April 29.  This marks the first EP release through a label for the LA based indie-pop band.
 
“Thanks to Jullian Records we now have the opportunity to share our music like never before. It feels great knowing we are apart of a team who all truly believe in our music, and are working everyday to expand our reach”, says Jamie Leffler of DWNTWN.
 
In celebration of the announcement, DWNTWN debuted the first track, “Till Tomorrow from their forthcoming self-titled EP, on USA Today’s Pop Candy. “We need all the sunshine we can get right now, and DWNTWN has it in spades,” Pop Candy glows.
 
French tastemaker label, Kitsuné, first put DWNTWN on the map in 2012 after they debuted the band’s first single “See My Eyes”, and in 2013 they included a collaboration track (withGiraffage and Jhameel), “Move Me” on another compilation album.  Both songs reached #2 on Hype Machine’s popular chart.
 
DWNTWN first formed in 2010 when Jamie Leffler and Robert Cepeda, both dealing with bummer breakups (Jamie, from Robert’s brother!), spent their weekends getting drunk and writing depressing folk songs, which they recorded onto their iPhone.
 
It wasn’t long before Jamie and Robert recovered from their heartbreak and transformed those early demos into full-fledged, indie-pop songs, which were all written and produced themselves.
 
While their last EP, The Red Room, was very synth heavy and reminiscent of the Drive soundtrack, their forthcoming EP has a lot more guitars and live instrumentation.  Their new single “Til Tomorrow” feels more closely related to the Garden State soundtrack.
 
Over the years, the band has expanded live from a duo, into a trio, and now fills the stage as a foursome.  Having just completed a successful LA residency with over 400 people in attendance each week, and having toured previously with some heavy hitters, Capital Cities and Gold Fields, DWNTWN is excited to get on the road again next month with El Ten Eleven.  They will also be playing in select markets on both coasts during release week.
 
Tour Dates with El Ten Eleven:

3.12 @ Strummers, Fresno, CA
3.13 @ Belly Up Tavern, Solana Beach, CA
3.14 @ Constellation Room, Santa Ana, CA
3.15 @ SLO Brew, San Luis Obispo, CA

"Nikki Lane breaks stereotypes on her Dan Auerbach-produced second album All Or Nothin'" - Rolling Stone

Courtesy of Rolling Stone, listen and share the track “Right Time” HERE.

Due out May 6th on the esteemed New West Records where Nikki is now label mates with the likes of Steve Earle, The Whigs, Robert Ellis and Patty Griffin, All Or Nothin' is a confident statement from one of Nashville's most exciting young talents.

11790-tori_20amos_20unrepentant_20geraldines_20cover

February 19, 2014 (New York, New York) -- Tori Amos is set to release her brand new studio album, Unrepentant Geraldines, May 13th in the U.S. on Mercury Classics/Universal Music Classics. Unrepentant Geraldines is pop/rock in both content and feel and is a change in pace from Amos’ most recent releases.  The album is both one step further in the evolution of one of the most successful and influential artists of her generation, and a return to the inspiring and personal music that Amos is known for all around the world.

Read more about Unrepentant Geraldines from Tori Amos on Rolling Stone.

Tori Amos’ worldwide tour kicks off in May, with U.S. dates now announced for July and August (see attached). Fans will have exclusive access to a ticket pre-sale before the general public on-sale dates by pre-ordering Unrepentant Geraldines on-line. Once a pre-order for the album is placed through http://myplaydirect.com/tori-amos, individuals will later receive a code to grant them access to pre-sales tickets for the U.S. show of their choice.

Unrepentant Geraldines is her 14th studio recording, and a return to her core identity as a creator of contemporary songs, following a series of more classically-inspired and innovative musical projects of the last four years. These have included the seasonal collection Midwinter Graces, the classically influenced Night of Hunters, and Gold Dust, a collection of orchestral re-workings of songs from across her career. Released in October 2012 Gold Dust included “Flavor,” which was remixed by the late DJ Peter Rauhofer and peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Club Dance Chart in February 2013.  

Amos recently also launched her most ambitious project to date as a composer, along with book writer Samuel Adamson, with the musical The Light Princes, which premiered at London's National Theatre in fall of 2013.

Tori Amos has sold over 12 million albums, has played over a thousand shows and has won numerous awards. Since the release of her debut album Little Earthquakes 21 years ago in 1992 where she pushed boundaries with her confessional style of songwriting, Amos continues to be adored, picking up new fans along the way, romanced by her messages of empowerment, tenderness, acerbic assertiveness, and of course her utterly peerless sound.

A pioneer across multiple platforms, Tori Amos was the first major label artist to offer a single for download. She has had her songs turned into graphic novels and has produced groundbreaking videos throughout her career. Ms. Amos is also a noted humanitarian and co-founder of RAINN (Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network), which is the United States’ largest anti-sexual assault organization.

Album Pre-Order Featuring Limited Edition Music, Merch and Experiences

Available Now on Meshell.com

 

Summer Tour Dates Announced, More Coming Soon!

 

Mercurial and masterful, Meshell Ndegeocello has survived the best and worst of what a career in music has to offer. She has eschewed genre for originality, celebrity for longevity, and musicals trends for musical truths. She has lived through the boom and bust of the industry and emerged just as she entered - unequivocally herself. Fans have come to expect the unexpected from Meshell, and faithfully followed her on sojourns into soul, spoken word, R&B, jazz, hip-hop, rock, all bound by a lyrical, spiritual search for love, justice, respect, resolution, and happiness.

