Cloud Nothings announces “Life Without Sound” + shares first single

October 12, 2016 10:30 am

We are beyond excited to announce that Cloud Nothings is back with the follow up to 2014’s Here And Nowhere Else. The new full-length, Life Without Sound, will arrive January 27th, 2017. Stream the first single from the album, “Modern Act,” via Pitchfork.

“Generally, it seems like my work has been about finding my place in the world,” Baldi says. “But there was a point in which I realized that you can be missing something important in your life, a part you didn’t realize you were missing until it’s there—hence the title. This record is like my version of new age music,” he adds. “It’s supposed to be inspiring.”
It is.

Pre-orders are available everywhere. Order now and receive the first
single “Modern Act” instantly.

Deluxe LPs will be pressed on limited edition green marble-colored
vinyl and include one of three special edition posters. Deluxe LPs are available via Carpark Records (US) and Wichita Recordings (UK) and on release date at your favorite local independent record store.

Skylar Spence releases single “Faithfully”

October 10, 2016 1:53 pm

A new Skyar Spence track premiered today! Head over to The Fader to stream his dreamy
new song “Faithfully.”

Ryan DeRobertis on the track: “The main vocal sample is from Aretha Franklin’s ”Wonderful,” a song that I sampled a few years ago in my song, “Mr. Wonderful,” which is pretty ebullient and braggadocios by nature,” he said. “I think this song is in stark contrast with “Mr. Wonderful”—when I was making it I pictured two people catching each other’s eyes on a subway. Maybe one of them’s married. The point is, there’s nothing between them besides that fleeting, spontaneous chemistry that’s led many to Craigslist’s missed connections. So this song’s kind of about missed connections. Also, I’d like to stress that it’s an older tune I really wanted to release, and it’s neither a track from my forthcoming material, nor a hint of what’s to come!”

Brett remixes MADEIRA’s “Come On Thru”

October 10, 2016 11:16 am

New Zealand’s MADEIRA has shared a remix of her gauzy single “Come On Thru” by Washington, DC dream pop outfit Brett.

“[The remix] is inspired by early Weatherall and Oakenfold productions, as well as the textures found on the Moodhut and Future Times labels. The dance mix builds to a grooving bass line which compliments the soaring melodies of the original.” — Mike Coogan (of Brett)

The original “Come On Thru” can be found on MADEIRA’s debut EP Bad Humors, which is out now on Carpark Records. You can pick up a physical copy of the release on the shop or digitally via iTunes.

Having made her debut US performances in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Washington, DC, MADEIRA plays New York City for the very first time tonight at Brooklyn’s Manhattan Inn — don’t miss out. Tickets available here.

Greys release surprise album “Warm Shadow”

October 5, 2016 10:51 am

We are extremely happy to announce that Greys are back with a new album. Surprise! Warm Shadow is a companion piece to Greys’ acclaimed sophomore album, Outer Heaven, comprised of original material as well as elements from that album’s recording sessions at Hotel 2 Tango in Montreal. Penning new songs, manipulating tape drones created from various studio experiments and rearranging old favourites, Warm Shadow‘s intent is to create a parallel world which illuminates the dynamic contrasts that reside on Outer Heaven and within Greys themselves. Read more about it + check out an exclusive interview via Stereogum.

Warm Shadow is available on Bandcamp as a “Pay-What-You-Can” download. All proceeds go to Sistering. Sistering is a trans-inclusive agency supporting women from across Toronto who experience first hand the impact of marginalization and poverty. They may be homeless, or are at risk of becoming homeless. They are a diverse group, from 16 to 80-plus years old: women with substance use or mental health issues; sex workers; women who have interactions with the criminal justice system; women who have experienced, or are experiencing, trauma and violence; immigrant and refugee women; women with health issues and disabilities; and women without legal status.

Cassettes are also available on the Carpark shop.
