The Peach Kings Announce New York City +Free Download

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on August 30, 2012 by E.N.

The Peach Kings, Texan Paige McClain Wood and Californian Steven Trezevant Dies, are set to release their new EP Handsome Moves in September 6, 2012 and in celebration are playing 3 special shows in New York City.
They describe their sound as “gypsydelic,” which is just what it sounds like. Stemming from their inability to choose one genre of music to play, they coined the term in order to reflect their own personal view of the band. “Gypsy-” because they were inspired by playing outdoors and “-delic” because it contains just a hint of strange.  Paige and Steven are strongly influenced by visuals in cinema and fashion. In fact, Drew Barrymore discovered their music and selected them to be a part of her Spring Music Preview spread for V Magazine, alongside the likes ofMayer Hawthorne, M83, Spank Rock, Warpaint, and The Drums.
The duo fill the gap between upbeat rock and downtempo electronic, with comparisons being made to The Black Keys, Mazzy Star and The XX. Similarities can also be drawn to Little Dragon, and how they do so much with so little. They draw their sound and inspiration from the smoky smooth crackle of blues, folk, and soul vinyls as well as the hypodermic tones synthesized in various beat laboratories across the globe. Stripped down, The Peach Kings’ power is derived from Paige’s hauntingly sensual vocals combined with Steven’s complementary rhythm and picking.
Sexy is a word used often in describing The Peach Kings sound. The EP features the intoxicating lead single “Fisherman” to the sultry “Like A Stone” and the sweet sounds of “Lonely”. The EP in its entirety has a lot of found sounds that were salvaged from the delirious recordings of giddy musicians with really expensive gear.
It’s been a long time goal for the Peach Kings to press a record on vinyl, as they want themselves and their families to have an artifact that can be found in a crate 50 years from now. Not only that, but in 50 years, that piece of music, like a fine wine, will have gathered all the character and noise that makes vinyl so nostalgic and timeless.

The EP artwork for Handsome Moves was created by Shane A. Richard, a musically inspired artist from California. The Peach Kings are large supporters of their local art scene, with a strong belief in building an artistic community around themselves. Look out for the upcoming video for “Fisherman,” directed by Jace Armstrong, and old friend of Steven’s from Silver Lake.

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 1, 2012 by E.N.

M ss ng p eces in collaboration with Matthew Dear present the Beams album trailer. You will find a dancer, a poet, a trumpet player and mainstay Ghostly visual artist and designer Michael Cina painting Dear’s portrait for the cover of Beams. This is the third time Matthew Dear and m ss ng p eces have joined forces.

Meanwhile, “Her Fantasy,” the highly praised lead single from Beams continues to be embraced. Recently, director Tommy O’Haver shared his self-described “mash-up” homage to Avant Garde filmmaker Kenneth Anger in his video for “Her Fantasy”. Poolside now slows “Her Fantasy” down to a cool breeze with their tantalizing remix.

Matthew is also confirmed to appear for Boiler Room in their breakfast show, next Tuesday 8th August. Tune in live at 10am to watch his set.

Matthew Dear announces new album ‘Beams'; debuts new track(Stream)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , on May 30, 2012 by E.N.

Matthew Dear Announces Details for Upcoming Album, Beams;
Offers Lead Track “Her Fantasy”

Released on 27th August (Ghostly International)

Matthew Dear, the relentless songwriter, producer and collaborator, offered an early taste of what to expect from Beams with the well-received EP, Headcage, in January of this year. The highlights were working with other producers (Van Rivers & The Subliminal Kid) and vocalists (Johnny from The Drums) which lent Headcage an openness and poise.

Recorded in Dear’s home studio and mixed at Nicolas Vernhes’ Rare Book Room studios in Brooklyn, Beams evokes a day-lit dreamworld at once strange and familiar. While the album’s dancefloor-ready tempos, major keys, and sun-warmed synths signal Beams as the lighter, brighter response to its predecessor, closer inspection reveals a squirming mass of oddball details. Dear’s latest productions creak and groan like anxious organisms, with slivers of guitar, electric bass, and drum kit darting in and out among the synths and samples.

Early on in Matthew Dear’s Beams— the New York-based artist’s fourth full-length, his first since 2010’s shadowy masterpiece Black City— something strange happens. A thick-fingered electric bass gallops in atop a driving backbeat as Dear sneers, “It’s alright to be someone else sometimes.” It may be odd to hear former techno-wunderkind Matthew Dear playing rock music, but the manic punk pulse of “Earthforms” is just one facet of Beams’ kaleidoscopic journey. Shot through with equal parts optimism and uneasiness, Beams is the latest transmission from one of pop music’s most fascinating creative minds.

