Shlohmo Signs to True Panther, Releases New Single Today on True Panther/WeDidIt + Live North American Tour Announced for Spring 2015

By Rian on Tuesday, December 9th, 2014

Another announcement from True Panther this afternoon, in Dean’s words:

Waking up from a miraculous dream…pinching ourselves…only to realize that it’s true.

We’re somehow fortunate enough to welcome one of our favorite young producers in the entire world to True Panther Sounds : Shlohmo born Henry Laufer. We will be releasing his forthcoming music alongside our friends, Wedidit, Shlohmo’s homegrown imprint.

As a gentle introduction to this celestial coupling we’re happy to share the first new original solo music from Shlohmo in quite some time, a single called “Emerge From Smoke”.

We printed up 1000 copies on a 7″ that features a physical-only b-side called “Ode 2 Tha Whip”.

Pre-order Emerge From Smoke 7″ HERE
buy Emerge From Smoke on iTunes

Shlohmo’s sound has evolved in ways that are difficult to describe. His unique approach to production seems as steeped in sludge metal as it is in drum & bass, as much IDM as it is R&B. It is somewhere deep within this sonic collage that he has carved out a distinct and celebrated voice in the electronic music space. His production on BANKS’ 2014 single “Brain,” and his sought-after remixes and crossover style, as witnessed in this year’s collaborative release with Jeremih, are further evidence of his immense talent and wide scope of influence.

Next spring also signifies a return to the stage for Shlohmo with a massive headlining national tour, his first with a live band, with more details on its setup to emerge in the new year. With Shlohmo’s new approach to his live set, new label home and new single “Emerge From Smoke,” Shlohmo’s 2015 marks a very exciting and distinct musical direction with a big announcement to follow after the holidays.

Tobias Jesso Jr. – GOON out March 17 + First US Tour

By Rian on Tuesday, December 9th, 2014

In Dean’s words:

We are really besides ourselves with pride and joy to announce that True Panther Sounds will be releasing the debut album from Tobias Jesso Jr. \ March 17th, 2015. Want to tell you about it, but thought it’d be best for Tobias for put it into his own words…

In 2008 I moved to LA to play backup bass for a Pop singer. That job didn’t work out, but I ended staying in LA for four years. I returned to North Vancouver because my mother had been diagnosed with cancer (she’s better now). I wrote most of the songs on my album Goon about my time spent in LA. It was a reflection that included, like the most popular of love clichés, a tough break up.

In my haste returning to Vancouver, I had left all my instruments in a storage locker in LA. My sister had moved out and left her piano at my parent’s house, an instrument I had yet to explore. The first song I wrote on that piano was ‘Just A Dream.’ It was also one of my first attempts at singing. I have yet come to terms with my singing voice, but at the time I was left with no other option.

I recorded the demo, and then did a few more. Afterwards I sent the demos to JR White [Girls], someone who had produced one of my favorite records of the past few years (and was also signed to True Panther, the label I’m currently on). Soon after, he asked me to come down to San Francisco to record an album. After a series of visa issues and border complications, I finally met him and spent the next few months jumping from San Francisco to Los Angeles, recording in studios and bedrooms with friends.

After all that was said and done, I got offered to have a few more of my songs produced by Patrick Carney [The Black Keys] in Nashville, and Ariel Rechstaid in Los Angeles. I owe the sound of the record to the great effort of everyone involved, the producers and musicians doing and playing things I couldn’t and treating the production with the same reverence I treat my songwriting.
The writing will always be the most important to me; the production, playing and singing I am still figuring out. I still play a bit of guitar, but I’m mostly sticking to the piano these days.
- TJJR. December 2014

‘Goon’ was recorded over the last two years and features production from Chet “JR” White (formerly of Girls), Black Keys’ Patrick Carney, and Ariel Rechtshaid (Vampire Weekend, Haim, Sky Ferreira). Pitchfork recently gave album highlight “Hollywood” Best New Track, calling it “the film negative to Billy Joel’s ‘New York State of Mind’.” ‘Goon’ album art is pictured above.

