*Extra Happy Ghost!!!'s Matthew Swann has formed a new project entitled Astral Swans. The project finds our favorite Calgary lo-fi indie rocker doing what he does best over sparse instrumentation and dense reverb. Check out their first track "Holly" HERE [or below], and look out for their full length later this year. The band will hit the studio to record the record at the end of the month, but not before playing Alberta's NAAG on June 15th and Edmonton's Elevation Room on June 16th.
*[press release] Punk blues duo LEFT LANE CRUISER have teamed up in Detroit with JAMES LEG (BLACK DIAMOND HEAVIES keyboardist and howler) for an album of incendiary cover tunes (Junior Kimbrough, Bob Seger, Hound Dog Taylor, Taj Mahal, John Lee Hooker, and more!). They are joined by Jim Diamond on bass, with 66 year old bluesman Harmonica Shah on harp, and the result is just what the doctor ordered, a hard-rocking gritty album to beat the blues! Check out their tour dates below. The album, entitled Painkillers, will be released June 26th on CD Digipak, Vinyl & Download by Alive Naturalsound Records.

*A message from Earthtone9... "Brothers & Sisters, after the excitement of last year’s Pledge campaign for the ‘For Cause And Consequence’ EP we have kept writing and we wouldn’t you know it – WE HAVE A NEW ALBUM! We are completely stoked with the new material, and we cannot wait to share it with you. Falling somewhere between the face pounding heaviness of ‘Arc Tan Gent’ and the experimental twists of ‘Omega’, it’s a new dawn for us.
And the first step on this new Pledge project is a FREE TASTER! Yep, you can help yourself to the ’Horizon’s End’ single on the Pledge project page HERE. We recorded it with rock uber producer Chris Sheldon (Foo Fighters, Biffy Clyro etc). If you dig it, please, please ‘pledge’. Your support will mean we can unleash every note we have written direct to your ears. Expect loads of updates, behind the scenes shenanigans and total interaction.
