You know him as half of the Foxygen force. Now Jonathan Rado is stepping out with his first solo record. Titled Law and Order, the album will be available on Woodsist come September 3. Get the first (and much anticipated) listen with the track “Faces,” featuring White Fence’s Tim Presley.
Rado and the rest of Foxygen will play a couple of shows this summer. You can check out all their upcoming dates HERE.
Good morning all. Here’s the new video from Lightning Dust. Directed by Helen Reed, “Diamond” features a swimming hole of sorts. Slowly, a group of synchronized swimmers emerge. What does it all mean? You decide. Watch above. You can also check out the video at EXCLAIM! or Gorilla vs. Bear.
“Diamond” is the first single from the duo’s forthcoming album, Fantasy. Out June 25, the record is now available for pre-order purchasing at iTunes, Amazon, and SC Distribution.
We also have the first round of confirmed tour dates, including Oregon’s Pickathon Festival! You will find the full list of dates and links below.
MEET DIANA, Jagjaguwar’s newest band, featuring Joseph Shabason, Kieran Adams, Carmen Elle, and Paul Mathew. You will recognize members from a number of Canadian bands (The Hidden Cameras, Destroyer, Bonjay). Today we are treated to the first official video for Diana’s “Born Again.” Watch above or at Gorilla vs. Bear.
“Born Again” is a single off the band’s self-titled debut, out officially on August 20 in the US / 19 in Europe. Full of lush sounds and melodic hooks, the songs of DIANA aim to entice the listener into a world that is deeper than its surface may let on. Beneath the smooth and silky surface often lies a tightened fist, a Factory Records intensity that pushes things forward. You’ll find the track listing and album artwork below!
Finally! See DIANA live. They are off to Europe next week for handful of dates. Then, it’s back on the road again in late August; this time in support of Austra!

“…it [also] feels very free and liberating, and obviously it’s celebratory and sometimes [even] transcendent for me—that happens mostly when [The Cave Singers and the crowd] are sort of in this together, so there’s like this unanimous spirit.” – Peter Quirk on playing live // Filter interview
You can catch the Cave bros live in concert. They’re currently finishing up a run of dates alongside Bleeding Rainbow, with another tour planned for June. See their full schedule HERE.
