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.

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.

NEWS // Gauntlet Hair Ends

We are sad to say that Gauntlet Hair has officially come to an end. Andy and Craig are two powerhouse musicians that we were more than lucky to have and very honored to be a part of our roster. As a band, they created some amazing music and put on some fantastic live performances that will be talked about for years. We are touched, but not surprised, by the fans’ emphatic responses on Facebook and Twitter and would like to echo their thoughts. Although we are sad to see them go, we know they will continue to innovate by creating music that will keep people talking and connect to new fans just like their first two albums with Dead Oceans.

So long and all the best of luck in your future, Craig and Andy, we’re excited to hear what’s next.
