Phosphorescent’s “Muchacho” coming March 19th – Stream “Song For Zula”

 

Incredible news today for Phosphorescent fans! NEW RECORD IS COMING! Muchacho will be out on March 19th, and we have the first single, “Song For Zula,” for streaming.

Muchacho is already described as “a clear departure from the honky-tonk classic rock of 2010′s Here’s To Taking It Easy, and an assemblage of underwater hymns redolent of both record’s spare, sometimes psychedelic predecessor, 2007′s Pride.” More details about the recording of Muchacho and a photo gallery of Matthew in his recording studio ran last month at SPIN.com.

Lyrics for “Song For Zula” are after the jump!

Stream Soft Fall at MTV Hive

In addition to the album stream, MTV Hive has a wonderful interview with Jon. They delve into his visual arts background and how it’s influenced the direction of his music!

“It’s always been fundamental to make it so that you don’t need the backstory and the information. I’d like for a listener to just be able to get with it regardless of any of that. I like the idea that it’s enjoyable without any of that but if you’re looking for it, there’s plenty of layers for you to get into.” – Jon

Sun Airway is currently on tour with M83! Dates and ticket links HERE!

Wait No More: Bill Fay – ‘Life Is People’ Out Now

Today is an incredibly special day here at Dead Oceans. Bill Fay’s Life Is People is officially released to the world. We could not be prouder to support “the strange and wonderful return of cult hero Bill Fay” as Spin recently wrote. As we’ve mentioned before, Life Is People is the first proper studio release Fay has put out in over forty years. Produced by Joshua Henry and Guy Massey, the record features musicians Matt Deighton, Tim Weller and Mikey Rowe. Long-time fan and supporter Jeff Tweedy also sings with Bill on “This World.”

“This album had a life of it’s own. It just fell into place. It was at peace with itself. I was walking into the unknown, but the people who helped me make it were really nice, and great players. It was exactly right.” Bill Fay

Physical copies are available at SC Distribution, as well as your local record store. You can purchase the record by signing up for Dead Oceans Sounds, our new digital subscription service at DRIPFM or at iTunes and receive the bonus track “Home Was the Place.” Life Is People is currently streaming for a limited time at Paste. Enjoy it HERE.

Love for Life Is People

“Breathtakingly beautiful…full of a quiet awe and wonder….”NPR

“Life Is People is proof enough that Fay has always stood tall; we just may have been too short to notice him. It seems like time has finally caught up with Fay, or rather, that time is ready to start regretting its negligence. He’s in our sight lines now, and hopefully he’ll stay there a while longer.”Consequence of Sound

“Bill Fay’s first album in 41 years is astonishing.”MOJO 5 stars, Album of the Month

“Beautiful, patient and poignant, Life Is People is an expert singer-songwriter album…the work of a lifetime…”Pitchfork

Listen to Bill Fay: A Cult Figure Returns, Skeptical But Optimistic.

“When I was on holidays with my dad as a kid, we’d sit in seaside cafes and he’d watch people walking by. … He was astonished at it and he would say, ‘Life is people.’ That was quite emotional for me, to sort of have him on board so to speak on his own view on life.” -Bill Fay
