LISTEN: Yuck "Middle "Sea", New Album "Glow & Behold" Oct. 1


Following on from the gorgeous, swirling, melodic miasma of the aptly titled "Rebirth", comes the next track from the next chapter of Yuck - the effervescent pop verve that is "Middle Sea."
Taken from the forthcoming, Chris Coady produced LP Glow & Behold, it brings frontman Max Bloom's beautifully evocative vocals to the fore for a galvanizing alt-rock anthem like only Yuck know how to do. The ghosts of other indie giants like Superchunk and Yo La Tengo abound for sure, but with horns, driving guitars and deliciously infectious hooks, it is also entirely and defiantly its own beast, and yet another reason to get very excited indeed about the sophomore album, due Oct. 1 on Fat Possum.

Boogarins Signed to Other Music - Debut Album Out October 1


Other Music is very excited to welcome Boogarins to the label! Fernando Almeida and Benke Ferraz met in high school in the central Brazilian city of Goiânia, far from the thriving cultural metropolises of São Paulo and Rio, yet nevertheless in the shadow of the icons of their homeland's great musical heritage -- not bossa nova and samba, however, but psychedelic pop. Still in their late teens, the music they make together, recorded on borrowed gear and with self-taught technology in their parents' basements, shares the spirit and soul of Tropicalismo, but it has also blossomed in the light of the current international DIY underground. Almeida is the poet and singer, Ferraz is the multi-instrumentalist and gear-head, and together, as Boogarins, they write songs that reach beyond their years and any restrictions of geography or genre: timeless pop untethered from categorizations. 

The songs that are collected on As Plantas Que Curam (translated: Plants That Heal) were recorded mostly as a duo, before they ever considered playing live, before they found a rhythm section or even a name -- the Bogarim the band was named for is a jasmine flower the ancients say "smells like pure love" -- and the album speaks with an intimacy and off-kilter fragility that reflects those humble origins. Yet from the exotic psychedelia of "Erre," in which Ferraz's fuzz guitar spirals around Almeida's yearning melodies, to the jangling melancholy of "Doce," there is a sophistication and depth in the songwriting and playing here that shows a rare talent, each track filled with beauty and freewheeling emotion. A snapshot of Boogarins' youthful ambition and dreams, As Plantas Que Curam is a love letter from the green fields of Goiânia to all of us.

As Plantas Que Curam will be released Oct. 1, 2013 on on vinyl, CD, and mp3 by Other Music Recording Co. and on cassette through Burger Records.

Youth Lagoon Show Cancellations


We have had to cancel the remaining Youth Lagoon shows in Europe.  A statement from Trevor Powers:

“I am so sorry to announce the upcoming shows in Oslo, Emmboda, Brighton & Secret Garden Party will have to be cancelled. I recently lost one of my closest friends and I need to be home with family and friends to celebrate his life.  I apologize to all who had purchased tickets, and I'll see you all again soon.  I love you all.”

Youth Lagoon will be back in Europe in November for Pitchfork Paris


Yuck Announce New LP, Listen to 'Rebirth'


Yuck are very excited to unveil the first brand new track from their forthcoming LP.

Gorgeous and chiming, burnished and glowing, "Rebirth" unfurls slowly yet majestically, giving up its charms gradually.  Anchored by lead singer Max Bloom's beautifully assured vocals, it is at once intrinsically Yuck while at the same time hinting at the start of an exciting new chapter for the band.

The much anticipated second album will arrive later this year.  Produced by Chris Coady (Beach House, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, TV On the Radio).
