Introducing Empress Of










Introducing, Lorely Rodriguez, who goes by the moniker Empress Of.
The New York based artist has announced her brand new track ‘Water Water’.

The killer track follows last year’s ‘Realize You’ and is taken from her debut record, which she produced and wrote entirely herself, out this summer on Terrible Records / Remote Control Records.

The story behind ‘Water Water’ is a captivating one… It’s New Years Eve and Lorely is by herself in the village of Valle de Bravo (which means Valley of the Brave) in Mexico. She’s 5 weeks into a formative writing retreat and alone on the lake with a pile of fireworks and thinking about water – the water around her, the water she can drink and the water she can’t drink and ‘Water Water’, the song she was working on that day as time slowly passed into the new year – a year she would markedly spend making her debut album.

In anticipation of her first full-length release, Empress Of will bring her unique blend of deeply personal yet incredibly celebratory dance music to the stage for supporting shows with Jamie xx and Jon Hopkins and Florence & The Machine this spring.  Additionally, she’ll return to the festival stage for performances at The Great Escape and London Calling, and starting two weeks from today, she will be hosting a five-nights-straight live residency at NYC venue Elvis Guesthouse. Each night supported by a to-be-announced cast of notable artist friends and creative collaborators, contributing DJ sets and just maybe even a couple spontaneous live sets.

Teeth & Tongue shares new song ‘Cupcake’

t& t










Teeth & Tongue are back! After spending two months in Iceland at Nes Artist Residency Jess Cornelius has shared a brand new single. Originally recorded in Melbourne, ‘Cupcake’ was a bit of a trans-atlantic affair.

The killer video was filmed around Iceland and premiered today by our pals at FasterLouder.

“The recording needed vocals and a few extra bits, but by that point I was in Skagastrond surrounded by miles of ice and snow, and my shared concrete work space wasn’t really appropriate for recording. I did a call-out to the Icelandic villagers for foam and cardboard, and managed to build a really ugly-looking vocal booth, then took over the residency assistant’s office for a few days to track the vocals and synths. Jade recorded her backing vocals at home in Melbourne and sent them to me in Skagastrond, and I sent the whole lot back to Melbourne to Gareth Parton for mixing”.

Catch Jess and the band supporting Courtney Barnett across Australia!

Screen shot 2015-03-27 at 4.47.47 PM

The Gizz never stop! They have premiered the video for ‘The River’ via Q Magazine this week.

The song comes off their new record Quarters out Friday 1st May.

Their forthcoming LP Quarters isn’t just a normal release, creative freedom prevails as The Gizz present to us a 12” record containing only four songs, each 10 minutes and 10 seconds long, accompanied by brilliant artwork created by long-time collaborator Jason Galea – a painting of four different worlds melding together.

Quarters will be released on limited edition vinyl. The cover is a 4-way design hand painted by Jason Galea printed on 350 gsm reverse board sleeve with gold foil font. The wax is 180-200 gram gold vinyl placed in 12′ black poly lined bags. Deluxe.


The National share a new song and announce ‘A Lot Of Sorrow’ boxset

the national

ICYMI… In 2013, The National collaborated with an Icelandic artist Ragnar Kjartansson on A Lot of Sorrow, a durational performance presented as part of MoMA PS1’s Sunday Sessions.

Kjartansson, who often uses repetitive performance to explore collective experience and emotion, invited The National to play their three-minute, twenty-five second song “Sorrow” live on stage, repeatedly and continuously, for six hours. This incredible feat of endurance has become legendary, and the audio recording of the performance will be released as a limited edition 1,500 run vinyl boxed set by 4AD / Remote Control.

The box set is $150 and all profits will be donated to Partners in Health, an organisation dedicated to improve the health of impoverished people worldwide. Purchasing vinyl and helping the world = win win!

The band have also shared a new single called ‘Sunshine On My Back’ which you can get for free if you purchase their documentary ‘Mistaken For Strangers’ here.

Listen to the gorgeous song here.
