We are super excited that Camp Cope's sophomore album "How to Socialise & Make Friends" is officially out everywhere today! We couldn’t be more proud to work with such an important and talented group of people.
(Camp Cope's) songs have an unrestrained gusto that will empower more women to tell their own stories... They resonate because they are so real." - The Guardian
"For some people (How to Socialise & Make Friends) will be a political, feminist record and for others this will be a record that speaks of their day-to-day lives. I think the difference there shows who this music is really for." - Gold Flake Paint
It’s been years since Young Statues’ last release, and it’s safe to say plenty has changed. The band’s 2014 sophomore release The Flatlands Are Your Friend took the band’s sound into the somber territory tread before by bands like the National, and before that, their self titled debut & follow-up EP Age Isn’t Ours offered varied moments of genre-defining musicianship. On the new 7” & digital EP Amarillo, the band’s refreshingly upbeat blend of indie-pop and alt-country is elevated to new heights by stellar production and musicianship. The wailing of the harmonica leads the bridge in “Somebody Else” and the perfectly filling harmonies on the b-side “Dive” are just two of the many highlights offered up on the band’s latest.
American Pleasure ClubA Whole Fucking Lifetime of This is out now.

This is Sam Ray's best album as Teen Suicide or Julia Brown or Ricky Eat Acid or anything else, and it's the best album of the young year so far by some distance... It's further evidence that Ray has a rare gift—present in his ambient work too—for making life's ugly moments beautiful and its beautiful moments limitless. - Noisey
"A Whole Fucking Lifetime Of This" is one of the absolute best albums of this young year so far, one you should hear as soon as possible. - Stereogum
