HAIM To Release Highly Anticipated Debut On September 30 via Columbia Records

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on August 6, 2013 by dk

haim days are goneBreakout band HAIM will release their highly anticipated debut album, Days Are Gone, on September 30 via Columbia Records. , available today for pre-order on iTunes (iTunes.com/HAIM). Recorded mostly in HAIM’s native Los Angeles, the album sees sisters Este, Danielle and Alana Haim working alongside acclaimed producers Ariel Rechtshaid (Usher, Vampire Weekend) and James Ford (Florence and the Machine, Arctic Monkeys). Days Are Gone will feature crowd favorites “Falling,” “Forever,” and “Don’t Save Me” as well as brand new tracks that have yet to air live, including title track “Days Are Gone,” which was co-written with Kid Harpoon and Jessie Ware (see below for full track listing).

“The Wire,” the first single from Days Are Gone, is available now on iTunes. Fans who pre-order the album on iTunes will instantly receive a download of the track “The Wire” (iTunes.com/HAIM). Already a live favorite, Fader observes, “the track’s final studio incarnation wisely emphasizes what HAIM does so well live, with ‘We Will Rock You’-styled drums, shades of guitar theatrics and a triumphant, everybody-together-now vocal medley.” MTV Buzzworthy has proclaimed the infectious track a “monster of a song: huge, hooky and ready to wreck major cities and/or pop charts,” and Pitchfork concludes that HAIM are “making some of the best power-pop out there right now.” A music video for “The Wire” will be released shortly.

The full track listing for Days are Gone is as follows:

1. Falling
2. Forever
3. The Wire
4. If I Could Change Your Mind
5. Honey & I
6. Don’t Save Me
7. Days Are Gone
8. My Song 5
9. Go Slow
10. Let Me Go
11. Running If You Call My Name

MS MR Fantasy second hand raptureSecond Hand Rapture Out May 14th On Columbia Records

Today MS MR reveal their first official music video for their new track “Fantasy.”   The band explained:
“Shot on location in Jamaica, Queens with our dear friend and talented director Austin Peters, the video for “Fantasy” stays true to the main themes and questions behind the track: things we imagine or think we understand are not as they appear. This video presents a world filled with fantasies gone wrong where the mundane, the surreal and the supernatural are all intertwined and what is real becomes a matter of perspective.”

The song is off of the band’s debut album Second Hand Rapture out May 14th in the U.S. on Columbia Records.

MS MR is the moniker for Lizzy Plapinger and Max Hershenow.  The duo’s debut Second Hand Rapture is comprised of 12 tracks and was produced by Hershenow, with additional production and mix by Tom Elmhirst.  The duo recently played a handful of new songs during their sold-out stints at NYC’s Mercury Lounge and headline debut at the Echo in Los Angeles.  You can catch the band performing at this year’s SXSW next month.

MSMR_ShervinLainezNYC BASED DUO MS MR ANNOUNCE DEBUT ALBUM OUT MAY 14th ON COLUMBIA RECORDS

LISTEN TO “FANTASY” THE FIRST TRACK OFF OF THEIR UPCOMING ALBUM

NYC-based, indie-pop duo MS MR has announced that their debut album, Second Hand Rapture, will be released May 14th in the U.S. on Columbia Records.  To coincide with this announcement a stream of “Fantasy,” a new track on the upcoming album, is available now HERE. Lizzy Plapinger (MS) and Max Hershenow (MR) began their musical collaboration in December of 2010, recording in secrecy, at Hershenow’s home studio in Brooklyn, NY over the course of 2011.   Produced by Hershenow, with additional production and mix by Tom Elmhirst, Second Hand Rapture is comprised of 12 tracks and includes the band’s debut single “Hurricane.”
Last week MS MR played two sold-out nights at NYC’s Mercury Lounge and yesterday the band made their headlining sold-out, debut at the Echo in Los Angeles.  MS MR’s ability to command a room has drawn attention to their live shows, which The Village Voice deemed “intoxicating and Time Out New York called “refreshingly sincere new-wave style mood pop.”  Having toured with Marina and the Diamonds and Grouplove last year, the band will make their debut this year at SXSW, perform at NYC’s Governor’s Ball and plan to tour through the release of their new album this summer.

Adele “Live At The Royal Albert Hall” Nov. 29th

Posted in News with tags , , , , on October 27, 2011 by dk

Adele fans won’t be seeing the British singer unfurl her tales of heartbreak in person anytime soon, as the 23-year-old is in the middle of “an extended rest period” due to a hemorrhaged vocal chord. In the meantime, Adele’s live show will be captured in “Live At The Royal Albert Hall,” a concert CD/DVD due out Nov. 29 on XL/Columbia Records.

The DVD and Blu Ray will include Adele’s full 90-minute performance from her Sept. 22 show at the Royal Albert Hall in London. The accompanying 17-track album features a mix of the singer’s “19” and “21” hits, as well as covers of Bonnie Raitt’s “I Can’t Make You Love Me” and The Steeldrivers’ “If It Hadn’t Been For Love.”

“21,” Adele’s sophomore album released in February, returns to the top spot on the Billboard 200 this week, marking its 13th week at No. 1. With 4.1 million copies sold according to Nielsen SoundScan, “21” is easily the year’s biggest-selling album, and has moved twice as many copies as the runner-up, Gaga’s “Born This Way” (1.9 million). (Billboard report)

Here is the track list for Adele’s “Live At The Royal Albert Hall”:

Hometown Glory
I’ll Be Waiting
Don’t You Remember
Turning Tables
Set Fire To The Rain
If It Hadn’t Been For Love
My Same
Take It All
Rumour Has It
Right As Rain
One & Only
Lovesong
Chasing Pavements
I Can’t Make You Love Me
Make You Feel My Love
Someone Like You
Rolling In The Deep
