ALBUM RELEASE // Ryley Walker ‘Primrose Green’ Out Now Worldwide, European Tour Starts 8th April

“This is clearly someone reaching for their essence, on a mission to follow a philosophy rather than to slavishly recreate a mood.”
-Uncut (9/10)

‘Primrose Green’ sounds exactly like late-’60s Tim Buckley. I can only assume that Paul Rothchild manned the boards and Van Dyke Parks rolled the joints while this was being recorded.”
– Grantland

“With ‘Primrose Green’, Walker has developed into a thoughtful singer-songwriter following a tangled thread, one picked at by the likes of Tim Buckley, John Martyn, Van Morrison…”
– NPR Music

Primrose Green, the debut album from Chicago’s six-string wunderkind Ryley Walker is out now worldwide. To celebrate release day, Ryley plays an in-store at Permanent Records in Chicago tonight at 7pm with more info here: http://www.permanentrecordschicago.com/

You can preview Ryley live with a beautiful session recorded at SXSW via KRT above or here on YouTube. To our European friends – Ryley is headed your way in just a few days. Full dates and ticket links after the jump.

WATCH // A Place To Bury Strangers Shares “What We Don’t See” Video Dir. By Jimmy Fusil, EU Tour Starts Tomorrow

“APTBS recorded Transfixiation, and to us it’s a cubist self-portrait of their live presence; distorted (but accurate!), it captures the essence of their sound from multiple perspectives. Those three aren’t just loud, they move a LOT OF AIR. They move a lot of things, making and breaking them in the process”
– Jimmy Fusil [PopSoda]

A Place To Bury Strangers‘ new album, Transfixiation, is out now on Dead Oceans. Premiering this morning via Drowned In Sound, the video directed by Jimmy Fusil [PopSoda], invites us into the band’s practice from the point of view of the space itself. Watch it above, on YouTube, or for our international viewers on DailyMotion. APTBS also begin their European tour tomorrow night in Dublin at Whelan’s with September Girls.

If you haven’t already, pick up the album direct from us, iTunes, Amazon, your local record store.

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.
