“WRAY are woozier and more majestic, with gently-gliding vocal melodies and a steadily-chugging rhythm that owes more to krautrock than it does punk or garage.” – Wondering Sound
 
“Guitar saturated, hazy noise pop (at one point I was reminded of the Yo La Tengo track“Sugarcube”) I think they’ll quickly gain a spot among Birmingham’s respected indie bands.”– You Hear This
 
Wondering Sound just introduced the “majestic” Wray to the masses. Teaming up with award-winning director Steve Ashlee, Wray created a visually stunning video for their stand-out track “Apacheria.” The music video is a perfect visual representation of a complicated, interesting, and dance worthy track.
 
Wray is David Brown, Blake Wimberly, and David Swatzell. Though they are new, their involvement in the music community starts over a decade ago with such bands as Last Flight InComradeNightmare Waterfall, and a handful of other projects you might not have had the chance to see if “punk rock” just isn’t your scene. But this project is something you don’t want to miss.
 
 
Their self-titled label release will drop July 15 on Communicating Vessels. It was recorded in their hometown of Birmingham, Alabama at Ol Elgante Studio. With mastermind engineerDaniel Farris (Man Or Astro-man?, St. Vincent, Polyphonic Spree, Verbena) at the helm, they managed to capture the atmospheric beauty that comes with every live show they play.
 
Wray isn’t afraid to revel in repetition, churning (like butter) confident, seamless grooves firmly in the tradition of NEU!, Faust, or Can. Their shimmering, headphone-ready tones owe much to Slowdive, My Bloody Valentine, and even The Cure, but without the crippling self-absorption of chillwave, dreampop, or whatever all the sad bastards are listening to this week. It's music for an audience, for a rock show. It's got a beat and you can dance to it. The band is Wray and the album is Wray and you can play it at a party and people will like it.
 
This summer, Wray will be touring the United States with surf rock legends Man or Astro-Man?

Announce FREE YOUR MIND Deluxe Version Out 7/22, Including 3 Previously Unreleased Tracks

 

“Meet Me In A House Of Love” Video,Nat’l Tour w/ Classixx + Storm Summer Festivals

 

Grammy-nominated Cut Copy have announced the release of a deluxe version of their latest album Free Your Mind, to coincide with a busy schedule of summer festivals and US tour dates with Classixx. It will be available at all digital retailers on July 22nd via by Loma Vista (N. America) and Modular (ROW).

 

The record, taking influence from the ability of Summers of Love tear down the walls of perception while creating a fantasy of what the next youth revolution might sound like, will be re-released with five additional tracks: “In These Arms of Love” and “Like Any Other Day” (previously only available as a US-only Record Store Day vinyl release), and three previously unheard songs – “Believers”, “Lights Shine On” and “I Wish the Sun Would Grow Today”. They were all recorded by the band in Australia and mixed by producer Dave Fridmann during the Free Your Mind sessions.

 

"The process for making Free Your Mind was very open ended with all of us in the band letting musical ideas emerge rather than going in with a strong vision or style,” says the band’s Dan Whitford. “So it was inevitable that some ideas - even some of our personal favourites - weren’t going to fit perfectly into the final track list once the album had begun to take shape. The deluxe version of Free Your Mind was an opportunity to let people listen to some of the weirder moments and our favourite b-sides from the album recording sessions."  

 

In celebration of the deluxe release, the band are delighted to share the video for album standout “Meet Me In A House of Love,” directed by fellow Australians Trouble Hands. Watch it HERE.

 

The band are blitzing Summer festivals in the next few months, having just finished ripping up Primavera and Bonnaroo on their way to appearances at Electric Forest, Lollapalooza, Canada’s Osheaga, Outside Lands, Portugal’s Parades de Coura, France’s Rock en Seine, Spain’s Sonorama, Swiss Openair and Mexico’s Hellow Fest.

Teaser Track “On My Mind” Leaked To Fans Earlier Today
 
Catch Him Performing LIVE at NYC’s 
Central Park SummerStage w/ Passenger, 8/10

Liam Bailey... fuses throwback soul, blues and dub.   I … fell in love with his sound.  I hope it moves you as much as it has moved me.” – Anthony Valadez, KCRW
 
Flying Buddha announces the release of Definitely NOW – the debut album from UK soul/rock singer Liam Bailey. The album will be available on August 19th 2014 and supported by a U.S. tour, which kicks off on August 10th at New York’s Central Park SummerStage.
 
Liam Bailey’s sonic stew contains a rich broth of ingredients. He sings with a raw expressiveness that has been compared to Bob Marley and Sam Cooke, yet his songwriting style is liable to reference post Punk bands like The Smiths and Oasis.

For an early taste of the album, Bailey leaked the lead teaser track “On My Mind” and to fans via socials. Listen to “On My Mind” streaming HERE and we encourage you to post and share.
 
