There's no real reason to post this other than the fact that it's kinda music related, definitely alcohol related, and the brewery (and label) are right down the road from me. Deschutes has named a new IPA after Rise Records. Yes, this is news, no I don't care if you don't like it.
Due to legal issues, Future Ghosts have had to change their name. The band's new name is Unifier. With that being said, the band has a new song to go with their fresh start. You can watch the band's studio video for their new song "Shadows" in the replies along with a message from the guys about the name change. Lastly, you can download the new single and the band's old EP for free on here and here respectively.
Palma Violets will release their debut album 180 on February 25th via Rough Trade.

Sweatshirt Weather have been hard at work on a new EP. Translations includes a few acoustic renditions, a couple new songs, and a cover of Something Corporate's "Watch The Sky." Today, we are excited to premiere one of the new songs: "Sunrise." Head to their AP.net Profile or the replies to hear it. Translations drops January 14th and was entirely produced, engineered, and mastered by the band.
Just a reminder to all bands and industry folk - we're getting closer to launching our EOTY feature and we're still continuing to build up our "end of the year" database, as we've done each year, and we want your lists! If you're in a band, work for a label, or are involved in the industry - we want to feature your favorite albums of the year in our end of the year brouhaha. We've made it super simple again this year: just email us your lists here and make sure you make it clear who the list is for (ie: if you're in a band - is it a band list, or is it an individual band member list?). We'll compile everything together, and post it all around the new year.
