TOUR KICKS OFF ON OCTOBER 20TH AND INCLUDES APPEARANCE AT LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL FESTIVAL IN LAS VEGAS

GRAMMY-WINNING POP SINGER DEBUTS NEW TRACK ‘MIRACLE‘ OFF FORTHCOMING ALBUM, THE GOLDEN ECHO, DUE AUGUST 19TH ON WARNER BROS. RECORDS

 

July 22nd, 2014 – NZ/LA-based artist Kimbra will hit the road this fall for a U.S. headlining tour. The tour, supported by electro-pop artist Empress Of, kicks off on October 20th in San Francisco and stops in major cities across the country through November 9th. Tickets go on sale on July 25th. Kimbra will also perform at the Life Is Beautiful Festival in Las Vegas, which takes place October 24th-26th. (For more info, visit http://lifeisbeautiful.com/.)

 

Kimbra is touring in support of her new album The Golden Echo, which will be released on August 19th via Warner Bros. Records. Her celebratory new track, ‘Miracle,’ debuted yesterday. Produced by Kimbra and Rich Costey, it features contributions from acclaimed bassist Thundercat, Daniel Johns (Silverchair) and legendary drummer John JR Robinson (Michael Jackson, Daft Punk). The album is available for pre-order from all participating retailers. Those who pre-order will receive three instant downloads of the album tracks “90s Music,” “Love In High Places” and “Nobody But You.”

 

The ultimate modern pop record, The Golden Echo is ambitious, sophisticated, and complex, just like its creator. The New Zealand-born singer and songwriter wrote the songs in her bedroom studio on a farm in the Silver Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles, where she was surrounded by sheep and lambs owned by her landlady. A riot of genres, from Prince-like funk, to sing-songy electro-pop, to eerie space-age hip-hop, The Golden Echo was produced by Kimbra alongside Rich Costey (Foster The People, Interpol, Muse), and features further contributions from R&B singer Bilal to Queens Of The Stone Age bassist Michael Shuman, as well as famed string arranger Van Dyke Parks.

 

The Golden Echo is Kimbra’s second album. Her 2011 debut, Vows, bowed at No. 14 on the Billboard Top 200 and was certified platinum in Australia and New Zealand. Kimbra exploded into the public consciousness that same year with “Somebody That I Used To Know,” a duet with Gotye that earned her Grammy Awards for “Record of the Year” and “Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.” The song topped Billboard‘s Hot 100 chart in 2012 and was the best-selling song of that year in the U.S. It has sold more than 13 million copies.

Meet Casey Bolles; On Tour with My Heart, My Anchor In August

Casey-69

RIYL: Say Anything, Bright Eyes, The Front Bottoms

Hailing from Buffalo, NY, Casey Bolles plays acoustic indie/emo/punk music about feelings and stuff. With influences ranging from The Mountain Goats to Say Anything, he writes music that’s personal, but at the end of the day everyone can say “same” to.

His first release, The Fever, was an energetic, full band EP with an indie pop rock feel to it, evoking Say Anything, but future tracks are headed in a direction drawing more heavily upon influences like Bright Eyes and The Front Bottoms, losing the full band while gaining some new influences, experiences, and maturity.

Eastside Cannery Casino & Hotel’s exterior stands out among the skyline of the Boulder Highway. The most prominent feature of the property is the 16-story bronze hotel tower featuring an exposed structural and decorative element, which is topped off by a saw tooth roofline making it an icon for the Las Vegas Valley. There are an abundance of visual references to the burgeoning industrial era with the use of brick and steel in various aspects, along with cross-braced steel facades and heavy steel open trusses. Murals depicting building amenities in a fun and nostalgic way decorate the outer walls of the property.

The interior of the Eastside Cannery Casino & Hotel is complementary to the exterior’s architectural design. Inside, guests are transported to the age of industry. Large open truss ceilings, exposed mechanical and over-scaled detailing is found throughout the property. There are elements of the past intermixed with hi-tech. The use of warm inviting earth tones accent the vibrant saturated colors of mustard, orange and avocado.

