Come see BIG UPS at the Northside Festival next weekend! Recommended by the L Mag themselves: 
"Big Ups: Herky jerky, post-hardcore thrashers who dance on the verge of completely freaking out and yet end up giving the impression that overall they’re pretty together.(Silent Barn, Baby’s All Right)”

We’re proud to announce that our next release (DL 002) will be Blue Breath by Bellows, the Brooklyn-based bedroom-folk project of singer/songwriter Oliver Kalb. Unlike the common go-into-the-studio approach of recording, Blue Breath was recorded remotely in five different bedrooms across the U.S. Although Bellows is the songwriting project of Kalb, the record features contributions from Gabrielle Smith (eskimeaux/Frankie Cosmos’ live group), Felix Walworth (Told Slant), and Henry Crawford (Small Wonder)—all members of the artist collective The Epoch Is Now.

Bellows falls under the “folk” blanket only in the loosest sense. There’s the familiar sound of clean guitar, but the sonic space is filled with transcendent synths, shout vocals, and a barrage of drums that strip Bellows of any easy classification. Despite this, the music is still crystalline and honest, an amazing feat of songwriting and production—especially for a “bedroom” recording.

"For Rock Dove", Blue Breath's lead single, is streaming over at The Fader, and the album is now available digitally on iTunes and for vinyl pre-order here. Pre-orders will ship on August 29.

Big Ups stopped in Belgium on their latest tour. Cutting Edge wrote a very nice review of that show.
Sample quote? “Big Ups speelt ongemeen harde punk aan een oorverdovend volume en met een strakheid waaraan veel gelijkaardige bands een puntje kunnen zuigen.” 
Hell yeah! Read the rest of the interview HERE!
