ALBUM RELEASE // Califone’s ‘Stitches’ Out Today, Touring Through October

After playing a fantastic Labor Day in-store at Nashville‘s iconic record store Grimey’s yesterday, Califone‘s new album, Stitches, is finally out today in stores and online!

Stitches is the band’s 7th album, a followup to 2009′s All My Friends Are Funeral Singers, and the band’s first completely made outside Chicago. Califone’s Tim Rutili explains that the writing and recording began in Southern California and then finished the album in Arizona and Texas saying “those dry landscapes and beaches and hills and shopping malls all made it into the music”. Enchanting, complex, and emotionally driven songs will satisfy diehard fans while bringing new fans to Califone’s established sound and storied history.

You can get Stitches on iTunes, Amazon, your local record store, and from SC Distribution.

ALBUM RELEASE // Julianna Barwick “Nepenthe” Out Today

Beyond proud to release Julianna Barwick‘s new album, Nepenthe, today in stores and online! Produced by Sigor Ros‘s Alex Somers in Iceland, Julianna’s layered angelic vocals loop in and out of expansive compositions meant to represent the sorrow and sadness she faced before and during the album’s recording, but also reflect the stark beauty and loneliness of Iceland in what Nathan Shaffer of Tiny Mix Tapes calls “profound and giving music.”

All this week you can stream Julianna’s third full-length album, Nepenthe, via Gorilla Vs Bear. Order the new album at SCD, iTunes, Amazon, and your local record store.

Read more below for early reviews, her in-studio performance of “Forever” live on WNYC’s Soundcheck, and info on her album release show tonight plus tour dates through late Fall.

LISTEN // Interview Mag Premieres Julianna Barwick’s “One Half”, Pre-Order ‘Nepenthe’ Out August 20th

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.
