Trevor Powers (formerly Youth Lagoon) has announced the release of Mulberry Violence. Out August 17 on his own Baby Halo label, the full album will feature the previously released single “Playwright,” along with the songs “Ache” and “Plaster Saint,” both of which are out today.
Today, Friendly Fires reveal the video for ‘Love Like Waves’. Directed by Giorgio Testi– fames for his work with the likes of Gorilaz, Savages, Damon Albarnand London Grammar among others – the beautifully shot video was filmed on the island of Favignana earlier this month.
Maggie Rogers premieres the video for her new track, “Fallingwater” today on Vevo. Filmed at California’s Imperial Sand Dunes, the video was directed by Rogers’ frequent collaborator Zia Anger.
“Fallingwater,” is Rogers’ first new music of 2018. The song was produced by Rostam Batmanglij and Rogers. Pigeons & Planes names “Fallingwater” one of the “Best New Songs of the Month” and NPR deems it “a powerful, mesmerizing depiction of Rogers’ transition over the last two years- a celebration of the terrifying yet thrilling process of change.”
Indie-folk singer-songwriter and IMF friend Austin Basham is excited to announce his debut full-length album, You And Me For Now, will be released on July 27th via Nettwerk Music Group. We’ve featured a few of the songs on this album already (“All Is Well”, “New House”), with the exception of “Frames” which you can listen to below.

The weather has finally turned around here in Toronto and with the nice weather comes the festival season of great shows happening in the city. One of my yearly favourites is Field Trip, taking place next weekend (June 2nd/3rd) at Fort York. This years’ lineup features Metric, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Alvvays, Japandroids, and Haerts to name a few (full lineup here); always a great place to discover a new band. In case you haven’t picked up your ticket yet, take a chance here on winning a pair of GA weekend tickets to the festival.
