<![CDATA[Grammy Award-Winning Jesse Harris to release <i>No Wrong No Right</i> on February 10th 2015]]> http://dangerbirdrecords.com/news/entry/jesse-harris-no-wrong-no-right-coming-february-10

Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter and musician Jesse Harris will release his upcoming album No Wrong No Right on February 10th 2015 on Los Angeles-based indie label Dangerbird Records.

Harris had his breakthrough in 2003, having written Norah Jones’ first and biggest hit “Don’t Know Why.” He subsequently has had a vibrant solo career of his own, along the way writing for and collaborating with renowned artists such as Bright Eyes, Cat Power, Feist, M. Ward, Mike Patton, John Zorn, Solomon Burke, Willie Nelson, Melody Gardot, and Emmylou Harris.

Visit Paste Magazine for the exclusive premiere of the title track “No Wrong No Right.”

On No Wrong No Right – Harris’ 13th album—he drew inspiration from Neil Young’s approach to After the Goldrush. “Some of that record was done with Crazy Horse, and it’s a rock record,” Harris explains, “but then you also have these hushed acoustic folk songs, and it keeps shifting back and forth between these two distinct moods. I always loved the way that worked, so I started there, but with No Wrong No Right, I also added a third element.”

The three elements Harris speaks of here are a set of full-band tunes recorded with guitarist Will Graefe and drummer Jeremy Gustin of experimental duo Star Rover; a more subdued, acoustic-anchored series of duets with guitar virtuoso Julian Lage; and a trio of evocative instrumental tracks.

The album initially grew out of Harris’ discovery of Star Rover and the friendship and musical chemistry that developed between them last winter. “I fell in love with their band,” Harris says. “I was sort of a groupie, checking out their gigs all the time. One day they invited me over to their loft to play, and it felt great from the first song. Which inspired me to write a bunch more songs.

“Will and Jeremy, musically, are adventurous and free, and at the same time completely supportive of the song. They love to work out arrangements, but they play with a lot of looseness and expression. It’s so hard to find that perfect combination—either people don’t want to rehearse, and just play all over the songs, or they’re too rehearsed and there’s no spontaneity. As a singer and songwriter, I feel like they support the music, but at the same time completely challenge it.”

The duos with Lage – “I Probably Won’t See You For A While,” “Don’t Let Me Pass By” and John Zorn co-write “Kafiristan” – are sparse and disarmingly intimate, offering a refreshing contrast to the record’s more fleshed-out tracks. Harris raves about the musical abilities of Lage, who also plays in duos with Wilco’s Nels Cline and Chris Eldridge of The Punch Brothers. “Julian is a remarkable young musician,” Harris says. He’s a jazz guitarist, but he’s equally interested in songcraft and experimental music. Playing with him is always exciting – he’s extremely sensitive, and has such a beautiful tone. I really wanted to capture our duo on this record.”

The album’s three instrumentals—also backed by Star Rover – continue Harris’ tradition of including a few sans-vocals tracks on every release. The aptly named “Staring Contest” features a loping, repetitive and extremely hummable guitar figure. “Pandora’s Box” is a dreamy meditation on the modern rabbit hole of social media, and “Miyazaki” is a tribute to the legendary Japanese anime director.

No Wrong No Right also features a mysterious and gorgeously wintery rendition of Rodgers & Hart standard “Where or When” bolstered by the organ playing of Larry Goldings (James Taylor). Other notable guests on the record include CJ Camerieri (Bon Iver, Paul Simon, yMusic) on horns and horn arrangements, frequent Harris collaborator Margaret Glaspy on vocals, Mauro Refosco (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Atoms for Peace) on percussion, marimba and electronics, and Sofia Rei – who also performs with Harris in the John Zorn-led Song Project—on vocals.

<![CDATA[New T. Hardy Morris Song "Painted On Attitude" Premiering at Consequence of Sound + Tour with Jessica Lea Mayfield]]> http://dangerbirdrecords.com/news/entry/t-hardy-morris-painted-on-attitude-consequence-of- T. Hardy Morris will close out 2014 with a string of tour dates, including a run with fellow traveller Jessica Lea Mayfield this November, and a special appearance with Deer Tick to ring in the New Year on Dec 31 at Brooklyn Bowl in Brooklyn, NY.

Morris is also releasing a new single, Painted on Attitude, giving fans a taste of the fierce rock band hitting the road and a sneak peek at what is to come sonically from the Athens, GA based musician as he completes work on his sophomore solo album, due in 2015 from Dangerbird Records.

Listen to “Painted On Attitude” at Consequence of Sound and purchase the song & bonus track “Without Fail” direct from Dangerbird Records.

A strangely complimentary mix of rollicking lo-fi southern rock pedal steel twang run through a grunge punk buzzsaw, “Painted On Attitude” showcases Morris’ snarling yet tuneful vocals on the sharp end of the blade. The single is a wry commentary on the lengths to which some go to “do something, oh so unique” by moving to big cities, only to “blend-in and pretend to be busy” while predictably getting swept up in whatever inescapable trend is currently affecting Brooklyn or Portland.

Morris’ sound is a departure as well as a continuation of the blissfully languid approach taken on much of his debut. Morris’ unique sonic lean is a product of his youthful affinity for “good” 90s rock, slamming head-first into his coveted Neil Young records and love of 70s Outlaw Country.

