Dear Siluh besties,
welcome to our little news compilation, this time exclusively brought to you from Los Angeles / CA. We are acclimatising and preparing for next week’s SXSW Festival in Austin / TX. Hope you like our new communique!
|GARY new album / new single
March 9th, 2012 marks the release of Gary’s third full length studio album “Hey Turtle, Stop Running!”. Following “Love Is Love” the second single will be “Twisted Beds”. We’ve uploaded it on Soundcloud, so you can tune in and get a feel for this timeless album right from slacker kingdom. The record will be in stores at the end of the week. Or your may conveniently surf to our weboutique to grab it.
Apart from two special album release shows in Munich (March 23rd / Laab) and Vienna (March 24th / Aparat / FB Event) the Garyband will be touring extensively from April 11th onward. Check out all the tourdates at the end of this newsletter!
|LUISE POP new single “Fast & Frightening”
Our cutie pies Luise Pop got invited by German pop-culture magazine Intro to contribute a song to their 20th anniversary celebrations. Due to their strong riot girl socialisation L7’s “Fast and Frightening” was the band’s song of choice and was masterfully translated into their very own surf noir style of sound. Additionally, band leader Vera Kropf edited a charming found footage video of the song.
“Fast and Frightening” is available via itunes or you can stream the piece via Soundcloud and Spotify. Further, an exclusive collector’s edition 7inch can be purchased via the Intro webshop.
Check out Luise Pop’s tourdates below to catch them on the road, starting this week!
|SWEET SWEET MOON confirmed for Europavox
Sweet Sweet Moon is still in the studio finishing and tweaking his latest recordings, so be ready for some new songs very soon! In the meantime he got invited to play at the Europavox Festival (May 25th to 27th) in the lovely city of Clermont-Ferrand in France. We hope his French will be as fantastiqe as is his youtube hit. Seems the song will be breaking 200.000 plays any minute! We certainly love to report 100.000 more clicks every time we release our newsletter!
In addition, Mr. Moon will be touring with Dust Covered Carpet (starting at the end of March) and later with Gary. So make sure to scroll down a little to see all tourdates! By the way, his suitcase will be packed with these brand new supersweet merchandise items, also available via the Siluh weboutique.
