Boxed In To Release Acclaimed Debut Album March 31



“The debut album from Boxed In will enhance your life…Oli Bayston is an impressive songwriter and his piano-pinned dance-pop album carries zero duds.” — NME

“…a beauty, capturing Bayston’s housed-up, lo-fi appeal, which involves locked-in, Hot Chip recalling grooves, world-weary, Bernard Summer-like vocals and simple-as-pie melodies that worm their way into your soul and claim squatters rights. Stunning.” — Sunday Times “Debut Of The Week”

"Boxed In…hits hard enough in places to get the party started and holds just enough back to make you want to return to it again and again.” — The Line of Best Fit

“A charming blend of electronic and indie sounds bolstered by witty songwriting …a winning debut that's often more consistent than the work of their better-known contemporaries.” – All Music

"'All Your Love Is Gone’ is one of those motorik rave-ups that just keeps building intensity, and Michael Rother has given it a makeover that maintains the brisk urgency while significantly changing its sound.” —
Stereogum

Delerium To Release New EP - "Glimmer" Feat. Emily Haines

 

Influential Canadian outfit Delerium are set to release the Glimmer EP on January 27, 2015. The EP includes the recently recovered, self titled single “Glimmer” featuring Emily Haines (of Metric). Originally recorded in 2005, the track has recently resurfaced from the stacks, and will also be featured on an upcoming rarities and b-sides release (date TBA). The Glimmer EP includes remixes by New Orleans-born, Connecticut-based DJ Emjae and a collaboration with Stereojackers and Mark Loverush.

Listen And Share “Glimmer” Feat. Emily Haines:


"Glimmer reads a bit like a Hollywood mystery having been lost for years, has resurfaced by happenstance" says Bill Leeb of Delerium. "When our music engineer and mixer, Greg Reely, was pilfering through some recordings, he stumbled upon this song that features Emily Haines of Metric. As it turns out, this track comes from the Chimera album sessions when I collaborated with Carmen Rizzo and Jamie Muhoberac. The song's words remind us even in the darkest moments when it seems all is lost, with perseverance and a little luck, we can find our own place and keep that glimmer of hope."

William Close To Perform At Official NFL Super Bowl Tailgate Party, Alongside Gavin DeGraw & Dierks Bentley

Nettwerk recording artist William Close & The Earth Harp Collective – a team of musicians, dancers, aerialists and artists - will bring their unique performance-based experience to the official NFL Super Bowl XLIX Tailgate Party, alongside fellow musicians Dierks Bentley and Gavin DeGraw. In the past, the Tailgate Party has boasted a talent lineup that included Phillip Phillips, Lenny Kravitz, The Fray, OneRepublic, Jersey Boys and more.

Installation artist, musician and America’s Got Talent finalist William Close has built over 100 one-of-a-kind musical instruments, including the world’s largest string instrument, The Earth Harp. Developed by Close, the body of the instrument rests on the stage, while the strings travel over the audience, attaching to the back of the theatre, concert hall and/or festival ground, turning every space into an instrument. By rubbing violin rosin covered gloves along the strings, Close delivers The Harp’s signature bowed sound. “It’s an instrument unlike anything Bach or Beethoven could have ever imagined,” writes The New York Times.
