Ashe

Today, California-based, RIAA Platinum-certified singer-songwriter Ashe revealed the October 14 release date of her highly-anticipated forthcoming sophomore album Rae (via Mom+Pop Music).

Rae

The announcement came alongside the release of Ashe’s new single and video “Angry Woman,” which she has been performing to 50,000 fans around the world during her sold-out Fault Line Tour.

“‘Angry Woman’ is my enough is enough record,” proclaimed Ashe. “There’s always been this sense that as a woman in this world I’ve needed to ‘behave’ and ‘play nice,’ cutting off all this power and confidence that as women we should be demonstrating on a daily basis. ‘Angry Woman,’ in many ways, is about being fed up with abuse of power and that it sometimes takes a little righteous anger to make a change. Especially in today’s climate, I want to see women getting a little angry, because we should be.”

The “Angry Woman” music video was inspired by Yoko Ono’s famous 1964 cut-piece performance in which she encouraged audience members to cut off a small piece of her clothing, which was theirs to keep. Ashe reimagines this original concept and adapts it to the Rae album era themes of feminine liberation, celebration and confidence.

“I felt Yoko One’s cut-piece performance was very empowering and related to the song I wrote and how it feels to be a woman in America in 2022,” said Ashe. “I was very inspired and wanted to pay homage to it in the ‘Angry Woman’ video.”

After debuting the song on her sold-out Fault Line Tour, California-based platinum singer-songwriter Ashe has today officially released her new single “Hope You’re Not Happy” via Mom+Pop Music.

Ashe’s dusky delivery coasts over embers of acoustic guitar and a soft beat on the anthemic breakup track. Her voice swoons on the string-laden refrain, “I hope you’re not happy without me.”

“Some songs are about acceptance and moving on; wishing someone the best even though you’re not together anymore,” said Ashe. “This is not that song. ‘Hope You’re Not Happy’ is about the harsh truth that us all at some point hope the person we’re no longer with is miserable without us.”

After she wraps her Fault Line Tour, Ashe will head back out on the road for a string of U.S. summer dates on her just announced Is It Me Or Is It Hot Tour.

April 28th, 2022

The innovative, multi-platinum Canadian duo Tegan and Sara have shared a new single today, “Fucking Up What Matters,” the first music they’ve released since signing with new label Mom+Pop Music.

Introducing the next exciting chapter in twin sister Tegan and Sara Quin’s musical career, the biting, propulsive slice of power pop single reflects on the turbulence the twins felt in both their own lives and the world at large over the past several years. “Fucking Up What Matters” was co-produced with John Congleton (Sharon Van Etten, Angel Olsen and Future Islands) and will be found on their forthcoming tenth album. It’s accompanied by a Tony Wolski-directed video featuring High School stars Railey and Seazynn Gilliland.

“Fucking Up What Matters” felt like an ode to the moment in your life when you realize that you have most, if not all of the things you wanted and you start to think about what would happen if you just walked away from it all. It’s the moment in the middle of the night when you start to daydream about something else, something you never imagined.  It’s the feeling you have when you think you might have hit a new low, and yet you’ve never felt so good.  Sometimes it’s admitting that you can’t stop yourself from fucking up what matters, that you feel your strongest.  And as my mom would say, it’s often when we’re fucking up what matters, that we’re learning the most about ourselves.

“Michael Goldstone signed us to Sire/Warner in 2006.  We had just made The Con and felt like the vision Goldie and the team at Sire had for us and the album were a good fit.  But soon after he signed us, he left to start Mom+Pop.  We never held it against him.  But joked that one day we’d work together for real,” Tegan and Sara said, explaining the move. “So it was with great enthusiasm that we agreed to sign to Mom+Pop when our deal with Warner ended in 2021.  We look forward to being back at an indie label, on a brilliant roster, with Goldie and the label’s incredible team helping us start this next chapter in our lives with the release of our tenth album.”

Ashe

Today, California-based platinum singer-songwriter Ashe releases “Another Man’s Jeans” (out on Mom+Pop Music) alongside a stunning music video.

On the inspiration for the track, Ashe proclaimed:

“‘Another Man’s Jeans’ is about unashamed and uninhibited confidence, loosening up and having a good time. It sounds like what carefree feels like. It’s sexy! And loud! And fun! It’s a reminder to not take life too seriously.”

Following a three-day shoot at the W Hotel in Punta Mita, Mexico, Ashe, whose music videos are shot exclusively on film, returned to the US only to find out a week later that all of the footage was unusable. It was the biggest production she had ever done and took months of preparation. The news was devastating to say the least but nonetheless she made it back to Mexico to re-shoot the entire thing.

Ashe will spend the spring touring North America and Europe as part of her Fault Line Tour, which sold out one year in advance. She is also confirmed to perform at Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, TN on June 18, Osheaga Festival Musique Et Arts in Montreal, QC on July 29 and Mo Pop Festival in Detroit, MI on July 31.

January 11th, 2022

Acclaimed indie pop band Lucius returns with their highly-anticipated new album Second Nature—set to be released April 8 on Mom + Pop Music (U.S. and Mexico), Dine Alone (Canada), Second Nature Records/Secretly Distribution (RoW). Produced by Dave Cobb and Brandi Carlile, the album features ten new songs, including the first single, “Next To Normal,” which is out today.

In celebration of the album, the band will embark on a North American headline tour this spring followed by a series of European shows in September.

Second Nature is a portrait of singer and songwriters Holly Laessig and Jess Wolfe’s shared reflection, chronicling each other’s seismic life shifts—motherhood, divorce, unplanned career pauses—and setting it to music.

“It is a record that begs you not to sit in the difficult moments, but to dance through them,” says Wolfe. “It touches upon all these stages of grief—and some of that is breakthrough, by the way. Being able to have the full spectrum of the experience that we have had, or that I’ve had in my divorce, or that we had in lockdown, having our careers come to a halt, so to speak. I think you can really hear and feel the spectrum of emotion and hopefully find the joy in the darkness. It does exist. That’s why we made Second Nature and why we wanted it to sound the way it did: our focus was on dancing our way through the darkness.”

Of working on the project Carlile shares, “Lucius has been one of my favorite bands since their first studio album. I kept running into them at festivals and finding myself mystified by their power. This album feels like home to me and anyone growing up surrounded by 80s and 90s pop, but somehow Second Nature is the beginning of a new era—not just for Lucius, but for all of us. We need to get back up on our feet and that’s what this album is insisting we do. This is my first co-production with my dear pal Dave Cobb and I don’t know if I’ve ever been prouder even to witness something let alone get my hands on it. It was an absolute blast.”

Sunflower Bean

New York trio Sunflower Bean—Julia Cumming (she/her), Nick Kivlen (he/him), and Jake Faber (she/they)—released their sophomore album Twentytwo in Blue in 2018, which skyrocketed to the UK’s Top 40, and quickly followed it with 2019’s King of the Dudes EP, which saw the band’s Triple A debut with “Come For Me.” Since then, the band opened for Bernie Sanders and The Strokes in New Hampshire, Cumming appeared on Yves Tumor’s “Strawberry Privilege,” and the band toured extensively with the likes of Beck, Cage the Elephant, Interpol, Courtney Barnett, and more, while also playing countless festivals internationally.

Now the band returns with their first new material of 2021. Alongside the announcement of new U.S. tour dates, Sunflower Bean release a new song entitled “Baby Don’t Cry.” Written by the band, produced and mixed by UMO’s Jacob Portrait, co-engineered by Jake Faber and Portrait, and recorded between Electric Lady and Sunflower Bean Studios, “Baby Don’t Cry,” out now via Mom + Pop Music, is an exciting taste of what’s to come from Sunflower Bean in 2022.

The band says of the new song, “So many things in our lives are disposable. Content and news is consumed and discarded leaving us unfulfilled. ‘Baby Don’t Cry’ is about enjoying the real. The things right in front of us that give us meaning and how sometimes, even sad songs can give you that warm feeling of hope.”

Courtney Barnett’s new album Things Take Time, Take Time is out November 12 on Mom + Pop Music. Today she releases the track “Write A List Of Things to Look Forward To.”

“Write A List of Things To Look Forward To” takes its name from the technique one of Barnett’s friends advocated for her to get her out of a depressive funk, and paints a bittersweet picture of small wins and the circle of life. “

“I found a deeper communication with people in my life – deeper conversations”, Barnett notes of this new phase. “And a new level of gratitude for friendships that had been there for so long that I had maybe taken for granted”.

The latest track also arrives with a wholesome and heart-warming video by Christina Xing, featuring Barnett as sender and recipient of a series of gifts and letters. @courtneymelba

Sleigh Bells – comprised of producer/guitarist Derek Miller and singer Alexis Krauss – are thrilled to announce their sixth album, Texis, set for release on September 10, 2021 on Mom + Pop Music.  A new track from the album, entitled “Justine Go Genesis,” has been released today.  “Justine Go Genesis” was one of the first songs written for Texis; Miller sent an early demo of the song to Krauss in 2018, feeling excited about its ultra-fast tempo but slightly self-conscious about his cartoonish, over-the-top metal riff.  Krauss clicked with the music right away and wrote her bright, unabashedly poppy melody within a few hours of receiving the track, resulting in a song that sounds like the unexpected intersection of Metallica, Spice Girls, and ‘90s drum and bass.

The video for the track, shot on 16mm film and directed by Alex Ross Perry (Her Smell, Queen of Earth, Golden Exits) and Derek Miller with Cinematography by Sean Price Williams (Good Time, …Heaven Knows What), picks up where the band’s video for Texis single “Locust Laced” left off, referencing early 80’s horror films, The Twilight Zone, the band’s own incredible live show, and more. This is the band’s second collaboration with Perry and Williams, who previously worked on the video for “I Can Only Stare”.

Sleigh Bells – comprised of producer/guitarist Derek Miller and singer Alexis Krauss – are thrilled to announce their sixth album, Texis, set for release on September 10, 2021 on Mom + Pop Music.  The first single from the record “Locust Laced” — a classic slice of Sleigh Bells’ signature controlled chaos that has made them one of the most exciting bands of the last decade — can be heard now.  A video for the song, directed by Miller and Kills Birds’ Nina Ljeti, can be seen now as well.  The visual features Krauss as a classic country starlet come undone, a perfect complement to the song’s one-two punch of raucous guitar lines and Krauss’s high-octane, anthemic, shout-along chorus.

Their new album, Texis, is the sound of the duo letting go of hang-ups and inhibitions and allowing themselves to embrace the sort of loud, colorful, genre-melting music only they could make. “We stopped worrying about whether or not we’re in or out of our comfort zone, or if we were being repetitive or formulaic,” says Derek Miller. After pushing themselves to sound less obviously “Sleigh Bells” on their 2017 EP Kid Kruschev, he found he’d started to reject a lot of his best creative impulses.  On Texis, the duo decided to simply push the first domino and see what would happen, chasing down whatever excitement and inspiration followed; the resulting album is pure fireworks, full of the best songs Sleigh Bells have ever written and recorded.  

One of the band’s goals in writing Texis was to infuse even the most abrasive and full-blast songs with something that made the music feel “nourishing” to them. “The thing I’m most attracted to is the juxtaposition of happy and sad, melancholy and hope,” says Miller. “A lot of this is about trying to hold on to a shred of optimism through sheer force of will, and I hope this music can give people some joyful energy and confidence.”

Sleigh Bells will be touring in Fall 2021 and Winter 2022 in support of Texis; Kills Birds will be opening on the Fall dates.  Track listing and tour dates are below.

Today, alt-rock superstar Courtney Barnett announces her third studio album Things Take Time, Take Time, set to drop November 12th on Mom+Pop Music / Marathon Artists. A sonic collage of deeply personal snapshots of Barnett at a particularly joyful time in her life, it sees her definitively and confidently taking her place in the storied lineage of highly influential and ground-breaking female singer-songwriters, and signals an exciting new phase indeed for a musician who is operating at the very peak of her powers.  The lead single is “Rae Street” released today.

Written over two years and recorded towards the end of 2020 and early 2021 between Sydney and Melbourne with producer/drummer Stella Mozgawa (Warpaint, Cate le Bon, Kurt Vile), Things Take Time, Take Time is yet another assured leap forward for Barnett; a breakthrough really, but not in the ways you might expect. This is Barnett at her most creative, relaxed and yes, happy – an exquisite look at Courtney’s private world, and consequently her most beautiful and intimate record to date, with songs dealing unabashedly with love, renewal, healing and self-discovery.

Today Beach Bunny releases the first single from their new EP Blame Game coming out on January 15 on Mom + Pop Music. The single is “Good Girls (Don’t Get Used).”

Beach Bunny’s Lil Trifilio says of the song, “As a veteran of engaging with emotionally unavailable people, I wanted to create a sassy song that calls out players by talking down to them as if they were children, showing that poor communication skills and mind games are immature. It shifts the blame to the person that was acting disrespectful, instead of myself. The song also hammers home the point that I know my worth; I’m not afraid to call out players on their stupid behavior and I’m not going to tolerate being thrown around emotionally.”

Blame Game was recorded over a week in Chicago. The EP contains 4 original songs and was produced by Joe Reinhart. The EP can be ordered at https://smarturl.it/BBBlameGame

Lili Trifilio also has a solo project called tiger lili.

Sunflower Bean released their King of Dudes EP in 2019, as a follow-up to their Twentytwo in Blue album in 2018. “Moment in the Sun” is their first new music for 2020 and it is an indie pop song with a wonderful message.

“‘Moment In The Sun’ is about finally recognizing what is important in one’s life, the people you decide to spend it with,” Sunflower Bean explains of the track. “All of these things we distract ourselves with, the neverending mountain of career climbing, the pursuit of financial success, and the hope that after all that trying you could finally be cool. All of that is meaningless in comparison to one great day, hour, or moment with someone you really love.”

The band further explains of the video: “While quarantining together upstate this summer we decided to make a music video for ‘Moment In The Sun.’ We thought the best way to visually represent the meaning of the song, while also taking inspiration from this isolating time everyone has been forced to live in, was to create two separate worlds. One world which exists totally inside a home, mostly in a lonely bedroom. The other world exists completely outside in the sun and is made up of memories of a summer love. We invited Marquis Rodriguez, who is one of Julia’s best friends since high school and also an incredibly talented actor, to co-star in the video. He was crucial in helping us tell the story of summer love and show those potent memories of tenderness coming to life. While living alone, the character Julia is portraying becomes flooded with memories and moments from the past summer, and as a result her bedroom starts to transform into the outdoor world. We built up the entire bedroom using real sod and flowers. Her memories are brought to life, just like the room.”
