The Goon Sax Announce New Album 'Mirror II'

It's out on July 9th...The Goon Sax are set to release new album 'Mirror II' on July 9th. The end of the band's 'We're Not Talking' era saw Louis Foster decamp to Berlin, leaving behind the group's native Brisbane. This shift seems to brought about an overhaul in his songwriting, with The Goon Sax introducing fresh elements to their music. Out on July 9th through the fine people at Matador Records, new album 'Mirror II' was largely recorded at Bristol's Invada Studios, owned by Portishead's Geoff Barrow. New single 'In The Stone' launches this daring new era, a song set in Berlin and finding the songwriter investigating his new surroundings. He explains: "We were both exploring ourselves - accepting each other's changes and celebrating flux - but also reckoning with the complicated need for a solid sense of self and the person we loved." "Musically the song was influenced by what was playing in the background of our conversations which often took place in Ubers, supermarkets, outside parties etc. So it probably bears more of a subconsciously absorbed modern pop influence than anything else we’ve done as a band." A dose of avant-pop that retains the free-thinking virtuosity of their opening two albums while adding daring new elements, 'In The Stone' is a real thrill. Tune in now.

TORRES Announces New Album 'Thirstier'

It's out on July 30th...TORRES will release new album 'Thirstier' on July 30th. The songwriter decamped to Devon last year to focus on the project, self-producing alongside Rob Ellis and Peter Miles. Thematically, 'Thirstier' focusses on the intensity of joy, with TORRES opening herself up to fresh feelings, and in turn allowing these to inform her art. She says: “I wanted to channel my intensity into something that felt positive and constructive, as opposed to being intense in a destructive or eviscerating way. I love the idea that intensity can actually be something life-saving or something joyous.” “I’ve been conjuring this deep, deep joy that I honestly didn’t feel for most of my life,” she adds. “I feel like a rock within myself. And I’ve started to feel that I have what it takes to help other people conjure their joy, too.” 'Thirstier' will be released on June 30th through Merge Records, with lead single 'Don’t Go Puttin Wishes in My Head' arriving dappled in light. The full video for 'Thirstier' is online now - check it out below. 'Thirstier' tracklist: 1. Are You Sleepwalking? 2. Don’t Go Puttin Wishes in My Head 3. Constant Tomorrowland 4. Drive Me 5. Big Leap 6. Hug From a Dinosaur 7. Thirstier 8. Kiss the Corners 9. Hand in the Air 10.
