Acollective (Alcopop! Recs) debut animated video for new single ‘Happiest Of All Memorial Days’

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on June 12, 2014 by E.N.

Acollective (Alcopop! Recs) pangeaAcollective grew up making music together. In their teenage years, the story started in the way that many others do – with kids making a racket in their parents’ basement. It was an open forum to vent frustration. With no real intention of ever being a full time band, in truth only ever really aspiring to exist as a community of musicians, Acollective’s formative years were spent playing not in gig venues (who books a band that doesn’t have any songs?) but springing up at their own guerilla shows on the streets on their hometown, Tel-Aviv. Crowds started forming, more and more gatherings took place and, with a hook-up in the UK, the band’s first ever real tour was put together. In the confines of a London flat, the songs that would later become their debut album (2011’s ‘Onwards’) were penned and fine-tuned. After an unfortunate deportation saga, the band returned to Israel renewed, and full of purpose, ready to commit all they had learned to tape.

Onwards was released in 2011, produced by Chris Shaw, and cemented them as a band to believe in back in Israel – no small task, particularly for an indie band singing in English. Sold out tours around the country beckoned and it wasn’t long before they were playing international shows and festivals, at the likes of Glastonbury, YNOT, and SXSW.

Acollective will readily admit that the transition from basement dwelling art project to international performers, was a little chaotic. They were their own label, their own management, press and booking agency, and it took time for the dust to settle, and for them to find their feet in making Onwards’ follow-up. Their experiences across the world had exposed them to plethora of differing cultures that they felt all needed documenting in some form.

It’s a statement like that, that sets the tone of the album. Pangaea is worldly and wonky, caustic and cohesive, mellow and marauding in equal measure. Acollective could be one of 2014’s most interesting propositions.

Confirmed London shows:

14th July – Birthdays, London
20th July – Brixton Windmill, London

Armand Margjeka Releases His Second Masterpiece, Hummingbird on 6/10

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 29, 2014 by E.N.

Processed with VSCOcam with b5 presetArmand Margjeka captures the essence of the human brain; always thinking, always looking for a new thing. Working with Darrell Thorp (Beck, Outcast) and Chris Steffen (Ben Harper) to produce the upcoming album Hummingbird (June 10,2014)

Hummingbird is a step forward for singer/songwriter and musician, Armand Margjeka. For his second solo album, Margjeka hand-picked 10 songs from his long list of recordings to formHummingbird. This album represents whatever the listen thinks it does. Margjeka said: “I would rather not beat the listener to the punch and omit any possible influence the record might have that I didn’t even intend to bring but let the listener come to their own conclusions without any real guidance.” With a more mature approach than before and the desire to influence, Margjeka portrays his hope to interest and inspire his listeners through his sound and his create-your-own-meaning lyrics  found throughout Hummingbird.

Margjeka was born in Albania and raised on American music. The communist regime he grew up with was oppressive, but somehow a mix tape of American rock’n’roll found its way into his hands. Music videos and tapes of some of his favorite artists taught Margjeka more about the language than what he learned in school.  Armand Margjeka’s sophomore release Hummingbird is slated for a Spring 2014 release via PIPEANDGUN and Communicating Vessels.

Northern American New Single ‘Wander’(Heist or Hit)(Stream)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 11, 2013 by E.N.

Northern AmericanNorthern American
New Single ‘Wander’
Feat B-Side ‘Record Forever’
Out January 20th on Heist or Hit Records

Hailing from Los Angeles, California, brand new indie quartet Northern American describe their music as a picture of the city they live in; “From The Doors to Tupac, we are inspired by the same sunset, Los Angeles; the place that was and always will be.”

As their guileless namesake suggests they don’t have to branch far afield for their wealth of influences. Borrowing elements from peers within the City of Angels – from classics such as The Doors and The Byrds to contemporaries such as Local Natives, Autolux and Letting Up Despite Great Faults – they allow for a glimmering, sun kissed wash of sound to characterise their melodies. An ability to cross state borders is clear too, with a rootless yet methodical exploration in song writing and lucid skill with instrumentation they can clearly join the modern ranks among stateside indie’s finest.

In a pioneering and demonstrative fashion this single displays two tantalizing tracks across both sides. A-Side ‘Wander’ opens with a bass line as smooth as you like, cushioned by additionally satisfying, shimmering, sonic delight. Unshadowed by its predecessor, B-Side ‘Record Forever’ makes itself instantly memorable with lush soundscapes and unpredictable percussion breaks.

These initial tracks were recorded last year as part of 4 track lay down, mixed by Norm Block, formerly of Plexi and now with Sweethead (a devolution of QOTSA and their current main tour support). The tracks were released in L.A. and gained a remarkable response from influential local blogs as well as radio stations, sold-out shows at Silverlake Lounge as well as local festivals. The band then signed a worldwide deal with Heist or Hit Records, whom have previously found success for the likes of Simian Ghost, Dinowalrus, and The Crookes.

Currently in the studio preparing their debut full-length, slated for release next summer, the band have started working with Local Natives producer Raymond Richards – a combination which will surely culminate in a future as bright as LA itself.

Northern American are: Nate Paul, Shane Alch, Bruno Calenda, and Augusto Vega.

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 11, 2013 by E.N.

To give you a taste of what’s to come from the shoegaze darlings, Fonda has released a new single, “Sequence Dream,” and the b-side, “Another New Year’s Eve,” that features a 20-piece string section. The two new tracks, as well as the forthcoming album, were mixed by Raymond Richards (Local Natives, Avid Dancer, Warships).
