Prince Rama announces Xtreme Now + releases first single

December 8, 2015 11:45 am

Please welcome Prince Rama to Carpark Records! The Larson sisters have been a part of the family for a good while, releasing three full-length albums on our sister label Paw Tracks. Prince Rama’s first release for Carpark is Xtreme Now, out March 4, 2016. Stream the first single from the album, “Bahia,” via Interview.

Pre-orders are now available on the Carpark shop & iTunes. An instant download of “Bahia” is available when you pre-order the record. The first 40 physical orders will receive a Prince Rama temporary tattoo.

Their new songs take on a more powerful, confident, fierce, infectious, all-encompassing, and accessible dance-club feeling than any other Prince Rama record—a fearless, visionary pop tour de force for the ghost-modern era that celebrates the ephemerality of life, dancing just at the edge of death’s gilded smile.

Catch Prince Rama live:
December 19th – Days For Night – Houston, TX
March 4th – Baby’s All Right – Brooklyn, NY – **Record Release Show**

Benny Boeldt announces album + shares first single

November 17, 2015 4:32 pm

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.
