New Video from Blitzen Trapper - Girl In A Coat

Bliten Trapper’s newest video directed by Daniel Elkayam (Blitzen Trapper’s “Black River Killer” & “The Tree”) is a heartfelt and poignant video for American Golwing’s track, “Girl in a Coat”, which stars the band’s drummer Brian Koch and his grandfather, Arthur Koch. Brian Koch, who also wrote and produced the video, stated, "Four years ago I interviewed my grandfather at the age of 96 to talk about his life. I was struck by how, even though so much had become blurry, confused or completely fallen away from his memory, some things remained. Just shy of his 100th birthday, Daniel and I began to create a video from my grandfather’s perspective, blurring the boundaries of time and space in memory. “Girl In A Coat,” with its wearied narrative of retrospection, seemed the perfect match for the concept."



Blitzen Trapper are currently on a headline tour supporting American Goldwing and will immediately follow-up their late summer tour to act as main support for labelmates The Head and The Heart, for a tour that will begin on September 18th in Spokane, WA at Knitting Factory and wrap up October 10th in Eugene, OR at the McDonald Theatre. The band’s complete tour schedule is listed below.

Additionally, fans will be able to stream Blitzen Trapper’s upcoming set at the Newport Folk Fest on July 27th, via NPR.
 More details on that event available on the NPR website.

New Music From Sera Cahoone

Four years after releasing her widely acclaimed Sub Pop debut Only as the Day Is Long, Sera Cahoone is back, and readying the release of her third solo effort, Deer Creek Canyon, scheduled for September 25th, 2012. The 12-track album was co-produced by Cahoone and Thom Monahan (Beachwood Sparks, Vetiver) at Bear Creek Studios. The album features the lead single, “Naked,” (conveniently available for download in the player located above) alongside other album standouts, “Worry All Your Life,” and “And We Still Move”.

Titled for the Colorado canyon where she came of age, where her mother still lives, Deer Creek Canyon ruminates on the gravitational pull of home and delves deeper and with a voice remarkably stronger than on Sera’s previous albums. Read more about Sera and Deer Creek Canyon here.

Sera Cahoone Deer Creek Canyon
1. Worry All Your Life
2. Deer Creek Canyon
3. Naked
4. Nervous Wreck
5. And Still We Move
6. Every Little Word
7. One To Blame
8. Rumpshaker
9. Shakin’ Hands
10. Anyway You Like
11. Here With Me
12. Oh My

Sera Cahoone is currently in the midst of planning a fall tour to support Deer Creek Canyon that will be preceded by a one-off performance on September 1 in Seattle, WA at Bumbershoot Music and Arts Festival.

New Track from The Helio Sequence

The Helio Sequence are set to release their fifth full-length album entitled Negotiations on September 11th, 2012 right here on Sub Pop Records. The album features 11 tracks and is led by the singles, “October” and “Hall of Mirrors”. You can stream “October” as well as get a free download of the track now from the widget above.

If you act early and pre-order Negotiations from www.subpop.com, or buy it from select retailers on CD or LP, while supplies last, your order will come with a quadrophonic companion CD called Aces. The band intended Aces to be played simultaneously with Negotiations on two different stereo systems to create an enhanced spatial experience. Perhaps needless to say, but we like this.

There will be more information on this special pre-order offer in the coming weeks, but for those of you who we had at “quadrophonic companion,” the pre-order is available for purchase now at subpop.com.

The Helio Sequence have scheduled a tour in support of Negotiations which will see the band visiting both sides of the Atlantic this fall. The tour begins September 1st in Seattle, WA at Bumbershoot and currently ends on October 13th in Boise, ID at Neurolux. All current tour dates listed below.

The Helio Sequence Negotiations
