Benny Boeldt, also known as Adventure, will be releasing his new album 8 of Cups. Record will be out January 26th, 2016. The first single, “Tea,” is streaming now via Baltimore City Paper and Spotify.
8 of Cups signals the beginning of a new chapter for Benny Boeldt, the Baltimore artist also known as Adventure. It’s the first record under Boeldt’s own name after releasing three albums as Adventure on Carpark Records. It will be available in stores and online Jan. 29, 2016! Pre-order the album on the Carpark shop & iTunes.
8 of Cups veers from wacky to beautiful to chaotic; using gorgeous melodies, hyperactive noise, and off-the-wall samples. The title is a reference to the tarot card, which Boeldt found to be an accurate representation of his life as he made the album. The 8 of cups card embodies the start of a new journey, a transition, growing apart, and accepting one’s faults to move on.

TEEN has announced the release of their third full-length album Love Yes. The record will be out February 19th, 2016. Stream the first single from the album, “All About Us,” via Noisey.
Pre-orders are now available on the Carpark shop & iTunes. An instant download of “All About Us” is available when you pre-order the record. The first 40 physical orders will receive an autographed lyric poster.
With Love Yes, the band explores the disharmony and empowerment that both sexuality and spirituality can create within the modern woman’s psyche. Universal ideas of loyalty, pleasure, purity, power, aging, and love are confronted with a knowable specificity. There is a quality of wholesomeness, but also an edge—a kind of wise anger and electricity.
Thanks to our friends at Madewell who recently profiled teen. Find the feature on their blog.
