Rhys Fulber, the Canadian-born artist and producer behind Conjure One, releases Like Ice remix EP. “Like Ice” was the lead single from Fulber’s third album, Exilarch (Nettwerk; November 2010). The new EP is a collection of remixes of “Like Ice,” featuring vocals by one of dance music's most sought after voices, Jaren Cerf (Armin Van Buuren, John O’Callaghan, Matt Cerf).
As a member of industrial rock outfit, Front Line Assembly and later, Delerium, Fulber went on to sell a quarter of a million albums in the US and over a million units worldwide with the collaborative album, Karma. On Conjure One’s self-titled debut, two singles – “Tears From The Moon” and “Sleep” – placed #1 on the UK Club Chart and #3 on Billboard Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart. Having worked with a diverse collection of artists – Josh Groban, P.O.D., Sarah Brightman, Mudvayne, Sinead O’Connor, Megadeth, Fear Factory – the multi-talented Fulber brings his expertise to his solo project. Exilarch (a reference to the Jewish leaders of the Babylonian exile) is a nomadic album that travels between light and dark, meticulously incorporating world-influenced instrumentals grounded with haunting vocals, lush textures and subtle electrobeats.
Gusterwill embark on a summer tour on August 2nd in Hyannis, MA wrapping up in Columbus, OH on September 4th. During this five-week run, the band will bring their inimitable and fun brand of alternative rock all over the United States.

Guster continues supporting its latest release, Easy Wonderful, but this tour will also mark the release of a special edition EP, including new material and never released rarities. Since the debut in October, Easy Wonderful peaked at #22 on the Billboard Top 200 and clinched the #2 spot on the Alternative Albums chart. The album’s sunny and extremely hummable first single, “Do You Love Me” was a Top Ten single on the Adult Alternative Album charts, and the band has just released their follow-up single “Architects and Engineers.”

Love Notes/Letter Bombs, the third studio album from LA-based indie pop duo The Submarines, is out today and the love is pouring in! Check out what some of the critics are saying:
"'...the richest, most fully realized Submarines album to date, brimming over with little psychedelic flourishes...and throbbing electronic textures—but more importantly, some of the duo’s prettiest melodies..." -- Metromix (4/5 stars)
"And that’s the Submarines’ secret appeal: They specialize in the sneaky juxtaposition of dark thoughts over bright hooks. Rarely does postmillennial pop music sound so energetic and balanced in its contradictions." -- PasteMagazine.com
"...the music's dichotomies combine to create something beautiful and whole."
-- Nylon Magazine
"...the band's technological sheen and handclap beats are still in place, but an injection of live drumming and studio experimentation provides more room for the expectedly sweet melodies to breathe." -- LA Times Pop & Hiss
Listen to the full album below, and make sure to catch The Submarines on tour starting this Thursday, April 7 in Costa Mesa, CA at Detroit Bar (all dates after the jump).

Nettwerk recording artist, Ladytron, have begun to reveal information about their upcoming 5th studio album. Gravity The Seducer, the follow up to 2008's Velocifero, will be in stores September 13th in the US and September 12th in the UK.
“The title is a lyric from the track “90 Degrees,” which comes towards the end of the album, and is one of the most definitive moments in terms of the album’s overall feel,” says Ladytron’s Daniel Hunt.
After the March 29th release of Best Of Ladytron: 00-10, the new studio album is another chapter after a decade’s worth of evocative, instinctive yet deliberate electronic pop music. "Gravity the Seducer is more of a jump than the last album was, more ethereal & melodic, a touch more abstract in places than we've gone before, baroque ‘n' roll. It was a pleasure to make, took us right through last summer. It's our best record in my opinion," continues Hunt.
Check out The Submarines covering Jesus & Mary's Chain's "Just Like Honey" below. The track premiered on the LA Times Pop & Hiss blog earlier this week, and will be included as a bonus track on the iTunes version of Love Notes/Letter Bombs, out April 5.
