Adam Torres announces U.S. tour dates in support of new releases

Austin folk songwriter Adam Torres has announced a series of U.S. summer tour dates in support of his EP, Came to Sing the Song, and his LP, Pearls to Swine, both out now on Fat Possum Records. Torres' releases are melancholic, introspective journeys, carried along by intricate acoustic fingerpicking and Torres' signature ethereal falsetto. The tour kicks off July 27th at Antone's in Austin. Watch the official video for "Juniper Arms," off Pearls to Swine, below. - Ethan Ames


The Naked Tungs releases debut EP

Austin's The Naked Tungs recently released their debut EP, Hear It Calls, an intriguing blend of garage, new wave and roots rock which showcases the band's natural pop sensibility and charming lo-fi character. With subtle time signature changes and diverse instrumentation - from touches of pedalsteel guitar to lead tones reminiscent of Hendrix and The Clash - each song in the five track release has its own unique structural and tonal flavor. Hear It Calls is a promising introduction to a band with potential. Check out the title track below! - Ethan Ames

NYC Artist on the rise! The Skins play Mercury on 06.27

Brooklyn's soul band The Skins is a tantalizing blend of '90s R&B and contemporary hip-hop. On their 2016 EP, Still Sleep, each song is tightly hook-oriented and provides sense of urgency to the entire five-track release. The Skins' sound has evolved rapidly from a more rock-based aesthetic, as evidenced on their 2014 track, "Pump Up The Speed." The Skins will be playing Mercury Lounge on June 27th, and then head to the Bumbershoot Festival in Seattle on September 1st. Check out the video for breakout single "Bury Me" below, it got more than 100k plays on Youtube! - Ethan Ames

New Track: "Building The Ark" - Slaughter Beach, Dog

Though Modern Baseball is currently on an indefinite hiatus, Jake Ewald (thankfully) continues to record and release his solo efforts under the moniker Slaughter Beach, Dog, with assistance from MoBo bassist Ian Farmer. Ewald will be dropping a new four-song EP Motorcycle.jpg on July 14 via Lame-O Records. You can take a listen to the album's lead single, "Building The Ark," below. He also has plans for a full-length release later this year, which is definitely more good news for die-hard MoBo fans. Slaughter Beach, Dog will be headlining Johnny Brenda's on Thursday, August 17, with support from Lame-O labelmate Shannon Moser. (Photo by Jess Flynn)

Gold Casio Dive Deep with "Gold Mine"

 Gold Casio are the masters of local disco. Their live performances are engaging and visually stimulating, with their aesthetic falling somewhere in between disco royalty and yacht rock magic. Glitter, gold and a whole hell of a lot of dancing are always on the menu with Gold Casio, so when they teamed up with the ethereal jazziness of Coco Columbia an entirely new sonic aesthetic was created.

Coming off their latest the Fever Dreams EP, "Gold Mine" is appropriately named hit of electropop that you can't help but groove to. Gold Casio gave us some cosmic responses to a few questions about the track. Give them a read below, but make sure you're blasting "Gold Mine" as you do it.

What inspired "Gold Mine" thematically?

Sparkling harpsichord from another dimension, poolside sunsets from past lives, winter nights with too much smoke and too many mirrors, pretending you're on a beach anywhere else.

Why the choice of collaborating with Coco Columbia on the track? Were there other artists in the running?

Astrological tendencies, geographical convenience, and divine intervention. Our human vessels and their interconnections predate both musical projects, the song was born before the identity of either had made waves on the scene. 

How did fans initially react to the Coco/Casio pairing and the song in general?

Quite well!

Will we be seeing more features from other artists on GC tracks? What other projects does the band have in the works?

Many more collaborations coming down the line, some with artists you probably already love and some you'll love soon!
