Premiere: Fire and the Romance – Rescue

By Will Oliver, July 23rd 2014

Fire and the Romance

Fire and the Romance is the project of New York native Dion Roy. Earlier in the year, Roy caught my attention with his larger than life cut “Way Down Below”, and we have since been waiting for more.

With the release date of his debut album Adaptations looming, Dion has shared “Rescue” the very pleasant first single off the record. “Rescue” is an easy on the ears hybrid of electronic sounds and a pop-minded chorus. His gentle vocals are more than welcoming, soaring higher and higher as the song builds towards unstoppable heights.

Adaptations will be released on August 26, and is now available for pre-order. In the meantime, enjoy the exclusive premiere stream of “Rescue”, which I’ve shared below.

Eric Frisch

Earlier in the year New York City singer-songwriter Eric Frisch released his debut (self-produced) full-length entitled Goodbye Birdcage. Eric’s sound combines elements of 50s and 60s pop music with a modern touch, creating a unique call to the past while still pushing forward into unchartered territory.

He’s released a music video for one of the album highlights “Learn To Swim” The video, which was directed by Stephen Tonti features a reflective Frisch playing the song alone in a studio, offering various clips of him playing the song. It’s a simple, yet effective approach to the lovely folk song that has a familiarity about it that makes it feel like a classic song that you always knew was there, but just needed a friendly reminder.

We have the exclusive premiere of the video, which you can watch below.

The Hydrothermal Vents

The Hydrothermal Vents are a duo out of Montreal consisting of John Tielli and Tessa Kautzman. On July 5 they will release their new album Secrets of the Deep! We are honored to be the ones who premiere that LP’s most recent single, the self-titled cut “The Hydrothermal Vents.”

The band was drawn together by a mutual love of the Pixies, an influence which, along with other post-punk bands such as the Talking Heads that helped shape their sound. You can hear these influences for sure on the title track, with a passionate and moody atmosphere delivered by powerfully distinctive vocal interplay. Imagine if David Bowie and (early) Arcade Fire finally recorded together, that is what you would get with The Hydrothermal Vents. Loads of textures and emotive vocals that create rich unforgettable imagery, always a sign of a good song at work.

Find the track below and be on the lookout for the record when it comes out on July 5.

Premiere: Hospital – Revelation

By Will Oliver, May 6th 2014

Hospital -  Revelation


Last year Russian band Hospital caught my attention in a big way, with their track “Lust For You” ending up as one of my favorite tracks of the entire year.

Now the band has since returned with a new single titled “Revelation.” It was produced and mixed by Jim Greer, who worked with Foster The People on their debut album Torches. He’s worked his magic on Hospital, who have released a bright and shimmering song with “Revelation”, a hopeful track even if the lyrical content is less so.

We have the honor of premiering the stream of the new single. It’s available for you to enjoy below.

Baby Baby

Atlanta, Georgia rockers Baby Baby recently released their new album Big Boy Baller Club via Gospel Of Rhythm Recordings.

Today we have the exclusive premiere of the music video for single “You Can’t Spell Conch Without The ‘CH’.” The fun track gets a video that is something of a mixture of Lost and Lord Of The Flies. Or as they put it, “BABY BABY vs. villainous prep school kids and a toxic punk pig man on deserted Mystery Island.”

It was directed by Torey Haas and shot on location at Jekyll Island, Georgia.

Big Boy Baller Club is available to purchase over at iTunes and bandcamp. Watch the video below.

Premiere: Strangeheart – Strangeheart

By Will Oliver, April 15th 2014

Strangeheart

L.A. electronic indie-pop act Strangeheart are gearing up the release for their anticipated debut album A Common Theme, which will be released on May 6 (iTunes).

Last year we posted the band’s highly enjoyable debut single “In Another Life” and here we are a year later with the exclusive premiere of “Strangeheart”, the (self-titled) first single off the album.

The band layer on the synths and pile on the hooks. causing a shimmering burst of energy that just takes you over while listening. There’s the pop elegance of Empire Of The Sun found in the chorus, along with the live instrumentation of acts like Passion Pit, which separates Strangeheart from the rest of the pack. They’re the real deal, and this track is as enjoyable as one you’ll find today, or any day.

We are happy to premiere the stream of “Strangeheart”, which you can listen to below.

Premiere: The Honey Trees – By The River

By Will Oliver, April 8th 2014

The Honey Trees

The Honey Trees are California duo Becky Filip and Jacob Wick. Today marks the release of their debut album Bright Fire. It’s a big day for them, as the album has been in the works for four years. With just one listen to their music you can immediately tell that they take careful consideration into the making of their music. Especially in this day in age, where everyone is in an arms race to maintain buzz. It’s amazing that a band is still willing to take that much time to release their album

“By The River” is a track off the album and I have the honor or premiering it right here with you today.

Part of it is grand, the other part intimate. The big sweeping strings take you far upwards towards the heavens, while the heart-wrenching vocals of Becky Filip keep you grounded at a more natural beauty. It’s the type of songs that transports you to a special place, where this kind of magic not only exists, but thrives.

Enjoy “By The River” below, and head here to purchase the album if you like what you hear.

King Of Prussia

After a trip to Barcelona, King Of Prussia’s Brandon Hanick returned as a new man of sorts. The time he spent there resulted in 20 songs that the band turned into a double album that is titled Zonian Girls…And The Echoes That Surround Us All. The album comes out April 8th and will be the band’s first release on Minty Fresh.

The album has binding elements at work, with half the album’s songs representing the lighter side of the human psyche (love, joy..) with the other half representing the darker elements (the loss of love). Each light song is complimented by its own darker take, going as far as being bound together by related arrangements and melodies.

Recording began in Barcelona late in 2012, continued on in France, and finished in their native Athens, Georgia. The album features contributions from over 20 musicians, including Patrick Burke and members of The B-52s and Elf Power.

Today, along with the album announcement, we have the honor of premiering the album’s first single “Actuary.” One listen and the delightful tracks swarms you with lovely harmonies and kind vocals that are sure to make your day that much better. It’s a stunner and it’s available to listen for the first time right here.

The band also have a east coast tour lined up for March/April, beginning in Athens March 27 and ending in Atlanta April 19th. Find those dates shared below after the stream of “Actuary.”

PREMIERE: The Pass – Without Saying

By Will Oliver, February 5th 2014 — with 2 comments

The Pass - Without Saying

2014 is a big year for many of us, but it’s a extremely busy one for The Pass. If you’ve been following the Louisville, Kentucky band, you know just how busy they’ve been. Since January, they’ve been releasing single after single via sonaBLAST! Records, all a part of a major singles collection that will lead to their new album, the follow-up to Melt, which is due out in the summer. All of the singles come coated in different colored vinyl, fitted in a full color jacket.

I have the honor of premiering their latest single, the glorious “Without Saying.” It’s the mesmerizing a-side (“Never Compromise” is the b-side) and for good reason. The band continuously make natural slides of development expanding their pallete for a widescreen synth-pop sound. “Without Saying” is a balanced act that is as easy to describe as smooth and chill, when your not too busy dancing around helplessly along with it. There are some incredible psych breakdowns towards the end that prove that yet again, The Pass have new tricks up their sleeves to keep them one of the most interesting bands out there.

Enjoy “Without Saying” below, it’s fantastic.

You can purchase the entire bundle of singles from The Pass right here. Find The Pass on Facebook and Twitter.
