We’re counting down to 4/20, the date on which you can pre-order the GAYNGS debut lp Relayted and receive an instant gratification download of the entire record. In the meantime, GAYNGS leader Ryan Olson released the first single and first photo of the band today on The Fader website.

Download “The Gaudy Side of Town” HERE.

Don’t forget to catch up on all the GAYNGS videos and learn how to throw the proper GAYNGS sign, especially if attending The Last Prom on Earth.

The Last Prom on Earth is not only the title of the last cut on the album, but it is also a musical celebration of Olson’s project. As GAYNG Leader, he’ll be arranging a night of music from Relayted with all players involved with the record. The performance will litterally be the last prom we’ll ever go to, and it’ll be at 1st Avenue in Minneapolis on 5/14. An early, all-ages show will commence at 5pm, and a rowdy (and a scootch more gaudy) version will be at 10pm. The tuxedo joints in The Cities will be hit hard.

GAYNGS Relayted will be released in stores on 5/11 (5/17 in the UK).

Peter Wolf Crier Signs To Jagjaguwar

interbe-cover

Jagjaguwar is proud to announce the signing of Peter Wolf Crier. Stay tuned for the  release of their album Inter-Be on May 25 in the U.S. and June 7 in the U.K.

Inter-Be is the debut album by PETER WOLF CRIER, the Minneapolis-based duo of Peter Pisano and Brian Moen. The album was born on a single summer night when Pisano felt a torrent of creativity after what had felt, to him, like an interminably long dry spell. He shared the songs with Moen, and over the months that followed, at Moen’s home, these rough-hewed tunes became what they are now: a confident collection of songs, but deceptive in that their very guts still reflect the thoughts of a man in transition.

LIGHTNING DUST Announce Sophomore LP For Jagjaguwar, Offer Up MP3

We are extremely pleased to present the first glimpse of Lightning Dust’s sophomore album for Jagjaguwar, Infinite Light (Released Aug. 4 in the US and Aug. 3 in the UK), an album that ups the ante of the band’s minimalist, self-titled debut and lays to waste any “side project” chatter. There is a light on the other side of the black mountain, and it glows in the hearts of Vancouver duo Amber Webber and Joshua Wells. As Lightning Dust, the pair harness a gentler sound than as founding members of Black Mountain, though this sound is no less loaded with tension and an enviable fluency in the most classic of psych-rock.

While Infinite Light is definitely more layered and lush than previous efforts, Lightning Dust’s minimal aesthetic works well in the economy of musical theater, an influence for the record, wherein each song’s movements aim to be more inspiring than the one before it. And this is suiting in that Infinite Light is a nod to “the light of inspiration” that inspires us to keep dancing, creating and loving in spite of an encroaching darkness. It’s a reminder that what makes the mountains so very, very black is a distant light somewhere on the other side.

First mp3 “I Knew” is a shining example of the fuller, charging sounds of Infinite Light. The song is absolutely shot out of a cannon, driven by the ping/thud pulse and crusty keyboards of Suicide and taken to flight by the Fleetwood Mac chorus your heart belts on the drive home after that first, anxious make-out session. It’s a blazing, triumph of a song that permanently cauterizes any notion of Lightning Dust as a side project.

Listen to “I Knew” HERE.

The band are at the tail-end of a North American tour, which included some opening dates with Bonnie Prince Billy. Check out the remaining dates HERE.

And be on the lookout for upcoming Lightning Dust tours of North America and Europe in support of Infinite Light.
