For all those times is that what you get? Oh regardless The walls get painted anyway Oh you're guarding The gates, but it all got away Your trojan's in my head Take it off Take it in Take off all the thoughts of what we've been Take a look Hesitate Take a picture you could never recreate Write a song make a note for the lump that sits inside your throat Change the locks, change the scene Change it all but can't change what we've been About Atlas Genius- The members of Adelaide, Australia’s Atlas Genius do things a little differently….They set about building a studio where they could write and record music for their newly formed band 3 years before they even played their first live show as Atlas Genius. For two years, they devoted their days to constructing their dream studio and spent their nights performing songs by The Police, The Beatles and The Rolling Stones at local pubs to pay the bills. “We really got down and dirty with dry walling and literally laying the floorboards, and at the same time we were taking a couple of days a week to focus on writing songs,” recalls Keith Jeffery, Atlas Genius’s vocalist/guitarist. "We had a lot of song ideas and it was important to us to have our own studio where we could experiment and hone in on our sound," adds brother and drummer, Michael Jeffery. The studio was designed and outfitted by the brothers with the help of their father (who comes from a music and engineering background). Once the studio was complete, the first song that Atlas Genius finished was a song called “Trojans,” which they wrote, recorded and produced in collaboration with their friend, keyboardist Darren Sell. After many weeks tweaking the song, Michael insisted that the song was ready to be heard outside of the studio walls. Within an hour, “Trojans” was on the Triple J Unearthed Website, SoundCloud, and for sale via TuneCore on iTunes, Amazon and Spotify worldwide. “We had begun to think that music was a pipedream and we had all gone back to university to pursue more realistic careers,” says Keith. “We’d had such a long slog of playing late nights and working all day, and it felt like we didn’t really have anything to show for it.” But then, in the midst of cramming for their Fall 2011 semester final exams, Neon Gold discovered “Trojans” on the Triple J Unearthed Website and wrote a post praising “Trojans” as a song sure to “invade your head, all dressed up in a clever disguise of earnest vocals riding a hooky riff.” Checking the band’s email account for the first time in over a month, the band found that dozens of record labels, publishers, lawyers, booking agents and management companies from all over the world had contacted them. “We were trying to focus on school, but it was just impossible,” recalls Keith. “So we said, ‘There’s something going on here. Let’s get back to the music.’” The band added manager, Jonny Kaps from +1, to their extended family to navigate all of the interest as the band focused on writing and recording more songs. Quickly named an iTunes Single of the Week in Australia and New Zealand, “Trojans” reached #4 on Hype Machine by the end of May. In August, SiriusXM Satellite Radio’s Alt-Nation discovered the song on a blog and decided to give it some spins. There was an immediate reaction from listeners, and in September, “Trojans” was placed into heavy rotation, where it maintained a top-five position on the listener-generated Alt-18 countdown and peaked at number one for 4 consecutive weeks in January 2012. “Trojans” began selling over a thousand tracks per week on U.S. iTunes and soon climbed to 45,000 sales - all with zero promotional efforts from the still-unsigned Atlas Genius. “Knowing we had this audience that was waiting on new songs, we had a much greater sense of purpose than we had before,” says Keith. “It was really exciting to know that there were people who wanted to hear more of our music.” Although labels were clamoring for the band to come to the U.S. and play a series of showcase gigs, Atlas Genius turned down those offers in favor of staying in Adelaide to keep writing and recording new songs. In February 2012, after months of communicating with numerous labels via Skype, the band chose to travel to the US in order to make their label decision. “We’d never been to America before,” says Keith. “We flew in at night and saw this sea of lights, and it really became apparent to us how massive the U.S. is. It was pretty intimidating - like ‘How do we fit into all this?’” In April 2012, the band returned to the states having made their decision to sign with Warner Bros. Records. “We felt a connection with them,” notes Keith. “Everyone there feels very creative and dedicated to the music.” The band’s first release from their new label home, the EP Through The Glass (produced, engineered and mixed by the band), came out in June of 2012. With Through The Glass completed, Atlas Genius then holed up in its studio and worked on writing and recording its first full-length album, while at the same time rehearsing for their first ever tour. The tour started in August 2012 and led to three more tours back to back taking them thru to the end of the year. Thus, their full-length debut was finished up between tour dates and got completed just before Christmas 2012. When It Was Now is set for a US release on February 19th, 2013, with an international release to follow soon after. The debut captures Atlas Genius’s singular combination of sophisticated musicality and warm, wistful spirit. Infused with a classic sensibility, each of the songs would fit seamlessly if somehow slipped into a long-treasured mixtape. On the shimmering “Symptoms,” for instance, taut keyboard riffs mesh with urgent acoustic strumming before the band bursts into a gently frenetic, guitar-drenched chorus. Meanwhile, “Back Seat” blends its pulsing bass throb with a sweetly infectious beat and tender vocals that alternately soar and sigh. And on “Trojans,” Atlas Genius begins with a restrained guitar melody and vocal (“Take it off, take it in/Take off all the thoughts of what we’ve been”) before giving way to the handclap-accented, harmony-soaked refrain and lush yet kinetic bridge. “It’s still surreal,” says Keith of all that’s happened over the past 18 months. “I think when we were very young, we had hopes that something like this might happen one day,” he continues. (Thanks largely to encouragement from their Beatles fanatic parents, who encouraged the brothers to begin playing music by age 14.) “But then you grow up a bit and it seems less and less likely. So when we put ‘Trojans’ out, we figured it would be a success if maybe a hundred people heard it. We don’t want to force our music onto anyone. Our goal is to write songs that we love and we hope they connect with other people too.”

