Melbourne’s King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard are a once-in-a-generation group playing a heady combination of psychedelia, prog rock, freakbeat, jazz, heavy metal and Krautrock at a breathless punk pace. Today they introduce Murder of the Universe, to be released June 23rd via ATO Records. A concept album to end all concepts, Murder Of The Universe is a face-melting musical assault concerned with the downfall of man and the death of the planet.
Watch the band perform “Lord of Lightning” on CONAN:
Lit by thunderclaps and lightning, MOTU inhabits a sonic landscape of death, decay, ossification, fossilization, rebirth. It is a place occupied by wandering shape-shifting beasts, bleeding skies, pools of blood, great fires and mushroom clouds; a planet rent asunder by conflict.
Like in the band’s frenzied live show, snippets of their breakthrough records I’m In Your Mind Fuzz and Nonagon Infinity resurface throughout this album to haunt their latest sound. Currently on their 2017 nationwide US tour and headlining their biggest rooms to date, the band will be taking their live experience to TV for their worldwide television debut on Conan April 17th.
“We’re living in dystopian times that are pretty scary and it’s hard not to reflect that in our music,” says front man Stu Mackenzie. “It’s almost unavoidable. Some scientists predict that the downfall of humanity is just as likely to come at the hands of Artificial Intelligence, as it is war or viruses or climate change. But these are fascinating times too. Human beings are visual creatures – vision is our primary instinct, and this is very much a visual, descriptive, bleak record. While the tone is definitely apocalyptic, it is not necessarily purely a mirror of the current state of humanity. It’s about new non-linear narratives.”

Melbourne, Australia’s Slow Dancer – the moniker of singer, songwriter and multi- instrumentalist Simon Okely – recently announced that he signed with ATO Records and made his U.S. live debut (scroll to the bottom for a full list of tour dates). Today the social worker by day, soulful songbird by night reveals the details of his forthcoming sophomore album, In A Mood, out June 9th on ATO Records.

“[‘Don’t Believe’ is a] soulful serenade to a detached lover, it blends laid-back drums, soft guitar and fuzzy, plucky synthesizers to make a smooth ’70s sound.” – NPR
“silky smooth…spindly and soulful” – Stereogum
“Okely’s soulful, Stax-inflected vocals and stinging guitar work stand out in any crowd.” – Billboard
“It’s all happening for fresh-faced indie-R&B upstart Slow Dancer, so you’d better go ahead and get acquainted with his music now” – Paste
“This is old-school, baby-making stuff.” – WFUV
“”an album that seeps into your consciousness…In a Mood creates a blanket of sound, each layer blending smoothly, a sonic gradient of guitar, organ, strings, bass, and vocals.” – Noisey
Slow Dancer has also announced a North American tour in support of In A Mood. His incredible live show will pull you in with his golden guitar licks, emotive vocals and grooving melodies – watch his live video for “Don’t Believe” via Paste and “It Goes On” via Stereogum now to see for yourself.

Simon Okely is lost in time. Or at least, his songs as Slow Dancer sound that way: warm, near-whispered indie-rock love letters to the 60s and 70s rhythm and blues records his parents would play on family car rides down Australia’s winding west coast, heavy on nostalgia and even heavier on imagination. His 2014 debut Surrender was a melt-your-heart, Fleetwood Mac-with-Neil Young licks “pop postcard” from another time, another place. Now returning in 2017 with In A Mood, Okely is aiming even higher, featuring a “more expansive, more ambitious” sound that’s “less about the stories we tell ourselves when in love and more about the moods that can come creeping over a relationship” at any time. It’s no wonder his music is already striking a chord with fans of Mac DeMarco, Tobias Jesso Jr, Connan Mockasin and more, with his latest single accumulating over a quarter of a million Spotify streams in just a few weeks.
Okely grew up near West Australian city Perth, in a “tiny farming town” where, as a small kid, he would bring a toy ukulele to church every Sunday and strum along as though he was playing the hymns. After growing up and learning the guitar aged nine, he inherited his grandmother’s piano and gradually became fascinated with the intense, intimate folk of Nick Drake, rhythm and blues vanguards Otis Redding and Wilson Pickett and his parents’ favourite Van Morrison.
After moving to Melbourne in 2013, Okely began writing as Slow Dancer in 2014, naming the project after a lyric from a song on Surrender that was “essentially an instruction manual for slow dancing with someone who is experiencing apathy.” Key to the Slow Dancer sound is the environment Okely writes and records in: alone, entirely at night, in a bedroom that “somehow crams in a drum kit, a piano, some guitars, and a bed,” he laughs. “This has always been my journal, my love letter to the music I love. My concentration will always be on making the music that pleases me, and if it pleases other people too, that’s also great. It’s been a wonderful ride so far.”
Simon Okely is lost in time. You should get lost in time with him.
Watch Nick Hakim’s “Bet She Looks Like You” Official Video + Listen to title track ‘Green Twins’ from debut out 5/19
Nick Hakim has released his official video for “Bet She Looks Like You”, the first single off of his debut album Green Twins, out May 19. He’s also shared the title track from the record, which Noisey calls “a soulful, psychedelic experience”. Watch the clips now, and pre-order Green Twins at the Official Store or via iTunes, Amazon, Bandcamp, and more:
“The most beautiful soul we ever did hear expressed. If your heart has been feeling cold lately, this tune will warm it right up as Hakim’s raspy vocals reverb through the speakers.” – NYLON
“A hazy, deeply felt bit of modern soul” – Stereogum
“A smoky love ballad that is textbook Hakim: a bone-bare slow-wind of a song that doesn’t beg for one’s attention so much as it intoxicates the senses with knowing assurance. It’s a heartbreaker, for sure” – The FADER
“Hakim’s sounds are deep and soulful, but touches of jarring reverb and eerie synths throw his work into a uniquely beautiful state of unbalance.” – Washington Post
Currently on the road, Nick and his band stopped in Austin during SXSW where they played several showcases. Hakim filmed a pared down version of his song “The Want” from Green Twins as part of NPR Music’s South X Lullaby series. Watch the performance here and see Nick live on tour (see tour dates below):