True Panther’s Tobias Jesso Jr Debuts song via Blogotheque

By Rian on Wednesday, September 10th, 2014

In Dean’s words:

Tobias Jesso Jr is a songwriter, piano player, and singer from Vancouver, Canada who has just signed to True Panther Sounds and will release his debut album in the spring of 2015. He recently went to Los Angeles and recorded Takeaway Session for La Blogothèque at the Kibitz Room of Canter’s Deli. The live performance is the first video footage online of Tobias and features a new song from the forthcoming album, ‘Without You’ and the previously released Just A Dream’.

Since posting his first demo online for ‘Just A Dream’ in 2013, Tobias Jesso Jr has been working with JR White (Girls) and several other notable producers on his debut album in studios in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Vancouver. In July he shared his latest song ‘True Love’ which was named Best New Track by Pitchfork, called “Stunning” by Consequence Of Sound, with NME adding, “‘True Love’ is little short of wondrous. It recalls peak-period Elton John in its stark simplicity, with a bit of Ryan Adams and Harry Nilsson chucked in for good measure.”

Whilst working on his album, Tobias launched a singles subscription series. The premise is simple – $5 for 5 (plus shipping) of his unreleased, unadorned piano demos pressed onto flexi 7” singles and mailed to subscribers in 3-week intervals. There are a few subscriptions left of the pressing of 300. The first song, ‘Bad Dreams’ is already in the mail…. Sign up HERE

Tobias will be also making his live debut at Pitchfork Paris Festival this year.”

Glasser – dazzling Shape video premieres

By Gabe on Thursday, January 9th, 2014

Today with the help of The Creators Project, Glasser debuts her incredible video for “Shape”, from the recent album Interiors (buy the album).

The video was directed by Jonathan Turner, Glasser’s visual collaborator on Interiors.

King Krule – “A Lizard State” video debuts

By Gabe on Wednesday, January 8th, 2014

Today Archy and co. released the video for “A Lizard State” from last year’s 6 Feet Beneath The Moon.

The video, directed by Jamie-James Medina and introduced by Alfred Hitchcock, was inspired by Hitchcock’s film Dial M For Murder:

>

Speaking on the video, Medina said:

“Archy and I both love Hitchcock and we’ve spent a lot of time away from music talking about his films. When I heard the phone ringing over the intro all I could think about was Dial M For Murder and the scene where Grace Kelly answers the phone. That really started the conversation. I had this idea of Hitchcock introducing King Krule. I’ve seen every episode of Hitchcock Presents and every introduction that he gives is brilliant – you could use any episode and it would work. We loved the idea of Archy defying gravity and that being the setting for his performance. But right up until shooting we didn’t know if we’d get permission to use the Hitchcock footage – to have him appear. Its such an honor that the Hitchcock estate gave us the opportunity. And then at the very end he said, ‘and the room is full of lizards’, so we had to find a set of lizards and managed to get a guy who entertains at children’s parties.”

A Note and A New Song From Glasser

By Todd Netter on Wednesday, August 21st, 2013

The last public show Glasser played was February of last year. Since then, she’s been locked away in a studio working on her follow-up to 2010′s Ring. She’s playing her first show since then this weekend at LA’s FYF Fest. She’s decided to use the occasion to release her first new music in a while. The song is called “Shape”, it’s a very powerful song, and we can honestly say that it’s one of the best pieces of music that’s ever come out under the True Panther imprint. More Glasser very soon…in the meantime enjoy the music and this note from her.

I have been thinking a lot about space. Not only outer space and physical boundaries, but also inner mental space. There are so many beginnings and endings and edges and shores inside and outside our minds. Some are impossible to scale and they make us feel small. I feel small and far removed at times, and I push myself farther away in a kind of compulsion. These are physical comforts I cling to, but always when I cling to them I realize that the isolation I’m afraid of is in my heart and not on a crowded sidewalk. I also have moments of ecstasy, milestones that drive me forward in search of more. These emotions and sensations elude me though, they seem to exist in their own seperate planes. I still chase them. I can become so mesmerized by something outside myself, a person or place that I try to reflect its power and the way it makes me feel.

