"Let Me Get There" is a collaboration with acclaimed singer songwriter Kurt Vile. Says Kurt, "It was a total honor to sing along to a beautifully hypnotic soul groove with heavyweights like Hope, Colm, and all the other top notch musos. To respond to Hope's call in song of letting her get there felt right and real and gave me chills while singing, even though I knew they already got there years before I walked in the building."

STREAM House of Souls

"Inspired by the classic Velvet Underground song "Caroline Says," this track by the Austin-based band Tele Novella is going to make you so happy." NPR All Sounds Considered on "Heavy Balloon"

"Tele Novella have a bittersweet sound, satisfyingly reminiscent of 1960s girl groups and crestfallen twee. Awash in tambourine and harmonies, their songs reveal the drama of figuring out what it means to be alive." Lenny Letter

"Following a 2014 single and a 2015 EP, the first album-length release from this quartet fully realizes their deliciously twisted artistic vision that's a little bit like if "The Addams Family" were a musical collective. Singer-guitarist Natalie Ribbons is the natural focal point, but it's just as obvious that this is a team effort: Keyboardist Sarah La Puerta, bassist Jason Chronis and drummer Matt Simon are all essential to the band's sound and style, which often seeks out dark corners that make their lighter moments all the more bright."Austin 360

"Tele Novella (featuring members of Agent Ribbons and Voxtrot) have a theatrical and literate sound; they've appeared on a Wes Anderson tribute compilation, but they've got a little of Tom Waits' or David Lynch's sense for the outré, as well, with moments more appropriate for Blue Velvet than The Royal Tenenbaums."LA Weekly

"Tele Novella's latest, House of Souls, is playing in the house next door to the Wilson brothers, heard just under the ear beyond the manicured shrubbery. Dreamy, humid, and teetering, ready to fall or be pushed at any minute. " Antigravity Magazine

"A bit reminscent of some of my favorites, Sleater-Kinney and Courtney Barnett, the vocals convey a certain facetious attitude. The sleek production is almost good enough to shine on its own, but then the surfy, washed out guitar licks combined with some low-key synths completely push it over the edge."  Baeble

"House of Souls is a fine pop album with morose undertones as there are references to corpses and death and things of that nature, but not in a Thriller type way, more like Os Mutantes. Illusion and delusion are subjective - we fabricate worlds in times of joy or duress causing things to seem better (or worse) than they are depending on the dominant feeling."Free Press Houston

"House of Souls reminds listeners why music is not only an auditory experience, but a visual one as well. Often lending itself to the world of film noir, Wes Anderson, and spaghetti westerns, it's impossible to listen to this album without an array of bright lights and colors flooding your mind. While the album may not be perfect (it sometimes stray too close to generic pop), Tele Novella have created a record that stands on its own and could provide a beautiful soundtrack. Tarantino, take note."Stitched Sound

More About Tele Novella:

Tele Novella is an inspired macabre-pop band out of Austin, TX. They are dreamy, they are spooky, and they write real fucking songs. While one may detect the influence of the nocturnal jungles of Os Mutantes or the lapelled, knee-socked smarts of Belle and Sebastian, they have cobbled together a special kind of mineral all their own worth making room on the Table of Elements for. Earnest, yet sinister; Vampy, but sentimental. The precise recipe that goes into this concoction cannot be revealed, but it is a delightful snow globe of warm, colorful darkness.

In 2014, they won a contest for free recording time at Dub Narcotic Studios in Olympia, WA. This resulted in their first single, "Trouble in Paradise," that was later featured in the ABC television series Pretty Little Liars. Not long after that in 2015, their EP Cosmic Dial Tone was released on Los Angeles label Lollipop Records on the heels of a Wes Anderson tribute compilation (American Laundromat Records), to which they contributed a contagiously glad version of "Stephanie Says" by The Velvet Underground.

A Corpse Wired For Sound, the new album by Merchandise, is released worldwide today.
Formed nearly a decade ago, galvanized by Tampa hardcore and inspired by its miscreant noise, A Corpse Wired For Sound signals a new chapter for Merchandise. Following 2014’s After The End — a full-band effort recorded in a closet — the band stripped back to its core of Carson Cox, Dave Vassalotti and Pat Brady. The trio travelled to Rosà, Italy for their first ever sessions in a recording studio with a local, Maurizio Baggio. The nine-song nocturnal A Corpse Wired For Sound was recorded half in the studio and half at home, in Tampa as well as Cox’s newly adopted bases of New York and Berlin – the culmination of a long-distance collaboration between Cox and Vassalotti.

Chicago trio Pamphleteers (ex-The Dials, The Returnables) debut album streaming in full, inspired post-punk borne of friendship and loss

Pamphleteers full length debut streaming in full,
powerful post-punk borne of tragedy

Husband, bandmates, friends killed by suicidal driver inspired new band to cope with loss
Hear & share The Ghost That Follows album (Soundcloud) (Bandcamp)
"One word to sum up The Ghost That Follows? Raw." -- Speak Into My Good Eye

"An undeniable piece of rock perfection." -- Music & Riots

Chicago trio Pamphleteers stream their full length debut The Ghost That Follows in its entirety starting today. Hear and share the full album via New Noise MagazineSoundcloud andBandcamp.

Pamphleteers also celebrate the album release with a hometown show on Monday, September 26th at The Empty Bottle. See current dates below. 

The band spoke candidly about the tragic events that brought them together and gave a rousing in-studio appearance earlier this week on Chicago's NPR radio affiliate WBEZ. Hear & share the entire interview/performance HERE

Speak Into My Good Eye recently premiered album track "L.A. L.A." alongside a shining reviewHERE. Music & Riots Magazine launched the album title track HERE. And, Impose Magazine previously shared the anthemic single, "Shivering" HERE.

Pamphleteers have been unleashing their shimmering post-punk assault since 2012. After debuting with a split EP, the band released its first full length today. The Ghost That Follows overflows with fantastic hooks and urgency reminiscent of X-Ray SpexBikini KillYoung Marble Giants and The Gun Club

As a group, Pamphleteers are steeped in history and friendship. Having played in such bands as 
The Dials (No Fun Records/Latest Flame), Telenovela, and The Returnables (Jettison Music/Dirtnap), bassist/vocalist Rebecca Crawford, drummer Geoff Atkinson, and guitarist Jonathan Ben-Isvy have played side by side, if not together, for more than a decade, and their friendship goes back years earlier. When event conspired to find Crawford and Ben-Isvy simultaneously bandless for the first time in their years of friendship, they naturally looked to each other to fulfill their musical compulsion. 

As Pamphleteers, Crawford, Atkinson, and Ben-Isvy darkly smash anything and everything that excite them into the rock 'n' roll caldron. The result is a sort of psychedelic new wave delivered with the punk urgency that rests at the trio's core. Angular, melodic guitar, repetitively grooving bass lines, massive, yet danceable drumbeats, and dark yet soaring vocals imbue Pamphleteers with an inescapably hook laden urgency. 

The Ghost That Follows is available on LP and download as of September 23rd, 2016.
