Sir Sly - (Set time: 11:15 PM)
Sir Sly
The mysteriosos behind Sir Sly are dark knights in the truest sense. Since first making their presence known last summer, the LA outfit have been running the tastemaker underworld with their monochromatic blend of vigilante pop, leaving onlookers with nothing more than a pair of explosive tracks and a hero-shaped shadow to go on. So it's with great pleasure that we're able to pull the curtain back today and unveil our next release, as we bring Sir Sly's debut 7" into the world on Neon Gold next month in conjunction with our UK sister label, National Anthem.

Sir Sly is not one sir but three - Landon Jacobs, Jason Suwito, and Hayden Coplen to be precise - who have been hard at work for the past few months writing, recording and producing all aspects of their debut offering in Suwito's studio. From the arresting cold open to the ever-restless denouement, lead A-single "Ghost" doesn't just pass our every litmus test, it passes right through it, swimming through a fog of wartorn synths and floating with timeless melancholy in an ocean of unforgotten pasts. Elsewhere, the vinyl's AA-side "Gold" - for which the band have put together the perfect visual accompaniment (below) - jangles with moody desperation and reckless abandon, while digital-only B-side "Where I'm Going" delves deeper into the depths of the trio's doom-and-gloom pop noir.

JMSN
Twenty-five year old Christian Berishaj has been performing since he was a teenager but only under the JMSN moniker for the past year. With the new name came a new, raw sound that reflects the darkest, most parts intimate of his soul and is already drawing him comparisons to the Weeknd and gaining him fans of the likes of Usher and other heavy-R&B-hitters. He released his first album as JMSN, Priscilla, in early 2012. Self-directed videos for "Alone", "Hotel" and "Something" were released to accompany the album's release.
The Last Royals
The Last Royals, a Brooklyn duo of writer/singer/producer Eric James and drummer Mason Ingram, formed in early 2010 after meeting and working together on a charity record with producer Mike Beck. James had at that point written and demoed a collection of songs on his own, a handful of which ultimately comprised TLR’s buzzed about EP released later that fall, but was still seeking a broader person...See More
