I got this new track from Toronto’s Doug Paisley (with the very lovely Feist on backing vocals). “What I Saw” is taken from Doug’s new album Constant Companion, to be released on Brooklyn indie No Quarter Records on October 12th.
This is the third installment of the Crash Ave Comp Series. This installment titled Brooklyn Freegan boasts a Bonnie 'Prince' Billy duet with Cheyenne Marie Mize (originally a vinyl only release from Karate Body Records), an exclusive track from Indy do-badders We Are Hex, Chico Fellini's Peaches cover, indie rock upstarts The Vacant Lots, and more.
I just got my grubby paws on The Tallest Man on Earth's latest EP titled Sometimes The Blues is Just a Passing Bird. All pre-electric Dylan-esque goodness, but I'm particularly fond of the first track "Little River".
I been listening to Atmosphere's three new EP's To All My Friends, Blood Makes The Blade Holy. Some of the tales on the EP's are a little more serious than previous efforts, but on tracks like "The Best Day" or "To All My Friends" they are in that classic laid-back working man blues vibe.
I’ve been digging El Guincho's (aka Pablo Díaz-Reixa) forthcoming album Pop Negro (out September 14th via Young Turks). His Spanish sung pop songs are filtered through waves of tropicalia, Latin, and electronic sounds. You can stream the album below!
Fistful of Mercy is the supergroup of Joseph Arthur, Ben Harper and Dhani Harrison. The trio made their debut on KCRW and announced that their debut album, As I Call You Down, will be out on Oct 5th on Harrison's Hot Records. The first single is (coincidentally called) "Fistful of Mercy".
I got this free mp3 download of new, exclusive and never-heard-before recording from Josh Ritter!
To kick off the tour of Europe, Josh is giving away this duet Dawn Landes. The song "500 Miles" - a cover of the famous folk song written by Hedy West was recorded at Dawn's studio in Brookyln, NY with the help of Josh Kaufman (of The Hounds).
Have a listen below (for the price of an email)...
Dirty Projectors (who are hitting the road with Owen Pallett) are also celebrating by giving you a sneak peak of their forthcoming Expanded Edition of Bitte Orca (out September 28th), featuring previously unreleased live material and b sides.
Screening next month at the Toronto Film Festival is the Mandarin language film from Wu Ershan titled The Butcher, The Chef and The Swordsman (Doug Liman has come aboard as presenter).
The Butcher, The Chef and The Swordsman is a highly stylized action-comedy about revenge and greed, following a group of misfits who get involved with a mystical kitchen cleaver made from the five greatest swords of the martial arts world.
No official release date yet, but we'll keep you posted.
I know we're all sick of vampires by now, but this rock and roll-vampire-comedy looks like it could become an instant cult classic. The films features appearances by Alice Cooper, Henry Rollins, Moby, and Iggy Pop.
