Race Banyon / Lontalius remix MADEIRA’s “Manipulator”

November 17, 2016 11:59 am

Race Banyon / Lontalius gave MADEIRA’s track “Manipulator” the remix treatment. Head over to Dummy to stream the breezy new mix. “Manipulator” is taken from MADEIRA’s debut EP Bad Humors, released earlier this year.

“Stylistically, it mixes the breezy, head-over-shoulder vocal delivery MADEIRA’s known for, with raindrop synth melodies and the clockwork rhythm style fellow New Zealand producer Race Banyon (bka Lontalius) deployed earlier in the year on this collaboration with DJ Dahi and Ty Dolla $ign. The end result is an affecting piece of work that nonchalantly looks backward before charging forward.”

Catch MADEIRA on her homecoming tour this month!

Sad13’s “Slugger” out today!

November 11, 2016 10:34 am

“I wanted to make songs that were the opposite of ‘Genie in A Bottle’ or ‘The Boy Is Mine.’ Songs that put affirmative consent at the heart of the subject matter and emphasize friendship among women and try to deescalate the toxic jealousy and ownership that are often centered in romantic pop songs.” — Sadie Dupuis

Slugger is eleven tracks of unapologetic fun, fusing synth melodies with smooth guitar riffs. After Sadie moved to Philadelphia in early 2016, Slugger quickly began to take shape: “I wrote and played and recorded almost all of it in the two weeks I was subletting a friend’s tiny bedroom,” she says. Fittingly, directness, self-determinism, and intimacy are the bedrocks of Slugger’s overall tone. Sadie maintains her dignified wit even in less-than-ideal entanglements, as on the album’s opening track, “<2,” styled to resemble the level of affection of which a heart is capable when it’s been twisted out of shape. “I’m in less than two with you,” sings Dupuis, her crystalline voice steadfastly delicate and assured, recalling self-proprietary forebears like Liz Phair and Fiona Apple.

Sad13’s debut record Slugger is officially out today! Pick up a copy on the Carpark shopiTunes or in a record store near you. The album is also streaming now via Spotify and Apple Music. Stop by select retail stores and receive limited edition Sad13 sticker sheets with the purchase of Slugger, while supplies last.

“modern act” music video

November 9, 2016 11:20 am

Watch Cloud Nothings jam out on a sandy beach in the afterlife in their new music video for “Modern Act.” You can check it out via The AV Club: “The video sees the band covered in makeup, taking on elderly versions that are followed around menacingly by a makeshift grim reaper. After the hoodie-wearing angel of death picks them off one-by-one, the band is reunited in the afterlife, jamming out on a sandy beach in the afterlife. Check out the video below, and see the band live, presumably without bloodthirsty specter chasing them, in the following cities.”

“Modern Act” is taken from Cloud Nothings’ forthcoming record Life Without Sound, out January 27th, 2017. You can pre-order a copy on the Carpark shop or iTunes.

sad13’s “slugger” streaming now!

November 3, 2016 11:19 am

“Sadie Dupuis has earned a reputation for her dynamic, literary lyrics and the way they regularly toggle between knotty linguistic wordplay and knife-twisting one-liners that cut straight to the bone. Yet she writes with considered purpose: Regardless of whether she’s ruminating over her vulnerabilities, revealing personal details of past toxic relationships or lifting people up with ferocious rallying cries, Dupuis doesn’t mince her words. Even amid the fizzy pop embellishments that make Slugger so infectiously fun to listen to, Sad13 is thankfully as unapologetic and vital a voice as ever.”

Head over to NPR Music to stream Sad13’s debut Slugger a week early! Album out next Friday. Pre-orders
still available on the Carpark shop and iTunes.
