2017 International & US tour dates resume
August 11th
B-Sides and Rarities will be available June 30th in North America from Sub Pop, in Europe from Bella Union and in Australia/New Zealand from Mistletone
Beach House is streaming its forthcoming B-Sides and Rarities album in its entirety via NPR Music’s “First Listen.” The 14-track album is out June 30th in North America from Sub Pop, Europe from Bella Union, and Australia from Mistletone.

NPR Music says of the album: “Beach House has spent 13 years and six albums perfecting a hazy dream-pop sound that's as versatile as it is enduringly, endearingly simple. Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally make brooding, deliberately paced music that still sparkles and sweetens in surprising ways — a contradiction summed up by the title of one of Beach House's best records, Depression Cherry...Given its title, B-Sides And Rarities is upfront about being an exercise for enthusiasts, completists and other loving obsessives. But more casual fans shouldn't shrug it off, either. Beach House has mounted a marvelous career on its ability to set a gloomy electro-pop mood without losing touch with its brighter side — and that gift stays on full display throughout this shaggily appealing assortment of orphaned gems [link here].”

Beach House also recently delivered a new video for “Chariot” (from B-Sides and Rarities) which was directed by the band. The visual is acts as a rumination on the creation, cultivation, and confusion of narratives in media [link here].

Beach House’s B-Sides and Rarities will be released on CD / LP / CASS / DL and is available for pre-order now [link here]. LP pre-orders in North America through the Sub Pop Mega Mart and select independent retailers will receive the Loser Edition on crystal clear vinyl (while supplies last). A new T-shirt design is also available.

Ice Balloons (Supergroup of TV on the Radio, Samiam, Surfbort, Wild Yaks) Debut New Track/Announce New Record via Stereogum

                   Ice Balloons Premieres
 
“Calypso Heartworm”
 
LISTEN NOW via Stereogum

 
Fiesta is out on August 11th 2017 via
"It’s a droning noise-punk assault that feels both primitive and futuristic, and it’s even better if you picture it being sung by a giant golden fly. "
- Stereogum
“...a squally, reverb heavy racket that sounds like 1200 glass planets shattering while a garage punk band plays on a strip of tarmac as Mad Max-style denizens drag race around them.”
- Noisey


Listen to the Track Here




From the minds of mischief makers, no-wave, noise-punk band Ice Balloons - Kyp Malone (TV On The Radio), Sean Kennerly (Samiam), Sean Powell (Fuckemos, Surfbort), Giselle Reiber (Midnight Masses), Dan Scinta (Wild Yaks) and BA Miale- comes the first single “Calypso Heartworm”




Listen to the Track Here
Bringing together elements from each of these band members’ pasts - this single shows how diverse this team can get. The dissonance created by the vocals paired with the substantial sounds of washed out drums carries the listeners down a kaleidoscope of noise like never heard before. It’s to be noted that many songs from Fiesta involve inspirations from insects. What that means you’ll have to find out - take “Calypso Heartworm” as your first test.
Aiming to highlight the sensation of distance from the driving forces of everyday reality - Ice Balloons are ready to take you anywhere, nowhere and somewhere in between.

Fiesta is out August 11, 2017 on limited color vinyl and all digital formats on Volar Records. Preorders of the vinyl are available at the Volar Bandcamp.

Oakland-based pop-rockers The Tambo Rays to release new EP, Recharge


The Tambo Rays - "Yes and No" - YouTube // SoundCloud



Oakland-based pop-rockers The Tambo Rays
to release new EP, Recharge,
out July 17th via OIM Records

RechargeAlbumArtBYMuzae Sesay.jpg
“Distinguished by the two DaMert’s complimentary vocals and a shimmering, danceable style, they fondly recall the mid-’00s days of Shout Out Louds, Metric and Moonbabies.” - BrooklynVegan

“...the band is led by saccharine-voiced Sara DaMert, who lends a cherubic, innocent feel to the Tambo Rays’ bubbly, indie-pop jams.”  - SF Weekly

Listen: The Tambo Rays - “Get It Right Now” - https://soundcloud.com/oimrecords/the-tambo-rays-get-it-right-now-1

(Brooklyn, NY) In examining the sound, story and circumstances injected into Oakland-based indie-pop-rock band The Tambo Rays’ new EP, you would be hard pressed to come up with a more fitting title than Recharge.

The project has been on again off again since its inception in 2012 by founder Brian DaMert (guitar, vox) who soon found an immediately furthered kinship with his sister, Sara (lead vox), who joined with no previous musical experience. Joined by Greg Sellin (bass/ back vox) and Bob Jakubs (drums), The Tambo Rays would soon go on to release their debut EP, Kaleidoscope.

The momentum would be quickly interrupted, however, as the DaMert’s and Sellin found success as members of WATERS with the failing health of Brian and Sara’s father weighing on them through his passing in 2015.

“The past two years have been a healing process,” shares Brian. “Writing music was a form of therapy during these turbulent times, what came out of it was this EP.”

With Recharge, The Tambo Rays craft buoyant, sun-soaked pop-rock as Sara’s infectious vocals and energy spring out like the prismatic light structures their father was famous for creating in the 70s. The EPs five life-affirming tracks respond to the uncertainties we all face with radiant positivity and saccharine, driving pop-rock reminiscent of golden-era Blondie. The EP also marks the band’s first release with Lisa Weiss (keys) who joined in 2016.

Look for Recharge out July 17th via OIM Records and be sure to follow The Tambo Rays on any of their social channels detailed below.

The Huffington Post
 
"California rock quartet follows up lead single "Love is Mystical" with the equally enticing "So Tied Up".  This one is a fast -paced toe tapper with a stadium-sized arrangement. As far as angsty passionate themes to conflicted love affairs go, this one ticks all the right boxes." - TIME Magazine
 
 
Cold War Kids will perform a free show at Union Station in Los Angeles on Friday, June 23rd.  The show, in partnership with Sofar Sounds, and Metro Art Presents is open to the public on a first come first service basis and fans can visitwww.sofarsounds.com/comp/cold-war-kids-23rd-June to enter to win a limited number of guaranteed entry spots to the show.  The band's new album LA Divine- their sixth studio L.P. and first for Capitol Records is out now.  The album pays tribute to Los Angeles in all its strange glory, embodying the Long Beach band's endless fascination with their adopted hometown.

The single held the No. 1 spot for Most Increased Plays at AAA radio for two consecutive weeks, the No. 1 spot on the Alt 18 Countdown for four consecutive weeks and hit #2 at Alternative and has been in the Top 5 at AAA radio for ten consecutive weeks.  The song is approaching 17 million streams worldwide and hit #4 on Billboard's Alternative Songs chart.

British singer/songwriter Bishop Briggs lends her formidable vocals to the stomping, gospel-infused "So Tied Up," which shines a light on everyday struggle, but burns with the promise of hope. Videos for the tracks "Can We Hang On?" "So Tied Up" Ft. Bishop Briggsand "Restless" are now streaming on Vevo.  Coming on the heels of 2014's Hold My Home - which featured the chart-topping, Gold-certified single "First" - LA Divine is Cold War Kids' most expansive and ambitious effort so far.  The band just wrapped a sold out North American headline tour and will also join Young The Giant on the "Home of the Strange Tour," beginning August 2nd in Louisville, KY.
