Jenny O. Releasing Debut EP


LA based artist Jenny O. is digitally releasing her first EP on November 30th via Manimal Vinyl, home to fellow lady artists Bat For Lashes and Warpaint.  Jenny also produced and engineered the album herself.  The physical release of the album will be announced within the coming months. 

Jenny O. was raised in New York and discovered her passion for music at a very young age.  Playing instruments such as the piano and cello, Jenny began making her own recordings on her dad’s reel-to-reel by the time she was 13.  Her musical influences range from the hippie like sounds of folk to jazz infused hip hop with a little 60s and 70s pop to add a twist.  Her voice is soft and flowing but her lyrics are frank and the two mesh perfectly to create a perfect balance.    

Although Jenny has performed in countless bands, Home is her first solo album.  Check out the first single off the album, “Well, Ok Honey” and other tracks by Jenny O. here.

Home Tracklisting:
1. Well, OK Honey
2. All My Wishes
3. Won’t Let You Leave

Rewards, Aaron Pfenning of Chairlift Adds New Tour Dates

With main project Chairlift on the sidelines for now, co-founder Aaron Pfenning has been keeping himself busy performing solo work under his own name and as Rewards. As the latter, with his deep, breathy baritone layered in (you guessed it) “sunny reverb-drenched guitar hooks and puffy surges of synthesizer” it makes perfect sense that Mr. Pfenning recently completed a leg of his European tour opening for Brandon Flowers of The Killers. Now it looks like Rewards will be staying busy for the rest of 2010, as he’s just announced additional dates in Europe and North America, first with current tour mates We Are Scientists and culminating in a five day run with rising act Warpaint.

Check out the full list below:

Warpaint Release CD, Add Tour Dates

One of Los Angeles’ hottest new bands, Warpaint have released their debut album The Fool this week. The band has already received raves from the New York Times, Rolling Stone and the Chicago Times, among others, for their ethereal melodies and beautiful vocals.

On top of their first ever full-length, the critical darlings have announced that they will be touring the states starting in November!
