Coves Debut Album 'Soft Friday' Out September 2; First Single "Beatings" + Lynchmob Remix Out Today

 
Praise From UK Media For Soft Friday:

“Their electro-garage-rock wall of sound imagines The Velvet Underground force-feeding hallucinogens to The Ronettes… cold-blooded revenge pop that strikes like a shard of shattered plate to the heart.” - 9/10 NME

“Borrowing from fellow Reed-acolytes TJAMC, Mazzy Star and The Raveonettes, the debut album from Midlands boy-girl duo Coves ticks all the right boxes - primal drumming, razor-sharp guitars and lyrics that blur the line between romantic obsession and narcotic dependency… very good indeed.” – 4/5 Q Magazine

“a terrific debut full of scuzzed-up guitars, dirty synths, nihilistic lyrics and Wood’s magnificently bored - although never boring – vocals.” – Uncut

“There’s bits of Mazzy Star in here, bits of the Velvet Underground and hints of the Jesus and Mary Chain… atmospheric, distinctive and very enjoyable.” - DIY

“Languid vocals, reverb-treated feedback, narcotized echoes of 1960s girl groups via the Jesus and Mary Chain… a gripping debut album.” – 4/5 Financial Times

UK duo Coves will release their anticipated debut album, Soft Friday, in North America on September 2, 2014. Today sees the release of lead single “Beatings,” along with a remix from Lynchmob, available on iTunes.

Nettwerk Music Group is excited to announce the signing of Australian singer-songwriter Stu Larsen to its label roster. Stu will release his debut full-length album, Vagabond, July 15th (pre order May 13).

Vagabond was recorded at Sydney’s esteemed Linear Studios and was co-produced by Chris Vallejo and friend/label-mate Mike Rosenberg (aka Passenger). A few years ago, Stu left his small town in Queensland, Australia and embraced a life as a bit of a vagabond himself, exploring and embracing opportunities as they came. He has been touring, recording, driving friends tour vans and pretty much anything else that allows him to continue his travels. The album expresses the dichotomy of Stu’s life on the road – his amazing journeys and beautiful observations along the way; contrasted with an inevitable sense of loneliness. He attracted new fans in North America and beyond during his extensive run as support for Passenger in 2013.

Of the video, Caldwell tells USA Today, “We had this idea of going to an old motel and shooting this sort of storyboard about the song. We filmed most of it on an iPhone and then edited it on a Mac. It was pretty DIY, the whole process."

The Trews To Release Self-Titled Album On April 22

A master of story telling, Passenger yet again strikes the perfect balance between the heartbreaking and the humorous, all wrapped in beautiful instrumentation, creating a sumptuous, symphonic sound.

“This is easily the most ‘up’ album I’ve ever made,” explains Passenger. “It’s quite cinematic. There are lots of big stories and big ideas. There are also some somber moments about loneliness and death but, hey, it wouldn’t be a Passenger album without those. Mostly though, it’s a really positive album.”
