Rescuer will release their sophomore album, Anxiety Answering, on June 3rd via No Sleep Records. It was recorded with Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Joyce Manor). Check out a new song called "Out of Focus" on Brooklyn Vegan, featuring Andy from Frameworks and Madeline Nicholl. If you like what you hear, you can pre-order it.
“Out of Focus” is about growing apart from the people that you grew up with,” Marra adds. “My favorite thing about this song is that our friends Andy (of Frameworks) and Madeline Nicholl drove down from their wedding in Seattle and recorded some vocal parts on this song. It's like our weird wedding gift to them.”

Autopilot Off are offering free downloads of two new songs -- "Alcologic" and "When I Was Young" -- check the replies.
Here is a link to two new songs that we are releasing for free download. This has been an ambitious project for us, encompassing the past several months. We handled all aspects of production ourselves, working on weekends and whenever our collective personal schedules would permit. It has taken a long time to generate anything finished, but it has been worth it to us to do our songs our way. We hope you enjoy them, and hope that we can complete more in the future. -Chris J, Chris H, Rob, and Phil

Just woke up to a nice surprise from the ex so I’m headed right down to the office to prove to you guys without a doubt im not using and that those videos are old.

Spotify has redesigned their platform ... going with a darker theme and feel.
Now Spotify functions more like the familiar iTunes interface, where you have a home base of all your favorite jams. Except instead of keeping a copy of the actual sound files, it’s a cloud-based collection. This is a big step up from the Starred playlist, which was just a rearrangable list of songs that couldn’t be sorted. You can dump whole artist catalogs, albums, or friends’ playlists into Your Music, and then sort it all any way you want.

Emery have launched a crowdfunding campaign to help support their upcoming album, You Were Never Alone. It will be released this summer on BadChristian Music. The packages inlcude autographed merch, limited vinyl, personal fan experiences, and more. All packages come with downloads of two new, rough-version tracks from the upcoming album.
Something didn't feel right about someone else owning Emery's future recordings in perpetuity, especially when independent musicians are getting better opportunities to succeed every year. We want to own our music. We want to be able to sell it, give it away, re-record it in different ways, release vinyl, and do whatever we're inspired to do with it
