New from #1 Spotify Global Viral Act, Emmit Fenn
Fresh off the releases of his Prologue EP, multidimensional 21 year old artist, Emmit Fenn arrives with two gorgeous new releases; a stripped back video featuring YUNA via PAPER Magazine and the jazzy indietronic track, “Everybody Else,” via Mass Appeal.

THE SHINS SHARE NEW VIDEO FOR “HALF A MILLION”
The Shins have released their innovative new video for “Half a Million”. Directed by Lamar + Nik, the “Half a Million” visual was created using 5,566 stickers that were then stop-motion animated.
Inspired by New York City’s rapid pace of change, decay and rebirth, and the dichotomy NYC presents of arriving at tranquility though chaos and clutter, “Youth Moose” is a complex collage of sound, delivered through gritty, succinct songs.
On “Youth Moose,” Spirit Plate reacts to New York City as well as our greater globe through many sharp lenses. To initially gain inspiration for songs, the band closely observed and cataloged street art tattooed to Brooklyn buildings, some of which were scrawled decades ago and others part of the modern resurgence of murals, tags, and visible art everywhere from Bushwick to the Bronx (hence the title “Youth Moose,” which in itself is a reference to a commonly seen NYC tag). As a result, there is as much of a nostalgic aspect to this record as there is forward-thinking. Songwriter Brian Russ has personally been living in, playing shows and recording music in Brooklyn for the past 12 years and “Youth Moose” has many reflections to offer from someone who can now safely call Brooklyn his home.
GRAMMY-nominated British singer, songwriter and producer MNEK has returned with an official video for his powerful and emotive new single, “Paradise.” The striking visuals take you on a man’s isolated journey through pyramids, brutalist buildings and a dystopian landscape of other metaphorical images.

This song is therapeutic for me personally, and I hope it speaks to our fans. Sometimes when you just can’t change shit, you got to realize you can’t mold everything in your life. You kind of just have to roll with the punches.”

EMA SHARES NEW SONG “BLOOD AND CHALK”
“‘Blood and Chalk’ was originally written for the #Horror soundtrack,” explains Erika M. Anderson (aka EMA). “I wrote the lyrics very quickly, with the idea that it was about the experience of being a 12 year-old girl, kind of right on the cusp between childhood and starting to grow up. But when I played it for Jake (Portrait) he said he thought it was about a police shooting. I was kind of shocked, but it also makes complete sense from that point of view. Makes me wonder if my subconscious mind was working on a different level, creating a double meaning.”

Halmstead, Sweden-based, psychedelic garage rockers, Baby Jesus, release “The Beat” video and announce their follow-up LP, Took Our Sons Away, due out September 8, 2017 via Yippee Ki Yay Records (Soaked, Las Piñas).
Today, All Things Go premieres the band’s lead single and music video, “The Beat,” stating, “With low light and minimal focus, the band are sharing what seems like a lyric video, but hit hard with punk-twinged sonic madness.” The track comes off the forthcoming release, Took Our Sons Away. The album has distinct psychedelic flare, a punk edge with enough energy to heat up a hearty dinner of Sjömansbiff for 12. Second single, “Even Though You Look So Good,” presents the strange dichotomy of feeling both alive and aware, and gone, simultaneously. The band wrote the song in Stockholm during a series of live shows. The 14-track LP pushes beyond the self-titled debut album’s fuzzy, chaotic instrumentation, by exploring new moods, moments, lyrical narratives and sonic textures. It picks up from where the band previously left off, capturing the high energy of their sweat-soaked live sets via a range of frat-rock anthems and surfy punk melodies. The album was recorded at Studio Vansinnet. It was mixed by Joel Arwidsson and mastered by Michael Sållström. Vinyl was pressed in Addison, Texas via Yippee Ki Yay Records and distributed by Redeye Worldwide (Burger Records, Warp Records, Luaka Bop, Kill Rock Stars).
