FAIRCHILD ‘Sadako’ EP Available Now!

Fairchild - Sadako EP OK! Good Records is excited to announce that today, November 18th 2014, FAIRCHILD ‘Sadako’ EP is available for purchase in North America.

FAIRCHILD are an indie pop-rock band hailing from the Gold Coast, Australia. Their blend of intimate, yet epic indie rock, is a theme that tightly winds through their ‘Sadako’ EP, and has drawn comparisons to the likes of The Temper Trap, Cayucas and Two Door Cinema Club.

It’s an accessible sound with dreamy guitar lines and effortlessly smooth vocals that almost anyone can find something to like in and is one of my favorite EPs of the year.” -The 405

After spending two months working on the six-track EP, recording in vocalist Adam Lyons’s bedroom, it was mixed by Catherine Marks (Foals, Wolf Alice, The Killers) at London’s Assault & Battery Studios. Marks also recorded and produced the band’s debut EP ‘Burning Feet‘, which they released earlier this year after some years experimenting with their sound. The band also includes Adams older brother Nathan Lyons on keys, guitarists Patrick Huerto and Tim Voeten, bassist Tommy Davies and drummer James Alexander.

You can purchase FAIRCHILD’s ‘Sadako’ EP on iTunes and Amazon.
‘Sadako’ EP is available for streaming on Spotify and Bandcamp.

Jon Allen – ‘Deep River’ Out Now!

Jon Allen - Deep River

OK! Good Records is proud to announce the US release of Jon Allen’s third solo album, Deep River, available in our webstore now! Fans can also find the album on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Bandcamp and at other major retailers.

Deep River is the follow-up to OK! Good Records’ 2012 release of Jon’s album Sweet Defeat, and features the BBC Radio 2 hit and opening track, “Night & Day.” The album sees Jon channeling his wide range of influences as he mixes catchy Sixties-inflected rock, soul, and country blues. “I just try to write music that moves me,” says Jon. “I’m trying to express some truthfulness. There are no gimmicks, no beeps and whistles.”

Folk Radio UK recently named Deep River one of their Featured Albums of the Month, and did an interview with Jon where he touches on his inspirations for the album and his songwriting process:

“The songs for Deep River were pretty much all written in 2013. When I got back off tour I began focusing more intensely on the melodies and ideas I had built up on the Dictaphone on my phone whilst I’d been touring. In 2013 I started a relationship and in the same year we broke up, so many of the song are informed by the experience of love and the highs and lows that come with it.”

Dovetail – Mount Karma

Dovetail is a band of brothers. Fronted by singer/songwriter Philip Creamer and joined by brother and co-writer Daniel Creamer, the band is a family of creative free-spirits in pursuit of the high and lofty. Dovetail gives much credence to musical predecessors and lives in a magic place of sonic discovery.

Dovetail’s first full-length studio album “Mount Karma” (Produced by Beau Patrick Bedford) is an incredible 14 song journey that will surely captivate its listeners. The band clearly draws much of their musical inspiration from 60s and 70s era rock and roll, tapping into the simple yet dynamic arrangements and huge-sounding vocal productions of bands like The Beach Boys, The Byrds and The Beatles. Still, the band is able to create a fresh and modern sound, with frontman Philip’s voice channeling the likes of Tom Chaplin of Keane, or at times, Matthew Bellamy of Muse.

As a testament to the band’s tremendous songwriting capabilities, Dovetail holds the prestige of winning the 2012 John Lennon Song Writing Contest in the category of Rock Song of the Year with their song “Julie.”

A Genuine Freakshow – Where The River Bends (EP)

A Genuine Freakshow – Where The River Bends (EP) [BUY NOW]

After playing over 150 headline and festival shows since the release of debut album “Oftentimes” in late 2010 (later released by OK! Good Records in early 2012), April 2012 saw the A Genuine Freakshow take a step away from the road and head to the studio with long-term collaborator and producer Jordan Fish to record a handful of new songs the band had written and been performing live over the previous summer.

Originally planned to be part of a new album, the songs on “Where The River Bends” ended up being a complete story on their own, so the band decided to release these tracks in a special EP package.

The Musgraves – You That Way, I This Way

UK roots-pop four piece, The Musgraves, sing of love and heartbreak like many of their folk-influenced contemporaries, but do so without the frequently prevailing melancholy. This brighter, more cheerful quality clearly reflects the band’s influences of early rock and roll from the Phil Spector era to Motown, producing a sound that could be described as something like The Beach Boys meet Mumford And Sons. Armed with acoustic guitars, violin, banjo, glockenspiel and of course Matthew Bennett’s soulful voice, The Musgraves deliver uplifting pop songs, with simple hooks designed to be catchy and memorable.

The Musgraves’ 11 song debut album “You That Way I This Way” is set to release in the US via OK! Good Records (http://okgoodrecords.com) on April 16, and could quite possibly be the anti-depressant to the recent surge of bitter-sweet anthems of love and loss from bands like The Lumineers, Of Monsters and Men, and The Head And The Heart.

So far, The Musgraves have already managed to make quite the name for themselves on their home turf. With a “Q The Music Track of the Day” in the bag and a BBC 6 Music Record of the Week for the infectious “So Sofia,” further airplay on BBC Radio 2 and Q Radio, plus growing support from regional radio stations across the UK, this Midlands based roots-pop four piece has established themselves as “ones to watch.”

British Telecom (BT) adopted the band in 2011 using an instrumental of their epic ballad “Discover Me” as the bed for the “Adam and Jane” TV wedding campaign.
The debut single, “Last Of Me,” has already been championed by Graham Norton on his BBC Radio 2 show. The track explores the imminent end of a long-term relationship – the loss of love, friendship and, ultimately, identity – but, in true Musgraves style, it sits on a feel-good alt-pop arrangement, brimming with 50s and 60s pop/soul influences.

“…Beautifully crafted Pop-Folk songs that capture a tremendous sense of effortless energy and emotion showing a song writing ability well beyond their years and far above that of you’re average band. Undoubtedly they have potential to go far…” – BBC West Midlands

“…The freshness and enthusiasm of these musicians has been coupled with mature song writing and a polished production sound rarely found on a debut independent release. The result is folk-infused alt-pop at its best…” – The Line of Best Fit
