Field Mouse: Hold Still Life

Album release: “Hold Still Life” by Field Mouse
Release date: 22 July 2014
Label: Topshelf Records
Listen: on official Field Mouse website 

A make-your-own CD recording booth was privy to Rachel Browne’s first recording in 1999, a cover of No Doubt’s “Just a Girl”. It would be another many years before she enrolled at SUNY Purchase, where she majored in music composition and met Andrew Futral, a producer and musician. The two began collaborating musically and in 2010 Field Mouse was officially formed. Eventually they expanded into a four piece, with the addition of Saysha Heinzman on bass and Tim McCoy on drums.

A mix of dreamy reverb-tinged guitars and synthesizers, Field Mouse blends the hard edges of indie rock with the warmer stylings of dream pop and shoegaze. Their songs lure you in with saccharine melodies and soothing vocals, and turn on you without warning with biting lyrics and a thick layered wall of fuzz guitar. It’s a blend Browne and Futral have spent years working to perfect, and it shows in their live performances and recordings. The upcoming LP, co-produced by Futral and Browne, marks Field Mouse’s first full-length. The album was recorded at Seaside Lounge, Brooklyn & Let Em In, Brooklyn and mixed by Kyle Gilbride (Swearin’, Waxahatchee, Upset).

The band released their first 7” single in February 2012, You Guys Are Gonna Wake Up My Mom, on Small Plates Records. This was followed in October 2012 with another 7” release, How Do You Know, through Lefse. Field Mouse was eventually rounded out with the addition of Saysha Heinzman on bass and Tim McCoy on drums, and in Spring of 2013 the band embarked on a six-week tour supporting Laura Stevenson as she played across the U.S.

Upon their return from tour the band wasted no time arranging their album. Inspired by burgeoning adulthood, social overload and isolation, life in New York, and the realization that life is going by with a terrifying swiftness (plus a handful of breakup songs to boot), the band wrote and recorded their album in late 2013. It marks the first full-length album that’s been written and released as a full band.

Writing and performing as much as possible, Field Mouse shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon, and hopefully will be coming to your town. Just don’t expect any covers of “Just a Girl.”

You Blew It! to release Weezer covers EP

EP release: “You Blue It” by You Blew It!
Release date: July 15 2014
Label: Topshelf
More information / pre-orders: via Topshelf website 

Orlando, FL’s You Blew It! have announced details for their upcoming Weezer covers EP called “You Blue It”. Topshelf Records will release the EP digitally on July 15, followed by a vinyl release on August 12.

The 5-song EP, consisting of You Blew It!’s take on 5 classic Weezer tracks, follows on the heels of the 20th anniversary of the beloved alternative rock band’s eponymous debut studio LP, commonly referred to as “The Blue Album”.

You Blew It! front man Tanner Jones says, “The Blue Album means a lot to us. Aside from them being one of the few bands we can unanimously agree on, they’re one of the most defining bands of our generation. I’m not sure that we would be a band without Weezer, so this was just the best way we could come up with to pay tribute to them. Plus holy shit it was fun. Oh and “You Blue It” was too good of a pun to pass up so whatever.”

“You Blue It” was engineered by Matt Wilbur and Matt Burns and produced by Wilbur, Burns, and You Blew It. It was recorded at Vanguard Room in Lakeland, FL and mastered by Dan Coutant at Sun Room Mastering.

Andrea Balency's "Walls" EP out on June 23

EP release: debut EP ‘Walls’, co-produced by Airhead
Release date: 23 June
Label: Bataille Music
Listen on: official Andrea Balency site 

A 22-year-old part-Mexican, part-French digital native world citizen (now living in Paris, but previously in NY, Mexico DF, London and Buenos Aires), Andrea Balency was spotted in 2010 as one of the most promising and exciting musical presences in the Mexican art-rock scene and singled out by James Blake (R&S, Universal), Inc. (4AD), Au Revoir Simone (Moshi Moshi) and Mount Kimbie (Warp), among others, as a supporting act. In April 2013 she was chosen by The Cure to open the closing gig of their worldwide tour in the main Mexico DF stadium “Foro Sol” for 50,000 people. 

She played SXSW and Sonar before settling in Paris to start working on a new EP, WALLS, an eclectic mix of elegant hooks and soul-tinged indie electronica to be released on the 23rd of June 2014.

Having recently collaborated with avant-garde US and UK-based producers like Nick Hook & Los Angeles electro wunderkind Salva, she secretly supplied lead vocals on James Blake’s collaborator Airhead’s critically acclaimed single “Autumn”. Following a standout collaboration with New York based rapper Kilo Kish and with former Young Turks act We Are Shining’s new track co-written by FKA Twigs due to be released, Andrea sheds her high-brow classical piano training, blue-eyed English soul and both French and South American folk inspirations to plunge into washes of expansive electronica and dreamy, suggestive vocal textures in her solo project.

“You’ve Never Been Alone”, the first single from the WALLS EP, was co-produced by Rob McAndrews aka Airhead, recently acclaimed by Pitchfork for his debut album “For Years” (R&S, 2013), and mixed by the stellar French sound engineer Stephane “Alf” Briat (Air, Phoenix, Sebastien Tellier, Francoise Hardy, etc.). The song gives an original, continental answer to the UK based “twisted R&B-sung-by-cutely-breathy females scene” (The Guardian) that has been much-trumpeted lately. With its interrupted, intricately detailed and effects-washed sound, “You’ve Never Been Alone” is an idiosyncratic yet fiercely melodic, groove-based pop hit. Throughout her EP, Andrea explores relationships, restlessness and dislocation, using a smorgasbord of sounds to dig down into the heart of her nomadic upbringing.

File Andrea’s ethereal deep soul dubstep sounds and her fairy-like unique voice next to AlunaGeorge, FKA Twigs, Little Dragon, The XX & SBTRKT and you will not regret it. Currently writing her first album, which will feature a collaboration with Mount Kimbie, Andrea Balency is a beautiful singer you don’t want to mess with. It’s time to let you go.

Reaction

 

“Here’s a new name for you, Andrea Baleeency, franco-mexican, You’ve Never Been Alone” – Gilles Peterson, BBC 6Music (Single Premiered on his 6Music Worldwide show, May, 2014)

“Exquisite new single. Suitable for majestic casual lovers and dance floor demons. It sounds a bit like a nouveau electronica version of CocoRosie, with that light voice staggering against broken beats. Stunned from first listen.” – Indie Shuffle

‘Sounds incredible.’ – Red Bull Music Academy
