But really, I hate myself for adding to the CMJ recap posts. However, I am excited and proud of all our bands and labels that hosted showcases and played around town last week.
In particular, I have been so bombarded with rave reviews about our newest label Exploding in Sound that I cannot keep quiet any longer.
First we have a full recap of the label’s showcase from Stereogum in which they called EIS “the most exciting rock label in years”. Read the full thing HERE.
Additionally, Billboard picked their favorite 10 bands from all of CMJ 2013 and two of them (Palehound, Ovlov) just happen to be on EIS!! Thats like 20% or something..!! Palehound’s EP can be found HERE, Ovlov’s LP HERE. Check out the full list HERE.
It’s a beautiful day in NYC and an even more beautiful day at FKLG headquarters thanks to our rad labels!!
Today we welcome three amazing new releases to the family.
The first is from NYC based Palehound. As Stereogum put it:
“At 19-years-old, Kempner has the voice of an old soul, her tenor butter-soft over music that would probably be what What Would The Community Think? would have sounded like if Cat Power had The Greatest resources and a slinkier voice. Check it out below.”
The wonderful Bent Nail EP is out now on Exploding in Sound Records! Get it HERE.
Next we are super excited about Milk Money by Dosh out on Graveface Records!
You can stream the entire album HERE! Download it HERE!
Finally we have another awesome release from Graveface; We Are the Dreamers by The Stargazer Lilies.
The band told Pure Volume:
“We created this album through some of the most turbulent emotional times of our lives. We hope the material stirs emotions in a good way. We’d like for this record to put the listener in a state of sonic bliss and give them a feeling they will want to experience over and over again.”
Completely dead after two nights of Local Natives at Terminal 5. So. Many. Feelings. But a wise woman once said we can’t stop & we won’t stop, so without further ado please welcome our newest family member Exploding in Sound Records!
It was super cool to hang out with Jake Whitener of Mock Records while we were in Los Angeles. His label has consistently put out great music from bands like Spyrals, Spaceships, Cab 20 and Jesus Sons, and we are very excited to announce that Mock has officially joined the FKLG family!!
Our first hiphop/rap release is out today & we couldn’t be more stoked about it. We are all about expanding our horizons lately. In other news: this is a really great album. Itunes & rdio think so too so they put it on the front page. Check it out down below :~|
