ABOUT APY LANDS LA

The curated show will exhibit contemporary works by a group of primarily female Aboriginal artists from the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (Translating as the People who speak Pitjantjatjara and Yankunytjatjara dialects) Lands. This area is located in remote Central Australia in the far northern tip of South Australia. The exhibit comprises painted depictions of the transcendental and its transubstantiation into the material world. These works reflect a new direction in Indigenous art that refers to an ancient mythology still pertinent and very much a part of contemporary art today.

The APY Art Centre Collective is a group of 10 Indigenous owned and governed enterprises. It is a formidable group of the most celebrated and ambitious Indigenous art studios in Australia – all exploring a diverse range of mediums, to express and share their Tjukurpa (Dreaming Stories), which have been passed down from their ancestors.

For the Indigenous peoples of Australia, Dreamtime functions as a way to remember the past, understand the present, and interpret the future. “Australian Aboriginal art was the last great movement of the 20th century, that began 60,000 years earlier,” said the late Robert Hughes. The artists featured in APY LANDS LA: Central Desert Painters of Australia, strive to communicate this metaphysical and spiritual world-view by illustrating the remarkable stories of Dreamtime.

APY LANDS: Central Desert Painters of Australia will be on view from
May 3 – May 30, 2019
Tuesday – Saturday
10am – 5pm

Birdman & Juvenile “Just Another Gangsta”

BIRDMAN & JUVENILE RELEASE NEW ALBUM Just Another Gangsta AVAILABLE TODAY

Available at All Digital Retailers Now

Nodding to the golden age of Cash Money Records, Birdman & Juvenile team up to release their collaborative album J.A.G. at all digital retailers today.

Short for “Just Another Gangster,” both the album title and lead single “J.A.G.” take you back to the bouncy bling era of the label by reuniting legendary Co-Founder and multi-platinum rapper Birdman with Southern luminary and fellow icon Juvenile. The larger-than-life music video already surpassed 4.3 million YouTube/VEVO views, and the song impacted radio in February where it continues rising.

On the track, these two New Orleans titans lock into a lyrical back-and-forth before delivering a chanting refrain over a slick bass line and steady beat. With a whole lot of swag and style. It’s as infectious and icy as anything they’ve ever done together, and it evokes the timeless nature of their chemistry initially honed by way of collaborations from dozens of classic releases.

“J.A.G.” is stacked with bold and big bangers. “Dreams” featuring Choppa showcases more slick Southern flows over acoustic guitar and piano. Choppa brings his own fire to the track as Juvenile turns up with another hummable hook. “Broke” unfolds with street wit and charm, while a bluesy guitar lead gives way to rhyme fireworks on the nostalgic “Back Then.” “From The Bottom” could serve as a mission statement for either Juvenile or Birdman as it documents the come-up to triumph in vivid detail. The album concludes on the hard-hitting and bounce-driven “One Two.”

The entire project sees Birdman and Juvenile rapping with focus and fire that’s always fresh. Additionally, it features production courtesy of Rich Gang in-house team.

Birdman and Juvenile recently engaged a full court press blitz that saw them appearing on multiple television and radio shows. They notably guested on The Wendy Williams Show to perform the title track and speak on the project. Additionally, Juvenile guested on The Breakfast Club, and his appearance racked up a staggering 100K views in under six hours as it approached the 400k mark now.

Be on the lookout for more big news and moves from Birdman, Juvenile, and Cash Money Records in 2019.

AMS Vans/Athlete Award Van

Atlanta-based AMS Vans teamed up with the Aimee Copeland Foundation and FODAC (Friends of Disabled Adults and Children) to present the keys for a wheelchair accessible minivan to the winner of an essay contest. The winner, Kendra Allen, is an Athens Tech college student whose essay detailed the challenges of growing up with cerebral palsy and her dream to help others with disabilities.

Allen’s prize is a 2012 Honda Odyssey wheelchair accessible minivan with $7,500 worth of reconditioning donated by AMS Vans, which will also provide free oil changes and tire rotation for as long as she owns the vehicle.

“I am so thankful for everyone who helped me get this minivan because it means I will finally be able to use my power wheelchair outside my home, making it so much easier to get to class at Athens Tech, see friends and eventually start my own business,” said Allen.

“AMS Vans is thrilled to help Kendra become more independent and we are inspired by her dedication to finish school and fulfill her dreams to create her own company to help others,” said Mark Shaughnessy, CEO of AMS Vans.

The minivan was donated by Aimee Copeland, a competitive swimmer and counselor who lost her hands, right foot and left leg from a flesh-eating bacterial infection in 2012. After receiving the vehicle as gift, she found new independence, started the Aimee Copeland foundation and became the official spokesperson for FODAC.

“This van changed my life and gave me freedom of mobility, and now I am paying it forward so that Kendra may have a better quality of life,” said Copeland. “We could not have done this without AMS Vans and FODAC, and I am grateful for their support.”

“As an advocate for those with disabilities we see first-hand how reliable transportation can change a person’s life by connecting them more readily to work and the community and we are excited to see Kendra succeed,” said Chris Brand, president and CEO of FODAC.

Allen’s essay was selected from 60-entries submitted to the contest that ran from January 7, 2019 to February 7, 2019. Her essay has been posted in full on the Aimee Copeland Foundation Blog.

