“In their second installment of Room 205, garage wizards Ty Segall & White Fence unleash a tangle of snarling guitars and spirited rhythms in this exceptional live performance of “I AM NOT A GAME. To match the euphoric cacophony of “I AM NOT A GAME,” director Michael Reich and editor Forrest Borie fed the session’s raw live footage through an abused analog video mixer.”

“After a three-year break, the extraordinary Karima Francis returns June 4th with stunning new single ‘Wherever I Go’, new LP ‘The Remedy’ – out August 6th on Mercury – and an eagerly anticipated spring UK tour.”

“The instrumental foundation of Night Verses have been playing together for over seven years. In 2009 after prior projects didn’t work out, Nick, Reilly and Aric recorded several instrumental tracks in hopes of finding the right singer and frontman. While living in Los Angeles in 2010, Douglas Robinson (formerly of The Sleeping) had the opportunity to see the trio play together.”

Fixers is releasing their first US EP, Pop Meat/Your Corruptor, on April 24th via Dolphin Love Records. In celebration of the release, they’re giving away “Crystals” as a free MP3, and sharing its kaleidoscopic/mind-bending video along with it.”

“With 4 weeks to the release of their dramatic and diverse second record ‘A Monument’, out May 7th on City Slang, Portland quartet Tu Fawning have uploaded a surreal new video for their single ‘Anchor’. ‘Anchor’ is a crystalline pop gem… a dark opal, reflecting a whole spectrum of colours upon its dark body.”

“Witness the recording of the latest Quintron album, Sucre du Sauvage (“Sugar of the Savage”). From January 29th through May 2nd of 2010, Quintron punched a time clock and reported to work at NOMA to write and record this album in a public gallery space. During the final seven days of the session, the artist imprisoned himself within the museum and its surrounding grounds—a beautiful swampy nature preserve called New Orleans City Park. He roamed the park by night making field recordings and then weaved them into the final mixes of the album by day. The week concluded with a blindfolded listening party in the NOMA auditorium.”

“ATP Recordings are pleased to announce the release of the second single (double A-side) from Tennis‘ fantastically received second album ‘Young & Old’. The release will be on 7″ vinyl picture disc limited to 500 copies , as well as digital download.”

“Slovenia’s Elvis Jackson have just released their new single, This Time. Scoring radio play from Kerrang! Radio, Q Radio, Total Rock and the BBC, it was released during their sell-out 13 date UK tour of March 2012. Now, the band is happy to reveal a brand new video for the track.”

Jesca Hoop is set to release of Born To, the first single from her new album The House That Jack Built, on June 11th. Reflecting the album’s central themes – life and death, sex and war, head and heart – Born To asks the question – “how is it that I was born into the circumstances I was born into. How is it some of us are born into famine and others into unimaginable wealth?”. The lead track from The House That Jack Built and very much a statement of intent, Born To is a tempestuous, moodily melodic opener.”

Gary Stewart’s ‘Year and a Day’ EP takes you right back to likes of Neil Young’s ‘Harvest’ and early Joan Baez whilst remaining contemporary alongside modern folk breakthroughs such as Laura Marling and Momford and Sons. Scottish born Gary combines all the traditional aspects of folk with his own unique freshness and tenderness.”
