  ODESZA  returns with its long-anticipated third album, a body of work filled with longing, nostalgia, hope and unity. Titled  A Moment Apart , these 16 tracks mark the next step in the evolution of production duo Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight, who have been making music together since their college days at Western Washington University.  They began their meteoric journey in 2012 with  Summer’s Gone , an album they completed near the end of their tenure at Western. It was followed by 2014’s  In Return , which debuted at the top of  Billboard ’s Dance/Electronic charts and featured gold single “Say My Name.” A remix of the track by RAC was later nominated for a Grammy in 2016.  In the course of that five-year span, they’ve gone from ground zero to selling out large arenas, all without the benefit of mainstream press or radio airplay. They’ve built their appeal through word of mouth and streaming, plus a unique live presentation featuring an 11-piece ensemble that includes a horn section and a marching-band drumline.

  “Quarter Past Midnight,” Bastille’s  new single, has taken the No. 1 spot at Alternative radio this week, according to Mediabase. The song is  Bastille’s  third single to top the chart – following “Pompeii” and “Good Grief.”  “Quarter Past Midnight”  is the band’s   fastest-climbing single ever, debuting at No. 12 in May and topping the chart in 11 short weeks. Global streams of the track already exceed 30 million.  The song is the lead single from  Bastille’s  forthcoming third album, the follow-up to 2016’s   Wild World  . It was recorded and self-produced in the band’s newly built studio – a former porn studio that now also houses frontman Dan Smith’s record label,   Best Laid Plans   (Rag N’Bone Man, Rationale). The five months  Bastille  spent in London recording new music was the longest the band has stayed in one place since releasing its RIAA certified Platinum debut album,  Bad Blood , five years ago. The four-piece – comprising Smith (who is the sole songwriter and co-produces all the tracks alongside Mark Crew), keyboardist Kyle Simmons, bassist/guitarist Will Farquarson and drummer Chris Wood – has played over 500 shows across six continents.

 If you love driving fast with the windows rolled down playing top 40 radio at full volume  and  you play in a band, you usually have one goal: get your songs out of your garage and into the worlds’ collective car speakers as soon as humanly possible. Lauren Mayberry, Iain Cook, and Martin Doherty certainly fit this bill. They unabashedly adore music of the wind-in-your-hair variety. And, of course, they play in a band, the Scottish synth pop group,  CHVRCHES.   And yet … Since emerging in 2013 with the glistening brightness of their breakthrough single, “Recover,”  CHVRCHES  have always projected an insularity, a subtle but unmistakable wariness about leaning into their obvious Hit Song of the Summer-writing potential. At their core, CHVRCHES are true blue Glaswegian punks. They’ve wanted to protect themselves, and protect that undercurrent of melancholy that gives depth to their sunniness.  BAND WEBSITE

Dirty Heads_SOC_Logo.jpg
 After two decades spent chiseling their unique, multi-genre infused sound,  Dirty Heads  have finally come into their own. Since the release of their 2008 debut Any Port in a Storm, the five-piece band -- Jared Watson (vocals), Dustin "Duddy B" Bushnell (vocals/guitar), Jon Olazabal (percussion), Matt Ochoa (drums) and David Foral (bass) -- has consistently experimented with their sunny style, leaning heavily on reggae fused with hip-hop cornerstones and scaling back for more acoustic fare, darting between extremes. But it's with their fifth and self-titled album that the group has felt fully confident in a body of work, ready to bring their unique style to the masses.  With a solid fan-base already in place,  Dirty Heads  are focusing their sights on something they've been edging towards for years: breaking the mainstream. "We want our fans to love it, because we love what we do and we want to keep doing it," says Watson. "But this album for me, I cannot poke a hole in any of it. From front to back, it's really so phenomenal. I'm so confident in it that I want it to take  Dirty Heads  from the band that we are in America, worldwide."  BAND WEBSITE

 In this age of quotidian nihilism, of pervasive and boundless jadedness, you might be forgiven for being taken aback when someone says to you: “I hope you’re happy.” It’d be easy to load that phrase with acerbic meaning, to interpret it foremost as coming from a place of spite and sarcasm. And nine times out of 10, you’d probably be right. But in the case of seminal musicians  Blue October , the statement is disarmingly sincere.  With a brand new record on the horizon, the boys from  Blue October  are putting their full weight behind this release. Justin has now been sober (and loving it!) for six years; the band is happy and enjoying life both on the road and at home with their families; and they want the best for everyone in their lives. Says Justin: “I Hope You’re Happy is about wishing your enemies well… anyone who’s touched my life, or I’ve touched your life—life’s so short, and I hope you’re happy.”  BAND WEBSITE

 Music gives a voice to those who need it when they need it the most. Our favorite artists say the difficult things out loud, so we don’t have to—but can learn how to.  By the same token,  lovelytheband  translate emotions, anxieties, and feelings into lush, layered, and lively indie pop anthems. When the band was founded by lead singer Mitchy Collins, guitarist Jordan Greenwald and drummer Sam Price in 2017, the trio maintain a lasting connection to listeners by holding nothing back.  As they round out 2018 on a headlining tour and hitting the stages of Lollapalooza, the Billboard Hot 100 Festival, and more, lovelytheband’s voice will only get dramatically louder. It might just make crowds feel better too…  “I hope when you listen to it, you can find some solace or reassurance,” Mitchy leaves off. “Maybe you didn’t know how to communicate something aloud, and it helps for us to talk about it. Hearing it might inspire you to make a move. Music moved me and gave me a little hope as a kid. I hope you can take away something from this in the same way my favorite records helped me. That would be my biggest goal with  lovelytheband .”  BAND WEBSITE

Born in Virginia, Just Loud’s adolescence largely revolved around his small country church. His rebellious and inquisitive nature, however, led him to be cast away from the church at 15 – leading him to pursue music. With an impressive range and sense of introspection, Just Loud is making personal discoveries in real time — expressing himself, finding his voice, sharing his pain and glories — through his compelling and impactful art.  

Just Loud’s infectious, funky new song “Soul Train” feat. Debbie Harry of Blondie is out now. In the new video, Just Loudand Debbie engage in a high speed chase brought to life through ‘70s-inspired animation with a modern edge. The song’s glittery rhythm line, palm-muted guitar and irresistible chorus are the first taste of Just Loud’s newly announced self-titled debut album out November 16th via Five Seven Music.
