Today, Google Play premiered a new documentary in the US about Merge Records. In candid, amusing interviews, Mac, Laura, Merge musicians, and friends of the label talk about its evolution and unwavering focus on its artists. Daniel Handler, author of the Lemony Snicket series of books (and sometime member of The Magnetic Fields), narrates the documentary.
Also, music fans in the US are invited to download 25 free Merge tracks, including five new and exclusive recordings from Superchunk, The Mountain Goats, Telekinesis, Saint Rich, and Hiss Golden Messenger.
Visit Google Play now to watch the documentary and download the tracks (US only).
Cho could be called “Queen of all Media,” conquering film, television, books, and theatre, with Grammy nominations, sold-out tours, and off-Broadway and TV shows under her belt. Equally as important are the causes she is passionate about. Margaret is widely recognized for her charitable work with gay rights and anti-bullying campaigns.
Tickets for the Saturday show are still on sale via Cat's Cradle, so don't wait! Limit 4 tickets per customer.
Also, on June 5th we'll celebrate 25 years with help from the Durham Bulls! Mac will throw out the ceremonial first pitch, and Heather from Mount Moriah will sing the national anthem. Learn more and get tickets here!
Wye Oak's Shriek was released yesterday to enthusiastic reviews worldwide, and features on Stereogum, Grantland, and more.
"Shriek is more of a continuation than a disruption: It’s a product of the catalytic bond between Mr. Stack, on synthesizers and drum programming, and Ms. Wasner, on electric bass." —NY Times
"Despite its electronic emphasis, Shriek bypasses conventional synthpop for more introspective, individual territory." —Wondering Sound
"There's no question Wasner could make these songs work as big guitar anthems, but as skeletal, textured electronic tunes they really let the nuance of both her songwriting and her voice shine through." —Under The Radar
The A.V. Club premiered Wye Oak's new video for "Glory" today, check it out!
