Pitchfork Premieres Holopaw Single  

Posted at 9:34 am

Pitchfork premiered Holopaw’s “Golden Sparklers” today. Thanks so much to Larry, Jenn & all at P4K. How wonderful.

“Golden Sparklers” is the leadoff single from Academy Songs, Volume I (release: 1/15). Set in the close quarters of an all-boys preparatory academy and the world beyond its “ivied walls,” Holopaw have crafted a truly magnificent album. To note: the LP & CD covers are two different photographs.

“Golden Sparklers” is also the A-Side of the very limited, hand-numbered “Golden Sparklers” b/w “Yearling’s Darlings” 7″ (release: 11/13). Our dear friends at Wild Kindness Records will aid in the release of the 7″. The full-length will be solely a Misra endeavor.

>> Pre-order both here. Thanks so much for supporting independent art & music!

Pitchfork Give Black Swans a Wonderful Review!  

Posted at 10:56 pm

Thanks so much to Mark Richardson, Stephen Deusner, and all at Pitchfork for the wonderful review of The Black Swans’ Occasion for Song. It went up today and it’s just so thoughtful. We couldn’t be more pleased.

“For all its grave intimations, Occasion For Song exhibits a true joy in creating and playing music, in finding the right notes and the right words. It’s a complex, even contradictory record, not just the Black Swans’ best but one of the most incisive and moving mediations on life and the loss of it in recent memory.”
