Redeye Alert: Gold Panda, Tony Joe White, Cloud Becomes Your Hand + more

May 26th, 2016
alerts

Pitchfork states “Gold Panda’s warm and exuberant new album sounds quite unlike any of the electronic music being made in 2016, and is refreshingly
unfashionable in that way.” Consequence of Sound also says that Good Luck and Do Your Best is “a bit of peace ideal for a bus ride or walk, a path to find solace in isolation and contemplation.” The album is out Friday on City Slang.

– American Songwriter says thatRain Crow is yet another stunning example that Tony Joe White’s uncompromising, often ominous vision, shows no signs of diminishing.”

– “Cloud Becomes Your Hand continue to be as idiosyncratic as they are entertaining” in their new video for “Hermit.” Rest in Fleas is out Friday.

Pitchfork says “recent Kill Rock Stars signees Summer Cannibals expertly balance flame-belching Mad Max riffage with lyrics frankly exploring questions of codependence and need.” Their album, Full Of It, is out now.

– Islands recently shared their new video for “The Weekend” on Pitchfork. Taste is out now and the band is on tour.

– SPIN gives Hotelier’s Goodness an 8 out of 10 and says it “feels like that very rare sophomore achievement where a fresh, already pretty great band becomes somehow cosmically greater.”

– SPIN also premiered Fujiya & Miyagi’s EP1, calling out its “pulsing, bubbling synths, trip-wire hooks, and octopus-brain percussion.”

Noisey gives a preview to Muscle and Marrow’s new album, Love, along with an enlightening interview.

– Gemma Ray premiered the video for “The Original One” off her upcoming album, The Exodus Suite.

– Rolling Stone announces a documentary on Sharon Jones!

– “The queer, glammy, wildly dressed duo [PWR BTTM] has a keen sense of mischief and a real gift for honest, punk-infused, tongue-in-cheek pop gems.” – NPR

Redeye Welcomes Kowloon Records

May 18th, 2016

Kowloon Records is the brainchild of producer and multiinstrumentalist Leonardo Salvaro, who started the new boutique record company to release his own music and that of progressive, like-minded artists. Named after the most densely populated neighbourhood on the planet, Hong Kong’s Kowloon, the label shares that aesthetic and aspiration to be a melting pot of creatives fuelled by the power of art.

Musically the roster promises to be varied and powerful, from the Italian electronic in Salvaro’s Florestano & 2nd release Aucan, via English born neo-classical singer songwriter Tom Adams, to the labels imminent first American signings, on a more urban tip.
