The psych-pop girls of Snow Angel have announced the release of their debut 7” So Sick So Cool out 4/22. Doused with hard-hitting drums, recorders, omnichord, guitar, keys and electric sitar turned all the way up to 11, they will rock the emotional dust off your musical shelf.
Snow Angel’s creative force, Gabby La La, made a major splash with her Les Claypoolproduced solo album, "Be Careful What You Wish For". Touring internationally as a member of Claypool’s band, Gabby became known for her virtuosity on the sitar and penetrating stage presence. She created her second album, "I Know You Know I Know" using a Nintendo DS Lite overdubbed with sitar, ukulele, and theremin.
"So Sick So Cool" is the first release from Snow Angel.  The title track features the drumming of Ian Vanek from Brooklyn art-punk duo Japanther. The B side, "We Are Stars" is produced by Boots Riley of The Coup. Tied together with an addictive dose of electric sitar, recorders, and girl power, this double A-side single is sure to put Snow Angel on the musical map.
“So Sick So Cool” track premiered with Pure Volume and we encourage you to post and share!
Both songs on this double A-side single are also represented in video form.  "So Sick So Cool" is a rainbow, patty cake, cheer party of awesome-ness. The video was directed by Kung Fu comedy action genius, Pete Lee. The cinematography was done by or Mark Kohr, who is best known for his directing work with Green Day, Primus and Alanis Morrisette. The video for "We Are Stars" was directed by Nanako Fukui. These visual representations will give the world their first glimpse into the world of Snow Angel.
A twelve year veteran of the Ali Akbar College of Music, Gabby La La graduated from Cal Arts, and was one of the founding members of Dakah Hip Hop Orchestra. Since then she has collaborated with Les Claypool, Bob Weir, Snoop Dogg, Macy Gray, The Coup, Grace Potter, Bernie Worrell, Prince Paul and P-Funk, among many others. Snow Angel is the newest adventure on her journey.

19119 chui 20wan 20by 20vbai

Chui Wan (吹万) is a four-piece experimental psychedelic rock band from Beijing, China. They get their name from Daoist philosopher Zhuangzi's Qi Wu Lun (齐物论), a mystical work on inner sageliness and outer kingliness. Zhuangzi writes: "谓风吹万窍,发出各种音响" - "When the wind blows, every sound may be heard therein."
Inspired by this concept of seeking the infinite from the mundane, the core of Chui Wan's sound is formed by the improvisational compositions of multi-instrumentalist Yan Yulongand guitarist Liu Xinyu. Their lush arrangements for guitar, keyboard, viola, other assorted instruments, and random sound samples often eschew reliable melodies and vocal harmonies in favor of occasional passages of minimal drone or maximal sonic layerings. Bassist Wu Qiong and drummer Li Zichao provide a stable ground floor from which the band can continually float away, like a sound half-heard and soon gone on a gust of wind.
In 2012, Chui Wan released their debut album, White Night, on Maybe Mars, China’s top indie label. White Night was an instant critical success, and gained Chui Wan recognition and a rabid following throughout the China. Lauded as an “impressive, strikingly original debut” by Time Out Beijing and a “sterling effort” by China’s Global Times,White Night was released on a tour with New York kindred spirits Psychic Ills (Sacred Bones Records), which launched Chui Wan into the national spotlight, placing them on stage in front of packed houses in Beijing, Hangzhou, Suzhou, Kunshan, Shanghai, Wuhan, Guangzhou, Hong Kong, and Macau.
Soon after its release, MTV Iggy touted Chui Wan's debut album as a “psychedelic masterpiece” and declared that “the world needs to hear this noise now.” Indeed, foreign interest in the the band started grow. In March 2013, they were invited to perform at Helsinki’s NiuBi Festival, accompanied by shows across Scandinavia and France.
When they weren’t performing as Chui Wan, the members kept busy with solo performances and side projects. Chui Wan's core members have always been central members of Beijing's dynamic experimental music scene, leading the band to be named by Time Out Beijing as “the hardest working band in psychedelia.” In 2014, that same publication dubbed frontman Yan Yulong among the “ten Beijingers making a mark in the city” and called him “one of the leading lights of Beijing’s experimental music scene."
In October 2014, Chui Wan returned to Scandinavia for a second appearance at Helsinki’s NiuBi Festival — where they played to excited crowds from the pervious year — and added new fans to their base with additional stops in Amsterdam, Copenhagen, and Talin. Upon returning to cold Beijing, they hunkered down in the studio to record their sophomore, self-titled release with respected Beijing producer Yang Fan. SmartBeijing.com, after an early listening, called Chui Wan "a more lush, dense, musical offering than their 2012 debut."
Ahead of the projected album release date of May 1, Chui Wan is gearing up for Spring tours across North America and Asia, and a third Europe in the Fall.  Dates below.

On May 4th, 2015 My Morning Jacket are set to return with their seventh full-length album,The Waterfall via ATO Records/Capitol Records. This release will mark the band’s first on Capitol Records. Recorded in Stinson Beach CA, The Waterfall is the follow-up to the GRAMMY®-nominated Circuital, which was ranked among 2011’s best albums by publications such as Rolling Stone, Paste, MOJO, and Uncut.
Today, the Louisville quintet reveal the new album’s cover art, full track list, and the lead single, “Big Decisions”, as well as launch a pre-order for the new album via its 
official websiteiTunes and Amazon. Fans who preorder The Waterfall will receive an instant download of "Big Decisions,” which is available for streaming today via VEVOSpotify, and all other digital services.
My Morning Jacket also announce an extensive United States tour in support of the new album, which will see them headline Governors Ball and Bonnaroo before embarking on a nationwide headlining tour in mid-May, followed by dates in Europe. Fan club pre-sale will be going live on March 9 and the tickets will be available for general sale on March 13. (See full list of tour dates below). 

My Morning Jacket arrived at Northern California’s Stinson Beach in late 2013 thinking only about making an album. The band was not prepared to be seduced. But within a couple of days, Jim James, Tom Blankenship, Patrick Hallahan, Carl Broemel and Bo Kosterwere in love with Panoramic House, a studio perched on a hillside overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The natural beauty of the surrounding landscape, located only about a half hour north of the Golden Gate Bridge, combined with the almost mystical serenity flooded them with a charged sense of possibilities.

“For me, every record has the spirit of where we made it,” explains singer, guitarist, and primary songwriter Jim James. “Stinson Beach was so psychedelic and focused. It was almost like we lived on our own little moon out there. It feels like you’re up in the sky.”
On the new release there are moments that reach back to early albums such as 2001’s At Dawn and 2003’s It Still Moves, the record that gave the band a much broader audience. But the experimentation that marked 2004’s Z, 2008’s Evil Urges and James’ 2013 solo album, Regions of Light and Sound of God is clearly in effect.

The Waterfall sounds like history and decades colliding, like a record made by fervent music fans in search of that tingle up the spine. Inveterate music geeks will hear echoes of vintage rock and pop as MMJ continues to honor its influences without aping any of them;The Waterfall sounds like nothing else but also warmly familiar.

 “That’s kind of the sound of this record, and my life, the sound of the page turning and not being sure what’s coming next,” said James.

 “The freedom we went into this record with took a lot of the pressure off, as far as what to do and how to do it,” Hallahan added. “The mantra was anything goes, no stone unturned, it’ll be done when it’s done.”

The band recorded The Waterfall by teaming up again with producer/engineer Tucker Martine (The Decemberists, Modest Mouse, Neko Case), who also worked with My Morning Jacket on Circuital. In addition to the Stinson Beach sessions, they recorded at Martine’s Portland, OR studio Flora and at Ratterman’s La La Land studio in Louisville.

But in the end, it all circled back to Stinson Beach.

“Out of all the places we’ve recorded, I think that place might have informed the record on a spiritual level more than any other,” adds Koster. “If you listen to ‘Like A River,’ it just sounds like Stinson Beach.”

The Waterfall is the latest in a career-spanning string of success beginning with the band’s 1999 debut album The Tennessee Fire and including 2008's Evil Urges and 2011's Circuitalwhich each received GRAMMY ® nominations - the latter debuting at #5 on the Billboard 200 chart.

Downtown Boys debut LP Full Communism is a thrashing record of songs about smashing the prison-industrial complex, racism, queerphobia, capitalism, fascism, boredom, and all things people use to try to close our minds, eyes and hearts. Released May 5th on Don Giovanni Records, the band will take their ferocious live show on the road with labelmates Screaming Females and make a stop in Austin during SXSW.
Full Communism comes at a current critical moment in the struggle for justice being fought in the US and throughout the world. It is set to a commanding tempo programmed make you move regardless of whether singer Victoria Ruiz is singing or shouting. “Wave Of History” opens with the ominous cry of a horn line, deciding this generation has the power to create change, “Break A Few Eggs,” opens with punk-infused guitars and saxophones and only two lines of lyrics that need little interpretation. “Monstro” is a feminist anthem, in your face in the best way with an incredibly infectious sax line.

Downtown Boys are a bilingual political sax punk party from Providence, RI. Impossible to categorize and comprised of a formidable voice, two saxophones, guitar, bass and drums, their scathing energy is palpable in every room they take hold of. Shifting from English to Spanish, punk to rock to jazz to pure fun, their record is sure to open eyes, rattle ribs and bring dancefloors to their knees.

Hey folks - Thomas from Surfer Blood has cancer and has launched a GoFundMe page (http://www.gofundme.com/sb22g7f) to help cover treatment costs. We need your help spreading the word to raise funds! 
He had surgery a few month back to remove a large tumor from his abdomen, the cancer (a sarcoma) has now spread to his lungs and spine. Extensive treatment is required. 
Statement from the band (here's a link to the FB post) and note from Thomas (via GoFundMe) below. 
LMK if you are able to help spread awareness. Every little bit helps! 

Surfer Blood Facebook Post/Band Statement: 

Thomas has been playing guitar in Surfer Blood for nearly 6 years, but since December has been sidelined by treatment for cancer. We miss him everyday on the road but we know he is incredibly strong and we have faith in him, and in his doctors. We hope you can help with a donation of any size, and help spread the word by sharing on social media. Thank you so much for the support!

From Thomas Fekete (Surfer Blood guitarist):

Hey all, 

A few months back I had a major surgery to remove a large tumor from my abdomen. I was diagnosed with a very rare and aggressive cancer (a sarcoma), which unfortunately has moved. A few days ago, my doctors informed me that it had spread to my lungs and my spine. 

The lesion on my lower spine will be treated with radiation, and I’ll also start chemotherapy this week. Because my cancer is so rare, there is very little research on it (cancer treatment is a business after all), so going to a typical doctor and getting loaded with all types of drugs would probably kill me. However, I found a doctor who is on the cutting edge of cancer treatments, and we have assembled a team of brilliant doctors who all seem to be extremely confident in an alternative treatment plan, to complement the chemotherapy. Because these doctors are doing things a bit differently, insurance will only cover a portion of my treatment. I never in my life thought that I would be asking for money publicly, but the universe works in funny ways. 

Any bit of help would be massive for me, as I'm no longer able to tour and make a living, and my wonderful wife/best friend whom I just married in November will now be leaving work to help me throughout my treatment. If you can't help, no worries whatsoever, all I ask is that you spread the word. Any extra funds collected when this is all said and done will be donated to further my doctor's alternative cancer research. I not only feel great, but I am in great spirits, and I know this will soon be over like a bad dream. Please take care of yourselves, enjoy every single day. Life is beautiful. Love and light always.

In his triumphant return to the Coachella stage, Porter Robinson – who previously DJed Coachella in 2012 – rocked The Sahara tent both festival weekends with his incredibleWorlds live show.
Robinson’s Weekend 1 set trended worldwide on Twitter when he reveled a brand new remix for Nero’s The Thrill – his first remix since 2011 – igniting a firestorm of online praise for the track, which has since been streamed more than 1M times on Soundcloud andYouTube combined.
The visionary producer and electronic artist will continue to bring his revolutionary live show to festivals across the globe including this weekend’s goHard festival in Tacoma, WA plus upcoming appearances at Mysterland (NY), HARD Red Rocks (Denver), Splendour In The Grass (Australia), Sonicmania (Japan), Belgium’s Pukkelpop, and Reading and Leeds Festivals in the UK among many more (see below for tour dates).
The initial run of headline Worlds live dates – his first ever tour as a live performer instead of as a DJ – sold more than 100K tickets worldwide in 2015 selling out such venerable theaters as NYCs Terminal 5 (two nights), LA’s Shrine Theater, and London’s Koko.  
Designed in collaboration with music technologist and artist Laura Escudé aka Alluxe (Kanye, Jay Z, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Drake) and controlled by Robinson with Ableton Live and interactive MIDI controllers, the Worlds live show is as ambitious as his debut album itself. It’s a hyperreal, video-game fuelled dream come-to-life with Porter at the helm.

