Digital Space – new Futur Primitif single

Digital Space is the new single by Futur Primitif, the band featuring songwriter and singer Daniel Lefkowitz, former member of American indie-folk darlings The Low Anthem. Daniel (voice/guitar) is joined in Futur Primitif by Jared Elmore on synths, drum machine and a large mess of cables. Their forthcoming album Machineteeth was recorded live with a full band comprised of members of The Low Anthem in the Columbus Theatre in Providence, Rhode Island, and produced by Ben Knox Miller.

Now signed to Integrity for European releases, Futur Primitif’s second single from the album is Digital Space (INT 040), out on 6th May 2013, and follows debut track Nuclear Shockwave which featured on BBC 6 Music, XFM and Amazing Radio.

“Excellent” John Kennedy, XFM “Exceptional … 5/5″ AAA Music

“Velvets go folk … very good” Paul Lester “…dreamy indiefuzz” Pop Dodger

Upon leaving The Low Anthem, Daniel dropped out for two years, living in a yurt in rural Arkansas where he gave up creature comforts in exchange for a more direct connection with the natural systems. Since then, he’s been attempting to reconcile this more intuitive lifestyle with the surrounding globalised digital world. Digital Space is about the confrontation of man and his manufactured environments — in particular the homogenised identi-kit high streets which feature so heavily in most towns and cities.

Both the artwork for the single and its video feature the intriguing work of up-and-coming Ashville-based muralist, Phyliss Vanilla.

Futur Primitif is currently an electric duo, incorporating elements of Velvet Underground era rock, sparse folk, and a fearless approach to the wall of sound. Live UK dates in May will be followed by a further tour in September including an appearance at the End of the Road Festival in Dorset.

Miniature Dinosaurs Get Loaded

In the midst of their recent UK tour promoting the rather fabulous Turn It On EP, Miniature Dinsoaurs were invited into the studio of LOADED TV, the brand new television station running alongside the glossy monthly Loaded Magazine.

Inbetween boozing and dancing and other unprintable shenanigans with various models, actresses and some girls from TOWIE (!), the Dinos actually managed to play some songs live in the studio.

The session airs tonight at 9pm in the Dial M for Music (Dial M for Miniature Dinosaurs) show, on Loaded TV, SKY Channel 200.

Valentiine’s Day Beckons

We’re absolutely stoked to announce the signing of VALENTIINE, an amazing 3 piece all-girl garage rock band from Melbourne, Australia.

Val_colour_thumb

Their debut UK single for us will be ‘Love Like’ (INT 039), out on 8th April 2013.

Valentiine are Vanessa (guitar/vocals), Erica (bass/vocals) and Shelly (drums/vocals), 3 girls who reincarnate the heavy 90’s into something beautiful – dirty pop hooks drowned in the honesty of screaming vocals with seething cheerleader harmonies over the top.

Listen to ‘Love Like’ here: ‘Love Like’ on SoundCloud

“Fabled Label” status granted!

Our tiny team here at Integrity Towers was surprised and flattered to be featured as this week’s Fabled Label in the national music industry trade magazine, Music Week. We never seek the limelight for ourselves – that’s for the talented bands and artists we help – but it’s always nice to see a little recognition for the hours of graft that we, and hundreds of other small labels, agents and managers, put in to try to bring those creative, talented musicians and songwriters to a wider audience.

So, thanks Music Week …
