NEW TRACK // JJ Releases Free Download Of New Track “Fagelsangen”

If you missed it last week JJ provided a midsummer’s treat in the form of a free download of a new track, “Fagelsangen”. We like to think it wouldn’t be Summer without a new JJ track.

Click here to download “Fagelsangen”, the first track off their new album V out later this year on Secretly Canadian.

ON TOUR // Suuns Summer 2013 Tour Dates / KEXP SXSW Live Session

We love this video of KEXP‘s session with Suuns at Mellow Johnny’s Bike Shop during SXSW ’13. We are even more excited about The Suuns upcoming tour dates this summer starting in Brooklyn at Glasslands Gallery. From Brooklyn they head to Canada then Europe through August before returning to the US for a few more dates in September. To see if they are playing a city near you check the list below!

Sunlight In Song Form // Cayucas Perform Pool-Side

If Cayucas came in egg form, they’d be sunny side up. Too much? Let’s get back on track. The band sat pool-side at Palm Springs’ Ace Hotel late one morning for a performance of “High School Lover.” It’s all for KCRW / NPR’s Field Recording sessions. The end result is perfect and only further proves Cayucas’s recently released Bigfoot is THE album for summer 2013. Watch above.

Cayucas kick off their tour next week at the Food For Your Senses Festival. They’ll play a few additional shows in Europe, and then it is off to the States for their first headlining tour. Dates and links HERE.

Pre-Order // Cayucas’s – ‘BIGFOOT,’ Dungeonesse Remix “Cayucos”

With a much anticipated (and needed) summer nearing, Cayucas’s album could not be available for pre-order at a better time. For starters, when you pre-order Bigfoot at SC Distribution you’ll be able to download the entire album immediately; this means you have at least a solid month to memorize all the lyrics in preparation for summer drives and swims soundtracked by Cayucas. Your ordering options include the album vinyl or CD formats; plus a deluxe bundle (shown above) featuring the album on both LP (first 100 orders get translucent blue vinyl) & CD, a Cayucas beach ball and 17 x 22″ glossy poster featuring Bigfoot album art.

We’re keeping it all in the family. Cayucas’s “Cayucos” was recently remixed by labelmates Dungeonesse and it’s, well, perfect. You can check out the reworked track below or at YVYNYL where it premiered this morning!

 
FINALLY – do not forget to check out Cayucas at SXSW next week. You’ll find their complete schedule and other tour dates HERE.

Creatures of Comfort enlisted the help of the stylish Victoria Bergsman in their Spring/Summer 2013 video. Filmed by photographer Nicholas Haggard, the video follows Victoria around a house set in the ever-stunning Topanga Canyon. The Taken By Trees track “Only You” provides the perfect groove for the new collection. Enjoy above.

Taken By Trees also stopped by Creatures of Comfort’s NYC store for an intimate performance. Watch “Dreams” HERE. Other Worlds is currently available at SC Distribution and iTunes.


Last, but certainly not least, Taken By Trees are in Under The Radar’s new Protest Issue, currently on stands. Each artist was given a sign to paint and those signs are now being auctioned off for the charity War Child. See TBT’s sign above! Take part in the auction!
