ERLAND & THE CARNIVAL SET UP SHOP IN NEW YORK CITY & BOSTON FOR FIRST EVER U.S. DATES AND RELEASE FUJIYA & MIYAGI REMIX!

Erland & The Canival, whose debut stateside EP, “Trouble In Mind,” was released last week on Full Time Hobby/Yep Roc, will soon be arriving on U.S. shores for the first time ever. Erland & The Carnival is guitarist, singer, and former resident of remote Orkney, Scotland, Erland Cooper, guitarist Simon Tong (The Verve, Gorillaz, The Good, The Bad & The Queen) and drummer David Nock (The Orb, Paul McCartney’s The Fireman). As Michael Brodeur of the Boston Globe says, E&TC “made a name busting out surly versions of traditional Scottish and English folk tunes” and finds more of the same “gritty spirit” in their debut EP. Aside from playing their first slew of North American dates, they are also releasing a remix of their song “Echoing Green” by labelmates Fujiya & Miyagi. Be sure to take a listen.

Watch Erland & The Carnival’s “You Don’t Have to Be Lonely” video

“. . . a debut of psychedelic flourishes, pop hooks and melodies that have been the bedrock of folk music for centuries. . . proof of where a combination of knowledge and inspiration can take you.” – Will Hodgkinson, MOJO

“Following the grass-and-daisy-strewn path that Fairport Convention and Pentangle once moseyed, Erland (Cooper) and his Carnival (which includes ex-Verve man Simon Tong), have created a pastoral, psych-tinged slice of loveliness for their debut.” – Tessa Harris, NME

“. . . they have an undeniable allure.” – Kitty Empire, The Observer

“Erland And The Carnival is an exquisite update of the classic folk-rock sound of the late ‘60s, full of dark and lovely covers and originals starring tramps, carnivals, Derby Rams and death. . . it’s the gently psychedelic guitars, keyboards and ghostly harmonies that beguile.” – Garry Mulholland, Q

“Denver synthpoppers the Chain Gang of 1974 played a set full of hopeful ’80s-inspired pop melody and stylish, sinful dance rhythms. They were also the only CMJ act I saw who got a crowd dancing — not swaying or shuffling but dancing. Well done.” — David Marchese, SPIN.com (“SPIN Picks the Best Sets of CMJ”)

“Chain Gang main man Kamtim Mohager gets all ‘80s romance on your ass with some chunky guitar and a chorus that would make doves cry.” – Matthew Schnipper, TheFADER.com

“These songs deserve the boombox-outside-your-crush’s-window treatment.” – Sam Duke, RCRDLBL

NEVER SHOUT NEVER AND THE MAINE LAUNCH “HARMONY” FOOD DRIVE ON CURRENT FALL TOUR

NEVER SHOUT NEVER AND THE MAINE LAUNCH “HARMONY” FOOD DRIVE ON CURRENT FALL TOUR

Burbank, CA – Never Shout Never and The Maine have launched a food drive on their current fall tour.

“This is the time of year where we all start to think more about giving, and those who may be less fortunate,” both bands said in a statement posted on their websites about The Harmony Food Drive. “Both Never Shout Never and The Maine are committed to helping others, not just during the holiday season, but throughout the year. The goal is to donate at least 6,000 pounds of food to various food banks by the end of the tour.”

Both bands are asking that each fan attending the show bring at least one non-perishable canned item with them. Each venue will have a designated area where the cans can be dropped off. After the show, the canned goods will be delivered to a local food bank. If at least 200 pounds of food is donated at each show, the goal of collecting 6,000 pounds total can be met. Never Shout Never and The Maine will each release three live tracks in December as a reward for their fans’ generosity.

Never Shout Never, fronted by 19-year-old Christofer Drew, are touring in support of their new album, Harmony, which was released by Loveway/Sire Records on August 24th. The Maine are supporting their current album Black & White, which was released by Warner Bros. Records on July 13th.

Quinn Marston Releases Debut EP, New DIY Video For Single “Can You Hear Me See Me Now?”

Quinn Marston Releases Debut EP, New DIY Video For Single “Can You Hear Me See Me Now?”

“Quinn Marston is totally idiosyncratic-a unique artist. If you’re tired of all the vague, universalist ‘we are the world’ hogwash that passes for pop songwriting today, give Quinn a listen. She has something to say and it’s worth listening to.” -Brad Tolinski, Guitar World Magazine

“[Quinn’s] music conveys a sense of ragged urgency all-too-often neglected in these digital days… a riot act wrapped in a snappy little ditty that should find favor with fans of Sleater Kinney, early Liz Phair or Dinosaur Jr. if they were fronted by a female.” – My Old Kentucky Blog

Quinn Marston “Can You Hear Me See Me Now?” video

Quinn Marston wants to know: Can You Hear Me See Me Now? The NY-based 20-year-old singer/songwriter’s debut EP is out this week on Ernest Jenning Record Co., and streaming now at AOL Spinner’s Listening Party. In celebration of the release, Quinn is debuting a brand new DIY video for the title track (seen above).

“I knew I wanted to do an animation video. I had gone to the Metropolitan Museum of Art just before making it and that’s what got me thinking about Egyptian and Chinese Dynastic art. The overwhelming nature of a museum that special and big inspired me to put as many ideas into the video as possible. It’s all hand drawn and homemade. It gives me total respect for the animation process and how much work has to go into it.”

