Amyl & the Sniffers – the Melbourne, Australia rock band fronted by powerhouse Amy Taylor – just wrapped up their triumphant stateside return for their first U.S. tour in nearly 3 years. The sold out run saw them perform at Coachella and Shaky Knees, as well as make their raucous U.S television debut on Late Night With Seth Meyers, which Stereogum described as “an absolute revelation,” adding that the band “absolutely fucking ripped it.” Today, the band announces that they’re ready to do it all over again with a U.S Fall tour, featuring some of the largest venues they have ever played. Ticket presale begins June 15 @ 10:00am local time and general on-sale begins Friday, June 17 @ 10:00am local time. https://www.amylandthesniffers.com/shows
The super duo of She & Him begin their nationwide tour in Denver on Monday. She & Him is Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward. She + Him’s first album came out in 2008. Their last 2 albums (Classics & Christmas Party) have been cover albums. Their latest album is Melt Away which is due out July 22 on Fantasy Records. Melt Away is a Tribute to Brian Wilson. The latest single is “Wouldn’t It Be Nice.”
The band have enjoyed a friendship, and mutual appreciation, with Wilson over the years and She & Him was previously a guest vocalist on his 2015 album, No Pier Pressure
“In the spring of 2020, we started a list of our favorite Brian songs — a very long list,” the duo explains. “We chose songs without any regard to their chart performance. The obscure ones hit us just as hard as the more popular songs — and all are ripe for re-imagining, re-interpreting, and re-inventing. Brian writes songs of beauty and loneliness and vulnerability better than anyone — and by sequencing them next to popular songs of confidence and love and fun, it creates a more complete picture of life on earth.”
Brian Wilson comments on Melt Away:
“Zooey and Matt did such mind-blowing versions of our songs. The harmonies are beautiful and right on. I love this record!”
Wouldn’t It Be Nice
Til I Die
Good To My Baby

Today, artist and songwriter Tessa Violet has debuted her new single, “BREAKDOWN.” The song is the latest taste of Tessa’s forthcoming sophomore album.
The new single continues the dynamism of Tessa’s new era, delivering a one-two punch of slick alt-rock and earworm electro-pop defining a distinct sonic realm of Tessa’s own. Backed by shapeshifting production, the driving track is a spunky celebration of life’s inevitable lows, of which Tessa describes, “When you hit a new bottom and you think fuck it, dance party in hell.”
Alongside the new single comes the announcement of Tessa’s 2022 N. American headline tour, which will kick off Aug 30 and go on to traverse 23 markets.

Multi-faceted artist and producer Mallrat announces her 2022 World Tour to take her brand new, critically acclaimed debut record, Butterfly Blue.
Hot off the heels of an opening stint for Conan Gray in the UK and Europe, the new tour will see Mallrat playing new tracks from the album such as “To You,” which comes fresh off the back of the year’s most unexpected collaboration, “Surprise Me (feat. Azealia Banks),” and its much loved predecessors “Your Love,” “Teeth” and “Rockstar.”
Sweeping across vast, airy production, Butterfly Blue is often surprising, with samples and sounds tucked under the surface: chopped-up Gangsta Pat bars, a flipped recording of a children’s choir performing Lisztomania, and more. Distorted effects were recorded from discarded children’s toys – a sonic gift from producer Clams Casino. Layered like an instrument all their own, her signature breathy vocals are more assured than ever.

Indie rocker S.G. Goodman announces new September headline tour dates in support of her new album Teeth Marks, set for release June 3 via Verve Forecast. In addition to the new dates, Goodman releases a new live performance video for her single “All My Love Is Coming Back To Me,” a power-pop single that was released earlier this year.
Recently on tour opening for Son Volt and Jason Isbell, Goodman will continue touring across the US, with headline dates including June 7 at New York’s Mercury Lounge. She is also performing at KCRW’s School Night on May 24 at The Sun Rose in Los Angeles, CA. She then tours with John Moreland throughout August, before continuing her headline tour with dates in Philadelphia, Washington, DC, Boston and more.
Mining garage rock, Appalachian folk and post-punk influence, Goodman’s sophomore album Teeth Marks finds her stirring vocals and emotionally astute songwriting draped in a sonic patchwork of southern indie rock. Exploring her embodied trauma of coming out as gay to her Southern Baptist rural community, and the homophobic prejudice and ostracization, that has continued to follow her to this day.
She explores how this kind of trauma will log-jam in the body, alongside examining the opioid crisis, queer dating and unrequited love. Across all 11 tracks the central concept of the indelible mark that love leaves behind, is present. From lovingly confronting a self-destructive alcoholic friend, to confronting herself in the face of unrequited love. A landmark release from one of the most impassioned and idiosyncratic voices of this generation, it will cement her as one of the most exciting acts emerging from the South in many years.

