Award-winning producer and artist, Danger Mouse, will release the soundtrack for Edgar Wright’s highly anticipated film, Baby Driver, on his Columbia Records imprint 30th Century Records this June. The soundtrack for the music-heavy film, titled Music From The Motion Picture Baby Driver, boasts 30 multi-genre tunes in total, including 29 rare tracks and deep cuts, as well as one original song created by Danger Mouse specifically for Baby Driver.

Today, Danger Mouse released the aforementioned original song, “Chase Me” ft. Run the Jewels and Big Boi.

Debuting on Pitchfork, “Chase Me” ft. Run The Jewels and Big Boi serves as an original composition created specifically for the film. “Chase Me” ft. Run the Jewels and Big Boi is now available on all digital sales providers. Purchase and stream here: http://smarturl.it/ChaseMeSingle

But after being coerced into working for a crime boss (Kevin Spacey), he must face the music when a doomed heist threatens his life, love and freedom.

Music From The Motion Picture Baby Driver will be available digitally and physically on June 23. Full track listing to be announced in late June.

Grandaddy’s Kevin Garcia

There are no accurate words to express what we need to.

We are absolutely shattered to say that we lost our friend and band mate Kevin Garcia early this afternoon. He succumbed to the effects of a massive stroke.
We were all able to say goodbye to him and he was surrounded by his closest friends and family here in Modesto.
Kevin started playing with Grandaddy when he was fifteen. He was an actual angel. He navigated life with a grace, a generosity and a kindness that was utterly unique. And contagious. He is loved so deeply by so many.
Kevin was a proud father of two children, Jayden and Gavin. He is survived by his grandmother Joan, his parents Randy and Barbara (who let us practice at their house until 2001…and who are the best), his brothers Craig and Jeff and his wife Sondra.

We’ll have more to say in the days ahead. Right now the four of us are grieving together. With great sadness and love, Grandaddy

There is a gofundme here to help with his family’s coming expenses:

The Babe Rainbow

THE BABE RAINBOW
Australian Band Signs To 30th Century Records
Debut Self-Titled Album To Be Released June 2
Band Shares Video For “Peace Blossom Boogy

squareshot- credit - @thesunflowersutra

Australia’s The Babe Rainbow are happy to announce they have signed to 30th Century Records, the label spearheaded by Danger Mouse.  The band are set to release their debut self-titled album on June 2 and today the band reveal the first single from the album, the dreamy “Peace Blossom Boogy” (which had its radio premiere on Triple J last night).  Watch the Sam
Kristofski directed video HERE.Pre-order The Babe Rainbow here.The Babe Rainbow have just finished a tour of North America supporting Allah-La’s.  They played to packed rooms from coast to coast and including stops at New York City’s Webster Hall, Chicago’s Thalia Hall and The Mohawk in Austin, TX.  They previously joined The Growlers for a US tour in the Fall of 2015.

Recorded in “magicland” Byron Bay where the band is based, and produced by Stu Mackenzie of King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, The Babe Rainbow’s first LP is a think piece, stories from the dreamtime, all the colors of the rainbow.  As with the album’s teaser track “Losing Something” (Is Finding Something Else) and today’s “Peace Blossom Boogy,” expect timeless swirling sound and endless good vibes, cool cat vibes, and similar whirly-birding up and on.

The seeds of The Babe Rainbow were sown when Jack “Cool-Breeze” and Angus Darling The Hothouse Flower started a song writing partnership in middle school, but the band didn’t fully-bloom until late in 2015 when, travelling through France, the duo met Venezuelan pianist Lu-Lu-Felix Domingo and became a trio.  The band has previously released a self-titled EP featuring the single “Secret Enchanted Broccoli Forest.”

Maybird Release New Single “Keep In Line”

MAYBIRD RELEASE NEW SINGLE “KEEP IN LINE” VIA 30TH CENTURY RECORDS
ANNOUNCE BROOKLYN SHOW + US SPRING TOUR DATES


Stream/share “Keep In Line”

Maybird, a four-piece band from Rochester NY, have today released their newest single, “Keep In Line” produced by Patrick Carney of The Black Keys. DIY Magazine premiered the single and called it a “timeless psych-pop single” they also note it “often toes the line between pure psych-pop euphoria and a sense of frustration and restlessness, something that also feeds into the lyrics.”

Maybird was founded by Josh Netsky and have become known for creating timeless music with psychedelic pop overtones. Josh discussed the new single and noted, “I was sitting up on my roof in Brooklyn alone, zoned out, listening to this construction vehicle beeping a repetitive melody in the distance and something clicked. I recorded the sound of the beeps and made that the basis for “Keep in Line.” The lyrics ended up being about a feeling of restlessness when someone you’re used to having around is out being productive and you’re not, but wish you were… that’s what was going on with me at the time. There’s some pretty clear relationship lingo in here, but a lot of this song is also about the desire to travel and make music.”

In addition to the band’s headline Brooklyn Show on June 3rd, Maybird has also announced a US spring tour which will see them play Philadelphia, Boston, DC and more. A full run down can be found below.
