Teen Suicide 'honeybee table at the butterfly feast' is out today!

Early praise for Teen Suicide and honeybee table at the butterfly feast:

"...what holds honeybee table at the butterfly feast together is the friction between its disparate sounds and ideas, those contradictions in close quarters. And within those contradictions is an idea that Ray has been driving at for most of his career." - The FADER

"Teen Suicide has never been an easy project to pigeonhole, and that’s truer than ever on the mercurial honeybee table, as Ray embraces his—and all of our—everyday battles to find fulfillment, as well as an expansive sonic palette, with wide-open arms." - Paste Magazine

Teen Suicide have released their long-awaited new album, honeybee table at the butterfly feast, out today from Run For Cover Records. Having already drawn early attention from the likes of Stereogum, The FADER, BrooklynVegan, Paste Magazine, and more, the album offers some of the band's most ambitious and varied work to date--even for a group who have always been known to keep listeners on their toes. Teen Suicide mastermind, Sam Ray, wrote the sixteen song opus while working through serious health issues and a very real sense of urgency permeates the album's wide range of sounds and ideas.

Since forming Teen Suicide in 2009, Ray has led the project through endless sonic shifts and evolutions, always leaving listeners on their toes but completely along for the ride. From scrappy lo-fi punk to bombastic post-rock to ambient soundscapes, the most consistent thing about Teen Suicide--and its various permutations, like American Pleasure Club--is Ray's intense creativity and the deeply compelling songwriting that results from it. honeybee table at the butterfly feast was written over the course of several years while Ray struggled with a mysterious respiratory illness, which made it very difficult to perform and record—and eventually led to a near death experience. Yet the album is still vibrant and wide-ranging with Ray's artistic restlessness resulting in a genre-spanning journey that finds the songwriter beginning to unpack a new phase of life.

Teen Suicide are celebrating the release of honeybee table at the butterfly feast with two headline shows in Brooklyn and Los Angeles coming up in October. Tickets are on sale now, see itinerary below.

The Berries new album "High Flying Man" is out today and streaming everywhere

Faced with the perils of an isolating world, High Flying Man reignites the tradition of great American songwriting, speaking in the voice of the longing masses. At heart, Berry demands more life, rejecting both arty cynicism and nostalgic escapism.

STREAM ON SPOTIFY / HIGH FLYING MAN VINYL / APPAREL

It's the third album for Matt Berry’s pseudo-eponymous project. Loss and desire take center stage as Berry delves deep into 21st century malaise, crafting densely layered songs which project an unshakable yearning for deliverance from the world’s shortcomings. Each track extends an outstretched palm towards universal connection, blending a complex mix of pop hooks, rock swagger, and psychedelia into dejected populist anthems.

Berry cut his teeth at a young age playing in the bands Happy Diving (Topshelf Records) and Big Bite (Pop Wig), and has since regularly served as a touring member for bands like Angel Du$t and Dark Tea. His early work solidified his position as an upcoming star in the world of fuzzed-out indie rock, earning him tours and opening slots with the likes of Turnstile, Dinosaur Jr., Nothing and The Swirlies. With The Berries, however, Berry turns the Big Muffs down (although not off), creating sonic space to stretch his wings as a burgeoning pop songwriter. The psychedelic-surrealist textures of his earlier output are not gone, per say, but rather find themselves folded into more expansive, rock-oriented arrangements, becoming accouterments as opposed to the driving force of each song itself.

High Flying Man follows The Berries’ previous releases, 2018’s Start All Over Again and 2019’s Berryland. While longtime listeners will undoubtedly recognize Berry’s disaffected drawl and melodic sensibility, High Flying Man’s complex arrangements and expansive sonic landscape place it well apart from its predecessors. Berry enlisted live band members Danny Paul (drums), Emma Danner (backing vocals), and Lance Umble (bass) during the recording of High Flying Man, as well as the mixing talents of Rob Schnapf (Elliott Smith, Beck, Guided by Voices), breaking from the self-produced home recording ethos of the previous Berries LPs. The collaborative nature of High Flying Man’s recording process is reflected in the quality of each song’s arrangement. Freed from the pressure of being individually responsible for every detail committed to tape, Berry was able to focus his attention more fully on the creative demands of constructing a dynamic and cohesive record. High Flying Man pivots away from any sort of obvious nod to Americana tropes, baggy British attitude, or Neil Young-esque riffing, leaning head on into a lush, idiosyncratic grandeur.

New Field Medic single "I Think About You All The Time" streaming now, new LP out 10/14

Today, Field Medic shares “i think about you all the time”, the second single from his forthcoming album grow your hair long if you're wanting to see something that you can change, out October 14 via RFC.

On the new track, the LA-based musician otherwise known as Kevin Patrick Sullivan says,

“‘i think about you all the time’ is a love song to alcohol & younger days. It's a sort of sequel to my song "i will not mourn who i was that has gone away". I was struggling in my sobriety with some difficult life situations & wished I had the option of pressing the off switch that binge drinking has afforded me in the past. I had just written a song called "I hate being sober", which was a pretty negative way to frame the subject, so I set out to make a song that spoke of my longing in a way that sounded light & sweet. I wanted it to sound like a love song so it could speak to anyone who's missing anything, be it a person or in my case; a substance.

Praise for Field Medic’s previous video, “i had a dream that you died”:

“Field Medic’s music lacks filter in the best way” - Uproxx (Best New Indie)

“darkly charming humor that can make even the toughest of truths easier to swallow.” - Paste

“Kevin Patrick Sullivan makes nerve-ending-raw folk music with a diaristic edge.” - The FADER

“sincere, earnest and rough-around-the-edges charm” - Impose

“colorfully honest and all-encompassing” - Beats Per Minute

Beginning October 2022, Field Medic embarks on a headlining fall tour through the US and Canada, with support from Sadurn, Derek Ted, and Juliet Sunflower. For the first time, he’ll be accompanied by a band in addition to his trusty boombox. Find a full list of tour dates below; buy tickets here.
