TRUE WIDOW Reveal ‘Avvolgere’ Album Details + Pre-Orders, Premiere “Entheogen”

Dallas trio TRUE WIDOW have announced their fourth album Avvolgere, due out this Sept. 23 on CD/2xLP/DLX 2xLP/Digital via Relapse Records. The forthcoming LP perfects the formula that 2013's Circumambulation established: Avvolgere rocks and rolls with serene, rounded climaxes and steep, jangling choruses that engulf the listener with waves of downbeat, saccharine melodies and mesmerizing distortion. TRUE WIDOW's signature alternation between male and female vocals helps further blur the boundaries between the heft of stoner rock, the droning atmosphere of shoegaze, and the twangy catchiness of blues and indie rock. It's both concise and circuitous - the album takes you on a journey that you can't ever quite predict or expect. Avvolgere is TRUE WIDOW sounding more infectious and consummate than ever before.

New Sounds - Band: DICEY HOLLOW Track: "Rose of Maine"

Self-Titled Debut EP Out July 24th On Dine Alone Records  

Newcomers, Dicey Hollow is the collective talents of Petter Ericson Stakee (lead singer and guitarist of Alberta Cross) and Jamie Biden. Today they have unveiled their latest offering "Rose of Maine." From the duo's forthcoming, self-titled debut EP that will be released worldwide on July 24th via Dine Alone Records.
Petter Ericson Stakee says, "'Rose of Maine' was one of the last songs we recorded for the EP, but the tune is actually one of our oldest. Some late night jams at Jamie's studio in Midtown [New York City] kind of brought it back to life again. It's definitely one of my favorites on the project now."
Dicey Hollow began as an excuse for old friends to finally get together and create some music - that excuse was a film that needed a score. Although the film never got completed, the two were inspired by the collaboration and kept writing together. Whenever time allowed them both to escape New York City, they would head to Mt. Tremper in Upstate New York to write and demo the songs that would eventually make up the debut EP. The result of their collaboration captures an intimate brand of cinematic rock. The six-song EP also features the mixing masterminds of Nico Aglietti (Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros), Claudius Mittendorfer (Temples, Big Data, Interpol, Johnny Marr) and Kyle Pass.
"...graceful kind of alt-country." -Magnet
"...heavy piano notes and a heap of Americana string work."
- Consequence of Sound
"Stakee's high, emotive voice is similar to Thom Yorke's of Radiohead though the band's overall sound is reminiscent of Iron and Wine- slow, Americana folk music that evokes feelings of a midsummer night's reverie." - In Your Speakers
"... a dreamy, almost floaty spin on folk and country." - Baeble

What others are saying about toe:

"Toe continues pushing the already nebulous boundaries of post-rock with apparent ease."- AV Club

"... the thing that's always set toe apart from its technically minded peers is its ability to tell short, concise stories — ecstatic, noodly, complex pop songs that unfold in less than five minutes."- NPR

Ashes & Dust sees Warren recording in the Americana space for the first time ever and features gorgeous acoustic arrangements, folk-based songwriting and his most personal songs to date - some that he has been carrying around for 20 or 30 years but never recorded until now. Warren also plays more acoustic and slide guitar on this album than he has played in a long time. The LP features collaborations with Grace Potter, Shawn Colvin, Mickey Raphael, Oteil Burbridge, and Marc Quinones."

K.Flay kicks off SOL REPUBLIC and DeliRadio Concert Series

Transmissions-LIVE, a live music and interview show based in the San Francisco Bay Area, is proud to announce our second season and the next show will be filmed on November 6th at The Brick & Mortar Music Hall in San Francisco, featuring the artist K.Flay. for a live performance and interview, with special guest Trishes.

Transmissions-LIVE KFlaysecondSeason_sponsors

K.Flay is a rapper, producer from the Chicago area, and her new album “Life As A Dog” is available now on iTunesGoogle Play and Amazon.

An artist who quickly evolved from parody to indie, Chicago-born rapper K. Flay first grabbed the mike while a student at Stanford University in California. It was the frivolous topics and misogynistic lyrics she saw in mainstream rap that first drove her to record a parody of the genre, but she was surprised by both her talent and how much she enjoyed recording. She spent the rest of the year recording and writing, spent her sophomore year performing, and in her junior year, she dropped her debut album, 2004's Suburban Rap Queen. Five years later, her second effort, Mashed Potatoes, appeared with backing tracks that were more electro and indie-oriented, a style that remained in place for 2011's I Stopped Caring in '96. In 2013, she made her major-label debut with the What If It Is EP on RCA.

The crowdfunded and self released album, “Life As A Dog” debuted at No. 14 on the Billboard rap charts, as well as hitting No. 2 in the Heatseekers category.
