The 1975 Debut New Video for "Girls"

The 1975 have just premiered their new official video for "Girls"! Click HERE to check it out or watch below. On creating the new clip, frontman Matthew Healy explains: "The story of the band who suffer at the hands of a record label shortly after a delirious rise is a tale as old as time. So we kinda wanted to make a tongue in cheek video about it. Twinned with our love of 80’s pop, it’s innocence, grandiosity and conceptual ideas in music videos - we wanted to make a video about a record label’s attempt at enforced conformity. We got our mate Adam down to a studio in Los Angeles at the start of our USA tour, got 4 models and made a video about us not wanting to make a video." You can read the full explanation HERE.

"Girls" appears on The 1975's recently released self-titled debut LP, available now on iTunes. The guys are currently on their US headline tour supporting the album and all upcoming dates can be seen HERE.

Active Child's Rapor EP Available Now

Acitve Child's new Rapor EP is out today! You can purchase it digitally via iTunes, or pick up the CD over at Amazon. A 10" vinyl release is soon to follow.

The six-song EP is a culmination of Pat Grossi's heartfelt journey around the world in support of the debut LP You Are All I See and an introspective year spent writing at his home studio, Rapor, from which he derived the title and inspiration for the new release. Emerging from Rapor with an inspired and incredibly personal collection of songs, Grossi moved to Heavy Duty Studios in Burbank, CA over the summer of 2013 to work with producers Kevin Seaton (Major Lazer, Snoop Lion) & Nick Ruth (Mikky Ekko, Night Terrors of 1979) to complete his vision, which includes vocal features from contemporaries and friends Mikky Ekko and Ellie Goulding.

Active Child will tour this November with support from JMSN and then return home to put the finishing touches on his follow up album, due out mid 2014. Visit ActiveChildMusic.com for all upcoming dates.

James Vincent McMorrow Announces New LP Post Tropical to be Released January 14th, Premieres Album Trailer

On January 14, Vagrant will release Post Tropical, the second full-length, studio album by Dublin's James Vincent McMorrow. James will play a special, intimate pre-release show at Joe's Pub on Nov. 21 before embarking on a US tour in 2014, which will take him to some of his biggest venues to date. On January 26, McMorrow will play London's Barbican as part of a European tour. More shows will soon be announced.

Watch the trailer for the new album featuring a clip of the title track, "Post Tropical," and footage from a forthcoming trilogy of music videos by Aoife McArdle below.

On a pecan farm half a mile from the Mexican border, Post Tropical was born - a collection of sounds and ideas brought to life in rooms where the low frequencies of passing freight trains vibrated in the studio, briefly disturbing the birds in the rafters. And like most new ideas, Post Tropical is hard to describe. It requires attention and engagement. It seduces you towards hidden depths.

James Vincent McMorrow’s acclaimed debut album, Early in the Morning, reached number 1 in Ireland, went platinum and picked up a Choice Music Prize nomination upon its release in 2010. Along the way, there were shows everywhere from the Royal Festival Hall to Later...with Jools Holland, and a breakout hit in the charity cover of Steve Winwood’s ‘Higher Love’. McMorrow’s first record was the formative sounds of a songwriter who suddenly found people giving a damn. “I’m so proud of that album, but I never longed to be a guy with a guitar. You play these songs live as best you can, and suddenly you’re a Folk musician. But the texture of this record is completely different. This is the kind of stuff that makes sense to me.”

All of James' forthcoming tour dates can be seen HERE. James will announce further plans for Post Tropical shortly and the album’s first single is set to premiere in the coming weeks.
