Check out the new video for the stellar PT Walkley track “Don’t Forget About Me.” Dusty Wright premiered it last week on his phenomenal blog, Culture Catch
If you’re not yet familiar with PT, you’re more likely to be after the Grammys this weekend. He’s created all of the music for a lengthy, star-studded Pepsi commercial that’s going to run during the show; kind of a Grammys “Half Time Show.” Read about it in this USA Today piece.
What Polar Vortex? With his newest song, “Natural,” off the upcoming Shadow Songs, indie-folk prince Lovinggood has delivered us the greatest antidote to the winter blues since spiked hot chocolate. The buoyant synth and bold guitar heard here will make you forget all about your frozen fingers.
Ditch the beanie and warm your ears with this sunny number:
Yesterday Polly Scattergood‘s video for “Subsequently Lost” premiered and we want to share it with the world. The song is from her fantastic 2013 album Arrows (out on Mute Records), and the video was directed by Tom Payne:
The mighty HeadShy released their debut triple-EP La Belle Epoque last Tuesday and celebrated with an amazing Record Release Show at The Scottish Rite Theater, Saturday night. Since we all couldn’t be there, we’re doing our own form of celebrating, by sharing their new single for stream or download. “The Light That Guides The Blind” is the first track on the third EP, _The Base Chord.” We were all convinced it was Spiritualized, before we found it was our very own HeadShy. Enjoy!
Alana Amram and The Rough Gem’s “Should I Go Now” is the kind of classic slow-burning country tune that conjures up images of heartbroken, wayward souls sipping on bottles of beer at the nearest hole-in-the-wall. It may come as no surprise then that the first track released from Amram’s forthcoming Spring River, to be released March 4th on Kingswood Records, originated as scribbles on the backs of receipts Amram kept while tending bar a few years ago. Those lyrical scribbles, which conveyed how Amram was fed-up with her current situation, make up the bulk of “Should I Go Now,” a song left with a considerable amount of room to breathe. “With a song like this, you just have to know when it is time to put down the paint brush and let it dry,” says Amram.
Take a listen to “Should I Go Now”, premiered by CMT Edge, and keep an eye out for the full-length this March!
March 11 will see the release of the first full-length release from William Flynn, aka Sleepers Work.
The first shared track from No Turn Before The Shoreline was premiered by Treble last week. Here’s what Treble’s Jeff Terich had to say about it. “Brooklyn musician William Flynn has worked with the likes of St. Vincent, Acrylics, Aufgang and The Prids, but as Sleepers Work, he produces a more atmospheric form of hypnotic, electronic music. He’s releasing his debut album, No Turn Before the Shoreline this spring, which contains “Basment Lights,” a gorgeously dreamy track with hazy effects and a sonic warmth you can wrap yourself in like a blanket.”
Welcome to the soundtrack that starts off our every day here at Team Clermont.
Seattle’s Jupe Jupe recently announced that their third album, Crooked Kisses, will be released on March 4th of this year. We’ve been with these guys since the beginning and couldn’t be more excited about this new one; their best yet!
Surviving The Golden Age premiered the first single “Pieces Of You”, just last week. Check it out and tell us what you think!
