Half Japanese

Half Japanese premiere video for "Our Love" on NPR

Half Japanese, after taking thirteen years off, are finally back with a new single and video from their new album, Overjoyed. The video for “Our Love” premiered over on NPR Music on September 17, after the album’s initial release on September 2.

Overjoyed, produced by Deerhoof’s John Dieterich, captures and embodies the overwhelming emotions of falling in love. “Our Love,” the upbeat single dubbed by Bob Boilen of NPR Music as “the catchiest little tune I’ve ever heard from them,” has a video to match. With vibrant colors, kissing couples, and endearing cartoon monsters, “Our Love” is the perfect visual for the end of summer. Check it out over at NPR Music and order a vinyl or digital copy from Joyful Noise Records!

White Violet Drops Stay Lost

Dreamy rockers White Violet made the transition from summer to fall a bit smoother today with the release of their sophomore album.

The first of the band’s efforts to be recorded entirely away from their home base of Athens, Stay Lost embraces change with an endearing hesitance, soothing and encouraging listeners. Cosmic, airy melodies collide with tight instrumentation to strike a balance that is reinforced by frontman Nate Nelson’s introspective and intimate lyrics.

Grab Stay Lost on vinyl, CD, or iTunes, or catch it streaming over at American Songwriter.

Helado Negro Takes On Radio

Roberto Carlos Lange has been making the rounds to promote Helado Negro’s ambient new album Double Youth, a striking yet gentle fourth LP for the band. The artist spoke with Bandcamp Weekly to talk about his influences for the work, citing a childhood in South Florida for the palpable latin and hip-hop feel of the tracks. The album cover, a forgotten childhood picture, sparked the album’s theme of “disjointed memories,” a vibe found in the album’s dreamy tracks and non-central lyrics. The track “Myself On 2 U” encapsulates Helado Negro’s choral-synthy sound. Check out the interview and featured tracks here.

Lange also stopped by WNYC’s Soundcheck to perform some more of his tracks and talk about the album. Discussing his unique bilingual format, Lange explains, “I start hearing words, and then one word happens to be in English, and the other word happens to be in Spanish. Then I figure out how to make a story…” The performance was topped off with tinsel-covered dancers for a quirky fun experience better watched than heard here.
