Watch the lyric video for “我的歌声里 (You Exist In My Song),” a track recorded in Wanting’s native tongue of Mandarin, from her debut album Everything In The World.
Vancouver-based, Chinese-born artist Wanting has gone Platinum in China in just one week with her debut album, Everything In The World, which Universal Music China (via a licensing deal with Nettwerk)released on July 5th. Though based in Canada, Wanting has spent the past few years building a rabid online following via Chinese YouTube, and most recently had the song “Drenched” from her debut album prominently featured in the Chinese indie-flick Love In The Buff.
Nettwerk CEO Terry McBride (who also personally manages this rising talent) comments on Wanting’s success in China: “Everything In The World is an album three years in the making. Wanting delivered an authentic and heartfelt album that I believed would not only resonate with her generation, but would also transcend language boundaries and talk to a worldwide audience. It was essential that we had the right partners in China to deliver this album properly, and we found that in Universal Music China.”
Everything In The World was released via Nettwerk Records in North America on April 24, and her unique story quickly caught the attention of the CBC flagship nightly news program The National.

Iconic frontman Peter Murphy has announced a final run of intimate live shows in support of his latest album, Ninth. The 11 dates include a stop in Hollywood, CA at The Roxy on Thursday, August 16th as part of the Sunset Strip Music Festival, as well as an east coast date in Brooklyn, NY at The Wick on Sunday, August 26th. Ours will support all dates except for the Brooklyn show.
Peter Murphy returned in 2011 with his long awaited ninth solo album, aptly titled Ninth, which the LA Times deemed “a dynamic rock record...one of the strongest of his career” and Time Out New York called “a badass new effort.” The former frontman of Bauhaus has toured extensively behind Ninth—including a major headline tour, a second co-headline tour with She Wants Revenge, and spurts of smaller, intimate gigs around the country—proving that his live show and unforgettable voice are still a force with which to be reckoned. In a recent live review, the LA Weekly commented, “Once again, Peter Murphy shames everyone else...,” while the OC Weekly called his performance “a hell of a show.”

The warm, dry air of the Los Angeles basin continues its constant temperature, inviting art and progress for those who can stare through the plastic debauchery of its passing inhabitants. Just underneath the surface, buried in a submarine-like state of creative metamorphosis, the four original members of electronic rock outfit Shiny Toy Guns shape-shift in circles; building, cutting, carving and finishing an album they have spent the last three years of their lives in violent labor with. III, which marks the elated return of vocalist Carah Faye Charnow and the first new material by the original line-up in six years, will be released October 23 on Five Seven Music. The lead single “Waiting Alone” made its debut yesterday on Alternative Press’ website (here) and is available now at iTunes and all other digital retailers.
III, the band’s third album features Carah Faye Charnow, the original vocalist who, along with band mates Chad Petree (vocals/guitars), Jeremy Dawson (keyboards) and Mikey Martin (drums), propelled Shiny Toy GUns into the spotlight with their first hits “Le Disko” and “You Are The One” from their debut 2006 release We Are Pilots. Production on III, courtesy of Mirror Machines (the band’s Petree and Dawson), is lush and dramatic, ranging from driving tracks like “Somewhere To Hide,” “Mercy” and “The Sun” to sublime like “Wait For Me” and “Fading Listening.” The album is mixed by the legendary Tony Maserati (Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Jason Mraz).
Yesterday, Dispatch premeired their single and title track from their forthcoming album, Circles Around The Sun, on RollingStone.com (HERE). The album, the first in over a decade, will be released on August 21st on the band’s own Bomber Records. Watch the lyric video and listen to the track above.
Circles Around The Sun is the group’s first studio album in twelve years and was produced by Peter Katis (Interpol, Jonsi, The National). The album is an eclectic rock and roll record that delivers on the gutsy storytelling, compelling songwriting, and radiant harmonies that earned the band its diehard fanbase. Available now on the band's web store, a limited quantity of music and merch bundles are available including: deluxe vinyl with a 28 page hardcover book, CDs, apparel, autographed photo prints, and more. For a complete breakdown of the various bundles available, click HERE.
"Rob Me Blind is a labor of love that reflects [Jay's] growth as an artist, and his desire to take new chances." – The Huffington Post
“[David] Kahne has harnessed Brannan’s obvious natural talents, and instead of just rolling out another modern folk record, the two have toyed with tempo, clever arrangements and thematic variety to produce an honest, informal and sometimes amusing collection of songs.” – musicOMH (UK)
Just a few weeks before the U.S. leg of his world tour begins, Jay Brannan has unveiled a new video for the title track of his latest album, Rob Me Blind. The video premiered yesterday on AOL’s Spinner.com.
Jay tells Spinner.com, "I'm way too shy to ever approach anyone on the street, on the subway, in an elevator or even at a bar. So it was fun to make a video involving chemistry-at-first-sight, where the characters didn't just end up going home to check the 'missed connections' listings on Craigslist."
Since the release of his sophomore full-length album Rob Me Blind, Jay has been touring the world, from the UK to Germany to Israel to Australia. His 28-date U.S. tour will begin on Wednesday, July 18th in Boston and wrap in his home city of New York on Saturday, August 25th. (Keep reading for full list of U.S. tour dates and more information).
