WATCH // Foxygen Releases Official Video For “21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic”

The title song from Foxygen‘s debut album We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic, gets a psychedelic and trippy visual from director William Doyle of Neighborhood Watch Films. Watch the video above or HERE on YouTube to see singer Sam France running around Calvary Cemetery in Queens summoning the spirits just as he does on stage.

That same stage energy ended the band’s summer tour a bit early when Sam had an accident at First Avenue in Minneapolis in July. Doctors confirmed he completely fractured his tibia and fibula and underwent reconstructive surgery.

However, they said they are confident he will be able to perform in time for Austin City Limits and Foxygen‘s October dates in New York City All fall tour dates preceding ACL have been cancelled. Read more to see those dates and the band’s performance of “Make It Known” at Pitchfork Music Festival this past summer below.

Chigliak Release First Record, Amateur Love’s “It’s All Aquatic”

We are incredibly excited to see Chigliak’s first release, Amateur Love’s It’s All Aquatic available to the masses. Officially out now on both CD and vinyl, the reissue comes with a special download of unreleased recordings that have come to be known as the Ev Sessions. Minneapolis’ Ev Olcott recorded the session and while the band considers it unfinished, the songs remain a great testament to what could have been.

“What Amateur Love means to the history of Eau Claire music is representative of everything we set out to illuminate with this record label. Our goal is to release records that hold weight in people’s hearts…Amateur Love became one of the most enigmatic and electrifying bands I have ever known.” – Justin Vernon

Congratulations to Justin Vernon, Amateur Love and the entire Chigliak Family! Order your copy of It’s All Aquatic HERE and listen to “Con/A Sewer/Cat” below!

Catch a Glimpse of S. Carey’s Record Release Show Before the Band Embarks on Tour With The Tallest Man on Earth

Sean Carey’s record release show at Minneapolis’ Southern Theater marked his inaugural performance as S. Carey, but you wouldn’t have guessed it. Accompanied by Jeremy Boettcher, Ben Lester, Nick Ball and special guest Mike Noyce, Sean played All We Grow in its entirety and didn’t miss a beat.


“Mothers” & “Action” (live) S. Carey from Sean Carey on Vimeo.

As the Twin Cities Daily Planet live review put it, “The band played the album from start to finish, with tight, sometimes indiscernible transitions between songs as members occasionally switched out instruments. It reminded me of Spoon’s set at First Avenue earlier this year: each moment was planned ahead of time, every note was played with confidence, and all performers on stage were professionals through-and-through.”

But this is only the beginning!  The Tallest Man on Earth tour with S. Carey as the opener begins tomorrow in Vancouver. Check out all the tour dates, after the jump. Read the rest of this entry »
