Brooklyn’s Monogold has announced its first new release since 2011’s The Softest Glow, a debut LP that showcased the trio’s own brand of lush, dreamy pop. Due out on November 11th, their new EP, “This Bloom”, will act as a prelude to an upcoming full-length, delivering six new tracks that feature layers of hazy, shimmering instrumentation, soaring vocals, and blissed-out melodies.

Self-recorded and produced in Monogold’s own studio, “This Bloom” finds the band mixing sleepy, serene dreamscapes with driving rhythms and memorable hooks, for tracks that are both hypnotic and energized. Live, they put on a frenetic and dynamic show and have shared stages with bands like …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead, Hot Hot Heat, YACHT, Hooray For Earth, and Bear Hands.



The Sun Parade works in the great American rock tradition, smuggling rogue love and existential urgency into the room on get-happy grooves. Their new EP Heart’s Out delivers on the promise of earlier songwriting with a catalog of love collisions; casual sandwich obsession; and Northern, psychedelic, basement guitar licks. Influences of Afro-pop, Elliott Smith, bluegrass brother harmonies, and four gents from Liverpool.

Based in Northampton MA since 2011, The Sun Parade has been steadily creating a buzz in New England and a grassroots following of fans across the country. In 2012 The Sun Parade released a full length LP “Yossis” and the single “Need You By My Side”, a regional hit voted the #1 song by WRSI 93.9 The River. In 2014, they released the joyful pop EP “Heart’s Out” and toured the road, including a host of shows with their pals Lake Street Dive. 2015 will find them continuing to spread the good music, touring the Northeast with their soul mates, the accessible unconscious existential indie glitter popsicle crisis band And The Kids, and hitting the recording studio to work on their next LP.
