The Fratellis have announced the release of their brand new album ‘Eyes Wide, Tongue Tied,’ out August 21 via Cooking Vinyl and Pheromone Recordings, which has licensed the recording.
Their new single ‘Baby Don’t You Lie To Me,’ is a foot-stomping anthem. Its fully charged nature is reminiscent of the energetic soul that paraded through their 2006 debut album smash ‘Costello Music‘. But there’s a glorious new level to it, the sound of freedom, a force that runs throughout the album. After three full-length records (two top 5′s), a Brit Award, four sold-out nights at Brixton Academy and countless sell-out shows, exuding Zen-like calm, Jon Fratelli has embraced this newly found freedom, and boy does it show.

Failure have announced the first round of dates supporting their forthcoming 18-track album ‘The Heart Is A Monster‘ which will be released on June 30 via Fontana North.
Ken Andrews and Greg Edwards explain that their approach to writing and recording their last record ‘Fantastic Planet‘ and ‘The Heart Is A Monster’ have been similar, saying “The songs on ‘Fantastic Planet’ appear more or less in the order that we wrote them… when, we do a song now, we write it and record it soup-to-nuts without moving to another song… It takes longer, but it makes more sense for us artistically to explore a song completely before moving on.”

On September 25, 2015 Peaches will release ‘Rub,’ her first album of new material in 6 years on I U She Music via Fontana North. The album is her most adventurous, audacious musical statement yet. It continues on the bold, sexually progressive path she forged 15 years ago that’s opened the door for countless others to follow. ‘Rub’ was recorded over the course of 2014 in Peaches Los Angeles garage studio collaborating with her longtime friend Vice Cooler. ”After six years, I was excited about my lyrics again, about what Peaches was,” she explains. “I felt more comfortable living out any idea I wanted to try. We spent ten hours a day making beats, and whatever stuck, I would write on and develop. The only agenda was to make the best album we could.”
Oozing with seductive rhythms and bedroom-rattling bass, the record opens with the semi-spoken hook of ‘Close Up,’ delivered with an inimitable and impenetrable cool by Sonic Youth‘s Kim Gordon in just one take. Peaches’ old collaborator Feist also returns on album closer ‘I Mean Something,’ singing a hypnotic hook and lending a chillingly beautifully wordless melody. The album also has two breakup songs, the dark and disturbing ‘Free Drink Ticket‘ and the insanely catchy pop song ‘Dumb Fuck,’ which find Peaches addressing issues far more personal than political. Peaches will once again direct and curate videos for each song on the album. The first one to be released is the self-directed video for the gorgeous, throbbing ‘Light In Places‘ which was written for and stars UK performance artist/aerialist Empress Stah, and her pioneering laser butt plug show.

ON AN ON have released the music video for the song ‘It’s Not Over‘, from their forthcoming sophomore album ‘And The Wave Has Two Sides,’ out July 24 via Roll Call Records and Fontana North.
The Carlos Lopez Estrada directed video was shot entirely on an iPhone 6, and features two lovers as they chase each other alongside a speeding train; crashing through buildings, jumping over cows and riding along on horses and motorcycles and even jet-packs to keep up. The fun and dynamic video is the perfect compliment to the upbeat song. “Put this in the right hands,” wrote Stereogum of ‘It’s Not Over’ last month, “and it’ll be dominating the radio for the rest of the year.”

Cleveland’s The Lighthouse and the Whaler will release their new album ‘Mont Royal‘ via Roll Call Records and Fontana North on August 28th, 2015.
The sweeping, dynamic ‘Mont Royal’ showcases the growth of The Lighthouse and the Whaler as a band. Recorded with producer Marcus Paquin (Arcade Fire, Stars, Local Natives) in Montreal over five weeks earlier this year, the album was inspired by the city – gleaning its title from the Quebec capitol’s namesake small mountain. The resultant album is immensely relatable, reflecting lyrically on what it means to grow up – moving into the phase of life where you know who you are and aren’t – and the expectations, uncertainties, and apprehensions that come with it. Marked by spacious arrangements and meticulous instrumentation, ‘Mont Royal’ ranges from the irrepressible, urgent opener ‘In Motion‘ to the infectious sing-along ‘Senses,’ from the stately, evocative swell of ‘Glory‘ to the more subdued, ambient atmospherics of ‘We Aren’t Who We Thought We Were‘ and ‘In The Open,’ and from the scaling, moody ‘Under‘ to the epic, wall-of-sound closing track ‘We Are Infinite.’
