Japanese Breakfast Releases “Everybody Wants To Love You” Video

How about a slice of Friday night for your Tuesday morning? Today Japanese Breakfast has shared a brand-new music video for “Everybody Wants To Love You.” The third installment co-directed by Michelle Zauner (principal songwriter) and Adam Kolodny, the video follows a bar-hopping Zauner through NYC, multiple games of Pac Man, and to the top of a semi. Styled by Celeste Welch, Zauner is wearing a hanbok, a traditional Korean dress, that her mother wore to her wedding.

It’s a party you don’t wanna miss out on. As is their forthcoming European tour! Japanese Breakfast is currently on the road with Porches in North America and will tour Europe later in the autumn. All dates below.

Japanese Breakfast’s critically acclaimed debut album, Psychopomp, is out now via Yellow K Records in North America and via Dead Oceans in the rest of the world. You can purchase your copy of Psychopomp via Pledge Music, iTunes, Amazon, or at your local record shop!

Kevin Morby Shares New Non-Album Track, “Tiny Fires”

821cdae6-f5c5-4bfe-a183-abec4bdb9baa

Today, Kevin Morby is sharing the song “Tiny Fires,” a non-album track that comes from the same time period as his recent critically acclaimed album Singing Saw . “Tiny Fires” was recorded and mixed by Drew Fischer in Los Angeles shortly after the completion of Singing Saw. What’s special about this live band recording is that it features members of Kevin’s current live band – including Meg Duffy on slide guitar and bass, and Justin Sullivan on drums – which the album does not, so not only is it representative of Kevin’s current live show, it’s a highlight. (Catch Morby live in one of the below cities!)

Since “Tiny Fires” was also written right after the completion of Singing Saw, so, as Morby says, “it is from that same brain.” Released as a digital 7″, “Tiny Fires” is b/w a solo acoustic demo version of the song, which was written and recorded in Kevin’s bedroom in Mt. Washington, Los Angeles.

PRAISE FOR KEVIN MORBY & SINGING SAW

“Kevin Morby speaks the language of records… His music comes from another place, one where you try and piece together meaning by tapping into a kind of collective unconscious, using whatever tools you have at your disposal.” – Pitchfork [Best New Music]

“Morby has a certain kind of light about him that touches even his darkest despair” – NPR Music

“The indie rocker punctuates the timely politics of his lyrical message—a manifesto about modern police brutality and racism that references a Martin Luther King Jr. quote—with fiery guitars and a huge choir.” – Entertainment Weekly on “I Have Been to the Mountain” [Best Songs of 2016]

“The former Woods bassist and Babies frontman reaches a new high on his beautifully arranged third solo effort, which merges Dylan-esque folk rock with a distinctly modern sensibility.” – Consequence of Sound

“Singing Saw is a force of a listen, and the most complete body of work of his career to date.” – Noisey

Japanese Breakfast’s ‘Psychopomp’ Out Now

JB art

Japanese Breakfast‘s critically acclaimed album, Psychopomp, taps into a timeless and evasive pop tradition – where drawing on the personal turns universal. The record explores life’s inherent juxtapositions – life, death; love, pain; the present, the afterlife – through the lens of principal songwriter, Michelle Zauner. Today we’re elated to share Psychopomp with territories outside of North America (where it was released by Yellow K Records).

You can purchase your copy of Psychopomp via Pledge Music, iTunes, Amazon, or at your local record shop! Get to know Michelle a little better with this fantastic interview over at Noisey. Still on the fence? Don’t take our word for it:


“…deeply reflective, and consistently compelling”
Loud and Quiet

“You’ll want to laugh five seconds after wanting to cry; and then you’ll just want to dance.”
London in Stereo

“A collection of smart, steamy pop with intelligence and bite”
The Line of Best Fit

“Self-aware and unapologetic, the foundations of Psychopomp are built on needs – emotional, physical, spiritual”
Noisey UK

“Michelle Zauner’s ‘Psychopomp’ album is one of the year’s most deeply personal debuts”
DIY

This fall Japanese Breakfast will tour extensively with Porches in North America, returning to the UK in October. Check out all the dates here.

LISTEN // Califone Detail ‘Roomsound’ Reissue, Out October 14th ; Listen to “Mittens (4-Track Version)”

15 years after its initial release, Califone’s seminal album from 2001, Roomsound, will be reissued on October 14th. Beginning as a Red Red Meat album, this record, born of a particularly brutal Chicago winter, would become Califone’s first proper album (2 EPs in 1998 and 2000, notwithstanding). “Roomsound was a real beginning. By listening. By letting it be, by force,” says the band’s Tim Rutili. “I remember the stomach ache and winter tense in my shoulders. Computers were new to me. We chip away at it. All of us were discovering new ways to work and use the room. On and off over the course of about 6 months, we finished it. It sounded enormous and important to me. I feel like we made something good.”

Today, the band is excited to share the tracklist for the reissue, which is available for pre-order today, and which includes a bonus LP of five songs that are being widely released for the first time. Hear the leadoff track from this bonus LP, “Mittens (4-Track Version).

RELEASE // Ryley Walker’s New Album, ‘Golden Sings That Have Been Sung’, Out Today

DOC121

How’re you doing? Did you know that Ryley Walker‘s new album, Golden Sings That Have Been Sung, is out today? Feeling better now?

Sunny and shimmering, this record’s not unlike its cover (pardon the cheese), nor is it unlike a warm Chicago evening. Produced by Wilco multi-instrumentalist (and fellow Chicagoan) LeRoy Bach, Golden Sings That Have Been Sung is very much born of the windy city. “The Roundabout” calls out Ryley’s favorite local watering hole, a handful of Chicago players appear on the record.

While tethered to this place he calls home, Golden Sings That Have Been Sung carves out its own microcosm. As The New York Times aptly put it, “His songs are rooms to poke around in, rustling the curtains.” So come on in. You can stream the album in full or purchase a copy below.

Don’t miss out on the deluxe bundle (2xLP with bonus tracks and ltd. edition color vinyl) – if that’s your bag.

Ryley will play two record release shows – one tonight (Friday, Aug. 19) at Rough Trade East in London, and one at the Empty Bottle in Chicago on Thursday Aug. 25. Shortly after he’ll embark on a seemingly un-ending world tour. Scroll down for the full list of dates!
