DUA LIPA (COMPLETE EDITION) OUT NOW

DUA LIPA (COMPLETE EDITION) OUT NOW

Friday, October 19th marks the release of Dua Lipa – Complete Edition– a new extended version of her debut album that includes her collaboration with Silk City (Mark Ronson and Diplo) “Electricity”, the global hit “One Kiss” with Calvin Harris, her previous collaborations with Martin Garrix and Sean Paul, fan favorites from her live show “Want To” and “Running”, and the brand new song “Kiss and Make Up” with K-pop superstars BLACKPINK.

 Most recently, Dua, a Best New Artist nominee, performed a captivating medley of “One Kiss” and “Electricity” at the American Music Awards. She capped the evening off with the airing of what is becoming the classic prank on Jimmy Kimmel by today’s top pop stars (Rihanna, Britney Spears, Miley Cyrus).  Dua conspired with Jimmy Kimmel’s wife, Molly McNearney to “break” into their house and wake Jimmy up in the middle of the night in his bedroom with a performance of “Electricity”. She returned to the show the next evening for a more traditional performance of“Electricity”.
 
After a year of #1 hit singles, sold out shows and record-breaking streaming figures, Dua Lipa has become the biggest breakout artist in the world. Dua is the #1 most streamed female artist on Spotify, and is the first and only female artist in history to have 4 lead songs with over 500 Million Spotify streams. This summer she spent 8 weeks at #1 in the UK with her million plus selling hit “One Kiss” – the most weeks at number one for a female artist this century. Dua is also the youngest solo female artist to ever reach 1 billion views on YouTube for her smash hit single “New Rules”, which spent a record breaking 45 weeks on the U.S. pop songs chart.
 
Already collecting major accolades at the top of 2018, Dua scooped up two BRIT Awards after being nominated in five categories, the most nominations for a female performer in the history of the BRITS, performed to 85 million people at the UEFA ChampionsLeague final and has sold over 3 million albums (with more than 1 million albums sold in the U.S.) and 32 million singles worldwide.  Dua continues her nomination streak with two People’s Choice Awards, including: Female Artist of 2018 and Music Video of 2018 for “IDGAF,” with the ceremony to air November 11, 2018.

Broods "Peach" Bad Sounds Remix Out Now

BROODS
“PEACH” BAD SOUNDS REMIX
OUT NOW

SUPPORTING TAYLOR SWIFT ON
REPUTATION TOUR
AUSTRALIAN AND NEW ZEALAND DATES
Broods, the New Zealand born, LA-based indie-pop duo of siblings Georgia & Caleb Nott, have shared a new remix from rising UK band Bad Sounds. Of the remix, Bad Sounds shares, “The original already had loads of cool hooks for us to mess around with, so it was low pressure and fun for us. We both got really excited by that main groove when we first stumbled across it so from then on we just got to indulge in scuzzy bass sounds and tough drums for a few days." Listen to “Peach” Bad Sounds Remix here:https://Atlantic.lnk.to/PeachBSR

Broods have also joined Taylor Swift on the Australian and New Zealand leg of her 2018 Reputation Stadium Tour, which kicks off today in Perth, Australia. The tour will bring the band through Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, and culminate on November 9th in Auckland, NZ.

The original version of “Peach” was released in August, shortly after it was announced that the band had signed with Neon Gold/Atlantic Records. The single has surpassed 7.5 million streams worldwide and has been called “a dizzying concoction that somehow blends synth-pop, jangly indie-rock and choral elements” by Idolator. Last month, the band shared the official music video for “Peach,” which Harper’s BAZAAR proclaiming, “If this is a mere glimpse at Broods' next chapter, we can't wait to see what's next.” View the official video here. “Peach” is the first single from the band’s third album, expected early 2019 via Neon Gold/Atlantic Records.

Broods also recently played their first Los Angeles show with new music last month to a sold out crowd at The Roxy. Following the show, Ones To Watch declared, “Electric doesn’t even begin to cover the energy BROODS delivered to a fan-filled Roxy Theatre. On Sept. 26, the brother-sister duo returned to the stage for a killer show.” Following the band’s Roxy Show, Broods traveled to NYC to play Neon Gold X, Neon Gold’s 10 Year Anniversary celebration for an “electrifying set” (Billboard).

