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

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!

1st Teaser Track “I Love You Money” Available Now

“Lowell is No Ordinary Pop Chanteuse” The New York Times, T Magazine

“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

"dream-pop princess" NYLON Magazine

“ …girls like Karen O and Beth Ditto have become icons of bad-gal pop. That's where Lowell comes in.” Refinery29

“…like Grimes having a dance off with Lykke Li. In a disco ball.”  VICE’s Noisey

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!

Lowell’s debut I Killed Sara V. EP garnered the attention of fans and critics alike- including NPR All Songs Considered, who hailed her as a new artist to watch at SXSW 2014. We recently revealed a video via VICE’s Noisey for previously shared cut “88,” a song filled with Lowell’s remarkable vocals that sear through erratic yet melodic percussion. The debut EP left fans eagerly wanting more and We Loved Her Dearly truly delivers.

To announce her debut album, Lowell's shared the track "I Love You Money", a feminist manifesto with echoing howls, driving bass and anthemic lyrics such as “you live in a man’s world, I live in my own world.” “I Love You Money” was revealed today with The New York Times’ T Magazine and the song is available to listen & share HERE!

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’s charmingly earnest yet raucous live show commands audiences to their feet. Fans in Toronto will have a chance to experience it live as she performance at the TIME Festival alongside Flume, Grimes, Majical Cloudz, Death Grips and more.

Stay tuned for more from Lowell coming soon!