Throughout the new casino and hotel, the familiar Pin-ups are featured but the depictions of the 1950’s glamour girls have made way to focus on the saucy 1960’s pop art beauties with a new space age op art look. The zigzag ceiling soffit murals depict life in the 1960’s with glimpses into the ever-changing future – from imagery of man entering outer space to families riding futuristic rockets. Eastside Cannery Casino & Hotel’s artwork celebrates the evolution of industry and embraces the optimism of the ever-changing future.

Eastside Cannery Casino & Hotel has various amenities that draw locals and tourists to experience the property. On the casino level, guests can enjoy 65,000 square feet of gaming space complete with 2,187 slot machines, 26 table games, a 450-seat bingo hall, a live keno lounge, a first-class poker room and a top-of-the-line Race & Sports Book.

Within the new 16-story hotel tower, there are 307 guest rooms and suites that showcase floor to ceiling glass windows giving the guests spectacular views of the mountains and the bright lights of the Las Vegas Strip. The oversized 450 square foot guest room décor and furnishings are reminiscent of the ongoing industrial theme of the property, but have a fresh 21st Century feel with wide screen plasma televisions in every room. Guests who book the corner window suites are treated to an exceptional view while soaking in their in-room spas in their 600 square foot surroundings. Guests who book one of the five executive suites on the top floor are able to enjoy all the amenities in their 900 square foot surroundings.

For meeting planners, the Eastside Cannery Casino & Hotel has 20,000 square feet of ballroom and meeting space to service a variety of meeting and convention needs. The main ballroom is 17,000 square feet and can be divided into five rooms. There are two additional meeting rooms as well as two boardrooms off the main ballroom.

AMERICAN HI- FI ANNOUNCE NEW SINGLE ‘GOLDEN STATE’ LYRIC VIDEO REVEALED PRE ORDERS OUT TODAY! ALBUM ‘BLOOD & LEMONADE’ SET FOR RELEASE SEPT 8th VIA RUDE RECORDS

american_hi_fi_pick_up_1_cameron_rad_photo_credit

Platinum selling pop rockers American Hi-Fi are back and have announced plans to release ‘Blood & Lemonade’, their first album in 5 years, this September via Rude Records.

‘Golden State’ is the second single to come from the album and closely follows the single ‘Allison’ which kicked things off earlier this summer.

Check it out here.

‘Blood & Lemonade’ is now available for pre-order here.

Fans will receive ‘Golden State’ as an instant grat when pre ordering digitally the album on iTunes.

The Boston outfit, who have been on a “semi-hiatus” over the last few years, announced the album to fans at a sold-out, one-off show at London’s legendary 100 Club in May.

Front man Stacey Jones comments on ‘Golden State’: “Golden State is a song about starting over. It’s about learning from your past and using that information to forge a new path, a more enlightened perspective. It’s knowing that everything we do and experience, even the moments that seem tough, can ultimately lead us to a better place.”

Perhaps best known for the hits ‘Flavor Of The Weak’, ‘Another Perfect Day’ and ‘The Art Of Losing’, ‘Blood & Lemonade’ is American Hi-Fi’s fifth full length and their first since 2010’s ‘Fight the Frequency’. The record wholly embraces the sound and spirit of classic, balls-to-the-wall guitar rock mixed with the power pop sensibilities that lead to their worldwide smash “\’Flavor of The Weak’.

LA Duo Vow Streaming New Song “Charm” on SoundCloud; ‘Make Me Yours EP Out August 12, Now Available For Pre-Order on iTunes

vow_color

LA duo Vow are premiering their latest song, “Charm”, on Soundcloud.

Wondering Sound calls the track, “…a slow-smolder torch song, a blue valentine where expressions of devotion are delivered with dramatic intensity — it’s love, but it sounds like longing. At times, “Charm” sounds like a kind of retro-futurist R&B… like a sci-fi nightclub singer delivering a doomy lullaby to the boozy 3 a.m. crowd.”

“Charm” appears on the duo’s upcoming EP, Make Me Yours out August 12th on The Native Sound.

To pre-order “Make Me Yours” on iTunes click here. To pre-order the EP on vinyl click here.

Earlier this summer Entertainment Weekly praised Vow for “giving a contemporary update to the gothy ambience and gauzy textures of ’80s and ’90s dream-pop.”

The duo recently filmed an Altered Course session which can be viewed here.

