Akron/Family Win Hearts With Performance at Grand Street Bakery, Featured on All Songs Considered

What a treat! Akron/Family stopped by Brooklyn’s Grand Street Bakery for a two-song performance. Fader was there to catch the band in all their glory. You can watch “Until The Morning” above and “When I Was Young” below. Both songs are off AF’s recently released Sub Verses, available now at iTunes, SC Distribution and Amazon.

You can also check out “the brilliantly experimental folk-rock band” on the latest broadcast of NPR’s All Songs Considered. Their song “Sand Talk” is the featured track.

The Akron boys are playing Portland’s Mississippi Studios on May 22, with a handful of West Coast dates to follow. Come July, the band is headed to Europe. Check out all their tour dates HERE.

Phosphorescent Premieres “Song For Zula” Video at NPR

Premiering this morning at NPR’s All Songs Considered, it is the new Djuna Wahlrab & Matthew Houck co-directed video for “Song For Zula.” Captured in one continuous, slow-motion shot, the video focuses in on a woman as she painfully tries to free herself. From what you ask? Watch above to find out.

“Song For Zula” is featured on Phosphorescent’s recently released Muchacho. You can find your copy at SC Distribution, iTunes, Amazon or from Matthew himself at one of their forthcoming shows. If you are planning to attend a show, consider purchasing your tickets in advance; venues are selling out quickly! Oh and here’s a taste of what to expect in the live show – Phosphorescent live at SXSW for WFUV.

ALBUM STREAM // Listen to Phosphorescent’s ‘Muchacho’ In Full at NPR

LISTEN TO PHOSPHORESCENT’S MUCHACHO @ NPR

“Phosphorescent remains rooted in dusty, personal, earthbound concerns, thanks in large part to the winningly roughed-up, beautifully human voice at its core….Even when their arrangements feel grand and fleshed-out, epic and searching, Houck’s best songs come off like intimate conversations with a confidante – wise and soft, and warmed by experience.” – Stephen Thompson, NPR

WOW // Night Beds In a Near Perfect Tiny Desk Concert

Every part of me wants to post this Tiny Desk concert and include only one word -> WOW. No lengthy introduction or description could make you fall more in love with Night Beds; you simply just need to watch and watch you will! The four-song set includes Country Sleep‘s “Faithful Heights,” “Ramona,” “22″ and an older track, “Hide From It.”

“…one of 2013′s most arresting new voices.”Robin Hilton, NPR Music

Now go witness the beautiful thing that is Night Beds in person. They are currently touring the US, with European dates to follow. See all HERE.
