Happy new release day, everybody! Today is a big day for us. Not only did I get a free coffee today at the local coffee shop (which is a long, elaborate story I will discuss in the comments) but today we are giving away our newest release: Spanish American by The Seams! Included in the download are 9 tracks, liner notes, lyrics and hi-res album art.

The Seams are releasing their first full length record, Spanish American, through A&SB on Tuesday, March 9! The NYC duo is made up of former members of Down To Earth Approach (Vagrant), and spent the past year self producing the songs in a Brooklyn bedroom. We’re extremely excited to have them as part of the A&SB family and will be posting more release information soon. Head over to their page for track listing.
Oh and by “releasing” we mean GIVING THE RECORDS AWAY FOR FREE.
Today we are celebrating here at A&SB. Why? Because it’s new release day! Air & Sea Battle have partnered with one of our generations greatest song-writers, David Debiak, to release the new Sleep Station EP: Songs From The Highway Volume 1. You can purchase it now on iTunes! A little about the EP from Debiak himself:
“The songs were written on the road in various hotel rooms, rest stops, stranger’s floors etc… We would meet all kinds of people and this EP follows the life of a recovering addict who is driving his truck accross country… the songs are more or less his thoughts.”
Below you can stream the 2nd track on Volume 1, Gracie In My Dreams, exclusively on A&SB & don’t forget to download your copy on iTunes or Amazon.
With America shrouded by a thick noise of bombastic rhetoric that deifies the honor of war, its veterans quietly return home to deal with its silent pity. Sleep Station’sBlood of Our Fathers cuts through the noise of patriotic fervor, amplifying the quiet melancholy that too often marks a soldier’s return to a country equipped to deal with the myth of their sacrifice, but not its reality.
This 11-track LP is laced with catchy melodies that act as a thin layer of protection against the raw scars of families drifted apart and the stains of a comrade’s blood that can never be washed from a soldier’s memory. It’s understated and often ironically joyous instrumentation adeptly places these harrowing stories against a political climate that honors their sacrifice with cheap platitudes. Continue reading →
We would like to present to you the video for Sleep Station’s song “Brothers”. This diy video was directed by David Debiak and artistic mastermind Stephen Wuensch. Though it comes across very simple, this video says more than most big budget productions. Except for “Thriller”. That video was awesome.
