Frazey Ford To Release New Album 'Indian Ocean' On October 14

Frazey Ford, best known as the lead voice of beloved alt-folk band The Be Good Tanyas, returns with her second solo effort, Indian Ocean (October 14) -- a lush album filled with songs about pain and dealing with tough truths, but also about love, contrition and being bold. Part of what gives Indian Ocean its gilded edge is the work of Al Green’s band, The Hi Rhythm Section, the iconic architects of the famous singer's instrumental sound. There's affirmation in its 11 songs, as Ford's self-possession and passion puts flesh to the musical bones. Lead single “September Fields,” which premiered on NPR’s All Songs Considered, is available now on iTunes.

The Trews Return To The U.S. For August Tour

 

"The band delivers solid, no-nonsense sets full of grizzled pub-rock, gritty power-pop and mod-influenced classic pop, with with a dash of self-effacing humor and humility thrown in for good measure."
- Annie Zaleski, Cleveland Plain Dealer

"Electric ultra-pop… Guitars and keyboards grind in time to the big buzzy heart-bleeding vocals."

- IMPOSE

Canada's The Trews released their self-titled, Nettwerk debut digitally in April and supported it by heading down from the Great White North for a run of shows in the States. The quartet follows up with a jaunt through the mid-west starting August 10th in Michigan. Two of the shows (Cincinnati & Louisville) are make-ups for postponed gigs when singer Colin McDonald came down with a broncial infection and the band had to cancel their 2nd and 3rd performances ever in 1000+ gigs over 12 years.

LA-based Family Of The Year share “Hero” from their album, Loma Vista.

The band has also toured with Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes, Mumford & Sons, Grouplove, Good Old War, Belle Brigade, and Walk The Moon. A unique brand of indie, folk and acid rock, Huffington Post sums it up best, "Loma Vista is pure pop bliss, it deserves to appear on many year-end Top 10 lists."
