Listen to an amazing new collaboration: the new TOBACCO remix of JUNIP's "Your Life Your Call", listenable below via SoundCloud!

The band are on tour right now in Europe - all tourdates in our tourdates section



We are happy to share with you the new Junip single, "Your Life, Your Call" off of their self-titled sophomore release available April 22nd via City Slang. While the pulsating beat and overall flow of the track might be a departure for González and crew the message remains poignantly and traditionally steeped in Junip sensitivity. Armed with a chorus that rings brightly through, “It’s your life, it’s your call/Stand up, or enjoy your fall” Junip delivers what this threesome does best, heartfelt messages that are applicable to any listener’s life experiences. Charging down a new trail González explains it best,  “It felt like trying on new clothes when we first listened to it – it took a while to get comfortable with it, but now I like it a lot.” 



CITY SLANG is deeply honored to announce the signing of Anna Von Hausswolff and the consequential release of her opus that is ’CEREMONY’ on June 17th 2013 in Europe (Excluding Scandinavia)

And in classic CITY SLANG fashion, we unleash the most impressive track of the record, DEATHBED, which also happens to be the longest piece of music to come out this year. Make sure you hang on through the entire 9 minutes, as the end result is nothing short of amazing. More below, including some highly-anticipated April tourdates, but first let AVH speak for herself:


It’s very rare that a record seemingly comes out of nowhere and then completely floors you with it’s supernatural yet inherent power and uncompromised attitude. One of these records is Anna Von Hausswolffs' ’CEREMONY’. Its power lies within the naturally flowing, yet unmistakable pristine and precise arrangements led by a mighty church Organ and one of the most awe-inspiring voices we have heard in ages.

To those who lazily compared Anna Von Hausswolff’s debut album, 'Singing From The Grave', to Kate Bush, it will come as a brutal shock. The fragile atmospheres of that impressive debut, one that earned her huge acclaim in her native Sweden, have been blasted away and what’s emerged from the wasteland left behind is a dizzying masterpiece that, she proudly states, calls upon, amongst others, Elizabeth Fraser, Jefferson Airplane, PJ Harvey, Earth, Barn Owl, Nick Cave and Diamanda Galás.
