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. Everything is woven together by a lean guitar-driven instrumental sound, perfectly framing Liam’s lyrical and vocal passions. 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.

Introspective “God Bless America” Released as Free MP3 to Celebrate
 
Lush without being pompous, subtle without being obtuse, and really rather lovely
The Guardian
 
‘…like a modern day The The’ - Mojo
 
He has the knack of turning what are no doubt everyday trials into songs with an epic thrust’ - Clash Magazine
 
A surprising discovery, Satellites’ second record is stuffed with complex motifs and effects, cleverly deployed with a rich vocal for an invigorating, expansive listen.
– Vinyl Today
 
In the summer of 2012, a completely unknown band called Satellites released an elaborately packaged, “limited edition” (only 500 copies) album simply entitled Satellites 01. The album, available only in the UK, garnered rave reviews, winding up #16 on Rough Trade’s “Best Albums of 2012” that year.
 
Satellites 02 followed soon after, again released only in the UK, with gorgeous “bring back the beauty of the album” packaging, and again the critically acclaimed album wound up onRough Trade’s “Best Albums of 2013” charts.
 
Satellites is actually writer, singer, multi-instrumentalist and producer Johnny Vic, an Englishman living in Copenhagen, who has spent most of his professional life touring the world as a band member and musical director for other more famous artists.
 
Since their initial release both 01 and 02 have gained momentum. They became blogger gold in the UK, word of mouth successes that received write-ups from The GuardianMojo & Clash. This summer Vic is finally making his long-awaited jump across the pond, releasing 02 for an American audience. The American release will be available as a “producer’s cut,”featuring four more tracks than its UK counterpart.
 
To celebrate the release of Satellites 02 in the U.S., Vic is giving away “God Bless America,”his own introspective homage to our fine land. The song is written from the perspective of a foreigner spending a two-year stint living in the States. “I wrote the song one sleepless night in a hotel room somewhere in middle America,” he says. “I was channel hopping and the song is literally about what was on TV. Only in America would you see a guy selling a piece of cloth that he said had been blessed by Jesus and that, if purchased and kept about one’s person, would scare off the devil! Then there was a news article about some lonely kid who had gone on a gun rampage.  It’s not an anti-American song by any means. It’s more a song about how crazy the place is for someone coming from outside.“
 
Look for 02, out in the US, on August 19, 2014.

The album, appropriately named Question Bedtime, is made up entirely of songs based on fairy tales. Some of them will be familiar and some of them more obscure, since the stories hail from all over the globe. This release sees Front heading in an all-new direction, since it is an album meant for the entire family. The songs are clever and catchy enough that the whole family will be rapping along.
 
About the album, MC Frontalot muses, “Will this album succeed in becoming, eventually, the sentimental claptrap recalled dearly by the generation at hand? I’ve tried to record something that would fascinate the 11-year-old me. I hope that I would have recognized the clues in the narratives and labored to follow them, looked up the difficult words and annoyed adults by attempting them in my vocabulary. I think I would have looked back on the album over the course of my schooling, and discovered that I understood more and more of it, the way I did with Alice In Wonderland’s puzzle poems or The Muppet Show’s more mature jokes." 

He continues, "Maybe this is in some way a nerdcore record, because it was seeded by my time reading fairy tales in my middle school library. Maybe because we still read similar stories aloud to children, it is in some way a children’s record. But it is definitely a record aimed at a certain kind of inquisitive and enchantable mind, regardless of age or identity. I hope it finds them and connects with them."
 
“Much Chubbier,” is based on the Three Billy Goats Gruff and featuring Open Mike Eagle. The song is still being finalized, but a sneak peak premiered on AV Club.
 
MC Frontalot will be premiering more songs from Question Bedtime at the Fourth Annual Comic-Con Nerd-A-Thon which will be at The Merrow in San Diego, California on Friday July 25th. He will also be in attendance at San Diego Comic-Con at the Dumbrella booth on the convention floor.

Listen + Share: First Single “My Club”
 
Danish pop powerhouse The Asteroids Galaxy Tour, consisting of Lars Iversen & Mette Lindberg, have recently announced the release of their highly anticipated third studio album, Bring Us Together- set to drop September 16th via Hot Bus/Rough Trade! Having won audiences across the world over with their unique brand of deliciously fun & edgy pop, the Copenhagen duo will deliver eager fans & new listeners alike ten tracks of pure audio bliss.
 
