WATCH // Watch The Video For Pink Mountaintops “Second Summer Of Love” Directed By Brook Linder

First of all, we would like to congratulate Pink Mountaintops on Get Back being featured on this year’s Polaris Music Prize long list. Secondly, we are VERY excited to present a kick-ass video for “Second Summer Of Love”, off their most recent album Get Back. The new video directed by Brook Linder debuted at Entertainment Weekly today and features a beautiful montage of youthful recklessness including skateboards on fire, bashing mailboxes, and more. Watch the video above or here on YouTube / Vevo.

On the video, director Linder said,
“We started with this insane image: looking at a flaming kick flip from an impossible angle, and worked backwards from there. Much of the focus was just creating a collage of textures grabbed from rolling around with this skate crew in the Midwest. The song is totally Stephen’s anthem for a very particular time and place – we took those images and twisted them out into a montage of youthful energy, the good and the bad.”

If you haven’t already, pick up Get Back via iTunes, SC Distribution, Amazon, and your local record store.

ALBUM RELEASE // Sharon Van Etten ‘Are We There’ Out Now Worldwide, On Tour Now


Sharon Van Etten‘s new album Are We There is now out worldwide!

Following up from her 2012 album Tramp, Sharon shares an album not only fully-formed and extravagant in sound but also completely self-produced. Her writing also continues to explore personal experience drawing from feelings of emptiness, loss, fear of change, desire, waiting, and self-healing.

Preview the new album with selected tracks above or on our Soundcloud here.

Get the new album via SC Distribution, Amazon, iTunes, and your local record store.

Fantastic reviews have already started to come in:

“Even as she has settled into a successful solo career, Van Etten continues to write incisively about the volatility of love, with no loss of urgency or investment – Van Etten never sounded quite so self-assured musically”

- Pitchfork // 8.2

“Are We There offers an artist in full command of her voice and her instrument, a woman who knows exactly what she wants to offer listeners and who isn’t afraid to accompany the barest streaks of sunlight with thousands of clouds.”

- The A.V. Club // A-

“Are We There functions best as the portrait of an artist coming into her own, while hopefully putting some of her demons to rest.”

- Consequence of Sound // A-

Join Sharon for her Reddit #AMA today (5/27) at 12:30pm ET: http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/ her tonight on Later With Jools Holland on BBC Two.

ALBUM RELEASE // Pink Mountaintops’ ‘Get Back’ Out Now, US Tour Starts Wednesday

Today we are excited to announce the worldwide release of Pink Mountaintops’ new album, Get Back. Stephen McBean cites influences for his latest release as “Alleys, curbs, walls, and cigarette-stained gig flyers. An island on the Pacific coast. Fake British towns. Slayer posters. The beauty of youth. It’s about listening to ‘Driver’s Seat’ and ‘Guns of Brixton’ and hotboxing The Duster.”

Joe Cardomone, known for his work with The Icarus Line, produced the new release. Get Back includes a wealth of talented Los Angeles musicians including J Mascis, Gregg Foreman, Daniel Allaire, Stephen Kille, and Rob Barbato. To finish up the record, Stephen called upon Randal Dunn who mixed it at Avast! Studios in Seattle and Howie Weinburg who mastered it in Laurel Canyon.

Listen to a preview of the new record above or on our Soundcloud here.

Read Interview Magazine‘s piece on Stephen where they interview him about leaving Vancouver for LA, the new album, and his early musical influences.

Get Back is available now via iTunes, SC Distribution, Amazon, and your local record store.

See what critics are saying about the new album:

“The record once again proves that rock is hard to define and often is whatever one wants it to be, at least as long as there’s a guitar, youthful spirit, and maybe a stage dive involved.”
- Popstache

“The Pink Mountaintops’ fourth long-player is dense, difficult, intoxicating, and bereft of a single dull moment.”
- AllMusic

“Stephen McBean is just one of those dudes, one of the many guys who inspires equal amounts of applause and jealousy because his projects always, in the truest sense of the word, rock.”
- Music OMH
