Diamond Rings brings "Free Dimensional" to The Lodge

Toronto electro artist and Youtube sensation Diamond Rings is gearing up for the release of his highly anticipated sophomore album "Free Dimensional" on October 22nd (via Astralwerks).  The album was mastered by Emily Lazar and her team at The Lodge earlier this year.

John O'Reagan (also known as John O) got his start in the Toronto suburbs, playing music with his best friends in the acclaimed indie rock band The D'Ubervilles while majoring in art at the University of Guelph.  After getting a taste of the city life and delving further into expressionistic art projects with friends he decided to ditch the indie rocker life and partnered with his professional makeup artist/stylist cousin and choreographer roommate to come up with his gender-bending current alter ego as Diamond Rings.

Juxtaposing pop with hardcore electro and a little bit of glam, Diamond Rings recorded, produced & released his first album all by himself and received an overwhelming fan response to his over the top videos on Youtube.  This eventually led to a SXSW showcase as well as some incredible opening gigs for artists such as La Roux and Owen Pallett.  For his second album, Diamond Rings teamed up with producer Damian Taylor (Bjork, Prodigy, The Killers) and the result is an expansive & heavily thematic electro/pop record with a wide range of soundscapes that appeal to John O's influences growing up.

And check out his 45 minute live performance on KCRW's "Morning Becomes Eclectic" where he debuts several tracks from the new album

Dum Dum Girls Release New EP

Dum Dum Girls are on a streak outputting some of indie music's dreamiest 60's inspired pop music.  Their new EP "End of Daze" (considered some of lead singer Dee Dee's best song writing) was recently named Best New Music on Pitchfork!

"End of Daze" follows up the band's 2011 full length "Only in Dreams" and marks their fourth release mastered at The Lodge. The EP was recorded throughout 2011 and 2012 with Sune Rose Wagner (The Raveonettes), Dum Dum Girls' longtime producer Richard Gottehrer and Alonzo Vargas on mixing duties. It includes the well received single "Lord Knows" as well as a cover of Strawberry Switchblade's "Trees and Flowers".
