WATCH // Porcelain Raft Debuts Official Video for “The Way Out” Off ‘Permanent Signal’ Album Out August 20th

Porcelain Raft debuted the official video for the single, “The Way Out”, off the new album Permanent Signal. Directed by Michael Lawrence, the one-shot video takes place in a strip club with a patron who definitely violates the no touching rule. Stereogum calls it a “cinematic, conceptual affair,” and that “you have to respect the level of work that went into something like this.” Watch the new video above or on VEVO here. Read more below to get pre-order info for Permanent Signal and see dates for Porcelain Raft’s US and UK dates.

WATCH // Nightlands Shares New “I Fell In Love With A Feeling” Video, Releases Sophomore Album – ‘Oak Island’

Dave Hartley, the man behind Nightlands and bassist for The War On Drugs, releases his sophomore album Oak Island. The record is a sci-fi exploration of love – a journey only available in an aural space. It is easy to fall in love with this album and after a listen or two, you’ll find it increasingly hard to go. A certain curiosity grows into everlasting fascination. Don’t believe me? Start with the new video and let us know how it goes (watch above).

If you are late to game and did not pre-order the record, get your copy now – available at SC Distribution, local record stores and iTunes!

Oak Island Oak Island Oak Island

“The pairing of these beautifully harmonized vocals with drum beats that go back and forth between a lazy laid back afternoon day and the busy decent into night life give Oak Island a sense of late 1970s summer touched with golden sunlight.”The Vinyl District

“Oak Island is both an untamed beast and an inviting fantasy world worth inhabiting.”eMusic

“So it goes on Oak Island, 35 minutes of romantic and robotic soft rock, a crush mixtape for the Uncanny Valley….it’s a fantastic accompaniment for winter: so much of the digitally processed and pitch-shifted guitar shimmers like tinsel, the percussion jingles, nylon strings, and dulcimers contribute to a mix that’s thick and boozy as eggnog.”PITCHFORK

During the recent holiday season, we challenged our favorite record stores to get creative with window displays and in-store poster collages. Our interns packed up a bunch of Secretly Canadian artist posters  (along with some from sister labels Jagjaguwar and Dead Oceans) and sent them out into record store land hoping for the best. We were pretty excited about the results and are pleased to present the top three displays.
