Kite Party - Come On Wandering LP Out May 6th / Stream New Track



Following their 2011 debut, Baseball Season, Kite Party will release their long awaited sophomore album Come On Wondering on May 6th via Animal Style Records. Today, Stereogum are sharing the LP’s first single, “Halflife,” calling it, “A warm introduction to the Philly band’s dreamy, wondrous music, but it’s also tinged with melodies and vocal inflections that cut with an intense melancholy. It’s sparklingly pretty music, acting like an inhibitor to the wounded sentiments just below the surface.”

Stream Halflife at Stereogum

Kite Party vocalist/guitarist Russell Edling elaborated on “Halflife” sharing, "Why does this feel off?" is a sentiment that pops up in several places throughout Come on Wandering. The song Halflife focuses on how "off" you can feel when you are a 20-something and you still feel like you're sucking your thumb.”

The Philadelphia based quintet has come a long way in the three years since their debut, blending new sounds and ideas into the radiant Come On Wandering at every turn. The record swirls with nuanced indie rock, warm and shimmering shoegaze, delicate brushes with dream pop, and subtle hints of a youth spent listening to punk.

Come On Wandering will be pressed in a variety of vinyl options. Pre-orders are now available. Click here to pre-order

Young Turks - Where I Rise 7"/Digital out Nov 5



We're pleased to continue working with our Portland, OR brothers Young Turks. On November 5 we'll release Where I Rise on 7" and digitally. Stay tuned for new music, pre-orders, and tour information.

Where I Rise is a declaration of life moving forward, while trying to let go of the past. Stand out track "Zone K" begins, "About 364 days a year, I'm not thinking about you." Clearly vocalist Matt Koenig has moved forward from Where I Lie but not without a painful reminder of what once was. The former themes of betrayal and hopelessness have been exchanged for the strength to overcome and the will to endure.

Returning to D-Wreck Studios in Portland, Oregon, YOUNG TURKS were able to capture the unique sound and feel of northwest hardcore. Enlisting Alex Estrada of Earth Capital Studios (Touché Amore, Joyce Manor, Silver Snakes) to mix, the final product walks the line between a polished studio effort and the raw energy of a live performance.