In 2009, Marston entered into a collaboration with producer Tom Beaujour, known for his work with such bands as Nada Surf, Right on Dynamite, and The Virgins, and musicians including members of Beaujour’s own acclaimed combo True Love and guitarist Tim Foljahn (Two Dollar Guitar, Thurston Moore, Cat Power).

Together, Marston & Co. have created a short, sharp set of classic jangle-and-crunch alterna-pop. Though undeniably buoyant and hook-happy, songs like “Articulation” and “So High” still carry a bit of an emotional sting born of Quinn’s direct yet intimate lyricism. With the release of Can You Hear Me See Me Now?, she has officially embarked on an amazing journey she can’t help but see as somewhat frightening, thrilling, and fun – just like her music.

LIVE DATES FOR 2010 POSTPONED UNTILL SPRING 2011

Devo Founding Members Mark Mothersbaugh and Gerald Casale Will Still Attend Moogfest in Asheville, NC, to Accept Moog Innovation Award, On October 29th

Burbank, CA – DEVO deeply regret that they have had to postpone all of their upcoming live dates for 2010 due to a serious hand injury sustained by guitarist Bob Mothersbaugh. A glass shard sliced Mothersbaugh’s right thumb to the bone, severing a tendon. He underwent immediate emergency surgery and is expected to make a full recovery after proper care and therapy.

Most of DEVO’s upcoming November tour dates, including Solana Beach’s Belly Up, , Los Angeles’ Club Nokia, and San Francisco’s Warfield Theater, will be rescheduled for next spring and the public will be informed once new dates have been confirmed.

DEVO founding members Mark Mothersbaugh and Gerald Casale will still attend Moogfest on October 29th, in Asheville, NC. As previously announced, DEVO have been awarded the first-ever Moog Innovation Award by Moog Music. The Moog Innovation Award celebrates pioneering artists whose genre-defying work exemplifies the bold, innovative spirit of Bob Moog. Past recipients of the previously titled Moog Award include Keith Emerson, Herb Deutsch, Gershon Kingsley, Jan Hammer, and Bernie Worrell.

YOU SAY PARTY WINS BEST ROCK RECORDING, EMBARKS ON EUROPEAN TOUR

YOU SAY PARTY WINS BEST ROCK RECORDING, EMBARKS ON EUROPEAN TOUR

Western Canadian Music Awards
You Say Party’s XXXX won Rock Recording Of The Year at the 2010 Western Canadian Music Awards, held on Sunday in Kamloops.

“Last night we were caught completely by surprise, winning the “Rock Recording of the Year” award at the West Coast Music Awards,” said the band’s Becky Ninkovic on her Facebook page. “I am so grateful for all of those who have been there for us and supported us along the way, especially this last darker six months. THANK YOU! Today, we leave for Europe and I am more ready than I ever thought I would be. Everything is new. Everything is just beginning. XXXX!!!!”

Lonely’s Lunch Video
Watch for the band’s brilliant new video which was directed by Sean Wainsteim on location in Mumbai coming tomorrow.

Sean Wainsteim says: “The band, whom I’d collaborated with previously on “Monster” shot in Prague, approached me with the notion that they wanted to take their videos in a different direction. Lead singer Becky was less interested in doing performance pieces and more interested in opening up their videos to artistic collaborations – letting filmmakers freely explore a visual pairing to accompany their musical narrative.”

SAVING ABEL’S HEALTHY “SEX” DRIVE LEADS TO THE BAND’S FIFTH CONSECUTIVE HIT

SAVING ABEL’S HEALTHY “SEX” DRIVE LEADS TO THE BAND’S FIFTH CONSECUTIVE HIT

“Sex Is Good” Now Top 10 At Rock Radio
Tour Dates With Hinder Begin On November 29th

New York, NY — From the group that got everyone “Addicted” Saving Abel have returned with another sexually charged hit with “Sex Is Good.” The song is currently sitting at #10 on the Rock charts and is continuing to fly up the charts.

The irony that the song, which is now a Top 10 hit at rock radio has become the band’s second stab at blunt sexual honestly isn’t lost on lead singer Jared Weeks.

“Every night playing live I always ask the crowd if they would be surprised if Saving Abel had wrote another song about sex, cause we all know that ‘addicted’ isn’t really a song for Sunday school. And the reaction is always a good one. ‘Sex Is Good’ is kinda of a story of a bad boy gone even worse! But the important message in the song is about the honesty. Seriously, think about how many times in our lives that we have all been those relationships where the bed room is the only ounce of excitement some of us have, thus out comes the truth! We have all said it at one point another….. That’s right, I’m not in Love but the SEX is good.”

Saving Abel’s latest album, MISS AMERICA, the quintet’s follow up to their gold-certified self-titled debut entered the Billboard album chart at #24 the week of it’s release this past summer. The lead single “Stupid Girl (Only In Hollywood)” became the band’s fourth hit at rock radio and the group performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live (ABC) on August 2nd.

The quintet continues their current world tour which has, over the past several months, touched down in India, Qatar, Kuwait, and Iraq (via a USO / Armed Forces Entertainment tour of the Persian Gulf), extensively across the U.S., and in the middle of the Pacific Ocean aboard the USS Carl Vinson as the vessel returned from Haiti. Saving Abel, will hit the road as direct support for Hinder beginning November 29th in Dallas, TX.

The current itinerary includes performances in:

10/30 – Guavaween – Ybor City, FL
11/13 – Robinsonville, MS – Horseshoe Hotel & Casino (Better Life Foundation Show)
11/29 – The Palladium Ballroom – Dallas, TX*
