Arc Iris gave us an exciting end to a long week last Friday with the surprise release of their new EP, Friends and Lovers. The newest addition to the Arc Iris discography, Friends and Lovers is available everywhere you normally stream your favorite pop, country, trap? (we don’t judge) songs.
If you like music in general, we think you’ll like this one! Just click here!
Cross Record, aka Emily Cross, releases her new single The Fly today off her upcoming self-titled album (out August 2nd) and we hope you’re as excited as we are! The Fly serves as the successor for Cross’ previous single, PSYOL My Castle. Both songs foreshadow the “voyage through the psyche” that the album is bound to take its listeners on, just ask Stereogum!
You can listen to the song below and pre-order Cross Record here
With the release of The Fly comes the announcement of Cross Record’s North American Tour, as well as a series of Living Funerals that Emily will perform herself. Tour & Living Funeral dates are listed below.

This week, New Zealand’s Tiny Ruins have released a new song, Holograms. Their new album Olympic Girls is out worldwide on February 1st.
“Tiny Ruins, which originated as frontwoman Hollie Fullbrook’s solo songwriting project, has always been a nesting place for spare, delicate melodies and verses full of natural imagery and big ideas. But there’s nothing delicate about this latest batch of singles: ‘Olympic Girls’ is warm, full and unexpected—a lively flute finds a home next to electric guitar; Fullbrook’s smooth alto sighs along with clashing cymbals. ‘Holograms’ is just as beautiful, and it’s one of Fullbrook’s biggest ideas yet.” - Paste
One day ahead of the release of Arc Iris’ Ba Da Bing debut Icon of Ego, we’re pleased to share a new video for ‘If You Can See,’ their “optimistic and ebullient” track about everyone making it through together.
The video features a large cast of characters from Arc Iris’ native Providence, RI, singing along to the track. Read more about it at NPR Music.
Arc Iris has a huge US tour coming up this fall as well, here are dates:
Arc Iris' single, "Turn It Up", just premiered on Brooklyn Vegan, praised for touching on all sorts of versions of pop, funk, and indie without losing its charm to its quirk. Their tour includes a release show in Brooklyn, this fall at Rough Trade, Nov. 11.
Ba Da Bing is thrilled to be working with Rhode Island based trio Arc Iris to release their third record "Icon Of Ego," out October 12th. The first single '$GNMS' premiered on Clash Magazine last week and is now available to stream everywhere! This track is best described as a sci-fi reinvention of 'Money Gnomes', the opening song of their 2014 self-titled album, and an indicator of how the band's sound has shifted towards the creatively dramatic.

We're pleased to present celebrated New Zealand guitar legend Roy Montgomery's new record Suffuse, out August 17. It's his latest since 2016's tremendous, highly-acclaimed release R M H Q, which Pitchfork likened to a "shadowy dream". For Suffuse, Montgomery enlists guest vocalists Haley Fohr (Circuit des Yeux), Jessica Larrabee (She Keeps Bees), Katie Von Schleicher, Clementine and Valentine Nixon (Purple Pilgrims), Julianna Barwick, and Liz Harris (Grouper) to sing over his compositions.
The LP/CD is available to pre-order now via Grapefruit Record Club, in addition to the Special Edition, which includes the bonus "Refuse" LP, limited to a run of only 70 copies!

Announcing Hamish Kilgour’s new album, Finklestein!
Hamish was generous enough to let us work with him on his first solo album, and apparently, we didn’t piss him off in any awful way, because we are back four years later with his second! Like before, I don’t know if “solo” is really appropriate, since he has a stageload of people assisting him here, but I would guess he had say on final cut, which is no doubt highly valued when you are most known for being in a band you share with your sibling (that band is The Clean, ok? The Clean. Ever heard of The Clean???) Finklestein takes Hamish’s mad creative instincts and lets it loose over a lightly themed album, based on a fairytale he conceived for his son. While Finklestein is the name of the imaginary kingdom he invented, the record Finklestein sounds like this entire world showed up to play an instrument.
Here are two songs for you from this glorious and colorful release, just to give a sense of the breadth:
For those early birds who love their Hamish, there’s a Finklestein Special Edition, which includes Funklestein, an entire second LP of music created to complement it’s cohort release. This bonus LP, limited to 50 copies and vinyl only, provides two psychedelirious side long tracks (Side A: “Reaction” & Side B: “Action”) using the same musicians and studio as Finklestein proper.
Today, Katie Von Schleicher shared "Glad To Be Here" and announces a new 7" out on May 4th. She'll be at SXSW (and is one of NPR's Austin 100) and will do some US tours with Mitski and Ought, as well as a long headlining UK/Europe tour. This means you've got lots of chances to catch her out there, and she'll get progressively more tired, so maybe try to see her by April, or mid-May, or at the very latest early June.
