Everybody’s A Good Dog is the first true realization of Shaun Fleming’s Little Shop of Horrors -meets-Aladdin Sane vision, recorded in a proper studio with an assortment of guest artists, horn section, and string ensemble (all firsts for Fleming). The resulting 11 tracks are a sky-scraping sound kaleidoscope, touched with euphoric instrumentation and dark lyricism. Check out the frist single “Everyday” which premiered on Streogum below. +

Landscape Dream is Abram Shook’s follow-up to 2014’s Sun Marquee, an album Texas Monthly called "…compelling, weird, and lovely." Applying what he learned through writing and recording Sun Marquee, Landscape Dream demonstrates how much Shook’s songwriting and production acumen has sharpened over the past year. You can check out the first single “Understood” which Stereogum calls “…dreamy…refreshing…” here, and below you can listen to album standout “Perfect”. +

To celebrate their new album Infinite House, Ava Luna premiered the record’s first single “Billz”, which you can check out via Pitchfork or stream below. The band has two release shows planned in their native Brooklyn and will be spending most of the spring and summer on the road. Details for those tours will be announced shortly. +

Native Texan Travis Johnson has lived, worked, and created in the ever evolving Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn for over a decade. His band Grooms practiced, and recorded at Brooklyn’s Death By Audio for seven years (first as Muggabears, then as Grooms) before they were forced out of their spiritual and literal home. A little over a year before, with the band’s income not providing enough money to support any of it’s members, bass player and co-writer Emily Ambruso went on hiatus from the band, leaving Johnson as the only original member. Despite these unfortunate blows, Johnson soldiered on, soon recruiting Jay Heiselmann on bass, and actor/comedian Steve Levine on drums. +
