Introducing: We Are Augustines

One of our new favorite bands that we’ve been working with lately goes by the name We Are Augustines. This Brooklyn based band is the product of Billy McCarthy and Eric Sanderson, who started the project in 2009. Their new album, Rise Ye Sunken Ships, debuted yesterday and is available for purchase on iTunes as well as for streaming on Grooveshark

The 12-track album is an incredibly moving journey of love, loss, redemption and triumph; with tones reminiscent of some of the more anguished moments in The National’s “Boxer”. The intriguing music video for the single “Chapel Song” helps to introduce their story, and was enough to hook us in to the rest of the album. I highly recommend reading their full story from the band’s website to really get a feel of how the music was born; it’s truly an impressive tale.

Quiet Company Debuts Video + Announces Album Release Date

Big news, everybody! Austin-based Grooveshark Artists Quiet Company have announced that their album, We Are Where We All Belong, will be released on October 4. The first single off of the album is due out in early August. 

Check out the music video for the track, “Fear & Fallacy, Sitting in a Tree” :

Quiet Company - Fear and Fallacy, Sitting in a Tree - Official Music Video from Digital Shakedown on Vimeo.

We Are Where We All Belong represents Quiet Company’s return to form, featuring pop hooks, grinding guitars and vocal harmonies. Lyrically, the album chronicles the range of emotions that a person might experience in a post-breakup period: tones of sadness, resentment, and self-doubt are intermixed with the feelings of joy and freedom that come from the realization that one has made the right decision. 

"It is easily the most personal thing that I have ever written," said lead singer Taylor Muse. "It is, essentially, a break up record, only the romance that’s ending was between myself and religion."

As you may know, we recently announced a partnership with Quiet Company’s label, Rocket Science, to champion forward thinking artists like the band. Check ‘em out and mark your calendars for October 4th!
