WARPAINT ANNOUNCE SECOND ALBUM + STREAM NEW SINGLE ‘LOVE IS TO DIE’

Rough Trade & Remote Control Records are excited to announce the full details of WARPAINT’s new self-titled album, set for release in Australia on Friday 17th January 2014. WARPAINT is the follow-up to the LA four-piece’s critically acclaimed debut album The Fool (2010).

The first single to be taken from WARPAINT is ‘Love Is To Die’, available to listen to in full here:

The album is available to pre-order now from iTunes HERE and album buyers will receive an instant grat of ‘Love Is To Die’.

WARPAINT is a Los Angeles based quartet comprised of Emily Kokal (vocals/guitar), Jenny Lee Lindberg (bass/vocals), Theresa Wayman (guitar/vocals), and Stella Mozgawa (drums). To say that this follow-up is “highly anticipated” is an understatement considering the reception that their debut received when it was released at the end of 2010, and the excitement at their recent sold-out shows in New York and LA. They are currently also featured in a Calvin Klein jeans campaign which has received 2 million views via the youtube ad alone. CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE CALVIN KLEIN CAMPAIGN

Warpaint was co-produced by Warpaint and Flood (PJ Harvey, Sigur Ros, New Order, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds and Foals), and mixed by Flood and Nigel Godrich (Radiohead). The album was conceived after some writing and recording sessions that took place in The Joshua Tree late last year. Here the band was joined by visionary director Chris Cunningham who has partnered with them for many of the album visuals including the cover. He has spent the past two years filming and photographing the band as they made Warpaint.

EMILIANA TORRINI ANNOUNCES NEW ALBUM ‘TOOKAH’

‘Tookah’ is Emiliana Torrini’s fourth album and follows 2008’s fantastically received ‘Me And Armini’. It sees Emiliana back in the studio with her long-term producer / collaborator Dan Carey. As well as Emiliana’s three previous albums the pair co-wrote and produced Kylie Minogue’s Grammy award-nominated track ‘Slow’ which went straight to number 1 upon release. ‘Jungle Drum’ from Emiliana’s last album ‘Me And Armini’ also charted at number 1 in several countries including Germany where it stayed for 9 weeks.

The first single to be taken from ‘Tookah’ is ‘Speed of Dark’, which you can listen to HERE.

Of the album Emiliana says:

“For me the first album was learning to write songs, the second was working on my own melodies and lyrics and the last album ‘Me and Armini’ was about learning to let go. With this record, it’s much more about the exploration of sonics and visual landscaping in order to find my own sound. I am a craftswoman and for me this record has been about Dan (Carey) and I evolving and going on a sound journey.“

‘Tookah’ is a made up name or word, which I connected with in a very deep and blissful way. It is the core of you, the you when you were born before life decorated you like a Christmas tree with all your baggage. It is what connects us with everyone and everything. It is what the Sufis spin for. It is the sudden thankfulness you feel when doing nothing in particular, where everything is gently perfect for a moment. Some call it god. I call mine ‘Tookah’.”

‘Tookah’ by Emiliana Torrini will be release by Rough Trade/Remote Control in Australia on the 6th September 2013

HOUNDMOUTH ANNOUNCE DEBUT ALBUM & SINGLE

Houndmouth will release their anticipated debut album From Hills Below The City on Friday 31 May via Rough Trade / Remote Control.

Listen to ‘On The Road’, the first single to be taken from the album:

Houndmouth is comprised of four musicians from New Albany, Indiana US, across the river from Louisville – hence From the Hills Below the City. Matt Myers (guitar/vocals), Katie Toupin (keyboard/vocals), Zak Appleby (bass/vocals) and Shane Cody (drums/vocals) spent the past yearbuilding a passionate following in their hometown and touring with the Alabama Shakes, the Lumineers, Grace Potter, and the Drive-By Truckers. “Houndmouth is a great young band,” testifies Patterson Hood of the Truckers. “They ‘brought it’ each and every night. They were extremely popular with our fanbase and our band. I look forward to hearing what they do next”.

The 12 original songs on From The Hills Below the City are packed with tales of down-on-their-luck drug runners, casinos,riverboats, recession-era scraping, and more. All members of Houndmouth sing, “leading with individual character and harmonizing in saloon-choir empathy,” writes Rolling Stone’s David Fricke, and their songs have a loose-limbed swing, anchored by a sturdy rhythm and a cagey melodic sensibility.

Houndmounth’s appearance at SXSW resulted in national coverage on NBC Rock Center, Fuse News, and Rolling Stone.

Watch Houndmouth perform new single ‘On The Road’ for Paste Magazine Riverview Sessions at SXSW 2013 HERE.
