Upcoming Releases

15026-fronty

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.

Kris Menace is well known for being an in-demand producer and remixer working with the likes of Depeche ModeLCD SoundsystemRoyksopp, Lana Del Rey amongst others, while his musical partner, Simon Lord, has a resume just as impressive. Simon was a member of Simian, with whom he won Best Music Video at the MTV European VMAs, Black Ghosts, and provided the vocals for the incredibly famous “We Are Your Friends,” which Justice remixed.
 
Now the two masterminds have teamed up for a brand new musical project, simply dubbed Menace & Lord, bringing together Kris's unique flair for electronic production and Simon's individual voice and knack for a pop hook, making a feel good album with panoramic scope.
 
The pair first started working together on a collaboration for Kris' 'Features' album. The resulting track was something special and seemed like the first step on an exciting new path. The music kept flowing and after bonding over late studio nights, the pair decided to become
'Menace & Lord'.
 
 
Menace & Lord will release their debut album on 15th of September 2014.  Entitled "Sun, Moon and Stars", it will be followed up with artistic and beautiful music videos.

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!

NYC’s The Knocks are a distinctly 21st century duo, declared by NME as one of the “20 hottest producers in music” & by The Guardian as “cred-pop’s answers to The Neptunes.” Now one of the most buzzed-about duos on the electronic circuit, the blog world darlings recently announced the release of their debut full-length album, Endisco- set to drop October 7th. Endisco will feature collaborations with a wide range of superstar talent, including St. Lucia, Wes Miles (Ra Ra Riot), Adeline Michele (Escort), X Ambassadors, Sneaky Sound System & more.

Endisco album single “Classic” ft. Powers is a funk-infused dance anthem punctuated with The Knocks’ signature party-starting guitar loops, infectious keys & sultry vocals- the consummate summer anthem. For a taste of what to expect from the upcoming record, fans can give “Classic” a spin where it premiered on VICE’s Noisey, or HERE where it’s available to post & share!

Having spent the last three years jet-setting around the globe for DJ gig, sharing stages with Grouplove, M.I.A., Chromeo & others, the duo will be on the road once again this summer- taking their ecstatic live show to college towns across the country as well as stints at New York’s Full Moon & Montreal’s ÎleSoniq festivals.

The Knocks consists of B-Roc & J-Patt, who moved in together after dropping out of music school in NYC. J-Patt’s background in soul & funk, and B-Roc’s years spent immersed in trip-hop & hip-hop beats, has allowed them to quickly ascend the production ranks. Initially gaining recognition for their remixes for artists including HAIM, Santigold, Foster the People, Two Door Cinema Club, Ellie Goulding & more, they eventually found themselves experimenting with sounds of their own. The guys didn’t think much would come of a nearly five-minute track they’d been building, all tense beats & tingling synths: “it kind of started out as a joke,” stated B-Roc. “But people were liking that more than the stuff we produced for other people. It felt right.” The duo quickly discovered a newfound freedom in creating their own songs: “it’s better because it’s our own, and we can do whatever we want with it,” explained J-Patt. 

Stay tuned for more news from The Knocks coming soon!

Menace & Lord release their new music video for the title track of their debut album 'Sun, Moon & Stars, Pt. 1,' out September 15, with Vevo and Vibe. MORE» More»

“We wanted to make a collection of songs that are a soundtrack to the times you lose yourself in the moment…whether it's in the club, in the sunshine with friends or staring up into the night sky.” – Menace & Lord
 
Each has individually enjoyed a colorful, successful career within the electronic music industry, but now Kris Menace and Simon Lord have teamed up for an all-new music project simply dubbed Menace & Lord.
 
In step with their new direction, the pair will release an album on September 15th, and the debut single from the album is the title track ‘Sun, Moon & Stars, Pt. 1’.  The music video for the track premieres today on Vibe (http://www.vibe.com/article/video-premiere-menace-lord-sun-moon-stars) and Vevo (http://vevo.ly/0Fo7GW)
 
The music video was directed by Rolling Stone Awarded Meeto Worre Kronborg Grevsen from Denmark who says: “When i was first presented to Menace & Lord I was completely astonished by the feeling of the tracks. For me, they had a sense of magic like the feeling of being in love for the first time. A feeling of the universe coming together around you and a feeling of coexisting with another person and daydreaming. We wanted to create a love story, and we quickly decided to let the video universe evolve over more than one video to get deeper sense of the story and atmosphere.  It’s always a task to make a story fit within a music video, because making a music video is to the create a visual emotion to the music, and often a story is told by words and within a narrative structure that has to make sense somehow.  But I think we found a way to create a sense of a story without making it depend on words and the narrative structure. You should feel the videos rather than understanding it perfectly. And I love the chemistry between the actors.”
 
This is just the first video of three that will be released for the debut Album ‘Sun, Moon and Stars’. The next two music videos are just as visually breathtaking as this one, and will be released in the coming months.
 
Again, from Meeto, “‘Sun, Moon & Stars, Pt. 1’ is the initial video of the trilogy and it should set the the atmosphere for all three.  It’s centered around the first meeting and the magic of feeling another person for the first time.  It’s a happy beginning but we put some drops of melancholy in there as well. The sense of nothing last for ever.”
 
Menace & Lord are defining an all-new path in the electronic music scene so keep an ear out for the revolution.

Satellites release 'Wasteland' remixes via Popmatters, announces US dates in Los Angeles and New York. New album '02' out October 7 via Hoopmusic. MORE» More»

PopMatters premiered three complex remixes of art-folk artist Satellites’ stunning track, ‘Wasteland’. The set of remixes includes a remix from NinjaTune’s The Invisible. Explaining to PopMatters,  “These versions of ‘Wasteland’ are more apocalyptic and baron than the original. But they still make me want to dance. The Invisible remix is all about building melodic tension. The Clas Tuuth remix strips the production right back to something beautifully skeletal. And the Vestrrbother remix turns up and stretches the beats from the original into an epic bit of Balaeric.”
 
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.
 
He has released his first two full lengths, 01 and 02, in his native England. After their releases they gained massive momentum; becoming blogger gold in the UK, word of mouth successes that received write-ups from The GuardianMojo, and Clash.
 
This year, 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. It will be available in the states on October 7th.
 
live show that is not to be missed, Satellites will be playing dates in both New York and LA next month.
 
LA: Sept 10 @ Hotel Café,
NYC: Sept 23 @ Rockwood Music Hall

Introspective “God Bless America” Released as Free MP3 to Celebrate
 
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 on Rough 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 October 7, 2014.
