ALBUM RELEASE // Viet Cong’s Self-Titled Album Out Worldwide Now, On Tour Starting January 28th

“At no point does Viet Cong ease up on the pressure; this is its mourning period, as the massive production culminates in a furious bonfire of rage and release that’s stunning in its scope. The year is too early to call, but if more records match Viet Cong’s restless moods, there may not be much left of us come December.” – NPR Music’s “First Listen”

Ladies & Gentleman, welcome to the cult of Viet Cong. We’ve been members for a while, and we’re glad you’ve joined us. Initiation involves jamming this album till your speakers bleed. Here’s the self-titled debut from Calgary’s finest, out now worldwide. Full tour dates after the jump.

Purchase the new album via SC Distribution [cassette / LP / CD bundles including poster], iTunes, Amazon, and your local record store.

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.
