Following the release of lead single “Home,” we are excited to share the new single “Painful Like” from Austra’s forthcoming album Olympia out June 18 on Domino.

Influenced by early Chicago house music when dance music was performed with a live band, “Painful Like” too was performed live in the studio free of any programming or loops. While the lyrics may deal with the disillusionment of growing up gay in a small town and finding solace in the arms of a lover, it’s bubbly and buoyant and reflects that Olympia is fundamentally a dance record.

Stream the new single “Painful Like”

Principal songwriter/vocalist Katie Stelmanis says that was the band’s aim all along. “We are really into dense harmonies and big beautiful melodies, but I also love techno and dance music. I wanted to bring those elements together.” Founding Detroit techno producer Kevin Saunderson recently remixed lead single “Home “ and it will appear on a forthcoming “Home” remixes 12″ backed with a remix from Ital.

Stream Kevin Saunderson and Ital’s remixes of “Home”

Olympia is also an album of transformation. Though it has only been two years since their 2010 debut Feel It Break, After three years of non-stop international touring with the likes of the XX, Grimes and the Gossip, when it came time to record Olympia, Austra had evolved into a complex collaborative effort between its members.

Olympia is available to pre-order now via Domino (Rest of the world) and Paper Bag (in Canada) on CD, limited edition double colored vinyl, standard double vinyl and digitally via iTunes. All pre-orders through Domino or Paper Bag will receive an instant mp3 download of the Home single and the six track Austra + Gina X ‘Mayan Drums’ 12” collaboration released earlier this month for Record Store Day.

Austra have sold out release week shows in New York, London, Paris, and Berlin have announced new headlining shows in those cities including September 22 at Webster Hall in New York.

Austra is Katie Stelmanis, Maya Postepski and Dorian Thornton, in collaboration with Ryan Wonsiak, Sari Lightman and Romy Lightman.

The Luyas set to tour with Julian Lynch & release Paper Bag Sessions

Montreal’s The Luyas are set to tour Canada and the United States with Julian Lynch in support of 2012’s acclaimed album Animator. Lynch will sit in with The Luyas who will return the favour by morphing into his band during his performance. A full list of dates can be found below.

“The cool thing about this tour is that we’ll all get to play twice,” says the band’s Jessie Stein. “The Luyas are going to be Julian’s band and he will be sitting in on our set. It will be great to get to play twice every night, and stretch out a bit musically. Julian’s music is so patient and layered and beautiful. We are really excited to share these stages with him.”

Watch The Luyas perform ‘Chanelling’ in The Antler’s Minus Green Lab Studio in New York City here as part of the Paper Bag Sessions.

Recorded and produced at the Treatment Room by band member and experimental brass player Pietro Amato and mixed by Jace Lasek of the Besnard Lakes at his Breakglass Studios in the band’s hometown of Montreal, Animator is a cathartic sophisticated collection of songs. As melodically compelling as it is artistically rich, Animator is intuitive, seductive, moody and textural. It slowly unfolds its beauty and trusts the listener to stay with it.

Just as dance pioneer Loïe Fuller, whose image graces the album cover, beguiled the world with the Dance Serpentine, the songs on Animator have a hypnotic effect. Sarah Neufeld and Amato’s arrangements of string and horn float throughout, fragile and fleeting. Stein’s gentle vocals have an eerie insular feel. Mathieu Charbonneau and Mark Wheaton’s rhythm section put you in a trance. Fleets of strange noises dot the horizon. Like Portishead or the Silver Apples, the Luyasexist in the world to communicate something original yet fundamentally relatable without resorting to nostalgia.

The band’s riveting live show has been charming fans since the release of 2011’s Too Beautiful To Work, and they’ve toured the world with the likes of the Antlers, the Dodos and Blonde Redhead. The Luyas are ascending a trajectory of artistic vision and creativity, and asking if we, too, are curious.

Stereophonics return to the US for tour dates

One of the most durable and consistently successful bands ever to come out of the U.K. band scene, Stereophonics return to the U.S. August 20th with the release of their chart topping U.K. album Graffiti on the Train; their eighth studio album, out on their own Stylus Records.

Released earlier this year in the U.K., Graffiti on the Train entered the U.K. charts at number 3 and has remained in the Top 20 ever since. Affirming that this is their best album in a decade, the album has quickly gone gold and is well on its way to platinum status.

Written by lead vocalist and guitarist Kelly Jones and produced by Kelly Jones and Jim Lowe, Graffiti on the Train is the final piece in the puzzle for a newly refined and cinematic Stereophonics, a band that has London’s Sunday Times calling this album their “least conventional yet”, praising its “newfound lightness of touch” and confirming “The album contains Jones’s best work of his career.”

A storyteller first and foremost Kelly Jones unravels storylines and sketches characters with poetic finesse – inspired by the screenplay he has been working on of the same name, Graffiti On A Train is a fascinating, filmic LP unlike anything the group have attempted in the past. Loosely telling the story of two friends who flee the country after a tragic accident, the record is both reflective and surprisingly fragile.

We find Jones at the helm of all the videos from this album, which he has both written and directed including the first U.S. single, ‘Indian Summer.’ Upon release in the U.K. earlier this year, ‘Indian Summer’marked the band’s 26th Top 40 hit on the U.K. charts.

As one of the best live bands imported from the U.K. in the last twenty years, North America will be treated to select tour dates and an Indian Summer to be remembered. At a recent U.K. show, John Earls of the Daily Star noted, “Girls sat on their boyfriends shoulders, Welsh flags were held aloft, beer was thrown everywhere and the singalongs kept coming.”

Having spanned decades of success selling over 9 million career albums and currently sitting at the top of U.K. album charts, this return to the other side of the pond is a tour not to be missed. Their U.S. tour kicks off in Philadelphia on September 19 at Union Transfer. See below for complete tour itinerary.

Stereophonics are: Kelly Jones- vocals/guitar, Richard Jones-bass, Adam Zindani -guitar and Jamie Morrison – drums.

The Wild Feathers To Tour With Willie Nelson, Debut Album Out 8/6

The Wild Feathers will be heading out with the legendary Willie Nelson this summer. The west coast run, which kicks off August 13th in Las Vegas, NV, will support the August 6th release of the band’s self-titled debut album. First single “The Ceiling” is heading toward the Top 15 at AAA radio. Watch the video for the “The Ceiling” here:

The Wild Feathers are a truly American band: their music takes elements of the best of rock, country, folk and blues music and reshapes it in a way that is both unique and modern. Ricky Young, Joel King, Taylor Burns, Preston Wimberly and Ben Dumas grew up steeped in music; playing solo gigs, touring with local bands and working at venues. The guys came together in Austin in 2010 through coincidence, mutual friends, and a shared love of the classics: Petty, Dylan, Cash, The Band, Allman Bros, Graham Parsons and Neil Young. The young band spent the next year writing and defining their sound before heading into the studio to record with producer Jay Joyce (Cage the Elephant, Emmylou Harris).

Now based in Nashville, The Wild Feathers have spent little time at home this year: they’ve joined country’s Kip Moore, opened for Bob Dylan, played Hangout and Sasquatch festivals and are currently on the road with Ryan Bingham. Full tour dates are below.

They Might Be Giants On Tour Through Fall, Perform LIVE On ‘Jimmy Fallon’

Brooklyn’s original alternative rockers, They Might Be Giants, have made a valiant return to the US after their recent stint though Australia and New Zealand. The band will take over North American stages once again on a massive 35-date tour in support of their deliriously catchy new studio album, Nanobots. The tour includes a “Celebrate Brooklyn” hometown show as well as stops in Los Angeles, Des Moines, Kansas City, Boise, Seattle, DC & Vancouver.

Fans that are not able to make it out to a show can experience the band’s explosive live rendition of their hit “Istanbul” on NBC’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

Nanobots features 45 memorable minutes of electrifying pop melodies, vivid lyrics and just enough bass-clarinet. Check out the trippy, animated video for single “Insect Hospital +” by Hine Mizushima HERE.

Nanobots is available at all digital & physical retailers via Idlewild Recordings, and marks the debut offering through the band’s new distributor Megaforce Records. Known for recording numerous themes – most notably The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and the GRAMMY-winning Malcolm In the Middle theme – the band has 2 platinum albums, 2 gold albums and have been nominated for 3 GRAMMYs, winning two. Revered for their energized live show and love of the road, catch the band live on tour!

“Perfect pop music can come from anywhere and can go anywhere. They Might Be Giants have demonstrated this for a quarter century…”
– The New Yorker

“Catch them if you can — their live shows always deliver.”
– USA Today

“catchy pop heroics mixed with jingle-length songlets”
– Rolling Stone

“’You’re On Fire” is a catchy and surprisingly toothy power-pop gem”
– Stereogum

“ …echoes Squeeze or their beloved XTC, exploits some pretty dramatic dynamic shifts, and takes a quite literal interpretation of the common idiom.“

“[Centipede Hz] captures the sound of studio wizards who are once again ready to unleash some sweaty savagery on the live stage.” – NPR

Today marks the release of Animal Collective’s Monkey Been To Burn Town remix EP on Domino Records. Drawing from the band’s latest record Centipede Hz, the EP features remixes of “Monkey Riches” by Gang Gang Dance’s Brian Degraw, Chicago Juke producer Traxman and New York underground dance producers Teengirl Fantasy, as well as a remix of “New Town Burnout” by Seattle based hip-hop collective Shabazz Palaces. In honor of the EP’s release, Animal Collective has made Traxman’s remix of “Monkey Riches” available for stream.

