New LP for Good Morning; The Option

Good Morning recently independently released their second LP The Option, a 17-minute tumble through propulsive guitar melodies and lyrics of concise, casual poetry, recorded live to tape. 

Slightly belying their decidedly no-frills approach to recording and playing live, the band were recently heavily sampled on A$AP Rocky's "Kids Turned Out Fine" and consistently pack out Melbourne venues.Good Morning's early EPs Shawcross and Glory defined the band's initial lo-fi, lazy and laconic sound, and have amassed over 36 million streams on Spotify alone.

Good Morning's US fans will be happy to hear that the band are also excited to be working with agent Anna Benefield of Panache Booking in the US, looking to travel to the States later this year. The Panache roster includes Aldous HardingBikini KillDrugdealerHand HabitsMac DemarcoOh SeesTy Segall, and U.S. Girls, and Good Morning are excited to be included! The band are currently represented in the UK and Europe by Anita Richelli at Listen Agency, whose roster includes Born RuffiansBuck MeekEleanor FriedbergerThis Is The Kit, and Tiny Ruins.

NEW ALDOUS HARDING, FKA TWIGS, GALANTIS, BLACK KEYS and more...

Today, Aldous Harding releases her third album Designer via 4AD / Remote Control Records

Designer finds the New Zealander hitting her creative stride. After the sleeper success of Party (internationally lauded and crowned Rough Trade Shop’s Album of 2017), Harding came off a 200-date tour last summer and went straight into the studio with a collection of songs written on the road. Reuniting with John Parish, producer of Party, Harding spent 15 days recording and 10 days mixing at Rockfield Studios, Monmouth and Bristol’s J&J Studio and Playpen. From the bold strokes of opening track ‘Fixture Picture’, there is an overriding sense of an artist confident in their work, with contributions from Huw Evans (H. Hawkline), Stephen Black (Sweet Baboo), drummer Gwion Llewelyn and violinistClare Mactaggart broadening and complimenting Harding’s rich and timeless songwriting.

ZIPPA DEEDOO What Is/Was/That/This?
The title comes from the chorus of “Song Of Life” . It is a classic rock’n’roll album. Classic if you lived through what has become known as ”the classic rock era” as it rolled out new and even broke onto the beachhead and morphed into punk. That’s the direction Dave Graney and Clare Moore have always been coming from. They have spent their lives schooled by and immersed in rock ‘n’ roll culture. They dived in deep and kept swimming. From the Moodists through the Coral Snakes /White Buffaloes to the mistLY
This is an album with their band, Dave Graney and the mistLY. Stuart Perera has played guitar with them since 1998 and Stu Thomas on bass since 2004.

LIL SKIES DEBUT ALBUM SHELBY

Lil Skies, who recently made waves as he walked in Philipp Plein’s show during New York Fashion Week, joined forces with Lil Pump earlier this week to announce the dates for their 2019 US co-headline tour. 

With over 2 billion streams under his belt, 20-year-old rapper on the rise Lil Skies, who is managed by The Stokey Project which entered into a partnership with Roc Nation this year for management, has been building a massive storm of fans and followers with his angsty brand of high-energy hip hop. Released last January, his critically-acclaimed major label debut mixtape Life Of A Dark Rose was certified Gold by the US RIAA and quickly spawned three singles including Red Roses, Nowadays and Lust . Skies has continued to release a nonstop stream of new music and visuals, most recently holding over his ravenous fans with Real Ties and Name in the Sand, both of which have collectively amassed an extremely impressive 30 million streams in just the past few weeks. Skies hasn’t slowed down in 2019, continuing to release new music including I Know You (feat. Young Pinch)Opps Want Me DeadNo Rest and World Rage, which have collectively been streamed over 200 million times worldwide. Hailed by Rolling StoneBillboardComplexPandora and more as an artist to watch, Lil Skies has an extremely promising year ahead.
