Scratch That Itch: 6 Songs You’ve Probably Heard and Wondered About

June 21, 2012 Artist News No Comments

James Bond, Daniel Craig, SkyfallHere is a small collection of songs that The Orchard distributes, which you might have heard before in a movie, in a commercial, at a sporting event, online or even as someone’s annoying ringtone that got stuck in your head. One or more of these may have you asking “where did I hear that before…?” Now, you know!

Artist: Yolanda Be Cool and DCUP
Title: We Speak No Americano (Original Mix)
Label: Cat Music

History: Every sporting event has songs playing ad nauseam to lift the spirits of the crowd. This one can be added to the collection of tunes alongside Gary Glitter and Ole. Clothing commercials use the same tactic to get you excited about their product. This song seems to fit the same purpose. Either way, if you want to get excited about something, this song can help!

Artist: O-Zone
Title: Dragostea Din Tei
Label: Cat Music

History: This song hails all the way from Moldova. You may know it better as the “Numa Numa Song” lip-synced by the internet icon, Gary Bralsma. He ended up making another Numa Numa comeback but it wasn’t as strong as the original tune. O-Zone also has another song called “Numai Tu.” The video is pretty similar to Dragostea Din Tei — with dancing and air travel galore!

Artist: Nada Surf
Title: Always Love
Label: Barsuk Records

History: This band is popping up everywhere. Especially this song. When I see ads for movies that seem somewhat romantic or emotional, “Always Love” perfectly matches the mood. You may not want to go see that film but at least the soundtrack is pretty good. Why not check out more Nada Surf?

No Need To Wait… Nada Surf Kick Off Summer Tour and New Video

June 19, 2012 Artist News No Comments

Nada SurfLet’s hear it for  Nada Surf, who are kicking off their summer tour dates with the release of the music video for the song “Waiting For Something,” off their recently released seventh album The Stars Are Indifferent To Astronomy.

The video, directed by Violetta D’Agata, is described as a personal journey through interlocking time in the lives of several interconnected characters, all of whom share the mystique and beauty of their Spanish island — Ibiza.

The tour kicks off tonight in Lancaster, PA with the San Francisco based group Waters joining the party through July 5th. Nada Surf is going to be playing in a bunch of cities they haven’t visited in a long time, and they’re super-excited to get back in front of those fans.

If you want a taste of what the band will sound like on tour, Rdio just released an exclusive live recording of Nada Surf‘s January 24th show at Bowery Ballroom. Believe me, it’s not to be missed.

And now…. Here’s the video for “Waiting For Something!” Check out Nada Surf’s full list of tour dates after the jump.

“The Stars Are Indifferent to Astronomy” But Not to Nada Surf: New Album Out Now

February 2, 2012 Artist News No Comments

Nada Surf’s seventh studio album “The Stars are Indifferent to Astronomy” is out now on Barsuk Records!

Barsuk Records and Nada Surf celebrated the January 24th release of the critically acclaimed album “The Stars Are Indifferent To Astronomy” by unveiling the music video for “When I Was Young,” on VEVO. They also performed their song “Hi-Speed Soul” on NBC’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

The Brooklyn trio’s seventh studio album has been met with tons of praise. “Nada Surf have always had an ace in Matthew Caws’ voice,” write Filter, while The Boston Globe was won over by what they described as the album’s “non stop joy.” Relix wrote that for a band who last released an album of original songs four years ago, “it’s notably refreshing to receive any new tracks – let alone a set of songs as perfectly composed as the ones here.”

See for yourself in the first music video of the album, “When I Was Young”:
