PUBLIC ACCESS T.V. SHARE "SUDDEN EMOTION," ANNOUNCE ALBUM DETAILS FOR DEBUT ALBUM
NEVER ENOUGH; TOUR
 
Public Access T.V. is excited to share "Sudden Emotion" off forthcoming album Never Enough, out September 23, 2016 on Cinematic. The garage band successfully nabbed the attention of NME early on, with the outlet singing their praises after uploading just one song to SoundCloud.  The quartet was declared "New York City's hottest new band" by the extremely influential outlet.  Check out the trackhere.

 
 
The band is hot off of Bonnaroo and Governor's Ball Festivals- all before even releasing their first album.  In addition, both NME, and Entertainment Weekly declared the group one of the "buzziest" bands at SXSW this past year.  Extremely high praise for a festival boasting thousands of artists!
 
The group played their first live show at the legendary East Village bar Niagara, to a packed crowd of NYC press, who's who, it girls, and record label representatives.  Before anyone could pin them down they headed to England to hone their sound.  Better still, they toured under the fake band name "The iLL Herbs."  Regardless of touring under a pseudonym, the tour was a smashing success, culminating in their performance at The Great Escape Festival in Brighton.
 
Then, in March 2015, while on tour in California, the band flicked on the TV to see live pictures of their Manhattan loft on every single news channel. Their home was on fire from a gas explosion and had collapsed into rubble. "We wrote there, rehearsed, recorded, lived, everything," says John. "It was home...and then it was completely gone."
 
Demoralized and thousands of miles from NYC, PATV did the only thing they could think of.  They stayed out on the road.  As John says: "We told our agent to book as many gigs as possible - because we didn't want to deal with the reality of the situation. We actually had nowhere to go."
 
That chain of events set PATV on an entirely new and fruitful path. Among those frantic gig bookings were slots on European festivals, UK house parties, and dates with The Strokes, FIDLAR, Palma Violets, and Hinds, with many more big things to come for the group!  Check out the band at one of the live dates listed below!

Negative Gemini Shares New Single with Details On Her Upcoming Album via The FADER

NEGATIVE GEMINI SHARES NEW SINGLE
"DON'T WORRY BOUT THE FUCK I'M DOING" VIA THE FADER

SOPHOMORE LP 'BODY WORK' - OUT AUGUST 12th
ON 100% ELECTRONICA

300 BLACK VINYL AVAILABLE NOW FOR PREORDER
Negative Gemini - "Body Work"

Negative Gemini's sweltering new single "Don't Worry Bout The Fuck I'm Doing" is a listless anthem as equally well suited for the dancefloor as it is for languidly wandering through the scorching NYC summer streets. Lyrically, the track is an expression of anger and frustration with the inability of many women to simply exist in public spaces without feeling harassed or objectified by catcallers. "Don't Worry Bout The Fuck I'm Doing" is from Lindsey's upcoming album, Body Work which will be out August 12th on 100% Electronica. The Album will be available digitally on the date of release, but 300 vinyl copies are available now for preorder.

LISTEN & SHARE: Negative Gemini - "Don't Worry Bout The Fuck I'm Doing"

"'Don't Worry Bout The Fuck I'm Doing' is sonically consistent with her futuristic take on electronic pop. Her voice rides the hypnotic beat, but her charged lyrics take front stage" - The FADER

"When French lets loose emotionally, as on ‘You Never Knew’ or last year’s stunning ‘Forget Your Future’, it’s crushing. The shitheads here though only warrant the calm instruction of the title and with it French shows off another facet to her increasingly exciting work." - FACT

"one of our favorite tracks from the record, an emphatic middle finger to the disgusting catcallers she encounters on a daily basis in NYC .. ethereal electronic pop anthem." - Gorilla vs Bear

"A gorgeous, space-y spin on NG's signature, forward-thinking electropop, it's definitely a headbobber." - PAPER Mag

"Your summer anthem is here, courtesy of Negative Gemini. One of our favorite up-and-coming singer/producers ... this synthy indie track induces long summer joyride yearning alongside unforgiving bad bitch vibes." - Nasty Gal

Choir of Young Believers Share New Video For "Serious Lover"; New Album Grasque Out Now Via Ghostly International

Choir of Young Believers Share New Video For "Serious Lover"

New Album Grasque Out Now Via Ghostly International
Performing At Denmark's Roskilde Festival & Announce Fall European Tour Dates 
Watch "Serious Lover" here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A69_Q38YLDU
With new album Grasque out now via Ghostly International, Choir of Young Believers has released the video for "Serious Lover". Choir of Young Believers will be playing at Roskilde Festival, along with other European festivals, and embarking on a European tour in the autumn, with a headline London show on 2nd November at Village Underground.
Directed by Camilla Myhre, the 'Serious Lover' provides some beautifully smoky visuals and features to match the smouldering electronic sounds of the the Copenhagen-based Jannis Makrigiannis. 
Grasque exhibits an array of complex influences and styles ranging from smoky jazz to experimental electronics to smouldering R&B sounds. The album’s title was in fact the name given by frontman Jannis Makrigiannis to the imaginary band he’d conjured up in his head while finding inspiration for the album. Though not his original intention, he soon realised that he could bring his new ideas and music together into a new Choir of Young Believers record. The result is confident and expansive, exploring a multitude of musical styles whilst retaining the integral components of Choir of Young Believers' sound.
It was the end of 2013 and Jannis Noya Makrigiannis, the frontman and principal persona behind Choir of Young Believers, was worn out. He’d been touring the band’s last record, the haunting Rhine Gold, for the better part of a year and felt confused and adrift, and didn’t feel like playing music. He was doubting the future of the band. The way he coped was to detach. He postponed writing in favor of travelling, deciding that instead of diving back into the creation of another record, he would allow himself to move in whatever direction he desired. His impulses guided his decisions; he wasn’t feeling very inspired by the guitar or the piano, so he started to fiddle around with a small pocket sampler his mother got him for Christmas, using it to make small soundscapes, beats and collages. 
 
Those early experiments became the building blocks for Grasque, from the warped, weird choral vocals that open "Serious Lover" to the breezy, breathy R&B of "Jeg Ser Dig," on which he sounds like a Scandinavian Sade. The record pulls in a host of unlikely influences: smoky jazz on the noirish "The Whirlpool Enigma" , twinkling pop on "Gamma Moth" and sun-bathed soul on
"Cloud Nine." It’s not so much a reinvention as a redirection, maintaining all of the group’s essential elements but setting them within a new context.


The result is an album that is confident and expansive, incorporating an encyclopedia of styles while still maintaining the essential elements of Choir of Young Believers’ DNA. It’s pop music, put through a kaleidoscopic filter.  “I must admit, one of the things I worried about was ‘What will people think?'" Makrigiannis says. “With almost all of these songs, I had been in doubt. Some, I felt, were too poppy, others too experimental -- some didn’t even feel like songs, but more like trips, or feelings. Some even had Danish and Greek lyrics. But now, it’s all Choir of Young Believers to me, and it feels great to have pushed the walls around the band, giving it a bit more space. It’s weird for me to think about all that doubt -- ”Could I do this? Could I do that? I mean, it’s my f*cking band. I can do what I want with it. Right?”
Grasque is available on CD, digitally and as a limited color double LP, along with a regular black vinyl edition

Following a successful U.S. visit last week in which she appeared to rapt crowds atNYC’s Central Park Summerstage and Washington DC’s The Hamilton, French-Israeli songstress Yael Naim announces a series of upcoming North American tour dates this Fall in support of her internationally acclaimed album Older in the U.S. September 2nd via Thirty Tigers.

Revered for her soulful yet delicate vocals, Naim first gained acclaim as a breakout success both in her native France and abroad when her 2008 self-titled album went Gold, thanks in no small part to lead single “New Soul”. The tune was handpicked by Steve Jobs himself for this Apple Campaign, and went on to see 2M in global sales and charting in the Billboard Top 100.

The 2016 French “Artist Of The Year” and “Album Of The Year” nominee now sets her sites on the U.S. with the stateside release of her third LP Older (certified Gold in France). Mixed by Grammy winning producer Michael Brauer (Coldplay, Grizzly Bear, M Ward), the album is a collaborative effort by Naim and producer David Donatien and was recorded in their home on the outskirts of Paris. It paints the picture of a woman who has grown and come into herself, having become a mother for the first time and lost a beloved grandparent.

With her sights set on North America and more in the works for 2016, stay tuned for more Yael Naim news and be sure to catch her live this fall!

Diet Cig Confirm Summer And Fall Tour Dates. Includes Riot Festival in Denver and Austin's Sound On Sound Fest!

DIET CIG CONTINUE NON-STOP TOUR WITH ADDITION OF MORE DATES THIS SUMMER AND FALL!

CONFIRMED FOR DENVER'S RIOT FEST AND AUSTIN'S SOUND ON SOUND FESTIVAL 

DEBUT ALBUM COMING 2017

 

Though Diet Cig now call Brooklyn, NY home its a fair bet to say that since March of this year they have spent more time in a tour van than Brooklyn.  That trend shows no sign of slowing down as the band continues to book additional shows across the US.  Today they announce additions to the tour schedule with the new round of dates kicking off July 9 inColumbusOH and concluding (for now) at Austin's Sound on Sound Festival inNovember.  In addition to that festival they will also be performing at Atlanta's Wrecking Ball Festival in August,  and in September Riot Fest in DenverCOHopscotch inRaleighNC and Pop Montreal.  Headline shows are on the schedule for, among other cities, TorontoBrooklyn and Washington, DC. The full tour is listed below! 

Diet Cig is Alex Luciano (guitar) and Noah Bowman (drums) and the duo have made a big statement out of five highly infectious pop songs released last year via their EP Over Easy.  While recalling the sound of speedy twee-pop groups like Tiger Trap and All Girl Summer Fun Band, the record explores "the innocence of adolescence and infatuation." With Bowman's crashing drum kit offering stationary support, Luciano becomes an onstage tornado as lines between band and audience blur into a massive dance party.  Check out the EP's epic singalong "Harvard."

After garnering attention from the likes of PitchforkRolling Stone, Stereogum,and Spin, Diet Cig returned with the seven-inch, "Sleep Talk / Dinner Date." "Sleep Talk" begins where Over Easy left off, with the candidly self-analytical statement, "I can't play instruments very well and I'll eat all of your cereal." While this line may feel lighthearted, the narrative quickly grows complicated with the gentle admission, "If I told you I loved you I don't know who it would scare away faster." "Dinner Date" continues the theme of painful retrospection and vulnerability as Luciano examines familial disappointment. Both songs offer a more complex level of intimacy and prove that Diet Cig are here to stay.

Both the EP and the singles were recorded with Christopher Daly at Salvation Recording Company in New Paltz, NY and mastered by Jamal Ruhe at West West Side Music.  

"Cathartic pop-punk with boundless vitality and wide-eyed charm." - NPR

"A collection of brisk, personal pop-punk. - Pitchfork

"A lo-fi whirlwind, with songs cutting to the heart." - The New York Times

"There doesn't seem to be another band that proves quite so natural to adore" - The Line of Best Fit

"This New York-based garage punk duo knows how to pack maximum wallop into small bundles-both in terms of their music and their outstanding, pint-size frontwoman, Alex Luciano." - Paste

"duo whose live show is uninhibited and inspiring." - Consequence of Sound

"...guitarist-vocalist Alex Luciano made sure all eyes were on her. Jumping across the stage whenever she wasn't singing, and tossing out high kicks that would put Robert Pollard to shame, Luciano put on a joyously fun performance during the band's short set." - AV Club


Diet Cig is currently working on their full length debut.

LEGENDARY SINGER/SONGWRITER/PRODUCER BARRY GIBB SIGNS TO COLUMBIA RECORDS

LEGENDARY SINGER/SONGWRITER/PRODUCER BARRY GIBB SIGNS TO COLUMBIA RECORDS 

SET TO RELEASE HIS FIRST SOLO ALBUM INVOLVING NEW MATERIAL ‘IN THE NOW’ DUE OUT ON COLUMBIA RECORDS THIS FALL


ELDEST BROTHER AND CO-FOUNDER OF THE ICONIC BEE GEES RECORDS
FIRST ALBUM 
OF ALL NEW MATERIAL 

 HALL OF FAMER JOINED COLDPLAY ONSTAGE SUNDAY NIGHT AT GLASTONBURY FESTIVAL AS A GUEST PERFORMER
Credit: Danny Clinch
(Columbia Records; New York, NY – June 28, 2016) – Legendary Grammy award winning singer/songwriter/producer Barry Gibb has signed with Columbia Records and will release his first album with the label titled, In The Now, in the fall of 2016. The surviving member of one of music’s most successful and revered bands, the Bee Gees, (formed with his brothers Robin and Maurice), has kept In The Now a family affair, writing all the songs with his sons Stephen and Ashley.

Produced by Barry and co-producer John Merchant, the album is only the second solo effort of Gibb’s career and his first album of all new material since the Bee Gees final studio album in 2001.  In The Now is an impassioned solo effort that signals a welcome return of one of the most identifiable and versatile voices in the history of rock, pop, and R&B. The 12-track album was recorded in Miami with the same gathering of accomplished musicians Barry assembled for his acclaimed 2014 solo tour.

As a record producer/songwriter, Barry has been instrumental in creating milestones for other artists, ranging from Barbra Streisand’s ‘Guilty’ album to Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers country record ‘Islands In The Stream’ also, Diana Ross ‘Eaten Alive featuring ‘Chain Reaction’ as well as Dionne Warwick’s ‘Heartbreaker’ album.

“This is a dream come true for me. It’s a new chapter in my life. I always hoped one day that The Bee Gees would be with Columbia or indeed Sony so, it’s a great joy for me to start again this way with such great people”

Between Robin, Maurice, and Andy, the Gibb brothers achieved 19 number one records on the Billboard charts including, a phenomenal 6 in a row equaling The Beatles record.

“I will never forget my brothers, they will always be a part of everything I do. Our dream came true”

Barry returned to live performing in 2013-2014 with the Mythology Tour, celebrating the Bee Gees anthology release of the same name as a tribute to his three brothers. The acclaimed tour included shows in Australia, New Zealand, England, Ireland, and The U.S., garnering an outpouring of affection and critical praise from around the world.
