Little Green Cars
Glassnote Records is proud to announce the newest addition to the independent label's roster with the signing of Dublin, Ireland based band Little Green Cars.

Growing up together in Dublin, Little Green Cars came together five years ago at the tender age of 15 to begin crafting their emotionally charged rock songs. With influences ranging from early REM, to Elliott Smith and Woody Guthrie, Little Green Cars' sound is accomplished and belies their young ages of just 20. The band spent the summer recording their debut album with renowned producer Markus Dravs (Mumford & Sons, Arcade Fire, Bjork, Coldplay) for release early next year.

Currently preparing to make their North American debut, Little Green Cars will be releasing 'The John Wayne' as a digital single on Glassnote Records through all digital service providers. The song will also be released on a limited edition 7" with B-side 'Witching Hour.'

'The John Wayne' is streaming now on YouTube via this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ua7OT1nmWFU&feature=youtu.be

Little Green Cars land on US soil in October for select dates across North America, including the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in San Francisco, CA before making their way to New York City for the CMJ Music Marathon. All confirmed dates are below with more information on CMJ shows to be announced shortly.

Little Green Cars are:
Stevie Appleby - Vocals/Guitar
Faye O'Rourke - Vocals/Guitar
Donagh Seaver O'Leary - Bass/Vocals
Adam O'Regan - Guitar/Vocals
Dylan Lynch - Drums/Vocals

Rocky and the Pressers
Rocky and the Pressers
Rocky and The Pressers is a seven piece contemporary reggae band based in The Bronx, New York. The Pressers refresh the traditional genre tropes with lush vocal harmonies and flares of American folk, jazz and soul music. In September 2011, they began tracking the basic rhythm section elements for their forthcoming debut record, on a remote island in coastal Maine. Since then, working from a home studio, they have crafted thirteen original compositions. Firstly they over-dubbed the necessary elements like keyboards, percussion and vocals, then expanded into the orchestral palette, employing horn players from Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings and Antibalas, and violinists The Villalobos Brothers. This additional musicianship helps to compel a listener through lengthier pieces, if the lyrics and voices delivering them weren’t compelling enough. The result is rhythmically rooted and easily identifiable as reggae, and should satisfy, even delight purists. Yet, content is topically atypical and makes no mention of expected themes; Rastafari, ganja, revolution. Never wishing to be pigeon holed, Rocky and The Pressers sing about what they do know and take loving care of a musical style which could be seen as misappropriated in their hands.
