Cat#: TE339-2 | | CD | The End Dead Letter Circus are unlike any rock band to emerge in years. Part of the beauty of the soaring, sing-a-long choruses, chiming atmospherics and delay soaked tones of Dead Letter Circus is their escape from easy classification via labels or scenes. Debut album This is the Warning hit #2 on the national ARIA charts and spawned 6 radio singles, with 2 commercial crossover hits One Step and Cage being added to major networks, and the album being certified Gold.
The Catalyst Fire is the follow up to Dead Letter Circus’ hit debut album and will be out on Tuesday, Oct. 29th via The End Records/UNFD. Dead Letter Circus have spent the last nine months writing and recording their sophomore album with long-term producer and collaborator Forrester Savell. Comprising of 11 tracks, the album marks a clear progression of the traditional DLC sound, while retaining the energy and intensity they are known and loved for.
ARTHUR CHANNEL – Arthur Channel (digi)
Release Date: 10-15-13 | Price: $7.99
Cat#: TE321-2 | | CD | The End
Arthur Channel is the melding of Jack Irons (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pearl Jam, Eleven, The Wallflowers), Greg Richling (The Wallflowers, Fiona Apple), and Alain Johannes (Queens Of The Stone Age, Eleven) and newcomer singer/songwriter Jon Greene. They call themselves Arthur Channel. “Why?” you ask…..Well, for one thing, don’t ask the band members. They’re not sure either. Yet one thing they do know is that every arrow pointed them toward finding each other.
The name arrived out of nowhere, much like unknown, yet masterful singer/songwriter/guitarist Jon Greene appeared in the lives of drummer Jack Irons and bass player Greg Richling. Shortly after moving to Los Angeles, Jon acquired Jack’s contact info and sent him a three song demo; coincidentally, Jack and Greg had been discussing finding an unknown singer/songwriter to start working with. Greg says, ‘I bet Jon spied us from the tree tops. He knew no matter how good the bass and drums were sounding, it was a lonely affair.’
OKTA LOGUE – Tales Of Transit City
Release Date: 09-30-13 | Price: $7.99
Cat#: TE333-2 | | CD | The End
Okta Logue unceasingly present themselves as the embodiment of an ultra-cool group of dudes, that just love to do nothing but to make highways unsafe with their dark-red vintage band-van and to get out their guitars at romantic festivals far away from rocking rings and parks. They have fallen ‘out of time’, as spectators like to express. In doing so, and this is extremely crucial, the band understands how to connect an ‘old’ sign with a ‘new’ one, how to immediately cross a positive particle with a negative one, so to speak. They understand how to counter and how to neutralize the effect and thereby still keep the thrill upright.
‘Tales Of Transit City’ is a damn good second album that casually and sexily frees itself from the vintage-trap and retro-drawer, that beats itself with its own weapons and which takes a decisive step towards pop without losing itself in clichés, pomp or kitsch. A serenity, sovereignty and candidness born of this freedom draws our attention in every song and in every note of ‘Tales Of Transit City’ – much stronger, but also much more self-evident as on their debut ‘Ballads Of A Burden’.
