Lights Over Bridgeport - Michigan Song

Chicago’s Stayposi Records can exclusively announce that Lights Over Bridgeport will enter the studio on May 6th to begin work on an EP scheduled to be released this summer. The band will track drums with Mark Michalik (The Swellers, Fireworks, Into It. Over It., Castavet) in Chicago, then head to Michigan to track guitars and vocals with Swellers’ guitarist/vocalist, Nick Diener. Diener will be credited for producing this forthcoming release.

Lights Over Bridgeport is best described as “blue collar punk” similar to bands like The Swellers, Broadway Calls, and Alkaline Trio. “We don’t wear makeup or costumes on stage. What you see is what you get,” said front man John Hamlin. After demoing a track at Flashpoint Academy in Chicago, the band was discovered and quickly courted by Stayposi Records, a small indie label focused on using music to help those in need all while elevating bands to indie stardom.

“This is an incredible moment for a band like ours. Let me say this carefully, and articulate as clearly as possible: I am floating with gratitude over this opportunity,” said Hamlin.

Check out “Michigan Song” from the band and download from BandCamp for free, or name your own price.

Enemies - Executive Cut

Topshelf Records is proud to announce the US vinyl release of Embark, Embrace the new LP from Kilcoole, Ireland’s Enemies. The album will be released on August 20.

In the spirit of DIY, Embark, Embrace was recorded and visually designed by the band themselves, with engineering handled by a close friend, James Eager of The Hive Studios. The album will be the first release on the band’s own label, Heavyweight Records with Topshelf handling everything in the US.

The title Embark, Embrace comes from the bands decision to set aside careers & college degrees and focus on touring as much as possible — an opportunity that has not been available to the band until now. Enemies are just back from a three week tour of Europe and plans to tour Asia & America are already under way.

A music video for the track “Indian Summer” can be seen below.

The band recently made “Executive Cut” free to download from the Bandcamp embed below.

Foreign Tongues - Glue

Massachusetts-based atmospheric rock sextet Foreign Tongues have released their brand new EP, Glue, as a pay-what-you-want download through Youth Conspiracy Records. The five-track EP was recorded by Defeater guitarist Jay Maas (Title Fight, Transit) and is available right now. All money collected from the download will be donated to the One Fund, a new charity created by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Tom Menino to help those most affected by the recent Boston Marathon bombing. Download the EP below.

<iframe width=”300″ height=”410″ style=”position: relative; display: block; width: 300px; height: 410px;” src=”http://bandcamp.com/EmbeddedPlayer/v=2/album=4181799036/size=grande3/bgcol=FFFFFF/linkcol=eb0080/” allowtransparency=”true” frameborder=”0″><a href=”http://youthconspiracy.bandcamp.com/album/foreign-tongues-glue-ep”>Foreign Tongues – Glue EP by Youth Conspiracy Records</a></iframe>

“Once we got wind of the unfortunate events that occurred in Boston on April 15, we all discussed a way to help out our community of family and friends,” says Foreign Tongues frontman Cameron Moretti. “We decided what better way to help than release the new material of music and all give all the proceeds to One Fund in support of anyone affected by the incident. We hope everyone enjoys Glue and will support this cause so we can give back to Massachusetts.”

Depeche Mode - "Heaven"

What happens when you take the talent of She Wants Revenge frontman Justin Warfield and blend it with the lead single from Depeche Mode’s latest album, Delta Machine? One solid remix of “Heaven”,  that’s for sure.  Blending the musical elements of the 80s that made Depeche Mode popular along with a dance oriented sense of direction, Warfield was asked personally to create a remix for the band.  Warfield had this to say about the production of the song in an interview with Magnetic:

When I sat down and listened to the track the first thing that came to mind was stripping everything away and building a classic DM dance track as a bed, and at a certain point I realized that I actually had a bunch of Drumulator, Fairlight and Synclavier sounds in a library, and wouldn’t it be fun to bring back some of those classic sounds that conjure up the nostalgia and sonic bits and bobs of 80′s Depeche Mode. From that point on it was only a matter of how retro to take it without making it kitschy, so I tried to make the song a very hard but warm sounding dance track which could bang in a club in a modern way, and kept the throwback sounds strictly for the transitions and outro. The challenge was making it move, as the tempo is way below what constitutes a modern club track, but I feel like I was able to do that.

