Upcoming Releases (Fuck Yeah!)

So I really enjoyed 2009 as a year for music, a lot of people didn’t but hey that’s just me. However the great releases do not stop there, with some seriously awesome bands setting to release some seriously awesome music this year three of which i’ll talk about right here.

Portugal. The Man – American Ghetto

So these lads never ever stop, hell their last release The Satanic Satanist was only just released last July, and there is talk of more EP’s and LP’s in the works! This one is said to be a mix between their earlier work “Waiter: You Vultures!”, “It’s Complicated Being a Wizard” and “The Satanic Satanist” which means we are in for some serious electronic, indie funk with this one I think 🙂

Fang Island – Fang Island

This record is officially being released today via Sargent House records, and let me tell you form the first track Daisy this album will make you grin from ear to ear – full of uplifting positivity this seriously technical math-rock-cum-sunflower will brighten your day with three harmonizing guitars, gang vocals, heavy drums and smothering bass.

Minus the Bear – OMNI

There is no artwork for this yet, however a press release and date has been set for early May so check this out!


Seattle-based quintet Minus the Bear are very excited to announce the release of their new album, OMNI, set for a May 4th release on Dangerbird Records. Produced by Grammy Award winning producer Joe Chiccarelli (The White Stripes, My Morning Jacket), OMNI showcases the quintet’s remarkable gift to craft visionary and gripping compositions, and with the assistance of Chiccarelli, revealing new layers in their songwriting as they pursue the next level in their inimitable musical style. With the exploration of erotic themes and fascinating tales of human sexual relationships, OMNI is a riveting new album of rich soundscapes illustrated by Minus The Bear’s trademark precision and tremendous growth as artistic lyricists and songwriters. Beginning April 21st, Minus the Bear will embark on a 6-week North American tour premiering these new tracks. Dates to be announced shortly. OMNI marks the first release for the band on Dangerbird Records.

With deep bass lines, mesmerizing syncopated guitar riffs, provocative lyrics and stimulating keyboards, OMNI explodes with a bursting energy and unpredictable experimentation. From lead-off single, MY TIME, which explores the band’s widescreen synth rock, to the punch of dueling guitars and keyboards on THE THIEF, from the intense psychedelicia of ANIMAL BACKWARDS to the driving rock of HOLD ME DOWN, OMNI continues Minus The Bear’s shape-shifting evolution and is a culmination of their past influences and present inspirations.

Over the years, Minus the Bear has won over legions of fans and critics with an exhilarating live show and a sound that is uniquely their own. With a devoted fan base, Minus the Bear sell out 2000-capacity venues nationwide whether on or off album cycle, have generated more than 13 million plays on MySpace, and continuously release new material (EPs and singles) to fan and critical acclaim.

Tour dates, track listing and more news to be announced shortly.”