Beams’ lyrics, meanwhile, are deeply personal, expressing vulnerability and confusion in startlingly immediate ways. “Do I feel love like all of the others or is this feeling only mine?” Dear sings on the strutting lead-off single “Her Fantasy“, later wondering “Am I one heartbeat away from receiving a damaging shock to my life?” Dear has grown into his songwriting voice, and he wears his current lyrical perspective—that of a man with something to lose—with an impressive grace.

When all is said and done, the central tension in Matthew Dear’s Beams— musical mischief vs. lyrical maturity—may not be a tension at all. After all, growing up involves learning to integrate all of one’s disparate selves. “I’m about 4 to 5 different people at any given time,” Dear says. “By allowing all of those different personalities to exist… the most pure and direct self can come through in the music. [The songs] may still be cryptic, and full of contradictions—but in my opinion, that is pure, unadulterated thought in musical form. They are direct lines to the center.”

In other words, Beams. Beams is slated for an August 27th (EU/UK) & 28th (North America) release date.

Today, Matthew offers “Her Fantasy”—the celebratory lead single from said album. If Beams is the sound of Matthew Dear waking up after the long, dark night of Black City, then “Her Fantasy” is the sun’s first rays, peaking over the horizon.  Opening with a head-turning whistle-and-cowbell rhythm, “Her Fantasy” signals Beams’ queasy optimism in classic Matthew Dear avant-pop form—that is, without verses and choruses per se, but by hustling through a series of wickedly catchy sections whose twisted internal logic becomes clear as the song progresses. The track builds to an ecstatic climax, in which Dear’s exhortation to “Sit where you stand / hand on your heart / hand on your man” is gradually engulfed in a cloud of treble-tickling distortion.

TRACKLIST:

01. Her Fantasy
02. Earthforms
03. Headcage
04. Fighting Is Futile
05. Up & Out
06. Overtime

French Horn Rebellion release debut album

The Infinite Music Of French Horn Rebellion
 
Announce US tour supporting Yelle and SXSW

“Next big thing…Electro” New York Times
 “Irresistible, panting synth-pop, with fat new wave key tones and ecstatic vocals.” Pitchfork
“A roller-coaster ride of an album that is as uplifting as it is beguiling” Q Magazine
“Warp speed eclectic” Time Out London
Listen To “This Moment” HERE

and album sampler with “Brasilia Girl”, “The Body Electric”
and “Broken Heart” HERE 
 
French Horn Rebellion (Robert and David Perlick-Molinari) kick off 2011 by announcing the US self-release of their debut album The Infinite Music of French Horn Rebellion on April 19th digitally and May 24th physically (Once Upon A Time Records), an Asian date with MGMT, a stop at Austin’s SXSW and a 27 date North American tour supporting French electro pop outfit Yelle starting 17th April.
 
Written, produced and mixed by Robert and David,‘The Infinite Music…’ is a debut album thatwarps the fabric of dance, electro, rock and funk and may just turn out to be a contender for this year’s most ambitious, multi-faceted and engaging debut album. Crucially, the album also follows an intergalactic narrative that tracks the physical and emotional journey of an unknown French Horn player. “There is a story running through the album, it’s about the Universe. We’re pretty clear on what the story is, but what you take away from it may be something entirely different,” says David.
 
The album’s artwork features the sculptures of Portland based artist Meredith Dittmar (www.corporatepig.com) who the band contacted after finding her work on the Internet. Dittmar has exhibited in New York and as far afield as, Mexico City and Istanbul.
 
On the back of just three EP’s to date, these two unassuming brothers, originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, have already toured and played with the likes of Hot Chip, Sleigh Bells, The Drums, Cut Copy andSebastiAn and have been tipped by everyone from Q Magazine, The Guardian, Time Out and French music bible Les Inrockuptibles to hometown publications such as The New York Times and NY Daily News.
 
The Brooklyn-based duo already had an illustrious pedigree; David produced MGMT’s indie release, Time to Pretend EP for New York indie Cantora Records, and with previous single “Up All Night” they scored a Record of the Week on BBC Radio 1 and an opening slot on the influential Kitsuné Maison compilation series; a big deal for a virtual unknown. The band have also remixed the likes of MEN, Two Door Cinema Club, OMD and Alex Winston, the later resulting in JPlatt of New York producers du jour The Knocks madly tweeting “its like the hottest thing I’ve ever heard”!
 
Following packed out NYC performances at CMJ, the Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival and in support to MNDR at the launch of new Neon Gold / Popjustice party POPSHOP, FHR will visit Europe in March for a handful of shows before heading home to play SXSW and then on to Asia for shows in Hong Kong (w/ MGMT), China, Korea and Japan. Their 27 date North American tour supporting Yelle kicks off in Phoenix on 17th April.
