Runnner, the project of the now LA-based songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Noah Weinman, has signed to RFC and will be releasing his new album Always Repeating on July 16th.
A 10-track collection composed of five re-recorded versions of songs that appeared on his 2017 debut, Awash, and last year’s One of One EP, Always Repeating serves as a fresh introduction to the artist and his enchanting musical world, where he balances intimate and melancholy songwriting through the lens of hi-fi/lo-fi dynamics. “Awash,” the album’s sweeping first single out today, embodies the feeling of being lost and adrift through its aching melody, and builds on the track’s early demo with lush choral harmonies, banjo, trumpet, slide guitar, and more. “I wrote this song in about 15 minutes, though I had been kicking the title around for a bit,” Runnner explains. “It felt like the word I was looking for, but I couldn’t get past it. I was feeling so lost & distant from everything, but I would choke on the language anytime I tried to elaborate. I eventually was able to let the song come simply and not stress the specificity too much.”
Fiddlehead—the punk powerhouse featuring members of Have Heart, Basement, and more—are releasing their sophomore full-length, Between The Richness, on May 21st from Run For Cover Records. Today the band have shared one more early single, the anthemic "Down University."
Between The Richness finds Fiddlehead expanding on their dynamic blend of hardcore energy and undeniable melody, and crafting their most immediate set of songs to date. Every song on the album bursts with Revolution Summer grit, massive hooks, and vocalist Pat Flynn's deeply thoughtful and open-hearted lyrics, and "Down University" is no different. The song follows earlier singles "Heart To Heart" and "Million Times" (which earned attention from the likes of Stereogum, The FADER, NPR, Consequence of Sound, BrooklynVegan, Paste Magazine, and more) and captures Fiddlehead's knack for crafting sing-along-ready moments without losing an ounce of intensity.
The Berries - "Throne of Ivory (Singles & B-Sides)" is out today, pre-order the cassette and stream it everywhere now
The new album from The Berries titled 'Throne of Ivory (Singles & B-sides)' is out today. The record consists of one-off singles recorded and released over the summer of 2020, along with b-sides from previous and unreleased proper full length albums by The Berries. The limited cassette is available now in our webstore.
Matt Berry, the multi-instrumentalist behind The Berries, has previously released two LP’s on Run for Cover: Start All Over Again (2018), a sparkling case of Neil Young worship, and Berryland (2019), an ennui ridden nod to the sounds of Primal Scream and Americana. On Throne of Ivory, however, Berry no longer stands on the shoulders of songwriting giants. Each song bursts with character, layering frigid piano lines and bubbling synths over Berry’s signature guitar heroics. Eyebrow raising experimentalism meets incredible pop sensibility, imbuing the whole record with the captivating energy of a new voice firing on all cylinders.
The first side of Throne of Ivory showcases a set of singles written and recorded during the summer of 2020, while the second features reworked versions of tracks that were originally written for Berryland and his upcoming third LP. While all of the songs on Throne of Ivory were recorded from the comfort of Berry’s home, he smartly avoids the intentionally amateur sentimentalism usually associated with “bedroom pop.” Instead, Berry exploits the advantages of home recording, outfitting his songs with massive synthetic drums and complex vocal harmonies.