Consisting of vocalist Julia Blake, and instrumentalist Andrew Thomas, Vow have been known to dance along the genre lines of synth-pop, dream-pop, dark wave and post punk. Driven by drum machines and rich bass lines, Julia’s soulful, and melodic alto vocals ooze on top of the analog pulsing synths and dreamy pads.

The EP finds the band transitioning from the darker textures of their debut, to more Cocteau Twins-inspired dynamics, implementing chorus-drenched guitars/bass, and palpable pop-informed vocal melodies. As with their debut, the EP again features Touché Amoré guitarist, and one-half of Andrew’s ambient guitar duo, Wife, Nick Steinhardt on guitar. Steinhardt, who interestingly enough introduced Andrew and Julia to each other, also took charge of all visual aspects relating to the band’s EP.

Hardline Entertainment Launches The Bunny Gang Pre-Sale Contest; Band Features Nathen Maxwell of Flogging Molly; Sophomore LP “Thrive” Out September 23

bunnygang

In anticipation of The Bunny Gang’s sophomore record, Thrive, being release on September 23 via Hardline Entertainment, the Southern California based label has launched a pre-sale contest, which gives all purchasers a chance to win a Fender Guitar with hard case, a pair of Lakai skate shoes or a Blatant skate deck.

A track off the album, “Sirens Through The City”, is available as a FREE DOWNLOAD on Hardline Entertainment’s most recent label compilation.

“The bands name comes from a punk rock crew I grew up with in the South Bay of Los Angeles called The Original Bunny Gang or OBG PUNX. After playing with several great musicians, including my father Maxwell and my first ever bandmate Mike Peralta, in 2012, I met an amazing hearted and like- minded human being in Nat Lort-Nelson. He was the glue. There’s a deep history, and we share a philosophical outlook. We believe art should say something.”
That’s exactly what songs like the first single, “Sirens Through City,” do. Co-written with Scott Abels (Jimmy Cliff, The Aggrolites, Tim Armstrong & numerous other acclaimed artists) the song skates from a soulful riff into a poetic melody, it’s a personal and poignant rumination from the singer. He also encloses a hopeful message inside of the track.

Ultimately, anybody who takes this ride with The Bunny Gang will feel that progression. “Life, art, and music are all evolution,” he concludes. It sounds like revolution is just up ahead for The Bunny Gang.

Palisades Releasing “Another Techno Jawn” Remix EP on July 29 via Rise Records; “High and Low (Scout Remix)” Now Streaming; Band on The All Stars Tour with I See Stars, The Acacia Strain, Like Moths To Flames and Slaves Starting Tomorrow

palisades_remix

Palisades have been hard at work on their follow up to last year’s debut full-length “Outcasts” – which will be available late 2014. In the meantime, you can enjoy 5 remixes of the fan favorite track “High and Low.” The EP features re-imagined versions of the song by DJ Scout of Issues, Dream Beach a.k.a. Andrew Oliver of I See Stars, Secoya a.k.a. Kyle Pavone of We Came as Romans, DIMIR a.k.a. Lee Mckinny of Born of Osiris, as well as Earl Halasan from Palisades appearing as MindlessMindless.

“High and Low” has been well received as a unique crossover track, mixing screamo, pop, and EDM, landing video play in Journey’s stories across the country and on MTV. The EP “Another Techno Jawn” further explores this crossover with other EDM DJs familiar to the screamo scene.

“On our tour with Crown the Empire and The Word Alive late last year we really saw how ‘High and Low’ became a fan favorite. Ever since we released Outcasts we’ve toyed with the idea of making a remix for it since it is a dance song. When we toured with Dance Gavin Dance last spring, we finally decided that we should make an actual remix EP,” says guitarist Matthew Marshall.

“When coming up with ideas for the EP with our team we decided that we wanted our friends and other producers to be a part of it. The first producer that came to mind was Scout. His producing on Issues self-titled album is straight fire and we knew he would put a whole new twist on ‘High and Low’. That is exactly what he did and we couldn’t be more stoked on it!”

The first track off the EP High and Low (Scout Remix) is streaming now on Rise Records YouTube Channel.

The entire EP will be available digitally on July 29th.

