New Nurses MP3, Pre-Order w/Instant Download

Nurses share a new track today from their highly anticipated album, Dracula. The song, “Trying to Reach You” premiered this morning on Pitchfork’s Forkcast. Gentle piano over a vibey bass line complements shuffling and varied percussion that opens into a forest of instruments and layered vocals in a demonstration of what Pitchfork calls Nurses’ “avant-pop” sound. You can listen to the track here.

Dracula is also available for the first time TODAY for pre-order from SC Distribution. Each pre-order comes with an instant download of the full album. Vinyl and CD bundles are available and the instant download will include Dark Jordan Mixtape, a digital-only 9 track EP from the band, comprised of out-takes, home recordings and sound experiments.

The band will also do three in-store performances in their hometown of Portland on US release day. On Tuesday, September 20th Nurses will start at Jackpot Records at 4:30pm, then head to Everyday Music at 5:30pm and finish at Music Millennium at 7pm. The official album release show will follow on September 22nd at Holocene. Full tour dates are listed below.

Nurses Announce New Album “Dracula,” Premiere MP3

Nurses

Nurses have announced the release of their next full-length, Dracula, on Dead Oceans. The album will be released in the US on September 20 and in the UK on September 19. The new disc features the band’s unmistakable elastic melodies, heady pop hooks and unconventional knack for catchy songwriting. With its deep grooves, funky bass lines and focus on rhythm, Dracula feels like the older brother to 2009′s Apple’s Acre. The album is handcrafted with weird and wonderful noises from the band members Aaron Chapman, James Mitchell & John Bowers, who eschewed typical instrumental roles and instead collaborated as producers, each contributing his own ideas and sounds to form songs.

You can hear the album opener “Fever Dreams” now right here. Click through for tracklisting and album art for Dracula.

Spin Shows Love For THESE ARE POWERS, premieres new song from All Aboard Future

Spin recently showed some serious love for THESE ARE POWERS and the band’s hot-off-the-press debut album for Dead Oceans All Aboard Future, calling album cut “Adam’s Turtle” a “clamorous affair, with trunk-rattling bass and vocalist Anna Barie’s eerie chants…But underneath the surface, the song finds swagger in jagged guitar and driving drums, giving an anchor to these otherwise freeform sounds.”

Check out the full article HERE.

And download the mp3 for “Adam’s Turtle” from the Dead Oceans site HERE.

Also, some colorful, spirited photos from the All Aboard Future release party at Secret Project Robot can be peeped right HERE, and check footage of the performance below.
