LISTEN // Here We Go Magic Share “Ordinary Feeling,” Fall Tour Dates

SC315-HWGM-FC-HR-1425

Here We Go Magic‘s fourth studio album, Be Small, finds the band taking a smaller approach to production and finding more intimate soundscapes, but hosts no less acrobatics of musicianship and a singular sonic ambition. Recorded and mixed entirely by the band, Be Small‘s songs are a big leap from the live, expansive sounds of 2012’s Nigel Godrich-produced A Different Ship. Its an album of robust future pop that still continues its route through Here We Go Magic‘s inimitable path of fidgety prog-rock, blissful melodies and sound collage experimentations, but always with a focus on a deep groove. You can hear how these songs likely began as Luke Temple’s bedroom folk riffs, but where they ultimately end up is near transcendent and celestial. Today, the band is sharing the more contemplative and restrained Ordinary Feeling, a slow, swooning burn, and an equally fulfilling taste of Be Small following upbeat debut single, “Falling.

Here We Go Magic’s Be Small is out October 16th on Secretly Canadian, and available for pre-order now. All digital pre-orders come with instant free downloads of Falling” and “Ordinary Feeling.” Catch the band all over North America this fall.

sc320-1

“”The duo approximates the sound of 100 years from now, when some future generation might find the cultural detritus of the late 20th century all baked together in the California sun.A.V. Club

“There was a moment, listening to Gardens & Villa’s new song “Fixations,” that I was transported back to 1974″NPR Music

“The sound of a band reaching its potential, Music For Dogs is fascinating in its textures and instrumentation, yet infectious on a visceral level”ROLLING STONE AUSTRALIA

“Organic and synthetic feels like a nod back to Brian Eno and David Bowies collective 70s freakout”KUTX

Music For Dogs by Gardens & Villa is out today, worldwide. They start a nationwide tour in September to support the release. Watch their video for “Fixations” below. Buzzbands just released a great interview that touches on their DIY space in LA, how making this record differed from the last two records, and the subject material behind these songs.

Steven A. Clark Shares “Can’t Have” Video, Announces Tour Dates With Sinkane

 

Steven A. Clark debuted his fantastic new single, “Cant Have,” as Zane Lowes World Record on Beats 1 only two weeks ago and is back today with a stunning new video for it. DIY Magazine describes the video as “a clip packing drama, love stories and enough emotion to set out Steven A. Clark as a true star.

 

Director Chris Black recalls, “I discovered Steven’s music about a year ago while driving home. A radio station in LA, KCRW, was playing ‘Just Ride.’ The sound of Steven’s voice and music was just so cool and smooth; I thought, this is who I want to work with! A year later, Secretly Canadian sent me the track and I flipped over how good it was; a proper track to introduce Steven to the world.

Listening to Steven’s music, and even when we were shooting with him, you can feel that he’s emotionally invested in his music which makes it easy when shooting videos. We felt we had a responsibility to create a video that does justice to the emotions and feelings that Steven is drawing from in ‘Can’t Have.‘ My DP, Dustin Lane, and I both agree that Steven is without a doubt, a star,” says Black.

 

This fall, Steven A. Clark will tour in support of his Secretly Canadian debut, The Lonely Roller (out September 18th), making a stop at CMJ and also opening for Sinkane. A full list of dates is below with more to be announced soon.

LISTEN // Gardens & Villa’s ‘Music For Dogs’ Now Streaming On Noisey, Album Out Aug. 21st

Gardens & Villa’s new album, Music For Dogs, is now streaming via Noisey. It’ll be up until the record’s release next Friday, August 21st via Secretly Canadian. And if you haven’t yet watched Maximize, a short film about the band’s new record by director David Del Sur and cinematographer SL Perlin, please do so above!


“We thought the label would drop us.. Our girlfriends dropped us. Our drummer of six years left. We were broke and we sort of came home with a feeling of “is this the end?” That’s when Adam and I decided to move to LA and give it one last hurrah. We felt like we wanted to go out with a bang and make the album we always wanted to make! For us and for the sake of love and fun. We immediately started recording demos and sent them to our label desperately hoping they would finance us and give us another chance. I remember when we showed them the demos of Everybody” and “Fixations” and they kind of freaked out. We wanted to redeem ourselves and everything sort of fell into place! We discovered a lot and fell back in love with the craft. We tracked most of the record live, to tape (like our first LP), and did almost all of it in seven days. So happy to get it out there.”
Chris Lynch (of Gardens & Villa)

WATCH // Gardens & Villa Promote Upcoming Album ‘Music For Dogs’ With ‘Maximize’ Documentary


“Are machines making me less me, or am I more because of machines?”

In anticipation of their upcoming album Music For Dogs, Gardens & Villa teamed up with director David Del Sur and cinematographer SL Perlin for the mini-doc ‘Maximize’. Shot purely on a 35mm and Super 8, it “presents Los Angeles as if viewed through the eyes of 1920s avant-garde provocateurs Dziga Vertov and Sergei Eisenstein, giving an insight into the ideas, doubts and reflections swirling around the bands’ heads as they wrote and recorded their new LP, Music For Dogs” (Via HUCK Magazine)