Animal Collective is also happy to announce new additional tour dates to the upcoming North American tour. In addition to previously announced dates, Animal Collective will also be performing new dates in Los Angeles, Boise, and Phoenix. The band has also added two new festival appearances, including Treasure Island in San Francisco, and a headlining spot at MusicFest NW in Portland, OR. These shows come in addition to the band’s previously announced festival appearances at Bonnaroo, Governors Ball, Forecastle, and more.

Filmed in conjunction with The Creators Project, the videos catch the band’s impressive stage show, which was aptly described by Pitchfork as “giant, gap-toothed Nickelodeon dentures on either side, a curved inflatable structure that resembled scorpion tails dipped in PAAS dye, a centralized TV running constant, blaring images. Basically, the cover of Centipede Hz gone widescreen.”

Earlier in 2012, Animal Collective released their 10th and latest album Centipede Hz. The band’s first record since 2007’s Strawberry Jam to feature all four original band members, Avey Tare, Panda Bear, Geologist and Deakin, Centipede Hz was hailed by critics as a return to Animal Collective’s experimental roots. The album can be ordered via the Animal Collective webstore here.

Alpine’s debut album out TODAY + tour dates


“Floaty vocals and sparkly-sounding pop compositions that are a real breath of fresh air.”—NYLON

“…some of the most engaging female/male dual harmonizing heard in recent epochs.”—LA Weekly

A Is For Alpine, the debut album from lauded Australian band Alpine, is available now on Votiv. The new release, which was recently chosen as iTunes’ Australian Alternative Album of the Year, has received early critical praise from KCRW, with Pitchfork calling it an “unforgettably light and charismatic gem.” The album recently streamed in its entirety on and the latest video for the track “Gasoline” premiered on as a “First Watch”

To celebrate the release, the band will support Spanish rockers Crystal Fighters on a U.S. run beginning in June in addition to an opening slot for Grouplove at Celebrate Brooklyn on June 13. Since forming, Alpine have toured extensively with the likes of Kimbra, Sia, Cloud Control, The Naked And Famous and Matt Corby. Additionally, the band wrapped their first U.S. tour in March including a stop at SXSW 2013 and has appeared at various festivals worldwide including Splendour In The Grass, Southbound and Falls Festival. See reverse for tour routing.

Alpine is Phoebe Baker and Lou James (dual vocals), Christian O’Brien (guitar), Ryan Lamb (bass), Tim Royall (keys) and Phil Tucker (drums). The new album was recorded in Melbourne with producer Dann Hume who helped the band experiment with sounds and textures. Of the record Lamb notes, “We wanted to represent the different sides of our music, so there’s some sad moments, some dancey moments, some rocking out and lots of harmonies.” No strangers to the benefits of shared ideas and the collaborative process, Alpine’s own methods for song writing reflect the strong and respectful working relationship they had with Hume. Baker describes the new album as the band’s “innocent and not so innocent explorations through our twenty-something emotions.”

Director Christopher Mills (Interpol, Modest Mouse, BSS) had this to say about working with Inlet Sound:”YOUNGHEARTS is about an emerging band with an abstract idea and a whole lot of chutzpa. We follow the band, as they pool the few dollars and pennies they have between them, in order to hire a boat to take them to a strange place, thenback home again, only to be faced with the same reality many foraging musicians face – hunger for more. The video came together blazingly fast, shooting handheld out of a convertible on a hand-numbing day, and on the roof of a boat on Toronto Harbour. This was a fun project full of luck and good times.”

Michael Wexler from Inlet Sound said: “From the moment we found out that we’d be shooting a video with Chris Mills, we were all as giddy as a bunch of five year olds in line for the ice-cream truck. We loved his work on videos for Modest Mouse, The Acorn and The Joy Formidable among others for quite some time. The best part of this whole process was how easy-going Chris made the shoot day feel, despite numerous freezing locations and time crunches. We were also super blessed to have our dear friend Brendan Lynch work his organizational magic on the production side of the video. We worked into the wee hours of the night, shooting on green screen and stuffing our faces with delicious sandwiches, only to go home full bellied and excited to see Chris’ animated wizardry unfold. Et voila!”
