Surfer Blood -

Surfer Blood’s 3rd album 1000 Palms comes out May 12, 2015 on Joyful Noise Records. The band have performed on five continents, toured with heroes like The Pixies and Guided By Voices, played on the Jimmy Fallon Show, at Coachella and giant festivals throughout the world, while also occasionally plugging in their amps at all-ages house parties. Surfer Blood are also the cleanest and nicest band in existence!

Gringo Star -
ATL indie rockers Gringo Star have just announced the release of new 7­inch "Long Time Gone" b/w "World of Spin," out Oct. 17 on dizzybird records. A long­running collaboration between brothers Pete and Nick Furgiuele, Gringo Star has worked previously with producer Ben Allen (Animal Collective, Gnarls Barkley, Deerhunter), but for this new single—just as with acclaimed 2013 LP, Floating Out to See—the band took the DIY route, recording in Pete's basement home studio. Only this time, they went one further, handling every single instrument and vocal themselves. In typical, egalitarian Gringo Star fashion, Nick sings lead on A­side "Long Time Gone," while Pete handles vox on B­side "World of Spin."

The 7­inch single will be the debut release from the new Grand Rapids, Mich.­based dizzybird records. "Working with Gringo Star has been on my mind since I met them at CMJ a few years ago," says Brian Hoekstra, who co­founded the label with Nicole LaRue of Grand Rapids rock club The Pyramid Scheme. "Gringo Star has a unique, adventurous psychedelic rock & roll sound that's infectious and timeless—these two sides could've come out at any point in the last 50 years.
And now that dizzybird is releasing this 7­inch, we all get to dream together. Put out what you love, right? Seems like a good business model."

The new Gringo Star single will be released digitally through all major online retailers, and will be available on vinyl at select record stores, the band's shows and the dizzybird records website. The band plans to release their 4th studio album in the summer of 2015. They are going immediately into the studio following the 7" tour to work on material they have been demoing the last few months.
