On the verge of their first-ever tour of North American and Europe, Loma have shared a new video for “Dark Oscillations,” off their self-titled debut album, out now on Sub Pop. The black and white video depicts singer Emily Cross sprawled out in bed, anxiously shifting as a sliver of reflected television dances in the background.
The spark that led to Loma’s creation occurred in 2016 during a European tour in which Emily Cross and Dan Duszynski’s project, Cross Record, opened for Jonathan Meiburg’s band, Shearwater. After an especially memorable show in Belgium, Meiburg approached Cross and Duszynski about working together. Two years later, their collaborative project, Loma, has released a debut album, and the trio is embarking on a tour spanning 3 months and 12 countries. The dates include a performance at Botanique, the same venue where the three initially decided to create music together. All tour dates are below.
Loma’s acclaimed, self-titled debut is out today everywhere on Sub Pop. Listen to the album now at Spotify / Apple Music / Bandcamp / YouTube then trade yr dollars for it here or in yr friendly neighborhood record store.

Jo Passed and director Justin Gradin have delivered a surreal new visual for Their Prime standout “Millennial Trash Blues”. Director Gradin offers this of the video: “A nightmare on the tip of an eyelash. An astrological garbage dump with burning snowflakes and a trap door. A wild teen awake in someone else’s dream.”
The Grey Estates premiered the video, and said, “The dream world created in Jo Passed’s video for “Millennial Trash Blues” is as dynamic, colorful and unsettled as its single counterpart. The visuals…are unusual and outlandish, the costumed characters and eye-popping imagery inspired by the act of stepping into someone’s dream. And while the brightly painted faces and monster under the bed that appear in the video are memorable, it’s the single that holds it all together; a perfect soundtrack for the nearly four minutes of unexpected and delightful terrors (see premiere March 28th).”
Jo Passed just announced headlining dates in support of Their Prime beginning May 25th in Vancouver, BC at Red Gate Arts Society and ending June 29th in Seattle at Barboza. Highlights include: Canadian Music Week in Toronto on May 12th; co-headline dates with Hardly Art’s Dick Stusso (June 6th-10th; June 14th-18th); and Calgary’s Sled Island Festival (June 21-23).

To celebrate the album’s release, they’ve shared a new video for song “Jesse” directed by Loroto Productions and the band.

It turned into a marathon of playing with toys and goo.”

Their Self-titled debut and Sup Goth EP are available now worldwide from Sub Pop
Mass Gothic has just announced new US tour dates, supporting Modest Mouse’s spring tour for 2018. The dates begin April 18th in Birmingham at Sloss Furnace and wrap up May 11th in Kansas City at the Starlight Amphitheatre. Mass Gothic will be direct support on all of the dates. The group will release an album later this year, and will play new material on these dates. (see below for dates.)
Mass Gothic released their self-titled debut and the Sup Goth digital EP, both released in 2016. The band’s debut, which was released February 4th, 2016, features the exuberant single “Every Night You’ve Got To Save Me” [see here] and the stark “Nice Night” [see here] and was produced by the group, mixed Chris Coady (Beach House, TV on the Radio) and mastered by Greg Calbi at Sterling Sound in New York. Hear the album in full right over here.
The Sup Goth EP, featuringthe single, “A Run,” was released August 5th, 2016. Where the group’s self-titled debut chronicled the depths of depression, Sup Goth is the resulting catharsis. The EP is also a collaborative affair between Noel Heroux and partner / bandmate Jessica Zambri, as it is the first Mass Gothic recording the pair completed together. Hear the EP in full right over here.
