ALBUM RELEASE OF 1939 ENSEMBLE'S 3rd LP «NEW CINEMA» and TWO NEW MUSIC VIDEOS SUPPORTING THE RECORD

1939 Ensemble:
Listening to 1939 Ensemble's «New Cinema» is like entering a futurist ballroom that is well traveled by post-rock attendees. The décor when you step inside is every bit as regal as it is experimental, placing you in a surreal vignette of sparsely used colors. All the elements involved make the music into a pictorial framing of time, both past and future. — Matt Carter

Blue Cranes:
Hailing from the fertile scene of Portland, Oregon, the Blue Cranes create music that is as invigorating as it is disarming. Consider this band a brainier kinfolk to the indie rock scene, with influences form rock and other areas, but with a solid foundation in the vocabulary of jazz. Working a thin line between improvisation and catchiness, Blue Cranes arrive at a unique place. They have found a way to make exploration seem like the most enjoyable process around.

Amenta Abioto:
Songwriter, producer, and actor, Amenta Abioto is on the cutting edge of all that is musical, theatrical, and literary. Her music is boldly mystical and soul-fired, and her raw live performances invoke elements of both theatrical surprise and magic through ancient African diasporic sounds and stories. Weaved into syncopated rhythms and dichotomies of comedic proportions, Amenta surprises and tantalizes audiences with mind bending ideas. She brings to the music scene funky academia while skipping vocally from soul shaking gospel to smooth jazz and then onto hip hop rhythms wrapped in West African beats.