This is why I feel so lucky to be able to make art, especially music. My experiences flow together and become the stuff of invention. I spent the last year and a half making my new album, which will come out in October. I thought about architecture, a physical imposition in my life, and the fluid emotional boundaries of relationships, also sometimes imposed.

More news to come, in the meantime, enjoy “SHAPE”

from the desk of True Panther Sounds: KING KRULE ANNOUNCES DEBUT ALBUM + SHARES NEW SINGLE “EASY EASY”

By Robby on Tuesday, July 9th, 2013

As King Krule, 18 year old south-east London based singer/producer/songwriter Archy Marshall has quietly and stealthily crafted a reputation for himself as one of the most raw and startling voices of a new generation. With his unexpectedly deep and mournful baritone tracing fissures of disappointment and social disorientation to devastating effect, Marshall has harnessed the inchoate frustration and fury of youth and translated it into a series of brilliant singles released on the likes of True Panther Sounds and Rinse over the past few years.

Now comes 6 Feet Beneath the Moon, his first full-length on True Panther Sounds, and with it, the much anticipated unveiling of the full scope and scale of Marshall’s vision. Over the course of 14 tracks, Marshall’s passions and confusions are rubbed raw and laid bare, the only connective tissue throughout it all being one of searing lyrical clarity paired with a confounding musical deftness which utterly belies his tender years. From the opening clarion call of “Easy, Easy” it is abundantly clear that this is a breathtakingly bold and arresting sonic worldview, as his songs, produced by Marshall along with Rodaidh McDonald (The XX, Savages), open up to become a loose knit meditation on regret and discontent, loss of faith and renewal of hope, and optimism in the face of desperation.

Eschewing much of his previously released material, 6 Feet Beneath the Moon firmly yet soundly rejects any notion of contemporary trends or peers to occupy its very own unique place on the music landscape, oscillating gently between the classic 50′s soul of Gene Vincent and Elvis Presley to the minimal, avant-garde experimentation of Penguin Café Orchestra, to even the electronic smog and dub textures of Marshall’s beloved Rinse FM. This is a record where the nakedly bluesy stomp of the likes of “A Lizard State” and “Easy, Easy” sit effortlessly next to the low-end frequency and shimmering beats of “Neptune Estate” and “Will I Come,” after all. It is reflective as much of Marshall’s own eclectic tastes as it is of the frenetic pulse and rhythm of the city around him, particularly the rapidly changing south-east areas in which he grew up. There is a genuine grittiness and world weariness ingrained here, as exemplified so succinctly when Marshall sings, “Hate…runs through my blood” on the stunning “Out Getting Ribs,” the track which started all the fuss.

All these esoteric textures and fidgety, off-kilter rhythms make perfect sense as an album however, especially when you consider that incredible voice. Whether he is singing ruefully of youthful disaffection and “the heat of my own treason” (“Ceiling”) or spitting out venomous lines like “I’m not going to crack like you cracked…I don’t want to be trapped in the black of your heart” over the jittery “A Lizard State,” its clear that something which marks Marshall out is his stunning ability to turn intense emotional peaks and troughs into spectacular pieces of artful, atmospheric and anthemic balladeering.

Some of the imagery is disturbing to be sure (as on the closer “Bathed in Grey” where he offhandedly murmurs that he “there was blood…found a body in the dark”) but the songs are also imbued with genuine heart as well, as epitomised on his heart rending update of “Out Getting Ribs.” Taken as a whole, 6 Feet Beneath the Moon is the sound of a young man growing up – not for nothing is this album being released, unconventionally enough, on a Saturday, which also marks Marshall’s 19th birthday – and attempting to grapple with the realities of the world he inhabits, an unsparing dissection of the social decay that has begun to set in around him – and a fascinating, brutal journey it is too.
