Real Estate have shared an immersive new music video for “Stained Glass” – the second video to be released from their latest album In Mind out now. Directed by Craig Allen, the interactive experience allows fans to color and share their own animated kaleidoscope-like video, creating something unique and experimental. Watch the band’s own color creation below and create your own here: stainedglassvideo.com

In addition to the video release, Real Estate has announced a headlining tour this fall. The band’s expansive tour this spring resulted in their biggest shows to date, including sold out stops at D.C.’s 9:30 Club, The Vic Theatre in Chicago, a 2-night stand at NYC’s Brooklyn Steel + more. The fall tour will feature performances at iconic venues such as The Theatre at The Ace Hotel in Los Angeles and First Avenue in Minneapolis. Presale begins on Monday, May 22 with code “STAINEDGLASS”, with tickets officially on sale May 25. See full tour dates below.

Allen says of the video: “We were collectively excited by making a video that the band could create with their fans rather than for them. I've always been excited to find new ways of making content and this video is a fun—dare I say therapeutic—thing to play with, where you actually get to feel like you accomplish something at the end. That's what is exciting to all of us and we're extremely proud of what we've been able to create with the help of the fabulous MediaMonks team.”

A limited edition 7” for “Stained Glass” backed with an exclusive track, the instrumental "Two Part, Part Two”, is also available to purchase now from Real Estate’s store. Much like its video counterpart, each 7” is a one of kind mix of colors.

The band recently performed another In Mind's first single “Darling” on Conan, which has earned widespread praise from Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, the NY Times, SPIN, Vice, Salon + more. Watch the performance and revisit the orignial music video, directed by Weird Days, below.

PETER PERRETT ANNOUNCES DEBUT SOLO ALBUM "HOW THE WEST WAS WON"

Peter Perrett | 05/22/17

Image: Peter P announce shot

Peter Perrett - former frontman of The Only Ones - releases his debut solo album How The West Was Won on June 30th.

Perrett, whose incisive songcraft and sardonic drawl made him one of the most distinctive voices of the Seventies hasn’t released any music for 20 years. Bearing in mind his most famous song began “I always flirt with death” (‘Another Girl, Another Planet’), this is one comeback that nobody saw coming.

In the hands of certain songwriters, a story of resurrection and redemption might ring a little hollow, but when the songwriter is Peter Perrett, the usual rules have never applied.

Perrett makes each song on How The West Was Won sound natural and effortless, as though he were continuing a briefly interrupted conversation rather than picking up the threads of a solo career that faltered two decades ago. He claims to have barely touched a guitar in the decade between The One’s 1996 album Woke Up Sticky and the 2007 reunion of The Only Ones; with Perrett, a hiatus could so easily turn into a hibernation. Yet Perrett’s familiar voice sounds like it simply stepped out of the room for a few minutes and popped back in again.

Backed by his sons - Jamie and Peter Jr. on lead guitar and bass respectively - and produced by Chris Kimsey (The Rolling Stones), Peter’s intuitive feel for words; his flair for idiosyncratic metaphors and his deadpan wit are all still as sharp as ever.

As demonstrated perfectly by the title track and album opener which Perrett shares today. It finds him railing against American imperialism and celebrity culture. The video is directed by Focus Creeps (Arctic Monkeys/King Krule) and features Peter’s band with whom he recorded the album

The songs on How The West Was Won examine complex emotional terrain and extreme human behaviour, shot through as always with wry self-analysis. In a sense the album is a Perrett family affair: there are love songs (‘An Epic Story’, ‘C Voyeurger’) from Peter to his wife of 47 years Zena. On ‘Something In My Brain’, Perrett discusses good choices, bad choices and ultimately the only choices that will guarantee survival. There are also songs where Perrett opens his curtains and stares out into a much-changed world (‘Man Of Extremes’, ‘Sweet Endeavour’).