When Morris sat down to write for this new release, he drew upon two former songs in particular. “Share The Needle”, from Audition Tapes, and “Country Mile”, a song he’d contributed to Diamond Rugs’ self-titled debut. Each of those tracks featured a distinct push-and-pull dynamic that ended up bridging the gap between the quieter country leanings of Audition Tapes, and the more aggressive grunge of Morris’ other band Dead Confederate.

To achieve the sound found on the new record, Hardy amassed a contingent of players comprised of the ever trusty Matt “Pistol” Stoessel on pedal steel, Vaughan Lamb on bass, and Dead Confederate drummer Nick Sterchi.

<![CDATA[A. Sinclair Signs with Dangerbird Records; <i>Pretty Girls</i> Digital Release Today & Vinyl Coming October 28]]> http://dangerbirdrecords.com/news/entry/a-sinclair-signs-with-dangerbird-records A stalwart of Austin indie rock and one of the city’s most highly regarded songwriters, Aaron Sinclair has teamed up with Dangerbird Records for the national release of the new album Pretty Girls under the moniker A. Sinclair.

12 songs are released digitally today (available on iTunes, Spotify, Beats Music) and a 6-song 10” vinyl EP arrives October 28 from Dangerbird, the label that launched Fitz and the Tantrums, Silversun Pickups, Sea Wolf and Royal Teeth.

A. Sinclair’s recent releases have drawn the attention of press around the country, intrigued by a sound that the Austin Chronicle described as “tension-driven” with “tight, rough riffs and sharp post-punk lines.” SPIN remarked on the underlying feeling of “twitchy paranoia” that permeates Sinclair’s songwriting, which Baeble Music described as having a “strung-out urgency.”

Aaron Sinclair’s rock passport has a number of notable stamps: First Houston, his hometown, where he initially picked up a guitar with friends and considered it to be a reasonable enough vehicle by which to leave. Then it was on to Boston, where Sinclair established himself in the mid-aughts as a member of The Lot Six, the widely-beloved band that grew out of that city’s fertile Tarantulas punk scene, and with whom Sinclair crisscrossed the country for 4 years, building a steady following on the East Coast until it was over in 2006.

Meanwhile, Sinclair made a name for himself with his own band Frank Smith, the vehicle through which he explored a rootsier sound while touring, recording, and collaborating with friends like Juliana Hatfield, who released two of the band’s albums on her own label.

Later that year, Sinclair made the decision to relocate to Austin in his home state of Texas and rebuild first his band and ultimately, himself. With a fresh start, a new band name and a collection of songs that more than validate the impressive display of resolve, A. Sinclair’s ‘Pretty Girls’ is the sound of an artist crashing ahead, unafraid to dig in even harder on being great, even if it means blowing it all up first.

Paste praised A. Sinclair’s ability “let the music speak for itself” with a sound that can only be described as “full-on rock,” while the critics at the UK site The Line of Best Fit were drawn to the combination of “massive guitars” and “boozy vocals,” with “swagger, melody and timeless drive.”

A. Sinclair visited Audiotree in Chicago earlier this summer to perform several songs from ‘Pretty Girls’ live. Watch the video session here.

A. Sinclair will celebrate the vinyl release with a hometown Austin show on October 30th at the Mohawk, and national tour dates will be announced in the coming weeks.

2. You Gotta Decide

<![CDATA[Minus the Bear to release <i>Lost Loves</i> October 7th on Dangerbird Records]]> http://dangerbirdrecords.com/news/entry/minus-the-bear-lost-loves-october-7th-dangerbird Minus The Bear will release their latest LP, Lost Loves, on October 7th via Dangerbird Records. The seasoned Seattle, WA five piece will embark upon a club tour this fall in support of the new album as well as the 10th anniversary re-release of their fan favorite EP, They Make Beer Commercials Like This. For a band that routinely sells out 1000+ cap venues across the country, the small rooms scheduled for the coming dates will provide an intimate setting for fans to experience the new album. Joining Minus The Bear on the road at various points are O’Brother, Young Widows, and Mansions, and on September 20th they perform at the Sunset Strip Music Festival’s main stage.

VIP Pre-Sale Tickets Available Today, July 28th at Noon ET (General On-Sale this Friday, August 1st).

The follow up to 2012’s Infinity Overhead, which reached #31 on the Billboard 200 as Minus The Bear’s highest charting album to date, Lost Loves lives up to its title quite literally as a collection of hard to let go songs pulled from the band’s past seven odd years of writing, recording and releasing records. “Inevitably some of your favorite songs are going to be cut in the necessity of creating the right sequence for that particular time,” says bassist Cory Murchy. “Regardless of the reason they weren’t included, it wasn’t for lack of love and appreciation of the songs themselves.” Somewhat by chance the black sheep that didn’t quite fit in with Planet of Ice, OMNI, and Infinity Overhead coalesce among their once regretfully forsaken peers. “Perhaps it’s because they didn’t make the past albums that they fit so seamlessly together,” muses Murchy.

Track Listing
01. Electric Rainbow
02. Surf-N-Turf
03. Broken China
04. Walk On Air
05. Patiently Waiting
06. Cat Calls & Ill Means
07. Invented Memory
08. South Side Life
09. Your Private Sky
10. The Lucky Ones

<![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
