While Mynabirds front woman, Laura Burhenn, has been touring with Conor Oberst and Company, The Mynabirds have been touring relentlessly the last month, adding singer-songwriter/producer Richard Swift to fill out the lineup. Filmmaker Shervin Lainez captured some beautiful black and white footage of the band behind the scenes, setting it to the song “LA Rain.” For those begging to hear new music from Burhenn, the front woman states she is hard at work on new songs in the midst of the Bright Eyes tour. The band is set to enter the studio in September, with Richard Swift set to helm the production once again.

Girls Names Premiere New Video, Release New Album April 26th

Belfast trio, Girls Names, owe a great deal of debt to 80’s and early 90’s goth-pop acts such as Black Tambourine, Felt and the Sound of Young Scotland. While not the first band to incorporate such influences, Girls Names still manage to carve out a sizable niche while sharing the stage with such notables as Times New Viking, Dum Dum Girls, and Abe Vigoda. Their new album, Dead To Me, was recorded in the latter half of 2010 and is set to be released April 26th on Slumberland Records. Check out the first single, “Bury Me.”
