What "The People" are saying about Loma:

“Together, they've produced eerie, mesmerizing soundscapes —an alluring tease at what they're capable of." — Cool Hunting

“Over whisking wind and a krautrock pulse infested by rattlesnakes, Cross and Meiburg dreamily intone a story about escaping from a sealed room. [‘Relay Runner’ is] truly lovely.” — Stereogum

"Immediately engrossing" — GoldFlakePaint

“Sounds like three musicians wildly in love.” — Monster Children

"A manifestation of brilliant musical minds in organic workspaces" — The Line of Best Fit

"'Black Willow' is a painting with darker contours than anything on [Cross Records'] Wabi-Sabi or Shearwaters' most recent album Jet Plane and Oxbow, while retaining the depth and confidence of each." — NPR Music

"the album's tone and scale changes from track to track, but the variation feels earned along its ten songs, unified by a sense of careful crafting.” — Exclaim!

Hear Forth Wanderers' Take On The Ambivalence Of Love In “Not For Me,” From Their Forthcoming Self-Titled, Sub Pop Debut (out April 27th)

Tue, 13 Feb 2018 07:00:00 -0800

width="480" height="275"src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/EFGWfBGOTE8?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen> Sub Pop has signed Montclair, New Jersey’s Forth Wanderers, and will release the group’s second full-length effort and label debut, worldwide on April 27th, 2018. The self-titled album features the standouts “Not for Me,” “Nevermine,” and “Ages Ago,” and was produced and recorded by Cameron Konner in Philadelphia over 5 days in the summer of 2017. Forth Wanderers will be available on CD/LP/CS/DL through Sub Pop right here. LP pre-orders through megamart.subpop.com and select independent retailers will receive the limited Loser edition on opaque orange vinyl.Forth Wanderers Tracklisting1. Nevermine2. Company3.

Temporary[Photo Credit: Julia Leiby]About Forth Wanderers:Forth Wanderers employ a tin-can-telephone style of composition which they use even when living in the same area code. Since first collaborating in 2013 as high schoolers, guitarist and songwriter Ben Guterl and vocalist Ava Trilling have passed songs back and forth like pen pals. Guterl will devise an instrumental skeleton before sending it to vocalist Ava Trilling who pens the lyrics based off the melody. The duo then gather alongside guitarist Duke Greene, bassist Noah Schifrin, and drummer Zach Lorelli to expand upon the demo. It’s a patient and practiced writing system that has carried the quintet through two EPs (2013’s Mahogany on Seagreen Records and 2016’s Slop on Father/Daughter Records) and one LP (2014’s self-released Tough Love). Forth Wanderers, the group’s sophomore record and Sub Pop debut, is the groups’ most comprehensive and assured statement yet.  Now living in Ohio and New York respectively, Guterl and Trilling have evolved their separate but collaborative writing process. “The only way I can really write is by myself in my room with a notebook, listening to the song over and over again,” Trilling says. “I’ve never sat down to write a story, I write the song as it unfolds.” Since her lyrics are often embedded with intimate truths from her life, the private writing experience often leads to intense self-reflection. On Forth Wanderers these introspections include meditations on relationships, discovery, and finding oneself adrift. Despite the inherent heaviness of those themes, Forth Wanderers feels joyous, a rock record bursting with heart. Take “Not for Me,” a romping track about “the ambivalence of love.” Trilling’s confession of “I can’t feel the earth beneath my feet/Flowers bloom but not for me” resists feeling like a dreary, pitying complaint; instead, as her bandmates bolster her melancholy with interlocking harmonic intricacies, she soars with self-actualization. Opener “Nevermine,” is a surge of confidence inspired by an ex-lover who is still captivated by her image. I don’t think I know who you are anymore/ and I don’t think I knew I was before” she jabs with relish. On “Ages Ago” Trilling paints the image of a constantly-shifting enigmatic lover. “I wasn’t sure who they were, they changed constantly (hence the metaphor describing the “grey coat” and cutting their hair just to “stay afloat”),” she says. “I wasn’t going to wait any longer to find out.” Recorded over five days by friend and audio engineer Cameron Konner at his Philadelphia home studio, Forth Wanderers amplifies the heartfelt sentiments of the band’s earlier works into massive anthems. Guterl and Greene’s guitars have never sounded so sharp, Schifrin and Lorelli’s terse rhythm section is restless, and Trilling seems more self-assured than ever. “We have embraced our roles in the collaboration process,” says Guterl. “Everyone’s gotten better at their instruments and we trust each other more because we know how the machine works.” This [...]