New Hurray For The Riff Raff Album ‘The Navigator’ out Now! Watch Daily Show Performance + Read NY Times Feature
On Hurray for the Riff Raff’s new album The Navigator (out March 10 on ATO Records), Alynda Segarra tells an interwoven, cinematic story of a wandering soul at a crossroads of identity and ancestral weight. It finds a street kid named Navita traversing a perpetually burning city in search of herself. The Navigator is a thrilling call to arms that could not come at a more crucial time. It also finds Hurray for the Riff Raff at its own musical intersection, delving deep into the worlds of Latin rhythms, searing rock, and incisive ballads.
“The Navigator” is now available at the band’s official store, iTunes and Amazon.
Read The New York Times‘ in-depth profile of Alynda HERE, and watch Alynda’s interview and performance on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah below. Tune in to CBS This Morning on March 11 and CONAN on March 13 to catch her performing new songs from The Navigator:
Watch Alynda’s interview and performance with Democracy Now‘s Amy Goodman:
The Navigator was produced by Paul Butler (Michael Kiwanuka, St. Paul and The Broken Bones, Devendra Banhart) and recorded at Electric Lady Studios in NYC and Panoramic House in California. The album features percussionists Juan-Carlos Chaurand, Gregory Rogove (Rodrigo Amarante), a trio of Bomba drummers, and Doo Wop singers from New Jersey.
Says Alynda: This is dedicated to the water protectors of Standing Rock – thank you for your bravery and giving us hope. Also, to the people of Peñuelas, Puerto Rico, who are demanding an end to the AES dumping of coal ash which leads to water contamination – we are with you.
All over the world there are heroes, who, despite suffering generations of oppression, are protecting the land and the future of our humanity. Rican Beach is a fictional place, but it was written with my ancestors in mind. It’s time to call on yours and to always remember: this land was made for you and me.
Hurray for the Riff Raff will tour extensively in 2017 and have announced a spring tour in support of the album, full list of dates below.

Benjamin Booker has shared the newest track from his new album ‘Witness,’ out June 2nd on ATO Records. Listen to “Right On You” via The FADER, which calls it “a staticky, high-tempo ballad that packs a punch”. Download “Right On You” instantly when you pre-order Witness.
Previously, Booker shared the title track ‘Witness’ featuring a guest vocal by Mavis Staples. Pre-order the new album “Witness” and instantly download the title track, or stream it now via Spotify or Apple Music: http://smarturl.it/witness-preorder
“The New Orleans-based songwriter — who’s favored a sound like the blues, soul and rock ‘n’ roll mixed with gasoline and a lit cigarette — leans into more explicitly gospel territory here, letting his strepitous guitar take a backseat to an upright-piano melody and choral harmonies.”
On ‘Witness,’ Booker has created his most ambitious work yet by digging deep into his passion for eccentric soul, R&B, and blues – drawing on everything from William Onyeabor’s 70s African psych-rock to Freddie Gibbs and Pusha T, while never straying too far from the garage-punk intensity that made his self-titled 2014 debut such a creative breakthrough. The album’s ten new, original tracks were all written by Booker, produced by Sam Cohen (Kevin Morby), and mixed by Shawn Everett (Alabama Shakes).
1. Right On You
3. Witness (feat. Mavis Staples)
4. The Slow Drag Under
5. Truth Is Heavy

With over twenty years and ten albums to their name, Texas alt-country stalwarts Old 97’s are excited to release their eleventh LP, Graveyard Whistling out today. The album was recorded in the same Tornillo, Texas studio as their major label debut back in 1996, Too Far To Care. “[Too Far To Care] is the sound that best defined us,” says Rhett Miller, the lead singer and primary songwriter. “It was a really magical time, and we go back to it a lot in our collective memory.” And so when it came time for the band—which still consists of the same four members: Miller, guitarist Ken Bethea, bassist Murry Hammond, and drummer Philip Peeples—to record their newest endeavor, producer Vance Powell brought up the idea of returning to Tornillo. “We knew instantly that it was the perfect move,” says Miller.

