Cloakroom LP Update, new lathe cut single and 7″ coming soon


Due to the lengthy quest for a fully analog final product and some unforeseen production circumstances, Cloakroom’s long awaited debut beast of a double LP is going to be delayed until early next year.

That’s way too long to go without new Cloakroom material so in the meantime, we are offering a brand new lathe-cut 7″ limited to 65 copies featuring the new song ‘Lossed Over’ and a screen printed b-side. The 7″ is available only from the band starting tomorrow on their tour with Whirr.

We are also pressing a brand new 7″ featuring a new song and a special b-side, due out later this year. Details on that coming within the next couple weeks.

Modern Baseball – “Pothole” Music Video


Last week Entertainment Weekly premiered the new Modern Baseball video, “Pothole” for us. Check out what they had to say about the song, and check out the video below.

Philly’s Modern Baseball is at the leading edge of this movement, and may be the most accessible to pop fans who don’t know or don’t care that there’s even an emo revival happening. Their latest single, “Pothole,” foregoes the pop-punk tendencies that define much of their material in favor of lightly fingerpicked acoustic guitar and nakedly raw vocals, to subtly powerful effect.

Hostage Calm – Die On Stage Pre-Orders / New Song

You can now pre-order the awesome new Hostage Calm LP titled “Die On Stage” on CD or vinyl. Our friends at Noisey recently premiered a new track from the album called “A Thousand Miles Away” which you can hear below, as well as a quick blurb from Noisey.

We saw the band’s growing Britpop sensibilities on their first single, “Your Head/Your Heart,” and on “A Thousand Miles Away From Here,” the song channels, at different moments, late 90s post-hardcore like Rival Schools and maybe even some mainstream pop, yet still remains one of the most focused and direct tracks the band has ever written.

Make sure to pre-order a copy of Die On Stage and check out the new Hostage Calm apparel.
