<![CDATA[Ume <i>Monuments</i> In Stores Today]]> http://dangerbirdrecords.com/news/entry/ume-monuments-in-stores-today Three piece alternative rock band Ume released their sophomore album Monuments today.

Download Monuments on iTunes or order the CD & vinyl from Amazon.

Monuments is the follow-up to the band’s heralded debut full-length album Phantoms, which was released in 2011. The new album was recorded in Seattle, WA at Robert Lang Studios and produced by Grammy Award winning producer Adam Kasper (Queens of the Stone Age, Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Cat Power).

“Distortion-heavy jams (and the whole marriage thing) invite comparisons to Sonic Youth, but Ume do more headbanging and wailing.” – Rolling Stone

“If Metric or Broken Social Scene got real and started adding some thick, metallish guitar riffs, they might start to sound something like “Black Stone,” the first track off of Ume’s forthcoming album” – Noisey

“This band is ready to break out in a whole new way… A little like fuzzy shoegaze, raw garage rock and irresistible pop all rolled into one fiery package” – Nylon

“Ume immediately won me over with their raucus bursts of guitar-driven art rock, with front woman Lauren Larson threatening to take the whole thing off the rails with the abuse of her guitar strings. Still, underneath this Ume possesses an air of intelligence and depth rare in a genre known primarily for its copious drug use. When it comes to art, psychedelia, and rock and roll, it doesn’t get much better.” – Village Voice

<![CDATA[Ume to release new album <i>Monuments</i> on March 4th]]> http://dangerbirdrecords.com/news/entry/ume-to-release-monuments-march-4th

Austin rock band Ume today announced that they will release their much-anticipated new album, Monuments, on March 4th via Dangerbird Records. Monuments is the follow-up to the trio’s heralded debut full-length album Phantoms, which was released in 2011. The new album was recorded in Seattle, WA at Robert Lang Studios and produced by Grammy Award winning producer Adam Kasper (Queens of the Stone Age, Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Cat Power).

Preorder Monuments today exclusive on iTunes. Look for vinyl & CD preorder packages to launch shortly!

“We didn’t hold anything back with Monuments. I think Adam Kasper really helped us to capture in a sincere and sonically heavy way that freedom we feel live,” said the band’s guitarist and vocalist Lauren Larson. “For me, each song is a sort of commemoration of a different emotion or experience. One song might make you want to bang your head and the next make you want to hug someone you love. I think it’s these wildly different textures that make us a band and make us all human. That’s what we wanted to communicate — something honest and different through a rock record. We really can’t wait to get this one out.”

Track Listing
1. Black Stone
2. Embrace
3. Too Big World
4. Chase It Down
5. Until The End
6. Barophobia
7. Revival
8. Gleam
9. Oh Fate
10. Barricade
11. Within My Bones

“From the first time we saw Ume we were stopped dead in our tracks by their bold swagger and seemingly effortless upending of so many rock conventions,” said Dangerbird founder Peter Walker. “We are thrilled to help deliver this incredible band and their kick ass new album to the world in 2014.”

“We’re so excited to finally unleash new music,” said Ume’s Lauren Larson.  “It’s an honor for us to be a part of the Dangerbird family and we’re grateful for everyone who’s helped this new record become a reality.”

The limited edition vinyl release features the brand new track “Let It Decay” as well as “Working Title,” a B-side from the sessions for their latest full-length Neck of the Woods.

The 2-song release will be available exclusively at independent music shops. For a list of local stores, visit Record Store Day’s Official Website.

“Record Store Day (now Days) has always been important to us,” lead singer/guitarist Brian Aubert said. “We’ve been lucky enough to play special acoustic shows in independent record stores all over the globe. We get to know these places and feel quite blue when we return and they are no longer open. We believe strongly in the importance of these places and will always do whatever we can to help support these stores.”

Speaking about the new tracks, Aubert said “we’re happy to be putting out this 10-inch. ‘Let it Decay’ has been a song we’ve had swimming around our heads since the beginning of the band. It feels great to have finally recorded it and place it in a nice home. ‘Working Title’ is the only Neck of the Woods b-side. We love the song but it just didn’t work in the flow of the album. Again, we’re super happy for the song to finally get heard.”

<![CDATA[T. Hardy Morris & Transistor Six Premiere "Audition Tapes" Music Video & Lomography Photos]]> http://dangerbirdrecords.com/news/entry/t-hardy-morris-audition-tapes-transistor-six If you’re fearless at 14 you’ll likely be fearless as life continues. If you’re scared of life at 14, well, good luck I guess.” – T. Hardy Morris

T. Hardy Morris and the Austin, TX based independent film, art, and music collective Transistor Six are excited to present the incredibly sentimental and beautifully shot music film for “Audition Tapes”, the title track from Morris’ critically acclaimed debut solo album.

Watch video, explore photos, and listen to exclusive audio session at Transistor Six.

“We wanted the video to be pretty literal,” says Morris, “so we just recruited the boys from the local Austin band Residual Kid to essentially be themselves. We went to a skate park and a few other places around Austin that fit the theme. They were good sports about the video and are pretty fearless. I think they’ll be fine.”

Transistor Six co-founder Cory Llewellyn “Using vintage Super 8 cameras we wanted to have the story told in a home movie kind of way invoking memories versus being too literal. That nostalgic feeling also lends itself in the Lomography photos we shot with Hardy.”

This fall Morris will continue to tour in support of the album, playing shows with Jason Isbell, Television, Drive By Truckers, and along side Willy Mason and more at the Communion Records Nashville showcase. Click here for tour dates.

<![CDATA[T. Hardy Morris "History's Hoax" Live at Hancock County Courthouse]]> http://dangerbirdrecords.com/news/entry/t-hardy-morris-historys-hoax-live-at-hancock-count

The latest video from T. Hardy Morris‘ “Places In Peril” video series (in collaboration with filmmaker Jason Thrasher) has premiered via Paste Magazine.

Watch “History’s Hoax (Live at Hancock County Courthouse)” on Paste Magazine or on YouTube.

Buy album “Audition Tapes“on CD or vinyl from the Dangerbird webstore or download the album on iTunes.

Inspired by The Georgia Trust For Historic Preservation’s annual “Places In Peril” list musician T. Hardy Morris and filmmaker Jason Thrasher traveled to historic sites in Georgia threatened by demolition and neglect to film live performance videos of each song on his debut solo album, Audition Tapes.

The 1883 Hancock County Courthouse was the third courthouse to be built on its site since the town of Sparta was founded in 1795. The magnificent Second Empire style building was designed by the prominent Atlanta architectural firm of Parkins and Bruce. The courthouse anchors the essential center of historic Sparta and has been the site of numerous historic trials and events. The courthouse is still in use but suffers from lack of funding for maintenance and preservation. The building is in a state of decline.
