Teen Daze's latest album, The Inner Mansions, will release on 6 November via Lefse and the artist has just released the first tune, "Union".

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).

Flock of Dimes 7-inch set for release on September 25.

On September 25, Wye Oak vocalist Jenn Wasner will release “Curtain”, a 7-inch under the name Flock of Dimes, on Merge Records. Buoyed by thin, sweeping synth pads and crackling distortion, the track offers ample excuse for Wasner’s most swelling Elizabeth Fraser impression. According to Wasner, the song “documents the thoughtless, obsessed joy of new love.” Either way, it’s a far cry from the vocalist’s more understated work with Wye Oak.
