UPCOMING TOUR DATES WITH THE WOODEN SKY AND GROENLAND

WAITING ALL NIGHT FEATURED ON CBC’S SONGS YOU NEED TO HEAR

RELEASE STUNNING NEW VIDEO
FOR SINGLE RUN

“album features gorgeous instrumentation and vocal layering that perfectly depicts the Canadian landscape, which is Lowlands’ speciality” - CBC Music

TORONTO, ON – October 27, 2016 – Guelph Ontario’s, Lowlands, will release the second contribution to their 5-part Great Lakes album series, Erie, TOMORROW (via Chelsea Records). The 10-track album eloquently investigates the dynamics of human relationship; connecting the quest for answers in our day-to-day with the intrigue and vastness of natural phenomenon. You don’t have to wait until tomorrow to hear the whole album, as Live In Limbo is currently streaming it now. Be sure to give a spin to Waiting All Night – a handpicked track featured this week on CBCMusic’s Songs You Need To Hear. The band is currently on tour with labelmates The Wooden Sky and will wrap up the tour with Montreal’s Groenland (dates listed below).

Erie features production by The Wooden Sky lead-vocalist, Gavin Gardiner. At the helm, Gardiner offers a wide palette of sonic colouring, deepening each song’s exploration. While limiting overdubs and encouraging a live off-off-the-floor recording process, the album shines through the maturity and subtlety of the band’s performance; lending a confident but delicate foundation for the croons, yelps and pensive cries of singer Gordon Auld’s poetic vocals. The Instrumentation of the group is perfectly supported by the co-songwriting of Auld and Abe Del Bel Belluz. With the support of local musicians and songwriters Matt Monoogian and Joseph Gallo Jr.

The Dig Share New Single “Simple Love” with SPIN Magazine

October 6th, 2016

Fall Tour Kicks Off Tonight In Chicago

Label Debut Album Out On Roll Call February 2017

“Excellently composed pop that manages to cross genres while simultaneously sounding fresh.” – SPIN

“The Dig sound like a darker cousin to Vampire Weekend and The Antlers.” – Consequence Of Sound

Stream: “Simple Love” at SPIN or Soundcloud

TORONTO, ON – October 6, 2016 – The Dig will release their Roll Call Records debut album Bloodshot Tokyo in February 2017. The album is the follow up to 2013′s acclaimed Midnight Flowers. Today SPIN premiered “Simple Love,” the first single from the forthcoming release. SPIN says, “‘Simple Love’ leads with a jovial organ hook that’s punctuated with twinkling synths and upbeat drums. Singers Emile Mosseri and David Baldwin still coo as wistfully as they did before, but their voices take on a more whimsical, perky tone. It’s excellently composed pop that manages to cross genres while simultaneously sounding fresh.”

About the song the band says, “With ‘Simple Love,’ we wanted to write an earnest love song about devotion and infatuation that we could picture Nat King Cole or Frank Sinatra singing. The song started as a synth and drum machine jam inspired from listening to Bach inventions, but it’s really a classic Dig collaboration with everyone contributing to expand on the initial idea. The song is a story of two people who are intimate after not really knowing each other for very long, but feeling a deep connection. It’s about overcoming that initial insecurity and reassuring one another.”

The Dig’s fall tour kicks off tonight in Chicago at Beat Kitchen. The tour will make stops in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Seattle, Portland, Vancouver and more. Select dates are with She Wants Revenge. All upcoming shows are listed below.

From the beginning, The Dig have been a classic band’s band, and a true collaboration: three longtime friends, three songwriters, two singers in a true dual frontman setup, all individuals but all woven more and more tightly together as they have evolved. In a world that rewards drama, reckless moves and often-overwrought narrative twists, The Dig have bucked that trend by focusing on, well, the work: writing song after song to cast off more than they keep, and keep only the best. The Dig do a lot, and they do it the right way – building brick by brick, writing constantly, touring steadily, and most crucially, pushing themselves creatively to make better and better records. Which brings us, of course, to Bloodshot Tokyo, a record rich with ambition and a bright, irresistible ease.

“In the past I think we’ve tried to create a mindset of writing ‘for The Dig’”, says guitarist/keyboard playing Erick Eiser, “so as to create something cohesive. This time I think we really freed ourselves from that, and just wrote.” They made the most of their interconnectedness as a way to push themselves forward, writing what singer and bassist Emile Mosseri describes as “elaborate demos” for most of the songs. Arrangements were fully worked out, ideas were explored and re-explored before they sat down to record. Emile continues, “It’s not hard to write songs separately, but there’s a thing that happens where I’ll sometimes have the other guys in my head, even when I’m writing by myself. So in a way, we’re kind of always writing together even when we’re writing alone. We all grew up playing in different bands together since we were little kids, and have toured with and were inspired by all kinds of different bands for years. We did all this together, and I feel like writing this record was the sum of all those years. It’s the most wide spanning stylistically and colorful of our records, and also sounds the most like us.”

