"Occurrence IV - The Quintessential End"

Posted on May 12th, 2015

Bear Girl fuse elements of math rock and indie pop in their new music video for "Occurrence IV - The Quintessential End". The song is off the band's sophomore EP Le Fantastique and features Trevor Bartlett from the band Author. Filming took place at a live gig in the group's hometown at Glow In The Dark Studios. Austin Taylor captured and edited the sonic assault.

"Austin did a great job in translating the frantic and stimulating vibe this song exudes. It's real live footage cut like a horror movie and it's the perfect fit for 'Occurrence Four'." - Bear Girl

Le Fantastique is available now at www.cardiganrecords.com.

Post-Pop Trio Youth League Sign with Cardigan Records!!!

Posted on March 24th, 2015

Youth League, the post-pop trio from Wilmington, NC, has joined the roster at Cardigan Records. Brothers Mike and Zach Large, on guitar/vocals and drums respectively, formed the band in 2014 from the ashes of math aggressors Virgin Lung. They brought in bassist Jaffar Omar Obi Castillon-Martinez and created songs which defy the conventions on which they're built, yet hit the ear with a natural familiarity.

Their debut EP First will be released on 4/21. You can preorder First HERE . The six track record clocks in at just 16 minutes and marries rough punk edges with pop sensibility.

To celebrate the release Youth League is hitting the road with fellow Cardigan Records artists Iselia and Bear Girl as well as Wilmington's ipretend surprise!.
April 22nd - Greenville, NC - Limelight (Tipsy Teapot)
April 23rd - Raleigh, NC - Deep South The Bar
April 24th - Wilmington, NC - Reggie's 42nd Street Tavern

Must Be The Holy Ghost Releases Immoral Support Video

Posted on March 3rd, 2015

From the opening beat to the culminating screams, Must Be the Holy Ghost‘s “Immoral Support” is a slow-burn of a track, digging its roots into the darkest depths of the listener’s soul. Today (March 3), Diffuser is ecstatic to give you the official music video for the song, a similarly infective experience — you can take the ride above.

As the mastermind behind Must be the Holy Ghost, Jared Draughon has crafted a signature sound surrounding layers and layers of electronic rhythms blended with never-ending guitars and powerful vocals.

As for the new video, much like his music, it’ll likely require repeat viewings.

“It’s either a pimp’s bad acid trip or a musical narrative unveiling multiple personalities in a psychedelic and unsustainable relationship,” he laughingly explains, albeit somewhat cryptically. “This was one of the most enjoyable projects I’ve been a part of. The Gorbachov brothers and I took a crazy idea and ran with it.”

That “crazy idea” is rooted in his music, Draughon says. “It’s a very musical video, so many of the shots are cut on beats and the projections breathe with the pulse of the song.” - Diffuser.FM
