Alas, the stellar new DEAD LP from Edinburgh's Young Fathers is out worldwide via Anticon (US/Canada) & Big Dada (UK/Europe), as well as in Japan via Tugboat Records. The 11-song beauty is available on vinyl, CD, and classic MP3 formats. DEAD has already received an overwhelmingly great intial response, including praise from BBC Radio and a handful of excellent reviews from some top critics.
Grizzly Bear's 2013 track "Will Calls" has gotten the remix treatment from anticon's own in-house Will, Baths. Turning the slow, quiet demo into something lively and danceable, Will manages to preserve the raw emotion of Ed Droste's vocals, while surrounding it with a hazy, new, signature Baths world. Listen to it now on SoundCloud.
Baths hits the road again this spring, touring with his anticon labelmates Young Fathers (who are touring North America for the first time!). Make sure you don't miss this pairing of awe-inspiring live shows—find tickets and more info over on our events page!
Baths' Obsidian is available on vinyl/CD/MP3 at our webshop.
Pigeons & Planes have premiered the full album stream of Young Fathers' DEAD LP, a week ahead of its release. They pair it with some nice words of their own, declaring that the album "follows proudly in the Anticon tradition of combining challenging sounds"—and now you can hear it for yourself. Listen above.
"Get Up" has been making its way through the music waves, being recognized as the most infectious of the tracks released off the DEAD LP so far. The album's release is just a few days away, but Young Fathers have released the video and digital single for the track to hype you up for the finish line. Watch the video above, premiered by Noisey.
Young Fathers are also headed off on a huge tour soon through the UK, EU, and for the first time, North America, where they'll be supporting Baths across two months of dates. Chances are they'll be heading through your vicinity, and their powerful live show is not to miss—peep the tickets and extra info on our events page!
The "Get Up" digital single is available now at our webshop and iTunes, and features two exclusive B-sides not included elsewhere. And preorder DEAD on vinyl/CD at our webshop, or digitally on iTunes, and receive an instant download of lead single "Low".
