Peach Pit 2021 Tour

By Hannah DiPilato

The popular musical group Peach Pit has announced rescheduled tour dates for their North American Headline tour. They are also set to release the deluxe version of their sophomore album You and Your Friends on October 2nd. 

Peach Pit hosted a Live Nation virtual concert where they announced the new dates for their headline tour which will now take place in 2021. Originally scheduled for spring 2020, the tour had to be pushed back a year due to the ongoing pandemic. Fortunately, most of the shows have a new date so fans can still watch the group perform when it is safe. 

The band’s tour will now begin on Monday, March 1, 2021, with the first performance to take place in Victoria, BC. This tour will be hitting larger venues, such as NY’s Brooklyn Steel and LA’s Fonda Theatre which currently has two nights scheduled. A few new shows have been added for fans in Ottawa, ON, Buffalo, NY, Richmond, VA, Asheville, NC, Columbus, OH, Austin, Houston and Dallas, TX. Unfortunately, the shows at Off Broadway Nightclub in St. Louis, MO and The Bowery Ballroom in New York, NY have been canceled, but refunds are being offered for these shows by point of purchase. Luckily for fans, tickets that were purchased for shows are now able to be used for the rescheduled dates. The new tour dates and ways to purchase tickets can be found on Peach Pit’s website

“We’re so excited to announce the rescheduled and new tour dates for 2021,” expressed band member Neil Smith while announcing the tour. “Assuming that guidance from our public health officials tells us it’s safe to be on the road, we can’t wait to get out and make up for lost time and play the songs from You and Your Friends live.”

The deluxe version of Peach Pit’s album You and Your Friends is set to be released on October 2 via Columbia Records. The deluxe version of the album will feature three songs not found on the original. These tracks include “Adidas,” “Denny’s Garage,” and “Psychics in LA,” and have been highly awaited by fans. The band has been performing “Physics in LA” at live shows for the past year so this song especially listeners have been on the lookout for. 

To keep up with Peach Pit you can follow them on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook as well as going on their website.

MUST-SEE EXHIBITS
Stevan Dohanos painting, “Tex’s Motorcycle”
Dohanos, a frequent contributor to the “Saturday EveningPost,” enjoyed capturing his subjects as they were in real life. For this piece, Dohanos found his muse on a street in Georgetown, Conn. “Tex” Keller had decorated his saddle bags with nickel spots and covered his saddle with fur, putting his own flair on the Harley-Davidson motorcycle. Though Dohanos probably didn’t title the work, many motorcyclists now refer to it as “Tex’s Motorcycle” and prints of it can be found in shops across the country. The original has found a home at the H-D Museum.

“Building a Milwaukee Icon: Harley-Davidson’s Juneau Avenue Factory” (open now)
A recently recovered cache of architectural drawings includes plans for the original Juneau Avenue facility. The pencil drawings, along with archival photographs, demonstrate the whirlwind pace of the company’s early growth. While building an international business—going from producing just over 1,000 motorcycles in 1909 to manufacturing 27,000 motorcycles in 1920—the company’s Milwaukee factory experienced near-constant expansion. Construction through this relatively brief period created the buildings that today, a century later, are still the proud home of Harley-Davidson.

“Building a Milwaukee Icon” provides a snapshot of Harley-Davidson’s formative years and illustrates a chapter of Milwaukee history when the city was known as the “Machine Shop to the World.”

Taming the Road in Style 
Closes Nov. 8
The earliest Harley-Davidson motorcycles had the same suspensions as bicycles of the time: none at all. The roads were a hodgepodge of dirt, stone, and other materials. Bumps were everywhere; suspension was needed. Comfort became a never-ending challenge for Harley-Davidson engineers. It was redefined by each new generation of rider and changing environments: over the decades, roads were paved, engine power and speed increased, and motorcyclists traveled faster over longer distances and craved smoother rides.  In response, Harley improved the seats, redesigned many frames, or added new suspension systems. Sometimes these changes were small, sometimes dramatic. These tweaks and additions added up over the years. The first Harley-Davidson vehicles resembled bicycles. Years later, bicycles and motorcycles looked nothing alike. The pursuit of comfort had transformed motorcycles. Taming the Road in Style examines this history, from the dawn of the bicycle to the launch of the new Harley-Davidson Softail models. 

