Topshelf Tour Announcement + People Like You Video

The amazing People Like You have a new video for “Variations on an Aria” up on BrooklynVegan! It focuses on the theme of family and celebrates the varying backgrounds of the members of the band, resulting in an incredibly heart-warming and personal visual accompaniment to the song.

The band will also be part of our upcoming Topshelf tour this winter! Prawn, Slingshot Dakota, and People Like You will be heading up and down the East Coast, accompanied by Queen Moo and Us and Us Only on select dates. Unfortunately they won't be coming to the UK, but if you find yourself in the states in December, be sure to hit up one of the shows! There will even be some fun exclusive merch on a first come, first serve basis. Tickets will be on sale this Wednesday.

Pre-order Slingshot Dakota's "Dark Hearts"!

image
(photo by Ryan Russell)

Slingshot Dakota is a band that, if you're reading this, you likely know and love. They're fantastic musicians and even better people. Their knack for writing catchy songs paired with their innate ability to do things with their two instruments that most bands can’t do with a standard set up is trumped only by the very real and sincere passion behind it all. So, we're thrilled to announce today that pre-orders for the pair's new record, Dark Hearts, are now up!

image

Out November 6th, Dark Hearts is an important record for them and will certainly be an important one in the history of our catalog. We're thrilled to be releasing it and hope you're all excited for it as well!

You can now pre-order the record through the Topshelf Records web store.

image

In the meantime, you can download/stream two new tracks from the record now!:
