ALBUM RELEASE // Ryley Walker ‘Primrose Green’ Out Now Worldwide, European Tour Starts 8th April

“This is clearly someone reaching for their essence, on a mission to follow a philosophy rather than to slavishly recreate a mood.”
-Uncut (9/10)

‘Primrose Green’ sounds exactly like late-’60s Tim Buckley. I can only assume that Paul Rothchild manned the boards and Van Dyke Parks rolled the joints while this was being recorded.”
– Grantland

“With ‘Primrose Green’, Walker has developed into a thoughtful singer-songwriter following a tangled thread, one picked at by the likes of Tim Buckley, John Martyn, Van Morrison…”
– NPR Music

Primrose Green, the debut album from Chicago’s six-string wunderkind Ryley Walker is out now worldwide. To celebrate release day, Ryley plays an in-store at Permanent Records in Chicago tonight at 7pm with more info here:

You can preview Ryley live with a beautiful session recorded at SXSW via KRT above or here on YouTube. To our European friends – Ryley is headed your way in just a few days. Full dates and ticket links after the jump.

ALBUM ANNOUNCE // Bill Fay ‘Who Is the Sender?’ Out 4/28, Watch “War Machine” Lyric Video

Ladies and Gentleman, Bill Fay is back. His new album Who Is the Sender? is the much anticipated but hardly-dared-hoped-for followup to 2012’s revered Life is People, which was Bill’s first solo studio album in 41 years. His new record Who is the Sender? is out April 27th (Europe) / 28th (North America).

Listen to the second album track “War Machine” now by watching the lyric video above (directed by Phil Poole) or here on YouTube / Dailymotion including scenes from the new album’s recording sessions in Ray DaviesKonk Studios in North London. The song is also streaming on our Soundcloud here.

About the album title –
Ask Bill Fay about his relationship with his instrument and he says something revealing, not “Ever since I learnt to play the piano”, but “Ever since the piano taught me…” What the piano taught him was how to connect to one of the great joys of his life. “Music gives,” he says. And he is a grateful receiver. But, it makes him wonder, “Who is the sender?”

You can pre-order the new album via SC Distribution / Dead Oceans, iTunes, Amazon, and your local record store.

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.