SAVE THE DATE
“Off-Road Harley-Davidson”
Opening Nov. 21, 2020
In the decades before America paved its highways, early riders had to be prepared for all sorts of terrain: sand, clay or dirt – and wandering those makeshift byways were Harley-Davidson motorcycles. Today, it’s called off-road or adventure touring; back then it was just called riding. Since 1903, Harley-Davidson motorcycles proved their toughness by riding over wooded hills, through stone-choked creek beds and up mountain sides. “Off-road Harley-Davidson” tells the history of motorcycles designed for rough roads, the people who rode them and the adventures they shared.

N.Peal Launches 007 Collection During NYFW

N.PEAL LAUNCHES WOMENS 007 CASHMERE COLLECTION DESIGNED IN CONJUNCTION WITH EON PRODUCTIONS, MAKERS OF THE JAMES BOND FILMS. N.PEAL DELVED INTO THE BOND ARCHIVES TO SELECT A SERIES OF ICONIC LOOKS FROM ACROSS THE PAST 50 YEARS AND REIMAGINED THEM FOR TODAY.

Exclusive cashmere knitwear brand N.Peal is delighted to announce the launch of the first ever 007 women’s cashmere collection presented exclusively on NYFW.COM

James Bond films have always placed women at the heart of the action. From the very outset, allies such as Honey Ryder (Dr. No) and Pussy Galore (Goldfinger) have proved themselves resilient and skillful.The films have since created numerous female characters that live long in the memory, including Tracy Di Vicenzo (On Her Majesty’s Secret Service), May Day (A View To A Kill) and Jinx (Die Another Day), to name a few.The Bond films have also featured powerful female adversaries whose intellect and inventiveness have tested 007’s mettle.

To celebrate all of these iconic women, N.Peal has delved into the Bond archives to select seven classic looks from across the past 50 years and reimagined them for today. Finding inspiration in the shirt worn by Honey Ryder in Dr No (1962) to a deep V neck sweater worn by Holy Goodhead in Moonraker (1979).

The range is supported by two key pieces N.Peal designed and created in collaboration with No Time To Die Costume Designer, Suttirat Anne Larlarb. A Moorland Brown 100% cashmereT-shirt worn by the character Madeleine Swann and the Unisex Navy Blue ribbed army sweater worn by the character James Bond in the film and in the striking character poster. “The N.Peal team worked with my brief, which consisted of detailed photographs of authentic sweaters and several samples of extant vintage pieces, as well as colour thoughts and technical specs” Larlarb says. “When you are dealing with the number of decisions you have to make on a Bond film, with so many important characters and so many vital items of clothing, having a collaboration like the one we had with N.Peal was a godsend.”

N.Peal previously worked with the filmmakers on Skyfall (2012), providing a Blue Wave Roundneck Sweater for Bond and on Spectre (2015), supplying 007 with a superfine cashmereTurtleneck and a light grey Rollneck.

Tune In Tonight for Lil Baby’s Performance at Howard U

Rap Life, Apple Music’s industry leading hip-hop playlist, will feature an important and meaningful live event captured on the campus of Howard University – one of the most historic and prestigious HBCU (historically black colleges and universities) in the world. This special live-streamed event aims to further extend the discussion around the many important issues impacting the Black community through open dialogue, important conversations, and the power of music.

Hosted by Apple Music’s global head of Hip-Hop and R&B, Ebro Darden along with Apple Music 1 hosts Nadeska and LowKey, the event will feature intimate conversations and bespoke performances from beloved rappers Lil Baby, Nas, Rapsody and Wale. As the events of 2020 continue to reveal the broken systems within our society, these artists stand out as incredibly passionate and outspoken advocates for their community, using both their music and social influence to promote issues like police reform, racial and gender equality, social justice, and standing up to racism.

“The Rap Life team’s main objective was to use our voice and tools to show support and solidarity with students, artists and activists around the nation rising up to make sure the world knows that Black Lives Matter,” Ebro said “We plan to bring Rap Life Live to more HBCU campuses because these institutions are part of the backbone of Black communities and Hip-Hop is from the Black experience.”

When asked why he wanted to participate, Lil Baby said, “I feel like we got a long way to go. I’d be lying if I said we are getting there. Don’t get me wrong it’s a start, but it’s going to take some time for this to work out.”

Wale said, “Black people need to understand and hear each other, combine our messaging and give it to the world.”

Rapsody said, “our voice is our biggest weapon. You have to speak up for what you want. You have to be the change. Speak to each other. Speak up, let people hear you.”

