BAIO (Of Vampire Weekend)
This summer Baio released his sophomore solo album ‘Man of the World’ via Glassnote Records. The follow up to his debut album ‘The Names’, ‘Man of the World’ was written and recorded in Brixton, London by Chris Baio over the course of the past year. Co-produced by John Foyle and mixed by Bruce Lampcov (Bryan Ferry, The The), the album is a body of work that addresses themes of alienation, paranoia, and political will to power that are belied by airy melodies and a crystalline pop sheen.

One of his post poignant albums to date, both fans and critics have continuously pointed out the music’s unique ability to balance feelings of angst and apprehension with those of hope and optimism. Over the past few months Baio sat down with Billboard, The 405, VMAN, Relix and more to discuss how ‘Man of the World’ and its undeniable themes came to be.

The albums’ lead single PHILOSOPHY! is a deceptively buoyant break up song built on an irresistible groove that chronicles a terminal failure of communication. Upon release in May long time Baio supporters such as Pitchfork, NME, DIY, Stereogum and Baeble excitedly covered the track release which was deemed an “instant indie classic” by Wonderland Magazine and “a quirky indie funk treat that will get your hips moving and your shoulders shimmy-ing” by Acid Stag.

The track soon after received a video treatment from Dan Navetta who combined playfulness and sophistication to bring Baio’s lyrics, melody and vision to life. Featuring Baio’s signature dance moves and white suit, musical skeletons, spinning globes and close up frames, the video works to induce feelings of hopefulness in an otherwise uncertain and frenetic world.

Baio is now gearing up to take ‘Man of the World’ on the road for a series of summer headline tour dates in the U.S. and UK. Stay tuned for fall tour dates announcement coming soon.

Chris Baio is also the bass player for Grammy Award winning band, Vampire Weekend.
Teen Daze
Teen Daze (Jamison Isaak) is a British-Columbia based artist and producer. He released his fifth LP Themes For Dying Earth on February 10th through his new label, FLORA.

After last year's foray into vibrant indie-pop, Themes finds Teen Daze returning to more ambient, electronic production with new insight: "I learned so much from the experience making Morning World, it would be a step backwards if I didn't apply it." This comes through in songs like "Lost", "Rising" and the first single, "Cycle", which fuse the synthesized sound of early Teen Daze records with the live energy of his more recent works. Themes is also distinct in its collaborative nature. Jamison has worked with other artists in the past, but never to this degree and expanse: "Making the last record alongside other people helped me realize that inviting additional minds to the creative process brings out the best in me."

Conceptually and thematically, this album is one of Jamison's most personal, navigating topics both intimate and broad: "Much of my work is inspired by nature, and it's scary to think that future generations may not have that same relationship. The album starts with Cycle, a song about my personal experience dealing with anxiety and depression, and it slowly zooms out to cover some of the external forces, like climate change, that are affecting those experiences. After touring last fall, I came home so cynical and worn out, I decided take all the nervous energy I had about the world, and filter it through more optimistic, positive sounds."
