Lava La Rue takes to the streets of West London with new single 'TLSL'. The track is the cut from her upcoming mixtape EP 'Stitches' released on the 18th September. The video for 'TLSL' was shot and edited by Lava and close friend Daniela Montiero over the course of two days. Watch above.

Lava on TLSL:

“All the locations you see in the video are significant spots to me growing up around London. I literally just told my girl Dani that imma invite our friends to chill for the weekend and she just captured what we were up to, because she’s part of our circle it was like a perfect fly on the wall perspective."

"I mean, a lot of the people in the video didn’t even know we were making a music video till after its that candid…overall I feel like the whole song and video simply reflects on what I’ve been up to this summer between all the hustles/shows and my feelings to just keep going with a positive mindset despite any losses…hence the title: Take an L, Smoke an L (TLSL)..."

BLUE HAWAII 'OPEN REDUCTION INTERNAL FIXATION' OUT 11TH OCTOBER 2019 (DOMINO PUBLISHING)

Blue Hawaii 'Open Reduction Internal Fixation'
GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE

Blue Hawaii return with their fourth studio album 'Open Reduction Internal Fixation' out 11th October via Arbutus Records, to mark the announcement they have released the track 'All That Blue', watch above. 

Spanning genres as diverse as trance, acoustic, UK garage, trip-hop and house, its core elements are lighthearted and groovy. But oddly, “Open Reduction Internal Fixation” was born out of unfortunate circumstance. The duo were scheduled to tour through Southeast Asia & Japan in Autumn ’18 but plans changed suddenly when Agor smashed up his heel in Germany. Instead of the tour, he came back to Montreal for treatment - hence the title - “Open Reduction Internal Fixation”, the foot surgery he received.

Ra was going through her own challenges at this time, being on the heel end of a messy breakup - the kind where you almost get married and spend your life together only to find everything torched to ashes. Much like the surgery, that emotional rollercoaster also left her feeling torn open and fixated. The remedy: hit the club and make a record that makes you scream in joy at the speakers. Agor and Ra connected during their recovery periods, and through their different pains the tunes came together naturally, a healing through fun and friendship. Tied together with signature diva vocals, dreamy tones and liquid beats, “Open Reduction Internal Fixation” is the living proof of turning a bummer situation into a golden opportunity.

Blue Hawaii is a two person electronic project consisting of Ra and Ag, who met doing parties and shows in Montreal and continue to create together despite living in separate cities - split between Montreal and Berlin. “Open Reduction Internal Fixation” is their fourth LP and continues the thread of dreamy electronic pop and dance floor playability.

LOWER DENS 'GALAPAGOS' OUT 20TH AUGUST 2019 (DOMINO ALL-IN)

DOMINO PUBLISHING
Lower Dens 'Galapagos'
GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE

Four years since their critically acclaimed album, Escape From Evil, Lower Dens recently announced their newest creation -- The Competition -- which will be released on Ribbon Music on September 6th.  Lower Dens share a third taste of the album in the form of a glistening, synth-pop careen called “Galapagos.” Listen above.

Lower Dens also recently announced they will be hitting the road upon the album’s release supporting Of Monsters And Men in addition to three very special release shows in Los Angeles and Baltimore respectively.  All dates are below.

The Competition is a pop album with a concept both emotionally and politically urgent. By design, competition is the driving force of modern capitalism, and the title is lead singer and songwriter Jana Hunter’s (pronouns: they/them, him/his) term for a socio-psychological phenomenon this generates, a kind of psychosis that accelerates our insecurities and anxieties to the point of total overload, corroding our intimacies, our communities, and our senses of self.

Hunter says, “The issues that have shaped my life, for better or for worse, have to do with coming from a family and a culture that totally bought into this competitive mindset.  I was wild and in a lot of pain as a kid; home life was very bleak, and pop songs were a guaranteed escape to a mental space where beauty, wonder, and love were possible.  I wanted to write songs that might have the potential to do that.”

Indeed, The Competition might be Hunter’s most vulnerable, hook-filled album yet, a leftfield, resistance pop record that could only be released in 2019.

MICHAELA ANNE 'DESERT DOVE' OUT 27TH SEPTEMBER 2019 (DOMINO PUBLISHING/YEP ROC)

DOMINO PUBLISHING
Michaela Anne 'Desert Dove'
GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE
 
Michaela Anne is proud to debut 'By Our Design', the single is the newest from her upcoming album Desert Dove, out September 27th on Yep Roc Records. Watch the video above.
 
