ALBUM RELEASE // Suuns and Jerusalem In My Heart Self-Titled Album Out Now, Announce Tour


The self-titled release from Suuns and Jerusalem in my Heart has arrived. Born of a studio session in November 2012, these seven tracks combine the strengths of both bands, from “The Eastern modes and drones plus the Arabic vocal delivered by Moumneh [of Jerusalem In My Heart], and the keyboard arpeggios and incisive guitars of SuunsShemie and Joe Yarmush.” (Exclaim!).

“A unique, inspiring document, ‘Suuns And Jersualem In My Heart’ has the flexibility of a live performance with the exacting quality of a studio project.”
Clash Music

“A gargantuan, continent-fusing album”

Today, Stereogum has premiered “Blue Chicago Moon (Demo)” from the upcoming re-issue of Songs: Ohia’s masterpiece Didn’t It Rain. This expanded reissue presents Jason Molina’s home demos of the record, eight previously unreleased tracks, complete with a distant playground full of children chiming in the background for a few songs. The glorious juxtaposition of Molina’s songs’ desolation and the blissful playing of children is about as haunting as it gets. The expanded edition of Didn’t It Rain will see release via Secretly Canadian on December 2nd.

You can pre-order the special deluxe bundle including 2xLP, 2xCD, download codes, and a giant 27″ x 39″ Didn’t It Rain cinema style poster via SC Distribution. You can also pre-order the re-issue via iTunes, Amazon, and your local record store.

G&V EP // Gardens & Villa Announce Free ‘Televisor’ EP, Listen To “Love Affair”, On Tour Now




Celebrating a successful string of summer shows and a new slew of fall tour dates starting tomorrow night, Gardens & Villa have released a new EP Televisor for free via their website www.gardensandvilla.com. Premiering via Stereogum this morning, preview the new EP with “Love Affair (Swift Demo)” above or on our Youtube / Soundcloud.

According to the band, Televisor is a collection of musical sketches, the majority of which were playfully brought into existence when they stopped by Richard Swift‘s National Freedom studio in February of 2012. During psychological experiments inspired by Carl Jung’s ‘Liber Novus’ they reflected on madness and greatness, searching for inspiration in redeeming symbols: smoke, mirrors and the late night hiss. Some danced in-between takes or barked like a train. The band later described their time with Swift as “a fun and frenzied recording, undertaken during professional hysterics.” The other pieces of Televisor were selected from the Dunes recordings with Tim Goldsworthy in 2013. Together these sessions represent some of the more hidden, shrouded sinews of a sonic structure, the unseen movements and psychedelic corridors of Gardens & Villa.

If you haven’t already, pick up their new album Dunes Dunes from iTunes, Amazon, SC Distribution, or your local record store.

ALBUM RELEASE // JJ’s ‘V’ Out Now Worldwide On Secretly Canadian / Sincerely Yours




Swedish duo JJ‘s newest album V, is out now worldwide via Secretly Canadian and Sincerely Yours. Preview the new album above by watching their cinematic video for “All White Everything” below and hear two tracks off the album via our Soundcloud.

Grab the new album via SC Distribution, iTunes, Amazon, or your local record store.

If you missed it, listen to their exclusive mix for FADER.

Critics have weighed in on the new release:

“Kastlander has a voice as warm and fragile as any in independent music, but she’s just as inclined to infuse it with hip-hop’s braggadocio.”

The FADER

“… when they’re able to scale that wall and dance with the stars, the album’s a treat.”

Pitchfork

“The new album flexes huge melodies and big feelings, and every song feels like a finely sculpted top-40 single in a more hazed-out reality than the one we currently occupy.”
