"I Played a Role" is the first track and video from "The Other Person is You", El May's forthcoming album. The video premiered on Entertainment Weekly and is now available on YouTube.

El May is the nom de plume of LA-based Australian musician Lara Meyerratken. The concept for the "I Played a Role" video, directed by Yaara Sumeruk, was to approach strangers in New York and have them listen to the song and dance to it, in the street, with Lara. The dreamy slow-motion results are engaging, enigmatic and utterly charming.

"The Other Person is You" will be released on Lojinx in Europe in August 2014. "I Played a Role", the first single, is out now in all good digital stores.

Nina Persson, singer and songwriter of iconic Swedish group The Cardigans, has released her new music video "Food For The Beast". Premiered on Stereogum, the video is now also on YouTube.

"Food For The Beast" has established itself as a fan favourite both live and as a highlight on her debut solo album, Animal Heart. The video was made in Sweden and directed by Swedish director Tomas Melinder.

"The video for 'Food For The Beast' was made by these amazing people at Top Dollar in my home town Malmo. A great example of how creativity and imagination can't be bought", espouses Nina.

Animal Heart is out now on Lojinx CD, LP & digital.

We're excited to welcome Danish musician Hannah Schneider to Lojinx. Her unique brand of electro dream pop can be savoured on the new Lay Of The Land EP that's released in the UK today.

Hannah creates melancholic and playful pop, crafted with a love for the singer/songwriter tradition and a fascination with electronic sounds and samples.

We'll have more news on Hannah's forthcoming album soon. Meanwhile, join Hannah on facebook, twitter, instagram and enjoy her music on soundcloud and youtube.

They Might Be Giants have pulled off the seemingly inconceivable - they have continued to work, create and evolve musically, artistically and uninterrupted for 30 YEARS. During this time, the two-time GRAMMY winning Brooklyn originals diversified into television & film music—often with award-winning results—and have 16 vital studio albums under their belt.

They Might Be Giants Idlewild In celebration of the last 10 years of the band’s remarkable run, They Might Be Giants are releasing Idlewild, a 17-song compilation album named for their own US label, Idlewild Recordings.

"Idlewild: A Compilation" is neither a "best of" nor a rarities set. It is an ultra-vivid illustration of the bands prodigious output and singular musical vision. From the spare, folkie chug of "Words Are Like", which originally appeared as part of TMBG’s internet-only collaboration with eMusic back in the dot.com era glory days of 2001, to the propulsive, dance floor groove of "You're On Fire", from last year’s Nanobots release, the scope of Idlewild is as wide as it is beguiling.

They Might Be Giants' album Idlewild will be release on Lojinx in Europe on 26th May and is available for pre-order now.