Watch King Tuff's "Psycho Star" Video From Forthcoming Album 'The Other' (out April 13th) + North American Tour Dates Announced

Tue, 06 Feb 2018 07:00:00 -0800

width="480" height="275"src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/uiVnT1gSXZg?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen> Last week, Kyle Thomas - aka King Tuff - released his first new song in four years, titled “The Other,” which NPR called a “meditative deliberation and mystic reflection.” Today, he’s excited to share that the song will be also be the lead track on his new album of the same name. The Other will be out on Sub Pop Records this April 13th, and is available for pre-order HERE NOW.Today you can also hear the official first single from the album, “Psycho Star.” It is a prime representation of King Tuff’s soulful and cosmic new direction. You're now listen to the song via the Cameron Dutra directed visuals above.Thomas self-produced the record and brought in Shawn Everett (War On Drugs, Alabama Shakes) to assist with the mixing process. No less hooky than previous records, the new songs ditch the goofy rock-and-roll bacchanalia narratives of earlier records in favor of expansive arrangements, a diversity of instrumentation, and lyrics that straddle the fence between painful ruminations and reconnecting with that part of yourself that feels childlike and creative and not corroded by cynicism.  The record features contributions from Ty Segall (drums), Jenny Lewis (vocals), Greta Morgan (vocals), and Mikal Cronin (saxophone).Thomas views the entire experience of the record as a kind of psychic reset. “I let the songs lead me where they wanted to go, instead of trying to push them into a certain zone. King Tuff was always just supposed to be me. When I started doing this as a teenager, it was whatever I wanted it to be. King Tuff was never supposed to be just one thing. It was supposed to be everything.”The Other tracklisting:The OtherRaindrop BlueThru The CracksPsycho StarInfinite MileBirds of ParadiseCircuits in the SandUltravioletNeverending SunshineNo Man’s LandKing Tuff on TourOn top of all this good news, King Tuff has also announced a North American tour beginning May 3rd in San Diego.

Watch Video For King Tuff's "The Other" - His First New Song In Four Years

Tue, 30 Jan 2018 07:00:00 -0800

width="480" height="275"src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/AVHMYQJBUs0?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen>
Today, the incomparable King Tuff has released "The Other," his first new song in 4 years. Proof is right here in the form of a musical video.

You can (and should also) listen to "The Other" via Apple Music and/or Spotify.

"It's a song about hitting rock bottom. I didn't even know what I wanted to do anymore, but I still had this urge-this feeling-like there was this possibility of something else I could be doing... and then I just followed that possibility. To me, that's what songwriting, and art in general, is about. You're chasing something, there is something out there calling to you and you're trying to get at it. 'The Other' is basically where songs come from. It's the hidden world. It's the mystery. It's the invisible hand that guides you whenever you make something. It's the thing I had to rediscover-the sort of voice I had to follow-to bring me back to making music again in a way that felt true and good."

Of the Cameron Dutra-directed video, Kyle Thomas says "it is like the song itself - representing the uphill climb of creativity."

Hear Kyle Craft’s 'Full Circle Nightmare' In Its Entirety Through NPR Music’s “First Listen” + New Tour Dates Incl. SXSW

2018 tour dates include headline shows (March 5th-4th), SXSW (March 12th-16th), and direct support for Dr. Dog (April 6th-20th)“Unabashed odes to courtship, confusion and the timeless power of storytelling in song.” - NPR MusicKyle Craft’s excellent new album Full Circle Nightmare is now streaming, in its entirety, worldwide through NPR Music’s “First Listen.” [Listen here.] That's one full week before release next Friday, February 2nd! “Craft may be a wordsmith at heart, but he doesn't shirk on making Full Circle punchy and infectious on a strictly musical level. The folky sway and hushed tone of "Slick & Delta Queen" demand undivided attention, thanks to Craft's cracked voice, gentle strumming, and euphoric choruses. "Fake Magic Angel" revs up a twangy hootenanny of Dylan-worthy Americana, only delivered with the slashing force of Bowie-era glam. And the piano-laden "Gold Calf Moan" is a ballad of lost — but hopefully one day recaptured — love that dissolves and reshapes itself around Craft's entrancing troubadour spell...[His] moonstruck sentiments may seem downright old-fashioned. Then again, so are his compositions: unabashed odes to courtship, confusion and the timeless power of storytelling in song," writes Jason Heller for NPR Music (see “First Listen” January 25th).Kyle Craft Tour Dates + Ticket LinksKyle Craft previously announced 2018 tour schedule in support of Full Circle Nightmare spans March 5th in San Francisco at Cafe Du Nord through April 20th in Charlottesville at Jefferson Theatre.

Loma Share New Single "Joy" From Their Self-Titled Debut + New US and UK Tour Dates Are On The Books

Wed, 24 Jan 2018 07:00:00 -0800

width="480" height="275"src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/IMUApFRVfRw?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen> Loma, the new project comprised of Jonathan Meiburg, best known as the singer of Shearwater, and Emily Cross and Dan Duszynski of Cross Record, will release their self-titled debut album on February 16th via Sub Pop, with their first North American tour to follow. (dates are below.)After presenting singles “Black Willow” and “Relay Runner,” Loma shares the first song the trio wrote and recorded together, “Joy,” a song about the giddy, terrifying experience of falling in love, especially against your better judgment. Of that initial session, Meiburg noted “There was something special about the combination of the three of us, and very different from either of our bands. But I think we were afraid to say so out loud, for fear of jinxing it. I remember the hairs on the back of my neck standing up when Emily hit that high, screaming note on the clarinet on ‘Joy’; it sounded like a human voice.” That sense of discovery, stoked by the album’s urgent and searching lyrical themes, is felt throughout the entirety of Loma and extends to the listener. [Photo Credit: Bryan C.