The Nottingham, England native got his initial introduction to the music business via his friend, producer Salaam Remi. Remi introduced Bailey to the late Amy Winehouse, who was so impressed with his music that she signed Bailey to her Lioness Records imprint and recorded 2 EP’s with him – So Down Cold and 2AM Rough Tracks. Bailey has collaborated with a wide variety of artists including Rita Ora, Tom Odell and Shy FX. He co-wrote the Chase & Status hit “Blind Faith” which debuted in the top 5 of the UK Singles Chart.
 
Definitely NOW was recorded in New York, Miami and London. It was co-written and produced by Bailey, and Executive Produced by Flying Buddha label head and Executive VP of A&R Salaam Remi.

“One of the year’s very best albums…” – Rolling Stone

“Like most of his music, it’s simmered in vigorous wistfulness and cerebral irony.”
– New York Magazine

Tour Puts Two New Orleans Legends Together on the

Road for the First Time Ever

 

The Preservation Hall Jazz Band announced today that, for the first time, they will be touring the United States with their long-time friend and fellow New Orleans icon Allen Toussaint. The band, which bases out of the legendary French Quarter venue Preservation Hall, has performed around the world and toured with a diverse list of artists, from My Morning Jacket to The Blind Boys of Alabama, but, has never before toured America with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame-inducted singer, pianist, songwriter, and producer known for penning many New Orleans classics including “Southern Nights” and “Working in a Coal Mine.”

 

“After all these years of playing together in New Orleans and coming to the same festivals here and there around the world, it is amazing that we never hit the road as a package before” said Preservation Hall band leader Ben Jaffe.  “It was almost as if we’ve always just assumed it had already happened, and then one day it was like ‘Oh yeah, WE need to do this thing’ and the Oh Yeah! Tour was born.”

 

The Oh Yeah! Tour, which is produced by Columbia Artists Management LLC will be coming to performing arts centers around the country, as well as popular nightclubs like The Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, NY and the Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach, CA.  The tour starts at the Wharton Center for the Performing Arts in East Lansing, MI on Oct. 8th and ends on Nov. 29th at the Broad Stage in Santa Monica, CA (see full itinerary below).

 

Unlike many tour packages, where two artists tour together but perform their own shows, this tour will be a combined show, with lots of interaction between the two legends.  “I’ve been playing with the guys in Preservation Hall around New Orleans since the 1960’s, so I’m really excited to finally get out on the road and perform together with them every night on a tour,” said Mr. Toussaint, “we’re going to have a lot of fun, and so will the audience.”

THE GOLDEN AGE is the 4th and last video from Woodkid’s eponymously titled debut album. It is a beautiful and intense short film that explores the key moments in one young child’s formative years. MORE» More»

THE GOLDEN AGE is the 4th and last video from Woodkid’s eponymously titled debut album. Directed by Woodkid himself, real name Yoann Lemoine, the video includes a collaboration with British classical composer Max Richter. It is a beautiful and intense short film that explores the key moments in one young child’s formative years.
 
The video follows a series of masterpieces, all directed by Lemoine. Each video drew significant critical praise and millions of views on YouTube , securing Lemoine’s extreme talent of storytelling, both in song and visuals.
 
As Lemoine explains: 
“The Golden Age is the last single and video for my first album.
 
Throughout the process of directing videos for this story, I slowly removed all digital and post-production layers of my work to finally create this piece. It is somehow a postcard from my childhood, with memories and emotions from the countryside assembled together in a long, free, mellow piece. It's about the child trapped inside, the haunting memories, the beautiful and the dark ones. I wanted the camera work and acting direction to be very organic and carnal, in opposition to the digital, rigid and super-composed aspects of the previous videos. That's why we decided to shoot everything handheld, without any mechanical movement and with no post-production. In that way, I would say this video is very different from the other ones.
 
It all started when I bought an original print by my favorite photographer, William Gedney, friend and contemporary of Lee and Maria Friedlander, who shot families in rural America in the sixties. I decided that this piece would pay tribute to the beauty of his work and the way he shoots boys and men in their environment, to the sensuality of his eye, which describes so well what I felt for other boys when I was younger.
 
In order to extend the song and create the right mood for this piece, I collaborated with composer Max Richter. He extended and re-recorded his piece ‘Embers’ to adapt it to the pace and tonality of ‘The Golden Age.’ Together, we created this very free ‘hybrid’ edit of the track, which tells so much about the pace of never ending childhood summers.
 
In a way, this piece is a final goodbye to four years of work and tour for this album.“
 
- Woodkid
 
The French musician, songwriter, director, photographer and designer has made a huge impact both commercially and critically with his debut album The Golden Age by selling over 400,000 units and attracting close to 65 million views for his 3 video clips.
He has collaborated with Grammy Award winners and nominees Pharell Williams andKendrick Lamar as well as the multi Academy Award winning Hans Zimmer.
His audiovisual live performance at the 2014 Coachella was named “Most Eye-Popping Set” by Rolling Stone magazine.
  
 
 “The Golden Age” by Woodkid
is available globally through Green United Music/Universal Music Germany.