While there are new collaborators on Graveyard Whistling, including Nicole Atkins and Butch Walker, there aren’t more than a handful of bands in history who can claim to have an intact, unchanged line-up as they approach twenty-five years together. There is, of course, no real blueprint or rulebook for sustaining the kind of chemistry that Miller, Bethea, Hammond, and Peeples enjoy.
“I think our longevity can be attributed primarily to our friendship and ability to overcome those moments when egos want to overtake and obliterate everything in their path,” says Miller. “We experienced the hype of the old business model, with all of its excess and idiocy, and also the deconstruction of that model and the advent of the new world, and been able to maintain a fundamental love for each other.

ATO Records is excited to announce that it will be hosting its 2017 Official SXSW Showcase on Thursday March 16, 2017 at Cedar Street Courtyard in Austin, TX from 8PM – 2 AM. Five ATO artists with new album releases in 2017 will be performing.
Hurray For The Riff Raff
SXSW Music and Platinum Badges receive primary admission while artist and Festival Wristbands, Film and Interactive Badges receive secondary admission. Single admission as capacity allows.
Benjamin Booker‘s anticipated second album will be released Summer 2017. Booker returns to SXSW after playing the festival in 2014 in support of his acclaimed debut which The New York Times described as “a raucous, unruly mix of punk, blues rock and soul.”
Hurray For The Riff Raff‘s new album The Navigator, out March 10th, finds the band at a musical intersection, delving deep into the worlds of Latin rhythms, searing rock, and incisive ballads. Watch the video for “Hungry Ghost,” the band’s new single that the FADER calls “more than a rock song – it’s an anthem” HERE.
Chicano Batman‘s new songs have been applauded as “blistering, politically-charged throwback” and “breezy Brazilian Tropicalía mixed with early ’70s psychedelic soul and romantic pop,” by Noisey. The band’s highly-anticipated ATO Records debut Freedom is Free is out this Friday. Watch their new video for “Friendship (Is A Small Boat In A Storm)” HERE.
New York City’s Nick Hakim will be releasing his debut album, Green Twins, on May 19th. Hakim’s flavor of “achingly beautiful soul music” (The FADER), can be found in his new single “Bet She Looks Like You” which showcases his dynamic and powerful voice as well as his excitingly experimental approach to neo soul. Listen to it HERE.
Melbourne, Australia’s Slow Dancer, the moniker for singer-songwriter Simon Okely, has just released its new single “Don’t Believe” with a new album due Summer 2017.
NPR Music describes his sound as “a delicate blend of folk and indie R&B, largely inspired by classic blues from the ’60’s and ’70s.” Slow Dancer grew up listening to his parents’ Otis Redding and Wilson Pickett records before discovering the haunting sounds of José González and Nick Drake. Watch the official video for “Don’t Believe” HERE.

Get “Freedom Is Free”: Official Store | iTunes | Amazon
Chicano Batman came out of L.A., four young men in vintage formalwear, playing songs that blended Brazilian Tropicalía with early ’70s psychedelic soul and the romantic pop of bands like Los Ángeles Negros. It was an immediately addictive sonic brew, and their reputation grew fast. Now, they’re making their boldest statement yet with Freedom Is Free.
Watch the band’s KEXP session:

Freedom Is Free reflects Chicano Batman’s decision to foreground the soul and R&B elements of their sound. To achieve their ambitious sonic goals, the quartet worked with producer Leon Michels (El Michels Affair, The Arcs) in his Diamond Mine Recording studio in Long Island City, NY. Michels, a veteran in the New York soul scene, has performed in Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings, The Black Keys and The Menahan Street Band. In addition to tracking the album to analog tape, Michels contributed keyboards and his trademark horn arrangements (he’s been sampled by Jay-Z and Ghostface Killah). The partnership between Michels and Chicano Batman truly captures the band’s live energy and brings their aesthetic goals to life.

In a recent live review, the Philly Voice said, “With the precision of master harmonizers, the [sisters] delivered rich vocals one song after another to an adoring World Café Live crowd. Super catchy ‘SOS (Overboard)’ was eaten up to its candy core by everyone in attendance as were the rest of the audio confections they served up.” The band is touring in support of its new album, I’m Alone, No You’re Not, which spent two weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Albums chart and was voted as one of 2016’s top albums by NPR listeners.
“The members of Portland trio Joseph — sisters Natalie, Allison and Meegan Closner — blend their voices in the eerily close way that only siblings seem able to accomplish,” said NPR, praising their mix of “swoony delicacy and punchy anthems.” PAPER praised Joseph’s “dark folk-pop that will make you cry (in the best, most cathartic way possible).” BUST observed, “Joseph has certainly arrived, and this is one sister act whose talent will stand the test of time.”
