Sleepwalkers announce ‘Ages,’ out July 19th

Today, Sleepwalkers have announced the release of their highly anticipated sophomore album Ages, to be released on July 19, 2019. With this announcement comes the title track available to stream now. The song “Ages” joins other album tracks to be released so far: “Wake Up,” “Never Enough,” “Reasons To Give Up In You,” and “Fault Is Me.” Listen to “Ages” above or wherever you stream or download.

Ages is available for pre-order now on limited edition crystal clear vinyl, black vinyl, and CD, plus a super bundle including your choice of album format with the “Fault Is Me” remix tape, logo enamel pin, and patch. All pre-orders of the album come signed!

Each track on Sleepwalkers’ Ages feels like the title song to some lost Hollywood production of the late 70s to late 80s, those formative movies that shaped young imaginations, touchstones of humor, struggle, romance and adventure. Through fourteen electrifying tracks, Sleepwalkers absorb the symbologies of American pop production and the iconographies of American rock performance with tremendous depth and feeling. Ages is a bona fide party record that is able to convey a mood of bittersweet elation through a series of well-aimed emotional arcs. The follow-up to their ‘60s fanstasia, cult-favorite debut, Greenwood Shade (2014), it feels equally effortless, backed by the band’s facility with the structures and language of pop music.

Behind this maximalist pop masterpiece are two brothers, Michael and Austin York, and Alex DeJong. Sleepwalkers are an astonishing live band possessing a sound both stadium-filling and soul-nourishing, proven over tours supporting J. Roddy Walston & The Business, The Lumineers, and The Shins. Fantastic natural songwriting, personal experience amplified to a broad lyricism, uncompromising sincerity and uncompromising commitment to ‘having a fine evening,’ all of it steeped in the vernacular culture of Richmond, Virginia.

Bedouine – “One More Time”

Today, Bedouine unveils her new single “One More Time,” which will be on her album, Bird Songs of a Killjoy, out June 21st. She has previously shared “Bird,” “When You’re Gone,” and “Echo Park” from the forthcoming release. Along with the song, she has shared a video for the new track which gives a behind-the-scenes look at the recording of the strings at Capitol Studios.

Speaking of the song, she says:

“One More Time contemplates the difference between being with someone versus being alone; Whether a partnership should greatly change your life or allow you to continue carving independent paths. Khalil Gibran famously says lovers should be like two pillars holding up the same temple yet out from each other’s shadow. The song contemplates that in a cyclical relationship.”

Bird Songs of a Killjoy is available for pre-order now on lavender vinyl, black vinyl, and CD, plus a bundle including your choice of album format with a Bedouine t-shirt and hummingbird enamel pin.

Jackie Cohen’s debut album ‘Zagg,’ out now

Today, Jackie Cohen unveils her debut album, Zagg. Zagg is the follow-up to her two introductory EPs released last year, Tacoma Night Terror Parts 1 & 2, which were called “utterly spellbinding” (The Line of Best Fit), “a stunning and complete debut” (Vinyl Me, Please), and “sleazy-listening glam” (The Guardian). The playing on Zagg – by Cohen with the Spacebomb House Band – and production – by Jonathan Rado (Foxygen) and Matthew E. White with freak-of-nature orchestral arrangements by Trey Pollard – is bright and beautiful across the whole grab-bag of love songs, laments, self-mortifications, meditations on sunscreen, hammer-anvil jams, and kit v. kit double drum cardio smash-bros looney tunes suicide pursuits.

More than one of Jackie’s many nicknames, “Zagg” is also a shout out to her uncanny ability to select an unanticipated word or musical flourish, her disarming poetic acumen, her ability to zoom in and out at lightning speed and spin a phrase into a mantra, or the opposite of a mantra. Each song on this record is its own unique little world, keeping a listener delightfully off-kilter throughout the entire affair. Here’s the record. Listen hard. Read the signs. Pack a lunch. Enjoy.

“a mainline plug into her unbroken inner monologue. These are songs that swoon and sway and sweep and jive, even if the messages are of anxiety, heartbreak and dark morbidity.” – Loud And Quiet

“bright, wonky and whimsical” – Too Many Blogs

“With her blend of dark lyrics and spell-binding vocals, Cohen’s music makes for an immersive listening experience” – Far Out Magazine

“playful… lively… spirited – The Line of Best Fit

Jackie Cohen breaks down her new album in Zagg Chats

In Zagg Chats, Jackie Cohen invites us into her world and gives a glimpse into the recording process of her new album, Zagg, which comes out this week. Hear her dissect the songwriting of “Get Out” in volume 1, describe a standoff with a motorist during the filming of the “Chico Chico” video in volume 2, and plenty more fascinating nuggets in videos to come.

Zagg is out tomorrow on runny yolk yellow vinyl, which comes with a Zagg enamel pin and sticker sheet, or on black vinyl and CD.
