WATCH // Brazos Debut New Video for “Long Shot”, On Tour Now With Cayucas

Brazos shared a new video for “Long Shot”, the closing song on the recently released album, Saltwater.

Martin Crane from Brazos created and directed the video himself. Crane painted beings, bodies, the moon, and animals in black and white using a Chinese calligraphy brush, then stitched them together to animate the story.

You can see Brazos on tour with Secretly Canadian‘s, Cayucas, and the band will return to Brooklyn on July 21st to play with Indians at the Knitting Factory. See all of Brazo’s tour dates BELOW.

RELEASE // Loftus ‘Loftus’ Gets Reissued With Vinyl Pressing On Jealous Butcher Records

On July 9th a mostly unheard gem in the early experimental 1990′s indie-rock world will be reissued with a first time pressing on vinyl. Before Califone, band members Tim Rutili and Ben Massarela, were in a group called Red Red Meat which joined members of Rex and Bundy K. Brown to form Loftus. The group recorded the self-titled album at Ben’s truck stop, a still functioning truck weight stop. About the rather odd recording process, Tim said, “Bundy put all our names into a hat; he’d pick three names and we’d improvise.” Eventually Bundy would turn the lights back on and they would stop, later building those sessions into full songs.

This very special reissue of the original CD is a vinyl release (pictured above) which is limited to 521 number copies on either red or clear vinyl and can be pre-order HERE prior to the July 9th release date.

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.
