Svart Records have set January 27th as the release date for Pintandwefall's highly anticipated fifth album, Red and Blue Baby.
Based in Tampere, Finland, Pintandwefall have prepared their fifth album together with producer Risto Ylihärsilä, who has grabbed the band’s lo-fi aesthetics and steered the group even further, making the rough diamond harsher. The songs on Red and Blue Baby have been created during weekend sessions over the last 18 months, and the first single "Seasimularo" was released in May 2015 already. View the video exclusively HERE.
Pintandwefall - Komi, Manner, Luhtasaari, and Yli-Rinne - point out that their decade-long career has moulded the band and its status into what it currently is. Their s creative vision is bursting with intensity and short on explanations: "Playing together for over ten years, making many of our artistic visions reality and leaving many others be, have made our little group so tight that we often find ourselves even spending Christmas holidays together. In the end, you always return to where you started."
Svart Records is set to release Red and Blue Baby on vinyl, digital, and CD on January 27th. The band will embark on a Finnish tour soon, and continues with a Swedish tour in April
Kate Nash unveils 'My Little Alien' video, UK live dates + confirmed to star in Jenji Kohan Netflix original G.L.O.W
Multi-talented, award-winning artist, actress and activist Kate Nash has released a brand new track and official video titled “My Little Alien.”
Shot in the Californian desert and staring her very own pet pooch Stella, “My Little Alien” is a loving tribute to her rescued “fur-baby” and as the holiday season approaches, comes with a friendly reminder to “adopt not shop” when it comes to rescuing a four legged friend.
"My Little Alien" was written after a trip to Rachel, Nevada, where I saw a UFO for the first time.” Explains Nash. “I took my rescue pup on the trip and I realized she is my best friend and although I have never met an alien she is like my little alien in a way. When I rescued her from a man in a coffee shop who wanted 20 bucks to get off drugs, she saved me at a time when I needed it most. Sometimes it feels like we're both from another planet. This song is about loving the strange.”
On the video, directed by Tyler Monsein, Nash continues. “We wanted to recreate the feeling of being the nomads that we are. Neither of us quite fit into the boxes we should but when we are together it makes sense. So we got back on the road in a vintage Chinook and drove to Area 51!'” Watch the official video for “My Little Alien” here and listen to the track on iTunes and Spotify from today.

Kate Nash has returned to Zone 5 and with her she brings the Summer's finest pop offering 'Good Summer', produced by Dave Bassett and out today via Kate's own imprint Girl Gang Records.
‘Good Summer’ is literally the light at the end of the tunnel, an expression of relief, the type we all feel when the sun comes out and the warmth radiates your skin after 10 months of grey sky, central heating and soggy feet. “I’ve been a referee of my emotions,” sings Nash, over upbeat synths, skittering drums and dance-y guitar lines. It’s about her own return to contentedness in London. “In Britain, in the summer you let go of the stuff on your shoulders and go, Fuck it, I’m gonna get on this banana boat. Go crazyyyyy!’” The video for ‘Good Summer’, directed by Lee Jones and shot in her mum’s garden features all her best girl friends.
A lot has happened to Nash, a BRIT school graduate, since the release of her #1 record and Brit-Award gleaning debut ‘Made Of Bricks’ back in 2007 - failed relationships, record label fall-outs, punk record releases, a relocation to the other side of the world... And so it’s wonderful that the singer-songwriter, activist and heroic spirit is here today, possessed of an impervious rebellion and a lightness of being that makes her ‘give-a-fuck?’ honesty even more contagious. Everything seems to be coming full circle..
Sheffield's finest garage-punks, Nai Harvest, follow a successful headline tour and dates at SXSW with the release of the second half of their upcoming AA single "Just Like You / Jelly" - the melodic and direct "Jelly". This and the recently released "Just Like You" mark the first new material from the band since last year's critically acclaimed full length "Hairball". Stream "Jelly" HERE
The single is released on Topshelf Records on April 29th.

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club give away free 'Let The Day Begin' EP + share new track 'Returning', plus new album and tour details
American garage rockers Black Rebel Motorcycle Club are giving away their ‘Let The Day Begin’ EP for free to fans over on their official site: http://blackrebelmotorcycleclub.com/letthedaybegin/
The EP features three tracks, the studio version of the new single ‘Let The Day Begin’, a live verstion taken from Troubadour and their album cut ‘Returning’, the latter's lyric video can be streamed here:
The band are also inviting their fans to use the #letthedaybegin, #brmc, #blackrebelmotorcycleclub tags on their Instagram photos, to share what "Let The Day Begin" means to them. Photos will be posted on the band’s website.
The band are also gearing up to release their next highly anticipated release "Specter At The Feast", this will be the band’s sixth studio album and is being set for release through Abstract Dragon Records on the 18th March this year.
The band recorded the majority of their upcoming album ‘Specter At The Feast’ at Dave Grohl’s studio in LA on the same console that is featured in Grohl’s upcoming ‘Sound City: The Movie’ documentary (also the same board they recorded their debut album on). Additional recording was done in Joshua Tree, CA at the infamous Rancho De La Luna Studio before they ventured to Robert Been’s hometown of Santa Cruz, CA to record the rest of the album.
“This record took a long time to pull together,” explains Robert. “I think we all reached the breaking point after our last tour and needed to step back for a bit. These songs brought us back to life and gave us a second chance. I've never been more excited to play an album live before, these songs were born to be loud"
Furthermore the band will embark on a March tour of the United Kingdom and Ireland, support will come from The Big Pink (except the Leeds date, sad to say)