edit/update: the person who this song was originally written about is now essentially devoid of respect and likability in my eyes, so now it's a ballad for all of the lovers out there who aren't fucking each other over. good riddance, s. thanks, p. thanks, world. [peace.love.happiness]

such nice sounds (prod. mt. marcy)

@mt-marcy LYRICS: i'm sick of trembling in fear at the idea of death since it's always on my mind i just hide in my bed "everybody's scared of it" is what my therapist said but my case seems worse, when i've barely been fed because the kitchen's too far to desire the steps it'd take to make it down the stairs and try to find a baguette or something similar that wouldn't make my stomach upset it doesn't feel like this is real, yeah, my mind is a mess the only times it seems clear is when music is played some relatable creator says i'll soon be okay or when reading poetry trying to soothe the dismay and i can lose my insecurities in cute little sayings, like "why frown when the sun goes down, if you'll wake in the morning to such nice sounds when the nighttime creeps, well your eyes might weep but that's just moonlight tryna find nice people" "why frown when the sun comes 'round even if you feel shaken or upside down when the daytime hits, you'll be great, my friend just make it through this, just make it through this" "why frown when the sun comes 'round even if you feel shaken or upside down when the daytime hits, you'll be great, my friend just make it through this, you can make it through this"

Premiere: Stephan Bodzin & Marc Romboy 'Atlas (Adriatique Remix)

http://www.mixmag.net/index.php/read/stephan-bodzin-marc-romboy-adriatique-remix-premieres Released back in 2006, 'Atlas' has reached its ten year anniversary and what better way to celebrate than with some shiny new remixes? From one duo another, Swiss pair Adriatique have swapped DIYmanic for devilish with their new re-imagining. They've taken the techno bruiser and turned into a twinkly builder, one that keeps intact all of the components that make the original so good. The colossal main riff is still there, creating a nice amount of dread while tones flutter innocently in the background.

valentine (prod. flavors)

@flayvors happy valentine's day :) art by bennie (http://www.instagram.com/cozylile) this is a thank you for everything a semi-colon hovering where something once was menacing a "soon-to-be continued" that exists after the ending screen the only song i know that i would ever even wish to sing when the heat is blistering, you're the ice that's glistening inside my cup of tea, which is also you... interesting throughout all the seasons, in this transition of winter-spring you've been here beside me with the sweet nothings you're whispering you're a lovable, angelic piece of perfect and anything i do for you is worth it times a million and a half, we can sit and be resilient and laugh in between the subtle compliments and billlions of half- kiss/half-hug/half-cuddle moments we share i know it's unfair that we could only spend a few days here but i'm yours, and i think that it's clear so forget about goodbye, this is "see you soon, my dear" 'cause i love you and i'd like to spend forever in the sublte warmth inside your arms, like fireplaces' embers i will try my best to keep you by my side until the weather turns apocalyptic, and we end up drifting to the nether but we'd still be wearing sweaters when we got there 'cause we're both too caught up in cuteness to care 'bout hot air and even if it burnt me alive, i'd have my crosshairs set up on your heart, making art, 'cause why stop there? i'll keep on creating for you until my final days dancing in the living room and smooching while the vinyl plays i've been losing track of the romantic shit i'm tryna say but basically i love you and that's kinda gay... i'ma stay by your side when i can keep your grip on my hand 'cause we can both hear the compliments coming in from these pals of mine i've been wondering if you would be my valentine
