LISTEN // A Place To Bury Strangers Shares “We’ve Come So Far” From ‘Transfixiation’ Out February 17th

A Place To Bury Strangers‘ new album, Transfixiation, is out in just over a month on Dead Oceans and today they’re sharing the fantastic second single, “We’ve Come So Far”, via The FADER. “We’ve Come So Far” is a blistering all out explosion of sound and is possibly the closest the band has ever come to capturing the energy of their live performances in a recording.

Guitarist/singer Oliver Ackermann says of the song – “The lyrics were written by themselves. The meaning is absolute truth. Life is super intense and fucked up so even accomplishing anything is a huge feat. We should all be proud of that. When we have worked extremely hard for something for so long it is just amazing to look back on it all. Sometimes I just want to shake people for feeling useless. There is so much potential and amazing things going on all around. Help make something great for us all to enjoy. ‘We’ve Come So Far’ has an endless building feeling which mimics life.”

A Place To Bury Strangers will tour in support of Transfixiation starting next month and will be joined on the road by Ed Schrader’s Music Beat, Creepoid and more! They cap it all off with a performance at Austin Psych Fest in May. Hear “We’ve Come So Far” above or over at The Fader. Full list of tour dates after the jump.

Pre-order the album via Secretly Distribution, iTunes, Amazon, and your local record store.

LISTEN // Phosphorescent Shares “Nothing Was Stolen (Love Me Foolishly)” Via The FADER, ‘Live At The Music Hall’ Is Out 2/17

This morning The FADER premiered a new track from Phosphorescent‘s upcoming live album Live At The Music Hall. Originally off 2010′s Here’s To Taking It Easy, hear the new live version of “Nothing Was Stolen (Love Me Foolishly)” above or here on Soundcloud.

Pre-order the bundle including 3xLP, direct from Dead Oceans, on Amazon, iTunes, and your local record store. Those who pre-order the album on iTunes will receive an instant-grat download of “Nothing Was Stolen.”

On “Nothing Is Stolen (Love Me Foolishly),” Matthew Houck says:

“’Nothing Was Stolen (Love Me Foolishly)” is probably the most straightforward four-on-the-floor-type pop song I’ve got. I wouldn’t have expected it to become a live staple but it has consistently found a spot in the sets over the last couple years.

I think of shows the same way I think of albums in that, ideally, you can establish a world and then create something like a journey within that world. That said, I rarely make set-lists because you never know what kind of vibe the evening might bring. So it’s sort of like sequencing an album in real-time; reacting to the the room and the crowd and the band; and aiming for a nice arc.

Anyway, “Nothing Was Stolen” has established itself as a welcome guest on these journeys. Like an easy-going buddy who pops in and refreshes the party. Maybe lightens the mood if needed. Or maybe focuses the mood if that’s what’s needed.

Also it gives me the chance to give shout-outs to whoever’s gonna take the solos. I enjoy that bit.”

LISTEN // Night Beds Share New Song “Me, Liquor & God” via The FADER Premiere, Available On iTunes


“Gone are the guitar-driven melodies, replaced by wavy, pulsing synths that oscillate just below Yellen’s quavering, slightly processed vocal take. This isn’t Yellen’s first time going electro . . . but it’s the first time he’s done it alone, and it’s surprising how effective this approach is for him.”


The FADER on “Me, Liquor & God”

Things have been quiet on the Night Beds front for a while, but today that changes. Via The FADER exclusive premiere this morning, Night Beds shared a brand new single entitled “Me, Liquor & God” which shows a slightly new sonic direction for Winston Yellen that still showcases his beautiful voice. Hear the new sound above or here on Night Beds‘ website. While you are at it you can download the single from iTunes now.
