The following artists will be dropping new releases in the coming months…
After presenting us with Leaves in the River in 2007, Los Angeles indie rock outfit Sea Wolf will return on September 22 with White Water, White Bloom. River, Sea, Water … I’m sensing a trend! Produced by Monster of Folk’s Mike Mogis, the 10-track effort was penned solely by frontman Alex Brown Church, but will feature the talents of a full band, including keyboardist Lisa Fendelander, bassist Ted Liscinski, and drummer Joey Ficken.
The “raw” and “dynamic” energy that the foursome developed through extensive touring is said to be reflective throughout, resulting in an album described as this: “Set against the changing of seasons, the record unfolds like an epic poem over 10 tracks. Pulsing with evocations of nature at its most elemental, Sea Wolf’s songs are filled with vivid imagery and a cinematic sense of movement.”
El Perro Del Mar:
Sweden-based El Perro Del Mar, known informally as Sarah Assbring, will unveil her third full-length album, Love Is Not Pop, on October 20 via Control Group. Described as a, “conscious step away from what I did on my last album,” the seven-track effort is Assbring’s attempt to, “look further into ways of writing and expressing myself.” As a result, “the mindset is darker and the soundscape mysteriously groovy,” she goes on to explain. Rasmus HÃ¤gg, the other half of the acclaimed Swedish duo Studio, served as co-producer.
Music Go Music:
The Los Angeles trio known as Music Go Music will make its full-length debut on October 6 with the release of Expressions via Secretly Canadian. The band describes its music as visual and funky pop, and based on the album’s first single that’s probably what you can expect to hear throughout the nine-track effort. There’s also this little anecdote worth mentioning: “No happier thought passes through our minds than that of a bevy of middle-aged women dancing to our music,” Music Go Music proclaims. I think we can all get behind that.
