In anticipation of the second full length album due in November, The Inner Mansions, Teen Daze has released a new single called “Union”. The song features a performance by Frankie Rose of the Dum Dum Girls and Crystal Stilts. After a quick blast of guitar fuzz, buried vocals float along with a rock backbeat before it all drops out for an acoustic solo. Things slowly build again in a soundscape of shimmering synths until a final wall of decaying notes.
Teen Daze is the project of Vancouver music producer Jamison and two tracks from his first album, All of Us, Together, were recently picked for the PopMatters Summer 2012 New Music Playlist. The dreamy instrumentals “Brooklyn Sunburn” and “Hold” provided the perfect space out vibe to end another playlist. Teen Daze will also be in NYC during the CMJ Music Festival on October 16 at Pianos (Lefse Records Showcase) and October 18 at Glasslands (Force Field PR Showcase).
My Jerusalem founder and singer Jeff Klein describes the Austin band’s latest album—Preachers releasing 9 October via the End Records— as “a darker record. So much had changed since Gone For Good. We’d all kind of been through hell and back again in different ways, and this was the natural artistic result of all of that. But I think it’s a beautiful, comforting darkness. It’s real, but not selfish.”
The band has done well in the last two years with an appearance on BBC Radio 6, many festival appearances and a “Song of the Day” selection by Spinner. Klein says that My Jerusalem is “Post-Modern Southern Gothic Soul” and there really couldn’t be a more perfect description for the haunting, jaggedy edge of their tunes. Case in point is “Mono”, which we premiere today, the fourth track on the upcoming record.