Nas said, “Whatever is going on in society, affects people. People affect society. And People are going to speak and artists are going to make art.”

Additionally, Rap Life Live will feature sit down interviews with Howard University students – including student association president Rachel Howell, Miss Howard University Taylor Davis and president of the 10for10 organization Peter Lubembela – providing a global platform to empower the next generation of leaders as they discuss how they are working to inspire, educate, unite and uplift their communities.

Tune in to the very first Rap Life Live Friday September 18, at 7 pm PT only on Apple Music HERE

ABOUT RAP LIFE

Rap Life Live is an extension of Apple Music’s popular Rap Life playlist and companion radio show- both situated at the forefront of hip-hop culture, connecting and engaging the black community through music. This week, our Rap Life playlist spotlights artists who are using their music to entertain, inform, and heal during this time of ongoing uncertainty.

*Every precaution was taken during the filming of Rap Life Live to ensure the safety of the staff, crew and presenters in accordance with both national and local COVID-19 guidelines, including daily health screenings, face coverings, and regular thorough cleanings of the facilities.

Sasha Sloan – Is It Just Me?

Critically acclaimed singer/songwriter Sasha Sloan unveils new track “Is It Just Me?” today. This is the 3rd track to be released from her upcoming debut album, Only Child, which will be released on October 16th, 2020 via RCA Records (pre-order it NOW!). Listen HERE.

“Is It Just Me?” is full of Sasha’s candid and witty observations and brilliantly sharp and relatable lyrics that her fans relish. It follows the release of the poignant and brutally honest self-reflective track “House With No Mirrors” which Idolator called “…stunning…” and the critically praised first single “Lie” which has been called a  “…bittersweet bop…” by Idolator and declared a “…straight up radio hit…” by Billboard.

Sasha will be performing “Lie” on NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on September 24th.

Additionally, Sasha has opened a fan community forum  that can be accessed by calling the number at the end of the “Lie” music video. Once in the community fans can leave Sasha notes, poems, lyrics and more which she will read and interact with providing an outlet for those who wish to express themselves through their creativity.

ABOUT SASHA SLOAN

After emerging in 2017 and appearing on a handful of high-profile collaborations, 25-year-old singer/songwriter Sasha Sloan released her debut single “Ready Yet.” Since then, she has established herself as a true wordsmith, an artist’s artist, who crafts potent melodies filled with poignant lyrics. As a songwriter Sasha has amassed over 3.5 billion streams by penning hits for some of today’s biggest artists. In 2018 Sasha released her first two EPs, Sad Girl and Loser. Her track “Normal” has been heralded by Billboard as a “catchy introvert anthem.”  These emotionally-rich, left-of-center pop releases lead to her late night debut on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert in 2019 with a performance of “Older.” That year, Sasha completed her first North American and European headline tours (sold out) and released her 3rd and final EP Self Portrait, which had her single “Dancing With Your Ghost” as Idolator’s 6th “75 Best Pop Songs Of 2019.” She also recently scored a #1 on the Dance Chart for “I’ll Wait,” her collaboration with Kygo. Remarkably before she has released a debut album, Sasha has garnered over 2 billion streams worldwide to date.

UPCOMING EVENTS & PROJECTS

Earlier this month, Oakley® unveiled their powerful remake of Bob Marley’s iconic anthem – One Love – as part of the brand’s 2020 For the Love of Sport Campaign. The official release aims to inspire hope and positivity during a time of uncertainty by celebrating sport, and how it can enlighten and uplift. The reworked verses were co-written by Oakley Athletes, including Diamond DeShields, Ryan Sheckler, Oksana Masters, Caroline Buchanan, and Ítalo Ferreira and performed by American-born, British-Jamaican singer-songwriter, Celeste. This reinterpretation evolves the classic song into a modern-day love story, amplified by an official music video that showcases a dynamic display of passion and determination as viewers follow athletes’ individual journeys and the way sport has impacted their lives and the people around them. Listen HERE. Watch the video HERE.

Making the most of its oversize pages, the book is designed as a monument to Marley’s influence, mixing the iconic and the intimate, bringing together striking images of his on-stage performances, along with glimpses into his creative process in and out of the studio, and family life in Jamaica.

