"LOVE Chance"

This is the first in a series of three EP's 23-year-old, Yonkers native, Chance, intends to release in 2011 called the "LOVE Trilogy". While the records are far from love songs, they focus on being young and having a passion for the fast life (Living Our Vision Everyday). Chance describes this addition as the "LIGHT side of the trilogy" and will follow it up with "The LOVE Drug", a project focusing on the darker side of passion, obsession and addiction, and "Letters From A LOVEr", a more reflective and introspective look at the consequences of our actions. Producer Vinny Buck$ uses a unique blend of funky-soul samples and original production to create the sonic backdrop for this love-fest.

New Track "Last Name London" Premieres on XXLMag.com

London doesn't see musical boundaries, and in Timez Are Weird These Days, he's created an equally wide-open album with genre bending sound and a magnetic brand of storytelling. Recorded over the last year in Stockholm, NYC and Los Angeles, London worked with a number of different producers to achieve his sound including Ariel Rechstshaid (Foreign Born, MURS, Glasser), Jokke of The Teddybears, Dave Sitek of TV on the Radio and John Hill (Santigold), who is responsible for "Last Name London."

You'll Sleep When I'm Dead by Thecloudimundersleep

You'll Sleep When I'm Dead is the latest EP from The Cloud I'm Under. Released right on the heels of Radio Ending, It is partly rooted in nostalgia for my former self as seen through the rose colored glasses of a selective memory. The other part is a reflection on the inevitability of death and the importance of being bold and fearless. umm... and It's also a collection of songs

Rooftop opens our 15th annual festival with a flash of creativity, a splatter of inspiration, and short epic stories that could save your life.

A simple line drawing fleetingly becomes a recognizable face, then morphs into something disturbing. An obliterating splatter of paint describes the history of the universe. A prophesy of doom comes blissfully alive. The forces of creation and destruction battle epically within and around us at all times, at atomic, 8-bit and astronomical levels. David O’Reilly’s masterful fragmented universe The External World reminds us “Remember this is merely a cartoon. None of this is real. . . . There is only a silent emptiness spreading infinitely in all directions.” But at this, the start of Rooftop’s 15th year of existence, we begin with short films that celebrate creativity as a necessary means to survival. The piano players know, “She can’t kill me while I’m playing.”

The Films:

LOVE & THEFT (Andreas Hykade | Germany | 7 min.)
The driving pulse of transformation reveals moments of terror and beauty amidst images familiar and domestic.

OOPS (Chris Beckman | Springfield, MO | 10 min.)
Conjuring creative connections out of mundane happenstance, Oops—composed entirely of appropriated YouTube videos—lies somewhere between a home-video mixtape and a postmodern travelogue.

THE EXTERNAL WORLD (David O'Reilly | Ireland | 15 min.)
A boy learns to play the piano.

THE PIANO TUNER (Olivier Treiner | France | 13 min.)
Adrien is a young piano prodigy. He now works as a piano tuner. He pretends to be blind in order to infiltrate his clients' intimacy. Since he sees things he should not, Adrien ends up witnessing a murder.

HEARTPOCALYPSE (Matthew Silver | Brooklyn, NY | 7 min.)
In a dynamic bit of spontaneous street art, a crazed doomsayer ranting underneath a Brooklyn subway track brings to life his worst nightmares—and the crowd loves it.

BIG BANG BIG BOOM (Blu | Italy | 10 min.)
This ingenious animation uses the city as its canvas in a short unscientific story about evolution and its possible consequences.

LEDO AND IX BATTLE EPICALLY (Emily Carmichael | Brooklyn, NY | 4 min.)
The third in a series of films about two adventurers in an old-school fantasy video game. Ledo, the tiny 8-bit heroine, has been obsessively upgrading her weapons and tirelessly honing her attacks, all in preparation for great battles that have never materialized. Supported by the Rooftop Filmmakers' Fund.

YEARBOOK (Carter Smith | New York, NY | 10 min.)
The yearbook photo never tells the whole story in this creepy portrait of small town high school sexuality from the award-winning creator of Bugcrush.

PIONEER (David Lowery | Dallas, TX | 15 min.)
A father (Will Oldham) tells his little boy the most epic bedtime story ever.

New Album RABBITS ON THE RUN Out On June 21st, 2011

Carlton To Perform Two Sold Out Nights At Joe’s Pub New York City In June

(New York, NY) – Today singer-songwriter Vanessa Carlton releases her first single, “Carousel,” from her much-anticipated forthcoming album Rabbits on the Run (Razor & Tie). The song is now available on all digital service providers – purchase from iTunes HERE. Share this news on Facebook and unlock a free stream of “Carousel” as well, visit vanessacarlton.com. Rabbits on the Run is set for release this Summer on June 21st and fans can pre-order the album now at Amazon.com HERE. Carlton will perform a pair of sold out shows at the New York City intimate venue, Joe’s Pub, on June 26th and 27th and full tour will be announced soon. Vanessa Carlton also recently completed a video with Jake Davis (Flyleaf, My Chemical Romance) for “Carousel” and the video will be made available shortly.

Vanessa Carlton's fourth studio album, Rabbits on the Run, was produced by Steve Osborne (U2, B-52’s, KT Tunstall) and was recorded in the UK at Peter Gabriel’s world-renowned Real World Studios. The album returns to a different era of music-making: ten intimate, evocative songs, recorded directly to tape with her close-knit team of collaborators including Steve Osborne, Patrick Hallahan of My Morning Jacket, and Ari Ingber of The Upwelling (all playing on the album). Part inspired by two books: Richard Adams' Watership Down and Stephen Hawking's A Brief History of Time, Rabbits on the Run is by far the most honest and uncompromised album she has recorded to date, revealing a striking departure and an exciting snapshot in the evolution of this exquisite storyteller and inventive musician. Songs include the 70's-sun-drenched "Dear California," the lush "Carousel" and the bold "I Don't Want to Be a Bride."

Three Grammy nominations, three studio albums, platinum sales and a collection of hit songs are some notable results of a fruitful career thus far for Vanessa Carlton. She first exploded onto the scene in 2002 with her stunning debut Be Not Nobody, and world-wide hit single “A Thousand Miles.” Vanessa Carlton first began playing the piano as a toddler, continuing on an artistic road with her attendance at the School of American Ballet in New York, a path she would eventually abandon in favor of songwriting. While studying at Columbia University in New York City, Carlton was signed to Interscope Records and has since released three albums featuring songs such as “A Thousand Miles,” “White Houses,” and “Nolita Fairytale.” Carlton’s music has resonated with audiences of all ages world-wide and she continues to inspire an increasingly loyal fan base. Vanessa Carlton is managed by Career Artist Management (CAM).

"Higgs’ voice is consistently striking and the arrangements are vivid and playful, recalling the wintry shimmer of Beach House one moment and waltz-y folk like Jolie Holland the next. (Or even, at least in that seconds-long break that chirps out of “Asleep All Winter,” a sedated Shugo Tokumaru.)" Coke Machine Glow

“...seemingly effortless hooks. We can only hope Higgs' full-length puts as many new spins on the traditional female singer/songwriter character class as this excellent EP". Chartattack

“As an introduction to the coming new album, Little Voice does a fantastic job of teasing and building anticipation. I was starting to think that 2011 would be a slow going year for new music, but Rebekah Higgs looks set to be a big voice in the coming months.” Quick Before It Melts

“Little Voice is a marvellous EP that raises the bar high, but with the right company, Higgs's sophomore LP should have no trouble Fosbury Flop-ing over it.” Exclaim!

“I've long loved Higgs' voice, a most powerful and poignant instrument. This, a teaser for a forthcoming full-length, doesn't disappoint.” Hour

“Higgs’ four-song teaser is both enticing and brutally short. But she manages to cram plenty of variety into Little Voice’s 12 minutes of space: the eponymous opener is sweetly playful, while the rousing “Asleep All Winter” has a danceable synth and stirring lyrics that are, if not perfectly timed for the cold, at least a cozy reminder of the new year—and with it, Higgs’ upcoming full-length release.” eye weekly

New York, NY – Through their highly melodic Americanized Brit Rock flair - reminiscent of bands like Muse, Keane, and Brand New - Sounds Under Radio has forged an audience and a sound uniquely their own and with their sophomore release, Where My Communist Heart Meets My Capitalist Mind, they continue to build upon their musical truths that they established with their first album Cinematica (2008). If you can’t wait for the May 3rd release date of their forthcoming album then you can stream it in its entirety on Much Music’s First Listen. Click here.

Where My Communist Heart Meets My Capitalist Mind is an album that investigates a marriage of opposites and the collision of conflicting forces. In other words, the everlasting battle of HEAD versus HEART.
