Neon Sigh + Noyes Records welcome Ringo Deathstarr “God’s Dream” release and US tour!

Ringo Deathstarr - God's Dream US album and tour! (Neon Sigh / Noyes)

Ringo Deathstarr are making no hesitations when it comes to checking things off their 2014 To Do List. The Austin, Texas trio will kick off the new year by both releasing God’s Dream, a 12-inch EP on Neon Sigh / Noyes Records shortly after completing a 29 date, nation wide tour. The album is set to be released on March 25, 2014.

Warm guitars and pulsing drums combine to form an aggressively atmospheric bubble, encompassing the listener in an infectious cohesive which blends the sounds of an era when Sonic Youth and Jesus and Mary Chain walked the Earth with a forward thinking and creatively stubborn indie darling. Joined by Adam Franklin of Swervedriver on the track “Nowhere” and Jeff Schroeder of the Smashing Pumpkins on “Chain Saw Morning,” Ringo Deathstarr has created a flawlessly crafted sound on God’s Dream, destined and deserving to exist on vinyl.

Thankfully for enthusiasts, that is exactly where God’s Dream has ended up. Previously only available on CD through the Japanese label Vinyl Junkie, Ringo Deathstarr will release an exclusive run of colorized vinyl. The first run of 100 copies, available from Neon Sigh and Noyes Records, will be hand numbered and pressed in a mint/magenta split color. An additional 400 records will be pressed in a transparent coke bottle coloring and made available at tour dates listed below while supplies last. The release will also be available in digital format.

The band will begin and end their national tour in Austin, Texas, with the tour kicking off on February 13, 2014 and ending at this year’s South By Southwest. Dates can be found below.

Ringo Deathstarr, a musical trio from Austin, TX, have been putting out records since 2007. Consisting of Elliott Frazier (guitar, vocals), Alex Gehring (bass, vocals), and Daniel Coborn (drums, vocals), their sound is born from a love of melody, a love of guitar, and a hatred of pompous vocals. Finding it to be too much fun, the group has expounded upon the sounds of the masters before them. This desire to play the music they were too young to witness as children has taken Ringo Deathstarr around the globe, performing in places as far flung as Israel, Mexico, Brazil, Japan, Europe, Canda, and the continental USA, supporting favorites like …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead, Dean Wareham, The Wedding Present, and The Smashing Pumpkins. With two Full length records (Colour Trip and Mauve) and a handful of EPs and singles in the bag, now is the time for a new EP, “God’s Dream,” which was recorded in Austin and on a ranch in Dripping Springs, TX. For this record, the band reunited with Chris “Frenchie” Smith, who co-produced their debut EP.

Ringo Deathstarr will release God’s Dream on March, 25, 2014 on Neon Sigh / Noyes Records.

The Crocodile Cafe, Seattle
Sunday, August 18, 2013
7:00pm

Piano Piano will be celebrating the release of their debut full length album, “When I Was Not In Myself, No One Alarmed Me”, on August 18th at The Crocodile in Seattle! The album was
tracked at Bear Creek Studios (Blonde Redhead, Built To Spill, The Afghan Whigs, Soundgarden, The Lumineers) by Jerry Streeter and was mastered by Greg Calbi (Mogwai, Sunny Day Real Estate, Jeff Buckley, Shearwater, Sonic Youth) at Sterling Sound in New York City, New York. The album features ten tracks of exploratory wall of sound rock music and lush soundscapes that owe as much to modern composers like Brian Eno, Clint Mansell, and Harold Budd as they do more conventional song structure.

The show is at the historic Crocodile Cafe and will feature additional performances by Slow Bird, Tokyoidaho, and Badwater Fire Company, some of the best current music happening in Seattle.

The show is $10 in advance and $12 day of show. In addition to entrance to the show, the ticket cost also includes a free copy of the album for each attendant!

SNOWDRIFT / GOLDEN GARDENS / JUPE JUPE / BLUE LIGHT CURTAIN : SEATTLE, 8 AUG 2013

SNOWDRIFT ///

A remarkable and powerful underground American band that is shaping sound into something all their own. -All Music Guide

I’ve got massive praise for the debut album by the Seattle trio Snowdrift, whose female lead vocals and spacious rural sounds evoke northern European farmsteads and long stretches of flat horizons. The eight long ballads range from a kind of cold Danish psychedelic folk to whacked out provincial torch songs, like in-breds pushing the envelope at a county fare. Get this record from www.paradigm-recordings.com. – Julian Cope

Fronted by Kat Terran’s soft, haunting voice – a mix between Stevie Nicks and Karen O – they are an impressive band that smothers the gaps with foggy electric pianos and a slew of nightmarish, electronic samples. There is a ghastly, Edward Scissorhands-type beauty to this album that is medicine to the ears after being bombarded with disc after disc of manic indie-pop. Snowdrift realizes that you don’t need to run when you look so good walking. – Three Imaginary Girls

http://snowdriftband.bandcamp.com/
http://www.facebook.com/pages/Snowdrift/479000990649

GOLDEN GARDENS ///

Not unlike the transition from winter to spring in the Pacific Northwest, Golden Garden’s latest release “Narcissus” lifts the dreary fog, allowing skies of the purest blue to shine through in all their loveliness. Ever-present is the trademark Golden Gardens “sound” – that lush moodiness so prevalent on 2012′s How Brave The Hunted Wolves – yet here it comes across as fresh, bright, hopeful.

“You could throw out the names of more than a few established national-scale favorites that approximate the sound of Seattle duo Golden Gardens, but they really play their own brand of sedated electronic baseball. Lo-fi, beat-savvy gothgaze…” – Seattle Weekly

http://goldengardens.bandcamp.com/
http://www.wearegoldengardens.com/
http://www.facebook.com/goldengardens

JUPE JUPE ///

Analog synths. Indie-glam guitars. Pulsating beats. Jupe Jupe creates dark, dancey, escapist music you can move to. Jupe Jupe is composed of My Young on vocals and synthesizer, Bryan Manzo and Patrick Partington on guitar, and drummer Jarrod Arbini, veterans of the Seattle and Austin music scenes.

http://jupejupemusic.bandcamp.com/
http://www.jupejupemusic.com/
http://www.facebook.com/jupejupemusic

BLUE LIGHT CURTAIN ///

Paul Groth and Laura Bratton take their vocal influences from bands like Low, My Bloody Valentine and Yo La Tengo. The lyrics are simplistic and repetitive adding to the hypnotic musical drone. Michael Sterling drives the group’s dynamics by playing with and against synthetic pulses.
