LISTEN // Ryley Walker Shares “Sweet Satisfaction” Via Stereogum, On Tour With Steve Gunn And Kevin Morby



“The songs are never “done” or anything, it always expands live. That’s my favorite part about playing music. I’m not much of a ‘sit down, here’s my three verses and a few choruses, song’s done.’ It comes from the jam. Having a song set in stone would drive me crazy.”

- Ryley Walker talking with Stereogum

Just over a month away from the much-anticipated release of Ryley Walker‘s brand new Primrose Green, and we’re pleased to dip your ears into new track “Sweet Satisfaction” via Stereogum premiere. Listen above, here on Soundcloud, or on YouTube.

Pre-order the new album now direct from us, iTunes, Amazon, or your local record store.

LISTEN // The Tallest Man On Earth Shares “Sagres” From ‘Dark Bird Is Home’ Out May 12, Announces First Full Band Tour

The announcement two weeks ago that The Tallest Man On Earth will release his first new album since 2012 this spring on Dead Oceans was met with open arms and eager anticipation. While the album trailer is a beautiful indication of what’s to come, the first single, “Sagres,” takes us a step further into the world of Dark Bird Is Home. It’s an album that presents Kristian Matsson at his most personal and direct, deeper and darker than ever at times, yet also an album with strokes of whimsy and the scent of new beginnings. It feels fresh and well timed. Hear “Sagres” via YouTube or our Soundcloud page.

The Tallest Man On Earth‘s Dark Bird Is Home is out May 12th on Dead Oceans and available for pre-order now. All iTunes and SC Distribution pre-orders come with an instant free download of “Sagres“.

Pre-order Dark Bird Is Home via Secretly Distribution, iTunes, Amazon, or your local record store
.

For the next few years, the Dark Bird tour will come to your city or a town nearby, and for the first time Kristian is bringing a band to the stage with him. Click ‘Read More’ to see full dates + pre-order information.

ALBUM ANNOUNCE // Bill Fay ‘Who Is the Sender?’ Out 4/28, Watch “War Machine” Lyric Video



Ladies and Gentleman, Bill Fay is back. His new album Who Is the Sender? is the much anticipated but hardly-dared-hoped-for followup to 2012′s revered Life is People, which was Bill’s first solo studio album in 41 years. His new record Who is the Sender? is out April 27th (Europe) / 28th (North America).

Listen to the second album track “War Machine” now by watching the lyric video above (directed by Phil Poole) or here on YouTube / Dailymotion including scenes from the new album’s recording sessions in Ray DaviesKonk Studios in North London. The song is also streaming on our Soundcloud here.

About the album title –
Ask Bill Fay about his relationship with his instrument and he says something revealing, not “Ever since I learnt to play the piano”, but “Ever since the piano taught me…” What the piano taught him was how to connect to one of the great joys of his life. “Music gives,” he says. And he is a grateful receiver. But, it makes him wonder, “Who is the sender?”

You can pre-order the new album via SC Distribution / Dead Oceans, iTunes, Amazon, and your local record store.