LEADR releases brand new single 11:11

Dreamy dance-electronic artist and producer, LEADR just dropped his new single “11:11” today and we can’t be more excited. Make sure to check out his new song and more about him below!

LEADR’s sound harmonizes his ethereal and idyllic vocals with live instrumentation and atmospheric electronic beats. His last single, “Waves,” caught the attention of multiple music outlets, including Billboard Magazine Online. While Waves sound is described as more of a relaxed and chill vibe, 11:11 takes a 180 turn with its upbeat sounds for the end of summer.

“The time 11:11 is so special to me. When I see it, my thoughts, wishes and beliefs are manifested into truth.” LEADR wrote and produced the track with singer/songwriter TXVX, who is also featured on it. LEADR is so excited to share this next single because of the true meaning behind the song, following your dreams and dedicating yourself to creating a path to your dreams come true. Besides his new single LEADR is also currently working on his debut EP.

Overall, LEADR’s goal is to make people feel good and inspire people’s lives through his music. “With everything that is going on in the world, we need music to uplift each other. Follow your dreams because you only have one life to live. Make it count!”

Zjál to Release First Single

Pop and R&B artist Zjál is set to release her brand new single, “Home,” later this month and we can’t wait. The singer’s pop-filled-soul sound is intoxicating and is sure to be hit. More info on Zjál and her new music below!

Zjál grew up on a secluded farm in Adelaide, Australia. Her heritage is Lebanese, yet her family held a progressive outlook. Zjál naturally gravitated to the arts growing up. “Creating is my drug, words are my remedy.” Needing a way to express herself and escape, music became the form of connection which breaks all barriers for Zjál.

The EP, also named “Home,” is set to come out later this year and has a beautifully interwoven mix of sensual, strong, and fun elements. The first single off the EP, “Home” definitely shows Zjál’s sensitive and vulnerable side. “Home is a love song, about longing to be back in my lover’s arms after having to travel and be apart to follow my dreams, when the world gets too loud all I long for is being with the man I love. Nothing means anything without love.” The song also represents Zjál’s inner sanctuary and meditative state, the place she can retreat and feel safe.

“This EP has been a rebirth for me,” Zjál shares. “Through the process of creating it, I’ve awoken to trust and faith—it feels like a rebirth. This music has helped me take walls down in order to make truthful music. Only when you’re vulnerable can you connect with people, and that’s all I’ve ever wanted to do.” Zjál hopes for “Home” to be the first step of her music creating a career of longevity and connection with others.

Above all, Zjál’s main goal as an artist is to reach a position in her career where her presence “can elevate vibrations and contribute to a higher state of consciousness.” She aims to live her truth and be a positive influence in the world. Staying true to her own beliefs, Zjál’s message to her fans is to always stay unique to her you were were born to be. “Rebel against programmed consciousness. Remain authentically yourself.”

DREAMS x SILENCE

Highly danceable, super-sticky, deceptively simple blend of electrified pop” – LA Weekly

 

No One Defeats Us’ funky dance-rock groove” – Stereogum

 

Booming electro-anthem” – Idolator

 

Following their explosive debut song “No One Defeats Us,” DREAMS have dropped their new track “Silence” today via Astralwerks. On the day of their first ever live performance at Coachella, “Silence” reveals a darker side and pulse to DREAMS, led by the brooding vocals of Daniel Johns. The duo also shares a striking video for the track, which can be viewed HERE.

 

Purchase or Stream “Silence” HERE.

 

A much-anticipated debut live set at Coachella this weekend promises high drama and a truly unmissable performance. The only band ever to be booked for the festival before releasing any music, the duo is the highest-billed Australian band. DREAMS will perform tonight at 8:40pm on the Mojave Stage. The duo will also perform next Friday, April 20. Fans can view their performance via the live stream on the Official Coachella YouTube Channel.

 

“Silence’ is a song which came to us after the Charlottesville riots. It broke our hearts to see the violence and hatred that occurred. We wanted this song to elevate the people, let their voices be heard, inspire them with courage and bravery.” Luke Steele (aka Miracle) says of the track. Daniel Johns (aka Dr Dreams), says “The live version is out of this world and we cannot wait to debut it at Coachella. »

 

DREAMS is the realization of a long-time friendship and musical kinship between these two iconic Australian artists. Daniel Johns is best known as the front man of Silverchair whilst the enigmatic Luke Steele fronts Empire of The Sun and The Sleepy Jackson. The artists first met in 2004 when Luke’s band The Sleepy Jackson supported Silverchair on their sold-out Diorama tour.

 

With over ten million albums sold worldwide and an undefeatable twenty-nine ARIA Awards won between both of their respective acts, the pedigree of Daniel and Luke’s new collaboration is unquestionable.

 

Since Silverchair’s debut release “Tomorrow” in 1994, Daniel has taken home a record twenty-one statues, the most of any Australian artist in ARIA history. Daniel has also won APRA Songwriter of the Year three times, and impressively, Silverchair is the only Australian act to have all of their studio albums, five in total, debut at #1 on the ARIA chart.

 

Sweeping the ARIAs clean in 2008 was Luke Steele’s Empire of the Sun, taking home gongs for Best Album, Best Single, Best Group and Best Pop Release. With a total of eight ARIAs and two APRA song writing awards to date, Empire of the Sun has gone from strength to strength internationally, including a spectacular sold out performance at Hollywood Bowl in 2015, in front of an audience of 17,000 US fans.
