the lines’ “hull down” out now

May 13, 2016 4:10 pm

Acute Records is excited to present our latest and final release, the “lost” third album by The Lines, hull down. After the release of their cult-classic singles, EPs, and LPs (compiled on Acute’s Memory Span and Flood Bank releases), The Lines continued to record, first in a series of home experiments and then in William Orbit’s Guerilla Studios. Unfortunately, these recordings were never finalized as band members began to drift apart. You can order your copy of the record today on the Carpark shop or iTunes. Thanks for listening!

“Some find The Lines tapping into embryonic ‘80s pop currents, notably the sleek New Order-ish disco-rocker ‘Single Engine Duster.’ But the more interesting pieces stand outside genre or era, like the crepuscular sci-fi lullaby ‘Archway’, with its tumbling chimes and luxuriant Eno-esque otherness…” – Uncut

Speedy Ortiz share second single from “Foiled Again”

May 13, 2016 12:41 pm

Speedy Ortiz shared the second single from their forthcoming EP Foiled Again. The track is the first of two remixes of their previously released “Puffer” which features Lizzo & Doomtree’s Lazerbeak. Stream it now via Earmilk.

Sadie Dupuis on the track: “I was really into the album Lizzobangers, so we hit up Lizzo and Lazerbeak about collaborating in some way, even though we hadn’t met IRL. After this remix was in the works, Speedy toured with Doomtree (who taught Mike [Speedy’s drummer] how to shotgun a beer), and Lizzo and I wrote and recorded the song ‘Basement Queens’ together in December. So in a way this remix was the catalyst for that tour as well as the song.”

Foiled Again is out June 3rd. Pre-orders are available now in the Carpark shop and iTunes.

Young Magic’s “Still Life” out today!

May 13, 2016 10:14 am

Still Life is a deeply personal and idiosyncratic record, somewhere close to the enchanted electronic pop realms occupied by Björk and Broadcast, yet unique to Young Magic. Found sounds and textures feature prominently across Still Life, including the Javanese gamelan, blossoming into ecstatic bursts during the climax of “Lucien.” Melati grounds the textured sonic world with arrows direct to the heart, like the arresting “How Wonderful” where the singer overflows with regret for “all those things I never said.” This is as deeply personal as the group has ever been.

The record is officially out today! Pick up a copy on the Carpark shopiTunes or in a record store near you. The album is also streaming via [Spotify] and Apple Music. Stop by select retail stores and receive limited edition Young Magic stickers with the purchase of Still Life, while supplies last.

“The London band had shared a stage with The Cure, Bauhaus and Birthday Party, but never received the shine they deserved, pre-empting an obsession with post-punk and primitive dance music, but languishing in obscurity.”

Head over to FACT and stream The Lines’ new record, hull down, album out this Friday. Pre-orders are available now on the Carpark shop and iTunes.

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.”

2. Puffer feat. Lizzo (Lazerbeak Remix)
3. Emma O
4. Puffer (Open Mike Eagle Remix)
