tUnE-yArDs RELEASES NEW SINGLE ‘WATER FOUNTAIN’ & REVEALS ALBUM DETAILS

Due out May 2nd, Nikki Nack - the third album from tUnE-yArDs - was first announced when Merrill Garbus celebrated her birthday by posting a ‘MegaMix’ of album tracks online. Delighting fans, she’s teased everyone long enough and is now ready to reveal more album details.

Experiences in her time off between albums proved to be influential in its songwriting process; a life-affirming trip to Haiti, her upbringing, and finally catching up with 80s kid’s TV programme Pee Wee’s Playhouse some 25 years since its first broadcast were all topics at the forefront of Merrill’s mind that helped to shape and colour the record.

Eager to never stand still, Merrill enlisted producers Malay (Frank Ocean, Alicia Keys, Big Boi) and John Hill (Rihanna, Shakira, M.I.A).

The first track to be heard from the album, ‘Water Fountain’, received its premiere on Lauren Laverne’s BBC 6Music radio show and can now be heard streaming from Merrill’s website, www.tuneyards.com.

FLYING NUN RECORDS RE-ISSUE TWO LIMITED EDITION 12” EPS FOR RECORD STORE DAY

It’s been over three decades since Christchurch record shop employee and music fan, Roger Shepherd was inspired to start a record label as an outlet for South Island bands. And it was the city of Dunedin that quickly became most strongly associated with Flying Nun, and in 1982, four bands from that southern outpost - The ChillsSneaky Feelings, the Stones and the Verlaines – each recorded a side for a double 12″ EP pack, which actually untitled, was referred to as the Dunedin Double.

The Dunedin EP theme also continues with Flying Nun’s other Record Store Day release, the Bored Games - ‘Who Killed Colonel Mustard.’

Released the same year as the Dunedin Double (1982) it introduced the music of a 17-year-old Shayne Carter, who would later go on to form The DoubleHappy’s and Straightjacket Fits. In the tradition of many great bands they formed while attending high school, debuting at the school’s talent contest in 1979 they went on to play a show supporting Toy Love.

As part of the Record Store Day release, the EP has been remastered and includes an insert of previously unseen photos. Limited to 1000 copies.

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‘.
