Rough Trade-signed Parquet Courts' fifth album Wide Awake! - produced by Danger Mouse - is a ground-breaking work, an album about independence and individuality but also about collectivity and communitarianism. The songs, written by Andrew Savage and Austin Brown but elevated to even greater heights by the dynamic rhythmic propulsion of Max Savage (drums) and Sean Yeaton (bass), are filled with their traditional punk rock passion, as well as a lyrical tenderness. The record reflects a burgeoning confidence in the band's exploration of new ideas in a hi-fi context. In celebration of Wide Awake! the band return to the UK in November 2018 for their biggest ever headline shows yet.
Snail Mail, the moniker of 18-year-old Lindsey Jordan, will release its full-length debut in 2018, following the 2016 release of its introductory EP, Habit. The Baltimore singer, songwriter, and guitar prodigy is the latest addition to the renowned Matador Records roster, having bowled them over with her powerhouse vocals, preternaturally wise lyrics, and mind-bogglingly technical compositions.
Snail Mail’s Habit EP was quickly noticed by both national press outlets and touring bands alike, landing Jordan the kind of attention that most of Mary Timony’s guitar students (yes, for real, she’s been classically trained for over thirteen years AND studied under fellow Matador guitar wiz Timony, while also juggling hockey practice) can only dream of -- a New York Times Sunday Arts cover, a Pitchfork Rising feature, a FADER Gen F feature, a spotlight in V Magazine, and tours with Girlpool, Priests, and Waxahatchee.