Recorded over the course of several weeks in San Clemente, California, Desert Dove was completed “on location” with the help of an all-star cast. Producers Sam Outlaw and Delta Spirit’s Kelly Winrich assembled guitarist Brian Whelan (Dwight Yoakam, Jim Lauderdale), fiddler Kristin Weber (Kacey Musgraves, Margo Price), and drummers Mark Stepro (Ben Kweller, Butch Walker) and Daniel Bailey (Everest, Father John Misty) to address this batch of songs with a fresh take, not leaning too hard on traditional arrangements or instrumentation. “Child of the Wind” is a great example of this; using a chunky, fuzzy electric guitar in place of what could have been a pedal steel or fiddle intro, adding sonic and tonal variables to the breadth of Michaela Anne’s range of characters and motifs.
 
Amidst the ups and downs of Desert Dove, there is a recurring focus on the emotions that fall in between peaks and valleys. “This record, for me, highlights the gray area, the nuance of emotional life and relationships that seems to be harder to convey in today’s modes of communication and limited attention spans: short excerpts on Instagram or Twitter paragraphs,” says Michaela Anne. “Nothing is black and white, solely good or bad. Who we are, how we live, how we love, what we desire or reject, it’s all full of contradictions and confusions. I wanted to explore that through my songs with care, depth, reality as well as light-heartedness, fun and fantasy.”
 
Michaela Anne also attacks most of the album with a sharp feminine perspective, dealing out wisdom, confidence, and sass with authority and maturity that is never tiresome. The easiest example of this is Michaela Anne’s light-hearted rebuttal to condescension and “mansplaining” with “If I Wanted Your Opinion,” but her stance drives deeper with each new song, all the way through the end of Desert Dove. “When I got to Nashville, I was told the ‘rules’ of songwriting,” Michaela recounts. “I was informed that a woman in a country song can never be the victim, but she can also never be the perpetrator. That’s not real life. As a woman, sometimes you’re everything all at once, and I wanted to write about those real experiences.”

Jack Klatt has announced the release of his eagerly awaited new album. IT AIN'T THE SAME arrives everywhere via Yep Roc Records on Friday, September 27. It Ain't the Same is preceded by the premiere of a raucous new single "Prove My Love"; the track is joined by an equally rockin' companion video, co-starring Minneapolis-based artist Alberta Mirais, watch above.

"'Prove My Love' is a pure and simple rock n' roll song about the push and pull of romance," says Klatt. "What beer way to visually capture the joy and chaos of love then two people dancing together? We shot the video on the night of the summer solstice at a fabrication shop that I work at in North East Minneapolis
when I'm not on the road. It was a hot night and many beverages were consumed while me and Alberta Mirais danced the night into day. I couldn't dream of doing something like this with anyone but her. She is most assuredly the star of the show."

Hailed by Rift Magazine for "great songs with witty lyrics" and "one helluva guitarist to boot," Klatt will herald IT AIN'T THE SAME with an array of upcoming live dates, beginning with an August run alongside Parker Millsap and then followed in September by a series of dates supporting Pokey LaFarge.

London based producer and DJ O’Flynn has announced his debut album ‘Aletheia’, to be released 6th September 2019 on Silver Bear Recordings, and shared the second single ‘Painted Wolf’, out 21st June 2019. Listen to Painted Wolf above. 

His latest release follows a series of acclaimedproductions which explored his wide-ranging style:from squelchy acid on Ninja Tune to loose and luscious jazz on Blip Discs, as well as the high-octane 12” released on his own Hundred Flowers imprint earlier this year. With his new single O’Flynn honesin on the expansive electronica style found on his previous 12” single, ‘Sunspear’. Continuing his recontextualisation of evocative world music samples combinedwith layers of percussion, O’Flynn builds a fluid but powerful energy on heady club cut ‘Painted Wolf’. Painted Wolf has been 4 years in the making. The longest I've ever taken to finish an idea. It was probably my follow up to Desmond’s Empire in terms of style. This is my attempt to deliver something new to the world."

With standout 12” debuts ‘Tyrion’ and ‘Desmond’s Empire’ in 2015, O’Flynn quickly established his reputation as “one of dance music’s most prosperous newcomers”, as put by Boiler Room. Having gained support from Four Tet, Gilles Peterson, Bonobo, Denis Sulta, James Blake and Hessle Audio and his debut album forthcoming, he continues his musical evolution to become a resonant force within dance music.

After a highly successful summer touring the UK with Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Alice Jemima has just announced an autumn 2019 release for her second album, ‘Everything Changes’ and revealed a new single video for  ‘Dancing In Love’, which she co-wrote with Sophie Ellis Bextor and producer Simon Byrt. Watch the video above.

Alice’s new uplifting single ‘Dancing in Love’, is the second track to be revealed from her much anticipated second album. ‘Dancing In Love’  has an upbeat disco theme with retro synths and funk-infused basslines overlaid by Alice’s sugar -sweet, sultry vocals. The video for ‘Dancing In Love’ stars Alice and is a sequined,  disco-ball themed affair filmed in a karaoke bar in London, where Alice is surrounded by fun party goers. 

