"'We Can Only Blame Ourselves' is the first single and characterized by Erstrand a “reminder to all the lovers out there” full of delicate, unabashed soul carried by rhythmic piano and covered in a coppery sheen that hits just before sundown."

El Ten Eleven have teamed up with The Dig's Emile Mosseri to create their first-ever vocal collaboration: the Unusable Love EP. The title track premiered yesterday on Interview Magazine, where Kristian (of ETE) shared some insight on how the collaboration came to be:
"... something just drew me to Emile. We sent over a few instrumental tracks for [him] to chew on. He sent back a rough demo of what would eventually become the track ‘Delicate Friend.' We were blown away and it was on from there! It's really exactly what we wanted.. We were pushed out of our comfort zone a bit and I think it was really good for both of us."
The EP is available to pre-order now on CD, 10" vinyl, and in limited edition bundles, featuring pre-order exclusive merchandise. You can stream the title track via Youtube below, or find it anywhere else you listen to music.
Swedish duo Grapell is back in action today with a killer new single, 'No Longer Free'. Following last year's incredible Love Chamber EP, this track is the first that the band has shared off their upcoming debut album, due out later this year.
Stream the new tune below, or check it out on Spotify, iTunes, and wherever else you find music.
The band describes the album as centered "around the feelings that accompany a dystopian or uncertain future, either on a personal or universal level", while asking the question: "is there is a way to put the pieces back together, or does one just escape?" ... Listen for yourself and find out.
Night Drive have unveiled their brand new single -- 'Trapeze Artist Regrets', ahead of their album's release on June 16th.
The band explained the concept behind the tune as "a sorta metaphor for disaster... it's about watching someone you care about make the same mistake over and over again and not being able to do anything about it. Just hoping they pull through."
Their upcoming debut is now available for pre-order as digital download, CD, black vinyl LP, or in an exclusive limited-edition vinyl + signed poster bundle. All pre-orders include instant downloads of 'Trapeze Artist Regrets', plus 3 other tracks. Find out more and get yours here.
We are thrilled to announce that we've signed Australia's High Tropics to Roll Call Records!
Fronted by Josh Stewart (formerly of The Ninjas), the band emerges today with the release of their debut single, '15 Years', as well as an accompanying music video, which premiered this week via Pilerats.
"Kinda like old school The Strokes mixed with current day Violent Soho, it's all fuzzy guitars, driving bass and thumping drums. Elegant in its simplicity, '15 Years' is cracking debut from a band we reckon are gonna do some very good things, very quickly, on the Aussie rock'n'roll scene." — Pilerats
Listen to '15 Years' below, and be sure to give the music video a peep while you're at it.
Austin's Night Drive have released an "interstellar" new remix of their latest single 'Rise and Fall' from the LA-based duo, Classixx. The re-imagination of the track premiered today via Billboard.
"Rise and Fall is about the experience of a relationship hitting that sudden unavoidable end, and Classixx reinterprets the song through the lens of that same person reminiscing about the incident, many years later while chilling on a beach and sipping a martini. Sure it was sad and heartbreaking, but it's hard to stay sad while in the Cayman Islands." -- Night Drive
Listen to 'Rise and Fall (Classixx Remix)' below, and pick it up tomorrow on all digital platforms.
SWIMM have released 'First Time', the aptly-titled lead single taken off their upcoming debut LP, Sentimental Porno.

You can listen to 'First Time' below, as well as stream or buy the track on Spotify, iTunes, and all other digital retailers.
