“Black Car” Is The Latest Track From 7, The Acclaimed Forthcoming Album by Beach House

The band will perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live May 16th.

Beach House have shared “Black Car,” a captivating new song from 7 their highly anticipated new album. The dark, atmospheric track rides an undulating bass line along a building, arrhythmic pulse of a drum beat.
 
7 is already earning Beach House some of the best reviews of the band’s career. Stereogum says of the album, “There are great bands that reinvent themselves with each new album, others that hit a sweet spot and stick with what works, and then there’s Beach House. Over their decade-plus career, some might argue that the Baltimore-based band has largely adhered to a formula, but with 7 — their excellent seventh album— it’s clear that the duo has been playing the long game.”  Pitchfork offers this, “The record is one of rebirth, and easily the Baltimore duo’s most apparent sonic departure since 2012’s Bloom.” And The FADER raves, “The result is a weird and thrilling record that not only stands as one of the year’s best, but suggests that when it comes to pushing the limits of what the “Beach House sound” can be, Scally and Legrand are just getting started.”

Beach House has also scheduled a late night TV performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live Wednesday, May 16th. And the band will perform a live in-studio session on KCRW in Los Angeles on May 15th.

Mass Gothic Debuts New Single “Dark Window” - Currently On Tour in North America Supporting Modest Mouse

Mass Gothic have shared their new single, “Dark Window,” the first of more to come (!) this summer on Sub Pop. The accompanying lyric video (as seen above here) was directed by the band and filmmaker Nira Burstein.


 
“Dark Window” finds Mass Gothic complete as a duo, with band members Noel Heroux and Jessica Zambri sharing songwriting and vocal duties. The track also marks the band’s first new recorded material since the release of their self-titled debut and Sup Goth EP, both released on Sub Pop in 2016. Co-produced by the band and Josh Ascalon, mixed by Chris Coady, mastered by Heba Kadry, “Dark Window” is available now worldwide from Sub Pop.


 
Mass Gothic’s Jessica Zambri had this to say, “It was late at night, I started dancing around the studio singing the melody with “la la la’s” and Noel began throwing the chords together on guitar. It happened pretty quickly. There was wine, dancing, then a song.”

Listen to Cullen Omori’s New Single “Four Years” - He’s Got May Tour Dates w/ The Gloomies

Cullen Omori has announced a co-headlining tour with The Gloomies, starting on May 3rd, in San Pedro, CA. This 12 date tour, will have the band stopping in, San Diego, Los, Angeles, San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, Denver and Tucson. See below for a full string of shows.
 
To help get folks wound up for this string of dates, Omori, has shared a brand new track, entitled “Four Years”. In his own words, “the song is meant to be an exchange of perceptions: a duet except sung by one person. The first verse deals with the conviction and singular determination needed to end the relationship. The second verse is the reactionary response to what is usually an unexpected upset to a familiar and welcomed status quo.”

What “The People” have said about Cullen Omori:
“Shimmering beauty” [“Cinnamon”/ “New Music of the Day”] - NME

“It’s bittersweet, blissful pop with an ’80s hue - vocal melodies and hooks that are at once immediate yet demand to be heard again and again. Job well done, Cullen.” [“Cinnamon”] - The 405

“Sour Silk” is the combination of sounds you weren’t sure could be mixed, blended into a song that sounds both effortless and endlessly faceted.” [“Sour Silk”] - Stereogum

“His songs marry dark yet blissful pop with vocal melodies and hooks that are at once immediate yet demand to be heard again and again.” [“Sour Silk”] - Northern Transmissions

“Led by dreamy, glimmering guitars, it takes Smith Westerns’ knack for a poppy hook to the next level.” [“Cinnamon”] - Consequence of Sound
