Dig the New Breed: (Stockholm Edition) Television Keeps Us Apart, The Pale Corners + The Mary Onettes
Stockholm, Sweden's duo "Television keeps us apart" have been messaging with us about their mini-album "A Slight Change of Light" which is now available for free download. If you enjoy artists on the Labrador label, specifically the soft electronic and new wave pop of groups like The Mary Onettes, or say, The Radio Dept. then TVKUA should fit right into your cosmic balance. The short-player is available for download via Soundcloud and although the mini-album was originally released in 2009, the band has also just released a new single called "Death by Sister Five" which includes two newer tracks that are also available for download as well. The band is also working on another EP release which should be out at some point this year. From Carl: "Right now we are about to finish a EP, we have not yet decided how to release it. We are not actively looking for being picked up by any label, in fact we have already turned some offers down. But it all depends on who wants to work with us and how." Labels and producers take note.
Speaking of Stockholm, independent label Since Records' will release newly reformed group The Pale Corners' latest single "REM" which is a follow up to their last single "Fireflies". Both were mixed by Philip Ekström from The Mary Onettes (who, if you missed it, back in February released their own band's limited-edition "Love Forever" EP as well). The Pale Corners new single will be released on the 4th of April, 2012. Here's a little history behind the release: "In the summer of 2009 The Pale Corners went down to the summerhouse in the Karlskrona archipelago in south Sweden. Started to recorded new songs, the work went well, but when the band came back to Stockholm, they started fighting. After a year of conversations, midnight text-messages and discussions of ideas and sound they agreed and began to complete the songs in the end of 2010."
