LISTEN // Bill Fay Shares Track “A Page Incomplete”, New Album ‘Who Is The Sender?’ Out April 27th / 28th

“Bill Fay’s songs are so full of so much awe and wonder at life that they just make you so grateful to be part of this miracle that none of us really understand”

– Robin Hilton, NPR Music

Bill Fay’s new album, Who Is The Sender?, out 4/28 on Dead Oceans, is the much anticipated but hardly-dared-hoped-for follow up to 2012’s Life is People, which was Bill’s first solo studio album in 41 years and a deserved critical and commercial success.

Previously, the profoundly affecting song “War Machine” was shared, Fay’s call to people everywhere to stop being complacent to the violence we often don’t realize is being committed in our names. NPR Music then premiered the meditative “Something Else Ahead”, a contemplation on what lies ahead once our time on earth is over. Now, we’re proud to share the gorgeous and slow build of “A Page Incomplete.” Hear it above or on our Soundcloud / YouTube page.

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

LISTEN // The Tallest Man On Earth Shares “Sagres” From ‘Dark Bird Is Home’ Out May 12, Announces First Full Band Tour

The announcement two weeks ago that The Tallest Man On Earth will release his first new album since 2012 this spring on Dead Oceans was met with open arms and eager anticipation. While the album trailer is a beautiful indication of what’s to come, the first single, “Sagres,” takes us a step further into the world of Dark Bird Is Home. It’s an album that presents Kristian Matsson at his most personal and direct, deeper and darker than ever at times, yet also an album with strokes of whimsy and the scent of new beginnings. It feels fresh and well timed. Hear “Sagres” via YouTube or our Soundcloud page.

The Tallest Man On Earth‘s Dark Bird Is Home is out May 12th on Dead Oceans and available for pre-order now. All iTunes and SC Distribution pre-orders come with an instant free download of “Sagres“.

Pre-order Dark Bird Is Home via Secretly Distribution, iTunes, Amazon, or your local record store

For the next few years, the Dark Bird tour will come to your city or a town nearby, and for the first time Kristian is bringing a band to the stage with him. Click ‘Read More’ to see full dates + pre-order information.

Drowned In Sound

“A Place to Bury Strangers is known to be a behemoth on stage, and Transfixiation is as loud as the group’s reputation merits.”

Slant Magazine