This fall, UK pop singer and songwriter Mimi Webb will embark on her first-ever full-scale headline tour across North America. After completing a US run opening for Tate McCrae this past Spring, Mimi’s solo tour kicks off on September 22 in Vancouver, BC at Fortune Sound Club. She will be visiting major US markets coast-to-coast for five weeks, and it will conclude on October 13 in Washington, DC at Union Stage.
Her recent single “House On Fire” shows no signs of stopping or slowing down.
Today, Australian four-piece The Jungle Giants confirm rescheduled dates for their highly anticipated “Love Signs” tour. Set to kick off October 24 in Vancouver, the band will hit 19 cities throughout the USA and Canada, including stops in Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Salt Lake City, Boston and Austin. Complete list of dates below.
The band—one of Australia’s biggest independent acts—released their latest LP Love Signs last year, which was written and produced solely by the band’s Sam Hales. It features fan favorite “Heavy Hearted,” “Sending Me Ur Loving,” “In Her Eyes,” “Treat You Right” and title track “Love Signs.”
“We are so excited to finally be coming back to the USA and Canada,” says Hales. “It was so unfortunate to have to reschedule the tour but we’re lucky to have some amazing fans out there that have been checking in all the time on when the show will be back on the road. Happy to say October and November, we’ll be hooning all around North America + Canada and our bodies are god damn ready baby.”
Aluna of AlunaGeorge has put together a 3 day dance festival, and surprisingly, has not taken top billing.
The all-Black lineup showcases multiple generations of boundary-pushing artists who continue to pioneer the genre, while also shining a light on LGTBQ+ performers as well. In addition to her ‘Mine ‘O Mine’ collaborator, Jayda G (who appears on the bill), Aluna will be joined by Haitian-Canadian artist KAYTRANADA, Compton vocalist and producer Channel Tres, rapidly emerging London talent TSHA, Chicago house music legend Derrick Carter, and Detroit techno hero Kevin Saunderson, as well as South Los Angeles rapper and songwriter Duckwrth, the acclaimed Harlem beatmaker Austin Millz, Chicago producer and vocalist known for high-profile collaborations in the hip-hop and dance world NEZ, self-proclaimed Jersey club queen UNIIQU3, one of dance music’s favorite vocalists Kaleena Zanders, East Coast singer, songwriter, DJ, and model MAAD, Toronto DJ and producer Bambii, the Jamaican-born New York-based artist Tygapaw, and more to be added ahead of the experience.
Speaking on Noir Fever New Orleans, Aluna states that “This unique experience of honoring dance music’s heritage and getting a taste of what’s to come will reignite a much-needed connection back to what dance music is about – creating a place where people from all different communities can come together and dance their hearts out while feeling free to be themselves.”
Aluna recently joined forces with one of the artists in the festival, Jayda G to release “Mine ‘O Mine.”
Melbourne trio Camp Cope announced a headlining North American tour today in support of their celebrated new album Running with the Hurricane, out now on Run For Cover Records.
Founded in Melbourne over stick-and-poke tattoos, Camp Cope – Georgia Maq (songwriter, vocals, piano, acoustic & electric guitar), Kelly-Dawn Hellmrich (lead bass guitar) and Sarah Thompson (drums & percussion) – have been a force since the release of their debut album Camp Cope (2016).
Camp Cope’s new third LP Running with the Hurricane breathes growth for the trio, both personally and professionally, and sees the band older, wiser, and more at peace with the world. Running with the Hurricane reflects on faltered romances, secret crushes and vibrating with the confidence that makes you feel like you’re on fire. It’s about taking comfort in knowing who you are, feeling yourself and returning, always, to the city of Melbourne.

