With tape on their guitars and a penchant for persistent dancing, The Holidays brought their unstoppable grooves to Austin in full force all the way from their native Australia. The band injected a fresh energy into their tropical tunes, a welcome vacation from the more regular bands in the genre of escapist pop. The band played a few off their debut album Post Paradise, although it certainly didnt seem like they were anywhere past their perfect climate of songwriting, enthusiasm, and frenzied fun. Take a break from boredom with The Holidays



A new video of Metronomy has just gone up on Noisey.com. In this video meet the Mercury Prize nominated band from Devon. Metronomy just put out one of the best records of the year. Departing from the arty electro of their first recordings, the English Riviera is an economical collection of funked-out basslines and nostalgic pop gems. Still led by Joseph Mount, the band is well into its second decade and quickly becoming a pop institution.

Melbourne, Australia's Indie-Alternative quartet The Dead Leaves

are currently offering the track "Harm", from their upcoming album
"Cities On The Sea", as a free download. Harm lives creatively
smewhere between The National and Joy Division, and showcases
lead singer Matt Joe Gow's versatility as he lifts from an impressively
melodic deeper register in the verses to a high-soaring pitch during
the track's infectious refrain.
You can currently download "Harm" from the band's facebook page, where
you'll also have the chance to check out the recently announced artwork
for "Cities On The Sea". In the meantime, you can also download the
band's reinvention of "This Must Be The Place" by The Talking Heads
for free here.
The Dead Leaves, originally formed as Matt Joe Gow's solo

project in 2009, have evolved into one of the premiere bands in
Australia. With the release of "Cities On The Sea" (due out this
September on Liberation Music), the band will undoubtedly take
their national success to a more global level. Make sure to get in
on the band now before the rest of the world inevitably does.

NORTH ANDOVER, Mass. (July 13, 2011) - Today, Converse Inc. announced the official opening of Converse Rubber Tracks, a new state-of-the-art recording studio in Brooklyn, NY. Converse Rubber Tracks will provide dedicated artists of all genres the opportunity to record their original music in a high quality studio alongside a team of experienced engineers at no cost. Converse Rubber Tracks is providing a new platform for musicians by helping them overcome one of the biggest hurdles in their career -- affording studio time.

"We're incredibly thrilled to announce the official opening of Converse Rubber Tracks," said Geoff Cottrill, Chief Marketing Officer, Converse. "One of our goals as a brand is to give back and help inspire a new generation of musicians. By opening Converse Rubber Tracks, it's a way for us to say thank you to musicians all over who have helped us become the brand we are and to provide a place for new artists to have access to
resources they may not be able to afford. This is our way to invest in the future of music
and we couldn't be more excited about it."

Converse will support the local New York music scene with the first round of emerging bands set to record at Converse Rubber Tracks. Kicking off today, five emerging New York area bands including the funk/R&B group Aabaraki (Brooklyn, NY), psychedelic rock group Majuscules (Brooklyn, NY), hip/hop funk group G.I.C & Funk Face (Brooklyn, NY), R&B pop artist Andre Henry (New York, NY) and the pop/punk band Super Rocket Car (New Brunswick, NJ) will begin recording at the space. They will work alongside a team of experienced and professional engineers to lay down original music that the artists themselves will retain all rights for.

"Knowing how hard it is to make a living as a musician and the amount of money it takes to get into a studio of that caliber, it's unbelievably generous for Converse to provide it for free," said Ra Ra Riot indie rock band member and Brooklyn resident Rebecca Zeller. "Coupled with the fact that artists retain all rights to their music is a testament to Converse."

Every artist entering the studio will be afforded the unique opportunity to record their original music using state of the art equipment and instruments supplied solely by Guitar Center, the world's largest musical instrument retailer. As an exclusive, Guitar Center has provided Converse Rubber Tracks with the Ocean Way HR2 large-format monitor system, making the studio the only one in all of New York City to offer the use of the state-of-the-art system designed by multi-GRAMMY award winning producer/engineer Allen Sides. In addition, high-quality guitars and amps by Fender, Gibson, Ernie Ball, BlackStar, Marshall and Schecter among others will also be available for all musicians to use. For more information about Guitar Center visit www.guitarcenter.com.

This summer, in addition to giving musicians the chance to record in a state-of-the-art environment, Converse Rubber Tracks will also host the GRAMMY Foundation®'s annual GRAMMY Camp®. Held for the past six years in Los Angeles, the program is expanding to the East Coast to reach a broader range of students. This summer, GRAMMY Camps are being held in Los Angeles from July 9 -18 and Brooklyn from August 2 - 8 at Converse Rubber Tracks. During this week, students will get to experience an in-depth look at the entire creative process from the first spark of original material through the promotion of a finished product, and will culminate in a launch party at a theater in Times Square.

Converse Rubber Tracks will also give bands the means to expose their music to a much larger audience through compelling content captured at the studio, including exclusive in-studio video testimonials, track- of-the-week features, behind-the-scenes footage, and unique rehearsal session clips. Converse's Rubber Tracks will be a catalyst for creativity and will provide a window to see into an artist's experience, again all at www.converse.com/rubbertracks.

Musicians can visit www.converse.com/rubbertracks to receive more information about Converse Rubber Tracks studio and details on the registration process

Black Fabio - Black Fabio ft. J. Moore by Rad Summer
As Oreo Jones and Action Jackson ready their mixtape "Black Fabio" to debut Thursday, the duo release the the lead single also titled "Black Fabio":

When Oreo Jones debuted his Halloween costume last year Black Fabio, no one expected it to spawn a concept mixtape that keeps you dancing and laughing front to back. Nine months later and with the help of Action Jackson, that is exactly what's been created. Just as Fabio was never constrained by wearing a shirt, OJ and Jackson chose not to be encumbered by genre and drew from anything including rap to post-punk to moombahton. The song "Black Fabio" is an original production from Action that mixes strong drums and a funky bass-guitar-line with Oreo's lyrical description of the titular character. J. Moore makes an appearance near the end instructing listeners on how to keep their pimp hand strong. The complete "Black Fabio" mixtape is set to debut Thursday, July 28th!

Who is Oreo Jones? In the spring of 2010, Oreo Jones took the hip-hop and indie music scenes of Indianapolis by storm with the release of his Delicious EP featuring the break-out single "Good Times". Since that time he has steadily built his fan base with a number of strong collaborations and features like on his "Oreo Jones & Friends" EP. Oreo is also cooking up a new season of his cooking show Let's Do Lunch with guests DJ Limelight, Gunner of X103, Rob and Dave of the Melody Inn, and Wayne of Barfly just to name a few. Oreo is currently completing his first full length album Super Model Death Dive that should be out sometime soon. Make sure to checkout the lead single "Cordon Bleu's" video! If you don't know who Oreo Jones is, this summer is a perfect time to get familiar!

Indianapolis born and raised, Action Jackson has quickly established himself as one of the premier up and coming DJs in the country. Specializing in genre bending mixes that span multiple styles of music, he is equally comfortable spinning hip-hop, dance music, old school classics, reggae, rock, and everything in between. His productions are diverse as well, having remixed artists such as Passion Pit, Hall and Oates, and Smokey Robinson. In short, there’s not a crowd or party that he can’t rock. In 2007, he partnered with Flufftronix to form Rad Summer, a promotion and booking company based in Bloomington, IN. Rad Summer has now expanded Philadelphia, PA and Indianapolis, IN along with the inclusion of a record label.

Roc Marciano - 'Jaws' (Prod. by Oh No) by DeconRecords

METRIC is pleased to announce the release of their remix album Fantasies Flashbacks, comprised entirely of fan-created remixes of songs from the band's critically and commercially acclaimed 2009 album Fantasies.

Late last year, METRIC elected to work with Indaba Music when the online musician community offered to provide a platform to launch an innovative crowdsourced remix contest which ultimately yielded thousands of submissions.

Overwhelmed by the quantity and quality of the remixes, in an effort to honor their fans' abundant talents and creativity, METRIC compiled a list of their personal favorites and decided to release them as part of this Fantasies Flashbacks deluxe, limited-edition vinyl box set, with all proceeds to be donated to the Center for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH).

Slated for release on October 11th, 2011, the package will contain:

· 10 x 7" vinyl singles, each containing an original song from Fantasies and the associated winning remix from the Indaba Music contest;

· A PlayButton digital music player pre-loaded with (the same) 10 winning remixes (one of the first new notable commercial releases available on PlayButton);

· A digital download code redeemable for all music from the 7" singles (20 tracks including the original studio album version of Fantasies), plus an additional 11 of the band's favorite remixes. In total this is 31 songs or over 80 minutes of music;

· Two 6" x 6", two-sided color inserts featuring fan-created artwork/imagery, track listing, credits and information about the genesis of the remix album and the charitable tie-in with CAMH;

· A limited edition 18" x 24" glossy METRIC poster;

· A custom box housing everything listed above.

Fans may also pre-order the limited edition deluxe physical package effectively immediately, while supplies last from METRIC's online store. By purchasing directly from Metric, fans will receive a 15% discount from the suggested retail list price plus 3 exclusive bonus tracks not available on the retail version of the album.

In keeping with METRIC's drive to innovate and try new things, combined with a desire to help support music retail stores across the country, as of July 20th, to promote the upcoming release and help drive traffic to record stores, METRIC will test a new technology which will allow fans worldwide to "check-in" to 3 participating independent record store locations through Facebook Places using the new Hear Now mobile app (available at http://m.hearnow.me) , thus instantly unlocking a free unreleased download from the upcoming Fantasies Flashbacks album.

METRIC thanks Waterloo Records in Austin, TX, and the two Sonic Boom locations in Seattle, WA who have agreed to work with METRIC to test this new technology. These stores will be given 100 free, limited-edition METRIC PlayButtons, pre-loaded with all ten of the never-before-released winning Indaba remixes, all to be given out free of charge, on a first come first serve basis to anyone who comes in person to one of their stores with a proof of "check-in" on hand.

The Hear Now app is a new location-aware mobile web app powered by Fan Groove and Sonic Living which enables users in major cities across the world to discover music events and related promotions going on around them. The beta version can be used in any HTML5 mobile web browser or saved to the iPhone homescreen to function as an app.


Last week, 1320 Records announced the addition of Mochipet to their growing list of artists. He is set to release "Chicxulub" next month but 1320 decided to release a free Mochipet compilation titled "Hello My Name is Mochipet". It is available for download now on 1320 Records website to keep you company until "Chicxulub" is out!

Madina Lake's first single "Hey Superstar" is available online for purchase HERE. Fans can also listen to a full stream of the song at Altpress.com HERE. Madina Lake's highly anticipated new studio album World War III is set for release on September 13th and the band will kick off a North American tour in support (early tour dates below). Madina Lake just completed a series of dates on the Vans Warped Tour as well as the U.K.'s Download Festival at Donington Park this past June. "Hey Superstar" will impact Alternative Radio on August 8th.

Madina Lake lead singer Nathan Leone explains the song, "It feels like everything is becoming completely plastic and contrived lately. From cosmetic adjustments like Botox to technological 'fixes' like Photoshop, Auto-Tune, etc., there's this implication that to be accepted you have to be anything but yourself. That's way too much pressure. I think most people are pretty kickass just as they are, and removing that pressure would probably lead to a much happier life. 'Hey Superstar' is a sentiment to the 'perfect' people that the rest of us are just fine, thanks."

For Madina Lake, World War III closes one chapter and opens another. The Chicago quartet of twin brothers Nathan (Vocals) and Matthew Leone (Bass, Vocals), Mateo Camargo (Guitar, Programming), and Dan Torelli (Drums) has endured more in the past two years than most artists will experience over the course of an entirecareer. Last June, Madina Lake bassist Matthew Leone was hospitalized after intervening in a domestic violence incident in Chicago involving a man beating his wife. In critical condition, Leone's injuries included a fractured skull, broken jaw and a swollen brain as doctors removed one-third of his skull while waiting for the swelling in his brain to go down. Local musicians and supporters pulled together to raise money for Matthew's hospital bills with The Smashing Pumpkins playing a benefit show in Chicago raising over $80,000. A lot of uncertainty followed, with doubts that Madina Lake would ever play together again. Fortunately, Matthew's recovery in the last year has been nothing short miraculous leading to this next chapter in the band's history, which brings us to the band's most exciting album yet, World War III.

Madina Lake's new album will be the third and final installment of their concept trilogy, World War III which continues the Leone brothers' tales of a metaphorical universe. Pouring their life experiences into their songs, Madina Lake set out to release three albums which would congruently tell the story of Madina Lake, a small town of their own creation, which would also serve as the canvas for a much larger message. The first chapter, 2007's From Them, Through Us, to You (Roadrunner Records), introduced the town set in the 1950's and the story is focused on the town socialite(Adalia), who goes missing, and the reaction the town's inhabitants have - a commentary on society's obsession with celebrity and materialism. The second chapter, 2009's Attics to Eden (Roadrunner Records), continued the search for the missing socialite while introducing other characters to the world outside Madina Lake as well as exploring Adalia's journey. The album dove into the psychological aspects of the society and what truly separates and degrades humanity when elements of greed, lying, cheating, violence, power struggles and insecurity are displayed. In the final chapter, World War III, concludes with the discovery of Adalia and an epic battle of good and evil that mirrors human internal struggles with self. The album was produced by Mateo Camargo and Madina Lake except the song "Imagineer" which was produced and written by Billy Corgan (Smashing Pumpkins) and Madina Lake.

Over the years, Madina Lake has toured with Linkin Park, My Chemical Romance, Taking Back Sunday, Paramore and Gym Class Heroes, in addition to taking part on several runs of the Vans Warped Tour. Madina Lake is Nathan Leone (Vocals), Matthew Leone (Bass, Vocals), Mateo Camargo (Guitars, Programming), and Daniel Torelli (Drums).

At this year’s Comic-Con in San Diego, the band will play their first-ever show in the United States the day before the screening of the movie that inspired the soundtrack. The band will perform at The Pacific Theatre on Friday, July 22nd immediately following an advance screening of Griff the Invisible The movie debuts in theatres across the country on August 19th.

Kids at Risk will then continue their tour playing two shows in West Hollywood and two shows in New York City before returning home. The band received attention back home as the Australian Council for the Arts issued them a grant enabling Kids At Risk to travel to the United States and for this trip to become a reality. From being features in Australia’s Rolling Stone twice to airplay on radio and TV stations throughout Australia, Kids At Risk have gained a sizeable following in their native country.

For the Griff the Invisible soundtrack, the trio kept their indie-pop sound but also added diverse orchestral sounds for the action packed moments and smooth ambient sounds for the intimate moments that depict a vibe fit for a superhero film. Music Inspired by the Film Griff the Invisible shows how the songwriting talent and vast musical knowledge Kids at Risk have can produce a soundtrack that is unique yet enjoyable to a vast array of music fans.

“The band put their case forward for being an eclectic juggernaut that could, and should go places. Highly

Momentum (Hollidayrain Remix) by Kenton Dunson
~
If Progressive House isn't your style, Kenton recently released a song titled "NFL Flow" to his supporters last Friday in celebration of his album Creative Destruction 2 reaching over 30,000 downloads as well as in hopes that the NFL lockout comes to a close next week. He pulled a beat out from his archives that he made back in college using the NFL on Fox theme as a sample and ripped a verse over it.




- If you don't know, I'm from Halifax, NS (Canada) and Shady is from Oakland, California. We're about 6000km apart and haven't met yet, but I'm proud to say that Distorted has been one of the most fun, honest things I've ever worked on.

We put a lot into this album, so I hope you can get something out of it. Also, to avoid confusion, because it happens, if you want to download and don't like it enough to pay just click 'buy' and put in '0' and you'll get the free download. We want as many people as possible to be able to listen and enjoy - so if you do, pass it on to a friend.

Manika is currently in the studio collaborating with A-list songwriters/producers for her full-length debut, including Tearce and Francci, and such heavy hitters as Qura Rankin and Evan Bogart (Beyonce, Rihanna, Leona Lewis, Natasha Bedingfield, Jennifer Lopez).

Manika (pronounced Ma-NEE-ka), whose mixed heritage includes Filipino, Japanese, Chinese, Malaysian and Spanish, is winner of the Outstanding Performance Award three years in a row at the National Performing Arts Festival in New York. At age 15, she wrote and published The Exciting Adventures of Boo, a fictional children's book, donating proceeds for the first 750 copies to the Nevada SPCA animal shelter.

Never Shout Never return with a new album, Time Travel, September 20th. The band, led by Singer/Songwriter/Guitar Player Christofer Drew, revealed the album artwork to fans on AltPress.com today. The album teaser video also contains a short clip of the

No longer just Christofer Drew's solo moniker, Never Shout Never is now a full band made up of Chris's longtime Joplin, MO friends and cohorts. Permanently joining Chris both in the studio and on the road are Caleb Denison (Guitar/Drums/Percussion), Taylor MacFee (Bass) and Hayden Kaiser (Percussion). Time Travel is their first recorded effort as a unit. The band holed up at Studio 2100 just outside their hometown in Springfield, MO and produced the entire record themselves, a big change from the last record, Harmony, which was a big budget production by legendary sound doctor Butch Vig. With Time Travel, the band's sound has progressed and matured, resulting in Never Shout Never's most complete album to date.

Christofer Drew and Never Shout Never continue to help raise money for their hometown of Joplin, MO which was devastated by tornados in late May. Christofer put together a campaign with the United Way in hopes to raise 1 Million dollars for Joplin. Text "JOMO" to 50555 to donate $10 to the immediate and long-term relief of Joplin, MO and watch the video of the destruction Chris put together himself, which also contains a clip of "Time Travel."

Never Shout Never will be recording a special MTV.com "Live In NYC" performance at The Studio at Webster Hall on August 4th, a show that sold out in the first five minutes. Stay tuned for a full US and European headlining tour announcement coming first week of August.

Never Shout Never's recently recorded Daytrotter session is the #1 most downloaded/listened to on the site, ahead of The Head And The Heart, Black Lips and The Books. Last week, Peta2 crowned Christofer Drew as 2011's Sexiest Vegetarian, where he joins a hot group of former winners including Olivia Wilde, Gabe Saporta of Cobra Starship, Alyssa Milano and Natalie Portman.



Amazing song and video


Toddla T - 'Watch Me Dance' (Martelo Album Minimix) by toddla_t

new Toddla T video is being premiered with VEVO today. Featuring an achingly cool Roots Manuva, the video is every bit as bold and dynamic as the single; the title track from Toddla's forthcoming album 'Watch Me Dance'.

The track does not simply feature Roots Manuva on vocals but is more a collaboration between the two producers. In fact, it was Rodney's original demo that inspired Toddla to mould it into this very version for his album, naturally with Rodney’s stamp of approval.

Continuing work on the demo resulted in Rodney's own version which will also appear as track two on the single package along with a wealth of remixes including one from Sebastian and the legend that is Andrew Weatherall. The Roots Manuva version will also feature on his fifth studio album, 4everevolution later in the year.
This unique release displays the different interpretations borne from the same demo and displays the mutual appreciation between these two highly respected and innovative UK artists.

The Watch Me Dance EP will be released 1 August 2011 - http://itunes.apple.com/US/preorder/watch-me-dance-ep/id448318350

"8 out of 10." - Spin

"Despite the presence of several high-profile guest rappers and producers, including Travis Barker, the Neptunes, Ghostface, Bun B, Mayer Hawthorne and Asher Roth, "Bicycles" remains unmistakably a Cool Kids album, full of Inglish's uncluttered beats and rhymes that burst at the seams with clever pop-culture references way beyond the usual hip-hop lexicon." - Metromix

"One of the best rap albums in recent memory. The long wait was more than worth it, and these Kids are back and better than ever." - The Owl Mag

Shout outs 2 Djcassidy!

Last fall, tha Doc dropped his debut IMPOSE EP on iQ Entertainment and garnered a good buzz for his creativity. Now he's making his return with the 6 tracks that compose his Evolution EP. Evolution is a great selection of interesting and soulful dubstep, drum-n-bass, and downtempo songs from the young producer. Evolution proves to be an appropriate name for his second release as it shows tremendous artistic growth in the composition of each track.
