DOWNLOAD: Luke Roberts - "HIs Song" (MP3)
Folk singer Luke Roberts who recently moved from Brooklyn to Montana and eventually Nashville, released his sophomore LP, The Iron Gates at Throop and Newport, earlier this year via Thrill Jockey. The album was produced by Marky Nevers, who's produced and played with Lambchop and mixed by Kyle Spence of Harvey Milk. That's the artwork above. The songs are made up of raw Will Oldham-esque folk with bare, intimate production that leaves little filter between the listener and the music. Grab the track, "His Song," above or stream it below, and listen to the whole album on Spotify. The tracklist is also below.
Luke just finished up a European tour in support of the album earlier this week, and he's got a few US dates to follow including one in NYC TONIGHT (5/4) at Zebulon with Zachary Cale, DJ Dutch E Germ and DJ Tax the Rich.
All dates, stream, album art and tracklist below...

With Growing's new Vice Records LP PUMPS due this week, the trio will celebrate with a US tour that will kick off with an album release party at Coco66 on Tuesday, 4/6. Eric Copeland (of Black Dice), Luke Roberts and The Monroe Indians will provide support along with DJ sets from Ron Morelli, Josh Wildman, and Taka Hiro.
The new album PUMPS is the first for Growing as a trio, and was recorded at The Ocropolis, aka Oneida's Brooklyn studio. The LP also marks their debut for Vice Records, who currently have the album up for preorder. Two tracks from that album are free downloads above. Cover art and tracklist below.
Growing recently made two videos, as well as a gang of video vignettes in celebration of PUMPS. One video, "Mind Eraser" is only available with purchase of the LP, but you can dig on all of the rest of the vids/vignettes (some of which are possibly NSFW?) below. All tour dates down there too...