How The West Was Won finds Perrett with energy in his blood, rediscovering the importance of rock’n’roll. Having turned 65 over the weekend, he has a fire burning inside him again, and a determination not to blow what could be his last chance.  

Tracklisting:

  1. How The West Was Won
  2. An Epic Story
  3. Hard To Say No
  4. Troika
  5. Living In My Head
  6. Man Of Extremes
  7. Sweet Endeavour
  8. C Voyeurger
  9. Something In My Brain
  10. Take Me Home 

How The West Was Won is available to pre-order on deluxe LP (coloured vinyl, gatefold sleeve, booklet and black polylined sleeve), standard vinyl (gatefold sleeve, booklet and black polylined sleeve), CD (gatefold wallet sleeve, booklet) and digital.

Pre order: Dom Mart / Download

(SANDY) ALEX G SHARES 'SPORTSTAR', 'BRICK'; NEW ALBUM 'ROCKET' OUT MAY 19

(Sandy) Alex G | 05/04/17

Image: Alex G

_

(Sandy) Alex G shares two new songs, from the forthcoming Rocket (out May 19 on Domino). “Sportstar”, a brightly shimmering treatise on obsession, with pitched-up vocals and a melancholic piano line, sits as far away sonically from “Brick” - a 2 minute screamer of a hardcore song - as might be possible. These two songs – the sonic bookends of Rocket – showcase the wide palette that (Sandy) Alex G is working with on Rocket, his eighth album.

Both NYC shows – at The Park Church Co-Op and Music Hall of Williamsburg – are now sold out. Gladly, (Sandy) Alex G has announced a third NYC show, at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets to that show, and also Austin City Limits, at which (Sandy) Alex G will be appearing this October, are on sale now.

(SANDY) ALEX G ANNOUNCES NEW ALBUM 'ROCKET'; NYC RELEASE SHOW

(Sandy) Alex G | 03/02/17

Image: Alex G Bobby

_

(Sandy) Alex G is pleased to announce his new album, Rocket - set for a May 19th, 2017 release.

Rocket is the Philadelphia-based artist’s eighth full-length release—an assured statement that follows a slate of humble masterpieces, many of them self-recorded and self-released, stretching from 2010’s RACE to his 2015 Domino debut, Beach Music. Rocket’s sessions began shortly after Beach Music’s ended, with Alex tracking songs at home, by himself and with friends, in the gaps between a hectic 2015 and 2016 touring schedule. Rocket was mixed by Jacob Portrait (Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Bass Drum of Death), who also lent his hand to Beach Music, giving the album a fine-tuning that retains the homespun personality of earlier efforts.

(Sandy) Alex G will be playing a special album release show in Brooklyn, New York, on Thursday May 18th. The show will be at The Park Church Co-Op, and tickets go on sale this Friday here.  Also announcing today is an all-ages hometown Rocket show on July 8th at Union Transfer in Philadelphia, PA. Tickets go on sale this Friday here. Both shows will feature special guests.

Stay tuned for more tour dates to be announced soon.

Animal Collective announce The Painters EP, a new companion release to last year’s album Painting With. The EP will be available digitally this Friday, February 17, almost a year to the date of their 10th studio album’s release. Pre-order the CD and 12” exclusively from Animal Collective’s store.

The EP contains three new and original tracks recorded during the Painting With era, and also includes a studio recording of “Jimmy Mack” (made famous by Martha & The Vandellas), a cover performed on their recent tours. Watch a lyric video for the opening track "Kinda Bonkers" below.

All pre-orders receive an instant download of “Kinda Bonkers” and a download of the EP this Friday, February 17. The EP features artwork by Brian DeGraw, as pictured below, who supplied the original portraits and artwork for Painting With.

The band return to the US & Canada in May 2017 for headlining live dates including a show at the new venue Brooklyn Steel in Brooklyn, NY. This follows on a recent winter tour of Florida and an Animal Collective-curated three day camping festival in Big Sur, CA this past autumn. Find all the dates below.
