Alex Cameron – Miami Memory
It’s hard not to wake up feeling good on Friday mornings – another work week over, the weekend stretching ahead. Today’s Friday morning feels extra good, though – we’re so excited to report that Whitney won “Breakthrough Artist” at last night’s A2IM Libera Awards. If you’re not familiar, A2IM is a 501(c)(6) not-for-profit trade organization representing a diverse group of over 450 Independently owned American record labels across a diverse array of genres.
Whitney was in good company with the nomination, amongst the uber-talented Margaret Glaspy, Lemon Twigs, Margo Price, etc., for the title. Needless to say, that means we’re extra honored our boys took home the award – only a few days after Whitney’s debut, Light Upon the Lake, celebrated its first birthday. We’re glad so many people love this record as much as we do. If you’d like to see a full list of winners, you can check it out here.
Faye Webster, the 21-year-old Atlanta-based singer-songwriter and decorated photographer, releases her third full-length album, 'Atlanta Millionaires Club,' today via Secretly Canadian. 'Atlanta Millionaires Club' is an album stitched together by intimate songwriting about lonesomeness in spite of Webster’s connection to a larger community.
Helado Negro has remixed Steven A. Clark’s “Feel This Way." Taken from Clark’s recent LP Where 'Neon Goes To Die,' Negro makes the track entirely his own.
This morning, Cherry Glazerr, the Los Angeles based trio led by 22-year-old frontwoman Clementine Creevy, premiered the Reggie Watts remix of “Daddi” via Highsnobiety. “Daddi” is the “itchy, pressurized panic attack” (Stereogum) lead single from their album 'Stuffed & Ready.'
Whitney – the Chicago-based band led by vocalist/drummer Julien Ehrlich and guitarist Max Kakacek – has expanded its fall U.S. headline tour. This includes a second night at Brooklyn Steel in New York, which the band previously sold out on the back of their debut album, 'Light Upon The Lake.'
