Quadron have a new (acoustic) video out for their track, Hey Love. Check it out below.
The group have a new LP, Ava
Soulwhirlingsomewhere just released a new "name your price" ep, Sleeplike, on Bandcamp.
Soulwhirlingsomewhere first emerged on Projekt Records in the 1990s--producing records of hearfelt, ethereal music that calls to mind everything from Red House Painters to Brian Eno and a slew of other acts.
Don't let this foolish exercise in comparison feel you; Michael Plaster created, and creates, something all his own as well. His music is like a fingerprint, when you hear it you know it is his.
Scout Niblett has a new video for the track, Gun, off her soon to be released LP. It's Up To Emma is the title of the LP and it comes out on Drag City May 21, 2013.
Niblett is out and about as Snow White (wait for the Disney lawsuit..1..2...3...).