Broods had their breakthrough with the 2014 single “Bridges” from their full-length debutEvergreen. Broods released their sophomore record, Conscious, in June 2016 and soon saw lead single “Free” hit the top #10 on Spotify’s US Viral Chart. Broods have played leading festivals like Coachella, Lollapalooza and Outside Lands and shared stages with artists like Ellie Goulding, Haim, Sam Smith, and CHVRCHES over the past few years.

The Growlers Release "Problems III" New Music Video

THE GROWLERS RELEASE MUSIC VIDEO FOR "PROBLEMS III"

THE GROWLERS GET CASUAL HALLOWEEN PARTY
HOLLYWOOD PALLADIUM | OCT 18
The Growlers - Problems III (Official Video)
"Problems III" is a video about a mantis who visits a remote love hotel occupied by a motley cast of creatures. As she traverses the hallway, curiously peering into each room, she gets an intimate glimpse into each inhabitants' nightlife. 

The video was directed by Casual Acquaintances album art designers, Aleia Murawski and Sam Copeland, who used the miniature rooms from the album package as a jumping off point for the video. "We loved the idea of making a hotel called 'Problems III,’ populated by a lot of unique guests, said Murawksi. “Working with The Growlers has been one of the most special opportunities for us because they embrace all of our weird ideas."

The “Problems III” video stars the following little creatures: Herb the scorpion, Froggo the frog, Noodle the snail, Ozzy and Harriot the cockroaches, Millipete and Pete the millipedes and Barbara and Deborah the Mantises.

About Casual Acquaintances
Self-produced by core members Brooks Nielsen and Matt Taylor, the album Casual Acquaintances brings back the grit and DIY majesty of vintage Growlers. With its overdriven synths and tender, twisted lyrics, the lead single “Problems III” bridges the gap between “Beach Goth” in its purest form and the dance floor punch that made City Club so compelling. Consisting of demos, works-in-progress and other unfinished business from the band’s City Club sessions – and featuring cover art by internet phenoms Aleia Murawski and Sam Copeland –Casual Acquaintances defies expectation, delivering a fully-formed vision that stands alongside the band’s finest, fuzziest work.

About The Growlers
From their first LP Are You In or Out? (2009) to Casual Acquaintances (2018), The Growlers have forged their own twisted path on the global music scene. They’re the party band that grew into a traveling circus that spawned their own hit event, Beach Goth. Lead singer Brooks Nielsen draws a particular devotion among Growlers fans, as does chief cohort Matt Taylor, The Growlers’ music director and lead guitarist. Their most recent LP was 2016’s City Club, produced by Julian Casablancas, which saw them expand their palette to include West African, dance, and electronic influences.

"Some of her most emotionally intimate creations to date." - The FADER

"Emotionally complicated music that offers no easy answers... a heavy, gnarled exploration of self-sabotaging relationships." - Noisey

"Kinetic in a way that her previous work has only hinted at... It's always exciting to hear an artist release their best work yet, and that's exactly what Ian Sweet is doing on 'Hiding.'" - UPROXX

MassEducation: Reimagining of MASSEDUCTION Out Now on Loma Vista
Photo Credit: Pamela Neal
Following the release of her new album MassEducation, as well as her stunning performance during Jimmy Kimmel Live’s Brooklyn week—accompanied only by piano player Thomas Bartlett—St. Vincent confirms an intimate evening at Brooklyn’s esteemed BAM Harvey Theater on November 20th.
Audiences fortunate enough to have beheld the inspiring duo of Annie Clarke’s vocals and Bartlett’s mercurial playing live have been left dazzled, with critics praising the recent date at The Belasco Theatre in Los Angeles:
“She’s always defied expectations, and this show was no exception…it was a concert as powerful, rocking, compelling and strident as anything she’s ever done…she’s a versatile and powerful singer who can leap vocally, not unlike Bowie…she hasn’t reinvented songs — but has breathed new fire into them… to create new possibilities.”—AMERICAN SONGWRITER
“Her stage presence is a piece of art in its own right…in St. Vincent’s hands, nothing feels minor… It’s not just that she can do anything she tries, it’s that she does it well enough to make you reconsider everything you know about her… one of the most important contemporary musicians we have.”—UPROXX
Tickets to the BAM Harvey Theater performance will go on sale this Friday, October 19th at 10am EST, available here: http://bam.org/stvincent
St. Vincent’s new album MassEducation is out now on Loma Vista. Heralded by Entertainment Weekly as “riveting reinterpretations…exposed and unadorned, her pipes shine like never before — and infuse these old songs with fresh intensity, at times imbuing them with entirely new character…a testament to her versatile songwriting and remarkable vocal strength,” MassEducation is in fact another dimension of last year’s universally acclaimed MASSEDUCTION. Recorded live in the studio over two nights in 2017, MassEducation lays bare the exquisite songcraft of its other half. Performed entirely by Annie Clark on vocals and Thomas Bartlett on piano, the new album renders songs like “Young Lover” and “Fear The Future” and their subjects in vivid, vulnerable new light. Clark herself describes the album as “two dear friends playing songs together with the kind of secret understanding one can only get through endless nights in New York City.”

