Admiral Fallow have just released a new music video for the track "Isn't This World Enough" from their sophomore album Tree Bursts In Snow. The video plays much like a tour diary, including footage from their travels across the UK and US over the past two of years.
The song also acts as the title track to Nettwerk's yearly holiday album; Isn't This World Enough: A Nettwerk Christmas is out November 20th.

Partnering with Huffington Post, Angus Stone reveals a brand new short film for '”Monsters,” from his solo release, Broken Brights (out now via Nettwerk Records). Stone steps in front and behind the camera to create the exceptional follow-up to two previous self-directed videos – “Broken Brights” and “Wooden Chair.”
Produced in collaboration with Evil Twin partners Taylor Steele and Todd DiCiurcio, the short captures the mysticism and stunning landscapes of Australia’s lush forests. Trekking through an imaginary wooded universe, Stone crosses path with ominous and supernatural characters – including a deadly band of “Lord Of The Flies”-like children and human hybrid goddesses.
State Radio frontman Chad Stokes sits down with the Cesar Millan (aka Dog Whisperer) for his publication “Cesar’s Way” to discuss his new four-legged sidekick, and sometimes fourth bandmember Lefty.
On Rabbit Inn Rebellion, the track "Desert Queen" is written about the Aussie/Coyote/Chow/Wolf friend who tagged along for the train-jumping adventures that inspired the album. The same way modern gutter punks and age-old hobos have traversed the country, Stokes and his brother rode from coast to coast stopping off in cities and towns, picking up stories...and a dog.
Fun fact: Lefty has rocker roots too; he’s descended from the Grateful Dead’s touring dog, Karma. “He was given to me by a Choctaw Indian man called Toothless Donny near Flagstaff, Arizona. We bonded right away.”
To catch State Radio and/or meet Lefty, see full dates below.

Victoria, B.C.-based roots rock outfit Current Swell have announced tour dates in the U.S. in support of their new album, Long Time Ago, which was released via Nettwerk on October 16th. The band will make two special east coast stops in New York City (Monday, November 19th) and Rochester, NY (Tuesday, November 20th) before heading back to the west coast for a December run of dates starting in Portland, OR on the 7th (full list of dates below). This marks Current Swell’s first official headline tour in the States; the band recently opened for Dispatch on a small run of west coast dates.
Since forming in 2005, Current Swell’s west coast influenced sound—an infectious combination of blues, roots, pop and rock—have earned the quartet scores of devoted fans from Canada to Brazil, where they recently returned from headlining two major festivals in Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo. The independent band started with modest expectations, playing shows in settings that ranged from backyards to beaches and using social media to grow their audience. Since then, they have supported artists like Dispatch, Xavier Rudd, K’Naan, K-OS, The Beach Boys, The Tragically Hip and more. Last summer, Current Swell not only headlined a Canada Day concert in front of a crowd of 45,000, but they also earned first place at Vancouver’s Peak Performance Project, a professional development program designed to help emerging artists.

"['The Great Exhale'] exudes a somber quality, built from an orchestra of violin, shimmering cymbals and frontman Tony Dekker’s morose baritone." -- MTV Hive
Yesterday, MTV Hivepremiered a new video for the song "The Great Exhale" from Toronto indie-folk darlings Great Lake Swimmers. The track is from the band's fifth studio album, New Wild Everywhere. GLS frontman Tony Dekker and video director Christopher Mills spoke with MTV Hive about the making of the video. Said Mills, “I found the song to be really haunting and beautiful, so the original concept for the video was based on a very loose idea of exploring empty, dissonant places, and to more of a visual essay that put ‘the music on the wind that passes through. The plan was to fill these spaces with these drawings, and ‘ghostly light and effects’ in ways that complimented the music.” Read more at MTV Hive here: http://mtvhv.com/QDVRN2.
Today, State Radio release Rabbit Inn Rebellion via Ruff Shod/Nettwerk Records.
State Radio’s Chad Stokes (of Dispatch & Chadwick Stokes), Chuck Fay and Mike “Mad Dog” Najarian serve up rock n’ roll realism that weaves together stories of the downtrodden and the oppressed, but never loses its sense of hope. Demonstrating the band’s versatility, Rabbit Inn Rebellion is raw and gritty, rolling with thunderous drumming and delectably grimy guitars, moving away from the previously reggae- and ska-tinged productions on 2009's Let It Go.
To celebrate the album release, State Radio kick off their North American tour today in Carrboro, NC. The 2-month tour will include two dates - October 26th and 27th - at the Calling All Crows' 4th Annual Northampton Halloween Weekend. The weekend includes the CAC Northampton Halloween 5K, where State Radio fans and Calling All Crows supporters take to the streets of downtown, in costume, for a fun walk/run to support CAC’s new marriage equality campaign, ME.
