SC Publishing Welcomes Tomas Barfod

Very honored to announce that Tomas Barfod has joined the SC Publishing roster. Tomas first caught out attention in 2012 with his debut solo album, a sophisticated mesh of electronics called Salton Sea. Lauded by the likes of Pitchfork, Dazed & Confused and Gorilla vs Bear, the acclaim took Barfod slightly by surprise but its success has paved the way for the follow-up, Love Me, an album that takes Barfod’s spirit of adventurousness and raises the stakes. Utilising a supporting cast that includes a string and brass section, and musicians like Here We Go Magic’s Luke Temple and long-term collaborator Nina K. on vocal duties, it’s a multi-layered album that effortlessly pushes and pulls dance and electronic music into a myriad different shapes. Love Me will be released June 10th, 2014 via Secretly Canadian.

SC Publishing Welcomes Dub Thompson

Pleased to announce that Dub Thompson (aka Matt Pulos and Evan Laffer) have joined the SC Publishing fold. The 19 year olds will release their debut album  9 Songs via Dead Oceans on June 10th, 2014. Recorded with Foxygen’s Jonathan Rado, the album is crammed with intense blasts of hook-filled noise rock (“Hayward!”), rocksteady marionette stomp (“No Time”), hypnotic bouts of doomy poetics (“Epicondyles”), and outlandishly sexy groove rock (“Dograces”). Stay tuned for more from Dub Thompson.

Mark McGuire joins the SC Publishing family

We’re very excited to announce the addition of Mark McGuire to the SC Publishing family. The songwriter / producer / ambient musician’s most recent addition to his prolific catalogue is 2014′s Along The Way (released on Dead Oceans). This is Mark’s first album since leaving his former band, the much loved midwestern, drone wunderkid trio Emeralds, in early 2013. The kaleidoscopic Along The Way displays his own unique take on modern psychedelia. When not recording his own projects, the 26 year old has found himself collaborating with the likes of Afghan Whigs and ambient pioneer Iasos. Most recently Mark has relocated to LA to score the film Get A Job starring Anna Kendrick, Bryan Cranston and Miles Teller.

Richard Swift Joins Secretly Canadian Publishing

It is with ample excitement that SCP announces the recent signing of Secretly Canadian artist since 2005, Richard Swift. Praised for his production and sound engineering work, Swift has produced material for bands including but not limited to The Shins, Damien Jurado, The Mynabirds, Foxygen, Jessie Baylin, and Laetitia Sadier of Stereolab.

Currently a multi-instrumentalist of indie-rock band The Shins, Swift has certainly carved out a niche as one of independent music’s most sought after session players and producers — and especially in relation to the astounding Richard Swift solo output we all know and love.