ELEANOR FRIEDBERGER PREMIERES VIDEO FOR “IT’S HARD”

ELEANOR FRIEDBERGER PREMIERES VIDEO FOR “IT’S HARD”
Touring Across The UK From Next Week!
+ Reveals Remix Of ‘Are We Good’ by Cate Le Bon
(photo credit: Chris Eckert)
Watch The Video For "It’s Hard"

Ahead of her UK dates next week in support of current album Rebound which will see Eleanor performing with full band. Eleanor Friedberger premieres both a new video for "It’s Hard" and a special remix of "Are We Good" by Cate Le Bon.

Video Director Christine Pfister explains the thinking behind the ‘It’s Hard’ video: "For this piece, I thought it would be fun to put real Eleanor in the doll world and doll Eleanor in the real world. “It’s Hard “ is about a Greek nightclub, which is also the namesake of the album, so I wanted to focus on the Eleanors traveling to the nostalgic spot."

Check out the new remix of "Are We Good" by Cate Le Bon

“I've admired Cate's work since a friend in LA put on Mug Museum after dinner. I learned how to play I Think I Knew and later, Love is not Love-- usually botching both in front of audiences-- but always getting a cheer when I mentioned I was a big fan of Cate LeBon. We met the day after my 40th birthday in Cardiff; she and her friends sang Happy Birthday in Welsh and she gave me a scarf with long, black fringe. 

I've been interested in the idea of remixing my own recordings for years, and thought Rebound was finally my first album that clearly lent itself to the silly notion. Instead of doing it myself, I thought it would be better to ask a talented friend. I was hoping for a series of remixes; we'll have to wait and see... “ Eleanor Friedberger

"I didn't know what a remix was, I still don't know what a remix is. I subtracted and added and made it longer." Cate Le Bon
Forthcoming Tour Dates:
October 24 - London, UK - Oslo
October 25 - Bristol, UK - Exchange

Calvin Love Shares New Single "You Got Me Runnin," New LP Out Next Week via Modern Sky USA

Calvin Love Shares New Single "You Got Me Runnin"
via 
BrooklynVegan

Highway Dancer Out October 26th via Modern Sky USA,
On Tour w/ The 
Sheepdogs

Canadian songwriter Calvin Love will release his new LP, Highway Dancer, next Friday, October 26th via Modern Sky USA. Inspired by his restless spirit and the thousands of miles he's spent alone on the open road, it's an album for travelers, and for anyone who's ever been in between moving and standing still.

Today, Love shares album track "You Got Me Runnin," a song that perfectly embodies the record's yearning, lonesome vibe. You can stream the track where it premiered with BrooklynVegan or on YouTube.

There’s a palpable mood at the heart of Highway Dancer, as mercurial, dream-like, and haunted as a late night on the open road. It's a love song to the journey, to the quiet hours, and to all of the places our minds drift to as the miles go by -- something that Love knows well. A lifelong musician, he's never been able to stay in one place for long: there was a move to Europe at 18, a couple of years in LA, and a few more spent just about everywhere else you can think of. While he's always been influenced by his nomadic lifestyle, the new album takes on a new kind of road-noir, his usual shades of deep scarlet and aubergine now laced with the clay-red of the Badlands and the ice-blue glow of the dashboard.

Love is currently on tour with The Sheepdogs, and has a record release show coming up next month in Toronto. See below for all upcoming dates.




Calvin Love on Tour:
* w/ The Sheepdogs
10/18: Boise, ID - JUMP Boise (Pioneer Room)*
10/19: Salt Lake City, UT - Urban Lounge*
10/21: Denver, CO - Hi-Dive*
11/8:  Toronto, ON - Monarch Tavern (record release show)
