ALBUM ANNOUNCE // Electric Youth Announce New Album ‘Innerworld’ Out September 30th US / 29th EU

If you missed it a few weeks ago we welcomed Toronto based duo of of Bronwyn Griffin and Austin Garrick, known as Electric Youth, to the SC family. We also premiered the video for “Innocence” that you can watch on YouTube / Vevo. Today the group reveals the details on their SC album debut Innerworld out September 30th / 29th in the EU.

Pre-order it directly via SC Distribution, iTunes, Amazon, and your local record store.

The new album came together between the duo’s home studio in Los Angeles, where all the vocals were laid down, and their Toronto studio, where Austin’s vintage synth collection was used to assemble more than have of the beautiful analog sounds on the new record. In LA, the band constantly projected old films while recording, all having influences on different songs from the release. Heavenly Creatures by Peter Jackson inspired “Runaway” directly while other films like Metropolis, City of God, After Hours, and Videodrome had profound effects on the environment and feel of the album.

Electric Youth will play the Leeds Festival and Reading Festival this summer before touring extensively this fall. More dates will be announced soon.

ALBUM RELEASE // The War On Drugs ‘Lost In The Dream’ Out Now, Tour Starts Tonight In Philadelphia

It’s been over two years since The War On Drugs‘ critically praised album, Slave Ambient, came out and the Philadelphia band’s newest offering, Lost In The Dream is now out worldwide.

Setting up shop along the East Coast in Philadelphia, North Carolina, New York, and New Jersey, Adam Granduciel of TWOD somehow found time to record the new album between two years of constant touring. Lost In The Dream is a familiar kick in the gut reminding listeners what music is supposed to sound like, making you want to run Rocky-style through the streets (or at least us anyways).

If you haven’t already seen them, get in-depth look at the story behind the new album from this fantastic Grantland profile and this great feature from Stereogum.

Lost In The Dream is available now from your local record store, SC Distribution, Amazon, or on iTunes.

Critics praise the new album:

“the band’s most lustrous, intricately detailed, and beautifully rendered record to date”

Pitchfork | Best New Music

“If Slave Ambient represented a breakthrough, this one is an out-and-out star-maker that should rank among the year’s best albums”

SPIN | 9/10

“Adam Granduciel’s impassioned songs stop short of lighters- aloft choruses, twisting buffed-up sounds into exquisite shapes”

The Guardian | ★★★★
