Van She invite you to enjoy their second record, Idea Of Happiness, their most focused, joyous musical excursion to date. An album stirred by sunbaked travels and fleeting truths, and shaken with the sands of time, Idea Of Happiness was recorded, engineered and produced by the band themselves in Sydney, Australia and mixed in Los Angeles with Tony Hoffer, (Beck, Air, Phoenix and M83). Fluid tropical rhythms saturated in slinky synth bass and the atmosphere from mid-summer night dreams. Catamaran rock, whimsical Fleetwood Mac rips, and unapologetic love songs. This is Van She’s Idea Of Happiness.
Renegade soul-rockers, the Heavy are back with the release of their new album, The Glorious Dead, their third full-length LP, and the follow-up to their acclaimed sophomore record The House That Dirt Built (2009). Self-produced and with their unique, raw eclecticism fully intact, it’s their most fully-realized record yet, mixing together soul, hip hop, rock, blues and funk into glorious, raucous party music that is equally full of heart.
West Coast natives Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti present Mature Themes, the follow-up to 2010′s hugely successful album, Before Today. While the creative process was new, familiar Ariel Pink signatures remain. In fact, Mature Themes feels like the definitive Haunted Graffiti record, a patchwork of modern America, its esoteric reference points and moments of lyrical lucidity a twilight excursion through backwater LA and late-night TV channel hopping.
