The One About Hollywood Power Couples

On this episode of Best Song Ever, recorded live from the Broom Tomb, Luke talks about Hollywood Power couples, while Brian tenderly confesses his love for Britt Daniel.  The Dear Dear LaBenne cousins also talk about not conforming to other people’s expectations and the importance of just being yourself.  Plus, Brian gets some things off his chest, which helps bring his beef broth down to room temperature.  It’s a weird and wild ride with an absolutely fantastic soundtrack.

Youth Lagoon – aka Idaho-native Trevor Powers – has confirmed his third album, Savage Hills Ballroom, out September 25 via Fat Possum Records. Often perceived as a recluse (his first LP is called The Year of Hibernation, after all), on Savage Hills Ballroom Powers has fully opened himself to the world for the first time ever. The 10-track collection is his most ambitious, unguarded work to date, recorded in Bristol, UK and co-produced/mixed/engineered by Ali Chant (PJ Harvey, Gravenhurst). First single “The Knower” is streaming now via NPR: http://n.pr/1O0zgXp

Fat Possum Records announced the release of Jack Ladder & The Dreamlanders’ upcoming album Playmates, due February 24, 2015. The first taste of the record “Come On Back This Way” showcases newfound lightness for Ladder, weaving a glistening synth melody with a chorus duet and wordless backing from Sharon Van Etten. Its video, which was directed by Alex Smith (Coldplay, Peaches & Iggy Pop), is available now for streaming and embed HERE.

It’s been almost twenty years to the day since Self released their hit cult record Subliminal Plastic Motives. The record’s dense and eclectic take on ‘90s rock still resonates with fans two decades later, and will soon be discovered by a new generation of indie rock lovers as Fat Possum Records prepares to release SPM on vinyl later this year.

The recent signing of founding and principal member of Self, Matt Mahaffey, by Fat Possum Records allows fans to take in SPM on vinyl for the first time and will open the door to long awaited new material from the band.

Since the original release of Subliminal, Mahaffey has become a legend in his home state of Tennessee. An accomplished producer and composer, Matt has produced hit records for HelloGoodbye, Parachute, The Sounds, Forever the Sickest Kids and many others while also composing music for hit TV shows and feature films such as Shrek.

With the original lineup in tow, Self now prepares to hit the stage for their first show in nearly a decade, playing at the Gramercy Theatre in NYC on January 10.