As a band, The Dig made a choice to turn somewhat from the more ambient sounds of their earlier songs, using those tones as texture to drive songs with other foundations, rather than making it the focal point. Drummer Mark Demiglio, The Dig’s relative newcomer, brings a modern pop counterweight to The Dig’s moodier side. No band escapes talking about its influences, but its particularly telling that The Dig’s members often come back to The Kinks, Harry Nilsson, Betty Harris, Parliament, even Bach – artists who worked in the canon of their eras’ pop music, but always with an eye toward upending pop’s expectations, fraying the edges, getting weird. Baroque structures and subtle nods pop up throughout, in the keyboard swirl of “Simple Love”, and they permeate the art surrounding this new collection, as well.

Beware Of Darkness Share Explosive New “Muthafucka” Video

October 4th, 2016

Muthafucka Video Photo

“Muthafucka I’m baaack” growls Beware of Darkness‘ frontman Kyle Nicolades in the band’s explosive new video for “Muthafucka“, the second single of the band’s latest LP Are You Real? out now Bright Antenna Records.

Delivering a blistering roundhouse of brazen guitar riffs, bouncing bass, and earthquaking drums, the “Muthafucka” video captures the group’s cocksure and eruptive live performance with visual effects as colorful and complex as Nicolades’ lyrics.

Director Ryan Scott Warren (Imagination Factory, Los Angeles) created the otherworldly visual environment on display in this video through the use of anamorphic lenses, ambient liquid atmosphere, lighting, and denotative bursts of pigment & concrete. As the track gains momentum, each power chord, each drum kick, each riff and bass bounce sends shockwaves through the atmosphere until Beware of Darkness are literally blowing the building apart with their music.

Lowlands To Release Erie on October 28th

October 3rd, 2016

AGP_0470

On October 28th, Guelph Ontario’s, Lowlands will offer the second contribution to their 5-part Great Lakes album series with the release of, Erie (via Chelsea Records). The 10-track album eloquently investigates the dynamics of human relationship; connecting the quest for answers in our day-to-day with the intrigue and vastness of natural phenomenon. The album floats with a weary grace, finding peace in the unknown. Check out the lead single, ‘Runhere. Catch them on tour this fall! (dates listed below)

Erie features production by The Wooden Sky lead-vocalist, Gavin Gardiner. At the helm, Gardiner offers a wide palette of sonic colouring, deepening each song’s exploration. While limiting overdubs and encouraging a live off-off-the-floor recording process, the album shines through the maturity and subtlety of the band’s performance; lending a confident but delicate foundation for the croons, yelps and pensive cries of singer Gordon Auld’s poetic vocals. As Gardiner notes on first finding intrigue in the project, “I was drawn in by the power and timelessness of Gord’s voice, both as a singer and songwriter”.

The admiration was contagious. Gardiner’s fellow Wooden Sky members warmly embraced the record, and with enthusiasm, The Wooden Sky will be releasing Erie on their newly formed record label, Chelsea Records. Founded as an avenue to release the Wooden Sky’s 2014 LP, Let’s Be Ready, Chelsea Records aims to become a platform for other artists and songwriters and couldn’t be more excited to forge that path with the release of, Erie.

Erie begins with a distant banjo and a wistful croon, providing a timeless setting for the story to unfold. As the record carries through its 10 tracks, the listener floats through hints of blues, folk, bluegrass and rock; featuring affecting acoustic guitars supported by Neil Young Zuma era inspired electrics, drumming akin to the measured steadiness of fellow Canadians, Great Lake Swimmers, dreamy slide guitar drifting beautifully throughout, personifying the picturesque, and all with the sonic richness likened to Beck’s masterful, Sea Changes.

With a loyal following in the forest city of Guelph, ON and it’s surrounding southwest, and success at festivals such as Hillside, Elora Riverfest and Calgary Folk Fest, the group is excited to continue their growth across Canada, bringing the songs and sound of the Great Lakes from coast to coast.

BIO:

Based in Guelph, Ontario Lowlands’ draw inspiration from dreamscapes, folklore and the stark, harshness of the Canadian landscape. The Instrumentation of the group is perfectly supported by the co-songwriting of Gordon Auld and Abe Del Bel Belluz. With the support of local musicians and songwriters Matt Monoogian and Joseph Gallo Jr., the band brings their dark and unique blend of country, delta blues and bluegrass into venues across Canada, singing songs with a raw, disarming vulnerability. With their first full-length release of “Huron” the group plan to release a record dedicated to each great lake and are following through with the much anticipated release of “Erie” on October 28, 2016.
