Quick Hits: Figgy, OhBoy!, Empty Moon, Teleman, Davenport Cabinet, Witch Mountain

  • To give us a taste of his upcoming EP (out early October) Figgy will unveil his single “You Were Mine” on Magnetic Magazine. The track upholds the soulful dance energy that made his previous releases such a success for the rising producer.
  • Northampton five piece, OhBoy! are set to release the follow up to their infectious EP#1 on 20th October on Lock & key Records. EP#2 is released as a digital download and limited edition 7” vinyl. Stream the lead track now at SoundCloud.
  • Oakland-based indie-folk outfit Empty Moon have debuted the video for their latest single “75 Degrees.” Their debut album, The Shark, will be available November 4, 2014, via High Dive Records. “I wanted the video for “75 Degrees” to be an introduction to my new project and new surroundings,” explains Brendan Hangauer (AKA Empty Moon). “It was all shot in and around my new home in Oakland as well as during the recording sessions of The Shark in San Francisco. I directed, shot, and edited the video for a photography class I took at a community college in Lake Merritt months after moving to Northern California.”
  • Teleman premiered their video for “Mainline,” off debut LP Breakfast, earlier this week via Brooklyn Vegan. The video arrives ahead of the London-based band’s first stateside shows in support of the album, which was released on June 5, 2014 via Moshi Moshi Records.
  • Davenport Cabinet has partnered with Guitar World for the exclusive premiere of their new full-length, Damned Renegades, which will be out September 30 on Equal Vision Records. The album can be heard in its entirety.
  • Witch Mountain’s fourth album Mobile of Angels will be unleashed by Profound Lore Records in North America September 30, and via Svart Records in Europe and beyond. The album was produced by the legendary producer Billy Anderson, tracked and mixed in Type Foundry studios Portland, OR. The album is being premiered at Pitchfork.
