Pompeya ‘Real’ Album Announcement // “Liar” Stream via Noisey via No Shame



Real, the new album from Moscow-based band Pompeya will be released May 5 via No Shame. Real follows the band’s 2014 Night EP, which received immediate critical buzz, and their 2013 debut LP Tropical. SPIN hailed Night as “shimmering…upbeat, frisky disco”.

As a special preview, the album’s lead single “Liar” is now streaming at Vice’s Noisey blog (click here to view). They had this to say about the track:

“A slinky cut of new wave-ish indie, it’s like an upbeat incarnation of The Cure (sans the white makeup and black hair dye) doing a dance with an updated Duran Duran (sans the mullets and penchant of popped collar pastel trenchcoats). And then, just past the three minute mark, they throw in a damn saxophone. So Rob Lowe in St. Elmo’s Fire. Love this.”

1. Anyway
2. Pasadena
3. OOOOO (Cry About It)
4. To the Orient
5. Real

10. Last One

Black Taxi release music video for “Take Off the Edge” via No Shame



Black Taxi has released their video for their song “Take Off the Edge.” The quirky clip, directed by Carlos López Estrada, will keep you fully entertained for its duration.

“Life has been tough for a lot of people this last year,” said vocalist Ezra Huleatt, offering a keyhole view into the meaning behind the video and the song. “Sometimes it is important to shake the weight of the world off your shoulders for a few hours, realize that your problems are fairly insignificant in the grand scheme, and let loose.”

He furthered, ‘Take Off the Edge’ is in celebration of those moments when we shine, despite the darkness. I’ve been a fan of Carlos Lopez Estrada’s music videos for a long time so it was exciting to finally collaborate with him.”

Carlos López Estrada is a music video director and a Latin Grammy Award recipient.His music video for “Me Voy,” by Mexican pop band Jesse & Joy, earned the title of Best Short Form Music Video at the 2013 Latin Grammy Awards.

He also co-directed “Kangaroo Court” for the band Capital Cities in 2013, as well as  Carried Away by Passion Pit.

Watch the video here…

The band released its latest album, Electroshock Death Grip, on which “Take Off the Edge” lives. You can pick up your copy on vinyl and CD digipak, at the No Shame store, and digitally on iTunes.

Loveskills Premieres video for “Chanel” via Village Voice, No Shame

Screen Shot 2015-01-29 at 12.06.24 PMLoveskills has premiered the video for “Chanel”, on Village Voice. The video – directed by Yuichi Uchida, who also worked on the “Fine Lines” video – is, as the Voice describes, “woozy and endearingly hazy”, and features Latiana Blue, running in and out of the narrator’s imagination. Loveskills, Richard Spitzer, explains:

“The story is like an unobtainable dream. I’m trying to get a clear vision of this girl but the memories are too abstract and too hard to find.”

You can check out the video below, and the full premiere – including an interview with Loveskills – at the Village Voice.

If you’re digging this, be sure to check out more from João Miguel and Luciano Oliveira, aka The Twelves, here.”




Loveskills ‘Pure’ EP OUT NOW via No Shame

loveskills-pure-epNew York City’s electro-pop wizard Loveskills has officially released his new EP, Pure, today (11/4), via No Shame. After months of re-watching the music video for “Fine Lines” (premiered on Vice’s THUMP) and keeping his Smashing Pumpkins cover “Luna” (debuted on Prefix Mag) on repeat, the full record is finally available to be heard.

If you want a taste of Pure, PopMatters is streaming the record IN ITS ENTIRETY, at this link. Aside from just the stream, there’s a really great writeup. In it they say:

Pure EP, his latest offering, is replete with falsetto vocals, sensuous synth arrangements, and plenty of wicked beats to boot. Beginning with a cover of the Smashing Pumpkins’ “Luna”, the EP is a short but nonetheless clear declaration of Loveskills’ sonic MO.”

Pure is the followup to Loveskills 2013 Multiplicity EP. Spitzer described the album to Ghetto Blaster as, “an attempt in creating pure music that is also accessibly pop, centered all the material around that innocent naive inner day-dream voice that somehow still exists. That’s where a lot of my music stems from.”

Check out the album art and tracklist below, and be sure to keep an eye out for some more eye candy from Loveskills in the coming weeks!

Loveskills premieres “Fine Lines” music video on THUMP



Loveskills has premiered the new single and music video for “Fine Lines” on THUMP by VICE! The track is featured off the upcoming EP ‘Pure’ which is slated to hit stores on November 4th, 2014 through No Shame.


The official preorder for the new EP will drop next week on October 21st, 2014 on iTunes, keep your eyes peeled for that launch.

Rich recently spoke out about the new release and had this to say about the writing process, “I kept my ears away from new music even if it sounded amazing and especially if it was closely related genre-wise. Even if I liked what I heard, I would keep everything away in order to give my own music space to be itself.”

The six-song EP kicks off with a cover of Smashing Pumpkins’ “Luna” and proceeds with five pure, undiluted, entirely blissful tracks of the classic Loveskills sound.

Loveskills will also be performing live next week during the CMJ 2014 Music Marathon. You can catch the band live at the No Shame official showcase on Wednesday, October 22nd at Cameo Gallery in Brooklyn. Click here for full details and RSVP to that event.
