Hey Everyone!

Holy heat wave. Is it actually over? It should never be over 100 degrees in New Hampshire. Ever. I mean, our whole thing is that we complain about how cold it is all the time. This is totally throwing off our flow. At least the ocean is always a cool 55 degrees. So our only salvation involves some sort of episode where our limbs change color and fall off - Look at that, I guess we actually aren't ever short on things to complain about... our flow is back on.

Last time we told you about our new friends at Communicating Vessels. This time we want to introduce to another label who we have recently become BFFs with - File Under: Music. Its been a little while since we been able to hang with Canadians, so its even more exciting for us that they are based in Vancouver! They have eclectic taste in music, with one common theme: its all fantastic. We think that you'll see that its in line with your own eclectic tastes. Our first two offerings up from them are Blackie & the Rodeo Kings (with more guest appearances by all your faves than you can shake a stick at) and Graham Wright (of Tokyo Police Club). Get into it.

Also, check out the new video from Hooray For Earth (Dovecote/Redeye). It premeired this week on NPR and stars the girl from Californication who punches David Duchovony in the face during sex. Yup. Her. Beat that.

And don't forget that Mat Santos' (of Ra Ra Riot fame) solo record Massachusetts 2010 comes out next week, only on vinyl and in limited quanties. Get your copies from Redeye today!

Everyone is on tour! Go see shows (in air conditioned venues)! Let us know what we can put you on the list for!

Blackie & the Rodeo Kings "Kings & Queens" [OUT NOW!]


Line
Kings & Queens

First up, we have a FU:M fave, roots-oriented Blackie & The Rodeo Kings. Now this is a very special release for the group- Kings and Queens. Having hatched the idea late one night in the van, the band had been pondering about all the talented female vocalists that they’ve had the pleasure of working with in the past and how great it would be to work with them again. Months later, Kings and Queens was born. Each of the songs on this record feature a legendary female vocalist. The list is incredible: Lucinda Williams, Emmylou Harris, Rosanne Cash, Sara Watkins, Exene Cervenka, Holly Cole, Amy Helm, Mary Margaret O'Hara, Janiva Magness, Sam Phillips, Serena Ryder, Patti Scialfa, Pam Tillis and Cassandra Wilson. Wow. Needless to say, we think you're going to enjoy this one. Promos will be on the way shortly.

Graham Wright "Shirts Vs Skins" [OUT NOW!]


Line
Shirts Vs Skins

Up next we have a debut full length from Tokyo Police Club keyboardist- Graham Wright! If his The Lakes of Alberta EP in 2008 left you starving for more, have no fear. Our new friends at File Under: Music are here to bring you Graham’s first solo full length Shirts Vs. Skins, and speaking of firsts, that’s exactly what you can expect from this album. “Our lives are full of firsts. Our first jobs. Our first apartments. Our first victories and first defeats. Our first loves and…first heartbreaks. Each and every day we’re challenged to take risks and try something new. Graham Wright’s debut album, Shirts vs Skins, is about those challenges. His first full-length collection captures the excitement of the moment when you step out on your own and boldly face the future” (fileundermusic.com). This is a great record to keep summer rolling, so toss it in the player when it shows up in the mail.