Led by husband-and-wife duo South Africa-born Jean-Philip Grobler and Germany-born Patti Beranek, St. Lucia retreats from a fractured world on fire and into the glow of a rapturous synth-spiked electro-pop catharsis—like a dance party at the edge of existence. On the aptly titled Utopia I EP, St. Lucia beams out a light of its own and shines brighter than ever.
“In a way, this is my rebellion against the darkness of the world,” states Jean-Philip. “From the beginning, the name St. Lucia came from me making escapist music. In South Africa, there’s a place called St. Lucia, and it’s similar to the island in the Caribbean because it’s where you escape. It’s utopia. There are many ideas of utopia, whether it means virus-free or a virtual tech utopia. It’s easy to feel depressed these days, so I’m trying to bring something joyous to the world. I was sick of seeing stuff on the Internet, and I just wanted to feel good. That’s what being human is about. We have to feel alive, no matter what is happening around us.”
Patti adds, “I feel really proud of the EP. I think there is purity in it that you can’t describe. You just have to listen and feel it. I think that this comes from having another child, being parents, and being thrown into a weird time in our lives. It unleashes things, and I think we did a good job capturing that.”
To support today’s EP release, the group shares a euphoric-pop single, “The Golden Age.” “‘The Golden Age’ is always accessible to you,” says Jean-Philip. “You can blame social media or politics. At the end of the day, we can all somehow find stillness within.”

The Head And The Heart have released their fifth studio album Every Shade of Blue on Reprise/Warner Records.
Of the album, Charity Rose Thielen wrote:
“The past few years have been nothing if not transitional. The people we were at the beginning of the pandemic are not the same ones writing this now. Every Shade of Blue is a collection of songs that celebrates the beautiful mess that we were during this time of transformation. For us it represents that constant dance between the head and the heart, the push and pull of different ideas and voices that add up to be greater than the sum of their parts. It is a record that tries its best to reconcile who we once were with who we are now and hope one day to become.”

They note: We are excited to be pre-selling our new album Spell/Bound on Kickstarter! We’re self-releasing this record, so there’s tons of cool extra options. Thank you for supporting projects like this- we get to be super hands-on and it really improves the quality of what we can make. Forever grateful.
If you’re new to MBD, we’ve been making spooky gothic-western indie for over 20 years. We have always had a very hands-on approach: this album is self-released, and we have assembled a team of a ton of great folks to help us work it. We will be running and fulfilling this Kickstarter ourselves, as we always have, and we continue to work directly with the artists and manufacturers to make the coolest stuff we can come up with!

LP comes to Denver with her smash hit new album Churches. LP first appeared in 2014 with her album Forever For Now. She has proven to be a prolific writer since releasing Lost On You in 2016, and Live In Moscow in 2020. Churches has reached a milestone 2 billion streams, double that of Lost On You. It features the single “Goodbye.”
Asked about Churches latest single “Goodbye,” LP says, “‘Goodbye’ is a blast for the soul. A spring cleaning to free myself and hopefully others from the shackles of my own mind. The light is always there if you want it. I definitely want it.” The lush and captivating Churches was executive produced by Mike Del Rio (Kylie Minogue, X Ambassadors, Skylar Grey).
LP began her world tour last week, and it comes to Denver on Thursday.
Katie Crutchfield is one of the most passionate songwriters of our day. She has released 5 albums: American Weekend, Cerulean Salt, Ivy Tripp, Out In the Storm, and Saint Cloud.
Written immediately in the period following her decision to get sober, Saint Cloud is an unflinching self-examination. From a moment of reckoning in Barcelona to a tourist trap in Tennessee to a painful confrontation on Arkadelphia Road, from a nostalgic jaunt down 7th Street in New York City to the Mississippi Gulf, Crutchfield creates a sense of place for her soul-baring tales, a longtime staple of her storytelling. This raw, exposed narrative terrain is aided by a shift in sonic arrangements as well.
Crutchfield is on extended stay in Colorado playing Aspen, Boulder’s Bluebird Music Festival, as well as Red Rocks with Jason Isbell in May.
