WATCH // Sharon Van Etten Debuts New Single “I Don’t Want To Let You Down” On The Ellen Show, Now Available As Digital Single + New Tour Dates


Sharon Van ELLEN.

Life just keeps getting better and better for Sharon Van Etten. In 2014, she gave us the breathtaking Are We There which made itself onto a smattering of Top Ten lists, including Uncut, Noisey, Under The Radar, American Songwriter, Drowned In Sound, Paste, Stereogum & Q Magazine. Yesterday, a ga-jillion people saw Sharon on The Ellen Show where she debuted new single ‘I Don’t Want To Let You Down’ (Also on the episode was Mariah Carey, but alas, no guest verse from Mimi). Catch the performance above and listen to the track on our SoundCloud page.

Download the track on iTunes and stream it on Spotify.

Everyone in Ellen’s audience got a copy of Are We There and YOU CAN TOO. Order it via SC Distribution, Amazon, iTunes, and your local record store.

In addition to this performance, Sharon is kicking off the year with two sold out shows at Warsaw in Brooklyn next month before touring the rest of the globe. Full Dates after the jump.

LISTEN // Lia Ices Shares ‘Higher (Sam Proffitt Remix)’ Via Magnetic Magazine

You know that point of the evening where night begins to turn to day? You’re tired and thinking of leaving the party, but then you catch the sun breaking through and can’t imagine being anywhere else? That’s where Samuel Proffitt’s remix of Lia Ices’ “Higher” comes in. This indelibly catchy remix gives the summer single an icy, airy lift with crispier snaps and flecks of soul-infused synths. The original version of “Higher” that appears on Ices was co-produced by Clams Casino and Benny Sagittarius, which is the sister/brother production duo of Lia Ices and her psychic twin brother Eliot. What’s more, it’s available for free download! Hop on over to Magnetic Magazine to check it out and catch Lia on tour in North America starting this week.

Ices is available now via iTunes, Amazon, Jagjaguwar, and your local record store.

FESTIVAL ANNOUNCE // Justin Vernon Announces Eaux Claires Music & Arts Festival July 17-18, 2015 In Collaboration With The National’s Aaron Dessner, Presale Tickets On Sale Now

boniver.new.3

Next summer, the city of Eau Claire, Wisconsin will play host to the inaugural Eaux Claires Music & Arts Festival, curated by hometown hero Justin Vernon (Bon Iver, Volcano Choir) and The National’s Aaron Dessner. While the lineup won’t be announced until early 2015, you can purchase your tickets starting today at Noon CST from the venue website. Eaux Claires promises to be one of the most diverse and special festival lineups of the year, featuring performances and collaborations you won’t see at any other event in 2015.

A message from Justin-

After several years of touring and playing music festivals of all different types around the world, I wanted to put together an event that would honor what we love about this place—including an independent attitude and blaze orange caps—but also shine a light on less familiar and surprising elements that are already weaving themselves into our future.

Having this festival right in my backyard gives me and the guest artists a chance to share familiar work and new creations in a setting close to my heart and different than any other stage in the world. To create this event within view of the Chippewa River—the very river that defines this place—makes it all the more meaningful.

We’re fortunate, because the Chippewa Valley already has a history of great music festivals. Everyone—the city, the county, and the Country Jam folks—has been very supportive. They’re helping us take it beyond music into a celebration of film, art, and things still in the works … just walking around the place is going to be an experience. - Justin Vernon
