I JUST LOVE YOU MORE, KATE!

Kate Nash will release her new album in April this year, produced by Bernard Butler- who has previously worked with Duffy and Black Kids. While few details other than tracklisting have been revealed, the singer has offered a free download of one of the tracks, "I Just Love You More," via her official site.

This is exciting news!! It's been quite some time since we have heard anything out of Ms. Nash, so I can't wait to hear what brilliant new stuff she brings us. Hopefully, after the release of her new album, she will grace us with a new tour.

I RUN WITH YOU, SPIRIT ANIMAL

Evan Voytas is an LA-based singer/multi-instrumentalist. Born in rural Pennsylvania, Evan was raised on the oldies, listening to his father's cassette tapes of Elvis and the Righteous Brothers. As a teenager, he discovered jazz. At age 18, he moved to Harlem where he immersed himself in various religious texts and 70's new age paperbacks. He grew a beard, moved to the desert, moved back, shaved the beard, played lead guitar for a few pop acts, toured the world, moved to a farmhouse on a dirt road in Pennsylvania, started recording music, and finally ended up in Los Angeles.

Since then, Voytas has released a series of self-produced EPs and singles. His latest single, "I Run With You, Spirit Animal," is a 3-minute race through a magical realm. Set to a score of soaring synths, fun guitars, and fake-ass drums, Evan's lyrics typically address "feeling good" or "feeling bad," with underlying mystical themes of the unknown, nature, and outer space.

2010 SASQUATCH LINEUP ANNOUNCED

The 2010 Sasquatch! Music Festival will proudly feature the recently reunited Pavement, Massive Attack, My Morning Jacket, Ween, Vampire Weekend, MGMT, Kid Cudi, LCD Soundsystem, The National, Band of Horses and many others. With The Office’s Craig Robinson and The Daily Show’s Rob Riggle, this year’s Sasquatch! Festival also presents the best in up-and-coming comedic acts.

Please see below for the complete festival lineup and ticket information. Sasquatch! returns to The Gorge in Quincy, WA May 29-31 (Memorial Day Weekend) following early sellouts and rave reviews the past several years. Festival tickets are available at sasquatchfestival.com <http://sasquatchfestival.com/> and Ticketmaster.com.

Known for its bucolic location as well as its programming zeitgeist, the Sasquatch! Festival marks its ninth year at The Gorge, a concert venue built in the Columbia River Gorge and offering spectacular views of the river canyon. Tickets go on sale Saturday February 20 at 10 a.m. PST.Festival creator Adam Zacks founded Sasquatch! in 2002 with the aim of constructing an event that catered to the eclectic tastes of voracious music enthusiasts. Zacks personally curates the lineups for each Sasquatch! Festival, hand-picking the diverse array of artists. “It’s our goal each year to present a fresh lineup that reflects the independent spirit of the Pacific Northwest, respects the artists and audience, and celebrates the grandeur of The Gorge.”The Sasquatch! Festival has established a tradition of presenting critically acclaimed emerging artists alongside established headliners.

Previous lineups have spanned a broad spectrum of genres from rock to hip-hop, electronic to singer-songwriters; past performers include R.E.M. Coldplay, Kanye West, Beastie Boys, Nine Inch Nails, Wilco, The Flaming Lips, The Cure, Bj√∂rk, and M.I.A. The festival also has a history of incorporating comedy including performances by Flight of The Conchords, Zach Galifianakis, Sarah Silverman, and many more.Also included on this year’s agenda are continued greening initiatives with Esurance, the title sponsor for the 2010 festival. For the past three years, the auto insurance provider has teamed up with Sasquatch! to promote a greener festival. By increasing sustainable practices at the Gorge, including an expanded recycling program, eco-friendly signage, and energy-efficient lighting, they were able to reduce the overall carbon footprint at the venue as compared to previous years. As this year’s title sponsor, Esurance continues its drive toward a planet-friendly festival by offering numerous ridesharing options with carpool partner, Zimride. Beginning with the launch party in February and following through with the festival itself in May, Esurance makes it easy for folks to share a ride and minimize environmental impacts created by such a large event.

WORLD PREMIERE VIDEO - SEMI PRECIOUS WEAPONS

Watch the world premiere video for Semi Precious Weapons' single "Semi Precious Weapons" off their Geffen debut You Love You out this spring. Shot at NYC's Webster Hall last month, the video is a glimpse into the filthy and glamorous world of a band set to distort everything you think you know about rock 'n roll. Ditch the dustpan and save the bleach for your hair, because you can't fight the dirt at this party!
