The Zephyr Bones RSD Spain 7" to Be Released via Other Music & La Castanya



The Zephyr Bones
are a surfer-psych-pop band based in Barcelona, named after a skater society from the 70s. Having moved from Chile to Spain to start a band, the four-piece of Brian, Jossip, Toni and Nico have their own studio in Barcelona called Big Beat Big Waves. Their music is full of summery beach vibes and the sea is a huge inspiration to them, drawing on the never-ending sunsets, all roads leading to the ocean. They draw inspiration from US bands such DIIV, the Drums, Wild Nothing, Real Estate, Beach Fossils and Beach House, using skeletal rhythms, sparse instrumentation and shimmering synthesizers to create delightfully danceable melodies.
 
Following on from their debut four-track EP Wishes/ Fishes, released by La Castanya in July of 2014, the band return with their first international release, a double aa side 7" single released by La Castanya in conjunction with New York's Other Music. “Black Lips” could easily pass for one of the best tunes by DIIV, with a summery California-style vocal melody, while “Surrounded by Sunflowers” is reminiscent of tracks from Tame Impala's "Inner Speaker."
 
The new 7" single is available here. The Zephyr Bones will release their first full-length album later in the year.

Be a Part of Boogarins' New Video for "Tempo"



"Tempo" is about freeing yourself from the man’s clock. Boogarins are making a video for the song, and the band wants fans to send them their own short video clips, showing one of two things:

1) THE MAN'S WORLD: images and scenes of traffic, skyscrapers, development, boring work or school — the world you want to escape.
or

2) YOUR SANCTUARY: What makes time stop for you, where can you escape? Friends, family, nature, music, art — anything that makes you feel open and free.

Have fun with it, you can be as literal or as abstract as you want, and you can send as many clips as you want, but each one should be no longer than 10 seconds, shot horizontally/landscape mode on the highest quality setting you can. Upload clips here: http://bit.ly/1J7ZSCV. By uploading your film, you give Boogarins the irrevocable right to use any and all footage in the “Tempo” video, or any way they choose, in perpetuity.

Xylouris White Announce More North American Tour Dates with Kurt Vile & the Violators



Expanding upon their West and Midwest US dates in February supporting Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Xylouris White have just added a slew of shows that will find the duo performing the last two weeks of that month on the East Coast, joining Kurt Vile and the Violators on their North American tour. Featuring legendary Cretan lutenist George Xylouris and drum icon Jim White (Dirty Three, Cat Power, Will Oldham, PJ Harvey), the duo come from different parts of the world and vastly divergent musical backgrounds, but together have forged something surprising and impossible to categorize. Describing their sound as "intense, joyous and rugged," the New York Times also wrote, "Their music starts with old Cretan forms — the brisk, dance-beat sousta and the slow, sung, expressive rizitika — and spreads outward into loose, sympathetic improvisations of uncertain length, the kind of thing that has been at the center of each man’s music for a long time." Xylouris White's debut full-length, Goats, is out on Other Music Recording Co. The just announced dates are below, and you can view their full tour schedule (including their current European tour) listed here

February 17 - New Haven, CT @ College Street Music Hall - w/Kurt Vile and the Violators
February 18 - North Hampton, MA @ Pearl Street Night Club - w/Kurt Vile and the Violators
February 19 - South Burlington, VT @ Higher Ground - w/Kurt Vile and the Violators
