Fruit Bats
Fruit Bats
After two and a half years of solid touring on the critical success of Absolute Loser, Fruit Bats is getting in a van again with its new single and announcement of signing with Merge Records. “Getting In A Van Again” is accompanied by a short film by director Jonny Look, which documents Eric D. Johnson in the studio with fictional emotional engineer Baron Levi and his quest to find the perfect sound. A new album will follow in 2019.
Springtime Carnivore
In 2004 while still in high school, Greta Morgan was a founding member of The Hush Sound and found herself on tour at sixteen opening for artists such as One Republic, Fall Out Boy, OK GO, and The All American Rejects.

"Springtime Carnivore was born on the night of a full moon in the summer of the year of the dragon. She is the seventh of twelve siblings. Her father was a painter and her mother baked wedding cakes. Her favorite color is turquoise. Her favorite food is purple Pez. In a past life she slept beneath the stars in far away Western places and died in a gun fight with Annie Oakley.

Following high school, Springtime Carnivore joined a traveling circus company. She was a talented and nimble acrobat but her career was cut short by a tragic tightrope accident. "We had been traveling for days trying to maintain our schedule and we were all sick and tired and lonesome," she recently wrote in a letter to her fans. "One night during a show in Twin Falls, Idaho, my energy was all used up and I made a misstep on the tightrope. Long story short, I fell three stories and broke my fibula."

Although the tightrope incident killed Springtime's big top dreams, it opened the door to another dormant aspiration. "While my poor leg was healing I discovered an old piano in the attic of my great great grandma's second's cousin's third husband's house. I dusted it off, paid a blind man to tune it by ear and I've been playing ever since. Inside me were all these songs about all these things I've seen and all these places I've been. Just came pouring out like tears."

The result of Springtime's latent piano passions can be heard on this first release from the young songstress. Brought to you by LebensStrasse. Available all places cool discs are sold."
