mouse on the keys // New Album 'Tres'

It is an honor to announce that we will be releasing mouse on the keys' new album Tres on May 23rd! We were fortunate enough to work with them on their Out of Body EP and a split with LITE, and we're so happy to keep this train rolling. Over the past 12 years, mouse on the keys has cultivated an entire genre unto themselves by blurring the lines between jazz, funk, post‐rock, and electronic music. Their unique sound includes two pianos, two keyboards and drums, and they continue to stand at the forefront of the Japanese music scene. Fans of LITE and Giraffes? Giraffes!, take note! Tres will be released on 12" vinyl, CD, and digitally May 23rd, and you can sign up here to be notified when pre-orders go live!

Queen of Jeans // "U R My Guy"

We're now less than 2 weeks away from the release of Queen of Jeans' amazing LP Dig Yourself! With that, we give you their latest single "U R My Guy," a sultry track that soothes the ear while pushing gender norms. You can read more about how the band aimed to satirize the problematic messaging employed by the very 60s girl groups they're inspired by over at UPROXX. The single is already available on all digital outlets -

Dig Yourself drops on all formats on March 30th, so make sure to secure your pre-order here!

And in case you missed it, here's the wonderfully endearing video for the album's first single, "More to Love!"
