WATCH – Tracyanne & Danny’s latest music video

October 8th, 2018

The sweet n’ sunny track, “Cellophane Girl” by singer-songwriters, Tracyanne & Danny is now sweetly paired with a music video to match. When asked about the song, Danny said:

“I worked in a plastics factory for a while in my teens, and there was a woman, I guess in her late twenties, who would turn up for her shift looking like a film star despite the hair net, white wellies, and love bites on her neck. We all had crushes on her and adored her. I guess it’s a fond look back at a simpler time of adolescent infatuations.”

LISTEN – Emily King’s Remind Me – November Tour Dates

October 4th, 2018

GRAMMY® nominated recording artist Emily King has unveiled eagerly anticipated new material in the form of new single “Remind Me”. The track was produced by long time musical cohort Jeremy Most, mixed by Tom Elmhirst (Adele, Amy Winehouse, David Bowie), and written by Emily herself. Recorded in upstate New York, “Remind Me” is the first taste from her long awaited new album, due for release on ATO Records in early 2019.

A handful of tour dates for November, including TheApollo Theater in Harlem and the El Rey in Los Angeles, have also been announced – full details below. Posting the track earlier today NPR Music called the track “an irresistible piece of anthemic R&B that captures the retro-cinematic quality of that first drive and the breathless feeling of greeting something new.”

Emily King is an acclaimed artist with pop, indie and soul influences that she hones with carefully crafted compositions. Now returning with a new record, she is ready to take the next step with songs that tell a coming of age story as she moved from her hometown of Manhattan to upstate New York’s Catskill mountains. “Remind Me” follows the critically acclaimed album The Switch (2015) which included the hit “Distance” (more than 13 million streams). Following the album’s release, King performed on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, Conan, Prairie Home Companion, and toured with Alabama Shakes. This is her first release with ATO Records.

Emily King – All Dates:
11/10 – Variety Playhouse – Atlanta, GA (tix)
11/12 – El Rey Theater – Los Angeles, CA (tix)
11/13 – Bimbo’s 365 Club – San Francisco, CA (tix)

NPR New Music – Fucked Up’s latest music video

October 1st, 2018

Iconic Toronto-based hardcore band, Fucked Up, has shared with the world their latest music video for “Accelerate.” The video features live footage of the band interspersed with motion: Twitchy fingers fumble over a Rubik’s cube and click ballpoint pens incessantly, and a fidget spinner circles ceaselessly. A perfectly odd pair for their anxiety ridden thrasher sound. Watch the video and read more on NPR.

WATCH – Cantrell discusses Jam Skating, New EP & Albany, GA

September 25th, 2018

“Stardust represents home and a place of comfort. And the angels represent that place that you’ve been reaching for as a dreamer. That place where you feel like you’ve succeeded and you’ve become a success. So, everything in between is the journey,” says Cantrell in the latest Mass Appeal documentary.

As Cantrell mosies outside Albany, Georgia’s Stardust 2 Skate Centers, the famous—or infamous, depending on who you ask—roller skating rink that doubles as a city landmark, it appears that ideas of his origin and destiny simultaneously converge on his mental. There’s visible evidence of such in his body language, as he leans and teeters anxiously whilst telling anecdotes about his younger days. Sure of the story he’s telling, but unsure of where it leads.

Hear him talk about his personal journey, jam-skating and more. Cantrell’s EP, Stardust 2 Angels, is out now via Mass Appeal Records.
