Upcoming Releases

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.

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

Nikki Lane is a Nashville-based South Carolina-bred songstress that as Garden and Gun exclaims "turns the vulnerable singer-songwriter stereotype on its ears."

For her hotly anticipated sophomore album, All Or Nothin', Lane has teamed up with producer Dan Auerbach (of the Black Keys) for a rousing collection of songs that spans genres and eras and exudes with Lane's characteristic attitude and Southern swagger. 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. In addition to attending SXSW next week, head below to check out her upcoming tour dates below with The Whigs and Old 97’s

 

 


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.

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.

“We’ve been fans since the beginning, just saying.”NYLON

“Hey, we can dig that.” - Pitchfork

Jena Malone and Lem Jay Ignacio, aka The Shoe, first met at a Christmas carol party at the Mandrake in Los Angeles, California in 2008. They ended up playing that night and meeting for the first time on stage. They performed “Walking in a Winter Wonderland” but with Jena singing completely in scat-style gibberish and Lem Jay musically not missing a beat. A unique musical friendship and language was born. 

Jena had built an instrument she called “The Shoe” which was simply an old steamer trunk she dollied around with a plethora of electronic instruments inside. She brought it over to Lem Jay's garage to jam soon after they met. Lem Jay, who is a pianist and music producer said “From that night, it seemed like she was always over and we were always free-styling, making up songs, playing abstract piano duets, psychotherapy rants and love spells. We'd stay up all night recording all our jams, sometimes we'd improvise complete songs from start to finish. I think we literally have over a hundred hours of nights like this. Since we did this so much, it was hard to know what it was, whether it was a band or an art project or just two friends constantly making music.” The band’s first EP, At Lem Jay's Garage, came out in 2009 under Jena’s label, There Was An Old Woman Records.

The Shoe’s sophomore effort, I’m Okay, also recorded in Lem Jay’s garage, beautifully captures the essence of today’s pop music. Malone, her voice sailing tenderly amongst Ignacio’s poignant arrangements, recites witty lyrics, resembling those of the grand songstresses Joni Mitchell or Rickie Lee Jones. The instrumentation, a Wurlitzer piano, an electric guitar, a bass and percussion, interweaves in the most handsome, yet minimalistic ways, borrowing elements from the fuzzy surf pop of the Beach Boys, the dreamy shoe gaze of Mazzy Star and the catchy melodies of Sara Bareilles’ classic pop songs.

Of this newest effort Jena says “This new record means so much more to me because I actually wanted to write songs. I wanted to craft them more than I had ever done. I love the art of freestyle, for me I always start there as a songwriter, but this record was different. I wanted to tell stories everyone could feel and understand, not just me.“

Jena Malone has been acting for over 19 years in independent and blockbuster films. Most recently seen in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and soon to be seen in Paul Thomas Anderson's film Inherent Vice. She has been making music for eight years and has self-released two albums as Jena Malone and her Bloodstains.

Lem Jay has made music with many different artists, including Zooey Deschanel and Charlyne Yi. He has composed music for brands such as Pokémon and Converse and for art projects at MOCA, LACMA, and The Hammer Museum.

Check out Jena on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon talking about The Shoe.

Founded in 2009 by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros singer Alex Ebert, Community Music has released albums from artists including Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Alexander, Soko and Aaron Embry.   Ebert's, All Is Lost (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) won the 2014 Golden Globe for Best Original Score.

Like Taylor Swift with indie cred, DWNTWN brings their sweeping wall of sound, complete with synths, banjos, handclaps, and singer Jamie Leffler’s ethereal voice.  Paste is equally as head over heels for the track, which premiered yesterday. (Click here to download/listen and share!)

“This is a song for my grandpa who passed away last year. He was the most loving man and I miss him everyday, but writing this song helped me come to terms with losing him. I hope it can relate to anyone who has lost someone special”, says Leffler.

People Magazine just featured the band’s “Till Tomorrow” as one of ten songs to soundtrack the desert road trip to Coachella, and also this week, Blackbird Blackbird got a goose bump inducing remix from DWNTWN’s Robert Cepeda for his new single “There is Nowhere”, which premiered on Earmilk.  Haunting guitar and sparse drum kicks build to a harmonious vocal crescendo of Blackbird Blackbird's Mikey Maramag and DWNTWN's Jamie Leffler.

