LISTEN // Sharon Van Etten Shares “Just Like Blood”, “I Don’t Want To Let You Down” EP Out June 9th


“Sharon Van Etten could sing the instruction manual for a dishwasher and make it sound like lyrical poetry. Over the course of four full-lengths, her voice has only evolved and grown both bolder and more nuanced. Van Etten plays every word like an instrument, bending one note into the next with a woozy purr that’s sometimes sensual, sometimes heartbreaking but always arresting.”
NPR Music’s “Songs We Love”

Couldn’t agree more. That’s why we’ve been working on Sharon Van Etten’s next project ‘Sharon Sings Your Favorite Instructional Manuals” EP for a while now. In the meantime, check out new track “Just Like Blood” from the upcoming “I Don’t Want To Let You Down” EP, out 6/3 via Jagjaguwar. This second single is as sophisticated and evolved as anything Van Etten has ever created. Listen above or on our SoundCloud page.

“I Don’t Want To Let You Down” EP EP is available now for pre-order. Instant free downloads of “Just Like Blood” and the EP’s title track come with each digital pre-order.

ALBUM ANNOUNCE // Unknown Mortal Orchestra Announce New Album ‘Multi-Love’ Out May 26th, Listen To The Title Track Now




The threads of our past never unravel, they hover like invisible webs, occasionally glistening due to a sly angle of the sun. On Multi-Love, Unknown Mortal Orchestra frontman and multi-instrumentalist Ruban Nielson reflects on relationships: airy, humid longing, loss, the geometry of desire that occurs when three people align. Where Nielson addressed the pain of being alone on II, Multi-Love takes on the complications of being together.UMO’s new album is out May 26th on Jagjaguwar. Listen to title track “Multi-Love” above or on our SoundCloud page and YouTube..

Pre-order Multi-Love via SCD/direct, Amazon, iTunes, your local record store.

Multi-Love adds dimensions to the band’s already kaleidoscopic approach, with Nielson exploring a newfound appreciation for synthesizers. The new songs channel the spirit of psych innovators without ignoring the last 40 years of music, forming a flowing, cohesive whole that reflects restless creativity. Cosmic escapes and disco rhythms speak to developing new vocabulary, while Nielson’s vocals reach powerful new heights.


“It felt good to be rebelling against the typical view of what an artists is today, a curator,” says Ruban. “It’s more about being someone who makes things happen in concrete ways. Building old synthesizers and bringing them back to life, creating sounds that aren’t quite like anyone else’s. I think that’s much more subversive.”

While legions of artists show fidelity to the roots of psychedelia, Unknown Mortal Orchestra shares the rare quality that makes the genre’s touchstones so vital: constant exploration.

Additionally, US and UK tour dates have been announced, and will go on pre-sale on Friday. Full dates + track listing after the jump.
