We are very excited to announce that On Fillmore will be providing a live soundtrack for WNYC’s Radiolab live tour “Apocalyptico”. Radiolab writes that the tour’s theme shows the viewer “Cataclysmic destruction” and “Surprising survival”. Listen to Radiolab’s hosts Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich announce the tour on today’s special episode of Radiolab, HERE.

Prior to this tour On Fillmore have scored soundtracks for two films of NYC filmmaker J.T. Petty’s, documentary “S&Man” and the film “Blood Red Earth”.

Our favorite California rockers Bleached just debuted their official video for “Dead In Your Head” off their new album Ride Your Heart on Complex.com. The colorful, psychadelic visual was directed & edited by Lowlands and Sean Lee.
Reggie Ugwu of Billoard Biz sat down with label co-founder, Phil Waldorf, for a profile on Dead Oceans as part of their “Independent Study” series. The article includes details about Phil’s music career prior to forming Dead Oceans including being music director at college radio station WUOG at University of Georgia, hosting house shows with the likes of Neutral Milk Hotel, and working at the Other Music record store in New York City.
Interview Magazine premiered the new single, “One Half” from solo artist Julianna Barwick. The track, off her recently announced new album, Nepenthe, is the first audio we have heard from her follow-up album to the fantastic 2011 release The Magic Place. Nepenthe was recorded in Iceland with Alex Somers (Sigur Rós, Jónsi, Jónsi & Alex) and the album definitely plays well against the dark and lush landscapes of the recording environment. Compared to her last album, recorded in her Brooklyn bedroom studio, this album looks to have much wider and sweeping arrangements transporting the listener to Iceland with Barwick, giving them something truly inspiring to hear.
You can pre-order the new album at SCD, iTunes, and Amazon. If you are in Manhattan in August then stop by Judson Memorial Church on the 20th for her album release show. Check the rest of her tour dates here.
Phosphorescent has added a few dates to their Summer / Fall tour including a date in Boston and one in Brooklyn, both with the legendary Robert Plant! Check the new dates below and see the full tour date list HERE.