Bring Us Together first single “My Club” is an instantly catchy pop masterpiece with a psychedelic vibe punctuated by pulsing club beats. Biting lyrics like “tonight, I’ll be the bullet in your gun” are laid atop smooth, melodic horn samples & killer percussion. For a taste of what to expect from the upcoming record, you can give “My Club” a spin HERE where it’s available to post & share!
 
Heavily inspired by the two years of non-stop promotional & touring madness (and subsequent sense of isolation) following their previous album, Bring Us Together finds the duo’s desire to explore new musical avenues greater than ever before. As Iversen elaborates,“We wanted to create a heavier and slightly darker atmosphere for this album. The sound is more processed, and less “manual” than before- with more weighting on repetitive beats, bass grooves, chopped-up loops, and a more laidback vocal style.” The result is a sound collage & pop symphony created from equal parts of chopped-up danceable beats, spaced-out synths & bright neon green pop hooks.
 
Immersed within the Copenhagen music scene, producer & multi-instrumentalist Iversen met Lindberg in 2007. The two would go on to record a debut EP (Around The Bend) & two studio albums, 2009’s Fruit & 2012’s follow-up Out of Frequency. They’ve quickly become one of Denmark’s most prominent musical success stories, selling out venues around the globe & acquiring fans worldwide in the process.
 
Stay tuned for more news from The Asteroids Galaxy Tour coming soon!

AND INTERVIEW AIRING TODAY

KCRW “MORNING BECOMES ECLECTIC” CONFIRMED FOR JULY 31FOLLOWED BY KCRW’S “COUNTRY IN THE CITY” CONCERT SERIES WITH WYNONNA JUDD
ON AUGUST 2 IN LOS ANGELES


Sounds Like: “If Kris Kristofferson and Loretta Lynn had a baby; raised her on Motown, Leslie Gore, and the Clash; then let her join an all-girl hotrod gang at 15 (not that she would have asked permission.)” – Rolling Stone/ 10 New Aritsts You Need To Know This July
 
“She's country by virtue of her places of origin as much as anything else; aside from a slight twang and a tendency toward wordplay, Lane just as readily resides in the worlds of rock 'n' roll, confessional singer-songwriters, and impeccably groomed girl-group throwbacks.” – NPR First Listen

 
Nikki Lane is thrilled to announce she will make her television debut on Conan Monday, August 4The Nashville-based musician, recently singled out in both Rolling Stone’ssummer and July “10 New Artists You Need To Know” features as well as a breaking artist print profile, will proceed the late night bow with a performance at KCRW’s “Country in the City” free all-ages outdoor concert series at Century Park in Century City, Calif.on Saturday, August 2 where she will perform alongside Wynonna Judd and The Big Noise in conjunction with the Annenberg Space for Photography’s newest exhibit,“Country: Portraits of an American Sound.” 
RSVP here: http://www.kcrw.com/events/country-in-the-city-2014-rsvp
 
Ahead of the concert, KCRW has invited Lane and her band to perform live on “Morning Becomes Eclectic” Thursday, July 31 and give a glimpse of what to expect for their big show. Yesterday, the chanteuse made her World Cafe debut where she played a rousing four-song set and had a conversation with host David Dye about music, fashion and their intersection.

Since Lane’s record, All Or Nothin’ (New West Records), produced by Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys, was released in May, she’s steadily been on the rise as her “bold, idiosyncatic sound” (NPR) has struck a big chord. The album has garnered raves from the press withSalon hailing it one of “the best of 2014 – so far,” Paste exclaiming she “defies convention,” and Bust calling her “nothing short of sensational, adding “Lane has the ability to effortlessly mix and showcase different genres through her skillful songwriting and artistry.” American Songwriter declared: “Lane is a firecracker, strutting her sweet, sultry yet spunky vocals over tight country rockers that exude a self-assurance –both sexual and artistic—on a dozen tracks that feed on the past but are in no way locked into it,” Boston Globe called the album “the sound of a strong woman asserting herself in music and not giving a damn how you feel about it,” and Elle said Lane “hits that sweet spot between country-music earnestness and muddy rock grit.” About a recent show, Hollywood Reporter remarked: “With echoes of Jackie DeShannon and Dusty Springfield, this emerging Queen of Outlaw Country made timlessness real.”