Tracklisting:

01. High and Low (MindlessMindless Remix)

02. High and Low (Scout Remix)

03. High and Low (Dream Beach Remix)

“Sidewalk Stories is a book of poems I wrote over a 15 year period while living in the cities of Cleveland, Philadelphia, Atlanta, and Harrisburg PA. These stories are based on my relationships, adventures and thoughts about living in these great American cities. They are raw and uninhibited, which to me that is what living is about, it’s not always pretty but it is always real. To me the poems are a look into my experiences of urban living over the years. It also paints a picture of my personal views about poverty, social justice, and community within the concrete jungles of our country. This book means a great deal to me because the poems are very personal in that I lived out each one as either a participant or a close observer. I also hope they connect with those who have a passion for the issues I address as well as the vibe of city life that is portrayed throughout the book.” ~Jeremy Ritch

DUO ANNOUNCE UK AND NORTH AMERICA FALL HEADLINE AND FESTIVAL TOUR DATES

July 8th, 2014 – (Burbank, CA.) – Globally revered and highly influential dance-punk duo Death From Above 1979 have revealed a plethora of details about their eagerly anticipated new album, including the title, cover art, and track-listing. The Physical World will be released by Last Gang Records / Warner Bros. Records on September 9th, 2014. The digital pre-order is now available on iTunes and the exclusive album bundles are available from the band hereThe first single, Trainwreck 1979 is now available for sale and streaming at all participating online retailers.

Produced by D. Sardy (Red Hot Chili Peppers, LCD Soundsystem, Wolfmother, Oasis), The Physical World comes a full ten years after the release of the band’s universally acclaimed debut album, You’re A Woman, I’m A Machine, which made Jesse F. Keeler(bass, synths, backing vocals) and Sebastien Grainger (vocals and drums), an underground /over ground sensation. DFA 1979 broke up in 2006 while the first album and subsequent remix album continued to sell inexplicably. They decided to reunite in 2011 and began to perform live picking up where they left off without missing a beat. Their rabid cult has only continued to amass just as inexplicably. Jesse and Sebastien sat down with the NME to talk about the new album release and reuniting. Earlier this spring, DFA 1979 released various clues, tidbits and sonic allusions surrounding a possible new album on deathfromabove1979.com. This will also be your exclusive portal into the wormhole world into all things DFA 1979 now and in the future.

In addition, Death From Above 1979 have announced they will hit the road this fall for an extensive European and U.S. headlining tour, which goes on sale this Friday, July 11th. Please see below for all tour dates.

LA Duo Vow Streaming “Planks” on Soundcloud and Youtube – Make Me Yours EP Out August 12th – Now Available For Pre-Order Via The Native Sound

vow_color

 

After making its premiere yesterday on Entertainment Weekly, LA duo Vow are now streaming their new single “Planks” on Soundcloud and Youtube. Feel free to post either of these links on your sites.

Entertainment Weekly praised the band for “giving a contemporary update to the gothy ambience and gauzy textures of ’80s and ’90s dream-pop. “Planks,” boasts a propulsive electro foundation topped with reverb-drenched piano and washes of ambient guitar noise, as well as a swoony vocal performance by Blake that should appeal to fans of the Cocteau Twins and Lana Del Rey.”

“Planks” appears on the duo’s upcoming EP, Make Me Yours out August 12th on The Native Sound.

Make Me Yours is now available for pre-order as both a digital download, and limited edition 12” vinyl record.

Consisting of vocalist Julia Blake, and instrumentalist Andrew Thomas, Vow have been known to dance along the genre lines of synth-pop, dream-pop, dark wave and post punk. Driven by drum machines and rich bass lines, Julia’s soulful, and melodic alto vocals ooze on top of the analog pulsing synths and dreamy pads.

The EP finds the band transitioning from the darker textures of their debut, to more Cocteau Twins-inspired dynamics, implementing chorus-drenched guitars/bass, and palpable pop-informed vocal melodies. As with their debut, the EP again features Touché Amoré guitarist, and one-half of Andrew’s ambient guitar duo, Wife, Nick Steinhardt on guitar. Steinhardt, who interestingly enough introduced Andrew and Julia to each other, also took charge of all visual aspects relating to the band’s EP.

Click here to pre-order the 12″EP or digital download. ‘Make Me Yours’ is also available in bundles including all three color variants and a test press, and the band’s ‘Make Me Young‘ 7″ EP.