Listen to the remix below. Better yet, download it!

The Fake Boys - Pig Factory

Marking one year since its release Animal Style Records has launched a pay what you want download for The Fake Boys Pig Factory for one week only.  Grab it below while you can!

About The Fake Boys

Since 2007, The Fake Boys have cranked out an addictive and kinetic sound that’s tough to pin down stylistically yet infinitely easy to digest. With humble beginnings as a pop-punk side project for Jim “Death” Domenici – former front man for hardcore outfit Hammer Bros. – the Massachusetts-based outfit has crafted several well-received releases which capture the classic aggression and propulsive energy of forefathers such as The Descendents and Husker Du. However, The Fake Boys also embrace the timeless melodies and sing-along hooks of indie-rock icons ranging from The Fastbacks to Weezer to The Smoking Popes.

The Fake Boys’ second long-player, the fantastic and perhaps career-defining Pig Factory, is the trio’s first with West Coast-based Animal Style Records, whose expanding punk-powerhouse roster includes Mixtapes, Transit and Hold Tight. The album was recorded and produced by Jay Maas (Have Heart, Title Fight, Polar Bear Club) at Getaway Recording in Wakefield, MA.

Much like the band’s back catalog, Pig Factory embraces a familiar fuzzed-out earnestness that evokes major ‘90s indie nostalgia. The technical and discordant guitars – reminiscent of early Cursive or Dear You-era Jawbreaker – set a perfect backdrop for Domenici’s vocals, which exude both gloss and grit: two qualities that don’t often exist in the same space.

While The Fake Boys can project angst and anger with dynamic, buzz-saw guitars and songs that focus on hard-hitting topics, it’s the trio’s sense of humor and vulnerability that makes its music undeniably relatable. Domenici’s vocal style lends a feeling of true conviction that isn’t lost amongst the band’s ferocity. Paired with clever lyrics and fist-pumping choruses, he offers a touch of whimsy that helps ground jagged arrangements – a welcomed nuance akin to Pinkerton-era Weezer.

With Pig Factory, The Fake Boys may have found the perfect middle ground between the nostalgia and warmth of ’90s indie and power-pop and the urgency and tension of modern punk, and the outfit shows no signs of slowing down any time soon. Of course, after averaging virtually one new release per year, that shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone. Then again, who’s complaining? We’ll take more infectious, rip-roaring tunes from The Fake Boys any time.

Hey Champ - Cliché

I first heard of Hey Champ back in 2009 when I saw them live at Lollapalooza and camping out at the stage Depeche Mode would later perform on that night.  From what I remember, they were the first band to take the stage that day, but what I do know is that they were impressive live.  “Cold Dust Girl” struck a very positive chord for me when it terms of catchy and perfectly produced pop rock. Good stuff to say the least.

Until recently, I had forgotten about the band over the years and decided to see if they were still around and still making great music. Lo and behold, I found a new song from them posted about a month ago called “Cliché”.  It’s definitely a different sound from what I heard in 2009, but a step in the right direction.  Hey Champ continues to produce catchy and upbeat music worth dancing to.  This one in particular reminds me of something Tesla Boy would produce stylistically.

About Hey Champ

Hey Champ’s roots can be traced outside of Chicago in nearby Rockford, where band members Saam Hagshenas (Vocals, Guitar) and Jonathan Marks (Vocals & Drums) discovered their love of music at a young age. After Saam’s graduation from law school, the two reunite in Chicago under the Hey Champ moniker. Needing some additional help on the keys, Jonathan calls up his old Princeton chum Pete. The two met as outsiders at one of those tea and crumpet parties where everyone wears blazers and laughs through clenched teeth The band incorporates influences from disco, house and indie rock, while combining the raw energy of Cheap Trick and the synth-heavy productions of Giorgio Moroder and Trevor Horn.

The band kicked off 2011 by jumping right into the studio with MPG Breakthrough Producer of The Year 2011, Eliot James. With production credits including Two Door Cinema Club’s Tourist History, Bloc Party’s Silent Alarm, and the Kaiser Cheif’s Off With Their Heads, James’ previous efforts made him the perfect choice.