Groove driven, infectiously melodic and lyrically meditative, Meshell’s latest album, Comet, Come To Me, finds her returning to the same well of creativity that launched her career. Her 11th release, it is possibly a culmination of all previous work: lush, vocal, seeking, wise, collaborative, and driven by the signature bounce and precise pocket of Ndegeocello on bass. The album features special guests Shara Worden (My Brightest Diamond) and Doyle Bramhall, along with long-time collaborators Christopher Bruce (guitar) and Jebin Bruni (keys), and Earl Harvin on drums. Assured of her place as an authentic musical thinker and an uncompromising artist, Comet continues to discover, examine, and explore all that music has to offer her and how she can return the gift.

Comet, Come To Me was a little labor but a lot of love. It was made with my favorite collaborators, and it felt good to channel the sounds in my mind after having Nina in residence for a while,” says Meshell, referencing her last album, a tribute to Nina Simone. The collaborative process that comes with making an album especially inspires her. “When I’m writing songs and recording the demos, I’m having my own awesome experience in my attic, or on a plane, or in a hotel room, just making my beats on my laptop. Then I get together with these people that I have an intimate musical relationship with, and we bring the songs to life.”

In addition to the twelve new tracks on Comet, Come to Me (15 including the bonus tracks available on her website), fans of Meshell’s will no doubt be intrigued by her cover of Whodini’s “Friends”, a seminal hip-hop track originally released in 1984. Commenting on her inspiration for choosing this song, Meshell explains: “I play with a lot of people who play improvisational music and jazz, and I thought it would be fun to take something that they might think of as easy or straight-forward, and do something different with it. I also like how language is morphing, and 'friends' is such a malleable word, I don't even know what it means anymore.”

In addition to her own recording, Meshell has been expanding her repertoire as a producer, producing three albums in the past year: British/Trinidadian poet and musician Anthony Joseph's new album, Time; Jason Moran's Fats Waller Tribute, All Rise: A Joyful Elegy For Fats Waller (due Sept 2014); and a new album by Grammy-nominated Ruthie Foster, also set for release this fall.

For more information on the schedule of the event, give us a shout!

Heralded by publications such as SPIN, CMJ and Earmilk, Walking Shapes was formed by way of mountains, and through the tides of the city.

“Chant master of American Yoga” – The New York Times

 Layering traditional Hindu kirtan with instantly accessible melodies and modern instrumentation, Grammy Nominee Krishna Das has been called yoga’s “rock star.” With a remarkably soulful voice that touches the deepest chord in even the most casual listener, Krishna Das – known to friends, family, and fans as simply KD – has taken the call-and-response chanting out of yoga centers and into concert halls, becoming a worldwide icon and the best-selling American chant artist of all time.

With the release of his 14th album, Kirtan Wallah—one who sings kirtan, KD offers a westward-leaning album, fully embracing his American roots in rock and country and yet embodying the spirit of deeply devotional Indian chants - the heart of this latest album is still in the Names that he’s singing.

KD spent the late ‘60’s traveling across the country as a student of Ram Dass, and in August 1970, he finally made the journey to India, which led him to Ram Dass’ own beloved guru, Neem Karoli Baba, known to most as Maharaj-ji.

Given the name Krishna Das, KD began to chant as part of following the path of Bhakti yoga – the yoga of devotion. After two and a half years with Maharaj-ji, returned to USA - alas, six months after his return, word came that Maharaj-ji had died.

He took solace in music, finding peace and strength in both his Bhakti yoga practice as well as in such heroes as Ray Charles, Van Morrison, Steely Dan, and Bruce Springsteen (whom he laughingly calls “the Bodhisattva of New Jersey”). KD also co-founded Triloka Records, a California-based label specializing in world music, releasing such artists as Jai Uttal, sarod virtuoso Ali Akbar Khan, and legendary jazz musician/composer Jackie McLean.

In 1994, KD started leading chant at Jivamukti Yoga Center, NYC, with an ever-growing audience of yoga students that has led him to chant with people all around the world.

In February 2013, Krishna Das performed at the Grammy awards in Los Angeles, CA streamed online to millions of viewers. The award-winning film ‘One Track Heart: The Story of Krishna Das’ has been in over 100 US cities, over 10 countries worldwide and is available on DVD everywhere, and his album Live Ananda (released January 2012) was nominated for a Grammy in the Best New Age album category.

 “The chanting just hits you and you want to be a part of it,” KD promises. “That’s the point of this whole thing. That’ s what cuts through all the ‘stuff’. You get lit up. Y ou don’t have to know what it means.”

Winter fell,” the hauntingly beautiful second offspring of Walking Shapes’ visual album Taka Come On, premieres with Village Voice today. The video reflects the state of emotional flux, feeling overwhelmed and is depicted by two masked dancers in a confined space.

“The song ‘Winter fell’ came about during a ‘polar vortex,’” singer Nathaniel Hoho tells Village Voice, who deems the tune “much warmer than its subject matter.” It’s a song about being forced to take a break, reflecting and coming to terms with one’s inner demons, while simultaneously embracing the good things and people in life.
