Texas Band Dovetail to Release First Album “Mount Karma” on OK! Good Records Oct 29


Dovetail will release their first full-length album “Mount Karma” on OK! Good Records on Tuesday, October 29th. A full preview of the album is available on the OK! Good Records website (http://okgoodrecords.com).

It’s not everyday that six individuals can come together to produce music that is honest and genuinely reflective of their personalities. In that sense, Dovetail is special. The self described “band of brothers” based out of Dallas Texas have really come into their own with their first full-length studio album, “Mount Karma.”

“On this album we have, through an extensive amount of time in the studio and live shows, really found ourselves,” says singer and frontman Phillip Creamer. “We spent about two years tracking this record…so it reflects on how we are a band now and we can play music together a little more easily and understand each other.”

Produced by Beau Patrick Bedford, “Mount Karma” is an incredible 14 song journey that will surely captivate its listeners. Dovetail 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 Phillip’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” which appears on “Mount Karma.”

“Mount Karma” will be released on Tuesday, October 29th on OK! Good Records, available where ever music is sold. The album can be previewed and purchased on the OK! Good Records website (http://okgoodrecords.com) prior to the release date. “Mount Karma” can also be previewed and pre-ordered right now on iTunes.

“Mount Karma” – Track Listing

01. Julie
02. Big City
03. Hey Hey Mama
04. Heavy
05. See The Sun
06. Can’t Feel You
07. Hurricane
08. Easier To See

New EP From A Genuine Freakshow To Hit US And Canada Via OK! Good Records On April 9th


A Genuine Freakshow’s latest EP, “Where The River Bends,” will be released on April 9th in digital format via OK! Good Records.

On April 9th, UK seven-piece, A Genuine Freakshow, will see their latest EP “Where The River Bends” released in the US and Canada via OK! Good Records on iTunes, Amazon and other music streaming services. The 4 track EP is also available right now on the OK! Good Records website, streaming for free or purchasable as a digital download.

A Genuine Freakshow is an artful blend of pop sensibility, icy soundscapes and blistering walls of noise. Their sound, while impressively focused, covers a range of musical staples, with the group letting influences from Mew to Sigur Ros and The National surface throughout.

Their songs capture quirky and catchy pop akin to Pulp in their pomp and grandeur – and even geeky charm. This ability to combine the poppy elements of indie rock whilst maintaining an intricate, delicate soul is what they do best. With a line-up that adds violin, cello and trumpet to the standard rock four-piece of guitar, bass, drums and vocals, their live shows are a demonstration in how to do epic without slipping into pompous.

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 band 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 their first brand new music in almost three years.
