Monika Premieres "Stripping" Off Forthcoming 'Secret in the Dark' LP

On the heels of two platinum Greek releases, headlining major festivals and gracing the covers of music and fashion magazines in her homeland, Monika is thrilled to announce her third studio album, Secret in the Dark, available October 2 worldwide via Other Music Recording Co. Recorded at the Daptone-renowned Dunham Sounds Studios (Sharon Jones, Charles Bradley, Dan Auerbach) and produced by Dap-Kings & Menahan Street Band founding member Homer Steinweiss, the album breathes generational genre-spanning influences. A distinctly New York album with a breezy Mediterranean heart, Secret in the Dark is a cunningly crafted record of ‘80s art pop infused with organic leftfield disco tones. The Fader just premiered "Stripping," one of the record's darker ethereal soundscapes, with Monika's syncopated operatic vocals slicing into shimmering synths and driving bass. 

Amassing a dream-team of musicians, Homer Steinweiss, Thomas Brenneck, Nick Movshon, Victor Axelrod, Leon Michels, and others from the Brooklyn scene join Monika on Secret in the Dark. Fans will have a special early chance to experience the funk-pop extravaganza live at Brooklyn’s Union Pool on July 9. Be sure to catch Monika live and stay tuned for more news coming soon!

Invisible Familiars' "New Mutation Boogie" Video Premiere

Invisible Familiars have premiered a video for "New Mutation Boogie" today via BlackBook, created by Chris Tucci, in advance of their upcoming northeast tour supporting Cibo Matto (tour dates listed below the video). BlackBook writes:

"Experimental indie band Invisible Familiars have created a sound completely unlike anything we’ve ever heard, or at least liked. Their track “New Mutation Boogie” incorporates mechanical tinkerings, as if recorded in a pulsing factory...the video fits the song’s title and essence perfectly. Commencing with a palpitating heart, we see animated figures morph into one another, eerily yet effortlessly, manifesting swaying trees, a scorching sun, a dancing animal kingdom, and a range of hypnotic, geographical shapes, mostly colored with neon lights."

"New Mutation Boogie" is from Invisible Familiars' debut full-length, Disturbing Wildlife, out now via Other Music Recording Co. and available on CD, LP and Download here

June 25 - Hamden, CT @ Ballroom at Outer Space 
w/ Cibo Matto
June 26 - Burlington, VT @ Higher Ground w/ Cibo Matto
June 27 - North Adams, MA @ The Mohawk (Solid Sound After Party)

Tall Tales and the Silver Lining Video Premiere

With their new album, Tightropes, just released on Other Music Recording Co., California's Tall Tales and the Silver Lining has premiered their video for "Something to Believe In" via Flood Magazine. Writer Christian Koons notes: "The video follows frontman Trevor Beld Jimenez and company as they drive their van around northeast LA playing shows, eating tacos, and dancing. A lot. But it’s hard to blame them—the sun-soaked melody of “Something To Believe In” is pretty undeniable."

Tall Tales and the Silver Lining's Tightropes is available here as CD, LP and Download.