About the release, Ziggy Marley said, “I am blessed to present to you this very special collection of photographs from our archives. There is a cliché term, “a picture is worth a thousand words.” From my experience of looking through hundreds and hundreds of photos for this book, I will say, yes, it is true.” For more details, click HERE:

Joseph Black × Luh Kel – Homesick

Today, the rapper/singer/songwriters Joseph Black and Luh Kel share their new emotionally charged single “Homesick.” Released via Untold Stories/Electric Feel/Capitol Records, “Homesick” reveals Blackߣs incredible gift for merging heart-on-sleeve storytelling with hard-hitting beats. Listen HERE and watch the lyric video HERE.

With its potent rhythm and haunting piano work, “Homesick” brings Black’s melodic flow to a high-impact track detailing his experience in heartbreak and betrayal. The song’s moody intensity is perfectly amplified by a soul-stirring verse from Luh Kel, a St. Louis-born rapper/singer/songwriter known for his gold-certified 2019 single “Wrong.”

“My life took a change for the better which caused me to move away. Now I am homesick for a person, and that’s what I expressed when I made this,” says Joseph Black “It doesn’t matter where I am in the world, you are my home and without you I am homesick.”

Bittersweet but undeniably catchy, “Homesick” spotlights the raw emotion Black has previously brought to tracks like his recent single “see you later” and his hit record “(i hope you) miss me.” A breakup anthem released on Valentine’s Day, the latter became a major phenomenon on TikTok thanks to a trend ironically started by the very ex for whom Black wrote the song on. Now at over 60million global streams, “(i hope you) miss me” also landed in the top 5 on Spotify’s US Viral 50 chart and garnered over a 3 million TikTok creates.

ABOUT JOSEPH BLACK

A 22-year-old self-made rapper, singer, and producer, Joseph Black is on a mission to make it. Thanks to his DIY hustle and tremendous talent, he first cracked the mainstream with “(i hope you) miss me,” a painfully honest breakup anthem released in early 2019. Hailing from Duluth, Minnesota, Black had a chaotic upbringing that included growing up poor and frequently getting into fights at school before eventually dropping out. At age 15 the self-taught musician began exploring his creative side, inspired by an eclectic mix of artists ranging from Eminem and Lil Wayne to a number of country singer/songwriters. For several years he turned to the lawless, drug-ridden streets of his city, but never stopped pursuing his passion for music. With a sound that’s a virtual Pandora’s box just as likely to deliver a melodic banger, street anthem, or turnt-up-party-jam. Black is on the verge of a breakout and hopes his music offers others the same solace it’s always given him.

deryk – goodtimes

Auckland-based, UK-born newcomer deryk first arrested us with her affecting voice on her debut single “Call You Out” earlier this summer. She has since shared the moving follow up “One Star,” alongside announcing plans for her debut EP release WOMb out on October 2nd.

The EP focus track, “goodtimes” is a heart-on-sleeve account of a time in deryk’s life that she invites us to share with her. The song, which is at times almost uncomfortably intimate, succinctly showcases her impeccable ability to harness a mature understanding of life’s common experiences. A tale of heartache and lessons learnt, “goodtimes” manages to be both melancholic and uplifting—like only the best multidimensional pop music can.

LISTEN TO “goodtimes” HERE!

“‘goodtimes’ is about not being able to reminisce or enjoy looking back on a time period in your life because it turned out to be a complete waste of time. It’s like Good Times, except the tainted, bitter version. I don’t believe in regret because ‘everything is a learning experience blah blah blah’ but reminiscing and only seeing your oblivious, vulnerable self. Wearing rose tinted glasses can be self-destructive. Accepting defeat and letting ‘the goodtimes go’ is a healthy next step. At least you know better now,” says deryk.

The sound of deryk is unique and captivating, molding distinctive, rhythmic vocal phrasings and visceral lyrics around craftily submerged melodies and ghostly modular tones. Slow music for fast times, space and solace amongst the confusion, a gentle reveal in the age of instant gratification, mordant lines over sumptuous melodies—deryk is something special.

deryk is heavily influenced by British culture in all aspects for her creativity thanks to her mum. Musically, she draws inspiration from powerful female artists like PJ Harvey, Fiona Apple, Esperanza Spalding, Kate Bush, Joni Mitchell and Bjork, as well as her love for Bristol and its culture in the 90’s, deryk has crafted her own sound that feels utterly contemporary while still retaining a hazy, timeless quality. Contributing to that is production and writing spar, Justyn Pilbrow, whose extensive experience with artists like The Neighbourhood, Chelsea Jade and Halsey helped deryk capture her vision.
