Dent May premieres new track

July 20, 2016 1:18 pm

After releasing three albums on our sub-label Paw Tracks, Dent May is back with “Face Down In The Gutter Of Your Love.” Stream the track via Gorilla vs. Bear.

“‘Face Down in the Gutter of Your Love’ is everything we love about vintage Dent, blending his smooth AOR-disco stylings and romantic yacht rock sentimentality with a darker, yearning side of his signature light-hearted wit, making for a wistful, heartfelt love song…”

Snag your copy of the track on the Carpark shop or iTunes.

Carpark signs MADEIRA, announces Bad Humors + shares first single

July 7, 2016 12:31 pm

We are very pleased to welcome MADEIRA to Carpark family!  After touring the world with Yumi Zouma, the group she co-founded, Kim Pflaum left the band and moved to the seaside city of Auckland, New Zealand. The transition gave her plenty to write about. Pflaum started writing songs as MADEIRA, a solo project that began years earlier. Her new 5-track EP, Bad Humors, is out September 23rd. Stream the first single, “Manipulator,” via The Fader.

Pre-order the EP today on the Carpark shop or iTunes and receive an instant download of “Manipulator.” The LP version will be available as a limited pressing on violet vinyl.

The EP’s title comes from the ancient medical practice of bloodletting, which was a method of draining blood with the intent that bad feelings, emotions, “humors,” would also leave the body. Pflaum noticed this procedure mirrored the process of making the MADEIRA songs. “I created these songs to make sense of the painful experiences they deal with,” Pflaum says. “By completing and releasing the songs, I feel I am somewhat ridding myself of what has been
ailing me, letting go.”