Map Clap (featuring French rap artist JoeyStarr) is the perfect track to get you pumped up for that crazy night out that everybody craves.  With pulsing techno-bass lines, sharp claps (see title of track), and scattered whooping sounds, the energy of this track is high and will be the one you hear blaring in all of the clubs this summer. 
“At the begining we wanted to make a track all about claps and percussions. Then we mixed that with another electronic baseline we made for another track, “ says the band.  “At the end, Joeystarr, one of the biggest french name in hip hop was in the studio to record on another track and he decided to try that one, too. It was so powerfull that we kept this recording session.

Make The Girl Dance has also released track Ye Ye (Ooh La La), which was accompanied by a music video directed by the artists themselves.  The video, similar to the track in it’s playfulness, follows a ball bounce all the way from Los Angeles to New York, showing clips of all popular landmarks in between. 
Their first single Baby Baby Baby (released 2009) paved the way for the duo with features in a Victoria’s Secret commercial and a Guitar Hero video.

NYC-based songwriter extraordinaire Mitski has just re-released her breakout record Bury Me At Make Out Creek via Don Giovanni Records. This release marks her joining of the Don Giovanni family and includes special, intimate unreleased tracks. With vivid lyrical imagery, buzzed out guitars and evocative vocals, Mitski has created a unique sound built upon her academic musical background, and as she makes the shift from concert hall to DIY venue her new relationship with the storied label will certainly continue to propel the transition.
Mitski took SXSW by storm, winning over crowds with her raw live intensity and soul-shaking lyrics. She just wrapped up a national tour with Hundred Waters and Screaming Females and will join Speedy Ortiz next week. Mitski put her unique touch on “Fireproof” one of her favorite songs from pop darlings One Direction. Paying homage to the percussive-driven original she reinvents the track into an indie rock anthem with gently growling grunge guitar, playful drums and her signature spellbinding vocal delivery.
Mitski shares, “We seem to delegitimize music that has a majority of young girl fans and think of it as having less cultural value. Isn't that strange? I'm not down with the elitism of indie rock music, where it considers itself to be more "serious" or "intelligent" than mainstream pop. That thought often has nothing to do with the composition or political motivations of the music as it's conveyed to be about, and more to do with its production, "aesthetic," and just another kind of branding. Here is a mainstream pop song that I liked and recorded with an "indie rock aesthetic." Is it more thoughtful now?”

Mistki’s “Fireproof” (One Direction Cover) premiered with Billboard 
today and we encourage you to post & share.
While attending SUNY Purchase and studying music composition, Mitski released two records inspired by orchestral energy and expansive in their own right. The brilliant writer came into her own with 2014’s Bury Me At Make Out Creek, immersed in fuzzy guitars, pounding drums, and poetically poignant lyrics, and created a sound all her own. Be sure to catch her live on tour this spring!

In his first new production since the release of the breakout debut album Worlds, Porter Robinson has delivered a stunning remix of NERO’s ‘The Thrill’. The track is the lead single from the forthcoming sophomore album Between Two Worlds from the Grammy Award winning British electronic band, released August 28 via Cherrytree Records/Interscope.
NERO announced details of their album Between Two Worlds after debuting new material from the record at Coachella during their headlining set Friday on the Outdoor Stage. Porter also debuted his synth-laden and slow burning remix of ‘The Thrill’ during his live set at Coachella on Friday. 
NERO’s ‘The Thrill’ was dubbed “amazing” by The Fader upon its release, and named BBC Radio One’s Hottest Record In The World by Annie Mac
Porter discussed the remix, and how producing it helped him break through post-album writers block, onsite at Coachella with Billboard, saying: 
“Deciding what to do after Worlds has been a big struggle for me over the last 6 months… In order for me to break this writers block I hit up a few artists who had made songs I liked recently. Right away NERO hit me back. They have a song called “The Thrill” which is an amazing, beautiful synth-pop track, and I was like ’let me remix it.’ I worked so fast and I made something I was really happy with.”