Lane is currently impacting at radio across a variety of formats. She’s been top 10 at non-comm for the last six weeks and is steadily climbingly at commercial Triple A radio. She was #1 on  the Americana radio chart for four consecutive weeks and was one of just five artists to reach the #1 spot this year.
 
Lane has been on the road since the album’s release, having most recently completed a headline tour and support runs with the Old 97’s and The Whigs. She will continue to tour extensively through the end of the year and will announce a tour soon. In October she will play both weekends of the Austin City Limits Music Festival and make her first trip to Australia for the Out on the Weekend Festival in Melbourne

Masa (Argentinian musician Didi Gutman, of Brazilian Girls, and Venezuelan producer Hector Castillo) have released their first music video for their debut album’s lead single, “Pinos.” This Spanish-language song is so catchy and wonderfully crafted that it’s hard not to nod your head along even if you don't understand the words. MORE» More»

“…"Pinos" and its accompanying video is so effortlessly cool, you wonder why these two haven't joined forces before.” – Refinery 29
 
Argentinian musician Didi Gutman (leader and founder of Brazilian Girls) and Venezuelan producer Hector Castillo (David BowieLou ReedRoger WatersBjorkPhilip Glass) created Masa by chance in New York City during the summer of 2010. The project is a culmination of friendship, mutual admiration, and shared professional experiences since Hector has produced for Didi’s Brazilian Girls.
 
The typical elements that characterize and define Gutman as an artist can be found in the music of Masa. Hector Castillo's contribution is seen in the refined and exquisite sensitivity of production. With electronic beats and textures, Masa define modernity, playing with imagery through the use of the Spanish language. Masa is something like a marriage between the Gorillaz and Soda Stereo.
 
Now they have finished mixing and mastering the recording of their first album, which will be released in 2014. Today they released their first music video for the album’s lead single, “Pinos.” The music video premiered on Refinery 29 and features Miho Hatori, one half of Cibo Matto. While the song is in Spanish, it is so catchy and wonderfully crafted that it’s hard not to nod your head along, even if you don’t know what he’s saying. An English version of the track has also been recorded and will be released as a bonus track on their record.
 
Keep on the lookout for more big things from Masa, including the release of their debut album!

Debut Album We Loved Her Dearly 
Out September 16 via Arts & Crafts


Lowell is like dynamite: ferocious, unrelenting, and determined – but not only when it comes to her music. Writing each song to empower not only herself, but also her listeners -- to challenge gender conventions and inspire freedom from social limitations. Lowell’s refreshingly rebellious approach is what stands her unique brand of sophisticated synth-infused pop apart from the rest. She brilliantly blends deliriously catchy melodies and feminist punk gender politics on her debut full-length record We Loved Her Dearly, set for release September 16 via Arts & Crafts!
 
To announce We Loved Hear Dearly, Lowell revealed the track "I Love You Money," with The New York Times’ T Magazinewhich features the rebellious singer’s signature yelps and howls. Today, we unleash the dd elle remix of “The Bells,” where the mysterious producer takes the shimmering synths and hook-laden chorus of the original to minimalistic lows and infectious highs. “The Bells” dd elle remix was revealed with Pigeons & Planes- check it out HERE, and we encourage you to post and share!
 
In addition to writing openly about topics like sexual abuse, rape, abortion, and women’s rights, Lowell boldly addresses the lack of LGBTQ rights in our society – as heard in the celebratory track “LGBT”. Taking a cue from the feminist-punk contemporaries that her messaging has often been compared to (Grimes, Beth Ditto), Lowell’s brand of pop conveys the urgency of her subject matter, but her melodies keep songs accessible, optimistic and fun.
 
“Lowell is No Ordinary Pop Chanteuse” – The New York Times, T Magazine
 
“..supercharges our summer with her saccharine single. Is it an anti-consumerist anthem or a pro-capitalist smash? Hey! Woo! Who cares!” – Rolling Stone
 
“There’s this Canadian misandrist cheerleader that I’m the most excited about. Her name is Lowell…does she want to make out with me or beat me up? I don’t care, whatever she wants from me I want to give it.” – NPR Music
 
"a dreamy pick-me-up that prepares you for romantic letdowns”  SPIN
 
“..keeps her peppy streak alive, and, with a healthy dose of serious lyricism, also exemplifies her ability to take on more complex subject matter.” – Consequence of Sound
