Music: Tiger Waves Premieres "Weekends"

Tiger Waves

12/11/13 - More Info From The Publicist: Tiger Waves know the tyranny of distance, and they seemed to have tamed it for their purposes. In the spring of 2011, the foundation was laid online between two songwriters—James Marshall in Austin, Reid Comstock in Chicago. Tiger Waves is a band born of dropboxes, email attachments and CD-Rs and while the two principal songwriters living 1,000 miles apart. The music, however, isn’t necessarily the cold, detached product of two kids with MacBooks. It sounds more like a bit of cosmic sunshine-pop-flavored zeitgeist made by two music fans with some digital constraints and liberties. And one of them is a philosopher, sometimes you can totally tell. After Reid relocated to Austin, the duo expanded into a quartet—adding the guitar virtuosity and songwriting prowess of a young Tyler Wharen and the steady drum rhythms of an even younger Joshua Kerl.

On December 17th, Tiger Waves will release their debut single, "Weekends" on Canvasclub, the new singles series by Canvasback Music.

Canvasback Music is home to an eclectic roster of artists including Alt-J, Grouplove, The Joy Formidable, Frightened Rabbit and The Orwells. Canvasclub, a one off singles series will release music from an array of artists. For more information on future releases visit www.canvasbackmusic.com

Music: Scavenger Hunt Debuts "Lost"

Scavenger Hunt

12/06/13 - More Info From The Publicist: Los Angeles is a city brimming with opportunity. When Philadelphia native and established music composer Dan Mufson moved to LA in 2011 he quickly realized that in this city creative minds often meet at opportune moments. Every name and every phone number increases the odds of achieving a goal, or helping someone with theirs. Dan likened the process to a scavenger hunt. When he first heard the enchanting voice of Jill Lamoureux -- herself a Wichita, Kansas transplant -- he knew he needed to work with her. So he called Jill the very next day and invited her to his studio to lend her voice to project what he was producing. The multi-instrumentalist producer and the jazz/folk singer enjoyed the writing process so much they decided to collaborate on a recording project. For Dan and Jill, the Scavenger Hunt led them to one another. Now the duo are forging an exciting, dreamy electro-pop sound that is attracting listeners on both coasts. Less than 48 hours after releasing their debut single "Lost" it was played on University Of Pennsylvania's WXPN. Since then, the track has received blog acceptance by Pigeons and Planes, Indie Shuffle and The Burning Ear. Scavenger Hunt's first EP is slated for a 2014 release. The duo make their debut with the single "Lost". Stay tuned for their EP in early 2014.

Music: Pillar Point Announces Debut LP, Premieres "Eyeballs"

pillar point

12/04/13 - More Info From The Publicist: It shouldn’t come as a surprise if something about Pillar Point’s nine-song self-titled album sounds familiar. Despite being the band’s debut, the moody, melancholy electronica is the work of Scott Reitherman, who until now has been primarily known for his involvement with indie-pop outfit Throw Me the Statue. And while Reitherman’s new project shows off a never-before-seen gloom, his knack for writing tracks that crystalize emotion and work their way into a listener’s guts isn’t at all obscured.

The album, produced by Reitherman’s longtime collaborator Charlie Smith, is a musical departure for the Bay Area native. As Reitherman explains, “Part of what steered me toward the textures and beats of dance music was the feeling of catharsis you can experience through dance." It’s a noble idea, considering the themes Reitherman’s songs are dealing with: heartbreak, loneliness, aging and isolation in an increasingly connected world.

Tracks like “Eyeballs,” a haunting, powerful ode to the solitude brought about by social networks, offer a sleek take on anguish that wouldn’t be out of place alongside early Depeche Mode; “Echoes” and “Cherry” are ethereal, evocative explorations of what Reitherman calls “that apathetic, shell-shocked feeling young people have when they’re trying to figure out what to do with their lives.” Considering the beats Reitherman has created, those young people might plan to spend the rest of their lives furiously dancing.

As the lyrical content reveals, Pillar Point is also a far more intimate project than anything Reitherman has ever embarked on. It's no coincidence that his own heartbreaks led to the songs that make up Pillar Point. They’re bleaker than his previous work and exhibit a growth in both songwriting and orchestration.

"Writing darker songs with dance elements helped me to process the confusion and change I was experiencing in my own life because within the confines of a pop song I could control little moments of clarity and redemption," he says. "And for the listener it adds depth to what might otherwise be just dance music.”

Born out of a two year recording process between Reitherman and Smith that stretched from Los Angeles to the Bay Area and ultimately Seattle, where Reitherman has once again settled, Pillar Point marks not only a fresh musical approach, but also a new mindset for writing songs. “One of the things I wanted to do differently,” he says, “is to lay it all out on table this time, to make my songs more bare and personal.”

The songs on Pillar Point are certainly those things, but they’re also exciting, intricate and impossible to stop listening to. There’s a heartbroken quality to them, sure, but one that seems like it might be cured if only we all close our eyes and move our feet until all is forgotten.

Music: Netherfriends Premieres "Joey Vision"


12/04/13 - More Info From The Publicist: Shawn Rosenblatt, professionally known as Netherfriends, began his career in the mid-aughts composing layered indie-pop music after graduating from Chicago's Columbia College. He spent nearly a decade touring constantly, sometimes with other musicians, playing thousands of shows and releasing dozens of musical projects and unique online components.

In early 2012 he shifted from doing straight indie-pop, layered-noise tunes to more hip-hop inspired rhythms, utilizing original and sampled sounds. In 2013, he went into his Coyote Hearing Studios and recorded what would become his debut LP "P3ACE" (pronounced three-peace). With his honed fundamentals still in place, his new studio tunes found more depth and dimension. His first release from P3ACE, "Uptown Boys", was hailed by Consequence of Sound as a "new stoner anthem" with a "contagious punch, the song bumps in all the right spots." Spin magazine who premiered the song, said it was a "a skittering, bass-knocking piece of pop that finds our hero stoned and dreaming."

Netherfriends' newest track "Joey Vision" finds him on the other end of the emotional spectrum; tuned-in instead of dropped out. Heated with fury rather than floating and buoyant The song has a Fugazi-laced urgency and a delivery inspired by great new wave songs. Years of frustration and tireless effort find Shawn scolding the audience with an ironic yet honest declaration of taste. You never can tell if he is bragging, complaining, or both.

Netherfriends is a unique artist who somehow manages to toe the line between being honest and overbearing. He is an artist that has a dedicated cult following who recognize that he creates art that is unique from anything anyone else is doing. As Shawn (Netherfriends) has admitted, he will continue to create art in various genres. He refuses to be pigeon-holed as a specific type of artist, and resents anyone who thinks he must.

'P3ACE' is set to be released as a free download on March 3rd, 2014.
