OUT TODAY - King Krule 'The OOZ,' Tour Begins 10/21 in Washington D.C.

You've heard "Czech One," "Dum Surfer," and "Half Man Half Shark" and now the day has come for the rest of the album to be heard, 16 more songs to be exact. King Krule's new album The OOZ (released on True Panther Sounds in the US and XL Recordings in the UK) is coming with a pretty meaty tour, much of which is SOLD OUT.

Those who tuned into Archy's Beats 1 pop-up show yesterday  (broadcasted from his home in South London) heard many new songs, an unreleased demo titled "Swan Lake" as well as “Fraternize” by a band called Uh Oh Chongo, whose members included his mother and his uncle. Listen to that episode HERE.

VIDEO: Courtney Barnett & Kurt Vile + "Continental Breakfast" + Amoeba Hollywood In-Store Announced

This morning, we're happy to share the next take from the upcoming album from Courtney Barnett & Kurt Vile, Lotta Sea Lice. The video for "Continental Breakfast" was directed by Danny Cohen (@DannyZCohen), who was also behind the lens for the "Over Everything" video released last month. This new video also spans a great distance (does not get much further than Melbourne and Philly. It's a really special video and we don't throw that world around too much. Watch and you'll see why.


Director Danny Cohen says:
'Continental Breakfast' was made while spending time with Courtney and Kurt in Melbourne and Philadelphia, it's an intimate home movie into their lives and the time spent with family and friends between recording /touring. Shot on 16mm, the mini-documentary captures honest moments that show the loving and playful nature of both Courtney and Kurt. It was such a treat to experience life with Courtney and Kurt in their natural habitats. It really left me feeling like part of the family and hopefully fans can feel that too.

Algiers - "Cleveland" (Official Video) + New Worldwide Tour Dates



Tomorrow Algiers will begin an extensive North American tour in support of The Underside Of Power. The band have been opening for Depeche Mode in stadiums across Europe the past several weeks, not to mention being spotted in an undisclosed studio location with a disclosed collaborator.

This morning band have just released the official video for album centerpiece "Cleveland" which features the principles of the Black Panthers and was filmed in Staten Island and East new York where Eric Garner and Akai Gurley were murdered by police.



Interlaced with the principles of the Black Panthers’ Ten-Point Program, the video sees frontman and lyricist Franklin James Fisher, who self-directed the video with Marisa Gesualdi and Sam Campbell, between Staten Island and the Pink Houses project in East New York, where Eric Garner and Akai Gurley were killed at the hands of New York City Police Department. The lyrics and title summon Kindra Chapman, Andre Jones, Lennon Lacy, Sandra Bland, Roosevelt Pernell, Keith Warren, Alfred Wright and Tamir Rice, similarly victims of state sanctioned violence, making for a powerful and uncompromising message of resistance and defiance as well as a life-affirming tribute. Fisher also met the family of Eric Garner (photo below) to open a conversation on future support for the community:



"A recurring theme in our music is the idea of injustice and the bitter understanding that obtaining justice in this world is all but impossible--particularly for black and brown people.”
-frontman and lyricist Franklin James Fisher

ALGIERS - 'The Underside Of Power', Out Today, New Dates With !!! Announced






"Walk Like A Panther"
(stream the Uniform remix of "Walk Like A Panther" at Spotify)

"A collection of songs that articulates that fury and despair with such authority, it deserves to become the soundtrack for whatever future documentary montage captures the mess of 2017. It’s galvanizing, uncompromising, and uplifting, and it should speak to everyone who still has some fight left in them." - Sean O'Neal, The A/V Club

Today marks the long-awaited release date for Algiers' incendiary 2nd album, the critically-acclaimed 'The Underside Of Power', available on digital, CD and LP formats at the url below. The first song from the Adrian Utley and Ali Chant-produced masterpiece, "Walk Like A Panther" (featuring a sample culled from a speech by Chicago Black Panther Fred Hampton), can be heard above in lyric video form.

In addition to the previously announced European stadium dates supporting Depeche Mode and this summer's headlining club shows in North America, Algiers have more US dates happening in September supporting !!! (see below).
