Hear THE DONKEYS’ Daytrotter Session

If you head on over to the Daytrotter website you can hear the latest session from THE DONKEYS, which premiered on New Year’s Eve. The band laid down four tracks for Daytrotter, including the new song “Nu Blu Stocking.” This sunny slice of SoCal pop is a welcome reprieve from the winter glum, and will almost make you forget if there is snow on the ground.

WHITE HINTERLAND Announces Kairos LP, Premieres MP3 for “Icarus”

The evolution of WHITE HINTERLAND’s music has been graceful and inspiring, shifting chameleon-like from jazz-tinged chamber-pop to French ye-ye music. Now, with the March 9 release of Kairos (March 8 in the UK), White Hinterland delves into a modern, electronic wash and uncovers a confident, captivating pop voice. And we just feel a little blessed to be along for the ride. Please join us.

Longtime White Hinterland supporter Gorilla Vs. Bear premiered Kairos opener “Icarus” today, saying, “the new record finds Casey Dienel eschewing the jazzier/folk steez of her earlier work in favor of spectral, slinky modern R&B and minimal pop…On the surface, a dramatic shift, but Kairos feels like an undeniably graceful, surprisingly natural step up. ’Icarus’ is the album’s ethereal, spooky/sexy opening track.”

Listen to “Icarus” HERE.

Spring tour dates will be announced soon.

JOHN VANDERSLICE’s New 7″ Single Available for Pre-Order

“D.I.A.L.O.,” the second 7″ single from JOHN VANDERSLICE’s 2009 release, Romanian Names is now available for pre-order. The song is a highlight from an album with no shortage of highlights, and paired with the exclusive non-album track “Do What You Want” makes for an incredible 1-2 punch. The fried out fuzz-pop of “Do What You Want” plays a perfect foil to the spacey sonics of “D.I” Containing two instant classics, one per side, this is the way a great 7″ single should be.

Pre-order “D.I.A.L.O.” HERE.
