Praise for Worship

“A Place to Bury Strangers have offered up another winning album that, while hardly the most pop-friendly record you’ll hear this year, proves itself worthy of revisiting.” – Consequence of Sound

“It’s cleaner, sharper, the scree of noise is more glassy sheets rather than an amorphous squall. It is, according to bassist Dion Lunadon, ‘Our vision of what music in 2012 should sound like,’ and if you can imagine a future dystopian parallel to today where this is the mainstream, then you have just imagined something very cool indeed. – NOISEY

The Good Ones featured in New York Times, Spinner features on Indie Rock and African Artists

DOC044

Earlier this month, Steve Hochman speculated that the first big trend of 2011 could be “Indie Labels Going Global on a World Music Trek.” Hochman was among the first to write on The Good Ones in his Around the World column for Spinner, upon the November release of Kigali Y’ Izahabu.

And in Sunday’s New York Times, Larry Rohter wrote another great piece, “Indie Rock Embraces an African Invasion.” Rohter interviews head of Dead Oceans Phil Waldorf and draws on other emerging acts such as BLK JKS (on our sister label Secretly Canadian), Sidi Touré and Tinariwen. No other story is quite like that of The Good Ones, and we’re so happy to see such fantastic reads on it.

Download John Vanderslice’s “The Piano Lesson,” Stream White Wilderness on Spinner, Amazon MP3 Deal

DOC052

With the help of the Magik*Magik Orchestra, ‘The Piano Lesson’ satisfyingly blends modern chamber music and Vanderslice’s idiosyncratic pop. The end result is a record that’s not only surprisingly loose, but also remarkably distinctive.

-Michael Katzif, NPR’s Song of the Day

Today’s SOTD on NPR, “The Piano Lesson,” is available for download HERE.

On the eve of the White Wilderness release, we have quite a few sweet deals to share.

You can get the digital album for $3.99 on Amazon MP3. It comes with an exclusive bonus track of a cover of “Walkabout” by Atlas Sound.

If you’re still not sold on the record (you have two ears and a heart, don’t you?) you can stream the album in its entirety on Spinner.

Viva Vanderslice!

The Good Ones featured on Spinner’s “Around the World” column by Steve Hochman, interview with Ian Brennan

3hhs_DOC044full_1

Steve Hochman spoke with Ian Brennan about finding something extraordinary in The Good Ones, and how the group are a rare gem in Rwanda.

Read this great in-depth piece over at Hochman’s  “Around the World” Spinner column.

Given the inconsistency of Rwandan musical traditions, where did this come from? What were these young men’s influences?

“If you ask them, Adrien says Bob Marley, Stany says Santana and Jeanvier says he liks zouk music, a Caribbean style,” he says. “The fact that Bob Marley is the first person Adrien talks about makes sense in that there’s this social consciousness. And the other thing really amazing about the recording and discovery process beyond the songs being beautiful and that they have this unique way of singing with the interweaving of the voices is that nearly every song on the album is a love song. I knew this because they told me and something like five out of the 12 songs are names of women. That’s a very beautiful statement of live that omits the chaos with which they live.”

Kigali Y’ Izahabu is out on Tuesday! Pre-order the album here and a portion of the proceeds will go to Stories for  Hope and the Kigali Memorial Centre.
