Speedy Ortiz announce “Foiled Again” EP + share first single

May 9, 2016 9:17 am

Very happy to announce that Speedy Ortiz is back with a new EP, Foiled Again, out June 3rd. The digital-only 4-track release is an addendum to 2015’s critically acclaimed Foil Deer featuring two outtakes, Death Note,” which premiered this weekend via Sirius XMU, and “Emma O”. It also includes two remixes of Foil Deer’s “Puffer.” Pre-orders are available now in
the Carpark shop and iTunes.

Frontwoman Sadie Dupuis on the first single: “‘Death Note’ is named after the anime, which is about an evil supernatural notebook that causes the death of anyone whose name is written inside of it. The song is about writing through your depression as a way to get better, and how in that way a death note can be kind of love letter to yourself.”

stream young magic’s “still life”

May 6, 2016 12:05 pm

Happy Friday! Young Magic’s new album “Still Life” is streaming a week early over at WNYC’s Soundcheck. Give it a listen here. Only a week left to pre-order your copy from the Carpark shop or iTunes.

“The cumulative effect is that we understand the title Still Life to mean its common denotation: a picture, a snapshot of a period of convalescence in [Melati] Malay’s journey. But it’s also a reminder that the varied emotional strata expressed in these songs are all, in fact, still life. Despite everything dark and dense, there’s a pulse, alive and invigorating.”

Young Magic shares third single “Default Memory”

April 25, 2016 4:42 pm

Less than three weeks until the Young Magic’s album Still Life is here! The duo shared their third single, “Default Memory,” today via i-D. “‘Default Memory’ was written as a dedication to the ones I love, both living and passed. It came about around the time I was visiting family in Indonesia… a reminder that memories are never still like a photograph, but constantly oscillating. I was hoping to capture the feeling of dynamic suspension… memories as active objects… orbiting, changing and reflecting each place I’ve ever walked through.”

Greys cover The Velvet Underground’s “Candy Says”

April 25, 2016 11:39 am

Kick your week off right with Greys’ cover of The Velvet Underground’s “Candy Says.” The track is streaming now via NME Magazine.

Frontman Shehzaad Jiwani on the cover: “I got on a huge Velvets kick right before we went into the studio to record Outer Heaven. Their self-titled record was on repeat for me in the van and while walking around Montreal in between studio sessions. The lyrics of ‘Candy Says’ really resonated with me on a personal level, and the feeling of being uncomfortable in your own skin fits with the album’s overarching themes of displacement and detachment. That, and I’ve always wanted to be a crooner.”