In her own words Alice describes her new single ‘Dancing in Love’ as “…being about falling in love, and the push and pull of the relationship resembling a dance. Since the release of my debut album two years ago, I’ve moved out of my parent’s home and now share a flat with my boyfriend and so I think this record, like most of the tracks on my new album, reflects a more mature view of love and relationships.”

Black Midi announce their debut album 'Schlagenheim' out 21st June 2019 via Rough Trade Records. This release follows a string of single releases 'Talking Heads' and' Crows Perch', a sold out US tour and being named 'the “best band in London” nobody knows a thing about?' [NME]. Watch the video for Crow's Perch above. 

The album is scratchy, intense and discordant with roaring riffs, locked in rhythm section and a truly unique vocal make black midi stand head and shoulders above all in 2019. black midi - Georgie Greep (vocals / guitar), Matt Kwasniewski-Kelvin (vocals / guitar), Cameron Picton (vocals / bass), and Morgan Simpson (drums) - have a dynamic energy, playing as a musical unit that’s constantly in a state of flux and development. They bonded over shared musical enthusiasms, or "liking messed up things" as Kwasniewski-Kelvin puts it, including an appreciation for rapper Danny Brown, Death Grips, Deerhoof, Miles Davis and Talking Heads.

Schlagenheim was recorded with Speedy Wunderground producer Dan Carey, who the band praises for his quick, unfussy approach. black midi laid down eight of the record’s nine tracks in just five days. The process was one of refining and rebuilding tracks around the initial structures. Five hour jams would sometimes yield a riff that then became a few bars of a song.

Inspired by teaching songwriting in two southern California area women’s prisons, Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter Eleni Mandell will release Wake Up Again June 7, on Yep Roc Records. Watch the Inara George directed video for 'Circumstance' above. 

 “Circumstance was inspired by two different women. Neither accepted responsibility for what lead to their incarceration. One said, “it just happened.” The other woman claimed that it was all her boyfriend’s fault. The word ‘circumstance’ comes from ‘around’ and ‘stand’, which I thought applied so well to life in prison, which requires a lot of standing around.”

For nearly two years, through Jail Guitar Doors, the organization founded by MC5’s Wayne Kramer and Billy Bragg, and the William James AssociationMandell “loved working with the inmates, hearing their stories and seeing them light up when they heard their words come to life in a song.” 

Produced by Sheldon Gomberg at his Silver Lake studio, the album features 11 original compositions with Mandell on vocals and acoustic guitar, Milo Jones (guitar), Ryan Feves (bass), and Kevin Fitzgerald (drums).

Cate Le Bon has shared the latest video from her album 'Reward' released on 24th May via Mexican Summer. Watch above. 

The video for “Home To You” was made in Košice, Slovakia in collaboration with residents of Lunik IX neighbourhood. It was directed by visual artist and filmmaker Phil Collins, who had previously worked in the city in 2013, and is co-produced with Kino Úsmev. Kino Úsmev's new educational initiative is aimed at establishing connections between young people from Lunik IX and other parts of the city through filmmaking workshops, practical production and public presentation of resulting works.

Reward (2019): 'It was on a mountainside in Cumbria that the first whispers of Cate Le Bon’s fifth studio album poked their buds above the earth. “There’s a strange romanticism to going a little bit crazy and playing the piano to yourself and singing into the night,” she says, recounting the year living solitarily in the Lake District which gave way to Reward. By day, ever the polymath, Le Bon painstakingly learnt to make solid wood tables, stools and chairs from scratch; by night she looked to a second-hand Meers — the first piano she had ever owned —for company, “windows closed to absolutely everyone”, and accidentally poured her heart out. The result is an album every bit as stylistically varied, surrealistically-inclined and tactile as those in the enduring outsider’s back catalogue, but one that is also intensely introspective and profound; her most personal to date.'

GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE

Girl Band are happy to announce their new album “The Talkies” releasing through Rough Trade Records on September 27th, 2019. This is the follow up to their debut album “Holding Hands with Jamie” that came out four years ago. Watch the Bob Gallagher directed video for Shoulderblades above.

“The Talkies” was recorded in November 2018 at Ballintubbert House, a stately home on the outskirts of Dublin “a few pay grades above what we’re used to”. The alien construction of Ballintubbert and its corridors help to navigate Girl Bands cataclysmic sound within a world of its own.

Bandmember Alan Duggan underlines this thought: “In many ways the idea behind the album was to make an audio representation of the house” -Daniel continues - “We recorded all the drums twice: once on the landing and once in the cellar, and during production we could actually cut in between both these sounds.” The first track to be released from the album is Shoulderblades. Sonically, the landscape vacillates from a dissonant, distant horizon to a threatening “shh!” in your ear. The dark vocal line groove loops back on itself, building an unsettling momentum, caught up by the chugging snare with the ascending / descending snakes and ladders noise rock guitar that is so distinctively Girl Band.
