TEETH & TONGUE ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM ‘GRIDS’ AND RELEASE NEW VIDEO

Teeth & Tongue return with sophmore album Grids out on 21st March 2014 via Dot Dash / Remote Control.

“Every time I make an album I swear it’s going to be a quick, easy, straightforward affair, but that doesn’t ever seem to happen. When I came back from the USA at the end of 2012, I had a bunch of new songs that I’d written for the tour and wanted to demo properly.  AJ Bradford and I had some mutual friends and he had a nice studio so I went in there for a few days to track a demo of ‘Good Man’”, says Jess Cornelius.

“Somehow that demo turned into the beginning of this new album, although it would take an entire year before we got close to finishing it”.

“I was extremely lucky with the people involved too: Marc Regueiro-Mckelvie and Damian Sullivan from the live band both play a lot on the album, and we had Laura Jean and Peter Luscombe play on a couple of tracks, as well as Tim O’Connor from Ballads”.

Teeth & Tongue is the music project of New Zealand born, Melbourne-based musician Jess Cornelius. In 2011 Teeth & Tongue released second album Tambourine though Dot Dash/Remote Control. The Age gave it four stars, The Vine called it “One of the best Australian releases this year”, and the first single ‘Unfamiliar Skirts’ earned an EG Awards nomination for song of the year.

Premiered today by The Vine, ‘Newborn’ is the second single taken from Grids.

Words by Matthew Cribb, Director
“The idea was mostly a kind of re-engineering of Groove Armada’s 1999 video for “I See You Baby (alternate version)”. Instead of unnecessarily over-sexualized women, we used buffed up dudes pumping weights and showcasing their muscles. We went in with only a minimal amount of visual imagery we wanted to re-create, but beyond that it was largely a collaborative effort with virtually everyone on set involved”

Grids Track-listing:
1. Good Man
2. More Than This
3. Newborn
4. I Feel Good
5. Easy Living
6. Boredom
7. Going South
8. The Party Is You
9. Today

SASKWATCH SIGN WITH REMOTE CONTROL RECORDS FOR NEW ALBUM NOSE DIVE

Every band has a story, but few can say they have gone from busking on the streets to gracing the stage at Glastonbury in just four years. Saskwatch, however, are the exception to the rule. It was at Melbourne’s notorious Cherry Bar that the 9-piece cut their teeth and established their reputation as one of Australia’s most electrifying live acts.

Today Remote Control Records is thrilled to announce the signing of Saskwatch to its current Australian roster which includes Courtney Barnett, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Teeth & Tongue, Sunbeam Sound Machine, Dirty Three, Mick Turner, Midnight Juggernauts, Miami Horror & many more.

After the astounding success of the bands most recent single ’Hands’, which received significant triple j& community radio airplay in the closing months of 2013, Saskwatch are back with new single ‘Born To Break Your Heart’ and the announcement of the release of their sophomore album Nose Dive in April this year.

Premiered by Richard Kingsmill on his 2014 program last night ‘Born To Break Your Heart’ is a down tempo slow burning ballad with a hook that traps itself inside your mind with ease. Of the new single trumpet player, guitarist & main songwriter Liam McGorry says “We recorded BTBYH with Magoo in his converted church studio Applewood Lane in Fernvale QLD, it’s about a darker side of relationships and losing control.”

Saskwatch’s second LP Nose Dive will be released via Northside Records / Remote Control on Friday 11th April 2014, more details on the record will follow in the coming weeks including an intriguing video clip for ‘Born To Break Your Heart‘. In the meantime the band will hit the road playing a bunch of special festival appearances over the coming months including WOMADelaidePanama FestivalBluesfest Byron Bay.