Shot in Denmark by filmmakers Cecile Evert and Simon Lundsgaard, they were inspired by Blue Foundation’s lyric, “… I can describe it all for you, if you got the nerves/guts to look into my eyes.”
 
The filmmakers enlisted Martin and Louise, a couple in real life, as well as in the video. “We chose them because it was clear to us that they have a very unique relationship. We saw a certain chemistry between them. Their love for each other is very strong and unique, and we expected it to shine through the lens, which we think it did,” says Lundsgaard. He continues, "Sometimes you can be afraid of things that you can’t define or describe. But if you look beyond the surface you will find something you recognize in yourself. That is what this video is about."
 
Brooklyn-based electronic dream-pop duo Blue Foundation is made up of producer/singer Tobias Wilner and multi-instrumentalist Bo Rande. Best known for their songs “Eyes on Fire,” which appeared in the Twilight saga and was certified double platinum in the US, and “Sweep,” from Michael Mann’s Miami Vice, the band released their album In My Mind, I Am Free on their own Dead People’s Choice Records last year. The release was followed up in January 2013 by remix album In My Mind I Am Reconstructed, which is available viaiTunes and other digital retailers.
 

Over the past several years, Blue Foundation has expanded their audience, embracing both the underground and the alternative mainstream. Along with the Twilight Saga and Miami Vice, the band’s music has been featured in TV series The O.C., So You Think You Can Dance,CSI:Miami, and more. Stay tuned for more from Blue Foundation!

The multi-talented Jihae has been pouring her soul into on her upcoming release, Illusion of You (Fall, 2014). Now she has released a passionate music video for the album’s first single “Illusion of You,” on BUST, who raves: “mellow out and get lost in the dreamy, ethereal soundscapes of Jihae’s grayscale world.” MORE» More»

“’Illusion of You’ is a passionate, somber address that features Jihae’s polished, fierce vocals mourning the loss of a deceitful lover.” – BUST
 
Jihae is slinky and spacious and a little weird around the edges” – Pitchfork
 
A dark dream pop track with a sultry, Lana Del Rey-esque vocal”

“Jihae feels more like something I dreamed up than an actual person...[with] her androgynous voice and deadpan delivery that cuts right through you.” – MTV Iggy

South Korean born, New York by way of Nigeria, Sweden, and UK, the multi-talented Jihae has been pouring her soul into on her upcoming release, Illusion of You (Fall, 2014). Now she has released a passionate music video for the album’s first single “Illusion of You,” on BUST, who raves: “mellow out and get lost in the dreamy, ethereal soundscapes of Jihae’s grayscale world.” (Click here to view and share)
 
The music video connects seamlessly to the track’s theme, playing with contradictions, illusions and a poetic internal battle between fantasy and reality. Jihae’s face, painted to resemble the yin and the yang, a struggle for power in between darkness and light, shifts and shimmers to trick the eye, creating an ethereal, dreamlike quality to the work. More than just a music video, “Illusion of You” is a work of art.

Jihae’s upcoming album includes a track co-written with Leonard Cohen and Dave Stewart (Eurythmics), the latter of whom described Jihae as "Like Bowie whispering secrets to the Velvet Underground.”  Jihae has opened for Sonic YouthLou Reed, and has also collaborated with Michel GondryMarco Brambilla, among many other stellar artists. She is also extremely active with charities and raising awareness for many causes, performing at events for Willie Mae Rock Camp, Acumen, the United NationsHillary Clinton's 2012 Hours Against Hate, and others.
Jihae was recently a featured guest at DJ Spooky’s video launch party at La Mema/Culturehub at the Seoul Institute of the Arts.

Ethereal pop songstress Megan Bonnell released her debut full-length album Hunt and Chase in October last year via Nevado Records before heading off on tour across Europe and Canada. Hunt and Chase is a captivating ten-track journey filled with Megan’s smoky, sophisticated vocals atop subtly strummed guitar chords & oft-dark subject matter.
 
Hunt and Chase album cut “Stars” is a simultaneously raw & lush oeuvre that emphasizes Bonnell’s humble sophistication. The accompanying video, in which she is a dream-like, almost otherworldly figure in a regular city setting, is equally intriguing- adding fascinating layers to an already complex song. The “Stars” video premiered with PureVolume, and is available to post & share HERE.
